Power and Associates4.  Thanks to the recognition of savvy consumers who count on VIZIO to deliver the best technology at the best value, we're consistently a top-selling brand of LED HDTVs overall in the U.S. and are currently America's #1 60+ inch HDTV company1," said Lily Knowles, VIZIO VP of Product Marketing.

Whether mounted on the wall, on a stand or in an entertainment center, these TVs look spectacular thanks to a slim outer bezel that lets users replace their old set with a larger screen within the same amount of cabinet or shelf space. The large E-Series models also feature an ultra-thin profile, less than two inches deep, and utilize LED backlighting with advanced local dimming technology for a superior Full HD 1080p picture that delivers deeper blacks and more vivid colors, all while consuming less energy than conventional flat-panel non-LED TVs.

"VIZIO had a strong position in the Smart TV category in North America during Q3'12 with the #1 share of units shipped."

"Of all the connected TV sets in the market, VIZIO's smart TV platform continues to be one of the easiest to use with lots of content options," said Dan Rayburn, Principal Analyst, Digital Media, Frost & Sullivan. "And considering their 60" smart TV set retails for under a grand, VIZIO's smart TV lineup is one of the best values in the market today."

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.
"I think that everyone recognizes that for IoT to really realize its full potential and value that it is about creating ecosystems and marketplaces and that no single vendor is able to support what is required," explained Esmeralda Swartz, VP, Marketing Enterprise and Cloud at Ericsson, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation.

How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys.

However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
