A Panasonic ampliou o relacionamento com a Hendrick Motorsports com um novo acordo plurianual que inclui o patrocínio principal para a equipe n° 24 de Jeff Gordon, quatro vezes campeão e atual líder de pontuação da NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. A Panasonic será apresentada como a principal patrocinadora da equipe n° 24 em duas corridas Sprint Cup anualmente e como parceira associada em todos os outros eventos. Será a primeira vez que a marca Panasonic aparecerá num carro de corrida desde que se juntou à Hendrick Motorsports como parceira tecnológica em 2007. O acordo cobre as etapas da NASCAR em 2014, 2015 e 2016.

O Panasonic Chevrolet SS n°24 de Gordon estreou em 22 de junho na Sonoma Raceway, Califórnia, e vai aparecer de novo em 31 de agosto, na Atlanta Motor Speedway. A marca Toughbook da Panasonic será exibida nos painéis laterais do carro em Sonoma.
"Para maximizar o valor de um patrocínio na NASCAR você precisa se associar com equipes e pilotos reconhecidos que exemplificam sua marca," disse Rance Poehler, Presidente da Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. "A Hendrick Motorsports e Jeff Gordon tem um histórico de excelência que é a perfeita combinação para a Panasonic e sua marca Toughbook. Somos parceiros tecnológicos da Hendrick Motorsports há muitos anos e, à medida que nossos negócios evoluem em direção de soluções e parcerias mais profundas com nossos clientes, este é um excelente momento para ampliar nosso relacionamento, saindo dos bastidores e indo para o carro nas pistas.”

Os computadores Toughbook da Panasonic desempenham um papel-chave nas operações das corridas. “Quando introduzimos os Toughbooks da Panasonic em nossos negócios, o chefe da equipe e os engenheiros imediatamente disseram que amam este produto”, declarou Chris Newsome, Gerente de Infrastrutura de TI & Instalações, Hendrick Motorsports. “Dependemos da Panasonic," acrescentou Newsome. A Hendrick Motorsports também utiliza atualmente a tecnologia Panasonic na sua unidade de Concord, incluindo camcorders profissionais, monitores de tela plana profissionais, televisões, sinalização digital e unidades de projeção. A equipe também usa os produtos de vídeo profissionais da Panasonic para apoiar as capacidades de produção de vídeo de uso interno. A Panasonic vai alavancar a parceria para promover soluções e produtos tecnológicos para os negócios.

A Panasonic já ajudou o Sonoma Raceway, onde o Panasonic Chevrolet SS fez sua estreia, a reduzir seu impacto ambiental com a instalação de um sistema de geração de energia solar que fornece aproximadamente 40% da energia necessária ao circuito.
"A Panasonic tem uma combinação de pessoal e produtos de categoria internacional”, disse Rick Hendrick, proprietário da Hendrick Motorsports. "Usamos sua tecnologia em toda nossa organização e ela nos oferece os melhores instrumentos possíveis em todas as áreas, da competição ao marketing e a TI. O fato de que eles veem mais oportunidades para seus negócios e querem ampliar o relacionamento é uma mensagem muito positiva."
Gordon, 42 anos, que cresceu na vizinha Vallejo, Califórnia, é um dos pilotos mais bem sucedidos na história da NASCAR, com um recorde de cinco prêmios na Sprint Cup, no Sonoma Raceway. Ele é quatro vezes campeão da Sprint Cup e suas 89 vitórias o classificam em terceiro lugar na lista de vitórias de todos os tempos. Em quinze corridas dessa temporada, ele obteve uma vitória, esteve cinco vezes entre os cinco primeiros e onze vezes entre os dez principais finalistas da série. "Estamos ansiosos para trabalhar com a Panasonic de uma nova forma e não posso pensar em melhor lugar para esta estreia que com a equipe n° 24", disse Gordon, antes da corrida em Sonoma. "Este é o próximo passo de uma parceria que já é bem sucedida, e vai ser agradável passar para outro nível. Esperamos começar com uma vitória para Panasonic e Toughbook neste fim de semana."

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
