Qorvo Cuts Production Losses with Application Intelligence Platform

first_imgQorvo’s engineering and semiconductor wafer fabrication facilities in North America, Europe, and Asia depend on business-critical .NET applications that tie engineering systems to the manufacturing environment that drives wafer fabrication on their shop floors. Performance hindrances to any one of their applications can cause a bottleneck in the fabrication plant or on the shop floor, resulting in late delivery, lots of overtime, and lost revenue. As the company continued to grow, their existing applications could not scale.After writing their own application monitoring code and performing manual analysis in an ongoing attempt to address application and database performance issues, Qorvo began looking at application performance monitoring solutions. The semiconductor manufacturer chose AppDynamics after comparing the capabilities of the Application Intelligence Platform and other APM competitors.The fact that AppDynamics offers solutions for monitoring distributed applications and provides an integrated view across applications, databases, and platforms was a huge advantage over competitive offerings. Their legacy application spans databases, storage, active directories, and a vast assortment of endpoints. Other APM vendors couldn’t figure out how to implement their solution or scale it in their complex environment.Qorvo estimates that this Application Performance Management has helped their team reduce interruptions to production by at least 60 to 70 percent. This Application Intelligence Platform gives them true end-to-end visibility across application transactions. They can determine the amount of time taken for each and every request, and drill down into each function and locate the exact line of code causing issues.AppDynamics’ Chief Technology Officer Bhaskar Sunkara said, “Qorvo is in an exciting and critical technology sector, creating and manufacturing the semiconductors that make advanced communications possible. We’re pleased that they have chosen AppDynamics to give them the visibility, control, and insight into their application performance that they need to ensure efficient operations with little downtime. Our solution will scale effortlessly with them as their business continues to rapidly expand. It’s a great fit, and we’re proud to be on their team.”last_img read more

Former Browns “Starting” QB, Returns To Old Team

first_img Vince McKee Related TopicsDeShone Kizer The “former” Browns signal caller signed a one year deal with Denver, a franchise he spent four years with after being drafted by John Elway in 2012.  He left Denver following the 2015 Superbowl season as the Houston Texans were foolish enough to sign him to a multi year deal that still has 16 million left on it for this season.To make room for the QB, the Broncos sent Shane Ray to the injured reserve for the next 8 weeks with an injured hip.  This entire saga proves why pencils have erasers and how the second the Broncos found a way not to have to pay him, they would instantly bring him back.Meanwhile, that Browns fan out there with the jersey of all the QB names listed on the back of it, has to ask himself when it comes to the possible addition of Osweiler, do I or don’t I?center_img Well, he only played in two official games as a Cleveland Brown, neither of them during the regular season and he is already gone.  It is the quickest we have run a QB out of town since 1999, but the Browns front office and coaching staff clearly had little time to waste on Brock Osweiler and now he is out.The Browns are going all in with DeShone Kizer after a 4-0 preseason and an impressive camp from the rookie Quarterback out of Notre Dame.That in itself isn’t “news”, as it happened on Saturday, but what is news is what took place earlier today.  After a bitter split with John Elways and the front office of the Denver Bronco’s following their Super Bowl winning season in 2015, they have clearly kissed and made up.It was a strange journey, but as of earlier today, Brock Osweiler is now a Bronco once again.  He stint in Cleveland was short and won’t be remembered.  It has been since the glory days of Bernie Kosar that the Browns were able to celebrate weekly, a great signal caller!  And he has been gone since 1993.last_img read more

Jim Voss, of Kenai, launched his app Alaska FishTopia this summer. Voss owns Alaska Boat Rental in Soldotna, and is a local fishing guide. Voss: “Well there is a lot of information that we all need when we want to go fishing. From the local weather to determining how we are going to go dress and act for the day, all the way down to the tides, and currents, and the fish counts. The key to a really successful day of fishing is knowing when to fish both on the day and time, and where to fish.”center_img FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A local area Kenai Peninsula resident has created a smartphone app designed to help anglers and guides have equal access to local fishing information. Voss:“Our target market is anybody living in Alaska and enjoying the outdoors. The app is clearly fishing centric, but it goes well beyond that.

McElwain squares off against former boss

first_imgThe last time Jim McElwain squared off against his former boss Nick Saban was in 2013 when McElwain was head coach of Colorado State. Alabama defeated the Rams 31-6 win.The last time Jim McElwain squared off against his former boss Nick Saban was in 2013 when McElwain was head coach of Colorado State. Alabama defeated the Rams 31-6 win.TUSCALOOSA — In less than a week, both the Alabama and Florida football teams will walk into the spacious Georgia Dome and stare up at the rafters and the lights that surround the home of the Southeastern Conference title game.It’s a moment of reflection and realization for what a team has already accomplished, and what is still left to achieve.Jim McElwain has made that same walk twice before, both times while serving as the Crimson Tide’s offensive coordinator. The first experience didn’t end so well as the upstart Gators — led by quarterback Tim Tebow and head coach Urban Meyer — knocked off Alabama 31-20 en route to winning the 2008 BCS National Championship.Of course, McElwain and the 2009 Crimson Tide would have their revenge, overtaking No. 1 Florida 32-13 for the SEC title to start an incredible run of success that saw Alabama claim three of the next four national championships, beginning with that 2009 BCS title.It’s why McElwain — now in his first season as Florida’s head coach after a three-year stint at Colorado State — holds the SEC championship game in such high regard.“Shoot, I was able to coach in a couple of national championship games, but that SEC Championship game has more energy and more juice than that national championship game,” McElwain said last week. “And that’s the way it should be for the best conference in college football.”Florida head coach Jim McElwain will take his Gators to Atlanta to face Alabama on Saturday.Florida head coach Jim McElwain will take his Gators to Atlanta to face Alabama on Saturday.McElwain will lead his Eastern Division winning Gators (10-2, 7-1 SEC) against his former team, No. 2 Alabama (11-1, 7-1 SEC), when the two programs meet in the 2015 SEC Championship (2:30 p.m.) Saturday in Atlanta. And the opportunity isn’t lost on the self-deprecating 53-year-old head coach from Missoula, Montana.“To be a part of an SEC Championship game, with two storied programs — obviously, the University of Alabama, which, let’s face it, gave me the opportunity to be here at the University of Florida — and then to have the Gators playing them, that’s something special,” McElwain said.This year’s game will be Alabama’s fifth appearance since 2008, nevertheless, the mystique of being there isn’t lost on the Tide.“It’s something special to me to be able to play in the game and have an opportunity to maybe win a Championship,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “That’s what your players work for, and that’s certainly what our guys have worked for all year long and certainly something that we’re certainly pleased to have the opportunity to do.”It’s also not lost on Alabama how hard it is to repeat as SEC champs, something it accomplished with last season’s 42-13 drubbing of Missouri.No team has repeated as conference champions since Tennessee in 1997 and 1998 — including when the Tide kept the Gators from repeating in 2009.“I just think it speaks to the quality of the league and how many good teams there always are in this league,” Saban said of the streak of no repeat champions. “There’s certainly a lot of good teams this year. Florida’s one of the best teams I’ve seen. … So I think this is just an indication of the quality of the league and how many good teams there are.”The last time Jim McElwain coached in an SEC title game, it was against LSU in 2012 as a member of Nick Saban’s coaching staff. McElwain will square off against his former boss as coach of the Gators on Saturday in the SEC title game.The last time Jim McElwain coached in an SEC title game, it was against LSU in 2012 as a member of Nick Saban’s coaching staff. McElwain will square off against his former boss as coach of the Gators on Saturday in the SEC title game.Not that Saban is allowing the team to even consider what an accomplishment it would be to win back-to-back conference crowns, and, at the same time, assuring itself a second-straight appearance in the College Football Playoff.“I think this team is focused on what they can accomplish as a group, what they’ve worked hard for all year long to try to accomplish, and I don’t think they think about who won back-to-back championships,” Saban said. “I don’t think they think that winning last year’s championship is going to have anything to do with winning this year’s championship game.”Nevertheless, the opportunity coming Saturday is one that both programs know can help define not just this team, but the ones before it and the ones after it, as was the case in 2008 and 2009 for McElwain.“All I can say is wow. It was amazing in both years we were in it,” McElwain said. “I think what the difference is … you’ve got two fan bases that split the stadium. The energy that’s in there (is electric) because they’re all true fans. … (And) the place it’s located, everybody can get to. I got to tell you, it’s something special.”last_img read more
