AA Ireland specializes in home, motor, and travel insurance and provides emergency rescue for people in their homes and on the road, attending to over 140,000 car break downs every year, 80% of which are fixed on-the-spot.
“In each of the last five years, the industry lost a quarter billion in motor insurance," says Colm Carey, chief analytics officer. "So, there's a huge push for new data, models, ways to segment and pick profitable customer types—and get a lot more sophisticated. Our goal is to optimize pricing, understand the types of customers we're bringing, and the types we're trying to attract. We would like to tie that across the business. Marketing will run a campaign, trying to attract a lot of customers, but maybe they're not the right type. "We wanted to step away from industry standard software and go with something that was powerful and future-proof. In 2016, we had an opportunity to analyze all software.

Wireless communications is on the cusp of the 5G revolution, which is widely touted as a boon for business and consumers. Change is coming, and that heralds significant challenges for government and its use of both fixed and mobile wireless networks. Here are six things agencies should know now about 5G.
Managing infrastructure has always brought frustration, headaches, and wasted time. That’s because IT professionals have to spend their days, nights, and weekends dealing with problems and manually tuning their infrastructure.
Traditional monitoring and support are too far removed from infrastructure, resulting in an endless cycle of break-fix-tune-repeat. Infrastructure powered by artificial intelligence, however, can overcome the limitations of humans and traditional tools.

While the shift from disk to digital offers tremendous potential opportunities, it also presents a host
of new challenges for gaming companies. As the online channel grows increasingly complex and the pace
of innovation accelerates, many companies struggle to keep up. Not only are there websites and storefronts
to manage, but also real-time gaming servers, large software downloads, and live-streamed competitions and
events. Games are transforming from fixed, boxed products to dynamic, ongoing services – with frequently
updated content, in-game micro-transactions, virtual goods and social interactions. Mobile adds another
dimension to the trend, as consumers increasingly look to play on smart phones and tablets – or on multiple
screens across devices.
To successfully navigate this complex and changing landscape, gaming companies need an agile,
high- performance infrastructure that allows them to turn the Internet into a reliable and effective
online distribution channel. This requires f
You’ve spent time and money to develop an impressive in-game experience and attract and acquire new players. You’ve studied your CPA and eCPI, tweaked key in-game events to drive retention and conversion, and you’ve got your marketing engine humming, focused on engagement.
Despite all this effort, you’re still not hitting your goals. Conversions are lower than expected. Churn is high. Something is not right, but you are not sure what it is.

Too often we hear that people want to move everything to the cloud. Unfortunately cloud is not the easy button, and it will not fix
every problem that you have with IT today. We have seen a large number of customers who do the math after moving to the cloud only to realize that it was more expensive to run in an offsite cloud than onsite IT. These customers then move away from offsite cloud for workloads that never should have left the building. The cloud in its many varieties is a good tool that can help organizations, but it needs to be thought out. This document is intended to help you move the right workloads to the right clouds in the best way possible and avoid the yoyo effect of moving twice and paying for the privilege of the experience.

This paper contrasts the features of medium voltage fixed circuit breaker switchgear (FCBS) and existing withdrawable circuit breaker switgear (WCBS) designs. Modern FCBS design elements that are discussed include an internal disconnect for isolation and grounding of circuits and interlocked operation among disconnect, breaker, and grounding switch for improved safety. Furthermore, features such as lower maintenance,
smaller footprint, and reduced life cycle costs that result from its simpler design will be explored. By comparing the traditional ANSI WCBS technology to that of the FCBS, this paper will demonstrate that the fixed design, which has gained widespread acceptance in global markets outside the United States, is a viable alternative to the withdrawable designs.

We have conditioned patients not only to expect opioids for pain relief, but to utilize more and more of them, and the addiction is both psychological and physical. To remedy the situation, a lot of policies and practices and behaviors must change around how the health care system approaches pain. But we do not yet have the data and
analytics we need to determine what specifically to do at the patient level or the policy level. Download this whitepaper to learn more about the resources available and how we can fix this issue.
More than ever, businesses are considering a cloud solution for their enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment over an on-premises system. Cloud technology appeals to these companies because updates and fixes occur automatically with little or no effort from internal IT staff, and because cloud-based solutions provide access to real-time data from anywhere. Employees want tools that make it easier for them to complete everyday tasks and make informed decisions that help the business grow.
Aberdeen’s research report, “Top Performers Know It’s Time to Migrate to Cloud ERP: Here’s Why and How,” uncovers the reasons successful companies are choosing cloud over on-premises ERP models. Download this SmartBite for a quick look at the report’s highlights.

a clear challenge: How do you protect exabytes of data that's strewn across global data centers,
computer rooms, remote offices, laptops, desktops, and mobile devices, as well as hosted by many
different cloud providers, without choking business agility, employee productivity, and customer

to identify malicious actions and respond to them in order to fix the issue, a process known as
Businesses of all sizes struggle with aging gear and lack of storage. In fact, in a 2018 Enterprise Storage Forum survey, IT and business leaders cited these concerns as their two biggest storage infrastructure challenges. But in mid- to enterprise-sized businesses, where every dollar counts, fixing these problems can feel like a tall order. If you’re going to upgrade your storage, you need to make sure you’re getting an efficient array that will help you maximize the value of your storage and your data.
We tested two storage arrays to see which could best help organizations meet these goals: the Dell EMC™ Unity™ XT 880F, and an all-flash offering in the entry-level market from a competitor (“Vendor A”). In our hands-on testing, the Dell EMC Unity XT array processed up to 93 percent more input/output operations per second (IOPS) in an 8KB 100% random read test and reduced 129 percent more data. It also carried out common management tasks faster, cutting the number of deployment steps i
Enterprise PC Buying Patterns Are Changing As Buyers Look To Improve Both Security And The Employee Experience At Once
As employee mobility increases globally and enterprise investments shift to tablets and laptops, organizations are assessing their ongoing investment in traditional PCs. One thing that remains clear is that enterprise PC buyers still value the security and performance offered by fixed computing solutions. They also say that new form factors like the micro PC help them deliver a better experience to employees, which they value at least as much as security. Learn more about Dell solutions powered by Intel®.

Technology is transforming how we do our jobs, and employees expect the business to accommodate
their work habits.
› Companies must identify roles and profiles and support their needs. Not every employee will
require the same devices to get their jobs done efficiently and effectively. It is paramount for
organizations to seek out specific devices to enable different worker personas.
› IT must become a trusted partner to keep security top of mind. Employees showed a lack of trust
toward IT when facing an issue with their device or ecosystem. It is imperative for IT to become part of
the solution and not the problem; otherwise, workers will find ways to go around security policies and
fix problems on their own, putting the firm at even more risk.
› Employees require a more complete ecosystem. Employees need not only devices to get their jobs
done effectively but an entire ecosystem as well. Without this, businesses will fall further behind in a
