New Publication Provides Farmers and Fisher Folks Grip on Climate Change

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 27, 2014

The global community’ awareness of climate change prevails through rampant crusades and comprehensive studies, most of which are hypothetical theories backed by empirical evidence of the trends on the topic. Moved by the vastness of the subject, author Gabriel Umoh and his colleagues collectively published “ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE: Agricultural Ecosystems and Gender Dimension.”

“Adaptation to Climate Change” is a product of over four years of painstaking and rigorous research bringing together empirical knowledge on farmer’s adaptation to climate change in a developing country. Detailed as well are the analyses of various dimensions of climate change on dryland and wetland agriculture from developing country’s perspectives.

It discusses climate change from broad perspectives of the book drawing from practical field experience of the actors within the sector. It begins from sound theories and framework of climate change adaptation science, presents examples of how people are affected, could be affected, what they are doing and proffer actionable solutions for sustainable adaptation.    

The book bids for the readers to act on stance of climate change. It is, therefore, a must for all genuinely interested in addressing the growing problem of climate change impacts in the most vulnerable section of the world – the developing countries.

Scientel® Gensonix® NoSQL DB For Big Data Featured As June 2014 Cover Story by CIOReview/India Magazine

Bingham Farms, MI (PRWEB) June 25, 2014

Every day that goes by, all analytical organizations are concluding that Big Data is increasing by leaps and bounds and predicting that systems of today will not be able to keep up with upcoming demands. Systems are needed that are highly efficient as well as ones that can grow to large configurations, to be able to store and manage Big Data of any size. In this regard, Scientel clearly stands out as a leader, as one of the few companies in the world with the advanced technical capabilities required to take advantage of the Big Data market over the next decade–which has added $ 156 Billion to the US economy last year alone.

“CIOReview/India” magazine focuses on leaders in various businesses and technologies, and chose Scientel to feature on the cover of its June, 2014 issue because Scientel stands out in various ways, particularly with regard to Big Data capabilities. Scientel stands out as one of the first companies to market NoSQL-based systems technology—and cost effective handling of Big Data depends on NoSQL. Scientel noticed vulnerabilities and limitations of the SQL database, and these conclusions became fairly well established worldwide in the last decade. Scientel pushed its technology to demonstrate the fact that ultimately in the Big Data arena, SQL technologies are not going to suffice, and we will be needing new technologies like NoSQL.

Scientel storage mechanisms are uniquely efficient, in both software and hardware. Therefore, Scientel systems can store more data more cost-effectively than all other SQL and NoSQL competitors. Also, Scientel can scale to very large systems so that customers will not experience “designed-in obsolescence”, and they can keep expanding their hardware without having to replace it. Further, Scientel incorporates Massively Parallel Processing in its technology where many servers act effectively in parallel, providing very fast and very highly efficient solutions.

Scientel, under the leadership of Norman T. Kutemperor, began its journey in database management way before the Internet era, when the team started developing DBMS to address the small-to-medium business enterprise environments in 1978. Although Oracle and IBM released SQL-based Relational DBs in the early 1980s, as far back as 1985, Scientel was already developing NoSQL-type tools for Unstructured DB Analytics, and in 1988, released an initial Non-SQL version of a DB. “By then IBM and Oracle had already established SQL standards. Around 1989, our research uncovered Big Data in the soon to arrive Internet era; and identified major vulnerabilities with SQL DBs; thus we were able to accurately predict the limitations of SQL for Big Data,” says Kutemperor. Though Big Data was a term still in its infancy, Scientel proceeded with unfailing commitment to Non-SQL DBMS research and released the Gensonix NoSQL DB in 1993. The product included distinct procedural NoSQL capabilities for structured as well as unstructured data which were way ahead of its time.

Scientel has built its services based upon four core products that are backed up to two platforms. The product range includes the ECMS system, which is a first of its kind data management tool to decipher both structured and unstructured content. The DBIS Intranet, built by the Scientel team, provides an interactive, web-like Supply chain Management System designed to run on the client’s intranet. Thirdly, the DBIS e-Commerce product provides enterprises with an easier way to transact businesses over the Internet with a secured server for protection of critical data. Perhaps one of the major differentiating factors of Scientel would be its ability to scale massively. The Scientel base level Large Data Warehouse Appliance (LDWA) machine designated LDWA2200 system has been integrated with over 172 CPU cores, which easily matches the size of an IBM series Z mainframe.

The Gensonix suite is the flagship platform of the organization that provides a Highly Scalable Server Environment capable of handling Big Data requirements of any size. “Although it has similar capabilities found in standard, SQL–based database management systems, its power, flexibility and scalability can do so much more,” points out Kutemperor. For large scale enterprises, taking the Gensonix capabilities to the next level is Scientel’s LDWA series that has been optimized to run the Gensonix Enterprise NoSQL DBMS to provide management and maintenance of super databases which can range into trillions of transaction records and billions of customers. Thus, the combination of the 4 product lines, coupled with the company’s three decade old expertise in Big Data, makes Scientel’s offerings a force to reckon with in the data sciences and analytics market today.

Bottom-line, Scientel provides complete, single-source, Big Data system solutions, including hardware, DBMS software, and applications based on a highly-advanced, user-friendly, NoSQL DB language structure and flexible data models that can scale cost-effectively to very large configurations for all Big Data requirements.

About Scientel Information Technology, Inc.

Scientel Information Technology, Inc. is a U.S.-based, international, systems technology company, operational since 1977. Scientel also designs/produces highly optimized high end servers, which can be bundled with its “GENSONIX® ENTERPRISE” DBMS software, as a single-source supplier of complete systems for Big Data environments. Scientel also customizes hardware and software for specific applications resulting in higher performance.

Scientel’s specialty is advanced NoSQL DBMS design and applications/systems integration for advanced business processes. This includes applications for Big Data, commercial intranets, Supply Chain management, IT consulting, support, etc., along with “beyond mainframe-level” Large Data Warehouse Appliance hardware/systems.

GENSONIX® allows very user-friendly data manipulation capabilities found in standard, SQL-based, database management systems, but it goes beyond. It is truly an “ALL-in-One SQL” — an “All Data Management System” in the form of an ultra-flexible, NoSQL DBMS of perfectly general capabilities and application potentials. It can also function in concert with mainline SQL systems to efficiently handle both structured and unstructured data as a large data warehouse repository. However, it can handle heavy database loads by itself with the aid of the GENSONIX® NSQL©™ query/procedural language. GENSONIX® supports both telnet as well as http interfaces. GENSONIX® is capable of handling trillions of rows/transactions for billions of customers, which is a huge advantage in “truly Big Data” structured applications.

Business customers can take advantage of Scientel’s capabilities in advanced Business Intelligence and Data Analytics to grow their business by handling Big Data more cost-effectively and with greater insights to remain competitive. Scientific, government, and similar organizations can use these capabilities to efficiently process Big Data, instead of being swamped by it. And, Scientel’s Enterprise Content Management & Search solutions can vastly simplify storage, access, and management of any kind of digitized data for any size organization.

Apocalyptic Future in Biblical Prophecy Exposed by Researcher

Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) June 13, 2014

An eye-opening interpretation of the book of Revelation has been uncovered by researcher and author Roberta Marshall. Literal reading of the ancient text of prophecy has revealed descriptions of modern disasters, wars, and personalities. Among the ideas presented is that the major city of Babylon will be nuked at the start of a war. Also, earth changes will be caused by the wandering celestial object known today as planet X which is referred to in scripture as Wormwood. The mark of the beast will be a system to ration precious commodities after the devastation caused by planet X. During that time of tribulation, Satan, other fallen angels, and their earthly children will seize global domination. The complete findings have been published in a new e book titled “Revelation: Greatest Hits” available now at Amazon.

The author maintains that her findings are more of a translation than an interpretation. She has put herself in John’s place, seeing what he saw on the island of Patmos around the year 96 A.D. in his visions. She has then translated those visions into modern ideas and concepts. John’s visions are composed mostly of technology and events he could not understand such as global economic collapse, modern warfare with missiles and nuclear war, celestial events, the beast, 666, a war in heaven, and the end of the earth. Concepts such as airplanes and radio were unknown to him. But he reported his visions as best he could, leaving the interpretation to those of us who inhabit the times for which they were written.

Events in the book of Revelation are reported to be in sequence. Though exact dates are not given, once things ramp up, one event will follow another just as written. There are no hidden codes, no confusing convoluted timelines, and no lost chapters. It’s true meanings are not reserved for some ancient scribe sitting at a desk in a cave library under the Vatican. The near future of the human race on earth is simply and completely told, even to the end of the earth itself. Just as John faithfully wrote the entirety of his prophetic visions, the author has faithfully studied them for what she believes them to be: a precious gift of a look ahead.

Siemens PLM World 2014: PARTsolutions Enables Teamcenter and NX Users to “Check-In” and Search Standard Parts

PARTsolutions Enables Teamcenter and NX Users to “Check-In” and Search Standard Parts

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) June 10, 2014

CADENAS PARTsolutions is demonstrating the power and versatility of their Standard Parts Management (SPM) platform at Siemens PLM World June 16 -19 in Orlando, Florida. PARTsolutions SPM operates as a standalone platform or in tandem with a PLM system, such as Siemens Teamcenter. The platform helps engineering teams manage their standard and supplier parts, so they can spend more time on value-added design. PARTsolutions Standard Parts Management (SPM) gives engineers the power to search standard parts, as well as sort and classify, like no other platform can.

“PARTsolutions SPM platform beefs-up the power of your organization’s PLM system,” says Tim Thomas, CEO of CADENAS PARTsolutions. “Our powerful classification capabilities ensure the ‘parts vault’ is clean and accurate, removing duplicates and organizing components in a much more intuitive way. Once the ‘vault’ is clean, our system confirms the accuracy of parts for designers to choose from in the future, while adding powerful capabilities to search standard parts and speed up their specification process. Engineers won’t have to waste time hunting for the right part, they can quickly find what they need, drop it in their design and move on, that’s value-added design!”

Implementation of SPM technologies establishes enterprise-wide standardization for all part types, resulting in:

    Elimination of duplicate parts
    Reduction of engineering re-work
    Increased productivity
    Guided selection of company approved parts and suppliers
    Part data visibility across all systems (ERP, PLM, PDM and CAD)
    Compliance for industry standard / commodity parts
    Greater order accuracy and procurement efficiency

PARTsolutions SPM helps engineers and purchasers to find, reduce and manage standard, supplier and internal standard parts, using a simple interface. Using PARTsolutions, NX users have access to 3D CAD models from more than 600 certified manufacturer catalogs. When importing 3D CAD models from PARTsolutions into NX, the system avoids duplicates by automatically “checking parts in” to Teamcenter PLM. When a component is necessary for a design in NX it is not created again by PARTsolutions, but directly uploaded from Teamcenter. This optimized process helps to reduce the number of redundant parts in the library, saving time and resources for the organization.

About CADENAS PARTsolutions

CADENAS PARTsolutions is a leading provider of next generation 3D part catalog management and sales configuration solutions. For large manufacturers, CADENAS PARTsolutions provides centralized 3D standard part catalogs making it easy for global design teams to find, reuse, and control standard and proprietary parts. For component manufacturers, CADENAS PARTsolutions provides 3D part catalog with CAD download technology to increase sales lead generation and to ensure that components get “designed in” to OEM products.
