Instagram Surpasses Pede Will Facebook As the World’s Largest

Instagram skyrocketed in popularity as more and share photos via a mobile application. As a start-up which is very expensive purchased by Facebook apparently did not make Instagram lose ambition. Instagram sure will be bigger than Facebook.

Facebook now has 1.1 billion users worldwide making it the largest social networking Worldwide. But they have a problem with the new user to hook a young age began to look at other services. In terms of feeling confident that Instagram can grow large if it is capable of growth right now.

“By definition, if Instagram continues to grow in this position then yes, it would be even greater,” said Kevin Systrom in an interview with Fast Company. “Instagram will be the largest in the world.”

In contrast to the explicitly Kevin so confident, Instagram founder fellow replied diplomatically. “I do not know, but it’s a good question. Basically there is no limit to the number so maybe one day we will match?” Mike Krieger said.

Instagram is currently still far less than Facebook, but the number of users has exceeded Twitter. While the video recording feature that was recently launched is also more popular than Twitter’s Vine has attended first.

Software as a Service or SaaS Technology Definition and Advantages

It truly is a more competitive world out there. Businesses know that to be at par with the competition and to grow at a rapid pace, they need to drive innovation within the company and find partner organizations that are cutting edge and would help them dominate the market quickly using practical, simple and cost effective methods.

Rob Purdy, CEO of Carlton Group, a leading edge technology provider, said that in 2011, the IT Channel Planet reported on an IBM survey which said that “mid size businesses are shifting investment priorities more towards innovation and growth and a significant portion of resources are likely to be allocated towards “SaaS” computing. About 70 % of the respondents intended to work with a local channel partner to help meet their technology objectives.”

What exactly is Software as a Service or “SaaS” Technology and why has it become important for businesses?

Information technology research and advisory company Gartner describes SaaS as software thats managed, delivered and owned remotely by providers which could be one or more. The infrastructure and the IT operations that support the applications are also outsourced to the vendor or a different provider. The application that the vendor delivers is an application thats based on one set of data definitions and common code which are then consumed in a one-to-many model by customers at any time. If the software needs to be installed on-premises using the companys infrastructure, that is not SaaS technology.

A Gartner Group estimate put the 2010 sales of this technology at $10 billion and the 2011 sales at about $12.1 billion. By 2015, the IT advisory company estimates that sales figures for SaaS will double the 2010 numbers.

Purdy, citing the Wikipedia definition, said that Saas is “a software delivery model in which software and its associated data are hosted centrally and accessed by users using a web browser over the internet.”

Why are more and more companies choosing Saas? Purdy said the following reasons:

1. He said that many large performance improvement companies have made the decision to migrate their client solutions to SaaS technology because it is much more affordable than traditional software to maintain, faster to implement and in most cases can be fully managed by the end customer.

2. SaaS technology delivers secure, affordable, scalable and easily accessible method to deliver employee recognition performance, loyalty training and even global reward management solutions all on a global scale.

3. SaaS keeps companies competitive. Purdy said, “Companies stand to reap massive rewards by incorporating SaaS solutions into their offerings. Performance improvement companies who do not offer SaaS solutions are less competitive simply because most enterprise level organizations are already using or considering using SaaS technology.

4. Software as a Service or “SaaS” Technology delivers simplicity. “In the words of Martin Henry Fisher, knowledge is a process of piling up facts,” Purdy shared. “Wisdom lies in their simplification. And nothing speaks volumes like simplicity to your customers.”

Defining the word fashion

Do you even remember when the word fashion came into existence? At least for the last 20 years, I have been living with it. There is no particular origination of this world. From the time people have been wearing the clothes, they have trapped in this fashion world. It may be true that this fashion was not that overpowering over us in the last centuries. Now, there is no more scope left amongst the people.

The moment you step out of your home, there are examples set before you telling how much fashion has dominated the minds of people. There is always some kind of strange accessories on the body of the people which somehow changes their body language as well. Yes, that exactly has been termed as fashion. For instance, in the early youth, there is a trend of smoking. They do it because they find that it is cool to do it. In the real sense, it is not cool but they think it is. You cannot say anything because it is a democratic country. It is all about their individual choices and preferences.

Similarly, it is ones personal choice to wear any kind of accessories they want to. Some people feel that some particular colour emits positive energies to them. This is the reason that they choose all the accessories of that particular colour. These kinds of people do possess considerable knowledge in this field. On the other hand, there are some who hold some strange kind of love towards some particular things. For instance, some people are passionate about animal themed designer fashion jewelry.

Only when you do a close analysis of the types of fashion jewelry, you can come up with some exciting observations. For example, the kind of fashion jewelry one wears depicts his/her fashion identity or even the tastes of that particular person. One must be too romantic if one wears the accessories related to teddy bears, or soft toys.

If we leave apart the jewelry concerns, bags are also an important accessory for any girl. With the environmental concerns coming into the picture, girls are inclining towards jute bags these days. With the increasing demand, the jute bags manufactures have also experimented with their patterns. Jute bags are now available in various colours as well as designs. They are reasonable in rates so that every sensible person can afford it. I am sorry but there is a myth that rich people have too much money to opt for jute bags.

Call Center Outsourcing for the Health Care Sector

Basically, call center outsourcing provides quite a number of organizational advantages for the health care sector. A good call center outsourcing can provide health care organizations the time to focus their attention on the more important aspect of providing health care services rather than spending half of the manpower on answering calls. When this particular task is eliminated, the organization and its entire human resource can generally focus their time on improving their competencies while providing a good customer service in a cost effective manner.

So if you understand your need for call center outsourcing, you must know that there are several vendors and outsourcing providers you can choose from. The number of options you have in the market will make it a lot easier for your health care organization to find the right provider that can offer a diverse range of quality call center services and using top of the line technology in order to make call center outsourcing more efficient cost effective both on the part of the provider and the client. But then again, it is also important for your organization to choose a company that can also offer a professional service using highly trained call center agents because health care is a serious business and it is important to find a provider that have qualified staff to handle the volume of calls that can be a matter of life of death.

When looking for call center outsourcing company, there are several things that have to be considered in order to ensure that the provider will be able to deliver the quality service you need for your health care organization. And since you are in the health care industry, it is highly important for the call center provider to have a vast experience in the health care sector. Although some vendors may actually claim that they are the right team for your outsourcing requirements, you must conduct a comprehensive evaluation with regards to the real capacity of the company to handle important calls and inquiries regarding the health care industry.

It would also be a major advantage if the call center provider has major experience in HMOs and has worked with different pharmaceutical companies and other related business industries handling telesales or telemarketing services that can satisfy your inbound or outbound requirements with the help of top of the line technology in the call center industry. It would be helpful if you can get access to evaluate the track record of the call center provider so your health care organization can verify their rate of success in handling telemarketing or telesales services for different related companies requiring call center outsourcing.

Depending on your actual requirement for call center outsourcing, your health care organization can certainly find a good provider that can guarantee for a quality service that significantly uplift the job competencies of your work environment.

Career and Tourism Opportunities in the Sports Industry

Recent trends in public interest towards sports has catalyzed new career opportunities in the sports industry, and this trend will also predictably grow. This trend can be thought of as a sign of our times. Families, teams, and individuals are on the move with different motives: some are in for the competition; others seek interaction with like-minded travelers, while others are lured as spectators. This trend may be due to the proliferation of sport supplies in the market which has helped greatly in sports development, and it has brought about the demand for a new team of professionals that will cater solely to the needs both of sports as an industry and as a novel area of tourism.

Tourism-wise, the sports industry have opened an opportunity for hospitality practitioners that are adept with the latest trends in sports that will be of interest to travelers. While practicing their profession as hospitality managers, these professionals suddenly found it that their being abreast with the latest in sports trends have put them in a position that enables them to better interact with their sports-minded clientele.

On the other hand, as an adjunct to the professional training of athletes, the need for professional writers of sporting books have also emerged. These writers of sporting books must be highly knowledgeable in a sense that they should not only have the skills expected of a writer but they should also possess a comprehensive command of their subject, thereby ensuring that they can can serve the industry better.

The sprouts industry also opened a door for technology experts who can engineer the production of sport supplies that will meet not only the physical need of an athlete but will also consider other aspects of a particular sport in a holistic manner. For instance, ergonomic engineers are highly in demand for the design of athletic support systems that will ensure the overall functionality of sports paraphernalia before its final production. Without the expertise of these professionals, the quality of sports supplies will suffer, and as a whole, it may also affect the quality of an athlete’s experience. Such a scenario may demoralize professional athletes and will be detrimental to the sports industry. The same is also true with amateur athletes.

The industry is also being pushed to a steady rate of growth by multimedia practitioners. Before the advent of multimedia technologies, training of athletes and sports amateurs depended solely on face to face sessions with a trainer or instructor, and also on the best sports books that can be had. Thanks to technology, even a minimal session with an instructor or trainer will suffice for an athlete or a sport amateur. The presence of videos makes up for time that an instructor or trainer is not around.

SuVolta’s transistor technology speed-power benefits are validated in ARM processor

The ARM Cortex-M series processor was manufactured with SuVolta’s Deeply Depleted Channel (DDC) technology on a 65 nm bulk planar CMOS DDC process. With SuVolta’s transistor technology, designers are able to reduce power or improve performance, depending upon design requirements.

“ARM’s heritage is based on low power, so technologies that can further improve power consumption, such as DDC technology from SuVolta, will always be welcomed by ARM and our Partners,” said Noel Hurley, vice president, Strategy and Marketing, Processor Division, ARM. “SuVolta has shown that the DDC technology, when incorporated into an ARM processor, can provide additional power reductions or a significant performance boost. As the Internet of Things continues to expand, innovative ultra-low power technology for Sensors and other devices will be vital to ensure that ARM remains at the forefront of this opportunity.”

When compared to an identical ARM Cortex-M0 processor manufactured in the conventional 65 nm process, with a 1.2 V supply voltage, the DDC transistor-based ARM implementation operating at 0.9 V demonstrates a 50 percent lower total power consumption at matched 350 MHz operating speed. There is also a 35 percent increased operating speed (performance) at matched power. In addition there is a 55 percent increased operating speed when operated at matched supply voltage.

“We’ve now validated the benefits of the DDC technology in a complex SoC, by combining the ARM Cortex-M0 CPUs with SRAM instances and various analog components,” explained David Kidd, senior director, digital design at SuVolta. “The results speak for themselves – power-performance optimized CPU cores, with results that hold across process corners and temperature, plus, SRAMs with 150 mV lower minimum operating voltage, 50 percent less leakage power at matched SRAM read current, and more than 5x less leakage power in retention mode.”

“Reducing power consumption and enhancing performance are key to providing next-generation capabilities for a variety of advanced digital products,” said Bruce McWilliams, president and CEO at SuVolta. “By validating the speed-power advantages of the DDC technology in a SoC that includes ARM processors, we’ve reached another significant milestone in demonstrating the value of our technology in a system.”
