first_imgIn an enterprise environment, information technology never stands still. It is always evolving. As next-generation systems and applications, such as SAP HANA in-memory database and appropriate business application SAP S/4HANA, become available, your enterprise will at some point need to transition to the new platforms to achieve higher-levels of IT efficiency and performance. This is really about capitalizing on new technology to keep the business competitive.But what happens to your business-critical data when you migrate your SAP and non-SAP applications and data to new systems? How do you retire these legacy applications while maintaining access to the historical data in those systems and complying with your corporate data retention standards? And how do you avoid the substantial costs involved in maintaining legacy applications — including the cost of maintenance, support personnel and licenses — once you have moved the master data and open transactions to newer applications?These questions are explored and answered in a new “Legacy Application Retirement Guide” put together by subject matter experts from Dell EMC and Auritas, a firm that has developed a very successful approach to retiring legacy systems.This paper explains how you can free up resources being used to maintain a legacy application by retaining historical data in a lower-cost alternate system or storage repository. The big picture: Data from the legacy application is extracted, transformed as required and then loaded into a low-cost system or repository, which includes capabilities for reporting on the data extracted from the source system.Regardless of the specific technologies you choose, your legacy system retirement solution should include these must-have features:Scalable architectureCost-effective architectureThe ability to extract and store data from a variety of systemsEnterprise-level securityEase of use and flexible reportingData governance and retention complianceSo how do you get started? The paper offers an overview of a customizable, step-by-step process for accelerating legacy application retirement, along with a look at infrastructure deployment options using Dell EMC Ready Solutions for SAP, and the Dell EMC Isilon platform for dedicated network attached storage for large datasets. Following this structured approach, you can rapidly decommission your legacy applications and save on the costs of licenses and maintenance.Ready for a deeper dive?

The government still really needs [bureaucratic] flexibility and streamlined procedures,” he said during a meeting with the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) that was livestreamed on the Presidential Secretariat’s official YouTube page on Tuesday.

first_img Both clubs had admitted a charge of failing to ensure players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion. The incident occurred in the 80th minute of the match at the Liberty Stadium on December 9. There was a fracas involving Hull’s Tom Huddlestone and Yannick Sagbo and Swansea’s Ashley Williams, with Chico Flores then flinging himself to the ground feigning that Sagbo had elbowed him. The game ended in a 1-1 draw after Danny Graham’s opener against his former club was cancelled out by Flores in the 60th minute. Sagbo and Williams were both booked after the incident, while Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey was also shown a yellow card in the aftermath. It was the first Premier League match between the two sides. The Football Association has fined Swansea and Hull £20,000 each following the mass confrontation which marred their Barclays Premier League clash earlier this month.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_img Published on September 29, 2015 at 10:48 pm Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus Facebook Twitter Google+ HAMILTON, N.Y. — Zeroes ticked across the scoreboard at Beyer-Small ’76 Field and only one set of LED lights lay dormant — the shots under Colgate’s side of the board.Syracuse goalkeeper Austin Aviza exited the penalty area and immediately sought out defender Kamal Miller standing near midfield to shake his hand and give him a hug. Aviza made his way to defenders Louis Cross and Miles Robinson amid the pouring rain to do the same.“I just throw them a lot of credit,” Aviza said. “They’ve been excellent these past few games so it just makes my life 10 times easier.”For the second game in a row, the back line of Cross, Robinson and Miller kept SU’s opponent from registering a shot on goal. Colgate managed eight shots, but the only ball Aviza had to make a play on was a cross that he punched away late in the game. The clean sheet helped the Orange (6-2-1, 1-1-1 Atlantic Coast) to a 2-0 win over the Raiders (4-3-1, 1-0 Patriot) on Tuesday night.“They put us under some pressure,” head coach Ian McIntyre said. “They put a lot of balls in the box. They’ve got some size in the back that came forward on restarts and I thought defensively Louis, Miles, Kamal — and Juuso (Pasanen) in front — played very well.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textColgate tried to push the ball toward the middle from the start of the game, but the Orange was able to thwart each attempt coming in the run of play.Miller easily headed away a chipped through ball in a one-on-one opportunity on the Raiders’ first offensive possession. Pasanen, a midfielder, missed an oncoming Colgate attacker with a jab of his leg, leaving CU midfielder Jared Stroud open near the back of the penalty area. But Robinson bodied the forward enough to force the ball out of bounds past the goal line as Stroud waved his hands up and down in the air.The Raiders most dangerous chances came on corners and free kicks, but SU defenders were always there to knock the ball away. Each of CU’s seven corners and at least four free kicks were launched into the box.Even one of the throw-ins that Colgate managed in SU’s defensive half was heaved into the box, only to be knocked away.“We just did a good job of defending the first ball, the second ball and protecting our goalkeeper,” Miller said. By Aviza’s estimation, his defenders won every ball in the air.Aviza has grown more vocal as the season has carried on, he and his teammates said, which involves positioning the defenders in front of him on restarts. He cupped his hands on each set piece to communicate with his defense and even tugged at some of their jerseys to get them in the right spot.When the Orange defense knocked away two consecutive Colgate corner attempts with less than four minutes left, Aviza said nothing, however, he just clapped.Colgate’s last attempt came on a free kick from 45 yards out to the right of the net with just a few minutes left in the game. The ball sailed high in the air, curving left, but Aviza rose through a crowd to punch the ball away.Even in SU’s first shutout of the year against Bucknell on Aug. 30, Aviza had to make eight saves. But in the last two games — the only other shutouts — he’s touched the ball most on goal kicks and never to stop a shot on net.“We’re really stepping up and becoming more cohesive as a defensive unit,” Miller said.  “It’s clearly showing with the stats that we’ve achieved in the last two games and I think it’s only going to keep getting better.” Commentslast_img read more
