100 Job Openings in the Windows Azure Group and What They Say About Steve Ballmer’s Latest Move

first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… alex williams Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo…center_img Tags:#Analysis#enterprise#news#NYT 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Steve Ballmer is not shy about switching out management of the Windows Azure group. First we saw Ray Ozzie leave Microsoft. He left after Windows Azure became part of Bob Muglia’s responsibilities. Now Muglia is no longer the executive Ballmer wants to run the Server & Tools Business (STB), the division that oversees Windows Azure. In turn, Muglia will also be leaving Microsoft after the transition to new leadership.Ballmer’s new choice to lead STB depends on who has the experience to manage what the group sees as its main goals for the year ahead and beyond. It’s a critical decision. Ballmer has made the point often that the cloud represent Microsoft’s future.A quick look at the jobs Microsoft has open in the STB group gives insight into what that future may look like. STB is arguably the fastest growing part of the company. In the past week alone, there have been about 100 new job listings for positions in the division. Muglia’s position is not listed there but you can see what kind of roles are being developed and the skill sets required to do the work. Matching those job descriptions to the direction of the group and you can start to see some patterns.In particular, you see the leadership established by Muglia and Ozzie. Ozzie set the vision for Windows Azure and in many respect, Muglia served as its general, executing on the strategy.Under their successful leadership, Azure has moved from a cloud platform to one that seeks to extend into the all devices, embedded in every aspect of our lives. It’s an approach that means Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 devices will have a future tied to the cloud. Mobile proliferation, smart operating systems and distributed networks are trends that will last at least a decade. You can see the influence of these movements in multiple ways on the Windows Azure group.Most of the positions we see on the Microsoft job search site are in software engineering. The team is also in need for people to do Web development, program management, consulting, operations, IT, marketing, research and sales. There are a few, though, that tell a larger story about Windows Azure future direction.For example, a marketing management position gives deeper insights into how these trends play into the Azure strategy and what the new leader will need to do in order to succeed. The description is testament to the influence the Windows Azure leadership has had on the group’s direction. The description refers to a post by Ray Ozzie about the paradigm of continuous services and connected devices. If you will recall, we wrote last week about a Flickr app on Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 that synchronizes, in particular for a smartphone or tablet device. We are told this will be an ongoing story for Microsoft in the year ahead.Here’s the lead to a description for the marketing manager position:Do you want to join one of the fastest growing and energized groups at Microsoft? Are you interested in Microsoft’s strategy for expanding Windows and the Cloud to Specialized Devices? These Specialized Devices range from in-car infotainment systems, Digital Signage, Enterprise Handheld, Point of Service, Thin Clients, Industrial Controllers, Server Appliances, Connected TV and more. The Windows Embedded Business is impacting a number of industry and vertical segments including Automotive, Retail, Medical, Industrial Automation, Energy, Safety and Surveillance, and Consumer Electronics. The devices and scenarios our product and service enable are at the forefront Ray Ozzie’s “Continuous services / Connected Devices” paradigm (see http://ozzie.net/docs/dawn-of-a-new-day for more).From this we see a strategy that is moving off the PC and to the device. It plays into the need to develop services for the automobile, industrial equipment, consumer electronics and other devices.R “Ray” Wang, principal analyst and CEO of the Constellation Group, said that Muglia has been instrumental in building out the Azure group. His absence will be greatly missed.“Bob was instrumental in Microsoft building out its cloud strategy,” Wang said in an interview today. “A lot of the stuff he was doing on Azure was foundational to Microsoft’s future.”From our perspective, this seems more like a cultural shift. The world of connected devices and synchronized continuous services may be better lead by someone who has had a deeper role in developing a new generation of technologies more suited to a distributed world than the one where the PC was the once and only king.last_img read more

Designing a Good Ventilation System

first_imgUPDATED on June 25, 2018Most green builders include some type of mechanical ventilation system in every home they build. That’s good. Since green buildings usually have very low levels of air leakage, mechanical ventilation is usually essential.Unfortunately, several research studies have shown that a high number of mechanical ventilation systems are poorly designed or installed. Among the common problems:It’s disheartening to learn that many green homes waste energy because of poorly designed ventilation systems that were improperly commissioned.If you’re unfamiliar with residential ventilation systems, it’s a good idea to review the ventilation information in the GreenBuildingAdvisor encyclopedia.ASHRAE’s residential ventilation standard (Standard 62.2) sets the minimum ventilation rate at 7.5 cfm per occupant plus 3 cfm for every 100 square feet of occupiable floor area.The residential ventilation requirements in the 2018 International Residential Code (IRC) differ from the requirements of the ASHRAE 62.2 standard, however. According to the 2018 IRC, the minimum ventilation rate is 7.5 cfm per occupant plus 1 cfm for every 100 square feet of occupiable floor area. (For more information on code requirements for ventilation, see “An Update on the Residential Ventilation Debate.”)Systems complying with ASHRAE 62.2 have ventilation rates that are relatively low; for example, a 2,000-square-foot house with three occupants requires 83 cfm of mechanical ventilation. That’s about as much airflow as is provided by a typical bath exhaust fan. (Of course, systems complying with the minimum requirements of the 2018 IRC have even lower ventilation rates.)Since ventilation airflows are typically quite low, ventilation ductwork needs to be impeccably sealed. If ventilation ductwork is leaky, fresh air won’t reach its intended destination.Prominent building scientists are now debating the merits of the ASHRAE 62.2 ventilation rate. Max Sherman, former chairman of the ASHRAE 62.2 committee, defends the existing ASHRAE formula.

Press Release Tapis to host exclusive launch of aircraft seating at AIX

first_imgTapis Corporation (Tapis), renowned for high-performance fabrics for seating and vertical surface applications in the aviation industry, today announced that the firm will host an “Aircraft Seating Innovation Center” at its Aircraft Interiors Expo® (AIX) booth in Hamburg, Germany.Tapis strategically collaborated with the next generation of seating suppliers to transform the airline passenger experience. Tapis materials, including seat covers that provide a luxurious, sustainable and durable alternative to leather, will be featured on the prototype seats.“We partnered with the most forward-thinking, boutique seating manufacturers to produce breakthrough designs that have the potential to vastly improve aircraft interiors, both in business and economy classes,” said Jason Estes, vice president of global sales and marketing for Tapis. “These new products create a new standard for passenger comfort while maximizing the passenger envelope.”Finished with Tapis’ materials, a critical component to achieving the highest standards of passenger comfort and FAA fire retardant standards, the seats will be on display at the full-scale fuselage mockup at the Tapis AIX booth. Seats being showcased will include the following:Butterfly’s Single Aisle Lie Flat (SALF) seat. This award-winning SALF is a high-density and direct aisle access seat. The SALF is a flexible seating solution that allows for instant transformation between premium economy to regional first class, and long-haul flatbed suites. The trim and finish features the first use of Ultrasuede as a seat cover. The advanced haptic is synonymous with comfort in both seating and sleeping modes.  The seat shell liner is upholstered in contrasting Tapisuede Flannel for a boutique luxury experience. The soft goods are dressed in contrasting Ultraleather, its exquisite handle providing a genuine luxury touch at the customer interface.Rebel Aero’s S3 seat featuring a flip-up seat-bottom cushion that allows passengers to sit and stand and acts as a booster for child seats, including a three-point harness for enhanced safety.  The seat has a cradle recline that does not impinge on rear passenger space, and a patented sleep headrest.  The seat is finished with laminated dress covers in a neutral Ultraleather Promessa Grey with a contrasting Ultratech material in the headrest.  Ultratech has the robustness of leather but the haptic and comfort of fabric, creating a pillow like effect for maximum sleepability.Molon Labe’s side-slip seat, one of the most patented seats on the market, with a wider middle seat and staggered armrest.

Press Release Campaign draws attention to safety impact of unruly pax

first_imgEvery three hours the safety of a flight within the EU is threatened by passengers demonstrating unruly or disruptive behaviour. At least 70% of these incidents involve some form of aggression. At least once a month the situation escalates to such a degree forcing the plane to perform an emergency landing. *These figures are worrying as they demonstrate an increasing trend. What is particularly disturbing is that these incidents have a direct impact on both the safety of crew and passengers. Any kind of unruly or disruptive behaviour whether related to intoxication, aggression or other factors introduces an unnecessary risk to the normal operation of a flight.To reach out to airlines and passengers, EASA has joined forces with IATA to promote a new campaign, “Not On My Flight”. The campaign draws attention to examples of unruly behaviour, and the consequences that passengers face. “We are happy to team up with IATA on tackling an issue that directly affects the safety of passengers and crew. Flying should be an enjoyable and safe experience,” said Patrick Ky, Executive Director of EASA referring to the launch of the initiative.“Unruly passengers are a small minority but their actions can have a disproportionate impact on others. Passengers and crew have a right to a safe flight free from disturbance and harassment. The rise in serious unruly passenger behaviour is a great concern to airlines. IATA members unanimously passed a resolution at our 2014 Annual General Meeting setting out our priorities for tackling unruly incidents, which included working with stakeholders to raise awareness of the importance of this issue. We are pleased to support EASA’s “not on my flight” campaign, which we hope will focus minds on what is acceptable conduct on board, and the consequences for passengers if they fail to adhere to safety regulations,” said Rafael Schvartzman, IATA’s Regional Vice President for Europe.Together we show zero tolerance against unruly behaviour.

Press Release Airbus launches Skywise Health Monitoring with Allegiant

first_imgAirbus has launched first operations of a new Skywise service – Skywise Health Monitoring (SHM) – with Allegiant Air on its A320s. Dynamically coupled with Skywise Reliability Services (SRS) and Skywise Predictive Maintenance (SPM), SHM is hosted on Skywise, gathering live diagnostic feeds from the aircraft through its *ACARS link to the airline’s information system.Using the power of the Skywise aviation data platform, SHM collates and centralises the alerts, flight-deck effects, maintenance messages etc., prioritizes them, correlates any faults with the relevant troubleshooting procedures, highlights operational impacts, provides the maintenance history of the system (from the logbook and **MIS information collected through Skywise Core and stored in the data lake), allowing effective tracking of the alerts.When fully deployed, and following the in-service feedback from Allegiant Air and other ‘early adopters’, SHM will support airlines’ Maintenance Control Centers, Line Maintenance and Engineering departments in identifying, prioritizing, analyzing and handling in-service events, enabling quicker decision-making and preparation of the optimal solution to ensure aircraft on-time dispatch and minimizing AOG risks.Overall, SHM saves airlines time and decreases the cost of unscheduled maintenance. Natively interfaced with SPM and SRS to provide an integrated user-experience, and also ready to harness the new on-board Flight Operations and Maintenance Exchanger (“FOMAX”) data router which can capture over 20,000 real-time aircraft parameters, SHM enables end-to-end unscheduled event management/fixes for example by anticipating tools and parts’ availability closest to the aircraft. More early adopters will join in the months to come to pilot SHM for other Airbus aircraft, including A330, A350 and A380.*ACARS = Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System **MIS = Maintenance Information SystemAbout AirbusAirbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2018 it generated revenues of € 64 billion and employed a workforce of around 134,000. Airbus offers the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners.
