Development Efficiency and Measurement


Seeing and improving the efficiency of Software Development teams is a problem for every technical team manager. There are two important points here: Awareness: How well is the team doing? Improvement: How does the team get better? You Can’t Improve Without Measuring. Before attempting to change something, determining exactly where it is located is the most important step.

Efficient Heterogeneous Parallel Programming Using OpenMP


In some cases, offloading computations to an accelerator like a GPU means that the host CPU sits idle until the offloaded computations are finished. However, using the CPU and GPU resources simultaneously can improve the performance of an application.

Expanding Our Horizons - Efficiently

Edge Perspectives

In our Big Shift world, we confront the imperative of institutional innovation – shifting from institutional models built on scalable efficiency to institutional models built on scalable learning. I’ve written and spoken about this a lot over the years and one of the most common pushbacks I get is – “so, are you against efficiency?” Let me lead with the answer – no, I’m not against efficiency. First, we need to broaden our horizons to look beyond efficiency.

Fast, Efficient, and Effective Cross Browser Testing


What do you think about cross-browser testing ? Developers likely develop on only one browser – and maybe only one operating system. How does an app maker ensure that defects on other browsers will not affect their user base? In theory, cross-browser testing can help companies catch product defects before products get released to customers. But the legacy approach – setting up a bunch of parallel devices and running tests across each – incurs significant engineering skill and resource cost.

2 Ways to Split PST Files Easily and Efficiently?


No one recommends large PST files; oversized PSTs are always prone to corruption. The upper size limit for ANSI PST is 2 GB, for Unicode PST in Outlook 2007 is 20 GB, and while in Outlook 2010/2013/2016/2019 is 50 GB. Oversized PSTs degrades the performance, and the biggest threat is they are more likely to get corrupted. To get rid of these drawbacks, splitting the PST file is the best solution.
