Fedora for Science (and the KDE desktop)

Being an amateur Theoretical Physcist is alot of work, I searched just about everywhere for a scientific version of Linux, while I had previous, but short uses of Ubuntu and Mint proved them, to me, unsatisfying. So after more digging around I decided to look at Fedora, it seemed great, but I still needed the scientific software pre-installed so I don't have to go do more digging. After a small bit of reading I saw the spins, sounded intresting, but I needed more, then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw the LABS page, it had everything from Art, to Cybersecurity, with all the applications pre-installed, I just had to go for it. You know what, it was completely worth it, it had a comprehensive library of everything, and after installing Libre Office, I was ready to go. It is safe to say that this got me HOOKED on linux, I adore having it dual booting on my Windows 7, so I can have a personal and scientific system. It runs on the modern and functional KDE desktop. One of the biggest pluses I found was that it ran on my 1920x1080 moniter right out of the box, without even running in render mode, or requiring drivers.

So what are the cons? For me, with KDE, is the massive amount of time you spend in the console, from installing packages, to fixing packages, to wanting to smash my computer becuase virtual box would not work no matter how many times I ran the commands and install repositories. But, thats about it, it was mostly stress free. After a while, you get used to it. So for me, it's a 9.999 out of 10, too much console and technicality if it's your first distro.

Save Time and Effort with these Excellent Batch Image Processors

Batch image processors are often underrated and don't get the attention they deserve. But this type of software is worth getting familiar with. With batch image processing, a user can select a size or file type, and then convert all the selected images. This way, hundreds or thousands of images can be processed with just a few clicks. Unfortunately, there are not that many tools that do batch conversion really well. But these four tools save loads of time and effort.

If you deal with writing content on the web, you are likely to need to process images, and face the pain of converting many images to different sizes and formats. The best batch image processors do lots more than resize and convert images. They also offer some advanced functions including graphic editing.

System Integration Market - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2015 - 2021

System integration (SI) enables to build computing systems for end users by combining hardware and software products from several vendors. By implementing systems integration, a company can acquire cheaper, pre-configured components of software. These small components of software help company to achieve key business goals. Otherwise the companies have to purchase customized, more expensive software; this may also require manufacturing of unique products or original programming. Creation of these information systems include designing and building a new customized applications or architecture, after building software components, they are integrated with the existing or new software and hardware packages and communication infrastructure. There are some system integrators such as SAP providing more specialized and specific applications.

High investments in IT in last decade have created a huge demand for the system integration market. As the information technology developed the adoption and implementation of information technology system were high, this generated the distributed information system all over the industries and organization generating the demand for integration of the distributed systems. Thus high investment in distributed information technology system is the main driver for the system integration market. With this there are many emerging technologies supporting system integration market such as bid data and cloud. Cloud implementation and big data solutions implementation is the new trend in the information technology systems market. Thus companies are adopting the integration of their data with adoption of these technologies such as big data and cloud providing added advantages to the companies implementing it. Development in automation sector is driving system integration market, as adoption of system integration technologies is high in automation sector. 

High implementation cost and time required for the effective implementation of system integration is resulting into less adoption of system integration technologies. With this there are very less number of international standard protocols for the communication between two or more information technology sub-systems resulting into complexities for the system integrators. If the industry previously is using legacy systems then it results into increased complexities for system integration. For system integration the network infrastructure must be standard, thus lack of network infrastructure is resulting into deferred demand for the system integration market.

System integration market is segmented on the basis of system integration service type, end-use industry and geography. On the basis of type the system integration market is broadly segmented into three major types namely infrastructure system integration services, application system integration services and business consulting services. Infrastructure system integration services are segmented into network management, data center management, building management, security and surveillance management, cloud based integration management and enterprise management. Application system integration services are segmented into data integration, unified communication, integrated social software, application integration and others. Further business consulting services are segmented into business process integration, business transformation and application lifecycle management.

System integration market is segmented on the basis of end-user industry into banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), defense, healthcare, telecommunication and IT, oil gas and energy, transportation, retail and others (pharmaceuticals, public sector, education and automotive). And on the basis of geography system integration market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and rest of the world (RoW).

Request Full TOC:

Some of the major players in system integration market are Accenture Plc., BAE Systems Plc., Capgemini S.A., Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC), Fujitsu Limited, General Dynamics Corporation, Harris Corporation, IBM Corporation, Infosys Technologies, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Raytheon Company, Leidos Corporation, Tata Consultancy Service Limited and Wipro Limited.
