Applying emerging technologies for practical business use

How serverless computing serves the enterprise

Savvy businesses crave rapid iterative development, reduced IT costs, and strategic use of IT staff for creating differentiated services, not for provisioning and managing back-end compute resources. The answer? Serverless computing. Serverless computing, an emerging style of application development, eliminates the complexity of dealing with servers at all levels of the technology stack. It provides […]

Using machine vision to fight crime: Real-time license plate detection and notification

Cameras have been reading vehicle license plates for things like issuing speeding tickets, deducting tolls and conducting border surveillance. What if we could use cameras to read license plates to identify criminal suspects and notify the nearest police in real time? This is what we set out to do at DXC Labs using machine vision. […]

How 3D printing can speed procurement: A closer look at our proof-of-concept

Following my previous post about speeding procurement with 3D printing, I am sharing details about our proof-of-concept to do just that. We have designed an easy-to-use 3D printing plug-in for enterprise procurement (i.e., ERP) systems that is loaded with features. Our proof-of-concept has four parts: digital warehouse — stores all the digital design models (files), with […]

How 3D printing can speed procurement

We live in an ever-faster world of shrinking time-to-market, same-day deliveries and instant gratification. It’s time our manufacturing systems caught up. Today’s ERP systems support traditional manufacturing and procurement workflows, which take days if not weeks to get products to you. What if a worker could order a product and 3D-print it on the spot? […]

DXC Labs: Using data stories to accelerate machine learning solutions

DXC Labs has been leading the R&D for our industrialized AI offering by rapidly developing prototypes of machine learning solutions for various “data stories.” These prototypes (or minimum viable products) can be developed quickly to show customers actionable insights and engage them in deeper discussions. The prototypes, which we also call accelerators, lay the groundwork […]

The Sony Hack and What It Means to You and Me

Over the Christmas and New Year holidays I attended a few parties and I was asked by a few people what I thought of the “Sony Hack.”  This was refreshing, not only because I am usually asked to fix their computers, but also because it signaled to me that this may be a “tipping point” […]
