Hologram Object Projection – Blend of AR and VR

Hologram Object Projection

As coronavirus cases have surged, so have the number of companies asking their employees to work from home, and technologies like Hologram Object Projection will prove as milestones in facilitating work from home by projecting users in a 3D space.

The Hologram is a Three Dimensional projection of an object that exists freely in space and is visible to everyone without the need for 3D glasses. Based on Mixed Reality, the concept is a combination of elements of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.

Idea: Hologram Object Projection is a combination of AR and VR where AR creates the illusion that virtual objects are placed in the real world, and VR implies complete immersion experience in a virtual environment, i.e., creating a 3D simulated environment by shutting out the physical environment. It enables interaction of the real world with digital objects. It is based on realistic rendering, i.e., virtual objects are placed … Read More

Automation strategies during the times of COVID-19

Automation strategies during the times of COVID-19

Wondering what business looks like post-COVID? Indeed, each one of us, with absolutely no clue when things will return to their normal and still strategizing to bring the world together as it was before the epidemic.

What curve do we want to flatten and why?

What curve do we want to flatten and why

What curve do we want to flatten and why?The answer lies in one number “TOTAL ACTIVE CASES”. This reflects what our healthcare system will deal with on any given day. The rate of spread is so fast that no country has the capacity to handle the hospitalization and ICU requirements. Hence, we want to flatten this red curve by slowing/stopping the spread. How do we do it? a) Containment – By measures such as rapid testing, contact tracing, quarantine, isolation, social distancing, lockdown, and curfew. All we are trying to do is reduce “NEW DAILY CASES” and flatten this orange curve.

b) Mitigation – By measures such as hospital capacity planning, right protective gear and equipment procurement, readiness to handle cases quickly, effective medication and eventually vaccination. All we are trying to do is rapidly increase “RECOVERED CASES” and improve the green curveAmid this craziness, the one biggest goal for … Read More

ELK- The Passionate Pursuit of Log Analysis

ELK- The Passionate Pursuit of Log Analysis

As the number of distributed systems keeps on increasing, it is tough to understand where the errors are happening. But aggregating our logs together gives a unified understanding of the overall working of our system and helps us identify the error. The idea behind ELK is also to identify the root cause of errors and take corrective measures to prevent further damage.

Overview: During SDLC (System Development Life Cycle), we often face situations where we need to find frequently occurring errors in different pages, methods having exceptions/errors, the performance of the pages/methods, availability of application and server, and many more. Various applications are feed into each other. Debugging is an issue that requires logging into each box to look at the logs for errors. With a small number of apps/boxes, debugging is not an issue, but it quickly becomes tedious as the number of apps/boxes increase!

Idea: With ELK identifying such errors … Read More

Virtual Tea Sessions: How about connecting virtually over a cup of tea and indulging in some chit-chat? Yes, our teams are meeting at tea-time as they meet in the office, the only difference is it is all happening virtually through video calls. Such sessions give them a break from work, and they enjoy hanging out with their colleagues.

How RPA can streamline Supply Chain and Logistics?

How RPA can streamline Supply Chain and Logistics?

Supply Chain and Logistics is predominantly an industry which is driven by precision and speed. The industry is mostly governed by a lot of systems and processes, which, when automated drive efficiency, scale, and faster deliveries. RPA optimizes operations and cuts costs and emerges as a replacement for a lot of non-productive, repetitive tasks. 

 Overview: 

Robotics has become a key component of Supply Chain automation and will continue to transform supply chain operations. It is said to have a drastic impact in terms of productivity, efficiency, and accuracy on the Supply Chain and Logistics industry. Among the various benefits that RPA brings to the industry, the prominent ones are real-time inventory visibility and warehouse management. 

 But, before the enterprise dives into implementing RPA, there is a certain level of preparedness and some ground-level modifications that enterprises need to make. A few of them are:
