For companies doing business online, client experience is critical. In fact, industry studies have shown that if the online experience is not optimal in performance and usability, the outcome is dissatisfied clients.
As a Principal Architect for RegEd, a provider of professional licensing and compliance management solutions, I understand this all too well. As a company, we hold a substantial market share among the top 1,000 financial services firms, and we didn’t get there without delivering an outstanding client experience. This is where EMC enters the picture.
A mere five months ago, Lotus F1 Team and EMC embarked upon a partnership to create the IT backbone necessary to underpin the Team’s aspiration to challenge for the World Championship in 2015. Together we are completely overhauling our IT infrastructure. I am thrilled to report that the infrastructure was fully designed, tested and deployed in record time.
Working in pit-crew-like fashion with our friends at EMC, VMware and VCE we ensured that the solution being deployed not only meets our future needs, but is fully integrated with our legacy environment.
I’ve been involved in Formula 1 Racing since 2010. There’s nothing more exhilarating that the start of a Grand Prix… the revving of engines, the strategy and science behind each race, the necessity for precision, the flawless choreography of today’s modern pit stop and, of course, the sleek elegance and aerodynamics of the cars’ bodywork. Formula 1 is about precision, speed, efficiency, and leaving absolutely no room for error.
In 2014, the sport is undergoing the most disruptive rule changes in its history. New mandates include smaller engines—a move from V-8 engines to “greener” 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engines. In other words, Lotus F1 Team needs to redesign everything to be smaller and more efficient—yet equally powerful. These rules require we leverage every single bit of intelligence we have in order to identify and uncover new opportunities for design breakthroughs.
