Sensors are changing the way we live and how we experience the world around us as they become ubiquitous across all form factors: large screen, laptops, tablets, phones, wearables and IoT devices. This session provides an overview of the unified development story for sensors and the key investments in Windows 10. Topics include: Overview of the sensors support for Windows 10, New sensors support, New devices: Barometer, Long Range Proximity, and custom sensors, Composite sensors and activity tracking, Sensors driver architecture: Sensors Framework, driver models, DDSI surface and related WDK samples, and How to bring up your sensors on Windows: step-by step guide and tips, driver validation (HLK). Intended Audience: OEMs, ODMs, IDHs, IHVs, Peripheral Manufacturers, Driver Developers.
Northwestern Mutual has been helping achieve financial security for nearly 160 years. In order to continue to offer the same efficient service and solid security that has earned them 4.3 million customers, they knew they had to change. The IT solutions the institution depended on wasn't up to today's fast-paced demands or high-security requirements. Agile software development firm, Centare, offered to create and implement an innovative continuous delivery pipeline solution using the capabilities of Microsoft development technologies and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) processes. While the big changes that the new system makes is primarily internal in nature, Northwestern Mutual has been around long enough to know that they have a direct impact on the bottom line and the satisfaction of their customer.
You've migrated parts of your application to in-memory. But now you are not seeing a serious performance improvement, or maybe even a performance degradation! What's going on? In this session we walk you through several performance problems we have seen with customers, and show how to diagnose and resolve the issues to ultimately obtain the performance improvement you're looking for from in-memory OLTP. We address a variety of issues, including log IO bottlenecks, index tuning, and query plan problems.
