The POWER8 servers, the product of a $2.4 billion, three-year investment, are part of the company's decade-long shift to higher-value hardware technology. IBM said the machines are 50 times faster than the low-end x86-based servers it sold to Chinese PC maker Lenovo Group Ltd in January. The technology services provider said on Wednesday it hopes the servers, designed for large-scale computing, will appeal to clients looking to manage new types of social and mobile computing and mass amounts of data.

SAP HANA popular analytics platform new insights

German software vendor SAP AG is betting heavily on a new generation of analytic computing it calls HANA to maintain its position as the world's largest business-application vendor.HANA, which is already installed at more than 200 customer locations, processes data in real time by storing it in live memory rather than in a separate data warehouse, enabling customers to make business decisions faster.

Liquor distributor Charmer Sunbelt Group finished installing a HANA system in July, and it says it has helped managers react to logistical problems as they occur. Getting shipments out is essential for Charmer because customers can refuse them if they are late. According to Chief Information Officer Paul Fipps, HANA helps generate a warehouse progress report in between 20 and 40 seconds. Before, he says, a report took three days "and two or three people to put it together." Competitors are IBM, Oracle, Microsoft and SAS. Read more from SAP.

A recent report by Statistics Canada revealed that two-thirds of those who graduated with a PhD in engineering from a Canadian University in 2005 spoke neither English nor French as mother tongue.
