Palisade reports 241% growth in MENA region

Risk analysis specialist sees sales revenues jump in Middle East and North Africa

Risk and decision analysis expert Palisade (www.palisade.com) has reported an increase in Middle East and North Africa sales revenue of 241 percent in the first half of 2009, compared to the same period the previous year.

The company has operated in the region since 2003 and now has clients in a range of industry sectors. Oil and gas companies use the software for a variety of applications ranging from reserves estimation and cost calculation through to new project evaluation and operational risk assessments, whilst universities and academic institutions employ it for MBA programmes, operations research and engineering. Other customers include construction firms and transportation companies, along with government agencies such as utilities and planning departments.

Craig Ferri, UK managing director of Palisade, comments: “Organisations make decisions every day, and each one of these has an associated level of risk.  A more strategic approach to the decision-making process is enabled with risk and decision analysis, which reduces uncertainty in the overall operations of the business.  The increase in this region has been due in part to a noticeable jump in interest shown from companies in the area and also the dedicated Palisade team we have put in place to focus on The Middle East.”

Palisade is the world's leading developer of risk and decision analysis software. Products including @RISK and the DecisionTools Suite integrate seamlessly with Microsoft Excel to provide cutting edge techniques such as Monte Carlo simulation, optimisation and neural networking tools in a familiar and intuitive environment.  The company also offers a wide variety of support to help users maximise their software investment – from customised training courses and academic symposiums to bespoke consulting and programming services.

Palisade will be at stand 116 at the Offshore Middle East show, being held at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre between 27 and 29 October 2009.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
