ArbiterSports and SchoolDude Announce Strategic Alliance

Companies join forces to integrate the process of scheduling games, facilities and transportation into one seamless experience

SANDY, Utah and CARY, N.C., Dec.14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ArbiterSports and SchoolDude.com today announced a premier strategic alliance to integrate the ArbiterGame scheduling solution and the SchoolDude facilities (FSDirect) and transportation (TripDirect) solutions into one seamless user experience.  ArbiterSports is the established leader in game management solutions and is part of the NCAA Spectrum.  SchoolDude is the market leader in education enterprise asset management solutions for small to large institutions.

 "Athletic Departments have to deal with a lot of chaos in the normal process of scheduling athletic events," said Claire Roberts, CEO of ArbiterSports. "This development alliance will alleviate much of that chaos and prevent minor game scheduling details from turning into mountainous problems."

Research shows that 60% of schools experience wasted time due to double data entry and double booking of facility and transportation resources for school events. With staff and budgets continuing to shrink, schools cannot afford these communication and coordination problems when scheduling events.

With the integration, Athletic Departments will be able to use ArbiterGame to schedule an athletic event, and through SchoolDude, schedule facilities, transportation and other service requests, without worrying about how the two systems communicate with each other. The integration will allow schools to:

  • Eliminate double data entry and double booking
  • Easily share event calendars, resources and assets across departments
  • Improve communication and event coordination across the district
  • Efficiently manage facility requests and event schedules online
  • Easily schedule vehicles and driver assignments online

 

"We want to integrate the two worlds so that Athletic Directors and their staff don't have to worry about doing things differently or relearning a new system," said Kent Hudson, CEO and Co‐Founder of SchoolDude. "By tying our two systems together, we are able to eliminate a large portion of the redundant effort that is currently taking place and make the overall process more efficient."

The companies anticipate that this integration will be completed by the spring of 2013 and move into beta testing through the end of the year before being broadly available.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
