The app is of refreshing quality and contains vast content compared to what is currently available on the app store. Users have access to over 2,800 problems aligned to the Common Core Standards. The virtual manipulatives and interactive graphs inside of the activities are touch optimized to enhance the student learning experience. Teacher tools allow access to check student results and assign activities directly from the app.

The BuzzMath app also contains all of the features that are currently available through the online program, BuzzMath.com. On demand examples, instant feedback and audio readings assist students as they work towards mastery. Detailed reporting tools and single-click activity assignment are available to support teachers as they monitor the progress of their students and provide targeted and individualized instruction.

"BuzzMath has been a huge motivator for my intervention students AND my advanced students. The app is visually appealing and easy to use!", states Derek Pipkorn, 8th Grade Math Teacher from Milwaukee. "The confidence level of my students has skyrocketed, as they continue to complete assignments at or above their level."

"We take every opportunity to observe students actively working in their classrooms to determJean-ine what we can do to enhance their learning experience. If we improve their learning experience they become more engaged. If they are engaged, they spend more time on task resulting in measurable progress" says Carl Malartre, President of Scolab.

Students and teachers can now download the app from the Apple App Store for free. Accounts can be upgraded to Premium for $5 per student. Premium features are now available for educators at no cost until July 1st, 2013.

Scolab is a team of programmers, designers, educators and students, working closely together to build the future of education.

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
