How can IT achieve the flexibility and agility it needs to offer multiple types of applications in multiple locations? Just as enterprises take advantage of applications hosted in multiple locations (i.e., public clouds, private clouds, or SaaS applications), they take advantage of different networks for different reasons (i.e. performance, backup, remote access). These could be MPLS links, ATM links, traditional Internet connections, or VPN lines. Enterprises, in effect, are already building hybrid networks, and those combined with the elements of hybrid clouds create the hybrid enterprise.

Safety certification for avionics hardware and software is an expensive, complicated process, but absolutely necessary to ensure safe skies for commercial aircraft passengers and military jets flying in the national airspace. Now unmanned aircraft flight critical electronics will also have to meet these same safety requirements as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) starts to open up the national airspace to unmanned aerial systems (UASs). While the rules are still being drawn up, embedded software and hardware designers are already looking at ways for UAS platform integrators to solve certification challenges and manage the process of compliance with safety certification standards such as DO-178B & C. This webcast of industry experts will discuss how to enable safety certification of UAS platforms through efficient and cost-effective solutions.
