Candy manufacturer moves from technology chaos to data-driven operations thanks to integrated appliance

Two years ago, 50-year-old confectionary manufacturer Warrell Creations was in a legacy mess. Outdated equipment and cobbled-together processes had created an information technology nightmare, with employees unable to complete even the simplest tasks.

“When I first got here our users were complaining about not being able to print a Word document. I mean, not being able to print a document? That’s fundamental stuff,” said Clifton Dorsey (pictured), vice president of The Warrell Corp.

Dorsey spoke with Lisa Martin, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, for a digital CUBE Conversation about how Dell Technology Inc.’s integrative approach to data protection helped Warrell leave behind the dark ages of tech and take a data-driven approach to candy manufacturing.

The Buffalo Sabres’ Sports Science Push Offers A Glimpse Of The NHL’s Data-Driven Future

For all of the money the Buffalo Sabres spent during the 2015 offseason, including the signing of star centerman Ryan O’Reilly to a $52.5 million deal, perhaps the most important acquisitions came off the ice.

The Sabres decided to invest in a new sports science initiative and tapped Dr. Dean Higham to lead it, not an obvious choice considering he didn’t even have a hockey background.

What Higham did have was a Ph.D. in applied science and more than half a decade’s experience at the Australian Institute of Sport, where he worked with the Australian national rugby sevens team.

Buffalo was looking

Simio Collaborates With Handre Dreyer to Host Webinar on Rapid Block Cave Simulation Using Data-Driven Modeling Technology

PITTSBURGH, Nov. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Handre Dreyer, Manager of Scheduling and Warehouse Solutions at Simulation Engineering Technologies, will discuss and present a paper on the application of a new simulation modeling technology to create a simulation model of a complex underground mining operation. The webinar will focus on how the innovative simulation modeling technology was used to rapidly develop an underground block cave operation. The advantages, which include assisting the mine operator to perform accurate product planning and complex scenario analysis, will be discussed.

The webinar will showcase visual models of the complex mine operations and highlight how rapidly the new simulation technology was applied to develop models of the complex mine with multiple caves. Handre will discuss the data-driven modeling process, the rapid modeling technique used, and showcase the level of detail achieved using the new simulation technology.

Participants will learn about the data-driven approach to creating
