About Advisor Partners
Advisor Partners, LLC was founded in 2001 as an investment advisory firm providing a broad range of sophisticated investment solutions to a select group of independent advisors and financial institutions. Advisor Partners is a wholly owned subsidiary of Advisor Software (ASI), which acquired Advisor Partners in 2009.

The firm's original specialty was in constructing and managing highly customized, tax-managed, core equity portfolios for the high net worth clients of the professional investment advisor. Comprised of individual securities, each equity portfolio seeks to replicate the performance of an assigned index and is closely tailored to the investor's specific financial circumstances and preferences.

The firm's product line has expanded since its founding. Advisor Partners creates socially responsible portfolios for clients who want portfolios that are aligned with their personal beliefs. The firm also manages thematic beta strategies targeting specific style, capitalization or quality objectives. The Managed Asset Allocation Program (MAAP) utilizes ETFs and mutual funds to create globally diversified portfolios for advisors who want a turnkey asset management solution.

Our newest product, the High Quality Dividend Yield (HQDY) strategy, draws upon the capabilities of AP in active and passive management, creating diversified dividend-oriented portfolios comprised of high quality U.S. companies.

Now that the world has connected “things,” we need to build these devices as truly intelligent in order to create instantaneous and precise results. This means you have to do as much of the processing at the point of entry as you can: at the edge. The killer use cases for IoT are becoming manifest through AI engines on edge devices. An autonomous car has this dual edge/cloud analytics model, producing precise, real-time results. In his session at @ThingsExpo, John Crupi, Vice President and Eng...
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
