Extreme Development Efficiency

Improving the energy efficiency of your home is a smart investment. NYSERDA offers a range of residential programs designed to help New York Stateresidents identify areas where their homes are driving up energy costs and can provide assistance in completing energy efficiency improvements for ahealthier, more comfortable home.

Extreme Development Efficiency

It starts with a home energy assessment, conducted by trained and experienced contractors, which gives you a top-to-bottom look at where your home is wasting energy. You receive a list of recommended improvements that can include everything from addedinsulation and energy-efficient lighting to a high-efficiency heating system and ENERGY STAR certified appliances.

NYSERDA offers objective information and analysis, innovative programs, technical expertise, and support to help New Yorkers increase energy efficiency, save money, use renewable energy, and reduce reliance on fossil fuels. A public benefit corporation, NYSERDA has been advancing energy solutions and working to protect the environment since 1975.

The World Bank Group provides knowledge, advice, and financial resources in low- and middle-income countries to transform food systems to reduce poverty and achieve green, resilient, and inclusive development.

In Burkina Faso, from 2000-2018, the Bank supported the Programme National de Gestion des Terroirs which decentralized rural development and built local capacity to deliver basic services. The program also invested in water and soil conservation, agroforestry, and energy-saving stoves and other environmental technologies, helping to protect more than 200,000 hectares.

In Ethiopia, since 2015 2.3 million farmers have directly benefited from interventions aimed at improving delivery of agricultural support services, agricultural research, small-scale irrigation, and market infrastructure development. Community projects have been financed for 4,800 Common Interest Groups, benefiting 82,715 subsistence farmers and youth.

Under the West African Agricultural Productivity Program, the Bank supported a research and development effort that promoted technology generation, dissemination, and support to local farming systems in 13 ECOWAS countries. The project reached more than 2.7 million beneficiaries, 41% of whom were women. It also generated 112 technologies that reached over 1,850,000 hectares. An impact study found that average annual incomes of beneficiary farmers in Ghana increased by US$307.

The World Bank works with a range of partners to achieve ambitious development goals: transforming food systems, boosting food security and empowering smallholder farmers, to realize zero hunger and poverty by 2030.

Today, the Biden-Harris Administration is announcing a National Initiative to Advance Building Codes that will help state, local, Tribal, and territorial governments adopt the latest, current building codes and standards, enabling communities to be more resilient to hurricanes, flooding, wildfires, and other extreme weather events that are intensifying due to climate change.

To announce the National Initiative to Advance Building Codes, FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell and Deputy National Climate Advisor Ali Zaidi are in Miami, Florida today meeting with experts in climate resilience and building safety and efficiency.

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is committed to achieving a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and the Pacific, while sustaining its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty. It assists its members and partners by providing loans, technical assistance, grants, and equity investments to promote social and economic development.

Exadata Cloud Infrastructure X9M offers up to 8,064 database server vCPUs, 2.5 times more than X8M, and up to 3.1 PB of uncompressed database capacity, a 28 percent increase. Together with 80 percent faster internal networks, and twice the bandwidth to application server clients, customers can run OLTP workloads with extremely low sub-19 microsecond SQL IO latency and up to 87 percent more IOPS. Exadata Cloud Infrastructure X9M on OCI also accelerates analytics workloads in the cloud with 80 percent faster scan rates of up to 2.88 TB/s.

Organizations and developers deploying Autonomous Database on OCI can now increase performance and reduce costs by using more database and storage resources than previously possible on the X8M system. Autonomous Database customers have the flexibility to deploy the full range of Exadata Cloud Infrastructure X9M configurations in dedicated Autonomous Database environments. This enables customers to use additional vCPUs to execute more OLTP queries concurrently and more storage servers to parallelize analytics workloads with up to 38 times more scan throughput than possible with X8M. As a result, customers will be able to run database workloads faster, consolidate more of them on less infrastructure, and reduce costs. Additionally, Autonomous Database drives further cost reductions with less administration, consumption-based auto-scaling, and consolidation of up to five databases in one vCPU for lighter workloads such as development, microservices, and small databases.

Agile is a type of software development methodology that anticipates the need for flexibility and applies a level of pragmatism to the delivery of the finished product. Agile software development requires a cultural shift in many companies because it focuses on the clean delivery of individual pieces or parts of the software and not on the entire application.

Benefits of Agile include its ability to help teams in an evolving landscape while maintaining a focus on the efficient delivery of business value. The collaborative culture facilitated by Agile also improves efficiency throughout the organization as teams work together and understand their specific roles in the process. Finally, companies using Agile software development can feel confident that they are releasing a high-quality product because testing is performed throughout development. This provides the opportunity to make changes as needed and alert teams to any potential issues.

In 2001, 17 software development professionals gathered to discuss concepts around the idea of lightweight software development and ended up creating the Agile Manifesto. The Manifesto outlines the four core values of Agile, and although there has been debate about whether the Manifesto has outlived its usefulness, it remains at the core of the Agile movement.

Individual interactions are more important than processes and tools. People drive the development process and respond to business needs. They are the most important part of development and should be valued above processes and tools. If the processes or tools drive development, then the team will be less likely to respond and adapt to change and, therefore, less likely to meet customer needs.

A focus on working software rather than thorough documentation. Before Agile, a large amount of time was spent documenting the product throughout development for delivery. The list of documented requirements was lengthy and would cause long delays in the development process. While Agile does not eliminate the use of documentation, it streamlines it in a way that provides the developer with only the information that is needed to do the work -- such as user stories. The Agile Manifesto continues to place value on the process of documentation, but it places higher value on working software.

Collaboration instead of contract negotiations. Agile focuses on collaboration between the customer and project manager, rather than negotiations between the two, to work out the details of delivery. Collaborating with the customer means that they are included throughout the entire development process, not just at the beginning and end, thus making it easier for teams to meet the needs of their customers. For example, in Agile, the customer can be included at different intervals for demos of the product. However, the customer could also be present and interact with the teams daily, attend all meetings and ensure the product meets their desires.

A focus on responding to change. Traditional software development used to avoid change because it was considered an undesired expense. Agile eliminates this idea. The short iterations in the Agile cycle allow changes to easily be made, helping the team modify the process to best fit their needs rather than the other way around. Overall, Agile software development believes change is always a way to improve the project and provide additional value.

The third step, iteration/construction, is when teams start creating working software based on requirements and continuous feedback. The Agile software development cycle relies on iterations -- or single development cycles -- that build upon each other and lead into the next step of the overall development process until the project is completed. Each iteration typically lasts between two to four weeks, with a set completion date. The goal is to have a working product to launch at the end of each iteration.

After the release, the fifth step, production, focuses on the ongoing support necessary to maintain the software. The development teams must keep the software running smoothly while also teaching users exactly how to use it. The production phase continues until the support has ended or the product is planned for retirement.

The goal of every Agile methodology is to embrace and adapt to change while delivering working software as efficiently as possible. However, each method varies in the way it defines the steps of software development. The most widely used Agile methods include the following:

Lean software development is another iterative method that places a focus on using effective value stream mapping to ensure the team delivers value to the customer. It is flexible and evolving; it does not have rigid guidelines or rules. The Lean method uses the following primary principles: 350c69d7ab
