Lessons from the Fragile

Jul 19, 2016 | by Andrew Smith, Principal Architect | Tags: Agile

What's the opposite of fragile?

Most people would answer "robust" or "resilient." If we subject something that is fragile to stress, shock, randomness or volatility, we can expect that it will be harmed. If we do the same to something that is robust or resilient, we can expect that it will resist harm - but won't be any better off than when we started. But what if something that is subjected to stress, shock, randomness or volatility actually benefited? That would be the opposite of fragile: antifragile. This is the core theme of Nassim Nicholas Taleb's book, Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder. 


Meet Our Team: Summer Interns

Jul 14, 2016 | by Daniela Williams, Project Manager | Tags: Meet Our Team

Welcome back to the Meet Our Team Q&A series. My name is Daniela Williams, Project Manager at ISE, and I’ll be asking ISE team members questions to help give insight into what makes us tick.

Since our inception over 10 years ago, ISE has hosted an internship program that has attracted highly qualified college students from around the state. This summer was no different with our latest batch of students, Griffen Clark, Jacob Veal, and Alan Peine. Technically Griffen never left, as he interned remotely during the previous summer and school year as well. Today I chatted with the group to learn a bit more about each of them.

Have you ever wondered if there was a better way to purchase a telematics solution than what you may be currently doing today? If you’re a motor carrier, you have more important things do to than spend hours researching all the possibilities. You need something that is customized per the needs of your organization.
