Aaron Pena, NI ELP engineer, applications engineering, shows how data from wind turbines can be served up in a cloud (on the web) for access and analysis anywhere that has a web connection.
In another cloud-based initiative, NI is expecting to save time and computing resources by offering code compilation with software as a service (SaaS), so no engineer has to be idle while code is compiling on an in-house computer.
Faster iterations and more of them translate into more bullet-proof designs, according to National Instruments at NIWeek 2010.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
