EEMBC Tames the Wild, Wild World of Android™ Benchmarking

The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) today announced the availability of AndEBench-Pro, its advanced Android device benchmark. AndEBench-Pro provides professional-grade Android device benchmarking that allows device vendors and consumers to reliably assess the performance of their Android-based devices. As an independent and unbiased tool, AndEBench-Pro empowers users to compare devices, providing them with confidence in their purchasing decisions.

AndEBench-Pro focuses on the key metrics that reflect the subsystems and usage models of applications running on Android devices. Hardware tests in the benchmark thoroughly exercise the CPU, GPU, memory, and storage subsystems using carefully designed, tough-to-fool algorithms. The Platform test includes common tasks such as GUI rendering, XML parsing, image manipulation, data compression, and cryptography, all combined into real-world scenarios.

The AndEBench working group, led by Ronen Zohar, Principal Engineer at Intel Corporation, was joined by EEMBC members including ARM, Imagination Technologies, Intel, Marvell Semiconductor, NVIDIA, and most of the other application processor vendors.

“After more than 18 months of debating, defining, and developing, we are proud to deliver to the industry and the Android community this comprehensive and invaluable benchmark,” said Mr. Zohar. “It’s truly amazing how many decisions went into the making of the sophisticated, yet –easy-to-use AndEBench-Pro, but the resulting benchmark is a tool that users can confidently run knowing it will generate technically sound and meaningful scores.”

“Unfortunately, Android benchmarks in the market have been developed by entities that might be naïve about how to develop a structurally sound benchmark, and furthermore their motivation is unclear,” said Markus Levy, EEMBC’s President. “Given the expertise that has gone into developing AndEBench-Pro and the transparent availability of source code, EEMBC is convinced the benchmark is structurally sound and serves the industry’s needs.”

In early 2012, EEMBC released its first-generation Android benchmark, called AndEBench. This pioneering benchmark provided a useful and transparent way to measure basic CPU performance. With this more sophisticated launch, AndEBench scores are not comparable to those generated by AndEBench-Pro. Still, EEMBC encourages the continued use of AndEBench, and highlights for its communities the availability of user-submitted scores representing more than 1,000 devices.

With support for both English and Chinese languages, the invaluable AndEBench-Pro can be downloaded for free from Google Play™ and the Amazon™ Appstore for Android. Professional device reviewers should contact EEMBC directly to obtain their specific version of AndEBench-Pro that will enable them to change benchmarking parameters and gain undisclosed scoring information to aid in their device analysis. In addition, EEMBC encourages all vendors and manufacturers to join the consortium’s working group to contribute to the definition and development of our next generation AndEBench. To join the working group, contact Markus Levy for details.

Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dr. Robert Cohen, an economist and senior fellow at the Economic Strategy Institute, presented the findings of a series of six detailed case studies of how large corporations are implementing IoT. The session explored how IoT has improved their economic performance, had major impacts on business models and resulted in impressive ROIs. The companies covered span manufacturing and services firms. He also explored servicification, how manufacturing firms shift from se...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
