"Cloud-based predictive analytics platforms are a relatively new phenomenon, and they go far beyond
the remote monitoring systems of a prior generation. Three key features differentiate cloud-based
predictive analytics — data sharing, scope of monitoring, and use of artificial intelligence/machine
learning (AI/ML) to drive autonomous operations. To help familiarize the uninitiated with specifically
what types of value these systems can drive, IDC discusses them at some length in this white paper."

ESG recently conducted a quantitative research study to assess companies’ IT Transformation maturity. ESG found that operating a modern server environment, defined as an environment in which operations tasks are more automated than manual, led to a perception of cost parity with the public cloud. Nearly half felt their cost of compute was highly competitive with CSPs and another 48% felt it was generally comparable. This compares favorably to the 19% and 47% respectively among organizations running a legacy server environment. Download this solution brief from Dell EMC and Intel® to learn more.

While enterprises continue to own and operate in-house datacenters, their use of colocation and other outsourcing services is growing fast. Demand for colocation and wholesale datacenters, with their readily available space and power, their professional operations teams and, increasingly, their rich connectivity and value-added offerings, has never been stronger. 451 Research forecasts that the operational square footage of the global colocation and wholesale sector will grow at a healthy 7% CAGR from 2017 to 2020.
Colocation facilities are rapidly designing and building new facilities in order to capitalize on market opportunity. Getting the facility up and running is the first challenge. The second? Recruiting, training, and retaining qualified data center staff. In this webinar, co-hosted by Tony DeSpirito, VP & General Manager Data Center Operations at Schneider Electric, & Brian Gisi, Infrastructure Management & Services Manager at IBM, to access field-tested methods & strategies that can help you:
1. Overcome the worldwide shortage of experienced data center professionals
2. Understand how out-tasking data center operations can benefit you & your clients
3. Identify key characteristics of a strong data center operations partner
The demands of modern IIoT applications increases the complexity of systems infrastructure
and puts additional pressure on IT and OT security. As the frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks increase, operations must leverage industry standards to achieve consistent protection. This paper will address how IEC62443 can be applied to industrial control systems and help readers understand the various priorities and steps required to help mitigate cyber
The safety of operations can have a direct, positive impact on the operational profitability of the plant. Environmental health and safety (EH&S) can now be viewed not just as a cost center, but as a profit center, and new levels of both safety and profitability can result. Real-time safe profitability is no longer a dream—it is a reality!
To remain competitive, manufacturers must focus on achieving new growth while driving down costs. Key to achieving this is greater flexibility and a dramatic upturn in operational efficiency across the manufacturing process. One area ripe for improvement is intralogistics transportation.
Many manufacturers still rely on autonomous guide vehicles (AGVs) to undertake repetitive transport tasks; but, rigid in nature, they do not support today’s demand-driven, dynamic manufacturing environments. Intelligent autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), like SEIT* from Milvus Robotics, offer a viable and cost-effective alternative.
This solution brief describes how to solve business challenges through investment in innovative technologies.
o The growing video surveillance market is driving demand for advanced video analysis technologies. Businesses and organizations from all vertical sectors are looking to leverage the benefits of enhanced detection accuracy and flexibility provided by deep learning to solve their security, safety, and operations challenges. Discover how Agent Vi’s innoVi* leverages cutting-edge deep learning technology to transform the hundreds, or even thousands, of cameras deployed across a city into smart video devices, contributing to the city’s ability to improve security, safety, and incident response citywide.

A forward-looking CMDB does more than keep an organization's IT operations running. It draws clear connections between IT components and business services, which is the core of Business Service Management (BSM). But even more critical than the CMDB's ability to support business as it is now, is the question of how well it will drive business innovation in the future.
As organizations have improved service delivery, they have also turned their focus to presenting business value more positively. These organizations are beginning to develop true BSM systems in two ways: by understanding the metrics that successful businesses employ to determine the value of IT, and by linking these metrics and associated business services to IT infrastructure components.
As IT evolves towards a more business-aligned position, it must seek out new ways of working that support more effective operations, service creation, and service delivery. These include technologies, processes, and a culture that supports higher levels of accountability, as well as more dynamic responsiveness to business needs.
The key benefit of creating a case management methodology is to multiply its effectiveness by replicating it across the organization's patient-facing departments, practices and functions. In this way, your organization can reduce costs, increase quality and streamline its operations.
Ensuring the reliability and efficiency of your data center operations requires a strategic partner that is qualified to minimize energy usage, reduce costs, and optimize space utilization, helping you meet critical business initiatives.
