CTOs, CIOs, and application architects need access to datacenter facilities capable of handling the
broad range of content serving, Big Data/analytics, and archiving functions associated with the
systems of engagement and insight that they depend upon to better service customers and enhance
business outcomes. They need to enhance their existing datacenters, they need to accelerate the
building of new datacenters in new geographies, and they need to take greater advantage of
advanced, sophisticated datacenters designed, built, and operated by service providers. IDC terms
this business and datacenter transformation the shift to the 3rd Platform.

Cisco estimates that the Internet of Everything (IoE) — the networked connection of people, process, data, and things — will generate $19 trillion in Value at Stake for the private and public sectors combined between 2013 and 2022. More than 42 percent of this value — $8 trillion — will come from one of IoE’s chief enablers, the Internet of Things (IoT). Defined by Cisco as “the intelligent connectivity of physical devices, driving massive gains in efficiency, business growth, and quality of life,” IoT often represents the quickest path to IoE value for private and public sector organizations.
This paper combines original and secondary research, as well as economic analysis, to provide a roadmap for maximizing value from IoT investments. It also explains why, in the worlds of IoT and IoE, the combination of edge computing/analytics and data center/cloud is essential to driving actionable insights that produce improved business outcomes.

A 10-year total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis is provided showing li-ion is 39% less than VRLA despite their capital cost premium. A sensitivity analysis reveals the TCO drivers. Finally we discuss li-ion batteries for retrofit and new UPS applications and the effect of temperature on battery life, runtime, and cooling.
Lithium-ion battery prices have decreased
over the years and are now becoming a viable option for UPS applications. This paper
provides a brief overview of li-ion batteries in
comparison to VRLA batteries for singlephase UPS applications. A 10-year total
cost of ownership (TCO) analysis is also
provided showing li-ion is 53% less than
VRLA despite their capital cost premium. A
sensitivity analysis reveals the TCO drivers.
Tight schedules, cost challenges and lack of visibility can strain relationships in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) market. As new technologies raise owner expectations, you need to respond rapidly to customer needs with on-target solutions. You need to know how to anticipate and exceed owners’ expectations. You need to deliver on multiple fronts, including:
• Be a partner not just a supplier: Owners are looking for irreplaceable partners who transparently deliver value.
