Many of the mysteries of equipment failure, downtime,
software and data corruption, are the result of a problematic
supply of power. There is also a common
problem with describing power problems in a standard
way. This white paper will describe the most common
types of power disturbances, what can cause them,
what they can do to your critical equipment, and how to
safeguard your equipment, using the IEEE standards
for describing power quality problems.
Internet use is trending towards bandwidth-intensive
content and an increasing number of attached “things”.
At the same time, mobile telecom networks and data
networks are converging into a cloud computing
architecture. To support needs today and tomorrow,
computing power and storage is being inserted out on
the network edge in order to lower data transport time
and increase availability. Edge computing brings
bandwidth-intensive content and latency-sensitive
applications closer to the user or data source. This
white paper explains the drivers of edge computing
and explores the various types of edge computing
Attracting Investors Webinar: With more than $18 billion in M&A activity in the first half of last year alone, the colocation industry is riding the bubble of rapid growth. Colocation data center providers are being evaluated by a wide range of investors, with varying experience and perspectives. Understanding the evaluation criteria is a critical competency for attracting the right type of investor and investment to your colocation business. Steve Wallage, Managing Director of Broad Group Consulting, has led more than 30 due diligence projects and will discuss specific areas of focus including assessment of financials, management, customers, business plan, competitive positioning and future strategy and exit.
By attending this presentation colocation providers will:
Hear how investors are assessing colocation providers
Understand different types of investor strategy and positioning
Explore actual case studies –success stories as well as examples where investors walked away
Walk away with a greater understanding of how to not only attract investment, but the right type of investor to propel their business growth
Not all data is created equal, however, and deriving business value from information dispersed over many different sources means integrating, analyzing and optimizing heterogeneous types and sources of information throughout its lifecycle. Find out how, when deployed together in the same environment, IBM TotalStorage Productivity Center, IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller and IBM Tivoli Storage Manager deliver the core technologies need to help customers tier their storage based on classes of service.
From midsize companies and government organizations to global banks and professional sports teams, all types of organizations are using data visualization to help make sense of their data and to comprehend information quickly. Keep reading to learn how six organizations of all types and sizes are using data visualization to improve customer relationships, fight fraud and more.
The cost of downtime and/or lost data can be devastating. For this reason, business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) is becoming a critical mandate. Virtualization can keep your business running through many types of planned and unplanned IT outages. Download this white paper to learn more.
In spite of the growth of virtual business activities performed via the World Wide Web, every business transaction or operation is performed at a physical place. And as handheld GPS devices drive a growing awareness of the concept of "location," people are increasingly looking for operational efficiencies, revenue growth, or more effective management as a result of geographic data services and location-based intelligence. In this white paper, David Loshin, president of Knowledge Integrity, Inc., introduces geographic data services (such as geocoding and proximity matching) and discusses how they are employed in both operational and analytical business applications. The paper also reviews analytical techniques applied across many types of organizations and examines a number of industry-specific usage scenarios.
Approaches organizations take to manage application performance vary based on data collection, types of metrics captured and how these solutions are deployed and managed. TRAC Research surveyed more than 400 organizations on key areas of web and Application Performance Monitoring. See the results in this paper.
In this IBM security report, we will take a look at the data we've gathered through our monitoring operations and the security intelligence generated by our analysts and incident response teams who interpret that data. Our aim is to help you gain important insights into the current threat landscape - with a close look at the volume of attacks, the industries most impacted , the most prevalent types of attacks and attackers, and the key factors enabling them.
Although AI and big data have delivered advances in technology these past years which make remediation more manageable and more efficient, it’s important ensure that the solution you select, meets your particular requirements, addresses and meets your needs. Some jurisdictions require technology dealing with certain types of data to be hosted on-site; data hosting, exchange, protection and privacy can all affect the choice of solution or vendor. It’s common for companies to call out these specifics in their RFPs. Other considerations include the level of precision and recall (e.g., the accuracy) required to meet project needs, the setup time for a system, its implementation and the ability to support globally dispersed team members.
Not long ago, job roles were relatively easy to define and control. A person was an “accountant” or a “graphic designer” or a “business partner.” But as organizations grew and business software became more sophisticated, new roles were added. “Accountant, New York” might require different access to applications and data than “Accountant, Chicago.” The challenge comes from the recent explosion in the numbers and types of business roles.
Sophisticated banking requires sophisticated computing systems. But which systems offer the greatest chance for success? Many banks are discovering that the answer can be found within their on-premise data centers – the mainframe computer.
Mainframes have become a modern platform for innovation. When operating in a hybrid cloud environment, mainframes provide cost flexibility, scalability, agility, sophistication and unmatched security. And they support innovation, business transformation and new types of monetization. The power of mainframe computing is being rediscovered. Specifically, in a recent 2017 survey of banking executives, we found that:
• 50 percent said they believe hybrid cloud – and the systems that underpin it – can significantly lower the cost of IT ownership
• 47 percent said they believe mainframe enabled hybrid cloud can improve operating margin
• 47 percent said they believe dual-platform hybrid cloud can accelerate innovation.

People analytics is increasingly on the agenda for organisations. With the rise of workplace technology allowing leaders to track employees’ performance, productivity and wellbeing, we partnered with the CIPD to survey over 3,000 business professionals to understand how people analytics is being used.
And the results are in. 65% of respondents who work in an organisation with a strong people analytics culture, say their business performance is strong compared to competitors.
As well as outlining the key opportunities leaders can capitalise on, this report covers:
- How different professions are using people data
- The various types of people data that are being used
- How people analytics adds value to organisations
- What the future holds for people data
The days of data being narrowly defined as highly structured information from a few specific sources is long gone. Replacing that notion is the reality of a wide variety of data types coming from multiple sources, internal and external, to an organization. All of it is in service of providing everyone from IT, to line-of-business (LOB) employees, to C-level executives with insights that can have an immediate and transformative impact.
Video data is a key part of surveillance as well as many other types of IoT implementations. But video data can be complex and costly to gather, transmit, and analyze. AllGoVision* provides an innovative analytics solution, purpose-built for video data. Powered by Intel® architecture, the solution has been deployed in more than 100 installations in 35 countries. It rapidly analyzes video from surveillance cameras for designated parameters, including specified factors, behavior patterns, motion tracking of people and objects, and environmental monitoring.
