With the benefits quickly stacking up, it’s easy to understand why Gartner stated HCI (Hyper-Converged Infrastructure) as one of the hottest trends in data centre infrastructure.
HCI is intended to reduce infrastructure complexity and cost, whilst enhancing scalability, agility and operational efficiency. This consolidated infrastructure enables organizations to leverage the software layer by using low cost commodity hardware, while reducing concerns around vendor lock-in, to form a seamless software- defined IT infrastructure environment well suited to today’s IT challenges.
Simple to use and manage, without specialists and more cost-effective than most traditional solutions, it’s easy to understand why more organisations are making the move from traditional architecture to Hyper-Converged Infrastructure.

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.

It’s all too easy for CIOs and technology management to build a strategy around any new technology area that is focused on delivering lower technology costs and greater operational efficiency. However, to get your cloud strategy right, you have to learn to move away from measuring the success of change against technology management care-abouts and focus on the priorities of the business. Forrester’s Business Technographics® surveys show a stark disconnect between technology management’s and the business’ desired outcomes from cloud computing; embracing the shift to cloud services means driving and measuring its success against metrics defined by the business before those of IT. This report outlines the strategic plan of Forrester’s solution for CIOs working on cloud computing. This report is designed to help you onboard the business to your cloud strategy.

Good supply chain management is essential to your operational efficiency, customer centricity, compliance, carbon footprint, and ultimately, your overall success. If handled correctly, your supply chain should improve customer service—along with the reputation of your brand—and boost your bottom line. But, as with many areas of business, the rules of the game are changing.
What’s changing? Well, everything. New regulations, increased buyer expectations, shorter product lifecycles, fluctuations in demand, new market entrants, more ethical supplier management, poor visibility of globalized supply chains—all these things, and more, are testing the limits of the traditional supply chain model. The simple truth is that the way things used to be done, and the solutions that enabled it, are no longer up to the job.

The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.
Public clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of a hybrid cloud model.
With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, when and where to run workloads to assure performance while maximizing efficiency?
In this whitepaper, we explore some of the players in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and hybrid cloud, the challenges surrounding effective implementation, and how to iden

The IT pendulum is swinging to distributed computing environments, network perimeters are dissolving, and
compute is being distributed across various parts of organizations’ infrastructure—including, at times, their extended
ecosystem. As a result, organizations need to ensure the appropriate levels of visibility and security at these remote
locations, without dramatically increasing staff or tools. They need to invest in solutions that can scale to provide
increased coverage and visibility, but that also ensure efficient use of resources. By implementing a common
distributed data services layer as part of a comprehensive security operations and analytics platform architecture
(SOAPA) and network operations architecture, organizations can reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve operational
