Quality organizations are under pressure to reduce costs and improve quality, while being hit with new technologies and practices. Agile practices, rich-client technology and cloud platforms are creating disruption in the testing tools market.
Your goal is clear-produce high-quality goods while optimizing resources at every step of production. And in today's uncertain economy, cost-control efforts may never have been more important. Unscheduled downtime because of equipment failure can have a serious impact on your organization's bottom line. Download this white paper from IBM, and learn the basics of predictive maintenance, the benefits it provides manufacturing operations and the underlying technologies that make it possible. Predictive analytics helps you in a number of ways: identify when equipment is likely to fail or need maintenance and take action to maximize uptime and reduce future warranty claims costs; optimize allocated labor resources and spare part inventories, helping eliminate undue maintenance, prevent downtime and reduce inventory costs; and determine why certain production runs fail more often than others, identify the cause and analyze whether those runs warrant a recall.
With tight budgets, it isn't easy to create the operational dexterity needed to thrive in a competitive marketplace. View this demo to find out how IBM® SPSS® solutions for predictive operational analytics help manage physical and virtual assets, maintain infrastructure and capital equipment, and improve the efficiency of people and processes. By using your existing business information, IBM SPSS software can help you: predict and prevent equipment failures that can lead to disruptive, costly downtime; quickly identify and resolve product quality issues to mitigate risks and reduce warranty costs; optimize product assortment planning to increase revenue, reduce working capital requirements and improve the return on inventory investments; and act to retain your best employees by developing predictive attrition models to identify the workers at greatest risk of leaving the organization.

Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. Users may assume that they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is expensive and often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.

The 2017 study, The Total Economic Impact™ of Microsoft Azure IaaS, gives insight into both the costs and benefits of large-scale Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) implementation.
This commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting analyzes the return on investment and business impact that several enterprises experienced when moving from a primarily on-premises environment to Azure. The companies interviewed come from a variety of industries and locations (global/multinational, North American, and European).
In addition to a 435 percent overall return on an Azure IaaS investment*, the businesses also experienced:
Reduced data center and outsourcing costs.
Website scale and performance improvements.
Ease of experimentation through virtualized environments.
Developer and tester improvements.
Download the study to learn about the potential ROI that could be realized by shifting some or all of your management and operations to Azure.
