As water is increasingly being recognized as a high-value commodity, aging assets present a major threat to organizations that treat and deliver it. Improving asset performance is one of the most effective strategies water and wastewater plants and networks can implement to reduce costs and protect quality.
Data-driven asset performance management can help food & beverage manufacturers leverage tools such as equipment efficiency solutions, augmented reality and secure asset connection to transition from a reactive to a prescriptive approach. This will not only help reduce CapEx and OpEx, but also empower the workforce, whilst meeting manufacturing KPIs.
This report from Frost & Sullivan shows how manufacturers can achieve 20-30% cost savings by changing their asset maintenance approach.
Every three years, members of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) meet to review, modify and add new National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, requirements to enhance electrical safety in the workplace and the home. This year’s code review is well underway: the second draft of NEC 2020 is complete and the annual NFPA Conference and Expo is scheduled for late June.
The health care world is changing. And data has a
role to play in that change.
Traditional health care systems are becoming more
accessible and convenient, while also offering lower
priced options. Proactive care — rather than reactive
— is expected, including a shift from disease
management to disease prevention. Likewise,
a greater emphasis on personalized delivery,
including understanding populations, has led to
increased precision in holistic care management.
Combining conventional data sources with
data from previously untapped data sources —
such as electronic health records, wearables,
social determinants, social media, genetics and
diagnostics — creates new possibilities for
understanding the patterns, relationships, and
predictors of wellness and health.
Keep reading this e-book to discover how health
care leaders are generating new opportunities for
innovation and transforming how care is delivered.

Find out how companies in the auto, food, building products, chemical, electrical and other industries are using pricing technology to combat business uncertainty and exploding costs brought on by tariffs.
In addition to e-books, on-demand video and GPS devices, one of the future technological innovations envisioned by AT&T in its famous early 1990s series of “You Will” commercials was an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system that enabled drivers to wirelessly pay their tolls as they drove through a toll booth. While that prediction was perhaps not as bold as the others (Europe began developing similar ETC systems in the 1980s), today we take for granted E-ZPass in the U.S. and similar systems where drivers can enter toll roads, HOV lanes, bridges and tunnels without having to stop at a tollbooth to pay.
Typically, these systems require a driver to put an OBU (On Board Unit, which can be called transponder or “edge” IoT device) in their vehicle and, when their vehicle passes through a toll booth, the toll booth wirelessly connects to the edge to automatically deduct the toll from their bank account.
For centuries, new technologies have ushered in entirely new eras of progressive change in all facets of life, and have revolutionized
countless industries. The invention of the steam engine brought about the industrial revolution and expanded trade and transportation.
Quantum physics was the foundation of the electronics revolution that brought us transistors, TV, radio, and computers. And the Internet
has brought about a stunning information and communication revolution, which is still sending shock waves across virtually every industry,
and to the very core of our cultures and lifestyles.

Because electricity is a key commodity for business it represents significant financial risk. Yet many power management systems remain isolated and separate from the rest of the business enterprise. The result is poor access to incomplete information, with only limited knowledge of risk exposure. An integrated, comprehensive power management system that includes metering, software, and power quality mitigation equipment offers the most holistic, systems-based approach to managing this risk exposure.
Latest generation high density and variable density IT equipment create conditions that traditional data center cooling was never intended to address, resulting in cooling systems that are oversized, inefficient, and unpredictable. Room, row, and rack-based cooling methods have been developed to address these problems. This paper describes these improved cooling methods and provides guidance on when to use each type for most next generation data centers.
Implementing prefabricated modular data centers results in well-understood benefits including speed of deployment, predictability, scalability, and lifecycle cost. The process of deploying them – from designing the data center, to preparing the site, to procuring the equipment, to installation – is quite different than that of a traditional data center. This paper presents practical considerations, guidance, and results that a data center manager should expect from such a deployment.
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 providers are dealing with market forces that represent both great opportunity and significant challenge – in some cases from the same development. Providers have to deal with an ever-changing set of buyers, with CFOs and COOs playing an increased role in the decision-making. And they need to address emerging trends such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing, which ,can have both a positive and negative impact on their businesses.
New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS).
Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors.
Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line?
A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.
