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.

Librarians looking to build electronic libraries face numerous challenges. This new white paper by Integration New Media provides a summary of best practices for building an eLibrary. From defining your audience and content requirements, through to choosing a technology solution that makes sense for your use cases, this paper will provide a strong checklist of items to consider. The paper also looks at the three types of users and the key elements of designing the user experience for your eLibrary.
Government and public sector agencies are just beginning to realize how social networks can improve business results. With access to real-time communication, collaboration, and social networking platforms, agencies can improve internal process efficiencies that help them provide better services to their constituents. But first, these agencies have to consider regulatory requirements like the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) which require compliant use of these networks and the content people create on them.
Read this paper to gain an understanding of:
What the regulatory landscape of the public sector looks like
What concerns you should be aware of from a legal perspective
Be confident that you are measurably improving operational efficiency and reducing costs for your business by initiating a best-practices document performance management system with proven methodologies and tools

Many healthcare executives initially looked to their HER/EMR systems and patient portals to engage patients. But these technologies are not the complete solution. This eBook explores what your enterprise tech stack needs to look like to properly find, guide and keep patients for life through meaningful engagement.
Driven by demands to unify and extend protection across a broad spectrum of threats, EMA sees in this trend the rise of Converged Network Security (CNS) systems that integrate a wide range of capabilities and break down silos in network defense more than ever before. Scott Crawford, Managing Research Director, Security and Risk Management at EMA Research highlights specific examples of the ways in which these converged security systems put today’s more advanced capabilities to work in practical application. The IBM Security Network Protection XGS 5000 is profiled as an example of this trend, delivering not only intelligence driven, application aware defense against a variety of threats, but also the extensibility required to equip today’s organizations to confront whatever may come tomorrow.
There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats.
Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as
Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.
This white paper discusses how IBM InfoSphere can support the integration and governance of Big Data in healthcare. The white paper reviews three case studies including predictive analytics with Electronic Medical Records, time series data in a neonatal intensive care unit and predictive pathways for disease.
After developing the blockbuster video games Wing Commander and Freelancer, Chris Roberts spent 10 years in Hollywood making movies. In 2012, Roberts founded Cloud Imperium Games (CIG) and launched development of Star Citizen using crowd funding from fans eager to participate in shaping the new game. To facilitate Roberts' disruptive model for video game development, CIG needed ultra high-speed Internet connectivity. Read this case study to learn how CIG leverages blazing Internet speeds and capacity to engage players directly in creating the movie-quality gaming world of Star Citizen.
For years, manufacturers have been trying to streamline processes and associated supply chains by building marketplaces, standardized exchanges, and monolithic systems. In many cases, these solutions missed the mark, resulting in fragmented and brittle processes without easy data sharing.
Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, can potentially solve these problems. Sharing information via a trusted distributed network with embedded business logic offers many benefits for manufacturing, especially when combined with the IoT and AI communities.
Watch this webinar: Blockchain & Manufacturing: A Smarter Way to Drive Efficiency in the Semiconductor and Electronics Supply Chains, with speaker Nelson Petracek, chief technology officer, TIBCO Software.

Por años, los fabricantes han estado tratando de optimizar sus procesos y cadenas de suministro asociadas creando mercados, intercambios estandarizados, y sistemas monolíticos. En muchos casos, estas soluciones no logran su objetivo, lo que da origen a procesos fragmentados y frágiles, y en los que compartir datos es complicado.
Blockchain, la tecnología que está detrás de Bitcoin y otras criptomonedas, puede resolver estos problemas. Compartir información mediante una red distribuida confiable con una lógica de negocio integrada ofrece muchos beneficios al sector manufacturero, especialmente cuando se combina con las comunidades de IoT y de IA.
Vea este webinar titulado Blockchain y Manufactura: Una Manera Inteligente de Elevar la Eficiencia en las Cadenas de Suministro de Semiconductores y Electrónica, conducido por Nelson Petracek, director de Tecnología de TIBCO Software. Entre los temas que se abordan se incluye:
• Blockchains empresariales
• Casos de uso en el sector manufactur

You may already know what a board portal is. You Probably know that paper is heavy and hackers are a risk, and by now, you know there are multiple vendors that offer board portals. You may not realize that by making the right choice, a board can improve governance and efficiency while collaborating in a secure setting.
With lots of vendors to choose from, here are the most important questions to ask during your search, divided into the five essential categories. For private, public, non profit and government boards alike, finding an app that excels across all five categories will lead to better electronic security and a more productive board.
