Capacity planning is one of the most difficult aspects of building a data center today, given the complexity and number of variables to consider.
This new White Paper, from leading solutions and innovation provider Panduit, brings fresh insight into the central issues facing data center planners both for initial “build” and for future growth, with valuable “real life” examples drawn from actual customer case studies.
Download now to understand how best to:
• Avoid capacity fragmentation: identify areas of “lost” or “stranded” capacity
• Establish “best fits” for capacity in your center
• Maintain equilibrium between the four critical elements of any effective data center management plan
• Implement proactive planning: speed decision-making and deployment
• Optimize existing resources
• Improve data center operations and efficiency
• Reduce OPEX
• Avoid unnecessary CAPEX by extending the life of your center.
The most important factors that determine the correct operation of modern automation, electronics, industrial computers and other devices are the correct power supply and the appropriate climatic conditions. These are necessary to ensure ongoing operation of priority infrastructure equipment – server room, data communication, power engineering.

• Reducing time to create buildable designs
• Reducing risk, offering predictable performance and improved reliability of the data center once operational
Digital transformation is creating disruptive change across every major industry, with customer expectation driving rapid innovation.
Using the case of a typical online retailer as an example, we demonstrate how technology enables enterprises to turn disruptive change into operational and competitive advantage.
This book helps you understand both sides of the hybrid IT equation and how HPE can help your organization transform its IT
operations and save time and money in the process. I delve into
the worlds of security, economics, and operations to show you
new ways to support your business workloads.
"Extracting value from data is central to the digital
transformation required for businesses to succeed
in the decades to come. Buried in data are insights
that reveals what your customers need and how
they want to receive it, how sales, manufacturing,
distribution, and other aspects of business operations
are functioning, what risks are arising to threaten
the business, and more. That insight empowers your
businesses to reach new customers, develop and
deliver new products, to operate more efficiently
and more effectively, and even to develop new
business models. "
The bar for success is rising in higher education. University leaders and IT administrators are aware of the compelling benefits of digital transformation overall—and artificial intelligence (AI) in particular. AI can amplify human capabilities by using machine learning, or deep learning, to convert the fast-growing and plentiful sources of data about all aspects of a university into actionable insights that drive better decisions. But when planning a transformational strategy, these leaders must prioritize operational continuity. It’s critical to protect the everyday activities of learning, research, and administration that rely on the IT infrastructure to consistently deliver data to its applications.
Business leaders recognize that their industries and markets are either being disrupted or have the potential to be disrupted by nimble digital players. In order to compete, senior IT leaders need to modernize their data centers.
In this Forbes Insights Executive Briefing, learn how to embrace an agile data infrastructure, modern data protection, and intelligent operations to reap the benefits of a truly modernized data center.
Technology is a fast-moving target, and organizations need agility and flexibility to compete. By modernizing your data center and maximizing the value of your corporate data, your company can gain those qualities.
In this Forbes Insights checklist, learn how to derive value from your corporate data and embrace three elements of a modernized data center: an agile data infrastructure, a modern approach to data protection, and intelligent data center operations.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology that will change the way organizations interact and will add intelligence to many products and services through new insights currently hidden in vast pools of data. In 2017 alone, venture capitalists invested more than $11.7 billion in the top 100 Artificial Intelligence startups, according to CB Insights1, and the breadth of Artificial Intelligence applications continues to grow. While human-like intelligence will remain the stuff of novels and movies for the near future, most organizations can and should explore practical Artificial Intelligence projects. This technology has the potential to:
• Improve productivity of internal applications
• Increase revenue through enhanced customer interacton and improved customer acquisiiton
• Reduce costs by optimizing operations
• Enhance products and services with "smart" functionality such as vision and voice interaction and control

Innovative mobile and field force automation (FFA) technologies are helping state and federal government agencies break down the walls that hindered cooperation and decision making between offices and field personnel.
This document is designed to help ensure that your mobile device platform selection and processes provide the power, reliability, and flexibility you need to achieve your mission — in the office, in the field, or ten flights up in the air.
There can be no doubt that the architecture for analytics has evolved
over its 25-30 year history. Many recent innovations have had significant
impacts on this architecture since the simple concept of a single
repository of data called a data warehouse. First, the data warehouse
appliance (DWA), along with the advent of the NoSQL revolution, selfservice analytics, and other trends, has had a dramatic impact on the
traditional architecture. Second, the emergence of data science, realtime operational analytics, and self-service demands has certainly had
a substantial effect on the analytical architecture.

Fire and explosion are the biggest inherent hazards facing the chemicals industry. The combination of flammable raw fuel, open flames and the presence of gas components such as oxygen (O2) methane (CH4) and carbon monoxide (CO) can make chemical processing a hazardous activity, particularly in combustion. Not only is there a potential safety risk with burning combustible materials, but their by-products are often combustible too.

Multinational companies (MNCs) are facing a unique combination of escalating customer, competitive and operational pressures which are forcing them to fundamentally change the way they do business and manage their IT infrastructures supporting network, security and mobility needs.
Lack of IT resources, limited capex and more complex global implementations are driving an increasing proportion of MNCs to offload, or 'out-task', various aspects of their day-to-day management responsibilities to skilled third-parties that can help perform these functions well.
Competition is growing fierce for restaurants — and not all of it comes from other
