DCIM tools support the diverse needs of colocation providers, large enterprises/managed service providers and midsize enterprises. This research provides data center managers with insight into seven DCIM tools and their ability to support these three uses cases.
Managing infrastructure has always brought frustration, headaches, and wasted time. That’s because IT professionals have to spend their days, nights, and weekends dealing with problems and manually tuning their infrastructure.
Traditional monitoring and support are too far removed from infrastructure, resulting in an endless cycle of break-fix-tune-repeat. Infrastructure powered by artificial intelligence, however, can overcome the limitations of humans and traditional tools.

Data is one of the most valuable assets in your enterprise. Ensuring that your data is protected, should the worst possible scenario occur, is vital. However, no single data protection tool can offer complete peace of mind.
Use the right tools for each job but manage them from one place. Read this white paper to see how Hitachi Vantara takes a unified approach to modern data protection and simplifies data protection.
With IT under increasing pressure to deliver on availability service levels and make a positive impact on the business, having a robust, efficient, and reliable modern data protection strategy is a must. Making the right IT investments can be instrumental in moving the needle, and leveraging the right tools and technology can make a substantial impact.
In a perfect world, downtime would be a thing of the past, however, as organizations continue their digital transformation journeys, more data assets are being created—generating, in turn, higher availability demands. Delivering on availability service levels is not just a technical responsibility, but also a business imperative extending well beyond IT. The consequences of failing to meet service levels can be dire and costly. Read this white paper to learn how the right tools can minimize downtime.

Factory production lines know the right jig or fixture speeds production, which increases productivity. But that’s just the beginning. Well-designed tools are more ergonomic, offering both increased worker safety and productivity, as well as cost savings. Traditional machining produces heavy, costly, multi-piece tools that become an even greater liability as repetitive motion injuries erode line productivity with worker disability. Redesign means even more protracted timelines for machined parts. While essential to efficiency, accuracy and safety, jigs and fixtures are often considered a necessary evil in the overall production process. Costly, protracted timelines for machined jigs and fixtures are the culprit here, especially for the often complex designs necessary to meet unique part needs. This, along with certain complex designs that simply cannot be manufactured using traditional methods are a reality on the production floor. But there is a better way. 3D printed jigs and fixture
Restaurant inventory management is not a favorite activity among restaurant managers, but that doesn’t mean it has to be painful. The process — especially when conducted with outdated methods — is both tedious and time-consuming. But better inventory management could have a big impact on your restaurant’s bottom line.
This infographic tells you how to handle objections from managers who don’t want to your inventory management system and lays out how to fix the problem with modern, mobile inventory tools.
The restaurant industry is buzzing about automation. With labor costs expected to double and consumer demand for a seamless checkout experience, many restaurants are looking at technologies that can automate tasks in the front-of-house. But there are back-of-house processes that have yet to be fully automated. While auto-counting your inventory may be a thing someday, it’s not here yet.
So if you can’t automate the inventory management process, you can at least use tools that automate its more cumbersome aspects. Maximum labor output, higher levels of accuracy, and better accountability are possible with a system that automates certain tasks and enable manager productivity for on-the-job success.
After reading this eBook, you’ll know:
• The many inefficiencies generated by manual, spreadsheet-based counting methods.
• The innovations being made to inventory management technology.
• How modern, mobile inventory management tools will help your managers reduce costs and increase product

While the legal requirements to provide employees with paid or unpaid leave for family and medical issues become more complex, the leave-management tools and services available to employers continue to expand.
Employers with the budget to do so are outsourcing—often to a single vendor—leave-management tasks for the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and state and local leave ordinances, according to recently released findings from a survey of 1,203 employers conducted in 2017. Employers with the resources to manage leave internally are increasingly using technology to assist them.

Teachers have always experimented with new technology and how it can be integrated to augment the lessons and content given to students. Classroom sets of books afforded teachers the opportunity to give homework, movie projectors and televisions offered an opportunity to display new content, and calculators transformed computational mathematics. Augmented and virtual reality are new tools that can transition pedagogy to include new materials and content. Students can travel to historical landmarks, world heritage sites, and past events from the safety of their classroom. Books can be scanned to reveal videos and three-dimensional content identified by the teacher to enhance the content available to the student.
