It has been obvious for some time that the power distribution system within the data center is the key opportunity to focus upon in order to actively manage the rising costs of power and more specifically, identify problems and waste in real-time.
With future-thinking organizations sharing knowledge between Facilities and IT, the push for more intelligence within this rack-based power infrastructure has become urgent with higher rack power densities. In fact, proactive power management at all stages in the distribution chain within enterprise data centers has become the requirement to feed efficiency studies and data center infrastructure management (DCIM) style optimization initiatives.
The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.

In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and
only then think about how to secure it.
This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks,
when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management
would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected,
API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or
service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this
the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster
release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and
assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development
and delivery process.

The stadium had been using two-way radios
to support daily operations for more than
a decade — an analog-based system that
was nearing end of life. The radios and the
repeaters were starting to fail, creating
communications gaps for employees. Being
fully focused on the task at hand became
challenging for employees that were
concerned about the effectiveness of their
radios on which they readily relied on for
collaborating with other team members and
addressing issues swiftly. The original system
treated them well for a long time, but it came
time to retire the equipment and make the
move to digital.
Rosen Hotels & Resorts was looking to improve its two-way radio
communications. The organization had an aging analog radio system to support
its existing properties, with the main antenna located at its tallest building, the
24-story Rosen Centre Hotel. However, with the opening of a new property, Rosen
Shingle Creek, the lack of wide area coverage became an immediate concern.
Employees situated across departments such as catering, engineering and
security, and subpar radio connections hindered collaboration and a real-time flow

Founded over a century ago for the betterment of society, The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is one of the foremost social science universities in the world. The prestigious University has produced some of the leading lights in fi elds including law, economics, history and politics, with dozens of Nobel Prize winners and Members of Parliament among its alumni.
Today, the LSE is home to more than 10,000 students and 3,300 staff, placing considerable demand on its IT service management
team. However, as the university continued to expand in scope and complexity, its support team looked for new solutions to
overcome the infl exible and outdated service management tools.
Nicos Kyriacou, IMT Service Management Offi cer at LSE, explained: “We had the same tool for over a decade and it was so rigid that we were forced to adapt our working practices around it, rather than vice versa.
Each year, a total of 180,000 IT service tickets are created and processed. These include requests and incidents of all kinds, such as the provision of the flight information displays, an employee request for a laptop, through to IT equipment for an airline customer.

As it stands today, 33 states – Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia – and Washington D.C. now permit the medical use of marijuana.
Currently, there are ten states that have authorized the legal use of marijuana for anyone 21 years old or older (Calif. is “over 21-yrs old”): Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont and Washington (and Washington D.C.). Although criminal and civil penalties saw a dramatic change, it’s imperative to note that each of these states’ laws specifically provide that employers do not need to accommodate employee marijuana use at work. Employers are still authorized to prohibit the use of “recreational” marijuana,
A range of application security tools was developed to support the efforts to secure the enterprise from the threat posed by insecure applications. But in the ever-changing landscape of application security, how does an organization choose the right set of tools to mitigate the risks their applications pose to their environment?
