This white paper outlines a framework that emphasizes digitization and business transformation and the new opportunities pull processes bring. The mechanism of “Pull” processes—those triggered by an actual event instead of a forecast—is nothing new. It is at the heart of many successful manufacturing strategies. Recent technological advances in digitization, including the harnessing of Big Data analytics, the use of the cloud, Business Process Management (BPM), social media, IIoT, and mobility, have extended the power of Pull beyond Lean manufacturing. In the wake of the current technological innovation wave, it is not uncommon for manufacturers to not know what next step to take. In light of these new developments, this white paper will focus on the mechanism of business transformation enabled by these technologies, which can be attributed to two major forces: the power of Pull and digitization. Nine practical applications are detailed, showing how innovative manufacturers can better

As wattages increase in high-density server racks, providing redundant power becomes more challenging and costly. Traditionally, the most practical solution for distributing redundant power in 208V server racks above 5 kW has been to connect dual 3-phase rack PDUs to dual power supplies in each server. Although this approach is reliable, it negates a rewarding system design opportunity for clustered server applications. With their inherent resilience and automated failover, high-availability server clusters will still operate reliably with a single power supply in each server instead of dual power supplies. This streamlined system design promises to reduce both capital expenditures and operating costs, potentially saving thousands of dollars per rack. The problem is that dual rack PDUs can’t distribute redundant power to a single power supply. An alternative approach is to replace the dual PDUs with an automatic transfer switch (ATS) connected to a single PDU, but perfecting an ATS tha

A Practical Guide to IDF/MDF Infrastructure Implementation Once relegated to early adopters and casual home users, VoIP (voice over Internet protocol) has matured. An essential element of any unified communications (UC) system, it is now the standard method of voice communication in business, education, government and healthcare. If your organization has not already migrated to VoIP, the question is not so much if it will, but when. Cost is the primary driver, since the data network performs double duty by carrying voice traffic as well. VoIP also offers capabilities that far exceed traditional phone systems, with unified communication platforms promising to integrate messaging, mobility, collaboration, relationship management, zoned security, intelligent call routing, disaster recovery, video, teleconferencing, status updates and other advanced features. The transition to VoIP presents a number of challenges, including assessing the ability of your network to handle not only additio

If your business is like most, you are grappling with data storage. In an annual Frost & Sullivan survey of IT decision-makers, storage growth has been listed among top data center challenges for the past five years.2 With businesses collecting, replicating, and storing exponentially more data than ever before, simply acquiring sufficient storage capacity is a problem. Even more challenging is that businesses expect more from their stored data. Data is now recognized as a precious corporate asset and competitive differentiator: spawning new business models, new revenue streams, greater intelligence, streamlined operations, and lower costs. Booming market trends such as Internet of Things and Big Data analytics are generating new opportunities faster than IT organizations can prepare for them.

On the 13th February 2017, the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act was passed in the Australian Parliament, introducing a mandatory notification regime. This bill commences on the 23rd February 2018 and will require organisations to notify data subjects and regulators in the event of an “eligible” data breach. An “eligible data breach” will occur where: ? There is unauthorised access to, or unauthorised disclosure of, the information; and ? A reasonable person would conclude that the access or disclosure would be likely to result in serious harm to any of the individuals to whom the information relates The amended legislation provides greater clarity to Australian citizens about the privacy of their personal information and will affect Australian companies as well as international organisations with Australian operations. It also means that businesses must carefully think about the practical issues related to data breach responses and the disruptive consequences of any un

Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets. What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.

Testing is critical to the success of any application. In fact, your software is only as good as the testing team behind it and their ability to identify bugs before they find their way into production. Practically speaking, that means that building and nurturing an effective testing team is mission critical. But, of course, doing so is a lot easier said than done. That's because to be successful, today’s testing teams need to be cross-functional, efficient, and focused on the right things. They also have to be fully bought in and worthy of deep trust. As a result, finding the right candidates can be a challenge, so you have to get creative. Not only that, to attract and retain the best talent, you need to keep them motivated by giving them ample opportunities to learn and advance their career, while not weighing them down with the burden of time-consuming and unnecessary administrative tasks. Instead, you want to equip your team with the right tools to enable and empower them.
