A Practical Guide to Transform Manufacturing Operations with Smart Pull

Published By: Dassault Systèmes     Published Date: Jun 19, 2018
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.

Orchestrating virtual data center services

Published By: dinCloud     Published Date: Jun 19, 2018
Too often, the debate about IT is dominated by a narrow focus on near-term objectives: shrill cries claim that the business will stop (or fail) if a feature isn’t added to the ecommerce site, if the mobility platform isn’t improved, if the network and compute back end aren’t upgraded, if storage and database performance isn’t accelerated. Often, these changes are truly essential, and demand immediate attention. However, midmarket firms can’t assemble a meaningful strategy from point responses to near-term issues. Increasingly, midmarket enterprises are finding that continued operational success requires an “agile-cloud” – an agility-oriented, cloud-based IT strategy that addresses the three core changes faced by midmarket firms: the changing nature of business infrastructure, the accelerating pace of change in business, and the expanding scope of IT.

Reach For The Skies

Published By: Infosys     Published Date: May 21, 2018
Commercial airplanes are expensive and complicated machines - which means two things. First, airlines have to get the best possible return from their investment by using them as much as possible. Long-haul flights can keep an airplane in the air for up to 20 hours every day, earning money for the airline with every passing minute. However, the planes makes no money on the ground, so airlines have to maintain and service the aircraft efficiently, and get it back in the air with a new payload of passengers as quickly as possible. Therefore, the MRO (Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul) is a critical and complex part of an airline's business and one of the key factors in making the business successful. Aircraft are the geese that lay golden eggs for the airline. So the airlines need to look after them.

You are what you measure

Published By: Sage People     Published Date: May 18, 2018
In some kinds of more traditional businesses the finance department tends to swallow as much data as is thrown at it but only outputs small, measured and curated amounts of insights periodically: “Here’s revenue vs target in the last quarter”. These are undoubtedly essential for proper business management, But periodic reports also mean it can be too late for the business to respond. It’s like driving by looking only in the rear-view mirror. Looking at what’s behind isn’t going to let you spot a sudden bend in the road! Essentially, the highly competitive and evolved business environment of today requires businesses to have proactive, indicative business metrics. Combined with more traditional metrics, these mean businesses have invaluable and complete insight in order to evaluate performance. Proactive, indicative business metrics are found across most successful businesses–and especially amongst C-suite employees. These people know that the benefits are proven. Analytics-driven execu

Flexible IT: On-Premise and Cloud-Based Resource in an Effective Hybrid IT Environment

Published By: Hewlett Packard Enterprise     Published Date: May 11, 2018
For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

Creating the Data Center of the Future with Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Published By: Hewlett Packard Enterprise     Published Date: May 11, 2018
Most IT professionals today recognize that enterprise IT will be hybrid in the future. To provide the optimal foundation for each workload being deployed, the hybrid IT environment will include cloud-based infrastructures—from multiple providers—co-existing alongside infrastructure within the enterprise data center or a hosted environment. But not all hyperconverged solutions yield the same results. The right hyperconverged infrastructure can meet your IT needs both today and well into the future. In this paper, we will talk about where your data center needs to be in the next five years to meet changing business demands, and how the roles of IT professionals will evolve. We will also review “hyperconvergence” models, and how they can best meet your IT needs both today and in the future, as well as the benefits you can expect along the way. Finally, we discuss what to look for in the right hyperconverged provider, who will position your IT department for success.
