With the maturing of the all-flash array (AFA) market, the established market leaders in this space are turning their attention to other ways to differentiate themselves from their competition besides just product functionality. Consciously designing and driving a better customer experience (CX) is a strategy being pursued by many of these vendors.This white paper defines cloud-based predictive analytics and discusses evolving storage requirements that are driving their use and takes a look at how these platforms are being used to drive incremental value for public sector organizations in the areas of performance, availability, management, recovery, and information technology (IT) infrastructure planning.

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 no need to rework faulty products. To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support. At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
Enterprises use data virtualization software such as TIBCO® Data Virtualization to reduce data bottlenecks so more insights can be delivered for better business outcomes. For developers, data virtualization allows applications to access and use data without needing to know its technical details, such as how it is formatted or where it is physically located. For developers, data virtualization helps rapidly create reusable data services that access and transform data and deliver data analytics with even heavylifting reads completed quickly, securely, and with high performance. These data services can then be coalesced into a common data layer that can support a wide range of analytic and applications use cases. Data engineers and analytics development teams are big data virtualization users, with Gartner predicting over 50% of these teams adopting the technology by 202
The Internet of Things (IoT) didn’t just connect everything everywhere; It laid the groundwork for the next industrial revolution.
Connected devices sending data was only one achievement of the IoT—but one that helped solve the problem of data spread across countless silos that was not collected because it was too voluminous and/or too expensive to analyze.
Now, with advances in cloud computing and analytics, cheaper and more scalable factory solutions are available. This, in combination with the cost and size of sensors continuously being reduced, supplies the other achievement: the possibility for every organization to digitally transform.
Using a Smart Factory system, all relevant data is aggregated, analyzed, and acted upon. Sensors, devices, people, and processes are part of a connected ecosystem providing:
• Reduced downtime
• Minimized surplus and defects • Deep insights
• End-to-end real-time visibility

The term outsourcing can have a negative connotation,
conjuring images of layoffs and relocating jobs to third parties
in remote locations. However, outsourcing can take many
forms, and finance and accounting outsourcing (FAO) does
not always mean the displacing of the finance back office.
Specifically, FAO leverages digital technology to complement
and support the back office, streamlining processes while
providing enhanced transaction processing, reporting and
analytics capabilities. It also allows key resources to focus on
strategy, analysis and decision-making.
Virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) is a major breakthrough in network function virtualization (NFV). When
asked where they have deployed NFV in production networks, communication service providers (CSPs) consistently name vEPC as one of the top answers. Why is that?
In order to maximize their processing capacity, CSPs virtualize a subset of their network applications, including
mobile edge computing (MEC), base stations (small/macro
cells) and the mobile core, because these systems use a
The mobile packet core builds the foundation of the core
network on which mobile CSPs offer IP-based services to
their customers. Implementing vEPC solutions can help
CSPs obtain the scale necessary to accommodate growing
numbers of subscribers and large amounts of traffic or
connections while controlling costs and improving on quality of experience (QoE). In the past, evolved packet core
(EPC) solutions were deployed on purpose-built hardware.
NFV enables operators to deploy EPC c
Application-aware vEPC is the key to SDN/NFV service deployments. Deep packet inspection software provides granular network data, which lays the foundation for application awareness in mobile networks. This case study explains how a leading provider of virtualized network solutions uses the best-berforming deep packet inspection (DPI) software R&S®PACE 2 by Rohde & Schwarz to provide their CSP customers with overall network intelligence at a highly granular level.
In this case study, large health systems implement IBM Watson Health to surface improvement opportunities. Using this tool, they were able to cut costs, reduce patients’ length of stay, acquire actionable data, address number of readmissions and improve management of COPD and sepsis.
Australian businesses have long been recognised as leaders in the adoption of cloud services and the migration of core infrastructure to cloud platforms.
Yet as ambitious ‘cloud-first’ programs are executed, performance and complexity issues have led many organisations to embrace the middle ground – a hybrid IT solution combining public cloud and on-premises infrastructure.
Fast-growing hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) platforms are increasingly being recognised as an ideal enabler for this strategy, with a software-based design that combines robust computing infrastructure with a high degree of centralisation, integration, flexibility, and analytics-based monitoring and manageability.
Read how companies such as Beam Suntory have redefined enterprise architecture and learn more about the way an integrated hyperconverged infrastructure can help you build the right infrastructure for the future.
Asian ICT infrastructure investment is exploding as businesses review and modernise their data-centre architectures to keep up with the service demands of a growing and increasingly sophisticated population.
Demand for cloud services, particularly to support big-data analytics initiatives, is driving this trend. Frost & Sullivan, for example, believes the Asia-Pacific cloud computing market will grow at 28.4 percent annually through 2022. Despite this growth, many businesses are also rapidly realising that public cloud is not the best solution for every need as theydo not always offer the same level of visibility, performance, and control as on-premises infrastructure.This reality is pushing many companies towards the middle ground of hybrid IT, in which applications and infrastructure are distributed across public cloud and self-managed data centre infrastructure.
