Today’s C-level executives expect data and analytics to provide them with speed and agility to deliver competitive advantage and to disrupt new markets. But, in today’s complex data environment exists a near paradox between these expectations, that companies will be able to rapidly deliver value using data and analytics--and the complexities of the data landscape, making it more difficult to find, govern, connect to and access the data needed to deliver that value.
Once thing is clear: if management expectation is to be met, simplifying connectivity is a must.In this white paper, veteran analyst Mike Ferguson, Managing Director of Intelligent Business Strategies explores how simplifying data access –connectivity –aligns expectations with data realities thus decreasing time to value.
In the financial services industry (FSI), high-performance compute infrastructure is not optional; it’s a prerequisite for survival. No other industry generates more data, and few face the combination of challenges that financial services does: a rapidly changing competitive landscape, a complex regulatory environment, tightening margin pressure, exponential data growth, and demanding performance service-level agreements (SLAs).
Midsized firms operate in the same hypercompetitive, digital environment as large enterprises—but with fewer technical and budget resources to draw from. That’s why it is essential for IT leaders to leverage best-practice processes and models that can help them support strategic business goals such as agility, innovation, speed-tomarket, and always-on business operations. A hybrid IT implementation can provide the infrastructure flexibility to support the next generation of high-performance, data-intensive applications. A hybrid foundation can also facilitate new, collaborative processes that bring together IT and business stakeholders.
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.

To remain competitive, manufacturers must focus on achieving new growth while driving down costs. Key to achieving this is greater flexibility and a dramatic upturn in operational efficiency across the manufacturing process. One area ripe for improvement is intralogistics transportation.
Many manufacturers still rely on autonomous guide vehicles (AGVs) to undertake repetitive transport tasks; but, rigid in nature, they do not support today’s demand-driven, dynamic manufacturing environments. Intelligent autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), like SEIT* from Milvus Robotics, offer a viable and cost-effective alternative.
