When a company sells services to a consumer audience primarily through a Web user interface (UI), that Web UI had better be online and available, all the time, especially if you are an airline. Such is the real-world scenario that faces Chris Skretowski, Linux Specialist at Devon, United Kingdom-based Flybe, Europe's largest regional airline.
Despite being a relatively small IT function, it powers a regional airline with over 1,700 employees and 55 aircraft, and the company has big ambitions, driven top down by a new CEO who believes that technology adoption and use can make a real difference in the company's bottom line. Having a board that is supportive of IT as a strategic business driver means there is lots of open air ahead for Skretowski, who is responsible for all the Linux infrastructure that front ends the company's missioncritical Web presence.
Flybe was one of the 21 companies that were interviewed for quantitative results on their operations as part of an IDC ROI analys
The IoT is transforming the energy industry by eliminating tradeoffs between operation, SCADA systems, maintenance and new services for assets deployed in industrial and power facilities, buildings and across the grid.
When it comes to building the best IoT system for your business application, it’s vital to keep your use case and business requirements at the forefront of your technical design strategy. In the energy industry, accessing and collecting data at the edge from disparate, heterogenous, multi-site, fixed topologies and transferring that data efficiently to the cloud to perform analytics and action business decisions is still the greatest challenge. Mission-critical data collected from the edge is integral to energy facility operations and cannot be excluded or corrupted.

Great customer service hinges on efficient order fulfillment — especially the initial processing of a customer’s order. With thousands of sales orders coming into most large organizations monthly, this mission-critical process can demand a significant portion of customer service representatives’ (CSRs') time and attention in the quest for near-perfect input accuracy and order fulfillment.
But such intensive personnel support isn’t necessary for effective order processing. Great customer service doesn’t have to be cumbersome. Sales order automation can transform customer service and operations which provide quantifiable benefits to the organization.
Automation provides an opportunity to improve order management by:
• Reducing error rates and decreasing costs per order
• Improving process transparency from receipt to archival
• Reducing reshipping and inventory problems
The technology landscape in the financial services sector is vast, ranging from cutting-edge to mission-critical, each having an impact on the industry as a whole. Customer-facing services and back-end operations alike are seeing real benefits from innovation, including greater efficiencies and higher levels of customer satisfaction.
Email has become today's most mission-critical communication channel. Each and every day, 800 million business users worldwide use email during the course of their work day and about 80 percent of a company's intellectual property passes though its email server. Email is a vital component of both internal communication between employees and external communication with customers and business partners. It has become such an integral part of normal day-to-day business operations that most companies simply cannot function without it: when email stops, your ability to conduct business also stops.
Today’s Wide Area Networks (WANs) are experiencing increased saturation with the deployment of bandwidth-intensive applications, increased numbers of users, and the need for reliable security transmissions. IT personnel responsible for these issues acknowledge the increased congestion and have strived to maintain high levels of network performance. At the same time, IT departments are tasked with the job of lowering the cost of network infrastructure and ongoing operations. Network administrators continually face the challenge of balancing the increased use of critical applications on the Internet, while eliminating downtime and congestion from affecting user quality and day-to-day business operations.
When a company creates a custom web application, it also creates a custom challenge. Traditional monitoring does not cover everything, but alerts if something goes wrong with the application are more important than ever. Learn the benefits of custom application monitoring and how NeoSpire can help.
