Headquartered in Chicago, Bean Suntory owns over 70 premium spirit brands from whiskey and rum, to vodka, cognac, tequila, and gin. Beam Suntory generates $4 billion in annual revenues.
But that revenue was in danger.
The company’s production software, Wonderware, which controls embedded systems driving almost every critical production process, was underpinned by ageing hardware. If it failed, production would come to a grinding—and expensive—halt.Every hour of downtime results in lost production, which can amount to millions of dollars in losses,” says Sanjay Kirtikar, Director Digital Technologies, Beam Suntory.
To ensure Wonderware never failed, Beam Suntory implemented hyperconverged clusters integrated with Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Platform software
The results were instant and outstanding. Beam Suntory expects a 25-35% cost benefit from lower support and maintenance efforts, and a 50% reduction in power usage.
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.
Hyperconverged Infrastructure is clearly the future of the data centre - enabling enterprises to drive IT modernisation to help manufacturing companies continuously innovate in an ever-changing, rapidly evolving, technology-led environment.
The combination of reliable data centre hardware from Lenovo and powerful platform from Nutanix creates a compelling offering for enterprises to intelligently transform their IT infrastructure.

All native and ‘transitioning’ media companies are focusing heavily on content to save existing businesses, or building new business models, or both. Television broadcasters, wary of the growing cord-cutting, are spending large sums on premium content. In 2017, the top four media companies spent more than USD 34 billion on original and acquired non-sports programming. Pure-play OTT providers have, on the other hand, bet big on content to shore up on subscribers. Netflix alone spent more than USD 6 billion on content last year, while spend was USD 7 billion for Amazon and Hulu combined. Transitioning media companies, such as telecom and technology companies that are moving towards being a media company, are also allocating sizable funds for content in their quest to explore supplementary businesses, by boosting customer engagement on their platforms. Apple and Facebook have started creating their own original content, and spend is only going to expand further.
A leading US-based broadcasting and publishing firm, with a market value of $17 Bn plus, creates, acquires and distributes entertainment content to global consumers over diverse platforms. The Company owns iconic media brands and has the viewership base amongst the US cable networks.

LTI's ADAPT (AD Sales Audience Prediction and tracking) solution optimized allocation, management, tracking and maintenance of advertisement air time to substantial increase in Marketing ROI.

A data science platform is where all data science work takes place and acts as the system of record for predictive models. While a few leading model-driven businesses have made the data science platform an integral part of their enterprise architecture, most companies are still trying to understand what a data science platform is and how it fits into their architecture. Data science is unlike other technical disciplines, and models are not like software or data. Therefore, a data science platform requires a different type of technology platform.
This document provides IT leaders with the top 10 questions to ask of data science platforms to ensure the platform handles the uniqueness of data science work.
As organizations increasingly strive to become model-driven, they recognize the necessity of a data science platform. According to a recent survey report “Key Factors on the Journey to Become Model-Driven”, 86% of model-driven companies differentiate themselves by using a data science platform. And yet the question of whether to build or buy still remains.
This paper presents a framework to facilitate the decision process, and considers the four-year projection of total costs for both approaches in a sample scenario.
Read this whitepaper to understand three major factors in your decision process:
Total cost of ownership - Internal build costs often run into the tens of millions
Opportunity costs - Distraction from your core competency
Risk factors - Missed deadlines and delayed time to market
