Flash Foward: Making Flash Storage a Reality for the Mid-Sized Business

Softchoice | 4/11/2018 1:58:34 PM

IDC predicts that by 2020, there will be 44 trillion gigabytes of digital data in the world.

Organizations capture more of it every day, from a massive range of sources. Aside from structured corporate files, they ingest huge quantities of unstructured information. Everything from corporate websites and email platforms to customer surveys and employee opinion polls generates data.

Meanwhile, emerging technologies like machine-learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) have prompted a spike in the volume of data.

It all has potential value to the business.

Yet, keeping up with the expanding data universe isn’t a simple matter of finding more space. How organizations store and manage data is as important as the capacity for storage. Analyzing these data resources empowers the business to make better, data-driven decisions.
This new reality has led to widespread adoption of big data and predictive analytics. It has also meant a rapid growth in the number of business applications that rely on data-intensive workloads. In many environments, the performance of core IT applications is critical. To gain the most from data analytics, the business ...find out more!

Bridging the gap between IT and OT with IoT for Oil & Gas

BSQUARE | 3/22/2018 1:06:06 PM

Digital transformation is a major disruptive force facing oil & gas companies today. The rise of “smart” equipment and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has forced industrial organizations to rethink the way they look at physical assets and operations. But in trying to keep up with rapidly advancing technology, it’s easy to overlook the organizational evolution necessary to adapt successfully.
Now, as IIoT adoption mounts, pressure to demonstrate quick ROI is intensifying. Maximizing time to value requires strategy and coordination – which means operators must align the divided worlds of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT). In this white paper you’ll discover:

• Factors involved in IT-OT integration
• Benefit potential of aligning the two for your business
• How you can optimize ROI with IT-OT convergence
