The industrial edge needs intelligence for many Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) projects to produce successful results, both technically and financially. To make the edge “intelligent,” end users must understand what constitutes the real edge close to or even at the data sources, what both the edge and the cloud can and cannot accomplish, the […]
Siemens is building a digital substation to pilot IoT analytics and applications for power grids used by Norwegian distribution system operator Glitre Energi Nett. The installation complies with stringent cyber-security requirements, allowing end-to-end authentication and encryption based on certificates. This will help further increase reliability, optimise efficiency and improve the security of the power grid.
Artificial Intelligence is emerging quickly as a key tool in the operation and management of data centers. As data centers continue to become more business-critical, more technologically complex and networked, and more reliant on empirical/data-driven rather than ‘hunch’ decision making so human capabilities are proving increasing challenged in managing the data center environment. The complexity […]
Legacy infrastructures are failing to meet the requirements of digital transformation. As enterprises become more hyperconnected and data-driven, IT must evolve from monolithic and manual to agile and automated. Hybrid cloud provides a platform for delivering flexible capacity with efficiency and cost control, yet many companies struggle with their hybrid cloud initiatives. A successful hybrid […]
When choosing the right cloud connectivity option, it’s important to compare the popular solutions used today: DIY cloud onramp, SD-WAN, or a multi-cloud networking platform. Read on this article to learn why cloud onramps and SD-WAN aren’t enough. Inside you’ll learn: Multicloud networking platforms are the latest in cloud connectivity and are more cost-effective and […]
Companies of all sizes are reinventing themselves on Amazon Web Services (AWS) every day. They are evolving their businesses, their processes, and their technologies to maintain a competitive advantage and to support changing business objectives. Teams are being retrained to adapt to changing roles in IT organizations; internal processes are being modified to enable lean, […]
With a topic like crypto and Bitcoin, it can be difficult to know where to start. Understandably, crypto newcomers have a mountain of questions. What is Bitcoin? Why should you care about crypto? What makes Bitcoin so unique? How does it work? And how can you invest? The purpose of this article is to answer […]
IoT is the next revolution in the mobile ecosystem with an estimated 75 billion connected IoT devices projected to be deployed by 2025. Cellular IoT including 2G, 3G and 4G technologies which can be used for IoT but not specifically optimized for IoT and LPWA modules are forecast to account for a significant percentage of […]
Credit balance refunds are not just a bump in the road for companies; they’re an opportunity to transform a common customer service scenario into a competitive advantage. Wirecard’s 2019 Credit Balance Refund Report gets to the bottom of what customers want from credit balance refunds, why it matters, and how to get there.
The rise of robots and self-driving vehicles demand greater intelligence at the local level. Keeping the latency to a minimum, more processing will need to be done at the edge and the compute time must be kept to a minimum by use of more sophisticated techniques. See how the closer interaction of human beings with […]
