ERP for Services (Non-manufacturing)

Typically, ERP systems designed for services industries offer modules that provide back-office support, customer relationship management, time management, expense management, resource management, and project management capabilities. Depending on the vertical market, additional industry-specific functionality may be included to address unique business requirements. Consequently, project-centric systems for accounting, architecture, construction, engineering, and professional services industries will support project management functionality; whereas health care, field service, distribution, and government systems will support functionality unique to those vertical markets.

Guidelines for Specification of Data Center Power Density


Conventional methods for specifying data center density don’t provide the guidance to assure predictable power and cooling performance for the latest IT equipment. Discover an improved method that can help assure compatibility with anticipated high-density loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of power and cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, and maximize electrical efficiency.

blade server architecture  may draw zero power. Blade server racks may draw 20 kW or more power. Compounding this problem is the fact that IT equipment is constantly being refreshed, which means the power consumption of particular racks is subject to change over time. Conventional density specifications don't fully take in to account these power variations and as time goes on they become less effective. Limitations of Conventional Density Specification Methods The two examples below illustrate the severe limitations of Read More

Deploying High-density Zones in a Low-density Data Center


New power and cooling technology allows for a simple and rapid deployment of self-contained high-density zones within an existing or new low-density data center. The independence of these high-density zones allows for reliable high-density equipment operation without a negative impact on existing power and cooling infrastructure—and with more electrical efficiency than conventional designs. Learn more now.

blade server architecture  assessment (such as APC's Blade Server Readiness Assessment) measures spare bulk power and cooling capacity as well as spare distribution capacity. Bulk cooling capacity is measured at the chiller while the distribution capacity is measured at the CRAH units on the data center floor. This data provides an estimate of cooling capacity and compares constraints against current and future requirements. Ultimately this will help answer the question, When will I run out of cooling capacity and require a Read More

Virtualization Strategy for Midsized Businesses


In these challenging times, midsized businesses need to simplify IT infrastructure and reduce costs. Yet, with diverse storage, server, and network requirements—as well as limited physical space to store and manage systems—they have few options. Discover how virtualization can offer small and midsized businesses significant benefits—not simply in server consolidation, but also with affordable business continuity.

CaminoSoft Managed Server HSM


Companies today are managing ever-increasing amounts of data. Traditional solutions have involved increasing server space by adding more hard drives. Strategically, however, this is like building storage rooms in your house, with no thought as to what will be stored where. That’s why you need an intelligent approach to data management, which doesn’t involve “building more rooms” in your systems.

Architecture-Centered Information Systems In The Manufacturing Domain - Part II - The Architecture Process


Architecture bridges the semantic gap between the requirements and software. Application software systems must be architected in order to deal with the current and future needs of the business organization. Managing software projects using architecture-centered methodologies must be an intentional step in the process of deploying information systems — not an accidental by-product of the software acquisition and integration process.

Blade Computing and the Public Sector


Across the public sector, cost savings will be decisive when considering an investment in blade computing. The decision can be made on a fairly straightforward cost basis—does the investment pay back? But blade computing also offers advantages in terms of the ability to respond to business needs, which should make it a core part of public sector IT strategy.

Impact of HBA Performance on Server Virtualization


Server consolidation is the reason enterprises deploy server virtualization technologies across their data centers, improving server and processor use. As more virtual servers are consolidated onto a single server, demand is increased on the central processing unit (CPU) and host bus interfaces. However, you can do more with less by deploying a fibre channel host bus adapter, enhancing your server consolidation levels.

When it comes to demand intelligence, which comes first? The right solution or the right architecture?


Hands down, it’s the right business intelligence (BI) architecture. If your enterprise currently uses retail demand data in a manner that favors either tier one (corporate users) or tier two members (retail sales team), then you don’t have the right architecture in place. And that means you don’t have the right demand intelligence (DI) solution. Read on to learn about what's important in a demand intelligence architecture strategy and how to choose the right DI architecture for your company.
