Perhaps surprisingly, not many companies track these costs. Additionally, the CMMS can help identify the root cause of maintenance-related failure or quality problems, so that the frequency of maintenance can be reduced through prevention, (such as the training of operators) or condition monitoring, (such as a vibration analysis). This is critical to the success of any maintenance program.

High-performance SAN Connections for HPCC Systems


The network attached storage (NAS) model, based on network file systems (NFSs), creates a number of issues for high-performance computing clusters (HPCC) systems. NFS is oriented toward access, not performance—which means that it does not scale as needed for growing HPCC systems. It also adds another layer of latency between the storage and the computing systems. In this white paper, we outline a new model for storage.

A Singular View Improves Performance


The lack of visibility in sales performance caused tremendous frustration. Multiplereports came from a myriad of sources – executives had to determine which report had the relevant numbers, rather than focus on the numbers themselves. And by the time actual sales were reported for the previous month, it was too late to make necessary adjustments with suppliers or shift promotional programs. Marketing couldn’t gauge the sell-through of product lines. The company accumulated significant excess and obsolete.
