Quote-to-Order (Q2O) Systems

Quote-to-order (Q2O) solutions (sometimes known as configure, price, and quote or CPQ) enable manufacturers to mobilize their mass customization initiatives. These systems can reduce time-consuming quoting and ordering processes, decrease unit costs, and lower sales costs. Q2O suites can further help enterprises increase sales effectiveness across all channels. These solutions help companies that sell complex products and services shift their focus to customer-facing sales and service issues.

The Greening of SaaS


Traditionally, the advantage of software as a service (SaaS) is that it reduces the costs involved in installing, deploying, and supporting stand-alone software. But recent “green” initiatives have shed light on another benefit: with no hardware to purchase or software to run, SaaS applications require less energy than their on-premise counterparts. Learn how your company can benefit from the “greening” of SaaS.

A Quantitative Comparison of High Efficiency AC vs. DC Power Distribution for Data Centers


This paper presents a detailed quantitative efficiency comparison between the most efficient DC and AC power distribution methods, including an analysis of the effects of power distribution efficiency on the cooling power requirement and on total electrical consumption. The latest high efficiency AC and DC power distribution architectures are shown to have virtually the same efficiency, suggesting that a move to a DC-based architecture is unwarranted on the basis of efficiency.
