Integrated Workplace Management System Systems (IWMS) is gaining industry momentum, in large part, because of the increasing focus on the importance of optimized, unified management of all assets across a complex enterprise. And that certainly includes real estate, facilities, and related assets that have historically been managed in isolated domains. In this study, leading technology analyst Gartner Inc. assesses the IWMS market to determine how the field is changing, who the leading software providers are, and how IWMS solutions have evolved in new directions to better fulfill emerging demand.

"The potential to manage assets more efficiently, replace and upgrade them, and exploit them for purposes beyond their initial role, is significant in all cities in today’s world. However, technologies that support asset management in cities are numerous, fragmented and often inadequate. For any individual city agency, the level of cost and effort required to make improvement may seem daunting. This white paper highlights how Capgemini can help cities to become ‘smarter’: It describes how to offer to city agencies a leading practice asset management technical solution provided as-a-Service. This accelerates implementation, substantially removes funding hurdles, ensures an ongoing quality solution and incentivizes cities to migrate from a fragmented, costly and inadequate model to a common leading-edge solution."

This case study examines a European manufacturer that successfully moved from an ad-hoc workplace organization to a strategic organization over a period of five years, saving $19 million in 2009 in addition to a 400 percent return on investment over five years (from 2004 - 2009). The organization moved from a decentralized siloed group of regional facilities and real estate organizations to a fully-centralized and matrixed organization, enabling close coordination and alignment with the regional business units.

The explosion in IT demand has intensified pressure on data center resources, making it difficult to respond to business needs, especially while budgets remain flat. As capacity demands become increasingly unpredictable, calculating the future needs of the data center becomes ever more difficult. The challenge is to build a data center that will be functional, highly efficient and cost-effective to operate over its 10-to-20-year lifespan. Facilities that succeed are focusing on optimization, flexibility and planning—infusing agility through a modular data center design.

In this Technology Adoption Profile we explore the current state of replication in SMB IT departments and in particular the use of SAN-based replication. We find strong demand for both synchronous and asynchronous SAN-based replication, as well as the need to replicate data within the SMB’s own data center facilities, either to a colocated secondary array or to one within 5 km [approximately 3 miles](a campus or metro-style deployment). We also find that in order for SMBs to protect more data using replication, they need replication solutions that are non-disruptive, easy to use, and inexpensive.

This report covers the challenges of first generation deduplication technology and the advantages of next-gen deduplication products. Next generation Dedupe 2.0 systems use a common deduplication algorithm across all storage systems-whether they're smaller systems in branch offices or large data center storage facilities. That means no more reconstituting data as it traverses different storage systems, which saves bandwidth and improves performance.

In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.
