Your goal is clear—produce high-quality goods while optimizing resources at every step of production. And in today's uncertain economy, cost-control efforts may never have been more important. Unscheduled downtime because of equipment failure can have a serious impact on your organization's bottom line. Download this white paper from IBM, and learn the basics of predictive maintenance, the benefits it provides manufacturing operations and the underlying technologies that make it possible. Predictive analytics helps you in a number of ways: identify when equipment is likely to fail or need maintenance and take action to maximize up time and reduce future warranty claims costs; optimize allocated labor resources and spare part inventories, helping eliminate undue maintenance, prevent downtime and reduce inventory costs; and determine why certain production runs fail more often than others, identify the cause and analyze whether those runs warrant a recall.

Virtualization continues to lead a sea change for enterprise-scale data centers and cloud environments, delivering well-established benefits such as cost savings, reduced physical space and power requirements, simpler and more flexible testing environments, faster server provisioning, and improved return on investment. Yet for many organizations, one of virtualization’s greatest benefits is only now being realized in the form of highly portable and flexible virtual images. Natural extensions of virtualization technology, virtual images help organizations achieve even greater efficiencies and cost savings.

The message is simple: Trust has been lost and the digital world is here. Successful relationships with customers in the digital world are high-trust relationships. It is time for bankers to rebuild trust at the same time as developing all the communications and analytical advantages of digital technology. There is no other way. The highly digitalised, non-bank competitors are already taking the best parts of banking. Time is short. Is Apple about to join the fray? Is Amazon? Is Facebook?

"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."

There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats. Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.

Cybercriminals are stepping up their attacks on financial institutions by gaining control of customer devices with highly advanced man-in-the-browser (MitB) malware and spear phishing attacks. They then conduct real-time credential theft and take over accounts. The main reason for cybercriminals’ continued success is that highly evasive advanced financial malware allows for a wide variety of attacks that are very difficult to detect with traditional fraud prevention technologies.

A high performance computing (HPC) cluster refers to a group of servers built from off-the-shelf components that are connected via certain interconnect technologies. A cluster can deliver aggregated computing power from its many processors with many cores — sometimes hundreds, even thousands — to meet the processing demands of more complex engineering software, and therefore deliver results faster than individual workstations. If your company is in the majority that could benefit from access to more computing power, a cluster comprised of commodity servers may be a viable solution to consider, especially now that they’re easier to purchase, deploy, configure and maintain than ever before. Read more and learn about the '5 Easy Steps to a High Performance Cluster'.

Value is migrating throughout the IT industry from hardware to software and services. High Performance Computing (HPC) is no exception. IT solution providers must position themselves to maximize their delivery of business value to their clients – particularly industrial customers who often use several applications that must be integrated in a business workflow. This requires systems and hardware vendors to invest in making their infrastructure “application ready”. With its Application Ready solutions, IBM is outflanking competitors in Technical Computing and fast-tracking the delivery of client business value by providing an expertly designed, tightly integrated and performance optimized architecture for several key industrial applications. These Application Ready solutions come with a complete high-performance cluster including servers, network, storage, operating system, management software, parallel file systems and other run time libraries, all with commercial-level solution s
