It is a painful paradox that while the workplace has become fast paced today because of technological innovations, the development team is also under enormous pressure to deliver on schedule. The unending pressure to accelerate the delivery of shippable products or a working software.

BitTitan | February 15, 2021

BitTitan, the developer of MigrationWiz and a global leader in managed services automation, introduces novel features in MigrationWiz. This will provide greater control and visibility for IT professionals. By this, they will be able to migrate tenant-to-tenant instances of Microsoft Teams. The novel features exemplify a robust investment in Teams migration capabilities from BitTitan. This will be happening from a demand for Teams projects that continue to rise. The adoption of Microsoft Teams has soared during the 2020 pandemic. It grew 894% from the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown to June 2020. The usage of teams rose from 44 million daily active users in March to 75 million in April 2020. And by October 2020, Microsoft reported 115 million daily active Teams users, per its Q1 2021 earnings announcement. Through leveraging MigrationWiz, users can currently migrate channel structure, conversation history, files, and user permissions for individual teams and channels. Also, private chats and OneNote can now be transmitted from one Microsoft Teams to another. With this, BitTitan saw analogous Teams' growth. It experiences a 400% rise in terms of migration revenue in the previous year. The company also saw a 9,000% mount in the amount of data being migrated between tenant-to-tenant instances of Teams. And approximately 770% growth in the number of Team projects being migrated. Observing the figures, Microsoft Teams has now become an increasingly essential tool for companies globally. Geeman Yip, BitTitan founder, and CEO mentions it in his interview. While Teams is continuously evolving, BitTitan is uniquely positioned itself to support Teams migrations progressively. Another novel feature BitTitan incorporated into MigrationWiz is the new Teams Migration Assessment. It is powered by Voleer. The assessment can evaluate the tenant environment and give superior visibility into all the components to get migrated. These capabilities can assist IT managers gain better insight into the scope of the migration. Along with it, it can estimate costs more accurately, and identify project challenges that need to be proactively addressed. All of these assessments can help in governing Team usage and data before and after the migration process. Michelle Canada, Solution Architect, New Era Technology said that not only is it faster to collect data with the assessments from BitTitan Voleer, but it is also easy to read.

Siemens and Google Cloud will Collaborate for AI-powered Manufacturing Solutions

Siemens | April 20, 2021

Google Cloud and Siemens, an innovation and technology leader in industrial automation and software, announced a new collaboration today to simplify factory operations and increase shop floor productivity. Siemens plans to combine Google Cloud's leading data cloud and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) technology with its factory automation systems to assist manufacturers in innovating for the future. Today's manufacturing processes are driven by data, but many factories prefer to use legacy software and multiple systems to analyze plant data, which is resource-intensive and necessarily requires regular manual upgrades to ensure accuracy. Moreover, while several businesses have implemented AI projects in "islands" around the factory floor, manufacturers have failed to incorporate AI at scale across their global operations. Siemens has built its company on pioneering technologies that have propelled the automotive industry forward for more than 170 years. Manufacturers will be able to align their factory data, run cloud-based AI/ML models on top of that data, and deploy algorithms at the network edge by integrating Google Cloud's data cloud and AI/ML technologies with Siemens' Digital Industries Factory Automation portfolio. This allows applications such as visual product inspection and predicting machine wear and tear on the assembly line. Deploying AI on the factory floor and incorporating it into automation and the network is a dynamic task that necessitates highly technical experience as well as innovative products like Siemens Industrial Edge. The collaboration between Google Cloud and Siemens aims to make AI integration in connection with the Industrial Edge—and its management at scale—easier by inspiring employees on the factory floor, automating mundane tasks, and optimizing overall productivity. About Google Cloud With the best infrastructure, platform, industry solutions, and expertise, Google Cloud accelerate companies' ability to digitally transform their businesses. They provide enterprise-grade cloud platforms that harness Google's cutting-edge technologies to help businesses run more effectively and respond to changing needs, providing customers with a solid foundation for the future. Customers in over 200 countries and territories depend on Google Cloud as a trustworthy partner to address their most pressing business challenges. About Siemens Siemens is an innovation leader in automation and digitalization. Closely collaborating with partners and customers, drives the digital transformation in the process and discrete industries. With its Digital Enterprise portfolio, Siemens provides companies of all sizes with an end-to-end set of products, solutions, and services to integrate and digitalize the entire value chain. Optimized for the specific needs of each industry, Siemen's unique portfolio supports customers to achieve greater productivity and flexibility.
