whitePaper |

The planet is getting smaller, flatter and smarter every day. Global market segments are connected as never before. Economic shock waves, both good and bad, travel the globe in nanoseconds. Newer, smarter technologies arrive daily. New business models are born, and old ones die, in the blink of an eye. Things we never thought of as computers - cars, clothing, appliances, electrical grids, traffic systems and supply chains - are now instrumented for intelligence. These intelligent objects, systems and processes are generating data that reveals just about anything, from large and systemic patterns to the location, temperature, security and condition of practically every item in a global supply chain. With this knowledge, we are able to lower costs, reduce waste, and improve the efficiency, productivity and quality of systems, companies, cities and more. Smarter companies are thinking differently about computing and how to deal with data that is growing exponentially and which can become stagnant and unexploited simply because of its sheer volume. These companies are embracing smarter computing to break the vicious cycle of untrustworthy data and server sprawl. They are creating IT infrastructures that are designed for data, harnessing information to unlock business insights and make better, more informed choices. Their IT infrastructures are tuned to the task of their business challenges, with optimized systems that combine hardware, software and industry domain knowledge or expertise. And they are managing their IT infrastructure with cloud technologies, accelerating the provisioning and delivery of services.
