Challenge #1

Ensuring Constant Availability & Performance.

Downtime kills profitability – an IT mantra that’s especially true for manufacturers. Studies have found that the hourly cost of downtime can range from many thousands to millions, but no matter the exact cost, unplanned downtime is expensive. Application performance management (APM) and application resource management (ARM) can proactively and automatically allocate system resources ensuring optimal performance and availability.


Challenge #2

Getting it Right with a Hybrid Multicloud Method.

Building a hybrid multicloud IT infrastructure is a key component in digital transformation for manufacturers seeking to take advantage of Industry 4.0. Combining the best of private and public clouds gives organisations the ability to take advantage of all environments, with some better suited or more cost-effective for certain workloads.

Manufacturers looking for digital transformation and a secure, open environment can move their existing workloads between on-premises or hosted infrastructure and the best possible cloud environment without business disruption.

Challenge #3 

Harnessing Big Data with AI.

A single production line can generate more than 70 terabytes of big data per day, yet often that data remains unanalysed. Collecting data is one thing, but next level information technologies like AI, edge computing and cyber security are needed to extract value and act on this untapped data, especially when speed and data latency are critical factors. In a recent IBM survey, 34% of companies said they are adopting AI technology, up from 14% a year ago.
