FieldView Expands DCIM Leadership With New European Partner

AIT Partnership Group Leverages Award-Winning Data Center Management Solution to Limit UK Customers' Data Interruptions and Maximize Processing Efficiencies

EDISON, NJ -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Expanding its global reputation as a market leader in Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), FieldView Solutions today announced a new partnership agreement with UK-based AIT Partnership Group Ltd (AIT). AIT will leverage the company's award-winning solution, FieldView, to help enterprises streamline data center management processes -- ensuring uptime, reducing energy costs, and boosting efficiency.

Headquartered in the UK, AIT is a leading provider of specialist technical knowledge and system integration services for data center facilities and wireless/network infrastructures. The company offers a broad range of services to customers -- from data center design and infrastructure management to network switching and wireless LANs. Customers include some of Europe's largest retail, airline, and telecommunications companies.

"Rising energy costs and new regulations to reduce power consumption highlight the need for advanced data center management," said Andrew Gibson, Director of Data Center Services, AIT. "We're finding our customers are not only asking for effective data center management solutions, they're demanding it."

Initially, AIT explored using BMS (Building Management Systems) to fit customers' needs, but the technology was severely limited and proved difficult to automatically and holistically, unify the data needed to make informed decisions. AIT also found BMS too restrictive for integrating the wide range of interfaces required in comprehensively monitoring modern data center infrastructures.

"Something was clearly missing. We simply weren't able to close the gap that linked facilities and IT management -- which is key to driving efficiency. This made it increasingly difficult for our customers to keep uptime high and energy costs down," Gibson added.

After exploring several options, AIT found FieldView as an answer to their data center management issues. The FieldView platform presented a non-proprietary and vendor-neutral solution, allowing the company to automatically extract data from multiple systems and devices and present it within a single web-based view.

"DCIM helps limit service interruptions and maximize assets, physical space, as well as cooling and energy costs," noted Gibson. "FieldView is a true DCIM solution, helping to effectively solve the most difficult challenges when managing both facilities and IT."

"AIT has a well-known reputation, throughout Europe, as a trusted source for data center management to many of the largest UK businesses and multinationals," said Fred Dirla, Chief Executive Officer, FieldView Solutions. "Their commitment to customer service and technical expertise reflects FieldView Solutions' business; we look forward to a developing a strong relationship that will benefit many European companies."

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
