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."

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the digitization of physical assets including sensors, devices, machines, gateways, and the network. It creates possibilities for significant value creation and new revenue generating business models via data democratization and ubiquitous analytics across IoT networks. The explosion of data in all forms in IoT requires a more robust and broader lens in order to enable smarter timely actions and better outcomes. Business operations become the key driver of IoT applications and projects. Business operations, IT, and data scientists need advanced analytics t...

How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

IoE creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented opportunities to improve business and government operations, decision making and mission support capabilities.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...
MuleSoft has announced the findings of its 2015 Connectivity Benchmark Report on the adoption and business impact of APIs. The findings suggest traditional businesses are quickly evolving into "composable enterprises" built out of hundreds of connected software services, applications and devices. Most are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) and microservices technologies like Docker. A majority are integrating wearables, like smart watches, and more than half plan to generate revenue with APIs within the next year.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions?
