Converged IT Infrastructure's Place in the Internet of Things

All of the trends leading towards the world-wide Internet of Things (IoT) – ubiquitous, embedded computing, mobile, organically distributed nodes, and far-flung networks tying them together - are also coming in full force into the IT data center. These solutions are taking the form of converged and hyperconverged modules of IT infrastructure. Organizations adopting such solutions gain from a simpler building-block way to architect and deploy IT, and forward-thinking vendors now have a unique opportunity to profit from subscription services that while delivering superior customer insight and support, also help build a trusted advisor relationship that promises an ongoing “win-win” scenario for both the client and the vendor.

There are many direct (e.g. revenue impacting) and indirect (e.g. customer satisfaction) benefits we mention in this report, but the key enabler to this opportunity is in establishing an IoT scale data analysis capability. Specifically, by approaching converged and hyperconverged solutions as an IoT “appliance”, and harvesting low-level component data on utilization, health, configuration, performance, availability, faults, and other end point metrics across the full worldwide customer base deployment of appliances, an IoT vendor can then analyze the resulting stream of data with great profit for both the vendor and each individual client. Top-notch analytics can feed support, drive product management, assure sales/account control, inform marketing, and even provide a revenue opportunity directly (e.g. offering a gold level of service to the end customer). 

An IoT data stream from a large pool of appliances is almost literally the definition of “big data” – non-stop machine data at large scale with tremendous variety (even within a single converged solution stack) – and operating and maintaining such a big data solution requires a significant amount of data wrangling, data science and ongoing maintenance to stay current. Unfortunately this means IT vendors looking to position IoT oriented solutions may have to invest a large amount of cash, staff and resources into building out and supporting such analytics. For many vendors, especially those with a varied or complex convergence solution portfolio or established as a channel partner building them from third-party reference architectures, these big data costs can be prohibitive. However, failing to provide these services may result in large friction selling and supporting converged solutions to clients now expecting to manage IT infrastructure as appliances.

In this report, we’ll look at the convergence and hyperconvergence appliance trend, and the increasing customer expectations for such solutions. In particular we’ll see how IT appliances in the market need to be treated as complete, commoditized products as ubiquitous and with the same end user expectations as emerging household IoT solutions. In this context, we’ll look at Glassbeam’s unique B2B SaaS SCALAR that converged and hyperconverged IT appliance vendors can immediately adopt to provide an IoT machine data analytic solution. We’ll see how Glassbeam can help differentiate amongst competing solutions, build a trusted client relationship, better manage and support clients, and even provide additional direct revenue opportunities.

Improving Business Mobility to Transform Workforce Effectiveness and the Customer Experience

The truly mobile business. Practically every company we speak to would like to achieve it. In its ultimate incarnation, business mobility enables users to cost-effectively and securely access apps, information and other users on demand, from any device, wherever they happen to be. Platforms, systems and protocols become transparent, even invisible, enabling users across vast distances to innovate without boundaries, collaboratively solve business problems, and engage more effectively with customers. Though relatively few firms are this far along in their business mobility initiatives, many companies are already reaping the benefits of a more versatile and productive workforce, along with increased deployment flexibility and lower management and support costs. Over time, firms often extend these initiatives beyond their own workforce, enabling them to serve customers more effectively and build new revenue streams.

However, for some companies we speak with, business mobility remains an elusive goal. As these organizations tend to learn the hard way, building a truly mobile business requires not just the right technology and capabilities, but also the business processes and management platform to unlock their full potential. To learn more about the paths companies take toward business mobility—and what makes some more successful than others—Taneja Group asked nearly 1,200 buyers and practitioners to tell us the challenges they face and capabilities/products they are adopting on the road to creating a more mobile business. A growing number of these organizations—spanning from large and small enterprises to midsize companies across a range of geographies and industries—are now experiencing benefits such as improved workforce effectiveness, reduced costs and new revenue growth from their business mobility initiatives.

In this paper, you will learn—based on our study findings and VMware customer experience—how you can benefit by following a proven path to improve business mobility for your workforce and customers.
