The hospital wanted to install video cameras in each room so that paramedics remotely monitoring patient vitals could also visually see if the child was in distress and call for immediate medical attention.
Citrix: IGEL is relying on “Cloud First” in the workplace—with Citrix on Azure
From a virtual workplace to a Cloud WorkspaceAs a technology provider in the field of end-user computing, IGEL is especially well-acquainted with any number of virtualization and cloud solutions for the provision of desktops and applications. Why did the company ultimately decide to combine Citrix Cloud and Microsoft Azure when migrating its own infrastructure?“On one hand, we’re convinced by the technological possibilities,” says the IT manager. “With HDX technology, Citrix offers sophisticated solutions for high-performance access to applications with intensive graphics - even under difficult network conditions. We’ve also seen how well Citrix and Microsoft solutions complement each other in many projects. Citrix workloads can be run very efficiently and in a highly scalable way in Microsoft Azure - at the same time, Citrix helps to optimize access to Office 365 applications such as Microsoft Teams. And lastly, the Citrix Cloud architecture concept was also a perfect match for our requirements.”In the Citrix cloud model, Citrix is responsible for the administration and operation of the management level and ensures that all core components are always the latest available. Citrix automatically installs updates and new functions, but customers can decide for themselves where they would like to operate the actual data and applications, either on the premises, in Azure, or with another cloud provider. Hybrid and multi-cloud scenarios can also be flexibly mapped. “We can seamlessly integrate the existing SAP environment which continues to run in our data center, as well as integrate new SaaS offers and cloud services into the Citrix workspace,” confirms Felsen.SVA System Vertrieb Alexander GmbH has assisted IGEL in planning and implementing the cloud migration. The computer retailer has been a Citrix and Microsoft partner for many years and has contributed its comprehensive expertise to the two manufacturers’ solutions. Initially, the aims of the migration were defined in several workshops, and then a detailed project timetable was drawn up. SVA understood what our requirements were very quickly and then fully ensured the success of the project,” the IT manager says. “It only took about two months from making the first contact for business to become productive. During that time, our administrators and support staff were also being trained by SVA, and they learned a lot about the provision of Citrix Cloud services.” 
OpenLegacy: JSW Tracked and Caught Errors Across Multiple Factory Floors in Real-time
JSW’s steel manufacturing is spread over multiple manufacturing plants, each home to dozens of machines of various types. Each machine has numerous sensors tracking multiple data points and supplying event data every 2-3 seconds. Types of data include field maintenance, material consumption, and machine usage. The data is saved in each machine’s database, in a proprietary manufacturer format. Then, each machine transfers data to the central Oracle databases.Although the process works, error reporting and handling are lacking. Because each machine uses its own data protocols, the data transfer processes are “closed” and there’s no standard way of reporting errors as they occur or passing error codes to other systems. Therefore some errors go unnoticed for a very long time. An example is the production of metal with incorrect dimensions. When this error goes unnoticed for a while, it results in financial losses.
Itron: Horizon Power Selects Itron to Deploy Multi-Application
Horizon Power had been using traditional card-based prepayment meters to assist customers in remote communities to manage their electricity costs and avoid accumulating debts. The solution worked well until the prepayment meters that had been installed stopped being manufactured. Horizon Power also had to respond to a revised regulatory code of conduct for the supply of electricity to residential customers, which made significant changes to the provision of prepayment.The major changes included restrictions on disconnection hours as well as a requirement to be able to supply customers with data on their total energy consumption, as well as their average daily consumption and charges for the previous two years.
CGI: Effectively Mitigating Risks with OT Cybersecurity Insights
Industry 4.0 is driving unparalleled interconnectivity in manufacturing environments. Moreover, due to the criticality of operations, the manufacturing industry is highly targeted for cyberattacks. Traditional IT security is not enough to protect manufacturing organizations anymore. However, manufacturers often lack the expert knowledge and capacity needed to address the growing specter of cybersecurity threats in an effective way.JDE needed a partner with the expertise to provide a comprehensive overview of all cybersecurity risks and vulnerabilities across its factories. This included all operational technology computing systems used to manage the entire industrial operation.
Fastly: Secure Serverless Compute Environment, Fewer Limitations
Serverless comes with its own set of challenges. Cold start times* — the several hundred milliseconds of latency required to execute an inactive serverless function — cause delays in the user experience that too often have a major impact on conversion rates. Add in limited observability and resource contention, as well as emerging security concerns about side-channel attacks, and it becomes clear why organizations hesitate to move business-critical workloads to serverless. What’s needed is a different approach to serverless that’s highly performant, developer friendly, and secure.

Fortinet: Furniture Manufacturer Protects Data On-premises and in the Cloud
Steelcase celebrated its centennial anniversary several years ago, and it has always viewed technology as a key differentiator. Stuart Berman, global security architect at Steelcase, comments, “We have a strong belief that if you’re not leveraging technology as part of your core business philosophy then you are not going to be in business very long.” As one of the earlier adopters of virtualization and cloud-based solutions, the company has repeatedly utilized new capabilities to drive its business forward.Berman explains: “We use the Microsoft Azure platform for our web infrastructure, but we’re not simply just a customer. We entered into a strategic relationship to partner on initiatives that have to do with understanding the nature of the workplace and how to help people interact with it more effectively.”
Glassbeam: Driving Superior Quality of Service
Our customer, Gateway Diagnostic Imaging (GDI), is an independent imaging provider in Dallas, Texas area that continues to thrive in the highly competitive outpatient imaging market. GDI has over 7 outpatient imaging centers in the Dallas area that are constantly under pressure to optimize uptime and utilization of their imaging fleet. Its biggest competitive advantage is its ability to save hundreds of dollars for its patients per exam while offering superior quality of service.Patient cost savings are attributed to the fact that GDI is not owned by a hospital network.

Precisely: Eastridge Workforce Solutions
Eastridge Workforce Solutions delivers workforce management services and technologies to more than 1,300 clients across North America. Its time and attendance system alone processes transactions from thousands of people 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. As clients’ employee's check-in and out through the system, it verifies who is allowed to be there and who should be there. It also records employees’ time to generate accurate payrolls.n the words of Brad Taylor, CIO of Eastridge, “It would be catastrophic if the system were unavailable for even just a few minutes.” Clearly, Eastridge needs a high availability/disaster recovery (HA/DR) solution that guarantees that its time and attendance system—and the data associated with it—will always be available, no matter what may occur. The company cannot afford to pause for disasters or for the normal scheduled maintenance that all systems must undergo from time to time.Yet HA/DR is not a core competency or competitive differentiator for Eastridge. Powerful, innovative workforce solutions are. Thus, the company needs a way to utilize the foremost HA/DR skills and experience, without distracting its IT group from its work in advancing the company’s business objectives.
Savi Technology: Global 50 Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG)
A Global 50 Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) company averaged 25,000 North American truck shipments per month. Because there was no system in place for real-time monitoring of inventory in transit, operation team members were unaware of real-time disruptions, rendering them unable to avoid or mitigate late or non-delivery for their customers.A new strategic cross-docking network was unable to realize high-efficiency targets because the inbound Estimated Time of Arrivals (ETAs) was inaccurate ─ reducing the number of goods that could be cross-docked. The Transportation Management System (TMS) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems did not receive real-time information and rarely received shipment plan updates.As a result, this CPG company employed hundreds of people to make check calls to carriers, drivers, and customers to update ETAs manually. This manual process was time-consuming, error-prone, and latent. Often, disruption reports were received well after they occurred, leaving logistics teams unable to mitigate late delivery impacts.
Rapid7: Enables an Expanding and Cohesive Multi-Cloud Security and Compliance Strategy
Qlik, like many other enterprises, is expanding its cloud footprint and knew it would benefit from a cohesive, enterprise-level cloud security strategy. Because many parts of the organization, including the Research and Development (R&D) and Security teams, were already using the cloud, they understood that they needed to implement holistic guidance to ensure that the company's cloud resources and data therein were adequately protected.Knowing that they needed to maintain consistent control of their cloud environments, Qlik brought on board a Cloud Architect to expand their Cloud team. Their initial goal was to ensure the security of their existing cloud environments, which consisted mostly of AWS accounts. As Qlik continues its growth as a software and services (SaaS) technology provider, which has driven expanded use of cloud providers like Azure and Google Cloud Platform, the Cloud team has also been looking to rapidly expand its cloud security best practices into these new environments.As one of many companies in today's highly competitive analytics and business intelligence industry, Qlik's goal was to enable their employees across the relevant business units to do as much as they could through self-service access to the cloud, as safely as possible. Specifically, they wanted their R&D team to innovate and their Sales team to sell, all while remaining secure, minimizing risk, and maximizing efficiency.

Samsara: How ITS ConGlobal Pioneered Fleet Electrification in their Industry
Needed a plan for investing in fleet electrification ITS ConGlobal (ITSC), one of the largest transportation support companies in the U.S., has long believed that it must operate sustainably—especially as the transportation and logistics industry is a leading source of CO2 emissions. Recent legislation aims to reduce greenhouse gasses (GHG) emissions from operations in the private sector. Still, ITSC has consistently invested in sustainable operations and stays well ahead of government-imposed regulations and timelines. In particular, they were interested in switching from diesel to electric vehicles (EVs). EVs are a significant investment of time and resources, especially considering the diverse needs of ITSC’s mixed fleet. They put together a systematic, data-driven plan for electrifying their fleet, starting with a pilot.
Royal 4 Systems: ARD Logistics Drives WISE Automotive Sequencing, WISE WMS, & ERP Software

Revenera: Siemens Builds an Efficient, Revenue-Generating Software Business
Today’s buildings are comprised of sophisticated systems to control everything from heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) to security and fire protection. And just as every building is different, so are the systems (hardware, controls, and software) that orchestrate these functions. This led Siemens Building Technologies to search for standardized licensing technology which would enable them to monetize all software and improve the licensing and order process as well as the customer experience.
Synapse Wireless: Smart Lighting Impacts Bottom Line with Efficiency
Uline is the leading distributor of shipping and packaging solutions to businesses throughout North America. Family-owned for over 40 years, Uline has built its brand on customer service. Order accuracy, quick delivery, and low prices are the core of their promise to their customers. With a robust, 800-page catalog and over 38,000 products, everything in their facilities is expected to contribute to this promise. And by everything, that means each and every one of the warehouse’s 3,014 lights.Uline’s director of Engineering, Mike McConnell, is tasked with finding efficiency wherever it may be hiding, and he understood the strategic importance of optimizing light to improve both operational and financial performance. Uline needed the lighting at its facilities operating at its best- energy-efficient, task tuned to enhance order accuracy, and simple to operate. Mike wanted his team focused on moving products, not wrestling with technology. Each day, dozens of tractor-trailers carrying tons of product are distributed from their 800,000-square-foot Lacey, Washington facility.Uline identified a luminaire that best fit their facility’s needs, but they had issues finding a reliable lighting controls provider that could deliver a solution at this scale to meet the stringent energy codes and zoning requirements they needed. A few things were necessary: The lights in the entire facility had to operate as a single system with one interface, they had to adjust to natural lights from the skylights for daylight harvesting, and the technology needed to work with Uline’s existing IT systems.The facility consisted of hundreds of aisles, each needing its own independent zone. Having all lights in each zone comes on at once was paramount; a facility of this size houses thousands of individual luminaires, and instantaneous light for each zone was a top priority. When you’re operating at peak efficiency there are several literal tons of products that must get to customers on a daily basis, you’ve got to be able to see what’s in front of you - not in 10 seconds, but right now. Other providers offered a mix of wired and wireless systems that were complex and cumbersome. The wired systems were hard to install and maintain. The wireless solutions couldn’t scale to meet the size of the facility and were slow.None of the other systems could meet Uline’s IT requirements, nor deliver the desired user experience of the control system: It needed to be reliable, and it needed to be simple to operate. With mounting energy costs and a bustling workload, Uline needed the Washington facility’s lights to light the way. Mike didn’t have time (or energy) to waste on complex solutions that didn’t deliver optimality.
Signal Sciences: Scaling Security Where Performance is Critical with Signal Sciences
Datadog is a monitoring and security platform service for cloud applications. Thousands of customers rely on Datadog to see metrics and events from software across their DevOps stack, such as cloud and security monitoring, alerts, logs, and more. Founded in 2010, the company rapidly scaled to serve its global customers by embracing the value of modern engineering and architecture practices.As the organization continued to grow, Datadog’s security team knew that their homegrown application security tools would not scale at the rate required to support a rapidly growing customer base. Adopting a WAF was the next move, but Datadog required one that provided flexibility in modern cloud architectures, supported a rapid CI/CD pipeline’s code changes and deployments without extensive tuning, and didn’t unnecessarily consume resources across security, SRE, and development teams.
Scandit: Supercharging App Ordering with 5x Faster Scanning
Improve the app’s scanning performance: optimize user experiencesElektro-Material AG (Elektro-Material) is a leading supplier of electrical components to Switzerland’s construction industry. They are part of the Rexel Group, a global wholesaler of electrical goods with over 2,100 branches in 35 countries.Elektro-Material’s customers range from industrial buyers, builders, and building contractors, to electricians and construction companies. Customers can make purchases from a comprehensive catalog of 250,000 electrical goods, by phone through a sales representative; in person, at any of Elektro-Material’s nine branches across Switzerland; and through digital channels such as the EM webshop, and the EM order app from their iOS and Android smartphones.As the digital channels were a significant source of business revenue, Elektro-Material wanted to ensure that the order process was fast and seamless for customers who used the EM app. The app had an open-source scanning solution, which customers used to scan barcodes from a catalog. They could also print barcode labels from the EM Webshop, for products that did not have barcodes, and scan them in the app.Whilst customers had a satisfactory experience placing orders through the EM app, they found the scanning process quite slow – at times taking several seconds to scan a single barcode. This delay in fulfilling orders resulted in a poor user experience for customers. As a result, customers found it quicker to reorder over the phone, or at an Elektro-Material branch, especially for large orders.Moreover, some products only had serial numbers, which could not be captured by the open-source scanning component of the EM app. These performance issues negatively impacted the customer’s purchase experience and reduced the number of orders originating through the app.Elektro-Material wanted to change this and embarked on a digital commerce initiative to improve the app’s performance and increase customer stickiness.
Sisense: Profusion Cuts Down Report Generation Time From Days to Minutes
Manual and Sporadic ReportingProfusion wished to shift its clients’ businesses away from reliance on slow, reactive, and manual Excel-based reporting and onto fast, proactive, and real-time optimization.A London creative agency asked Profusion to develop a solution that would improve the way it reported ticketing data to its client, an international live show production company. It had two requirements:Clearly communicate financial investment and return through different marketing channels in an easy-to-use, intuitive interface.Ability to query a single customer view of its customer and extract this data for use within its other business tools.For many years, the data had been shared on a complex spreadsheet, compiled manually by the creative agency. This contained eight years’ worth of UK data including 16 tours, three brands, 17 venues, and 1.33 million customers.The current reporting process required a lot of man-hours to complete and information was only available sporadically or at the client’s request.
Sisense: Marketing Agency TLC Sees 25% Improvement in Productivity
TLC’s approach to organizing high-quality data for analysis and distribution across the company and to clients was both labor-intensive and extremely time-consuming. Client data wasn’t being retained in any real meaningful fashion with data analysis and reporting was mostly done manually and managed in extremely complex Excel spreadsheets.On top of this, report delivery was done on a monthly basis by email and the sheer size of the spreadsheets was becoming problematic. Their data was triple the size of what any cloud-based system could handle and the need for superior reporting and analysis in a timely fashion to maximize fundraising was imperative.
