Where legacy operations management comes up short

Most legacy operations management products miss the point and come up short. Many of these products, although implemented are ghosts. They lurk around in buildings with limited or no business benefit.   Their primary focus is on monitoring outages. This is often referred to as a RAG tool: Red, Amber, and Green where Red signifies down, Amber signifies intermittent connectivity problems and Green signifies good connectivity. This serves a limited business purpose and cannot justify any return on investment. The product development has been focused on reporting on acceptable situations, as opposed to providing equal focus on operation in dire straits. How is this limited view operational monitoring? All it does is give you a comfortable feeling. With this approach, there is no difference in the value proposition of a cheap 'keep alive pulse' or an operational management framework product using more complex protocols

Digitisation – the ‘power’ of IoT

DS showcased the Powalert sensor at the MyBroadband conference on the 26th October 2017. IoT is the incremental next step into the optimised use of technology that was made prevalent by smart phone technology. The cost efficiencies of smart phone technologies have resulted in the deployment of a number of other generic devices that use low powered network connections as an alternative. These are the class of devices known as IoT, the Internet of Things, which were previously not networked. The PowaINFRA range is a true IoT solution.  Powalert is a product in the PowerINFRA range. This solution expands the digital world to buildings and infrastructure that were previously mostly accessed by requiring physical connections. The Powalert sensor, using IoT technology, provides the ability to determine power related failures within telecommunications. A last mile provider typically has multiple customers using leased lines. When an outage occurs at the customer prem

How IoT is transforming healthcare – 5 new technologies that help make hospitals more human

Top 5 IoT tech your hospital should be using today Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are now starting to make an impact in healthcare. Central to these technologies are goals to improve patients’ experiences in hospitals, and to make electronic health data and insights more readily available across the care continuum to enable a holistic patient diagnosis.

Humans make mistakes

Introduction to OPTOSS  Problem: Lack of training, knowledge and expertise at the time and place needed in required quantities contributes to more than 60% chance of complex system breakdowns due to human error or malicious actions. This is number one root cause of all industrial incidents, resulting in huge loss of value, property and in extreme cases loss of human life. Solution: Not recognising faults in time is not an option for OPTNET! Our product, OPTOSS, closes the gap of human inefficiencies, which are the main contributing factor in incidents and lost revenue in many industries. Read more about OPTOSS here .
