ATLANTA, Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The costs and challenges associated with electronic asset failures are significant. To better understand these issues, Innovolt® Inc. sponsored a survey of executives from several industries that are particularly dependent upon the reliability, performance, and lifespan of sensitive electronic equipment. The study, conducted by Gatepoint Research, sheds new light on the challenges that businesses face with an emphasis on the problems caused by power quality fluctuations and the true costs related to equipment issues requiring service calls.
Innovolt, the leading provider of intelligent electronics protection and asset management technology, has chronicled the survey's findings in a new e-book entitled Unreliable Energy, Sensitive Electronics and the Rising Costs of Field Service which is available on the company's website.
A sample of the key findings includes:
- Almost a fifth of respondents report that 25 percent of their assets require service each month while 4 out of 10 must service 16 percent or more of their assets each month.
- That adds up. 73 percent of companies with more than 1,000 electronic assets deployed report that each service call costs at least $150.
- 75 percent of companies report that it takes more than an hour to bring downed equipment back online with an alarming 20 percent of companies reporting it takes more than 24 hours.
- Nine out of 10 respondents identify decreased customer satisfaction as the most critical ramification of electronic asset downtime.
- 93 percent cite the rising costs of servicing electronic equipment as a challenge.
- 77 percent of executives say that predictive maintenance is a trend that will impact their ability to grow. 73 percent cite the importance of remote diagnostics as well.
The survey, which was conducted during the fall of 2013, included nearly 100 executives from several industries—gaming, office equipment, self-service kiosks, retail and others—all of which rely on the uptime of electronic assets.
"This survey data clearly articulates the need that C-level executives and information technology managers have for quality electronics management solutions," says Jeff Spence, president of Innovolt. "This e-book is indicative of the intelligence and resources Innovolt provides for the marketplace as well as its partners and customers, to educate on the lesser known issues surrounding equipment performance and antiquated power systems."

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
