Unisys Wins Three ICMG Awards in Recognition of Innovative Predictive Freight Solution and Vertical Industry Leadership

ICMG Australasian & Asia Pacific Enterprise Architecture Excellence Awards spotlight Unisys' digital transformation capabilities in travel and transportation

BLUE BELL, Pa., July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) – whose solutions process more than 20 percent of the world's air cargo shipments – today announced that its Predictive Freight Solution was named Best Software Architecture at the ICMG 2017 Australasian & Asia Pacific Architecture Excellence Awards, recognizing achievements in the field of enterprise, business and IT architecture.

The awards were presented at ICMG's Architecture World Summit in Sydney on July 13-14. A jury comprised exclusively of industry professionals honored Unisys' predictive freight solution for its modern, cloud-based architecture and ability to greatly improve supply chain visibility and route planning. Unisys Predictive Freight is an integral part of Digistics™ by Unisys, a holistic and integrated cargo logistics solution that enables carriers to streamline their freight management and improve operational efficiencies.

"A critical role that digital transformation can play in the industry involves enabling a shift from reactive tracking and monitoring to being able to move to a more proactive, agile approach," said Eric Hutto, senior vice president and president, Enterprise Solutions, Unisys. "We are empowering businesses to make more informed decisions that can dramatically improve delivery performance and enhance customer service."

Additionally, ICMG honored Unisys Vice President and Global Lead of Travel and Transportation Dheeraj Kohli as a "Top Business CIO" in recognition of his ability to drive business growth by leveraging innovative enterprise & IT architecture. Specifically, the jury felt Dheeraj demonstrated a new way of innovative thinking and effective decision-making in helping to develop industry solutions that exemplify IT and architectural excellence.

"We saw a major unmet need for solutions that seamlessly spanned across business processes, functional applications and infrastructure," said Kohli. "Ultimately, this shift to a software-driven, catalogue-based approach better enables us to address those business challenges facing the travel and transportation industry."

Unisys' Industry Director of Freight Solutions Venkatesh Pazhyanur was also recognized at the event as one of ICMG's Top 20 Chief Architects in ANZ and Asia Pacific 2017, acknowledging business leaders using IT architecture practices that are designed to handle rapid change, support growth initiatives and influence capabilities that serve as business differentiators.

"This recognition is based on the evaluation of industry trailblazers who have demonstrated unparalleled leadership in using enterprise IT and architecture to support digital transformation initiatives with a high degree of business influence and with measurable results," said Krish Ayyar, Managing Partner ICMG Australia.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
