OXplus in Veghel is proud to present its contribution to a major international metro route. Managing consultant Richard Noppert talks passionately about the ins and outs of this complex and unique project. Big Data and Internet of Things (IoT) are the source of smart maintenance. Management consultancy OXplus earned its spurs in the field of Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) in the transport sector and particularly in the rail sector. “An existing client approached us to ask whether we would, in the first instance, like to share ideas on a database solution for recording master data in conjunction with the construction of international metro lines. OXplus knows the world of transport and the processes of metro systems. We have the necessary software and hardware related knowledge and skills to build a system in the right way and this enables operators and maintainers to do their work well. But this time, therefore, on the design and build (D&B) side instead of operate and maintain (O&M) and that's something unique for us”, Richard explains enthusiastically.

To cloud or not to cloud . . . that shouldn’t be the question

Article | February 24, 2020

In my discussions with clients about their journey to cloud, it’s becoming evident that many of them are viewing cloud as a goal, instead of looking at cloud deployments as a capability. In some cases, line-of-business owners are under corporate pressures to “adopt” a cloud-first strategy. A recent Forrester Consulting study commissioned by IBM, “The Key To Enterprise Hybrid Multicloud Strategy”[1] suggests that “75% [of 350 surveyed global decision makers] have received pushback while advocating for strategies outside of cloud environments.” The result of this, unfortunately, is the lack of continued investment on their on-premises (“on-prem”) environments. From my experience, this type of deployment focus may not yield the expected results. We shouldn’t think about problem solving as “To cloud or not to cloud?” Instead, we should ask ourselves, “What is the problem I’m trying to solve?” and “Are cloud deployments (public or private) going to optimize my solution?”

Edge computing environments: what you need to know

Article | March 24, 2020

The saying goes: “If you’re not on the edge, you’re taking up too much space”. And compute itself is now moving to the edge, forcing datacentre operators to wring the last drops of productivity from their infrastructure, ahead of a future supporting multi-sensor internet of things (IoT) devices over 5G for machine learning, and even artificial intelligence (AI). Jennifer Cooke, research director of cloud-to-edge datacentre trends at IDC, says datacentre operators need to start thinking about how many systems they will need to roll out, and the people they will need to support them. “Cost becomes the prohibitive factor,”

Do you need a data hosting service?

Article | April 2, 2020

Collecting data, processing it and finally culling it to fuel your business decisions is imperative at a day and age where technology is omnipresent. And hence, the next obvious question that every business needs to ask is, ‘where are we storing our data?’ Even though many of us have never even set foot into a data center, as citizens of a connected, data-driven world, we are highly dependent on data center services - the same way we rely on efficient water supply, transport infrastructure, and electrical grids.
