So we all know where all this virtualization came from, right? It’s a common thought that the sole business case for virtualization was derived from the inefficient use of existing hardware resources, and of course this is part of the story. But the unsung hero of virtualization was the usage of a simplified set of resources from the hardware abstraction layer. This meant that when an application was running in a virtual machine there was a good chance that problems in the operating system were down to an exhausted resource or poor configuration, not down to a bad driver or a kernel fault. The combination of vendor testing and almost instant worldwide feedback created an ecosystem where any significant problems were either removed before release or patched before you had a chance to download it anyway! Not all problems were eradicated, but the reduction in variants at the hypervisor level created a far more standard environment in which operating systems and applications could live in relative harmony.

That sounds great. What’s the problem?

Most firms have done a sterling job of ensuring that the greater percentage of their employee base have developed over the last 100 years to become, as we say in the LEF, double-deep. This model states that there is a balance between a functional skillset and commensurate IT skills. The problem here, though, is evolution and abstraction.

When one of the myriad of Internet-connected devices that you carry on your person sends you a haptic ping and shows you a contextually driven snippet of information, chances are it's a top ten list of some new meme or trend.

In today’s world, companies are constantly striving to drive value and continuous improvement within their manufacturing operations. To that end, Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), which address production process, manufacturing variability, visibility, tracking, process control and quality among others, are a key component in a company’s value-driven strategies.

Because of the nature of manufacturing and its inherent complexities, MES systems are expected to address and integrate many aspects of the manufacturing operation, which constitute a complex array of components.

As such, the understanding of MES benefits and fitment within your organization are critical building blocks for a successful MES assessment, implementation and sustainment.

Attaining deep cybersecurity knowledge is essential in the ongoing war against hackers and other cyber criminals. CSC experts conducted an extensive three-month training program for a team of Italian military officers that resulted in each of them successfully passing a key cybersecurity qualification exam.

One of the best places for CIOs to start is to determine where enterprise IT could track emotional data about their own organization. If there is none to be found (good or bad) there’s a problem with departmental digital strategy. If emotional data about IT’s roles in the enterprise is identified, this can serve as a perfect launching pad to begin a similar analysis for the departments that corporate or central government serve.

According to CSC's Patrick Molineux: "There has been a meme in my 30 years in insurance of IT budgets going down. But we are starting to see [that reversing] and there is a shift and change of emphasis from IT departments having to spend on run, to starting to spend a bit more on change, and innovation."
