NTT Communications lancia Global Management One, un servizio di gestione ICT disponibile su scala globale per agilità e affidabilità operative maggiori

NTT Communications (NTT Com), l'unità aziendale del gruppo NTT (NYSE:NTT) specializzata in comunicazioni internazionali e soluzioni ICT (tecnologie dell'informazione e della comunicazione), ha reso noto oggi il lancio da parte di NTT Com di Global Management One con l'obiettivo di consentire la gestione remota delle infrastrutture (RIM, remote infrastructure management) e offrire servizi di "rightsourcing" (migliore modalità di approvvigionamento di servizi) in ambito ICT alle imprese orientate verso un'ottimizzazione del ritorno sugli investimenti effettuati in tale campo.

Il portafoglio dei servizi Global Management One copre l'intero ambito ICT, fornendo ai clienti una gamma versatile di servizi gestiti abbinabili opportunamente in funzione delle esigenze individuali. Pensato come complemento delle competenze ICT interne alle aziende, Global Management One si avvale della profonda esperienza di progettazione e della portata globale di NTT Com per garantire l'accesso a nuovi servizi, nuove tecnologie e nuovi mercati. I team ICT potranno così liberarsi delle attività meccaniche di gestione per focalizzarsi piuttosto sulle iniziative strategiche in grado di incrementare la crescita e creare valore per l'azienda.

I servizi di Global Management One assicurano una gestione dei componenti principali delle infrastrutture aziendali, quali i sistemi WAN e LAN (comprese le reti LAN wireless), basata su accordi sul livello dei servizi (SLA, Service Level Agreement). I servizi partono dalla base della piattaforma (archiviazione, database, gestione degli hypervisor) per raggiungere il livello delle attività commerciali, fornendo agli utenti finali strumenti computazionali, quali i servizi di comunicazione e collaborazione gestita, unitamente a consulenze in materia di governance generale e pianificazione strategica in ambito ICT.

I servizi forniti sono supportati da un robusto SLA (accordo sul livello dei servizi) correlato ai risultati dell'attività dei clienti e a una piattaforma di automazione autorevole e comprovata in grado di garantire una gestione agile e accurata delle infrastrutture, dimezzando mediamente il tempo impiegato per la risoluzione degli inconvenienti. I servizi Global Management One saranno inizialmente erogati dai nostri quattro centri di Mumbai, Manila, Kuala Lumpur e Barcellona, dove il 95% dei tecnici possiede oltre 150 certificazioni esclusive riconosciute dal settore. I tecnici di NTT Com sono in possesso di una competenza accreditata in materia di migliori pratiche e tecnologie all'avanguardia, quali Cisco, Microsoft, Red Hat, Oracle, VMware, Citrix, ITIL, PMI, Juniper, EMC, NetApp, Palo Alto, Six Sigma, BlueCoat, Avaya e molte altre.

I clienti stanno implementando i servizi Global Management One per i seguenti scopi:

  • Ridurre i costi ICT – il team Global Management One ha collaborato con i clienti effettuando approfondite analisi del ritorno sull'investimento (ROI) per i progetti ICT in programma. I risultati di queste analisi rivelano come i clienti si aspettino una riduzione media del 30% sulle spese ICT globali. NTT Com si è inoltre impegnata a concretizzare queste riduzioni della spesa correlando i livelli dei servizi ai risultati delle attività dei clienti.
  • Usufruire dei servizi su richiesta – l'erogazione dei servizi potrà essere concordata a consumo, in modo che i clienti possano usufruirne su richiesta, pagando solo ciò di cui hanno bisogno e che utilizzano effettivamente.
  • Snellire e rendere più affidabili le attività ICT – ampie capacità di autogestione e tassi di risoluzione dei problemi fino al 60% migliorano l'efficienza operativa e incrementano la soddisfazione degli utenti.
  • Semplificare il parco fornitori – l'ampio respiro e la scalabilità del portafoglio Global Management One consentono ai clienti il consolidamento del parco fornitori e la riduzione delle spese generali e di gestione.
  • Accedere a nuove opportunità di mercato – il portafoglio di servizi Global Management One incrementa inoltre le competenze ICT interne dei clienti, aiutandoli a offrire nuovi servizi e alimentare la crescita aziendale.

"Il team Global Management One è stato determinante per il successo del progetto HOYA IT Optimization (noto anche come "HITOP"). Prima di HITOP i nostri sistemi IT erano completamente diversi e disorganizzati … sviluppati individualmente e gestiti fra 13 unità aziendali indipendenti distribuite in 100 diverse località del mondo" ha dichiarato Yoshio Chikayasu, direttore informatico di HOYA Corporation (www.hoya.com).

"Collaborare con NTT Com per la gestione delle nostre infrastrutture e della piattaforma IT ci ha consentito di definire un modello globale di governance ed entrare nel mondo delle tecnologie cloud. I nostri team interni hanno spostato la loro attenzione su progetti più strategici, il che ci ha consentito, collaborando con NTT Com, di fornire ai nostri clienti aziendali servizi innovativi che difficilmente avremmo potuto sviluppare per conto nostro anche per motivi economici. È nostra intenzione ridurre le spese IT aziendali globali del 30% e continuare a recuperare fondi da investire nelle nostre attività principali. Tutto ciò non sarebbe stato possibile senza Global Management One."

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Code Halos - aka "digital fingerprints" - are the key organizing principle to understand a) how dumb things become smart and b) how to monetize this dynamic. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Brown, AVP, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant Technology Solutions, outlined research, analysis and recommendations from his recently published book on this phenomena on the way leading edge organizations like GE and Disney are unlocking the Internet of Things opportunity and what steps your organization should be taking to position itself for the next platform of digital competition.
In their session at @ThingsExpo, Shyam Varan Nath, Principal Architect at GE, and Ibrahim Gokcen, who leads GE's advanced IoT analytics, focused on the Internet of Things / Industrial Internet and how to make it operational for business end-users. Learn about the challenges posed by machine and sensor data and how to marry it with enterprise data. They also discussed the tips and tricks to provide the Industrial Internet as an end-user consumable service using Big Data Analytics and Industrial Cloud.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
