TMCnet Enterprise Solutions Week in Review
By Ashok Bindra
While there were many ups and downs this year in the enterprise solutions arena, vendors are hopeful once again, and are looking forward to an even better 2013. Panduit, for instance, promises to continue the innovative work into 2013 and offer better solutions to meet the very real needs of dynamic organizations.
In this week’s enterprise solutions column, TMCnet contributing editor, Susan J. Campbell, examines Panduit’s contribution to the community in 2012. From unified physical infrastructure solutions to acquisition of Unite Technologies, the column reviews Panduit’s contributions during the year.
Sadly, the company also lost its founder Jack Caveney Sr., who passed away in November.
Panduit also made significant strides in 2012. As per the report, Panduit delivered industry-leading enterprise solutions like the end-to-end turnkey system that allows companies to converge their building networks into one IP network.
In another column, Panduit boasts a full line of new enterprise solutions for the management of the physical data center infrastructure. The Physical Infrastructure Manager (PIM) Software platform from Panduit is a portfolio of enterprise solutions designed for the tracking of utilization and allocation of the essential IT assets comprising the data center and support users and applications throughout the enterprise.
The PIM software platform is also enhanced with the PanView iQ (PVoQ) system hardware, as well as devices provided by third parties. When working together, the combined solution delivers an end-to-end, physical-to-logical exposure of not just the data center, but the enterprise as a whole.
As a result, the data center manager can easily minimize the time from delivery of the asset to deployment, allowing for the effective reclaiming, re-purposing and re-deployment of the assets.
Lastly this week, TMCnet contributor Colleen Lynch reported on the release of an interactive home automation, security and energy management system called Quing Home, by Swiss building automation company, Swisscom (News - Alert). According to the report, it is Switzerland’s first system that combines all these features in one complete package. The program uses smartphone technology to permit users to gain access and control of their home system from their mobile devices.
That’s all for this week. Look for more next week, as we ring in the new year with even more exciting developments in Enterprise Solutions.
