Application Software Blades for Easy Application Integration

Simplifying Data Integration with Queplix Application Software Blades

The Integration Challenge
Your business has multiple essential operational software systems that contain the lifeblood of your business. Five of these systems manage critical data about your customers. One of these is a new system for sales force automation and it lives totally in the cloud. The other four on-premise provide customer support across several different product lines and are the result of earlier merger and acquisition activity in your firm. Your ERP system has valuable data, but you also have a separate manufacturing system that is not well integrated. You have an old human resources system that will not die. You need to get the data out but this task seems elusive against other priorities. You want, but still do not have, consistent data between most of these systems. Your chief financial officer demands more and more of your time each quarter to reconcile and consolidate every gap between the systems. Your pharmaceutical division is wrestling with very complex government pricing systems including the challenge to reconcile the mess that you create with one of a kind pricing across your different business areas. Some of these are systems are held together with complex integrations, mostly one of a kind and barely maintainable old technology that cannot address your requirements. It is a mess.

The Data Management Challenge
On top of all of this, your operating divisions and geographic lines of business have all agreed to try and build out some master data across the organization. This project started in 2007 when operating results were better. Still the project drags on with missed deadlines and significant cost overrun. Despite dozens of meetings and conference calls, everyone has been unable to reach agreement on anything resembling a common data model. The data loaded into the master data management system is almost never consistent with the data in most of the operational software systems. That effort has gone on for years and consulting and integration costs are way over budget. There is a mountain of ETL and data movement links that are highly complex and barely manageable. Yesterday you sat in a meeting where they discussed the metadata catalog that would exist in two years. You could be out of a job in two years.

Unlock Your Data with our Application Software Blades
Your organization is held hostage by your applications and your data. You need to unlock this data and you need to move fast. You need to deploy a rapid solution that integrates your new cloud applications with your legacy applications. You need the flexibility to integrate the next application tomorrow. Queplix Application Software Blades gives your QVDM system the power to reach into these applications automatically, get you integrated fast and get your data synchronized through its powerful Data Harmonization capability.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
