Ethernet Enables the Smart Grid
The electrical power generation, transmission, and distribution system has survived for decades with limited intelligence. But today, independent power producers, green power sources, and new regulations require a smarter grid. Learn how the electric utility landscape has changed, and how Ethernet-based supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems can be used to control power flowing into and out of the grid.

The Challenges of Integrating Enterprise Resource Planning and Manufacturing Execution Systems
While enterprise applications solutions are moving closer to the plant floor, and plant-level systems are moving closer to enterprise planning application functionality, these systems will not likely converge anytime soon, because they use different technologies and have different user requirements.
: control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, which measure process variables and machine states, and perform regulatory or machine control across a process area or work cell. Human-machine interfaces (HMI) control the mechanical or electronic system interfaces that are used by a human operator, such as a mobile phone or factory system. Industrial automation technology is evolving in response to Internet-based computing, since thin clients, portal technology, and Web-enabled devices have changed plant
Best of breed versus Suite Anti-spyware
Best of breed versus Suite Anti-spyware. Acquire Free Guides and IT Reports Associated with Anti-spyware and Best of Breed. The anti-spyware industry is going in two separate directions. First, there are suite products that come with other security applications, along with anti-spyware. Second, there are best-of-breed products that are purely focused on detecting and eradicating spyware. Depending on the type of organization, choosing a suite-based anti-spyware over best-of-breed software can leave a company vulnerable.
: Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. SCADA systems are used by utility companies and other government agencies to provide a higher level of security around mission critical services such as nuclear reactors. While the base team of people was well aware of the makeup of the SCADA systems and how to theoretically compromise them, should they actually get access, I was supposed to figure out a way to get them the access. The next couple of paragraphs illustrate gaining access to such systems and how spyware

Enabling Greater Performance and Efficiency with Hybrid Storage Pools
Enterprise applications require fast access to large volumes of information, and are pushing the performance limits of traditional storage architectures. Although it's easy to add storage capacity by adding more disk drives and arrays, it's not so easy to scale storage I/O performance. See how hybrid storage pools enable a new approach to storage architectures--increasing performance, reducing costs, and simplifying management.

Optum Gets a Hand From Categoric
: made available through ERP, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition), or DCS (Distributed Control System) were not enough, the realization of supply chain management requires organizations to reach into suppliers and customers organizations for even more data. Usually, only a fraction of the collected data is of real interest to users. For instance, it is rarely necessary for a warehouse manager to know, at all times, the quantity of every item in inventory. Far more critical to providing quick
