Columbus, Ohio – Heat density is once again becoming
a top-of-mind issue for data center managers, according to a spring
survey of data center users from Emerson Network Power, a business of
Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and a global leader in maximizing availability,
capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure.

The spring installment of the biannual survey, sponsored by Emerson
Network Power, polled members of the Data Center Users’ Group^® (DCUG),
an association of influential data center, IT and facility managers, and
captured input from more than 100 respondents across North America. The
questions covered a variety of data center topics including data center
monitoring and management, capacity constraints, third-party colocation
providers, energy efficiency and heat and power density.

The survey results show that, for the first time in two years, heat
density is again one of the three biggest concerns for data center
professionals.When asked to identify their top three facility/network
concerns, 42 percent of respondents cited heat density, ranking it
third, behind energy efficiency (49 percent) and adequate monitoring (51
percent). Heat density was cited as the number one concern for the first
four years of the survey, starting in 2005. In the spring 2012 survey,
it dropped to fourth place, and adequate monitoring, availability and
energy efficiency remained in the top three until this spring’s survey.

“Throughout the past few years, much emphasis has been placed on
availability, infrastructure monitoring and efficiency; and rightly so,”
said Bob Miller, vice president, Liebert global solutions, Emerson
Network Power in North America, and a member of the DCUG board of
directors. “As data center professionals continue to struggle with
growing capacity needs and tightened budgets, attention is turning back
to one of the most fundamental aspects of the data center infrastructure
– effectively and efficiently managing heat. If not addressed, heat
density issues threaten to negatively impact performance levels of the
data center.”

The trend toward consolidation and growth is reflected in the plans data
center professionals have for their data centers throughout the next 12
months. When asked the question, 65 percent plan to consolidate or
replace existing servers, 64 percent plan to add additional servers, 27
percent plan to consolidate multiple data centers and 19 percent plan to
build a new data center. While 26 percent expressed plans to move at
least part of their operation to colocation or hosting providers, there
are still some perceived drawbacks to the option. Seventy percent cited
lack of control as the primary drawback of utilizing a colocation or
hosting provider; this was followed by increased cost (53 percent),  a
setup not unique to specific needs (29 percent) and security concerns
(22 percent).

When asked how the professional skill set demanded of data center
managers is changing, 75 percent said it’s increasingly important to
understand how various data center systems work together to support
overall objectives. In addition, 73 percent of respondents indicated
that a greater ability to ‘see the big picture’ is a necessary skill.
“It’s no longer enough for data center managers to know that all the
lights in their facilities are green,” said Miller. “They need to
understand the interconnectivity of systems and how they collectively
support the business’ abilty to grow and change. This is also likely why
we’re seeing data center monitoring and management rank as the top
concern, since these data center infrastructure management systems can
provide a window to those valuable business insights.”

Additional results include the following:

  * Fifty-six percent believe their existing data center capacity will
    suffice for three years or less.
  * Twenty-seven percent reported experiencing hot spots within the past
    12 months, while 15 percent reported experiencing an outage.
  * Thirty percent cited a lack of capital expenditure as the primary
    limiting factor on their organization’s ability to accommodate growth.
  * The average power density per rack was 5.94 kW, up slightly from
    5.92 kW in the fall 2012 survey.
  * The top operational and efficiency-related metrics being measured in
    the data center are temperature (93 percent), power utilization (88
    percent), humidity (79 percent) and cooling utilization (72
    percent). Fifty-six percent of respondents currently measure power
    usage effectiveness (PUE).

Founded in 2003, the DCUG consists of approximately 1,000 members across
North America; the group meets semi-annually to collaboratively discuss
best practices, share experiences and address the most relevant issues
affecting the reliability, availability and cost of operation for
critical installations. The group’s membership comprises executives with
a wide variety of IT and facilities management expertise from numerous
companies and industries, including board member companies Vanguard,
Cincinnati Bell Technology Solutions and Delta Air Lines, Inc., among
others.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A new report from Emerson Network
Power, a business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR) and a global leader in
maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical
infrastructure, finds that nearly half of CIOs consider themselves IT
service providers or cost centers, rather than business game changers or
strategic innovators. Simply keeping up with new technologies has become
a major barrier to embracing the rapid development of the information
era. The report, “The CIO of the Future: Becoming a Business
Game-Changer ,”  also emphasized the importance of budgeting for innovation as one way to
embrace a more strategic role in any organization.

The Emerson Network Power report includes responses from 560 CIOs and
top IT executives of companies with 500 or more employees in the United
States, Latin America, Europe and Asia. Highlights from the report include:

·CIOs from Asia (79 percent) and Latin America (78 percent) lead the
pack in expecting significant change in their role in the next 5 years.
Less dramatic change was expected in the United States and Europe, where
about half believe their role will change significantly in the next 5
years.

·Only 10 percent of CIOs see themselves as a driver of their business’
competitive future; with another 15 percent categorizing themselves as a
business peer and 26 percent seeing themselves as influential
collaborators.

·Latin American CIOs are more likely to see themselves as developers of
business strategy or game changers. U.S. CIOs are the least likely to
see themselves in this way.

·CIOs identified 40 issues as being very or extremely important to their
role as IT leader in their organization. As a result they find
themselves spending most of their time focused on providing services
rather than planning for the future.

“As a former CIO I understand both the demands of the job and the
critical role the CIO can play in supporting and shaping business
strategy,” said Steve Hassell, former Emerson CIO and current president
of Emerson Network Power’s Avocent business. “It can be difficult to get
off the hamster wheel of day-to-day operations, but trends such as
social media, mobility and data-driven decision making are only going to
increase the importance of IT in attracting and serving customers.
Emerson is rapidly addressing some of these challenges by introducing
solutions that reduce complexity and improve management of resources.
This is key to making the transition from service provider to business
leader a seamless effort.”

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND -- Catch Software,
a leading provider of test management software and services, today
announced an agreement with Unitec Institute of Technology, an
Auckland-based tertiary provider, to bring Enterprise Tester to their
computing department.

As the only tertiary provider in New Zealand with dedicated software
testing courses, Unitec is leading the way in recognising software
testing as a profession. The agreement, which includes the provision of
Catch Software's test management software and services, has been put in
place to support this growing profession. Unitec has put significant
investment into their computing department and will soon be adding a
third software testing course to their program. They see software
testing as an important area for students to gain experience in, as it
is likely employers will be seeking more graduates with testing skills.

Founder / CEO of Catch Software, Bryce Day, sees this partnership as an
opportunity to support the growth and development of the software
testing industry in New Zealand and the wider Asia-Pacific region. "To
be able to foster the growth of the next generation of testers, and
allow them to leave university with experience using our software, is a
great priviledge," says Mr Day. "Enterprise Tester is being used by
major corporations in New Zealand and globally - our customers include
Air New Zealand, Orion Health, PayPal, Intel, LG Electronics, Bayer
Healthcare, and Stanford University. If Unitec students can leave
university with real-world experience of software testing tools, and a
more than theoretical understanding of software testing methodologies
and situations, they will be able to 'hit the ground running' in the
workforce. That can only be a good thing for the software testing
industry, both here and overseas."

Unitec appreciates the generosity of Catch Software in providing their
software and services and welcomes the opportunity to expose students to
software that is being used by market leaders. "This will be of
considerable benefit to our students when they enter employment, and
will differentiate them in a very competitive market," says Unitec's
Head of Computing, Dr Hossein Sarrafzadeh.

This partnership demonstrates the way that businesses can interact with
the education sector and the value that this can bring to both students
and the corporate world. Catch and Unitec agree that creating the
industry leaders of tomorrow begins with exposing students to today's
leading technologies, which is why this is such an exciting opportunity
for both organizations.

About Unitec

Unitec is the largest Institute of Technology in New Zealand. With
21,000 students enrolled in 160 courses, it is committed to the delivery
of vocational and applied education, and practically orientated
research. Unitec's passionate about the transformative power of
education. Its focus on real world education provides work-ready
graduates with professional and vocational skills that are highly sought
after in New Zealand and around the world.

London – Organizations should keep in mind that
gamification is about more than just the underlying technology, says
Ovum. By also considering the strategic, organizational, cultural, and
psychological aspects of reasonably priced and low-risk gamification
applications, businesses can improve productivity.

In new research by Ovum, the global analyst firm shows how enterprises
and the public sector can effectively apply gamification for maximum
advantage, and recommends that organizations should begin exploring
gamification for either customer- or employee-facing uses.

“Gamification can help enhance customer engagement and manage employee
behaviors and productivity levels, but there must be clear understanding
of how such an initiative will directly benefit the business,” says Adam
Holtby, a Software & IT Solutions analyst at Ovum. “However, to better
support business goals, the mapping of the value of desired outcomes
will be developed as part of the planning stage.”

According to Ovum, social technologies and gamification work well
together when points, badges, and leaderboards (PBLs) are tied to a
meaningful value system that records status and accomplishments and
meets users’ desire for feedback. Applied this way, these tools can help
to change behaviours, develop skills, and drive innovation.

However, Holtby believes gamification can also do much more: “While much
of the early coverage on gamification has focused on guiding behavior
and building engagement, increasingly organizations can use the data
generated by gamified systems to gain insights into the skills and
reputations of both their employees and customers.”

In its report, Ovum indicates a good example of gamification in the SAP
Community Network (SCN). This network has been designed to encourage
members to participate in forums to help other members by sharing
knowledge and focusing more on the quality, rather than the quantity, of
contributions. Members automatically earn points for posting content,
but can be awarded additional points at different levels for the quality
of their contributions.

NFPA report details $328 billion impact of fire

April 18, 2013 – The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) released an updated report on the Total Cost of Fire in the United States. It can be seen from the report that the total cost of fire in 2010, adjusted for inflation, is 38 percent higher than in 1980, while its proportion of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) has declined by roughly one-third.

However, both the total cost of fire and total cost as percentage of GDP have been roughly steady for the past several years. The total cost of fire for 2010 is estimated at $328 billion, or roughly 2.2 percent of U.S. GDP.

The complete total cost of fire is defined as the sum of economic loss (e.g. property damage, business interruption), human loss (e.g. lives lost, medical treatment, pain and suffering), and the cost of provisions to prevent or mitigate the cost of fire (e.g. fire departments, insurance, and fire protection equipment and construction).

Other key findings from the report:

  • Although the core total cost of fire has increased by 45 percent since 1980 to total $108.4 billion, the economic loss due to fire decreased by 29 percent, totaling $14.8 billion.
  • The total cost of direct property damages, reported or unreported, was $13.2 billion. This figure represents 89 percent of the economic loss. The other 11 percent represents indirect losses, such as business interruption.
  • Building construction expenses needed solely for the purposes of fire safety and fire protection considerations totaled $31.7 billion.
  • Human losses were estimated at $31.9 billion.

For a fact sheet on the total cost of fire, please visit www.nfpa.org/TotalCost.

About the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
NFPA is a worldwide leader in fire, electrical, building, and life safety. The mission of the international nonprofit organization founded in 1896 is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education. NFPA develops more than 300 codes and standards to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other hazards. All NFPA codes and standards can be viewed at no cost at www.nfpa.org/freeaccess.

PURVIS, Miss. – Elderly people, especially those with medical issues and limited mobility, can be especially vulnerable should a natural or manmade disaster strike.

Local, state and federal officials are urging all Americans, in particular the elderly, to review, update and rehearse their disaster plans.

Those living in a group setting, such as a nursing home or adult living facility, should speak with the administrator to learn about the specific disaster/evacuation plan for that facility.

There are three simple steps to disaster preparation: Make a kit, plan ahead and stay informed.

Your disaster emergency kit should include the supplies to last at least three days:

  • Water: at least one gallon per day per person for drinking and sanitation;
  • Food and utensils: foods that are ready to eat and not quickly perishable are ideal;
  • Blankets and extra clothing;
  • A first aid kit, including medical insurance and Medicaid cards;
  • A battery-powered  radio and/or a NOAA weather radio;
  • A flashlight with extra batteries;
  • Prescription medicines:  These should be rotated frequently and kept up to date;
  • Medical supplies: an extra pair of glasses, hearing-aid batteries and any other personally needed medical devices;
  • An emergency contact list: to reach family, friends and emergency numbers; and
  • Extra cash: access to banks and ATMs may be limited for a time.

Prepare your disaster action plan, review and practice it regularly. If you live alone, talk to your family or friends about preparing for emergencies, getting help in the event of an evacuation and dealing with the aftermath of a disaster. Create a network of neighbors, relatives, friends and co-workers who can help in an emergency. Discuss needs and make sure everyone knows how to operate necessary medical equipment.

Arrange for electronic payments of federal benefits or other retirement income. A disaster can disrupt mail service for days or even weeks. Switching to electronic payments also eliminates the risk of stolen checks. The federal government recommends two safer ways to get federal benefits:

  • Direct deposit to a checking or savings account is the best option for people with bank accounts. Federal benefit recipients can sign up by calling (800) 333-1795 or at www.godirect.org/.
  • The Direct Express® prepaid debit card is designed as a safe and easy alternative topaper checks for people who don't have a bank account. Sign up is easy – call toll-freeat (877) 212-9991 or sign up online at http://www.usdirectexpress.com/edcfdtclient/index.html

Disaster-assistance grants are not considered taxable income and will not affect eligibility for Social Security, Medicaid, welfare assistance, food stamps, Supplemental Security Income or Aid to Families with Dependent Children.

Learn about what kinds of disasters are most likely to occur in your area and how you will be notified. Find out if your area is served by emergency radio and TV broadcasts. Other emergency alert methods might include a special siren, an automated telephone call or even a visit from emergency workers.

Emergency plans are normally established by state and local governments. County emergency management offices can supply the appropriate information. The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency maintains a website with additional preparedness information at www.msema.org.

For more information on Mississippi’s disaster recovery, visit www.msema.org, www.fema.gov/disaster/4101 and www.fema.gov/blog.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

Disaster recovery assistance is available without regard to race, color, religion, nationality, sex, age, disability, English proficiency or economic status. If you or someone you know has been discriminated against, call FEMA toll-free at 800-621-FEMA (3362). For TTY call 800-462-7585.

FEMA’s temporary housing assistance and grants for public transportation expenses, medical and dental expenses, and funeral and burial expenses do not require individuals to apply for an SBA loan. However, applicants who receive SBA loan applications must submit them to SBA loan officers to be eligible for assistance that covers personal property, vehicle repair or replacement, and moving and storage expenses.

eBRP Solutions Network, Inc. (eBRP) has been named the winner of the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) North American “Business Continuity Provider of the Year (Product)” Award for 2013.  The awards were announced at the Disaster Recovery Journal Spring World Conference in Orlando, Florida on March 19th.

The award was given  to eBRP “for their eBRP Suite, which goes beyond your standard Business Continuity Management planning tool, providing additional tools for Incident Managers to support decision-making, communication and collaboration, including notification tools” according to the BCI.

“This award is the product of hard work by all of our employees,” said David Gray, an eBRP Director, “and the accumulated benefits of input from our customers – without which eBRP Suite would not be the award-winner it is today.”

This is the second consecutive year in which eBRP has won a BCI North American award.  eBRP was the winner of the “Business Continuity Management Planning Software of the Year” award in 2012.  That award category has since been discontinued. 

“We were very proud to win Software of the Year in 2012,” said Jim Mitchell, also an eBRP Director, “but this latest award is even more gratifying.  The competition for Product of the Year provided much stiffer competition; being named the winner was both surprising – and exceptionally gratifying.”
