    Three things to remember when building a data centre
    The COVID pandemic has made a drastic impact on society, not only on our health but if we look at the industrial aspects, it has pushed the ‘digital’ revolution forward, from how we have business meetings to the way we learn to operate factories. This sudden digital shift, together with the latest developments in 5G communication, is stimulating a need for more cloud-based and online solutions, which in turn is motivating huge investments in IT infrastructure such as data centres. In this article, Hiroki Nishiyama, global manager of data centre marketing at Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, explains further about the challenges facing this important rising industry.

    Intelligence in Manufacturing
    Energy Saving now for long-term gains.

    The current crisis in the cost of energy is likely to last for some time to come and so everyone’s attention is on how to become more efficient and reduce energy usage. The current crisis is caused by the rising global price of gas which has imprecations for heating our homes and places of work along with electricity production which is reliant in part on gas as a fuel. Of course, as more wind and solar generation is added to the mix, the nation grid will over time be less reliant on global gas prices. Energy savings, both at home and in industry, is of course a long-term goal that will contribute significantly to fixing the climate crisis.

    The perception is that deploying a data capture layer above the plant assets is going to be very expensive, actually, that is not necessarily the case and I’ll explain why.
