Une gamme de services unique de Cogeco Services Réseaux aide les chefs des services informatiques à se concentrer sur la transformation de leur entreprise

Cogeco Services Réseaux a annoncé aujourd’hui le lancement d’une solution de TI et de communication (TIC) unique à l’appui des efforts des chefs des services informatiques qui sont appelés à simplifier l'infrastructure TI de leur entreprise et à créer de la valeur dans le cadre du processus de transformation organisationnelle. La nouvelle gamme de services intègre les services de TI gérés et les services de centre de données, d’informatique en nuage et de connectivité de Cogeco Services Réseaux.

Tandis que la consommarisation des TI prend de l’ampleur, de plus en plus d’entreprises souhaitent simplifier leur infrastructure TI et se doter de solutions novatrices. Mark Schrutt, directeur de l’équipe des Services de TI et Applications d’entreprise d’IDC, cabinet de recherche d’envergure mondiale, confirme cette tendance : «Les services de TI sont continuellement exposés aux pressions qui les amènent à innover et à créer de la valeur, tout en assurant la gestion sécuritaire des données de leur entreprise. La consommarisation des TI s’est traduite par un énorme afflux d’utilisateurs de solutions de TI clandestines (employés acquérant des solutions de TI qu’ils utilisent au travail à l’insu du service de TI de leur entreprise), et l’accès facilité aux solutions d’informatique en nuage a grandement contribué au développement de cette tendance. En optimisant l’infrastructure TI de leur entreprise et en tirant parti des solutions d’informatique en nuage, de centre de données, de TI gérées et de connectivité de classe entreprise, les chefs des services informatiques peuvent se concentrer davantage sur l’essentiel, mieux s’intégrer à leur entreprise et permettre à celle-ci de bénéficier d’une valeur ajoutée.»

Bien que l’emploi de solutions de TI clandestines et l’informatique en nuage ne soient pas nouveaux, ils sont de plus en plus répandus. Une étude réalisée par IDC1 révèle que, dans les entreprises, 25 % des achats de matériel et d’applications informatiques sont effectués à l’insu du service de TI et que 60 % des entreprises canadiennes croient que le recours à l’informatique en nuage est essentiel à leur réussite. Les chefs des services informatiques progressistes connaissent la valeur qui découle de l’adoption de ces nouveautés permettant de mieux répondre aux besoins de l’entreprise.

Le secteur des jeux en ligne, l’un des nombreux secteurs verticaux que sert Cogeco Services Réseaux, n’est pas étranger aux innovations créées sous l’impulsion des utilisateurs, ou favorisées par les joueurs, mais ce sont les éditeurs qui en permettent la mise en œuvre. Des modifications apportées ainsi chaque jour aux produits permettent d’en améliorer la version finale. Infinite Game Publishing, éditeur de jeux en ligne tels que MechWarrior et Sins of a Dark Age, a fait appel à Cogeco Services Réseaux quand est venu le moment d’optimiser son infrastructure TI. «Cogeco Services Réseaux nous a fourni une solution souple, évolutive et fiable intégrant des services de TI gérés, de connectivité et d’informatique en nuage, relate Kelly Zmak, président d’Infinite Game Publishing. Compte tenu de nos besoins et de l’évolution rapide de notre industrie, il nous fallait une solution unique permettant de tester et de lancer rapidement des jeux en ligne à l’aide d’une infrastructure TI unique, de la réalisation des tests bêta jusqu’au lancement. Cogeco Services Réseaux a mis au point une solution souple assortie d’un niveau de service élevé grâce à laquelle nous pouvons nous permettre de moins nous préoccuper de l’efficacité opérationnelle et de nous concentrer davantage sur la création d’expériences exceptionnelles pour nos clients.»

Les capacités de bout en bout de Cogeco Services Réseaux lui confèrent un avantage lorsqu’il s’agit de convaincre les entreprises qu’elle peut les aider à simplifier leur infrastructure TI et à réaliser des gains d’efficacité sur le plan opérationnel, tout en permettant à leur chef des services informatiques de se concentrer sur la création de valeur. La gamme de services unique de Cogeco Services Réseaux – qui repose sur des services de centre de données disponibles en tout temps, une connectivité réseau transparente et des services d’informatique en nuage, de stockage et de sauvegarde de données, et de reprise après sinistre évolutifs – est accessible au moyen d’une connexion unique.

«En fournissant des solutions uniques de classe entreprise, nous avons pu élargir l’étendue de nos services et aider ainsi nos clients à tirer une valeur maximale de notre savoir-faire et des innovations technologiques, affirme Virginia Brailey, vice-présidente, Gestion de produits et marketing à Cogeco Services Réseaux. Notre nouvelle gamme de services vise à aider les entreprises à simplifier leur infrastructure TI et à permettre à leur service de TI de moins s’occuper du soutien opérationnel, de façon à pouvoir se concentrer sur l’innovation.»

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...

Horan & Bird [H&B], Australia’s fifth-largest Solar Panel Installer, wanted to automate sensor data collection and monitoring from its solar panels and integrate the data with its business and marketing systems. After data was collected and structured, two major areas needed to be addressed: improving developer workflows and extending access to a b...
When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. But what about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...
Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...
As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, ...
High-performing enterprise Software Quality Assurance (SQA) teams validate systems that are ready for use - getting most actively involved as components integrate and form complete systems. These teams catch and report on defects, making sure the customer gets the best software possible. SQA teams have leveraged automation and virtualization to execute more thorough testing in less time - bringing Dev and Ops together, ensuring production readiness. Does the emergence of DevOps mean the end of E...
The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for companies without hyper-scale resources. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, David Cauthron, CTO and Founder of NIMBOXX, highlighted how a mid-sized manufacturer of global industrial equipment bridged the gap from virtualization to software-defined services, streamlining operations and costs while connect...
The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo – to be held June 3-5, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City – will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue o...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...
