- 基础设施即服务 (IaaS) - 云数据库
该公司依赖于经验丰富的计费代理、客户经理和行政专家的专业知识，他们的主要工具是一个基于 Microsoft Access、Exchange 电子邮件的巨大客户数据库，以及通过传真或普通邮件发送的纸质发票的不合时宜但有效的使用。在 Irene 明确表示，如果 Diesel Direct 总公司停电，该流程一直有效，将无法每天快速发送大量发票。如果没有这一点，他们的现金流状况将很快受到很大影响。他们的客户（配送公司的车队经理）很快了解 Diesel Direct 如何通过让他们以每加仑燃料多出几美分来换取让他们自己的人员处理加油、维护和报告的 FTE 成本以及成本在他们这样做的时候让卡车离开道路。 Diesel Direct 的服务允许他们跳过大部分内容。该模型不需要大量技术，但如果 Diesel Direct 的最小 IT 基础设施长时间处于离线状态，那么 Diesel Direct 将无法完成任何工作。
去年 8 月飓风艾琳袭击马萨诸塞州东部时，道路上满是断树和倒塌的电线，导致许多人停电一个多星期。当卡车运输和建筑企业 Diesel Direct 受此影响时
Diesel Direct 聘请了 Virtustream，因为它需要的三个类别（私有云、虚拟私有云和公共云）中的每一个都有可用的替代方案。 Diesel Direct 聘请 Virtustream 托管其数据和略微升级的软件版本，以便员工可以在同一个办公室使用他们一直拥有的相同界面和工作流程工作。唯一的区别是数据和应用程序都位于华盛顿特区以外的数据中心，并复制到另一个数据中心。从运营 IT 的角度来看，与 Virtustream 签约的最大好处是 Virtustream 允许其客户快速、可重复地更改容量。 Diesel Direct 的业务是“突飞猛进”的——一天到一天翻一番或三倍，随着发票的流动而变化。 Virtustream 的服务合同允许 Diesel Direct 设置一个相对较高的平均基线，然后根据需要随时更改其最高容量需求限制——如果这对客户有效，则可以每天更改。添加容量就像更改配置屏幕一样简单；当尖峰消失时减少容量也是如此。

Airport SCADA Systems Improve Service Levels
Modern airports are one of the busiest environments on Earth and rely on process automation equipment to ensure service operators achieve their KPIs. Increasingly airport SCADA systems are being used to control all aspects of the operation and associated facilities. This is because unplanned system downtime can cost dearly, both in terms of reduced revenues and the associated loss of customer satisfaction due to inevitable travel inconvenience and disruption.
IoT-based Fleet Intelligence Innovation
Speed to market is precious for DRVR, a rapidly growing start-up company. With a business model dependent on reliable mobile data, managers were spending their lives trying to negotiate data roaming deals with mobile network operators in different countries. And, even then, service quality was a constant concern.
Digitize Railway with Deutsche Bahn
To reduce maintenance costs and delay-causing failures for Deutsche Bahn. They need manual measurements by a position measurement system based on custom-made MEMS sensor clusters, which allow autonomous and continuous monitoring with wireless data transmission and long battery. They were looking for data pre-processing solution in the sensor and machine learning algorithms in the cloud so as to detect critical wear.
Cold Chain Transportation and Refrigerated Fleet Management System
1) Create a digital connected transportation solution to retrofit cold chain trailers with real-time tracking and controls. 2) Prevent multi-million dollar losses due to theft or spoilage. 3) Deliver a digital chain-of-custody solution for door to door load monitoring and security. 4) Provide a trusted multi-fleet solution in a single application with granular data and access controls.
Vehicle Fleet Analytics
Organizations frequently implement a maintenance strategy for their fleets of vehicles using a combination of time and usage based maintenance schedules. While effective as a whole, time and usage based schedules do not take into account driving patterns, environmental factors, and sensors currently deployed within the vehicle measuring crank voltage, ignition voltage, and acceleration, all of which have a significant influence on the overall health of the vehicle.In a typical fleet, a large percentage of road calls are related to electrical failure, with battery failure being a common cause. Battery failures result in unmet service agreement levels and costly re-adjustment of scheduled to provide replacement vehicles. To reduce the impact of unplanned maintenance, the transportation logistics company was interested in a trial of C3 Vehicle Fleet Analytics.
3M Gains Real-Time Insight with Cloud Solution
The company has a long track record of innovative technology solutions. For example, 3M helps its customers optimize parking operations by automating fee collection and other processes. To improve support for this rapidly expanding segment, 3M needed to automate its own data collection and reporting. The company had recently purchased the assets of parking, tolling, and automatic license plate reader businesses, and required better insight into these acquisitions. Chad Reed, Global Business Manager for 3M Parking Systems, says, “With thousands of installations across the world, we couldn’t keep track of our software and hardware deployments, which made it difficult to understand our market penetration.” 3M wanted a tracking application that sales staff could use to get real-time information about the type and location of 3M products in parking lots and garages. So that it could be used on-site with potential customers, the solution would have to provide access to data anytime, anywhere, and from an array of mobile devices. Jason Fox, Mobile Application Architect at 3M, upped the ante by volunteering to deliver the new app in one weekend. For Fox and his team, these requirements meant turning to the cloud instead of an on-premises datacenter. “My first thought was to go directly to the cloud because we needed to provide access not only to our salespeople, but to resellers who didn’t have access to our internal network,” says Fox. “The cloud just seemed like a logical choice.”
