Many countries have strict emission limits for nitrogen oxides (NOx) and so NOx control systems are widely used on coal-fired power plants. India has recently introduced NOx emission limits so pollution control technologies will need to be installed. This webinar will review available NOx controls for coal-fired units in general. With examples of recent developments, systems that could be successfully applied in Indian power plants are identified. The challenges facing Indian utilities are also considered. The new Indian standards have created opportunities for equipment manufacturers, as well as a need for global technology leaders to modify their products to meet local market requirements, particularly high ash content coal.
One of our clients operates with multiple entities under multiple contracts that govern how business is conducted. They were dealing with extended lead times manually reviewing contracts and handling exceptions. Infosys Nia ingested all contract agreements to create a knowledge model that captured rules, exceptions and resolutions. The model responded to incoming queries and resolved exceptions based on information captured from the labor contracts. A conversational interface provided natural language query into the knowledge models, helping the client reduce lead times, lower costs and improve efficiency.

Modern businesses are being transformed into digital businesses. To do so, IT is being re-imagined to span hybrid infrastructures; including multiple data centers, co-location facilities and cloud service providers. This hybrid approach has many benefits including cost savings, but can increase the overall difficulty in supporting such environments to deliver a predictable level of IT services. We’ll discuss one methodology designed to assess your current risk profile and spot vulnerabilities.
This webinar will cover the challenges of scaling up of liquid cooling technologies in the data centre space.
About the presenter:
The subject of sustainable and green data centres is very close to my heart. For many years I have been increasingly concerned with the ever increasing requirement for power that the information age requires and we built our business on explaining to organisations that they were wasting energy and overcooling server rooms as well as consulting on green IT issues from device to disposal.
The EURECA project will deliver a tool that public sector IT managers can use to benchmark their current actions and see what the current standards and latest concepts are and how to implement easy solutions to make a real difference. I have been lucky enough to see some state-of-the-art public sector data centres such as the University of St Andrews that have adopted the EU Code of Conduct for Data Centres and been awarded a GOLD CEEDA and how the management used the project to promote wider sustainability concepts to the rest of the university and beyond. At the other end of the scale there remains much work to be done in data centres/server rooms across the public sector to capitalise on the fast moving and sometimes daunting array of technologies and methodologies on offer.
Infosys Nia ingests source code, historical incident tickets, and other documentation to build a knowledge model of the source code with mapping across modules. Natural language processing, text analytics and machine learning techniques are applied to perform bug localization, root-cause and impact analysis, and test plan generation.

As the choices of technical computing methods and data center technologies continue to evolve, management processes are being forced to evolve faster as data is re-used across multiple hardware and software platforms types.
In addition, regulatory requirements are now influencing data center strategy to cover increased control and governance as well as reduced cost and computing delivery on demand. Managing change within data centers is becoming so complex, that baselining of existing environments and dependencies for change processes can be almost impossible without focused management involvement.
Join this session with David Cuthbertson, CEO of Square Mile Systems, Infrastructure Visualisation and Data Centre Management Specialist, as he looks at practical methods and approaches to simplify IT systems complexity making it easier to meet existing and new IT management challenges.
This is the story of why one enterprise chose HCI and how the hype stacked up in their real world.
‘Cloud’ is a marketing term used to groups many offerings things that differ quite a bit from each other. Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) is a little more specific than Cloud, but companies still find it has the same potential to be confusing and ambiguous. There are many different players in the market, each with their own view on why what they deliver is the real HCI.
Andrew Scott runs in house data centers for a large automotive engineering company. He and his team spent a fair amount of time working out the real benefits HCI brought and then, which of the many vendors should be shortlisted to test. They implemented HCI in 2017, this is some of what they learned along the way.
This webinar covers the complexity of data centre procurement and the possible routes to the procurement of data centres and data centre services. Running an innovation procurement process for energy efficient data centre products and services could be challenging if not equipped with all the necessary knowledge, templates, tools, etc.
This IDC Web Conference will feature data highlights from the inaugural IDC Worldwide Data Services for Hybrid Cloud Forecast. Every vertical industry is now seeing the impact of digital transformation (DX). In DX, data is core as every change and process relies on converting data into actionable insights. And the leading digital organizations are discovering that the cloud – in terms of its power to deliver agility and flexibility in data management and faster time to insights – is indispensable for achieving their DX business objectives.
IDC's Ritu Jyoti and Robert Westervelt will discuss the latest trends in hybrid/multicloud deployments, proliferation of application deployment models and data formats across hybrid IT, associated data management challenges, and how data services for hybrid cloud can help organizations gain a competitive edge and thrive in the DX era.
This webinar will review the supply chain costs of biomass cofiring.

Inevitably, the production of coal creates various waste streams, some of which contain enough residual coal to give them potential as sources of energy. Some types may be used directly or alternatively, reprocessed to recover their coal content. They can form low cost fuels that reduce the demand for fresh coal. Furthermore, their use helps minimise the amounts stored in dumps or settling ponds, reducing their unwanted environmental impacts.
This webinar will examine the types of wastes, the amounts generated, and their utilisation for the main coal-producing countries.
This session will look at the drivers, trends, impacts, and overall market for non-traditional robotics on the modern digitally connected business. The evolution of technology in general has helped to drive the evolution of robots for non-traditional business applications.
John Santagate, Research Director for Service Robotics at IDC, says “We are in a very interesting place relative to robotics. There has been a convergence of technology maturity and market acceptance that is helping to drive new robotic applications in business areas where robots have not typically been deployed”. Join us as we dig into what is driving the market, why this time it's different, and how the market will shake out over the coming several years.
