A WORD FROM THE OWNER: DALE KLEIN
Executive Vision of Building Controls
Being a fan of technology and the Vikings has taught me patience.  As most kids growing up in Minnesota, I was a loyal Vikings fan who dreamed of seeing them win the Super Bowl.  I can still recall my frustration when my dad would say, rather pessimistically, that the Vikings were not going to win the Super Bowl any time soon. I suppose he was jaded from four previous unsuccessful attempts. 
Often times I think the same applies to the latest technology.  Unquestionably there is real reason for excitement, but typically the initial outcomes fall well short of the heightened expectations.  Yet over an extended period of time and full maturation process, the technology does deliver on many of those promises. 
I enjoy following new technologies; but like following the Vikings, caution and patience is required. Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the new technologies to offer many exciting promises.  With the continued maturation of devices and middleware software, eventually I see a future of people wearing sensor technologies that communicate with a myriad of building sensors to produce a superior user experience.   We will be able to harvest and analyze an enormous amount of machine and sensor data to dynamically provision the right environment for users in a very efficient manner.

FROM THE DESK OF: AARON GRENZ
UPS Efficiency: Like Buying New Tires?

UPS for a data center is a lot like tires on your vehicle: nobody really likes to spend money on either, but both are essential for
 any operation and cause significant disruption (and frustration) when either fail to perform as needed. 
 
If you're like most people, you probably dread going through the expense for new tires every few years, and often there is seemingly little to differentiate one tire from another.  But what if tires DID offer a significant improvement in performance, without an impact on overall reliability?  (For example, new airless tires are starting to commercialize and hit the market, and appear to offer superior performance and efficiencies.)
