IT @ Intel – Enterprise Computing

Recently Intel Malaysia held a conference to share some key insights regarding their use of IT in the Enterprise to address key business challenges.

The topics which came under discussion were:

1. How Intel Is Managing IT Through A Downturn

2. Social Computing & Sustainability

Managing IT through a downturn took a look at how to drive business productivity, the potential of solid-state drives (SSDs) to replace hard disk drives (HDDs) in the enterprise, server and data center optimization, driving employee efficiencies and continuing IT efficiencies. I will be discussing more of this in my subsequent posts.

Intel IT is implementing an enterprise-wide social computing platform that combines professional networking tools with social media such as wikis and blogs, and integrates
with existing enterprise software. Our goal is to transform collaboration across Intel, addressing top business challenges such as helping employees to find relevant information and expertise more quickly, breaking down silos; attracting and retaining new employees;
and capturing the tacit knowledge of mature employees.

On Social Computing, Intel IT is implementing an enterprise-wide social computing platform that combines professional networking tools with social media such as wikis and blogs, and integrate with existing enterprise software. The goal is to transform collaboration across Intel, addressing top business challenges such as helping employees to find relevant information and expertise more quickly, breaking down silos; attracting and retaining new employees and capturing the tacit knowledge of mature employees.

Under Sustainability, Intel centered the discussion around the Data Centers and chose topics such as Air-Flow Management and Optimization, Economizers, Rack Level Cooling, High Ambient Temp Operation, Power Efficient Systems, dc Power Distribution (something which is very new and upcoming in the DC world),  Application Productivity Link, Server Power Management, Containerization (CC Systems Integration) as well as the design engineering strategy.

This is a topic which is near my heart, so expect a lot of stuff on sustainability & social computing soon. Stay posted.
