For many small to medium size companies, finding the time to proactively manage employee performance is difficult. The emphasis is more often on increasing revenues and achieving stability, especially in the early days. However, as businesses grow, the need for improving staff engagement, productivity and loyalty becomes increasingly important.

EHS is also intrinsically related to other enterprise performance areas, including energy, assets, quality, operations, and quality management.
Between the rise of mobile devices, Big Data, the Internet of Things, social media, and sentiment analysis, there’s a new EHS paradigm at hand, and progressive manufacturers need to adapt and adopt the right technological tools in order to compete and outperform effectively.

Open Compute has had a significant impact on the thinking about data center design. Until now, the focus has been on systems at the rack level, leaving unanswered questions about the power infrastructure upstream of the rack. In this paper, we address critical questions about the implications of Open Compute on the upstream power infrastructure, including redundancy, availability, and flexibility. We introduce simplified reference designs that support OCP and provide a capital cost analysis to compare traditional and OCP-based designs. We also present an online TradeOff Tool that allows data center decision makers to better understand the cost differences and cost drivers to various architectures.
