Higher Education Institute

Higher education has its risk and rewards.   Students are challenged with financial risk and are rewarded with graduation and the pride of a great future.   At a higher education institution, Compulink found the same challenging situation.

Our client outgrew their capacity to maintain a safe and uninterruptible power supply which jeopardized the future of the entire data center.  Compulink was asked as a valued supplier to assess the situation and recommend a total solution including design, installation, testing and validation.

Leaving no stone unturned, we conducted four site visits to plan and coordinate the installation.

Our starting point was to conduct four onsite meetings with all stakeholders, including Client Management, Manufacture reps, School Engineers and Electricians.  The first meeting Compulink coordinated was for discovery, in which all parties were introduced to the existing system environment, its flaws, limitations and risk areas.  Based on our Discovery session, Our second onsite meeting focused on the design of the new electrical system, where we detailed all requirements necessary to take the school’s data center to a safer and greater capacity electrical environment.  Our third onsite meeting validated the Design and planned in detail the implementation and execution of the new system upgrade.  The fourth and critically important onsite meeting was to prep all electrical work, on multiple floors, and ensure that installation would be safe and timely.

Installation was not without its obstacles and challenges.  The equipment delivered was over 3 thousand pounds and required special flooring and moving equipment to put it all in place.  The school’s electric system had to be completely closed down end of day Friday with the requirement to be up and running in 24 hours.   The value of the preparation meetings did pay off.  The Compulink engineers, under the auspices of the school’s electrician, installed the new UPS flawlessly, tested the system to the full satisfaction of the client and completed the installation safely in less than 24 hours.

Having overcome the risk associated with a major electrical system upgrade, the school was rewarded with the security of its future Infrastructure environment.   The school is now able to safely expand its infrastructure with the knowledge that the power supply had sufficient capacity for growth and secondary power sources were safe and dependable.

Compulink managed the risk associated with the project and was rewarded with the praise and thanks of our client and more importantly the accomplishment of delivering absolute quality in the performance of our services.

Real Time Data Visualization its Coming

Whether you know anything or not about big data, soon companies will use real time data visualization to provide more personalized content . What does that mean? When you shop on Amazon, they will be able to predict what thing you will buy next as soon as you purchase one thing. They will use all the data you give them such as the products you browse, the brands, the prices you purchase at, and the delivery options you choose. This will all be compiled in real-time and they will be better able to make more personal purchasing suggestions for you. This trend will continue to grow as enterprises compete to get you personalized products or content.

So as you can see data and real time analytics are getting more and more important. That is because consumers are changing the way the purchase products, use services, and look for content. The internet gives to person the ability to choose what they want. So enterprises are trying to keep up with the consumer. However; this is still in its infancy.

You need to build the appropriate infrastructure to handle all that incoming data. Then you have to create the data sets you want to analyse and create data streams for them. It is a lot of work, but the payoff could be enormous.

We have to wait and see, and we have to see how the market reacts to this. Having a company like Amazon push products you are most likely to by in your face all the time, maybe be good, or it may not. Think of it in this way, when you pick up a newspaper the headlines are determined by an editor. When you go to the paper’s website (if you subscribe) the headlines are based on your interest.  Real time data visualization and analysis will make that possible.
