ISG | December 30, 2022
The growing use of public clouds by enterprises is leading to an increase in cloud costs, prompting a rise in demand for FinOps platforms to monitor and control expenses, according to a report by technology research and advisory firm Information Services Group. This rise in demand for FinOps platforms reflects a change in the enterprise cloud space, where companies are now looking for solutions that give them more accurate cost insights and better control over how much they spend on the cloud.
FinOps platforms, which help clients manage their global IT assets and cut costs, are becoming an important part of the public cloud ecosystem as companies adopt multi-cloud strategies and take stock of how they use the cloud and how much it costs them. FinOps platforms are becoming more popular, which gives businesses a better view of their cloud costs and more control over how much they spend on the cloud.
"According to predictions, the finops market will expand by more than 30% in 2022, and future growth will probably be faster."
The report named Apptio (Cloudability), Flexera, HCLTech (MyXalytics), NetApp (Spot), and VMware (CloudHealth) as leaders in the Cloud FinOps Platforms quadrant. These platforms provide customers with a comprehensive view of their cloud consumption and costs, allowing them to gain better control over their spending and make decisions that drive operational efficiency and reduce costs. As spending on the cloud continues to grow, more and more businesses will use finops platforms to make sure they get the most out of their cloud investments.

Liquidware | February 22, 2023
On February 21, 2023, Liquidware has released ProfileUnity v6.8.5. It has features for managing Windows apps and user environments from one place. With this version, you can use its management console to deploy and assign a lot of new Windows apps. The traditional FlexApp from Liquidware, MSIX, MSIX App Attach, Microsoft App-V, and VMware ThinApp are all among these apps.
Administrators can also hide certain apps from certain users and make them available only to certain users based on filters that know about the user's context. ProfileUnity v6.8.5 also gives users a secure access framework that works with single sign-on (SSO), federation, and smart cards.
Steve Greenberg, President and Principal Architect of Thin Client Computing, a leading Liquidware partner, said, "This latest release of ProfileUnity brings with it significant benefits for our customers that work with Thin Client Computing for their digital workspaces." He also said, "Further centralization of user management and apps within the ProfileUnity console frees up admins' time to be proactive rather than reactive." He says with confidence, "When combined with Liquidware's FlexApp and Stratusphere UX solutions, they give Windows enterprises a complete digital workspace management suite."

Stratus Technologies | February 07, 2023
On February 6, 2023, Stratus Technologies, Inc. (Stratus), an SGH company and a pioneer in protected, simplified, and autonomous Edge Computing platforms announced that it will display its Edge Computing platforms and pre-validated control architectures, made with Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric, at the 27th annual ARC Industry Leadership Forum from February 6–9, in Orlando, Florida.
The subject of this year's conference is energy transition, driving sustainability and performance through digitalization. During the Oil & Gas Transformation session, Stratus and customer Streamline Innovations will present on sustainable gas treating solutions.
Stratus will showcase its Edge Computing platforms and solutions at booth #34, including:
Stratus ztC Edge Platform - the second-generation Stratus ztC Edge platform integrates in-built fault tolerance and application virtualization in an easy-to-install, rugged design for the edge.
Stratus Edge Computing Experience (ECX) - This immersive environment enables IT and OT users to explore a broad range of Edge Computing application cases in industrial automation, allowing users to extend edge automation and exploit essential data for insight using easy, secure, autonomous Edge Computing.
Edge Analytics - The IoT analytics software from Litmus on the Stratus Edge 110i and the second-gen Stratus ztC Edge 200i exhibits predictive maintenance, condition-based monitoring, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. The partnership shows a simple, secure, autonomous solution for deploying analytics for any MES, SCADA, or IoT software at edge locations in order to overcome network bandwidth, latency, and risk of downtime.
Stratus will also highlight the following to illustrate how pre-validated and tested architectures may reduce engineering time, enable quick deployment, and simplify OT and IT management:
PlantPAx® Solution-in-a-Box from Rockwell Automation - A jointly-tested process control architecture running on ztC Edge to facilitate the deployment of small to medium-sized distributed control systems (DCS) that need less than 5,000 I/Os at edge locations.
Schneider Electric EcoStruxure™ Micro Data Center with Stratus ftServer® Platform - Designed for edge environments, it combines virtualization, fault tolerance, physical protection and smart uninterrupted power. These pre-validated designs are ideal for Systems Integrators since they save 40% in field engineering work and 20% in time-to-deployment.
