All modern operations are digitalised in some way
Today, all operations are digitalised in some way or another, both business processes and various company-wide functions. This allows us to constantly work from different locations and always stay connected. Not least in the office, where we take for granted that we can move from different meetings, common areas and back to the desk without losing contact with the network and important systems.
Access to data is a crucial factor
Access to data is a crucial factor in all areas of life today, for companies, authorities and public services. There is simply no room for disruptions in data traffic. At the same time, there is a wealth of different services, applications and systems which control how we access data, as well as a variety of delivery models whereby data is stored, whether these are cloud services or individually tailored IT infrastructures. Regardless, data will always need to be distributed from and stored in a physical location, today and in the future, and this is where the data center comes in. Like the heart in the circulatory system, the data center is the digital heart in every company or agency network.
Site Assessment is a service performed by Coromatic to connect the present infrastructure to business strategy.

Increase the efficiency of your datacenter
Coromatic has put together a program for quality control and operation of data centers and other business-critical infrastructure. The program has been donated to Open Compute Project (OCP) and is free to use to increase the quality of operations in mission critical facilities.
The objective of this paper is to disseminate the program to increase the efficiency of operations and to codify effective processes and routines.
OCP offers a platform for openly sharing intellectual property and encourage the IT-industry to evolve, much like open projects in the software industry. The purpose of this whitepaper is to make Coromatics services known while encouraging the inclusion of the OCP program in all development projects. If you are unfamiliar with Coromatic Critical Facilities Operations (CFOPS) Framework, it's time to gain insight.

In recent years, the data center sector has investigated varying solutions for lowering environmental impact. Initially, stakeholders talked about green IT, i.e., electricity that supplied the centers should be green in the sense that energy came from renewable sources such as solar, wind, or water. Now, energy generation and measurement methods are far more sophisticated, because all stakeholders increasingly demand climate-smart solutions in every process phase.
