Emerson (NYSE: EMR), based in St. Louis, Missouri, is a global leader in bringing technology and engineering together to provide innovative solutions for customers in industrial, commercial, and consumer markets around the world. The company is comprised of five business segments: Process Management, Industrial Automation, Network Power, Climate Technologies, and Commercial & Residential Solutions. Sales in fiscal 2012 were $24.4 billion. Emerson Network Power delivers software, hardware and services that maximize availability, capacity and efficiency for data centers, healthcare, and industrial facilities. A trusted industry leader in smart infrastructure technologies, Emerson Network Power provides innovative data center infrastructure management solutions that bridge the gap between IT and facility management and deliver efficiency and uncompromised availability regardless of capacity demands. Emerson Network Power’s acquisition of Avocent a few years back led to significant growth of the company’s product portfolio and customer base. The acquisition also provided a unique challenge for Emerson, as many of the newly acquired products were built on open source software and were difficult to develop, deploy and manage. Another big issue was integrating all these point-solution products into an integrated suite. In addition, there were scalability and performance concerns. Oracle Fusion Middleware provided Emerson with a more reliable, scalable and integrated infrastructure.
As the data center infrastructure management (DCIM) market matures over the next few years, Emerson believes that customers will need a lot more functionality than they currently realize. Moving forward, customers will need the ability to analyze data, create insights and develop predictive capabilities across the entire infrastructure in real-time. A single, open platform that incorporates hardware and software to meet current and future customer needs in an effective and efficient manner was a major requirement. The most critical customer needs are data scalability, availability and high performance in processing of the real-time data. The Trellis platform represents a groundbreaking DCIM innovation from Emerson Network Power – one that mitigates IT risk while increasing operational efficiency. Come join Emerson in this session to hear about how this customer leverages Oracle technologies such as Coherence, ADF, CEP, EJB and TopLink and how the Oracle Coherence solution is implemented to satisfy the scalability and high performance of real-time data processing.
