“The ADVA ALM is helping us ensure excellent network availability while also reducing maintenance effort and expense. It gives our repair teams the power to remotely measure attenuation and quickly locate any degradation in our fiber plant. They can then take action straightaway to resolve problems,” said Stefan Kenneweg, consultant at Westfalen Weser Netz. “Combining the ADVA ALM assurance solution with our cableScout® management software is like turning on the lights right across our network. Now there are no more blind spots. That means no more wasted hours on false alarms and no nasty surprises for our customers.”
The ADVA ALM is now delivering passive, in-service monitoring of Westfalen Weser Netz’s fiber links. The simple, plug-and-play device offers several key advantages for utility network assurance. Its fanless operation and compact, low-energy design reduce opex and environmental impact. It’s also a highly robust solution ready to be installed in almost any location. Built on standardized, open management interfaces, the ADVA ALM is fully interoperable with Westfalen Weser Netz’s existing cableScout® software. This provides a geographic information system (GIS) to quickly and easily locate failures.
“Our ALM fiber monitoring platform is already bringing major benefits to Westfalen Weser Netz and its customers, helping the company reduce truck rolls and maximize resource efficiency. There really is no technology that has this much impact with such little cost and effort,” commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, SVP of sales, EMEA at ADVA. “When it comes to providing homes and businesses with safe, efficient and sustainable electricity, gas and water, the reliability of the data transport network is crucial. Now that Westfalen Weser Netz has total visibility and control of its fiber infrastructure, it can avoid outages and introduce new services with confidence.”
“Our cableScout® platform combined with the ADVA ALM solution for in-service monitoring provides Westfalen Weser Netz with continual access to a detailed layout of its network. Its team now has comprehensive understanding of the complete fiber architecture, enabling efficient end-to-end planning, management and troubleshooting,” said Ralph Kosztovits, managing partner at JO Software Engineering GmbH. “ADVA is a company that shares our commitment to sustainable growth and creating new opportunities through innovation.

AI/ML Capabilities Fall Short of Executive Expectations, According to a New Global Study by SoftServe23.3.2023 12:05:00 CET | Press release
New data released today by SoftServe indicates a dramatically different understanding of the value of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) among executives at software and digital native companies. Interest in AI/ML has been heightened with the recent release of tools such as ChatGPT and the rollout of AI-powered Microsoft Bing. However, SoftServe's survey of nearly 600 IT leaders across nine countries tells a story of significant eagerness for AI/ML, but a great disappointment with it. While 56% say leadership should consider AI/ML an urgent priority to drive business results, 52% say it should be a priority to retain and appeal to skilled talent. Conversely, 72% of IT leaders say their executive team does not fully understand the technical capabilities of AI/ML and its potential for business success. Furthermore, of those surveyed, 42% say their leadership is not treating AI/ML as urgently as it should be — to the point where this vital investment is falling down the

REPLY: "Everything can become a digital asset" Is the Paradigm Resulting From Reply's ‘Digital Assets Trends’ Research23.3.2023 09:00:00 CET | Press release
The digital asset market is growing exponentially. Thanks to blockchain technology and the new generation of operators using tokenization platforms, it is possible to turn everything that can be digitally archived into a digital asset, with recognised value and established ownership. This is what emerges from Reply's new ‘Digital Assets Trends’ research, based on the Reply SONAR platform. By analysing industry studies, scientific articles, patents, documents, and B2B content published in the last year, and integrating concrete experiences from Reply's clients, the study examines the main trends related to digital assets. Tokenization is the first step to bringing real-world assets and financial instruments onto the blockchain, representing an opportunity especially for those of an illiquid nature (e.g., high-value art, public infrastructure, private equity). The main advantages of tokens include the construction of a peer-to-peer network without intermediaries that also serves as a dec
European Mainframes Are Getting a Makeover23.3.2023 09:00:00 CET | Press release
As business returns to normal after recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, enterprises in Europe are seeking innovative, cost-effective ways to combine mainframe dependability with the flexibility of the cloud, according to a new research report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm. The 2023 ISG Provider Lens™ Mainframes — Services and Solutions report for Europe finds that an increased focus on updated IT infrastructure and digital transformation has led to a corresponding acceleration in the mainframe modernization services market. Although many companies still depend on them for reliability, availability and security, mainframes can be an albatross when it comes to innovation, the report says. Many European enterprises find they are unable to respond rapidly to the deployment of new or updated products. Enterprises that are still running mainframes recognize the need to update their le
