The corporate end-user community provides vital cogs in the wheel of a healthy organization. Users include the call centers, the retail assistants, the service desks, the sales offices and the people who deal with order processing. Yet many of these users are often faced with outdated user interfaces (UIs), and struggle to cope with the levels of efficiency and throughput needed. Worse still, these old systems typically only run on a connected terminal - or ‘green screen’ - but more and more these days, users need web and mobile access. Micro Focus Rumba+ dramatically improves business efficiency by providing a better user experience. It can also now be accessed from a variety of devices.

Cooling tends to take a back seat to other concerns when server rooms and small to mid-size data centers are first built. As computing needs grow, increased heat production can compromise equipment performance and cause shutdowns. Haphazard data center expansion creates cooling inefficiencies that magnify these heat-related problems. Users may assume that they need to increase cooling capacity, but this is expensive and often unnecessary. In most cases, low-cost rack cooling best practices will solve heat-related problems. Best practices optimize airflow, increase efficiency, prevent downtime and reduce costs.
