Communications networks play a vital role in transmission and distribution grid operations. But this role is evolving as power utilities begin to migrate legacy services and embrace smart grid applications. To succeed in the future, utilities will need reliable, secure, and cost-effective communications solutions that give them greater control over grid operations and automation.

This paper examines key challenges that are driving power utilities to modernize the communications infrastructure that supports their grids. It explains how utility communications requirements are changing and why utilities should re-examine the cost of their existing solutions compared to modern solutions and determine which best addresses their current and future needs.


As an HR person, you know how important exceptional recruiting is – when it’s good, it can make an organization; when it’s bad, it can break it. As the recruiting pro at your employer, you know how easy it is for the process to get out of whack.

It sounds easy: a job opens up, you write an ad, post it, evaluate a manageable amount of applicants and presto-change-o you have a spot-on new employee.

But the reality is a lot more complicated.

  • The open position might need a different skill set than it did before.
  • Job ads need to highlight company culture.
  • There are so many places to post jobs it’s hard to know where your candidates are.
  • It’s time-consuming to post to multiple channels.
  • Too many applications mean entire work weeks dedicated to sorting, reporting and staying compliant with federal guidelines.
  • Too few applicants mean an extended search and possibly poor candidates.
  • Applicant evaluation is tricky when you’re not the direct report.

Recruiting can be simple, efficient and a robust way to build a high-quality workforce. Here are secrets from the trade — five ways to improve your process and get the best team members.



This whitepaper from the SANS Institute focuses on the growing use and benefits derived from information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) convergence which includes more effective management and operation of contemporary control systems. IT/OT convergence carries unique challenges that make managing and securing an industrial control system (ICS) more difficult. This is due to greater technical complexity, expanded risks and new threats to more than just business operations. This paper explores the issues that arise with the blending of IT and OT into combined cyber-physical systems where risks must be identifed and managed.

Download this report to get answers to these questions:

  • Why are digital asset inventories critical for IT/OT security risk management?
  • How does knowledge about risks and vulnerabilities to IT/OT systems lead to better risk management?
  • Can applying even a few of Center for Internet Security (CIS) Controls make a marked difference in the security posture of today’s control systems?


Advances in digital technology, and the falling prices thereof, are now offering miners and metal producers significant advantages when it comes to even the oldest production processes and the longest standing production challenges.

More affordable and, crucially, smaller sensing equipment allows producers to retro-fit older equipment with the new sensing hardware, while more advanced software networks with total connectivity between various systems allows one to leverage existing automation and control systems to offer new ways of approaching asset lifecycle and maintenance, productivity, and energy optimisation.

Read the full whitepaper to learn:

  • How metal companies can share analytical data with customers and suppliers and save up to 17% in production costs
  • The advantages gained from implementing a condition-based maintenance strategy
  • How digital technologies are responsible for 11-15% in efficiency improvements of metal companies


Big data fabric, an emerging platform, accelerates insights by automating ingestion, curation, discovery, preparation, and integration from data silos. Forrester identified the 15 most significant big data fabric vendors — Cambridge Semantics, Cloudera, Denodo Technologies, Hitachi Vantara, Hortonworks, IBM, Informatica, Oracle, Paxata, Podium Data, SAP, Syncsort, Talend, TIBCO Software, and Trifacta — and researched, analyzed, and scored them against 26 criteria. This report shows how each vendor measures up and helps EA pros make the right choice.
