A Zero-Latency Enterprise (ZLE) is any strategy that exploits the immediate exchange of information across technical and organizational boundaries to achieve business benefit. For example, technical boundaries exist between various operating systems, database management systems and programming languages. “Immediate” implies being fast enough to bring all of the business benefits that simultaneous knowledge can potentially achieve.
The keyword “Immediate” is relates to the word “latency”. Latency is delay in doing something, or the time between a cause and it’s impact. For example, if a client submits a request at 11:00:00 AM and the system that creates your picklist doesn’t update with the new request until 2:59:30PM that day, you have tremendous latency in your system.
In an Enterprise setting things aren’t exactly so dramatic and not all latency is awful but in most situations you want information to disseminate rapidly throughout the organization so that it’s available where and when it’s needed to support operational excellence and superior decision making. A Zero-Latency Enterprise (ZLE) then, is an enterprise in which the Information Technology infrastructure and applications are wired so that information is synchronized across applications, processed and analyzed, and insights are made available to decision makers, in near real-time, with the minimum possible latency.
E-SPIN being actively involved in assisting enterprise and government agencies customers in supply and maintaining infrastructure monitoring for whether respective key component and system availability, including for whether any component / system is having latency, early warning for the downtime proactively to respective system stakeholders to take proactive action. Feel free to contact E-SPIN any project and operation requirement.
