Shaspa 3D Operations Centers
The Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Centers represent the next level of innovation and green technology offered by the Shaspa solution. The Virtual Operations Center renders the many dimensions of the facilities and operations management into an immersive 3D virtual world. The 3D environment is customized according to unique requirements, and can be delivered as classic command centers, control rooms, datacenters, or hybrid custom solutions. The versatile virtual world environment ensures a platform for innovation, scalability, performance, and growth as the business value it brings is expanded to other areas.
Enables more efficient control and representation of complex environments
The Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Center, a class of applications that fuse together data from enterprise business systems, renders the many dimensions of the facilities and operations management into an immersive 3D virtual world. The integrated and consolidated view of the facilities, operations, and datacenter provides enhanced situational awareness of multiple facets of the enterprise, leading to improved operational efficiencies and new insights into the business. This includes rendering information about building automation and energy management systems with data from the Shaspa Virtual World Communications Interface as well as datacenter IT systems.
The Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Center is customizable and versatile, both in the data it receives and the layout and function of the datacenter. This customization is useful when managing live systems, and can also be used to perform simulations for planning such as space, thermal, power, or other planning needs. The Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Center also extends the business value of previous investments, by leveraging and extending existing systems management and monitoring infrastructure. This includes facilities automation and information systems, datacenters, command center information systems, and many other systems that provide industry standard programming interfaces.

extends the business value of previous investments
Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Centers organize and present information from these systems in familiar and easy to understand ways. For example, the Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Center application can show the consolidated view of 2 or more datacenters and their assets, in a single composite 3D view. Additionally, the 3D environment can render information from the facilities such as HVAC and power. Combining this capability with the Green Technology in the IT equipment, this powerful new tool shows an at a glance state of the carbon and physical footprint. This allows managers to see and understand the collective set of enterprise resources and their individual states, for multiple distributed operations locations and types.
Since the Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Centers are multi-user virtual world applications, complete with in-world 3D messaging, multiple users can have a shared 3D experience and carry on active discussions in-world. This shared experience allows technical, business, and even partner personnel, to collaborate on elements of the enterprise in real-time. These expert collaborators can be located across the world, yet still meet ‘locally’ in the virtual world to collaborate, decreasing time to resolution, increasing planning effectiveness, and reduced travel costs. The key beneﬁt of the virtual world collaborative capability and shared immersive experience is providing enhanced overall communications methods and cycle time for any business scenario.
The Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Centers leverages a state of the art 3D virtual world infrastructure to create the virtual world environment. The server component manages the virtual world, and users log in with clients and are brought into the virtual world. Once logged onto the Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Centers server, they can interact with other users, gadgets, and the machinery in the command center. The Shaspa 3D Virtual Operations Centers is driven by the data from a virtual world integration middleware component that is part of the overall solution.
