  • How to baseline your physical IT infrastructure
    How to baseline your physical IT infrastructure
    David Cuthbertson Recorded: Jul 12 2018 45 mins
    Planning and managing changes to data centres and equipment rooms isn’t easy if you don’t what is there and how devices connect. This webinar look at how to avoid the unnecessary project delays and costs associated with repeated site surveys and multi-site auditing. Maintaining knowledge of the local physical infrastructure is vital for centralised planning, provisioning and operational management, but you need a baseline to start with. With this baseline you can maintain knowledge of local infrastructure through improved change processes, as well as simplifying and reducing workload on infrastructure teams. Undertaking a baseline project isn’t easy, but there are methods and practices we’ll be covering that reduce the pain and improve the accuracy of baseline audits.

    David will be covering;

    - Data centres
    - Equipment rooms
    - Networks
    - Servers
    - Data and power connectivity
  • [Ep.15] Ask the Expert: Managing Change in Cloud-Based Systems
    [Ep.15] Ask the Expert: Managing Change in Cloud-Based Systems
    David Cuthbertson, CEO, Square Mile Systems and Kelly Harris, Senior Content Manager, BrightTALK Recorded: May 24 2018 38 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert Series.

    Join David Cuthbertson, CEO of Square Mile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into cloud management. Many senior decision makers have negative feelings regarding the issues of technical teams and don't want to bring them to light - data security, change control, lock in to a supplier who overcharges, proper outage stats, etc.

    Just as there is more awareness of outsourcing contract nightmares, many of the same issues apply to cloud providers. Managing change in cloud-based systems is still a relatively new issue as most technical teams don't think about how cloud systems are managed and the potential risks posed by many suppliers without a viable business model.

    Audience members are encouraged to send questions to the expert which will be answered during the live session.

  • How To Document IT Infrastructure
    How To Document IT Infrastructure
    David Cuthbertson Recorded: Jul 6 2017 48 mins
    Many organisations would like more complete and accurate IT systems documentation, but cannot find a way around their current methods such as multiple isolated spreadsheets and diagrams. Our webinar will cover techniques to reduce workload and improve consistency for IT infrastructure technologies such as networks, servers, applications, data centres, cabling, etc. The larger the infrastructure the greater the benefits of our
  • Managing Connectivity With High Density Modular Cabling Systems
    Managing Connectivity With High Density Modular Cabling Systems
    David Cuthbertson Recorded: Jun 1 2017 44 mins
    Increasing connectivity densities and use of modular fibre components is great for flexible cabling provision, but presents extra challenges for those having to manage infrastructure connectivity. David’s overview of best practice methods will help avoid both low and high density “spaghetti” and unnecessary disruption in the data centres.

    How To Document Campus Infrastructure - Hospitals, Offices, Airports, etc.
    David Cuthbertson Recorded: Apr 26 2017 47 mins
    Multi-building and multi-site IT environments are not simple to document with both legacy and new technology co-existing for many years. Our webinar looks at documentation methods that make multi-building IT infrastructure easier to plan and manage.
  • Practical Steps to Data Centre Migration Planning and Execution
    Practical Steps to Data Centre Migration Planning and Execution
    Simon Allen, Mike Dorfler, David Cuthbertson, Recorded: Sep 28 2016 45 mins
    This webinar is being delivered in conjunction with the UKDCIG, PTS Consulting and Square Mile Systems.
    Migrating data centres or moving to co-location is complex and subject to cost overruns, especially where existing infrastructure documentation is of questionable quality. We'll show how the use of database driven toolsets can help automate the project processes and avoid many of the typical problems that organisations with overstretched teams encounter.
  • Improving Operations & Risk Management with Enterprise Systems & Infrastructure
    Improving Operations & Risk Management with Enterprise Systems & Infrastructure
    David Cuthbertson, CEO Square Mile Systems, CEO AssetGen Limited, & BICSI UK Committee Member Recorded: Aug 18 2016 49 mins
    When you have 1000s of servers shared by multiple applications it gets complex - so complex no individual can understand how it all works and no spreadsheet can cope with the scale and dependencies. Mapping technical and service dependencies between servers, applications, data, networks, batch processes and users also becomes more difficult as the infrastructure size increases – so David Cuthbertson will cover techniques that make the complex simpler to understand. He’ll cover how improved management methods and support systems reduce the disruption and risks to enterprise customers and users.
