  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.

    •Understand the trends driving mobility and behavior changes in the work place, with Melanie Turek, VP of Research for Enterprise Communication & Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan.
    •Get the real story from a business that has addressed their mobility needs first hand from Adam Fishman, director of growth and operations for Lyft, a community ride-sharing service.
    •Hear how a cloud communications solution is addressing several challenges businesses face in the new work world from Nisha Ahluwalia, VP of product marketing at RingCentral.

In this webinar, we will review the massive changes in the wireless landscape that have made this viable in the past 3 months, the solutions that make it possible and what implications this has for the modern BYOD organization.
  • You may not know much about it, but Hadoop is coming in a big way. The list of services you provide and support grows larger by the day and very soon Hadoop related technologies will likely play a critical role in many of those services. Much of the processing that happens in Hadoop is batch related but the built in tools for managing that batch is inferior and will cause delays when trying to deploy the related applications and services. Join us to learn:

    •What Hadoop is and what it is used for
    •The type of processing performed in Hadoop environments
    •How to deliver better Hadoop workload related services

  • Lee Smith (Dee Smith & Associates) and David Cuthbertson (SMS) will cover their approach and methods of assessing existing data centre facilities and management processes. Rapid changes in both IT and data centre technologies often mean that facilities and management techniques fail to evolve fast enough, with the data centre potentially being the weak link in the delivery chain of all IT services. Achieving a baseline through an assessment is critical for any improvement or transformation activity - but is not so easy to do in practice.

  • Dell Active Infrastructure & VDI Explained Webinar Recorded: Feb 21 2013 59 mins
    The Dell difference

    IT organizations evaluating converged infrastructure
    solutions today are stuck choosing from undesirable
    closed, complex, incomplete and/or expensive options.
    Dell fills a gap in the market for advanced data center
    infrastructure platforms that are simple, flexible and
    comprehensive.

    Dell’s framework is compatible with existing data center
    architectures while allowing flexibility for the future, and
    doesn’t lock our customers into a proprietary model like
    some offerings. Some competitive solutions are built to
    operate in a single way, may not support customer needs
    over time and require complex integration with existing
    management offerings.

    VDI is a significant feature of the Dell Active Infrastructure. VDI and VDS (Virtualization Desktop Services) will be EXPLAINED! Join us for this informative WEBINAR.

  • Cutting IT Costs Have Never Been Easier Recorded: Nov 29 2011 54 mins
    The average enterprise uses 70% of its IT budget to maintain its physical infrastructure. As the industry's leading virtualization software, VMware vSphere™ can cut overall IT costs by up to 70%—allowing more resources to be allocated toward innovation and improving business operations.

    In addition to having a low total cost of ownership, VMware vSphere also simplifies operations, delivers improved performance and ensures high availability of services. VMware is fundamentally changing how enterprises manage, deploy and deliver IT.

    Webinar Details:

    Maximize your current resources
    Consolidating your servers allows you to combine infrastructure resources and break the traditional model of only having one application per server.

    Increase availability of hardware and applications
    Securely back up and migrate entire virtual environments without interruptions in service. This improves business continuity by eliminating planned downtime and immediately recovering from unplanned issues.


    Improve operational flexibility and responsiveness
    Dynamically scale to respond to unpredictable market changes and user demands. The ability to provision servers faster allows administrators to spend more time focusing on business needs.

    Take the first step on the path to cloud computing
    Virtualizing your infrastructure is the beginning of the journey to the cloud. Cloud computing provides additional cost savings and results in a zero-touch infrastructure with full automation across the board.
  • RealCloud Ready Assessment Survey Benchmarking Results Recorded: Nov 10 2011 44 mins
    ATTEND ALL 8 - 30 MINUTE WEBINARS AND YOU COULD WIN $1000.00

    RealCloud defines a core set of capabilities that your organization needs to take advantage of cloud. By understanding these capabilities and your current environment you can define a rational cloud strategy.

    - RealCloud creates a map for implementing cloud
    - Allows you to focus on the right projects
    - Thinks beyond just technology to people and process to enable the organization

    RealCloud progresses through fives stages. Traditional IT begins the journey and builds toward cloud as virtualization is implemented. A stage approach starts with the reality of today and moves toward cloud.

    Why the 5 stages are important:
    Change does not happen overnight. A progressive approach to change is manageable and enables key investments over time.

    - Foundations in today’s realities allow for better planning of next steps
    - Roadmap to the future allows for better planning of current projects
    - Maturity builds over time
