  • Should the modern enterprise build, buy or configure their IT systems? Aug 12 2015 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Stephen O'Donnell, CEO, CTO, Tech Analyst and Author
    The CIO is faced with reconciling the, apparently, irreconcilable. How does he build a cost effective technology platform that provides business agility, and manages risk?

    In this session, Steve O’Donnell explains the critical success factors in achieving that desired outcome, the considered compromises, the strategies and tactical approaches that the CIO will need to adopt to deliver business benefits and keep his stakeholders onside. He will look at the different types of application and how they need to be managed and hosted. Where do we build, where do we buy and where is configuration the right answer? How do we choose between in-house infrastructure, managed cloud services and engineered systems?

    Join Stephen for a structured approach to providing a cohesive strategy for IT investment that makes sense, and optimises business outcomes whilst being simple enough to gain business stakeholder buy in and approval.
  • Transforming Enterprise IT – What do you need to consider? Aug 12 2015 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Ian Wales, Cloud, Automation and Application Delivery Management
    Running Enterprise IT is probably more complicated now than it has ever been. Many organisations are embarking on transformation projects to take advantage of the modern hybrid world. But with all that complexity how do you make sure your transformation is a success? Join HP to take a look at some of the areas you need to be considering when transforming your environment to achieve the better service levels and efficiencies you are striving for. We’ll talk about everything from discovering interdependencies through automation and changing the way you manage your new environment.
  • Does Your Organisation Really Know Its True or Total IT Cost Aug 12 2015 9:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Jerry Wertelecky, CPA, Fellow HKloD & Managing Director
    IT spend has become one of the largest budget line items in companies today. IT organizations worldwide spent over $4 trillion dollars in 2013 alone. Despite the growth in IT spend, many IT organizations do not have the capability to clearly and easily articulate where that spend is going, how it correlates to the services they are delivering or what value the business is realizing from the services.

    In order to stay competitive, businesses are seeking ways to optimize and align future IT investment decisions with the strategic direction of the company. By making all of the costs of running IT transparent, IT can change the way business units consume IT resources, drive down total enterprise IT costs and focus on IT spending that delivers real business value.

    Join Jerry Wertelecky as he discusses:

    • Facilitate collaboration between IT and Finance to increase visibility into the costs, utilization and operations of all IT Services

    • Leverage a deep understanding of what drives IT costs and performance to improve scenario planning capabilities and make better IT decisions

    • Provide IT cost and consumption data to business owners in the form of a “Bill of IT” to more effectively communicate the value of IT to the business.
  • SD-WAN for Public and Private Clouds Aug 11 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Parag Thakore, Director, Product Management
    The enterprise WAN is adapting to address the pervasive availability of broadband Internet, the shift of applications to the cloud and the increasing demands for real-time, online and critical applications in the branch office. At the same time enterprises have made significant investments in their existing WAN architecture infrastructure network equipment and WAN services. Many enterprises are evaluating an SD-WAN solution as a way to address the changing enterprise landscape without decommissioning their existing WAN any time soon.

    VeloCloud will guide you through various flexible architectures and transition steps for SD-WAN that target maximum return while minimizing disruption and risk. Examples of how a cloud-delivered SD-WAN enables flexible transition and deployment in both hybrid and Internet only branches will be shared.
  • Challenges to Stay Secure in the Era of Digital Business Aug 11 2015 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins

    The era of digital business is bringing a lot of opportunities for organizations. At the same time, it is bringing new challenges for those in charge of securing companies’ assets: customer data, intellectual property, and infrastructure.

    The digital business environment requires a new approach to security. An approach that focuses on supporting the business to achieve its desired outcomes while ensuring that what really matters is protected from the reach of hackers and criminals.

    In this webinar we will look into two distinct areas of IT: Enterprise Application and Mobility and the vulnerability landscape around those to discuss some of the challenges security professionals are facing today.

  • Planning Assumptions: What are they and why do we need them? Recorded: Jul 23 2015 19 mins
    Molly Latham, Consultant
    Realistic planning assumptions are an important element in a business continuity program. Why? They enable the planning team to identify the parameters they’re expecting to encounter following a disaster. They aren’t “pie-in-the-sky” wish lists but rather they’re the planner’s best guess about the conditions that will exist. Smart assumptions are usually unfavorable conditions, such as the lack of electric power or the unavailability of key people. Not-so-smart planning assumptions rely on best-case conditions that are probably not realistic.

  • DRaaS and Cloud Backup: Can you secure your company's assets with Hybrid Cloud? Recorded: Jul 23 2015 48 mins
    Eric Sansonny, General Manager, Aruba.IT
    Ensuring Business continuity and managing risks is becoming more and more crucial for companies heavily relying on technical infrastructure to run their business such as CRM, ERP, CMS, accounting, big data and more.

    Todays's economy cannot be conceived without the use of such systems, more and more connected and presumably accessible from everywhere.

    Data is now the key asset of any company, and needs to be protected the same way as everyone protects their assets.

    But the reality is far from this. So many companies are "saving" money by using non-redundant infrastructures, networks or servers, and often have to experience the worst scenario to start digging into Disaster Recovery, but it's already too late.

    So join Eric Sansonny as he looks at Disaster Recovery as a Service and Cloud Backups to see if the solution lies there.
  • Hyper-converged BCDR: Using local, remote & cloud-based backups for resiliency Recorded: Jul 23 2015 29 mins
    Wim Vandebroeck, Director of Service, Nutanix
    The vast majority of applications today are under protected – or completely unprotected – making enterprises vulnerable to data loss or downtime during disasters. Legacy data protection and DR solutions, while still relevant to certain classes of workloads, have failed to adapt to the needs of modern virtualized applications and infrastructure.

    Join Wim Vandebroeck as he explains how to use local, remote, and cloud-based backups to achieve high-levels of availability and resiliency in the event of component failure, node failure, rack failure, or an entire datacenter outage.
