    IT leaders look to technology as a business differentiator and rely on it to foster innovation. Enterprises have discovered that hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) can be the foundation of a modern, cloud-like datacenter. But don’t stop there — going beyond HCI delivers more savings, increases IT agility, and supports multi-cloud goals when you add virtualization as an integral part of your stack.

    How do you harness the power of HCI and virtualization? Sure, there are a wide variety of tools on the market, but choosing the wrong HCI platform could limit your options in how you operate your datacenter or could impede cloud goals — including those associated with virtualization.

    To learn more about the power of HCI and virtualization, how virtualization can remove complexity and increase efficiency, and how to choose the right HCI tool, don’t miss this VB live event!

    Registration is free.

    Attend and learn:
    * How virtualization platform options on the market compare
    * Why to consider changing virtualization solutions
    * How to choose the right virtualization solution
    * How to save thousands in virtualization licensing costs

  • Understanding the Impact of Labor Laws on Employee Scheduling
    Understanding the Impact of Labor Laws on Employee Scheduling
    Dorothy Pults, Director of Product Marketing at Shiftboard Dec 27 2018 6:00 pm UTC 52 mins
    Organizations that manage a shift-based (and hourly) workforce must contend with complex scheduling rules including labor laws and labor agreements. With more states and even cities supplementing US Labor laws, it can be difficult to keep up with all the changes. Many of these laws impact overtime pay, required break periods, and employee rights around a more predictable schedule–which can significantly increase your labor costs. By understanding labor laws, you can create better employee schedules, reduce overtime, and ensure compliance.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    • What is driving changes to labor laws in states and cities across the US
    • What are the key labor laws that affect employee scheduling
    • How technology can help you automate and create better schedules

    We will also provide some practical examples to help you understand the complexity of California, Washington, Seattle, and San Francisco labor laws. These same examples are often found in collective bargaining agreements (CBAs).

    About the presenter:
    Dorothy Pults recently completed a significant research project on US and International Labor Laws and GDPR compliance implications for scheduling shift-based (hourly) workforce. Dorothy has held leadership roles in engineering, product management and product marketing at fast growing companies including EMC, Limelight Networks and F5 Networks drive record customer growth and is recognized for her work aligning products to meet the unique needs of customers.

  • Feel Amazing About 2018: How to Review Your Year
    Feel Amazing About 2018: How to Review Your Year
    Harriet Waley-Cohen, Speaker and certified coach Jan 4 2019 12:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    My inbox at the end of the year is often full of people urging me to 'set big, powerful New Year goals.' And then trying to sell me services to help me plan and achieve. I'm all for goal setting, chasing dreams, planning, but it's really important to stop and take stock first.

    If you're always chasing the next level, the next big win, the next half a stone to loose, there's a danger of never really feeling like you're actually achieving anything. You miss the joy and fulfilment of knowing you already got somewhere really wonderful.

    The end of the calendar year is a brilliant time to pause and take in everything that you've achieved, record all the happy memories that have been made, celebrate all the challenges you've overcome and reflect on the lessons learnt. Don't set any new goals until you've stopped to reflect on the last 12 months.

    This kind of review not only makes for a wonderful memoire of the year, it also boosts self-esteem and confidence and gives you a great perspective on what the year has actually meant for you in every area of life. It will also make you feel much more excited and positive about what will be possible for you in the future to, and where you might want to focus for the future.

    In this webinar you will learn the key to reviewing your year constructively, including:
    The key headings to split life into, so that nothing important gets missed when you review your year.
    Powerful questions that will help you remember, interpret and celebrate.
    How to balance the good with the lessons and mess-ups constructively.
    How to feel amazing about the year that is ending so that your ideas about what your focus should be goal wise for 2019 is supportive of what actually makes you happy.
  • Risk Reporting
    Risk Reporting
    Dr Simon Ashby Jan 7 2019 11:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Are you looking at implementing a new risk reporting framework or update one that you have already? In this webinar we will explore some of the options that are available. Learn how to get the most from tools such as risk registers, risk and control indicators and risk matrices. Consider the options available when designing reports and identify the limitations of common risk reporting practices.

    Risk reporting is an important output from the risk management process and should be a key input into both strategic and operational decision making. But if the wrong tools are used or reports are poorly designed then reporting can do more harm than good. Are your reporting arrangements adding value to management decision making and promoting intelligent conversations about risk tasking and control or are they little more than a procedural exercise?
