  • How to Prepare Your Network for the Cloud How to Prepare Your Network for the Cloud Steve Woo, VP of Product and Co-founder Recorded: Feb 2 2017 53 mins
    Enterprise application migration to the cloud is forcing the re-evaluation of traditional WAN architectures. The wide distribution, dynamic nature and public cloud location of these cloud application workloads significantly changes the architectural requirements. Both private network and Internet accessibility must be considered. How can both on-premises and cloud applications be seamlessly incorporated into the same architecture, operational management, and business policies?

    What are the critical ingredients of a WAN architecture to provide the performance, security, reliability and operational efficiency necessitated by these new hybrid or cloud application architectures?

    Join us to learn how SD-WAN (Software-Defined Wide Area Network) can optimally address these new requirements. Gain an understanding of the different approaches - Do It Yourself, Cloud Delivered SD-WAN as a Service, and Managed SD-WAN solutions from service providers.

  • LSE: Power of Productivity Report Results LSE: Power of Productivity Report Results Dr. Alexander Grous, London School of Economics & Political Science Recorded: Jan 18 2017 4 mins
    On December 8, 2016, Vodafone UK and the London School of Economics released a comprehensive report looking into the business productivity and how businesses of all sizes can unlock new growth. As a nation, we’re at a critical juncture as we strive to increase economic output and join the top productive G7 nations – and Dr Alexander Grous from the LSE has used data from over 20,000 interviews over ten years to address this problem. Alexander notes that the major block to organisations addressing the productivity puzzle is that firms either don’t even know there is a problem or don’t know how to address it constructively. In this video interview, Dr. Grous explains the three key components he has found during his research to help businesses unlock their productivity:

    1) Good management practices - Dr. Grous calls this the lever; all productivity either thrives or fails at this level
    2) The use of technology in the firm
    3) Flexible workforce

    Dr. Grous goes on to explain not only how to create a flexible workforce, but to nurture this as well, so that employees are motivated, happy, and most importantly, producing effective work. Through a solid understanding of the composition of the firm, and what ideal organisational output is, management can then begin to see what enables productivity, and how they can measure effectiveness.
  • Vodafone: Better Ways of Working Vodafone: Better Ways of Working Phil Mottram, Enterprise Director, Vodafone UK Recorded: Jan 18 2017 5 mins
    In 2009, Vodafone UK introduced their Better Ways of Working project to enable their employees to work in a more flexible environment. This included an open plan environment – no office, no fixed desks, or landline phones – and introduced new technologies that made greater use of unified communications strategies and video conferencing. Employees want, and need, to work as a part of different teams at different times, and from different locations and Vodafone have seen enormous benefits through this project being put into place.

    In this video interview, Phil Mottram, Director of Enterprise at Vodafone UK, discusses the key benefits to Vodafone’s Better Ways of Working strategy. With happier employees, better productivity, and reduced costs, all through flexible working, this shared way of working paved the way for Vodafone to have a holistic understanding of what benefits this deployment really brings to businesses big and small.

    Phil also explains the tools that Vodafone provides for its customers in implementing these practices. With Vodafone’s advisory services function, customers are able to enjoy not only the technological aspects of flexible working, but the softer components as well, such as communicating and engaging with employees on how these changes will affect them. With Vodafone’s ‘Ready Business Indicator’ , customers have an easy, online tool that can help demonstrate where a business is with regards to performance, where there can be room for improvement, and help assess a business’s readiness to deal with change.

    Phil also describes how to overcome the barrier of those who are resistant to change. To those who have made their desk their ‘home away from home’, this can be particularly challenging. See what Phil has to say about overcoming this challenge, and ensuring your business is making the most of what flexible working has to offer.

  • How to Integrate Cloud Security into SD-WAN How to Integrate Cloud Security into SD-WAN Ray Wong, Sr. Solutions Engineer, EMEA Mar 21 2017 9:00 am UTC 30 mins
    In recent times speed has become the currency of business, and security threats have multiplied and soared in sophistication—often rendering traditional security deployments insufficient or ineffective. Cloud-delivered security provides a great opportunity for enterprises to strengthen security posture, to quickly deploy the latest defense mechanisms, while at the same time reducing latency and costs.

    Join this webinar to learn how to transition to cloud security in a complex distributed enterprise environment, address the challenges and preserve application performance.

    Topics covered include:
    - Challenges faced when introducing cloud security into a legacy network
    - Key considerations to ensure a successful migration
    - A guide to how an SD-WAN solution simplifies the transition from on-premise security to cloud security
  • Storage Refresh? 3 Capabilities Primary Storage Must Have (but probably doesn't) Storage Refresh? 3 Capabilities Primary Storage Must Have (but probably doesn't) Charlie Hodges, Storage Switzerland Mar 23 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    If your organization is embarking on a refresh of your primary storage system this year, this is the one webinar that you will want to attend. IT evaluators that haven't looked at storage in a few years, will be impressed the use of flash to improve performance, while many claim to integrate file (NFS, SMB) and block (iSCSI, Fibre) protocols. These features though are now table stakes for the modern storage solution.

    While all of these features are important (and not created equal), IT professionals should demand capabilities that solve today's organizational challenges like eliminating shadow IT, improving multi-site productivity and long term data retention as well as meeting increasingly strict compliance standards. IT professionals should look for not only high performance and universal protocol support but also enterprise file sync and share, inter-data center sync and secure archive with compliance.
  • How to Extend SD-WAN to AWS How to Extend SD-WAN to AWS Ray Wong, Sr. Solutions Engineer, EMEA Apr 4 2017 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Enterprises are trending towards deploying inexpensive Internet broadband links to enable bandwidth-intensive applications, but public transport links are “best-effort”, insecure and susceptible to damaging attacks. A cloud-delivered SD-WAN delivers ubiquitous security and enterprise-grade application performance independent of the transport medium, enabling a cost-effective solution for organizations increasingly moving data center workloads to IaaS, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    In this seminar, you learn ways to reduce operational complexity and optimize application performance to cloud data centers, including:

    - The challenges inherent in access to IaaS workloads such as AWS and Azure
    - Seamlessly including IaaS workloads in your SD-WAN architecture with only a few clicks
    - How to secure and optimize IaaS access in your SD-WAN
    - A live demonstration of cloud-delivered SD-WAN capabilities
