  • 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.
  • Does Your DR Replication Strategy Match Your Business Needs Recorded: Jul 23 2015 49 mins

  • 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.

  • Minimizing Risk with One, Automated Disaster Recovery Solution Recorded: Jul 22 2015 45 mins
    Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer, Long Term Care Group
    Many organizations have complex BC/DR plans consisting of several products, requiring multiple people to be present to execute the recovery, should disaster strike. This was the case at Long Term Care Group. They were using an orchestration tool with storage-based replication. Executing a DR test was becoming more and more difficult and confidence in their plan was fading.

    Zerto Virtual Replication provides continuous block-level replication and fully automated and orchestrated failover, recovery, failback and DR testing. Mike Gelhar, Systems Engineer at Long Term Care Group knew they had found the solution they needed to deliver robust BC/DR while greatly reducing risk.

    - Reduce risk with an automated solution that anyone can execute
    - DR Testing ensures recovery through reports and provides the opportunity to make adjustments in the plan
    - Maximize the investment with a solution that can simplify migrations and maintenance of the environment
    - Installation is complete in one hour with no configuration changes so the carefully architected production environment is not changed, further reducing risk
