  • The BYOD trend is a symptom of consumerization in the mobile/cloud era that presents an opportunity for IT to be more relevant to the business. Recent studies show more interest than ever in BYO “anything” programs, however this transformation is hindered by concerns over security and complexity. From MacBooks and laptops to smartphones and tablets, a BYO “Anything” strategy must start with the user, not the device. By attending this webinar and discussion, you will learn:
    - How to take a people-centric approach to BYOD programs
    - Simple tips for navigating through the policy nightmares associated with BYOD
    - Key infrastructure requirement for a successful BYOD program
    - How a successful BYOD program can lead to even greater value for business mobility
  • Milliseconds can mean millions of dollars made or lost but if you have to pay millions of dollars for it in the first place, is it really worth it? Loading up servers with flash or buying the most expensive storage systems on the planet have been the only way to achieve the lowest possible latency for virtualized SQL apps that require HA. Join George Wagner, Sr. Product Marketing Manager from NexGen Storage to discuss how new value-driven data management capabilities can deliver extreme low latency to the data that needs it without breaking the bank.
  • Scaling multiple databases with a single legacy storage system works well from a cost perspective, but workload conflicts and hardware contention make these solutions an unattractive choice for anything but low-performance applications.

    Attend the webinar to learn about:
    - How SolidFire’s all-flash storage system provides high performance at massive scale for mixed workload processing while simultaneously controlling costs and guaranteeing performance
    - How to deploy four or more database copies using SolidFire’s Oracle Validated Configuration, at a price point at or below the cost of traditional storage systems
    - SolidFire’s Quality of Service (QoS) guarantee; every copy receives dedicated all-flash performance, so IT admins can deliver solutions with confidence and maximize business efficiency

  • Achieving cost-effective disaster recovery (DR) services without a physical DR site — or having to extend your DR footprint — is possible. In this live webcast with Microsoft, see how you can use AppAssure software in combination with Microsoft® Azure® and disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) from Dell partner, eFolder.

    The first half of the webcast will showcase how you can store AppAssure backup archives directly on Azure and perform item-level recovery from the archive without having to download the archive from the cloud. Then we’ll showcase ways to replicate AppAssure backup images to the eFolder® Storage Cloud® and enable multiple disaster recovery options.

    Join our webcast partnered with Microsoft® and see how easy it is to:
    • Manage the growth of your backup archives
    • Establish cost-effective disaster recovery without a DR site
    • Avoid extending your DR footprint

    What you will learn:
    • How to leverage Azure to directly store AppAssure backup archives
    • How to perform item-level recovery from the archive without downloading the archive from the cloud
    • How to replicate AppAssure backup images to the eFolder Storage Cloud
    • How to enable multiple disaster recovery options, including image download, overnight drive shipment or recovery in the eFolder® Continuity Cloud®
  • The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.

    Join our lively panel discussion with DevOps industry experts Paul Muller and Damon Edwards as they discuss:

    Common problems in traditional DevOps teams
    How these teams have changed to truly transform and become innovators
    How you can apply these ideas to your business to boost your bottom line
  • The holy grail of enterprise software is the achievement of positive return on investment (ROI). If the technology happens to be user-friendly, that is a nice bonus. Such a combination can be tough to come by, but smart organizations are learning that business productivity search can not only pay for itself, but also drive more value by making workers more efficient and effective. Join us for a complimentary webinar that will show you how to make the business case for business productivity search.

    Our special guests, Dante DeWitt, former CIO of Wells Fargo and Bank of Montreal, and productivity expert Sue Becker, will provide real-world perspectives and best practices for business productivity search. Dante will illustrate how business productivity search provides meaningful ROI in a way that traditional enterprise search cannot. While Sue will share some of the horror stories of how the explosion of digital information has made us less productive than we can be. Sue will also offer some strategies and best practices for remaining productive by mixing process and technology together. Such productivity is especially important in today’s information economy.

    This webinar will demonstrate how business productivity search provides real ROI. Attendees will learn:

    - How business productivity search produces value by putting the end-user search experience first
    - Why personal memory recall is the best analytical engine for business productivity search
    - How to best deploy search solutions in all IT infrastructures
    - How to achieve ROI on enterprise search in ways never seen in the past
    - That search can be like BASF – it can make many other technology deployments better, including VDI, SharePoint, and Enterprise Vault
  • In the era of the APP economy where business models are being disrupted daily, there is a trend towards IT becoming a service broker increasingly leveraging a cloud supplier model for delivering services. How does this fit with organizations service management making technology solution decisions? What are the governance and service level management implications of these trends? Do they warrant a sophisticated approach to SLM? Or can traditional SLM practices and service desk SLM capabilities handle this new world. What are the implications of the service broker scenario on change management? Does change management go away or take on a different role? Is it easier or more difficult? Is the BAC still needed?

    These are just some of the questions that moderator extraordinaire Allen Houpt will pose to our distinguished panelists, including Troy Dumoulin of Pink Elephant, Randal Locke CA’s ITIL Texas Ranger and Robert Stroud will discuss in this frank debate on the real value of service management!

    This event qualifies for 1 priSM Continual Professional Development (CPD) credit.
