Die Anforderungen an die IT sind klar definiert: Anwendungen sollen schneller, qualitativ hochwertiger und fehlerfrei entwickelt und zur Verfügung gestellt werden. Diese Anforderungen können nur durch eine effektive Integration der IT-Werkzeuge erfüllt werden – auch im Netzwerk.
Ist die heterogene Netzwerkinfrastruktur aufgebaut, muss diese sicher und stabil betrieben werden. Neben dem Fehler- und Verfügbarkeitsmanagement sind auch die Disziplinen Performance- und Traffic-Management, sowie das Konfigurationsmanagement in Kombination mit dem Compliance-Management zur Einhaltung von fremden und eigenen Richtlinien notwendig.
Um die beschriebenen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken, gibt es viele unterschiedliche Werkzeuge. Typischerweise sind diese oft nicht – oder nur mangelhaft – integriert. Dies hat zur Folge, dass die reibungslose Netzwerküberwachung im laufenden Betrieb scheitert, da die Pflege der isolierten bzw. nicht integrierten Systeme sehr arbeitsintensiv ist. Eine oft verfolgte Best-of-Breed-Strategie ist hier also nicht zielführend.
Die Netzwerkmanagement-Lösung von Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), bestehend aus dem Network Node Manager i (NNMi) und dem Network Automation (NA), ist eine vollständig integrierte Softwarelösung, um die heutigen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken und die Arbeitsaufwände zu reduzieren.
Erfahren Sie in unserem kostenfreien Live-Webinar mehr über die Lösung von HPE anhand von konkreten Anwendungsfällen unserer Kunden.
Das Webinar findet in deutscher Sprache statt.
This webinar focuses on the type of complainants that qualify to use Section 337. As the Supreme Court and the Federal Circuit have rendered decisions that make the district courts less attractive for patent litigation by non-practicing entities, their attention has turned to the ITC. There are several cases before the Commission right now that have raised very important questions regarding where the Commission should draw the line for satisfying the so-called Domestic Industry requirement. Panelists will provide an overview of Commission law on this topic, summarize the recent cases and discuss the policy and strategic implications for litigants.
Panelists: Maureen Browne and Ashley Miller, Covington & Burling and Steven Haines, Legal Director, Seagate Technology

Cloud computing gives end-users a utility model for the consumption of IT, such as self-service selection, service desk functions, strong SLAs and pay-as-you-go pricing. However IT shops are having to organise themselves differently to separate these services from the underlying technology.
In this presentation Martin will look at a number of cloud reference architectures, outline new IT roles and how their activities should result in successful delivery of cloud services to users. He will look at enterprise, government and service provider developments as well as SaaS, BPaaS, IaaS and PaaS services.
Data protection, identification, anti-virus intrusion protection and authentification are complex, but well understood, issues in the physical IT world. The increasing use of smart phones and tablets and Cloud services in business are putting them back on the agenda, with new threats added to old. We will look through the FUD to try to identify a priority to address in the new virtualised, Cloud-centric world.Read more >
Patent litigation and trials present unique challenges and opportunities for universities and other academic institutions.

In addition, the panel will give an overview of successful enforcement actions brought by prominent academic institutions in federal court and the ITC, and provide the trial lawyer's perspective regarding what made these actions successful.Read more >

Data mining and analytics have the ability to greatly improve IT efficiency and security.

Chris Goettl from Landesk chats with ITC TV hosts Kirstie Magowan and Carlos Casanova at the Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas.

All companies must assume that they will be breached, what they do about those breaches is what matters.Read more >

Nathan Bach from Driscoll’s talked with ITC TV Hosts Kirstie Magowan and Carlos Casanova at the Gartner Data Center conference in Las Vegas. Nathan was speaking at the event about the choice of back-up solution used at Driscoll’s – one of the world’s largest producers of strawberries. Driscoll’s is essentially a genetics company, developing new varieties through traditional breeding methods, that requires a lot of R&D and proprietary information. They leverage technology in various ways to greatly reduce the time that it takes to bring new varieties to the market. This is a great illustration of how IT is behind the production of the final product – in Driscoll’s case it is about putting great tasting strawberries on the tables of their customers.Read more >
Clint Wyckoff from Veeam Software chatted with ITC TV hosts Carlos Casanova and Charlie Betz at the Gartner Data Center Conference in Las Vegas. Clint explained how the data center market is shifting to public cloud providers, particularly with software as a service offerings. Veeam has tools that help in this area. Clint talked about what Veeam can offer in the disaster recovery space. Many people think that if something is housed in a public cloud then it is automatically protected from disaster, but as Clint reminded us, most error is human error. The cloud is not disaster proof. Veeam software makes sure that applications are always made available to the business.Read more >

The Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 provides the first federal civil cause of action for trade secrets misappropriation. Join us for a discussion of the cases filed under the new statute and an exploration of the emerging legal and strategic issues facing DTSA litigants.
Topics to be addressed by the panel include the identification and management of trade secret assets to avoid their misappropriation; the strategic considerations for referring a trade secrets case to the criminal authorities after a breach has occurred; the primary differences between litigating trade secrets claims under state and federal law; and a review of the first wave of cases being filed under the new federal statute.
On June 13, 2016, the United States Supreme Court decided that the two-part Seagate test being used to decide whether or not an infringer is subject to enhanced damages was inconsistent with the statutory authority (35 U.S.C. §284) relied on for those claims. How has that decision impacted the District and Federal Circuit Court rulings?

- Impact on the Federal Circuit cases following Halo
Join RWS inovia and Managing IP Magazine for a complimentary webinar as we discuss Brexit and implications for the Unitary Patent (UP), the Unitary Patent Court (UPC) and other important patent related issues.
The UP was established with the intent of providing a single European patent covering 26 nations. With the recent vote for Brexit, there is uncertainty as to when and how the UP will come into force. If it does, it may not include the UK, one of the largest economies in Europe.
How will this affect your patent portfolio? Join us for the discussion!
The webinar will be moderated by James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP and will feature Reinhard Ottway, CEO of RWS Group, Gary Smith, former Director of the PCT at WIPO, and Justin Simpson, Founder of inovia as they discuss the following topics:
Following Brexit what are the implications for the UK, Europe, and beyond?
How will this affect your filing and enforcement strategies?
How will this impact the cost of receiving patent protection?
