Patent litigation and trials present unique challenges and opportunities for universities and other academic institutions. The panel will discuss these unique circumstances in depth, including national data on university patent litigation, effective university trial themes, PTAB validity challenges, university standing in patent infringement litigation, the assignment versus license of patent rights, and the enforcement of running royalty provisions. 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 >
Learn how the IT operations team at University of Chicago built a centralized and service centric approach to IT infrastructure monitoring. The University of Chicago is using CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) to implement a central, integrated approach for monitoring IT systems, applications, networks, VoIP phones, data center infrastructure and business services. Be it PBX phones or data center water chillers, they are monitoring it all centrally. This approach has resulted in enhanced visibility across the organization and reducing outages by up to 300%.Read more >
Join this webinar to learn how the University of Georgia (UGA) uses Apache Spark and other tools for Big Data analytics and data science research.
UGA needs to give its students and faculty the ability to do hands-on data analysis, with instant access to their own Spark clusters and other Big Data applications.
So how do they provide on-demand Big Data infrastructure and applications for a wide range of data science use cases? How do they give their users the flexibility to try different tools without excessive overhead or cost?
In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
- Spin up new Spark and Hadoop clusters within minutes, and quickly upgrade to new versions
- Make it easy for users to build and tinker with their own end-to-end data science environments
- Deploy cost-effective, on-premises elastic infrastructure for Big Data analytics and research
Lower the Tuition for IT Security Visibility
Securing the IT environment in today’s college or university is no task for the faint of heart. With a user population of digital natives, a school’s IT services are often a high-risk zone where state-of-the art learning and research meets the global threat laboratory. Reducing risk and maintaining compliance requires centralized security visibility and the tools to identify and remove threats quickly and efficiently.
That’s exactly the challenge the IT services team at Marquette University faced recently—and solved—with the AlienVault Unified Security Management™ platform.
Today, the Marquette IT team enjoys:
*Full visibility into network, server and user activities
*Dramatically faster incident response
*Greater ability to manage attacks and prove compliance
*20% cost reduction in their security monitoring program
During this valuable webinar, you'll discover exactly how Marquette did it—with limited expense and IT staff —and what they learned along the way. Please join us
Justin Webb: Security Analyst, IT Services, Marquette University
Sandy Hawke: VP of Product Marketing, AlienVault
Please join Teradici and the University of Waterloo for an insightful session on how the school significantly improved the user experience and increased server density.
This webinar will share how the University’s Federation of Students successfully implemented VDI and PCoIP Hardware Accelerator to achieve the following results:
•Delivered superior-quality viewing experience with improved video performance ̶ dragging and dropping items in these applications were previously very choppy and slow
•Realized cost savings by achieving higher performance without purchasing additional CPU cores
•Reduced CPU load and increased server density by 50 percent
Q&A will follow at the end of the session.
With evolving BYOD requirements in a large wireless network of thousands of varied users and devices, Columbus State University required a comprehensive NAC BYOD solution. Learn how they transitioned from a guest management solution to a secure NAC environment that will provide real-time network visibility and security automation. This webinar will discuss the process of their transition to NAC BYOD and how the university benefits from:
• Fast, easy and secure network access for thousands of students, faculty and guests
• Automated network provisioning for this campus wide mobile wireless environment
• A reduction in support calls to a burdened IT staff
• A network-wide visibility of all connections to help eliminate blind spots
Organizations with large, dispersed user populations face the challenge of protecting users in many different circumstances. When it comes to security, the human element is the most difficult to control, so having the right tools is essential.
The Verizon 2016 DBIR reveals that 63% of breaches used weak, default or stolen credentials, and again they recommend two-factor authentication as one of the protective measures. But how can you get your privileged staff—not to mention others on campus—to accept something that creates a break in their workflow?
In this webinar, you will learn:
Why OSU selected Duo for two-factor and endpoint security
How they eliminated the burden of provisioning
The OSU approach to endpoint visibility
Colleges and universities are often at the forefront of new tech support challenges, from BYOD, to supporting remote campuses and online students, to keeping up with the latest social media tools. Yet despite these modern complications, some higher education institutions are not just keeping up with the demands of supporting students and staff - they are improving the support experience. Hear from Peter Jurh of Boise State and James Davies from University for the Creative Arts on how, using Bomgar's remote support solution, they have handled the influx of new technologies and off campus students, while improving the end-user experience.Read more >

Like many large universities, the University of New Brunswick (UNB) found itself increasingly targeted by a vast array of Internet threats. Originally designed to give large numbers of users broad access to data of all kinds, university IT systems like UNB’s are easy targets for cyber criminals.
Join David Shipley from UNB for this live, interactive webinar, as he describes the ambitious process that he and his colleagues undertook to implement a proactive, intelligence-based cyber security strategy that gives them real-time visibility into attacks in progress, along with actionable insights to respond quickly and effectively.
In less than an hour, David will tell you:
• Why simply reinforcing perimeter defenses was not the right approach for UNB
• How they were able to gain better security visibility and intelligence—and use it effectively
• Which solutions combined to dramatically improve UNB’s cyber security without greatly increasing resource demands
• And more…
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from an accomplished peer, and to discover how you too can create and implement an effective, intelligence-based security strategy for your organization.

Most HR organizations know what they need to do in order to succeed—but they don’t do it. Why is that? After all, companies spend big bucks to send HR teams to conferences, buy the latest technology, and teach best practices. And HR people are great at seeking networking opportunities and attending webinars. So what keeps us from putting that learning to its optimal use?
In this #SmartTalkHR webinar with Jeffrey Pfeffer, an American business theorist and the Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, you’ll discover how to close that gap between knowing and doing—once and for all. This informative session will cover:
- What barriers commonly prevent us from acting on what we know
- Which strategies and tools empower you to turn actionable insight into real action
- How the right management practices can build a culture focused on getting things done
