Monitor, Analyze, and Control Server Power and Temperature
Lenovo XClarityTM Energy Manager helps you simplify data center energy management. XClarity Energy Manager is an easy to use application that analyzes and controls power consumption and temperature for groups of servers. By analyzing power and temperature data, XClarity Energy Manager helps data center administrators establish policy-based control over data center energy optimization goals which can improve business continuity and energy efficiency. Join us to see how this this application improves operation processes by:
•Monitoring energy consumption, estimating the power demand, and reallocating power to servers as needed.
•Monitoring the temperature and cooling capacity of servers and datacenter spaces.
•Sending notifications when certain events occur or when thresholds are exceeded.
•Limiting the amount of energy that an endpoint or a group consumes using policies.
•Optimizing energy efficiency by monitoring real-time inlet temperatures, identifying low-usage servers based on out-of-band power data, measuring power rangers for different server models, and evaluating how servers accommodate new workloads based on the availability of resources.
•Reducing the power consumption to a minimum level to prolong service time during an emergency power event (such as a data-center power failure).

New threats emerge daily, sometimes hourly. But how often are you assessing network vulnerabilities? If it’s less than daily, is your vulnerability management program really protecting your organisation from attacks? Or is it merely a compliance checkbox for auditors?
How often can you claim to know exactly how vulnerable you are, and in turn what to do about those vulnerabilities?
Tune into this SC Magazine online panel discussion to hear case studies and tips from industry experts on how to:
* Actually reduce the risk vulnerabilities pose to your business
* Prioritise vulnerabilities in a way that makes sense for your specific threat posture
* Patch effectively and eventually move away from the patch model all together
* Filter and act on your reams of vulnerability data

+ Income versus total return approach during retirement: given how low bond and dividend yields are right now, is the income-only approach realistic?

+ Many financial advisors and individual investors are using the "bucket" approach to managing portfolios. What are the key strengths/limitations of the bucket strategy?

We all know the baby boomers have changed what it means to be retired, but so have the Silent, G.I. and Lost generations before them, and so will Generation Jones, Gen X and the Millennials going forward. What you may not know is that each generation brings with it a cyclical pattern of attitudes and beliefs that influence how they view the world and how they approach retirement and investing. This session will examine the formative experiences of various generations, how they shape your client’s attitudes and beliefs, and how you can use that knowledge to develop stronger and deeper client relationships.Read more >

Everyone wants to work with affluent clients, but how do you make them want to work with you? The key is in understanding the values and priorities that drive their behavior. In this session we will tap into the psychology behind how affluence impacts personal development and why traditional numbers based financial planning is no longer enough to develop deeply loyal client relationships, particularly among affluent investors. We'll then borrow some skills and techniques from the coaching industry and learn how to integrate those techniques into your existing discovery process to engage the affluent in more meaningful conversations, develop stronger relationships and effectively handle those times when clients expect you to be psychologist, therapist and financial planner. Specifically, we'll examine:
* The values and motivators of different market segments
* How clients' motivators change based on affluence
* How understanding Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Development and the burgeoning fields of positive psychology and personal coaching can help you differentiate yourself and better engage your clients in conversations that are more personally meaningful to create stronger, more loyal client relationships

We’re going to talk to the best in class for subscription strategies -- we’re talking to Netflix and other top execs about the best ways to convert your users into subscribers -- and keep them for the long haul. We’re also going to look at how improving your payments increases your subscriber worth as a whole -- and brings huge revenue where it counts.
Join us for an interactive free discussion on how you can get your casual users to put a ring on it.
In this webinar, you’ll:
* Learn how to convert your users into long term subscribers for revenue you can count on
* Improve your payment system to actually increase overall revenue
