What challenges will IT decision makers face in the next few years, and what technologies will emerge to help them in their task? How will the business landscape change and what new demands will be made on the IT department. Peter Judge and a panel of three experts will debate this month on the challenges facing IT decision-makers in the upcoming year and indeed decade.Read more >
This is an interactive panel session hosted by Peter Judge, Editor of eWeek with three guest contributors:
James Rendell, Senior Technical Security Specialist, IBM
Steve Moyle, Chief Technology Officer, Secerno
Paul Roberts, Cloud Security Analyst, The 451 Group
This panel will discuss Cloud Security and whether cloud service providers can prove they are compliant. This is an issue that hasn't had sufficient airtime yet and so the panel will seek to explore...
a) Whether cloud services more secure than most in-house services
b) Whether cloud providers can demonstrate that they meet compliance regulations
c) The implications of compliance regulations on the services cloud providers will be able to offer
There will be opportunities for the audience to give its opinion and also to ask the panel questions
Organisations are scrambling to tighten up their information strategy, in order to meet regulations and reduce risks. But there might be one loophole in the response, one device you may well have forgotten: your printers.
Big organisations need top-down strategies to manage their output, and smaller companies need to take control of their printer fleet before the hidden costs take them by surprise.
Why are printers a security risk and how much money are you wasting by not bringing them under control? This webinar could surprise you.
Storage has expanded uncontrollably. Now is the time to rein it in, using the latest tools to share, virtualise and de-duplicate what you have. But will a more efficient storage infrastructure create new risks by introducing different points of failure? Do new storage products simply shift the risk from hardware failures to software crashes?
How will cloud computing affect the dynamics of the storage market, and how quickly will solid state devices redefine the underlying hardware?
New arrivals: what storage announcements did CeBIT bring?
What impact will the news from Mobile World Congress have on the enterprise?
With platform wars hotting up, will you be using the iPhone, Android, RIM or WinMobile?
Is mobility a threat, and how can you control it?
Join this interactive panel session to hear from industry thought leaders and also have your say. The panel will be discussing the true drivers behind the Green IT movement and what the long term outlook is. As a live participant you will be able to vote on the subjects being discussed and also pose questions to the panel, moderated by Peter Judge, UK Editor of eWeek Europe.

The UN climate change conference is meeting in Copenhagen in December to thrash out a successor to the Kyoto protocol which will force all organisations to reduce their environmental footprint. Meanwhile, the UK government's carbon credit scheme, the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC), coming into force in 2010, is in the vanguard of efforts round the world to make organisations account for the greenhouse gas emissions they are responsible for.
Carbon credits will introduce a new kind of accounting into businesses, and new definitions of costs into business planning. Companies in the UK will be among the first to make the transition to a world where there is a bottom line for carbon emissions. Will the scheme work though, and what does your organisation have to do to comply with it? Join our interactive web seminar to pose your questions, listen, and find out.
