Two critical dates are approaching, for users of Microsoft SQL and Windows Server:
• Extended Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 ends July 9th 2019
• Extended Support for Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 ends January 14th 2020
As you are probably aware, ‘end of support’ means the end of essential updates like security updates, potentially putting an organisation at risk from sophisticated and increasingly frequent cyberattacks.
It is therefore critical for organisations to accelerate their migration planning to Microsoft SQL 2017/19 and Windows Server 2019 and associated IT infrastructure requirements.
We are therefore delighted to invite you to our forthcoming Live Webinar “Build your Migration Plan with Dell EMC” on Wednesday, 10 July 2019 at 11.00 am.
Join our migration expert, Mark Mulvany, to hear how organisations are successfully transitioning to Windows SQL 2017/2019 and Windows Server 2019 with the support of Dell EMC.
During the session Mark Mulvany, EMEA Hybrid Cloud Lead at Dell EMC will explore:
• Critical End of Support Dates and Impact On an Organisation
• Potential Deployment Scenarios
• Milestones to Migration
• Understand & Assessing Existing Environments
• Action Plan
• Underlying Infrastructure Considerations
• SQL Server Overview
At the end of this session you will have a better understanding of the migration plans and solutions that are available and indeed how Dell EMC can support you.

According to Dell EMC Global Data Protecion Index, in 2018, the average volume of data an organization managed grew by 569% globally, compared to 2016. Unable to predict how much data they will need to protect and manage over the next two or three years, IT organizations require a new level of flexibility and scalability. To enable organizations to protect, manage and recover data at scale in on-premises, virtualized and public cloud environments, Dell EMC created PowerProtect Software and the PowerProtect X400 integrated appliance – the newest additions to the Dell EMC Data Protection portfolio. Through PowerProtect Software and the PowerProtect X400 appliance, Dell EMC is delivering the next generation data management platform that customers can rely on for future growth, not in just protecting data, but providing superior risk reduction for workloads and enabling data reuse.
Join the webcast & hear from Steve Caltagirone, Dell EMC’s EMEA Product Line Manager for Data Protection how you can benefit from PowerProtect Software and the PowerProtect X400 appliance – the recently launched next generation data management platform.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) holds limitless potential for businesses in every industry and humanity as whole; from bringing vision to the blind, to curing cancer, to self-driving cars. However, connecting the dots between these magical AI outcomes and the impact AI could have on your business is not always straightforward. This is highlighted by the fact that 95% of CXO’s agree that AI will transform their business but only a few percent of organizations actually have AI in production.
Sophia the Robot and Dell EMC are working to bridge that gap and demystify the complexity of AI by showcasing the ‘Art of the Possible’ with AI. You may not need a walking, talking humanoid bot like Sophia, but she can be your muse to spark ideas about how techniques like video analytics, image detection, and natural language processing can be applied across industry.
Join this webinar to hear directly from Sophia about why there has never been a better time to jump into AI and experience AI in action as Sophia fields question from Thomas and our live studio audience.

Cyber criminals are continuously shifting their attack techniques to better target endpoints. As more than one-third of cyber-attacks are now non-malware based, adversaries can exploit gaps in traditional antimalware solutions used in isolation.
Many businesses are injecting ineffective security tools into their environments, ultimately adding complexity without directly addressing the problem. These disconnected solutions require ongoing diligence and expert resources to analyze a multitude of security alerts and identify compromised devices. Yet, with the growing cybersecurity skills gap, businesses don’t have the resources needed to manage their security infrastructure effectively.
Dell SafeGuard and Response helps organisations address these challenges. It is a portfolio of next-generation endpoint security solutions that combines the managed security, incident response expertise and threat behavioral analytics of Secureworks® with the unified endpoint protection platform from CrowdStrike. Dell’s modern and effective approach designed to prevent, detect and respond to the shifting threat landscape makes it easy for organizations to protect their data with the industry’s most secure commercial PCs.
Join this 45-minute webinar to learn how Dell SafeGuard and Response provides organisations with the essential capabilities they need to protect their PCs and data
