Enabling Collaboration with File Data Virtualization in the Cloud
Most IT shops have already taken advantage of Machine Virtualization to consolidate server sprawl, reduce hardware costs, add flexibility and increase resilience. File Data Virtualization applies the same concept to separate file data storage from physical hardware and uses the cloud to offer the same advantages for file storage.
Attendees of this event will learn:
- File data virtualization – what it is and how it works
- How file data virtualization addresses file sprawl
- Global access and sharing for files with local performance
- Consolidation of file storage into one centrally managed system
- Automatic, built-in backup and disaster recovery

As organizations rely on third parties to grow and thrive, they’re exposed to major cybersecurity risks.

Join our panel of experts on this CPE accredited webinar to learn how your organization can create a VRM program that’s ready and able to stand up to today's third party threat landscape.
- Find out why traditional vendor risk management programs don’t work
- Learn how to perform quantifiable vendor security analyses

Cloud…outsourcing…Platform as a Service…all of these could make IT irrelevant, so how do you prevent this? By providing value every day and by running IT as a Business. Great catch-phrase, but what does it mean? In a nutshell: knowing the services IT is providing, what they cost to operate and whether they provide value, and by staying on the cutting edge of technology even with todays fast pace of change, so that the business you support remains competitive. This webinar addresses the basic building blocks you need to run like a business: defining services and offerings, layering in financial management and charge-backs/show-backs so you understand the costs of these offerings and how to pull it all together in a way that helps you run as a business does, even if it’s only on paper.
Rob Akershoek, Solutions Architect at Shell and part of the IT4IT Forum, discuss the challenges and opportunities of running IT as a business. Running IT as a business is more than finances and cutting cost – it’s about IT quality.

Today, simply meeting the service commitments of the business consistently may no longer be considered enough.
Your business customers will over time have an expectation of increasing ‘value’ from their investment in the IT services you provide.
Continual Service Improvement (CSI) provides an opportunity to exploit the insight, knowledge and skills of your people to identify and drive improvements to your IT services that add value to the customer and begin to positively influence their perception of getting value for money from their IT service provider.
However, there is no value in CSI if the improvements provided are not focused on what your customer considers important to them. Equally, if the CSI improvements are not communicated to your customer and explained in a way that demonstrates tangible business value then this is a missed opportunity to demonstrate value and enhance customer satisfaction.
In this session, we explore the essential ‘CSI Building Blocks’ required to ensure that CSI becomes a core capability for the IT service provider to demonstrate value for money from the IT services provided to their customers.
This session will provide learning and guidance on:-
The importance of demonstrating value to ensure commercial success….and the challenge for the IT Service Provider
Understanding the concepts & characteristics of ‘value ‘
Understanding how CSI can provide ‘Value Add’ and positively influence customer perception of value for money
The essential ‘Building Blocks ‘ to enable CSI as an approach demonstrate the value provided from the IT Service providers people and capabilities
The ‘CSI Building Blocks’ include the need to apply ‘Outside In’ thinking to your ITSM strategy, understanding the importance of purpose and contribution in motivating your people to drive CSI in the workplace, the importance of business measures to convey business value and the importance of a ‘target and tailor’ approach to customer communications.

Modern Healthcare IT infrastructures are a complex blend of technologies, from mission-critical Electronic Health Record (EHR) applications to the security solutions protecting patient data from ransomware and other threats. Overseeing an entire healthcare system's networks and infrastructure, as well as managing patient data in a private cloud, can be time consuming, costly and pose potential cybersecurity threats and data breaches. That’s why fast, reliable IT is crucial to every step of the patient’s journey through your organization—and why you need a new approach to IT operations and monitoring.
Learn where your visibility gaps lie, and how closing those gaps with real-time performance monitoring will dramatically improve the quality of care and IT security that your organization provides.
