Establishing a Strategic Platform for Data Centre Efficiency
With all the industry discussion around cloud computing it’s easy to forget that there are many things we can do to improve the overall efficiency of our existing data centre infrastructure. Understanding your current environment is a key starting point to making improvements and how changes you might implement will actually impact the overall efficiency of your data centre. The areas to evaluate may vary from increasing the utilisation of the data centre and hence getting more workload out of it, to getting more workload/watt of power consumed by the data centre.
This session will look at some of the latest platform technologies from Intel that can help lower data centre power consumption and also increase server utilisation and the cost savings that can be made by deploying the latest generation technology within a data centre. We will also look at some of the work undertaken by Intel’s own IT group in data centre design and layout and the benefits that can be gained by better understanding the facilities side of the data centre.

Forrester Analyst: Michael Facemire, Intel Architect: Travis Broughton
A sound enterprise mobile app strategy focuses on automating and scaling 4 key pillars: back-end data/app integration, app composition/packaging/promotion, secure channel from device to enterprise, and tools to simplify app creation cross-device. Mastering these disciplines delivers native mobile apps that offer consistent and compelling user experiences and brand expansion through engaged developer communities. In this webinar, Forrester & Intel focus on how mobile middleware solutions have evolved the from traditional 3-tier web apps to provide direct access to back-end data via APIs. However, the evolution to this model presents new challenges to developers: inconsistent formats and protocols, inadequate security controls, and rapidly evolving interfaces, to name just a few.
You will learn:
-Tips for integrating BYOD platforms into your enterprise app offerings
-Tradeoffs between web app portals and native mobile apps
-The gateway approach to streamline development while improving security
-Tools to provide a unified foundation for mobile enterprise application development

Today, cloud access security requires more than a simplistic secure VPN tunnel or single sign on from tightly controlled corporate applications. Users are demanding access to the cloud from a wider range of clients and directly on the cloud platform itself. From a compliance standpoint it is a growing nightmare involving orphaned accounts, infected clients, and un-auditable silos of user activity data left outside enterprise control. In this session, Intel showcases key technologies that are being used in the market today to build a trusted client to cloud connection. On the client side, Intel will present ‘Identity Protection Technology’ that will deliver strong second factor authentication using OTP one time password technology directly from the PC chip. To secure data in flight and access to the cloud, Intel expressway solutions enable federated single sign-on and web services security. On the server side, TXT trusted execution technology enables the setting up of trusted compute pools and establishing hardware root of trust between data centers. Attend this session to learn more about Intel’s 2015 vision for how to build a federated, automated, and client aware cloud.

The boundaries separating work, home and play have become more and more blurred. Mobility, once a nice-to-have capability, is increasingly important for business strategy, while, simultaneously increasing risk of theft and data loss. Companies developing their end-point security strategies have to consider office, transit, and home usage; they also need to understand the exposure that they face, which is shaped by industry and circumstance. As we look to 2011, we see Best-in-Class companies assessing these risks and, to avoid the astronomical costs associated with data breaches, implementing a multilayered approach to securing their endpoints. We expect a transition from being simply educated and informed to actively minimizing negative impacts to the business, while receiving the benefits of the new, mobile paradigm.

How to keep the benefits of mobile computing while managing the associated threats that come from losing laptops
We know your dilemma: you want to keep your end-users productive anytime, anywhere with laptops and other smart mobile devices but you do not want to pay the $3.4 Million that companies pay on average for each data breach, which often occur when a laptop is lost or stolen. A recent study by the Ponemon Institute estimates that 329 companies paid about £2 Billion dollars for more than 86,000 laptops that went missing in the last 12 months. Learn what best-in-class organizations can do to enjoy mobility while significantly lowering the risk and cost of losing sensitive data.
