  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.

    •Understand the trends driving mobility and behavior changes in the work place, with Melanie Turek, VP of Research for Enterprise Communication & Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan.
    •Get the real story from a business that has addressed their mobility needs first hand from Adam Fishman, director of growth and operations for Lyft, a community ride-sharing service.
    •Hear how a cloud communications solution is addressing several challenges businesses face in the new work world from Nisha Ahluwalia, VP of product marketing at RingCentral.
  • We all want our families and homes to be safe with the convenience of remote monitoring, but do these smart home security devices really make our families safer or put them at more risk by inviting easier access to our homes electronically via insecure Internet of Things?

Join CA Technologies and Microsoft for an interactive discussion, moderated by Joe Clabby, President, Clabby Analytics, on the evolving role of cloud innovation and z Systems in today’s new application economy to help IT derive real business value through operational and cost efficiencies.

    Your tape and disk systems are like trusty friends – and you have relied on these dependable storage media to backup, restore, archive and recover z Systems data. And with your organizations’ digital information growing from gigabytes to petabytes seemingly overnight, what options are available to datacenters when technology leapfrogs in a seemingly regular cadence? Buy more hardware?

    Don’t be forever caught in “catch up” mode when it comes to your storage infrastructure. Attend this webcast and discover how CA Cloud Storage for System z, featuring Microsoft Azure, simplifies the process of storing mainframe data in the cloud and help lower data center storage costs to pennies per GB. Hear compelling ROI cases how re-envisioning your existing storage methodologies can help you store more and spend less – yes, it’s possible!
  • The game has changed. Due to cost savings, and the privacy and mobility needs of employees, in just a few short years companies have loosened the mobile device leash. Enterprises are now shifting from traditional “company owned” devices, to allowing “Bring Your Own Device” in the workplace. According to Gartner, by 2017 fifty percent of companies will actually force employee to bring their own device to work.

    But if you’re tasked with securing devices, how do you accommodate BYOD? Where do you start and what kinds of security solutions should you be looking for?

    In this webinar, Chris Hines, Product Manager at Bitglass will teach you how to balance the needs of IT admins and employees when it comes to securing your mobile world.
