  • Deploying new patient record systems is more than just servers, networking, and storage. Specialized software applications, compliance and secure data management all need to be considered. Traditional technology vendors all offer partial solutions but you’re left with the hard work. Join Chris Bukowski, Product Manager from NexGen Storage to learn about a better way to deploy patient record systems that include new value-driven data management capabilities that ensure a superior end user experience.
  • The 50% decline in oil prices since August 2014 has shaken up the energy sector, with oil companies slashing investment in new exploration projects. However, the decline in price has raised wider questions about investment across the power sector, including gas and renewable energy.

    The efficient use of resources continues to be a hot issue, and technologies related to buildings, lighting and water continue to increase in prominence.

    Join the briefing to discover:
    - The top 15 trends that will impact the Energy & Environment sector in 2015
    - The role technology is playing in solving the challenge posed by global warming and scarcity of resources
    - Details of the evolution in business models currently taking place
  • New projects drive revenue. Every project is different, has different deadlines, and has different data management requirements. Delivering an IT infrastructure that can deal with the erratic workloads and constantly changing data needs is nearly impossible, let alone being confident that Finance will be able to run reports fast enough to close the books at the end of the month with no complaints. Join Chris McCall, SVP Marketing from NexGen Storage to discuss new value-driven data management capabilities designed to deliver a superior end user experience for project-oriented architecture and engineering firms.
  • Over one-third of employees would leave their current employer if offered more flexible work arrangements, according to a recent study by Unify.

    In fact, workers around the world are demanding more flexibility about where and when they do their jobs – and it’s not just a hype cycle or water cooler talk. New legislation, court cases, even a presidential order – are requiring businesses across the world to be more accommodating of employees' personal obligations outside the workplace.

    In this webinar, Unify presents our latest global research in which we quantify the demand for flexible work options, detail employee and management preferences, and outline ways business leaders can respond to the changing work environment while protecting productivity.
  • Exposure to professional liability ranks high on the list of any environmental professional’s concerns. In this webinar, industry veteran Anthony Buonicore will present five carefully-selected case studies where an EP was sued, highlighting how costly litigation could have been avoided. Attendees of this webinar will come away with steps that can be taken to minimize professional liability exposure when:

    • Submitting a Phase I ESA proposal
    • Conducting a Phase I ESA
    • Writing the Phase I ESA report
  • Online reviews and social media are a blessing and a curse. On one hand, attention on social media and online can drive business. On the other hand, negative reviews can have a significant negative impact. While reviewers have a right to express their opinions without fear of litigation, reviewers may also be held accountable for spreading falsehood that damages reputation or decreases revenue. This webcast will assist the hospitality professional to respond to negative reviews. It will provide the viewer background information intended to assist hospitality professionals in (1) distinguishing between expressions of opinion (which are protected) and statements of purported fact (which are not); (2) responding informally to negative reviews; (3) determining how legal counsel can efficiently and effectively assist; and (4) avoiding potential liability under state statutes that might apply in legal actions brought to curtail speech.

    The webinar will also overview principles established by very recent appellate court decisions pertaining to online reviews.

    About the presenter: Clifford S. Davidson, Attorney, Sussman Shank LLP, is a commercial litigator with jury trial experience. Throughout his career, he has focused on commercial contract disputes, entertainment and intellectual property litigation, First Amendment litigation, counseling in the areas of privacy and data security, and insurance coverage.

  • Construction and Demolition Waste Recycling Market Growth Fuelled by Circular Ec Recorded: Jul 25 2014 16 mins
    Monika Chrusciak, Research Analyst
    Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste has become a major concern in Europe, driven by legal requirements regarding waste reduction, recycling and diverting waste material resources away from landfilling. The gradual increase of waste and limited landfill space boost recycling efforts, which benefits the development of the C&D waste recycling services market. Legislative goals are targeting 70% recycling of C&D waste by 2020, which is a key driver for this market. The push for C&D waste recycling has further prompted waste management companies to optimize collection systems and increase recycling levels to sustain market revenues.
