  • 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? In a follow-up to HP’s 2014 report on the Internet of (Insecure) Things we explore the security of popular off-the-shelf connected Home Security Systems and discuss various testing techniques we used in our study along with recommendations for manufacturers, developers and consumers.
  • Mobile is changing the way we work in the enterprise. Today’s workforce is demanding the ability to access and share business files from any device. In this webinar learn why Fortune 5000 companies select Syncplicity to achieve the promise of mobile productivity and solve the “Dropbox” problem.
  • From unobtrusive advanced malware detection technologies to automated threat response and actionable mobile-friendly dashboard – manage security from any device, any time, ESET will present new solutions for securing your endpoints and new ways to manage them.
  • Looking for a simple way to achieve cost-effective z Systems for storage? 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.

  • Lee Smith (Dee Smith & Associates) and David Cuthbertson (SMS) will cover their approach and methods of assessing existing data centre facilities and management processes. Rapid changes in both IT and data centre technologies often mean that facilities and management techniques fail to evolve fast enough, with the data centre potentially being the weak link in the delivery chain of all IT services. Achieving a baseline through an assessment is critical for any improvement or transformation activity - but is not so easy to do in practice.
  • Many companies struggle with how to sell effectively with different brands, platforms, and divisions. One company, Cenveo, has tackled this challenge head-on with Sales Cloud and Data.com, working through culturally diverse business units, data silos owned by territorial sales reps, and challenges cross selling.

    There are many approaches to achieve more effective selling which we will explore with Jason Jordan of Vantage Point Performance, author of the best-selling book, Cracking the Sales Management Code.

    Jason will share best practices that drive business results and Kathy Coates, VP of Platform Sales Technology at Cenveo, will share how Cenveo:

    -Saw immediate results from bringing together sales for 3 separate brands
    -Reinvented how they sell--and changed their company culture
    -Achieved more visibility into their entire pipeline than ever before
    -Discovered new opportunities through account hierarchies
    -Gained "eye-opening" insights on their customers
  • Most IT providers have offers related to big data, cloud, mobility and security, and companies are looking at IT as the way to reduce costs and be competitive during an economic crisis. Investments in IT trends such as cloud computing and big data will rise thanks to a new player in the game: the business departments. This analyst briefing will show why companies are investing in IT, and what will change in 2015.

    Why you should attend:

    - Discover how many companies will adopt big data, cloud, mobility and security in 2015
    - Understand the current scenario of these trends in Latin America
    - Learn what will be different in 2015 regarding each trend
