  • Business computing is changing before our eyes. Physical PCs and servers cannot keep pace with the mobile workforces of today or tomorrow. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is no longer a “nice to have”, it is a “must have”. The problem most companies face is providing secure and controllable access – anytime, anywhere – to the data, applications, tools and resources required to maintain an enterprise network. DaaS is quickly becoming the leading solution for companies to adopt a comprehensive BYOD policy while actually increasing security and ubiquitous access. Join Nuvestack, the leader in DaaS technology, for an informative and insightful look at what it really takes to implement and manage DaaS as a BYOD strategy.

  • 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.

  • Every year, businesses are making the decision to adopt a Unified Communications platform. Why? The reason is simple – Unified Communications capabilities save companies time and money, and increases productivity.

    Today’s mobile and resource-challenged workers require more freedom and flexibility in how they communicate with their colleagues, teams, partners and customers. Instant Messaging, Presence, Voice and Video Calling, SMS Texting, and Screen Sharing features enable employees to easily connect with their colleagues, partners and customers. Each of these tools have an associated cost, which can add up quickly per user. By removing the a la carte price tags and contracts and rolling all of the tools into one unified platform, both the business and its employees reap the benefits.

    In this webinar, we will cover the following:

    - Typical per-user spend on Screen Share, Video Conferencing, Presence, and IM tools

    - Why businesses are moving to Unified Communications

    - Features of a Unified Communications system
