  • Automation is a powerful tool. It strips time and cost out of processes, minimizes errors, and frees up skilled staff to focus on higher value activities. Most IT teams have already capitalized in some part on automation, and most IT professionals can see the potential in extending automation across the enterprise. But how do you embed automation in the company IT DNA? Where do you start in the journey from script automation towards enterprise-wide process automation?

    In this session you will learn how you can scale automation to an enterprise-level through the adoption of a Center of Excellence. Our proven approach creates a cohesive framework for automation and breaks through silos, so your organization benefits from economies of scale and the advantages that automation brings.

  • Utility Metered Cloud Recorded: Mar 30 2012 3 mins
    There is a fundamental shift taking place in the way technology resources are delivered and supported. Virtualization and consolidation have forever changed the face of computing and server utilization by promising resource efficiency and reducing the hardware footprint. Meanwhile, technology-as-a-service and cloud based delivery models are emerging as the computing trend of the future, where users pay service providers only for exactly the amount of technology they use in a pay-as-you-go utility model, instead of buying and managing sprawling environments of software, hardware, and support services.
    6fusion is an innovative Utility Metered Cloud company that has emerged in this new era of utility computing with a refreshing vision for the future, cutting-edge technologies and a unique commercial business model.

  • Bridging the gap of virtualization and physical infrastructure Recorded: Mar 1 2012 28 mins
    Bridging the gap of virtualization and physical infrastructure - integrating APC by Schneider Electric's Data Center Infrastructure Management with Microsoft & VMware

    This interactive presentation introduces the virtual integration between APC by Schneider Electric's data center infrastructure management solution StruxureWare Central, and systems for managing virtualized environments. StruxureWare Central allows end to end data center infrastructure management software for monitoring and control of power, cooling, security and energy usage from the building through IT systems. In he latest release of StrxureWare Central, virtual machine management and physical infrastructure management are now talking to each other so as to maximize the benefit of virtualization by answering the questions:

    Which VMs are on a host server with compromised physical health?
    Power
    Cooling

    Where should I move a VM, or add a new one?
    What is the best "healthy" host server?
    How do I find this place?
    How do my VMs migrate?
    When a physical event occurs, who/what will move the VMs?
    Is this an automated or a manual process?
    Effect on business process?
    In a physical event, what business process(es) could be
    impacted?

    How can an organization migrate from 25 years of desktop and application management habits to the more optimized virtual environment available today? Scott Webb talks about why organizations should think about a broader vision of "VDI" that can encompass application, user, and desktop virtualization.
  • Context Aware Desktops: The Key to Secure User Experience Recorded: Nov 10 2011 60 mins
    The boundaries between work and life have blurred and users expect consistent access to corporate services from wherever they are, on any device and at any time. This is driving IT to look at new technologies to better support the business, users and their own organizations. The result is often a combination of multiple devices and a mix of delivery platforms, and it creates a growing challenge for IT to deliver and support a consistent and secure user experience.

    Join guest analyst Rachel Chalmers of The 451 Group in an interactive session led by Jeff Wettlaufer, RES Software Sr. Global Director of Product Marketing. They will discuss desktop trends faced by IT and solutions available to address these new demands and enable context aware hybrid desktops and automated service portfolios. Rachel will provide findings and recommendations based on the latest 451 research surrounding desktop virtualization technologies.

    Attendees will learn:

    * How IT can better navigate today's hybrid desktop environments by introducing centrally controlled and flexible workspaces to provide users consistency across devices and delivery platforms.

    * The importance of understanding context beyond user name and enabling their workspace to react to that context with dynamic services.

    * The benefits of simplified and centralized automation portfolios to help implement, administer and support new desktop technologies.

    * How workspace and automation management solutions can improve future OS migrations and infrastructure changes with minimal disruption to users.

  • The Security Onion - A Layered Approach To Security Recorded: Sep 15 2011 48 mins
    Despite investing heavily in their security defenses many organizations are still finding their systems regularly compromised. The problem these organizations face is they are focusing too much on the defensive controls at their network perimeter in the false belief that this makes it difficult for their systems to be compromised. However, time and time again we see that once the perimeter controls fail attackers have easy access to the organization's sensitive assets.

    This presentation will provide attendees with a practical guide on how to secure their corporate assets by implementing a multi-layered approach to security incorporating the key cornerstones of people, process and technology. With this multi-layered approach should one security layer fail the other layers can compensate and continue to secure key organizational assets.

    Today's threat landscape and attacks are constantly evolving and it is essential that organizations ensure their security controls evolve to counter these threats. The attendee will be shown how to take a risk based approach to develop multiple security layers to deal with the current threat landscape and how to ensure each layer can compensate for another should there be a compromise.

    Relying on one layer of security at the perimeter is no longer an option, developing adaptive security controls at various layers is essential to securing systems in today's environment.
