 Incorporating Secure & Manageable Tablets in a PC Refresh Cycle
Video Symposium  
11/14/2013   687 comments

The employees you support demand the productivity and ease-of-use that tablets deliver. Early tablet adoption has cost IT due to lack of manageability and a significant risk to the overall business, because consumer tablets are not designed to meet the security needs of today’s corporations and public institutions.

Now, business leaders never have to make the choice between the user experience and IT needs again.

Tablets running Windows 8.1 with Intel processors give your-end users the freedom of a tablet that can fully replace their desktops or notebooks, or function as a companion device that serves a specific task. Dell’s portfolio of tablets can offer your organization meaningful flexibility and choice, allowing you to easily connect, access, and share in the way that is most natural for you – all supported by a full ecosystem of peripherals and services to make transitioning to tablets easy.

Register for this video discussion to learn how tablets can provide:
  • True business usability and productivity
  • Easy application access
  • Best in class security and manageability

 Tablets in the Workplace: Why They Can Work as a Primary Device
Video Symposium  
10/18/2013   991 comments

Tablets have shown the most explosive growth of any device over the past three years. Management teams love them for their portability and access to email, but broader teams have struggled with using tablets as their primary device. Concerns about application access, business usability, security, and management have all slowed the growth of tablets across a wide variety of business use cases.

If you choose a device with processing power, application access, and two-in-one device capabilities, tablet devices can allow you to meet the needs of your on-demand workforce while improving performance across the board. Consider changing the way you look at your end-user computing strategy by allowing a tablet to serve as the primary device to:

  • Increase collaboration in team settings
  • Perform more jobs/appointments per day
  • Reduce administrative work for mobile workers

Attend this event to learn how tablets can be incorporated into a variety of functions across healthcare, education, retail, manufacturing, and more.

 NBA's Big-Data Slam Dunk: The CIO's Story
Video Symposium  
4/17/2013   439 comments
The National Basketball Association has teamed up with SAP to create NBA.com/stats, a site that lets fans luxuriate in stats, not only from this season but from deep into basketball history.

It’s a big-data implementation that makes number-crunching fun -- with beautiful visualization and an interface that you don’t have to be a statistical genius or IT guru to understand. Interactive and greatly customizable, NBA.com/stats engages fans in a new way, by giving them the kind of real-time data intelligence that used to be available only to teams and sports media. Fans can find any box score for any game played in the NBA's entire history, going back to 1946. They can easily compare a player against any other player, active or inactive, from LeBron James to Wilt Chamberlain.

But a project like this doesn’t come easy. In this episode of E2 Live video, NBA CIO Michael Gliedman will tell us why the NBA decided to create NBA.com/stats, why the league chose the SAP HANA in-memory computing platform to power this big-data behemoth, what challenges they encountered while building the site, what NBA.com/stats has done for the league and for the fans, and how other CIOs can get their own big-data projects off the ground.

 Migrating to Windows Server 2012: Thinking Beyond the Box
Video Symposium  
4/9/2013   381 comments

Windows Server 2012 may be the first server OS designed to be the center of an enterprise architecture that spans traditional servers, virtual servers, and the cloud. That flexibility can be a gift to enterprise IT executives, but it's a gift that comes with a price: IT has to understand the architecture of its application delivery system and deploy Server 2012 in a way that fits.

In this E2 Video Symposium, editor in chief Sara Peters and her expert guest will look at the opportunities that Windows Server 2012 brings and the major steps IT needs to take on the way to deployment.

Theory is good, but nothing beats hands-on experience when it comes to getting a server migration right. This video symposium will explore issues of cloud deployment and the potential benefits (and costs!) of moving to a fully virtual architecture in the enterprise datacenter. In addition, we will take a close look at how decisions made in the server migration can have a huge impact on the virtual desktops being used to solve an increasing number of enterprise IT problems.

At this E2 Video Symposium you can expect to learn:

  • Why virtualization should be at the heart of the migration decision -- not just an afterthought
  • The rules to apply when it comes to scaling servers deployed with Server 2012
  • Why changes in Server 2012 identity management can improve security for your highly mobile workforce
  • How to plan storage, networking, and other infrastructure changes that will be a necessary part of your migration to Server 2012

Join us for a live E2 video that will cut through the confusion and help you understand the options in enterprise storage. Our special guest, Paul Ferrill, CTO of Avionics Test and Analysis Corp., will talk about how an organization goes through the process of evaluating storage technologies, and how an IT executive can guide the department to effective, efficient storage strategies. Invest time in this live E2 video and you'll learn:

  • Which technologies offer storage scalability, so you can avoid “forklift upgrades” and disruptive migrations
  • How to eliminate capacity-based pricing and forced re-buying of software on upgrades
  • Why the right storage management software can minimize management complexity by reducing manual tasks, optimizing performance, and reducing wasted capacity
 Virtual Technology for the Real Enterprise
Video Symposium  
2/26/2013   840 comments
Virtual desktops have many benefits, but successful deployment means more than a simple executive decree. In this E2 Video Symposium, we'll talk with a CIO about the process that can lead to a good virtual desktop decision -- and the roadmap from decision to deployment. Along the way, we'll get answers to the questions that many executives are asking as they consider desktop virtualization and its place in IT infrastructure transformation.

We'll begin the conversation with context. What use cases are ready now for desktop virtualization? How should issues of mobility, security, and BYOD affect the desktop virtualization decision? How do you weigh the plusses and minuses of desktop virtualization versus other options for making IT consumerization work in the enterprise? Editor in chief Sara Peters will ask our guest how these issues can play out in specific instances of virtual desktop adoption.

From there, we'll move to questions about the hands-on details of making virtual desktops work in the enterprise. We'll hear how this senior IT executive might guide a company through the process of piloting and deploying virtual desktops, from employee buyin to server-side rules. We'll learn about strategies and pitfalls from an experienced IT leader. Don't miss this exciting video symposium on desktop virtualization. You'll want to watch and take part in the discussion as we help IT executives learn how to reap very real benefits of virtual desktops.

The variety of devices and operating systems available to businesses today is mind-boggling. Employees are more insistent than ever about using devices of their choice, many of which originated in the consumer realm -- but just because consumer devices weren't built for business doesn't mean they can't work for business. Many CIOs are already working to overcome the challenges presented by the dizzying array of consumer end-user devices... but CIOs also need to jump on the great opportunities. In this episode, explore what today's tablets, ultrabooks, and smartphones are really capable of and how to weave them into your business strategy.
