Our world is changing at the fastest speed we’ve ever seen. We are observing shortened time-to-market of products and services, lower cost of computing and new market entrants that are growing at the highest speed. The most important effect is that we all, as consumers, as citizens, as everyday users of technology are expecting products and services to make our lives more convenient. This is putting great pressure on IT organizations to optimize the IT supply chain. We are all seeking our experiences to be:
+ Easy to use – Simple, intuitive, at our fingertips
+ Personalized – Customizable, constantly learning about us, able to recognize who we are as individuals
+ Empowering – Enabling us to get our tasks done with the fastest speed and accuracy
+ Always on – time-dependent, geo-dependent, device-dependent

First there were slides and screen projectors. Then came dongles to worry about. Now the organization wants video. If you can’t figure out the right configuration for setup, your meeting isn’t going to start on time. In comes your “IT Guy” to the rescue. IT departments have had to learn and adapt to the ever-changing meeting room. They’ve accommodated new technologies, and found ways to implement them in a secure and efficient manner. But for IT, the cost of inefficient meetings is double. Spending time fighting fires is frustrating, bothersome, and frankly feels like a waste of time. And because they’re fighting fires, they’re NOT spending that time adding real value to the business. Learn how meeting rooms have evolved over time, what a dongle-free future will look like, and how to get there sooner.
The top causes of downtime are everyday events, like power failures and IT hardware failure…not natural disasters. These happen daily, and cause enormous headaches and huge costs for companies of all sizes.
There are 4.6M instances of data loss each year, and an average downtime cost of $5,600 each minute. How confident are you in your strategies and technologies?
SkyTech Data Technologies and Dell will cover key steps to take to ensure your data is backed up properly, and how to develop a solid disaster recovery plan.

Despite decades of practice in information security we see high profile breaches every day typically caused by the exploitation of simple mistakes. It is easy to get caught up in the marketing hype surrounding “next-gen” security products but what do our organizations really need in order to improve their security? There are no silver bullets and not all attacks can be stopped. In order to protect our organizations we need to first be realistic about our current posture, understand the threats that are landing, and identify gaps to be addressed. Many times the answer is a simple policy or network architecture change rather than adding complicated products that do little more than increase the need for security staff. By cutting through the noise and taking an iterative approach to assessing and improving our IT architecture we can give ourselves the best chance of staying out of the headlines.

From insider attackers to sophisticated external adversaries, the reality is that the threat is already inside, however good you are at defending your perimeter. A fundamentally new approach to cyber defense is needed to detect and investigate threats that are already inside the network – before they turn into a full-blown crisis.
Based on unsupervised machine learning and probabilistic mathematics developed by scientists from the University of Cambridge, the new immune system technologies are capable of learning ‘a pattern of life’ by modeling the behaviors of each user, device and network. Without relying on rules or signatures, these self-learning technologies represent a fundamental step-change in automated cyber defense.
In this session, learn:
How new machine learning and mathematics are automating advanced threat detection
Why 100% network visibility and intelligence allow you to pre-empt emerging situations, in real time
How smart prioritization and visualization of threats allows for better resource allocation, and lower risk
Perry has an extensive networking background extending over 25 years of experience, commencing with early Ethernet to today’s wireless technologies. He is current focused on the development of wireless technologies to leverage inherent mobility capabilities including locationing, Analytics and leveraging social networking resources, to ‘Monetize’ Wi-Fi deployments. Previous roles included RF Specialist, Sr. Technologist and various management roles with the US Air Force, TRW, Cabletron, Xylan and Alcatel.
The mobile enterprise challenges are mounting: enabling users simple and secure access to the network, ensuring applications run smoothly, and building sufficient capacity to handle usage and growth. A superior level of Wi-Fi design is required—something shown to be lacking by a recent report: “By 2015, 80% of newly installed wireless networks will be obsolete because of lack of proper planning.” An indication of the problem is that a wireless user is provisioned with less than 5% of the bandwidth of a wired user. This session will examine critical design components to ensure predictable performance, even under heavy loads.
