Enjoy a delicious cup of coffee while catching up with your IT-professional peers and visiting with our vendors, before beginning your day of education and networking.
Quantum is a proven global expert in data protection and big data management. They will be discussing considerations and strategies for (1) protecting virtual environments, (2) leveraging the cloud as part of your data protection infrastructure, and (3) ways to manage Petabytes of unstructured data in a cost effective way that maximizes the value of that data over its entire lifecycle.
Now you can future-proof your projects and your business. Audio Video Bridging (AVB) is the first open standard for transporting audio and video via Ethernet. AVB bridges the gap between AV and IT technologies.
The new IEEE AVB standard synchronizes multiple streams of audio and video, eliminates buffering delays and creates resource reservation. And because AVB leverages existing Ethernet technology, they will benefit from ever increasing speeds and enhancements backed by major consumer electronics companies, allowing the AV industry to benefit from solutions aimed at the mass market.
For IT Managers, AVB means end-to-end digital networks that are simple to design and easy to manage.
AVB advantages include:
Join your IT peers for a complimentary luncheon including assorted sndwiches, salads, and dessert. This is a perfect opportunity to interact with other technology professionals in a relaxed environment.
One analyst ominously described…“SharePoint is like a virus growing inside the organization.” SharePoint’s rapid adoption is undeniable but it raises one important question: What security capabilities did Microsoft implement to ensure that SharePoint–and the data it houses–remains secure? SharePoint’s functionality was built for business users to share information. However, business users don’t typically recognize critical security considerations. This leaves security teams with the task of layering security onto SharePoint well after deployments, or worse, after a data breach. This session will:
· Highlight SharePoint use cases and potential security issues
· Offer best practices for SharePoint security planning and management
· Provide key mitigation steps that enterprises implement to minimize the odds of a data breach

Major technology and business trends are driving increased heterogeneous and hybrid environments that span mobile endpoints, corporate datacenters, and infrastructure and services delivered through the cloud. With respect to security, how does an IT decision maker balance the needs to grow strategic initiatives and drive efficiencies while leveraging current investments? Securing systems and applications with a simple and cost effective approach for automating and enforcing security controls, establishing trust and secure communication between systems, and ensuring audit compliance is a major challenge. This session will discuss the advantages of controlling, securing and auditing systems while leveraging existing infrastructure.
Key areas addressed:
• The imperative for unified access management across heterogeneous on-premise and cloud computing environments
• Centralization of identities and controlling privileged access as critical to a successful security strategy
• The case for leveraging existing infrastructure investment and having an "leverage and expand" vs. "rip and replace or siloed" approach to addressing trends like mobility, BYOD, and cloud

Enterprises are expanding their wireless network capabilities to improve productivity, bring branch offices online inexpensively and, most important, address the diversity and explosion of smart mobile devices. Whether these mobile devices are corporate issued or personally owned, almost every IT department is experiencing unprecedented effects of the mobile device adoption in the enterprise. In this session, you’ll learn about this explosion of smart mobile devices, the problems it poses for IT, and how you can prepare your network’s architecture for BYOD in terms of scalability, service survivability, integration, application security and control, and Simpli-Fi-cation; how to do more with less.
