Wednesday, October 2 – Friday, October 4, 2013
Following two days of pre-conference workshops, attend the Interop Conference for three days of lectures, panels and roundtable discussions on a comprehensive selection of technology topics taught by leading analysts and a collection of your IT peers.
Move up the stack to focus on both applications and the ability to collaborate in a global environment. For apps, do you build, buy or a hybrid of both? And how do you provide access to a distributed workforce to ensure productivity and employee engagement.
IT pros have the opportunity to not only provide the tools to help get work done, they also can be driving future business opportunities and decisions. Learn how important it is to be closely aligned with business needs and to understand the needs of both internal and external customers.
Cloud & Virtualization have had enormous impacts on the way we work. Preparing the network for cloud, choosing private or public, security and governance issues, and on-demand architectures are key issues. We'll also cover virtualization top to bottom - from server consolidation to virtual desktop and application delivery to building on your virtual infrastructure to deliver a private cloud.
Networking, data centers and storage are undergoing tremendous change as both access technologies and core capabilities are shaped by the forces of virtualization, convergence, and cloud. The infrastructure track at Interop will teach you about the impacts of these changes and what they mean for the ways in which we design, build, and operate IT infrastructure.
Access to information and IT resources on an anytime/anywhere basis is today the key to productivity and advantage no matter what the mission. Learn both the fundamentals of access with 802.11ac and how other IT pros are taking advantage of mobile through use cases.
IT professionals often rate lack of visibility in data assets, insights & information infrastructure as one of their top concerns. Data and information assets are rarely constrained to an organization's internal electronic and physical boundaries. This tracks provides expert ideas and experiences on successfully addressing the visibility challenge. We will discuss other key concepts, considerations, and technologies that are essential to successfully defend today's organization from the well-motivated, equipped, and capable cyber adversary.
