IT Tracks Today’s most important topics in IT covered in depth, in a single day. 1. Cloud & Virtualization Roadmap

2. Convergence & Wireless Roadmap

Cloud Computing and Virtualization: How the Global 2000 Are Evolving Their IT Infrastructure

Crucial Intersection: IT Converges Applications, Services, & Infrastructure to Support the Distributed Enterprise

Ken Male, Executive Vice Chairman and Founder, TheInfoPro How are the Global 2000 transforming their IT infrastructure to contemporary models? How is virtualization a key building block in the transformation? Why are public and private clouds increasing in popularity? And what lessons are the Global 2000 learning? In this session, TheInfoPro’s Ken Male will present findings from thousands of one-on-one interviews with Global 2000 IT decision makers, many of which cite the move as the foundation for unified global service and application delivery with the a goal of getting the IT infrastructure out of the way of the application and user communities. You’ll learn how these organizations are evolving their infrastructure to the use of internal and external cloud architectures -- and you’ll find out how virtualization is playing a key role in the evolution.

Robin Gareiss, Network World Columnist; Executive Vice President and Sr. Founding Partner, Nemertes Research The convergence of all types of traffic over wireless and wireline infrastructure is vital to improving competitiveness. A growing virtual workforce requires access to data and applications in central data centers. Ballooning demand for highspeed voice, data, and multimedia applications available to any device at any location increase the need for a robust network. IT, networking, and applications teams must, therefore, provide a reliable, robust communications infrastructure, supporting a variety of integrated applications, including voice, high-definition video, Web conferencing, streaming media, text messaging, Web 2.0, and more. This session will provide best practices recommendations to answer: Which WAN, wireless, and mobile technologies make the most sense for your organization? What should be in your branch and mobility strategies? What unified communications and collaboration architectures should you deploy? How difficult is integration among vendors? When should you rely upon managed service providers? Learn how to architect and implement effective converged communications for your organization.

3. Data Center Roadmap Architecting for Data Center Agility Ted Ritter, Senior Research Analyst, Nemertes Research Business needs and technological advances pull the data center in more directions all the time, and require it to change directions quickly and cleanly. To meet these challenges, IT must reassess and re-imagine its data center strategies. By making wise and flexible use of the spectrum of sourcing options available, from do-ityourself to infrastructure-as-a-service, IT must put agility, risk management, and cost management at the center of its thinking about how to provision and deliver services. This session will explore current trends in data centers, examine how enterprises should make choices about sourcing, and discuss the roadmap for re-architecting the in-house data center in ways that allow it to scale services up or down on the fly, to waste fewer resources (power, space, human), and to turn on a dime to pursue new opportunities or abandon failed strategies.

4. Managing, Controlling & Optimizing Application Delivery Roadmap Managing, Controlling and Optimizing Application Delivery Jim Metzler, Network World Columnist; President, Ashton Metzler & Associates It was only a few years ago that IT organizations began to systematically focus on ensuring acceptable application delivery. They did so by deploying a first generation of solutions that were intended to mitigate the impact of chatty protocols such as CIFS (Common Internet File System), to offload from servers computationally intensive processing such as TCP termination and multiplexing, and to provide visibility into the performance of applications. While these solutions continue to play an important role, additional challenges – and solutions – are emerging to deal with the issues raised by server, desktop and storage virtualization as well as public and private cloud computing. In this session, you’ll understand some of the new and long-standing application delivery challenges -- and how to apply contemporary strategies and solutions to your best advantage.

5. The Secure Enterprise Roadmap Securing Against the Evolving Threat Landscape Andreas Antonopoulos, Network World Columnist; Senior Vice President & Founding Partner, Nemertes Research In their constant arms race with cyber-criminals, security professionals must refresh and broaden their knowledge. New technologies and applications—cloud computing, social computing, rich internet applications and collaboration—make that a constant and growing challenge. Continuing changes in building and delivering applications demand new security strategies, architectures and technologies, forcing us to re-evaluate everything we knew about security: perimeter defenses, defensein-depth, compliance and audit. What are your most critical assets? Where do you apply security devices and controls? How do you manage risk and without sacrificing agility? This session provides actionable guidance on how best to protect critical assets in the face of ever-increasing threats. Beyond exploring security trends and best practices, it lays out a critical roadmap to refocused, improved security for enterprises facing rising compliance burdens while increasingly mixing in-house and outsourced services, federating with partners and suppliers, and providing ever greater access and services to users.
