X-change: the future of company networks / The roles of storage, cloud and mobile technologies in successful virtualisation - Presentations


3 years down the line, how will your company network compare to today?
The need to break down barriers to performance and manageability is influencing our future. BELTUG members are facing Enterprise Network Evolution requirements, provoking a number of questions and quite reasonable doubts.

The roles of storage, cloud and mobile technologies in successful virtualisation.
The ‘Internet of Things’ is changing Enterprise IT, from the network to the data centre. Today’s embedded systems are facilitating a new kind of “extended intelligence.”  Cloud-based software, creative use of data, innovative interfaces and new data centre designs will help create smart systems that can address many growing problems.

Many decision makers see the Cloud as an enemy or as a long term threat. But BELTUG members know “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll never get there”.

To share and explore the experiences, BELTUG organised an interactive session for all ICT decision makers.
The following companies registered to participate -9 June 2011 at Domain Terassel: ADMB, Agfa Gevaert, Attentia, BNP Paribas Fortis, bpost, CG Power Systems Belgium, Delta Lloyd Bank, Dimension Data, Easynet, Electrabel GDF Suez, European Commission, Febelfin, Federale Politie, FOD Financiën, G4S Security Services, Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, NeXTel, Office National des Vacances Annuelles-RJV, Pfizer ESC, Sibelga, T-Systems, TVH Forklift Parts, USG People, VDAB.
