Employees are increasingly bringing their own devices to work and accessing corporate IT resources from home. Windows Server 2012 helps mitigate potential security, use and control issues and makes implementing a BYOD strategy easier.
IT is under extensive pressure to cut costs, provide additional services and keep users happy. Windows Server 2012 provides a way to do all three and serves as a conduit to the cloud, virtualization and the bring your own device (BYOD) trend.
The workforce is going mobile. According to Forrester, more than half of employees carry at least three
devices for work. And many are bringing their own smartphones, tablets, and other devices to work, a
phenomenon that’s grown so popular it now has its own acronym—Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
So it comes as no surprise that, according a survey by SpiceWorks, 60% of small and medium businesses are
considering using a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) as part of their BYOD strategy. Many of these organizations
are relying on VMware® Horizon View™ (formerly VMware View), because it enables organizations to implement a
VDI infrastructure that reduces operational costs, enhances security and supports a mobile workforce.
Depuis la naissance de l'informatique, la technologie a connu d'importantes évolutions. Dans les années 60, le modèle de calcul dominant reposait sur des unités centrales, lesquelles ont été remplacées une décennie plus tard par les mini-ordinateurs.
As the workplace transcends the conventional borders of corporate data and telephony networks, managing business communications is becoming much more complex—especially for IT leaders. For example, BYOD offers benefits such as eliminating the need to provision a company-owned device for every employee.

Do attitudes to IT adoption vary depending on your seniority within a business? And could this be holding back adoption of technology? These are key questions explored in this paper, which compares the views of mid-level ‘hands on’ IT managers with those of senior directors within British companies.
Across both groups, there is a sense that UK business in general is too wary of implementing new technology.
But there is a significant divergence of opinion when it comes to a range of factors, such as the extent to which companies invest in new technology, stay on top of the latest tech, and understand its importance to the success of the business.
A pattern emerges, whereby the senior leaders within companies are far happier than middle managers with the status quo around technology adoption. And IT managers even suggest that this might be driven by self preservation on the part of senior leaders.
This report identifies new trends and requirements of the next-generation firewall which you must demand in order to address the business challenges of comprehensive network visibility, control and maximized security.
This white paper by Cisco explores the IT innovation which is fueling change around the world and how IT musty adapt security practices and protections to meet these changes in work patterns, device usage and applications.
Network readiness is an important factor in any new IT project at companies both large and small. New applications seem to require more bandwidth than the applications that they replace. These applications can also bring in new users, sometimes by the thousands. In some cases, the network services and/or capacity are not ready for these changes, and the IT rollout suffers.
This guide covers the following topics: bandwidth, wireless, firewalls, content filtering, proxy servers, and others.
Higher education has come under increasing scrutiny as never before due to rising costs, changes in future job requirements, and new forms of learning opportunities offered by non-traditional companies and institutions. Students and parents are rightfully questioning the value of higher education based on perceived outcomes as well as staggering student loans that in some cases could take a lifetime to pay back. While the value equation debate rages on, there is another phenomenon taking place. It is nothing short of a revolution regarding the advances in technology and how institutions of higher learning along with nontraditional organizations are utilizing these powerful new tools. These new tools include new mobile devices, enhanced and feature-rich learning management systems, data-feeding sensors, 3D printers, smart classrooms, smart buildings, and collaboration tools allowing students and faculty to collaborate just about anywhere face-to-face, virtually.
This white paper will discuss the challenges currently facing local educational entities, describe 10 exemplary local alliances that enabled connection to CalREN in California, and finish with a set of recommendations for other local entities wishing to create a successful
local consortium that could duplicate this success for themselves and for their local educational ecosystems.
The idea of bring your own device (BYOD) for connectivity has been well recognized in most networking environments. Yet some corporations are still struggling to understand its potential impacts. For them, the concept of users attaching privately owned and managed smartphones, tablets or laptops to their secure networks is a relatively new and worrisome concept. However, it is a challenge that customers in higher education have been dealing with for years as students have increasingly turned to easy-to-connect and affordable laptops as study aids.
Les établissements hospitaliers sont aujourd’hui soumis à des pressions financières et techniques pour améliorer le traitement du patient et augmenter leur productivité. Un réseau filaire et Wi-Fi hautement sécurité et fiable est le minima requis pour supporter les données, la voix, la vidéo et les équipements et les applications métiers. Mais comment garantir continuité de service et connectivité Wi-Fi pervasive pour supporter ces éléments clés au meilleur coût ?
Ce livre blanc vous guide grâce aux témoignages de professionnels de l’IT au sein de grands établissements hospitaliers. Ils y expliquent comment ils ont relevé le challenge de la mobilité en garantissant la sécurité de leurs patients.
De ontwikkeling in IT heeft de afgelopen jaren niet stil gestaan. Alleen al het concept ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD), een gevolg van Het Nieuwe Werken, veroorzaakt een verandering in de manier waarop ICT-beheer vandaag de dag wordt uitgevoerd.
De grens tussen werk en privé en de technologie die thuis of op het werk gebruikt wordt, vervaagt steeds meer nu werknemers persoonlijke apparaten als een tablet of mobiele telefoon, ook op de werkvloer gebruiken. Of andersom, wanneer de arbeidskracht de werklaptop thuis op de bank nog even voor een persoonlijk rondje surfen openklapt.
This white paper explains how you can unleash the full potential of mobility - greater productivity, flexibility, and better economics - by unifying secure device access, user authentication, provisioning, and management.
