Event Description:

As it has always been and as it always shall be, the network is the glue that binds together all of the disparate systems that span an enterprise. Far from being the mass of wires that used to define networking, this space is now dominated by both wired and wireless products as well as solutions that help enable the mobile revolution.

Security often goes hand-in-hand with networking as networks are charged with first-line defense. Security is an increasingly critical component of an organization’s risk management profile and, as companies rely more on data and systems to achieve their goals, there is far more risk than ever before. Organizations today need to secure against attacks from all angles using a variety of methods that protect the network, data systems, end user computing devices, other devices, such as printers, and much more. Enabling that security is a full-time job and security pros need to be constantly on the lookout for attacks from without and from within and help their organizations protect their most critical data assets.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that provides a networking or security product or service.

Event Details:

As the pace of change in the business landscape increases on a daily basis, businesses are scrambling to develop strategies to stay ahead of the curve and leverage technology to deepen ties with their customers. Maintaining this breakneck pace requires a steady hand and a deep understanding of technology and of the market. At the same time, other forces pressure business and technology leaders. They include a never-ending parade of security and compliance concerns that can plague even the best-planned digital transformation efforts.

Enterprise IT vendors are working hard to help their customers bring sanity to the madness through the development of solutions intended to solve critical business problems. Today’s enterprise IT market includes vendors selling products that could have been barely envisioned just two decades ago, but are now forming the cornerstone of their customers’ business and technology strategies.

The modern enterprise IT marketplace includes self-adapting security tools, overarching data management and data protection services, comprehensive hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, container-centric operating platforms that span the hybrid cloud, cloud-based services, software-defined networks, storage, and servers, self-adapting monitoring and visibility solutions, AI-driven services and devices, and a whole lot more.

The plethora of new services, new products, and new capabilities demands an event during which vendors that provide services to IT pros and decision makers have the opportunity to demonstrate what they can do, and how their products and services can work to help customers solve big problems.

This is the purpose of ActualTech Media’s Emerging Innovations Enterprise IT Summit. During this event, 1,200 or more IT practitioners and IT decision makers will benefit from presentations provided by vendors that are innovating their way to success. The goal of this event is for attendees to walk away with a more concrete understanding of the potential solutions available, helping meet their need to continually innovate inside their own organizations.

Vendor Fit:

All enterprise IT vendors with an innovative product or service that solves a customer problem are invited to participate.

Event Description:

The storage market has transformed in recent years, with the standalone storage array being attacked from all sides by ambitious rivals vying for customer attention in a world demanding more and more from beleaguered IT departments. Today, storage comes in all kinds of forms, from the aforementioned standalone arrays to systems built atop powerful software platforms to fully integrated offerings. We now live in a brave new world in which “buying storage” carries with it far more nuance than in days past. On top of the new choices available in form factor come new choices in media. Flash is now almost a requirement for many products, but that’s not enough for many, either. NVMe is now here to stay and promises to reimagine the data interface in a way that hasn’t been done in a generation. The ActualTech Media audience wants to know how you can help them reign in storage, help them with flash needs, and assist their efforts to understand NVMe.

Vendor Fit:

Any storage, converged, hyperconverged vendor or companies that provide additional services for storage systems, such as backup providers.

Event Description:

The word “cloud” has been shredded by so many that no one really knows what it means in the context of product marketing anymore. And, there are so very many different ways to “do cloud” that buyers need guidance as to what the best path forward for them might be. At the same time, buyers have heard the stories about public cloud and are considering plans there, even as they face great trepidation in doing so.

More and more, hybrid and enterprise cloud scenarios are becoming the norm, but buyers need understanding for what options are open to them. ActualTech Media cloud events are intended to showcase offerings from across the cloud spectrum, from highlighting private cloud solutions to showcasing how companies can protect their data in a cloudy world to demonstrating how multi-cloud management solutions can reign in the chaos that can otherwise dominate a multi-cloud paradigm.

Vendor Fit:

Any vendor that has a cloud product, including infrastructure vendors with a cloud play, cloud management solutions, cloud- centric data protection solutions, cloud-based disaster recovery solutions, or SaaS product offering.

Event Description:
Virtualization is so passe?, right? Not so fast! While virtualization is hardly the new kid on the block when it comes to data center infrastructure, its role in the data center can't be overemphasized. In fact, it might be reasonable to say that virtualization has enabled many of today's cloud-based initiatives by helping to de- emphasize hardware in favor of a software defined data center. But, virtualization isn't about just the data center; virtualization can rule the desktop as well via virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Even today, VDI can be a beast to deploy and administer. But, failure carries with it high levels of visibility with end users and one wrong move can light up the help desk for hours.

ActualTech Media's Virtualization, VDI, and End User Computing events help audiences optimize their virtualized environments, improve and simplify their VDI environments, and understand the plethora of options that exist in the virtualization ecosystem. Vendors that join us for these events will be treated to an audience that is constantly looking for ways to improve their virtualized environment.

Vendor Fit:
Any vendor in the virtualization, private, or hybrid cloud space or that provides any kinds of tools that support virtual environment, including monitoring, data protection, management, and other tools or that provides a hardware platform tailor made for virtualized environments.
