Explore five specialized technical knowledge tracks, then choose one that fits your professional interests and expertise.
 
INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
24/7 data growth has caused backup windows to disappear, storage capacity to expand and IT to stagger under the management load. As a result traditional backup is changing and the need for transparency across the IT infrastructure is becoming crucial. How do you manage information across your environment whether on physical or virtual servers, or for example how do you effectively manage the review and retrieval of critical data for internal investigations, legal and regulatory enquiries?

Symantec NetBackup, Backup Exec, Enterprise Vault and Clearwell are changing the face of information management with more insightful search and eDiscovery capabilities, faster backups, and less overhead.

Hear how our innovations in backup and recovery, archiving and eDiscovery are helping enterprise customers adopt such new technologies as virtualization and cloud faster-- with less risk and at lower cost. Also get a preview of new releases and roadmaps including how the Clearwell eDiscovery Platform enhances the Symantec archiving and eDiscovery portfolio and its importance to the global marketplace

Target Audience
Backup Administrator, Storage Administrator, System Administrator, Exchange / Domino Administrator, ediscovery Specialist, Head of Disputes & Resolution, Head of Legal, Head of Investigations, Legal Counsel, Head of Compliance, Head of Audit, Director of Storage, IT Director, IT Manager, Application Architect, Information Architect

 

STORAGE & AVAILABILITY MANAGEMENT
Can you simplify storage management, increase application service levels, reduce data center complexity—and transform your current infrastructure into a private cloud? The Storage Management and High Availability track explores new ideas for running a data center and building a resilient private cloud with the infrastructure you’ve got:
  • Implement automated business service recovery – see how to build highly available applications on multi-tier architectures across physical and virtual platforms, while simplifying and automating disaster recovery.
  • Deploy resilient, elastic storage for your cloud workloads – learn how to optimize your storage while keeping applications available, even during platform and array migrations. See advanced features such as deduplication, compression, re-usable storage templates and priority based scheduling.
  • Acquire intelligence and take action to increase utilization and control – give our new management tools a test drive: find out your actual storage consumption and take steps to reclaim wasted storage, all from a single management console.

Target Audience
Storage administrators, storage architects, system administrators, network administrators, database administrators, server architects, application architects, data center managers, IT directors, IT managers

 

INFORMATION SECURITY & RISK MANAGEMENT
Today’s security landscape is shaped by sophisticated attacks, more complex, heterogeneous environments, exploding growth of mobile devices, and mounting incident costs resulting from a rising number of regulations worldwide. Organizations are quickly realizing that the old approach is no longer working. You can’t continue to spend more on security technologies while stopping less. Symantec understands these core security challenges and has the integrated portfolio to help solve them. Our solutions help organizations develop and enforce IT policies, protect information, authenticate people, and protect the infrastructure.
 

This track includes sessions that help organizations implement an IT security strategy that is policy-driven and risk-based, information- and identity-centric, and well-managed over a secure infrastructure. In particular you will learn about best practices for implementing a simplified, holistic approach that protects systems from attack, and secures inbound and outbound digital communications.
