Relevant Communications: What Mass Notification is Missing

Wednesday, August 1, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)

xMattersYears ago you saw a need in your company for a tool that would allow you to communicate to people when emergencies happened. You innovated how your company operated in times of crisis. Instead of relying on call trees, you implemented a mass notification tool so you could blast messages out to the people who needed to know. But just as you innovated then - growing from call trees to mass notification - it's time for change again. There is new technology available to make the notifications you send out relevant to the people that receive them. Instead of sending a generic message to everyone and hoping that it's relevant to them, there is a new way to communicate. This need to provide the right information to the right people means that the communication vendor you select for emergency communications needs to do more than just "spray and pray".

Join us for this hour long webinar where we'll discuss how the emergency mass notification services market has evolved.

Successfully Herding Cats - Creating a Winning ROBO Data Backup and Restore Solution

Free Webinar Presented By eVault

Wednesday, July 25, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT (REGISTER NOW!)

In this webinar, learn to identify the critical issues to select and implement a successful backup and restore solution for your remote and branch offices. As you know, allowing the freedom of each office to select its own backup technology often results in a quick win followed by inconsistent policies, inefficient management, and poor control of this essential function. As the corporate IT function looks to drive consistent policies for data retention, it needs to assess solution security, restore speed, and ease of management. Sometimes, getting all your remote and branch offices to follow consistent policies may feel like herding cats. Further, from a strategic standpoint, you need to address considerations such as retention policy for compliance reasons and a migration away from tape or to the cloud. Gain insight into the criteria and process for selecting and implementing a winning backup/restore solution that keeps your organization purring.

Business Continuity and Legislative Requirements

Posted by: Kelly Hudson

In today's business climate, business continuity is all about ensuring your resources can work anywhere, anytime. Technologies that include cloud services, wide ranging mobile devices, desktop virtualization and online collaboration tools (e.g., Office 365) enable this 24/7, global connectivity. This trend towards increasing never-ending access to information and resources makes legal and regulatory compliance even more important in order to protect a company's assets and customers.
