- Solving the Storage Capacity Crisis
The problems that used to keep storage managers awake at night -- power, cooling and physical footprint -- are being successfully addressed by technology, but a more vexing issue still remains: How to get more out of the limited supply of skilled storage management professionals.
Webcast: Solving the Storage Capacity Crisis
Date: Tuesday, September 25, 2012
Time: 12:00 pm ET / 10:00 am CT / 09:00 am PT
Demand for storage capacity continues to grow far faster than the pool of people to manage it. With no end in sight to data growth, businesses need to apply technology and practices that distribute management responsibility to the people who need storage, and multiply the volumes of storage that skilled professionals can handle. In this presentation, in this session, I will cover best practices and new tools that are enabling leaps in productivity, in three main areas:
- Abandon the Craftsman Approach
- Adopt software tools.
- Consider self-service portals

- Oracle OpenWorld - The Mini-Briefing Program
IBM is bringing back and expanding its Mini Briefing program to Oracle OpenWorld.
What is a Mini-Briefing you might ask? It is a small, customized briefing by the Executive Briefing Centers, held nearby a related conference, allowing conference attendees to take 1-2 hours out of their schedule to speak to IBM experts. These are intended to answer the question: Why choose IBM for your Oracle (and other) workloads?
Event: IBM Mini-Briefings
Location: San Francisco Marriott Marquis, 55 Fourth Street, very close to the Moscone Center
Dates: Monday through Wednesday, October 1-3, 2012
