Where the Cloud Touches Down: Simplifying Data Center Infrastructure Management

Thursday, July 25, 2013
10:00 AM PT/1:00 PM ET

In most data centers, DCIM rests on a shaky foundation of manual record keeping and scattered documentation. OpManager replaces data center documentation with a single repository for data, QRCodes for asset tracking, accurate 3D mapping of asset locations, and a configuration management database (CMDB). In this webcast, sponsored by ManageEngine, you will see how a real-world datacenter mapping stored in racktables gets imported into OpManager, which then provides a 3D visualization of where assets actually are. You'll also see how the QR Code generator helps you make the link between real assets and the monitoring world, and how the layered CMDB provides a single point of view for all your configuration data.

Ericom AccessNow For Enterprise Portals - Secure, Portal-based, HTML5 Web Access To Windows Applications, Desktops And Services

Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, today announced the availability of Ericom AccessNow for Enterprise Portals, the newest capability of the AccessNow HTML5 product family. AccessNow for Enterprise Portals enables the integration of Windows applications and desktops within leading enterprise portals, including IBM WebSphere Portal, Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle WebCenter Suite, Oracle WebLogic Portal, SAP NetWeaver, JBoss Enterprise Portal platform, and others.

Enterprise Portals, which provide company-wide frameworks for integrating data, people and processes across the organizational boundaries, have become vital communication and collaboration organizational resources. Portals must provide users with instant and intuitive access to IT resources, including Windows applications and desktops, from anywhere, using any device.

Ericom AccessNow for Enterprise Portals transforms Windows applications and desktops into portlets, providing users with seamless, portal-based web access to business-critical resources. Ericom's underlying technology runs entirely within a browser and works natively with any browser with HTML5 and WebSockets support. Moreover, it does not require Java, Flash, Silverlight or any other underlying technology installed on the end-user device, significantly lowering IT overhead.

"Enterprise portals provide answers to critical business needs. They increase employee's effectiveness, enhance the efficiency of corporate communication processes and enable productive collaboration. Consolidating access to Windows based IT resources from within enterprise portal portlets, such as Excel, Word and line of business applications, enables users to remain connected, content, and productive, wherever they are, and via whatever device they are using," said Eran Heyman, Ericom's founder and CEO. "With the central importance of Enterprise portals, the diversity of end-user devices and the pressure to control IT expense and overhead, we strongly believe that AccessNow for Enterprise Portals brings exceptional new value to organizations of all sizes and types."
