Bretford offers educators the world's first laptop computer carts with a brain. The company's 20- and 30-unit Intelligent Laptop Computer carts are the only ones on the market today to incorporate a sophisticated Power Management System or "brain" that decreases heat and electrical stress while proportionally distributing power to the laptops, resulting in batteries that last longer. A special Cable Clutter Closet also keeps all power cords and wires neatly managed and stored in the back portion of each unit. Watch the video to learn more.
Not so many years ago, network closets, server rooms and data centers were designed from a “room to rack” standpoint. Deciding specifically where to store your technology typically came later in the design process. However, rapid technology refresh cycles, the need to rackmount more equipment and the desire for increased cooling capacities in an enclosed rack (known as an enclosure), have all begun to reverse that trend. Today, IT professionals are designing these critical workspaces with more of a “rack to room” methodology.
In extreme conditions, you need reliable technology. Whether you are a first responder, work in dangerous locations, wild weather, or just need your equipment to be able to withstand the same harsh conditions you do, Dell allows you to access information quickly - in extreme environments where traditional notebooks simply cannot live up to your expectations.
How do you work in such harsh environments and keep information secure and long-lasting without the fear of losing critical information? And how do you keep the information secure, yet utilize a manageable system? Download this interactive infographic today to become informed on Dell's best practices.

IT used to be so simple. Companies owned their own technology equipment and purchased enterprise licenses for many of the applications anybody in the organization might care to use. But then the cloud emerged, and mobile, and social media, and IoT; the world of IT has never been the same. Today's businesses are software-driven enterprises with technology capability distributed throughout the company, utilizing countless third-party cloud-based applications. This new organization requires an cultural shift in the IT organization.

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions.
Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles.
Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime. Download th
Research and Education (R&E) networks are experiencing a surge in capacity demand as a result of the massive growth of streaming media (Netflix, Facebook, YouTube), growing utilization of public cloud services, and the continued need to support large scientific data file transfers for researchers collaborating around the globe. This increase in traffic is driving many operators to evaluate network backbone upgrades to 100G. Upgrading is necessary but costly. But what if operators could upgrade their R&E networks to 100G for 50 percent less CAPEX investment and extend the life of the existing routers, while actually simplifying the architecture to enable lower operational costs?

To accommodate increasingly dense technology environments, increasingly critical business applications, and increasingly stringent service level demands, data centers are typically engineered to deliver the highest-affordable availability levels facility-wide. Within this monolithic design approach, the same levels of mechanical, electrical, and IT infrastructure are installed to support systems and applications regardless of their criticality or business risk if unplanned downtime occurs. Typically, high redundancy designs are deployed in order to provide for all eventualities. The result, in many instances, is to unnecessarily drive up both upfront construction or retro-fitting costs and ongoing operating expenses.

If you are a healthcare professional, then you and your organization are caught between the horns of compliance and improving the patient experience. With the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) now in full effect, the days of lax enforcement are over. First-time penalties or violations can reach up to $250,000. The transition to EMR/EHR use, along with all of the systems and equipment upgrading that entails, will be done and done well – or else. Penalties can also extend to your organization’s business associates.
Many CISOs admit to trepidation about the state of cybersecurity within their organizations. Why? Aside from the increasingly dangerous threat landscape, many large organizations face other security challenges, including personnel shortages, an overwhelming number of manual processes, and technology complexity.
Beyond these issues however, CISOs also face the progressively difficult responsibility of securing the distributed enterprise. Aside from PCs, departmental file servers, and remote office equipment, the distributed enterprise now includes recent IT additions like mobile computing, SaaS applications, and hybrid cloud infrastructure. In aggregate, this increasingly distributed infrastructure makes information security more cumbersome.

In today’s global economy, innovation matters. For teams to innovate rapidly and with great frequency, they must be able to clearly communicate and closely collaborate.
Miscommunication, misunderstanding and misinterpretation only leads to costly errors, bottlenecked business processes and market misfires. Most of these issues are avoidable.
A convergence of low-cost but high-quality technology and a
highly competitive business environment is making video
collaboration a channel of choice for today’s information
workers and decision makers. The availability of relatively
