    Keynote Presentation - Enabling the Mobile World: Only the Brave will Thrive  (Ballroom ABC)

    Speaker: Sanjay Poonen, Executive Vice President and General Manager, End-User Computing, VMware

    Enabling the Mobile World: Only the Brave will Thrive

    Description: We have entered a new way of working, where business moves as fast as the speed of life.

    Smart leaders recognize they must be brave—thoughtful, prepared and act decisively to execute on new business initiatives. While at the same time defend against unpredictable risks, IT investments, people and processes, and relationships. This requires a change in how we approach IT and enable our workforce.

    The next frontier for the public sector is mobility and this presents challenges as tough as the opportunities are expansive. Hyper-aware smartphones and geolocation may be a huge benefit to government employees, but what are the security implications? While the lines between our work and personal lives are becoming blurred, how do we provide the coordinates towards the solutions to mobility's hardest problems? In his keynote, Sanjay Poonen, EVP and GM of End-User Computing at VMware, will discuss the unsolved challenges in mobility, and the possibilities that will be unlocked when VMware equips IT teams to anticipate the needs of the business instead of struggling to keep up. With this rapid-response capability, IT can be an active, strategic partner - providing confidence for the public sector to act bravely and decisively so they can be proactive and effective in this new era.

    Emboldened by the levels of service they now take for granted from the private sector, people are demanding more from their cities. They are seeking a better quality of life through access to more and better services, at increasing levels of cost effectiveness.
     
    Forward thinking city leaders are looking to embrace the opportunities enabled by technology to overcome the ever-widening range of these significant challenges. Big data and related analytics delivered from the cloud to highly mobile citizens using powerful social media means of communication are mandatory elements of meeting these challenges.  Join IBM to learn more about how Governors, Mayors and other leaders are increasing the levels of services for their citizens.

    Speaker: Paul Pedron, Supervisor, Technical Support, City of Fresno
     
    Description: When City of Fresno employees started pushing to use their own mobile devices at work, the IT department launched a six-month mobility study. After looking at various cloud, on-premise and hybrid solutions, they found the perfect solution for their mobile computing needs. With ""efficient local government"" as the mayor's motto, the City of Fresno's IT department is always looking for ways to streamline operations with technology. City employees in the field had been using laptops and a VPN (virtual private network), but connection issues and lack of a strong signal in certain locations created additional problems for the IT department. Employees often had to return to the city offices to re-input data from the field. Many asked to use their own smartphones or tablets at work.
     
    CIO Carolyn Hogg recognized the need for a mobility solution. "Mobility is here, and we need to allow our users more efficient use of technology to be more efficient in the public sector. We are stewards of the taxpayers' money," she says. Come listen to Paul Pedron, senior network systems specialist, explain their challenges in finding the right solution and what they discovered.

To ensure the security of government and constituent data, agencies should carefully evaluate the benefits and risks of public vs. private mobile file sharing. Private cloud file sharing solutions can give government the ability to manage and control data in-house, while giving end-users the ability to easily and securely collaborate inside and outside the office. Join Accellion to learn best practices for enabling secure mobile productivity that delivers efficiencies for government employees, while ensuring the protection of sensitive and confidential data.
