Many companies today are thinking about Software as a Service (SaaS), and whether or not it is right for their organization. Regardless of the industry you serve – medical, not-for-profit, manufacturing, legal, finance – there are SaaS applications that are available. As you look into 2018, we wanted to start the year off with a panel of individuals who are leveraging SaaS applications to help run their organization
Productivity is one of the key variables that all organizations strive to optimize. While there are many areas where organizations can invest to enhance productivity, if the primary tools enabling productivity are rendered useless because of a hardware or service failure, everything else built upon that foundation suffers.
For our first quarterly panel discussion, we’ve invited several panelists that are involved in making decisions on the investments their organizations choose to make in the areas of redundancy and recovery. During this interactive webinar, professionals from a wide range of industries and backgrounds will share their personal experiences, both the good and the bad, in the hopes that we can all learn from each other’s wins and losses. However, to paraphrase Nelson Mandela, “We never lose… we either win or we learn”.
Some key points we will cover are:
Primary concerns regarding employee productivity
Downtime experiences that have influenced your their perspective
Key risks and issues that their organizations have to address/mitigate

Real-life stories will be told of failure, innovation, and world-wide data collection. A company who serves small business has built technology that is enabling automation, rapid deployment, redundancy, and recovery. We will tell stories of cloud, security and big data in ways you have not heard before, and that apply to you and your business. Through this session we want to challenge attendees to explore how these stories apply to the way you currently operate, and by applying these lessons to your organization, how can it improve the way you deliver services, handle capacity, and design your solutions differently to perform better and respond faster than your competitors. We are not going to speak in theory about the following topics, we are going to illustrate how this technology is being leveraged by one of our vendor partners that if you are a Mytech customer, has helped keep your organization safe for years. Here are the highlights:
While not as tasty as a 7 Layer Taco Dip, these layers will do a better job of protecting your business. The 7 Layer Security Dip recipe we will discuss in this session are the default security practices that protected all of our customers from the recent news-worthy security breaches. We will also discuss bonus layers that are not part of our default security program today, but we believe that we all should be aware so we can determine if/when these additional layers will apply to your business.

Data breach revelations are commonplace in news headlines and social media today. The development of new and expanded breach notification laws ensures the public will encounter breach disclosures frequently in the future. To understand why these breaches have become a societal norm there must be an awareness of the fundamental factor, in particular the human contribution. Social engineering, is by definition the psychological manipulation of people into performing actions or divulging confidential information they would normally keep to themselves.
The press can’t get enough of corporate data breaches. They delight in showcasing the latest horror story about a business that lost massive amounts of private records or millions in revenue to the latest hack. You could be next.
Despite all the funds you may have spent on state-of-the-art security software, the bad guys are just one gullible user click away from staging an all-out invasion. To make matters worse, that user might well be you!

Isn’t that what we all want for our organizations – for IT to be EaaSy (or easy)? We hear statements from small & medium businesses, and non-profit organizations, such as: ‘We need to be in the cloud.’ or ‘When should we go to the cloud?’ as well as ‘I just want IT to work.’ The promise of IT is that it SHOULD make everyone more productive, make our jobs easier, and enable us to focus on higher value activities. Whether you are in ‘the cloud’ today and/or you just want to Make IT EaaSy, this session is for you
