WAYNE, Pa., Dec. 1, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Organizations today face increasing pressure to serve customers 24/7, protect critical business data and comply with tough regulations. At the Gartner Data Center Conference, SunGard Availability Services (booth N) will address those challenges and showcase solutions that enhance the availability and uptime necessary to maintain business operations, applications and compliance processes.
The conference will feature a presentation by Dominick Paul, vice president, Recovery Services Solution Design at SunGard Availability Services, on "Application Availability for Heterogeneous Environments." The session takes place on December 7 from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in the Augustus 5 conference room.
During the session, Mr. Paul will outline effective approaches to the IT challenge of maintaining application availability in multi-platform environments.
"Heterogeneous IT environments are the norm for organizations today as they are designed to address varying needs, budgets and priorities within an organization," said Mr. Paul. "Security and regulatory concerns may drive the need to maintain historical environments, while other business requirements leverage new technologies. These environments present special challenges in that they require different availability solutions. At the Gartner Data Center Conference, we'll show organizations how they can help ensure the availability of disparate business applications."
Another SunGard presenter will be Mickey Zandi, Ph.D., managing principal at SunGard Availability Services, who will participate on a Cisco panel discussion looking at "Lower Data Center Costs Today, Transform it Tomorrow." As part of the panel, Dr. Zandi will discuss the essential elements for transforming datacenters to drive quantifiable business value. The session takes place on December 6 from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Augustus 3 conference room.
SunGard will be showcasing information availability solutions and software tools at the Gartner event.
