Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Tech Panel Are you a user or business manager fed up with IT constantly telling you "No" when it comes to the devices and apps you need to get your job done? Are you an IT pro tired of having to deal with users wanting their latest bling connected to the network?

If you fall into either of these categories, or are just trying work through the infrastructure, support and security implications of allowing users more freedom, then our latest survey is for you.

Here are some of the questions we are exploring:

  • Are user preference and the "feel good" factor now overshadowing core business requirements and IT operational needs?
  • If users are operating independently of IT, where does responsibility fall for things like security, compliance and data protection?
  • Should the traditional Wintel upgrade/migration cycle become a thing of the past?
  • While business people want more freedom and flexibility, are they willing to fund investment in the necessary infrastructure and tools?

We know you many of have strong opinions on these topics and the way in which end user computing is evolving in general, so here's your chance to speak your brains.
