If the Cloud is the New Data Center, the Internet is the New LAN
HT-01
SaaS applications are quickly becoming the norm for enterprises of all sizes.  Gartner has forecasted that enterprise cloud application services will growth with a CAGR ~15% between 2016 and 2020, with a TAM of $75 billion dollars.  The aggressive growth of SaaS in the enterprise has significant productivity and user experience implications, particularly as core business applications switch to SaaS delivery.  If the cloud is the new data center, then the Internet is the New LAN, but the overarching question is:  Is the Internet ready?  Will the ‘Internet’ provide the requisite level of performance?   This session will provide an overview of Internet routing, explore and discuss the challenges the Internet presents for fast, reliable application connectivity, and industry validated end user expectations and requirements.

The adoption of Voice, UC and Contact Center platforms in the cloud is increasing at a rapid pace. However, even though cloud providers offer SLAs and have a critical responsibility to provide a high level of service, there is still a tremendous opportunity for MSPs to help customers ensure a smooth migration from on-prem to the cloud and to offer ongoing operations services for both their on-prem and cloud users. Given that the cloud doesn't eliminate the need for on-prem devices (e.g. SBCs, CCE Servers, network, etc.) and the cloud providers SLAs typically only extend as far as their own data center network, the customer is left with troubleshooting issues when they don't sit in the responsibility of the cloud provider. In this session learn more about the market shift to Cloud UC and considerations and opportunities to offer value add Managed and Professional services focused on Skype for Business, Skype for Business Online, Teams, Cisco, BroadSoft, Webex Teams, Avaya and other leading communications and customer experience platforms.

Know Your (Digital) Customer in the Identity Theft Era
HT-07
As businesses evolve to support a complete digital experience, a challenge has emerged to one of the most basic questions of doing business: How can I truly “know my customer?"  In the world of data breaches and identity theft, legacy programs of identity proofing and identity verification do not instill a high level of confidence in the end user’s claims.  New technologies and approaches are needed to deliver a high level of digital trust with your new customers as you seamlessly onboard them to your service.  Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) can present unique identity management challenges: the scale is larger, the data may be more sensitive, business risk is heightened, and a whole new category of attack-based vectors can potentially unfold – a true identity crisis can emerge.

The Power of Multiparty Innovation
HT-10
Today’s opportunities are too big for any one company to seize on its own.  They cross industries, span the globe, and require rapid implementation of fast-moving technologies. Only by bringing together a multiparty ecosystem of complementary partners can we hope to efficiently address the many facets of a complex global challenge.  This session discusses an innovation model based on “massive inclusion,” which requires that everyone needed to move a solution forward should be in the room together communicating.  Massive inclusion stems from an expanded view of diversity and emphasizes unified collaboration. It brings together everyone affected by an industry issue—from the CEO, to the warehouse worker, to the end customer—and embraces the full spectrum of ethnicities, genders, backgrounds, cultures, orientations, and workstyles.

Diane Chaleff
G Suite Lead for Office of the CTO
Google Cloud
The way we work is changing. Teams are no longer confined to single offices, but span the entire world. In fact, more than half of the workforce will contribute remotely by 2020, so businesses require purpose-built tools to help employees succeed. As a result, it’s important to build tools reflective of the way we work, accelerating productivity, as opposed to being a roadblock to getting work done. The communications tools of the future will bring us closer together and make collaboration more productive whether we’re in a meeting room, at our desks, or on mobile while on the road, and machine learning is playing an increasingly important role. In this session, Google Cloud Office of the CTO Executives Diane Chaleff will discuss the changing communication landscape in the enterprise, including: - Why users appreciate specialization in an application over one with many functions - How to adjust strategy and product design to meet team the collaboration needs Google continues to see - Machine learning’s role in facilitating team collaboration and communication, like bots and audio/visual suggestions

From Failover to Fixture: Wireless Communications for Enterprise Applications
HT-15
There’s no time to be offline. This becomes especially true as the Internet hosts more and more business-critical applications and services.  While 5G is still around the corner, the throughput available today from cellular service providers can outperform traditional broadband circuits, and is often installed as a secondary network uplink for business continuity/ cellular failover.  Yet backup is only the beginning.  Wireless connectivity is easy to deploy, and is as fast as many wireline alternatives while being more resilient against service interruptions, making it increasingly viable as a primary connection. This panel will explore the use of wireless for enterprise including fixed wireless for wireline replacement, using wireless to back up wireline, and other use cases for evolving wireless technologies including 5G and the introduction and use of shared spectrum for wireless based on CBRS.

Team-to-Many: The New Hybrid Video Conference 
CA-17
The ability for leadership teams to collaborate with global offices and remote workforces has changed dramatically, both in the technology being used and the methods used to communicate. Over the last 25 years the business world has made the slow transition from basic conference call technology to high capacity phone bridges, then to dedicated video conferencing rooms. Most organizations have stalled on the use of standard desktop, browser-based video conferencing but even the most updated and expensive video conferencing solutions have significant limitations, with live meeting participants often experiencing latency, buffering, and even complete video meeting failure with as few as 25 active participants.  This session considers  a hybrid alternative, combining video conferencing and video streaming to enable high-quality, scalable, two-way conferencing.

Atlanta spent millions to clean up the Ransomware attack earlier this year. Could the city have been better prepared? Would the damage have been so crippling? Lack of resources often lead to gaps in security posture leading to costly and inconclusive incident response ventures. This talk will use the recent Atlanta ransomware incident and how the city responded to it. We will use Atlanta as a case study in examining the costly mistakes of being underprepared. The goal of this presentation is to provide insight to IT and organizational decision makers of the incident response process, costs, outcome, and how preparing can prevent costly IR ventures. This talk will cover the following topics: - The Atlanta ransomware incident and timeline; - Incident Response process; - The true costs of being underprepared.

This session will give business leaders concrete takeaways that will help them build and retain stronger vendor/provider relationships. These include setting common goals, reviewing expectations and needs and identifying resources to help win deals and gain traction. Exactly how vendors approach the MSP means everything to the relationship. In a competitive landscape its importance for MSPs get up and running quickly, but deeply understanding the business model and finding ways to accelerate how MSPs can operationalize or monetize a service has to be done the right way so that the relationship that is built can be a strong-long lasting one. It’s not only about signing contract. Education and team building needs to happen at the very start. Onsite and virtual workshops will take this relationship to the next level. Working together from the beginning will transform the MSP business into a trusted partner. MSPs can’t just wait for a new checkpoint such as a new hardware/software refresh. They need to be proactive in order to keep relationships between vendors and customers strong. Without it, it makes it challenging for both parties to succeed.
