Are You Leaving Money on the Table by Not Recommending Dell EMC Data Protection?

first_imgAre you leaving money on the table by not recommending comprehensive, must-have data protection in every proposal for servers, storage or VxRail hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) that you make to your prospects and customers? You could be. Watch this video, also hosted at channel campaign playbook, explaining why Data Protection is a critical criteria when selecting a converged infrastructure solution.In 2016, Dell EMC commissioned the Global Data Protection Index report about the maturity of data protection strategies of 2,200 IT leaders across the 18 most developed nations worldwide. The results of this landmark survey showed vast opportunities for Dell EMC partners to cross-sell comprehensive data protection to their prospects and customers.You may recall reading this report, and it’s worth money in sales to revisit it now because of a key finding: While true IT transformation requires sound data protection, the vast majority of enterprises are still way behind the curve in their ability to provide that. Data Protection Opportunities Are as Big as EverAccording to the survey, 36 percent of organizations had suffered unplanned systems downtime or data loss due to hardware/ software failure or loss of power. The average cost of those losses? $914,000.Of course, since 2016, many respondents may well have deployed data protection solutions. Or they may have just gotten around to upgrading their data protection as part their 2017 plans and budget cycles.Contrary to the above, many IT leaders and their teams are still too busy fighting their day-to-day fires and juggling multiple priorities to have time and resources to get comprehensive, mature data protection in place.

All on the Trail

first_imgAt the Parksville Lake Campground in the Ocoee Ranger District of the Cherokee National Forest, there remains no trace of a crew of American folks who have united, from as far away as Alaska and as close as the Ocoee River’s nearby bank.Participants of an inaugural 2011 Wilderness Trails Stewardship Conference have intermittently packed up and parted ways for Memorial Day Weekend and will regroup on Tuesday afternoon at Big Creek Ranger Station, located within the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.This unique and memorable educational experience has been offered expense free to its first 25 registrants and made possible by Southern Appalachian Wilderness Stewards (S.A.W.S.) and The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (A.T.C.).  Camping is being provided free of charge by the U.S. Forest Service.  Women and men eat together, work together and share close quarters while in the classroom, in the field and at base camp.Bill Hodge, S.A.W.S. director, explains, “We made sure that this conference was free. We don’t want to burden people who are willing to give up one or two weeks of their life to come out here just to pick up these skills.  The Forest service played a big role in making this happen.  I know we are all leaving here with certifications and some technical skills, but the people who are here are one of the highlights.”Group training has resumed with wilderness skills content that includes Trail Leadership, Leave No Trace and Incident Management training.  A fun and unforgettable first week has included two days of Wilderness First Aid training and certification, a one-day session on Wilderness History and Legislation and two days of Cross-cut Saw training and certification.At the beginning of week two, conference attendees straggle into A.T.C. Base Camp, the headquarters of the Southern Wilderness Elite Appalachian Trail (S.W.E.A.T.) Crew, which plays a vital role in managing trails of the A.T. and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.S.W.E.A.T. crew leaders, Jameson Demiglio and Mateo Romano prepare for a summer where they will lead eight consecutive crews, overseeing volunteers (including me) who will arrive from all over the country to maintain The Appalachian Trail corridor.  The Wilderness Trail Stewardship Conference has been opened to S.W.E.A.T. Crew volunteers.   Certifications and skill sets acquired here will play key roles in this summer’s A.T. maintenance.Early afternoon, everyone congregates around a couple of picnic tables.  Class training starts with the vital component of trip planning and preparation.  Andrew Downs, Appalachian Trail Resource Manager for Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee explains, “Our work is very physically demanding, perhaps some of the hardest labor you will ever perform.  Being in good physical shape will certainly help you maintain a good attitude.  You also need social skills that will enable you to get along with fellow volunteers in often trying times”. 1 2 3 4 5last_img read more

Southern Tier towns competing for HGTV makeover

first_img(WBNG) — Several Upstate New York towns are vying for a shot at a makeover in a new television series, and some of them are right in your backyard. HGTV’s new upcoming series, Home Town Takeover, is looking for the next small town with a population under 40,000 to be their next project. “We have a very tight-knit community. I think that’s the biggest thing and I think it also wanted a town with architecture, and we have a lot of historic architecture around here,” said Tiffany. Meanwhile, Deposit says it’s looking to fix up a lot of the older homes and State Theatre while preserving the history. The creator of the video submitted for the application, Julie Tiffany, says Deposit’s main attraction is the Delaware River. “We really need the most change on our Washington Avenue because that and main street coming into the avenue, we’re talking about a gateway project,” said Jackson. “We want people to come into the town and understand our history.”center_img Endicott, Deposit, and Walton are all going for the chance to be that project, each with a set goal in mind. Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson specifically mentioned wanting to reshape Washington Avenue as well as creating a park nearby with something that no other town in the area has. She says she wants to also enhance boutique stores, so more people shop locally. Both towns, along with Walton, submitted their applications and are looking forward to the community coming together to fix up their towns, whether they win or not.last_img read more
