Have Branch/Satellite Office IT to Set Up? Join us at SYN309 for blueprint and best practices @Synergy2017

Do any of these sound like your challenge? A bank that needs to absorb new branch offices due to a recent M&A activity. Or a retail store that needs to set up retail branches during the holiday season. Or perhaps an education institute that is setting up remote campuses and classrooms to accommodate international students or student and working professionals attending night classes. Or a medical facility that is expanding services to other locations with new clinics.

If you have to set up IT for these new branch or satellite offices within a short time, bringing digital workspace to your end users while taking into account the need for user experience, and app/data security, availability and high performance, how would you tackle the request? Oh, and you are not getting a lot of resources to help you.

For insights and best practices to how, join us at Synergy 2017 for SYN309 Blueprint for Easy, Fast and Cost-effective Branch Office Setup session on May 23, where we will discuss the blueprint for building a modern virtual workspace for your branch offices. In addition to IT centralization and app virtualization, the discussion will include adding hyperconverged appliances and software-defined storage solutions as an important component to drive cost and complexity down while enhancing user and administrator experience.
