Open Technologies Becomes Actifio Partner Program Member

Next-Generation Data Protection Solutions from Actifio Now Offered by Open Technologies to Simplify Data Management and Dramatic

Open Technologies, Inc., a leading IT services and solution provider for the central United States, today announced that Open Technologies has been named an authorized Actifio partner as part of the Actifio Partner Program. Open Technologies will add Actifio's software suite, including Actifio DP, for data protection, Actifio DR, for disaster recovery and Actifio BC, for business continuity, to its list of technology solutions for customers seeking data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions at lower cost points than were previously available. The Actifio solutions provide a single solution for physical environments and VMware virtualized environments including VMware SRM.

"Many of today's enterprises - both large and small - have silos of data management applications with a range of disparate tools and infrastructure to manage them," said Jay Lorenzen, Open Technologies. "Actifio's data management virtualization technology enables us to either transform these silos into a single, simple virtualized offering or solve a single data protection problem rather than deploying yet another independent silo. All the solutions yield lower cost and ease of use throughout the entire data lifecycle. We are thrilled to add Actifio solutions to our product portfolio for our customers."

"The deep expertise Open Technologies has in data protection, disaster recovery and business continuity make them a perfect partner for delivering Actifio Data Management Virtualization solutions," said Ash Ashutosh, CEO, Actifio. "Their experience and customer reach throughout the central United States region make Open Technologies an ideal partner as we continue to expand our footprint in North America. We are pleased to have them as an authorized reseller."

Designed to help drive revenue quickly in a high-demand market, the Actifio Partner Program provides access to extensive Data Management Virtualization technology training, marketing and customer support programs. The partner program also delivers a comprehensive partner platform for a range of marketing programs designed to drive long term partner success through innovative marketing and financial incentives.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
