The 500 decision-makers that have already confirmed their attendance at the Veritas Vision event will not only learn about new technologies which protect and keep their critical information assets available but they will also hear a range of perspectives around utility computing – both technical and business-related. The utility computing model enables companies to respond to changing market conditions, scale their resources according to their circumstances and avoid unnecessary management and deployment costs. Veritas executives believe that the conference will equip delegates with a well-designed strategy to maximise the potential of utility computing in their business. The Vision Dubai 2005 is just one in a series of seminars being hosted regionally by the software giant, and representatives will also be speaking in Lebanon and Jordan, with the aim of introducing businesses in these markets to its data protection solutions. Highlights of the conference will include an introduction to the new features of NetBackup 6.0 and Enterprise Vault 6.0 along with demonstrations of the features and benefits of the Veritas Backup Exec Suite. There will also be keynote presentations from Sam Tayan, regional manager for Veritas Software in the Middle East, Heini Booysen, program manager for IDC; and Gavin Keeler, MENA regional director for Network Appliance. With presentations around topics such as data management, e-mail retention and information security, the event aims to help raise regional awareness about the vital importance of company data, helping regional organisations to maintain their information in a secure and automated system. According to Tayan, “As this region becomes more competitive across all industry sectors, data is a company’s most critical tool for survival and market leadership.”
