Best Business Device Announced at CES 2014 So Far

HP Slate All-in-One does Windows, Web and Mobile, secured by Citrix

Pro at CES today. This is an All-in-One desktop device that runs Android with an NVIDA GPU and Tegra 4 processor. Why should businesses care ? Not because this device runs popular mobile consumer apps like Facebook and Flipboard ( which can work great if its OK with IT ), but because this device represents the next generation of Thin Clients with a much broadened appeal yet still manageable by IT.  The reality is until now most Thin Clients have been relegated to task worker tools accessing a Virtual Desktop and existing business applications. However this new class of SmartDisplay not only has the ability to access XenDesktop Virtual Desktops with preloaded Receiver, it can also run web apps and native Android mobile apps which are now growing at a much faster rate in business.

HP announced the Slate 21 As a result the use cases and audience for a SmartDisplay like the Slate 21 Pro is dramatically broadened. Knowledge works will find it useful as an additional desktop device that does a better job with photos and mobile apps they prefer over desktop versions. For collaboration consider how many times you have turned around your laptop to share a screen, with a SmartDisplay you can not only share better, you can swipe though slides or pinch and zoom as your accustom to on a Tablet. As more business adopt shared workspaces SmartDisplays like the Slate 21 will also provide broadened access whether it to a Virtual Desktop or Web or Mobile app.

Beyond desktops, the Slate 21 Pro will be a great device for business uses like self serve kiosks and digital signage which are rapidly growing. The device has built-in WiFi and bluetooth as well as conventional RJ 45 with Integrated Ethernet providing lots of options for implementation.

To manage the Slate 21 Pro, the device come preloaded with Citrix XenMobile for device and app management plus Receiver for access to Windows apps via XenDeskop and XenApp. This means IT can treat the device just as if its a Mobile device that can be easily configured along with apps corporate pushed to the device and secured or wiped etc.

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. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

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...
