Tom Worthington: A Watershed for the Networked Organisation
With trends for carbon neutral, thin client, wireless and open
source converging to signal a radical change in the use and
distribution of the desktop personal computer and the desktop phone,
the CIO is being presented with real challenges for transformation.
Low power, diskless and low cost advances are creating
alternatives and opportunities for the organisation to simplify their
systems. Some of the results from testing those alternatives with
carbon neutral thin client computers, handheld Linux systems and
diskless sub notebook computers will be included and discussed in
If low power and portable networked systems are set to
revolutionise the organisation, the CIO needs to be ready.
Tom Worthington will demonstrate, citing devices such as the
Zonbu Thin Client Computer and the Asus Eee PC.
Matt Palmer: SNMP: 'e's not dead, 'e's just restin'
What SNMP is, why it's still useful these days, how easy it
really is to get SNMP stuff working, and a tour of a simple way to
provide custom data through SNMP.
