The proliferation of personally owned mobile devices and social technologies are changing the way employees do work, and IT must adapt as well. Unified communications, video, mobile and social networking are driving the shift today, "but their real value may still lie ahead as these technologies come together to truly redefine the work experience." Participants in this session will give their take on the future of work in the enterprise.

3:30 p.m. Virtualization security and compliance
Moving from physical to virtual infrastructure can create gaps in compliance, requiring new frameworks to secure virtual data centers and private clouds. This panel will discuss specific regulatory areas such as FISMA, DIACAP, PCI, HIPAA and SOX/GLBA, and examine how physical security constructs like "zones" can be applied to virtual infrastructure. The coupling of hypervisor security architectures with virtual machine introspection and automation to provide greater insight into security will also be on the agenda.
