Joe Friday probably wouldn’t believe it, but police in Rogers, Arkansas are giving all of their patrol cars mobile access to a key public safety application, running on XenDesktop and Wyse laptops. Fire trucks and ambulances are also using the application to be more efficient. GPS antennae mounted on police patrol cars feed their coordinates back to XenDesktop, which are then sent to their 911 call center and police dispatch.
This has created so much more efficiency on many levels, and may be a model for larger cities’ police, fire, and EMS systems. Alan Lantz, System Administrator at the City of Rogers explains: “Before the mobile public safety implementation, an officer would write a ticket or two then have to make a trip back to the police department to file the reports while the incidents were still fresh. By giving them wireless access to the public safety application via XenDeskop from their patrol cars, we’ve eliminated the wasted time of officers driving back to the police department to file reports. Officers can stay out in the field all day long and do the reporting from their cars. This equates to more hours on the road; which translates to faster response times to accidents/calls citywide.”

CRN Magazine has named EMC’s VNXe its storage product of the year for 2011. The VNXe is part of EMC’s series of storage devices aimed at smaller businesses and departments. It can hold 15K SAS storage and costs less than $10,000. CRN named its top 15 products for 2011 in its December issue.
EMC Chairman, President and CEO Joe Tucci believes that with products like VNXe, EMC can dominate the SMB storage market. In his mind this is just one product in a bigger plan to do just that. Tucci estimates the global data storage market to be around 50 billion dollars, with SMB accounting for at least 30% of that. EMC’s main competitors in the sub $10,000 storage market are HP, IBM, Dell, and NetApp.

So, what does that mean exactly? Leaders are defined by Gartner as “companies that execute well against their current vision and are well positioned for tomorrow”. Truth is, we’ve been a private label service partner for CommVault and, quite frankly, we’re not surprised.
CommVault’s backup and recovery products and services are some of the best in the industry. The Simpana 9 suite is quickly becoming a market leader in data management and data protection. And being named a “Leader” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is sure to drive even more demand for CommVault’s products and services. And this means CommVault Consultants will also be in more demand than ever.
Being designated a Leader raises an interesting question: how do companies accomplish that? It’s one thing to have a vision and set goals- both long-term and short-term- but it’s quite another thing to execute well in accomplishing them. For one thing, it requires that everyone understand the goals of the organization. Secondly, everyone has to be clear on the steps required to reach those goals. Most importantly, you have to have the right people in place to accomplish the tasks at hand.
Congrats to all our friends and colleagues at CommVault. In the meantime, we’re hiring! So, don’t forget to check out our CommVault jobs here.
