The NorthEast Regional Computing Program (NERCOMP) has brought together our innovative and committed community for more than 60 years. From the frontline staff all the way up to the CIO, Nercomps has created communities of faculty, researchers, learners, and institutions.
Envision will be exhibiting at this event for the third year in a row. In addition to our place on the showroom floor, we will also have a presentation session as part of this year's program on Tuesday, March 28th from 4:30pm - 5:20pm in Room 554. The topic of this session is "Simplify Your Endpoint Rollout Process for Students and Labs". Joining us for this talk will be Debra Rosenau, Controller for National Elevator Industry Educational Program.
The description of this talk is:
Regardless of whether you use cloud desktops, on-site virtual desktops, or conventional PCs and laptops, there is always a device at the desk that needs to be periodically refreshed. Ingestion of hardware, storage, tracking, imaging, replacement, and disposal of old equipment can make this a logistical headache. What’s more, student laptop programs that provide equipment to students in the field add an entirely new set of challenges that must be overcome. We will focus on the National Elevator Industry Educational Program’s endeavor to select, image, and ship 5,600 laptop/tablet convertible devices to students nationwide. Topics will include equipment selection concerns, logistical management, audit requirements, and postdeployment support. Finally, we will wrap up with a discussion of methodologies for extrapolating what NEIEP learned to on-premises large-scale rollouts.
