Vordel Partners with Microsoft SharePoint Specialist, Syrinx to Improve Access to SharePoint based portals across distributed environments

Vordel, a provider of Application Gateways for Cloud and SOA Computing, today announced a partnership with Syrinx Consulting Corporation, a process-driven IT consulting and software development firm. The deal follows Vordel’s recent launch of the Vordel SharePoint Gateway solution to help enterprises make their Microsoft (MSFT) SharePoint deployments more secure, more accessible, and deliver an all-around improved user experience through increased performance. Vordel’s partnership with Microsoft SharePoint Specialist, Syrinx offers users the benefit of secure, compliant, and fast access to SharePoint based portals across distributed environments. Vordel and Syrinx will co-present on accessing SharePoint based portals across distributed environments at SharePoint Saturday in Boston on April 28, 2012.

Enterprises benefit from using the Vordel SharePoint Gateway's security integration to seamlessly share data between non-Microsoft applications, mobile workforces and the SharePoint collaborative environment. Additionally, the gateway is proven to improve Microsoft SharePoint performance by a factor of at least two times, out-of-the-box. The power of the Vordel SharePoint Gateway combined with the expertise of the Microsoft Gold certified consultants in Syrinx’s SharePoint Practice fully utilizes the platform’s potential. Additionally, due to Microsoft SharePoint's reliance on Windows and ActiveDirectory security infrastructure, enterprises often need to customize costly point solutions for mobile and remote access to Microsoft SharePoint. Vordel SharePoint Gateway helps IT integrate SharePoint into enterprise-wide mobile and remote access technologies.

“The combination of expertise offered by Vordel and Syrinx makes integrating and accessing data securely across Microsoft SharePoint and non-SharePoint environments a seamless process so users can collaborate, make decisions and close business faster,” said Ed Jackowiak, VP Sales North America for Vordel. “Because Vordel SharePoint Gateway provides out-of-the-box, agent-less Microsoft SharePoint single sign-on (SSO) integration with all the leading access management products, IT can maximize the return on existing investments and business users can continue to work in their established workflows without impacting productivity.”

“It’s clear that SharePoint offers many benefits, however many organizations still lack the awareness and skillsets to maximize its potential," said Luke Howarth, Director of Business Development, Syrinx "Vordel and Syrinx have a long history of innovation and as a result of our alliance together we can provide SharePoint solutions that can resolve the key concerns of our clients."

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.

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...
