Real World IT Problems and How to Solve Them

Sponsored by: CDW-G

Location: San Gabriel Room

Deanne Baker - Engagement Manager, CDWG
Kathryn Averyheart - Solution Architect, Analytics, CDWG


State and Local Governments are facing more business challenges than ever before. Shrinking budgets, demand for centralized IT resources, the constant threat of fraud and data are putting a strain on already overtaxed staff. But with a marketplace flooded with look-a-like solutions and buzz words, how do you prioritize needs and identify the best solution? If you’ve heard phrases like Digital Transformation, Smart City, Big Data, ITIL/ITSM and feel like they’re the latest in a series of technologies that promise and don’t deliver, think again. These solutions can work for you.

CDWG’s Consultative Advisory Services (CAS) and Analytics Practice work hand in hand with your team to identify and prioritize problems. We identify and create manageable solutions for today’s overwhelming technology and business problems.

Join Dee Baker and Kathryn Averyheart for a discussion about how CDWG joins consulting services with analytics to align business and technology, helping organizations transform their environments from reactive to proactive.

Cloud has completely reset IT expectations with its pay-as-you-go consumption model, enablement of rapid time-to-market, and one-click convenience and speed.

Join IT peers and discover how to unify your clouds, combining the agility, speed of the public cloud with the security and control of the private cloud. With hyperconverged infrastructure at the core, native virtualization, one-click operations, and application automation capabilities, the Enterprise Cloud provides a single point of control to manage IT infrastructure and applications at any scale.

IT’s Role in Digital Transformation Across the Enterprise

Sponsored by: MCCi

Location: San Gabriel Room


Williamson County processes approximately 20,000 judicial cases annually. The digital evidence associated with these files could average 240TB. These cases are generated from 40 plus outside Law Enforcement Agencies. The biggest gap in the Evidence Live Cycle is the LEA collection and submittal of evidence for processing their cases. Williamson County sought out a web-based solution to integrate with current technology assets and provide a complete Digital Evidence Management System. The County was able to leverage their existing Laserfiche system by expanding it across the Enterprise and providing access to the LEA’s. This was able to automate their workflow processes to gather evidence and provide a secure method of viewing. Williamson County will highlight the success and show some examples of the process they went through as well as the results during this Solution Showcase with MCCi.
