APTARE's President and CEO to Present at Computerworld's Storage Networking World

Richard Clark to Discuss How to Manage Storage Networking Technology

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - APTARE®, Inc., a provider of Web-based storage reporting and management software, today announced that its president and CEO, Richard Clark, will be one of the distinguished speakers at Computerworld's Storage Networking World conference taking place October 15-18 in Dallas, Texas. Clark's presentation, "Careful What You Ask For: A Storage Administrator's Guide to Survival in a World of Over-provisioned Storage," takes place on Wednesday, October 17, at 4:55 p.m.

During his session, Clark will discuss the delicate balancing act storage administrators must go through to maximize existing storage resources while accurately forecasting a company's future growth. Attendees will gain a better understanding of how to maximize existing storage resources, from hosts to arrays, to reduce costs, improve their ability to accurately forecast future storage needs, and identify the key metrics and methods to use when evaluating current storage efficiency.

"As storage continues to grow at exponential rates, now more than ever, enterprises need solid reporting tools to battle and manage the data deluge," Clark said. "This up-tick is perpetuated by regulations that hold corporations to higher standards of accountability such as Sarbanes-Oxley and HIPAA. Computerworld's event provides a collaborative venue where industry influencers can address and discuss the pain points felt by storage professionals."

Clark is a frequent presenter at industry-leading events where he shares his 20 years of experience in the enterprise software ecosystem and his vision of enterprise storage, which includes bringing scalable, Web-based architectures and applications to customers. His recent speaking engagements include the Dow Jones Enterprise Innovations Conference and Data Protection Summit.

"Storage Networking World is pleased to be working with companies like APTARE as they provide a unique perspective when it comes to storage management, one of today's biggest enterprise challenges," said Timothy Johnson, marketing manager, strategic programs and events, Computerworld. "As a company on the front lines solving customers' storage obstacles, APTARE's contribution fits well with our solution-focused event."
