Burton Group Catalyst Conference Addresses Key Technologies Transforming Enterprise IT

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - March 7, 2008) - Burton Group, a research firm focused on in-depth analysis of enterprise technologies, announced the major themes for its annual Catalyst Conference North America to be held in San Diego, June 23 - 27, 2008.

Renowned for in-depth discussion of substantive IT issues, Catalyst brings together over 2,000 attendees from Fortune 500 and Global 2,000 companies to learn about and discuss significant technology topics and complex issues facing enterprise IT organizations.

This year, Catalyst will focus on six pivotal areas transforming the future of enterprise IT:

* Building the Dynamic Data Center

* Identity Management: Are We There Yet?

* Security Vital Signs

* Everything Wireless

* Succeeding with SOA

* The New Ways of Work

"The evolution of IT infrastructure must match the speed of the business," said Jamie Lewis, CEO and research chair. "That means IT must be more adaptable, more mobile, more efficient, and more secure, while simultaneously being more cost-effective. The themes for Catalyst this year focus on this tough balancing act, encompassing many of the most significant challenges facing companies doing business in the global economy. We'll look at the business drivers that are shaping IT decisions, how technologies relate across disciplines, and what architectures have proven themselves in the real world. Attendees will leave with ideas they can implement when they get back to work."

Lewis and Chris Howard, director and executive strategist, discuss the key technologies transforming enterprise IT in a free podcast available on Burton Group's podcast site. Click here to download.
