During his presentation, Brandt Karstens, vice president and director of systems at HDR Inc., will provide details on how the utilization of Riverbed WAN optimization allowed the company to accelerate collaboration and increase productivity across global offices while saving money by consolidating IT resources. To learn how HDR overcame these issues, conference-goers can attend the following presentation:
