Bomgar, a leading provider of secure remote support solutions, today announced it has been selected as a University Business 2012 Readers’ Choice Top Product. The winners were selected by the editors of University Business from nominations submitted by the readership of the magazine, and were based on both the quantity of nominations and the quality of reader descriptions.
Most of today’s colleges and universities include satellite or remote campuses, as well as offer online classes, resulting in students, staff and systems being spread out around the world. Additionally, many universities are made up of several different colleges or schools, each with their own tech support organization. Rather than each school or campus operating as its own island, the Bomgar solution brings support under one virtual roof, allowing IT departments to capitalize on the efficiencies of using common technologies and processes.
“It is such an honor to be recognized as a company with a product that not only makes the jobs of IT workers and managers easier, but contributes to the overall success of higher education institutions,” said Scott Braynard, VP of public sector, Bomgar. “Bomgar’s unique, appliance-based remote support solution allows IT service desks to remotely access and fix nearly any computing device—from laptops to servers to tablets—whether they’re on campus or on the other side of the world, eliminating costly on-site visits. The Bomgar solution is ideal for higher education organizations for two main reasons: the need to securely provide IT support to a variety of remote devices and systems, and the desire to consolidate technology and support services.”
The first annual University Business Readers’ Choice Top Products award recognizes leaders in the higher education industry and provides university leaders and administrators with the unique opportunity to learn what products their colleagues around the country are using, and how these products contribute to the success of their schools.
“We are pleased to announce the first-ever University Business Top Products list and plan to make it a yearly feature,” says University Business Editor-in-Chief Tim Goral. “The nominations came from a variety of university administrators who have shared their experiences with these products and how they have improved the way their school operates. We hope their insight becomes a valuable resource to our readers and helps them solve their biggest challenges on campus.”
The complete list of products has been announced online and in the December issue of University Business magazine.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
