Bretford Introduces EXPLORE Teaming Table for Schools and Businesses

Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.®, a United States manufacturer of technology-enabled furniture for agile learning and business environments, today introduced the EXPLORE™ Teaming Table for schools and businesses. A highlight to the new Bretford Library 2.0™ Line of furniture for the modern digital media center, the new teaming table is an affordable, intuitive small group collaborative table with a large monitor at one end, which allows up to five students to easily connect and share the screen content on their laptops or other mobile devices. The EXPLORE Teaming Table will be shown for the first time in the Bretford booth (#2365) this week at TCEA 2013, Feb. 6-8 in Austin, Texas. It is currently available for order with a 20-business day lead time.

The EXPLORE Teaming Table is ideal for use in education: for the school library in group collaborative areas, small group study rooms, student lounges and non-traditional study areas or classrooms for breakout sessions. It can also be used in a business setting as a meeting table and a platform for presentations to small groups.

“The desire for more teamwork and collaboration among students is universal across all grade levels as well as in corporate settings but the selection of teaming tables on the market are just too expensive for many schools and businesses,” according to Dave Smith, product manager for Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. “The Bretford Teaming Table is about a quarter of the cost, which puts the technology within reach as an affordable, collaborative work solution.”

In addition, the EXPLORE Teaming Table goes back to the basics by offering a simple cabled design that can be easily changed as the technology evolves. “IT professionals constantly face the challenge of keeping up with the technology,” said Smith. “The Bretford Teaming Table makes it easy to support multiple connection types at the same time by simply changing out the cables as updates hit the market and old connection styles become obsolete.”

Each EXPLORE Teaming Table supports flat panel monitors up to 42 inches, weighing 30 pounds or less using a VESA mounting hole pattern up to 200mm x 200mm. The monitor mount features left/right positioning as well as an up/down swivel for optimal viewing. The new table also includes a Bretford Fluid Up Power System, which enables multiple devices to power from a single outlet without the clutter of power strips or the expense of hardwiring, thereby keeping the table surface clutter-free. It provides two standard outlets and two USB power outlets above the work surface for easy charging of personal mobile devices. At the same time, cables are easily managed via a security grommet located in the center of the table, supporting multiple cables that may be pulled out for easy connection with a device. Also included is a steel cable system that supports a micro-slot security cable to lock devices to the table and prevent theft if the group needs to step away for any period of time.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
