Minutes from May 6, 2011, were approved as written.


Brian Dietrich Of Intel introduced Angelo Corea-Bettencourt also of Intel who provided an overview of Intel's technology strategy that touched on topics of Consumerization, Risk, Sustainability, Internet, Virtualization, Cloud Computing, and Visualization. Brian provided an overview of Intel's second generation Core processor technology and noted that the processors are branded under the Core 3,5, and 7 names.


Distributed managers discussed the proposed adoption of the Dell 790 and 990 models as the standard recommendation and there were no objections to the proposed configurations. It was determined that the lower-end desktops such as the 380 or 390 would not offer enough cost savings to justify adoption as entry-level configurations.

Tim Christian (CAS) asked for clarification regarding Microsoft VDE licensing. The question was deferred to a future meeting when Allen Bradley would be available to address the issue.


No new business was discussed.


Mike Hatch (COB) noted that when COB moves into their new building, some surplus property would be available for campus use, including multiple printers and that managers could contact him if they are interested in acquiring any items.


The meeting was adjourned at 11:39 a.m. The next meeting is scheduled for June 3, 2011.
