    Eric Hanselman - Chief Analyst, Robert Mahowald - Senior Vice President, and Simon Robinson - Senior Vice President Recorded: Dec 4 2018 53 mins
    Planning for the future is a complicated business. Organizations have to align business objectives with market forces and the technology that they hope will support them. Early stage technologies can offer tempting options, but it can be hard to quantify the risk in using them.

    451 Research has distilled two years of conversations with their clients, demand-side research and the insight of their analyst team into a planning framework that can help organizations take on the future on their own terms. It’s not a quadrant, a wave or a platform. It doesn’t admonish you with prescriptive technology imperatives. It’s our collective view of the most important factors shaping tomorrow, so we can begin to plan today. It outlines trends that are pushing them and the assesses the maturity of the technologies that are behind them. We have identified four key "forces" that define all the trends we foresee: Universal Risk, Invisible Infrastructure, Pervasive Intelligence, and Contextual Experience. Whether you’re an enterprise, a vendor or a service provider, these forces, together or in part, are rocking your world, and 4SIGHT is an essential tool to plan for better future outcomes. This webinar will look at 4SIGHT capabilities and some of the outcomes that it can achieve, and explore some examples of 4SIGHT dialogs.

    The Benefits and Challenges of Embracing Cloud Data Platforms in a Hybrid World
    Matt Aslett of 451 Research Recorded: Nov 13 2018 40 mins
    Database workloads were, initially, comparatively slow to move to the cloud, but as the pace of enterprise cloud adoption accelerates 451 Research Voice of the Enterprise studies show that the relational database is now the most popular public cloud service currently in use – and seven of the top 12 public cloud services are data-related.

    As increasing volumes of data are generated and stored in the cloud, data processing and analytics workloads are also rapidly being drawn to the cloud, particular to support new data sources and applications, including IoT devices and stream processing, as well as machine learning.

    The majority of existing database workloads continue to run on-premises, however, and enterprises need to understand the benefits and challenges of running database workloads in the cloud, as well as managing data across hybrid environments – including on-premises datacenters, the edge, and multiple cloud environments.

    In this webinar, Matt Aslett, Research VP, Data, AI and Analytics, 451 Research, will discuss the latest trends driving the adoption of cloud data platforms, as well as the key considerations to keep in mind when selecting a cloud data platform, including:
    • Cloud database adoption trends
    • Cloud database adoption drivers
    • Hybrid operational/analytic processing
    • AI and ML in the cloud
    • Barriers to cloud database adoption
    • Cloud migration patterns

  • Today’s top security concerns: Are your ERP applications ready?
    Today’s top security concerns: Are your ERP applications ready?
    Scott Crawford, 451 Research & Cindy Valladares, Onapsis Recorded: Nov 1 2018 59 mins
    In recent 451 Research studies, enterprises continue to report three primary security concerns. These challenges affect overall cybersecurity strategies as well as an organization’s business-critical application security:

    •The maintenance of security hygiene is not just an ongoing issue for security and IT teams. It has become a front-and-center concern for businesses worldwide. Some of the world’s most high-profile security incidents of recent months are traceable back to keeping enterprise IT - and the applications on which global business depends - well maintained and secure. This highlights the need for continuous monitoring, update and maintenance of systems such as ERP.

    •A resurgence of compliance concerns has also risen to the fore. Ongoing requirements such as SOX continue to demand enterprise attention, while more recent mandates such as GDRP require new vigilance and highlight the importance of automating compliance and audit reporting.

    •The behavior of people has become one of business’s top security priorities, reflecting the impact of everything from insider threats to phishing attacks, account takeover and credential compromise. These threats can have high impact on the business when they target enterprise application systems the business relies on as its lifeline to critical operations – or when enterprises leave themselves exposed through gaps or drift in effective management of configuration and access control.

    ERP applications are among the most valuable assets organizations have and require specialized attention specific to their requirements to protect the business against these concerns. Join this webcast to hear from Scott Crawford, Research Director for Information Security with 451 Research, and Onapsis on how you can combat these common security challenges and ensure that the business-critical applications that house an organization’s crown jewels stay secure.
