  • Lessons Learned of Digital Transformation to Everything as a Service Lessons Learned of Digital Transformation to Everything as a Service Steve Carter Recorded: Nov 18 2016 48 mins
    By collaborating with the 451 Research Advisory team, this large global financial services enterprise was able to develop a strategic roadmap for deploying an ‘everything as a service’ (cloud) transformation program for its entire digital infrastructure by 2020.

    Focusing on cloud services transformation, 451 Research provided the following key advisory services to help our client build a transformation roadmap:

    · Assessment of the current state of the digital infrastructure categorized by major application workload types.
    · Phone/web surveys of client key stakeholders that identified how existing IT services were actually utilized and how they could be specifically improved.
    · Workshops that determined what the key roadblock issues were, opportunities for improvement, and planning for the right mix of ‘everything as service’ design/deployment strategies (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, etc.).
    · An industry-wide vendor/service-provider analysis for PaaS solutions. Almost 50 solution providers/vendors were analyzed during this project.

    Join 451 Research for a client case study, walking through the decision criteria framework that achieved 100% buy-in from the client’s senior executive management, identified the recommended solution sets, and provided industry-wide vendor landscape analysis. The team will share critical milestones and lessons learned on the journey to transform the digital infrastructure to a 100% on-demand, cloud-services-based model by 2020.
  • The Intersection of IoT and Payments: An Emerging Commerce Opportunity The Intersection of IoT and Payments: An Emerging Commerce Opportunity Jordan McKee, Christian Renaud Recorded: Nov 17 2016 64 mins
    Join 451 Research to learn how IoT and connectivity are shifting user behavior and payment vendors' offerings, and will ultimately make transactions far more integrated while far less visible to consumers and enterprises. In this webinar we’ll examine previous attempts at integrated commerce, discuss what worked and what didn't, and detail the drivers underpinning the next frontier of commerce. Throughout the discussion, 451 will leverage recent insights from its Voice of the Connected User Landscape and Voice of the Enterprise: IoT surveys to paint a 360 degree picture of the key opportunities rapidly emerging at the intersection of IoT and payments.
  • Extending Classification to Protect Sensitive Data in the Cloud Extending Classification to Protect Sensitive Data in the Cloud Garrett Bekker, 451 Research; David Dorosin, Netskope; & Stephane Charbonneau, TITUS Recorded: Nov 17 2016 58 mins
    For an increasingly mobile and global workforce, cloud sharing apps are an essential tool for efficient information sharing. However, enterprise IT departments have very little visibility into what information is being uploaded, and few controls over what is being shared. As a result, it is far too easy for users to mistakenly overshare information, increasing the risk of data loss.

    As organizations look to embrace the benefits of cloud collaboration, defining the sensitivity of information is critical. The combination of TITUS Classification and Netskope’s cloud access security broker (CASB) solutions enables enterprises to embrace the cloud while ensuring sensitive information is protected.

    Join 451 Research, Netskope and TITUS for this session and discover how to:

    • Increase security awareness and accountability
    • Control and govern cloud usage
    • Distinguish between personal and enterprise app instances
    • Protect sensitive data in the cloud
    • Improve insider threat detection and response
    • Protect against cloud-borne malware, including ransomware
  • LTE Network Technology: Bringing Seamless Connectivity to the Enterprise LTE Network Technology: Bringing Seamless Connectivity to the Enterprise Ken Rehbehn -451 Research, Mike Carper -Nokia, Amit Jain- SpiderCloud Recorded: Nov 17 2016 52 mins
    During this webinar, the MulteFire Alliance will provide an overview of MulteFire technology and detail how it provides a new wireless connectivity option for enterprises. MulteFire is an LTE-based technology that operates in unlicensed and shared spectrum, enabling an enterprise to deploy its own high-performance wireless network. 451 Research analyst Ken Rehbehn and Alliance members will discuss MulteFire in enterprise IT applications and share why IT decision makers should start planning to incorporate MulteFire into their networks.

    Attendees will learn how MulteFire:
    •Improves indoor and outdoor capacity
    •Delivers a neutral host to serve any user
    •Offers opportunity to cover more area and devices with fewer nodes than Wi-Fi
    •Leverages LTE’s strong security, authentication, and more
    •Supports features such as VoLTE, LTE broadcast, interface management, advanced radio resource management and more
    •Plans for the continued evolutionary path established for LTE
  • Has AWS Won the Cloud? Has AWS Won the Cloud? Owen Rogers, Al Sadowski Recorded: Nov 16 2016 35 mins
    There is no denying that AWS is the dominant public cloud provider at the moment. Does creating differentiation give other IaaS vendors, hosters, and private cloud and colocation providers a chance to compete tomorrow, and what does this mean for the choices end-users make today? This webinar will use Cloud Price Index data to connect the dots between customer requirements and best execution venues, as well as highlight where service providers should compete or cooperate with the hyperscale providers, by exploring:
    •Is there room for more hyperscale providers?
    •How important are open source solutions such as OpenStack going forward?
    •TCO of public, private or hybrid cloud options
  • Avoid the pitfalls of integrating real-time communications in SaaS offerings Avoid the pitfalls of integrating real-time communications in SaaS offerings Sean Hsieh, Founder and Chief Product Officer at Flowroute, & Donnie Berkholz, Research Director at 451 Research Recorded: Nov 15 2016 48 mins
    Communications is undergoing a massive transformation from on-premise systems that support generic calling uses, to innovative hosted solutions, allowing organizations to benefit from developers integrating communications tightly into their business processes.

    Much of this shift is causing businesses to migrate away from integration with and maintenance of legacy systems to using hosted PBX, unified communications, and contact center solutions, with the primary goal of freeing internal resources to focus on areas that will differentiate the business. But in moving to hosted offerings, they are often able to tap into increased capabilities with lower barriers to entry and faster time to value. Similarly, some businesses are using the chance to move away from on-premises equipment to adopt highly tailored, industry-specific solutions that integrate all communications into the flow of work and enable them and their customers to benefit from solutions that previously were beyond economic or technical reach.

    As digital transformation becomes pervasive, your customers expect simple, seamless, customized experiences across multiple channels at any time and on any device. Their desire for immediate outcomes is pushing businesses to think outside of the box to implement real-time communications that will ultimately drive transactions.

    During this webcast, we will discuss:
    ● How businesses can programmatically add and customize communication services like voice calling, text messaging and authentication into their applications.
    ● Key factors to help businesses select the right communications provider during the decision-making process
    ● Real-life use cases that have successfully built and deployed real-time communications such as call masking, appointment reminders, call tracking, and contact center.
