  • Building a SOA Governance Program
    Building a SOA Governance Program
    Anne Thomas Manes, VP & Research Director, Burton Group Research, Gartner, Inc. Recorded: Mar 3 2010 45 mins
    Effective governance is a critical element in fostering a successful service oriented architecture (SOA) initiative. SOA governance directs the SOA initiative and helps ensure that it delivers value to the business. Unfortunately, numerous interviews with Burton Group clients reveal that many organizations don’t know which aspects of the SOA initiative to govern or how best to govern them. This session presents a framework for developing a SOA governance program.
  • Server Virtualization:  Maturity Brings Complexity
    Server Virtualization: Maturity Brings Complexity
    Richard Jones VP & Service Director at Burton Group Recorded: Jan 21 2010 51 mins
    Server virtualization has matured to the level of enterprise production deployment resulting in increased complexity as it is integration into the enterprise data center environment. Mission critical workloads are being deployed in virtual environments in order to gain the flexibility and cost savings that server virtualization affords, however, these workloads demand enterprise level management and tight security controls that have heretofore not been required of virtual environments. In this presentation, Burton Group’s Data Center Strategies Service Director Richard Jones will walk through the trends and issues facing server virtualization as it finds its way into the production data center.
  • Leverage Data from Disparate Silos for Config and Change Mgmt.
    Leverage Data from Disparate Silos for Config and Change Mgmt.
    Lyn Robison, Research Director at Burton Group Recorded: Jan 14 2010 49 mins
    Successful Configuration and Change Management requires data from multiple sources. In addition to the configuration data that typically lives in the CMDB, to get a complete picture you must often pull together supplemental information about software applications. Information about software applications comes from diverse IT groups such as Operations, Security, Finance, Data Management, Help Desk, Project Management, and Enterprise Architecture. Each of these groups typically maintains a silo of their own information about software applications, which information could be quite valuable for Configuration and Change Management processes. You can’t force these groups to get rid of their own silos of information about software, so how can Configuration and Change Management processes use their data effectively? This presentation explains a case study in federating and harmonizing data about software applications from multiple silos.
  • Electronic Discovery: What's the Impact?
    Electronic Discovery: What's the Impact?
    Trent Henry, Principal Analyst at Burton Group Recorded: Dec 10 2009 45 mins
    Although it's been more than two years since the Supreme Court modified the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP)--which greatly elevated the status of electronically stored information for court cases--most organizations are still struggling to get their arms around the critical elements of eDiscovery. Many security and compliance teams have spent their careers justifiably focused on protecting information’s confidentiality; ensuring data availability and discoverability is a whole new game. This talk will review the major snags and snarls caused by eDiscovery and present both a maturity model and industry trends around the impact of electronic discovery.
  • Enabling Mobility without Compromising Security
    Enabling Mobility without Compromising Security
    Eric Maiwald, Vice President and Research Director at Burton Group Recorded: Dec 8 2009 47 mins
    Today’s workforce is increasingly on the move and enterprises must meet the demands for secure access to information systems to support new business models. No longer can the enterprise dictate what device the employee will use for access – devices may be enterprise owned but enterprises must also support employee-owned and even or public access devices. The mobile workforce also includes non-employees that perform valuable services for the organization, and need limited access to protected systems.

    This talk will address:

    • Use cases for mobile workers
    • Technical solutions that may assist in managing the risk to the enterprise
    • Deployment considerations that enterprises should take into account
