    IT Ops SIG Talk Series - OpsBridge API’s & Hybrid IT Blueprint for App Portfolio
    Amr Fahmy, Bobby Allen Recorded: Sep 20 2018 55 mins
    SIG Talk: IT Operations - Operations Bridge API’s and Hybrid IT Blueprint for Application Portfolio [Complete Edition]

    Join us for the next IT Operations SIG Talk to hear from Vivit member experts about working with OpsBridge API's and building a Hybrid IT Blueprint for your application portfolio. These two presentations will give in depth insight and takeaways.

    Speaker: Amr Fahmy
    Work with OpsBridge API’s: In this session, Amr will give a small introduction of OpsBridge and then will start with a basic introduction about OpsBridge API. Next, he will give a simple example on how we can call the OpsBridge API’s and start creating custom Attributes in the events. Finally, Amr will do some modifications on Events Custom Scripts.

    What you can expect to take away from this session:

    •Basic information on how API’s works and the difference between them
    •How to integrate third party applications with OpsBridge using API
    •Basic Bash Scripts or Python Script depending on the Operation system we will use

    Speaker: Bobby Allen
    Building a Hybrid IT Blueprint – Discover the right mix of public vs. private providers and services for your application portfolio: Many decision makers will say they need more information. The reality is that most leaders are actually drowning in information. What they really need is to move from information to clarity to insight. Attend our talk on building a hybrid it blueprint to see how CloudGenera can quickly take large amounts of data about your applications and provide data-driven analysis on best execution venue. We believe these sorts of insights should happen in minutes not months.

    Attendees will learn the following:

    •Elements that must be part of Total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis
    •How to analyze public vs. private execution venues
    •How to quickly revisit decisions when inputs or market factors change
  • Should More Protection Really Equal More False Positives?
    Should More Protection Really Equal More False Positives?
    Nir Gaist, Founder & CTO, Nyotron Recorded: Aug 15 2018 30 mins
    Security professionals accept the paradigm of “more protection equals more false positives (FPs)” as a fact of life. The tighter they make the “screws” of the security policies in their DLP, Web or Email Gateways, UEBA, application control/whitelisting and AV tools, the higher the likelihood something benign is misclassified as malicious. That’s why it is not uncommon to see false positive rates exceed 5% using the most aggressive settings.

    What if we were thinking about this wrong? Can we break this correlation between more security and more FPs?

    During this webinar we will briefly review the definition of false positives, false negatives, true positives and true negatives, as well as the history of “more protection = more FPs” paradigm. Then we will turn the paradigm on its head and discuss how more protection can actually mean fewer FPs.

  • Legacy Modernisation: Overcoming the Transformation Barriers
    Legacy Modernisation: Overcoming the Transformation Barriers
    Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Ensono, Kevin Stoodley, CTO, IBM Z Series, & Alex Hilton, CEO, CIF Recorded: Jun 27 2018 58 mins
    A recent survey conducted by Ensono, in partnership with the Cloud Industry Forum, showed that 89% of respondents believed that legacy technology was a barrier to effective digital transformation. Given that many organisations operate a complex technology landscape often with elements in different locations, and with core components that are regarded as ‘legacy but critical’, there needs to be a clear and simple approach to overcoming these obstacles.

    Breaking down the barriers requires effective change in people, process and technology to attain a viable level velocity that will enable transformation without being held back by perceptions of legacy issues.

    Examining these issues, this webinar will provide insight and thought provoking approaches for organisations seeking to transform their operations against this backdrop.

    Surviving OMW to OMi Migration: The customer with a well-developed OMW-based monitoring solution was faced with a challenge to migrate to OMi10 due to OMW obsolescence. Their old monitoring system was deeply integrated, highly customized and exposed to the outside world (their partners and customers) on a 24/7 basis. Migration challenges included:

    - Migration of event sources (OM agents, SNMP Trap sources, NNMi, SiteScope)
    - Migration of Service models with complex propagation/calculation rules
    - Migration of customized Incident ticketing integration (Service Manager)
    - Migration of custom applications (event archive, Service availability web portal, downtime management)
    - Minimum downtime during migration

    In this presentation, attendees will learn how these challenges were addressed and ultimately overcome.
