  • Smart Cities from the systems point of view
    Smart Cities from the systems point of view Dr Alexander Samarin, Enterprise & Solution Architect, Business & IT Transformation, BPM & SOA Coach, Recorded: Jun 16 2017 49 mins
    Smart Cities is one of the essential endeavours right now. Smart Cities use many existing and emerging information technologies, Smart Cities must change lives of many people and each Smart Cities programme and project is a daunting task. Therefore Smart Cities must be considered as a system which perfectly delivers its desired capabilities.

    This presentation will discuss how several modern techniques, such as systems approach, standardisation, reference architecture, patterns, explicit security, can be combined to enable world-wide cooperation and coordination in delivery of various Smart Cities.

  • IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality?
    IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality? Srinivasan Ramaswamy, Co-Founder & CEO, Bambucluster Recorded: Jun 14 2017 62 mins
    Urban mobility has always been about moving people from location to location through motorized personal or public transport. However, the proliferation of sensors, smartphones and intelligent high bandwidth networks are compelling towns & cities around the world to re-think urban mobility and consider technology enablers to drive towards a vision of “smart” mobility. Furthermore, the fundamental assumptions underpinning mobility are being challenged.

    The Internet Of Things (IoT) has been touted as a promising technology enabler to deliver on a vision of smart mobility. We will examine the current state of IoT ecosystems, IoT enabled smart mobility efforts across the globe and help delineate the architectural considerations and cross-industry industry collaboration that would be essential to successfully deliver on smart mobility initiatives. A simple use case around a town/city smart mobility service will be used to illustrate our approach.
  • Top trends in IoT in 2017 and their impact on digital transformation
    Top trends in IoT in 2017 and their impact on digital transformation Dr Ganesh Neelakanta Iyer, Technology and Product Evangelist Recorded: Jun 14 2017 46 mins
    With the boom in IoT, it is a transformational trend that will shape the future of business. Many firms see big opportunity in IoT uses and enterprises start to believe that IoT holds the promise to enhance customer relationships and drive business growth by improving quality, productivity, and reliability on one side, and on the other side reducing costs, risk, and theft. In this webinar, we discuss some of the top trends in IoT including those on security, mobility and connectivity.
  • How to Securely Configure a Linux Host to Run Docker
    How to Securely Configure a Linux Host to Run Docker Kevin Lewis, Solution Architect, Twistlock Recorded: Jun 1 2017 28 mins
    Learn how to securely configure host settings and Docker Engine.

    Docker allows teams to increase the speed and scale that they can deliver software. As a result, adoption rates for docker are accelerating as more organizations are looking for ways to innovate faster.

    As you move down the path to containers, it is important to note that an out-of-the box installation of just about any Linux distribution is capable of running the Docker daemon and Docker containers, but it will leave your host exposed to many security and performance concerns if not configured properly.

    Join us for this webinar to learn how to:
    - Configure host settings to harden and protect it from unauthorized access
    - Install and configure a Docker Engine with minimal attack surface
    - Ensure that the host has the necessary integration with existing enterprise systems like SIEM and enterprise directories
  • Capitalising Your Cloud; financing options for cloud projects
    Capitalising Your Cloud; financing options for cloud projects Jez Back, Senior Manager Deloitte Consulting Recorded: May 18 2017 33 mins
    Every IT organisation is under pressure to deliver services as efficiently as possible, utilising infrastructure and services that may have a significant impact on the financial position and results of the organisation

    Historically, cloud technology has made reference to the potential benefits of transferring costs from the balance sheet (capex) to the income statement (opex). However, an unintended consequence has been that few, if any, cloud related costs could be capitalised. This may not be the desired outcome for all organisations and the capitalisation of certain types of cloud technology maybe preferred, or even required by accounting standards. This session explores this area and what key considerations can be given to the capitalisation of cloud.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There
    Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: May 9 2017 58 mins
    As part of the successful “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” series, we’ve discussed numerous topics about storage devices, protocols, and networks. As we examine some of these topics further, we begin to tease out some subtle nuances; subtle, yet important nevertheless.

    In Part Sepia, we’re going to take a look at some of the terms and concepts that affect Storage Architectures as a whole. In particular, we’ll be looking at those aspects that can help or hinder storage systems inside the network:

    •Encapsulation versus Tunneling
    •IOPS vs Latency vs Jitter
    •Quality of Service (QoS)

    Each of these topics has a profound impact on storage designs and performance, but they are often misunderstood. We’re going to help you become clear on all of these very important storage concepts so that you can grok storage just a little bit more.
