  • Research done by Frost & Sullivan shows that Managed Services is one of the largest ICT cost components for South African enterprises, and it is an area that is poised for healthy growth over the next five years. However, customers’ expectations of their Managed Services providers are increasing amidst demands to provide strategic input to support customers and their operations in the longer term. In addition, the South African market is facing increased levels of competition with both local and global players vying for key contracts.
  • Not long ago, pushing a button and immediately receiving your product seemed the stuff of futuristic movies with the likes of time travel and hover cars. While we’re still waiting on the latter, the On-Demand Economy has made (almost) immediate delivery a reality.

    Companies like Uber, Airbnb, Postmates, and more, have disrupted their respective industries by creating solutions to meet the unstoppable demand from consumers to have what they want, when they want it – and that usually means right now.

    By putting control over delivery into the hands of the consumer (i.e. do you want it now, or at a specified later time?), companies are allowing them to interact with products and services truly on their terms. This requires a deep understanding of consumer behavior and expectations, as well as the tools, payment options and customer experience to drive on-demand loyalty.

    Join us for a conversation on the on-demand economy, and how it's changing the future, and the present, of commerce.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Get insights into the changing consumer landscape

    * Learn how successful on-demand companies are effectively addressing customer needs

    * Enhance customer experience and offer better deals

    * Change the relationship between your customer and the business

    * Terry Angelos, Co-Founder and CEO, Trialpay
    * Jared Simon, Co-Founder and COO, Hotel Tonight

  • In New Food’s upcoming webinar the analytical importance of colour analysis within the food industry, as well as examples of systems that can be used for colour measurement will be explained by three industry experts; Christian Jansen, European Sales Manager, Hunter Associates Laboratory, Inc., Thibaut Dedreuil-Monet, Technical Specialist, RSSL and Etienne Arman, Analytical Specialist, Jacobs Douwe Egberts (JDE) GB R&D Ltd.

    Whether a food product is declared tasty depends on its ingredients, flavor and also the appearance of the final product. In many cases the first sense engaged when someone goes for a food product is vision. Especially with packaging the only way to judge if it’s a good product or not is optics. To measure colour hues of food products in a variety of conditions, complex technical solutions are required. Whether raw materials or solids and liquids, only special spectrophotometers can give precise data to help formulate colour and calculate values or differences. Length of a food process, ingredients, flavour and many more factors influence the appearance of a food product; with detailed analysis manufacturers can meet the ideal optical impression which is attractive for customers to buy the product.
  • Unlocking the true value of enterprise IT investments means connecting legacy, on-premises applications and systems to newer cloud applications, like Salesforce. Without proper integration between Salesforce, the system of engagement, and systems of record like SAP, organizations fail to fully automate and optimize their business processes.

    In this session, learn how to extend the business value of your existing SAP investments by building a layer of agility and connectivity that makes it possible to seamlessly connect to Salesforce, including the Salesforce1 mobile application to run your business from your phone.

    This webcast will include an interview with Eric Vitale, Senior Manager of Business Intelligence at The Hershey Company as well as Ross Mason, Mulesoft Founder & VP of Product Strategy. You will have the chance to question experts from Mulesoft, The Hershey Company and salesforce.com who developed the integrated solution, all live.

    Everyone loves free things. How can you not? It’s free! So of course, when it comes to the mobile gaming market, free-to-play games currently rule the roost. But for developers of those free-to-play games who are competing with hundreds like it everyday? It can very tough to see a return. Which is why many mobile developers are turning to in-game advertising to monetize their apps.

    Some free-to-play audiences are more accepting of in-game ads than they are of microtransactions. However, ads that seriously interfere with a user’s experience can turn them off your game for good. And if others are willing to make an in-app purchase, the last thing you want to do is scare them off with ads.

    There are many variables to consider when monetizing your F2P games, especially if you want to avoid having a negative effect on retention and user reviews. It can be hard to strike the right balance.

    In this webinar, DeltaDNA CEO Mark Robinson will be sharing the findings of their recent survey into in-game advertising and chatting with VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi about the state of the gaming industry.

    DeltaDNA questioned game developers about their most successful F2P games, discovering their concerns, thoughts for the future, and advice on best practice. You’ll hear about the strategies that are working, and discover some insider secrets on how to successfully monetize your game without upsetting players.

    In this webinar, you will:

    *Discover the brand-new insights generated from this survey.
    *Find out the strategies that successful games are using to monetize.
    *Learn what games are doing in different genres and with different player types, from indie to major.
    *How to balance and improve player retention, monetization, and game ratings using intelligent player targeting, powered by deep data.

  • In 2012, The Economist claimed we are entering the third industrial revolution based on the digitization of manufacturing, also referred to as the “Smart Factory”. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a critical element of smart manufacturing as manufacturing equipment and products are being connected to the internet, giving manufacturers the ability to gather and use new data to increase product quality and transform operations. IT organizations are increasingly involved with the management, security and governance of this data. Using real-world customer examples, this webinar will provide a practical framework for evaluating a path forward regarding sensor enablement, transaction processes and analytics considering an Manufacturing Execution System (MES) that works for you..
  • For fast-growing companies, it is difficult to build an IT infrastructure that meets the needs of today and the future. Faced with the same challenge of rapid growth at MuleSoft, we have deployed MuleSoft to decouple core systems and enable the automation of core business processes.

  • Continuous Delivery boils down to two essential elements: quality and speed. It depends upon the ability to take a business requirement from the initial idea to deployment at pace, without compromising quality.

    However, speed and quality are often viewed as opposing elements, where you can have one, but not the other. Testing is often blamed, as it is viewed as something which is necessary to guarantee quality, but which slows projects down. Thorough testing is therefore often abandoned as the deadline looms, leading to defects and, eventually, a poor user experience.

    To keep up with the pace of Continuous Delivery in “the New World”, testing needs to be made less manual, more systematic, and more reactive to constant change. In this talk, Huw Price will explore how model-based testing can be used to achieve this, “shifting left” the effort of testing into the design phase, and fully automating testing thereafter.

    Having set out the common challenges faced when testing, a full demonstration will be provided of how test cases, data and virtual assets needed to fully test a system can be derived automatically from the requirements themselves, and how these can be automatically updated when the requirements change. Flowchart modelling will be suggested, as a way to bridge the gap between IT and business initiatives, so that testing iteratively and necessarily validates that the changing requirements set out by the business are implemented.
  • AppPulse Active allows you to deploy scripts either on campus or in the cloud that monitor availability and performance of your applications. In this session we will show how Independent Health implented the tool and share best practices.

  • Le rythme de plus en plus soutenu des changements dans les applications engendre l’accumulation de cas de tests. En effet, chaque évolution est retranscrite en un ou plusieurs nouveaux besoins dans HP ALM, directement liés à de nouveaux cas de tests.
    Dès lors, il est fréquent de voir des projets avec des centaines, voire des milliers de cas de tests stockés dans HP ALM, et des équipes de tests débordées, pouvant uniquement tester les dernières évolutions avant une mise en production.
    L’enjeu est majeur, car la qualité des applications livrées s’en trouve impactée.
    Le 10 décembre à 11h00, rejoignez Dimitris Finas, Advisor chez CA Technologies, pour découvrir comment les approches adoptées par le monde industriel permettent :
    •d’optimiser et de réduire le nombre de cas de tests,
    •de mesurer précisément et d’améliorer la couverture fonctionnelle de vos tests,
    •et d’identifier automatiquement l’impact d’un changement et les tests de non régression minimum à exécuter.
  • Near infrared spectrometers have long been the PAT tools of choice for pharmaceutical and industrial scientists seeking to gain physical and chemical information from their samples. More recently, the development of fast and inexpensive miniature NIR instruments has greatly facilitated real-time in-line monitoring of multiple unit operations within a process. NIR can be used as a supervisory tool for multiple critical quality attributes of a drug product. Deviations from the acceptable ranges can be acted on in real-time based upon closed-loop control strategies.

    This webinar discusses how miniaturised spectrometers facilitate testing of different control schemes with the goal of enabling real-time feedback control of continuous manufacturing processes.


    > Chris Pederson, Product Applications Engineer, Viavi Solutions

    Chris will present the principle of operation of the linear variable filter-based miniature NIR spectrometers, i.e., the MicroNIR Spectrometers developed by Viavi Solutions. He will also share key performance attributes of these ultra-compact MicroNIR products, and their applications in the pharmaceutical industry.

    > Krizia M. Karry, PhD Candidate at Rutgers University (now with BMS)

    Krizia will present results of the MicroNIR spectrometer and its application for testing various control schemes and enabling real time feedback control of a continuous manufacturing process for tablets.
