  • Is Agile Dead? Is Agile Dead? Will Iverson Recorded: Aug 29 2016 80 mins
    Is Agile Dead?

    In an industry that loves the buzzword, none seems to be thrown about as often as Agile. Agile’s principles and process are broad, and the term is frequently misapplied, but the benefits of agile can’t be understated - eliminating “Waterfall” development, reducing risk for companies that adopt it, and creating a good work and team dynamic for developers worldwide.

    Nowadays, though, simply being “Agile” doesn’t fully enable rapid and consistent delivery of software at scale. True agility doesn’t only arise from process, it also needs to be supported by tools and methodology. The core best practices from the Agile Manifesto still hold.

    - Ship often
    - Talk to product / business owners
    - Pivot when needed

    A modern development team will always benefit from holding these tenets. However, unless you have a good Continuous Delivery framework behind your development team, you may find that you’re working harder than you need to to meet demands in today’s environment.

    In this seminar, Dev9’s Will Iverson will discuss the process and tools that can help to make sure that “Agile” actually provides you and your team with a solid delivery strategy, instead of just a nice label. We’ll discuss how you can automate and accelerate the parts of the process that drag teams down and increase cost. If Agile is dead, what it needs is a resurrection, not just an autopsy!
  • The Role of FPGAs in SparK Accelerators The Role of FPGAs in SparK Accelerators Shreyas Shah, Principal Data center Architect, Xilinx Recorded: Aug 29 2016 61 mins
    In the cloud computing era, data growth is exponential. Every day billions of photos are shared and large amount of new data created in multiple formats. Within this cloud of data, the relevant data with real monetary value is small. To extract the valuable data, big data analytics frame works like SparK is used. This can run on top of a variety of file systems and data bases. To accelerate the SparK by 10-1000x, customers are creating solutions like log file accelerators, storage layer accelerators, MLLIB (One of the SparK library) accelerators, and SQL accelerators etc.

    FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) are the ideal fit for these type of accelerators where the workloads are constantly changing. For example, they can accelerate different algorithms on different data based on end users and the time of the day, but keep the same hardware.

    This webinar will describe the role of FPGAs in SparK accelerators and give SparK accelerator use cases.
  • Introduction to Parallel Testing with JUnit, Selenium & Sauce Labs Introduction to Parallel Testing with JUnit, Selenium & Sauce Labs David Drake, Solutions Architect Recorded: Aug 29 2016 66 mins
    At Dev9, we love to solve complex challenges, and we love learning new technology while doing it! One of the biggest challenges today is managing the explosion of test cases which must be executed repetitively as a result of combinatorial test factors. Some of these factors include...

    - Multiple browsers (varying by version, operating system, desktop & mobile)
    - Self-updating browsers
    - Multiple languages & locales
    - Different branding on similar sites

    It's easy for all of these factors to result in an explosion of testable combinations. How do you describe these combinations, queue them for execution, and link them to test results in your continuous integration server? How do you design it to be extensible and maintainable?

    In this presentation, we will discuss our real world techniques for combinatorial testing with Selenium and JUnit, leveraging on-demand resources from Sauce Labs. We will describe successes and challenges encountered along the way. We will discuss concrete problems (and solutions) encountered in Selenium framework design for both a major retailer with multiple simultaneous brand launches, and performance testing involved in the successful launch of a new consumer device used by millions.

  • Don’t Buy the Healthcare IT “Snake Oil”! Don’t Buy the Healthcare IT “Snake Oil”! Marion Jenkins, Healthcare Technology Partners Recorded: Aug 25 2016 26 mins
    Recently the president of the American Medical Association referred to healthcare IT as the “snake oil” of the 21st century. He referenced ineffective electronic health records, an explosion of direct-to-consumer digital health products, and apps of mixed quality.

    In this webinar, leading healthcare expert, Marion Jenkins, will cover the major causes of this sorry state of affairs, and discuss how healthcare technologies can actually help medical practices deliver better patient care.

    Major areas to be covered:

    1.Who is to blame? There is plenty to go around. Physicians? Healthcare IT vendors? The government? The solution must get past blame and address solutions.

    2.How can clinical users and executives “break through” the logjam of sub-optimal IT systems, poor implementation, and ineffective workflows?

    3.Is it possible to utilize new technologies to improve patient care, without breaking the bank and further hurting the clinician/patient experience?

    4.What are the necessary changes that enable technology to actually provide benefit in a healthcare setting?
  • Gain a Holistic View of User Experience in an Omnichannel World Gain a Holistic View of User Experience in an Omnichannel World Bryan Whitmarsh - Sr Principal Product Manager, CA Technologies Recorded: Aug 25 2016 55 mins
    It’s a paradox that too many tools and too much data can actually lead to not enough insight into what is really going on with your users’ experience across web, mobile and wearables. To best improve your users’ digital experience you must be able to observe users from an outside-in view. With the end user’s experience top of mind you are able to make experience focused improvements in design, development, and performance across various channels. Equally important is to have the inside-out view to find and fix problems fast. Finally, it’s is critical to have an integrated view of both outside-in and inside-out analytics.

    In this webcast you’ll learn:
    •How to understand the experience of all of your customers across mobile, web and wearables
    •How to identify and address problems that can impact user experience even at times when you have no active users
    •How to monitor user experience in conditions where security or other concerns prohibit direct end-user monitoring
    •How a holistic view of user experience can help you see wide and deep: across all channels and from end to end
  • Using your Load Balancer for Application Performance Monitoring Using your Load Balancer for Application Performance Monitoring Ashish Shah, Director of Product, Avi Networks Recorded: Aug 25 2016 47 mins
    Load balancers occupy an important position (in the path of application traffic) on the enterprise network. Yet, traditional application delivery controllers (ADCs) are unable to provide meaningful application insights to drive business decisions. Avi Networks’ software-defined architecture for load balancing separates the control plane (management layer) from the data plane (load balancers) to generate continuous insights about applications.

    In this 30 minute presentation from Avi Networks, learn how you can get rich analytics and actionable insights into end user experience, application performance, resource utilization, security, and anomalous behavior. See how you can benefit from:

    • A “Network DVR” to record and replay traffic events to pinpoint app issues
    • At-a-glance view of all virtual services throughout the system
    • Real-time visibility into DDoS attacks, SSL versions and ciphers used in transactions
    • Health scores that give you immediate feedback on application performance

  • Masters of Mobile Data: Harnessing Mobile to Drive Omnichannel Success Masters of Mobile Data: Harnessing Mobile to Drive Omnichannel Success Brian Kim, VP of Media & Acquisition, Dollar Shave Club Recorded: Aug 17 2016 61 mins
    In part 2 of this compelling Masters of Mobile Data series, you'll learn that there’s no such thing as a smartphone user, tablet user, or web user. Rather, it’s the same user who hops between the different experiences. By the same logic, there’s no point in developing a “push messaging” strategy when what you need is a holistic communications strategy.

    How are some companies able to use mobile as part of a broader customer engagement strategy, when so many others struggle to even get mobile right within its own silo? How are these marketers able to know what’s really working, taking into account all of the various multichannel effects that drive people to the app and from the app into transactions that occur outside the app, using real data, not guesswork.

    Join our group of experts from retail, ecommerce, and travel as they review what works and what doesn’t when it comes to omnichannel success.

    In this webinar you’ll learn:
    * How to think about mobile apps versus the web, and the role of mobile in the wider customer journey
    * How omnichannel marketers integrate user preferences and profile information across multiple sources
    * Mobile strategies that work in an omnichannel environment (hint: it’s more than in-app messaging and email)
    * Techniques for leveraging user-knowledge to personalize messages across channels

    Speakers:
    * Brian Kim, VP of Media & Acquisition, Dollar Shave Club
    * Brian Monahan, Former CMO Walmart.com, CEO/Founder NewCo

  • Avoid DevOps, Agile and Lean Transformation Failures Using Lifecycle Integration Avoid DevOps, Agile and Lean Transformation Failures Using Lifecycle Integration Betty Zakheim, VP Industry Strategy, TaskTop Technologies Recorded: Aug 16 2016 61 mins
    Everyone is talking about DevOps, scaling Agile, and delivering software faster and with great quality. For many traditional companies in banking, insurance, automotive, manufacturing and healthcare, trying to adopt DevOps or Agile are daunting tasks. There has to be a marriage between adopting new processes and tools, and using the existing processes and tools that are necessary for enterprise-scale software development and delivery. Join us in the webinar to discuss:
    •The elements of a DevOps, Agile or Lean transformation
    •The realities of DevOps, Agile or Lean at enterprise-scale
    •Common pitfalls in executing a transformation

  • Masters of Mobile Data: Maximizing the Lifetime Value of App Users Masters of Mobile Data: Maximizing the Lifetime Value of App Users Aaron Price, SVP of Marketing, Expedia Aug 30 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Join us for Part 3 of this compelling 4-part series on mobile data. After all, it’s not news that when it comes to apps, consumers can be very fickle, engaging for one download and then abandoning the app. In many ways, an app marketer’s real job only begins after the install. Boosting engagement metrics and increasing the lifetime value of app users is what really matters more than ever.

    A compelling value prop and smart design are necessary but not sufficient to keeping people engaged. You also need to apply data and technology on an ongoing continuous basis to strengthen and sustain your user relationships, and in turn boost the LTV of the average app user by extending both their “lifetime” and their value. Furthermore, being proactive about managing churn, and retargeting users outside of the app itself, can mean the difference between success and failure.

    Join this exclusive VB Live event as experts from retail, hospitality and on-demand services demonstrate how to:

    * Use the right technology to maximize LTV of app users
    * Optimize each user engagement to avoid app abandonment and churn
    * Learn acquisition-engagement tactics such as: pre- and post-install segmentation, organic growth, retargeting and reward-based acquisition

    Speakers include:
    * Aaron Price, SVP of Marketing, Expedia
    * Rob Willey, VP of Marketing, TaskRabbit

  • Big Data Innovation – From Experiment to Production Big Data Innovation – From Experiment to Production Matt Aslett - 451 Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics with Aali Masood, Senior Director, Oracle Sep 1 2016 4:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Big Data projects offer the promise of generating value from previously ignored or under-exploited data. Many enterprises are looking to take advantage of new data sources and combine that with the wealth of information they already hold about their customers, their business, even their competitors to develop new innovative applications and services, such as:

    · combining data from devices, sensors, customers, and analyze that in real time to react better and faster (example, location-based services)
    · pursue new opportunities in an adjacent markets – for example selling predictive maintenance services to the buyers of your products
    · accelerate time to market – for example identifying the most valuable customers and launching special programs to boost loyalty

    Innovation from Big Data is driven by experimentation to uncover new markets or data-driven products and services, as well as trying out new business processes, searching for new insights, and testing new hypotheses.

    However, a well-planned integration strategy is essential to putting this innovation to work in production business environments. The innovation may take advantage of new platforms, but to be taken into production it must work smoothly with existing systems and processes. No matter where the innovation came from, enterprises still need to access data, and figure out how to make it scale. This will involve not only the technology team, but business and strategic leaders as well.

    Join Oracle and 451 Research for a webinar exploring how to take advantage of big data opportunities by coordinating innovation and production. It covers how to manage rapid development in an environment with minimal control—together with the ability to migrate innovation into a production environment to support real-world needs that are constantly changing.

  • The Social Future of Virtual Reality The Social Future of Virtual Reality Alice Bonasio, Technology Author and Journalist Sep 13 2016 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    VR is sometimes perceived as an isolating technology, where the user is cut off entirely from the real world in order to be fully immersed in the virtual one. Yet this doesn’t take into account how much of our lives are lived online, and how our identities and relationships are already built in connected virtual worlds. The Internet and social media have transformed every aspect of society by connecting people in ways that were previously unimaginable. Virtual Reality will build upon this interconnectedness, while at the same time making those connections much more compelling, meaningful and emotional. This introductory webinar will look at the unique aspects of the medium and ask how VR content producers can best leverage them to engage their audience.
  • Professional usage of AR/VR in architectural design and building collaborations Professional usage of AR/VR in architectural design and building collaborations Kim Bleshøy Nielsen - CEO, Intertisement Sep 13 2016 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins

In an increasingly visual world, we need to equally involve people with technical and visual backgrounds. Common insight and understanding will reduce errors, save time, costs and provide important common base of perception.

    Through proper use of AR and VR visualization, we are creating important tools for a constantly evolving industry.

    Everyone knows what a huge success Pokemon Go has been - combining Augmented Reality with GPS location tracking. We can also see the impact of personalized ads “following us” when we visit different websites online... But how will we feel when we start seeing personalized location based marketing in the ‘real’ world, as Augmented Reality starts to change the way we experience supermarkets, high streets, and even getting around on public transport?

  • VR in Education: Moving the Classroom to Mars (and other field trips)! VR in Education: Moving the Classroom to Mars (and other field trips)! David Burden - CEO, Daden Limited, an immersive learning and visualisation company Sep 13 2016 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    For years, even decades, people have talked about how virtual and augmented reality and technologies could be used in the classroom, but it is only with the current wave of consumer VR devices that there is in schools on a large scale is becoming practicable. But to be effective we need to understand the pedagogic basis on which such technologies can be used, and provide the tool for teachers to be able to create their own VR experiences tailored to their own students.

    This presentation will look at the scope for the use of VR technologies in schools, describe some of the pioneering systems, and summarise the pedagogic underpinnings of VR use. It will then describe the Fieldscapes system as one example of a VR authoring system that will allow educators to create and share VR content, and how for the short-medium term a mix of VR and non-VR usage will need to be supported in order to cope with school ICT budgets, issues and concerns and different modes of use in and out of the classroom.
