    You can't secure what you can't see and not knowing what's on your network can be damaging. While security is about proactively detecting and mitigating threats before they cause damage, it is also about gaining deep visibility into today's complex networks which may include diverse platforms and architectures. A truly enterprise grade DNS, DHCP and IPAM (DDI) platform can provide that visibility because of where it sits in networks. On the downside, DNS is a top threat vector but it can be used as strategic control points to block malicious activity and data exfiltration. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on January 19, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a round table discussion featuring Cricket Liu, a well known authority on the Domain Name System and the co- author of all of O'Reilly & Associates' Nutshell Handbooks on DNS, as we examine how strategic DNS can be used for visibility and security.

    The pay TV, VOD, and IPTV market is still evolving in terms of content and pricing models, but the demographics of Africa and its large population are highly attractive to existing and new market participants. Internet penetration, supplemented by a significant uptake in smartphone adoption, has altered the manner in which Africa consumes video content. This growth will be further augmented by the availability of cheaper DTT services, data-saving video consumption options, and attractively packaged triple-play services. It is critical for market participants to gauge market trends, price sensitivity and growth opportunities while offering their services. Along with pricing and richness of content, strategic partnerships will play a key role in defining the market leader in the next five years.
  • Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling Introduction to Uncertainty Modeling Tao Yue, Shaukat Ali, and Bran Selic - Simula Research Laboratory Jan 25 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The importance of facing, understanding, predicting and even mitigating uncertainty has been well acknowledged and studied in various fields such as philosophy, physics and finance. In terms of software and system engineering, due to the increasing complex of large-scale systems themselves, and the dynamic and unpredictable deployment and operation environments of such systems, increasing attentions have been given to address challenges of explicitly specifying and modeling uncertainty.
    Uncertainty Modeling (UM) aims to promote and enable explicit specifications of uncertainty and uncertainty related concepts, at various contexts (e.g., developing large-scale Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things, for different purposes (e.g., enabling uncertainty-wise requirements specifications, modeling, verification and validation, e.g., facilitating the definition of uncertainty-wise testing strategies), and at different phases of the development of such complex and uncertainty-inherent systems (e.g., requirements, architecture, design, testing and operation).
    In the context of OMG, we see a diverse set of uncertainty modeling applications, such as 1) integrating with UML use cases, SysML Requirements Diagram, to enable requirements V&V, 2) capturing uncertainty as part of SysML or UML models to facilitate design and/or testing, 3) integrating with BPMN and other OMG standards to facilitate different kinds of analyses and generations.
    OMG’s Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information (RFI) is currently open for responses. The RFI aims to solicit ideas, discussions, comments, recommendations, user needs and experiences about uncertainty modeling. Collected responses will be carefully analyzed and will be used to identify requirements, based on an RFP for an UM will be developed. Instructions for responding to this RFI are specified in the OMG Uncertainty Modeling Request for Information document (ad/16-09-02 (Uncertainty RFI)).
    We invite you to join the conversation.

  • Strengthening your app monetization super powers Strengthening your app monetization super powers Stewart Rogers, Director of Technology, VentureBeat Jan 25 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It takes more than Superman or his Justice League to develop and maintain an effective app monetization strategy. This is especially true in light of a recent report which found that 0.19 percent of all mobile game players contributed 48 percent of revenue. How can one identify the high-spend users while not alienating the remaining percentage that only have potential to spend within the app?

    Ideally, one would customize app strategy according to type of user. Better still, each user would have her own strategy. Unfortunately this isn't a scalable solution to monetization.

    In this webinar, you'll learn to:

    * Customize your monetization strategy so that it's scalable
    * Unlock the revenue potential of lower spending users
    * Attract higher-spend users
    * Negotiate monetization strategies without alienating current users

    Speakers:
    * Maximo Cavazzani, founder and CEO, Etermax (Trivia Crack)
    * Eric Shashoua, CEO, Kiwi for Gmail
    * Stewart Rogers, Director of Technology, VentureBeat

    Harnessing the Power of Agile at Scale with Big Room Planning

    Many organisations are already using agile methodologies like Scrum, but largely at an individual team level.
    But how do you ensure correlation and coordination between different agile teams? How do you ensure alignment between business strategy and execution level? And how do you provide business stakeholders with visibility to track the progress of ongoing projects and programmes – traditional and agile?
    The secret to succeeding with Enterprise Scale Agile is Big Room Planning; real-time collaboration, where teams identify risks early, untangle dependencies, and effectively plan their work aligned to business priorities and customer needs.

    In this webinar, Jonas Högstrand and Andrew Sales, will discuss:

    •What benefits organisations can achieve with greater levels of business agility
    •Why Big Room Planning is a core activity for succeeding with agile at scale and the agile behaviours it drives
    •How Big Room Planning works, who participates, what you do and why it’s worthwhile
    •How CA Agile Central supports Big Room Planning and provides visibility to track and steer the plans that are created

    Learn how to achieve faster time to market, improved quality, strategic alignment between IT and the business, and predictable delivery of features that delight customers.
