  • 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 Recorded: Aug 30 2016 63 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
    * Jillian Burnnett, Director of Customer Success, mParticle
    * Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat

  • 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.

    Speakers:
    David Drake, Solutions Architect
    Keith Bloomfield, Senior Java Developer
  • 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
  • The Future of EDI The Future of EDI Eric Rempel, CIO, Redwood Logistics; David Chao, Director of Industry Marketing, MuleSoft Recorded: Aug 25 2016 47 mins

  • Are Containers Ready to Run NoSQL Databases? Are Containers Ready to Run NoSQL Databases? Adeesh Fulay, Director Products Recorded: Aug 25 2016 61 mins
    The database is the quintessential data dependency for any application. Databases in production environments tend to be performance sensitive and expect consistent and predictable performance from their underlying infrastructure. On the other hand, databases in dev/test environments need to be fast, agile and portable.

    Due to this paradox, production databases are typically deployed on bare metal servers for maximum performance and predictability. This often leads to underutilization of hardware, idle capacity, and poor isolation. On the other hand, dev/test databases are deployed on VMs which are fast to deploy, improve hardware utilization and consolidation, are fully isolated, and are easy to move across data centers and clouds, but suffer from poor performance, hypervisor overhead and unpredictability.

    In this session, we will discuss:

    - How NoSQL databases like Cassandra can benefit from container technology
    - If the current storage systems can support containerized databases
    - How to alleviate data management challenges for large databases
    - How the Robin Containerization Platform can deliver bare-metal-like performance, while retaining all virtualization benefits
