  • Improve Lending Portfolio Performance with Data Optimization Improve Lending Portfolio Performance with Data Optimization Spencer Robinson, Head of Strategy, Kabbage Recorded: Sep 22 2016 61 mins
    The financial crisis brought about huge losses to a large number of financial institutions and exposed many of the internal inefficiencies leveraged to manage risk and data within and across divisions. Today, things have changed dramatically. Despite the many regulatory changes over the years, marketplace lenders have been extremely successful implementing predictive modeling and data aggregation to assess consumers’ and small businesses’ financial health.

    New lending technologies allow lenders to improve customer satisfaction by creating a personalized and unique customer experience. By taking into consideration personal, transactional, application, and product-selection data from financial institutions, lenders are able to leverage this data for other opportunities such as cross-selling credit products during the loan-application process. These innovations ultimately provide borrowers with an intuitive and simplified borrowing process.

    In this webinar you’ll:

    * Get insight into the trends and opportunities driving change in the lending and credit risk management industries

  • How To Design a Great B2B UX Which Makes Users and Developers Happy How To Design a Great B2B UX Which Makes Users and Developers Happy Mascha van Oosterhout, User Experience Consultant, eProseed Recorded: Sep 21 2016 27 mins
    As UX consultant at eProseed, partner of Oracle, I currently design UXs of B2B apps to be used on an Oracle platform. For a B2B application to be a successful User Experience, it needs to fulfil requirements from different angles. Users want the app to be useful and usable. Developers need the app to be easy to develop and the customer wants the app to provide business value.

    Asa UX designer I'm always in the middle. I know the different requirements and of course I put the user first and foremost. At the same time I make sure that all stakeholders know the users by defining personas and usage scenarios.

    I design the app for a user to use in any required context (at home, at work, in public transport etc.) By applying the "glance, scan, commit" design philosophy, I make sure that the UX helps the user to fulfil all required work related tasks.

    At the same time i use standard (user tested) Oracle UX patterns to design the app in a way that it's easy for developers to build the UX. By applying these patterns and the Oracle guidelines, the time to develop the uX is reduced, which also makes the customer happy.

    How I do all this, I will explain in this webinar.
  • CA UIM per il controllo di infrastrutture IT tradizionali e ambienti cloud CA UIM per il controllo di infrastrutture IT tradizionali e ambienti cloud Luigi Benocci & Cristiana Darra, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 21 2016 42 mins
    Oggi l’Application Economy richiede un approccio Agile anche nel controllo quotidiano delle infrastrutture IT e nel controllo delle sue performance.
    Gli ambienti IT tendono sempre di più ad essere eterogenei con la presenza di sistemi legacy e cloud sia in forma privata che pubblica (hybrid cloud). Allo stesso tempo agli operation manager viene chiesto di essere proattivi e sempre più veloci nel tenere sotto controllo lo stato dei servizi di business erogati.
    Un approccio ai tool di monitoraggio a “silos” non risponde a questi requisiti e rischia di mantenere alti i tempi di risoluzione delle criticità e dei problemi (MTTR alti).
    CA Unified Infrastructure Monitoring (UIM) consente di avere una visibilità a 360 gradi sulle applicazioni, servizi e infrastruttura (fino al mainframe) in modo moderno e ottimale unificando i vari tools di monitoraggio dipartimentali, offrendo un controllo puntuale sia sui sistemi più tradizionali che sulle nuove tecnologie cloud e micro-service.

  • Take a Requirements-Driven Approach to Better Software Take a Requirements-Driven Approach to Better Software Jonathon Wright, Director of Digital Assurance, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 20 2016 60 mins
    Case studies show that the vast majority of defects creating havoc in production software are not introduced by developers or testers, but by requirements. Rather than alleviating this problem, agile development practices have introduced a new one: Testers must navigate a constant barrage of disparate user stories and change requests.

    In order for development teams to keep up with constantly changing user needs, requirements must be captured in a format that minimizes miscommunication, reacts quickly to change, and enables subsequent test assets to be derived automatically.

    Learn a requirements-driven approach that:
    - Captures user needs in a format already familiar to business analysts
    - Allows testers to automatically generate optimized test cases, test scripts, data, and expected results
    - Automatically reflects changes made to the requirements in the test assets

    Many companies experimenting with agile development methods in their engineering and IT groups are having only mixed success.

    Unless you’re implementing agile both upstream (through your portfolio) and downstream (through testing and operations,) you’re not harnessing agile’s full power through Digital Transformation. Being faster to market doesn’t help your bottom line if you deliver the wrong things, and failing to get the right things into production fast means you’re leaving money on the table.

    Join this web seminar to gain insight into the benefits of a digital transformation. You’ll discover a strategic, collaborative approach to channel the power of agile and deliver more value to your customers.
  • Modern Cookbook Design Modern Cookbook Design Kevin Dickerson, Loom Sep 27 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    If you’re a typical Chef user, you learned cookbook design by writing recipes and then tuning functionality with node attributes—and you probably didn’t focus too much on the underlying Ruby concepts. This approach can lead to messy designs that are more difficult to verify and maintain.

    Chef’s fundamental building blocks are resources, not recipes. In this webinar, Kevin Dickerson of Loom (a Chef Certified Partner), will demonstrate a resource-centric approach to designing and verifying cookbooks that can reduce defects, increase clarity, and provide greater isolation of logic and various configuration concerns.

    Kevin will show you how to create and use resources and resource properties instead of emulating resources with recipes. He’ll also teach you how to verify cookbooks, and how verification is simplified when a resource is only concerned with the conditions that affect its behavior.

    You’ll also be introduced to some Ruby concepts that don’t seem to get a lot of attention—after all, Chef cookbooks are written in Ruby.

  • GamesBeat: How to get gamers to love your games and love your brand GamesBeat: How to get gamers to love your games and love your brand Matt Marshall, CEO, VentureBeat Sep 29 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Building brand affection is one of the best things you can do for any product. Think about it -- do you ask for a tissue or do you ask for a Kleenex? Do you look for a plastic bandage or do you ask for a Band-Aid? Do you "use a search engine to find out information about your blind date" or do you Google them?

    This is more than performance marketing -- which evolved solely to drive transactions and downloads -- this is awareness marketing. And for the games community, it's about getting people to remember and associate an emotion with your game, so they seek it out now -- and later. But brand awareness is hard to measure -- and hard to get your arms around. Many games teams spend little to no budget, favoring the results-focused performance marketing. We're going to show you how to be better than them -- and get the advantage for your mobile game, starting today.

    GamesBeat's own Dean Takahashi will sit down with execs from the gaming industry such as Seriously's VP of marketing and Eli Danziger, product manager for YouTube Ads. Together, we'll discuss storytelling and brand awareness marketing tips tailored to mobile games today.

    In this third installment of our Building Games Communities series, you will:

    * Learn how to use YouTube and other channels to drive brand awareness for mobile games;
    * Find the right time to invest in brand awareness marketing in your mobile game lifecycle; and
    * Understand the right KPIs to measure ROI on awareness marketing.

    Our esteemed panel for this rockstar discussion includes:

    * Matt Marshall, CEO, VentureBeat
    * Phil Hickey, VP Marketing and Communications; Seriously
    * Eli Danziger, product manager, YouTube
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, GamesBeat

  • How to Optimize Security Controls for DevOps How to Optimize Security Controls for DevOps Adrian Sanabria, Senior Analyst at 451 Research, & Sami Laine, Principal Technologist at CloudPassage Sep 29 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The widespread adoption of DevOps and agile IT delivery systems presents new security challenges. Developers need security tools that are integrated with their build processes so they can test the integrity and security of their applications within minutes. Similarly, infosec managers need security tools that automatically discover and protect new applications as they are delivered via rapid automation and elastic processes. But traditional security tools don’t do either of these things. Thus, security is increasingly viewed as a blocker to agile software development and DevOps deployment. To solve this problem, security has to fundamentally evolve from a production-time concept to something that is much more automated and embedded into the dev-test-build cycle itself,

    Attend this webinar to learn:
    •Why trying to use traditional security tools in DevOps environments will slow down both developers and security operations
    •Key attributes you should be thinking about to make your security plan future-proof
    •Where can security automation be applied to better align security with DevOps delivery models

  • Website personalization: What online shoppers want now Website personalization: What online shoppers want now Emma Mcilroy, CEO, WildFang Oct 6 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We know one thing for sure -- three quarters of digital natives want a truly personalized web experience. But most marketers aren't actually personalizing their website and messaging content. Why? Because it's hard. And expensive. And messy. And where do you even start with all the data points?

    Machine learning is the key. And simplicity is the exception rather than the rule -- it has to be easy to use or forget it. It's time to stop talking about personalization and start actually using it or risk losing out on the the 80% of consumers who felt that brands were not familiar or only somewhat familiar with their needs.

    We're going to sit down with the CEO from the popular clothing retailer WildFang. She will reveal how it increased revenue by personalizing its e-commerce site to target small groups of visitors based on their behaviors (across many channels) and affinities. CEO Emma McIllroy will be joined by Craig Schinn, former digital-marketing leader for an outdoor-clothing e-commerce site, who can speak to the thought leadership for marketing professionals in real-time marketing personalization strategy as well as WildFang's case study in particular as it unleashed the power of machine learning-based website personalization..

    In the webinar you will learn how to:
    * Increase web conversions and revenue with personalized website marketing
    * Use behavior-based audience segments to better target visitors.
    * Target customers who are most likely to buy or most likely to churn using data science and advanced machine learning algorithms.
    * Use cross-channel customer data to power more relevant website marketing campaigns

    Speakers:
    * Emma Mcilroy, CEO, WildFang
    * Craig Schinn, senior director, Solutions Consulting, Lytics
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, VentureBeat

  • Database as a Service: What should you consider before migrating to the cloud? Database as a Service: What should you consider before migrating to the cloud? Matt Aslett - 451 Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics Oct 11 2016 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Database-as-a-service offers multiple potential benefits, including lower database licensing and infrastructure costs, faster time to application development, and reduced administration overheads. These benefits are most likely to be experienced by database administrators and architects, although senior decision-makers and business users also stand to gain from having on-demand access to database services, rather than waiting for databases to be configured and deployed on dedicated physical or virtual server infrastructure.

    While 451 Research anticipates growing adoption of database-as-a-service (DBaaS), adoption is currently nascent compared with other cloud services, as enterprises look to make the most of their investments in on-premises database deployments, and also to identify the most appropriate workloads for transition or migration to DBaaS. This webinar explores the factors shaping those adoption trends, including the potential benefits and challenges to DBaaS adoption, the economics of the cloud as they relate to database workloads, and adoption lifecycles.

    Based on research involving enterprises currently deploying database workloads in the cloud, the webinar will:

    • Highlight the trends driving enterprises to move database workloads to the cloud
    • Identify the challenges causing enterprises to be hesitant about migrating database workloads to the cloud
    • Identify the use-cases that are prime candidates for migrating database workloads to the cloud
    • Highlight the critical success factors for database migration to the cloud
  • The Agile Enterprise is not a Myth…it's a Reality The Agile Enterprise is not a Myth…it's a Reality Dan Rice, Agile Advisor, Agile Management, Americas & EMEA Oct 11 2016 5:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Many companies experimenting with agile development methods in their engineering and IT groups are having only mixed success.

    Unless you’re implementing agile both upstream (through your portfolio) and downstream (through testing and operations,) you’re not harnessing agile’s full power through Digital Transformation. Being faster to market doesn’t help your bottom line if you deliver the wrong things, and failing to get the right things into production fast means you’re leaving money on the table.

    Join this web seminar to gain insight into the benefits of a digital transformation. You’ll discover a strategic, collaborative approach to channel the power of agile and deliver more value to your customers.

    You'll learn how to:
    Deliver value quickly in small increments across work streams
    Provide visibility into strategic initiatives that inform the process, from planning through delivery
    Support continuous delivery with automation
