  • Using Predictive Analytics to optimize Application operations: Can you dig it? Using Predictive Analytics to optimize Application operations: Can you dig it? Lesley-Anne Wilson, Group Product Rollout & Support Engineer, Digicel Group Recorded: Jul 22 2016 23 mins
    Many studies have been done on the benefits of Predictive Analytics on customer engagement in order to change customer behaviour. However, the side less romanticized is the benefit to IT operations as it is sometimes difficult to turn the focus from direct revenue impacting gain to the more indirect revenue gains that can come from optimization and pro-active issue resolution.

    I will be speaking, from an application operations engineers perspective, on the benefits to the business of using Predictive Analytics to optimize applications.

  • On the way to Smart Factory On the way to Smart Factory Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services Recorded: Jul 22 2016 42 mins
    Presented by Jay Monahan, Director of Smart Factory Solutions, Dell Services. In 2012, The Economist claimed we were entering the third industrial revolution based on the digitization of manufacturing, also referred to as the “smart factory.” The development and adoption of the Internet of Things is a critical element of smart manufacturing as reduced sensor device cost, and increased connectivity and in-memory processing give manufacturers the ability to gather and use data to increase product quality and transform operations. IT organizations are increasingly involved with the management, security and governance of this data as equipment and products are connected to the internet. This session will provide a practical framework for evaluating ways to improve sensor enablement, transaction processes and analytics based on real-world customer examples.
  • An app for nursing, designed by nurses An app for nursing, designed by nurses Vincent van Luling, Meander Medisch Centrum & Dell Services Recorded: Jul 22 2016 4 mins
    As part of a wider digitization initiative, Meander Medical Centre wanted to involve nurses in the development of an app that would help them deliver better patient care. The IT team and nursing staff worked with Dell Digital Business Services to design an app that would be used on the Dell Venue 11 Pro tablet, integrating with the hospital’s electronic medical record system.
  • Predictive and Prescriptive Power Discovery from Fast, Wide, Deep Big Data Predictive and Prescriptive Power Discovery from Fast, Wide, Deep Big Data Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton Recorded: Jul 22 2016 45 mins
    I will summarize the stages of analytics maturity that lead an organization from traditional reporting (descriptive analytics: hindsight), through predictive analytics (foresight), and into prescriptive analytics (insight). The benefits of big data (especially high-variety data) will be demonstrated with simple examples that can be applied to significant use cases.

    The goal of data science in this case is to discover predictive power and prescriptive power from your data collections, in order to achieve optimal decisions and outcomes.
  • CMO Checklist: Why brands should engage with bots CMO Checklist: Why brands should engage with bots Jon Cifuentes, Analyst, VentureBeat Recorded: Jul 21 2016 56 mins

  • Briefings Part 1: Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack Briefings Part 1: Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack Barry Shteiman, Director, Threat Research, Exabeam; Brandon Dunlap, Brightfly Recorded: Jul 21 2016 60 mins
    Ransomware is currently one of the most disruptive security challenges for enterprises. As it moves from an individual employee's PC to the corporate network, the impact can be significant. Despite research and analysis by security firms and analysts, most don't have a good idea of how a piece of ransomware actually operates, i.e. what is affected and when, what signals to look for, etc. Exabeam researchers have detonated nearly 100 strains of ransomware in the labs and produced a detailed analysis of how a ransomware attack actually unfolds, and how an organization might respond to shut it down. Join Exabeam and (ISC)2 on July 21, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern and gain a better understanding of the mechanisms of ransomware, how to detect it and shut down an attack.
  • Reduce your TCO with a full-featured software load balancer Reduce your TCO with a full-featured software load balancer Ashish Shah, Director of Product, Avi Networks Recorded: Jul 21 2016 44 mins
    Hardware or software applicance-based load balancers do not scale horizontally. They often cause configuration delays, overspending, and overprovisioning. Avi Networks leverages the power of central management and insights derived from distributed load balancing resources to provide predictive autoscaling of load balancers as well as application components. Enterprises can eliminate upfront capital costs and adopt an elastic subscription-based model for load balancing. The Avi Vantage platform alleviates operational complexities inherent in buying hardware and managing multiple appliances.

    In this webinar learn new best practices for autoscaling load balancers and applications. Learn the flexibility and cost savings achieved through:

    • Software-defined L4-L7 services and central management
    • Use of commodity x86 servers for load balancing
    • Elastic scaling based on real-time traffic that eliminates overprovisioning
    • Avoiding CapEx and significantly reduced OpEx
  • What Came First - the Model or the Test? What Came First - the Model or the Test? Huw Price, CA Technologies and Paul Gerrard, Gerrard Consulting Recorded: Jul 21 2016 63 mins
    All testing relies on modelling, but “test models are the only way forward for testers and businesses”, according to Paul Gerrard, Principal at Gerrard Consulting. This session reviews the use of modelling in testing and illustrate, using real life examples, how chaos and carnage is being replaced with structured order.
    Paul sets out his vision for a “New Model of Testing” which puts models at the heart of high quality, efficient testing. This will be accompanied by a practical demonstration of how model-based approaches can be applied within a state-of-the-art DevOps framework including:
    •How models can be used to capture accurately ever changing business requirements
    •The “Shift left” effect of formal modelling for testing, where test cases, scripts, data and expected results can all be generated from the initial design
    •How the testing assets derived from a model can be updated automatically, so that testing keeps up with the rate at which user needs change

  • Technologies Creating Digital Disruption for IT Vendors in the Education Sector Technologies Creating Digital Disruption for IT Vendors in the Education Sector Adrian Drozd, Research Director and Vijay Michalik, Research Analyst Recorded: Jul 20 2016 39 mins
    Historically, the education sector has been characterized by underestimated opportunities given poor visibility into the trends and challenges faced by the sector; however, investment inertia is finally starting to change. This briefing will focus on digital disruption in education, offering IT vendors insight into the growth opportunities. Education technology can disrupt the traditional service providers, and other IT vendors with applicable tools need to seize the opportunities before more nimble startups can lock them down. Education now represents a huge under-addressed market with significant new revenue streams available. However, it is crucial for providers targeting this space to understand the unique strategies and investment priorities of the education sector. In addition, having a clear perspective of how emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, quantum computing, blockchain and IoT can help to revolutionize the sector is essential.

  • What Going Digital Really Means to IT What Going Digital Really Means to IT Bill Briggs, CTO, Deloitte Consulting LLP Ross Mason, Founder and VP of Product Strategy, MuleSoft Recorded: Jul 19 2016 64 mins
    Almost everyone is undergoing digital transformation, but not everyone knows the right way to do it. In a recent MuleSoft survey, 96 percent of respondents are executing on digital transformation initiatives or planning to do so in the near future. However, the results also showed that just 18 percent of IT decision makers are confident that they will succeed in meeting this year’s digital transformation goals. To do this effectively, IT teams need different skill sets, tools, and more importantly, different mindsets. Join Bill Briggs, CTO at Deloitte, and Ross Mason, Founder and VP of Product Strategy at MuleSoft, to learn how IT can grow beyond “business as usual".
