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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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
"It is inevitable. If you haven’t already it won’t be long until you are part of a project to migrate to the cloud. For many that means moving some or all of your data to AWS. Sounds easy but many a migration as gone south quickly for a variety of reasons. Moving and living in the cloud is a different animal. Designing and living in a cloud footprint is going to require a different way of doing things, from process, to tools to policy, change is inevitable. So how do you adapt and save valuable time and money by avoiding the idiot tax?
In this premiere webinar Alan Shimel, editor-in-chief of DevOps.com will be joined by Pauly Comtois of Hearst Corporation who has led several successful cloud migrations. Pauly will provide us the pro tips you need for a successful migration. What common pitfalls to avoid, how to avoid them and what tools will you need to update when moving from on prem to the cloud. Save yourself the aggravation and learn from someone who has been there and done it. For instance, your logging tool of choice on premises may not fit the bill for the cloud. What about Cloud security? Management? Compliance? All issues that Comtois has had to face at Hearst.
Pauly will share his 6 most important pro tips on AWS migration and discuss other things to be mindful of as well as answer your questions. Watch this webinar to hear from our experts on their best tips for organizations who are preparing and planning for an AWS migration or are in the midst of one."

Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.
Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
•Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
•Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
•Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
•Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts

Often, we see modernization programs are driven by technical teams to resolve technical or infrastructure-related objectives without any input or insight from business teams. The downfall with a single-track view is not only myopic, serving limited purposes for a limited time, but also it can prove to be a wrong decision in the long run.
In some instances, we’ve seen customers opting for a re-host or automated code conversion, whereas an application re-architecture or re-write would’ve been a better long-term and cost-effective solution for the business. That’s why it’s critical for companies to get a holistic view of their modernization project first, and then have a robust plan to achieve their objective.
