This webinar is part one of a four part series that examines how digital transformation enables you to outperform competitors.
Digital transformation occurs when a company adopts technologies and practices that change it from one that ships its software slowly and painfully to one that ships software quickly while, at the same time, improving its quality and mitigating risk. Businesses that embrace digital transformation outperform their competitors: they capitalize on disruption rather than allowing themselves to be disrupted. They deliver their software faster, with higher efficiency and lower risk. These advances can be quantified to prove their effectiveness.
This short-form webinar series invites you to participate in a discussion on how to implement digital transformation and which metrics demonstrate progress on your journey. The first part of our series, focuses on the overall challenges businesses face in the marketplace and how to gauge where you stand. Subsequent webinars will focus on specific measures that move transformation forward.
Join us to:
- Learn how industry trends shape your internal challenges
- Explore how companies have resolved tensions between central IT organizations and development teams

Join guest speaker Rob Stroud, Principal Analyst at Forrester, and Dana Boudreau, Senior Director of Product Management at CA Technologies, for an in-depth discussion on how bringing DevOps to the mainframe can challenge traditional development methodologies, delivering code faster with greater quality in responding to escalating market demands.
Today's computing infrastructure is changing dramatically to support new requirements in design and structure. This is no more evident than in the Internet of Things, where new types of machines driven by vast, complex industrial, distributed systems, can’t operate without connectivity. These new machines will transform our infrastructure into smart freeways, distributed power generation and autonomous driving cars, etc., revolutionizing the workplace and our lives for years to come.
These new IoT systems need data-centric technology that directly addresses real-time systems to explicitly manage the communications “data model.” No matter what application – from financial trading platforms, to medical devices, to smart electrical grids, to exploration and production and to transportation – industries need solutions to find right data then communicates it to its intended destination in a reliable, flexible, fast, and secure manner.

PKI used to be difficult to implement, and was seen as complex, labor intensive and expensive. The development of powerful credential management software has brought considerable improvements. It now does much of the manual work that used to be left up to the administrators saving them valuable time in the war against security threats. In our last webinar, we found almost 50% of those you voted cited the Internet of Things as the main driver for PKI. More connected devices and users will create a need for higher levels of security in all organizations as the number of possible threats and attacks increase.
For security professionals, implementing and modernizing their PKI systems will be crucial, keeping in mind not all PKI implementations are created equal. Some are inherently more complex, depending on the level and layers of security needed for within your organization. Following our previous PKI foundational webinar, this one will cover the elements you need to consider when designing a PKI environment.
Join us for the “PKI – Your Ally in the War Against Security Threats” to learn how you can maximize your organization’s security and the things you need to know to get started including:
•PKI use cases in an enterprise environment to secure access and protect data
•Budgeting for your PKI deployment of modernization
•Outlining the deployment size, scope and timeline
•Analyzing and reviewing current and/or future security policies
•Maintenance and administration of the PKI system
•Configuring and understanding certificate authorities
•Developing a scalable approach to prepare for future needs
•Addressing the protection of sensitive keys and the ecosystem integration
Modern application technologies make it possible to provide a better user experience than ever before. With elevated end-user expectations, the difference between success and failure is an organization's ability to efficiently harness the power of complex application architectures to meet customers demands. An application performance management solution that sees through the data deluge to answer critical questions is more important today than ever before.
In this webcast, we will explore:
-Application performance management's role in modern IT organizations
-CA Application Performance Management's role in providing stellar end-user experience
-New innovations within CA Application Performance Management
Working in silos, while never a good idea, is a reality in many organizations today. Security and network operations teams have different priorities, processes and systems. Security teams use various controls and tools to mitigate different kinds of threats which provides them with thousands of alerts on a daily basis. They often find it difficult to prioritize the threats to address first. What they may not know is that there is a whole piece of the puzzle they could be missing - core network services like DNS, DHCP and IPAM. These can provide a wealth of information and context on threats, which can help prioritize response based on actual risk and ease compliance. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on February 23, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on how to use ecosystem integrations between network and security tools for better security and compliance.

In this lead-off class, we will briefly review the principles of the IoT and some of the basic configurations that we may encounter (star with gateway, tree, and mesh) and how the devices are best connected to maximize efficiency. We will look at the major issues we face as these networks and associated “things” become more complex, including data issues, communication issues, device monitoring and troubleshooting, and system security. We will identify potential weaknesses in each of these areas and compile a checklist of features that we need in a management system that will carry out these needs. We will also look at ways to prioritize the criticality of the devices and/or their data to help us in assigning levels of security and monitoring capabilities (for example, a temperature sensor used to sense a fire versus a temperature sensor for outside ambient temperature). Day 1 sponsored by WInd River
In our second class, we will begin at the heart of the Internet of Things – the sending and receiving of data to our “things.” Whether it’s collecting a simple room temperature reading or capturing a video frame for analysis, the IoT enables us to collect huge amounts of data for analysis then send out data in the form of commands or as human-readable data. The diversity of end devices makes this task difficult at best, as it involves myriad data types and protocols. This is key as we want to ensure the safety, security, and integrity of that data from its source to its intended destination. We will look at various methods we can use in our device design to effectively monitor and secure our data flow throughout the entire IoT network. Also, we will look at ways that we can approach communications issues with different protocols and physical layers in our network, which often consist of legacy devices that were not originally designed for the robustness required in the IoT. Day 2 sponsored by WInd River
This webinar is part three of a four part series that focuses on the steps you should take to bring about digital transformation in your organization. In this webinar, we talk about how to increase the rate at which you can deploy new software.

In our final class, we will look at the “Things” of the IoT – our nodes and devices – and how we can effectively commission, monitor, and detect problems in them throughout their lifecycle. We will look at methods for adding device management capabilities in our devices from the design stage as well as ways to add these capabilities in the legacy devices we looked at in the previous class. One topic we will look at is effective commissioning and decommissioning of devices in the network – how can we add or remove a node from the network without adversely impacting the rest of the network? Another area we will look at is security assurance and testing: how can we be sure of the device security – and how can we test it? And lastly we will look at maintenance. What methods can we use for testing devices or paths within the network and how can we effectively and safely perform system updates? To conclude our class, we will review our checklist and see what other issues we may need to be aware of in our IoT design. Day 3 sponsored by Wind River
