  • Health plans push for their members to visit their primary care provider for a checkup. It improves health outcomes and reduces the medical spend from costs related to illness and disease. Like their members, health plans also need checkups that will identify the challenges to which they are increasingly exposed, such as issues around information security, revenue maximization, and staffing needs. In this webinar, we will discuss how to specifically deal with key issues related to each of these areas.
  • Wondering how to manage stringent SLA demands for complex networks that span distributed and mainframe environments, while simultaneously reducing your IT budget? Discover how you can dramatically improve performance and availability of your entire network by proactively managing it from a single point of control. What’s more, you’ll find out how to significantly reduce costs with total savings that might surprise you.

    See how customers are leveraging advance analytics and automation to predictably prevent network problems and resourcefully plan for future network needs.
  • Looking out, your organization’s success depends on flexibility and ability to rapidly adapt to market trends, and innovate faster. Looking in, it also depends on increased business efficiency and effectiveness. These two can, and need to be achieved together.

    You can drive innovation and time to market by adopting Agile software development. But business efficiency and effectiveness are hard to achieve when you manage a disparate array of applications, deployed across a range of platforms and tools chosen by different teams in your organization: business, development, quality, operations. Maintaining that type of environment is costly, inefficient, and inherently risky.

    Take quality as an example. Iterative and agile development drives faster cycle times. But quality for agile has lagged the updates of agile. The result is riskier code practices, with less visibility, at a time when organizations face exposure to risk due to customer-facing mobile and other new applications.

    You need consistent agile quality strategies and application component visibility in order to succeed.

    In this webinar, we will show you how HP Agile Manager enables your team to surface quality throughout the entire software quality lifecycle, from writing quality code, to functional and nonfunctional testing of Agile artifacts, all the way to monitoring the application in production, and looping back production feedback into development, thus opening the door to DevOps.
  • Container technologies are capturing the industry headlines right now, but they are seen mainly as a solution for Linux test-dev environments. In reality, container technology can pay big dividends for MS-SQL. Join Storage Switzerland’s George Crump and DH2i’s Carl Berglund for this interactive webinar as we explain how containers work in MS-SQL environments and detail the 3 reasons you should consider containers for your MS-SQL environment:

    1. Make any SQL Server instance mobile to any infrastructure
    2. Facilitate modernization of infrastructure, OS, &/or application version
    3. Get near-zero downtime with simple, flexible management
  • The rise of mobile offers a once-in-a-generation chance for deeper connections with consumers because mobile is inherently intimate and always-on. Being able to reach customers at any time, on any device, allows brands to boost engagement, increase retention, and grow revenue. But with so many avenues of communication, including email, push notifications, and social, businesses run the risk of spamming users rather than communicating with each individual person in a valuable way. So, how can brands intelligently leverage the bevy of marketing channels to better understand and engage customers?

    Winning brands must embrace an omnichannel engagement strategy that’s built specifically for their channel-agnostic customer base. This webinar outlines the key issues in delivering a seamless omnichannel experience and provides actionable tactics that deliver proven ROI.

    You’ll learn:

    * Why today’s marketing automation solutions fall short of customer expectations
    * How winning omnichannel marketing strategies balance push notifications, in-app messages, email, and social communications
    * Why understanding users on a person level, and not device level, is critical in mobile
    * Why “Marketing” is evolving to “Communicating” and how to prepare for that transition

  • CA Release Automation and Skytap Environments-as-a-Service Webinar

    We’ve all seen the cooking show where the chef is showing the host a new recipe, and then “voilá!” out of the oven pops a fully baked dish, without the wait time. When multiple teams can develop, deploy and test in parallel using exact, instant clones of the target deployment environment, it’s like having one of those magic time-warp ovens for baking software releases. Discover how you can easily integrate instant cloud-based environment provisioning directly within automated application deployment workflows, and get out of the business of messing with infrastructure recipes. Join us for this webcast and learn how combining Skytap EaaS with CA’s leading Release Automation solution, you can:
    . Easily harness the complexity and volume of applications, tools and environments inherent in continuous delivery
    • Eliminate bottlenecks at every phase of the SLDC for faster release velocity, from the early provisioning of development infrastructure, through system, integration and acceptance testing and into production.
    • Use the CA Release Automation Action Pack for Skytap EaaS to provision/delete, copy, schedule, suspend and resume Skytap cloud environments on demand.
    • Use Skytap’s “golden template” capability to stamp out specified infrastructure completely within the context of the automated deployment workflow, without requiring additional coding or waiting for scripts to run.
  • Azure makes substantial infrastructure capabilities available to you with just a click of the mouse, but this isn't the virtualization stack you're used to.

  • This demo-driven session will show you different ways to integrate Salesforce, including loading SAP customer master data into Salesforce, synchronizing real time updates, creating shared services and developing an agility layer with APIs.
  • Today’s banking customers are a demanding bunch. They expect mobility, transparency, instant access, and competitive products from their providers. In response, financial institutions are hard at work optimizing online and mobile banking. However, all too often, the solutions and apps they create fall short of the mark.

    At the same time, technology advancements are making it easier than ever for small, agile fintech startups to quickly turn ideas into marketable products across multiple channels, including wearables.

    To compete in the digital age, banks must deliver smart, friendly technology, and they must do it quickly. The best way to do this is to partner with the experts. Leading banks and fintech firms need one another to thrive, if not survive.

  • Like virtualization before it, container technology will evolve from a DevOps initiative to an enterprise requirement. Docker is leading that evolution as it promises to bring greater efficiency to the data center than we ever thought possible with the virtual machine construct. However, companies implementing Docker in production will realize that persistent data storage is not easy. As a result, the development of Docker to an enterprise class solution drives new requirements on the storage infrastructure:

    1. Hyper-Scalability
    2. Advanced but Flexible Data Services
    3. Multiple Access Methods
    4. A Software Foundation
