  • Protection of ePHI Not Making the Grade?   Automate Risk and Compliance
    Protection of ePHI Not Making the Grade? Automate Risk and Compliance Anupam Sahai, Vice President Product Management, Cavirin Systems Recorded: Sep 21 2017 29 mins
    Is your cybersecurity protection making the grade? Healthcare rates a 'C' in security, almost half of US residents have been compromised, and the end-user impact is tens of billions of dollars a year.

    An easy first step is understanding the attack vectors and automating HIPAA technical controls. This automation lets you quickly understand your baseline security posture both on-premise and within the public cloud, where you have gaps, and how to remediate them.
  • The Low Code Movement – Disruption with Power
    The Low Code Movement – Disruption with Power Jason Bloomberg, President of Intellyx and Renu Motwani, Sr. Director of Product Management at CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 21 2017 64 mins
    The low code movement is erupting in the enterprise, creating some confusion but also providing opportunity. The boundaries between IT and Lines of Business are blurring as a need for agility and velocity drives adoption of less code-centric development tools. Low code approaches to building microservices and APIs offer a way to simplify complex application development and data integration into graphical, declarative configuration, thus accelerating the development lifecycle and making developers more efficient and productive. This provides an opportunity to accelerate delivery of key initiatives without sacrificing quality.

    Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, will discuss the low code movement, its impact on the enterprise and developers, and its future. Renu Motwani, Product Manager for CA Live API Creator, will then discuss CA’s low code solution for creating and executing low code APIs and microservices, and provide a demonstration of its capabilities.
  • Accelerate the BusDevOps Cycle with Storyteller and HPE ALM
    Accelerate the BusDevOps Cycle with Storyteller and HPE ALM Susan D'Angelo Recorded: Sep 21 2017 52 mins
    Agile works well for small, co-located teams that can hover around sticky notes on a Kanban board, and collaborate on-demand. But as initiatives become more complex, and teams become dispersed, Agile can be difficult to scale across the enterprise.

    What’s missing in Agile practices today is the ability to see the whole picture. With user stories as the source of record for an application, it’s hard to connect all the dots to see the complete functionality of a feature or capability. Think about the new team who will be developing additional features on that capability - where can they learn everything it does today? How will they know the impact their changes will have on that capability or potentially other capabilities? How will they collaborate on those changes and get them reviewed in a timely manner? How will your business stakeholder understand the impact of new those changes to the overall business process? Storyteller provides a centralized reusable searchable repository of exiting business and technical process models and requirements (business, non-functional and regulatory). In addition we also offer rich visualization, collaboration and review functionalities. These base capabilities are being used today to address the questions above. And - we do it in a way that everyone can understand from Business Stakeholders down to developers and testers.

    Storyteller is a key player in Enterprise Agile. We bridge the business gaps in the current agile process. For companies struggling with Agile Transformation, we providing guardrails around writing user stories and feature decomposition. Project teams can save time and effort by using our user story and test plan generation which can them be automatically synched over to ALM tools. We are also a key player in the BizDevOps chain by providing that upfront business alignment so what is produced though “Dev” and delivered and maintained by “Ops” is exactly what “Biz” wanted.

  • The Blockchain Bubble: Identifying viable  opportunities for blockchain
    The Blockchain Bubble: Identifying viable opportunities for blockchain Joe Pindar, CTO Office Director of Strategy Sep 26 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Blockchain technology is popping up everywhere from the currency market to smart contracts. The growth in the technology is evident from the investments being made, for example, PwC estimated that in the last nine last nine months of 2016, $1.4 billion had been invested globally in blockchain startups. This stems from its potential to enable efficiencies and cost-saving opportunities based on moving to a decentralized approach and away from the current centralized systems. With all the hype around blockchain, companies need to cut through the hype and ask the question - when does blockchain actually make business sense?

    Blockchain is not a silver bullet and cannot solve every problem. There is also the added complexity of managing the security of many distributed nodes can only be justified by gaining business benefits from using blockchain. In this webinar, we will look at a business qualifying approach to blockchain to help you evaluate valid blockchain use cases and identify the security needs surrounding blockchain operations. Join us to learn more on:
    •Securing blockchain from the edge to the core
    •The operational benefits and pitfalls of blockchain technology
    •Our 4 step qualification process for blockchain business opportunities:
    1.Is there an established business process?
    2.Are there more 3 parties involved – i.e. is it a distributed problem?
    3.Is it important that the data being exchanged is trusted and considered to be factually accurate?
    4.Would automation improve the performance of the process?

    Conversational interfaces are ubiquitous and take many forms, from chatbots on the web to voice bots on your appliances (Siri, what is a voice bot?)

    We are now seeing these features evolve in Virtual Reality: in role-playing games such as Star Trek Bridge Crew and much more. For developers and conversational designers, it is important to understand on which medium the message is being communicated.

    Join this webcast with Anamita Guha, Product Manager of IBM Watson's Developer & AR/VR Labs, as she shares some best practices for designing conversations in VR between the user and your virtual entity.
