Everyone is talking about DevOps, scaling Agile, and delivering software faster and with great quality. For many traditional companies in banking, insurance, automotive, manufacturing and healthcare, trying to adopt DevOps or Agile are daunting tasks. There has to be a marriage between adopting new processes and tools, and using the existing processes and tools that are necessary for enterprise-scale software development and delivery. Join us in the webinar to discuss:
•The elements of a DevOps, Agile or Lean transformation
•The realities of DevOps, Agile or Lean at enterprise-scale
•Common pitfalls in executing a transformation
•How using lifecycle integration and automation of handoffs in the development process are critical to avoiding these mistakes
Edward L. Haletky & Mike Kavis, TVP Strategy, and Andi Mann, Splunk
Today we have made release cycles of new code take no more than 15m. By doing so we have lost some of the tools we have used in the past. Tools to maintain Code Quality. We use metrics that are about people more than we use metrics about code.
If we are lucky, we have automated and orchestrated the deployment into production, but that is not how developers work, not how Q/A works, and most importantly no how we measure quality.
Join this panel discussion with TVP Strategy (The Virtualization Practice) and Splunk to explore how to add quality back into our code by creating repeatable processes, measure those processes, and use automation and orchestration from beginning to end for all use cases.
We hope you may find some new ideas to implement with your team. The field of Performance Engineering is changing rapidly over the last few years due to technology and perception of the field by the business areas. The presentation today will cover several areas that have proven successful in this new era of engineering.

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

Database triggers, coupled with cloud technology and the growing popularity of APIs (application program interfaces) have beefed up the capabilities of continuous auditing. Industries of all sorts, from banking, to ecommerce, to supply chain, to logistics, use applications that incorporate software that instantly alerts stake holders to outliers in data. This is exactly what we auditors need in our profession. Instead, we and our clients continue to rely on annual audits for third party assurance. Fees for the traditional annual audits spiral downward because all of us know that there is little value in an audit opinion on year old information.
Greg Frazier, CPA & Microsoft Certified Partner- Application Development will discuss the following:
- What is continuous auditing?
- How are continuous audits more valuable than traditional audits?
- How are continuous audits more cost-effective than traditional audits?
Join us in this session to deep-dive into cloud accounting tools and technologies such as QuickBooks, networks in the cloud, data captures, and more!

Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
Join us on July 19th to learn:
•Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
•Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
•Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
•How the CDMI standard works
•Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
•Benefits for end user companies

2015 was a record year for data breaches in the cloud. Many of these could have been reduced, or even eliminated, with proper policy compliance in the cloud. This webinar will cover how to design and apply policy to your cloud infrastructure to reduce the risk of security breaches, shadow IT and other threats.

Building Cloud Native Applications securely is more than using containers or building with orchestration and automation. It is a lifecycle which includes moving security from external sources directly into the application. To move security into the application requires knowledge of the application, security, and testing. Developers need to learn more about security, but as they do, the process must also change to protect the developer, the application, and to improve security testing in an automatic method. Automation and Orchestration is crucial, but so is finding out what was done wrong, so it can be corrected. The key to this is a Secure Agile Cloud Development architecture and process. Join us to deep-dive into these processes and best practices for secure application development and management.

Like all cyber threats, ransomware continues to evolve and its effects will cause significantly greater impact to corporate organizations and networks. Just as computer viruses caused more damage as they grew in sophistication, ransomware is increasing its way to enter networks and wreak more havoc. Newer strains now know to look for networked file shares as encryption targets. Do you know what signals to look for to detect ransomware as it begins to attack? Exabeam researchers have analyzed nearly 100 strains of malware and have categorized some of the more aggressive techniques being used. Join Exabeam and (ISC)2 on August 18, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern and gain a better understanding of the mechanisms ransomware might use to propagate and how to detect signs of these mechanisms in use.
Pokemon Go has taken the gaming world by storm.

In part 2 of this compelling Masters of Mobile Data series, you'll learn that there’s no such thing as a smartphone user, tablet user, or web user. Rather, it’s the same user who hops between the different experiences. By the same logic, there’s no point in developing a “push messaging” strategy when what you need is a holistic communications strategy.
How are some companies able to use mobile as part of a broader customer engagement strategy, when so many others struggle to even get mobile right within its own silo? How are these marketers able to know what’s really working, taking into account all of the various multichannel effects that drive people to the app and from the app into transactions that occur outside the app, using real data, not guesswork.
Join our group of experts from retail, ecommerce, and travel as they review what works and what doesn’t when it comes to omnichannel success.
