With everyone now transitioning to the cloud, the number one focus seems to be on selecting the right Cloud Service Provider (CSP). While this is important, that decision must be driven by proper enterprise data governance. Since the enterprise and CSP share data security responsibilities in the cloud, a failure to align IT governance and cloud infrastructure controls with this fact will lead to yet another cloud transition failure. This webinar will provide the foresight you need for success during your organization's infrastructure transition to the cloud, and more.

Cloud computing has swept across the IT landscape, but how many businesses are making sweeping changes? CompTIA’s latest cloud research shows that overall cloud adoption is still healthy, but progress along the adoption curve has slowed as companies refine their understanding of the model. This webinar will describe the path to becoming a cloud organization, examine the current state of cloud operations, and review the challenges that remain for full digital transformation.
Arthur Tattersall, Senior Licensing Analyst, Concorde
Cloud service providers like AWS and Azure offer many advantages to the Enterprise, including OPEX operating models, flexible commercial terms and elasticity in computing. In the era of BYOL and License Mobility if you're planning to migrate your existing licensing agreements over to these IaaS environments, you run the risk of eroding your planned savings, creating a suboptimal licensing environment and in the worst case becoming non-complaint. Hear how Concorde has helped leading enterprises gain the visibility and insight to plan for, migrate and manage their licenses to the Cloud and delivered the benefit of Future of Software Asset Management to the IaaS environment.

Join Bernard Golden, author of "Amazon Web Services for Dummies," to participate in the following discussions:
Higher-level cloud services enable next-generation applications
Designing applications beyond Infrastructure-as-a-Service
Managing and monitoring next-generation applications
Addressing lock-in fears
Cost implications associated with using richer cloud services

The topics of interoperability and portability are significant considerations in relation to the use of cloud services, but there is confusion and misunderstanding of exactly what this entails.
Interoperability and Portability for Cloud Computing: A Guide provides a clear definition of interoperability and portability and how these relate to various aspects of cloud computing and to cloud services.
This webinar will describe interoperability and portability in terms of a set of common cloud computing scenarios. This approach assists in demonstrating that both interoperability and portability have multiple aspects and relate to a number of different components in the architecture of cloud computing, each of which needs to be considered in its own right. The aim is to give both cloud service customers and cloud service providers guidance in the provision and selection of cloud services indicating how interoperability and portability affect the cost, security and risk involved.
Past infrastructures provided compute, storage and network enabling static enterprise deployments which changed every few years. This talk will analyze the consequences of a world where production SAP and Spark clusters including data can be provisioned in minutes with the push of a button.
What does it mean for the IT architecture of an enterprise? How to stay in control in a super agile world?

Today's storage world would appear to have been divided into three major and mutually exclusive categories: block, file and object storage. Much of the marketing that shapes much of the user demand would appear to suggest that these are three quite distinct animals, and many systems are sold as exclusively either SAN for block, NAS for file or object. And object is often conflated with cloud, a consumption model that can in reality be block, file or object.
But a fixed taxonomy that divides the storage world this way is very limiting, and can be confusing; for instance, when we talk about cloud. How should providers and users buy and consume their storage? Are there other classifications that might help in providing storage solutions to meet specific or more general application needs?
This webcast will explore clustered storage solutions that not only provide multiple end users access to shared storage over a network, but allow the storage itself to be distributed and managed over multiple discrete storage systems. In this webcast, we’ll discuss:
•General principles and specific clustered and distributed systems and the facilities they provide built on the underlying storage
•Better known file systems like NFS, GPFS and Lustre along with a few of the less well known
•How object based systems like S3 have blurred the lines between them and traditional file based solutions.
This webcast should appeal to those interested in exploring some of the different ways of accessing & managing storage, and how that might affect how storage systems are provisioned and consumed. POSIX and other acronyms may be mentioned, but no rocket science beyond a general understanding of the principles of storage will be assumed. Contains no nuts and is suitable for vegans!
When it comes to Cloud Risk Management, there are a lot of moving parts. From traditional outsourcing, to managed services, to cloud computing, it can get confusing trying to communicate these changes and risks to the Board. In this webinar, you will learn the difference between these key players, how IT security plays a role as cloud communication demands continue to increase, and how to build and consolidate your CSP and Corporate Risk Profile for your organization.
This session covers everything from end-to-end encryption, storage, virtualization, and more! Join us to start putting together your action plan today.

In an SDN-world, every layer of the network is defined as code. This removes the ability to design or rely on physical controls for security and traffic management. Additionally, each new application requires a network architecture concept. It's very easy for large, distributed organizations to get this wrong. How can you ensure that your organization is using software-defined networks in the cloud in EXACTLY the way that you want to be using them? And at scale, that problem only gets more and more challenging. The answer is clear - automation is the key. Design and build rules that can take action in real-time to enforce an SDN configuration with proper policy and security.
To accelerate your business outcomes should you use public or private cloud? The jury has decided and the verdict is: “hybrid.” So you need to manage a hybrid cloud, but what does this exactly mean? Hybrid Cloud Management means managing the entire cloud lifecycle: from design, through workload provisioning, to operations (e.g. monitoring, finance, change, and configuration). This Cloud Model Office webinar will show you Hybrid Cloud Management use cases in action. In this webinar you will see how you can implement capabilities like
Dynamic scalability (flexing)
Hybrid cloud provisioning
Capacity-driven service provisioning
Automated Change & Configuration management

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.
All you need to know, what it means and why it matters
Cloud computing is a general concept that incorporates software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and other recent well-known technology trends in which the common theme is reliance on the Internet for satisfying the computing needs of the users.
This channel features presentations by thought leaders who cover the key topic areas in this increasingly important field.

As UX consultant at eProseed, partner of Oracle, I currently design UXs of B2B apps to be used on an Oracle platform. For a B2B application to be a successful User Experience, it needs to fulfil requirements from different angles. Users want the app to be useful and usable. Developers need the app to be easy to develop and the customer wants the app to provide business value.
Asa UX designer I'm always in the middle. I know the different requirements and of course I put the user first and foremost. At the same time I make sure that all stakeholders know the users by defining personas and usage scenarios.
I design the app for a user to use in any required context (at home, at work, in public transport etc.) By applying the "glance, scan, commit" design philosophy, I make sure that the UX helps the user to fulfil all required work related tasks.
At the same time i use standard (user tested) Oracle UX patterns to design the app in a way that it's easy for developers to build the UX. By applying these patterns and the Oracle guidelines, the time to develop the uX is reduced, which also makes the customer happy.
How I do all this, I will explain in this webinar.
Oggi l’Application Economy richiede un approccio Agile anche nel controllo quotidiano delle infrastrutture IT e nel controllo delle sue performance.
Gli ambienti IT tendono sempre di più ad essere eterogenei con la presenza di sistemi legacy e cloud sia in forma privata che pubblica (hybrid cloud). Allo stesso tempo agli operation manager viene chiesto di essere proattivi e sempre più veloci nel tenere sotto controllo lo stato dei servizi di business erogati.
Un approccio ai tool di monitoraggio a “silos” non risponde a questi requisiti e rischia di mantenere alti i tempi di risoluzione delle criticità e dei problemi (MTTR alti).
CA Unified Infrastructure Monitoring (UIM) consente di avere una visibilità a 360 gradi sulle applicazioni, servizi e infrastruttura (fino al mainframe) in modo moderno e ottimale unificando i vari tools di monitoraggio dipartimentali, offrendo un controllo puntuale sia sui sistemi più tradizionali che sulle nuove tecnologie cloud e micro-service.
