  • Sutter Health is a not-for-profit health system serving more than 100 communities in Northern California. Each year its 5,000 physicians care for more than 10 million outpatient visits and discharge more than 200,000 in-patients.

    As healthcare systems transition from “fee for service” to “fee for value” reimbursement models, there is an increasing focus to drive down 30-day re-admission rates, particularly for high risk patients. To this end, Sutter Health is piloting Project RED (Re-engineered Discharge) which leverages predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients and then prescribes alternative discharge workflows aimed at lowering the risk of re-admission.

    Join us as Kristen Wilson-Jones, Sutter RD&D CTO, shares how Sutter Health has leveraged MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform in an orchestrated plecosystem of technologies to power Project RED by enabling real-time patient risk scoring, clinical workflow management and bi-directional integration with Epic.

    Topics covered
    -------------------
    + How Sutter Health is lowering 30-day re-admission rates by re-engineeing clinical workflows
    + The need for connectivity to enable workflow re-design
    + Best practice in moving from an application-centric to a data object-centric connectivity approach
  • Modern performance tools and techniques can dramatically improve the user experience, reduce developer and ops frustration, lead to better utilization of infrastructure and allow you to smartly ship products to market faster.

    Working with many companies across all industries, we recognize the pitfalls and barriers to adopting DevOps. The Rackspace DevOps Automation team works with various tools every day to counteract these pitfalls. Join Product Manager @EricBrinkman as he shows you the technologies our DevOps Automation team uses, provide insight as to why they were chosen, and walk through a customer experience demo.

    This webinar will include:
    •Deploying Magento through UI and pushing code
    •A look into the control panel
    •Demo of New Relic and Chef
    •Simulation of Rackspace customer experience
  • Gartner has predicted 18-20% growth in SaaS market, and expects it to hit US $22.1 billion by the year 2015. They have also measured that SaaS adoption rate has increased many fold in the last few years (almost 71% of enterprises use SaaS solutions).

    SaaS has come a long way from “hype” to “norm”. The key to this change is the confidence that has been built by the cloud/SaaS community by providing enterprise class security. Since, SaaS model of delivery has become a defacto standard of delivering products it’s critical for software providers to ensure that their SaaS product meets the required industry security standards. In this webinar, we will address the security aspects related to architecture, deployment and management of SaaS solutions.

    Key Takeaways:
    • Security considerations in each of the architecture layers
    • Data isolation risks and mitigation plans
    • Overview of CWE/SANS and OWASP Security threats
    • Data retention and termination policies
    • Infrastructure and cloud related security risks and solutions
  • Modern software development practices dominated by component-based engineering and short development cycles have largely been a catalyst for rapid advancements in technology. These practices, however, have also resulted in an epidemic of known vulnerabilities baked into third-party software components of IoT applications and devices. These widespread security flaws, many of which are critical in nature, often remain unnoticed or unaddressed throughout the software or device lifecycle, posing significant risks to the people and organizations that rely on them.

    As software continues to permeate the ever-expanding Internet of Things, software vulnerabilities represent a greater and greater threat. IoT devices, like traditional computers, run on software that is susceptible to malicious attacks. As more devices become connected, understanding how to identify and manage security vulnerabilities within widely used third-party software components is critical for all stakeholders, including manufacturers and end-users.

    In this webinar, our diverse panel of security experts will:
    •Propose an expanded definition and understanding of IoT and the stakeholders at risk
    •Present research highlighting the pervasiveness of vulnerabilities in third-party software components of IoT devices
    •Draw some conclusions about the state of software security in IoT today
    •Discuss some simple approaches to addressing these problems
  • The Identity and Access Market (IAM) is undergoing exciting changes. Increased cloud adoption, cyber-threats and the speedy adoption of mobile computing is affecting how enterprises approach access security and authentication.

    Getting insight into these trends can help you prepare your organization for better and more effective Identity and Access policies during the coming year.

    Join us on for a webinar on “IAM and Authentication Trends in 2015”, on March 24, 2015, where you can hear all about Identity and Access trends and developments from an industry expert.
  • L’objectif de ce webcast est de présenter comment la technologie permet d’atteindre les objectifs DevOps en éliminant les contraintes et les goulots d'étranglement qui perturbent la production de valeur pour les clients finaux

    Why DevOps is the answer to Digital Transformation
    The objective of this webcast is to show how technology allows to reach the DevOps objectives by eliminating constraints and bottlenecks that disrupt the production of value for end users
  • A lack of manpower and a dearth of resources are often major obstacles for organizations striving to achieve and maintain HIPAA and/or PCI compliance. Compliance guidelines are complex and difficult to decipher, even for the most experienced IT professionals. Recent headlines regarding unprecedented security and compliance breaches are causing companies to examine compliance-as-a-service (CaaS) solutions offered by cloud providers. But with the myriad of options available, it’s difficult for companies to discern which CaaS best fits their needs.

    Join Johan Hybinette, HOSTING Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), as he discusses the benefits and risks associated with CaaS. Drawing upon his 20+ years’ of experience in information security and compliance, Johan will also offer tips for selecting the right CaaS for your business. Bring your questions and leave with the information you need to confidently invest in a CaaS solution.
  • Greater than 80% of today’s breaches occur with application software, yet many companies continue to invest in ‘over the wire’ solutions that are not solving the problem. Runtime Application Self-Protection, or RASP, is an emerging market that promises to protect applications from the inside. Using the rich context of the application’s logic and associated core libraries, RASP identifies attacks in ‘real-time’ and stops them. Implementation is quick and requires no changes to your application’s code. Join us to learn more about what RASP can do for you.

    Learn:
    •Why context from inside the application matters
    •How easy it can be to use native capabilities of Java and .NET to protect your applications
    •Use cases to get you started.

    Help lead your enterprise to a stronger, more effective security program.
  • Security and Scalability in the Hybrid Cloud: How to get one without losing the other

    Traditionally, you had to design for a focus on scalability or security in the cloud, but not both. Now with services that connect virtual and real computers together, you can achieve cloud scale while satisfying the most stringent security requirements. Join Rackspace’s Matt Shover and Joseph Palumbo Thursday, March 19th to learn:

    •Top reasons why people choose the cloud
    •Top reason why people think the cloud isn’t the best fit for them
    •What is scaling?
    •How do you scale?
    •How does the hybrid cloud help scale your application?
    •How does the hybrid cloud help secure your application?
    •So how do you build a hybrid environment?

  • When a leading bank states that “in online mortgage sales, a simple change in the colour of a Website calculator resulted in a 10% increase in sales”, it is a reminder of the significant impact the smallest updates in a digital presence can have. However, DevOps adoption faces a major barrier in the enterprise in overcoming organisational debt – historical decisions that will constrain transformation and quick release cycles.
    This webinar explores:
    •the value of marginal gains made through incremental improvements
    •the pitfalls of marginal losses that can build into significant organisational debt
    •and highlights ways in which DevOps can overcome challenges to make a positive impact
