  • Take a Requirements-Driven Approach to Better Software Take a Requirements-Driven Approach to Better Software Jonathon Wright, Director of Digital Assurance, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 25 2016 60 mins
    Case studies show that the vast majority of defects creating havoc in production software are not introduced by developers or testers, but by requirements. Rather than alleviating this problem, agile development practices have introduced a new one: Testers must navigate a constant barrage of disparate user stories and change requests.

    In order for development teams to keep up with constantly changing user needs, requirements must be captured in a format that minimizes miscommunication, reacts quickly to change, and enables subsequent test assets to be derived automatically.

    Learn a requirements-driven approach that:
    - Captures user needs in a format already familiar to business analysts
    - Allows testers to automatically generate optimized test cases, test scripts, data, and expected results
    - Automatically reflects changes made to the requirements in the test assets

  • Improve Lending Portfolio Performance with Data Optimization Improve Lending Portfolio Performance with Data Optimization Spencer Robinson, Head of Strategy, Kabbage Recorded: Sep 22 2016 61 mins
    The financial crisis brought about huge losses to a large number of financial institutions and exposed many of the internal inefficiencies leveraged to manage risk and data within and across divisions. Today, things have changed dramatically. Despite the many regulatory changes over the years, marketplace lenders have been extremely successful implementing predictive modeling and data aggregation to assess consumers’ and small businesses’ financial health.

    New lending technologies allow lenders to improve customer satisfaction by creating a personalized and unique customer experience. By taking into consideration personal, transactional, application, and product-selection data from financial institutions, lenders are able to leverage this data for other opportunities such as cross-selling credit products during the loan-application process. These innovations ultimately provide borrowers with an intuitive and simplified borrowing process.

    In this webinar you’ll:

    * Get insight into the trends and opportunities driving change in the lending and credit risk management industries

  • The Blind Men and the Elephant: Reducing Risk with Hadoop Visibility The Blind Men and the Elephant: Reducing Risk with Hadoop Visibility Eric Hansleman 451 Research and Jim Waring BMC Recorded: Sep 22 2016 50 mins
    Hadoop is a wonderful framework that can drive insight into a range of problems, but administrators can be blind to performance, utilization and cost issues of cluster deployments. There’s risk in sizing initial deployments properly, as well as determining optimal capacity over time. Without sufficient visibility, job performance can suffer and costs can escalate. Keeping a critical resource running effectively and being able to plan for the future requires intelligent decision making capabilities that many Hadoop deployments lack. This webinar will look into common problems that affect clusters and ways to detect issues early and head off long term problems. We’ll dig into capacity management and ways to deal with ever increasing demands for Hadoop resources.

    Key points:

    • Understand initial deployment challenges
    • Handling cluster growth
    • Working to meet increasing pressure on storage and job density
    • Planning for capacity growth and extension to cloud
  • Contain your risk: Deploy secure containers with trust and confidence Contain your risk: Deploy secure containers with trust and confidence Brent Baude, Principle Software Engineer, Atomic and Docker Development, Red Hat; Randy Kilmon, VP, Engineering, Black Duck Recorded: Sep 22 2016 51 mins
    Organizations are increasingly turning to container environments to meet the demand for faster, more agile software development. But a 2015 study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Red Hat revealed that 53% of IT operations and development decision makers at global enterprises reported container security concerns as a barrier to adoption.

    The challenges of managing security risk increase in scope and complexity when hundreds or even thousands of different open source software components and licenses are part of your application code base. Since 2014, more than 6,000 new open source security vulnerabilities have been reported, making it essential to have good visibility into and control over the open source in use in order to understand if any known vulnerabilities are present.

    In this webinar, experts from Red Hat and Black Duck will share the latest insights and recommendations for securing the open source in your containers, including protecting them from vulnerabilities like Heartbleed, Shellshock and Venom. You’ll learn:
    • Why container environments present new application security challenges, including those posed by ever-increasing open source use.
    • How to scan applications running in containers to identify open source in use and map known open source security vulnerabilities.
    • Best practices and methodologies for deploying secure containers with trust and confidence.

    The new ruling by the Department of Labor became law this past June requiring the retirement industry to comply with the covenants by April 10, 2017, with exemptions phasing in through January 1, 2018. The rule drastically changes how financial advice is provided in the United States. It will introduce intense pressure on financial advisors to change the traditional advisory model from commission to fee-based compensation and will substantially change product fees and features.

    Unfortunately, Retirement Planning, Wealth Management, Insurance companies, 401K companies large and small that look to comply with the new rule will face more scrutiny and reporting requirements that will expose holes in existing data management processes and technologies. Learn what some of these data challenges are, why they exist and why they have been difficult to address, and finally solutions to consider for this requirement and other regulations that require Great Data!
  • How To Design a Great B2B UX Which Makes Users and Developers Happy How To Design a Great B2B UX Which Makes Users and Developers Happy Mascha van Oosterhout, User Experience Consultant, eProseed Recorded: Sep 21 2016 27 mins
    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.

  • CA UIM per il controllo di infrastrutture IT tradizionali e ambienti cloud CA UIM per il controllo di infrastrutture IT tradizionali e ambienti cloud Luigi Benocci & Cristiana Darra, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 21 2016 42 mins
    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.

  • Modern Cookbook Design Modern Cookbook Design Kevin Dickerson, Loom Sep 27 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    If you’re a typical Chef user, you learned cookbook design by writing recipes and then tuning functionality with node attributes—and you probably didn’t focus too much on the underlying Ruby concepts. This approach can lead to messy designs that are more difficult to verify and maintain.

    Chef’s fundamental building blocks are resources, not recipes. In this webinar, Kevin Dickerson of Loom (a Chef Certified Partner), will demonstrate a resource-centric approach to designing and verifying cookbooks that can reduce defects, increase clarity, and provide greater isolation of logic and various configuration concerns.

    Kevin will show you how to create and use resources and resource properties instead of emulating resources with recipes. He’ll also teach you how to verify cookbooks, and how verification is simplified when a resource is only concerned with the conditions that affect its behavior.

    You’ll also be introduced to some Ruby concepts that don’t seem to get a lot of attention—after all, Chef cookbooks are written in Ruby.

  • Using App SaaSification as a key to build digital infrastructure Using App SaaSification as a key to build digital infrastructure Suresh Subramanian, Solutions Architect Sr Manager, Cloud Sep 28 2016 1:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    The greatest value the cloud offers is the ability to use technology to scale business processes quickly and make them more consumable. It enables them to run as a service, giving developers and operators more flexibility to stand up a service, sort out what works and what doesn’t, and ultimately improve the user experience. As they say in Silicon Valley, it allows developers to “fail fast” and repeat.

    The so-called “SaaSification” of business is driving innovation and smart organizations get this—they are seizing the moment, creating dynamic services on a platform, consumable by large groups of users at any time. According to some recent industry analyst estimates, 34 percent of enterprises will have 60 percent or more of their applications on a cloud platform within two years.

    During this webcast you will learn:
    -How App SaaSification allows companies to use their new found IT “assets” in ways they haven’t before
    - How App Saasification saves the companies from having to buy any additional infrastructure or expensive platforms. Instead, they were able to scale up and down cost-effectively to offer an additional, value-added product that enhanced customers’ viewing experience

  • GamesBeat: How to get gamers to love your games and love your brand GamesBeat: How to get gamers to love your games and love your brand Matt Marshall, CEO, VentureBeat Sep 29 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Building brand affection is one of the best things you can do for any product. Think about it -- do you ask for a tissue or do you ask for a Kleenex? Do you look for a plastic bandage or do you ask for a Band-Aid? Do you "use a search engine to find out information about your blind date" or do you Google them?

    This is more than performance marketing -- which evolved solely to drive transactions and downloads -- this is awareness marketing. And for the games community, it's about getting people to remember and associate an emotion with your game, so they seek it out now -- and later. But brand awareness is hard to measure -- and hard to get your arms around. Many games teams spend little to no budget, favoring the results-focused performance marketing. We're going to show you how to be better than them -- and get the advantage for your mobile game, starting today.

    GamesBeat's own Dean Takahashi will sit down with execs from the gaming industry such as Seriously's VP of marketing and Eli Danziger, product manager for YouTube Ads. Together, we'll discuss storytelling and brand awareness marketing tips tailored to mobile games today.

    In this third installment of our Building Games Communities series, you will:

    * Learn how to use YouTube and other channels to drive brand awareness for mobile games;
    * Find the right time to invest in brand awareness marketing in your mobile game lifecycle; and
    * Understand the right KPIs to measure ROI on awareness marketing.

    Our esteemed panel for this rockstar discussion includes:

    * Matt Marshall, CEO, VentureBeat
    * Phil Hickey, VP Marketing and Communications; Seriously
    * Eli Danziger, product manager, YouTube
    * Wendy Schuchart, Moderator, GamesBeat

  • Data Center Agility with Software-defined Load Balancing and NFV Data Center Agility with Software-defined Load Balancing and NFV Guru Chahal – VP of Product Management, Avi Networks and Gunnar Anderson – Product Manager, Cisco CNSG Sep 29 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Load balancing and what load balancers can do are undergoing significant changes as enterprises seek to deploy cloud-native applications in data centers and public clouds. According to Gartner, “Application-centric personnel are driving a return to lightweight, disaggregated load balancers, creating challenges and opportunities for I&O leaders.”

    Simultaneously, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) is now reaching mainstream enterprises with the Cisco Cloud Services Platform (CSP) 2100. Avi Networks and Cisco CSP integrate to provide a turn-key solution for the rapid deployment of application services such as load balancing, analytics, and autoscaling on an elastic NFV platform, without requiring any additional expertise. The joint solution ensures that administrators can efficiently roll out elastic, high-performance, load balancing and application monitoring capabilities.

    Join Avi Networks and Cisco guest speaker, Gunnar Anderson to learn how enterprises now have an opportunity to take advantage of software-defined load balancing and NFV quickly and easily using:

    • Standard x86 servers
    • Virtualized/software-based functions
    • API-driven approach
    • Elastic scaling to millions of SSL TPS
  • How to Optimize Security Controls for DevOps How to Optimize Security Controls for DevOps Adrian Sanabria, Senior Analyst at 451 Research, & Sami Laine, Principal Technologist at CloudPassage Sep 29 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The widespread adoption of DevOps and agile IT delivery systems presents new security challenges. Developers need security tools that are integrated with their build processes so they can test the integrity and security of their applications within minutes. Similarly, infosec managers need security tools that automatically discover and protect new applications as they are delivered via rapid automation and elastic processes. But traditional security tools don’t do either of these things. Thus, security is increasingly viewed as a blocker to agile software development and DevOps deployment. To solve this problem, security has to fundamentally evolve from a production-time concept to something that is much more automated and embedded into the dev-test-build cycle itself,

    Attend this webinar to learn:
    •Why trying to use traditional security tools in DevOps environments will slow down both developers and security operations
    •Key attributes you should be thinking about to make your security plan future-proof
    •Where can security automation be applied to better align security with DevOps delivery models

  • The API Economy in Banking what is the impact of PSD 2 The API Economy in Banking what is the impact of PSD 2 Anju Tiwari, Enterprise Architect, Dell Services Oct 3 2016 1:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Regulatory conditions are preventing many banks from consolidating in the market, and there is evidence to support those financial institutions will need to re-engineer their own businesses, and customer propositions, and transform current models to remain relevant, nurture and grow their customer bases.

    As part of this process, developing differentiating capabilities will be key in highly competitive markets and innovation through the adoption of the new ‘Fintech ecosystem’ or “fintegration” (i.e. the marrying up of banks and Fintechs) will be pivotal in the banking industry’s fight to maintain their current business and grow. Join Anju Tiwari,Senior Enterprise Architect, Dell Services, guest speakers from the Banking Sector to be announced to learn about:

  • Innovations & Transformation in Quality Assurance in Banking Innovations & Transformation in Quality Assurance in Banking Paul Steel, SVP, Operations & Technology, Mastercard Prepaid Management & Sourhab Dixit,EMEA Practice Leader Dell Svcs Oct 4 2016 1:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    With the growth of smart phones, tablets and new operating systems requiring constant updates daily, Quality Assurance and Testing are more critical than ever before important within the IT life cycle of a bank.

    There is increasingly high focus on the Customer, the Business & the User Experience & not just the Defects. As the word implies, digital is all about code - application code, business logic, customer data and user interfaces. While every disruptive digital business relies on back-office transactional and analytics systems, the public face of these companies is code in the form of websites, social media posts and mobile apps.

    Older legacy systems and applications need to be tested for security, resilience and scalability, in addition digital testing for mobility& cloud & analytics is paramount if adopting new digital business models. As the business paradigm shifts to new DevOps style development models and new IT environments implemented, IT life cycles are moving, & implementing Development and Testing cannot be done in isolation. The time consuming models from the past are long over and as everyone comes together, there is a strong need and focus on automation. In today’s new environments, Applications can be Tested and released every two weeks instead of once a quarter as was in the past. In Dell Services there has been significant experimenting with these new models with a lot of success.

    From Omni channel optimisation to managing risk & regulatory compliance, industry leaders need to work smarter to remain competitive. Whether it's driving innovation or delivering new efficiencies & cost reduction.
