  • Confused by Big Data? Have applications ideally suited for Big Data but not sure how to manage the infrastructure? Facebook1 ingests 500 terabytes of new data every day; a Boeing2 737 will generate 240 terabytes of flight data during a single flight across the US; the proliferation of smart phones, the data they create and consume; sensors embedded into everyday objects will soon result in billions of new, constantly-updated data feeds containing environmental, location, and other information, including video3.

    The chances are that you are or at some point will be dealing with Big Data driven applications and managing the performance of those applications. In this webcast you will learn about MongoDB and its role in the Big Data universe and the role of APM with Big Data. CA Technologies and MongoDB have teamed to provide database performance insight with CA Application Performance Management to help quickly identify the source of degraded application performance and assure a flawless customer experience.

    Come see how Datical DB and CA Release Automation led to a near 300% increase in the application team’s productivity at a leading Financial Services company.
  • Organizations are under increasing pressure to create business applications that support smartphones, tablets, and desktops and to deploy them to any user on their own device. This diverse and highly fragmented operating environment has increased the complexity of the application developer’s job and the cost of operating and maintaining these applications over time. To make matters more challenging, many organizations also need to to deploy applications to their extended enterprise users -- partners, contractors, consultants and other third-party business collaborators. Deploying apps securely under these conditions can be very challenging if not orchestrated correctly. Learn how the Sencha managed web application platform can help you to deploy, secure, and manage your applications throughout the entire lifecycle.
  • With cloud and mobility changing the technology landscape, the enterprise WAN space has evolved. Technology advancements are enabling IT managers to rethink their enterprise WAN strategy beyond the traditional path of WAN optimization. Whether it’s called next-generation WAN, SD-WAN, hybrid WAN or WAN virtualization, the WAN conversation is back in style. In this session, you will learn how the modern approach to enterprise WAN can help increase application reliability and scale bandwidth while lowering costs.
  • Mobility is the new frontier that is ‘still arriving’ and enterprises are grappling with how best to enable it, keeping enterprise security and employee satisfaction front and center of mind. Inherent in that balance is a careful trade-off as security is paramount but it should not come at the expense of productivity. On one hand is the Wild West with no security whatsoever and happy employees bringing in devices and apps of their choosing. On the other hand are happy enterprises with strict security controls but dissatisfied and disappearing employees! This webcast will help strike a balance that works for both entities - the User and the Enterprise. No utopia promised but you will come away with an understanding of:

    1) What the challenges around Mobility in the Enterprise are
    2) Why you should look into tacking them
    3) How one approach works for both the employees and the enterprises

  • Data breaches of all sorts, affecting credit card providers, retailers and health care providers, suggest that such breaches will continue and grow as a major risk to all organizations and their IT, security, and compliance departments. At the same time, Big Data solutions are gradually becoming more prevalent, connecting many new sources of data and thus potentially increasing both the vulnerability and the magnitude of a data breach. It is no wonder that Stratecast survey data suggest that one of IT managers’ primary concerns with Big Data is security, yet the advantages of Big Data in enabling revenue creation make it very attractive to the business. This panel discussion will explore the security issues around Big Data.

    In particular, the panel will discuss:

    Abstract:
    Agile has established itself as possibly the most effective set of management practices for organizations of all sizes to deliver high-quality, useful products on a much faster schedule. But although Agile allows business to be more responsive, flexible, and engaged, it is not the right fit for every project and every team. For many projects -- especially those requiring high levels of governance and compliance, or those producing physical product -- traditional gated methodologies such as Waterfall excel at bringing the required structure, repeatability, and predictability.

    Join us to learn the benefits and drawbacks of agile and waterfall methodologies, the pros and cons of a hybrid strategy, how agile and waterfall teams can coexist, and how to determine which methodology to choose for your project and organization.

  • User Environment Management (UEM) technologie zorgt ervoor dat alle gebruikers naar tevredenheid kunnen werken op ieder device, terwijl het de IT-omgeving en daarmee het beheer minder complex maakt. Vooral ook in een omgeving met een mix van fysieke en virtuele devices of een combinatie van meerdere devices, locaties of delivery methodes.

    Wil je weten of een UEM-oplossing toegevoegde waarde heeft voor jouw IT-omgeving? Schrijf je dan nu in voor de 5 technische webinars gehost door onze Pre Sales Consultants. Zij gaan in op de vijf belangrijkste redenen om de gebruikerservaring in jouw organisatie naar een hoger niveau te brengen en hoe je dat technisch gezien voor elkaar krijgt.

    Tijdens dit webinar wordt ingegaan op reden #3: IT wil graag meer controle. Naast het bespreken van de techniek, laten onze pre-sales door middel van een demo zien hoe je ervoor kunt zorgen dat je als IT meer controle krijgt doordat je het applicatiebeleid beter kunt beheren, omdat:
    - Per gebruiker applicatie rechten kunnen worden bepaald
    - Alleen vertrouwde applicaties, geïnstalleerd door beheerders, kunnen worden opgestart
    - Alle gebruikers een standaard gebruikersaccount krijgen en local admin accounts niet meer nodig zijn
    - Vervolgens per applicatie en per gebruiker kan worden bepaald welke mogen draaien met adminrechten

  • Desktops Don’t Have to Be the Achilles Heel of Your DR Strategy

    For disaster recovery (DR), you’ve outsourced or virtualized your network, infrastructure, applications and telephony system. Your data is stored in multiple, secure locations, and you’re safe from hurricanes, tornados and blackouts. But what about a pumpkin-spiced latte?

    The desktop is the most overlooked and vulnerable link in your disaster recovery plan. Whether a device is disabled from a coffee spill, a hardware failure, theft or vicious malware, the result is the same: your employee loses access to her desktop, primary lines of communication, and user data. Productivity comes to a grinding halt. One computer, with one access, can snowball into a local or a global problem. You’re only one desktop away from disaster.

    There is a solution: virtualize the desktop. Join Michael McCracken, Director, Professional Services at Hosting, and Steve Prather, CEO of Dizzion, on May 4th, 2015 at [time] for a revealing look at how top planners are now integrating Desktop as a Service (DaaS). This 45-minute webcast is ideal for IT leaders, business risk and compliance professionals, and disaster recovery / business continuity planners.

    Attendees will learn:
    • The basics of Disaster Recovery and accessibility of your data
    • How to extend your DR strategy all the way to the desktop
    • DaaS deployment best practices
