  • How To Ensure A Successful Modernization Project How To Ensure A Successful Modernization Project Bill Porter-Global IT Leader, DuPont ; Cameron Jenkins-Director Application Modernization, Dell Services Recorded: Jul 28 2016 44 mins
    Often, we see modernization programs are driven by technical teams to resolve technical or infrastructure-related objectives without any input or insight from business teams. The downfall with a single-track view is not only myopic, serving limited purposes for a limited time, but also it can prove to be a wrong decision in the long run.

    In some instances, we’ve seen customers opting for a re-host or automated code conversion, whereas an application re-architecture or re-write would’ve been a better long-term and cost-effective solution for the business. That’s why it’s critical for companies to get a holistic view of their modernization project first, and then have a robust plan to achieve their objective.

    Interact live with DuPont and gain insights on how to ensure a successful modernization project, lessons learned, and critical success factors. See how Dell Services’ Strategic Modernization Roadmap (SMR) approach is holistic and collaborative for application modernization projects.

  • Learn 7 Highly Effective Application Security Assurance Techniques Learn 7 Highly Effective Application Security Assurance Techniques Amy DeMartine, App Security Expert, Forrester & SaiLakshmi.S, Director Application Security, Dell Recorded: Jul 27 2016 53 mins
    Today, web application security vulnerabilities, including mobile threats, are the attack of choice for organized cybercrime. Year after year, the costs of these breaches increase — even going beyond monetary loss to affect an organization’s reputation. It’s no wonder that securing web applications in this constantly changing threat landscape has become the leading challenge facing chief information security officers (CISOs) and chief technology officers (CTOs). From threats to on-premises and cloud environments, to the increase in endpoints such as browsers and mobile applications, to heightened pressures to speed app delivery to market, it’s critical to have application security assurance as part of a mature overall security practice. Application security assurance services provide much-needed roadmap for processes and methodologies to ensure a secure systems development lifecycle (SDLC).

  • Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Shift-Left Performance Testing for Shift-Forward Quality Nathan Devoll, SV Consultant, CA Technologies Recorded: Jul 26 2016 54 mins
    Traditional performance testing typically requires that all components of the application are “completed,” integrated and deployed into an appropriate environment. This results in testing not being done until late in the delivery cycle or sometimes skipped entirely. Which can then lead to a less then optimal user experience, expensive rework and potential loss of business.

    Many organizations are adopting service virtualization to overcome the key challenges associated with performance testing. During this session see why and specifically how service virtualization:
    •Enables you to do testing early in the dev cycle by simulating unavailable production systems and missing components
    •Helps you control the inputs (like response times and 3rd party system responses) so you can do more negative and exploratory testing
    •Provisions performance test environments “in a box” for on-demand testing
    •Works with CA APM so that you can monitor an app during a load and performance test and see how the app reacts
  • Application-Defined Data Center: The Next Stop in Datacenter Evolution Application-Defined Data Center: The Next Stop in Datacenter Evolution Jay Lyman, 451 Research and Sushil Kumar, Robin Systems Recorded: Jul 26 2016 56 mins
    Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.

    A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.

  • Maintaining Organizational Trust in IT: Is Your Data Ready for a Disaster? Maintaining Organizational Trust in IT: Is Your Data Ready for a Disaster? Dan Thompson, 451 Research; John Freimuth, Digital Realty Aug 11 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    For many firms, particularly smaller and medium-sized ones, disaster recovery (DR) systems are seen as necessary but expensive and they are low on the list of priorities. This was certainly true in previous years, when backup/DR involved copying data regularly to a duplicate set of hardware, often in a second datacenter. However, with the growth of cloud and prevalence of colocation, there are ever more options for backup and DR, including DR-as-a-Service options that can be much more cost-effective.

    However, IT decision makers have been primed to proceed with caution when it comes to the transition of services from inside their four walls to a cloud provider’s data center – and for good reason. The dizzying array of services offered today, and the perceived loss of control, weigh heavy on the minds of admins and leadership alike.

    If disaster recovery is important to you, but you’re unsure how to navigate the litany of products and services available today, get started by understanding the basics, and learn about what your peers are doing to solve the real world problems of DR.

    In this webinar we’ll take a look at 3 key considerations when doing DR planning:

    1.How have cloud services changed the possibilities for RTO / RPO objectives?

    2.Why are latency and carrier options important to DR planning?

    3.Why (and how) are other organizations leveraging colocation as part of their overall DR strategy?

  • Masters of Mobile Data: Harnessing Mobile to Drive Omnichannel Success Masters of Mobile Data: Harnessing Mobile to Drive Omnichannel Success Brian Kim, VP of Media & Acquisition, Dollar Shave Club Aug 17 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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.

    In this webinar you’ll learn:
    * How to think about mobile apps versus the web, and the role of mobile in the wider customer journey
    * How omnichannel marketers integrate user preferences and profile information across multiple sources
    * Mobile strategies that work in an omnichannel environment (hint: it’s more than in-app messaging and email)
    * Techniques for leveraging user-knowledge to personalize messages across channels

    Speakers:
    * Brian Kim, VP of Media & Acquisition, Dollar Shave Club
    * Wendy Schuchart, Analyst, VentureBeat

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.
  • Hacking mobile retail: Marketing automation for LTV Hacking mobile retail: Marketing automation for LTV Marissa Tarleton, CMO, RetailMeNot Aug 18 2016 7:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Shoppers have an unlimited number of retail apps that promise to deliver the right product at the right price at the right time. The latest and greatest app bells and whistles may attract the new user, but developing them into a long-term follower/ user is easier said than done. It’s easier to get them then to keep them, after all.

    With an increasing number of apps on a user’s device, app marketers are challenged to draw the user's attention not only through efficient user acquisition initiatives, but also via engagement and retention activities. Leveraging marketing automation technology to increase user lifetime value and minimize cost per install is the crux of the issue. Let VentureBeat’s panel of experts shed light on how to use marketing automation to implement acquisition strategies that work.

    By identifying synergies between acquisition and user engagement, this webinar hits the high points of reactivation tactics (via push, email, retargeting) and virality initiatives to increase LTV and lower CPI.

    In this webinar, you will:

    * Harness the power of marketing automation to build a user acquisition program that works
    * Explore key strategies for efficient, highly-optimized user acquisition
    * Gain new best practices for engaging and retaining users while reducing churn
