  • Mastering IT Metrics
    Mastering IT Metrics Quentin McPhee, Implementation Manager, Vivantio Recorded: May 17 2018 54 mins
    IT monitoring and metrics play a key role in measuring IT service management success. By properly analyzing, understanding and measuring where the true value lies in your organization, you can effectively analyze risk, add value, reduce the cost of service delivery and boost the overall performance of your service teams.

    But without knowing what to measure, how to interpret the results and how to leverage your organization’s tools and data to make this possible, you’re setting yourself up for frustration and a lack of clarity in your reporting output.

    On Thursday, May 17th, join BrightTALK and Vivantio’s Senior Implementation Manager Quentin McPhee to learn what you and your senior management need to inform IT decision-making and drive sustainable service improvement, in practical terms.

  • Fostering Innovation with Lean Startup and SAFe
    Fostering Innovation with Lean Startup and SAFe Dean Leffingwell, Cofounder and Chief Methodologist, Scaled Agile, Inc. Recorded: May 17 2018 46 mins
    The marketplace is changing so quickly that we need a paradigm shift in how we enable innovation in the large enterprise. When an innovation culture is relegated exclusively to the startup, our biggest brands—those who employ most of the people and drive most of the world's economy—are at risk for their very survival. And yet, sometimes it seems that the larger and more successful the company, the more difficult it is to innovate. 
Fortunately, Lean and Agile development gives us many of the tools we need to apply that momentum to new innovations, and to do so at enterprise scale. And now, the Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) and other industry trends bring new mindsets and thinking to bear on this challenge.

    In this session, Dean Leffingwell will illustrate how seemingly disparate practices—like Agile, scaled Agile, Lean Startup, Lean UX, DevOps, and Continuous Delivery—need not be separate initiatives, but rather a continuum that helps enterprises delivery more innovative solutions at a velocity they could only imagine before. From Minimum Viable Product to Minimum Marketable Feature, to the-smallest-package-that-can-be efficiently-released-into-production, Dean will discuss how reducing batch size enables fast feedback, and is the one elemental practice that binds them all.

  • Cloud-Native Fundamentals: Accelerating Development with Continuous Integration
    Cloud-Native Fundamentals: Accelerating Development with Continuous Integration Dormain Drewitz & James Ma, Pivotal Recorded: May 17 2018 62 mins
    DevOps. Microservices. Containers. These terms have a lot of buzz for their role in cloud-native application development and operations. But, if you haven't automated your tests and builds with continuous integration (CI), none of them matter.

    Continuous integration is the automation of building and testing new code. Development teams that use CI can catch bugs early and often; resulting in code that is always production ready. Compared to manual testing, CI eliminates a lot of toil and improves code quality. At the end of the day, it's those code defects that slip into production that slow down teams and cause apps to fall over.

    The journey to continuous integration maturity has some requirements. Join Pivotal's James Ma, product manager for Concourse, and Dormain Drewitz, product marketing to learn about:

    - How Test-Driven Development feeds the CI process
    - What is different about CI in a cloud-native context
    - How to measure progress and success in adopting CI

    Dormain is a Senior Director of Product and Customer Marketing with Pivotal. She has published extensively on cloud computing topics for ten years, demystifying the changing requirements of the infrastructure software stack. She’s presented at the Gartner Application Architecture, Development, and Integration Summit; Open Source Summit; Cloud Foundry Summit, and numerous software user events.

    James Ma is a product manager at Pivotal and is based out of their office in Toronto, Canada. As a consultant for the Pivotal Labs team, James worked with Fortune 500 companies to hone their agile software development practices and adopt a user-centered approach to product development. He has worked with companies across multiple industries including: mobile e-commerce, finance, heath and hospitality. James is currently a part of the Pivotal Cloud Foundry R&D group and is the product manager for Concourse CI, the continuous "thing do-er".

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect May 25, 2018, and it impacts organizations throughout the world who sell, market to, and even collect any personal data of EU citizens. It has far reaching operational and IT impacts. Critical to GDPR compliance are security, data-access governance, and transparency in the collection and use of personal data for EU citizens, including use-based consent, self-service personal data management, and data encryption in every state (at rest, in motion, in use).

    As organizations look for efficient ways to check the compliance boxes, article by article, it is important to note that compliance is only a step towards strengthening your engagement with customers and preserving their data privacy.

    One of the key components for GDPR compliance is the need for strong authentication and identity management. Join this webinar to learn about the Secure Authentication requirements of GDPR, how to meet those requirements, and strengthen security at the same time.

    In this webinar, Yubico and Ping Identity will discuss:
    ● How Customer Identity and Access Management (Customer IAM) solutions provide key capabilities that help meet GDPR requirements ‘out of the box’
    ● Architectural best practices of Customer IAM that make compliance more cost effective and efficient

  • Iguazio Presents: Delivering In-Memory Database Performance on Intel Flash
    Iguazio Presents: Delivering In-Memory Database Performance on Intel Flash Ori Modai, VP R&D, Iguazio May 23 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Using Flash to substitute memory in databases can substantially increase density, reduce costs and improve durability. However, most databases access Flash through traditional storage and file system layers, utilizing only a fraction of Flash’s potential speed. As a result, companies keep using in-memory databases with expensive memory and limited data capacity and resiliency. Ori Modai will explain how to build real-time intelligent apps which run across large data sets and reach in-memory database performance with Intel’s NVMe Flash. He will describe the challenges posed by traditional database and storage architectures and will present a new database design which maximizes the value of flash, reaching 20x lower costs and 100x higher density. The session will include a technical deep dive followed by real-world customer use-cases in the fields of IoT edge and online AI applications.
  • Field Guide to Shareable Clinical Pathways Using BPMN, CMMN & DMN in Healthcare
    Field Guide to Shareable Clinical Pathways Using BPMN, CMMN & DMN in Healthcare Larry Johnson, VP OMG, Robert Lario, OMG Healthcare DTF, Denis Gagné, OMG Model Interchange SIG May 23 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Clinical practice guidelines are systematically developed statements based upon prevailing evidence to assist health practitioner’s in their decisioning making concerning the appropriate care to be provided for a specific clinical circumstance. A guideline is meant to offer concise instructions on how to provide healthcare services. The most important benefits of clinical practice guidelines are their potential to improve both the quality care and patient outcomes, and reduce costs. However, these guidelines are developped and communicated in prose, which often lacks the required specificity to clearly and unambiguously convey the clinical knowledge. These ambiguities can lead to the misapplication of intended therapy, causing at best a reduction in the quality of care and reduce costs, at worst causing harm.

    This presentation will demonstrate the use of three OMG standards, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), Case Management Model and Notation (CMMN) & Decision Model and Notation (DMN) to represent clinical guidelines. These methods in tandem provide a means to clearly and unambiguously describe and convey the clinical knowledge. The models can be reviewed, tested and computational verified. Further, since there are clear computation semantics for the standards, the models developed based upon these standards are potentially executable. This promotes the rapid dissemination and uptake of the guidelines in a clinical setting.

    The speakers will provide a brief overview of the three methods, supporting HL7 standards and supporting technologies necessary to make the guideline actionable in a clinical setting. A simple clinical model based upon the standards will be reviewed and finally shown executing. The presentation will show the potential of using these methods to model clinical knowledge and their potential of being directly executable.

  • 2018 Open Source Audit Findings: How Do You Stack Up?
    2018 Open Source Audit Findings: How Do You Stack Up? Tim Mackey, Sr. Technology Evangelist at Black Duck by Synopsys May 24 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Open source components are the foundation of modern applications, but ineffective management around open source can lead to serious risks and unwanted media attention when security flaws lead to data breaches. The Black Duck by Synopsys 2018 Open Source Security and Risk Analysis (OSSRA) examines the previous year’s open source and security news and analyzes trends based on the audits of more than 1,100 codebases.
    Not surprisingly, 96% of the audited codebases contained open source components, and nearly 78% of the codebases contained at least one vulnerability. As the percentage of open source in codebases continues to grow, it’s clear that open source management practices need to improve.
    In this webinar, open source expert Tim Mackey will walk through the report’s findings in depth and discuss strategies companies can use to minimize open source security risk while maximizing the benefits open source provides.
