  • Mobile is taking over as the pre-eminent way companies connect with customers.

    For sales. For service. For feedback. For support. For … everything.

    In just 8 years, smartphones have taken over the world. In just 3.5 years, smartphone media consumption has overtaken television. In just 5 years, we have been talking on our phones the same amount, but our data usage has skyrocketed more than 3400%. Mobile commerce has jumped 123% just in the first quarter of this year. It's happening. It's happening right now.

    We're taking a hard look at how mobile is the new normal. Your customers expect it. Business demands it. Mobile marketing automation is only used by 1.5% of businesses today -- and those businesses are making a killing because they understand the unique relationships we have grown to expect with our mobile devices.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how psychology meets technology with mobile marketing automation
    * Improve customer engagement and retention through marketing efforts
    * Get a running start on using the mobile revolution to drive massive engagement

  • Cyber attacks are daily news, and yet security and compliance are often not considered as a fundamental requirement when adopting hosted & cloud strategies – something that would be unheard of in a physical infrastructure environment.

    In this webinar, a security expert from Alert Logic will discuss the latest trends in cybercrime, and the motivation and methods currently used by hackers, and their impact on cloud security, including:

    •An expert profile of today’s evolved hackers and threat landscape
    •What attackers are really after, why, and how they’re getting what they want
    •How hackers monetise stolen data
    •Common methods and tools hackers use to exploit vulnerabilities
    •How to integrate security & threat intelligence capabilities into your cloud and on-premise environments

    The webinar will also cover how fully managed security services can secure the application and infrastructure stack across your infrastructure – whether dedicated, hybrid or the cloud. Managed security services such as intrusion detection, vulnerability assessment and log management coupled with deep security content, and 24x7 continuous monitoring helps Rackspace customers to reduce risk, increase application availability, and reduce the cost of running in-house teams and technologies to manage their security and compliance outcomes.
  • Traditional testing methods do not fit well for the DevOps world. They simply are not suited for the velocity or volume of changes required to achieve Continuous Delivery. With 70% of test cases written manually and almost 50% of SDLC costs taken up by testing, it is clear that more of the testing effort needs to be automated.

    Like test case design, creating test data from scratch is labor intensive, costly and error prone. It rarely leads to the creation of realistic data fitted for the specific business purpose. As a result, testing is too slow and lets too many defects slip through, so that only a fraction of desired functionality is delivered, and the customer experience goes downhill in the end.

    Join the discussion to explore:
    - The various testing related constraints to Continuous Delivery
    - How effective Test Case Design and Test Data Management methods and tools can help facilitate Agile Development and Continuous Delivery
    - Testing best practices today and what the future of testing looks like

    In this webinar, Andy Jordan discusses innovative ways to deliver intuitive, engaging products and applications in this fast moving, highly competitive environment. He will explore how organizations are selecting the right products, applications and prioritizing feature requests while staying in alignment with business strategies. You will also learn about:

    •Efficient and effective resource investment – how to get the most return from your people in the fast paced modern environment
    •The need to focus on net benefits, not project constraints
    •The need for clear, consistent top down guidance
    •The need to effectively respond to (and predict) shifting strategic needs

  • Learn how you can improve developer productivity by leveraging the powerful Sencha JetBrains Plugin. Whether you’re using IntelliJ, WebStorm, or PhpStorm, the plugin can help you develop your web applications faster with no additional software to install or project dependencies to set up. In this session you’ll learn how to:

    -Gain a consistent code completion experience across Ext JS classes, and even your custom classes while coding with Sencha frameworks inside of the JetBrains IDEs
    -Inspect code and quickly fix key issues such as references to unknown classes, mismatches between class names and directory/file names, missing controller methods, and even manage your requires on the fly
    -Leverage refactoring to keep your namespace in sync with classes/directory while moving or renaming files or classes
    -Utilize template creation capabilities to quickly create code snippets for classes, views, models, controllers, and stores
  • Watch how we do big room planning, and learn how you can do it, too.

    First, assemble the entire delivery group (dev teams, UX, architecture, product managers, business leaders) together, in the same room.

    Then share a high-level vision and business context; next, collaborate to identify risks and dependencies, and prioritize and plan work among teams and iterations; finally, commit to a shared plan.
  • In the application economy, you have to deliver software as if your business depends on it … because it does! It’s a bold statement, but true. Think of nearly every interaction a person might have today—be it for work, commerce or play. Most have a digital dimension, which relies on digital technology and platforms.

    In order to survive and grow, every company needs to become a technology company and every business needs to become a digital business. Successful transformation requires Continuous Delivery, the new business imperative that enables you to rapidly develop and deliver applications that drive superior user experiences and engage your customers and staff.

    But the traditional “software factory” or process for transforming an idea into a customer experience is throttled by a number of bottlenecks in the delivery pipeline. That means delivering innovative, high-quality applications, faster and more frequently can be a chaotic and complex process, particularly if your application delivery systems and processes were designed to only push out one or two releases a year.

    Moderator Alan Shimel, DevOps.com; and experts Chris Rowett, CA Technologies and Julie Craig, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Anbu Muppidathi, Cognizant discuss ways to overcome today’s application economy challenges with solutions designed to transform your software delivery lifecycle into a continuous delivery pipeline of digital innovation.
  • Hyperconverged technology is a term used to describe what some
    vendors are calling 'infrastructure in a box' or 'all-in-one solution.' Virtualization and storage
    administrators understand that it can make sense to couple virtualized
    storage with a virtualized server instance in some cases to create a
    virtualized infrastructure.
    However, there are several issues to consider before plunging into a hyperconverged deployment.

    This session will discuss the applications benefiting from a hyper converged solution and how it fits into your data center.
  • Wie Sie sicher wissen, untersagt das deutsche Bundesdatenschutzgesetz in seiner Zweckbindungsklausel das Verwenden von sensitiven Echtdaten in Test-, Entwicklungs- und Schulungssystemen. Dennoch sehen wir, dass eine Vielzahl von Unternehmen dieses Risiko immer noch eingeht und sich davor scheut, die nötigen Anpassungen durchzuführen.

    Die deutsche Versicherungswirtschaft begegnet diesem Thema mit dem Code of Conduct über den GDV als Vorreiter nun offensiv.

    Der GDV (Gesamtverband der deutschen Versicherer) ist der erste Verband in Deutschland, der für eine freiwillige Selbstverpflichtung zum Schutz von personenbezogenen Versichertendaten die Zustimmung der Datenschutzbehörden erhalten hat.

    Sämtliche deutschen Versicherungsunternehmen die dem Code of Conduct (CoC) bis Ende 2014 beigetreten sind haben sich damit verpflichtet, dem Datenschutzkodex des GDV innerhalb von 3 Jahren gerecht zu werden.

    Mit den neuen Verhaltensregeln wird transparent, was von der Antragstellung bis zur Schadenregulierung mit personenbezogenen Daten geschieht.

    Lernen Sie wie Informatica die Anforderungen aus dem CoC (Anonymisierung für sensitive Daten in Produktion sowie Test & Entwicklung) umsetzt und gleichzeitig Ihr Testdatenmanagement modernisieren kann.

    Da gemäß BSDSG als auch neuester EU-Novelle Datenschutz ein branchenübergreifendes Thema ist, sind alle Interessenten herzlich zu diesem Webinar eingeladen, die direkt (z.B. Datenschützer) oder indirekt (z.B. Test-Manager, Enterprise Architekten) mit dem Thema konfrontiert werden.

  • IT spend has become one of the largest budget line items in companies today. IT organizations worldwide spent over $4 trillion dollars in 2013 alone. Despite the growth in IT spend, many IT organizations do not have the capability to clearly and easily articulate where that spend is going, how it correlates to the services they are delivering or what value the business is realizing from the services.

    In order to stay competitive, businesses are seeking ways to optimize and align future IT investment decisions with the strategic direction of the company. By making all of the costs of running IT transparent, IT can change the way business units consume IT resources, drive down total enterprise IT costs and focus on IT spending that delivers real business value.

    Join Jerry Wertelecky as he discusses:

    • Facilitate collaboration between IT and Finance to increase visibility into the costs, utilization and operations of all IT Services

    • Leverage a deep understanding of what drives IT costs and performance to improve scenario planning capabilities and make better IT decisions
