  • Beyond the WAN: Networking the Enterprise Data Center to the Cloud Beyond the WAN: Networking the Enterprise Data Center to the Cloud Jim Davis, 451 Research; Josh Snowhorn, CyrusOne; Ramsey El-Fakir, Fi-Tek Recorded: Mar 23 2017 48 mins
    Enterprises are using a variety of cloud and SaaS services to remain competitive, but can lose out when their network architecture either becomes a deployment bottleneck or impedes application performance. Network interconnection has often taken a back seat to other issues in application design and deployment, but enterprises should not continue to ignore this critical component of infrastructure.

    In this webinar, we examine how today’s interconnection services can break what used to be the tight links between distance, capacity and cost. Indeed, a rethink of networking strategies in the datacenter can help unlock more agility and efficiency in digital enterprise transformation efforts.

    This session will look at issues affecting enterprise use of datacenter networking services, including:

    -Changing cloud consumption patterns by enterprises, employees, partners and customers
    -The different types of interconnection offered by multi-tenant datacenters, including datacenter interconnect, and cloud exchange
    -Real world experiences of enterprises who have leveraged interconnection to solve application performance and availability issues
    -How datacenter interconnect services can be used for disaster recovery, enhanced application performance, and access to partner and vendor ecosystems

  • Using Elastic as your Analytics Foundation Using Elastic as your Analytics Foundation CA Technologies: Bryan Whitmarsh Sr. Principal Product Manager; Himanshu Pande, Senior Director of Product Management Recorded: Mar 23 2017 59 mins
    The collection of performance, usage, and error/crash data is a critical first step in building an application or infrastructure based analytics engine. Once collected, the normalization of this data into a proficient repository, that makes the data available to be analyzed, becomes the foundation of your Analytics initiatives.
    In this interactive webcast, experts from CA Technologies will facilitate some key topics related to using the ELK stack as a basis for their Analytics engine, sharing their lessons learned and best practices. The ELK stack is a set of products (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana) provided by Elastic used to log, store, and visualize both structured and unstructured data. We’ll answer these questions, and more in this webcast:
    •Why leverage the ELK Stack as part of your analytics strategy?
    •Lessons learned in running Elasticsearch at scale (Master Nodes + Client Nodes + Hot Nodes + Warm Nodes)
    •How to best support multi-tenant SaaS solutions with ELK
    •Elasticsearch is just one component of a Lambda Architecture, what else can/should be used?
    •How you can leverage CA’s new Agile Ops analytics platform to predict performance anomalies, end alert storms and false positives and leverage machine learning for faster root cause analysis.
  • Top Reasons Why Your Antivirus Isn’t Working Anymore Top Reasons Why Your Antivirus Isn’t Working Anymore Ed Metcalf, Director of Product Marketing and Brian Robison, Senior Director of Field Technical Marketing at Cylance Recorded: Mar 23 2017 68 mins
    Are you weary from fighting malware, ransomware, and other threats that your ineffective and tired antivirus software can’t stop?

    If so, join us for our webinar, “Top Reasons Why Your Antivirus Isn’t Working Anymore” to hear why it’s time to rise up and overthrow traditional, reactive antivirus solutions in favor of proactive endpoint protection powered by artificial intelligence (AI).

    During this webinar, you will see a live demo of AI in action with CylancePROTECT®, and cover the key reasons why your current antivirus solution probably isn’t working anymore:

    - It’s Reactive: Legacy, signature-based antivirus products cannot prevent malware from executing. Cylance AI technology protects before the machine is infected.
    - It’s Ineffective: Legacy security tools perform at a 70 – 90% success rate. Cylance routinely performs with near perfect efficacy, at 99%+.
    - It’s Burdensome: On average, traditional endpoint security products use 50% to over 70% of CPU cycles during intensive scans. CylancePROTECT is outstandingly lightweight at just 1% – 3% CPU utilization.
    - It’s Costly: Signature-based antivirus solutions impact the bottom line with more layers of unproductive technology. Cylance protects with a single agent and a single cloud-based management tool, and that translates into big cost savings.

  • Réussir une gestion de configuration ITSM (CMDB) efficace Réussir une gestion de configuration ITSM (CMDB) efficace Karim Maadi Recorded: Mar 23 2017 47 mins
    La mise en place d'une gestion de configuration (CMDB) ITSM efficace est essentielle pour les organisations qui souhaitent comprendre et maitriser les différents composants de leur système informatique afin de :

    - fournir aux utilisateurs les services et logiciels dont ils ont besoin
    - automatiser et rationnaliser leur processus IT

    Cependant, d'après le Gartner :

    " D'ici 2018, 75 % des organisations IT verront leurs efforts de gestion de configuration échouer en raison du manque de standardisation "

    Le défi est donc majeur et ne consiste pas seulement à construire une base de données de gestion de configuration (CMDB) mais surtout à garantir que le référentiel des actifs IT (matériels et logiciels), les utilisateurs et les relations entre eux, soient standardisés, utilisables et constamment à jour. Les changements de configuration et d'infrastructure peuvent rapidement rendre ce référentiel erroné.
  • Self-service is the biggest lie in BI Self-service is the biggest lie in BI Glen Rabie, CEO, Yellowfin Recorded: Mar 22 2017 2 mins
    Why does BI have such low adoption rates? Simple: vendors have been selling the wrong product to the wrong audience.

    Don’t get me wrong. The modern generation of BI delivers a fantastic experience for the data analyst. The problem is that the business user has no real interest in BI, other than the end insights that help them do their job better. Data preparation, discovery and report building are not “self-service” activities, and they never will be.

  • A look at the future of software testing: HPE vision for Continuous Testing A look at the future of software testing: HPE vision for Continuous Testing Clint Sprauve, HPE Mar 29 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Many organizations struggle with the implementation of the engineering practices of DevOps, specifically with continuous testing. What if software development teams had a solution that was 100% cloud based (for distributed teams), provided real-time data analytics (for quick feedback), and supported the activities of build, edit and execution of test scripts in the cloud (nothing on the desktop). Couple that with the ability to test mobile apps on multiple devices (for scale and efficiency), the option to use containers plus existing tools (including open source), and support visual UX testing (for user experience and accessibility) while linking directly to existing continuous delivery infrastructure, and the goal of continuous testing becomes in reach.

    Join Clint Sprauve, Product Marketing Manager for Continuous Testing & Automation, to see the future of continuous testing in action and get a sneak preview of the latest software solutions for test automation. See what HPE is doing to push the envelope and take a key leadership role for the future of DevOps, quality and automation.

  • FireEye in 2017 FireEye in 2017 Kevin Taylor, EMEA VP; Grady Summers, EVP & CTO Mar 30 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Over the years the security market has evolved, as has the threat landscape. The threats have changed from being a nuisance, to ones that are specifically targeted to carry out activity such as theft of intellectual property, exposure of sensitive customer data, or holding the victim to ransom. Organisations need to keep evolving their security program to keep up.

    There are several challenges that FireEye has observed that reduce the ability to self-discover and operationalise response to breaches: lack of visibility, lack of intelligence, too many tools, too many alerts or not enough expertise.

    Join us in a live webinar and listen to Grady Summers, FireEye’s CTO and Kevin Taylor, FireEye’s VP for EMEA, as they describe how FireEye in EMEA can support organisations in overcoming all these challenges, learn about the new platforms FireEye has to offer and the intelligence required to build a next generation security program.

  • The Race to Innovation in Insurance The Race to Innovation in Insurance Jamie Macgregor, SVP, Celent, and Kim Gray, Senior Consultant, NTT DATA Apr 4 2017 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In the last 10 years, digital and new engagement models have completely transformed the consumer and buying experience. And yet, the insurance industry continues to operate almost exactly the same; from the annual quote and buying or renewal process to the contact centre and an online experience designed 15 to 20 years ago.

    Celent and NTT DATA would like to invite you to attend a series of three one-hour online BrightTALK video events during April starting with “The Race to Innovation in Insurance.” Hosted by Jamie Macgregor, senior vice president of Celent’s Insurance practice, with a panel of guest speakers from leading insurance innovators including Aviva, Legal & General, NTT DATA and Ingenin, this video series will feature a panel discussion on what’s new and at the cutting edge, and how to truly create new markets, improve profitability for insurers and deliver value for the end customer.

    The event will focus on five technology innovations that insurers have ultimately no choice embracing. It will explore what continues to hold back insurers in their innovation ambition and what green shoots are emerging to change all of that:

    The panel will discuss topics such as:
    •Is agile proof-of-concept planning being strangled within insurance corporations?
    •How can you leverage connected environments? Does the connected environment improve customer service and/or enhance underwriting decisions?
    •What new, differentiated and transformative digital approaches/models are out there to help you improve customer experience?
    •How you should be using application/cloud deployment to significantly reducing CIO cost of ownership and responsiveness to innovation demand.
    •Are technologies beyond digital, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, able to transform routine risk appraisal and process execution?
    •What will the new transformations using blockchain and the Internet of Things do to allow automation and straight-though processing?

  • Zero breach Tolerance: Earliest protection across the attack lifecycle Zero breach Tolerance: Earliest protection across the attack lifecycle Adrian Sanabria, Senior Analyst at 451 Research, & Mike Nichols, Director of Products at Endgame Apr 4 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Enterprise security teams are facing numerous challenges because of evolving threat vectors bypassing existing technology, deluge of alerts, and lack of skilled resources to stop advanced threats. Even if enterprises have a budget to bring in outside incident response and forensics teams to stop the bleeding, by then, damages and loss have already occurred.

    Security teams must change the shape of their security program to stop threats at the earliest and all stages of the attacker lifecycle. Join 451 Research Senior Analyst, Adrian Sanabria, and Director of Products at Endgame, Mike Nichols, talk about how earliest protection can change the shape and outcome of an enterprise security program.
    This talk will outline strategies for:
    •Prioritizing the alerts and events that really matter
    •Identifying parts of the investigation workflow that can be automated
    •Building a detection methodology that creates confidence and continuously improves defenses
