  • Modernizing SAP with scriptless testing
    Modernizing SAP with scriptless testing Thomas Koeppner, Micro Focus Recorded: Jul 19 2018 49 mins
    SAP modernization presents a combination of business challenges and technical challenges, both of which must be overcome in order to achieve a successful transformation. For best results, the business experts and the technical experts must work together on the transformation, and in particular, when testing updates to the SAP system. Scriptless testing is the most effective way to bridge the gap between those with an intimate understanding of the business processes, and those more at home with the technical details of SAP.

    This webinar will explore some of the challenges of testing SAP systems, and explain how scriptless test automation, using Micro Focus Business Process Testing (BPT), allows business users to define the processes, flows and data to be tested, while automation engineers implement the automated components that form each test’s building blocks.

    Takeaways
    • Understand the challenges of testing of critical systems such as SAP
    • Discover how scriptless testing can bring technical and business experts together to create effective automated tests
    • Understand how the components underlying scriptless test can be reused across different tests, and maintained with ease
  • 3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives & How to Solve Them
    3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives & How to Solve Them Michael Ball-Marian, Agile Expert at CA Technologies Recorded: Jul 19 2018 58 mins
    Of all the Agile practices, none is more foundational than the inspect & adapt cycle of the retrospective. Even if you struggle with every other aspect of Agile, if you consistently engage in productive retrospectives, you will get better.

    Industry surveys and studies suggest that 80% or more of Agile organizations have at least some distributed teams. Most of the traditional retrospective methods assume that all team members are co-located.

    Running effective retrospectives for distributed teams presents unique challenges, but also, potentially, some great advantages. In this webinar, Agile coach and Instant Agenda co-founder Michael Ball-Marian will discuss the three greatest challenges to running distributed Agile retrospectives and how to solve them. Michael will share a variety of tips and techniques that you can use in any retrospective, co-located or distributed. Finally, he’ll present a few ways in which a distributed retrospective can actually be better than a co-located one.

    Solving the Jevons Paradox of Performance with Lenovo and Intel Optane Tony Harvey, Sr. Product Mgr, Lenovo; Vivek Sarathy, Enterprise Architect, Intel; Ori Broit, Sr. Product Mktg Mgr, VMware Recorded: Jul 19 2018 51 mins
    Jevons paradox states that when a resource is used more efficiently, the consumption of that resource actually rises due to the lower prices and/or increased availability of the product. Nowhere in the data center is that more true than when you look at server performance. Storage has always been a bottleneck in compute systems because of the vast performance difference between the storage subsystem and CPU and memory. Together Lenovo, Intel and VMware address the bottleneck of storage performance in Hyperconverged systems with the introduction of Intel Optane technology to Lenovo vSAN ReadyNodes. Join us to hear how these new ReadyNodes from Lenovo will help you to increase the performance of your applications, increase VM density and still improve end-user response times.

  • Considerations in Data Integration, Management & Governance
    Considerations in Data Integration, Management & Governance Carl Brooks of 451 and Jeff Budge of OneNeck Recorded: Jul 18 2018 58 mins
    As today’s midmarket organizations start to tackle modernization, it cannot be done in a vacuum. There are many considerations outside of a specific application or workload that impact the data that powers a business. Data no longer lives in one location (data center) as it did in the past, as it’s now in varying clouds, and in some cases like IoT, on the edge close to end users. So it’s critical to take a holistic approach that considers data’s role and flow in and out of each application and workload.

  • Jakarta EE: What does it mean for the future of Java?
    Jakarta EE: What does it mean for the future of Java? Dr. Mark Little, Vice President Engineering, Red Hat Recorded: Jul 18 2018 34 mins
    In case you missed it, Java EE was given a new home at the Eclipse Foundation and on 26th February Jakarta EE was chosen as the new name for Java™ EE. Join this session to gain an understanding where Jakarta EE is heading and how customers and communities can help drive the future of enterprise Java.

    Java EE has been the dominant enterprise Java standard for well over a decade. However, in recent years there has been confusion and concern around its future promoting new efforts such as Eclipse MicroProfile to take just enough Java EE into the world of cloud and microservices. But all of that changed in 2017 when Oracle announced that, working with Red Hat and IBM, they were donating all of Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation and to be rebranded as Jakarta EE. What does this mean for the future of enterprise Java and traditional Java application servers?

  • A Framework to turn IoT Technology into Operational Capability for Mining
    A Framework to turn IoT Technology into Operational Capability for Mining Pieter van Schalkwyk, CEO, XMPro Recorded: Jul 17 2018 58 mins
    Digital Transformation through IoT that focuses on digital exploration, agile mining operations, connected assets, and next gen safety brings significant benefits to mining companies and mining technology suppliers alike. Mining organizations that don’t embark on IoT-enabled Digital Transformation will find it more challenging to compete in uncertain resources cycle. With more than 80% of IoT projects not progressing beyond POC stages according to Gartner, there is a disconnect between IoT technology and IoT capabilities.

    This stems from a technology-centric approach to IoT that focus on connected “things” and less on the expected business outcomes. A July 2017 McKinsey study found that 70% of their respondents identified “integrating IoT solutions into existing business workflows” as a capability gap. The IoT challenge that mining companies now face is less of a technology problem and more of a business process problem.

    This webinar presents a framework that provides the business architecture for using IoT that connects IoT technology to operational capability and business outcomes. The I2OC framework focus on aligning IoT technology with benefits such as increased asset availability, reduced downtime, reduced costs, increased efficiencies, and improve safety and governance. Pieter uses a practical mining example to present the I2OC framework.

  • What It Means to be a Container-Native SQL Database
    What It Means to be a Container-Native SQL Database Jim Curtis of 451 Research and Ariff Kassam of NuoDB Jul 24 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    No matter the industry – telco, financial services, medical devices – companies depend on applications to deliver services and/or to connect with customers. In this digital age, companies must accelerate application delivery to keep up with ever-changing customer demands and market pressures.

    Modern application architectures and infrastructure - including microservices and containers - have emerged to deliver the application agility needed to propel digital transformation projects forward. However, traditional database architectures are guilty of anchoring both data and applications, forcing organizations to contend with heavyweight processes and development models. Monolithic relational databases simply weren’t meant to scale dynamically and can’t deliver the agility businesses and applications need. NoSQL databases scale, but force existing applications to go through a redesign process that is time intensive, expensive, and risky - requiring new technology training and support.

    What is needed is a modern container-native SQL database - a flexible, distributed system that delivers the benefits of a typical SQL database (transactional consistency and ACID compliance) and is built to address the data and application demands of an agile, rapid development container environment.

    In this webinar we will:
    • Discuss the drivers for Digital Transformation initiatives
    • Review how microservices and containers provide development agility
    • Describe database options and what it means to be "container-native"
    • Provide an overview and benefits of NuoDB's container-native SQL database

  • Open source Kubernetes run-time security with Falco
    Open source Kubernetes run-time security with Falco Michael Ducy Jul 24 2018 5:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Effective security requires a layered approach. If one layer is comprised, the additional layers will (hopefully) stop an attacker from going further. Much of container security has focused on the image build process and providing providence for the artifacts in a container image, and restricting kernel level tunables in the container runtime (seccomp, SELinux, capabilities, etc). What if we can detect abnormal behavior in the application and the container runtime environment as well? In this talk, we’ll present Falco - an open source project for runtime security - and discuss how it provides application and container runtime security. We will show how Falco taps Linux system calls to provide low level insight into application behavior, and how to write Falco rules to detect abnormal behavior. Finally we will show how Falco can trigger notifications to stop abnormal behavior, notify humans, and isolate the compromised application for forensics. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the container security landscape, what problems runtime security solves, & how Falco can provide runtime security and incident response.

  • Virtualized & Accelerated Cloud Infrastructure for Big Data workloads
    Virtualized & Accelerated Cloud Infrastructure for Big Data workloads Taufik Ma, CEO, Co-founder Attala Systems; & Colin Cunningham, Data Scientist, Intel Jul 25 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Whether for private clouds, public clouds or a multi-user environment, IT operators require an infrastructure solution that can instantly spin-up data-intensive workloads and that can scale to support multiple big data workloads or tenants. Attala Systems and Intel have partnered to create a solution that delivers composable storage with local NVMe performance for big data workloads like Apache Hadoop and Spark. The performance available to direct-attached PCIe flash is welcome, but cloud total cost of ownership (TCO) is better when storage is shared to many hosts while offering the elasticity to meet dynamic tenant demands. The maturing of the NVMe over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) specification enables local NVMe performance over a network. With remote direct memory access (RDMA), NVMe actions and data can be transported over a fabric such as Ethernet. This brief illustrates how a complex big data analytics workload is well served by Attala Composable Storage with Intel® 3D NAND SSDs. This workload—which once struggled to scale to support concurrent customers when serviced by an iSCSI appliance or enterprise storage area network (SAN), is shown to match local NVMe performance and scale independently for two customers with no degradation in application runtime when using the NVMe-oF target.
  • Reviewing Spectre 6 Months Later
    Reviewing Spectre 6 Months Later Taylor Armerding, Senior Security Strategist for Synopsys Jul 25 2018 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    It’s been more than six months since the major design flaw in computer chips labeled Spectre became public. And, as predicted, it is still haunting the world of information technology. The CPU (central processing unit) is, after all, the “brain” of any computer, phone, tablet, modern TV, or other “smart” device.
    Since then, we’ve all learned a bit about terms some of us had never heard before—“speculative execution,” anyone? We’ve also been told that you can’t just patch a chip the way you can patch bugs in software. But you can create work-arounds with software patches.
    In this webinar, Taylor Armerding, senior security strategist for Synopsys Software Integrity Group, will address some of the questions that “regular”—i.e., nontechnical—users may have about Spectre:
    - What is it?
    - How does it work?
    - Why does it work?
    - Why didn’t chip makers catch a flaw of this magnitude during the design phase?
    - Why is a tool called static analysis the best way to work around Spectre without causing intolerable performance slowdowns?
  • Tackling and Eliminating Technical Debt
    Tackling and Eliminating Technical Debt Devin Bernosky, Lead Solutions Engineer Jul 25 2018 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Legacy applications, disparate platforms and processes, and outdated technology have caused organizations to amass technical debt that’s dragging down modernization initiatives. According to Forrester Research, maintaining older applications and technology typically consumes 70% or more of the technology budget – and ignoring it drags down modernization efforts.

    In this webinar, we explore ways to reduce technical debt and how you can use DNS as a shortcut to eliminating decades of technical debt in your organization.
