  • How to Maintain Visibility in Hybrid Multi-Cloud Environments
    How to Maintain Visibility in Hybrid Multi-Cloud Environments Brad Casemore - Research Director for Datacenter Networks, IDC and Eric Thomas - Director of Cloud Solutions, ExtraHop Live 60 mins
    In the early days of aviation, flight instrumentation made it safer to fly in bad weather. Today, cloud computing is taking off and revolutionizing how applications are built and delivered. But while these technologies offer new possibilities, they also can obscure visibility and make it much more difficult for IT Operations teams to detect security threats and diagnose the root cause of performance issues.

    There is hope: the network remains the common denominator for all applications and provides a source of real-time insight across hybrid, multi-cloud environments.

    In this webinar, IDC Research Director Brad Casemore and ExtraHop’s Director of Solutions Architecture, Eric Thomas, discuss how organizations can tap into network communications and maintain visibility for security and performance.

  • 4 Steps to Risk Ranking Your Vulnerabilities
    4 Steps to Risk Ranking Your Vulnerabilities Mike Pittenger, VP Security Strategy, Black Duck Software Dec 19 2017 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Vulnerabilities are an inevitable part of software development and management. Whether it’s open source or custom code, new vulnerabilities will be discovered as a code base ages. A 2017 Black Duck analysis of code audits conducted on 1,071 applications found that 97% contained open source, but 67% of the applications had open source vulnerabilities, half of which were categorized as severe. As the number of disclosures, patches, and updates grows, security professionals must decide which items are critical and must be addressed immediately and which items can be deferred.
    Join Black Duck’s VP of Security Strategy, Mike Pittenger, for a 30-minute discussion of best practices in open source security and vulnerability management. You’ll learn:
    - Methods for determining which applications are most attractive to attackers, and which pose the greatest risk
    - Ways to assess the risk associated with a disclosed open source vulnerability
    - Strategies to minimize the impact of open source security vulnerabilities when immediate fixes can’t be made

  • Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method
    Key Considerations for Choosing a Fiber Termination Method Betsy Conroy & Brian Duval, Siemon Company Jan 9 2018 4:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    There are many considerations when it comes to choosing your fiber termination method – from the number of connections and the application being supported, to performance and overall required time to go live. While pre-terminated fiber solutions offer significant benefits in terms of factor-terminated performance and ease of deployment, they do require proper planning and predetermining of lengths, as well as longer lead times. Choosing a field termination method like fusion splicing or mechanical splice connectors comes with its own set of additional considerations, including cost, required skill set and labor efficiency. This webinar will examine the various types of fiber termination methods available today, providing pros and cons of each method and basic considerations to help you choose the fiber termination that’s right for your specific fiber deployment, including key questions to ask and termination time comparisons and analysis.

    This webinar is approved for one BICSI CEC.

  • Proactive ITSM: Panacea or Possibility?
    Proactive ITSM: Panacea or Possibility? George Spalding, Pink Elephant and Allen Houpt, Advisor, Product, CA Technologies Jan 10 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Seems like there’s a lot of talk and no action when it comes to organizations implementing “proactive ITSM”. With “agile this” and “agile that” pervading IT organizations, one would think “proactive” would be embraced as by definition it provides what’s needed before it’s needed. Well, proactive ITSM isn’t as farfetched as you might think. This webcast explores how infrastructure monitoring, process automation and technology integrations can play a huge role in enabling ITSM to become truly proactive. The result is more time for IT to focus on things that really matter to the business other than just keeping the lights on or resolving problems.

  • Designing a Distributed Application Using DDS QoS
    Designing a Distributed Application Using DDS QoS Larry Johnson, OMG Vice President; Adam Mitz, Principal Software Engineer at Object Computing, Inc. Jan 17 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    DDS Technical Overview Series - Part IV: The OMG Data Distribution Service provides a diverse set of Quality of Service policies. Strategic use of these QoS policies enables intelligent behavior in middleware and allows the application developer to focus on the domain. In this webinar, we examine one application in detail and explore how it uses DDS QoS policies to address several non-functional requirements. We'll also cover the trade-offs involved in different design choices involving DDS QoS and other DDS features. This webinar builds on the Part I and Part II webinars by examining certain QoS policies in more depth and taking a deep dive into a single application as it evolves from simple data transfer to taking full advantage of the Data-Centric Publish/Subscribe model of DDS.
