  • Right Shift, Left Shift, No Shift: How Not to Lose Your Job in a DevOps/CD World
    Right Shift, Left Shift, No Shift: How Not to Lose Your Job in a DevOps/CD World Scott Willson - Product Marketing Director, Release Automation at CA Technologies Jul 17 2018 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    "You think you understand the situation, but what you don't understand is that the situation just changed."
    - Putnam Investments advertisement

    In today's digital economy there's a lot of communication about how companies will become obsolete and close their doors if they don't adapt and change. It turns out this is true for IT professionals as well. 

    For over two decades, IT Operations has mostly stayed the same. Professionals would rack and stack servers, physically wire networks and configure firewalls, and run a script here and there to address a service ticket. This world is dramatically changing! The world of server computing has evolved so that physically tinkering with hardware is quickly approaching obsolescence. The trend that has been growing and the technical direction that makes the most sense when describing and dealing with cloud resources is code. 

    In this webinar, we discuss the skills and thinking that will be necessary to keep your job as companies, methodologies, and best practices all shift left. We aim to help you make a smart transition. No IT professional need to lose their job if they're willing to adapt and to learn.

    SAST, IAST, DAST, MAST, *AST – There are plenty of technologies and ways to test your software, but how do we do that without slowing us down in a rapid development environment. In this session we will give practical advice on how to integrate software security testing into your CI/CD and your development process so it works. The session will review the pros and cons of each of the testing technologies, how to adapt it to rapid development, and how to make testing work as organizations are moving to A/B testing. Finally, this session will guide on how to manage the balance between risk and speed to build the right process, so that real threats will become blockers, but other issues will be handled in a parallel, slower cycle, without slowing down the main delivery.

  • A Catalog-First Strategy: Getting More Value Out of Your Data Lake
    A Catalog-First Strategy: Getting More Value Out of Your Data Lake Katy Ring, Research Director, IT Services at 451 Research & Paul Barth, CEO at Podium Data Jul 17 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    For many companies, their data lake has either dried up, or it’s spilling over. And only a small percentage of businesses can claim victory in managing, analyzing and operationalizing datasets that exist as well as new sources.

    Data-driven strategies help organizations better compete in the digital economy, giving them an advantage due to a more responsive business process. In this live discussion, the presenters will share the benefits of a “catalog-first strategy” which delivers a truly functional data marketplace or “data bazaar” as coined by 451 Research. Dr. Ring and Dr. Barth will show attendees the thinking behind the strategy, and how it represents a powerful enabler fueling the adoption of the self-service marketplace, including;
    •Data as a Service; the components of a data bazaar/data marketplace
    •From data sharing to data monetization
    •The movement to cloud
    •The Catalog-First strategy; Automated & metadata driven
    •Building a Smart Catalog (smart data ingestion – validation/profiling)

  • 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 Jul 17 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 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?

  • Best practices for Forensics and Incident Response in Containers
    Best practices for Forensics and Incident Response in Containers Knox Anderson Jul 17 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Almost 5 years, 48,000+ github stars, and tens of thousand of production deployments later we can safely say containers are a technology that is a here to stay. Theyre developer friendly, easy to operationalize, and allow organizations to provide stable and secure services to their customers.

    While there are clear best practices for what it takes to build and run containers, there isn't as much knowledge around the performing forensic analysis of incidents that occur inside your containers.

    In this webinar we'll cover:

    - How containers change incident response and forensics

    - Best practices around forensic data collection in container environments

    - Compare opensource and commercial forensics options

    - A live demo of multiple forensics investigations using Sysdig Inspect: an opensource container forensics tool

  • Best Practices in Driving DevOps Transformation
    Best Practices in Driving DevOps Transformation Paul Rechsteiner, Principal Product Manager, Incident Response Jul 17 2018 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins

But it’s not a change that happens overnight. After empowering tens of thousands of operations teams to effectively manage their services in production, we’ve distilled what we’ve learned from them into a few best practices that have been foundational to driving change and transforming to be more agile.

    In this session, we’ll go over a few topics:

  • 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 Jul 17 2018 11:00 pm UTC 60 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.
