  • Modern Portals: The Digital Transformation of Enterprise Systems & Business Apps
    Modern Portals: The Digital Transformation of Enterprise Systems & Business Apps Fouad ElNaggar, CEO and Co-Founder of Sapho Recorded: Jul 26 2017 45 mins
    Enterprise systems are failing today’s employees because they are hard to use, they trap data in silos, they have a poor user experience, and they offer limited mobile support. Therefore, it is no surprise that a Forrester Research study showed that 76% of employees believe it takes too long to complete tasks in their systems and another 62% delay completing tasks that require multiple systems. In short, this means your business has delays.

    On the flip side, consumer applications keep getting better and better – these apps are simple, enable quick task completion, are accessible from anywhere, and offer a great user experience. Why can’t enterprise systems be as easy to use as consumer apps? It turns out, they can be. Modern portals are the next generation digital workplace tools that push data and key actions to employees from their systems so they can more effectively do their jobs.

    Join this webinar to learn how easy it is to:

    •Remove system bottlenecks, reduce helpdesk calls, decrease software spending, enable smart decision-making, and streamline workflows with consumer-like business apps.
    •Build smart, event-driven micro apps that sit on top of your existing systems and push actionable insights and tasks to employees on any device, intranet, or messenger.
    •Triple the productivity of your workforce with a modern portal that surfaces personalized and relevant tasks and information from all your systems.

  • 5 Key Barriers to IT/OT Integration and How to Overcome Them
    5 Key Barriers to IT/OT Integration and How to Overcome Them Dan Ortega - VP Marketing at Blazent Recorded: Jul 21 2017 4 mins
    Operational Technology (OT) consists of hardware and software that are designed to detect or cause changes in physical processes through direct monitoring and control of devices. As companies increasingly embrace OT, they face a dilemma as to whether to keep these new systems independent or integrate them with their existing IT systems. As IT leaders evaluate the alternatives, there are 5 key barriers to IT/OT integration to consider.
    Business Process Knowledge
    Manageability & Support
    Dependency Risk – Two of the key challenges of enterprise IT environments are managing the complex web of dependencies and managing the risk of service impact when a dependent component fails or is unavailable. With traditional IT, the impact is typical to some human activity, and the user is able to mitigate impact through some type of manual activity. For OT, companies must be very careful managing the dependencies on IT components to avoid the risk of impacting physical processes when and where humans are not available to intervene and mitigate the situation.
    Management of OT Data – The data produced by OT devices can be large, diverse in content, time sensitive for consumption and geographically distributed (sometimes not even connected to the corporate network). In comparison, most IT systems have some level of tolerance for time delays, are relatively constrained in size and content and reliably connected to company networks, making them accessible to the IT staff for data management and support.
    Security – IT systems are a common target for malicious behavior by those wishing to harm the company. The integration of OT systems with IT creates additional vulnerability targets with the potential of impacting not just people and but also physical processes.

  • How to Build Modern Data Architectures Both On Premises and in the Cloud
    How to Build Modern Data Architectures Both On Premises and in the Cloud Jacque Istok, Head of Data Technical Field for Pivotal Recorded: Jul 20 2017 43 mins
    Enterprises are beginning to consider the deployment of data science and data warehouse platforms on hybrid (public cloud, private cloud, and on premises) infrastructure. This delivers the flexibility and freedom of choice to deploy your analytics anywhere you need it and to create an adaptable and agile analytics platform.

    But the market is conspiring against customer desire for innovation...

    Leading public cloud vendors are interested in pushing their new, but proprietary, analytic stacks, locking customers into subpar Analytics as a Service (AaaS) for years to come.

    In tandem, Legacy Data Warehouse vendors are trying to extend the lifecycle of their costly and aging appliances with new features of marginal value, simply imitating the same limiting models of public cloud vendors.

    New vendors are coming up with interesting ideas, but these ideas are often lacking critical features that don’t provide support for hybrid solutions, limiting the immediate value to users.

    It is 2017—you can, in fact, have your analytics cake and eat it too! Solve your short term costs and capabilities challenges, and establish a long term hybrid data strategy by running the same open source analytics platform on your infrastructure as it exists today.

    In this webinar you will learn how Pivotal can help you build a modern analytical architecture able to run on your public, private cloud, or on-premises platform of your choice, while fully leveraging proven open source technologies and supporting the needs of diverse analytical users.

    Let’s have a productive discussion about how to deploy a solid cloud analytics strategy.

  • You Can't Always Get What You Want: Manufacturing Webinar
    You Can't Always Get What You Want: Manufacturing Webinar John Brandt, CEO of the MPI group and Marcia Walker, Principal Consultant, SAS Aug 1 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A majority of manufacturers in MPI’s recent survey are now making money off the IoT – a big change from just two years ago. But challenges remain. Many decision makers can’t access essential data: They can’t always get what they want. This growing digital divide means that improvements in operations, supply chain, logistics, and customer service are being delayed for some while others are benefiting. Webinar attendees will learn how their manufacturing peers benefit from IoT data today, what solutions, such as streaming analytics, are gaining traction, and where early adopters are seeing success.
  • Precision Hunting with Artificial Intelligence
    Precision Hunting with Artificial Intelligence Josh Zelonis, Senior Analyst at Forrester, and Stephen Pieraldi, Senior Director of AI and ML at E8 Security Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    You know it already: artificial intelligence (AI) is key to making sense of big data -- it’s the only way to scale security data analytics, because the “spray and pray” shotgun approach is too expensive and too imprecise to combat advanced attacks. So how do you use the power of machine learning (ML) for precision threat hunting, to proactively stay ahead of advanced attacks, and to focus on what’s important? What are the right questions to ask as you evaluate tools for your threat hunting team?

    In this 40-minute online fireside chat, guest speaker Josh Zelonis, a Senior Analyst at Forrester, and Stephen Pieraldi, Senior Director of AI and ML at E8 Security, will discuss how behavioral analytics is transforming security operations with improved visibility across endpoints, users, and networks.

    Join to learn how this translates into better detection and faster investigation time for security incidents. And be a part of the conversation with live Q&A during the chat.

    Topics include:
    - The top challenges that are facing security teams like yours
    - How machine learning (and AI in general) help scale security response
    - Three most common use cases for threat hunters using machine learning
    - What you can do to reduce false positives in your environment

    Using Big Data & Machine Learning to Uncover Hidden Cyber Threats Ofir Barzilay, VP R&D at Cyberbit Endpoint Detection & Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst, Interarbor Solutions Aug 1 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As we’ve learned from the recent WannaCry and Petya attacks, attackers can now bypass not only antivirus systems but more advanced, next-generation security systems and put large enterprises out of service.  Today, detecting advanced attacks requires understanding their behavioral patterns and analyzing massive amounts of data in near real time. This can be achieved by using machine learning, behavioral analysis and big data security analytics.

    Join us on this webcast and learn how Cyberbit Endpoint Detection is using next generation technologies originally developed for confidential military projects, to detect threats that outsmart conventional security solutions.

    What you will learn:

    -Why most organizations are vulnerable to advanced cyberattacks even after deploying security systems
    -How behavioral detection and machine learning can surface a cyber threat that penetrated the organization - before damage was done.
    -How you can detect zero-day attacks and accelerate response and slash SOC operation cost
    -How Cyberbit uses Vertica with near real-time data ingestion and advanced data transformation from hundreds of thousands endpoints

  • How Better Measurement of User Outcomes Drives Quality
    How Better Measurement of User Outcomes Drives Quality James Urquhart, SOASTA SVP Performance Analytics Aug 3 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In the developer world, measurement of code and infrastructure has long served as the “eyes” into system quality and performance. But, as our systems become more focused on microservices and “serverless” function-centric models, the paradigm of measuring the system by its code breaks down. The solution seems to come from looking at things from the user’s perspective and measuring and testing user outcomes. Find out how this shift is changing everything from monitoring to testing to system design.

  • 5 things IP and R&D teams should never hide from each other
    5 things IP and R&D teams should never hide from each other Laura Schoppe at Fuentek | Hosted by Ruta Sudmantaite at patsnap.com Aug 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In many organisations, there is a widening gap in the communication between these departments; R&D may invent something with the intention of filing a patent only to find out later from the IP department of pre-existing IP which renders their research (and costs) effectively wasted.

    Here at PatSnap, our clients often tell us that the two teams can no longer work independently, so we thought we'd explore how to improve communication between the two divisions.

    We will be joined by Laura Schoppe an industry expert from the world of R&D and IP, and get her insight into the five most important things the two teams should never hide from each other.

    This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leader, across any division looking to improve cross team collaboration and flexibility.
