    How Data-Driven Approaches are Changing Your Data Management Strategies

    Introducing data-driven strategies into your business model alters the way your organization manages and provides information to your customers, partners and employees. Gone are the days of “waterfall” implementation strategies from relational data to applications within a data center. Now, data-driven business models require agile implementation of applications based on information from all across an organization–on-premises, cloud, and mobile–and includes information from outside corporate walls from partners, third-party vendors, and customers. Data management strategies need to be ready to meet these challenges or your new and disruptive business models will fail at the most critical time: when your customers want to access it.

    In this webinar, John L. Myers of Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Jack Norris of MapR will discuss how the new business advancements require data-rich applications that enable global, real-time data integration, microservices support, and in-place and continuous machine learning/AI and SQL capabilities.

  • Playing Through the Pain: Strategies for Working in the Real World
    Playing Through the Pain: Strategies for Working in the Real World Richard Thieme, Author and Professional Speaker Jan 18 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    After 25 years of speaking and writing about the impacts of technologies on “the human in the machine,” Richard Thieme documented the traumatic consequences for security and intelligence professionals of swimming in dark and turbulent waters that challenged our abilities, our ethos, and sometimes our very identity. Who we thought we were came up against what we had to do and the friction threw off sparks.

    This webinar goes beyond those stories to explore in particular how what dominant cultures call “minorities” manage their unique challenges. Thieme has uncharacteristically lived as “a minority” in five different ways and the dynamics and resultant strategies he had learned port seamlessly to the experience of others. There’s more to it than “playing through the pain” - there’s real gold in discovering our capacities for the resilience, power, and self-transcendence intrinsic to the human condition.

    Beginning with the “real facts” of the matter, Thieme draws on his experience to suggest ways to make this game a long distance run, not a sprint, and not lose our selves along the way.

    How Elite Organizations Collaborate with Hyper-Productive Meetings Michael Ball-Marian Jan 18 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Businesses waste millions of dollars annually on employees participating in ineffective meetings. Yet, the waste continues to fly under the radar of executive leadership teams despite losses in operating expenses and productivity.

    In this webinar we will present a framework for running highly productive, effective meetings that any organization can adopt. Specifically, we'll take a closer look at what are generally referred to as “issue clearing” meetings.

    These meetings (usually recurring) typically involve 5 to 20 people who work on a shared goal, product or project. These meetings focus on solving problems, making decisions, and aligning individuals and teams. Examples might include: executive leadership, engineering leadership team, product council, project council, weekly team meeting, portfolio council, etc.

    We will have short Q&A sessions and interactivity throughout the session.

    I grandi sistemi di dati consentono alle organizzazioni di analizzare i dati in modi precedentemente impossibili. Ma l'analisi di grandi dati da soli raramente fornisce tutta la storia. Per ottenere una visione singola dei clienti, delle vendite e dell'utilizzo, i grandi dati dovrebbero essere integrati con i dati aziendali tradizionali. E questo richiede un approccio alla piattaforma per la gestione dei dati e l'analisi aziendale.

  • Container Runtime Security with Sysdig Falco
    Container Runtime Security with Sysdig Falco Michael Ducy, Director of Community and Evangelism, Sysdig Jan 24 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    While there have been many improvements around securing containers, there is still a large gap in monitoring the behavior of containers in production and taking action on any abnormal behavior. That’s why we created Sysdig Falco, the open source behavioral activity monitor for containerized environments.

    Sysdig Falco can detect and alert on anomalous behavior at the application, file, system, and network level. In this webinar attendees get a deep dive into Falco and learn:

    -How does behavioral security differ from existing security solutions like image scanning?

    -How does Falco work?

    -What can it detect?

    -How to build and customize rules.

    -How to extend with alerting options.

    Who should attend?

    If you're managing containers in production, or just beginning our container exploration, you'll want to attend to understand the security paradigms of containers and how to secure them.
