  • Scaling Agile with SAFe and Metronome
    Scaling Agile with SAFe and Metronome Sudi Sankavaram, CIO, Radus Technology Solutions Recorded: Sep 18 2018 62 mins
    Teams have been adopting and practicing Agile for years. Scrum and Kanban are two popular approaches used by agile teams to plan and iterate their development cycles. While these approaches have transformed software development for individual teams, they lack the constructs needed to synchronize multiple teams, provide Companies with a mechanism to adapt to change, and deliver enterprise software and systems in the shortest sustainable lead time. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) leverages Agile practices and Lean product development to coordinate planning and delivery for multiple agile teams. This approach to scaling agile has led to the following benefits:

    · Increase in solution quality

    · Increase in productivity

    · Increased employee engagement

    · Faster time to market

    · Better predictability

    · Improved transparency

  • [Ep.21] Ask the Expert: Ethics in AI
    [Ep.21] Ask the Expert: Ethics in AI Alexey Malanov, Malware Expert, Kaspersky Lab Recorded: Sep 18 2018 49 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert series.

    Alexey Malanov joined Kaspersky Lab in 2004, where he began his work as a virus analyst. He has since been appointed Head of Kaspersky's Anti-Malware Team and in 2012, shifted his focus to analyzing technology trends and risks.

    The threat posed by a Strong AI (artificial intelligence where the machine's intellectual capability is functionally equal to a human's) is well-considered in many science fiction films. But the invention of a Strong AI will take many years, so we can afford not to hurry with the study of "laws of robotics."

    However, we are already facing growing concerns. The use of machine learning in various fields has shown that algorithms often make strange, discriminatory and difficult-to-understand decisions. Moreover, it has been clearly demonstrated that a person can cheat algorithms to achieve desired results.

    Alexey addresses some of the looming issues surrounding the AI algorithms that are becoming a part of our daily lives, and will increasingly affect us and our decisions.

  • MDM as an enabler for Digital Transformation
    MDM as an enabler for Digital Transformation Matt Aslett, 451 Research & Shyam Potta, Riversand Recorded: Sep 13 2018 53 mins
    Master Data Management has been around for many years, and has historically earned itself something of a bad name as a silo that is the preserve of the IT department, and – when badly applied and enforced – a bottleneck that slows innovation. However, there are fresh and new approaches to consider that mean that - when properly applied and enforced – MDM can serve as the basis for enterprises becoming more data-driven as part of digital transformation initiatives. For example, baking MDM into new enterprise applications turns one of the traditional criticisms of MDM on its head by directly linking MDM to the delivery of business value and directly involving the users most likely to benefit from it.

    Join Matt Aslett, Research Vice President, Data Platforms and Analytics at 451 Research and Shyam Potta, Vice President of Product Management at Riversand as they explore how MDM can help establish data as a foundation for digital transformation efforts.

  • Building Modern Apps at Cloud Scale with Data Services
    Building Modern Apps at Cloud Scale with Data Services Kannan Muthukkaruppan, Co-Founder and CEO of YugaByte Sep 19 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A number of modern, geo-distributed apps are being built in verticals such as retail, finance and SaaS. In an increasingly multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud world, the applications are becoming portable, but the databases are not. Enterprises are seeking to re-platform the data layer for scalability, developer friendliness and cloud-neutrality.

    The transactional database tier powering these apps has been a high-latency, hard-to-scale, master-slave RDBMS for a long time. Multi-master configurations or the use of a separate NoSQL DB (for multi-region data distribution) are common solutions. However, none of these solutions achieve the desired business outcomes of high customer satisfaction, increased data protection, and regulatory compliance.

    This talk will dive into how it is necessary to unify the best of SQL and NoSQL into one database in order to deliver the above business outcomes, and how YugaByte is helping democratize the transactional database layer by offering a single non-proprietary database that can span public and private clouds. YugaByte’s value proposition is strong for both CIOs, who can avoid cloud vendor lock-in at the database layer, and for developers, who don’t have to re-architect existing applications because of YugaByte’s built-in native compatibility to popular NoSQL and SQL interfaces.

    The Webinar is hosted by Fundoo.info along with IITAGH Board Members.

  • Data Breach: How to Identify the Early Signs
    Data Breach: How to Identify the Early Signs Shiri Margel - Machine Learning Research Manager at Imperva Sep 20 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With the escalating threat landscape and the exponential growth of data and users, it’s no longer about whether you’ll get breached; it’s about when. The ideal situation would be to detect a data breach at an early stage. The reason why early breach detection is more practical is that often times bad actors are already inside the organization, abusing legitimate permissions to access sensitive data. To quickly detect a potential data breach, we need to be able to identify “early signs” of a breach.

    Join this webinar to learn more about:

    - The challenges of detecting data breaches
    - Why early breach detection is a more practical goal
    - Introducing the data breach kill chain
    - Protecting data in your databases – the importance of defense in depth

  • Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service
    Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service Abinash Tripathy Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift Sep 20 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Reportedly, 44% of Americans would rather scrub a toilet than call customer support. And heeding that cry for help back in 2016 or so, companies across the land stepped up to the plate, taking customer service from the phone to texting and messaging with AI-powered, NLP-reliant smart chatbots that could tell jokes, offer small talk, place taco orders, and more.

    Where those messenger bots fell down, though, was in actually understanding customer intent and delivering on-point customer service. So companies were left with frustrated customers who’d still rather get a root canal than talk on the phone, but left with a broken messenger-based solution that only made the experience worse.

    The answer: Make bots "dumber," to make customer service smarter. Simpler rules-based chatbots are easy to implement, easy to use, 99-percent effective web and mobile-based messenger apps that don't try to hold conversations — they just solve customer service issues, fast.

    To learn more about why companies like Amazon are dumping the NLP bots and going all-in on a new generation of rules-based chatbots, don’t miss this VB Live event!

    You’ll learn:
    * The difference between NLP and rules-based bots and why it matters
    * Why companies like Amazon are turning away from natural language processing-driven bots to rules-based bots
    * How to deliver mobile and web-based customer service that works, using the right bots.
    * How rules-based bots make the customer journey more effective

    Speakers:
    * Abinash Tripathy, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift
    * Mitch Lee, Manager, Credit Karma and Co-Founder, Penny
    * Leslie Joseph, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
    * Rachael Brownell, Moderator, VentureBeat

    Competing on customer experience in retail is not just a passing fad – it’s here to stay. Customers expect more, want convenience, and they change quickly. Retailers have responded by introducing new channels, services, and personalized marketing promotions to capture customers’ attention and wallet share. What does it take to really take to engage with customers?  The answer is hidden in your data. According to Forbes, 80% of data is dark and untouched - meaning it’s never actually used to make improvements or changes deemed necessary by the customer.
    In this discussion you’ll learn what is possible as we review how you can create a trusted 360-degree view of your customer and put the customer truly at the center of your operations.  We’ll review how retailers of all types are delivering a customer experience that sets them apart from other brands to drive consumer loyalty.  And we’ll share the best practices and use cases retailers have adopted to get to know their customers better by unleashing the disruptive power of their data.
