  • 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.

    For LTV, engagement, and life­cycle, organic installs blow paid install campaigns out of the water—and they're a lot cheaper.

To get the most out of your entire marketing funnel, not just your app store presence, you need to step up your ASO game with these key takeaways from our latest in-depth, Godzilla-sized ASO report.

  • 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.

    Christoph Goldenstern, VP of Strategy & Service Excellence at Kepner Tregoe talks about Agile and DevOps and the trend for 'flattenning' IT organizations. IT Departments still tend to be very siloed in their approach to IT incident and problem management. This approach will not work when speed is important. DevOps is going to change this and IT departments still have work to do to get there. Service integration is important and the way of managing IT is changing. We must take an end to end process view, particularly with incident change and problem management.

  • The Science Behind Memorable Visuals
    The Science Behind Memorable Visuals Dr. Carmen Simon, Memory By Design Recorded: Jul 19 2017 64 mins
    It is intuitive to believe that visuals are more memorable than text. To a certain degree, science confirms this. Research shows that visuals impact recall because they help viewers process information faster and assist them to pay attention by being more engaging than text.

    But there is such a thing as a forgettable visual. Think of all the information you encounter in a typical week. How much of it do you remember? We tend to forget our lives almost as quickly as we live them and visuals can still escape our memories.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for a free, one-hour educational webinar with cognitive neuroscientist, Dr. Carmen Simon, to learn how to stay on people’s minds by applying science-based guidelines from the angle of how the brain processes visuals.



    You will learn how to use visual thinking skills in four areas that are prevalent in business communication: facts, processes, data, and abstracts. And, you’ll discover how to use design elements such as images, text, lines, shapes to create interesting—and memorable—content. Dr. Simon will provide you with universal visual design principles and explain how they influence viewer attention and retention.

    In just one hour, you will learn how to create and select visuals that impact memory and how to avoid those that don't. Visual thinking is important because when you use images correctly, you have the luxury of staying on your audience’s minds long-term. This helps you influence their decisions because people act in your favor based on what they remember, not on what they forget.



    About Dr. Carmen Simon

    Carmen Simon is a cognitive neuroscientist, bestselling author, and leading expert on using memory to influence decision-making. Her most recent book, Impossible to Ignore: Create Memorable Content to Influence Decisions, has won the acclaim of publications such as Inc.com, Forbes, and Fast Company, and has been selected as one of the top international books on persuasion.

    What Even the Best Firms Miss About Customer Service Ellen Daley, Vikas Nehru, Nitin Badjatia Jul 25 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Join Acorio CEO, Ellen Daley, 3CLogic's CTO, Vikas Nehru, and ServiceNow's Senior Director of Business Strategy, Nitin Badjatia, for this panel discussion about Customer Service in the real world & what most companies are getting wrong.

    While we know that customer service is a critical defining characteristic, executing effective Customer Service somehow falls flat in the real world. The challenge is that delighting customers means more than just responding quickly to requests and issues from them – it means ensuring the all functions are involved and present in helping customers. This is a paradigm shift of the last 2 decades of Customer Service which set to prioritize response over resolution.

  • Behavior-Driven Development: A Guide to Agile Practices
    Behavior-Driven Development: A Guide to Agile Practices Joshua Eastman, Test Automation Architect Jul 26 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Behavior-Driven Development with Ruby/Cucumber automation is a practical, fail-proof, read-to-use strategy or process that improves software quality and decreases costs. 

    Ambiguity and miscommunication cause the majority of critical defects and undesirable outcomes in the software development lifecycle. Behavior Driven Development (BDD) ensures that requirements are accurate. It builds a mutual understanding of what should be developed and tested through a common vocabulary.

    This webinar introduces BDD methods that promote product quality by generating business requirements in Gherkin (Given-When-Then) format. Tool agnostic, BDD emphasizes communication between business, requirements analysts, developers, and testers to ensure quality expectations are achieved. Describing requirements in the form of system behavior eliminates scope creep and guarantees proper software functionality.
