  • Welcome to the registration page for the Livestream of the 14th Annual SAS Government Leadership Forum. By registering for the Livestream, you can view all of the action happening at the live conference in Washington, DC, all from your device.

    Today more than ever, data is interwoven in our lives. We know the positive, progressive things that big data enables. We’ve also seen the dark side, marked by cybercrime, fraud, privacy breaches and more. To make better decisions faster that lead to real change, it’s crucial that everyone involved in those decisions has access to the right information. SAS® makes this possible. Join us for this exciting forum to learn about all the innovative technologies that are transforming how we run government, our businesses and the world. You’ll see firsthand how SAS makes analytics accessible to everyone today to uncover new and exciting opportunities that effect real change, faster than ever thought possible.

    Forum Highlights:

    Keynote presentation by Alec Ross, former Senior Adviser for Innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and author.
    General sessions featuring government and SAS executives on fast-evolving analytical technology and how it’s changing our world.
    Breakout sessions on best practices and stories of innovation in fraud and improper payments, cyber security and more.

  • Companies everywhere are drowning in data. They are collecting more of it, and at an accelerated pace, while at the same time depending on it more than they have before. Data centers are being constructed around the world to house all this information, but research shows that more than two-thirds of what is being kept is worthless.

    That’s where Veritas comes in.

    The demand for our information management services has never been higher, as there will be more than 44 zettabytes of data in the world by 2020. Using current approaches, IT organizations will be incapable of managing that data – they don’t have the financial or human resources. At Veritas, our business is structured on addressing this issue. We are focused on helping companies harness the power of their information – wherever it resides – by driving availability and revealing insights across heterogeneous environments.

    Join this webcast to learn more about the Veritas vision, where an information-centric approach is taken over infrastructure-centric and we explain our three core beliefs;
    • More data does not deliver more value
    • Infrastructure availability does not mean application availability
    • Not all data is created equal

    At this webcast you will:

    -Understand the trade-offs of current DR methods
    -Learn about Disaster Recovery as a Service
    -Discover the five questions you have to ask potential DRaaS solution providers
  • Chef users often ask for guidance about how to develop and manage cookbooks. Over time, different solutions have emerged, each with its own workflow. Policies, a new feature of Chef, resolve many of the reasons for these conflicting approaches.

    Policies combine the best parts of roles, environments, and client-side dependency resolvers such as Berkshelf into a single, easy-to-use workflow. By using policies, you can apply a specific set of cookbooks to a node or nodes with a single document. You can first apply the policies in development, where they can be tested, and then promote them to production safely and reliably. Chef DK now includes a number of new commands to work with policies. In all, you’ll find that policies provide a much more delightful way to manage infrastructure with Chef.

    In this webinar, Chef Software Engineer Joshua Timberman will discuss:

    * What policies are
    * Why Chef developed policies
    * How to get started with policies
  • Every company needs to be a technology company to survive in the application economy. Business and customer expectations are immediate and changing on a daily basis. This continuous and disruptive flow of new demand requires an effective approach for managing and consuming centralized resource management insights. Organizations have improved their investment review and approval process but it is more important to determine if an organization “can” take on the desired effort.

    This Webcast will focus on how resource management processes play a key role in potentially providing the insights necessary to answer the “can we” question that must be asked before allowing any new project or program for inclusion in the enterprise portfolio.

    •Do we have the resource capacity?
    •Do we have the resource capability?
    •Can we supplement our existing resources with 3rd-party resources?
    •What are the resource cost comparisons and ramifications?
  • The "Practical Guide to Cloud Computing" whitepaper was written by the CSCC to help enterprise IT and business decision makers adopt cloud computing to solve business challenges.

    - How will Open-IX and the launch of European-model exchanges impact the interconnection market?
    - What are the networking and datacenter technologies that can disrupt this market?
    - What are the advantages of Direct Connect services?
