Service Catalog & the Cloud: How to Prepare for the Coming Storm

Cloud computing is here. Powered by mature virtualization technologies, public and private cloud initiatives are implemented at best of breed enterprises. If you're just getting started, users might be wondering why they can get cloud services in minutes, but getting similar services internally is slow and often more expensive.

Fixing this gap between the online world and "in-house" world has taken on new urgency. It is now imperative that you provide equivalent services, with equivalent speed, agility, price and performance.

Providing cloud services in a structured manner requires a proper governance framework. Turns out ITILv3 and the tenets of IT service management fit quite nicely.

First and foremost, you must provide an online catalog of available cloud services. From self-service, to automated provisioning, to dynamic billing, your service catalog should provide all the components you need to have a best-of-breed cloud computing governance and automation framework.

This webinar will also cover common pitfalls and risks, including:

- Making sure you are not too narrowly focused, ensuring you can cover not only VMs, but also include network, storage, and applications.
- Ensuring the ability to limit offerings by role, entitlement, or location
- Creating flexible user self-service forms, bundles, pricing, and SLA options
- Designing the automated delivery, including approvals, human tasks, and automated provisioning
- Integrating your service catalog with all of your other tools to provide for a true end-to-end service

  • The Keys to a Secure Hybrid Cloud Environment The Keys to a Secure Hybrid Cloud Environment Paul Fletcher, Cyber Security Evangelist, Alert Logic Recorded: May 5 2016 62 mins
    Despite increasing cloud adoption in IT departments, many organizations are still concerned with data security. Those concerns are amplified by the loss of physical control over data and the potential for mismanagement of those assets when migrating to the cloud. As a result, this is often the top barrier to cloud deployment. However, with cloud innovations growing exponentially, the new wave of security solutions is breaking down those barriers.

    In this webinar, Alert Logic cyber security evangelist, Paul Fletcher, will provide you with insight on how to get over hybrid cloud security hurdles and discuss:

    • Common misconceptions surrounding hybrid cloud security
    • Key strategies to secure a hybrid cloud environment
    • Solutions to security threats within multiple hybrid cloud environments
  • Rock the CASB Part 3: Enabling Secure BYOD w/Cloud Access Security Brokers Rock the CASB Part 3: Enabling Secure BYOD w/Cloud Access Security Brokers Rich Campagna, VP, Products Salim Hafid, Product Marketing Manager Recorded: May 5 2016 61 mins
    As organizations migrate to services like Google Apps and Office 365, there is a growing need to secure data both in the cloud and across mobile devices. With CASB, IT administrators can distinguish between managed and unmanaged mobile devices without invasive agents, yet are able to limit access to sensitive data using granular policy controls. CASBs even enable control over data once downloaded to an end-user's device. Join Bitglass and (ISC)2 on May 5, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern for the final part of our three-part webinar series, where we discuss the drawbacks of existing mobile security solutions and the ease of deploying a CASB to secure BYOD without hassles.
  • Cloud data warehouses: Why simple is better Cloud data warehouses: Why simple is better Evan Schuman, VentureBeat Recorded: May 5 2016 61 mins
    The first rule of data analytics for fast-growing companies? Measure all things. When putting in place a robust data analytics strategy to go from measurement to insight, you’ve got lots of options for tools -- from databases and data warehouse options to new “big data” tools such as Hadoop, Spark, and their related components. But tools are nothing if you don’t know how to put them to use.

    We’re going to get some real talk from practitioners in the trenches and learn how people are bringing together new big data technologies in the cloud to deliver a truly world class data analytics solution. One such practitioner is Celtra, a fast-growing provider of creative technology for data-driven digital display advertising. We’re going to sit down with the Director of Engineering, Analytics at Celtra to learn how they built a high-performance data processing pipeline using Spark + a cloud data warehouse, enabling them to process over 2 billion analytics events per day in support of dashboards, applications, and ad hoc analytics.

    In this webinar you’ll:

    * Build a simpler, faster solution to support your data analytics
    * Support diverse reporting and ad hoc analytics in one system
    * Take advantage of the cloud for flexibility, scaling, and simplicity

    Speakers:

    * Evan Schuman, Moderator, VentureBeat
    * Grega Kešpret, Director of Engineering, Analytics, Celtra
    * Jon Bock, VP of Marketing and Products, Snowflake

    Register today and learn how the top SaaS strategies can streamline your business.

  • 3 Ways to Move Beyond Storage Challenges with Intel on SimpliVity Hyperconverged 3 Ways to Move Beyond Storage Challenges with Intel on SimpliVity Hyperconverged Adam Sekora Technology Evangelist & Strategist, SimpliVity Recorded: May 5 2016 56 mins
    IDC claims that in Q3 of 2015, 4/5 of the largest storage vendors reported year-to-year declining revenue, while the hyperconvergence infrastructure market grew 116% in 2015. But not all hyperconverged solutions are created equal. Unlike first-generation converged solutions offering pre-configured “solutions” based on a reference architecture, or second-generation solutions that only combined servers, networking, and storage, SimpliVity converges ALL IT infrastructure and data services below the hypervisor onto highly efficient and scalable building-blocks with Intel processors.

    In this webcast, Intel partners will learn about SimpliVity’s three key innovations and participate in a demo of SimpliVity’s Intel-based hyperconverged infrastructure:
    1) Eliminating IT cost and complexity
    2) Solving the data problem and addressing the IO gap
    3) Increasing productivity: Global unified management through one interface
