  • Accelerating NGS Workloads with Scientific Cloud Computing
    Accelerating NGS Workloads with Scientific Cloud Computing Scott Jeschonek, Director of Cloud Products, Avere Systems Mar 29 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has brought an influx of large-scale data and ever-growing demands for compute, resulting in a challenge for those in science informatics. To overcome these issues, laboratories need to be able to support researchers while managing data and the infrastructure needed to deliver mission-critical results and ultimately, positive patient outcomes.

    At the NGS Data Analysis and Informatics Conference in February, attendees spoke about these challenges at length. This webinar, built from content shared at the event, will review potential approaches to cost-effective data growth using cloud compute and storage. Moving genomics workloads to the cloud can provide scale and affordability, while optimizing investments in existing resources. Adding that ability to allow researchers to easily collaborate while reducing latencies to these resources is pertinent to usability.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
    - Increase computation potential
    - Optimize your physical infrastructure
    - Diagram common use cases to meet specific research goals
    - Increase flexibility by limiting data gravity

  • How to Extend SD-WAN to AWS
    How to Extend SD-WAN to AWS Ray Wong, Sr. Solutions Engineer, EMEA Apr 4 2017 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Enterprises are trending towards deploying inexpensive Internet broadband links to enable bandwidth-intensive applications, but public transport links are “best-effort”, insecure and susceptible to damaging attacks. A cloud-delivered SD-WAN delivers ubiquitous security and enterprise-grade application performance independent of the transport medium, enabling a cost-effective solution for organizations increasingly moving data center workloads to IaaS, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

    In this seminar, you learn ways to reduce operational complexity and optimize application performance to cloud data centers, including:

    - The challenges inherent in access to IaaS workloads such as AWS and Azure
    - Seamlessly including IaaS workloads in your SD-WAN architecture with only a few clicks
    - How to secure and optimize IaaS access in your SD-WAN
    - A live demonstration of cloud-delivered SD-WAN capabilities

  • The Race to Innovation in Insurance
    The Race to Innovation in Insurance Jamie Macgregor, SVP, Celent, and Kim Gray, Senior Consultant, NTT DATA Apr 4 2017 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In the last 10 years, digital and new engagement models have completely transformed the consumer and buying experience. And yet, the insurance industry continues to operate almost exactly the same; from the annual quote and buying or renewal process to the contact centre and an online experience designed 15 to 20 years ago.

    Celent and NTT DATA would like to invite you to attend a series of three one-hour online BrightTALK video events during April starting with “The Race to Innovation in Insurance.” Hosted by Jamie Macgregor, senior vice president of Celent’s Insurance practice, with a panel of guest speakers from leading insurance innovators including Aviva, Legal & General, NTT DATA and Ingenin, this video series will feature a panel discussion on what’s new and at the cutting edge, and how to truly create new markets, improve profitability for insurers and deliver value for the end customer.

    The event will focus on five technology innovations that insurers have ultimately no choice embracing. It will explore what continues to hold back insurers in their innovation ambition and what green shoots are emerging to change all of that:

    The panel will discuss topics such as:
    •Is agile proof-of-concept planning being strangled within insurance corporations?
    •How can you leverage connected environments? Does the connected environment improve customer service and/or enhance underwriting decisions?
    •What new, differentiated and transformative digital approaches/models are out there to help you improve customer experience?
    •How you should be using application/cloud deployment to significantly reducing CIO cost of ownership and responsiveness to innovation demand.
    •Are technologies beyond digital, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, able to transform routine risk appraisal and process execution?
    •What will the new transformations using blockchain and the Internet of Things do to allow automation and straight-though processing?
