  • Using Storage Infrastructure as an Accelerator of DevOps Maturity Using Storage Infrastructure as an Accelerator of DevOps Maturity Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate, NetApp Recorded: Jan 19 2017 52 mins
    Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage is more capable than where we read and write data.

    In this session we’ll discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.

  • Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyperconverged Data Center Consolidation and Simplification with Hyperconverged Sushant Rao, Sr. Director Product & Solutions Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Jan 18 2017 40 mins
    Server virtualization was supposed to consolidate and simplify IT infrastructure in data centers. But, that only “sort of happened”. Companies do have fewer servers but they never hit the consolidation ratios they expected. Why? In one word, performance.

    Surveys show that 61% of companies have experienced slow applications after server virtualization with 77% pointing to I/O problems as the culprit.

    Now, with hyperconverged, companies have another opportunity to fulfill their vision of consolidating and reduce the complexity of their infrastructure. But, this will only happen if their applications get the I/O performance they need.

    Join us for this webinar where we will show you how to get industry leading I/O response times and the best price/performance so you can reduce and simplify your infrastructure.

  • Solving IoT & BYOD Challenges: The Answers are in your Network Solving IoT & BYOD Challenges: The Answers are in your Network Shaun Henderson & Peter Connolly, ExtraHop Networks Recorded: Jan 18 2017 20 mins
    Whether they are ready for it or not, IT Operations teams have the Internet of Things, including BYOD devices such as smart watches, added to their list of responsibilities. With employees bringing in potentially compromised devices, it's time for enterprise IT to understand their environment and not just tick the compliance box. On the other hand, IoT poses an opportunity for IT organizations to add significant value to the business by providing real-time operational intelligence. A new monitoring approach called wire data analytics analyzes communications on the network to extract valuable IoT security, performance, and even operations data—and requires no agents! Tune in for a technical deep-dive into the network impact of IoT, how to make the most of your data from connected devices, and how to mitigate potential security and threat risks involved.
  • LSE: Power of Productivity Report Results LSE: Power of Productivity Report Results Dr. Alexander Grous, London School of Economics & Political Science Recorded: Jan 18 2017 4 mins
    On December 8, 2016, Vodafone UK and the London School of Economics released a comprehensive report looking into the business productivity and how businesses of all sizes can unlock new growth. As a nation, we’re at a critical juncture as we strive to increase economic output and join the top productive G7 nations – and Dr Alexander Grous from the LSE has used data from over 20,000 interviews over ten years to address this problem. Alexander notes that the major block to organisations addressing the productivity puzzle is that firms either don’t even know there is a problem or don’t know how to address it constructively. In this video interview, Dr. Grous explains the three key components he has found during his research to help businesses unlock their productivity:

    1) Good management practices - Dr. Grous calls this the lever; all productivity either thrives or fails at this level
    2) The use of technology in the firm
    3) Flexible workforce

    Dr. Grous goes on to explain not only how to create a flexible workforce, but to nurture this as well, so that employees are motivated, happy, and most importantly, producing effective work. Through a solid understanding of the composition of the firm, and what ideal organisational output is, management can then begin to see what enables productivity, and how they can measure effectiveness.
  • Risks Posed By Legacy Authentication Risks Posed By Legacy Authentication Garrett Bekker of 451 Research & Martin Gontovnikas of Auth0 Recorded: Jan 18 2017 47 mins
    Username and password are not enough. So why do most companies still use them?

    There’s a Technology Basics White Paper first published in 2002 entitled “Username and Password – A Dying Security Model.” This paper documents the HIGH risk level associated with legacy authentication (using username and password) and predicted that secure access methods using Biometrics, Single Sign On (SSO), One Time Password Tokens and Multi-Factor Authentication would quickly replace the use of traditional passwords. Fast forward to a decade and a half later and the majority of companies are still using username and password authentication. We all agree that legacy authentication is not good enough, so why do most companies still use them?

    For many, the path to modern authentication seems difficult and expensive, while others worry about the impact on user experience. Join us for a webinar where we will explore this paradox and discuss practices for making secure, modern authentication fast and easy for developers and simple and frictionless for users.
  • What’s Next In Securing Identities? Key Identity & Access Management Trends What’s Next In Securing Identities? Key Identity & Access Management Trends Danna Bethlehem Recorded: Jan 18 2017 43 mins
    Over the past year, we have seen data breaches shift towards identity-based breaches, targeting personal information of either employees or consumers. The access to the information is used to craft and construct highly organized attacks on enterprises and is a growing contributor to identity theft. The problem is compounded by the convergence of personal and work place identities, ultimately creating major security challenges for companies.

    Our 2016 Authentication and Access Management survey found 90% of enterprise IT professionals are concerned that employee reuse of personal credentials for work purposes could compromise security. During the webinar, we’ll be discussing this and other trends in the strong authentication and access management market, including:

    -The status of the two-factor authentication market and what we can expect in the years to come
    -The enterprise risk issues of using social media credentials to access to corporate resources
    -The role the cloud is playing in the enterprise especially as it relates to single sign on and application management and access
    -The ongoing challenges enterprises cite as barriers to mass adoption of a mobile workforce
