  • How to Integrate Virtualized Server Environments with NVMe AFAs
    How to Integrate Virtualized Server Environments with NVMe AFAs
    Matt Hebb, Product Marketing, Data Center Systems, Western Digital Recorded: Aug 21 2019 18 mins
    As you likely know, the reason companies deployed virtualization in the beginning was to get more out of their hardware – and make their lives a little easier – it is the very same reason they are deploying it today. As a result, virtualized servers are the defacto standard in today’s data centers. While, it’s true that virtualization lowers IT infrastructure costs and allows enterprises to respond to new business needs quickly, it also creates an additional layer of infrastructure complexity. Complexity that the IT team has to manage across both the ESX and storage array layer.

    We get it – it’s a double-edged sword. Virtualization is meant to lower costs and allow quicker response time, but when the infrastructure becomes complex, the resources required to manage it could increase and offset the savings you were hoping to achieve. Join us for this webinar where we’ll address how IT can more easily manage their virtual environment.

    In this webinar, we’ll introduce you to the IntelliFlash vCenter Plug-in and share how the product offers visibility into storage datastore, offers the ability to self-provision VMs, and provides a consistent snapshot of VM-level performance metrics. In addition to better understanding the IntelliFlash vCenter Plug-in, you will learn:
    >How to simplify your VMware administrative tasks
    >How to take full advantage of All-Flash Arrays to create and deploy denser, faster VMs

  • How to reduce IoT device onboarding time to seconds and improve IoT security
    How to reduce IoT device onboarding time to seconds and improve IoT security
    Richard Kerslake, Intel and James Penney, Device Authority Recorded: Aug 14 2019 57 mins
    Want to realize faster IoT device onboarding with additional security capabilities such as credential management and data security?

    Today, a manual process exists where device ownership is transferred, activated in the field, configured on the network, and registered with the device owner in an IoT management platform. This time-intensive and costly process is fraught with security holes, as exemplified by recent large-scale attacks in which device manufacturers have shipped default credentials that were co-opted for botnet-style DNS attacks.

    Imagine you’re going to install 10,000 smart light bulbs in a factory. How much time should you schedule? Before they can start streaming data, you need to key in each device identity, coordinate network credentials with IT, and register each device with the operational technology (OT) smart building control platform. If you guessed 20 minutes per bulb, you’re about right. For 10,000 bulbs, you’d need almost two years!

    You can imagine that if you have thousands and thousands of devices in larger projects this leads to quite some costs.

    Once you’ve onboarded the devices, what next?
    Do you need help managing credentials such as PKI certificates or default passwords?
    Do you have the correct level of data security and privacy for your use case?
    Are you leveraging automation without human intervention for IoT devices out in the wild?

    With speakers from Intel and Device Authority, the discussion will include:
    • Secure by Design: An approach to address IoT security challenges
    • Ownership transfer, zero-touch onboarding and registering of devices (in seconds!)
    • Credential management
    • Data security
    • Automation

    AI for Identity Verification: Going Beyond the Buzzwords
    Parker Crockford – Director of Policy & Strategic Accounts, Onfido | Mohan Mahadevan – VP of Research, Onfido Recorded: Aug 13 2019 55 mins
    The way we verify our identities is changing. With traditional enterprises evolving and taking their operations fully digital, and newer all-digital businesses are growing exponentially, it makes sense that identity verification and KYC move online too. But in a remote setting, it’s hard for businesses to scale up their user onboarding without also increasing risk. Now, many are turning to AI-based solutions to meet that need.

    From hybrid to augmented, machine learning to deep learning, there are lots of new approaches to identity verification out there. But how can businesses tell the difference between buzzword and true black box, and what are the benefits of each?

    In this discussion, we’ll decode the various different applications of AI to the identity verification problem. We’ll also discuss how to use these new technologies to increase efficiencies at scale and provide exceptional customer experiences.

    Join this expert panel webinar to hear a dynamic panel discussion on:
    -The challenges of traditional methods of identity verification, and why enterprises are turning to AI
    -The different ways AI can be applied for more efficient identity verification
    -The benefits of a hybrid human-AI approach
    -A new identity reality: How will we be able to use our identities in future

  • Don’t rush into RPA, start with IPA
    Don’t rush into RPA, start with IPA
    Andrew Tarry, Director of Engineering, Digital Transformation, 6point6 and Chris Porter, Managing Director, Digital Transform Aug 28 2019 10:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Companies are embracing automation technology to reduce the effort for high-volume, laborious and repeatable processes. But a great deal of this automation technology is implemented in isolation, which ties you into existing systems and hampers your digital transformation journey. Instead, combining existing process management with both RPA and AI when looking to realise value-driven transformation ultimately creates a more efficient and productive outfit, solving your operational efficiency problems.

    In this interview with Andrew Tarry, Director of Engineering, we will explore why automation isn’t always the solution. There is a need for expertise in process modeling and to look at the whole organisation’s processes otherwise you’ll miss the bigger picture. RPA does put power into the business but we advise caution as it tends to end up with a proliferation of robots. Instead, this interview will explore how best to use RPA to turn legacy systems into modern processes, and how to move towards Intelligent Process Automation (IPA).

    Join the 6point6 Director of Engineering, Andrew Tarry, and Chris Porter, Managing Director, as they uncover the best approach to automating business processes.
