  • Red Hat and Microsoft: Partnering to bring Enterprise Customers to the Cloud
    Red Hat and Microsoft: Partnering to bring Enterprise Customers to the Cloud Carl Lehmann - 451 Research Principal Analyst, Nicholas Gerasimatos - Red Hat, Jose Miguel Parrella - Microsoft Recorded: Jun 29 2017 59 mins
    Join our webinar on the capabilities enabled between Microsoft and Red Hat, and how their IT ecosystems support and complement each other.

    For years Windows and Linux have been rival development and runtime environments used by two distinct development communities – .Net vs. J2EE. At least that’s what we thought. In fact, they are not rivals at all, really. Rather, they are both commonly used by nearly all enterprises to develop and execute the applications they need to run their businesses.

    Today, those applications are being modernized, containerized and redeployed across multiple clouds. Business and IT planners alike are rethinking how to develop new cloud-native applications and the infrastructure needed to deploy them to their best execution venue whether on-premises, in or across private, public or hybrid clouds. They expect the IT vendors and service providers they use to do more than just coexist. They expect partnerships dedicated to customer success – and none more so than among the two leading vendors in each community, Microsoft and Red Hat.

    In this webinar 451 Research Principal Analyst Carl Lehmann, Nicholas Gerasimatos of Red Hat and Jose Miguel Parrella,Sr Product Marketing Manager for Open Source at Microsoft will address:
    •How to overcome common challenges of application modernization, infrastructure management, and cloud deployment.
    •The partnership, and capabilities enabled therein, between Microsoft and Red Hat.
    •How Microsoft Azure and Red Hat ecosystems support and complement each other.

    Participants will learn how Microsoft and Red Hat build upon each other’s strengths in container-based, cloud-native application development, infrastructure deployment and operations to better serve their mutual customers through joint business practices, technology support, and ecosystem.

  • Modern Portals: The Digital Transformation of Enterprise Systems & Business Apps
    Modern Portals: The Digital Transformation of Enterprise Systems & Business Apps Fouad ElNaggar, CEO and Co-Founder of Sapho Jul 26 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Enterprise systems are failing today’s employees because they are hard to use, they trap data in silos, they have a poor user experience, and they offer limited mobile support. Therefore, it is no surprise that a Forrester Research study showed that 76% of employees believe it takes too long to complete tasks in their systems and another 62% delay completing tasks that require multiple systems. In short, this means your business has delays.

    On the flip side, consumer applications keep getting better and better – these apps are simple, enable quick task completion, are accessible from anywhere, and offer a great user experience. Why can’t enterprise systems be as easy to use as consumer apps? It turns out, they can be. Modern portals are the next generation digital workplace tools that push data and key actions to employees from their systems so they can more effectively do their jobs.

    Join this webinar to learn how easy it is to:

    •Remove system bottlenecks, reduce helpdesk calls, decrease software spending, enable smart decision-making, and streamline workflows with consumer-like business apps.
    •Build smart, event-driven micro apps that sit on top of your existing systems and push actionable insights and tasks to employees on any device, intranet, or messenger.
    •Triple the productivity of your workforce with a modern portal that surfaces personalized and relevant tasks and information from all your systems.

  • How to Achieve Converged, Integrated Application & Infrastructure Monitoring
    How to Achieve Converged, Integrated Application & Infrastructure Monitoring Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO, eG Innovations Aug 8 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Troubleshooting slow application problems is one of the toughest challenges that IT organizations face in today's web-based, cloud-driven and dynamic environments. Given the distributed and inter-dependent nature of application frameworks, tracking just the application up/down status and basic CPU and memory utilization metrics is not sufficient anymore. IT administrators need visibility of the real user experience, code-level insights into transaction processing and real-time analysis of the health of the supporting infrastructure.
    Historically, IT organizations have been using different tools for monitoring the application and infrastructure tiers. Lack of integration, need for manual analysis, and expert-intensive troubleshooting have been some of the drawbacks of such a multi-tool strategy. Join us for this webinar to discover how converged application and infrastructure performance monitoring can be achieved to:

    -Provide a one-stop solution for unified and integrated performance visibility of the application and infrastructure tiers
    -Proactively detect user experience issues before online business is impacted
    -Trace business transactions and isolate the exact cause of application slowness
    -Get code-level visibility to identify inefficient application code and slow database queries
    -Automatically map application dependencies within the infrastructure to pinpoint the root cause of the problem

    Much is being written about how advances in flash, including NVMe, may impact an organization’s storage strategies. In addition, technologies such as storage Quality of Service (QoS) are promising an easier way to provision performance. Not all implementations of these technologies are the same, so how do you determine what best fits your specific applications and business needs?

    In this session, experts from Intel and Pivot3 discuss how combining NVMe flash and advanced, policy-based QoS enables organizations to confidently consolidate multiple mixed application workloads, including performance- and latency-sensitive ones, on a hyperconverged platform using SDS. We’ll discuss the impact of this new solution and what it means to applications, datacenter design and operations.
  • Five Ways to Improve Software-Defined Storage Performance
    Five Ways to Improve Software-Defined Storage Performance George Wagner, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Pivot3, Juan J. Fernandez, Storage Architect, Intel Data Center NVM Solutions Aug 15 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Consolidating multiple mixed data center application workloads on a Software-Defined Storage (SDS) platform can sometimes feel like rocket science. To confidently consolidate these workloads, including mission critical ones, you need a platform that delivers predictable and low latency performance where and when it counts.

    In this webcast, join Intel and Pivot3 as we share five ways to transform SDS into a workhorse for your traditional data center applications. We’ll discuss the impact on applications and operations, as well as ways to manage your SDS with ease. No PhD in storage performance required!
  • Stopping Ransomware at the Door (and Every Other Threat)
    Stopping Ransomware at the Door (and Every Other Threat) Derek Snyder, Security Specialist, Sophos Aug 15 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    From ransomware to rootkits, old school security cannot keep pace with today’s advanced attacks. Organizations need innovative endpoint protection that won’t impact performance while at the same time protect against these targeted threats.
    Join us for a live webcast as we discuss the latest in ransomware trends.

    Topics will include:

    · Prevent: stop ransomware before it strikes by addressing the attack methods used by APTs
    · Detect: quickly and easily detect and isolate attacks
    · Respond: laser in on critical alerts and address them with simple security intelligence
  • What is “Software-Defined” & Why Should You Care? (It’s More than Just SDS)
    What is “Software-Defined” & Why Should You Care? (It’s More than Just SDS) Eric Slack, Sr. Analyst, Evaluator Group Aug 15 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The term “Software-Defined" sounds like marketing hype but this technology is behind much of current IT systems’ advanced features and functionality - really. And, it didn’t start with software-defined storage. In this webinar Evaluator Group Sr. Analyst, Eric Slack, explains where software-defined came from, how it’s shaping IT infrastructure and what you can expect from this technology.
