  • Multi-Cloud, Security & Encryption: The State of the Market
    Multi-Cloud, Security & Encryption: The State of the Market Rory Duncan 451 Research, Charles Goldberg Thales Recorded: Oct 12 2017 59 mins
    The rapid rise of hybrid cloud and multi-cloud infrastructure is enabling business agility and cost reduction, but at what price to infrastructure security? Concerns over increased hacking and malicious attacks, regulatory compliance, and internal auditing are driving infrastructure decision-makers to think again about protecting sensitive data in multiple cloud workloads, and what security solutions to spend their budgets on. At the same time, the lack of skilled talent, rapidly evolving cloud security offerings, and the management of legacy environments is creating additional strain on protecting data.

    In this session, Rory Duncan, Research Director with 451 Research will outline market trends and disruptive factors facing the security services market, sharing demand-side primary research and providing insight into areas of innovation.

  • The Emerging Impact of NVMe-oF and Storage Class Memory
    The Emerging Impact of NVMe-oF and Storage Class Memory Jeff Kato, Senior Analyst & Consultant, Taneja Group Oct 17 2017 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss the latest—and potentially most game-changing—technology disruptors to traditional storage architectures since flash: NVMe over fabric and Storage Class Memory.

    It was just five years ago that Flash technology transformed the traditional storage market forever. Modern flash-first arrays are now the new normal for traditional storage. Will a new shared storage access protocol called NVM express over Fabric (NVMe-oF) combined with the advent of storage class memory (SCM) be equally disruptive to traditional storage over the next five years as NAND flash technology was in the past?

    Vendors are now announcing new products and future architectures to enable them to support these new technologies. With the help of a lively panel of experts from HPE, Pivot3, and Mellonox, we will unpack this topic and explore how their innovative approaches to leveraging Storage Class Memory and NVMe-oF can radically improve storage products and solutions.

  • Why DCIM fails: Overcoming the pitfalls
    Why DCIM fails: Overcoming the pitfalls Fred Dirla, Dave Eastman, John Parker, Rhonda Ascierto Oct 25 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    When deployed successfully, managers say that DCIM software has revolutionized their operations. It lowers risk, it makes it easier to push utilization levels higher, and it enables effective capacity provisioning and planning, among other benefits.

    For others, however, the software has not achieved the ROI they expected. This is often because DCIM is an enabling technology as much as it is a management approach. To realize DCIM's full value, project leadership, operational process and cross-domain collaboration are essential. This means that the cost – and value – of a DCIM installation goes well beyond the software license; new internal operational, business procedures and workflows are required.

    This webinar explores these issues in detail and addresses the key question: "Is there any ‘easy’ button’ for DCIM to be successful?" Tune in to find out!

Cloud computing from public cloud vendors is often one place in which enterprises turn. Traditionally deployed and managed on-premises, databases are the lifeline of many enterprises. And while the cloud is appealing for a number of reasons, there are still questions on the minds of many organizations in choosing the right cloud partner to manage their database in the cloud.

    Managing Security and Risk for Digital Transformation in Financial Services Nicholle Lindner, Industry Director; Ashwin Pal, Director Security Services; Ian Selbie, Solution Director, Unisys Nov 30 2017 3:00 am UTC 75 mins
    Consumers are enjoying a rapidly expanding choice of how, when and where they bank. However, banks must now manage the extra responsibilities and risks these new channels bring.

    In APAC, the Unisys Security Index™ revealed consumers are more concerned about bankcard fraud, ID theft and cyber security than about physical threats like the threat of war/terrorism and natural disasters.

    So how can banks balance the need to digitally transform, maintain privacy and security but still provide a seamless, personalized and trustworthy customer experience?

    We will cover:
     The 10 steps banks need to take to get digital transformation right, and how to improve customer experience and trust during this journey.

     How the CISO’s office can be part of the digital transformation journey, embedding security as part of the development lifecycle from the start as a value added component and not a burden as an afterthought.

     Innovative technologies like predictive analytics and biometrics can help provide a seamless, frictionless experience for customers. But how can they be applied without seeming invasive?
