  • Towards Software-Defined Organisations
    Towards Software-Defined Organisations Dr Alexander Samarin, Enterprise & Solution Architect, Business & IT Transformation, BPM & SOA Coach Recorded: Aug 15 2017 48 mins
    The experience shows that the synergy between various business methodologies and information technologies does not happen spontaneously. It must be architected for guiding the use of methodologies, technologies and tools together.

    The presentation will discuss how several modern technologies (systems approach, enterprise architecture, digital, microservices, blockchain, explicit coordination and predictive decision-making) can be combined together to achieve an organisation which is defined by software. Thus such an organisation will systematically and agile adapt for new business challenges.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, J Metz, Cisco, Alex McDonald, NetApp, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox Recorded: Jul 6 2017 59 mins
    In this, the sixth entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into some of the nitties and the gritties of storage details that are often assumed.

    When looking at data from the lens of an application, host, or operating system, it’s easy to forget that there are several layers of abstraction underneath before the actual placement of data occurs. In this webcast we are going to scratch beyond the first layer to understand some of the basic taxonomies of these layers.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Storage APIs and POSIX
    •Block, File, and Object storage
    •Byte Addressable and Logical Block Addressing
    •Log Structures and Journaling Systems

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Join us on July 6th for this session. We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Smart Cities from the systems point of view
    Smart Cities from the systems point of view Dr Alexander Samarin, Enterprise & Solution Architect, Business & IT Transformation, BPM & SOA Coach, Recorded: Jun 16 2017 49 mins
    Smart Cities is one of the essential endeavours right now. Smart Cities use many existing and emerging information technologies, Smart Cities must change lives of many people and each Smart Cities programme and project is a daunting task. Therefore Smart Cities must be considered as a system which perfectly delivers its desired capabilities.

    This presentation will discuss how several modern techniques, such as systems approach, standardisation, reference architecture, patterns, explicit security, can be combined to enable world-wide cooperation and coordination in delivery of various Smart Cities.

  • IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality?
    IoT-Enabled Smart Mobility: Hype or Reality? Srinivasan Ramaswamy, Co-Founder & CEO, Bambucluster Recorded: Jun 14 2017 62 mins
    Urban mobility has always been about moving people from location to location through motorized personal or public transport. However, the proliferation of sensors, smartphones and intelligent high bandwidth networks are compelling towns & cities around the world to re-think urban mobility and consider technology enablers to drive towards a vision of “smart” mobility. Furthermore, the fundamental assumptions underpinning mobility are being challenged.

    The Internet Of Things (IoT) has been touted as a promising technology enabler to deliver on a vision of smart mobility. We will examine the current state of IoT ecosystems, IoT enabled smart mobility efforts across the globe and help delineate the architectural considerations and cross-industry industry collaboration that would be essential to successfully deliver on smart mobility initiatives. A simple use case around a town/city smart mobility service will be used to illustrate our approach.

In this webinar, we discuss some of the top trends in IoT including those on security, mobility and connectivity.
  • How to Securely Configure a Linux Host to Run Docker
    How to Securely Configure a Linux Host to Run Docker Kevin Lewis, Solution Architect, Twistlock Recorded: Jun 1 2017 28 mins
    Learn how to securely configure host settings and Docker Engine.

    Docker allows teams to increase the speed and scale that they can deliver software. As a result, adoption rates for docker are accelerating as more organizations are looking for ways to innovate faster.

    As you move down the path to containers, it is important to note that an out-of-the box installation of just about any Linux distribution is capable of running the Docker daemon and Docker containers, but it will leave your host exposed to many security and performance concerns if not configured properly.

    Join us for this webinar to learn how to:
    - Configure host settings to harden and protect it from unauthorized access
    - Install and configure a Docker Engine with minimal attack surface
    - Ensure that the host has the necessary integration with existing enterprise systems like SIEM and enterprise directories
  • Capitalising Your Cloud; financing options for cloud projects
    Capitalising Your Cloud; financing options for cloud projects Jez Back, Senior Manager Deloitte Consulting Recorded: May 18 2017 33 mins
    Every IT organisation is under pressure to deliver services as efficiently as possible, utilising infrastructure and services that may have a significant impact on the financial position and results of the organisation

    Historically, cloud technology has made reference to the potential benefits of transferring costs from the balance sheet (capex) to the income statement (opex). However, an unintended consequence has been that few, if any, cloud related costs could be capitalised. This may not be the desired outcome for all organisations and the capitalisation of certain types of cloud technology maybe preferred, or even required by accounting standards. This session explores this area and what key considerations can be given to the capitalisation of cloud.
  • Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There
    Everything You Wanted To Know about Storage: Getting from Here to There Chad Hintz, Cisco, Fred Zhang, Intel, John Kim, Mellanox, Alex McDonald, NetApp Recorded: May 9 2017 58 mins
    As part of the successful “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask” series, we’ve discussed numerous topics about storage devices, protocols, and networks. As we examine some of these topics further, we begin to tease out some subtle nuances; subtle, yet important nevertheless.

    In Part Sepia, we’re going to take a look at some of the terms and concepts that affect Storage Architectures as a whole. In particular, we’ll be looking at those aspects that can help or hinder storage systems inside the network:

    •Encapsulation versus Tunneling
    •IOPS vs Latency vs Jitter
    •Quality of Service (QoS)

    Each of these topics has a profound impact on storage designs and performance, but they are often misunderstood. We’re going to help you become clear on all of these very important storage concepts so that you can grok storage just a little bit more.
