  • In the digital era, IT has an extraordinary opportunity to become a data-driven business partners helping the business achieve its goals of revenue generation, cost reduction, and risk mitigation. However, IT reporting and analytics have historically focused on descriptive and diagnostic work – describing what happened and why. The speed and agility of the digital revolution demands the ability to not only describe what happened in the past but to predict what might happen in the future and to make recommendations about what should be done.

    IT operations analytics offers IT organizations a path to evolve the use of machine, operational and business data for more effective, forward-looking prioritization and decision-making. And in a recent BMC sponsored survey, 79% of IT pros said they would be more effective at their job if they had access to non-IT sources of data to help them make decisions in business context.

    Join Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research, and Erin Avery, BMC Software, for a high energy, fast paced discussion on adaptive, real-time analytics that any IT operations organization can adopt to become highly prescriptive and predictive.

  • With Agile and DevOps practices in the forefront, the approach to the software development lifecycle demands a constant shift-left/right. It’s no secret that release cycles are accelerating. But how do you keep pace with the demands for faster, better, more complete testing?

    Agile and DevOps testing teams need to:
    • Collaborate to accelerate test design and maintenance
    • Share the same IDEs, tools and templates
    • Integrate with other testing processes and open technologies for continuous delivery

    To achieve this you need a solution specifically built for continuous testing and continuous integration.

This web event will deep dive on the drivers for migrating to LeanFT, and challenges that you would encounter when implementing this transformation from a people, process and technology standpoint in the context of your current organization. It will also decipher the secret sauce to take a systematic approach to drive transformation (re-engineer process, people and technology) on your current automation initiative.
  • As organizations continue to adopt Digital strategies there has been an exponential growth in data generated within organizations.. Therefore it’s critical that your organization efficiently, securely and strategically manage and govern your information assets. Ideally, your organization needs a big data platform that not only transforms your IT computing infrastructure and delivers unmatched business performance and results to implement Digital Transformation, but also supports data archiving and application retirement requirements and ensures appropriate data governance and privacy measures.
  • The emergence of Big Data has driven the need for a new data platform within the enterprise. Apache Hadoop has emerged as the core of that platform and is driving transformative outcomes across every industry.

    Attend this webcast to understand:
    •How you could leverage the unique advantages of Open Enterprise Apache Hadoop with an overview of the technology
    •How it fits within the enterprise, and gain insight into some of the key initial use cases that are driving these transformations

  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise brought together 60 business leaders to discuss about digital disruption. With a killer keynote by Geoffrey Moore, a lively panel of top executives and a thought-provoking session by IDC’s Thomas Meyer, the evening turned out to be inspiring and rich of insights.
  • Today the economics of cyber attacks favor the adversary. With the explosion of access to automated and highly effective attack techniques, now everyone has the ability to become an “advanced attacker,” a status once reserved for the most sophisticated advanced persistent actors. With this evolution, the cost of launching successful attacks has plummeted, putting more pressure on Cybersecurity professionals to manually defend against an increasing volume and sophistication of attacks.

    Organizations require new ways to “weaponize” the threat intelligence they have to prevent attacks before they can cause damage, without adding additional security resources.

    We will cover:
    •How to know your network better than an adversary.
    •The value of delivering real-time prevention for targeted attacks.
    •How to architect your defenses for prevention to save time and resources traditionally spent on remediation.
  • As stewards of financial assets and personal information belonging to their clients, the financial services industry continues to be highly targeted by cyber criminals. Sophisticated threat actors favor the endpoint as it is seen as the weakest link in the security infrastructure as opposed to the hardened network perimeter. Legacy anti-virus deployed on the endpoints have proven to be ineffective against advanced malware and zero-day exploits.

    Register today and join this informative webinar, hosted by a former network lead at a global enterprise bank and an advanced endpoint protection expert, to learn about:

    •The latest threats facing the financial services industry
    •How and why a different approach with a disruptive endpoint technology is necessary to combat advanced malware and exploits
    •The importance of protecting the entire organization end-to-end (i.e., from the endpoint up to the network perimeter)
  • Most of you have started your journey to the cloud and for those farther along, you're probably using multi or hybrid cloud platforms and likely Azure, AWS, Google Cloud Platform, VMware or OpenStack – the most common today.

    What are some of the challenges in getting a clear, holistic view across all cloud? How can you best manage usage and spend to optimize those investments? Can you show the business and finance teams exact spend today and clear forecast? Find out the tools, techniques, and capabilities you must have to do Cloud Analytics with hybrid cloud.
  • Enterprise wide area networks span tens, hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of branch offices resulting in a large hardware footprint, high power consumption, and significant cooling demands. It is no wonder that these networks can have a substantially negative impact on expenses, time and the environment.

    Join this webinar to learn how a cloud-delivered software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) is green, lowers carbon footprints and is good for the environment and Earth. Gain a better understanding of how reducing cooling and power requirements in the branch, lower carbon emissions and fewer devices is helping businesses do more for the environment while at the same time saving money.
  • As business demands faster delivery of quality applications, the design, development, testing, and production teams need to work collaboratively, smarter, and faster to remove bottlenecks in the software delivery cycle. In the world of DevOps, it is important for each team to work beyond their comfort zones to adopt new processes, new cultures, and new tools to drive the transformation across the enterprise and make an impact on the business.
    In this web event, we will examine what challenges traditional “dev/test” teams face in moving faster and how they can start to remove these challenges.
  • When a company deploys new technology, success depends on effective user education and adoption. This means employees not only need to understand how the technology works, but they need to change their behaviors. This doesn’t happen through osmosis.

    From the earliest stages of planning new technology deployments, companies need to think about lines of business workflow. How do people currently work and what role will the new technology play in this work?

    In this webinar, you will learn fundamentals of building an adoption plan, including identifying use cases, internal marketing and collecting feedback to evaluate success.

  • The pervasiveness of shadow IT is a result of the tremendous value these SaaS applications are providing to end users. Because of data exposure and threat insertion risks, users can’t run unchecked. A sledgehammer approach of simply blocking applications is not the right approach. Disrupting business critical applications while blocking risky applications will have significant business impact since users have become accustomed to using these applications to do their daily jobs. This has never been truer than with Office 365. This puts a spotlight on the existing challenge of securing SaaS applications that can no longer be ignored.

    Enable safe usage of SaaS applications, including Office 365, with complete visibly and granular enforcement across user, folder and file activity within the applications to prevent data risk and compliance violations.

    This webinar will show you how to:

    ● Satisfy compliance requirements while still maintaining the benefits of SaaS based application services.
    ● Protect corporate data from malicious and inadvertent exposure after it has left the traditional corporate perimeter.
    ● Protect against new insertion and distribution points for malware.
    ● Gain visibility and granular, context-based control of SaaS applications.

    The challenges of SaaS applications are already here whether they are enabled by IT or end users themselves. Find out how to take back control and safely enable their use.
  • In the application economy, every team needs different information in order to be effective:

    •Executives need high level portfolios / programs to be able to prioritize work to keep up with the competitive demand
    •Project Managers need project schedules, effort estimates, time tracking , and issues & risks to accurately manage project health and update status
    •Resource Managers need to balance effort estimates from support and project work to effectively see expectations of their resources
    •Developers need to break down project work, support, enhancement, and bugs to smaller segments in order to run in an agile, waterfall, or hybrid model.
