    LPWAN (low power wide area network) technologies service a specific and necessary role in the growth of Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity. Not all applications need bandwidth and speed. Sometimes long distance, low energy usage, and long latency is the perfect confluence of service that an IoT application needs. Some examples are city lighting, energy grid and meter management, parking space monitoring, precision irrigation, crop yield management, and many more.

    This webcast will present different LPWAN technologies and discuss a number of questions regarding technology and value assessment, deployment, usage of such networks, and return on investment evaluations.

    - An explanation of LPWAN technology and how it works
    - When to use (and not use) LPWAN technology
    - What issues such networks solve
    - The difference between U.S. and European bands and when this will matter to a company deploying an LPWAN network
    - Key information that cities and companies need to both ask and be ready to answer when planning to deploy an LPWAN network, in order to assess the right fit and to maximize efficiencies such connectivity can bring
    - How LPWAN networks integrate with other network infrastructure in smart community deployments, for example
    - Sample use cases
    - Business models that use LPWAN networks for energy management, asset management, and others

    The Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey from Forrester Research, Inc. shows that a third of firms have been practicing agile for more than five years, and 54% have successfully scaled their Agile practices to more than half their teams.*

    People who practice agile methods often talk about "pulling quality forward." This and other agile tenets (delivering early and often, reducing batch size, inspecting and adapting, creating a collaborative culture and focusing on customer value) are designed to help organizations get valuable, high-quality features out the door, fast. But they can't happen just in engineering: agile succeeds as a mindset that's systemic throughout your organization.

    Join CA Technologies and guest speaker Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester VP and Principal Analyst in Application Development + Delivery to find out how YOU can help make your business an agile business by implementing agile both upstream (through your business portfolio) AND downstream (through testing and operations).

    If you're ready for a strategic, collaborative approach to delivering value to customers, then you won’t want to miss this webinar.

    Technology is driving business change at a breath-taking pace. Digital transformation is the watchword – established enterprises need to adapt rapidly to compete with agile and flexible digital-first disruptors as well as cater to their customers’ evolving requirements. To hold back is to court obsolescence. But saying and doing are two different matters – legacy infrastructure and applications, increasing security concerns, complexity and the need to be agile all present serious challenges that must be overcome. This is crucial if organizations are to find differentiation and competitive edge in the battle for customer loyalty.

    Cloud has become a key agent for digital transformation with cloud first strategies becoming the new norm. With many enterprises now employing multiple cloud combinations, this webinar will look at the trends and expectations for these different environments, drawing upon a new study from 451 Research commissioned by VMware and Atos.
    The discussion will include:
    • The latest state of play in digital transformation and how it is impacting cloud decisions
    • The challenges affecting established enterprises from becoming digital-first
    • The latest cloud trends and expectations helping to deliver digital transformation
    >>> Cloud first
    >>> Multiple cloud combinations
    >>> The rise of the digital private cloud
    >>> The trends in enterprise use of cloud in European countries and the US
    • How the issues of scale, security, agility and complexity can be overcome

AI is impacting just about all areas of company activity, and now enables cost-effective, efficient, and superpowered solutions that turn customer agents into heroes, helping them assist more customers, more quickly, in the channel they're most accustomed to using—messaging platforms. Or maybe not using agents at all, but bots.

    Join our interactive VB Live event where Stewart Rogers will take a deep dive into his latest VB Insight report to give you the who, what, why—and especially how—of AI-powered customer service.
