  • Destination Digital - plotting a new course for Digital Transformation w/ Cloud Destination Digital - plotting a new course for Digital Transformation w/ Cloud William Fellows (451 Research), Nick Law (Atos), & Ken Audette/Yatin Chalke (VMware) Mar 8 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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

  • Customer support: Unleash your superpowers with AI Customer support: Unleash your superpowers with AI Stewart Rogers, Director of Marketing Technology, VentureBeat Mar 9 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Flawless customer support directly translates to bottom line success. And that means reading customers' minds by offering real-time, reliable responses wherever they are—a feat that's not easily accomplished with call centers or even Live Chat.

    To help companies get it right every time, AI has stepped into the breach, cape blowing in the breeze. 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.

    In this webinar you'll:
    * Use AI to accelerate your customer support
    * Learn why chatbots are the answer to increased customer service

And a well-integrated, data-soaked AI platform can deliver that perfectly timed, exquisitely personalized customer service with the right message, right time, right place support and communication that leads to big jumps in engagement rates. Not to mention enduring loyalty.

    But while integrating AI technology into your marketing automation systems can help build profitable long-term relationships, there are security issues to tackle, privacy issues to consider, and data integration to execute flawlessly.

    Want to do it right? Join our free VB Live event to learn how master marketers join marketing insight with AI intelligence execution to significantly boost customer loyalty.

    In this webinar, you’ll:
    * Learn how deep learning can help your customers get a "human" through chat
    * Cut through the hype around chat bots and learn what really matters
    * Understand privacy issues around AI and how it may impact your org's security

  • A look at the future of software testing: HPE vision for Continuous Testing A look at the future of software testing: HPE vision for Continuous Testing Clint Sprauve, HPE Mar 29 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Many organizations struggle with the implementation of the engineering practices of DevOps, specifically with continuous testing. What if software development teams had a solution that was 100% cloud based (for distributed teams), provided real-time data analytics (for quick feedback), and supported the activities of build, edit and execution of test scripts in the cloud (nothing on the desktop). Couple that with the ability to test mobile apps on multiple devices (for scale and efficiency), the option to use containers plus existing tools (including open source), and support visual UX testing (for user experience and accessibility) while linking directly to existing continuous delivery infrastructure, and the goal of continuous testing becomes in reach.

    Join Clint Sprauve, Product Marketing Manager for Continuous Testing & Automation, to see the future of continuous testing in action and get a sneak preview of the latest software solutions for test automation. See what HPE is doing to push the envelope and take a key leadership role for the future of DevOps, quality and automation.

  • Uncover Data Security Blind Spots in your Cloud, Big Data & DevOps Environment Uncover Data Security Blind Spots in your Cloud, Big Data & DevOps Environment Ulf Mattsson, CTO of Security Solutions, Atlantic BT Apr 18 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Revisions to PCI (Payment Card Industry) DSS (Data Security Standard) point toward the realization that security must be built into the development process and Cloud with SAAS computing.

    Medical software and hardware, mobile applications, IoT etc. will require a new approach. This is frequently referred to as Rugged DevOps or SecDevOps, and the different approach called DevSecOps, embracing the speed of DevOps and continuous delivery in a secure environment. DevOps does affect security, and you can use it to your advantage. As cloud, big data and DevOps disrupt traditional approaches to security, new capabilities emerge to automate and enhance security operations.

    Join this session and learn how to automatically address these data security blind spots and how security can be built into the development process and IT platforms. We will discuss how security can be built into Rugged DevOps,SecDevOps, DevSecOps, Scrum, SAFe, DAD and use in Large-scale Development.
