  • Death to Traffic: How Smart Cities are Changing Transportation
    Death to Traffic: How Smart Cities are Changing Transportation Laura Schewel, CEO, StreetLight Data Recorded: Jun 23 2017 45 mins
    From automated vehicles to ride hailing apps, transportation as we know it is changing - and fast. But new technologies alone won't help communities build the efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation networks communities want. In fact, these innovative technologies could do just the opposite, especially if they are not deployed wisely. Cities must collect the right data and enact the right policies to ensure they do not exacerbate problems like inequity and traffic, and to hold themselves accountable to the promise of new mobility technologies.

    In this webinar, you will find out why - and how - the smartest cities of tomorrow will be those that adopt data-driven transportation strategies today. Join for Laura Schewel's presentation to gain insights into:

    • Why the status quo for transportation data collection is no longer good enough
    • The types of Massive Mobile Data that are useful for transportation and urban planning
    • Algorithmic processing techniques that are critical for making this data useful
    • Case studies from California and Virginia that demonstrate why Massive Mobile Data drives more effective transportation planning
    • A forward-looking blueprint for using Massive Mobile Data to maximize the potential benefits of new transportation technologies - and minimize negative impacts

    Laura Schewel founded StreetLight Data, a mobility analytics provider, after spending more than a decade as an advanced transportation researcher and statistician at the Rocky Mountain Institute and FERC. She has particular expertise in transportation systems, sustainability and safety, and vehicle/system modeling and analysis.

    For years Windows and Linux have been rival development and runtime environments used by two distinct development communities – .Net vs. J2EE. At least that’s what we thought. In fact, they are not rivals at all, really. Rather, they are both commonly used by nearly all enterprises to develop and execute the applications they need to run their businesses.

    Today, those applications are being modernized, containerized and redeployed across multiple clouds. Business and IT planners alike are rethinking how to develop new cloud-native applications and the infrastructure needed to deploy them to their best execution venue whether on-premises, in or across private, public or hybrid clouds. They expect the IT vendors and service providers they use to do more than just coexist. They expect partnerships dedicated to customer success – and none more so than among the two leading vendors in each community, Microsoft and Red Hat.

    In this webinar 451 Research Principal Analyst Carl Lehmann, Margaret Dawson, Global Product Marketing Manager at Red Hat
    and Jose Miguel Parrella,Sr Product Marketing Manager for Open Source at Microsoft will address:
    •How to overcome common challenges of application modernization, infrastructure management, and cloud deployment.
    •The partnership, and capabilities enabled therein, between Microsoft and Red Hat.
    •How Microsoft Azure and Red Hat ecosystems support and complement each other.

    Participants will learn how Microsoft and Red Hat build upon each other’s strengths in container-based, cloud-native application development, infrastructure deployment and operations to better serve their mutual customers through joint business practices, technology support, and ecosystem.
  • Intelligente Endpunktsicherheit: mehr als nur Vorbeugung
    Intelligente Endpunktsicherheit: mehr als nur Vorbeugung Ruediger Weyrauch, Director, Central Europe System Engineering bei FireEye Jul 5 2017 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Moderne Lösungen für die Endpunktsicherheit erfüllen zwar die Aufgaben, für die sie entwickelt wurden, bieten jedoch keine lückenlose Sicherheit.
    Umfassender Endpunktschutz erfordert vorbeugende Maßnahmen, Virenschutz, Tools zur Bedrohungserkennung und -abwehr am Endpunkt und weitere Funktionen.
    Selbst wenn ein Unternehmen dazu mehrere Punktlösungen einsetzt, werden dadurch höchstwahrscheinlich nicht alle Sicherheitslücken geschlossen.
    Manche Anbieter werben mit „Endpunktsicherheit der nächsten Generation“. Doch was genau meinen sie damit?

    Ruediger Weyrauch, Director, Central Europe System Engineering bei FireEye, erläutert in einem Webinar, worauf Sie achten sollten, damit Ihre Endpunktsicherheitslösung der nächsten Generation Ihre Endpunkte lückenlos schützt.

    Die Themen:
    - Der aktuelle Stand der Endpunktsicherheit und die damit verbundenen Herausforderungen
    - Die Vorteile von Lösungen für die Angriffserkennung und -abwehr an Endpunkten (EDR)
    - Die Vorteile von Bedrohungsdaten und ihre Rolle bei der EDR
    - Warum ein Endpunkt-Agent die folgenden Merkmale aufweisen sollte:
    •Mehrere Engines für die Bedrohungserkennung und -abwehr
    •Integrierte Prozessabläufe von der Erkennung über die Untersuchung bis hin zur Abwehr
    •Skalierbarkeit, mehrere verfügbare Formfaktoren, Unterstützung für verschiedene Betriebssysteme

  • Best Practices for Consolidated Billing & Tagging to Reduce Multi-Account Costs
    Best Practices for Consolidated Billing & Tagging to Reduce Multi-Account Costs Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager Jul 10 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Amazon Web Services (AWS) provides organizations with the option of consolidated billing, to unify data from separate accounts under one centralized payer account. Consolidated billing enables simplified operations for large organizations, while increasing the possibility of volume discounts.

    However, with consolidation comes the responsibility of allocation; organizations with multiple accounts—departments, projects, customers, etc.—are faced with the challenge of enforcing accountability. For internal teams, budget allocation and forecasting can be a struggle; for Managed Service Providers, chargebacks and invoicing can be a nightmare.

    The CloudCheckr platform offers tagging to help user manage their instances, images, and EC2 resources. Join us for a webinar on [DATE] to learn how to leverage consolidated billing and tagging to improve efficiencies and reduce cloud costs. Attendees will learn:
