    Apache Kafka® + Machine Learning for Supply Chain 
    Kai Waehner, Confluent + Graham Ganssle, Expero Recorded: Aug 23 2019 59 mins
    Automating multifaceted, complex workflows requires hybrid solutions like streaming analytics of IoT data, batch analytics like machine learning solutions, and real-time visualizations. Leaders in organizations who are responsible for global supply chain planning are responsible for working with and integrating with data from disparate sources around the world. Many of these data sources output information in real-time, which assists planners in operationalizing plans and interacting with manufacturing output. IoT sensors on manufacturing equipment and inventory control systems feed real-time processing pipelines to match actual production figures against planned schedules to calculate yield efficiency. 

    Using information from both real-time systems and batch optimization, supply chain managers are able to economize operations and automate tedious inventory and manufacturing accounting processes. Sitting on top of all these systems is a supply chain visualization tool, enabling users' visibility over the global supply chain. If you are responsible for key data integration initiatives, join for a detailed walk through of a customer's use of this system built using Confluent and Expero tools.

  • Using Complete ITAM Data to Improve Your ITSM
    Using Complete ITAM Data to Improve Your ITSM
    Jason Yeary Recorded: Aug 22 2019 30 mins
    IT asset management (ITAM) and IT service management (ITSM) are the perfect partners in crime (so to speak). An organization’s success within each discipline can impact the employee’s experience. In fact, these two areas of IT should live together, fully integrated and compliment each other.

    The service desk is the epicenter for employees’ relationships with business technology, and IT asset management holds the data for the technology they use. That means a clear view of asset data and histories can help deliver better incident management and request fulfillment. It can drive successful change, problem, and release management. It can drive automated actions that connect employees to the resources they need, and help manage the risks that you don’t need.

    In this presentation, you’ll learn:
    - How to build a self-sustaining IT asset management strategy as a main pillar to growing your ITSM strategy
    - How to improve your existing incident management process by automatically linking tickets with the underlying assets related to them through asset discovery
    - How to analyze the impact of technology changes, and improve tracking and resolutions of employee impacting issues

  • Airheads Tech Talks: SD-WAN-Health Check and Dynamic Path Selection
    Airheads Tech Talks: SD-WAN-Health Check and Dynamic Path Selection
    Rajesh P, Aruba TAC Aug 27 2019 9:00 am UTC 90 mins
    Health checks must be enabled to determine the path availability of each WAN uplink. When enabled, the gateway will send UDP or ICMP probes to an IP or FQDN of a host to determine if the path is available to accommodate traffic. The primary use case for health checks is to verify that each ISP’s network is operational and prevent branch traffic from being forwarded into a black hole.

    Aruba gateways can implement DPS policies to determine the WAN uplinks that are selected for specific users, applications, and destinations. The selected forwarding path could be a single WAN uplink or traffic could be load balanced between a group of WAN uplinks. The destination IP address of the traffic will determine if the traffic is steered towards a VPN tunnel or forwarded directly to the Internet. The DPS policy effectively selects an uplink and the gateway’s routing table or policy-based routing (PBR) rules will determine the next hop.

As the effort to transform legacy network services increases, service providers will seek the most efficient and cost-effective means in which to do so. KGPCo will be the catalyst for such an evolution.
