IT organizations have hit a breaking point in siloed management tools to address one of the most critical issues today - cybersecurity hygiene. In particular, numerous point solutions targeting the endpoints drive cost, complexity, and other challenges. New investments in cloud, distributed workforces and increasing numbers of connected devices only exasperate this problem. Addressing cybersecurity hygiene means that critical actions must be made on demand versus scheduled. Teams must also have confidence that assessment results and remediation actions are complete.
Come learn about the key issues why cybersecurity hygiene fails in most organization. We’ll discuss in depth how the platform approach and speed of Tanium are poised to fix this critical problem. Eric Hanselman, 451 Chief Analyst, and Erik Kristiansen, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Tanium will discuss.
Many companies experimenting with agile development methods in their engineering and IT groups are having only mixed success.
Unless you’re implementing agile both upstream (through your portfolio) and downstream (through testing and operations,) you’re not harnessing agile’s full power through Digital Transformation. Being faster to market doesn’t help your bottom line if you deliver the wrong things, and failing to get the right things into production fast means you’re leaving money on the table.
Join this web seminar to gain insight into the benefits of a digital transformation. You’ll discover a strategic, collaborative approach to channel the power of agile and deliver more value to your customers.
Historically IT asset management (ITAM) and IT service management (ITSM) have been managed as separate entities with separate teams and unconnected objectives. In reality they are highly dependent upon each other with intersecting processes and shared data. When processes, data and tools are combined, they bring considerable benefits - reflecting that the whole is considerably more effective than the sum of the parts. Ian Aitchison, ITSM&ITAM Product Director will explore the synergies between ITAM and ITSM, and the benefits an organisation can achieve with greater visibility into the assets that make up its business services.
Live from the 2016 Hosting & Cloud Transformation Summit in Las Vegas, Katie Broderick of 451 Research will interview David Leighton, President of Women in Technology about a recent survey of 1,100 WITI members, which found that early STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) exposure is crucial and a variety of support mechanisms are needed to achieve women's goals in a predominantly male field.
Are your teams building the right things, the right way? How do you know? Are they working on projects that deliver the highest value to the company? Can your company rely on you to deliver what you promised, on time? The struggle to meet these expectations is real and organizations all over the world are trying to go agile to better connect their business strategy to the execution of work.

Database-as-a-service offers multiple potential benefits, including lower database licensing and infrastructure costs, faster time to application development, and reduced administration overheads. These benefits are most likely to be experienced by database administrators and architects, although senior decision-makers and business users also stand to gain from having on-demand access to database services, rather than waiting for databases to be configured and deployed on dedicated physical or virtual server infrastructure.
While 451 Research anticipates growing adoption of database-as-a-service (DBaaS), adoption is currently nascent compared with other cloud services, as enterprises look to make the most of their investments in on-premises database deployments, and also to identify the most appropriate workloads for transition or migration to DBaaS. This webinar explores the factors shaping those adoption trends, including the potential benefits and challenges to DBaaS adoption, the economics of the cloud as they relate to database workloads, and adoption lifecycles.
Based on research involving enterprises currently deploying database workloads in the cloud, the webinar will:
• Highlight the trends driving enterprises to move database workloads to the cloud
• Identify the challenges causing enterprises to be hesitant about migrating database workloads to the cloud
• Identify the use-cases that are prime candidates for migrating database workloads to the cloud
• Highlight the critical success factors for database migration to the cloud

Cyber threats facing a nation's critical infrastructure, mission-critical systems, or any Internet of Things (IoT) system, demand a cyber infrastructure that matches their combined enormity and complexity. Risk management solutions must be capable of understanding intricate attack patterns and assessing complex vulnerabilities to give stakeholders confidence in their system's ability to withstand malicious attacks.
Currently -- understanding, assessing and managing the risks of complex cyber and/or cyber-physical systems is a very costly and challenging task that requires the expertise of well-trained and seasoned security professionals, a scarce commodity. The traditional approach to risk assessment relies primarily on informal inputs such as documentation and personnel interviews, making this approach subjective, non-comprehensive, non-repeatable, and prone to inaccuracies about the true nature of risks and vulnerabilities involved.
OMG's C4I Task Force Request For Information (RFI) is currently open for response “Cyber Security Protection for Front Line Real-Time Systems RFI” seeking input on a) How to develop Standards to move Tool/Integration community forward to reduce costs and focus on higher quality system development b) What area of standards can be addressed to reduce cost in developing Cyber Security solutions and designs for systems and c) What can be done to integrate current standards that will allow standards based tools to better support design, development and life-cycle support to reduce costs and control costs.
Improving the efficiency of existing processes is critical for enterprises, and one of the first proof points of many big data projects. In the long-term enterprises may be looking for big data to generate revenue from new projects and applications, but proving the potential benefits by improving the efficiency of existing business processes – such as optimizing supply chains, or accelerating compliance – is a good place to start. Additionally, operating more efficiently at lower cost and with lower risk enables an organization to redirect budget towards driving growth.
Join Oracle and 451 Research for a webinar exploring how to make this operational efficiency possible through a combination of data management, statistical analysis and visualization.

Join Eric Ogren, Senior Security Analyst at 451 Research, and Omri Iluz, CEO of PerimeterX, as they discuss how your best defense against automated website attacks rests with an approach founded on analyzing the behavior of humans and bots. 451 Research has talked with organizations that have saved millions in fraudulent transactions after embracing a behavioral analysis approach to security.
Sophisticated attackers are commercially motivated, using automated attacks to inflict damage. By abusing encoded business logic, they utilize real browsers to take over accounts, perform fraudulent purchases and scrape intellectual property, without triggering traditional security mechanisms. Through advanced techniques of cloaking from the world of malware, they disguise their nefarious intentions. Signature-based bot detection and WAFs are blind to these new threats, leaving your organization’s website defenseless.
In this webinar you will learn:
•How bots have evolved from simple scripts to sophisticated Man-in-the-Browser attacks
•How to protect against advanced modern attacks utilizing real-user browsers
•How to detect malicious behavior with Web Behavior Analytics (WBA) technologies
•Real-world attacks and how organizations use behavioral analysis to prevent them
•How to future-proof your business and your infrastructure

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of systems (SoS) in every sense of the definition. The future of IoT success, including technology advancements and revenue generating potential across the business spectrum, is dependent on the application of solid Systems Engineering and Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) principals. Without MBSE, the complexity involved in the design, development, and deployment of IoT systems would consume both system and operational providers. Absent of any industry standards, IoT systems cannot be built in a vacuum and their success will only be realized through application of modern day systems engineering processes, methods, and tools. Technology advancements in consumer products will continue to evolve to facilitate connection to larger and larger IoT networks. This will be the catalyst that will drive entire infrastructures changes to: Federal, State, City, and local governments; product development companies; utility and service providers; and even to consumers and their homes in order to support the growing demand for connected products. The infrastructure and management will need to be established prior to, or in conjunction with, the smart systems that support them.
Join Andy Jordan, ProjectManagement.com as he provides a guide to building a foundation for success before your Agile transformation actually begins. In this presentation, he will address the importance of executive buy-in, setting realistic expectations and aggressive but reasonable growth plans, communication, and the ability to measure progress appropriately. By attending this session, you will learn the importance of a commitment to organizational evolution and the recognition that things can take time - Agile isn’t a silver bullet that makes all problems disappear immediately.
