  • How Elite Organizations Collaborate with Hyper-Productive Meetings
    How Elite Organizations Collaborate with Hyper-Productive Meetings Michael Ball-Marian Recorded: Jan 18 2018 59 mins
    Businesses waste millions of dollars annually on employees participating in ineffective meetings. Yet, the waste continues to fly under the radar of executive leadership teams despite losses in operating expenses and productivity.

    In this webinar we will present a framework for running highly productive, effective meetings that any organization can adopt. Specifically, we'll take a closer look at what are generally referred to as “issue clearing” meetings.

    These meetings (usually recurring) typically involve 5 to 20 people who work on a shared goal, product or project. These meetings focus on solving problems, making decisions, and aligning individuals and teams. Examples might include: executive leadership, engineering leadership team, product council, project council, weekly team meeting, portfolio council, etc.

    We will have short Q&A sessions and interactivity throughout the session.

    Shift Left: How testing early and often is best for the business and customer Nancy Gohring 451 Research and Steve Feloney CA Technologies Recorded: Dec 12 2017 50 mins
    Organizations in most any industry are feeling increasing pressure to move fast. But at what cost? Some have learned the hard way that skipping crucial processes, like testing, damages performance and impacts customer sentiments on your brand. In this case, the fast time to market becomes meaningless.

    Smart businesses are adapting to a shift left strategy. These teams are learning how to incorporate testing early and often in the release cycle, supporting business requirements to move fast while ensuring high-performing products and quality. But getting there isn’t easy. In this webinar, we’ll cover:

    •Testing tools: tool choice is important. Not all tools have been designed to support this new paradigm.
    •Integrations: to be effective, testing tools must integrate easily with the tools and processes modern teams use, including CI/CD and APM products. Further, these tools must be very easy to use, specifically for developers.
    •Organizational models: shifting left requires changes to traditional organizations and culture. We’ll share insight into the successful models we’ve seen.

    Transforming the Student Experience: A One-Stop Solution for Digital Natives Adam Mason, Sheila Pickett, Meghan Lockwood Recorded: Nov 30 2017 40 mins
    The mandate to drive digital transformation has finally hit the realm of Higher Education, specifically targeting the “Ed Tech” universe. From the application process up until graduation, colleges and universities are dealing with a student body who have needs and demands that are very different from those of students who graduated even a decade ago. Think about it: the freshmen walking onto campus today have all grown up as consumers within an online community. They don’t just appreciate an intuitive, well-organized web experience, they expect one.

    ServiceNow aids schools in two ways: the platform makes it smarter, faster, and easier for students to navigate their student portals, and for universities to integrate and consolidate all of their disparate systems. With its intuitive interface, ServiceNow helps higher ed institutions to step away from the dark ages of spreadsheets and un-trackable requests, and instead provide their students and alums with an organized and pleasant web experience.

  • Secure Information Sharing across Agency Boundaries
    Secure Information Sharing across Agency Boundaries Chris Tonjes, CIO, DC Office of the Attorney General & Sonny Hashmi, Managing Director, Global Public Sector, Box Jan 25 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Government agencies must collaborate to solve complex problems in healthcare, Human Services, Law Enforcement and Emergency Management. However, many of the legacy systems agencies use to coordinate and manage information are not easily extensible outside the agency boundary, requiring either expensive customized portal based solutions, or insecure data exchange via emails and DVDs.

    Box allows agencies to securely work together across agency boundaries, while maintaining the security and compliance that government agencies need. leveraging box, agencies can quickly form inter-agency working groups, collaborate on mission sensitive data, and ensure that all stakeholders remain informed of programs and initiatives, without sacrificing security.

    Join us on this webinar to learn how government agencies are designing modern solutions using cloud technologies to securely share sensitive information between agencies and non-governmental stakeholders. Whether working with citizens and private sector health providers in health and human services, or coordinating across jurisdictions in law enforcement, or collaborating across Federal, State and Local government boundaries in emergency management, agencies are implementing new ways to share relevant information in real time, without compromising the security and privacy of sensitive data. Hear from government CIOs on how they have approached these challenges.
  • Using Object Storage to Solve Unstructured Data Problems
    Using Object Storage to Solve Unstructured Data Problems Steven Hill 451 Research, Stefaan Vervaet WD, Molly Presley Quantum Jan 25 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Business is experiencing an increased dependence on unstructured data, such as complex business documents, work products and large media files. This presents a new and growing set of challenges for IT when it comes to preserving, protecting, monitoring and managing unstructured data at scale; and it’s a problem that affects enterprises and service providers alike. We believe that object storage’s massive scalability and rich metadata capabilities supports the collection of the extended information about the data itself—in the form of metadata—to provide customizable and specific reference points for identifying the contents and automating the management of unstructured data at storage-level throughout its entire lifecycle. To document these challenges, 451 Research – in cooperation with Western Digital’s HGST division – has developed and fielded an annual survey that reaches out to a vetted group of 100 enterprise and 100 service provider customers to evaluate the current nature of the unstructured data problem. This program looks to better establish market perceptions about modern object storage, explore current use cases, and outline customer expectations based on responses to our 2017 poll.

    Join 451 Research Co-Founder & Research VP John Abbott for a live webinar on February 12 as he reviews the trends expected to shape the infrastructure landscape in 2018, and the level of impact those trends will have. Come armed with questions, as there will be a live Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
  • Meet Box GxP Validation: Regulated and unregulated content now in the same cloud
    Meet Box GxP Validation: Regulated and unregulated content now in the same cloud Riju Khetarpal, Life Sciences Managing Director, Box & Manu Vohra, Life Sciences Vice President, Content Management, USDM Feb 14 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    To quickly bring life-saving therapies to market, the drug development process relies on secure collaboration across the extended enterprise. However, organizations find that today's legacy content management systems lead to silos between their regulated and unregulated content.

    With Box GxP Validation, pharma and life sciences companies can now validate Box so they can collaborate on, manage and distribute regulated clinical, lab and manufacturing content in Box. That means all of your content is standardized on a single content platform that meets regulatory and compliance standards, so you can eliminate inefficient silos, enable seamless collaboration and accelerate the validation process.

    Join our upcoming webinar to learn how to:
    - Leverage Box for your GxP content — such as collaborating with CROs — and consolidate expensive GxP-specific systems
    - Cut validation time in half and save up to 75% in validation costs with always-on testing
    - Meet CFR Part 11 requirements by integrating Box with e-signature providers, such as DocuSign

    Hear about this new game-changing model for maintaining GxP compliance in the cloud with Riju Khetarpal, Life Sciences Managing Director at Box, and Manu Vohra, VP of Content Management at USDM Life Sciences.

  • Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge
    Where’s My Data? Managing the Data Residency Challenge Claude Baudoin, owner, cébé IT & Knowledge Management Feb 27 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Introducing the OMG’s Data Residency Maturity Model

    With the rise of managed IT services and cloud computing, sensitive data is regularly moved across countries and jurisdictions, which can be in direct conflict with various international, national or local regulations dictating where certain types of data can be stored (e.g., the European Union’ General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR). Data residency is also a consideration of data owners responsible for protecting and securing data from unintended access.

    The Object Management Group® (OMG®), a technology standards consortium, launched a working group in 2015 to address the challenges of data residency and define a standards roadmap to help stakeholders manage the location of their data and metadata.

    Given the complexity of the issue, a stepwise improvement plan is necessary. This webinar will introduce a new Data Residency Maturity Model (DRMM) proposed in December 2017. Similar to the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) invented in 1990 at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), the DRMM contains five maturity levels aimed at helping an organization improve their practices and governance of data residency. The OMG seeks feedback on the DRMM and calls on all interested parties to contribute to this work.

  • The Coming Enterprise Service Desk – How Information Technology Can Lead The Way
    The Coming Enterprise Service Desk – How Information Technology Can Lead The Way Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet May 8 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    ITIL, and more broadly, IT Service Management, is now a 31-year-old discipline. It was originally established in the UK under the government of Margaret Thatcher in 1985. For those working in IT Service and Support, the implications of this are profound. First, it means that IT support professionals have an enormous body of knowledge to draw upon for industry best practices. Secondly, it almost always means that other corporate services, such as HR, facilities, safety, etc., are far less mature than IT Service and Support. Savvy IT managers recognize this opportunity, and are increasingly taking up the challenge of providing enterprise leadership in corporate services.

    I want to challenge leaders from both IT and non-IT services to give serious thought to the role of enterprise services in your organization. This is the kind of opportunity that doesn’t come along very often. It has the potential to transform the delivery of all services in the enterprise, while saving money and improving the quality of service that your customers receive. Moreover, it can be a game changer for your career. Enterprises worldwide are in desperate need of leadership on this issue. So if you have been looking for that next big career opportunity, it may be right in front of you!
