    The evolution of the virtualisation marketplace
    BT's network experts: Adrian Comley, Anne-Gaelle Santos, Brian Lappin, and David Llewelyn-Jones Recorded: Aug 9 2019 4 mins
    In the new age of technology, customers increasingly need to deliver services on a platform defined by flexibility and agility. The future promises to enable this with a mass transformation to more attractive, hardware-free, network-solutions.

    We’ve already witnessed the arrival of Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) — moving away from the necessity for box connectivity and towards an array of virtualised services across a software-defined network. But when the global NFV/SDN market is set to grow at a CAGR of 25 per cent between 2018 and 2023 , how can we expect the network evolution to continue into the years ahead?

    With the emergence of IoT, the growth of 5G capabilities and the unbounded possibilities of edge computing, the future of the virtualisation marketplace becomes a huge and exciting unknown. How can businesses cater for such disruptive and expansive transformation?

    Watch our video to discover how our experts view the future of virtualisation.

    - Oppimisen tukeminen yksilö-, tiimi- ja organisaatiotasolla

    - Oman oppimisen suunnittelu ja käytäntöön viennin varmistaminen
  • The Five Barriers To Automating Manual Business Processes
    The Five Barriers To Automating Manual Business Processes
    Stowe Boyd, GigaOm Research Analyst & Terry Simpson, Nintex Technical Evangelist Recorded: Aug 8 2019 56 mins
    Despite the growing awareness of the productivity gains that are possible from automating everyday business processes, the great majority — as much as 68% in recent research — are still manual.
     
    In this webinar from GigaOm Research, Gigaom analyst Stowe Boyd digs into the barriers that are holding back adoption of process automation in a give-and-take conversation with Terry Simpson, Technical Evangelist at Nintex.
     
    The pair will address the preconception that workflow requires programming, and is therefore costly and time-consuming, and inaccessible to non-techies. Another concern is that integration with existing tools is difficult, and adapting to the specific work patterns in your workplace may not be possible. We’ll dispel those concerns. Perhaps the biggest barrier is the perception that you have to attack all the processes at once, and only critical corporate processes should be automated.
     
    In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:
     
    *        Why you don’t have to attack all processes at once.
    *        How to take a stepwise approach to knock down barriers.
    *        How to regain time lost in the labyrinth of manual processes.

This approach saddles data scientists and analysts with substantial work, creates delays getting to insights and makes real-time or near-time analysis practically impossible.
  • Why Everything You Knew about Monitoring is Wrong in the Cloud-Native World
    Why Everything You Knew about Monitoring is Wrong in the Cloud-Native World
    Daniella Pontes, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at InfluxData, Jason Bloomberg, President of Intellyx Aug 27 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Kubernetes is more than a container orchestration platform. It’s a harbinger of a new paradigm for IT we’re calling cloud-native computing.

    The cloud-native world recognizes that containers and microservices are inherently ephemeral, and that the massive scalability and performance we expect from applications and services depends upon that ephemerality.

    Monitoring such radically dynamic environments is nothing like IT monitoring used to be. Statelessness, real-time behavior, and abstractions that drive configurations, security, and integration are core to cloud-native computing. These all require a fundamentally different approach to monitoring in order to provide the visibility and control that organizations require to keep this new infrastructure paradigm working at full bore.

    Join Daniella Pontes, Senior Manager of Product Marketing at InfluxData and Jason Bloomberg, president of industry analyst firm Intellyx, for a provocative discussion of the new cloud-native computing paradigm and the monitoring challenges organizations face.

    Attendees of this webinar will:

    -Gain a broad understanding of what it means to be cloud-native

    -Understand the particular monitoring challenges cloud-native infrastructures present

    -Learn how InfluxData’s cloud-native TICK Stack centered on its InfluxDB purpose-built time-series database was built from the ground up to resolve the monitoring challenges organizations face as they move to cloud-native infrastructure.

  • How Cox Automotive Democratized Data with a Self-Service Data Exchange
    How Cox Automotive Democratized Data with a Self-Service Data Exchange
    Nathan Swetye - Sr. Manager of Platform Engineering - Cox Automotive Aug 29 2019 5:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    Cox Automotive comprises more than 25 companies dealing with different aspects of the car ownership lifecycle, with data as the common language they all share. The challenge for Cox Automotive was to create an efficient engine for the timely and trustworthy ingest of data capability for an unknown but large number of data assets from practically any source. Working with StreamSets, they are populating a data lake to democratize data, allowing analysts easy access to data from other companies and producing new data assets unique to the industry.

    In this webinar, Nathan Swetye from Cox Automotive will discuss how they:

    -Took on the challenge of ingesting data at enterprise scale and the initial efficiency and data consistency struggles they faced.
    -Created a self-service data exchange for their companies based on an architecture that decoupled data acquisition from ingestion.
    -Reduced data availability from weeks to hours and developer time by 90%.

    ITIL is dead! Long live ITIL!
    Josh Caid Sep 4 2019 1:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    ITIL, as we used to know it, was a great framework for organis ing and rationalising our IT processes. But, as an industry, we built a lot of hard-to-move bureaucracy on top of it. These days, businesses have to change rapidly to stay competitive, can ITIL survive the transition?

    Short answer - yes, but only if ITIL evolves at the same pace as digital business revolution. And the good news is this: with V4, ITIL is making the leap out from the IT department into the entire organisational value chain. In this webinar, we'll be looking at some of these differences and how they can apply to your own Digital Transformation initiatives.

  • How desktop-as-a-service makes complex IT architecture simple
    How desktop-as-a-service makes complex IT architecture simple
    Nutanix Xi Frame Sep 25 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As private and public clouds get less expensive, they’re expected to completely replace on-premises computing to make IT cheaper, easier to run, and more secure. But right now, most enterprises still have their feet in both worlds, using hybrid systems that are intended to make the lives of the CIO and the IT department easier. Unfortunately, the complexity often just adds additional cost and reduces business value.

    So how do you harness the power of a hybrid system, with any cloud provider? Desktop-as-a-service is a virtualized interface that makes the complexity of your software completely invisible to your users, and allow IT to spin up a desktop instance with one click. It’s a world where IT no less complex but a lot easier to use -- and your users far more productive.
