  • PRINCE2®:n uudet (v)aatteet
    PRINCE2®:n uudet (v)aatteet Tarja Isosaari Recorded: Feb 2 2018 42 mins
    PRINCE2 on kansainvälisesti tunnettu projektinhallintamenetelmä. Monien mielestä se on jäykkä ja byrokraattinen, mutta onko näin? Tunnetko sen siis oikeasti?

    PRINCE2 jättää monta asiaa soveltajan valittavaksi ja se vaatii aina soveltamista. Siihen on helppo yhdistää myös erilaisia tekniikoita ja organisaation käyttämiä prosesseja vaikkapa tuotekehitysprosesseja tai ketteriä menetelmiä. On tärkeää, että organisaatio tekee siitä oman näköisensä ja projektipäällikkö soveltaa sitä projektiinsa huomioiden projektin vaativuuden, riskit, monimutkaisuuden jne.

    Tämä webinaari on tarkoitettu kaikille projekteissa toimiville riippumatta siitä, onko PRINCE2 uusi vai vanha tuttavuus.

    PRINCE2:n uusi painos eli 2017 edition:

    - PRINCE2:n soveltaminen niin organisaation kuin yksittäisen projektinkin tarpeisiin on pakollista
    - Kulmakivinä edelleen periaatteet, teemat, prosessit ja räätälöinti
    - Periaatteet ja teemat yhdistyvät entistä selvemmin
    - Runsaasti viittauksia ketteriin menettelyihin
    - Sertifiointeja uudistettu

  • 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 Recorded: Jan 25 2018 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.
  • 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 Recorded: Jan 25 2018 61 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives and How to Solve Them
    3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives and How to Solve Them Michael Ball-Marian, Agile Expert at CA Technologies Apr 5 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Of all the Agile practices, none is more foundational than the inspect & adapt cycle of the retrospective. Even if you struggle with every other aspect of Agile, if you consistently engage in productive retrospectives, you will get better.

    Industry surveys and studies suggest that 80% or more of Agile organizations have at least some distributed teams. Most of the traditional retrospective methods assume that all team members are co-located.

    Running effective retrospectives for distributed teams presents unique challenges, but also, potentially, some great advantages. In this webinar, Agile coach and Instant Agenda co-founder Michael Ball-Marian will discuss the three greatest challenges to running distributed Agile retrospectives and how to solve them. Michael will share a variety of tips and techniques that you can use in any retrospective, co-located or distributed. Finally, he’ll present a few ways in which a distributed retrospective can actually be better than a co-located one.
  • 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!
