The Industrial Internet of Things is rapidly evolving, both in terms of its business requirements and the enabling technologies needed to improve decision-making and gain competitive advantage. The ideal technical solution should be able to fuse streaming Fast Data coming from IoT devices and sensors with static Big Data about customers and assets.
In this webinar, hosted by Brian Clark of Objectivity and analyst Jason Stamper of 451 Research, we’ll discuss how to augment these critical categories:
We’ll explain the technical challenges involved when supporting massive volumes of data in a mixed workload environment, and how to leverage open technologies, such as Spark and HDFS, to enable real-time IoT intelligence.
Security practitioners must take a proactive, inside out approach to managing their organization’s cyber risk. But the challenges lie in effectively measuring the overall risk posture of the business. The manual process tied to analyzing security data today is demanding and error prone. To address this, the security and risk department needs an automated and repeatable process that makes sense of the volumes of security data from their existing solutions. This would allow them to effectively communicate a traceable and actionable view of cyber risk to line of business owners and the board of directors.
Please join us on Thursday, April 28, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. PT for a live Bay Dynamics webinar as Humphrey Christian, Vice President, Product Management, explains how your organization can obtain a 360 degree view of your cyber risk posture.
Recent high profile data breaches have made it obvious that organizations often underestimate the risk their vendors present, and struggle to evaluate third party cyber risk.
In this webinar Mike Rothman, Analyst & President of Securosis, and Tom Turner, President and COO of BitSight describe how organizations can build a systematic means to evaluate their IT risk presented by business partners and vendors.
Viewers will learn about:
- Understanding Third Party IT Risk
- Structuring Vendor Risk Management Programs
- Evaluating Vendor Risk
- Ongoing Vendor Monitoring and Communication

Imagine if Google or Amazon went a year or two without updating their cloud or adding new features. OpenStack private clouds must interoperate and compete with public clouds at an economic and technological capabilities level. That means updating to the latest version of OpenStack as smoothly and quickly as possible. Fortunately, Ubuntu OpenStack is designed with exactly that in mind.
In this “don’t wait!” update, we review the key new features in OpenStack Mitaka. We’ll discuss why they’re important and what they do for your OpenStack cloud; updates like Live Migration, rolling upgrades, and Neutron role-based QoS, to name a few. We also talk about some of the tools that have helped make Ubuntu the platform for the vast majority of OpenStack installations.
- The latest OpenStack has the stability improvements of all previous versions, there’s no need to wait to upgrade
- OpenStack Mitaka has scalability, resiliency and manageability improvements throughout all the core projects
- Ubuntu OpenStack and Canonical’s tools reduce time to initial deployment
- Upgrading to OpenStack Mitaka is a standardized process if you’re using MaaS and Juju
- Core features of Ubuntu have been updated or added to better support OpenStack Mitaka clouds, like LXD and ZFS
Come hear Mark Baker, Canonical’s OpenStack product and strategy lead, explain what’s new in OpenStack Mitaka, why those features are important, and how Canonical is delivering tools to make them easy to consume, and easily upgradeable. A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Canonical found that ease of expansion and upgradeability is the most important must-have for a cloud platform. Ubuntu OpenStack ensures you never get left behind the cloud curve.

Do you have or want to have a modern, agile, perhaps self-service, cloud infrastructure?
Are you struggling with or considering how many disparate workloads are deployed?
How will you gain useful insight into who's using which resources, and how do you appropriately charge users, departments, the customers of IT, for the resources they consume?
Even in a flat or no charge back model, the ability to analyse and, more importantly, predict consumption, is vital to managing and growing any sort of modern IT infrastructure.
With the rapid implementation and usage growth of modern clouds, it is vital that proper environmental analytics are gathered. Join Canonical and Talligent to learn how to measure and analyse business-critical consumption and cost data from a single to multi or hybrid cloud infrastructure. We'll discuss cloud computing in the context of BootStack, a managed OpenStack offering based on Ubuntu. Talligent's OpenBook software demonstrates how and why to perform cloud measurement, billing and potentially charge back.
John Meadows, VP of Business Development for Talligent, has an engineering background. He has worked on cost model development for software, provided direct input on virtualisation management systems for both software and hardware, and understands the importance of the intersection of operations, consulting, competitive analysis, and market alignment.

Big data solutions involve many technologies working together. Whether it’s collection, analysis, or action, all of those components must be configured, their relationships defined, and deployed. In today’s dynamic data environment, the deployment is bound to change, need to be updated, or replicated. You need an infrastructure and tool set that keep your focus on the data. Flexibility in big data infrastructure automation, and examples of use cases are discussed in detail in this webinar.
