  • Onnistu käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnan (IAM) kehittämisessä
    Onnistu käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnan (IAM) kehittämisessä Eetu Niemi Recorded: Feb 16 2018 48 mins
    Digitalisaatio ja tietosuojavaatimuksiin (esim. GDPR) vastaaminen ei onnistu ilman hyvin toimivaa käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallintaa (Identity and Access Management, IAM). Se on kuitenkin laaja kokonaisuus, joka vieläpä liittyy organisaatioissa ”kaikkeen”. Siksi käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnan kehittäminen on tehtävä harkitusti ja vaatii kokonaisnäkemyksen kehitettävästä IAM-ratkaisusta.

    Tässä webinaarissa opit

    · mistä käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnassa on kysymys

    · mitkä ovat käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnan hyödyt

    · mistä komponenteista käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallintaratkaisu käytännössä koostuu

    · miten käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnan kehittämisessä kannattaa edetä

    Puhuja: Eetu Niemi

    Eetu on arkkitehtuurin monitoimimies, joka on tehnyt erityisen paljon töitä käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnan sekä kokonaisarkkitehtuurin parissa. Käyttäjä- ja pääsynhallinnan ratkaisuja hän on suunnitellut ja toteuttanut useilla toimialoilla. Hänellä on kokemusta niin arkkitehtuurisuunnittelusta ja määrittelystä kuin myös teknisestä suunnittelusta ja tuotteiden konfiguroinnista.

  • How API Adoption Boosts Profits
    How API Adoption Boosts Profits Marshall Van Alstyne, MIT fellow & Boston University professor; David Berlind, Editor-in-Chief of ProgrammableWeb Recorded: Feb 15 2018 60 mins
    The enterprise world is changing faster than ever. To compete, it is now necessary to do business at an almost unprecedented size and scale. Facebook, PayPal, Alibaba—these seemingly disparate companies have upended entire industries by harnessing a single phenomenon: the platform business model.

    In order to achieve this scale, winning companies are establishing digital platforms with APIs that extend their organizational boundaries.

    Attendees will learn from MIT Fellow and Boston University Professor Marshall Van Alstyne and ProgrammableWeb Editor-in-Chief David Berlind:

    - Why enterprises need APIs and API strategy models
    - The impact of API adoption and complementary investments on enterprise performance and revenue growth, based on new research
    - About an “owner’s manual” for creating a platform marketplace, revealing the strategies behind some of today’s rising platforms
  • Accounting for the Endpoint in Your GDPR Strategy
    Accounting for the Endpoint in Your GDPR Strategy Josh Evans, product manager, Code42; Abhik Mitra, product marketing manager, Code42 Recorded: Feb 15 2018 45 mins
    The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) deadline of May 2018 is fast approaching! In the midst of preparing for the new regulation, it is equally important to understand how to provide visibility into endpoint data generated by your knowledge workers, and how to protect it.

    In this live webinar, Code42’s Josh Evans, product manager, and Abhik Mitra, product marketing manager, will discuss how Code42 addresses the endpoint gap and enables your GDPR strategy.
  • Container troubleshooting with Sysdig
    Container troubleshooting with Sysdig Jorge Salamero Sanz, Technical Marketing Manager, Sysdig Recorded: Feb 15 2018 45 mins
    SSHing into a container for troubleshooting or burdening it with additional monitoring tools is kind of an anti-pattern. But… you still want to have full control, traceability and visibility right? Containers are highly volatile, how can you do this if your container doesn’t exist anymore?

    Sysdig uses Linux tracepoints to collect and then process and filter kernel system calls and events. Still this requires a deep knowledge on a tcpdump like filtering syntax and understanding on the syscalls involved. Sysdig Inspect makes our deep dive into system calls much more intuitive and visual though a graphical user interface that allows to correlate high level activities like containers, processes, containers, network or file I/O and commands, events or logs.

    In this webinar series you will get to know how Sysdig and Sysdig inspect works through a series of practical examples:

    -Exploration and performance analysis of container, processes, network and file activity on a typical Wordpress setup
    -Debug a 502 HTTP error on a load-balanced Python app with HAproxy
    -Troubleshoot a Kubernetes CrashLoopBackOff error

    Who should attend?

    If you're managing containers in production, using containers for development or just beginning our container exploration, you'll want to attend to understand the challenges of troubleshooting system or application errors when running inside containers.

  • How To Achieve Single Pane of Glass Performance Management
    How To Achieve Single Pane of Glass Performance Management John Worthington,Director of Product Marketing, eG Innovations Recorded: Feb 14 2018 56 mins
    Achieving a single pane of glass for performance management has been an elusive goal, as organizations are faced with an increasingly complex mix of legacy, virtual and cloud technologies, as well as emerging operating models and evolving roles/skillsets.

    But, monitoring the performance of digital business services demands more than visibility to just the end user experience, applications, or the underlying infrastructure. It requires an ability to automatically anticipate and isolate performance issues across a heterogeneous mix of technologies, devices and suppliers.

    Digital business services are how end users experience IT, and that is how IT services must be managed. Achieving unified performance management will continue to be elusive until all stakeholders are aligned with this approach.

    Join this webinar, as John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG innovations, details some best practices for achieving the single pane of glass vision. Attendees will receive the related White Paper, "Best Practices for Achieving Transparency in Digital Business Services Monitoring".

    In this webinar, you will:
    -Learn how monitoring can be leveraged in continuous improvement and other transformative change programs
    -See how converged APM/IPM can accelerate achievement of a single point of glass for performance monitoring
    -Identify some best practices you can apply for achieving unified monitoring and improving organizational transparency

  • Revealing the Blind Spots in Your IT Infrastructure Spend
    Revealing the Blind Spots in Your IT Infrastructure Spend John Cole, Solutions Principal, AHEAD Recorded: Feb 13 2018 32 mins
    IT leaders in the driver’s seat of their organization are constantly focused on the road ahead—including forces reshaping the industry and emerging technology trends. But the road to digital transformation is riddled with blind spots—whether in the form of hidden infrastructure costs or obstructed views of multi-year, total cost of ownership (TCO).

    In a “do-more-with-less” world, IT decision-makers are tasked with not only pursuing the latest and greatest in tech initiatives, but also keeping the lights on while improving service levels. So, what if you could take those sunken costs and eliminate or repurpose them to fuel company-wide innovation? This webinar addresses just that: identifying improvements in operations to fund modernization within your organization.

    AHEAD Solutions Principal John Cole outlines a roadmap to data center optimization, including:

    -Top enterprise IT objectives for 2018—and best practices for success
    -Analyzing committed data center costs—and repurposing those funds to eliminate incremental budget approvals
    -IT infrastructure maintenance—and effectively managing multiple vendors and contracts
    -AHEAD’s “Harvest to Invest” initiative—and how we helped a large healthcare system identify significant cost savings opportunities
