  • Is 2.4GHz Dead? You decide. Is 2.4GHz Dead? You decide. Devin Akin, CEO, Divergent Dynamics Recorded: Jul 28 2016 41 mins
    The 2.4GHz ISM band has been the foundation of Wireless LAN technology for nearly two decades. With few exceptions, the 2.4GHz band is nearly (or completely) saturated with Wi-Fi and modulated and unmodulated interference sources almost everywhere. It’s for this reason that regulatory authorities like the FCC have begun making more spectrum available in the 5GHz UNII bands. If the myriad of respected analyst firms, who are all predicting the same 30+ billion always-connected devices by 2020, are correct then the 2.4GHz band will go from merely saturated to completely unusable in a very short time. Phenomena like BYOD and IoT will force Wi-Fi connectivity in homes and enterprises to move to 5GHz bands for a reasonable user experience.

Devices that typically use PoE are security cameras, access points, and VoIP phones. Join this session and learn best practices for configuration and setup of PoE as well as how to troubleshoot the most common problems you might run into.

    More and more the Service Desk is becoming the focal point of our IT function - if we get this right the business loves us but if we get it wrong ...
    The Service Desk has evolved over the last 20 years from being a “nice to have” to a critical support function to the business. Nowadays it’s the normal expectation that there will be someone at the end of the phone / email / portal 24/7 to answer any technical related question we may have, be that a request for equipment to fixing email that is not working etc.
    How can we get this right? Join Luci Allen, Head of Operations at Pink Elephant EMEA, as she guides us through the many faces of the Service Desk and gives advice and guidance on just how to get it right.

  • Optimizing the Tradeoff: Cost vs. Quality in IT Service and Support Optimizing the Tradeoff: Cost vs. Quality in IT Service and Support Jeff Rumburg, Managing Partner at MetricNet Recorded: Jul 19 2016 64 mins
    Cost vs. quality: It’s a perennial issue in technical service and support. Drive your costs too low, and you risk sacrificing the quality of service. Conversely, if you push quality too high (yes, that’s possible!), then you drive your costs through the roof. Understanding the cost/quality tradeoff is the most critical step toward optimizing your support model.

    Using data from more than 300 benchmarks worldwide, Jeff Rumburg will illustrate how top-performing service and support organizations strike an appropriate balance between the cost of service delivery and the quality of support provided. He’ll share simple yet powerful techniques that will enable organizations to pinpoint their position on the cost vs. quality curve, determine if higher (or lower) quality is justified, reduce costs without sacrificing quality, and improve quality without increasing costs.

    Finally, he’ll share an interactive scorecard that organizations can use to determine whether service and support has been optimized, and, if it hasn’t, to identify the tangible steps needed to achieve an optimized support model.

  • Prevent Security Risks of Third Parties through Managing Privileged Access Prevent Security Risks of Third Parties through Managing Privileged Access Karl Lankford, Stacy Blaiss Aug 5 2016 1:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Increasingly, high-profile data breaches are tracked to compromised third-parties or privileged accounts, which is often the attack pathway taken by cyber criminals. Privileged account credentials with connections to valuable systems give hackers access to critical systems without triggering any alarms, making those people and roles ideal targets.

  • Using Lean IT  metrics to streamline ITSM Using Lean IT metrics to streamline ITSM David Smith President Micromation Inc. ITSM, ITIL, Lean, Kaizen, ISO, TCO, Author – Implementing Metrics Aug 10 2016 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Since IT is primarily “Knowledge Work” it’s critical we understand our productivity vs. the value we create. Time is the key factor in calculating productivity. It is also important to know what value-added vs. non-value activities consume our time.

    Leading organizations are tapping into a new Lean IT measurement model to better understand how to measure throughput, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of ITSM services.

    There are three common measurement constraints:
    1. What to measure for value creation, alignment and operational excellence.
    2. Interpreting results. Many lack the skills and methods required to analyze metrics data to support corrective or preventative action.
    3. Getting/trusting data. Underlying data collections systems are not designed to support analytical methods required for management decision making and/or are not trustworthy.

    This session is about how savvy IT managers are implementing a new Lean IT monitoring and metrics and ITSM.

    In 45 minutes we’ll cover: 
    What’s Lean all about
    How Lean maximizes customer value by minimizing waste
    Critical to quality measurement for ITSM
    Value stream mapping technique

  • 2016 Webroot Quarterly Threat Update 2016 Webroot Quarterly Threat Update Grayson Milbourne | Security Intelligence Director Aug 16 2016 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    According to the latest annual Webroot Threat Brief, 97% of malware is unique to a specific endpoint, rendering static, signature-database security virtually useless. In fact, many attacks are staged, delivered, and terminated within a matter of hours, or even minutes, having harvested user credentials and other sensitive information. With the rising popularity of polymorphism and other trends, it is more crucial than ever that organizations strengthen their security postures with next-generation endpoint protection and real-time, highly accurate threat intelligence.

  • Screen Sharing Worth 1000 Chats Screen Sharing Worth 1000 Chats Donald Hasson Aug 23 2016 6:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Chat is an excellent channel to improve service desk productivity, but when dealing with complex issues, it’s sometimes not enough. If your chat solution is implemented in a standalone silo, then customers may have to transfer to phone support when their issues go beyond the point of text, resulting in a disjointed customer experience. But if the chat transitions directly into a screen-sharing session, the support agent can instantly see and resolve the issue while maintaining a seamless conversation. This session will outline how to increase the value and power of chat through integrating it with other solutions such as remote support, knowledge bases, CRM and more. Turn your service desk into a one-stop-shop with a modern, integrated approach to support.

  • Using your Load Balancer for Application Performance Monitoring Using your Load Balancer for Application Performance Monitoring Ashish Shah, Director of Product, Avi Networks Aug 25 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Load balancers occupy an important position (in the path of application traffic) on the enterprise network. Yet, traditional application delivery controllers (ADCs) are unable to provide meaningful application insights to drive business decisions. Avi Networks’ software-defined architecture for load balancing separates the control plane (management layer) from the data plane (load balancers) to generate continuous insights about applications.

    In this 30 minute presentation from Avi Networks, learn how you can get rich analytics and actionable insights into end user experience, application performance, resource utilization, security, and anomalous behavior. See how you can benefit from:

    • A “Network DVR” to record and replay traffic events to pinpoint app issues
    • At-a-glance view of all virtual services throughout the system
    • Real-time visibility into DDoS attacks, SSL versions and ciphers used in transactions
    • Health scores that give you immediate feedback on application performance
