    DevOps and Agile are changing the face of IT Service Management Kepner-Tregoe Recorded: Jul 19 2017 10 mins
    Christoph Goldenstern, VP of Strategy & Service Excellence at Kepner Tregoe talks about Agile and DevOps and the trend for 'flattenning' IT organizations. IT Departments still tend to be very siloed in their approach to IT incident and problem management. This approach will not work when speed is important. DevOps is going to change this and IT departments still have work to do to get there. Service integration is important and the way of managing IT is changing. We must take an end to end process view, particularly with incident change and problem management.

Utilizing geographic data in descriptive and predictive analytics helps companies discover new patterns, identify location-specific opportunities, and get a complete picture before making business decisions.

    In this webinar, Esri and SAS discuss the role that location analytics can play in determining practical next steps for your organization. A product demonstration will be shown as well.

    We’ll answer:
    • How does location analytics add value to BI and analytics initiatives?
    • What are the right uses for location analytics?
    • What pitfalls should organizations consider as they implement processes and technology for analyzing geographic data?
    • Are special skill sets required to use location information?
    • How can organizations best develop a strategy for using geographic data?

  • Mejores prácticas en las técnicas de muestreo
    Mejores prácticas en las técnicas de muestreo Tano Balbin, Gerente Técnico - Automation & Sampling Systems, Outotec Recorded: May 4 2017 58 mins
    Este webinar está enfocado en la importancia de los sistemas de muestreo en línea y su rol en los sistemas de análisis de muestras en las plantas de flotación.

    La instalación de las tuberías de manejo de muestras presentan características únicas que las diferencian de las tuberías convencionales de proceso (por ejemplo de agua de proceso o drenaje). La importancia de diseñar e instalar el sistema de muestreo es comúnmente descuidado, lo cual puede causar la pérdida de representatividad de las muestras obtenidas. Esto puede resultar en control de proceso inadecuado y terminar con una pérdida en la rentabilidad del proceso.

    El webinar cubrirá una discusión sobre cómo evitar estos problemas.
