  • Take Advantage of Business Moments with Apache Kafka
    Take Advantage of Business Moments with Apache Kafka Bill McLane, Product Evangelist, TIBCO Software Recorded: Oct 15 2018 23 mins
    Sometimes a moment is all you have.

    A successful digital business must be able to detect and intelligently respond in real-time to business moments. Either to take advantage of an opportunity or to prevent a tragic loss, these moments and how we respond to them define our organization’s success or failures as well as our path forward.

    These moments could be focused on improving the customer experience, gaining operational efficiencies, or mitigating risks. At the very center of such moments lies an architecture that has the ability to move information between disparate systems or devices and to identify the meaningful events within the ever-increasing volumes of data.

    This is what Apache Kafka was designed to do. Kafka is a streaming platform based on a distributed, persistent, publish-subscribe logging system.

    TIBCO recently announced full support for Apache Kafka. This webinar will take a closer look at exactly what TIBCO is offering as part of their support and how to take advantage of partnering with TIBCO for your Kafka projects.

    Watch this brief (20 minute) webinar to learn:
    -The components of the TIBCO® Messaging - Apache Kafka Distribution
    Apache Kafka Core
    -TIBCO Apache Kafka Bridge
    -TIBCO Apache Kafka Schema Repository
    -How the TIBCO Apache Kafka Bridge provides for native integration between Apache Kafka to seamlessly connect with all the TIBCO Messaging components
    -How integration between Apache Kafka and other TIBCO solutions provide advanced capabilities beyond standard Apache Kafka deployments

  • Blockchain and Energy: Electrifying!
    Blockchain and Energy: Electrifying! Victoria Brown, Senior Research Manager, IDC Retail Insights and Nelson Petracek, CTO, TIBCO Software Inc Recorded: Oct 9 2018 21 mins
    Digital transformation is continuing to change the way we look at building applications. For years, enterprises have been attempting to streamline energy functions by building marketplaces, “standardized” exchange formats, and monolithic systems. However, in many cases, these solutions have missed the mark and resulted in processes that are fragmented, brittle, and unable to share data seamlessly.

    Blockchain, the underlying technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency platforms, can potentially address many of these issues. The ability to share information via a shared, trusted distributed network with embedded business logic has many potential benefits for the energy industry, especially when combined with techniques from the IoT and AI communities. Join this panel discussion to hear about enterprise blockchains, how to determine the value of blockchain to your enterprise, and several items (including myths) that must be considered for a successful blockchain enterprise implementation.

  • The Rise of Exponential Organizations (ExO)
    The Rise of Exponential Organizations (ExO) Salim Ismail Oct 24 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A new technology that scales quickly from one to a million users has become a common and straightforward phenomenon. Scaling an organization at exponential speed, however, is quite another matter. Organizational growth is usually linear—incremental and slow. In recent years, however, exponential organizations (ExOs) such as Oculus, Airbnb, WhatsApp, and DropBox have experienced dramatic growth trajectories and achieved multi-billion dollar valuations in just a few years.

    Unlike traditional businesses that combine assets and workforces within organizational boundaries, ExOs leverage the world around them, such as other people’s cars and spare rooms. In some cases, they are outperforming their competitors by as much as tenfold.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for one of the most interesting presentations you will attend all year. Scott's special guest presenter is Salim Ismail, the best-selling author of Exponential Organizations, a sought-after business strategist, and a serial entrepreneur, having founded technology companies including Ångströ, which was acquired by Google in 2010. He is also the Founding Executive Director of Singularity University.

  • Challenges and Myths of Enterprise Blockchain
    Challenges and Myths of Enterprise Blockchain Rao Cherukuri, CTO and James Penney, Director, Product Management Nov 14 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar will explore:
    •Reality checks of Private Blockchain implementations
    •IAM a key security and foundation layer in Enterprise Blockchain implementations
    •Options to protect private keys and crypto keys
    •Ensuring data security and privacy between participating entities

    With the hype and popularity of crypto currencies, there has been tremendous publicity about Blockchain, the distributed ledger technology and its use cases. The hype around blockchain is growing with the vast majority of Enterprises saying they are “actively involved” in the technology.

    Blockchain relies heavily on Public Key cryptography, but it doesn’t have a defined security model to secure the participating nodes and associated private keys.

    Enterprise private blockchain operations are substantially different, often utilize a permissioned network in which consensus can be achieved through a process called “selective endorsement,” where authorized peers verify the transactions. The advantage of this for businesses is that only participants with the appropriate access and permissions can maintain the transaction ledger. This calls for traditional Enterprise IAM (Identity and Access Management) methodologies to be extended to participating nodes.

    Device Authority specializes in device centric IAM with a focus on automated PKI and security management functions for entities and data. Our KeyScaler platform delivers the entity and data trust at scale for any Enterprise Blockchain implementation.

  • Structured Writing Practices to Improve Cognition for Both Man and Machine
    Structured Writing Practices to Improve Cognition for Both Man and Machine Rob Hanna Dec 12 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The future of technical communication demands greater precision, knowledge, and discipline in how we create content across an omnichannel universe. It also requires better collaborative writing practices that will meet the need for faster delivery of information. The precision we require involves working with more granular content containing richer metadata. The topic becomes a container for these blocks of reusable content. Each block of content is written to evoke the intended reader response for that content. While these smaller blocks of content require more discipline, they are ultimately easier to write as they are more tightly focused on the need for that information.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Rob Hanna, President at Precision Content Authoring Services, for this free one-hour session. Rob will look at some of the writing and analysis techniques they use at Precision Content to enable content for both the present and future—man and machine.

    Attendees will learn to see content differently from the perspective of:
    –Language Arts for Information vs. Language Arts for Personal Response
    –Four cognitive principles for analyzing and organizing information for better comprehension, and
    –Information typing and how it relates to defining the intended reader response for that content.
  • Using Universally Faceted Nano Content to Improve Findability
    Using Universally Faceted Nano Content to Improve Findability John O'Gorman Dec 12 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Technical communications has progressed from monolithic paper and digital manuals, to structured, topic-based authoring, and more recently down to 'microcontent' to improve quality, ease of access and consistency of message. 'Nano-content' is the next logical step in that progression and lives at the 'coalface' between content and data. It is the bridge between structured data and structured topics which, when properly managed, can add several new dimensions to technical publications work.

    Universally faceted nano-content is a technique that takes a page from GPS applications that use triangulation (latitude, longitude, and elevation) to locate things in geographic space. Locating things in digital space should be just as intuitive and precise.

    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for this webinar with his special guest, John O’Gorman, Principal and Chief Disambiguation Officer at Quantum Semantics. John will walk through the process of identifying, classifying and using terminology to connect the language of a business or application to the content that supports its use. He will demonstrate how the same process can be extended to the content itself and how, in combination, faceted terminology takes findability to a whole new level.

    ABOUT JOHN O'GORMAN

    John O'Gorman is a 30-year veteran of the information management trenches. He is the inventor of a universal classification protocol called Q6, and co-founder of Q6FSA, an enterprise information management collaboration with Robert Vane in the UK. His experiences run the gamut from terminology stores and data catalogs, to executive information reporting, data warehousing, activity-based costing and technical communications, localization and internationalization. His big 'aha' moment came when he realized that all of them are made of the same stuff and follow the same rules.

  • Turning Structured Content into 'How To' Videos
    Turning Structured Content into 'How To' Videos Wouter Maagdenberg, TXTOMedia Dec 13 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Structured content is an ideal starting place for creating and producing rich media in bulk. A new technology created by TXTOmedia transforms this native and localized written documentation into rich media, such as animation, live-action video, and interactive visuals in an automated, fast, and cost-effective way — enabling versioning and respecting existing workflow processes within large organizations.

    TXTOmedia supports XML and Structured Content in multiple languages which is then parsed by and transformed into rich media automatically. This allows you to take existing structured content and create video, slides, visual TOC, Hot Spot Images and Interactive Product Models.
     
    Takeaways:

    –Watch instead of read; visuals and video are preferred above text by most audiences.
    – Rich media creation is no longer a painful manual and disconnected process
    –Technical publications become more vital for sales.
