  • Perception and Design: A Science-Based Approach for Creating Content that Works
    Perception and Design: A Science-Based Approach for Creating Content that Works
    Tina Kister, Information Developer Recorded: Sep 17 2019 62 mins
    When it comes to content, design is inevitable. The question is whether it works. Design is at least 15 times more important than content when it comes to user trust and engagement. In as few as 15 milliseconds, users form first impressions that have measurable consequences for credibility, usability, and engagement.
     
    We tend to think of design as either “good” or “bad,” and as a mysterious and magical thing with a life of its own inspired by an elusive muse and completely subjective in nature. However, design is fundamentally neutral in nature, with no inherent positive or negative qualities. The way we respond to design is based on a complex, yet predictable, interaction between sensory stimuli and human anatomy, neurobiology, and cognition.
     
    The term “design” refers either to the arrangement of things or to the act of arranging things. “Intentional design” refers to the act of deliberately arranging elements to solve a specific problem – that is, to elicit a desired response.
     
    When it comes to content, design is critical. Whether you use intentional design or not, content and design are inseparable; users inevitably perceive and respond to design, and it always makes an impression. So, the key to creating compelling content is learning to use intentional design, rather than incidental design.
     
    Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his guest, Tina Kister, for this one-hour webinar. Kister will explore the correlations between the science of perception and the discipline of design, and how both are integral to creating effective content. Tina will also distill the basics of design into a few simple concepts, and provide a few basic rules you can use to ensure that every design choice is intentional and effective.

    We hope to see you there!

  • Data Cleanup with Semantic Technologies — Cleaning Up Your Data Landfill
    Data Cleanup with Semantic Technologies — Cleaning Up Your Data Landfill
    Andreas Blumauer & Bruno Wildhaber Recorded: Aug 28 2019 60 mins
    Data growth and chaotic data management is causing ever-increasing costs and user discontent. More and more “digital landfills” are created — completely obsolete data that continues to be stored and managed unnecessarily. International studies show that around 70-80% of all stored data is of no use to the organization, increasing the overall cost for managing data.

    How can the valuable data be separated from the Redundant, Outdated, Trivial (ROT) data which is duplicated, obsolete, or has no meaning for the organization?

    The traditional approach is to manually identify and clean files, folders, data structures and the like. But this manual approach is limited, merely because of the amounts of data stored in an average organization. Consequently, an automated solution is required. An important starting point is the automatic classification of all data in order to be able to eliminate ROT data objects continuously.

    Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Communication Wrangler with his special guests, Andreas Blumauer, CEO and founder of Semantic Web Company and Bruno Wildhaber, Managing Partner at Swiss Information Governance Competence Centre. Andreas and Bruno will look into success criteria of data cleanup but also discuss the governance model.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • How is the cleanup process set up?
    • What is the role of semantic technologies and how can they support the cleanup process?
    • How to identify “valuable” vs. ROT-data? What is “valuable” data? Which quality criteria must valuable data meet and who defines them?
    • How can complex rules for automatic cleanup not only be implemented but also made maintainable?

  • How to reduce IoT device onboarding time to seconds and improve IoT security
    How to reduce IoT device onboarding time to seconds and improve IoT security
    Richard Kerslake, Intel and James Penney, Device Authority Recorded: Aug 14 2019 57 mins
    Want to realize faster IoT device onboarding with additional security capabilities such as credential management and data security?

    Today, a manual process exists where device ownership is transferred, activated in the field, configured on the network, and registered with the device owner in an IoT management platform. This time-intensive and costly process is fraught with security holes, as exemplified by recent large-scale attacks in which device manufacturers have shipped default credentials that were co-opted for botnet-style DNS attacks.

    Imagine you’re going to install 10,000 smart light bulbs in a factory. How much time should you schedule? Before they can start streaming data, you need to key in each device identity, coordinate network credentials with IT, and register each device with the operational technology (OT) smart building control platform. If you guessed 20 minutes per bulb, you’re about right. For 10,000 bulbs, you’d need almost two years!

    You can imagine that if you have thousands and thousands of devices in larger projects this leads to quite some costs.

    Once you’ve onboarded the devices, what next?
    Do you need help managing credentials such as PKI certificates or default passwords?
    Do you have the correct level of data security and privacy for your use case?
    Are you leveraging automation without human intervention for IoT devices out in the wild?

    With speakers from Intel and Device Authority, the discussion will include:
    • Secure by Design: An approach to address IoT security challenges
    • Ownership transfer, zero-touch onboarding and registering of devices (in seconds!)
    • Credential management

    How to enhance and manage your IoT security in a Microsoft Azure environment
    James Penney, Device Authority and Ian Banham, Microsoft Oct 16 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    IoT platforms like Microsoft Azure IoT provide several capabilities and features to build and deploy IoT applications, solutions and services in a better, faster, more cost-effective and integrated way. IoT platforms also provide quick interconnection of assets and support a wide variety of operating systems and devices.

    While the IoT Platform vendors and ecosystem partners continue to evolve, security is still the #1 concern for its adoption. This is introduced by the scale of IoT, its unique characteristics, disparate components involved, as well as the consequences of compromised security. The IoT continues to grow rapidly but concerns about security remain a significant barrier and are hindering the adoption.

    Enterprise IoT security solutions typically use owner-controlled security posture
    and need to integrate with IoT Platforms’ device and data management.

    The webinar discussion will include:

    • Challenges of building, deploying and securing IoT – on premise and in the cloud
    • A real world Automotive / Connected Car use case; the problem/challenge and the solution
