  • Mobility is the new frontier that is ‘still arriving’ and enterprises are grappling with how best to enable it, keeping enterprise security and employee satisfaction front and center of mind. Inherent in that balance is a careful trade-off as security is paramount but it should not come at the expense of productivity. On one hand is the Wild West with no security whatsoever and happy employees bringing in devices and apps of their choosing. On the other hand are happy enterprises with strict security controls but dissatisfied and disappearing employees! This webcast will help strike a balance that works for both entities - the User and the Enterprise. No utopia promised but you will come away with an understanding of:

    1) What the challenges around Mobility in the Enterprise are
    2) Why you should look into tacking them
    3) How one approach works for both the employees and the enterprises
  • Data breaches of all sorts, affecting credit card providers, retailers and health care providers, suggest that such breaches will continue and grow as a major risk to all organizations and their IT, security, and compliance departments. At the same time, Big Data solutions are gradually becoming more prevalent, connecting many new sources of data and thus potentially increasing both the vulnerability and the magnitude of a data breach. It is no wonder that Stratecast survey data suggest that one of IT managers’ primary concerns with Big Data is security, yet the advantages of Big Data in enabling revenue creation make it very attractive to the business. This panel discussion will explore the security issues around Big Data.

    In particular, the panel will discuss:
    •Whether Big Data necessarily increases the risk of a security breach
    •How to assess the risks associated with different types of Big Data solutions
    •How to avoid data breaches in a Big Data environment

    Abstract:
    Agile has established itself as possibly the most effective set of management practices for organizations of all sizes to deliver high-quality, useful products on a much faster schedule. But although Agile allows business to be more responsive, flexible, and engaged, it is not the right fit for every project and every team. For many projects -- especially those requiring high levels of governance and compliance, or those producing physical product -- traditional gated methodologies such as Waterfall excel at bringing the required structure, repeatability, and predictability.

    Join us to learn the benefits and drawbacks of agile and waterfall methodologies, the pros and cons of a hybrid strategy, how agile and waterfall teams can coexist, and how to determine which methodology to choose for your project and organization.

  • As wireless becomes the primary or even sole access method for more and more people, mobile operators must carry higher volumes of traffic and support more sophisticated network services including 3G/4G/5G cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc. Also they must do so in a cost-effective manner where rapidly increasing capacity demands far exceed the growth in budgets. This requires us to lower the cost of hardware, maximize the utilization from hardware and frequency assets, while reducing operational costs by embracing new techniques such as automation. Software Defined Networking (SDN) offers a logically centralized control model with programmability, and a flow-based paradigm that is suited for highly scalable mobile and wireless networks, from access to backhaul and core. This Webinar presents the use cases for OpenFlow based SDN for mobile and wireless networks. The SDN architectures provide an agile and cost-effective communications methods for addressing the above challenges.
  • Impact Sourcing (IS) is a business process service delivery model that provides quality and cost at parity with traditional Business Process Outsourcing (BPO), but with optimized enhancements.

  • As use of UC continues to grow throughout the enterprise environment, the proliferation of mobile and BYOD devices will drive UC onto the wireless network. Deploying a network for UC requires more consideration than simpler data connectivity. This presentation will look at how to design a wireless network for reliable UC use, and what steps to take to troubleshoot issues when things (inevitably) go wrong.
  • Network functions virtualization (NFV) and Software-defined networking (SDN) have the potential to revolutionize mobile service provider networks. The transformation of moving the functions out of dedicated appliances and into virtualized applications that can run on generic hardware makes carriers faster and leaner, allowing them to roll out new services more quickly and be more flexible in how they run their networks. Here we will discuss the different mobile use cases that can take benefit of SDN/NFV paradigm. This new programmable network is also future-protected and designed to help support the new demands that come with the Internet of Things (IoT), BYOD, video and more.
  • More than half of all programmatic display dollars are expected to go to mobile this year. However, a few myths regarding mobile continue to persist and are keeping brand advertisers from taking a more holistic approach to their marketing.
