It’s no secret that the purpose of having people answering phones in a contact center is to help customers purchase your goods and services, and then keep them happy after the sale. However, achieving these goals is difficult for many companies because they rely on contact center technology leftover from an era when the voice phone call was king. Meanwhile, the consumer—and even the B2B customer—has moved to using multiple channels of communications: voice calls, email, online chat, SMS, and social media. In this webinar we will discuss the benefits and opportunities of an integrated and multi-channel cloud contact center for both customer and agent satisfaction.

Enterprise IT and security experts are under increasing pressure to respond to complex network changes to keep up with growing business demands. Lack of network visibility hinders the ability to deliver services and applications with the security, speed and accuracy required for today’s heterogeneous IT environments. Add to this, the demand to mitigate cyber threats by reducing attack surface and improving overall security posture.
Together, Tufin Orchestration Suite™ with Fortinet® Firewalls and FortiManager Network Security Management enable IT security teams to manage complex heterogeneous networks through a single pane of glass.
In this session, experts from Fortinet and Tufin will show how security and network teams can achieve:
•Visibility for the security posture and control of complex networks—from on-premise networks across hybrid cloud environments

In this session we’ll show you how you can get applications into the cloud rapidly and effectively by using the OpenStack application catalog project Murano. The catalog can include everything from simple components like a Dockerized web server or database to complex clustered configurations of multiple dependent app components with associated network, storage, and compute configurations. Customer examples include everything from clusters of Microsoft backoffice systems to containerized Virtualized Network Functions.
The Murano project accomplishes this by being more than a catalog for applications and services. Murano packages allow the developer to define a user interface so the cloud user is only asked for relevant input when the deploy, upgrade, scale out, or execute other app lifecycle actions. Murano uses a powerful cloud workflow engine to implement lifecycle actions that orchestrate application components into complex environments. The operator can leverage localized templates in Heat, Puppet, or Ansible to assure that Murano uses the appropriate network, storage, backup, or other processes for their specific cloud.
How we think about and architect network security has stayed fairly constant for quite some time.
Until we moved to the cloud.
Things may look the same on the surface, but dig a little deeper and you quickly realize that network security for cloud computing and hybrid networks requires a different mindset, different tools, and a new approach. Hybrid networks complicate management, both in your data center and in the cloud. Each side uses a different basic configuration and security controls, so the challenge is to maintain consistency across both, even though the tools you use – such as your nifty next generation firewall – might not work the same (if at all) in both environments.
Presented by AlgoSec and Rich Mogull, Analyst and CEO at Securosis, this webinar explains how cloud network security is different, and how to pragmatically manage it for both pure cloud and hybrid cloud networks. We will start with some background material and Cloud Networking 101, then move into cloud network security controls, and specific recommendations on how to use and manage them in a hybrid environment.

In this session, you will learn how to navigate the mobile architecture decision process to select the right mix of native and HTML5 in order to achieve the perfect balance of richness of use, development productivity, and apps built for the long haul.
Communications for business is moving to the cloud for easier tools for teams to meet, collaborate, and get their job done. However, the traditional “build it and they will come” approach to deploying Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) drives less than optimal results because knowledge workers frequently grab a set of tools on their own, creating islands of knowledge and collaborative work.
To respond to this challenge, organizations need integrated tools that help knowledge workers gain the full benefits of cloud solutions that enable teams to connect, communicate and collaborate using their favorite methods and devices, anytime, anywhere. In this webinar, we will discuss:
•The current state of knowledge workers today
•How UC&C is changing, especially by taking advantage of cloud deployment
•Assessing your workforce’s needs, including remote offices, mobility, and collaboration with people outside your organization such as vendors and customers
•Efficiencies gained by standardizing unified communications in the cloud
•Key steps needed to evaluate and plan your transition to cloud based UC&C

According to a PwC report “One of the main reasons many banks world over have resisted embracing a customer-centric model is because of integration challenges.”
The future of most financial institutions depend on the strong connections they forge with customers. The relationship between banks and customers are constantly evolving and they need to adapt and connect in new ways with the customer to remain competitive today and win tomorrow’s customer. Mobile technology and social media are presenting opportunities and challenges to reach out to the customers like never before. While driving customer centric transformation initiatives are important for the bank, it is also extremely critical for the banks to have a strong Run the Bank strategy to drive operational efficiencies and manage cost pressures. Business integration plays a very critical and powerful role in designing and implementing Transform the bank and Run the bank initiatives. Despite the evident dividends banks seem to wrestle with their technology plans and investment decisions.
In this session, we will address a few effective strategies for banks to address the challenges posed with integrating technology and business and how banks can take the leap towards
a)Leveraging the strong multichannel interaction and delivering a seamless customer experience
b)Segmenting consumers dynamically through real-time insights
c)Tailoring real time offers based on real-time customer data
d)Run the bank initiatives with focus on efficiencies and cost savings.
With the right partner and technology expertise, you can deliver seamless banking experience to your customer.

With each passing year, the frequency and number of organisations that are hacked increases at a dizzying rate. No industry vertical can ignore this trend. One of the key challenges facing all business is to come to grips rapidly with an ever-changing threat landscape.
How can your organisation understand specifically what threats is being targeted with? In order to answer this question business need to be able to quantify and qualify the threats aligned against them. In essence being able to understand what malicious actor’s know about an organisation and how that knowledge may be deployed in attack campaigns and vectors.

Defense in depth is another one of those often-used, but rarely-defined, terms in Information Security circles. Sure, it means a layered defense, that’s obvious. But what makes up the layers? How do they interact for better security? And what does a best-practice implementation look like today vs. even a few years ago?
Continuous Delivery boils down to two essential elements: quality and speed. It depends upon the ability to take a business requirement from the initial idea to deployment at pace, without compromising quality.
However, speed and quality are often viewed as opposing elements, where you can have one, but not the other. Testing is often blamed, as it is viewed as something which is necessary to guarantee quality, but which slows projects down. Thorough testing is therefore often abandoned as the deadline looms, leading to defects and, eventually, a poor user experience.
To keep up with the pace of Continuous Delivery in “the New World”, testing needs to be made less manual, more systematic, and more reactive to constant change. In this talk, Huw Price will explore how model-based testing can be used to achieve this, “shifting left” the effort of testing into the design phase, and fully automating testing thereafter.
Having set out the common challenges faced when testing, a full demonstration will be provided of how test cases, data and virtual assets needed to fully test a system can be derived automatically from the requirements themselves, and how these can be automatically updated when the requirements change. Flowchart modelling will be suggested, as a way to bridge the gap between IT and business initiatives, so that testing iteratively and necessarily validates that the changing requirements set out by the business are implemented.
With the adoption of high speed broadband and 4G mobile today’s digital consumer has a higher expectation that ever. Exceeding these expectations is a big part of a successful customer journey. In this webinar you’ll get insight into the role that network performance plays in delivering online excellence.
