  • Big Data Drives Big Efficiency Big Data Drives Big Efficiency Matt Aslett - 451 Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics with Aali Masood, Senior Director, Oracle Nov 1 2016 4:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Improving the efficiency of existing processes is critical for enterprises, and one of the first proof points of many big data projects. In the long-term enterprises may be looking for big data to generate revenue from new projects and applications, but proving the potential benefits by improving the efficiency of existing business processes – such as optimizing supply chains, or accelerating compliance – is a good place to start. Additionally, operating more efficiently at lower cost and with lower risk enables an organization to redirect budget towards driving growth.

    Join Oracle and 451 Research for a webinar exploring how to make this operational efficiency possible through a combination of data management, statistical analysis and visualization.

  • Why you need native real-time communications in your SaaS products Why you need native real-time communications in your SaaS products Sean Hsieh, Founder & Chief Product Officer at Flowroute & Donnie Berkholz, Research Director at 451 Research Nov 15 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Communications is undergoing a massive transformation from on-premise systems that support generic calling uses, to innovative hosted solutions, allowing organizations to benefit from developers integrating communications tightly into their business processes.

    Much of this shift is causing businesses to migrate away from integration with and maintenance of legacy systems to using hosted PBX, unified communications, and contact center solutions, with the primary goal of freeing internal resources to focus on areas that will differentiate the business. But in moving to hosted offerings, they are often able to tap into increased capabilities with lower barriers to entry and faster time to value. Similarly, some businesses are using the chance to move away from on-premises equipment to adopt highly tailored, industry-specific solutions that integrate all communications into the flow of work and enable them and their customers to benefit from solutions that previously were beyond economic or technical reach.

    As digital transformation becomes pervasive, your customers expect simple, seamless, customized experiences across multiple channels at any time and on any device. Their desire for immediate outcomes is pushing businesses to think outside of the box to implement real-time communications that will ultimately drive transactions.

    During this webcast, we will discuss:
    ● How businesses can programmatically add and customize communication services like voice calling, text messaging and authentication into their applications.
    ● Key factors to help businesses select the right communications provider during the decision-making process
    ● Real-life use cases that have successfully built and deployed real-time communications such as call masking, appointment reminders, call tracking, and contact center.

  • Influencing Application Performance Using SD-WAN - What you need to know Influencing Application Performance Using SD-WAN - What you need to know Steve Woo, Co-founder and VP of Products, VeloCloud Dec 1 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Historically, Enterprises needed to only be focused and concerned with the performance, prioritization and quality of applications hosted in the branch or inside private data centers. Traditional Wide Area Networks were able to meet these requirements for decades. This model has changed dramatically and is breaking the traditional WAN with the introduction and increased adoption of Software-as-a-Service, Infrastructure-as-a-Service, and Platform-as-a-Service along with reliance on the Internet to carry these applications to the branch.

    Join us for a detailed analysis of the right Cloud-Delivered SD-WAN architecture for delivering the best application performance, quality, control, visibility, security and reliability for applications hosted in private, hybrid and public clouds. Gain an understanding of how it is possible to achieve network-wide coordinated performance regardless of where applications are hosted.
