  • Best Practices for Legacy Archive Migration
    Best Practices for Legacy Archive Migration Robert Desteno, CEO, Archive360 & Bill Tolson, Actiance Dec 6 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Since the late 1990’s, corporate email archives have become a necessity for many organizations, especially for those in regulated industries or those faced with ongoing eDiscovery requirements.

    Email archives were seen as the only workable solution to capture, secure, manage and make searchable, those emails and attachments that government agencies requested or the courts demanded through eDiscovery requests.

    Prior to 2010, stand-alone, on-premise email archives were the go-to solution to ensure regulatory compliance and reduce eDiscovery risk. Cloud-based email archiving solutions were later introduced and have experienced phenomenal growth over the last several years. The adoption of cloud-based email archives has raised the question: Should you migrate your existing on-premise email archive data to the cloud, and if yes, what’s the best way to do it successfully?

    To answer this and other questions, Join Robert Desteno, CEO from Archive360 and Bill Tolson from Actiance as they explore this and other topics including:

    •The advantages of migrating to a cloud archive
    •Steps to consider before beginning the migration process
    •Best practices to ensure a successful migration

  • Transforming the Digital Customer Experience
    Transforming the Digital Customer Experience Danny Johnson Director of Strategic Enterprise Networks, Verizon Enterprise Solutions Product Marketing Dec 7 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Digital transformation. It’s disrupting every industry and impacting how you deliver a great customer experience. Companies that ignore it risk their very survival; but those that embrace it can dramatically improve customer satisfaction and drive greater value. The truth is, keeping up with bandwidth demands and continuing innovation, while transitioning from manual processes to end-to-end digital processes, is extremely difficult on their own. Plus your customers have an expectation of your brand to be available 24x7 and deliver at any time of the day or night that they desire.

    Join our live webinar and learn:
    · Why digital transformation will only be successful if you begin with the customer in mind.
    · What digital technologies are being used by top companies to maximize customer satisfaction and drive revenues.
    · How to define the best approach to transforming the customer experience for your industry/organization.

  • From Supervision to Surveillance
    From Supervision to Surveillance Mitch Atkins, Founder and Principal at FirstMark Regulatory Solutions Dec 7 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Is your day spent plowing through endless piles of messages, while policy violations may lie hidden in your data? How can you make daily review easier while – at the same time – ensure you are addressing topics that are of greatest interest to regulators?

    Today, compliance officers of financial services firms are challenged by information like never before. Data volume is doubling every 18 months and new forms of electronic communication emerge regularly, making supervisory review workloads untenable. At the same time, SEC/FINRA/IIROC regulatory scrutiny over supervisory compliance practices has never been higher, with stiff regulatory fines appearing in the news almost daily. Clearly, conducting review of today’s communications with tools designed 10+ years ago for email is not sustainable.

    Join us and our special guest, Mitch Atkins, founder and Principal at FirstMark Regulatory Solutions, for a discussion of the issues impacting supervisory review, and how firms can re-focus efforts on the identification and mitigation of complex compliance risk. In this webcast you’ll learn:

    •Common compliance risks faced by broker-dealers and their impact on FINRA priorities in 2016;
    •How the growth of non-email is impacting compliance review;
    •Emerging best practices in managing review volumes and conducting compliance surveillance
  • What the New Network Paradigm Will Be: Outcome-Driven Networking and SD-WAN
    What the New Network Paradigm Will Be: Outcome-Driven Networking and SD-WAN Bob Laliberte, Sr. Analyst, ESG and Rachna Srivastava, Sr. Director Product Marketing, VeloCloud Dec 7 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Legacy network procedures and processes are traditionally focused on the individual steps required to implement change and initiate actions. Even with the automation of various steps within the process, there remains much investment of time and human resources to manually configure every activity.

    But as networks increase in complexity, especially with the transition to cloud-based applications and services, throwing manpower at the problem, is not scalable. Instead, organizations are adopting Cloud-DelIviered SD-WAN and as an extension, outcome-driven networking. With outcome-driven networking, organizations determine the outcome they need to deliver and allow the network intelligence and automation SD-WAN provides to revolutionize their IT teams and their businesses.

    In this webinar, ESG senior analyst, Bob Laliberte, introduces outcome-driven networking and why it is changing the network world, including:
    • Challenges faced by networks
    • The components of a robust outcome-driven networking approach
    • Key benefits to deploying an outcome-driven SD-WAN
    • ROI on implementing outcome-driven networking
  • Best Practices for Migrating to Office 365
    Best Practices for Migrating to Office 365 Robert Cruz, Senior Director of Information Governance, Actiance & Justin Frech, Systems Engineer, VerQu Dec 12 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Prior to 2010, email messaging and archiving technologies were primarily deployed behind the firewall, with accompanying investments in storage, hardware, infrastructure, and IT resources. Since then, employee communications volume and variety have continued to explode –along with the cost and management hassle. Unfortunately, this time period has also witnessed an explosion of users utilizing their own devices, unsanctioned communications channels, and personal storage locations to get their jobs done.

    Now, as messaging systems move to Office 365 many are asking: Is the move to Office 365 also the right time to gain control over other employee communications channels, and if yes, what’s the best way to do it successfully?

    To answer this and other questions, join Actiance and VerQu as we explore:

    •Best practices in moving employee communications to Office 365
    •Steps to consider before beginning the migration process
    •How to assess regulatory compliance and eDiscovery implications when migrating to Office 365

    We will conclude with a discussion of how Actiance can help organizations harness Office365, while gaining control over the latest communication channels to ensure that companies meet regulatory compliance and eDiscovery demands.
  • A Customer Story - A WAN Strategy that Unifies the Enterprise and Enables Growth
    A Customer Story - A WAN Strategy that Unifies the Enterprise and Enables Growth Dan Muizer, Stolt-Nielsen & Ferran van den Berg, Videns Dec 13 2017 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    With offices in 30+ countries, a de-centralized network infrastructure, and a company-wide migration to cloud applications, the existing mix of MPLS and internet across sites was hugely limiting to Stolt-Nielsen’s future growth strategies.

    Of major importance was moving to a platform that connected Stolt-Nielsen’s entire network to the same applications no matter where offices were located, guaranteeing that those applications were always accessible, and provided a high-quality experience for all users.
    Stolt-Nielsen was using Office365, Skype for Business, and file replication across the entire organization and wanted every user to have the same experience regardless of location. Stolt-Nielsen turned to VeloCloud Managed Service Provider, Videns, to re-think its network strategy and transform the WAN.

    In this webinar, Stolt-Nielsen and Videns discuss the benefits they were looking to achieve, what the alternative solution evaluation process looked like, and the results attained with a new infrastructure.

  • Osterman Research Report: Assessing the Total Cost of Veritas Enterprise Vault
    Osterman Research Report: Assessing the Total Cost of Veritas Enterprise Vault Michael Osterman, Osterman Research Dec 13 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Many organizations are evaluating cloud-based archiving solutions by performing comparative cost analyses against legacy on-premises systems. However, constructing a true comparative analysis can be difficult because the software, hardware, storage, and infrastructure costs of on-premises systems are often distributed across multiple IT cost centers or are simply difficult to estimate.

    Join Actiance and Michael Osterman of Osterman Research as we discuss the results of an Osterman survey on the actual costs of maintaining and operating a Veritas Enterprise Vault environment versus a cloud-based archiving solution.

    During this webinar, you will learn about:

    – Real world cost experiences in managing on-premise archives

    – How the survey results have led to the development of a TCO model to help you determine your own cost comparison

    – How the Actiance Platform offers a significantly lower cost of ownership while providing an architecture to support your archiving needs

  • Challenges and Opportunities in Workflow Automation for the Modern Workforce
    Challenges and Opportunities in Workflow Automation for the Modern Workforce Chris Marsh, 451 Research Director | Ryan Duguid, Nintex SVP of Technology Strategy Jan 11 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Designing and managing complex, specific and even specialist work is no longer only the remit of centralized teams of specialist project managers, analysts and process experts. Companies are looking for looser, more matrixed, decentralized and collaborative forms of organization, they are reconsidering processes, people and technology as part of this shift with a focus increasingly on enabling these types of work to be done by business leaders and their teams.

    Unfortunately the traditional mix of collaboration, team, task, project and business process management tools are struggling to deliver the balance of cohesive, flexible and extensible work processes business teams need.

    They need a way of building automated processes that span across different systems and applications so that their myriad tactical workflows can be elevated into a strategic mesh of operations, giving them new ways to think about organizational culture, business agility, employee engagement, work throughput and customer satisfaction.

    In this webinar Chris Marsh, Director of Workforce Productivity and Compliance at 451 Research and Ryan Duguid, SVP of Technology Strategy at Nintex will discuss the trends, pain points and opportunities around content and workflow automation for the modern workforce.
