  • 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.
  • Shift Left: How testing early and often is best for the business and customer
    Shift Left: How testing early and often is best for the business and customer Nancy Gohring 451 Research and Steve Feloney CA Technologies Dec 12 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Organizations in most any industry are feeling increasing pressure to move fast. But at what cost? Some have learned the hard way that skipping crucial processes, like testing, damages performance and impacts customer sentiments on your brand. In this case, the fast time to market becomes meaningless.

    Smart businesses are adapting to a shift left strategy. These teams are learning how to incorporate testing early and often in the release cycle, supporting business requirements to move fast while ensuring high-performing products and quality. But getting there isn’t easy. In this webinar, we’ll cover:

    •Testing tools: tool choice is important. Not all tools have been designed to support this new paradigm.
    •Integrations: to be effective, testing tools must integrate easily with the tools and processes modern teams use, including CI/CD and APM products. Further, these tools must be very easy to use, specifically for developers.
    •Organizational models: shifting left requires changes to traditional organizations and culture. We’ll share insight into the successful models we’ve seen.
  • 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 Daan 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.

    Growth-driven Fintech Start-up Companies Disrupting the Financial Services Market

    New disruptive technologies are set to impact the global banking sector, forcing banks to redefine and transform themselves to survive in today's competitive market. The world's top banks, such as J.P. Morgan and Bank of America, have responded by forming digital transformation strategies to safeguard their existing market and venture into new ones. Fintech companies that began by targeting niche markets are now addressing the needs of a larger audience and directly competing against global banks. They have used technology to expedite the overall process and cut customer onboarding from a few days to a few minutes. While banks are open to working with Fintech companies, not all Fintech companies want to work with banks; they want to address customer pain points and deliver top-notch services and products at a fraction of the cost charged by banks and traditional financial services companies.
