  • 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 Recorded: Dec 13 2017 57 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

  • 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 Recorded: Dec 13 2017 61 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.
  • 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 Recorded: Dec 12 2017 50 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.
  • 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 Recorded: Dec 12 2017 40 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.

  • 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 Recorded: Dec 7 2017 53 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
  • From Supervision to Surveillance
    From Supervision to Surveillance Mitch Atkins, Founder and Principal at FirstMark Regulatory Solutions Recorded: Dec 7 2017 58 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
  • Transforming the Digital Customer Experience
    Transforming the Digital Customer Experience Danny Johnson Director of Strategic Enterprise Networks, Verizon Enterprise Solutions Product Marketing Recorded: Dec 7 2017 53 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.

  • Best Practices for Legacy Archive Migration
    Best Practices for Legacy Archive Migration Robert Desteno, CEO, Archive360 & Bill Tolson, Actiance Recorded: Dec 6 2017 59 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
  • The Practical Execution of Security in the Enterprise
    The Practical Execution of Security in the Enterprise Gee Rittenhouse, SVP Security Business Group, Cisco; Mike Iwanoff, SVP/CISO/CIO, iconectiv Recorded: Dec 5 2017 28 mins
    As more of our business data will exist in the cloud and as the scale of IoT creates more weak links in the security chain, what systems in the network are designed securely that CIOs and CSOs can leverage? And will a lack of industry standards and technology architecture around the IoT makes it difficult to create security policies? Also, why do some contend that the IoT is impossible to secure?

    On this edition of NMGs podcast series, we invite Gee Rittenhouse, Senior Vice President, Security Business Group at Cisco and Mike Iwanoff, SVP/CISO/CIO at iconectiv.

    Key takeaways for listeners:

    a.Fraudsters are out in full force: Yesterday’s solution might not solve tomorrow’s problems/challenges

    b.Tips and Info: Top three things I can do to get more info/more data and improve my posture in this area
    •Threat Modeling
    •Risk Assessment
    •Risk Framework

    c.Determine whether you have the technology requirements for an acceptable risk posture:
    •Multi-cloud security
    •segmentation of the network
    •automation – allowing you to implement controls to recover from a threat, find the source and mitigate the threat from reoccurring.

    d.Communicate that risk posture to exec team and to the board - At the end, the company should know what their risks are and what
    they are willing to accept

    e.Understand the challenge and know that you don’t have to build your own security solutions.
