Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]


  • A movement is underway. Businesses are awakening to a new era of the digital enterprise, requiring companies to find new ways of delivering their services built for the digital era. Success in this new era requires a digital industrialization strategy in which datacenters become the core asset of the business enabling a transformation from an infrastructure that is tightly coupled with the business to a modern infrastructure that enables any business.

    Digital industrialization is a continuous cycle that organizations can use to turn IT infrastructure from a cost into an asset by standardizing on one set of technologies and economics across facilities, hardware, software, and operations; consolidating datacenters; abstracting functionality; automating operations and governing it all to ensure security, integrity, and compliance.

    This presentation will go through why digital industrialization is needed, what the benefits are and how the Ericsson Cloud portfolio facilitates it.
  • L’impatto più evidente della Digital Transformation è quello di portare l’IT delle aziende a diretto contatto con il cliente finale; la qualità del software assume quindi un’importanza sempre più strategica, per garantire ai clienti l’affidabilità degli strumenti utilizzati ed una customer experience efficace.
    E’ per questo che una corretta definizione dei requisiti e dei test book, nonché una efficiente gestione dei dati a supporto dei casi di test, risultano essere aspetti chiave nell’organizzazione dei processi di Quality Assurance.
    Le soluzioni “CA Test Case Optimizer®” e “CA Test Data Manager®” indirizzano puntualmente questi aspetti, guidando in modo determinante l’implementazione del processo di Continuous Testing.

  • The goal of Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) is to lower the operational costs of supporting an organization’s desktops and laptops. A VDI project should make it easier for IT to support users, keep the organization safe from viruses and better protect its data assets. The key to a successful VDI project is user adoption. But while many organizations consider using an All-Flash Array (AFA) to deliver the performance that will lead to user adoption, the problem is AFAs drive up the cost per desktop, increase the vulnerability of the architecture and encourage additional storage silos.

    Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics for an informative webinar that will provide an alternative approach that meets user’s performance expectations while leveraging existing – and often already paid for – storage hardware and does not introduce new silos of storage.
  • As we enter 2016, hyper-converged infrastructure appliances are gaining steam as a means to achieve agile IT resource allocation in software-defined data centers. However, many planners are discovering that fast-deploy server/storage appliances often fall short in terms of hosted VM performance. Perceived application performance is the make-or-break of modern IT service strategy and faster is definitely better. The challenges to achieving stellar application performance in virtualized hyper-converged infrastructure are many, but I/O latency is ultimately the first and often the most important hurdle to overcome. Most solutions offered by storage and hypervisor software vendors fall short of tackling the latency challenge, since doing so really requires more than just memory caching, log structuring or I/O pipelining. What is needed is parallel I/O processing.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to:

    - Obtain up to 300x reduction in latency and up to 15x improvement in data throughput – even with commodity server and storage gear
    - Harness the untapped power of multi-core processors to create a parallel engine for processing I/O
    - Reduce your infrastructure costs while learning more about a hyper-converged solution that achieved $0.08 per SPC-1 IOPS™

    The results have been documented in a just-published report from the Storage Performance Council that should be required reading for any IT planner.

    Join us as industry analyst, Jon Toigo walks through the benchmark results to describe the best performing and lowest cost solution for achieving application performance in the market today.

  • It’s 2016. If you were born after 1980, you probably don’t remember a time without the Internet and the Web. You reach for your smartphone as your go-to device to answer questions, order pizza, find the score of a football game, and check the address of your child’s next soccer game.

    It should come as no surprise, that you reach for your smart phone or use your browser at work to search for an answer when you have a technical issue. The bottom line is that more and more business users are bypassing the service desk and the self-service portal because they believe they can get answers quicker on the web.

    Could this be the beginning of the end for IT Self Service as we know it? Join George Spalding, EVP, Pink Elephant and Jim Blayney, Sr. Product Marketing Mgr. CA Technologies, as they tackle the thorny and divisive issue of whether it’s actually more productive for users to get their own solutions from the web.
  • IT organizations face the challenge of quickly delivery new services for business growth, while ensuring service level agreements are consistently met. The time and effort needed for manual deployment, configuration, monitoring and maintenance all drain the time and energy of IT staff that could be better employed driving innovation. Now imagine that you could build an infrastructure that has the flexibility to quickly provision resources based on the unique requirements of each application. Ideally this would leverage your existing IT investment, reduce the time and effort required by the IT staff, and keep your future options open by avoiding vendor lock-in.

    In this session we will describe how SUSE can help you start your journey toward the software-defined data center with open source technologies like OpenStack, Docker containers and Ceph, all hardened for enterprise operations and backed by outstanding support.
  • What is a WAF (web application firewall) and how can it help defend your AWS workloads?

  • Citrix application infrastructures are very performance sensitive. A small problem anywhere in your infrastructure can quickly lead to frustrated users complaining to the help desk that “Citrix is slow” or “Citrix is not working”. You then have to spend hours finding out where the real problem lies before you can resolve it and restore a positive user experience. Is it really a Citrix issue, or is the issue actually originating somewhere else in the infrastructure – i.e., the network, application, virtual platform, storage, etc.?

    In this webinar, Bala Vaidhinathan, CTO of eG Innovations, will discuss how you can extend Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) to monitor and manage Citrix infrastructures end to end, so when a user complains that Citrix is slow, you can pinpoint exactly where the cause of the problem lies — in just one click.

  • No registration required - Join Storage Switzerland and Cloudistics as we discuss the storage challenges that VDI creates and discuss if All-Flash is the only way to solve those problems.
  • Service Virtualization is all about eliminating the constraints to digital innovation. It gives developers and testers the ability to create simulated software application services of production environments in order to code and test against those services without any dependency or duplication of a production environment. This can be especially beneficial in an Agile development and DevOps environment where speed-to-market is critical in delivering new application features and updates more frequently.

    To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with a CA Service Virtualization implementation, CA Technologies commissioned Forrester Consulting to interview several customers with multiple years of experience using CA Service Virtualization. The results have been published in a new Total Economic Impact (TEI) study that shows how CA Service Virtualization users could realize an NPV of $4.5M, ROI of 292%, and payback period of 3 months over a 3 year period.
