  • Three Steps to Eliminating Storage Silos
    Three Steps to Eliminating Storage Silos Storage Switzerland, Nexsan Recorded: Nov 16 2017 51 mins
    As an organization grows the number of use cases the data center needs to support increases with it. What starts out as a NAS for file sharing, moves to a SAN for database applications, and then storage for data protection. As the organization hits full stride it might look at arching to limit growth and a mobility solution to support a distributed workforce. The problem is each one of these storage types are silo’ed and have to be implemented, operated and maintained separately. As a result, storage ends up consuming a large chunk of the IT budget.
  • Why you need to stop copying data forever.
    Why you need to stop copying data forever. Marc Keating, Director of Technology & Alliance Strategy; Darren Miller, Manager of Engineering Test & Performance Recorded: Nov 16 2017 56 mins
    Whether you keep your enterprise data in the cloud, on-prem or in a hybrid environment, chances are, you’re making more copies than you’d like to.
    Of course, you must meet data protection requirements. Unfortunately, what sounds like a two-step process – store the data and back it up – often multiplies into many more steps with many more copies. And every time you duplicate your data, you increase your costs.

    In this webcast, we’ll look at why this is and what your options are to stop copying data and start accessing it.

  • Get Total Visibility into Microsoft IT Services through a Single Pane of Glass
    Get Total Visibility into Microsoft IT Services through a Single Pane of Glass John Worthington, Product Management Director, eG Innovations Recorded: Nov 15 2017 49 mins
    Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) allows system and application administrators to monitor operations, services, devices and applications within an enterprise through a single console. This single pane of glass can simplify operations, but monitoring the performance of end-to-end digital business services requires more than aggregating measurement data using multiple management packs.

    From a performance management perspective, unified monitoring is most effective when there’s a single source of actionable truth; it moves us away from diagnosis-related activities and toward collaborating on how to establish self-healing properties when that diagnosis is identified. Not only is this more cost-effective, it’s a more “unifying” activity than troubleshooting.

    A single pane of glass without an understanding of end-to-end IT service dependencies may just lead to more alert fatigue-- little actionable information due to lack of effective correlation and root cause diagnosis. The results are long problem isolation and diagnosis cycles, resulting in poor user experience and increased IT operation costs.

    Join us for this webinar as John Worthington, Director of Product Marketing at eG Innovations, demonstrates how you can achieve end-to-end performance monitoring of Microsoft IT services such as SharePoint, Exchange or custom .Net applications--even if those IT services incorporate non-Microsoft components or cloud services—and unify Microsoft SCOM at the same time.

  • Tackling the f-word: The smarter approach to ad fraud
    Tackling the f-word: The smarter approach to ad fraud Emily Storino, Network Strategy Lead, Electronic Arts (EA) Recorded: Nov 15 2017 61 mins
    Ad fraud isn’t becoming more prevalent -- the fraudsters are just getting slicker. From bot nets to device ID spoofing, the tricks are getting more sophisticated, and raking in more and more cash for the swindlers.

    Staying ahead of the fraudster’s learning curve is the key — and collaboration is the crucial element. While vendors and advertisers are directly impacted by fraud, tracking partners provide the technology to help fight fraud – all three players have to work together to circle the wagons.

    Making a game plan can be complex, when there are no clear benchmarks for defining or measuring fraud, as each player defines it differently and different benchmarks are needed for each app type, geo, traffic source, and so on.

    Join this VB Live event to learn how to tackle that complexity, how to define benchmarks, detect and manage fraud, and work with your partners to circle the wagons against the fraudsters.

    Register for free!

    You’ll learn:
    * Who the stakeholders are, plus why and how is each is affected
    * The MMPs’ role in this ecosystem
    * What fraud is and what benchmarks should be used for defining it
    * How to collaborate to detect and manage fraud on an ongoing basis
    * What tools are out there to fight fraud

    Enterprises generally have a significant portfolio of legacy applications running in production; applications that have been developed 10-15 years ago or more. These applications stand in the critical path of revenue generation. It's not easy to just rip them out and replace them all with applications built on modern architectures, such as microservices and containers. Businesses can't afford downtime and certainly aren't willing to pay for something they can't see. We need the ability to modernize legacy applications while allowing IT to continue to deliver value—innovating from inside out. Verizon evaluated Red Hat's OpenShift Container Platform to modernize their application portfolio.

    In this session, we'll present Verizon’s journey to containerize one of their most challenging applications. We'll show the results of a 2-month long proof-of-concept, including successes, misses, and a roadmap for application modernization.

    Beyond the Data Lake: Self-service Marketplaces on the rise Matt Aslett, Research Director, Data Platforms & Analytics, 451 Research Paul Barth, CEO, Podium Data Nov 30 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The idea of the data lake was alluring; the means to having data at your fingertips, filtered, profiled, secure and business-ready for data consumers to rapidly derive higher-levels of business value. However, this widely adopted concept didn’t come with an instruction manual.
    The past few years have been turbulent times for enterprise data and analytics. In this live discussion, the presenters look beyond the lake, discussing the combination of self-service data preparation and data management and governance as one; a truly functional data marketplace or “data bazaar”. In addition, they will touch on other key enablers fueling the adoption of the self-service marketplace, including;
    •Data as a service,
    •Smart data ingestion – validation/profiling,
    •Smart data cataloging/search,
    •Data governance,
    •Machine-learning-driven recommendations,
    •Data collaboration.

    As 2018 approaches, the era of multi-cloud has arrived. With virtually all the tech leaders and innovators offering robust cloud solutions, there have never been more options for organizations looking to move workloads to the cloud. That makes it easier than ever for companies to avoid vendor lock-in and provision the exact services they want, from whomever they want.

    In this webcast, we’ll discuss how application concerns, cost savings and security will make 2018 the year of multi-cloud and what it will mean for enterprises.

    Monitor with Discipline – 2018 IT Predictions Kong Yang, Head Geek of Virtualization & Cloud Practice, SolarWinds Dec 6 2017 4:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Change is coming fast and furious. And in the eye of the storm are applications. I’ve seen entire IT departments go into scramble drills to see if they possessed the necessary personnel and talent to bridge the gap as their organizations embraced digital transformation. And by digital transformation, I mean the ubiquitous app or service that can be consumed from anywhere on any device at any given time. For organizations, it’s all about making money all the time from every possible engagement. Remove the barrier to consume and make the organization more money is what digital transformation is all about. So what will happen in 2018?

    In this session, I will discuss my top three IT predictions for 2018 and discuss how IT professionals can remain valuable in their IT careers in the face of continuous integration and continuous delivery.

    · What are my top three 2018 predictions?
    · What skills do I need to remain relevant?
