IT Teams are being overwhelmed by the increasing complexity of the networks they’re required to manage. Not only do they have too much to do, they paradoxically also have too many tools with which to try to do it! Yet there are a number of clear similarities found amongst the IT teams that are most productive and most effective. Ipswitch and Enterprise Management Associates both surveyed IT teams worldwide to find out how the best IT teams were able to cope.
The webinar will present our findings and answer key questions such as:
•What are the emerging challenges facing IT professionals?
•How are these challenges impacting their business and their end-users?
•How do the most productive IT teams address increasingly complex networks?
•Why are additional management tools and outsourced management counterproductive?
Data shows that increasing network complexity doesn’t have to degrade the effectiveness of IT teams or the businesses they support. Join this webinar to find out how the high-performing IT professionals manage this – and learn what not to do as well!
This session will be presented by Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Network Management Analyst for Enterprise Management Associates as well as Mark Towler, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Ipswitch.

Too often security has been hampered by complexity and incomprehensibility. What people don't understand they mistrust and when they become inconvenienced they look for alternatives or switch off. This webinar will explain the workings of complex security solutions in simple terms. It will help unravel the complexities and show how simple yet comprehensive, all-inclusive security systems are the key to a working solution!Read more >
Attend this webinar to learn how HPE’s application retirement solution can help reduce the overall recurring cost of managing legacy PeopleSoft instances by up to 40%.
The costs of licensing, operational, and skilled resources in maintaining legacy PeopleSoft environments can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. In addition to these costs, organizations expose themselves to various security and privacy risks associated with the improper management of employee data stored in these inactive systems.
With HPE’s application retirement and archiving solution, you can retire multiple PeopleSoft instances while retaining seamless access to the historical data for compliance and reporting. Built on HPE’s market leading Structured Data Manager platform that relocates inactive data from expensive tier 1 production systems and legacy databases while preserving data integrity and access, you can be confident that the solution is scalable, flexible and secure.
Join us to hear more about how HPE Structured Data Manager for PeopleSoft Enterprise can help you simplify the retirement of legacy PeopleSoft instances and reduce the cost, complexity and risks associated with managing legacy applications and data.
As organizations move to virtual data centers and multi-cloud environments in a dangerous threat climate, they are faced with new security challenges they must overcome. But, they must do this without exponentially increasing the manpower, products, or resources they need, so they still get the most of their valuable security budgets. These challenges include:
-Improving visibility inside data centers and cloud
-Reducing the attack surface
-Maintaining regulatory compliance standards.
WHAT'S IN THIS WEBINAR:
vArmour will explore trends in data center security that include the rise of software to replace firewalls inside the data center, segmentation and micro-segmentation as security techniques, and shifting ideas about software defined networking that:
-Eliminate under-utilized zones and choke points
-Avoid costly hardware refresh cycles and on-going maintenance
-Lower the time it takes to see and stop threats
-Reduce the time and complexity to process security changes
-Increase speed of secure application delivery

The microservices software architecture is the industry’s latest answer to providing customers with a seamless, high quality omnichannel experience. Thirty percent of companies are already delivering software via microservices, and 75% see them as being “very important” or “critical” to the future of their businesses.
Designed to make software more “transportable” across multiple devices and platforms—including web, mobile, and wearables—this approach promises to deliver an optimal customer experience regardless of how, when, or where a customer chooses to engage with a business.
However with this proliferation of platforms and devices, understanding the customer experience becomes more difficult. Highly interconnected and interactive, microservices architectures require a new level of customer centricity to alleviate complexity, reduce support costs, and ensure a high quality end user experience.
Listen to leading IT analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and CA Technologies to learn:
- What new challenges IT will encounter in deploying, monitoring, and managing microservices in omnichannel environments
- How to reduce complexity and understand the impact of change when monitoring applications using microservices architectures
- How to monitor your entire omnichannel stack with a single application performance management (APM) solution.
Data environments are growing exponentially. Not only is there more data, but there are more data sources. At the same time, the value of unlocking that data and using it to make business decisions is also increasing.
For the business user, understanding this complex data and unlocking its potential is the key to staying ahead of the competition.
For IT organizations, complex data can be the bane of many business analytics programs, causing all kinds of trouble in data management and hindering system performance.
Size of data and number of disparate data sources are two key drivers of complexity. The bigger the data, the more effort needed to query and store it. The more data sources (data tables) the more effort that is needed to prepare the data for analysis.
The data complexity matrix describes data from both of these standpoints. Your data may be Simple, Diversified, Big, or Complex. When considering a Business Analytics program, different approaches are better suited for each data state.

Join us to learn:
- The pitfalls to avoid when deploying Big Data infrastructure
- Real-world examples of multi-tenant Hadoop implementations
- How to achieve the simplicity and agility of Hadoop-as-a-Service – but on-premises
Gain insights and best practices for your Big Data deployment. Find out why data locality is no longer required for Hadoop; discover the benefits of scaling compute and storage independently. And more.
Web application security is threatened not just by hackers but also by the complexity (and related cost) of keeping up with security challenges. Due to the ever-increasing strategic and financial importance of e-commerce and other web services, web application security is of paramount importance for nearly every organization. The difficulties of web application security are compounded by the growing complexity of web applications, the nearly constant changes in site content and the increasing sophistication of web application attacks. Add in migration to cloud-based and hosted environments and the cost of application security can start to become unmanageable.
Join this webinar as Trustwave discusses 4 approaches to reduce cost and complexity. Trustwave has helped hundreds of organizations adopt these approaches and secure their web applications with a solution offering advanced capabilities (continuous learning mode, bi-directional analysis, etc.), flexible architecture, and multiple delivery options to simplify your operations.
Every event has unique communication and staffing requirements. From vendors, staging, security, food service, volunteers, staff – coordinating people and schedules is deceivingly complex.
Large events are a logistical challenge that requires the participation of hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of individuals. How can you reduce human error? How can you improve staff or volunteer communication and onboarding? How can you reduce the chaos of last-minute logistical updates, and “game day” communications?
Benefit from insights we’ve gained through working with hundreds of large event clients including Burning Man, SXSW, and SIFF.
This previously recorded webinar is available on demand.
