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.

Are your data governance efforts delivering real business outcomes? Are you prepared for new regulations, such as GDPR?
Data-driven disruptors understand that unleashing data assets to power any business outcome is tied to Data Governance. Data governance and intelligent disruption go hand-in-hand. That’s because disruptive change mandates that data is accessible, trusted, and secure. Ad-hoc and tactical approaches only add complexity and cost with minimal business value.
Join this track to learn from data experts who will help you to prepare for your own data-driven digital transformation. You’ll hear:
• Why you need a foundation to ensure collaborative, trusted and scalable data governance that meets changing regulatory requirements, including how to support your GDPR journey.
• How to operationalize core data governance processes that enable an effective holistic data governance competency that drives tangible business value for your organization.
• About the tools to manage and govern your data effectively and enable people, policies, and processes that truly makes it possible for your data to become a strategic business asset.

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

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.
The growth of cloud - hosted web applications has been accompanied by increasingly sophisticated security attacks and risks that threaten enterprise data. As a result, administrators and security teams face challenges keeping up to date on the latest attacks and protection measures. At the same time, they must meet the stringent compliance requirements for online commerce and data sharing across traditional and cloud environments. Organizations must choose between employing specialized IT security teams in-house - resulting in higher expenses and increased time to deploy policies - or delegating the complex WAF policy management and compliance to a cloud service to drive efficiencies.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How application vulnerabilities are evolving
- The benefits of cloud-based managed and on-premises WAF
- How to bolster your defenses and ensure mitigation consistency through a “Managed Service” model
- Don't leave your application or your organization vulnerable
There will also be a demonstration of our customer portal.

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.
