In the age where customer experience is becoming a primary mode of competition and markets are being shaken up by digital disruptors such as Uber and AirBnB, traditional organisations are left wondering, how can we compete? Do they look to scrap their legacy systems and start again, or find a way to integrate these systems with new digital applications?
Join our webinar, where we will discuss what today’s customers are looking for when they interact with a company, what does good customer experience look like and how can you differentiate? We will explore the key considerations when building your roadmap to digital business transformation; highlighting that this is a journey, not a destination.
Secure clouds don't exist in a vacuum. The very nature of a secure cloud relies on effective standardized, interoperable, and scalable Internet security. As the cloud metaphor displaces the concept of proprietary point-to-point networked servers, the key to its value can be found in the interoperability of service protocols. Securing these connections requires understanding and deploying standards such as TLS HSTS, CT, CSP, DMARC, and FIDO. Each protocol addresses specific security concerns encountered when you extend your security perimeter to include external cloud services. Developing and deploying technologies like these requires a holistic view of the security landscape, and working within a robust Internet security ecosystem.
Key Talking Points:
- Cloud security relies on standardized Internet security protocols.
- Developing Internet security protocols requires multistakeholder involvement.
- Key areas of focus include securing: transport, content, communication, and authentication.
- Case studies presented in developing CT, CSP, DMARC, FIDO, and TLS 1.3
- Internet security is constantly evolving; adapt or perish.

Most of the main tax season deadlines have come and gone. It’s now time to collect your notes and start preparing your review to internal stakeholders. How do you compile this information and present this data in a clear manner that will help drive process improvements for next year?
Sovos is presenting a complimentary webinar that addresses these concerns that will be hosted by Wendy Walker who has over 15 years of reporting and compliance experience, including organizations like Zions Bancorporation and Chase.
Why are season reviews so powerful?
1. Creates alignment and more efficient communication with all the people, departments, and vendors involved with year-end processing.
2. Improves the overall process by bringing visibility to the impact tax reporting processes can have when they go well and when they don’t.
3. Creates better risk management (with penalties increasing twice this year) by facilitating valuable discussions and feedback needed to improve the accuracy of data, meet state and federal deadlines, and identify shortfalls and limitations of current systems and processes.
This webinar will discuss six ways to help your review make a difference.
•Document the details!
•Decide when to conduct the review.
•Determine who should attend the season review.
•Set ground rules for the meeting in advance.
•Set basic questions to use as a guideline for discussion.
•Share and build on the results of the lessons learned.
Wendy Walker is an experienced tax information reporting professional with over 15 years of reporting and compliance experience. In her former roles at Zions Bancorporation and Chase, she managed compliance and operations functions (and teams) associated with US withholding tax and 1099, 1042-S, and state reporting. Additionally, Wendy was the FATCA Reporting Officer at Zions, responsible for researching and advising the various lines of business of their obligations.
As automation lightens the load on IT operations personnel, and the DevOps cultural shift brings dev and ops together, some ops people are worried about their jobs.
Furthermore, as DevOps takes hold, other roles in the organization are set to transform. DevOps potentially reworks project management methodologies, so what about the project managers? DevOps flattens organizations, so should middle managers be worried?
In this webinar, industry analyst and president of Intellyx Jason Bloomberg will set the stage with some broad observations about the organizational impact DevOps is having across enterprises.
Next, Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst Business Media will join Jason for a thought-provoking, in-depth discussion of how DevOps impacts individual's roles within the organization, with some first-person stories of Hearst Business Media’s DevOps transformation.
You will learn:
- Potential starting points to mapping your own DevOps transformation
- What non-technical groups and roles need to be part of any DevOps initiative – and methods for effective inclusion
- New organizational approaches to structure and collaboration that empower instead of threaten
- How to better manage business changes with DevOps strategies

Azure HyperCloud: Cost Reduction, Increased Agility and Improved ScalabilityRead more >
Optimizing manufacturing processes ultimately revolves around increasing output at reduced cost and improved quality. Manufacturers try to minimize inventory levels by scheduling just-in-time delivery of raw materials, but even the smallest miscalculation can cause stock-outs that lead to production delays. Sensors and RFID tags can capture supply chain data, but this creates a large, ongoing flow of data. Hadoop can cost-effectively store this unstructured data, providing manufacturers with greater visibility into their supply chain history, and greater insight into longer term supply chain patterns. This gives manufacturers more lead time to adjust to supply chain disruptions, as well as helps reduce costs and improve margins on finished products.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Hortonworks have a strategic partnership to help manufacturers realize their modern data architecture. Join us for this webinar and learn how Hortonworks leading enterprise-ready open data platform in combination with HPE’s leadership position in the worldwide x86 server market provides manufacturing organizations with proven solutions to help transform manufacturing processes.

Traditionally, when people talk about data protection, they’re talking about some form of backup. However, if those backups effectively end up in a “write-only memory”, they’re not much good. So really, the bottom line is recovery is what people are most concerned about when they talk about data protection. With the degree to which today’s technologies have been refined and the plethora of data protection platforms available, users should maintain a baseline set of simple expectations to be met no matter who or what they choose for the job. In this presentation, Taneja Group and Dave LeClair of Unitrends will discuss the “New Rules for Recovery” that everyone’s solution should adhere to.Read more >

The current market environment doesn’t make it easy for advisors to allocate to bonds. Cash offers only negative real returns, credit spreads remain volatile and munis are quite rich after a strong run. Should investors go back to viewing bonds as the ballast within a portfolio instead of always swinging for the fences and chasing yield? Hear Andrew Chorlton's views on the current market and why he thinks investors are better suited with a flexible approach to fixed income; one predicated on longer-term time horizons. Because in today’s environment, the only way you capture the liquidity premium is through time.Read more >
