Join the Makeover Monday community for a live webinar to discuss selected data visualizations from this week's submissions.
You can participate in the webinar, ask questions but also submit a viz ahead of time for review (do this on https://data.world/makeovermonday by submitting your visualization in the Viz Review discussion for this week's dataset).
VIZ REVIEW is our way to provide much more comprehensive feedback for everyone, which is always difficult within the limitations of Twitter and short-form comments in general.

Are events the new API? Event driven systems provide some unique properties, particularly for microservice architectures, as they can be used both for notification as well as for state transfer. This lets systems run in a broad range of use cases that cross geographies, clouds and devices.
In this talk we will look at what event driven systems are; how they provide a unique contract for services to communicate and share data and how stream processing tools can be used to simplify the interaction between different services, be them closely coupled or largely disconnected.

Microservices are a great architectural approach with many benefits when done right. However, microservices alone are by far not enough to succeed in the API Economy.
We argue that the inner and outer aspects of an IT infrastructure need to be constructed in a way so that microservices can be exploited and lead to the desired business benefits.
In this talk we introduce the concept of Agile Integration as an approach to build an inner and outer infrastructure. This concept is based on three pillars: distributed connectors, containers and APIs.

File vs. Block vs. Object Storage
When it comes to storage, a byte is a byte is a byte, isn’t it?
One of the enduring truths about simplicity is that scale makes everything hard, and with that comes complexity. And when we’re not processing the data, how do we store it and access it?
The only way to manage large quantities of data is to make it addressable in larger pieces, above the byte level. For that, we’ve designed sets of data management protocols that help us do several things: address large lumps of data by some kind of name or handle, organize it for storage on external storage devices with different characteristics, and provide protocols that allow us to programmatically write and read it.
In this webcast, we'll compare three types of data access: file, block and object storage, and the access methods that support them. Each has its own use cases, and advantages and disadvantages; each provides simple to sophisticated data management; and each makes different demands on storage devices and programming technologies.
Perhaps you’re comfortable with block and file, but are interested in investigating the more recent class of object storage and access. Perhaps you’re happy with your understanding of objects, but would really like to understand files better, and what advantages or disadvantages they have compared to each other. Or perhaps you want to understand how file, block and object are implemented on the underlying storage systems – and how one can be made to look like the other, depending on how the storage is accessed. Join us as we discuss and debate:
oHow different types of storage drive different management & access solutions
oWhere everything is in fixed-size chunks
oSCSI and SCSI-based protocols, and how FC and iSCSI fit in
oWhen everything is a stream of bytes
oNFS and SMB
oWhen everything is a blob
oHTTP, key value and RESTful interfaces
oWhen files, blocks and objects collide

The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) was enacted in 1977 making it illegal to make payments to foreign government officials for the purpose of obtaining or keeping business. The anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA require maintenance of accurate books and records as well as an adequate system of internal controls. Please join this webinar to gain an overview of the FCPA, discuss recent enforcement trends throughout the years, and understand how the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) considers a company’s existing compliance program when assessing penalties. The webinar will cover common methodologies and frameworks for identifying possible gaps in existing compliance programs, common pitfalls and considerations when assessing and remediating anti-bribery and anti-corruption compliance gaps, highlighting areas where internal audit practitioners can contribute to a company's anti-corruption monitoring efforts.Read more >

Organizations looking to deploy database applications, like Cassandra, Postgres and Couchbase, need persistent storage so if the instance fails data survives. Many storage vendors are jumping on the “containers” bandwagon, but the level of support and understanding of the true need varies.
Join experts from Datera, Portworx, StorageOS, Storage Switzerland, Virtuozzo and WekaIO for a roundtable discussion on “The State of Persistent Storage for Containers.” In this webinar we will discuss why persistent storage for containers are still needed, what are today’s use cases for it and what the future holds.
Register now to join us for the live roundtable event on April 17th at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT
In an increasingly fast-paced marketplace, businesses are under pressure to accelerate time-to-market for products and services. Companies need technologies that support agility and flexibility when it comes to getting products out the door quickly, and packaged and priced at a point that customers want to consume.

1. How to transform business with the introduction of new pricing models and product offerings
2. Why prioritizing an investment in cloud-based usage and activity billing is key
3. How to launch a successful digital transformation strategy throughout your organization
It is no secret that containers have entered mainstream and are here to stay. Every IT organization is exploring the use of containers. It is easy to make the case for using containers for new applications, especially the ones designed with a microservices architecture.
The benefits of containerizing microservices applications are immediate and well understood. But what about the hundreds or sometimes thousands of applications that enterprise IT teams are already supporting. Shouldn’t they get some ‘container’ love? Can ‘containerizing’ these applications ‘modernize’ them, extending their useful life? If your applications are running fine, does it even make sense to bother containerizing them all?
In this webinar, we answer these questions and discuss a simple framework to decide if you will benefit by containerizing your applications. For organizations interested in adopting containers, we will look at how they can successfully deliver a container-as-a-service to operate and manage these containerized applications.
