Die Anforderungen an die IT sind klar definiert: Anwendungen sollen schneller, qualitativ hochwertiger und fehlerfrei entwickelt und zur Verfügung gestellt werden. Diese Anforderungen können nur durch eine effektive Integration der IT-Werkzeuge erfüllt werden – auch im Netzwerk.
Ist die heterogene Netzwerkinfrastruktur aufgebaut, muss diese sicher und stabil betrieben werden. Neben dem Fehler- und Verfügbarkeitsmanagement sind auch die Disziplinen Performance- und Traffic-Management, sowie das Konfigurationsmanagement in Kombination mit dem Compliance-Management zur Einhaltung von fremden und eigenen Richtlinien notwendig.
Um die beschriebenen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken, gibt es viele unterschiedliche Werkzeuge. Typischerweise sind diese oft nicht – oder nur mangelhaft – integriert. Dies hat zur Folge, dass die reibungslose Netzwerküberwachung im laufenden Betrieb scheitert, da die Pflege der isolierten bzw. nicht integrierten Systeme sehr arbeitsintensiv ist. Eine oft verfolgte Best-of-Breed-Strategie ist hier also nicht zielführend.
Die Netzwerkmanagement-Lösung von Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), bestehend aus dem Network Node Manager i (NNMi) und dem Network Automation (NA), ist eine vollständig integrierte Softwarelösung, um die heutigen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken und die Arbeitsaufwände zu reduzieren.
Erfahren Sie in unserem kostenfreien Live-Webinar mehr über die Lösung von HPE anhand von konkreten Anwendungsfällen unserer Kunden.
Das Webinar findet in deutscher Sprache statt.
This webinar focuses on the type of complainants that qualify to use Section 337. As the Supreme Court and the Federal Circuit have rendered decisions that make the district courts less attractive for patent litigation by non-practicing entities, their attention has turned to the ITC. There are several cases before the Commission right now that have raised very important questions regarding where the Commission should draw the line for satisfying the so-called Domestic Industry requirement. Panelists will provide an overview of Commission law on this topic, summarize the recent cases and discuss the policy and strategic implications for litigants.
Panelists: Maureen Browne and Ashley Miller, Covington & Burling and Steven Haines, Legal Director, Seagate Technology

Cloud computing gives end-users a utility model for the consumption of IT, such as self-service selection, service desk functions, strong SLAs and pay-as-you-go pricing. However IT shops are having to organise themselves differently to separate these services from the underlying technology.
In this presentation Martin will look at a number of cloud reference architectures, outline new IT roles and how their activities should result in successful delivery of cloud services to users. He will look at enterprise, government and service provider developments as well as SaaS, BPaaS, IaaS and PaaS services.
Data protection, identification, anti-virus intrusion protection and authentification are complex, but well understood, issues in the physical IT world. The increasing use of smart phones and tablets and Cloud services in business are putting them back on the agenda, with new threats added to old. We will look through the FUD to try to identify a priority to address in the new virtualised, Cloud-centric world.Read more >

Join RWS inovia and Managing IP Magazine for a complimentary webinar as we discuss Brexit and implications for the Unitary Patent (UP), the Unitary Patent Court (UPC) and other important patent related issues.
The UP was established with the intent of providing a single European patent covering 26 nations. With the recent vote for Brexit, there is uncertainty as to when and how the UP will come into force. If it does, it may not include the UK, one of the largest economies in Europe.
How will this affect your patent portfolio? Join us for the discussion!
The webinar will be moderated by James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP and will feature Reinhard Ottway, CEO of RWS Group, Gary Smith, former Director of the PCT at WIPO, and Justin Simpson, Founder of inovia as they discuss the following topics:
Following Brexit what are the implications for the UK, Europe, and beyond?
How will this affect your filing and enforcement strategies?
How will this impact the cost of receiving patent protection?
On June 13, 2016, the United States Supreme Court decided that the two-part Seagate test being used to decide whether or not an infringer is subject to enhanced damages was inconsistent with the statutory authority (35 U.S.C. §284) relied on for those claims. How has that decision impacted the District and Federal Circuit Court rulings?

SLC transporter-mediated drug–drug interactions (DDI) can significantly impact the pharmacokinetics and safety profiles of drugs. The regulatory agencies (FDA/EMA) recent guidance documents recommend testing six SLC transporters for potential DDI: OATP1B1, OATP1B3, OAT1, OAT3, OCT1 and OCT2. The 2013 drug transporter white paper published by the International Transporter Consortium (ITC) identified additional drug transporters relevant to drug development, including the Multidrug and Toxin Extrusion SLC transporters: MATE1 and MATE2-K. The webinar will introduce a novel cell-based SLC transporter model system - the recently launched “Corning™ TransportoCells™” - for studying regulatory agency recommended SLC transporters. The new system provides a convenient “thaw and go”, high performing mammalian cell model which supports regulatory agency recommendations for evaluating transporter mediated drug-drug interactions in vitro. In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the product validation and applications for the TransportoCells™ transporter model system. Validation data will also be presented for the newly available MATE1 and MATE2-K Corning™ TransportoCells™.Read more >

Managing IP’s upcoming webinar ‘Effective obviousness arguments in district court and PTAB’, held in association with McAndrews, Held & Malloy, will take place on November 4 at 5:00pm London time (12pm Eastern/11am Central/9am Pacific).
In this webinar speakers will discuss:
•Obviousness: the evolving legal standard and its policy rationale
•What PTAB/district data tells us (does not tell us) about trends in obviousness holdings
•Patent holder tactics to combat obviousness during prosecution and after
•Strategies for challenging and defending a patent with no validity presumption and a broadest reasonable interpretation
•Best practices for petitioners at the PTAB and defendants in litigation
•Practical tips for deploying and combating the objective indicia of non-obviousness
•Robert A. Surrette, President, McAndrews, Held & Malloy
•Mary Elizabeth Mauro, Intellectual Property Counsel, Stryker Corporation
•Michael Loney, Americas editor, Managing IP (moderator)
Managing IP’s next webinar, run in cooperation with Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP, will take place on May 12 at 4pm (eastern standard time); 1pm (pacific standard time) and will discuss ‘Pitfalls in Post-Grant Trials’.
The popularity of USPTO post-grant patent trials have only increased. Whether the PTAB institutes an inter partes review, a post-grant review, or a post-grant validity review of qualified business method patents, each trial has procedural pitfalls with considerable strategic considerations during the Second Phase of the trial (from the institution decision to the final written decision by the Board). This webinar will explore the most common mistakes the third party petitioner or patent owner during the 2nd Phase, with an explanation of key decisions by the PTAB (including those posted on the USPTO microsite) as well as the Federal Circuit. The focus will be on discovery, the patent owner motion to amend, oral hearing, and estoppel.
•Michael Loney, Americas editor, Managing IP (moderator)
•Eugene Perez, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP
•Gerald Murphy, partner, Birch Stewart Kolasch Birch LLP
With post-grant trials becoming increasingly popular, having an in-depths understanding of the pitfalls and challenges is essential for sustaining a strong presence in the market place. The live audience will be able to ask questions of the speakers during the webinar, which will be in English and will last one hour.
This webinar relates to our April 16 discussion focusing on ‘Pitfalls in the first phase of Post Grant Proceedings’. You can listen to it here: https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/327/149005
A lot has been made recently about using big data to gain a competitive edge. Perhaps the most familiar example was made famous in the book and movie Moneyball. The book examined how the budget conscious Oakland A’s manager, Billy Beane, used data to compete with the deep pockets of the New York Yankees and other rich teams. With one of the lowest payrolls in baseball, Beane was able to consistently field a winning team, including a twenty game win streak, the second longest in baseball history.
However, Beane did not create baseball stats. In fact, he used data that teams had been collecting for the previous 75 years. What Beane did was to look at the data in a new way and ask a different set of questions: What stats matter the most to win a game? Which players are the most undervalued?
Some in intellectual property management have begun to look at how data can be used to make their organizations more efficient. This webinar will examine how forward thinking IP organizations can use data to optimize their IP management process. Topics covered will include:
-What questions are important to ask?
-How do organizations go about collecting the data necessary to answer those questions?
-How should organizations use data to optimize their IP process?
Speakers will include:
