AWS has grown at a phenomenal rate since 2006 and released a total of 722 new features and services, just in the last year – how does one keep up you may wonder? Well, AWS re:Invent – the world’s largest AWS gathering – is a great starting point but of course, it’s about much more than feature releases – how do you figure out what is relevant to your business? How do you assess whether your business is ready to effectively use AWS? How do you take what is available and deploy it to your own benefit?
In this webinar we discuss both the hottest ins and outs as well as the most thought provoking perspectives that came out of this years' re:Invent. Our Hyperscaler Practice Lead, Mark Duhm and Hyperscaler Services Product Manager, Rob Selby, will be covering a number of topics:
- Key updates & announcements (and their relevance in today's marketplace)
- The 'so what' to AWS strategy & roadmap updates
- Relevant perspectives around AWS in a Hybrid Cloud world, Security and Migration

When D2L first moved to the cloud, we were concerned about being locked-in to one cloud provider. We were compelled to explore the opportunities of the cloud, so we overcame our perceived risk, and turned it into an opportunity by self-rolling tools and avoiding AWS native services. In this session, you learn how D2L tried to bypass the lock but eventually embraced it and opened the cage. Avoiding AWS native tooling and pure lifts of enterprise architecture caused a drastic inflation of costs. Learn how we shifted away from a self-rolled "lift" into an efficient and effective "shift" while prioritizing cost, client safety, AND speed of development. Learn from D2L's successes and missteps, and convert your own enterprise systems into the cloud both through native cloud births and enterprise conversions. This session discusses D2L’s use of Amazon EC2 (with a guest appearance by Reserved Instances), Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon EBS, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon S3, AWS CloudFormation, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon CloudFront, AWS Marketplace, Amazon Route 53, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, and Amazon ElastiCache.Read more >

As incumbent enterprises move to the cloud, questions arise how transform the legacy IT culture to maximize the agility and flexibility AWS provides. Speed and dexterity must be implemented in a consistent manner, minimizing the impact to the organizational structure, but taking into account the existing skill sets and knowledge base. With AWS Service Catalog, you can manage commonly deployed AWS CloudFormation template versions, enable controlled self-provisioning, and leverage those same products in your automated deployment pipelines to AWS. In this session, developers, operations leads, architects, and IT managers learn how to leverage AWS Service Catalog and AWS CloudFormation to transform IT culture to maximize the agility, flexibility, and value that the AWS platform provides. Additionally, John Wiley & Sons, a 200-year-old enterprise, demonstrates how AWS Professional Services helped them balance the velocity achieved by moving to AWS with a structured governance model to deploy their cloud infrastructure and application code.Read more >
OK, so you have your SaaS application up and running on AWS and now the real fun begins. The adoption of SaaS and a shared multi-tenant infrastructure brings with it a unique set of challenges that require developers to find new and creative ways to optimize their SaaS applications. For many engineers, this means tackling a whole new realm of questions. How do you optimize tenant experience by tiers? How do you perform real-time performance tuning or centralized tenant policy management? How do you collect and aggregate tenant analytics? How do you implement scalable policy-driven configuration of tenant experience?
These and many other challenging topics will be covered in this technical deep dive. Tod Golding, an AWS Solutions Architect specializing in helping AWS partners build SaaS systems, will explore a collection of strategies that can be leveraged to increase the performance, flexibility, and agility of SaaS environments. You will learn how to identify areas where services, tools, and design strategies can be combined to enrich the agility of your SaaS architecture.

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:
Mark Bullard, VP Product Management, Lecorpio
Jared Engstrom, Senior Patent Attorney, Red Hat

Typical disaster recovery plans leverage backup and/or replication to move data out of the primary data center and to a secondary site. Historically, the secondary site is another data center that the organization maintains. But now, companies are looking to the cloud to become a secondary site, leveraging it as a backup target and even a place to start their applications in the event of a failure. The problem with this approach is that it merely simulates a legacy design and presents some significant recovery challenges.
Join Storage Switzerland and ClearSky Data for a live webinar to discuss how organizations might be able to re-invent disaster recovery using the cloud.
The cloud's promise of on-demand functionality for a lower cost has arrived to business applications. The use of Microsoft Office 365 across the globe is growing rapidly, with a clear value proposition to re-invent productivity for organizations of all sizes. But the transition to the cloud is not without challenges. Office 365 offers concerns in terms of privacy, compliance and security which can be addressed through the use of end-to-end encryption for all e-mails and files sent to Office 365. Join HPE and (ISC)2 on August 4, 2016 at 1:00PM Eastern for an examination of the steps for an Office 365 migration, security and privacy concerns for the cloud environment and how to achieve end-to-end encryption.Read more >
