    • Not managed to go to Las Vegas this year to attend AWS re:Invent? Worry not, we are consolidating a week’s worth of presentations and announcements into just 30 mins of your time… Come join us to see how we have coped with this challenge!

      Duration: 30 mins + Q&A

      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:

    • AWS re:Invent 2016: Case Study: Busting the Myth of Vendor Lock-In: D2
      AWS re:Invent 2016: Case Study: Busting the Myth of Vendor Lock-In: D2 Stephen S. Skrzydlo and Stan Przychodzki Recorded: May 10 2017 10:45 am UTC 47 mins
    • 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.

    • [LIVE: AWS re:Invent 2016 ] Enabling DevOps for an ENT with AWS Service Catalog
      [LIVE: AWS re:Invent 2016 ] Enabling DevOps for an ENT with AWS Service Catalog Shahbaz Adam, Mahdi Sajjadpour (AWS); Peter Marney (John Wiley & Sons) Recorded: Dec 13 2016 2:20 pm UTC 50 mins
    • 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.

    • [LIVE Presentation: AWS re:Invent 2016] Optimizing SaaS Solutions for AWS
      [LIVE Presentation: AWS re:Invent 2016] Optimizing SaaS Solutions for AWS Tod Golding, AWS Solutions Architect Recorded: Dec 13 2016 2:00 pm UTC 54 mins
    • 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.

    • IPnomics: Using Data to Re-Invent Your IP Management
      IPnomics: Using Data to Re-Invent Your IP Management James Nurton (MIP), Mark Bullard (Lecorpio), Jared Engstrom (Red Hat) Recorded: Mar 31 2015 5:00 pm UTC 73 mins
    • 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

    • 5 things IP and R&D teams should never hide from each other
      5 things IP and R&D teams should never hide from each other Laura Schoppe at Fuentek | Hosted by Ruta Sudmantaite at patsnap.com Recorded: Aug 9 2017 3:00 pm UTC 43 mins
    • In many organisations, there is a widening gap in the communication between these departments; R&D may invent something with the intention of filing a patent only to find out later from the IP department of pre-existing IP which renders their research (and costs) effectively wasted.

      Here at PatSnap, our clients often tell us that the two teams can no longer work independently, so we thought we'd explore how to improve communication between the two divisions.

      We will be joined by Laura Schoppe an industry expert from the world of R&D and IP, and get her insight into the five most important things the two teams should never hide from each other.

      This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leader, across any division looking to improve cross team collaboration and flexibility.

    • Enterprise Service Management is Finally a Business Reality
      Enterprise Service Management is Finally a Business Reality Stephen Mann, independent ITSM blogger, writer and presenter Recorded: Nov 18 2015 2:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • IT didn’t invent service management. Nor is IT the only corporate service provider that can benefit from service management or, for that matter, IT service management (ITSM). The reality is that other corporate service providers such as HR, facilities, and legal have similar operational and service management requirements to IT. For example in dealing with employee issues, requests for services and information, and changes. And, as such, these other business functions can also benefit from proven ITSM best practices and capabilities, such as ticketing, workflow and automation, knowledge management, and self-service – to improve efficiency and to deliver a better customer experience. This non-IT use of ITSM is now commonly called “enterprise service management” and, after over a decade of low-profile adoption, it has finally risen up the corporate improvement agenda to become one of the hottest ITSM and business improvement trends of 2015 and beyond.

      Attend this webinar to:

      - Understand the issues common across corporate service providers such as IT, HR, and facilities, and how enterprise service management can help.
      - Appreciate what enterprise service management entails and how ITSM technology can be reimagined and leveraged to support other business functions.
      - Receive practical tips on how to best start out, plan, deploy, and succeed with enterprise service management.

    • Does IT as we know it even have a future?
      Does IT as we know it even have a future? George Spalding of Pink Elephant & Rob Stroud of CA Technologies Recorded: Jun 30 2015 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Technology disrupts business and re-invents itself almost by the minute, yet Service Managers fall back on tradition to support the brand new stuff.

      Whether your organization is in the middle of your second ITIL implementation that is failing again or you are counting on DevOps to solve the problems of continuous innovation, or you are scrambling to control cybersecurity issues and mitigate data risk, it is abundantly clear the role of the service manager must change and change now.

      This session lays out the current state of service management in today’s IT-powered businesses and explores the challenges we face as the business demands greater agility and more rapid-time-to-market from IT.

      Failure to meet these challenges could have dire consequences.
