Critics have likened cloud computing to flying in an airplane, in that loss of service could be catastrophic to an organization that trusts its data in the cloud. For those who have chosen the cloud computing route for their business, this session will liken cloud implementation to buying a car. Just as a new car purchase requires research and preparation to get the highest quality product at the best price, organizations should do their homework to ensure effective cloud service that delivers high availability and good performance.
The session will start by examining the most common concerns expressed by enterprises when making decisions around cloud computing, including possible downtime and loss of data control. With the risks carefully delineated, we will then outline the steps to the most effective cloud solution possible such as prioritizing services by tiers, establishing recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs), and the important questions to ask regarding data handling and how to negotiate favorable SLAs.

About the Presenter:
Rob Whiteley was previously at Forrester Research as an industry analyst, research director and operation effectiveness leader for the past 10 years.
Technologies never remain in silos; they intermingle with one another to form innovative scenarios that may potentially disrupt existing business models and applications. For example, technologies such as Smart Haptics, 5G Networks, Surgical Robots, Artificial Intelligence and XaaS could combine to generate an innovative business scenario, “Haptic-enabled Remote Robotic Surgeries,” that may possibly disrupt the healthcare industry. For business executives and R&D organizations, these scenarios usher in innovation for their strategic business planning and help them stay ahead in the market. The webinar also discusses some of the key initiatives enabling the convergence of emerging technologies.Read more >
In an inter-connected world where technology has no boundaries, two or more emerging technologies across industries may converge in various scenarios, leading to unexplored applications or business models. For example, technologies like next-generation stem cells, additive manufacturing and nano-coatings may converge to give rise to "personalized cosmeceuticals," which are cosmetics customized based on phenotype and genotype of the user. Unexplored business models like these may become the next disruptive billion-dollar idea for investors, corporate executives and R&D professionals. The webinar will discuss key trends that drive these convergence scenarios and potential market challenges that should be noted while considering these opportunities.Read more >
Movies have created much hype around artificial intelligence, which has distorted the understanding of the technology for people, businesses, and government. Most people picture a dystopian society when they think about artificial intelligence, but the truth is light years away from this notion. In reality, the true capabilities of AI devices don’t meet general expectations. But in the past decade, the industry has witnessed significant development in terms of technology and the skills that are pushing the boundaries of AI capabilities. Newer innovations in machine learning algorithms (deep learning) and computing technologies (neuromorphic or quantum computing) show promise for AI. But is the public or government ready for this future? Are businesses aware of what needs to be done to become AI ready?Read more >

Nepal’s growth story is likely to be shaped by rising urbanization, growing renewable energy development, and greater transport infrastructure development over the next few years. Investors could look to tap into opportunities across sectors such as hydropower and manufacturing, with the government seeking to utilize the significant untapped hydropower potential, and with the development of special economic zones likely to take on greater shape moving ahead. Featuring commentary from the Nepal government, Frost & Sullivan Senior Partners, as well as the private sector in Nepal, this webinar will enable you to gain deeper insights into the future of Nepal, national priorities, investment opportunities, and success stories of local companies as well as multinational corporations.Read more >
Nick Armet, Head of Corporate and Investment Communications, recently recorded a webcast to bring to life a white paper which looks into investing in demographics. This white paper argues the equity market is less efficient at valuing companies benefiting from structural growth, which creates opportunities for long-term investors. We identify three demographic megatrends - population growth, the rise of the emerging market consumer, and the impact of ageing – which, in turn, support a number of structural growth themes that allow identifiable companies to benefit from strong and compounding cash returns over investible timescales. Case studies are used to illustrate and validate the thesis.Read more >
As network data has exploded in volume, velocity and variety, network security and monitoring solutions have been behind the curve in adopting new technologies and approaches to cost-effectively scale and accommodate continuous monitoring in consolidated physical, virtual and cloud based data centers. The network’s increasing speed and rapidly growing megatrends (e.g. virtualization and tunneling protocols), pose challenges for IT network and security professionals trying to manage and secure Financial Services network infrastructure in a more agile and proactive manner.
The IT organization as a whole needs to ensure end-to-end visibility and data access to meet and exceed business, network and application performance SLAs while keeping their infrastructure and data secure against continually evolving advanced and targeted attacks. How does one architect a scalable failsafe security & monitoring architecture to withstand the test of time while ensuring adaptability to evolving business needs?
Attend this webinar to learn how to:
- The value props a Network Packet Broker system could deliver for Financial Services networks
- How to use the security intelligence offered by Next Generation IPS and advanced malware prevention tools in one segment
- How to identify bad actor(s) / suspicious traffic patterns, and then leverage an extensible Network Packet Broker system to not only perform intelligent traffic capture, but also gain intelligence aware security and monitoring controls across the entire network infrastructure
