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.

Register now to walk away with Rob’s four key strategies for today’s megatrends and a framework for intelligent performance management that can help you accelerate business success.
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.
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

The greatest obstacle to growth and potential market entry into Africa is the lack of infrastructure development. The major hubs to trade in East and West Africa, Kenya and Nigeria, are the key to successful development of the region. Future infrastructure development in Kenya and Nigeria may be a key determining factor in any company's African geographic expansion strategy if choosing between the lucrative markets of East and West Africa.Read more >
