    • Mastering your currency risk management
      Mastering your currency risk management Marc Tuehl, Nobby Clark and Nic Jones, HSBC; Brendan Maton, IPE Recorded: May 16 2017 2:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • Currency volatility can have a significant impact on the risk /return profile of a diversified investment portfolio. Inefficiencies in implementing and managing a currency hedging strategy on a cyclical basis could also result in negative impacts.

      Measuring exposure to foreign currencies, monitoring any changes and managing this risk on a continuous basis raises various considerations. Not only do you need to define your investment and risk objectives, but also to consider operational risks, cost constraints and regulatory compliance. It is equally important to know the market and assess risk and opportunities specific to the global foreign exchange market.
      Our currency experts can help you find the right balance between risk and return, guide you on how to establish a robust currency management programme and how to manage related costs in an efficient manner.

      At HSBC, we can help you address these challenges with an innovative and tailored approach to outsourcing currency hedging activities. This allows financial institutions, both asset managers and institutional investors, to focus on core investment activities.

      It is time to re-think your currency management strategy. Find out more - http://www.gbm.hsbc.com/solutions/markets/fx-currency-management

    • Mobile Trends in Universal RUM Solutions
      Mobile Trends in Universal RUM Solutions Nic Jansma - Senior Software Engineer & Lauren Younger - Dir. Product Management, mPulse and Data Science Workbench Recorded: Aug 9 2016 6:00 pm UTC 34 mins
    • With global web usage converting from desktop to a variety of screen sizes, most organizations have embraced responsive web design as a key part of their product strategy. As a result, stakeholders are making decisions to implement technical solutions across various platforms and form factors.

      There's a huge body of research demonstrating that page load time has a significant impact on business metrics ranging from conversions and revenue to user satisfaction and retention. Because of this, organizations are adopting a variety of solutions -- including single-page application (SPA) and Google Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) frameworks -- to deliver better, faster mobile experiences for their users. To effectively measure and correlate performance to business metrics, organizations are employing Real User Monitoring (RUM) solutions coupled with SPA and AMP support.

      This webinar will explore SPA and AMP frameworks in modern applications, and will show you best practices about how to monitor them in RUM, enabling you to understand and optimize performance across all form factors and to increase conversions and revenue.

      You will learn about:
      - Market outlook on mobile development and frameworks
      - AMP framework
      - Common SPA frameworks, including AngularJS, Backbone.js, Ember.js, and React
      - Universal RUM
      - Ability to monitor modern framework applications in RUM
      - Performance issue solutions across any platform or form factor

    • Analytics for a World of 8 Billion
      Analytics for a World of 8 Billion Nic Covey, United Nations Relationship, Project 8 | Najam S. Mohiuddin, Accenture | Anna Rosenman, Salesforce Recorded: Jun 25 2015 4:30 pm UTC 40 mins
    • Description: As we plan for a world of 8 billion people and beyond, our knowledge of future human needs is surprisingly disparate. Project 8 was created by The UN Foundation and The Demand Institute in order to help the UN System and other public and private sector organizations anticipate and plan for future human needs.

      With the support of Salesforce and Accenture, Project 8 is building a digital platform that will bring together researchers and practitioners to share, compare and discuss data and insights on the evolution of human demand. Using Salesforce Wave, researchers will make their insights more visible and useful to the rest of us and improve our collective ability to meet human needs globally.

      Join us to learn about Project 8, and how Salesforce Wave can empower everyone in your organization to get insight.

    • The latest release of the Data Plane Development Kit is 2.2, which was completed in December 2015 and is available for download from dpdk.org (http://dpdk.org/browse/dpdk/tag/?id=v2.2.0).

      This webinar describes the new features that are included in DPDK 2.2, including major changes such as:
      • A new cryptodev API supporting both hardware and software acceleration for crypto
      • A performance thread sample application comparing the performance of different threading approaches
      • Support for the ARMv7 and ARMv8 architectures
      • A sample application for an IEEE1588 PTP client
      • Improved NIC support, including support for Mellanox, Liberouter and Netronome NICs, and enhancements for both I40E and FM10K

      The webinar will also outline planned contributions from Intel to the next DPDK release, 16.04 (formerly referred to as 2.3), which is due to be completed in April 2016.

    • Employment taxes risk for the NHS
      Employment taxes risk for the NHS Gary Saunders, Senior Manager, PricewaterhouseCoopers Recorded: Oct 13 2014 1:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • The employment tax status of workers can be difficult to establish. Where non compliance with the tax legislation arises, it is the NHS organisation, not the worker, that is exposed to additional PAYE and National Insurance Contributions ("NIC") as well as statutory interest and penalties. With increased HMRC activity in this area and the financial as well as the reputational risk non compliance brings, this session will look to share some of the areas PwC is seeing in practice as concern to HM Revenue & Customs ("HMRC"). This will include individuals engaged as self-employed, as office holders, through Personal Service Companies and agencies. The session will also look at the interaction with the additional HM Treasury annual requirements for reporting off payroll payments.

    • OpenStack & Optimized Hardware: Avoid Problems That Can Stop Deployment
      OpenStack & Optimized Hardware: Avoid Problems That Can Stop Deployment Carl Brooks, 451 Research // Russ Lindsay, StackVelocity // Greg Elkinbard, Mirantis Recorded: Apr 30 2014 3:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • Frictionless access to information makes everyone think they can do this at home. But, in fact, deploying OpenStack on optimized hardware presents a hatful of challenges that your infrastructure team might not have thought about.

      In this session, we'll look at a range of challenges that can stop your project before it makes it to deployment. The session is divided into two topics that we’ll dive into:

      (a) Introduction to scalability techniques: clouds from a hardware perspective.
      Building a large cloud is more than just throwing hardware into a hall and lighting it up. Network, storage, compute and scaling strategies must be designed in from the beginning. In the current state of the art of OpenStack, some decisions are easy to unwind later on and some are impossible. This portion of the presentation will focus on describing the steps you need to execute to build a successful cloud and which decisions you can push off to later.

      (b) The second section of the session will focus on strategies to simplify the optimized hardware experience. If you’re assembling racks on onsite, you need a plan to deal with everything from cabling and airflow to the NIC firmware and drivers. Each of these details can delay your project and run up costs. We’ll also look at the trend toward scalable rack-level units that are factory integrated and tested.

      Attendees will also learn about some of the simple things that are obvious with enterprise hardware but can be challenging in any optimized hardware environment. Examples include power on/off, power monitoring, system health/event monitoring, remote console access.

      You'll leave this session armed with practical knowledge about running OpenStack on Open Compute and other optimized hardware.
