A lot of people have said many things about Service Catalogue. But what is the reality? Has the Service Catalogue, as defined by ITIL V3 in 2007, been able to keep up with the demanding, highly tech-savvy, consumerized workforce? As a leading Service Catalogue tool vendor, we see these realities first hand… and we believe the ITIL V3 Service Catalogue is nearing its end!
This may sound strange coming from a Service Catalogue vendor, but we have seen a definitive shift in focus and we feel this is a game changer. So join Biomni’s CEO Angus Gregory and ITSM commentator Rob England (aka @TheITSkeptic) for a lively debate on what the world’s leading IT organizations are actually implementing and the business value that they are driving for IT and the businesses they support.
Virtual Reality puts you on the other side of the computer screen, but it isn’t all about games. VR has the ability to enable individuals, bring them together and invoke true empathy and feelings. This technology has the potential to change people’s lives for the better.
Join us for an informative discussion of the power of Social VR.
Ryan A Bell talks about the beginning of content creation in VR, how it fits into social and a very powerful case study of one nonprofit utilizing the empathy machine to reach the masses. Rob Crasco talks about the power of virtual worlds to empower people, bring them together and create true connections across the globe.
With a record number of visitors at this year’s IP EXPO Europe, there was quite a hubbub of activity spread across the six IT events at the Excel, London.

Implementing data driven marketing techniques and methodologies is the dream of many advanced, forward thinking marketing pioneers. Attempting to tackle big data sets to perform sophisticated analyses that power data driven marketing can be very daunting. But why are so many businesses investing in data driven marketing? What is it they are trying to achieve?
In this webinar we will discuss the reasons why organisations see data driven marketing as the future for their businesses. We will examine what they are using it to achieve and how they are achieving it. In addition we will look at what companies need to successfully implement data driven marketing techniques and methodologies for their businesses and, discuss real-world examples of organisations who have done it.
The session will be hosted by John Sweeney, Sales and Marketing Director at Qbase, with panelists including Francesca Hose-Berte, Business Development and Marketing Consultant at Apteco, and Rob Jones, Head of Delivery at Qbase, who will field questions and share their knowledge and expertise with attendees.
Concept, task, and reference have served well as archetypes in technical publications, but are there others needed to serve the needs of the enterprise? Explore various techniques employed in learning theory and cognitive research that can extend the utility of DITA beyond technical publications. Learn how authors can focus on better content reuse.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Rob Hanna of Precision Content for this free, one-hour webinar where attendees will learn to work with Precision Content® information types, focus on writing blocks rather than topics, and apply rigor to titles and short descriptions.
Please also join us for the first webinar in this series on July 21 (recorded after that date) — The Cognitive Science Behind Intelligent Content. Check out the Content Wrangler channel to sign up by July 21 to watch live, or you may watch the recording after July 21.
Explore the science that makes for effective topic-based authoring with DITA. Semantic specialization should be a leading differentiator for selecting DITA for projects, yet it is one of its most underutilized features. Information Typing is truly at the heart of DITA, yet it is one of the most poorly understood concepts behind creating effective DITA topics. Content reuse is cited as a primary reason for moving to DITA, yet it is one of the hardest features to deliver expected gains in reliability, efficiency, and consistency over time.
Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and Rob Hanna of Precision Content, for this free, one-hour webinar where attendees will learn to look at concept, task, and reference in a new light, see the value in effective semantics, and consider new guidelines for writing for reuse.
We also hope you will join us for a follow-on webinar with Rob Hanna on August 18 — Advancing the Science Behind Intelligent Content. Check out the Content Wrangler channel to sign up!
Traditionally spinning hard disk has been used for cost sensitive applications. Now with the introduction of big data and unstructured applications, such as web 2.0 and video surveillance, it’s difficult to sustain high bandwidth and performance at scale.
Over the past few years, Flash has been used to augment spinning disk for low latency, high performance applications, but density and economics have not allowed it to be deployed throughout the datacenter.
What if you were able to introduce a multi-tiered flash architecture with the primary tier being performance-optimized and the secondary tier being bandwidth-optimized, all at their highest economical level?
Join Roark Hilomen, SanDisk Engineering Fellow and Rob Commins, Tegile VP of Marketing, to learn how to achieve high performance and bandwidth for these next-gen application workloads in a multi-tiered flash architecture.
Using transactional data shared by over 500 UK retail brands, the 2016 Home Shopping Trends Report created by Epsilon Abacus gives a comprehensive view of consumer spending patterns across the multi-channel retail sector in 2015 compared to prior year.

Most modern malware operates as part of a system. Whether it’s a multi-part kill chain with droppers and payloads, a botnet with command and control servers, or ransomware encrypting files, the malware on the compromised system talks to other systems over the internet.
If you have been compromised, and didn’t catch malware on the way in, you can often find it by monitoring outbound network connections.
In this webinar, Randy Franklin Smith, Windows Security Subject Matter Expert, and Rob McGovern, Sr. Technical Product Manager at LogRhythm, discuss the top 8 things to analyze in outbound connections from your network to the Internet.
The duo also shows you how Network Monitor tools can help you improve your network analysis and forensics capabilities.
Join this webcast to learn how monitoring your network can help you detect and investigate potential malicious behavior within your IT environment.

93% of respondents to the 2016 Citrix Performance Survey see Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop as two of the most performance sensitive technologies in use in enterprise networks today. Slow logins, frequent session disconnects and slow screen refreshes are just some of common complaints that Citrix administrators have to deal with these days. Furthermore, often when a user complains that their desktop is slow or an application is slow to launch, the issue is not in the Citrix tiers – but instead in the network, the virtualization platform, or storage tiers. End-to-end visibility, root-cause diagnosis and proactive alerting are therefore key requirements for Citrix administrators.
Join us for this webinar, ‘Choosing a Citrix Monitoring Strategy: Key Capabilities and Pitfalls to Avoid‘, where Citrix Certified Expert Rob Beekmans, Senior Consultant with PQR, a Citrix Platinum Advisor, and Srinivas Ramanathan, CEO of eG Innovations, will discuss the key requirements of effective Citrix performance monitoring as well as common pitfalls you need to avoid.
