The current market environment doesn’t make it easy for advisors to allocate to bonds. Cash offers only negative real returns, credit spreads remain volatile and munis are quite rich after a strong run. Should investors go back to viewing bonds as the ballast within a portfolio instead of always swinging for the fences and chasing yield? Hear Andrew Chorlton's views on the current market and why he thinks investors are better suited with a flexible approach to fixed income; one predicated on longer-term time horizons. Because in today’s environment, the only way you capture the liquidity premium is through time.Read more >

Join the webinar to find out what you should know about Data Protection, how Cloud, IOT and big data impact your information security solutions and to how to keep your data safe.
All regulatory requirements (HIPAA, PCI, etc.) include a mandate for assessing vulnerabilities in systems that manage or store sensitive data. Organizations often opt to conduct vulnerability assessments on an annual, quarterly, or even monthly basis. But while vulnerability assessment tools can identify unpatched or misconfigured code bases, these tools overlook a large portion of an organization’s attack surface: known vulnerabilities in applications that are built in-house. These applications will not have public updates, nor will the thousands of open source components they utilize be included in public disclosures. This is concerning because over 6,000 vulnerabilities in open source projects have been reported since 2014. Register for this webinar to discover how to protect yourself.Read more >

SAM has been touted as a way to mitigate license compliance risk but in actuality the true value lies in its ability to reduce software costs and maximize/optimize your software investment.
Additionally, a critical component of a successful SAM program should also be measured by the value it delivers to others in the organization. The definition of “Others” depends on your organization and can include such areas as finance, Security, Help Desk, IT Service Management, HR, etc. This Webinar will focus on leveraging a structured methodology and a simple algorithm to capture the requirements presented by “others”, how to validate the tool’s ability to deliver on those requirements and how much weight they carry in the final selection ensuring all stakeholders need are met.
Secure clouds don't exist in a vacuum. The very nature of a secure cloud relies on effective standardized, interoperable, and scalable Internet security. As the cloud metaphor displaces the concept of proprietary point-to-point networked servers, the key to its value can be found in the interoperability of service protocols. Securing these connections requires understanding and deploying standards such as TLS HSTS, CT, CSP, DMARC, and FIDO. Each protocol addresses specific security concerns encountered when you extend your security perimeter to include external cloud services. Developing and deploying technologies like these requires a holistic view of the security landscape, and working within a robust Internet security ecosystem.
Key Talking Points:
- Cloud security relies on standardized Internet security protocols.
- Developing Internet security protocols requires multistakeholder involvement.
- Key areas of focus include securing: transport, content, communication, and authentication.
- Case studies presented in developing CT, CSP, DMARC, FIDO, and TLS 1.3
- Internet security is constantly evolving; adapt or perish.
As automation lightens the load on IT operations personnel, and the DevOps cultural shift brings dev and ops together, some ops people are worried about their jobs.
Furthermore, as DevOps takes hold, other roles in the organization are set to transform. DevOps potentially reworks project management methodologies, so what about the project managers? DevOps flattens organizations, so should middle managers be worried?
In this webinar, industry analyst and president of Intellyx Jason Bloomberg will set the stage with some broad observations about the organizational impact DevOps is having across enterprises.
Next, Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst Business Media will join Jason for a thought-provoking, in-depth discussion of how DevOps impacts individual's roles within the organization, with some first-person stories of Hearst Business Media’s DevOps transformation.
You will learn:
- Potential starting points to mapping your own DevOps transformation
- What non-technical groups and roles need to be part of any DevOps initiative – and methods for effective inclusion
- New organizational approaches to structure and collaboration that empower instead of threaten
- How to better manage business changes with DevOps strategies
Die Anforderungen an die IT sind klar definiert: Anwendungen sollen schneller, qualitativ hochwertiger und fehlerfrei entwickelt und zur Verfügung gestellt werden. Diese Anforderungen können nur durch eine effektive Integration der IT-Werkzeuge erfüllt werden – auch im Netzwerk.
Ist die heterogene Netzwerkinfrastruktur aufgebaut, muss diese sicher und stabil betrieben werden. Neben dem Fehler- und Verfügbarkeitsmanagement sind auch die Disziplinen Performance- und Traffic-Management, sowie das Konfigurationsmanagement in Kombination mit dem Compliance-Management zur Einhaltung von fremden und eigenen Richtlinien notwendig.
Um die beschriebenen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken, gibt es viele unterschiedliche Werkzeuge. Typischerweise sind diese oft nicht – oder nur mangelhaft – integriert. Dies hat zur Folge, dass die reibungslose Netzwerküberwachung im laufenden Betrieb scheitert, da die Pflege der isolierten bzw. nicht integrierten Systeme sehr arbeitsintensiv ist. Eine oft verfolgte Best-of-Breed-Strategie ist hier also nicht zielführend.
Die Netzwerkmanagement-Lösung von Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), bestehend aus dem Network Node Manager i (NNMi) und dem Network Automation (NA), ist eine vollständig integrierte Softwarelösung, um die heutigen Netzwerkmanagement-Anforderungen abzudecken und die Arbeitsaufwände zu reduzieren.
Erfahren Sie in unserem kostenfreien Live-Webinar mehr über die Lösung von HPE anhand von konkreten Anwendungsfällen unserer Kunden.
Das Webinar findet in deutscher Sprache statt.

In today’s Application Economy, applications are your new first impression and your customers have high expectations. The quality of a customer’s experience is increasingly defined by the quality of the digital experience delivered to them. That means there are more opportunities to impress, as well as more pressure to provide an optimal experience. As the need to impress customers with a superior digital experience increases, so does the complexity and size of modern application architectures. Application Performance Management can help you deliver optimal digital experiences – but there are key considerations you must make when selecting a solution.
In this webcast, we will explore:
• The key challenges organizations face to deliver optimal digital experiences in an increasingly complex application environment.
• How to best utilize Application Performance Management to increase visibility, decrease risk and reduce complexity.
• Steps any organization can take to evaluate their current state and improve the quality of the digital experience they deliver.
• Kieran Taylor – Sr Director, Product & Solutions Marketing, APM & DevOps, CA Technologies
• Josh Napier – Sr. Principal Product Marketing Manager, CA APM, CA Technologies
In the age where customer experience is becoming a primary mode of competition and markets are being shaken up by digital disruptors such as Uber and AirBnB, traditional organisations are left wondering, how can we compete?
