Many studies have been done on the benefits of Predictive Analytics on customer engagement in order to change customer behaviour. However, the side less romanticized is the benefit to IT operations as it is sometimes difficult to turn the focus from direct revenue impacting gain to the more indirect revenue gains that can come from optimization and pro-active issue resolution.
I will be speaking, from an application operations engineers perspective, on the benefits to the business of using Predictive Analytics to optimize applications.

While some organizations remain unresponsive to the transitions in their employees’ lives, smart companies understand that proactively supporting employees through important life events is not just compassionate, it’s good business. More and more high-profile companies such as Google, Netflix, Adobe, and Microsoft are offering extended paid maternity and paternity leave as a talent attraction and retention tool. Having family-friendly benefits and policies is a start, but it is not enough. The most positive impact on organizational outcomes occurs when leaders foster a supportive work-life culture.
In this signature research conducted in partnership between Kindercare Education and HCI, we explore how organizations are supporting working parents before, during, and after their leave for a birth or an adoption. Based on a research study of almost 300 U.S. organizations, you will learn:
Benchmarks and future plans for family-friendly benefits and policies, including paid leave
How effective these work-life offerings are at attracting talent and preventing turnover
How HR functions can help working parents assimilate back into workforce regardless of the amount of leave taken
All registrants will receive a copy of the research report.
Today, businesses harnessing data must navigate a wide variety of technologies—from data warehouses, Hadoop tools, and even web applications to cloud, on-premise, and hybrid deployments. Learn from an analysis of more than 1 million data connections to see how 4,000+ Tableau customers are building infrastructure to store, capture, and analyze their data.
Tune in to learn:
- From Amazon Redshift to Microsoft SQL Server to Google Analytics: what data sources are taking over, and which are falling off the map
- Cloud, on-premise, or both? Where companies actually store their data, and why hybrid approaches matter now more than ever
- Where the world of data used for analysis is headed in 2017
With the continued explosion of digital and data-centric technologies, a rich stream of customer data is increasingly available to today’s marketers – and a company’s first-party data is undoubtedly a growing source of competitive advantage. But the opportunity to generate deeper customer insights and understanding with that data comes with the expectation of a connection or interaction that goes beyond the transactional.
During this interactive discussion, Adam Corey - VP of Marketing at Tealium - will explore how data has become the new 'value exchange' between brands and consumers, and how to leverage that data to generate business value while maintaining consumer trust and loyalty. He'll share:
- the pivotal moments of data capture that brands should focus on (or steer away from)
- the key differences between a transactional vs. emotional data exchange
- the core principles of a successful data-driven approach
- the critical elements of a comprehensive data security/ privacy practice
We hope you'll join us.
Applications - the lifeblood of modern business - can be in a sorry state of affairs given today's forced alignment with server, OS, and storage boundaries. This can not only cause deployment delays and complexity, but it also results in underutilized hardware and inflated operational costs. There is a drive to embrace new technologies and methodologies in the enterprise, but this presents significant challenges. Limited application-awareness at the infrastructure level makes it nearly impossible to deliver on the promised SLAs and the tight coupling of applications and underlying operating software (OS or hypervisors) compromises application portability as well as developer productivity.
A growing number of enterprises are turning to application containers to support more efficient and effective development and deployment in an application-centric IT paradigm. By abstracting applications from the underlying infrastructure, containers can simplify application deployment, and enable seamless portability across machines and clouds. Containers can also enable significant cost savings by consolidating multiple applications per machine without compromising performance or predictability. Join us to learn more about container adoption in the enterprise and how a container-based server and storage virtualization environment can help take your software-defined datacenter transformation to the next level of an application-defined datacenter.

Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
Join us on July 19th to learn:
•Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
•Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
•Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
•How the CDMI standard works
•Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
•Benefits for end user companies
More and more the Service Desk is becoming the focal point of our IT function - if we get this right the business loves us but if we get it wrong ...
The Service Desk has evolved over the last 20 years from being a “nice to have” to a critical support function to the business. Nowadays it’s the normal expectation that there will be someone at the end of the phone / email / portal 24/7 to answer any technical related question we may have, be that a request for equipment to fixing email that is not working etc.
How can we get this right? Join Luci Allen, Head of Operations at Pink Elephant EMEA, as she guides us through the many faces of the Service Desk and gives advice and guidance on just how to get it right.
