We may now have reached a watershed in global central bank policy co-ordination. It remains to be seen whether the Federal Reserve will be able to leave interest rates at a level which, while appropriate for the global backdrop, may be increasingly inappropriate for the domestic US economy. In our latest webconference, Alan Cauberghs will explore whether the current uneasy truce between central banks and markets will persist and the implications for fixed income investors.Read more >

Gartner predicts that “analytics will be pervasive … for decisions and actions across the business.” Sounds like analytics nirvana with instant access for any analysis you want to do, in other words self-service BI. Is this dream or reality?
Join this webinar to find out how clouds like AWS or Azure are moving the industry close to this nirvana today through simple assembly of cloud services combined with the appropriate consumption model of these services.
We will demonstrate how easy it is to provision your high end SAP HANA Database right next to your BI Analytics tier.
Maybe we are closer to this nirvana than you think?
TimeLine™ provides full transactional data journaling (continuous data protection), cloning, and full or incremental snapshots without any additional object data copies or interruption to ongoing workloads. This feature can be automated to copy volumes according to a schedule and restore them to a point-in-time copy through the UI, CLI, or REST API. Hourly, daily, weekly, and monthly per-volume snapshots can be scheduled, with appropriate retention times for each snapshot. Snapshots can be created and deleted via the XDI interface and volumes can be cloned and exposed at any point in time without interrupting workloads on those volumes.Read more >
As employee-owned devices become the norm in the workplace, organizations without the appropriate security infrastructure lose control and visibility over corporate data accessed from these devices. Enabling secure BYOD has thus become one of the greatest challenges facing IT leaders.
Mobile device management (MDM), seen by many as cumbersome and invasive, have struggled to see meaningful adoption among employees. Instead, enterprises are turning to data-centric security, capable of contextual access controls and real-time DLP. In this webinar, we discuss the trends driving growth in demand for BYOD, the drawbacks of MDM, and some of alternative solutions used to secure employee-owned devices without agents.
While enterprises are running digital initiative at varying levels of scale and maturity but not all of them succeed.

We are entering rapidly changing times in the storage arena leading to major transformations of traditional SAN based storage environments.
This webinar will discuss three tactics you can deploy to define an appropriate service framework for the delivery of storage services within your business and allow you to effectively evaluate the technology offerings and operational models now available.
When a disruptive technology emerges, it is often met with skepticism. A good case in point is ForeScout CounterACT®. It’s gaining a lot of traction in cybersecurity circles, with more than 2,000 large and medium enterprises and government agencies worldwide using the product as of April 2016. But for those IT professionals who might think its capabilities are too good to be true, ForeScout enlisted Miercom, a leading independent testing and consultancy, to provide unbiased, hands-on testing of CounterACT capabilities. Miercom’s findings are what this webinar is all about.
Please join us as Miercom President and CEO Rob Smithers talks about his lab’s findings with regard to CounterACT’s:
• Visibility (discovery, classification and compliance assessment) of network-connected corporate, BYOD, guest and IoT endpoints without use of agents or previous device knowledge
• Detection and full classification of hundreds of endpoints in seconds
• Policy-based control of devices by enabling IT staff to grant the appropriate level of network access to people, applications and devices
• Ability to integrate with leading network infrastructure and endpoint protection technologies
Project Management can mean different things to different people, depending upon the kind of work they do. In that context, it becomes very important to select the right tool for the job at hand.
Microsoft Office 365 suite has many products that enable project management and collaboration at various levels of maturity of organizations. Project Online, Office 365, SharePoint Online, and Planner each give a different set of capabilities to the users. It is extremely important to select the right tool for the right work, to help maximum productivity and efficiency.
This session will cover each of these products and discuss when these tools are appropriate and what can and cannot be achieved with them.
Cost vs. quality: It’s a perennial issue in technical service and support. Drive your costs too low, and you risk sacrificing the quality of service. Conversely, if you push quality too high (yes, that’s possible!), then you drive your costs through the roof. Understanding the cost/quality tradeoff is the most critical step toward optimizing your support model.
Using data from more than 300 benchmarks worldwide, Jeff Rumburg will illustrate how top-performing service and support organizations strike an appropriate balance between the cost of service delivery and the quality of support provided. He’ll share simple yet powerful techniques that will enable organizations to pinpoint their position on the cost vs. quality curve, determine if higher (or lower) quality is justified, reduce costs without sacrificing quality, and improve quality without increasing costs.
Finally, he’ll share an interactive scorecard that organizations can use to determine whether service and support has been optimized, and, if it hasn’t, to identify the tangible steps needed to achieve an optimized support model.
