Businesses must participate in the API economy; creating an ecosystem and partnerships are essential in order to capture business of the future. Creating this agility requires changing people, processes, and technology in order to capture these often fleeting business moments. The challenge is to balance both the current environments and architectures, while creating the next generation of application architectures. These often painful changes can be approached in many ways, which we will outline along with the technology and methodology to ensure success.
Join this webcast to learn:
- The latest thinking around microservices and miniservices
- How to measure and manage the application lifecycle (with a drill down into monitoring and visibility)
- Enterprise challenges when balancing existing systems and new capabilities
Demand for new apps keeps increasing, but integration challenges often slow the development process to a crawl. Developers are often left waiting for external teams to integrate with expanding numbers of disparate data sources and implement a variety of authentication schemes. Meanwhile, end users of mobile, web or chat don’t care about enterprise information architecture—they just want a seamless, connected experience.
The Progress Kinvey platform helps developers deliver the experiences that customers demand faster using the tools and frameworks they already trust, while also:
- Simplifying integration by providing a layer of abstraction for data virtualization
- Providing enterprise authentication
- Delivering mobile-specific features such as notifications and offline data access
- Allowing developers want to use their standard and open frameworks and tools without having to learn a new or proprietary development stack
Join us as we explore tackling complex data integrations for modern enterprise apps.

Transitioning to a microservices architecture?
As microservices become an evermore mission-critical component of your enterprise architecture, there are a few challenges that will become increasingly salient. The need for scalability, high performance, and flexibility will make you think about APIs differently.
In this webinar, Aaron Miller and Cooper Marcus discuss the peculiar challenges of microservices architectures. They also demonstrate how Kong meets these challenges by being lightweight, super fast, and infrastructure agnostic.
To lead in the digital economy, innovative businesses need agile enterprise architecture. Instead of simply connecting isolated, siloed processes, companies must develop practices that are focused on solving bigger problems. To do so, they need an enterprise architect who understands business strategies and how to create IT infrastructures to support them.

Streaming and real-time data has high business value, but that value can rapidly decay if not processed quickly. If the value of the data is not realized in a certain window of time, its value is lost and the decision or action that was needed as a result never occurs. Streaming data – whether from sensors, devices, applications, or events – needs special attention because a sudden price change, a critical threshold met, a sensor reading changing rapidly, or a blip in a log file can all be of immense value, but only if the alert is in time.
In this webinar, we will review the landscape of streaming data and message queueing technology and introduce and demonstrate a method for an organization to assess and benchmark—for their own current and future uses and workloads—the technologies currently available. We will also reveal the results of our own execution of the OpenMessaging benchmark on workloads for two of the platforms: Apache Kafka and Apache Pulsar.
What Will Be Discussed:
•The Evolution of Queuing, Messaging, and Streaming
•Today’s Technology Landscape
•Assessing Performance: The OpenMessaging Benchmark
•Considerations for Your Evaluation

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents an enormous opportunity for technology vendors. But selling IoT outcomes – in particular into industries that have deep industrial or operational technology (OT) roots – is a fundamental departure from the traditional IT sale.
Vendors face a more complex solution sale that goes beyond the usual IT buyer and involves multiple stakeholders that sit at the crossroads of IT, OT and strategic business agendas. For the first time ever, 451 Research launched a Voice of the Enterprise (VoTE) IoT: OT Stakeholder Perspective survey in addition to the quarterly VotE IoT: survey of IT decision-makers. Together, these two surveys provide complementary insights and guidance into the IT and OT view of enterprise IoT deployments, budgets, spending, technology priorities, vendor choices and more.
Join 451 Research’s Rich Karpinski, Research Director for Voice of the Enterprise – IoT, to see highlights from this first-ever VotE IoT: OT Stakeholder Perspective survey and learn about:
•How to best work with OT and IT buyers
•The key OT-heavy verticals driving industrial IoT, including manufacturing, utilities, transportation, oil and gas and smart cities
•How to target the very specific OT-centric use cases that are driving IoT deployments and spending in those verticals today – and in the future
•How to position IoT products and services effectively with OT decision-makers – what they want and need from both their IT- and OT-centric vendors
•Where and how OT and IT are collaborating most effectively on IoT – and where and why they are in active conflict (and how you can help)

Cloud Security for Dummies, Enterprise Mobility Edition
As more mission-critical business workflows move to the cloud, yesterday’s security protocols and measures have become inadequate. And as cybersecurity threats increase, protecting business resources from compromised mobile endpoints is no longer a “nice to have” but a “must have” for the digital enterprise. More than half of all enterprise cloud app activities now occur over mobile devices with enterprise mobility at the epicenter and crossroad of business productivity and cybersecurity challenges.
Join VMware AirWatch Director of Enterprise Mobility, Christopher Campbell and Netskope authors of Cloud Security for Dummies, Steve Malmskog and Lebin Cheng, for a lively discussion and reveal of the 10 “must haves" for cloud-consuming mobile workforces. Attendees will learn how to:
Use intelligence about identity, device, and cloud usage to inform policy decisions on the device, in the app, and in the cloud;
Identify cloud app usage trends to anticipate users’ needs and create a better mobile and cloud user experience;
Proactively protect sensitive user and corporate information through policy; and
Halt threats in the cloud before they propagate to users’ devices.
Is it possible to architect an enterprise cloud as good as a public cloud? Big Switch and Nutanix are transforming data centers by leveraging public cloud constructs as first principles for architecting enterprise private clouds. Big Switch’s Big Cloud Fabric (BCF) provides invisible (zero-touch) networking to Nutanix hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) based on Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV). BCF leverages cloud-first networking principles in two ways:
(1) leaf-spine design based on open networking switches with SDN controls, and
(2) public cloud VPC-style logical networking that is API integrated with Nutanix Prism.
This joint solution enables unprecedented operational velocity, network automation at VM speed and end-to-end network visibility & troubleshooting. With Big Switch + Nutanix Enterprise Cloud operating just like a public cloud in terms of economics and operational workflows, customers can now optimize app placement across public and private clouds based on app’s needs for elasticity, cost and performance.
This webinar will cover:
-How Nutanix Enterprise Cloud delivers agility, simplicity and pay-as-you-grow economics of public clouds to enterprise HCI
-How BCF-EC’s Enterprise VPC based logical networking brings public-cloud like network automation and deep visibility for Nutanix AHV deployments
-How the joint solution enables deployment flexibility and infrastructure elasticity
-Customer success story: How Nutanix uses Big Switch in their own data centers
Demo: Big Cloud Fabric + Nutanix (AHV) Enterprise Cloud solution
The modern Cloud delivers faster time to market, lower IT costs, and greater overall value to the enterprise by allowing companies to focus more on the core business problems rather than the infrastructure used to solve them. But the path to the cloud can be challenging for anyone with an established presence on-premises, or in a private data center.
Dan Taylor from Microsoft’s Cloud & Enterprise division shares with you how large enterprises are tackling this problem and gaining immediate value by leveraging the cloud. You’ll hear how enterprises are managing their migration to the cloud by embracing hybrid patterns, containerizing and migrating applications, using single-pane-of-glass monitoring solutions, and leveraging Azure to tackle data privacy.
