    • Konvergenz in Telekommunikationsnetzen – übergreifendes Datenmodell für OSS & IT
      Konvergenz in Telekommunikationsnetzen – übergreifendes Datenmodell für OSS & IT Ulrich Schälling Recorded: Jul 3 2014 8:00 am UTC 47 mins
    • Konvergenz in Telekommunikationsnetzen – ein übergreifendes Datenmodell für OSS und IT Automatisierung

      Die integrierte Verwaltung aller Netz- und Serviceressourcen in Telekommunikationsnetzen bildet die Basis einer modernen OSS/BSS Architektur. Die Konvergenz der Technologien führt aber gleichzeitig zu einem Verschmelzen von OSS und IT Themen. Weiterhin werden im Rahmen von Virtualisierungen in naher Zukunft verstärkt auch Aufgabenstellungen aus dem Netz in das Data Center verlagert. Die Herausforderung für die Netzbetreiber ist somit, Transparenz über alle Ressourcen der gesamten Service-Kette zu erhalten, d.h. von der physikalischen, über die logische bis zur Service Ebene und von Telekommunikation über IT bis Data Center. Diese Transparenz ist die Grundlage für alle Planungs- und Engineering, Service Fulfillment und Service Assurance Prozesse und bildet somit die Basis für jegliche Art der OSS und IT Automatisierung. Neben funktionaler Themen in den unterschiedlichen Bereichen steht also insbesondere die für einen effizienten Netzbetrieb zwingend erforderliche Durchgängigkeit im Vordergrund. Das übergreifende Datenmodell bildet die Basis für die „out of the box“ integrierten Lösungen von FNT Command, wodurch diese nahtlose Navigation zwischen den unterschiedlichen Layern und Bereichen ermöglicht wird.

    • Open Source Adoption in Enterprises - The Risks, and How to Mitigate
      Open Source Adoption in Enterprises - The Risks, and How to Mitigate Jeff Luszcz, Founder & CTO of Palamida, and Anupam Bonanthaya, CMO of Aujas. Recorded: Jan 1 2017 6:00 pm UTC 69 mins
    • The popularity of Open Source Software (OSS) Technologies in the recent years has greatly impacted the development and innovation of software.

      The typical enterprise and application stack is made up of over 50% open source technologies. This mass adoption has helped every organization increase developer productivity and software production, as well as speed up the adoption of new technologies.

      While many companies take advantage of OSS to improve their products and infrastructure, they often lag behind in the management and support of the OSS technologies they use. However, due to the fact that an organization's process involves hundreds to thousands of OSS components, errors and vulnerabilities are likely to arise and affect the enterprise's process, risk profile and DevOps productivity.

      In order to mitigate the possible risks posed by these vulnerabilities, organizations, software executives and risk analysts need to understand the underpinnings of their infrastructure in order to be ready to repel attacks and threats.

      Most organizations are only aware of 2% of their OSS usage. Organizations and enterprises must establish an efficient and effective process for choosing, managing and remediating the OSS they base their company's success on.

      In this webinar, We will provide guidance for understanding the fundamental framework, important issues and concerns in Open Source adoption within the Enterprise, and share expert thoughts and practical tips in maximizing the benefits of using open source technologies and the best practices in managing security and legal risks.

      Key Takeaways
      1. Open Source basics
      2. Choosing commercial and Open Source (OSS) Technologies
      3. Security Risks and Challenges
      4. Opportunities and Threats
      5. OSS Tools and Work Process
      6. Recent Trends and Developments

      A must-attend webinar for senior leadership in IT and technology.

    • Application Security in an Open Source World
      Application Security in an Open Source World Kunal Anand, Prevoty | Rob McCurdy, MSU | Nate Smolenski, New York Life | Andy Wickersham, Fortune 100 | Sean Martin, ITSP Recorded: Oct 4 2017 5:00 pm UTC 63 mins
    • Thanks for your interest in our webcast where we will be discussing how to secure applications that rely on third-party and open source software.

      Aside from the data they collect, create, and store, applications can oftentimes be an organization's greatest digital asset. Building custom applications to match the customer and market demands mapped to revenue objectives and available resources can be tremendously rewarding, but also a potentially-huge undertaking.

      Ultimately, time to market is always a factor ... a requirement that almost always wins out over security. One way to tackle the time and effort to deliver more quickly is to leverage third party and open source components. But, do these elements save you in the long run - or do they introduce more risk in the form of potential vulnerabilities that are either not easily uncovered (at best) or not easily patched (if patchable at all)?

      To answer these questions and more, we've pulled together a group of experts that deal with these challenges on a daily basis. During their conversation, webinar attendees will learn:

      - What the value of open source software (OSS) is
      - What are some common cases where open source software is utilized in today's applications
      - What are the security risks and pitfalls when using OSS
      - A view into a few case studies for companies that have fallen victim to the risks of using OSS
      - How have companies identified and mitigated the risks associates with the OSS component, Struts
      - How to tune the secure software development lifecycle (SSDLC) to account for the use of open source software
