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?
The Internet of Things is becoming a reality, and as a result companies of all shapes and sizes are implementing digital transformation initiatives.

For years, even decades, people have talked about how virtual and augmented reality and technologies could be used in the classroom, but it is only with the current wave of consumer VR devices that there is in schools on a large scale is becoming practicable. But to be effective we need to understand the pedagogic basis on which such technologies can be used, and provide the tool for teachers to be able to create their own VR experiences tailored to their own students.
This presentation will look at the scope for the use of VR technologies in schools, describe some of the pioneering systems, and summarise the pedagogic underpinnings of VR use. It will then describe the Fieldscapes system as one example of a VR authoring system that will allow educators to create and share VR content, and how for the short-medium term a mix of VR and non-VR usage will need to be supported in order to cope with school ICT budgets, issues and concerns and different modes of use in and out of the classroom.
While public cloud adoption has been on the rise, most companies are still bound to strict requirements around security, privacy, and data sovereignty issues. For those exact companies, the idea of owning a private cloud is appealing. The reason is simple: private clouds provide similar benefits as public clouds -- such as self-service, automation, orchestration, and "one throat to choke". But how do mainstream IT organizations reap these same benefits? Come join us as we explore how new software-defined paradigms helps transform your dreams of a private cloud into a reality.Read more >
Today the individuals consuming services from healthcare providers and payers have very different expectations than they did just a few years ago. Patients want more transparency, more control, and a consistent experience across a growing number of touch points and applications. This presents two challenges for IT teams in the healthcare industry. First, they are tasked with ensuring optimal performance of the underlying complex, dynamic and hybrid IT infrastructures that support modern healthcare. Second, they must manage these infrastructures in the most efficient manner possible to help control costs and reduce complexity.
These new realities demand a better and more agile approach to IT infrastructure monitoring.
Join a panel of your peers and experts in healthcare IT to learn the answers to the following questions:
- Why are the key forces transforming IT infrastructure management in healthcare?
- How leading companies are changing their IT monitoring approach?
- What benefits can you achieve with an agile approach to IT monitoring?
- What are the key “Monday” morning steps you can take in order to start modernizing your approach?

These days, no meaningful conversation on financial services innovation can be had without a mention of blockchain. It is believed by many to have the potential to address many limitations of current financial services processes and infrastructure by providing an irrevocable record of identity and provenance, and reconciling events so that there is a single version of truth. But with potential and interest also comes hype and confusion.
In this webinar, industry experts will cut through the hype and separate myth from reality. They will explore characteristics of blockchain technology that make it suitable for financial services applications, and what current industry issues can really be solved by distributed ledger technology.
