ITG Debates presents a debate between FireEye and Eko Devices on the topic "Is data security just as important as cutting-edge healthcare technology." FireEye manufactures top of the line network security products, and regularly produces research on the modern cyber threat landscape. Eko Devices is a startup on the cutting edge, producing the world's smartest stethoscopes which generate data that is stored on the network. This debate will be hosted by ITG, and will explore the impacts of cyber threats and modern medicine technology on quality of care, patient data, privacy, and hospital brand. This debate will have relevant information for anyone in the IT and infosec sectors, as well as hospital, healthcare, and other health related industry professionals. Attendees will have an opportunity to win a GoPro Hero3!Read more >
This is a replay of the previous webinar on the blurring line between Cloud Foundry, Diego and Docker. We had some technical issues with the livecast, but here is a replay with proper audio and slides. Thank you for joining us again!
Here is the full agenda:
Part 1: Cloud Foundry vs Docker vs Diego
– Containers vs Cloud Foundry PaaS
– Docker vs Cloud Foundry Diego
– Docker vs Cloud Foundry
– Cloud Foundry Diego vs Fig vs Docker Swarm
Part 2: Who is using containers in production?
– The dark side of AWS when it comes to Cloud Foundry.
– Examples of Cloud Foundry clusters in AWS, OpenStack & vCloud.
– Cloud Foundry Case Studies in Fortune 500 (1 x Technology, 1 x Pharma, 1x Financial Services).
Part 3: Driving adoption of Cloud Foundry in a large organization
– What not to expect from CF.
– Anatomy of 5 stages of Cloud Foundry adoption in a large organization.
– Developer pushback!? What works vs doesn’t.
Part 4: Operating Cloud Foundry
– How much resources and $ does it take to operate your own CF?
– Ops team sizing.
– Cluster sizing.
– Metrics to measure success of Cloud Foundry program
Part 5: Cloud Foundry Diego – demo of clustered Diego + Docker
One of the biggest frustrations of in-house creative services teams comes from being treated like a “drive-through” service rather than a strategic partner. More and more, creative services teams are realising that it’s time to take more control of their work. In an attempt to prove their value, worth, and expertise to the internal clients they serve, several in-house creative teams have made the strategic decision to rebrand and restructure their teams to function as full-service, in-house creative agencies.
What does this trend mean for your creative team? Does it make sense for you to make the switch?
This Design Week webinar, in association with Workfront, will discuss the following items to help you decide if transitioning to an in-house agency is the best move for you:
•Creative Services vs. In-house Agency – what’s the difference?
•The main motivations for rebranding
•Which factors to consider before making your decision
•Five steps for getting started and managing the change
We caught up with F-Secure's Mikko Hypponen to get his thoughts on the ever-relevant Privacy vs. Security debate.
Mikko discussed the sensitive equilibrium required to protect data and ensure it's privacy; the influence that the EU's Safe Harbour ruling will have and how security should be the responsibility of all, not just the government.
He also gave his one key piece of advice for keeping your data private and secure.
Business Intelligence vs. Data Analytics or Data Analytics vs Business Intelligence?
Most companies are wrestling internally to get clear and valuable data/insights to predict the change that could affect their business. Traditional BI could be improved on with the help of Data Analytics, while at the same time Data Analytics needs to be fed by BI. More and more BI and real-time analytics are converging and supporting each other to deliver valuable insights and critical reports.
Let’s look together at some tips and real life examples.
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.
As Git gains in popularity and Subversion extends its features for enterprise development, the two often operate side-by-side. This session will outline the benefits of each system (centralized vs. distributed), and how to best support a hybrid deployment.Read more >
Join GridGain co-founder and Apache Ignite™ (incubating) PPMC Member Dmitriy Setrakyan, Thursday, May 21 at 11:00 AM PDT/2:00 PM EDT for another deep-dive webinar: "Comparing and Benchmarking Data Grids: Apache Ignite™ (incubating) vs. Hazelcast".
In this 50-minute webinar specifically designed for software developers and architects, Dmitriy will cover some major differences between Apache Ignite™ (incubating) and Hazelcast Data Grid technologies. Dmitriy will also focus on the benchmarks built using the Yardstick Benchmarking Framework to evaluate the performance of Apache Ignite™ (incubating) and Hazelcast deployed within Docker Containers on Amazon EC2 cloud. He will cover transactional cache operations, as well as cache queries using SQL. Dmitriy will finish by answering any questions you may have at the end.

Selecting the right mobile application architecture for your app can be a daunting decision - and it should be. Going down the wrong road can be extraordinarily painful and fraught with costly overruns, project delays, and throwaway code. Our mobile app development experts share lessons learned from developing their own mobile architecture and from helping hundreds companies pick the right mobile path.
In this session, you will learn how to navigate the mobile architecture decision process to select the right mix of native and HTML5 in order to achieve the perfect balance of richness of use, development productivity, and apps built for the long haul.
Data leakage is a concern for organizations, particularly those that need to secure sensitive data on unmanaged devices and on unsecured networks. As more organizations migrate to the cloud, many need the robust security capabilities of on-premise apps coupled with the flexibility of the cloud.
In this webinar, we will discuss the differences between DLP in the cloud and on-premises and how a Cloud Access Security Broker can help fill the gaps with a comprehensive data-centric security solution.
