Adopt IT Operations Analytics to Make Better Decisions, Faster

In the digital era, IT has an extraordinary opportunity to become a data-driven business partners helping the business achieve its goals of revenue generation, cost reduction, and risk mitigation. However, IT reporting and analytics have historically focused on descriptive and diagnostic work – describing what happened and why. The speed and agility of the digital revolution demands the ability to not only describe what happened in the past but to predict what might happen in the future and to make recommendations about what should be done.

IT operations analytics offers IT organizations a path to evolve the use of machine, operational and business data for more effective, forward-looking prioritization and decision-making. And in a recent BMC sponsored survey, 79% of IT pros said they would be more effective at their job if they had access to non-IT sources of data to help them make decisions in business context.

Join Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research, and Erin Avery, BMC Software, for a high energy, fast paced discussion on adaptive, real-time analytics that any IT operations organization can adopt to become highly prescriptive and predictive.

    •The movement to cloud
    •The Catalog-First strategy; Automated & metadata driven
    •Building a Smart Catalog (smart data ingestion – validation/profiling)
    •Making data business ready (cleansing, conformed, protected)
    •Provisioning for Easy Consumption (browse/search, refresh, publish, access controls)
  • Enterprise IT Shifts Off-Premises: Cloud, Data, and Digital Transformation Jun 14 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Melanie Posey, 451 Research
    Digital transformation initiatives such as business intelligence/analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and big data are top priorities for IT organizations in 2018. Toward that end, according to a recent 451 Research survey, a full 60% of more than 1,000 IT leaders surveyed report that they plan to run the majority of their IT off-premises by year-end 2019, including public cloud and SaaS.

    At the same time, a number of organizational, cultural, and technology challenges have kept almost two-thirds of IT executives from developing formal digital transformation strategies.

    What is the path forward? What does the off-premise landscape look like? What are the key elements of a successful strategy?

    Melanie Posey, research vice president and general manager, Voice of the Enterprise at 451 Research will delve into the data and strategies IT organizations are implementing to facilitate this strategic shift and arrive at the point where they can focus on helping differentiate their business, rather than merely keeping the lights on.

  • The Need for Universal Identity Management Recorded: May 22 2018 37 mins
    Garrett Bekker of 451 Research & Lewis Carpenter of Auth0
    Companies seeking identity and access management (IAM) solutions are confronted with a fragmented marketplace. There are various solutions aimed at solving authentication and authorization, but each tends to focus squarely on a single audience, whether it’s consumers (B2C), business partners (B2B), employees (B2E), or IoT devices. This siloed approach makes the process both confusing and costly for those needing identity across the entire organization and beyond.

    Fortunately, change is underway and enterprises are realizing that a universal approach to identity is saving money, time, and most importantly, giving developers the freedom they need to focus on product innovation rather than security. Today’s marketplace demands a more adaptable solution that can handle the rigors of identity, and anticipate the needs of the future.

    Join this exciting webinar with Garrett Bekker, principal analyst at 451 Research, on the current state of the IAM industry, his take on its evolution and where it needs to go, as well as an overview on Auth0’s universal approach to identity.

    During this webinar, participants will learn:
    •The necessary evolution of the IAM industry
    •The valuable resources and costs wasted when disparate identity management solutions are used within one enterprise
    •Benefits of a “hybrid” approach and how it solves multiple use cases simultaneously
    •What “cloud nirvana” is and why platform convergence is necessary now for tomorrow’s economy

  • Digging into DevSecOps: Realities and Opportunities Recorded: May 15 2018 62 mins
    Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, Cloud Management and Containers, 451 Research; Meera Rao, Senior Principal Consultant, Synopsys
    To learn more about the realities of DevSecOps today and the real degree to which security is or is not being included in enterprise continuous integration/continuous delivery workflows, we surveyed 350 decision-makers at large enterprises across a variety of industries.

    What we found is that only about half of enterprise CI/CD workflows include any security elements at all, highlighting ample room for improvement. Enterprises did seem to show an awareness of the importance of adding security elements into DevOps releases, but they are not necessarily injecting security early in the process -- ideally at code commit and in pre-implementation. This webinar will cover these and other results of our survey, and offer guidance on how enterprise organizations can effectively integrate security tools, thinking and people into their CI/CD workflows to reduce rework and risk without sacrificing velocity.
  • AI & Cyber Security: The Self-Defending Digital Business Recorded: May 15 2018 31 mins
    Nick Patience of 451 Research, Justin Fier of Darktrace and Michael Sherwood of City of Las Vegas
    We are today witnessing a new era of cyber defense, powered by artificial intelligence. AI is now relied on not only to identify sophisticated cyber-threats, but to autonomously respond to them as well, without the need for human intervention.

    In this webinar, Nick Patience, Research VP at 451 Research, and Justin Fier, Director of Cyber Intelligence & Analytics at Darktrace, will discuss how Enterprise Immune System technology is helping to build self-defending networks, powered by machine learning and AI algorithms that iteratively learn a sense of ‘self’ for your organization. They’ll examine how this self-learning system is today uncovering some of the most hard-to-find attacks, from IoT hacks and insider threats, through to ransomware and stealthy attackers lurking in your systems.

    Special guest presenter Michael Sherwood, CIO of the City of Las Vegas, will wrap up with a case study on how he implemented Darktrace across the city’s corporate network and smart city initiatives, and how he uses the technology to autonomously respond against fast-moving threats in real time.
  • IoT = IT + OT: Solving the Enterprise IoT Equation Recorded: May 9 2018 56 mins
    Rich Karpinski, Research Director for Voice of the Enterprise – IoT
    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.
