This presentation presents recent survey data from 451 Research [VOTE product] on trends in Digitization of the Factory from the perspective of Operational Technologists. Top use cases for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the current project focus of IT/OT teams will be discussed. Followed by a discussion of how to protect your technology investment in non-traditional environments, including extending the network onto the factory floor, the wireless overlay, and the addition of compute and storage resources on the site (edge computing).
Rivalry and empowered customers are forcing enterprises to reconsider how they do business. ‘Digital transformation’ has emerged as a means to craft engaging customer experiences, automate business operations and fend off threats from rivals. It’s driving the need to rethink enterprise application design and accelerate the use of cloud services, thus forcing a redistribution of workloads across disparate hybrid IT infrastructure.
To cope, business and IT leaders must conceptualize new means to align business strategy and operations with modern IT automation and integration frameworks that can create new competitive advantages. Among the core technologies needed is a new approach to integration workflow automation that is now spawning the next-generation hybrid integration platform market.
Carl Lehmann, Principal Analyst at 451 Research joins Azuqua to discuss the strategic thinking and technical apparatus needed to enable new competitive advantage by:
•Describing the fundamental analytic techniques needed to craft compelling digital transformation strategy.
•Revealing how next-generation automation and integration platforms come together to enable a hybrid architecture that supports digital business.
•Suggesting how business and IT teams can link strategy with architecture capable of rapid response and adaption to the challenges, risk and opportunities posed in the digital era.
Attendees will learn the strategy and practices needed to become digital businesses by mastering hybrid IT integration and automation as means to continuously create new competitive advantage.

Analytics teams are becoming a shared resource throughout an organization and increasingly report to the Office of the CDO or CAO. As the roles of IT Managers, Developers and Data Scientists continue to evolve and Analysts engage more directly with business users we see self-service analytics taking root. The question then of investment and justification to spend on infrastructure and data management tools to enable self-service analytics is also shifting. This webinar will shed light on a recent survey of IT decision makers, CDOs, Analysts, Data Stewards and business users, who as users and purchasers must track and measure the ROI of a Data Catalog.
In this Webinar participants will learn:
•More on the evolving roles within organizations and the rise of stakeholders
•Which business ROI criteria were most critical in the decision to purchase a Data Catalog
•What capabilities of a Data Catalog respondents deemed most important when evaluating an investment
•Hear first-hand from a customer what their experience has been in the evaluation and use of a Data Catalog; and
•How ROI for a Data Catalog may be calculated
Ian Hughes, Senior Analyst IoT, and Emily Wentworth, Research Associate
451 Research has covered the adoption of Industrial IoT for several years, and it is a significant area to consider both for existing IT providers and for those industries looking to automate further. IIoT has significant long-term equipment installations, brownfield sites, as well as major new installations adopting all of the latest technology, under its umbrella. This area also has the ongoing organizational struggles between Operational Technology (OT) and IT, making projects more complicated to build and deploy. There are also some noticeable gaps in the approaches to IIoT and its related technologies that may not have been dealing with adequately.
During this webinar, Ian Hughes, Senior Analyst for IoT, VR and AR, and Emily Wentworth, Research Associate, at 451 Research will describe the current state of play of IIoT and then introduce some key challenges and opportunities in the future. Ian will touch on the challenge of defining architectures in IIoT, and testing and implementing solutions. He will further highlight the importance of uniting OT and IT and the role of people in what is often portrayed as a pure automation play, as well as cover how front-line workers will need to engage with IIoT on the shop floor, using tools such as Augmented Reality (AR) to get the full benefit of this digital transformation wave. Emily will cover her work on Cobots in this presentation.
The webinar will be of use to those in the IT industry who will benefit from the OT perspective and vice versa.

Gone are the days that IT was focused on configuring, managing or troubleshooting infrastructure. The lines between "Clouds" are continuing to become blurred more and more. IT now demands simplicity; the business demands that all applications run fast and perform reliably. In this session, our experts will discuss the evolution of the datacenter focuses on a few core tenants: Simple. Scalable. Reliable. Secure.
Jim Curtis of 451 Research and Ariff Kassam of NuoDB
No matter the industry – telco, financial services, medical devices – companies depend on applications to deliver services and/or to connect with customers. In this digital age, companies must accelerate application delivery to keep up with ever-changing customer demands and market pressures.
Modern application architectures and infrastructure - including microservices and containers - have emerged to deliver the application agility needed to propel digital transformation projects forward. However, traditional database architectures are guilty of anchoring both data and applications, forcing organizations to contend with heavyweight processes and development models. Monolithic relational databases simply weren’t meant to scale dynamically and can’t deliver the agility businesses and applications need. NoSQL databases scale, but force existing applications to go through a redesign process that is time intensive, expensive, and risky - requiring new technology training and support.
What is needed is a modern container-native SQL database - a flexible, distributed system that delivers the benefits of a typical SQL database (transactional consistency and ACID compliance) and is built to address the data and application demands of an agile, rapid development container environment.
In this webinar we will:
• Discuss the drivers for Digital Transformation initiatives
• Review how microservices and containers provide development agility
• Describe database options and what it means to be "container-native"
• Provide an overview and benefits of NuoDB's container-native SQL database
The evolution of data science – including machine learning, deep learning, and other forms of artificial intelligence – has had a significant impact on the data analytics landscape in recent years, and looks set to drive considerable change in the market in the coming years.
In response, 451 Research’s new Data Management and Analytics Market Map 2018 includes a complete re-categorization of our Analytics Market Map to reflect the realities of analytics users and use cases today, dividing the analytics market into four key sectors:
•Data science tools
•Data science platforms
During this webinar, 451 Research’s Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics, Matt Aslett, will explain the rationale and definitions behind the new categorization, as well as identifying the key challenges and innovations that will shape the analytics and data science market, and also revenue and growth expectations.
The webinar will also touch on other aspects of note delivered with the Data Management and Analytics Market Map 2018, including:
•The ongoing evolution of Corporate Performance Management
•The addition of Data science Management to the Data Management Market Map
As today’s midmarket organizations start to tackle modernization, it cannot be done in a vacuum. There are many considerations outside of a specific application or workload that impact the data that powers a business. Data no longer lives in one location (data center) as it did in the past, as it’s now in varying clouds, and in some cases like IoT, on the edge close to end users. So it’s critical to take a holistic approach that considers data’s role and flow in and out of each application and workload.
Matt Aslett of 451 Research & Justin Borgman of Starburst
As enterprises continue the steady migration towards the cloud, a new data architecture is gaining popularity that takes advantage of the natural separation of compute and storage the cloud provides. By separating the query engine from the data layer, companies are able to elastically scale each independently and optimize for the lowest cost and highest performance.
The open source Presto project was purpose-built for this and is being used by leading companies like Facebook, Airbnb, Uber, Netflix, and LinkedIn to empower analysts and data scientists to run SQL queries on data no matter where it resides, whether that's Hadoop, S3, or a traditional RDBMS.
Join this webcast to learn why companies are changing the very definition of what a "database" is and using Presto to query anything, anywhere.
BI and Big Data veterans Matt Aslett, Research Director at 451 Research and Justin Borgman, CEO at Starburst will deliver this session covering current industry trends, real use case scenarios and answering questions from the audience.
In this webinar you will learn:
- The pros and cons of separating query from storage
- An overview of the open source Presto project
- How to apply the principles of this cloud architecture in both public and private clouds

Carl Lehmann of 451 Research & Sumit Sarkar of Progress Software
Hyper-competition and digital-first initiatives are forcing organizations to reconsider how they do business. ‘Digital transformation’ has emerged to engage customers, improve efficiencies, and fend off threats from rivals. It’s driving the need to rethink application design that delivers information in context and automates tasks that must behave consistently across diverse mobile devices and all digital touchpoints. Common approaches include cloud-first and mobile-first strategies that accelerate the use of cloud services but also often forces an unwieldy redistribution of workloads across hybrid IT infrastructure.
APIs have emerged as integration enablers, and API management is now integral to IT and development discipline. But APIs are only part of a broader toolchain needed to deliver web and mobile apps. Emerging cloud-native app platforms for hybrid infrastructure represent the next-generation enabling technology needed by enterprises that seek transformative means to engage customers and craft new competitive advantages.
In this webinar Carl Lehmann, principal analyst at 451 Research and Sumit Sarkar, chief researcher at Progress will discuss the business and technical considerations for API management within a broader context of application strategies and hybrid IT integration by:
• Describing digital transformation and how it is used to create competitive advantage
• Identifying the critical technology enablers needed for execution
• Defining the role of APIs as accelerants to new ways of doing business
* Planning for rapid delivery of new application experiences in response to digital transformation
* Understanding backend requirements for web and mobile app delivery beyond API Management
AppDev, DevOps, integration and API development professionals alike will learn how to reconsider their development strategies and integration toolchains to become core enabling assets for digital transformation.
Fernando Montenegro, 451 Research & Pawan Shankar, Dome9 Security
Public cloud services are turning information security on its head. Traditional approaches to security that worked well in the datacenter are inadequate in public cloud environments. For example, the growing use of built-in platform services such as Amazon RDS and Amazon Redshift and computing paradigms such as containers and Azure Functions are creating new challenges for security. The public cloud requires a new born-in-the-cloud approach to security.
In this session, Fernando Montenegro, Senior Analyst on the Information Security team at 451 Research, and Suda Srinivasan, VP of Marketing at Dome9 Security will discuss new security implications and challenges presented by the public cloud and approaches to establish and maintain security and compliance at scale.
