Challenges and Opportunities in Workflow Automation for the Modern Workforce

Designing and managing complex, specific and even specialist work is no longer only the remit of centralized teams of specialist project managers, analysts and process experts. Companies are looking for looser, more matrixed, decentralized and collaborative forms of organization, they are reconsidering processes, people and technology as part of this shift with a focus increasingly on enabling these types of work to be done by business leaders and their teams.

Unfortunately the traditional mix of collaboration, team, task, project and business process management tools are struggling to deliver the balance of cohesive, flexible and extensible work processes business teams need.

They need a way of building automated processes that span across different systems and applications so that their myriad tactical workflows can be elevated into a strategic mesh of operations, giving them new ways to think about organizational culture, business agility, employee engagement, work throughput and customer satisfaction.

In this webinar Chris Marsh, Director of Workforce Productivity and Compliance at 451 Research and Ryan Duguid, SVP of Technology Strategy at Nintex will discuss the trends, pain points and opportunities around content and workflow automation for the modern workforce.

  • Considerations in Data Integration, Management & Governance Jul 18 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Carl Brooks of 451 and Jeff Budge of OneNeck
    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.
  • Separating Query from Storage in BI and Analytics: The Presto Story Jul 18 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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

  • The Role of API Management in Digital App Strategies Jun 27 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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.
  • The Evolving Threat Landscape in the Public Cloud Recorded: Jun 20 2018 51 mins
    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.

    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.
