Scale vs. Services: Finding, Funding & Valuing Assets for the Digital Future

As enterprises evolve their digital infrastructure, service providers need to piece together offerings that will differentiate themselves without breaking the bank. In this panel we will discuss how M&A can provide some missing pieces and what those pieces may be. Join our distinguished panel of finance experts as we discuss key questions such as: Who is likely to go shopping? What firms will be targets? Are networks and datacenters more or less sought after than services and software providers? How are assets being valued? What financing is available and on what terms? We will debate these and more as we explore trends impacting this dynamic sector.

  • Reducing Risk in the Data Center with DCIM Jan 18 2018 4:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Rhonda Ascierto, Research Director at 451 Research and Mark Gaydos, Chief Marketing Officer at Nlyte Software
    The management of change has been a recognized and necessary discipline in enterprise IT for decades. But the management of change – and indeed critical events – in datacenter facilities has not received so much attention, despite the dangers and significant costs associated with even partial failure.

    Increasingly, datacenter owners and operators are reducing risks associated with change and unplanned events by using purpose-built datacenter infrastructure management (DCIM) software. DCIM has become an essential element of modern datacenter risk management, from monitoring and alerting to traceable (auditable) workflows, asset tracking, predictive analytics and end-to-end risk analysis.

    In this webinar, you will learn how DCIM is being leveraged to understand, manage and lower risk, while at the same time delivering efficiency, agility and cost benefits.
  • Challenges and Opportunities in Workflow Automation for the Modern Workforce Jan 11 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Chris Marsh, 451 Research Director | Ryan Duguid, Nintex SVP of Technology Strategy
    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.

  • Shift Left: How testing early and often is best for the business and customer Recorded: Dec 12 2017 50 mins
    Nancy Gohring 451 Research and Steve Feloney CA Technologies
    Organizations in most any industry are feeling increasing pressure to move fast. But at what cost? Some have learned the hard way that skipping crucial processes, like testing, damages performance and impacts customer sentiments on your brand. In this case, the fast time to market becomes meaningless.

    Smart businesses are adapting to a shift left strategy. These teams are learning how to incorporate testing early and often in the release cycle, supporting business requirements to move fast while ensuring high-performing products and quality. But getting there isn’t easy. In this webinar, we’ll cover:

    •Testing tools: tool choice is important. Not all tools have been designed to support this new paradigm.
    •Integrations: to be effective, testing tools must integrate easily with the tools and processes modern teams use, including CI/CD and APM products. Further, these tools must be very easy to use, specifically for developers.
    •Organizational models: shifting left requires changes to traditional organizations and culture. We’ll share insight into the successful models we’ve seen.
  • Endpoints in the Hyperconnected Era: Weaknesses and Weapons Recorded: Dec 7 2017 60 mins
    Scott Crawford, 451 Research | Ofer Israeli, Illusive
    If ever there were a truly asymmetric battle, it’s in the war for the endpoint. Enterprises must apply defense as broadly and consistently across hundreds or thousands of endpoints as best they can. But to penetrate an organization, the attacker only needs to succeed with one that exposes a weakness. And from the network, to the endpoint itself, to the user that interacts with malicious content, these weaknesses may be many.

    There is a new array of tools in the fight for the endpoint that go beyond traditional monitoring and controls, or the trend toward applying machine learning to the art of defense. In this webinar, Scott Crawford of 451 Research and Ofer Israeli of Illusive Networks will examine these issues and opportunities, and shed light on deception technology and other new tools for intelligent defense at the endpoint that can recognize and contain a threat before it has a serious impact.

  • Five Risks That Could Jeopardize Your Application Security Strategy Recorded: Dec 5 2017 39 mins
    Arxan: Dustin Anders | 451: Scott Crawford
    Applications are ubiquitous and essential to the operation and growth of business in today's digital enterprise. Applications are a treasure trove of customer information, intellectual property, and confidential data. They often contain critical IP, application functionality, data, and keys for accessing back-end corporate systems.

    Many enterprises believe the measures they have taken to protect their networks and endpoints and to develop more secure applications are sufficient to mitigate these risks. But many of these measures only build better fences around applications. Organizations that develop applications, meanwhile, may believe that the measures invested in application security testing and operational defense can mitigate at least the most significant exposures. But when an adversary has the ability to analyze applications closely, organizations may be surprised to discover that the security of sensitive data, their competitive advantage, and keys to accessing critical back-end systems, can be laid bare more easily than they think.

    Compromises to an organization’s applications can create enormous risks that company leaders may rarely consider fully. Breaches to an application can quickly lead to a loss of IP, damage an organization’s brand, violate compliance and regulatory requirements, and even lead to customer harm – consequences abundantly evident in recent high-profile breaches.

    Join us to learn more about the 5 critical areas where application risk management falls short.

  • Beyond the Data Lake: Self-service Marketplaces on the rise Recorded: Nov 30 2017 61 mins
    Matt Aslett, Research Director, Data Platforms & Analytics, 451 Research Paul Barth, CEO, Podium Data
    The idea of the data lake was alluring; the means to having data at your fingertips, filtered, profiled, secure and business-ready for data consumers to rapidly derive higher-levels of business value. However, this widely adopted concept didn’t come with an instruction manual.
    The past few years have been turbulent times for enterprise data and analytics. In this live discussion, the presenters look beyond the lake, discussing the combination of self-service data preparation and data management and governance as one; a truly functional data marketplace or “data bazaar”. In addition, they will touch on other key enablers fueling the adoption of the self-service marketplace, including;
    •Data as a service,
    •Smart data ingestion – validation/profiling,
    •Smart data cataloging/search,
    •Data governance,
    •Machine-learning-driven recommendations,
    •Data collaboration.
  • The Foundation of Cloud Security Recorded: Nov 30 2017 57 mins
    Garrett Bekker, Principal Security Analyst at 451 Research & Richard Walters, Chief Security Strategist at CensorNet
    Cybercrime damages are predicted to cost organizations $6 trillion by the year 2021, doubling from $3 trillion in recent years,1 and some say this astronomical figure may be an underestimation. As more organizations shift their infrastructure to the cloud, the number of attack vectors grows fueling an exponential increase in cybercriminal activity – and it’s not expected to slow down any time soon.

    Lack of visibility is one of the greatest vulnerabilities posed by the move away from on-premises, firewall-protected systems and apps to the cloud. Ultimately, it is near impossible to protect what you can’t see, and gaining insight into cloud properties owned and managed by external vendors can be a challenge. Yet, building strong cyber defenses depends on having a view into every corner of your environment to identify single risk factors as well as anomalies across your network.
    In this webinar, 451 Research and CensorNet share how organizations can implement a comprehensive security solution that delivers visibility throughout your environment. We’ll cover:

    •An overview of the cloud security market and current trends
    •The four most common attack vectors and how to secure them
    •Why a unified approach to security is imperative to identifying threats
    •Why avoiding complex security solutions helps improve visibility
    •How to expand your visibility beyond single points of vulnerability to catch cloaked attacks
    •And more
