Security Architecture Best Practices for SaaS Applications
Gartner has predicted 18-20% growth in SaaS market, and expects it to hit US $22.1 billion by the year 2015. They have also measured that SaaS adoption rate has increased many fold in the last few years (almost 71% of enterprises use SaaS solutions).
SaaS has come a long way from “hype” to “norm”. The key to this change is the confidence that has been built by the cloud/SaaS community by providing enterprise class security. Since, SaaS model of delivery has become a defacto standard of delivering products it’s critical for software providers to ensure that their SaaS product meets the required industry security standards. In this webinar, we will address the security aspects related to architecture, deployment and management of SaaS solutions.
• Security considerations in each of the architecture layers
• Data isolation risks and mitigation plans
• Overview of CWE/SANS and OWASP Security threats
• Data retention and termination policies
• Infrastructure and cloud related security risks and solutions

If you're in the consumer business, you will know how challenging it is today to retain a single customer and making them to buy from you. With the digitization, shopping has become a 24/7 experience and customers are now expecting seamless experience across all your sales channels - web, mobile, in-store, kiosk, call center and marketplace.
Today many organizations have gone into digital to meet their customer’s expectations but later face the challenge of integrating their legacy/IT systems with the digital platform; leading to slower product or promotion rollouts, data sync issues, lack of operational visibility and all leads into unsatisfied customers.
This session will show how you can establish a unified integration platform across all your sales channels and provide an accurate data, shopping experience and higher customer satisfaction.

Enterprise Collaboration System (ECS) facilitates efficient sharing of Information between teams and individuals in an enterprise. While ServiceNow is a software platform that supports IT service management and automates common business processes, the integration of "ServiceNow" and "Skype for Business / Lync" can give "Enterprise Collaboration" an added dimension.
With the integration, an organization can deliver solution faster, respond to real-time responses and build a more powerful presence. Every stake holder can hence feel a sense of assured support.
1. Collabration in ServiceNow
2. Integration Options
3. Brigning IT Support closer

Organizations have started to realize the benefits of “developing and deploying software quickly” through the concept of Continuous Delivery.

In this webinar, you will learn how to optimize your complete software development lifecycle through cloud-based agile process.
•How to scale up development in the cloud for distributed teams

•How to continuously monitor and measure the quality of software development
•Agile + CI/CD+ CLOUD - A case scenario
One of the most unique and critical feature of Cloud is it’s “Elasticity”. The very nature of SaaS applications being delivered over cloud (internet) enforces a natural requirement for these applications to be elastic as well in order to leverage the cloud benefits. However, one of the common myths in SaaS is Cloud will take care of scalability and application need not worry about it. Many SaaS providers realize this when their applications are put for a true scalability test – which can span across all the layers of your application. While the cloud facilitates elasticity the application should have been architected to make use of it. In this webinar we are going focus on the best practices involved in building a true scalable SaaS application.
• Scalability considerations in a layered architecture
• Scalability design patterns
• Techniques for database scalability
• Balancing cost vs. scalability in AWS cloud
• Key services in AWS for SaaS applications to leverage scalability
