  • Legacy Modernisation: Overcoming the Transformation Barriers Jun 27 2018 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, Principal Consultant, Ensono, Kevin Stoodley, CTO, IBM Z Series, & Alex Hilton, CEO, CIF
    A recent survey conducted by Ensono, in partnership with the Cloud Industry Forum, showed that 89% of respondents believed that legacy technology was a barrier to effective digital transformation. Given that many organisations operate a complex technology landscape often with elements in different locations, and with core components that are regarded as ‘legacy but critical’, there needs to be a clear and simple approach to overcoming these obstacles.

    Breaking down the barriers requires effective change in people, process and technology to attain a viable level velocity that will enable transformation without being held back by perceptions of legacy issues.

    Examining these issues, this webinar will provide insight and thought provoking approaches for organisations seeking to transform their operations against this backdrop.

    Speaker: Bogdan Vosnjak
    Surviving OMW to OMi Migration: The customer with a well-developed OMW-based monitoring solution was faced with a challenge to migrate to OMi10 due to OMW obsolescence. Their old monitoring system was deeply integrated, highly customized and exposed to the outside world (their partners and customers) on a 24/7 basis. Migration challenges included:

    - Migration of event sources (OM agents, SNMP Trap sources, NNMi, SiteScope)
    - Migration of Service models with complex propagation/calculation rules
    - Migration of customized Incident ticketing integration (Service Manager)
    - Migration of custom applications (event archive, Service availability web portal, downtime management)
    - Minimum downtime during migration

    In this presentation, attendees will learn how these challenges were addressed and ultimately overcome.

  • ITOps SIG Talk Ep. 2: A “real” migration into the Hybrid Cloud Recorded: Mar 15 2018 22 mins
    David Angradi
    A “real” migration into the Hybrid Cloud (HCM, PlateSpin, and Cloud Assess)

    The Hybrid cloud has either been a unicorn (something beautiful but not real) or a boogey man (something to prevent disruption) in our ecosystem for the last several years. In marketing and static architectures, we have seen a lot of promises, but very little actual progress.

    Hybrid Cloud is becoming more important everyday as nearly all companies are in (or will be in) the public cloud but many of these same companies ‘know’ that they cannot be 100% public. So, the problem we are all trying to solve is how can we provide all the features, functions and automations.
    What will be covered:

    •Building and migrating existing workloads to a Hybrid cloud
    •Use Cloud Assess product to discover and right size
    •Plate spin to move – migrate – in automation
    •Use HCM product for day-to-day management, automation and ITSM control

    Join us for the next upcoming SIG Talk on Thursday, April 19, 2018: http://www.vivit-worldwide.org/events/EventDetails.aspx?id=1081712&group=.
