Practical Lessons in IT Modernization Success

Modernization and cloud migration initiatives are disrupting public sector organizations as IT environments shift under their feet. According to a recent survey, replacing aging systems and reducing agency risk remain top drivers and more than 50% of respondents expect a hybrid environment as the end state of their IT modernization efforts. But only 13% say they are either very confident or confident in their ability to modernize current systems and applications, including cloud/hybrid migrations.

  • The Keys to Future-Proofing Your Agency Against Fraud Aug 26 2021 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Juliana Vida
    As more agencies and the services they provide digitally transform, fraud and its associated risks are more prevalent than ever — and now on a global scale. Across state governments, agencies are struggling to outpace innovative fraudsters, with new threats seemingly lurking around every corner of digital transformation. What are the top tools and strategies organization and IT leaders should be armed with to future-proof their agency against the threat of fraud, securing their data to not only protect residents, but also to reduce loss of capital, reputation, and efficiency?

    In Splunk’s webinar “The Keys to Future-Proofing Your Agency Against Fraud,” top anti-fraud experts will discuss the essentials all agencies should implement to continue safely and confidently evolving their modernization initiatives that require next-gen monitoring and analytics. The episode, part of Splunk’s series dedicated to enhancing enterprise data analytics for public sector organizations, will explore Splunk’s capabilities to outpace innovative fraudulent practices and ultimately drive organizational success. Key points to explore include:

    -The limitations of traditional anti-fraud tools to detect the ever-evolving forms that fraud can take — and the impact of these forms on eligibility program success
    -Why massive amounts of unstructured data that agencies generate leave them less efficient and less capable of detecting fraud
    -How machine learning and machine data are equipping fraud teams to effectively monitor, identify, and respond to new kinds of fraudulent activity
    -Review the latest technology and tools to leverage when it comes to enhancing enterprise fraud detection

  • 'Rethink IT' Series, Session One: New World, New Imperatives Aug 11 2021 12:00 pm UTC 98 mins
    William Cappelli, DevOPs Sales Specialist for EMEA at Splunk
    Accelerated migration to the cloud, remote work, and customer expectations around experience is causing new challenges for IT teams. As your organization's systems become more complex, ephemeral and distributed, you will need full visibility across the infrastructure, application services, and business services to get a full picture of your systems' state and ensure you are delivering what the business needs. This session will share some of the most common pain points we hear from our customers, and provide an overview of the new thinking that is helping IT teams successfully navigate the “new normal”.

  • Holistic Monitoring: All Systems Online Recorded: Jul 29 2021 36 mins
    Thomas Booth, Jay Etchings, Alex Kirk
    In support of mission objectives, today’s agencies run hundreds of applications, servers and virtual machines, which produce a constant stream of data in disparate forms. In addition, modernization initiatives are driving agencies to adopt new technologies and paradigms such as cloud, mobile and containers, microservers and serverless architectures. As a result, investigating, identifying and resolving issues has become more difficult, increasing time needed to bring systems back online. How can agencies gain end-to-end visibility across these environments and troubleshoot issues in real-time as well as preferably learn of them in advance, predicting issues before they occur?

    In Splunk’s “Holistic Monitoring: All Systems Online” webinar, part of a series dedicated to IT modernization, our host and guest speakers will share insights into confidently monitoring workloads and applications before, during and after modernization — regardless of the environment, including hybrid and multi-cloud and continuing to deliver services to meet mission and program objectives of their constituents. Key topics that this episode will explore include:

    -Gain real-time situational awareness of performance, usage, and availability of applications and workloads anywhere — on-premises, hybrid or multi-cloud environments
    -Remove blind spots by correlating data and events across environments — cloud provider, applications and workloads, and everything in-between, to gain a true holistic picture
    -Address problems faster with reduced time-to-decisions, and predict and prevent issues before they adversely affect the mission or experience
    -How to streamline incident response and encourage better collaboration, eliminating war-room efforts and reducing costs

    Alex Afflerbach, William Cappelli, Stephane Estevez
    The global ‘State of Observability 2021’ report recently published by Splunk and ESG Research reveals IT leaders’ early investments in observability improve performance, customer experiences — and the bottom line.

    Observability is obviously a good thing - there’s a lot that can go wrong with increasingly complex hybrid IT systems, and being able to both understand and remediate problems is essential. But like exercise, there’s a big range between the occasional brisk walk and regularly running a marathon. So we set out to answer two questions: What does a strong, high-level observability practice look like? And does it actually deliver meaningful results?

    This fireside chat will cover the key findings from this latest report, and explore the best ways to implement and use observability today. Join us to learn:
    - The current level of observability maturity across Europe
    - Key findings about observability benefits and negative outcomes
    - How observability increases innovation, customer satisfaction and more
    - The four steps to better observability according to observability leaders

  • The State of Security 2021 Recorded: Jul 22 2021 48 mins
    Yassir Abousselham, Chief Information Security Officer at Splunk and Jon Oltsik Senior Principal Analyst and Fellow, ESG
    Global research uncovers IT security leaders’ key strategies for cloud complexity, remote work and supply chain attacks.

    Security organizations have always been hard-pressed to keep up with the rising tide of data, the ever-expanding perimeter, and the increasing frequency and sophistication of attacks. Our research confirms the conventional wisdom: It’s only getting worse.

    In this just released global research, 76% of security and IT leaders say that remote workers are harder to secure. The familiar challenges have intensified in the COVID era: Manual processes are slow, cumbersome and widespread. The eternal shortage of skilled security experts is more pronounced. And cloud migration, a trend that goes back a good decade, has become more challenging because of ever-growing complexity, alongside ever-increasing velocity.

    Join our live webinar, The State of Security 2021, and learn:
    - How the IT security industry is evolving right now
    - Why organizations are losing ground in their effort to keep up with security requirements
    - The security challenges that remote workers are facing
    - How SolarWinds cyberattacks work, and what you can do to prevent them
  • Best Practices for Multicloud Monitoring & Investigation Recorded: Jul 14 2021 40 mins
    Nicolette Graham, IT Product Marketing; Nate Smalley, Technical Interlock Dir; Chris Crocco, Cloud Consult Engineer, Splunk
    83% of organizations are looking for new monitoring approaches to handle today’s cloud complexity. IT teams are challenged with monitoring cloud services and mission-critical applications by separate tools which lead to swivel chair approaches, runaway costs, and fragmented operational data getting trapped in siloed tools. This creates blind spots that halt teams’ ability to quickly detect and resolve issues, and negatively impacts customer experiences.

    What if there was a way to unify monitoring and investigation across the entire cloud stack? Wouldn’t the jobs of cloud architects and system administrators be so much easier if there were consolidated views enabling faster mean-time-to-detect (MTTD) and mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR)? Splunk is helping organizations across the globe accelerate their cloud journey with its analytics-driven, multicloud monitoring solution.

    Watch our webinar, "Best Practices for Multicloud Monitoring & Investigation" where you’ll learn:

    - Top trends in the market to maximize IT performance with a multicloud monitoring strategy
    - What capabilities organizations need to look out for when choosing the right tools
    - How to best optimize hybrid and multicloud management
    - How Splunk helps organizations tackle cloud complexity challenges

  • Fight Fraud with Data: How States Can Confront Unemployment Insurance (UI) Abuse Recorded: Jul 8 2021 61 mins
    Joe Beck, Division of Information Technology, New Jersey | Juliana Vida, Splunk | Dan Lohrmann, Center for Digital Government
    Unemployment claims skyrocketed over the past year, as millions of Americans lost their jobs during the pandemic. Sadly, as the number of claims rose, so did instances of unemployment insurance benefits fraud. These cases have resulted in billions of dollars lost. In California alone, officials reported more than $11 billion in improper payments in the first nine months of the pandemic. And these fraudulent claims aren’t just costly – they add complications and delays to already-overwhelmed state benefits systems that ultimately affect regular citizens who are out of work. Each state provides a critical lifeline for individuals and it's incredibly important that these systems perform well and detect fraudulent activity immediately.

    How can states fight fraud? With better access to data. More comprehensive information on identity and behavior will help stem the tide of fraudulent claims.

    Join us for an in-depth discussion on how states can get a handle on waste, fraud and abuse in your unemployment insurance benefits program. Our panel of public officials and industry leaders will cover a range of topics, including:

    · How unemployment insurance benefits fraud has impacted states during the pandemic
    · How better access to data can help address gaps in state unemployment systems
    · How your state can build on and mature its fraud strategy
  • The 5R's: Strategy For Application Modernization & Migration to Google Cloud Recorded: Jul 6 2021 43 mins
    Stephane Estevez, EMEA Director of Product Marketing, IT Markets, Splunk
    So you’re up to speed on what the cloud is and why it’s the right move for your business. Now comes the how - and spoiler alert, there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach.

    Many organizations are moving towards a multi-cloud or hybrid approach in the hopes of performance optimization, cost savings, and flexibility. Although achievable, this trend comes with various challenges in gaining visibility for monitoring, cost control and securing an organization's infrastructure, data and applications. So it’s important to implement the right migration strategy, in the right way, for your business.

    To help, this session will dissect the 5 different strategies for cloud migration and application modernization; Rehost, Refactor, Revise, Rebuild, Replace. We’ll walk through how to implement each one, review their pros and cons, and highlight the potential challenges if the time comes to combine them. Join us to explore:

    - Everything you need to know about “The 5 Rs” in order to select the right one(s) for your migration
    - The new challenges IT practitioners face from ‘Digital Transformation’ events such as Observability, Distributed Tracing, Service Monitoring, Business Insights and AIOps
    - How Splunk can help you migrate, manage and secure your workloads for on-prem (or existing cloud) to Google Cloud(s) such as GCP or Google Workspace
