Zero Trust & Securing Multicloud Environments

As the evolution of cloud technologies and providers jostle for position in their respective USPs, many enterprises are opening their eyes to multicloud to leverage the best-of-breed to cover all aspects of their business and IT needs. Along with this, we tend to create a trust boundary between either (a) the cloud and the user on the internet (b) the cloud and users on the enterprise network in hybrid architectures. But what about the inter-cloud security considerations, potential threats, disparate support teams and governance? In this session, we discuss some real-life scenarios, potential issues and solutions.

  • Don’t rush into RPA, start with IPA Aug 28 2019 10:30 am UTC 30 mins
    Andrew Tarry, Director of Engineering, Digital Transformation, 6point6 and Chris Porter, Managing Director, Digital Transform
    Companies are embracing automation technology to reduce the effort for high-volume, laborious and repeatable processes. But a great deal of this automation technology is implemented in isolation, which ties you into existing systems and hampers your digital transformation journey. Instead, combining existing process management with both RPA and AI when looking to realise value-driven transformation ultimately creates a more efficient and productive outfit, solving your operational efficiency problems.

    In this interview with Andrew Tarry, Director of Engineering, we will explore why automation isn’t always the solution. There is a need for expertise in process modeling and to look at the whole organisation’s processes otherwise you’ll miss the bigger picture. RPA does put power into the business but we advise caution as it tends to end up with a proliferation of robots. Instead, this interview will explore how best to use RPA to turn legacy systems into modern processes, and how to move towards Intelligent Process Automation (IPA).

    Join the 6point6 Director of Engineering, Andrew Tarry, and Chris Porter, Managing Director, as they uncover the best approach to automating business processes.

  • The machine says….I don't know where I got that number from Recorded: Aug 20 2019 27 mins
    Gary Richardson, MD, Emerging Technology, 6point6
    How data lineage is more important than ever in the drive towards AI-driven analytics:

    Historically Business Intelligence and Analytics has been providing businesses with the insights into how their businesses are operating and what trends are emerging. If a number looked funny an eagled eyed executive could take action and reset the machine, in the world of AI-driven analytics these days are drawing to an end as we increase the ability of machines to take action. The result is data lineage and governance in the age of AI-driven analytics is more important than ever.

  • A Process for Running Robust and Empowered DevOps at Scale Recorded: Jun 18 2019 36 mins
    Mark Debney, DevOps Director at 6point6
    The first step in DevOps implementation at scale involves building a solid foundation of tooling, automation, architecture and testing to provide a standardised level of consistency for development teams to build upon. But where to from here?

    How do we move from dedicated DevOps engineering teams to a robust DevOps capability ingrained within multi-disciplinary teams?

    What steps can we put in place to ensure DevOps works effectively at scale?

    When we acknowledge that scaling DevOps is really about strengthening DevOps capabilities within development teams, we can identify which capabilities are core to our delivery process, how we can strengthen and share these effectively across the wider development practice and which capabilities, if any, are better suited to sit outside of a development team when running at scale.

    Join the 6point6 DevOps Director, Mark Debney, as he sets out the process for running robust and empowered DevOps at scale.

    About the speaker:

  • Architecting and delivering the operationally resilient bank Recorded: May 28 2019 30 mins
    Gary Richardson, MD, Emerging Technology, 6point6 ; Aaron Regis, Solutions Engineer, DataStax
    Building on the FCA/PRA discussion paper of July 2018, operational resiliency is now one of the 5 key priorities for the UK regulators for 2019/2020 as published in their annual business plans on 17 April 2019.

    "Technology is integral to the delivery of financial products and services. It is evolving more rapidly than ever before, bringing significant benefits for consumers, market participants and the wider economy. The disruption from technology outages and cyber-attacks is an ongoing challenge and cyber-enabled fraud is a focus of the Government’s economic crime reform agenda. The potential for harm is increased by complex and ageing IT systems, increasing use of third-party service providers and complexity of changes to systems and processes. " - FCA Business Plan 2019/2020

    Join 6point6 and DataStax as we explore how architecting and delivering the operationally resilient bank can be achieved by focusing on architecting and designing for failure, legacy workload offloading onto modern resilient data fabrics and adopting a multi cloud hybrid approach delivers value for the bank and ultimately benefits customers.

  • Busting Data Lake Myths and Dragons Recorded: Apr 17 2019 35 mins
    Gary Richardson, MD, Emerging Technology, 6point6
    Leveraging data lakes is no longer a technical challenge, AWS, Azure and GCP make it easy to provision and harness the technical infrastructure needed in order to leverage your data. The issues that prevent data exploitation are all of the non technical drivers that we have been talking about for years. In this talk we will run through the following provocations:

    1. We don't need governance, we have a data lake.
    2. We have all our data in one place so we know what data we have.
    3. We have a data lake so we now have a data strategy.
    4. We have new shiny tools we don't need to think about data engineers.
    5. We do agile so we will get results.

    Register for our webinar and get the inside track on how to leverage cloud data lakes.

  • How to Keep Real Life Artificial Intelligence Fit Recorded: Feb 12 2019 32 mins
    Gary Richardson, MD, Emerging Technology, 6point6
    AI, machine and deep learning are making strides in organisations. However, the results of the projects will start to lose their effectiveness as the business environment evolves over time. In order to keep the AI fit and effective you need to rapidly evolve into Model Operations or ModelOps.

    This talk will cover how ModelOps will keep AI fit and consistently deliver business value by:
    - Keeping an eye on model performance
    - Capturing and retraining models whilst constantly engineering features
    - Providing model explainability so all stakeholders can interpret the results
    - Generating the decision vault to capture the inputs, model and outputs
    - Confirming the decision by enabling parallel consideration

    Rather than provide you real world examples of AI in action we will give you a peak behind the machine of how you keep AI working in the real world.
