  • [Panel] Enterprise Agility: Mastering the Management of Microservices and APIs Nov 20 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Devetry
    Despite the complexity of microservices, their impact on software application architecture has been phenomenal - shorter time to production and an ability to innovate substantially faster among them.

    To make the most of this impact, companies need microservices and APIs to work together to minimise this complexity and optimize enterprise agility. Join this panel discussion where leading experts share how to master the management of microservices and APIs to

    - Build an API strategy that enables microservices to exist with legacy systems
    - Enable discovery of data sources, services and applications
    - Create an API economy that benefits the business
  • Implementing AI in Enterprise Infrastructure and Cloud Nov 19 2019 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Moderated by Melanie Turek - VP of Research, Frost and Sullivan
    According to Tech Beacon, over the next 18 to 24 months, AIOps will
    'allow companies to use intelligent software automation to make decisions on known problems, predict issues, and provide diagnostic information to reduce the operational overhead for engineers.'

    From managing cloud costs to safeguarding the cloud, ensuring compliance, and incorporating intelligent operations, AI will revolutionize infrastructure and reduce TCO in the enterprise.

    Join this BrightTALK webinar - live or on-demand - to hear a panel of experts explore and understand the impact of AI on the future of cloud.
  • How Facebook & Microsoft Leverage NVMe Cloud Storage Nov 19 2019 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins

  • Understanding Fibre Channel Scaling Nov 6 2019 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Mark Rogov, Dell EMC; Brandon Hoff, Broadcom; J Metz, Cisco
    One of Fibre Channel’s greatest strengths is its ability to scale to thousands and thousands of nodes, while providing predictable performance. So, when we say that Fibre Channel has unmatched scalability, what does that actually mean? And how does it work?

    We often hear about “designed from the ground up,” but in this case it’s actually true. From each individual link, to the overall domain architecture, each step along the way is intended to be approached in a scalable fashion.

    In this webinar, we’ll be breaking down the pieces of the puzzle that help give Fibre Channel its robustness when you’re working at fabrics even greater than 10,000 nodes. We’ll be talking about:

    •What a deterministic storage network is
    •Fabric management principles
    •Negotiated credit transfers (buffer-to-buffer credits)
    •Network Engineering/Design Principles
    •Oversubscription and Fan-In Ratios
    •Topologies that help scale
    •Domains and Fabric limits
    •Consistency of performance at scale

    Along the way, we’ll be talking about some of the ways that Fibre Channel differs from other popular storage networks as they approach large-scale environments, and how it handles issues that arise in such cases.

    Please join us on November 6th at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET for another educational webinar on Fibre Channel!

  • [Panel] The Future: What to Expect From Cloud in the Coming Years Oct 17 2019 4:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    Ash Patel, Glyn Bowden, Mark Baker, Srini Karlekar
    It's not a secret anymore that cloud facilitates digital transformation and that many companies are happily embracing it - slower or faster, it really depends on the IT infrastructure already in place. What remains a mystery though, is what's next?

    BrightTALK has invited experts to discuss what is the cloud of the future and which trends are worth your attention to stay ahead of the game.
  • The IT Architect of the Future Oct 17 2019 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor and Mentor, IT Evangelist
    The role of the architect has changed dramatically in the past few years and is headed for even more change as the landscape of possible technology options is only going to
    increase. Faced with a list of options that is increasing almost daily across a highly
    competitive landscape, many architectural decisions have become an exercise in avoiding error rather than exploring possibility.

    Whilst an acceptance of failure is becoming the norm in smaller development faced activities, architects must make big decisions that can affect the entire operation of an organisation. This webinar explores some ideas for architectural best practice and mechanisms for reducing risk whilst empowering architects to unleash some of the exciting new options available to them.

  • Learning From Other Industries to Break the Rules of Transformation Oct 16 2019 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Simon Ratcliffe, CIO Advisor and Mentor, IT Evangelist
    Digital Transformation is an over-used phrase and one that is often used to describe what is
    essentially business transformation that is underpinned by technology. Does this mean that
    these transformations are deeply vertical and need deep industry experience to be
    successful? In this webinar we examine how organisations can learn from other industry
    sectors and also from breaking the standard rules within their own industry.
    In this webinar, listeners will be able to learn:
    - How do we look across industries and learn from success in others?
    - How do we escape from the ‘me too’ transformational activity and break away from trying to keep up and get in front?
  • Digital Transformation: Myths, Truths and Trends Recorded: Oct 15 2019 39 mins
    Mark Campbell, Chief Innovation Officer, Trace3

All you need to know, what it means and why it matters
Cloud computing is a general concept that incorporates software-as-a-service (SaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) and other recent well-known technology trends in which the common theme is reliance on the Internet for satisfying the computing needs of the users.

This channel features presentations by thought leaders who cover the key topic areas in this increasingly important field.
