  • Deliver Applications Faster, Safer, and Better with Data- Driven Decisions Aug 16 2016 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Edward L. Haletky & Mike Kavis, TVP Strategy, and Andi Mann, Splunk
    Today we have made release cycles of new code take no more than 15m. By doing so we have lost some of the tools we have used in the past. Tools to maintain Code Quality. We use metrics that are about people more than we use metrics about code.

    If we are lucky, we have automated and orchestrated the deployment into production, but that is not how developers work, not how Q/A works, and most importantly no how we measure quality.

    Join this panel discussion with TVP Strategy (The Virtualization Practice) and Splunk to explore how to add quality back into our code by creating repeatable processes, measure those processes, and use automation and orchestration from beginning to end for all use cases.

  • The Traditional vs Continuous Audit: John Henry vs Steam Drill Recorded: Jul 20 2016 62 mins
    Greg Frazier, Sole Practitioner, Greg Frazier, CPA
    Database triggers, coupled with cloud technology and the growing popularity of APIs (application program interfaces) have beefed up the capabilities of continuous auditing. Industries of all sorts, from banking, to ecommerce, to supply chain, to logistics, use applications that incorporate software that instantly alerts stake holders to outliers in data. This is exactly what we auditors need in our profession. Instead, we and our clients continue to rely on annual audits for third party assurance. Fees for the traditional annual audits spiral downward because all of us know that there is little value in an audit opinion on year old information.

    Greg Frazier, CPA & Microsoft Certified Partner- Application Development will discuss the following:

    - What is continuous auditing?
    - How are continuous audits more valuable than traditional audits?
    - How are continuous audits more cost-effective than traditional audits?

    Join us in this session to deep-dive into cloud accounting tools and technologies such as QuickBooks, networks in the cloud, data captures, and more!

But if you don't get the foundations right now, how will you achieve success from these in the future? Hear insights to help you create the right foundations for your business to meet these demands head on.
  • Cloud Storage: Solving Interoperability Challenges Recorded: Jul 19 2016 34 mins
    Udayan Singh, Head, Tata Consultancy, Mark Carlson, Cloud Storage Co-Chair, Cloud Storage TWG Co-Chair
    Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
    The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
    As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
    Join us on July 19th to learn:
    •Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
    •Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
    •Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges

  • Securely Implementing Cloud Native Applications Recorded: Jul 19 2016 53 mins
    Edward L. Haletky, President, AstroArch Consulting Inc., Managing Director, The Virtualization Practice LLC
    Building Cloud Native Applications securely is more than using containers or building with orchestration and automation. It is a lifecycle which includes moving security from external sources directly into the application. To move security into the application requires knowledge of the application, security, and testing. Developers need to learn more about security, but as they do, the process must also change to protect the developer, the application, and to improve security testing in an automatic method. Automation and Orchestration is crucial, but so is finding out what was done wrong, so it can be corrected. The key to this is a Secure Agile Cloud Development architecture and process. Join us to deep-dive into these processes and best practices for secure application development and management.
