Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The Compliant Cloud

Many organizations have embraced, or are considering, the benefits of cloud computing – speed, flexibility, increased expertise, shared workload, reduced costs, etc. The benefits are many – but so are the risks. What are the threats to cloud security? Which parties assume responsibility for securing the environment? What about the data? Which type of cloud deployment offers superior security benefits?

This presentation examines cloud computing from a security and compliance perspective. Global information security standards and prevalent regulations focus on maintaining the confidentiality of data, leaving technology responsible for it processing to the discretion of the affected organizations. Most of these documents were written prior to general availability and adoption of cloud computing as a business model; none currently contain cloud-specific requirements. A regulated organization must therefore balance technological momentum with regulatory inertia. Is it realistically possible for forward-looking technologies to be retro-fitted for aging compliance requirements? How have global standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), for example, kept pace with emerging technologies and business practices?

  • Increase App Confidence using CI/CD and Infrastructure as Code Feb 16 2021 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Angel Rivera, Developer Advocate, CircleCI
    Ever run code changes through CI/CD and everything passed clean and green in the pipeline checks, then experience undetected critical failures in the live target environment post-deployment? This scenario is very common and impacts many teams and organizations even the teams with the most rigorous testing practices. In most cases this behavior can be eliminated by running basic Smoke Tests on the application live in their target environments. Smoke testing apps in target environments will expose unwanted patterns/behaviors and provide a solid understanding of how the application will perform.

    In this talk Angel will discuss the advantages of implementing Smoke Test patterns into CI/CD pipelines using Infrastructure as Code (IaC). He will discuss how teams can leverage automation to ensure apps are tested live in target environments which provide valuable insights pre-deployment. Angel will also demonstrate how to leverage IaC to provision Kubernetes clusters, deploy apps, test live then destroy all the resources created in a single CI/CD pipeline run.
  • 5 Levels of High Availability: from Multi-instance to Hybrid Cloud Feb 16 2021 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Rafał Leszko
    Does running your application on multiple machines mean it's highly available? Technically yes, but the term HA is already more than that. Take Kubernetes installation, if you install it on AWS, it's not considered HA unless your master nodes are in different availability zones, not only on different machines. And actually, there is much more on that topic.

    In this session I'll present 5 high availability levels:
    1. Multi instance
    2. Multi zone
    3. Multi region
    4. Multi cloud
    5. Hybrid cloud

    I'll discuss real-life use cases we experienced while developing Hazelcast and present examples of the related technical features you may need: in-memory partition backups, zone aware partition groups, WAN replication.
  • We Hear for You - The Future of Help Desks in 2021 Dec 4 2020 11:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jo Lynn Clemens, Sarah Copeland, Ashish Santha Kumar, Peter Nassos, CPA, CPCU, CISSP, Head of Security, I've Been Vetted
    The help desk has become increasingly important to not only determine problems that might arise within an application but also to determine a customer's level of satisfaction with the application and preferred features and recommendations. As such, the help desk has morphed to include functions that were traditionally outside of the Help Desk role. Such services include Customer Service, Sales, and Marketing. As more and more companies become aware of the wealth of information available throughout the Customer Journey, we will find more valuable data to improve the efficiency, satisfaction, and effectiveness of solving our customer's pain points both today and tomorrow. Why? Because "We Hear for You."

    In this presentation you will learn;

    1. Emerging communication channels that meet the customer where they are
    2. Improvements in ensuring agents are more skilled at addressing customer problems
    3. The importance of analytics in honing the customer journey through real-time insights that enable companies to "hear" their concerns
    4. How automation can be used to improve efficiency
  • IT Service Management in 2021: Predictions, Challenges and Changes Dec 4 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Daniel Breston, Daniel Breston Ltd; Evan Carlson, EasyVista; Fran Fernandez, Espressive & Pierre Aeschlimann, Cherwell
    2020 asked businesses, organizations and IT teams to be agile, proactive and to challenge their modus operandi. It also challenged IT Service Management teams to champion businesses’ digital journeys in a way that no-one could have predicted in December 2019.

    In this special end-of-year panel, ITSM experts come together to share ‘stories from the field’ in a year unlike any other, predictions for what 2021 may bring and advice and tips for service management professionals to embrace the coming year with the same dexterity, calmness and leadership they displayed in 2020.

    From technologies and tools, to strategies for adopting and embracing cultural shifts, our experts will be sharing use cases and looking at:

    - How AIOps and an AI-first approach enabled cutting-edge ITSM teams to survive COVID-19
    - How to plan for the future of your ITSM strategy given the acceleration of Digital Transformation initiatives in 2020
    - Tips for maintaining a work-life balance when the business depends on you more than ever
    - And more
  • Animate your support documentation to help SHIFT LEFT Dec 4 2020 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Phil Reynolds, Owner/Animator, Philanimates Limited
    Creating animated videos of your support documents will help to ease the workload on your Service Desk. Videos grab staff attention, make the guides much easier to use, improve user confidence and reduce repeating calls to the IT service desk, freeing up support staff to do more value-adding activities. This should form a key part of any Shift Left strategy.

    With budget pressures increasing, headcount is under pressure, maximising productivity is vital and growing staff confidence and digital dexterity is key to achieving that. Service desks are also under ever-increasing pressures, with an ever-growing range of products and services to support, each with a range of capability, from learner to advanced. Convincing end-users to self-learn and self-support is an important aspect of not only improving end-users productivity but also the productivity of the IT
    service desk.

    In this webinar we will explore:
    - Arguments for video-based support guides, and where to focus first.
    - Options for resourcing their creation.
    - The skills required to create engaging videos.
    - The process for creating engaging videos
    - Options for delivery of videos to support new technology deployments.
    - Engaging staff to encourage use of self-help video guides.

  • How to Bridge the Gap Between Central IT Ops, Data Asset Management and Security Live 45 mins
    Ivan Tsarynny, CEO and Co-founder, Feroot Security
    In today’s complex organizations, they often have a centralized IT Operations team that works with Data Owners, GRC, and Security teams. The rate of change and the dynamic nature of web applications has outstripped the human capacity to analyze and respond.

    These teams use many modern frameworks and methodologies such as Cloud services, NIST, MITRE, OWASP, CIS, DevOps, and PCI; and tools that make it possible to deploy and maintain data integrity and make operations easier. However, these frameworks, methodologies, and tools also cause complexities which makes it difficult to identify issues and hone in on probable root cause before customers are impacted.

    In this session, we will be discussing how IT service management, Data Owners, GRC, and Security teams can collaborate better, enhance business continuity and provide resolutions faster.
  • Four secrets to ITIL and DevOps Compatibility Recorded: Dec 3 2020 52 mins
    David Cannon, Executive Vice President, Nfiniti3
    A marriage brings together two individuals with their own personalities, strengths and flaws. Successful marriages take compromise and commitment to build on the strengths and overcome the flaws.

    This presentation describes why many ITIL and DevOps practitioners have been at odds with other, and asks “can and should the two approaches ever be married?” and “If so, how do we make the marriage work?”

    The presentation will focus on 4 secrets to compatibility, and gives specific examples of:
    • When to use ITIL or DevOps approaches
    • How real organizations have used them
    • Where combining the two approaches does NOT work

    Compatibility Secret #1: The Personality Test
    Compatibility Secret #2: The Common Goal
    Compatibility Secret #3: Playing to Each Other’s Strengths (and acknowledging flaws)
    Compatibility Secret #4: Resolving Conflicts

  • DevOps/ITSM Continuous Operations: The sum is greater than the parts Recorded: Dec 3 2020 47 mins
    Terry Brennan, Managing Director, Orasi
    It can feel like DevOps and ITSM are from different ends of the universe. However, to achieve ultimate success in either, they must be part of the same world. We will explore how DevOps and ITSM fit together and need each other to achieve true continuous flow that will drive the successful organizations of the future.

    In this webinar we will cover:
    - Alien Worlds (DevOps, ITSM and Lean)
    - Continuous (meaning in DevOps/ITSM worlds)
    - Connecting Points (building the bridge for DevOps and ITSM)
    - Marrying DevOps/ITSM
  • DevOps and ITSM – we need to talk Recorded: Dec 3 2020 43 mins
    Barclay Rae, Barclay Rae Consulting
    The two contrasting worlds of DevOps and IT Service Management appear often to be in conflict and competition with each other. The reality of course is that both are needed for successful service delivery – and they complement each other. There is a need to find ways to work together and use the best parts of each approach in harmony.

    In addition, there is much that people from both backgrounds can learn from each other – for ITSM professionals there is much to gain from using modern techniques for delivering work and projects with speed and agility. For DevOps professionals there is much to learn from ITSM’ers about how to manage organisational and people change.

    This session lays out some clear practical options for how the two can work together – with practical tips on how to get going.
  • Do you, DevOps, promise to marry ITSM? Recorded: Dec 3 2020 39 mins
    Daniel Breston, Daniel Breston Ltd
    Daniel Breston will chaperone the couple through their marriage rituals and then act as a counsellor during their wedded bliss to help them overcome the challenges all foresee during their marriage.

    Imagine two people want to get married. They are very different in terms of language, culture, things they like to do, the ways they behave, and their friends. Their parents have different thoughts on who their children should marry based on their past experiences.

    A dream made in heaven? Bets on how fast the divorce will occur? You read that ISTM underpins DevOps and they should lead a long life together. Their children, they happy couple have discussed this will be called Agile, lean, Kanban, Digital and Metrics. These children will go the best clouds for learning and will benefit from 21st century education. Together they will create an online store full of services and products that the world will cherish.

    Of course, it could just end in a ugly divorce and bankruptcy! But as we have just come out of lockdown in the UK, let’s hope there is a happy ending!

    To ensure this the family must discover:
    • Why Agile misbehaves and how to help Agile become a valued community member
    • Why lean is such a tease, but how overtime, becomes the glue that holds the family together
    • How Kanban becomes a learned instructor teaching all of their friends (customers, staff, vendor partners) how to help the family create value from their online services
    • What Metrics adds as with a quick mind alerts the family on the satisfaction and happiness they have in their family, for their customers and the community
    • How the neighbours (stakeholders, product owners, Cxx) feel about the family and discover that actually they can make or break the wedded bliss
    • Find out how the evil Regulators and Vendors want to end this marriage and how the family reacts
    • See how Digital changes everything making the family ready for the 2021 and beyond

    All of the above you will learn in this session.
  • Are Chatbots Dead? Learn how Chatbots have evolved into Conversational AI Recorded: Dec 2 2020 53 mins

  • ITSM Alignment: Business and Technology Working Together Recorded: Dec 1 2020 60 mins
    Patrick J Slattery, Fordham University GSAS; John Granato, Tradesman International and Tony Cioffoletti, BTAG
    Every business is different but there are some common points of failure to avoid when it comes to successful ITSM. There are certainly some difficult technical break points and challenges, but mature IT shops develop the talent, methods, and tools to address technical challenges. The more common points of frustration and failure are the result of misunderstanding and misalignment between the business and IT. We all recognize that IT and the business can end up with different priorities and sometimes they do not seem to be communicating in the same language.

    To effectively streamline configuration and change and release management IT will need to develop the ability to align with business to understand what is truly needed for success outcomes. This can involve understanding priorities at the board of directors and senior executive levels as well in addition to the input received from local subject matter experts and power users.

    This workshop will address leadership and teaming solutions to common challenges. Participants will learn from case studies and the collective experience of senior managers how to understand the answers to some important ITSM questions, including:

    • Who is in charge? And why?
    • Is the direction real?
    • How complex have you made the solution?
    • Who reaches for the check? – How to engage the business economically.
    • Are you realizing the full benefits of using a target state architecture and roadmap?
    • Who Is setting the pace?
    • What are the “The Moments” and how do we deal with them?
    • When do we declare victory?

    The workshop presenters each have decades of experience in the design, implementation, and maintenance of complex IT solutions for large businesses. They bring a strong complement of IT, Finance, and business expertise. Raising your awareness of the concerns addressed in the workshop will not only help you to be successful in your current role but it will help to prepare you for more senior roles in your career.
