  • Applications, Hyper-Converged and the Data Center Jul 21 2015 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Leah Schoeb, Solutions & Performance Manager, Intel
    Hyperconverged technology is a term used to describe what some
    vendors are calling 'infrastructure in a box' or 'all-in-one solution.' Virtualization and storage
    administrators understand that it can make sense to couple virtualized
    storage with a virtualized server instance in some cases to create a
    virtualized infrastructure.
    However, there are several issues to consider before plunging into a hyperconverged deployment.

    This session will discuss the applications benefiting from a hyper converged solution and how it fits into your data center.

  • Turn Incident Notifications into an Anywhere Engagement Recorded: May 28 2015 61 mins
    Doreen Jacobi, René Bormann, Derdack
    Companies invest a lot into systems that monitor and manage IT environments or customer service levels.

  • Which Flash is Best for MS-SQL? Server-side, hybrid or all-flash? Recorded: Apr 30 2015 62 mins
    George Crump, Storage Switzerland
    For many organizations MS-SQL is the backend to many of their mission critical applications. The environment provides a cost effective foundation for an organization to develop custom designed solutions that drive the business forward. As MS-SQL has risen in importance, the demands on the storage infrastructure have also increased. MS-SQL needs a high performance, well-protected storage system that is also cost effective. To meet these requirements many organizations are now looking at flash storage.

    Join experts from Storage Switzerland and Tegile Systems as we discuss the various options that storage and MS-SQL administrators have as they begin to look for new ways to meet the MS-SQL challenge.
  • DevOps Culture Shift: Expanding On-Call Responsibilities Recorded: Apr 30 2015 54 mins
    Todd Vernon, VictorOps Founder & CEO
    “I just write the code and throw it over the wall. It’s up to Ops to make it work” -- when Devs care only about coding, Ops and customers suffer.

    “It’s not my job to test code. If there’s a problem, talk to QA.” -- when Ops care only about stability, innovation and customers suffer.

    DevOps represents cultural change. Whether it’s the change of resistant engineers that don’t want to be on-call or the change of Operations teams to have more empathy towards their counterparts writing code, to the willingness of executives to embrace a culture of automation, measurement and sharing. Organizations must overcome the culture war to be able to approach the agility and productivity that organizations following a DevOps model gain. The faster they can get there, the faster these organizations can take the competitive edge away from traditional enterprises.

    In this webinar, featuring guest Forrester Research principal analyst Kurt Bittner, we will look at:
    - The current state of organizations - a separation of Devs and Ops
    - The how of DevOps - DevOps is a culture, not a product
    - The benefits of DevOps - happier customers

    As part of our panel discussion, we will answer the following questions to help you get started building a DevOps culture within your organization:
    - Why change the status quo?
    - How do I align two disparate groups?
    - How do I remove the obstacles that separate Dev and Ops teams?
    - Will customers see a difference if devs are on call?
    - Can IT start to think differently?

In this session, we’ll discuss five key ways the right platform can reduce complexity and accelerate the app-building process, all while growing your competitive edge.

  • The Potential Business Value of Low-latency Flash Recorded: Apr 22 2015 28 mins
    Rob Commins, VP of Marketing, Tegile Systems
    Have you ever seen a manager succeed in taking away an employee’s MacBook Air and replacing it with a traditional hard disk PC? Or tried to migrate application users from a flash-only array to a cheaper traditional hard disk (HDD) array? Have you ever had to remember to save your work on a flash-based smartphone?

    Join us and learn ways to help justify faster storage, both from an IT budget and an application user productivity perspective:

    •Fast and consistent system response times from any device, application, or system they are using improve a user’s individual productivity.
    •The vast majority of systems with very fast storage run better and take less time to manage.
    •Flash provides more productive ways of designing systems. For example, continuous saving of every keystroke is impossible with hard disk PCs, but is the norm in flash-based mobile devices.
  • Smart Lifecycle Management for SAP Recorded: Apr 21 2015 66 mins
    Brad Kallaway, TurnKey, David Pickrell, Intellicorp
    Improving application quality and minimizing business risk is made all the more challenging by the continuous stream of support packs, enhancement packs, and custom transports needed to align SAP applications with the growing demands of the business. These changes require a constant need to test. Unfortunately, your testing resources don’t increase at the same rate, hence the need to find new ways to test smarter and ultimately, do more with less.

    Join us for an informative webinar where we will share how impact-based analysis and scriptless testing work together to provide a more intelligent, dynamic approach to SAP testing. We will review how next-generation technology can be used to help you:
    Accelerate Testing - using pre-built content and pre-built test cases to start testing your critical business processes sooner.
    Test across the enterprise - support your SAP applications as well as legacy, packaged and custom solutions; leveraging one platform, one process.
    Automatically detect changes to your SAP systems – identify which effected business processes are most "at risk”; and quickly update test sets for improved test coverage.
    Reduce test maintenance - Save up to 80 percent of your time and costs with intelligent auto-maintenance features.
