  • How Micro Focus PlateSpin Strengthens Operational Agility Mar 27 2019 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Alain Salesse, Senior Solutions Architect, Micro Focus
    Your IT run budget is shrinking and you need a more agile way to deliver application services to the business. You could move to software-as-a-service. You could redesign your apps to leverage container or platform-as-a-service technologies. Or, you could opt for the fastest, least risky transformation option of all—re-hosting.

    This webinar is all about re-hosting. More specifically, it’s all about the Micro Focus PlateSpin re-hosting solution and what it can do for you. Here’s what you can look forward to learning:

    • How PlateSpin stands apart from other re-hosting approaches, including data centre consolidation, (re)virtualisation, the adoption of or switching between managed service providers, and the adoption of public or private cloud services.

    • How PlateSpin re-hosts entire server workloads between physical, virtual, and cloud platforms with minimal risk, downtime, and effort.

    • How PlateSpin helps enterprises and service providers deliver large-scale transformation projects on time and within budget.
  • Accelerating GDPR: Beyond compliance to better business and customer service Mar 4 2019 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    David Kemp, Micro Focus, Scott McIntyre, Objective Corporation UK Ltd, Nigel Smith, Objective Corporation UK Ltd
    With GDPR requirements in effect for almost a year, most Councils are examining their business processes to ensure personal data is handled lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner. But beyond simple compliance, there are much greater benefits and opportunities to be realised from a well-governed information ecosystem.

    With strict timelines and reporting requirements, managing requests for information using manual processes are often resource intensive and lack consistency, transparency and visibility. Automating these processes and extending the reach of information governance can provide a springboard for enhancing productivity and performance more widely.

    Join the live webinar on Monday 4 March at 10:00am, where we’ll discuss:

    •The impact of GDPR on local government to date - the highs and lows
    •How you can automate manual tasks to simplify the process of responding to information requests
    •Why delivering transparency and accountability can lead to savings in time, effort and cost
    •How you can protect sensitive content and collaborate with external agencies securely in the digital environment
    •Why process monitoring and real-time dashboard reports are a critical success factor for organisational change
    •Discover simple steps to take control of your growing information ecosystem.
