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

It’s not Private, Public or Hybrid: It’s Service Constellation and Cloud Corp

Will Venters will focus on the strategic use of cloud computing, questioning whether our focus on private and public sets too great an emphasis on the organisational boundary. By adopting a view that we should instead look at firms as service-constellations and challenge this boundary, he will look at how future organisations may capitalise on a move to cloud. This is not however a utopian picture, with significant challenges and risks of such a move highlighted and explored.

Dr Will Venters' research and teaching focuses on distributed systems development, cloud computing and knowledge management. He is a lecturer in information systems at the London School of Economics. He has researched and advised on the organization of distributed work and systems in various organizations including government-related organizations, the construction industry, financial services, health and research. He has undertaken consultancy for a range of companies, including recently producing (with two colleagues) a series of five reports on Cloud Computing for Accenture. He has published articles in journals such as the Journal of Management Studies, Information Systems Journal, Journal of Knowledge Management Research and Practice. He is an associate editor of the Journal Information Technology and People.

  • Key trends and application security risks from the 2018 AppSec Risk Report Recorded: Aug 28 2018 49 mins
    Alexander Hoole, Manager, Software Security Research, Micro Focus Fortify
    Fortify on Demand analysis shows broad vulnerability in apps. The majority of web or mobile applications we analyzed had at least one critical or high severity issue. Furthermore, 1 out of 2 apps had critical or high vulnerabilities not covered by the OWASP Top 10 2017.

    The biggest and most severe data breaches that have affected both the public and private sectors all operate at the application layer. That’s why it is important that organizations take a holistic view and include application security and vulnerability assessment as part of their software development program.

    In this webinar, we will share results from our recent primary research study that reveals:
    • The top application security risks
    • Where these risks originate
    • How to remediate these risks
    • Best practices to protect your business

  • How to Deploy Your Service Desk Seamlessly, Flexibly and Quickly Recorded: Jul 24 2018 25 mins
    Nev Ward and Noel Hopkinson, Senior Solutions Architects
    While ITSM is often delivered via software as a service (SaaS), businesses today are looking for different deployment options. The world is in flux, and strategies evolve.
