  • With 40% of time at work spent on administrative chores, inefficient communication is a big problem in business. Find out how to use tech to reduce wasted time in meetings, spend less time in your inbox and improve the way your company collaborates.

    About the presenter: Ray Gillenwater is the Co-founder and CEO of SpeakUp (getspeakup.com) an Enterprise Collaboration platform that enables collaborative problem solving and ideation. A student of Communications and a former executive at BlackBerry, Ray will share his experience and recommendations to help improve communication at your company.
  • A lot has changed in the way we communicate for business. A decade ago, most organizations had employees who came to the office every day, used desktop computers and desk phones, and stopped communicating for work when they went home.

    Today, people communicate for work anywhere, anytime, and on any device. Per Forrester, sixty-six percent of employees use two or more mobile devices for work. And according to Frost & Sullivan, nearly 25 percent of employees work from home or the road. What’s more, the desk phone is not the only business device. Based on a RingCentral survey, 35 percent of employees are using their mobile phones for work even when they are in the office. And nearly 80 percent of employees text for business, with 32 percent reporting that they’ve even closed a business deal via text.

    Even with these undeniable business behavior changes, the vast majority of companies haven’t optimized their communications infrastructure for mobile workforces or BYOD.

    Join this webinar to get ahead of the pack and learn the benefits of a cloud communications solution that supports the new world of work.

    •Understand the trends driving mobility and behavior changes in the work place, with Melanie Turek, VP of Research for Enterprise Communication & Collaboration, Frost & Sullivan.
    •Get the real story from a business that has addressed their mobility needs first hand from Adam Fishman, director of growth and operations for Lyft, a community ride-sharing service.
    •Hear how a cloud communications solution is addressing several challenges businesses face in the new work world from Nisha Ahluwalia, VP of product marketing at RingCentral.
  • We all want our families and homes to be safe with the convenience of remote monitoring, but do these smart home security devices really make our families safer or put them at more risk by inviting easier access to our homes electronically via insecure Internet of Things? In a follow-up to HP’s 2014 report on the Internet of (Insecure) Things we explore the security of popular off-the-shelf connected Home Security Systems and discuss various testing techniques we used in our study along with recommendations for manufacturers, developers and consumers.
  • Mobile is changing the way we work in the enterprise. Today’s workforce is demanding the ability to access and share business files from any device. In this webinar learn why Fortune 5000 companies select Syncplicity to achieve the promise of mobile productivity and solve the “Dropbox” problem.
  • From unobtrusive advanced malware detection technologies to automated threat response and actionable mobile-friendly dashboard – manage security from any device, any time, ESET will present new solutions for securing your endpoints and new ways to manage them.

    Jen Kavanagh: EVP, General Manager (US); Beamly

    Abstract:
    The biggest apps and the most successful enterprises do things differently. Mobile marketing automation is how Subway Surfer improves monetization. It's how Starbucks engages deeper with its customers. And it's how Plants vs Zombies gets you back.

    We surveyed 375 mobile developers with over 900 million monthly average users to find the best mobile marketing automation platforms. Then we analyzed 1.8 million apps in Google Play and the iOS app store, conducted 17 live interviews, and surveyed 19 MMA providers.

    The result is the most complete report on mobile marketing automation available.
  • With 75% of enterprise users reporting that they use their cell phones for making work calls, the inevitable question we must ask is, "can we just run our business on cell phones and ditch the PBX?" In this webinar, we will review the massive changes in the wireless landscape that have made this viable in the past 3 months, the solutions that make it possible and what implications this has for the modern BYOD organization.
  • Most IT providers have offers related to big data, cloud, mobility and security, and companies are looking at IT as the way to reduce costs and be competitive during an economic crisis. Investments in IT trends such as cloud computing and big data will rise thanks to a new player in the game: the business departments. This analyst briefing will show why companies are investing in IT, and what will change in 2015.

    Why you should attend:

    - Discover how many companies will adopt big data, cloud, mobility and security in 2015
    - Understand the current scenario of these trends in Latin America
    - Learn what will be different in 2015 regarding each trend
  • Join us for a 30-minute live session every Friday, where we’ll tour the RingCentral interface, discuss the latest innovations and features available on the RingCentral platform, and share best practices on leveraging cloud communications for your business. This session features a live demo of RingCentral Office and an open Q&A session led by a Sales Engineer.

    This week tune in and learn about how RingCentral integrates with Google Gmail, Calendar, Docs and more.
  • Advances in Unified Communications are being driven in large part by the necessity of enabling a remote and mobile workforce to be as connected as those in the office. As a result, communications platforms must evolve into truly unified, personal solutions to meet the needs of the changing mobile workplace. Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst with ZK Research, will discuss his new white paper titled “Mobility Drives Need for Personal Unified Communications.” In this webinar, Zeus will detail why a shift to a Personal UC strategy is critical for increasing productivity and engagement with employees, customers and partners, and provide recommendations IT leaders can put in action today to gain and maintain a competitive edge.

    We do not want Big Data! We want the right data to answer the right questions!

    Data is changing our world. Predictions using massive data not only have improved many products. At the same time, they have, in some industries, disrupted business models and created new ones.

    What does an organization need to do to generate a new competitive advantage out of data? The answer might be surprising. “Change the state of mind.”

    Companies often do not need big data. They essentially want small and actionable advice. Some predictions will need big data to surface relevant information, but not all. The key to success for many companies, however, is to enable “data­driven” decision making. Lutz will discuss the steps he has used in starting and developing his own company (later sold to WPP), as well as how he leads LinkedIn’s data science team.

    A) Change the state of mind!
    Enable everyone in the company to ask “data driven” questions. Lutz will show how this is the hardest part of the on­going exercise, but why most businesses actually can achieve this with their current strategic abilities. Using examples we will learn what is the best way to formulate the “Ask”.

    B) What data?
    Data can be a source of disruption & innovation. Business models change because new data sources and enhanced computational power allows new services or improve old services. But which data to use? Domain knowledge is often more important than having “Big Data". Lutz will introduce a framework on how to think about data.

    C) How to build a Data Team?
    How can organizations build up data capabilities within your team. Contrary to the common discussion that a data scientist are not ‘hard to find’. Lutz will explain how every company can create a data science organization by just mixing the right skillets.
  • Human-Centered Design and Data Science May 27 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    When you hear someone say, “that is a nice infographic” or “check out this sweet dashboard,” many people infer that they are “well-designed.” Creating accessible (or for the cynical, “pretty”) content is only part of what makes good design powerful. The human-centered design process is geared toward solving specific problems. This process has been formalized in many ways (e.g., IDEO’s Human Centered Design, Marc Hassenzahl’s User Experience Design, or Braden Kowitz’s Story-Centered Design), but the basic idea is that you have to explore the breadth of the possible before you can isolate truly innovative ideas.

    In this talk, I'll share some lessons we've learned from the human-centered design process and how those lessons can be used by other data science practitioners.

A paradox exists; the ability to manage the explosion of data, connectivity, and devices as well as the impact on skills, products and services, regulation and security, and the organisational value chain network and wider market dynamics. Mark will discuss the findings of PA’s digital barometer and explore the ramifications for leaders in their pursuit of digital excellence. He will demonstrate how digital thinking has led to new forms of digital value through new business strategies that address how experience and outcomes. Providing connected spaces is enabled by understanding how data and its usage in context is shaping the new organisation of the future.

    Takeaways
    · How does your business shape up in the digital economy.

    · What holistic considerations really matter in digital thinking for your business and the role of data in the new digital enterprise.

    · Case studies of practical evidence of how to join up business spaces with an integrated thinking approach
  • Memory is the New Disk: Fast Data Analytics with Apache Spark Mar 12 2015 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Apache Spark (http://spark.apache.org/) is emerging as the next generation of technology for data processing. Compared to Hadoop MapReduce, Spark is easier to use and maintain, increasing its popularity, which is due to the fact that it excels in in-memory computations (many times faster than MapReduce). This also allows Spark to be the de-facto platform for machine learning algorithms at scale.

    In this presentation, the Spark platform will be introduced to the audience by:
    • Walking through interesting features of Spark
    • Comparing and contrasting it with Hadoop
    • Highlighting Spark use cases and its ecosystem
  • Storage for Big Data: Its Way More than JBODs and DAS Mar 12 2015 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Analytics clusters, typified by Hadoop, commonly use just a bunch of disks (JBOD) embedded in cluster nodes to create a storage layer. However, because users now want to run multiple applications within these clusters, this layer has to take on the characteristics of persistent storage where data can be maintained for long time periods. This webinar will review, evaluate and discuss implementations of persistent storage now emerging for Big Data that go well beyond just bunches of disks.
