As automation lightens the load on IT operations personnel, and the DevOps cultural shift brings dev and ops together, some ops people are worried about their jobs.
Furthermore, as DevOps takes hold, other roles in the organization are set to transform. DevOps potentially reworks project management methodologies, so what about the project managers? DevOps flattens organizations, so should middle managers be worried?
In this webinar, industry analyst and president of Intellyx Jason Bloomberg will set the stage with some broad observations about the organizational impact DevOps is having across enterprises.
Next, Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst Business Media will join Jason for a thought-provoking, in-depth discussion of how DevOps impacts individual's roles within the organization, with some first-person stories of Hearst Business Media’s DevOps transformation.
You will learn:
- Potential starting points to mapping your own DevOps transformation
- What non-technical groups and roles need to be part of any DevOps initiative – and methods for effective inclusion
- New organizational approaches to structure and collaboration that empower instead of threaten
- How to better manage business changes with DevOps strategies
The cloud is here to stay. However, that also means more and more companies are realizing that they’ve built two separate IT teams and are struggling to deliver quality services without a unified view. A true hybrid monitoring solution is the answer to this common problem.

The functionality required by systems continues to increase and the digital semiconductor vendors are doing a pretty good job keeping the power requirements stable. In some cases, they’re even dropping the voltage levels to what considered at one time to be noise. From a power-management perspective, how do system designers deal with this need to squeeze every watt from the shrinking battery cells? That’s what will be covered on Day 2 in the three-part series of Embedded University: Analog/Power. Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Everything is digital. Industries are transformed as products and services become “software-defined”. Organizations win by putting engaging applications in the hands of customers and insightful data in the hands of employees.
This new style of business requires a new style of IT. Core IT to deliver the backbone of services to run business operations, and Fluid IT to be a partner in building brands, experiences, and loyalty.
IT faces a challenge – how to be efficient and consistent, as well as experimental and innovative.
Join this webinar to learn the 5 key success factors:
As digitization shapes every aspect of modern business, it is having an equally significant effect on the expectations of IT. Brands now have to embrace the age of the digital solution, whilst still maintaining the cornerstones of experience, security and loyalty. What has
emerged is a bimodal IT paradigm, where both traditional Core IT and modern Fluid IT are essential to the IT environment of a successful modern business.
A traditional IT system offers slower development but stable compute and solid security. Fluid IT is a reaction to the demands of the modern world—it is all about speed and agility as concepts are taken to market with ever-increasing speed, starting with minimal viable products. But this is not a case of old versus new, or good versus bad; successful businesses are those that learn to implement both.
Imagine a single, enterprise-level platform for all performance testing. Globally distributed engineers sharing a common testing infrastructure. All licenses consolidated into a single, easily accessible pool. Simple, single-instance installation and upgrade.
Imagine no more. Join this webinar to see the new innovations in Performance Testing from HP.

Andy Mackay, HP Software EMEA and Muneer Mubashir, HP Software WW
IT organizations are tasked with delivering end-to-end services for infrastructure and applications, while concurrent revolutions in cloud computing, mobility, big data and security are redefining what enterprise users expect from their applications and IT services.
IT professionals need to manage the complexity of accelerated delivery of services across traditional IT Data Centers or cloud environments—whether it is a full stack of infrastructure from storage, network, servers to databases or right up to the application layer. As an IT organization, success depends on efficiently orchestrating operations across functional silos, eliminating the hand-offs, delays and errors that lower the end users’ experiences.
So join Andy Mackay and Muneer Mubashir as they discuss what the Orchestrated Data Center really is.
What value does your IT Service Management solution provide to your business? To your users? How do you measure service quality and efficiency? In a world where IT performance data is spread across many systems, using spreadsheets or other manual tools is error-prone and inefficient. On the other hand the data to answer these questions is there – it’s in your service desk and other solutions. What if you could access this operational performance data coming from different systems and tools through a single lens and get meaningful answers from it?
Join this session to learn more about IT performance KPIs and how we can help you demonstrate value to your business and IT users.
Michael Pott and Kees Van Den Brink, HP EMEA Enterprise Software
The IT world is changing rapidly, but latest mega trends like cloud and mobility do not change the set of challenges and drivers IT organizations are constantly facing: cost, quality and compliance – even more so with the fast shift of traditional first-level tasks to more self-services.
Automation can help tackle these. But what does automation really mean? What should be automated? How would you automate? And what are the benefits you can expect?
Join this session to discuss the process – integration – automation triangle and then learn about examples like change management and request-to-fulfill to discuss some starting points for a pragmatic approach for automating ITSM.
Your enterprise depends on actionable insight being securely delivered to the right person, at the right time, to influence what they do or the decisions they make. To stay ahead of the competition, become more profitable, and improve your operations, increasingly requires a real-time fusion and analysis of large volumes of structured machine (sensors, embedded software, etc.), unstructured-human (social media, documents, audio, video, etc.), and traditional transactional data.
Join this webinar to hear HP's strategy to harness the power of Big Data, including HP's latest innovations with HAVEn (Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica, Enterprise Security, and n-apps), the industry's first comprehensive, scalable, open, and secure platform for Big Data. Hear stories of innovative companies already putting these ideas into practice.

We will cover topics including capacity and utilization planning, application to spindle performance, as well as centralized storage resource management and reporting. You will get practical advice that you can use to determine the value of a storage resource management solution.

Myles Suer, HP IT Performance Management, Product Strategist
Recently, a major IT management player said that IT needs “figures to measure performance and improve processes”. Clearly, we need to have concrete goals and the ability to manage against them. In order to align better, take cost out, and become more predictable in their service management, we need to have concrete service delivery goals as well as the ability in real time to know when you are not delivering.
In this webinar, we will cover the importance of having an ITSM Scorecard as well as what types of goals our customers say you should have for typical service management metrics.
