Cloud Analytics: Why it matters in a Hybrid Cloud Management solution
In today’s IT environment, speed, reliability, and quality are essential. IT professionals must be able to address enterprise needs consistently and at a moment’s notice. That means being able to deploy applications, servers, and system performance at the speed of business, while also supporting and optimizing critical business processes. Our customers address these needs with a mix of on-premises and cloud services – a hybrid cloud.
Understanding the entire lifecycle of services including server and middleware provisioning, patch management and software deployment while ensuring compliance with consistency and flexibility is a major challenge for IT managers. At the same time they are being pressured to demonstrate value and alignment to the business.
Register for this webinar and gain insight into an innovative approach to Cloud Analytics and reporting. We’ll cover topics such as costing and pricing of services, evaluation of vendor performance, cloud implementation ROI, how to gain better insight for deciding which resources to use to deliver a service and how businesses are consuming your services.

Whether you are already hosting applications on Amazon Web Services, or looking to expand your enterprise footprint into public cloud services, security and compliance will be top of mind. Like the doors and windows in your building, your web-based applications are the most visible points of entry for cyber attackers.
Therefore they are also the most targeted from cyber attacks, and you need to ensure you have a solid security foundation to be able to continuously monitor and protect your workloads from compromise – especially as vulnerabilities and attacks against your applications are completely up to you to monitor, discover and remediate, and not your cloud service provider.
Register for this impactful webinar presented by James Brown, Director of Cloud Solutions Architecture who will review in detail the Five Reasons why you need to protect web-based applications in AWS:
1.Web applications are the number 1 attack vector in AWS
2.There is no one type of web application attack
3.Successful web attacks can cost you ……… a lot
4.Security responsibility is shared with AWS, but you need to understand what they don’t cover (your application security)
5.Your customers care
Amazon Web Services has provided companies of all sizes with on demand elastic IT infrastructure services in the cloud totaling more than 50 services.

IT organizations face rising challenges to protect more data and applications in the face of growing data security threats as they deploy encryption on vastly larger scales and across cloud and hybrid environments. By moving past silo-constrained encryption and deploying encryption as an IT service centrally, uniformly, and at scale across the enterprise, your organization can benefit from unmatched coverage— whether you are securing databases, applications, file servers, and storage in the traditional data center, virtualized environments, and the cloud, and as the data moves between these different environments. When complemented by centralized key management, your organization can apply data protection where it needs it, when it needs it, and how it needs it—according to the unique needs of your business. Join us on November 25th to learn how to unshare your data, while sharing the IT services that keep your data secure, efficiently and effectively in the cloud and across your entire infrastructure.

Rarely does a shrink-wrapped product have everything a customer needs. So the question becomes, how flexible and extensible is the product? An extensible product allows you the ability to add what isn’t available out-of-the-box. And you can do so with internal FTEs, HP professional services, HP partners, and freelance consultants. By extending the ability to create missing parts, it puts the control back in the customer’s hands.
This presentation will showcase the power and flexibility of HP’s UCMDB and UD developers framework, through screen shots and brief explanations of solutions developed:
· Dynamic discovery and mapping of software components without knowing anything to start (use cases include: app-dev inclusion in ITSM disciplines, data center migrations, security vulnerability)
· Reporting perspectives specific to data set (use cases: include disaster recovery, data center migrations, data comparisons with CMS product upgrades)
· Dynamic calculations for Total Cost of Ownership with applications (use cases include: charge-back, asset management)

Join us to discover security that is agile and emphasizes protecting the interactions between our users, our applications and our data.
Monitoring is the most crucial aspect of IT Ops, but the expectations of monitoring have evolved. Mobile apps are now the forefront of every digital business.

The cloud fundamentally changes how IT is measured and managed. In the past, IT Organizations could simply cross-charge their costs and report on service-level agreements (SLAs). Today, business customers can go to Amazon, Azure or other providers’ Web pages and see prices for servers, storage, databases and more. This means for the first time, IT needs to have public cloud-comparable costs for service options. Only by doing this, can IT generate a cost-effective strategy that spans public and private cloud. In this session, we will discuss how IT can build up its dedicated and private cloud costs with the HP Asset Manager & HP CMS - UCMDB Automated Service Modeling solutions. We will also demonstrate how to put cloud costs together.
