Taking a Proactive “OpsSec” Approach to Enterprise Security
Effective IT Operations teams don’t just rely on their Security peers to provide guidance around enterprise security. Building off the old adage of “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, join us as we discuss our new research detailing how businesses can identify and respond to threats quicker by employing an “Operational Security” or “OpsSec” approach to enterprise security.
David Gehringer from Dimensional Research will discuss the findings from a global survey of Operations professionals that provide valuable insights into how ITOM teams can improve their processes to ensure better security. And, learn how Micro Focus takes a proactive view on OpsSec to deliver better outcomes around risk management in the data center.

Automation everywhere. That’s what’s required to meet today’s IT operational goals. To that end, join our product experts to discuss what’s trending now in the world of automation. Low-code/no-code automation, but also infrastructure as code. Orchestration—why we need more of it. RPA robots go mainstream. And, what if you could CI/CD everything, including your process orchestration?
• Top trends and hot topics in automation.
• New use cases for connecting teams, tools, and technologies.
• Customer stories we can learn from.
In recent years IT environments and, therefore, networks have become considerably more complex. We’ll review a recent survey from Shamus McGillicuddy, Vice President of Research Network Management at EMA, showing these concerning trends, which he says requires a rethinking of network management.
We’ll also cover recent innovations in our Network Operations Management solution that address these issues.
Join Brian Kaplan, Director of Network Management, to learn what you can do and the improvements our customers have seen.

According to 2021 State of the CIO 2021 report (http://view.ceros.com/idg/spring-issue/p/22), driving business innovation is for 38% of CIOs one of the top activities they plan to spend more time on in the coming years. Other initiatives such as redesigning business processes, aligning IT initiatives with business goals and improving IT operations and systems are atop the list as well. Is this news? Not really but the future of work and the way of working is going to be different and one thing many organizations are realizing is that it will bring additional challenges for IT and the business. How to keep an increasingly remote workforce productive, engaged and enabled to deliver excellent products and services to customers is causing strategy discussions across the business and technology teams. For many leaders, the vision to empower their workforce through the integration of technology and the ability to work from anywhere will accelerate the adoption of Enterprise Service Management. Making the leap from automating IT services towards enterprise services is not difficult – if you possess the right characteristics to transform.
Join us for an hour session where we share with you how such a transformation is possible. Eveline Oehrlich, VP and Research Director at Research In Action and Vesna Soraic, Head of Product Marketing at Micro Focus will share their insights on why you should transform towards ESM to thrive in these changing times. Key topics of key skills and culture, top areas of focus, and ideas for how to make the leap towards Enterprise Service Management will be discussed.
Key insights into:
• The future of work has accelerated the need for service thinking and leading change efforts
• Optimization, automation, and standardization will need to be balanced with driving business innovation
• How Enterprise Service Management can support a happy and healthy workforce by transforming existing enterprise services

You can’t effectively manage what you don’t know about. That’s why gaining full visibility of all your resources—including cloud resources—is so important.
But that’s easier said than done when you’re looking at different configuration views offered by different cloud platforms. When you need to capture critical info that multiple teams are adding into cloud tags. And when you’re simultaneously tracking on-premises and remote assets.
Join our webinar to learn how Micro Focus Universal Discovery and CMDB deliver complete visibility across multicloud, on-premises, containerized, and work-from-home environments. The result—faster cloud migration and stronger management of your IT assets.

We all want IT to work like a car—just push a button and let it take you where you need to go. By simplifying the complexity of IT transformation, IT automation platforms get you closer to that reality. But not all platforms are created equal.

Micro Focus OPTIC (the Operations Platform for Transformation, Intelligence and Cloud) is different.
Join our info-packed session to hear what sets it apart. You’ll learn how it helps you deliver the self-driving IT your business craves. And how it empowers you to transform without drama by building on what already works.

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed all businesses towards delivering new digital services. Analysts predict accelerated digitization by three to four years. As we recover, returning to the old normal is insufficient – we must use this disruption to give business and IT users alike the autonomy they crave to get work done.
In recent years, leading companies have been adopting Enterprise Service Management (ESM), starting with an enterprise service desk and progressing to automated service delivery and support for non-IT services. But ESM is not just implementing ITSM concepts into HR, facilities and other corporate functions. It is about giving users the freedom to work the way they work best.
For that to work, your ESM approach is going to need a level of automation and AI that exceeds the pre-pandemic old normal. Join our webinar to learn how to:
• Create a single, enterprise service catalog with automated fulfilment, including public cloud services
• Act on every enterprise service request without building technical debt with entirely codeless workflows
• Automate your processes with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) across teams, tools and environments
• Leverage embedded AI to deliver more resilient services, everywhere
• Create the business case for ESM
Register now and find out how enterprise service management can help your business adapt to the new normal with resiliency for the future.
