  • A/B testing is a method that allows you to determine changes to a website that will lead to increases in KPIs of interest. In this talk we go through good practices when implementing multiple A/B tests at the same time, methods of dealing with conflicting test results, and deciding for how long to run a test. We'll finish off making a point about the importance of A/B testing, by sharing a story of everything that can go wrong when you don't A/B test.
  • Les "Masterclass" sont une série de webinaires durant lesquels différents services de la plateforme AWS sont présentés sous un angle technique.

    Durant cette session, nous parlerons d'Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), un service utilisé par des centaines de milliers d'utilisateurs d'AWS, et fournissant bien plus que de la capacité de calcul.

    Durant cette session nous survolerons rapidement les concepts de base d'Amazon EC2 pour nous concentrer sur des cas pratiques plus avancés, tels que l'automatisation des déploiements, la configuration, le contrôle des coûts, et les bonnes pratiques d'administration.

    Thèmes abordés :
    • Techniques d'exploitation d'Amazon EC2
    • Fonctionnement des "Amazon Machine Images"
    • Gestion du trafic réseau entre les instances avec Elastic IPs, Elastic Network Interfaces, Security Groups et Network Access Control Lists
    • Métriques d'exploitation avec Amazon CloudWatch
    • Principe de fonctionnement et cas d'utilisation des instances Spot

    Pour qui?
    • Pour les développeurs
    • Pour les architectes, et les administrateurs systèmes qui ont des connaissances de base sur AWS.
  • For many IT Service Organisations the selection of their ITSM toolset is one of the most important, and expensive, decisions they can make. Causing huge disruption and extra work as staff are moved from one system to another. The ITSM toolset is like the engine that drives an IT department and its ability to ensure work is prioritised, integrated and moved between support teams. It is utterly critical to the running of an IT department, but if its so important why do so many IT departments only keep a toolset for 3-5 years before moving to another one and starting the process again?

    Join Peter Hubbard, Principal ITSM Consultant at Pink Elephant, as he shares his experiences on what happens during an ‘out of the box’ toolset implementation program, along with his advice and guidance on avoiding typical pitfalls that many implementations could easily avoid.

    Learn about the critical importance of People, Process and Product working in harmony to make sure that your toolset selection and implementation program delivers real business value quickly.

    Learn why ‘Out of the box’ is a dangerous phrase, and there is no such thing in the real world. Peter will be join by Michael Jenkins, a veteran toolset implementer with over 20 such projects behind him as they discuss what happens in an ‘out of the box’ implementation.

    They will discuss how to pick a toolset, the value of use cases, what happens on the vendor ‘demo day’ and what sort of actions you can be undertaking prior to the chosen vendor starting their implementation in order to speed up the process and make sure that your most expensive ITSM decision returns real value.
  • Savvy marketers spend a lot of their time analyzing big data, on the lookout for exciting new insights which can translate into action items and strategic advantage. Unfortunately, “giraffes” in their data – portions of data which dominate the rest of it – often hide important insights and lead to erroneous strategic decision making. In this webinar, we will discuss how to spot giraffes in your data and how to make sure they’re not misleading you.
  • Openstack has been gaining momentum in the IaaS space for some time now. It is a great example of Open Source collaboration and many contributors (more than 15,000!) coming together to make new technology.

    Often, large vendors and the organisations that represent them are seen as incompatible with the Open Source model, particularly in the storage arena. Big Tin is not required.

    In this presentation Glyn Bowden will show what SNIA can offer the Open Source community, the importance of standards and where SNIA are already contributing.
  • Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?

    Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
    Join this webinar as:
    •You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
    •You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
    •You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security
    Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.

    Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it. Register now for this 30 minute webinar.

  • Today’s IT professionals need security firewalls that do more than just packet filtering and stateful inspection. It’s critical that network pros redefine which metrics will actually ensure their security solutions will not be a performance bottleneck. This webinar digs into today’s firewall solutions, exploring their capabilities and providing pointers for selecting the solution that best meets IT security and performance requirements.

    What You Will Learn
    Why packet filtering and IPS aren’t the only performance metrics that matter
    The performance impact of running multiple security services
    How to select in-line security products that meet today’s multi-function security needs
  • Feedback and survey research is about asking the right questions of the right people at the right time. If we can master these three things then the likelihood of delivering action- oriented information to your “clients” (whether internal, like senior management, or external) increases significantly. However, impediments to good survey design are on every corner.

    Join this webinar to learn more about:

    ** The Importance of Collecting Feedback
    ** The Worst Survey Crime
    ** How to Right the Wrongs
