IT networks are staged for massive changes in 2014. With users and endpoint devices proliferating and with threats to systems and data becoming more sophisticated and pervasive, organizations of all sizes must be prepared for what lies ahead.
Attend our “Top Trends Driving IT Security in 2014” webinar to find out what these trends mean for your IT network, and what you can do to stay ahead of the game.
•What kinds of attacks to expect from a new generation of exploits
•How botnet operators now cloak their command and control operations
•What types of organizations and platforms will be targeted by ransomware
•Why Near Field Communication capabilities open the door to new exploits
Why traditional security is no longer effective against new, sophisticated threats
By extending your data center with cloud resources, it can become more flexible, more scalable and more elastic. But how can it be done?
In this webinar, we give an overview of network and connectivity options, from Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) to VPN and Direct Connect. We will also talk about use cases like backup and archiving or disaster recovery
Good practice frameworks and their consultants tell us that our processes precede the tool. After all: “A fool with a tool is still a fool.”
Practitioners know it seldom works this way. We often don’t know what we want. We don’t have enough data to justify a particular process or process improvement. Our requirements are changing constantly, and past preferences are outdated.
The solution is simple: ignore the consultants, and be willing to adapt to the tool. This doesn’t mean caving in to the tool vendor. This presentation will provide plenty of advice on implementing, improving, and getting the most of your tool, based on years of implementing and managing ITSM automation tools for dozens of organizations in every industry with multiple tools.
As private and public clouds continue to advance, one of the most strategic questions for IT executives is determining which cloud model is best suited for the applications in your portfolio. Forward-thinking IT organizations are examining the business context for their applications to assure that these cloud sourcing decisions are made consistently and quickly.
Join Elliot Young, Director of Transformation for EMC as he shows you how a tool-based approach to cloud workload evaluation can increase your business agility at any budget. Discover how many companies have met their requirements and best practices for how you can too, in this online presentation.
The word cloud is much over used, and the debate continues as to whether it should be cloud, or cloud computing. In either case, the main focus is on how the cloud computing market is evolving and where should enterprise customers invest their money? Ovum has conducted many surveys and the results indicate the move toward hybrid cloud computing is fast becoming the top choice for many enterprise customers.
Join Roy Illsley for this webinar and discover why cloud computing is evolving and how it fits in with a wider IT transformation agenda. Roy will share the results of Ovum's latest global adoption survey and discuss the importance of the findings. The key adjacent technologies and the impact on cloud computing will also be explored. Attend and learn how you can put IT transformation and cloud computing in to context.
We all have our preferences when it comes to what type of car we drive. The reality is that a manual and automatic are equally good so it depends on what you are after. The same applies to IT Service Management. In today’s cost-cutting approach to business, it is easy to assume that an ‘automate everything’ approach is the way to go. But can automation be too much? Can customer service suffers? This session will look at considerations that should be accounted for when developing a strategy to automate services.
Digital channels continue to be a key focus for 2014, but as pharma continues to look ahead to a digital future is there more we can do to enhance the impact of digital strategies?
This free webinar will examine how digital strategy decision making has evolved and present examples, both good and bad, from the industry’s current approach, before examining how you build a digital strategy that's fit for the future.
It will also encompass Hall & Partners research showing the high expectations pharma's customer have of digital sales and communications technology and how they associate it with more interactivity and innovation.
Despite these findings physicians feel tablet detailing (‘t-detailing’) is not having a greater impact than traditional paper-based
So, given the huge potential for getting closer to our customers and tailoring our interactions with them the research begs the question, what more should we be doing with digital?
The webinar will also explore how evidence-based decision making can enhance the digital strategy for your brand.
Speakers from Hall & Partners and digital communications agency Ebee will discuss how decision making currently informs digital strategies, what learnings can be drawn from experience to date and explore how pharma companies could optimise their investments in digital.
The Open Data Center Alliance Cloud Maturity Model (CMM) provides an end-to-end visualization for how the use of cloud in the enterprise develops over time (adoption roadmap) and how the enterprise’s ability to adopt cloud-based services within defined governance and control parameters increases.
As it matures, the use of cloud becomes more sophisticated, comprehensive, and optimized. The CMM plots the progression of structured cloud service integration from a baseline of no cloud use through five progressive levels of maturity.
This presentation will walk attendees through the maturity model that the ODCA has developed and how they can apply this model to their organization creating a comprehensive plan to fully integrate cloud into their operations.
