CIO: How AI is Poised to Revolutionize IT Operations and Development (Nov 15th)
Monday, November 15th, 2021: 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Virtual

Join CIO contributing editor Charles Pelton and subject-matter experts from our roundtable sponsor, IBM, for a private, interactive, virtual roundtable.

As the pace of change in business accelerates, IT operations are becoming more complex. Now more than ever, businesses depend on the performance and availability of critical applications, interconnected systems and infrastructure to survive and thrive. Operations teams simultaneously must observe the full stack, allocate resources based on need, and proactively manage incidents.

That's why so many enterprises now look to artificial intelligence to drive value with a more automated approach to IT operations. The key is to build a flexible DevSecOps culture that's delivered through ChatOps, social coding, and an AI-driven approach to IT operations that spans modern hybrid cloud landscapes.

CIO: Next Gen IT Management: Mitigating Risk, Consolidating Tools and Expanding Observability (Nov. 15th)
Monday, November 15th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Today's organizations must manage a growing number of resources across multiple architectures. Complexity is growing exponentially: from multi-cloud to on-prem, applications running from the core to the edge, and the growth of north-south and east-west networks.

The solution lies in increasing observability across the entire IT environment with acute attention to mitigating risk. One approach is to consolidate your management IT tools to better integrate and manage systems to securely scale the business and serve customers.

CIO: Enterprise-wide Digital Strategies for Optimizing Omnichannel Experiences (Nov. 22nd)
Monday, November 22nd, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Consumer-facing organizations today face a complex challenge: Their customers expect them to know them as unique and be serviced across various journeys seamlessly, sometimes starting the journey in one channel and finishing it in another. Very few organizations, and definitely not the ones that have been there for a while, can afford to offer their service only through a single channel. As channels grow, the journeys get more and more fragmented.

CIO: Facing the SAP Deadline: S/4Hana and Migrating Your ERP System to the Cloud (Nov. 29th)
Monday, November 29th, 2021: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Many enterprises that rely on older on-premise ERP systems - especially those on an SAP platform - are looking to upgrade their systems and migrate to the cloud. (In the case of SAP there's the S/4Hana migration 2027 deadline.) At the same time organizations look to lower costs, simplify operations, and obtain greater resiliency.

That's why many look to AI-enabled, public cloud solutions - such as Google Public Cloud - as they consider their migrations. The key for many may be to work with a partner that can help with migration efforts without affecting day-to-day operations.

Recorded Future: How to Find and Manage Leaked Credentials on the Dark Web (Dec. 1st)
Wednesday, December 1st, 2021: 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Virtual

Cybercriminals love leaked credentials. In fact, leaked credentials are involved in 61% of breaches. But leaked credentials can be difficult to discover due to the fact that cybercriminals trade them on the dark web and other underground channels, well outside the traditional visibility of many organizations. And taking action on discovered credentials is easier said than done thanks to large and messy data sets and varying internal requirements.

Identifying and managing leaked credentials doesn't need to be difficult. In a live webinar on Wednesday, December 1 at 11 AM ET, Recorded Future experts John Wetzel and Trevor Lyness will take a deep dive on the leaked credentials market.
