DevOps: Continuous Deployment (July 11th)
Monday, July 11th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
Often platforms are customized to the point where it is difficult to automate application deployments - each platform is its own unique "snowflake." However, the growing complexity of application development projects coupled with increased reliance on software to drive digital business transformation initiatives and concerns over software supply chain integrity requires organizations to revisit their approach to application delivery.

In this discussion, we will share more about these challenges and how to better approach them.


SNIA: Storage Life on the Edge: Accelerated Performance Strategies (July 12th)
Tuesday, July 12th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
Edge is the new frontier of compute and data in today's world, driven by the explosive growth of mobile devices, work from home, digital video, smart cities, and connected cars. An increasing percentage of data is generated and processed at the edge of the network. With this trend comes the need for faster computing, access to storage, and movement of data at the edge as well as between the edge and the data center.

CIO Roundtable: How to Be Successful in a Multi-Cloud World (July 13th)
Wednesday, July 13th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
More and more organizations are utilizing more than one public cloud solution at the same time. This often happens in conjunction with hybrid cloud, on-premise, and edge architectures. The complexity of implementation and management of so many disparate architectures can be daunting. The answer for many is to seek a unified, single-view, secure cloud management platform. The key lies in the consistent application of policies across all workloads for optimal performance, service delivery, low cost, and security.

IDC: How to Implement Observability: A Proactive Path to Maximize Reliability and Growth for your Business (July 14th)
Thursday, July 14th, 2022: 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM EDT
Leaders recognize that their tech architecture has now become their business architecture. Speed, scale, and resiliency of IT infrastructure and resources are top objectives for organizations as they look to the post-pandemic future, according to recent IDC research. Organizations increasingly implement observability as a proactive approach to leverage their architecture for improved customer and employee experiences and financial growth. Yet, many IT executives need practical insights to fully realize the opportunity.

  • What essential observability strategies and plans drive successful business outcomes
  • How organizations proactively prepare their architecture before a problem occurs
  • Best practices and recommendations for getting started with observability
  • Practical implementation insights for improved people processes and risk mitigation
  • Peer experiences in measuring the success of observability initiatives

SNIA: Kubernetes is Everywhere - What About Cloud Native Storage? (July 19th)
Tuesday, July 19th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Organizations are adopting containers at an increasingly rapid rate. In fact, there are few organizations that haven't implemented containers in their environment today. DevOps expect a flexible, seamless development, deployment and orchestration experience. With platform agnostic capabilities and a stateless container design, Kubernetes streamlines these processes - and with the contribution of persistent, cloud native storage, stateful information becomes reality along with advanced storage capabilities including features such as snapshots, rollbacks, etc.

CIO: Mainframe Application Modernization Initiatives in Support of Successful Transformation (July 26th)
Tuesday, July 26th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
In a 2021 IDC study that analyzed 446 businesses across the globe to measure the efficacy of migrating to cloud versus modernizing existing investments in mainframe systems and applications, the case for the latter won the day.

The study found that businesses that leverage their investments on the mainframe, while developing a modernization roadmap have an overall better outcome -- quantitatively and qualitatively -- than those that move off them. Replatforming, the researchers found, can be riskier and more costly than modernizing existing investments.

Security Boulevard: Effectively Tackling Hardcoded Secrets With A Secrets Management Maturity Model (July 13th)
Wednesday, July 13th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT
Hard coding secrets-usernames, passwords, tokens, API keys and more-is a risky practice that's been around for as long as developers have been writing code. This problem is far from solved. In fact, hardcoded secrets are increasing in prevalence due to modern microservice-based architectures in which comments and services need to authenticate with each other securely and establish authorization mechanisms.

Tackling the problem of hardcoded secrets is not something most organizations do overnight. Doing it right requires a combination of approaches, technology, processes and organizational buy-in. In this webinar, you'll learn how to build an effective secrets management program using a maturity model that helps you assess your current capabilities and plan your next steps.

  • How emerging technologies like AI and ML are being integrated into new hybrid working arrangements
  • The keys to improving employee experience by harnessing technology to evaluate satisfaction, engagement, and overall performance
  • How innovations and emerging technologies can contribute to a more human-centric approach to IT services

Recorded Future: Analyst Spotlight: How to Identify and Prioritize Your Attack Surface (July 14th)
Thursday, July 14th, 2022: 11:00 AM to 12:00 Noon
External attack surface management has proven to be an essential function for organizations of all sizes. Attack surface management helps organizations gain a complete picture of their cyber risk profile from the attacker's point of view, often enabling the discovery of previously unknown assets.

However, knowing what attackers see is only part of the equation. To effectively protect your organization, you also need to understand what attackers are using in the wild. Enter vulnerability intelligence. Vulnerability intelligence identifies which vulnerabilities are actively exploited so that organizations stay one step ahead of adversaries.

Dwell time grows - and with it - exponential damage to revenue, operations, and reputation. Join us as information security and business experts discuss how to define risk tolerance, share anticipatory risk strategies for business, and how CISOs and security leaders can enable them for success in their organizations.

(CS)2 AI Online Seminar: OT Vulnerability Management w/John Cusimano
Wednesday, July 13th, 2022: 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EDT
Virtual

Very few organizations have the opportunity to create a cybersecurity program from the ground up. Often, cybersecurity programs in the OT/ICS environment start out as rough translations of the IT program into the OT/ICS environment or initiatives resulting from an audit or incident. Assessing the as-is state of an organization's security posture is usually a combination of a maturity level assessment of their cybersecurity program along with a technical assessment of their implementation.

Best practices and resources to effectively manage and optimize your AWS costs
Tuesday, July 12th, 2022: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM EDT
Virtual

Please join us virtually on July 12th at 6:00 PM EST where Luis Garcia and Josue Martinez, AWS Solutions Architects, will discuss best practices and available resources to effectively manage and optimize your AWS costs.

As enterprise customers embark on their Cloud adoption journey, one of the challenges they face early on is not having a strong & effective plan around maintaining and controlling costs as they migrate, operate, and innovate in the cloud. Lack of good visibility into cloud spend can have an adverse impact to company's IT budget and timelines. We believe that having an effective strategy around cost optimization, observability, and effective controls will allow a company to shift their focus towards business innovation rather than cloud spend.
