EDT: 10:00 a.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. | BST: 15:00 It has been more than a decade since cloud computing emerged. Digital business is accelerating cloud adoption, with some infrastructure and operations (I&O) organizations being at the periphery of this adoption. In this webinar, learn where cloud computing is complementary or competing with I&O and how your organization should evolve to accommodate and thrive in this environment.
EDT: 10:00 a.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. | BST: 15:00 Multi-factor authentication (MFA) helps defend against account takeover attacks, the most common type of cyber attack. A new crop of cloud-based MFA services provides support for strong authentication for a variety of scenarios. In this webinar, we discuss cloud-based MFA that can balance trust, user experience and cost. We also review commonly supported MFA use cases, multi-factor authentication methods, and adaptive access functionality that is increasingly demanded by security-conscious organizations.
EDT: 10:00 a.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. | BST: 15:00 This webinar provides eight steps to use when planning negotiations with major and emerging vendors. These steps enable you to ask the right questions that reveal the right detail so you can analyze proposals from a cost-optimization and risk-mitigation standpoint. In this webinar, we focus on engaging the right IT and business stakeholders as part of the negotiation plan and strategy to optimize these deals and balance cost, value and risk.
EDT: 10:00 a.m. | PDT: 7:00 a.m. | BST: 15:00 Most midsize enterprises do not have the size and volume to achieve desired contract terms with their providers. However, that does not mean that no negotiation levers exist to achieve better results. The appropriate individuals in these organizations need to identify these levers or opportunities and create leverage where there is none. In this webinar, we provide actionable advice as well as a Q&A session to answer your questions with regards to this topic.
Addressing software as a service (SaaS) change management is ranked among the top five SaaS challenges for technical professionals. Current software change management strategies are unsuitable for SaaS solutions as changes are typically rapid and inconsistent. New change management strategies need to be formed specifically for a SaaS portfolio and take into account that the majority of changes will be pushed and controlled by the SaaS provider, not IT. This webinar will discuss the Gartner agile and risk-oriented approach that enables IT to perform SaaS change management focusing only on the upcoming changes that may disrupt the business and impact enterprise users.
Edge computing represents an emerging topology-based computing model that enables and optimizes extreme decentralization, placing nodes as close as possible to the sources and sinks of data and content. As a decentralized approach, it is a perfect complement to the hyperscale cloud providers' tendency towards centralization, where they take advantage of huge economies of scale. The risk for enterprises is designing and implementing next generation networks, systems, and applications, but ignoring the possibilities of deploying at the edge, and ignoring decentralized benefits in favor of a centralized data center or hyperscale cloud provider model only. Join this webinar to get a better understanding of edge computing and how your organization can leverage it while avoiding risks.
Controlling and optimizing IT costs is critical to achieve a more modern and digital IT environment. In this webinar, we'll review the key factors required to assess and manage cloud costs. We'll explore a process of optimization from the earliest assessment of workload suitability for cloud, through migration of the application, to operations. This session will cover the opportunities to use cloud computing as a means to optimize legacy IT processes and workloads, while establishing a cost-effective environment for future innovations.
Cloud computing, in its many forms, has become an integral part of IT. Even after over 10 years of cloud hype, confusion is still rampant. This webinar explores best practices to help IT leaders, CIOs and IT professionals develop strategies to take advantage of cloud as they shift to digital business.
