DevOps: Are We There Yet?

When DevOps surfaced as a concept 10 years ago, the economy was struggling, AWS was a toddler, servers lived in office closets, and deploys were a monthly — or quarterly — Saturday exercise. DevOps was a novel concept, focused on breaking down silos and reducing conflict between developers and operations folks. It was simple, yet difficult to understand and implement. A decade on, I find myself like a kid in the backseat asking, “Are we there yet?” And even if we were, how would we know? This talk explores the state of DevOps, cloud expansion, and what’s next for modern engineering organizations.

Achieving 100% Of Your ROI On AI Projects Within A Year

Gartner has stated that 85% of Artificial Intelligence projects within fortune 500 companies will fail to yield tangible results in the upcoming years. Yet, we expect to see AI projects grow by up to 50% in the next 5 years.* So, how do you ensure that your AI initiatives don’t fall into that 85% and produce ROI? Data Scientist and CEO of SFL Scientific, Michael Segala, will join Red8’s Field CTO, Brandon Kaier to discuss how to achieve ROI from your AI projects and how to accelerate that timeline.

Sensitive Data Governance with a Remote Workforce: On-Hands Lab

The rush to move to a 100% Work-from-Home approach brings with it a host of risks, security and compliance high among them. The chance that sensitive or compliant data ends up on a remote device outside of the corporate firewall is now much higher than it ever has been. Without knowledge of the existence of that data, firms will be exposed to exfiltration and compliance failures, which could cost them millions at the worst possible time. Commvault Endpoint Protection + Activate provides the information, analysis, automation, and remediation necessary to mitigate this very real threat.

How a File Archive Strategy can Save Millions in IT Spend

Unstructured data within organizations is growing at an unprecedented rate. With the explosion of data, IT admins are struggling to manage the growth and identify what is being used and not used. It is estimated that 40-60% of data on primary storage is no longer in use, but identifying that cold data and moving it to a lower cost storage tier has been impossible.

This webinar will outline the value of implementing a modern archive strategy that can save your organization millions in wasted IT spend, reduce your on-prem footprint, and provide a playbook on how to utilize your current infrastructure to deliver real savings to your organization.

A Successful Hybrid Multi-Cloud Strategy

The volume of data continues to increase at an explosive rate. Not only is it growing it’s also coming from many new sources. When petabytes are the new norm, longer retention cycles are required and there are a wide variety of public cloud options companies are challenged to build an effective hybrid-cloud strategy.
