While interest in Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence/ (ML/AI) has never been higher, the number of companies deploying it is only a subset, and successful implementations a smaller proportion still. The problem isn’t the technology; that part is working great. But the mere presence and provision of tools, algorithms, and frameworks aren’t enough. What’s missing is the attitude, appreciation, and approach necessary to drive adoption and working solutions.

The webinar features GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust and panelists Jen Stirrup, Lillian Pierson, and special guest from Cloudera Fast Forward Labs, Alice Albrecht. Our panel members are seasoned veterans in the database and analytics consulting world, each with a track record of successful implementations. They’ll explain how to go beyond the fascination phase of new technology towards the battened down methodologies necessary to build bulletproof solutions th
Nearly all cyberattacks must cross the network, but security analysts often struggle to make quick sense of traffic at scale for hunting and incident response, trapped between data-starved logs (e.g. Netflow) and too much data (full packets) to analyze in time. What if instead there was a “Goldilocks’ for network data?
This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in network traffic analysis, featuring GigaOm analyst Simon Gibson and a special guest from Corelight, Steve Smoot. They’ll discuss the evolution of network analysis and explain how open-source Zeek (formerly Bro) came to be the network traffic analysis tool of choice for security analysts to make fast sense of their traffic.
We’ll dive into Zeek’s creation at Livermore Labs and discusses some of the challenges that come with using it in large, fast network environments and explain how Corelight enables organizations to quickly take advantage of the power of Zeek at scale. In this 1-hour webinar, you
A huge array of BI, analytics, data prep and machine learning platforms exist in the market, and each of those may have a variety of connectors to different databases, file systems and applications, both on-premises and in the cloud. But in today’s world of myriad data sources, simple connectivity is just table stakes.
What’s essential is a data access strategy that accounts for the variety of data sources out there, including relational and NoSQL databases, file formats across storage systems — even enterprise SaaS applications — and can make them all consumable by tools and applications built for tabular data. In today’s data-driven business environment, fitting omni-structured data and disparate applications into a consistent data API makes comprehensive integration, and insights, achievable.

Hear the views of 250 network professionals in this Webinar with GigaOM Research and Juniper Networks. Like-minded professionals speak on effective cloud adoption, the potential of software-defined networking and network automation.
Perhaps the biggest transformation in enterprise IT since the public cloud emerged is the move toward “mobile-first” application development. As mobility continues to become the new enterprise standard, developers are looking for frameworks that provide the tools they need to create innovative mobile applications without sacrificing their existing investments.
While there are proven, enterprise-ready frameworks and platforms for developing and deploying traditional desktop applications, the mobile application development landscape is still evolving. Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) attempts to fill the gap between traditional application platforms and mobile applications. It is the new middleware, exposing APIs and functions that enable developers to rapidly build new mobile apps and mobile-enable legacy enterprise applications.
We’ve heard it before. A data warehouse is a place for formally-structured, highly-curated data, accommodating recurring business analyses, whereas data lakes are places for “raw” data, serving analytic workloads, experimental in nature. Since both conventional and experimental analysis is important in this data-driven era, we’re left with separate repositories, siloed data, and bifurcated skill sets.
Or are we? In fact, less structured data can go into your warehouse, and since today’s data warehouses can leverage the same distributed file systems and cloud storage layers that host data lakes, the warehouse/lake distinction’s very premise is rapidly diminishing. In reality, business drivers and business outcomes demand that we abandon the false dichotomy and unify our data, our governance, our analysis, and our technology teams.

GigaOm is seeing a new breed of services that promise to accelerate the mobilization of existing enterprise applications and business processes. Early mobile-application development solutions (MADP) were resource-intensive, requiring custom client code for each supported platform, as well as an on-premise middleware layer to connect mobile clients to enterprise backend systems. In this new model, code-free, configuration solutions - aimed at business analysts and lines of business- are revolutionizing the landscape, consolidating tools and services to simplify cross-platform enablement, and reducing time to deploy and cost tremendously.
This report describes mobile-application configuration (MAC) tools, articulates their business value and suggests conditions under which they may be a good choice for an organization.
Hyperconvergence is now at the core of many IT infrastructures. No matter the size of your organization, you need to protect infrastructure, applications, and the data necessary to run your business and compete at its best.
There are several solutions to protect your data, retrieve and reuse it when necessary. Ease of use, speed, and efficiency are at the base of modern backup tools, but there is now more to take into account if you want to transform a liability into an asset.
In this free 1 hour webinar, GigaOm analyst Enrico Signoretti will be joined by Alan Conboy from Scale Computing and Jon McCarrick from Acronis to talk about modern data protection strategies and solutions aimed at simplifying infrastructure while increasing the value of data.
In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:
Why data protection should be integrated into your HCI
Data protection options: Snapshots, backups, DR and beyond
New threats and new solutions
Backup as a tool to make more of your data
This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in cybersecurity and automated remediation, featuring GigaOm analyst Jon Collins and a special guest from Puppet, Jonathan Stewart. The discussion will focus on how enterprise security and operations teams can significantly enhance their response to security threats via a collaborative, automated approach to resolution.
Cybersecurity often feels like an asymmetric battle — while on one side, cybercriminals appear to manage their efforts efficiently on the dark web, enterprises often deal with the consequences individually, reliant on manual processes and tools. So, what can we learn from the perpetrators about how to coordinate a response to security threats when, or before, they happen?
In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn:
How cybercriminals and hackers work together to create and disseminate security threats
What current challenges are faced by enterprises as they look to respond
What options exist to deal wi
This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in IT infrastructure and cloud featuring GigaOm analyst Mark Thiele and special guest from Packet, Jacob Smith. The discussion will focus on what can be done if a business has a need or desire to run application environments outside public cloud; and, in the age of public cloud adoption, what can companies do to remain competitive from an IT perspective.
Most companies aren’t professional data center or infrastructure builders, and they shouldn’t have to be. This is in fact a driver for cloud adoption. Price, Performance, Proximity, Pride and Politics are reasons why enterprises might need more control at times over their infrastructure.
This 1-hour webinar will explore:
The considerations an enterprise must make when looking for a private cloud solution
Examples of what others have done with managed private cloud
If Managed Private Cloud can be cost-competitive with Public Cloud or on-prem IT.
The high-level defi
In a second-quarter 2014 Gigaom Research survey of 500 IT decision-makers at large U.S. companies, we identified strategic buyers as those who report using cloud resources for new business and revenue streams as opposed to those who don’t.
