InformationWeek: Open-Source Software Supply Chain Security and Management (Jan. 31st)
IT - CxO Events

Most businesses will retain a work-from-anywhere strategy for the near future. To combat this, IT departments must go beyond stopgap measures implemented during crises and adopt more strategic approaches.

Join us to learn:
  • How to utilize innovative technologies to provide application performance and control.
  • What connectivity options are available based on Zero Trust, including VPNs, VDI, DaaS, or new solutions.
  • What role new services, such as SD-WAN or SASE, can play in facilitating work-from-anywhere.

Cloud has become a must-have architecture for enterprise organizations - and many are looking for new ways to implement the technology more effectively... Join subject matter experts from Insight and Dell Technologies on Tuesday, Jan 24th at 1:00 PM for a private, hour-long, interactive virtual roundtable.

To get the most out of services, capabilities, and capacity, spend visibility has become a key priority. As cloud adoption continues to increase, a new priority is gaining traction: as-a-service solutions that match operational needs, maximize the value of cloud infrastructure, and drive business value.

Rather than functioning as a replacement of cloud, Storage-as-a-Service can work alongside it. Private and public clouds both have their benefits - but they don't need to be mutually exclusive. As workloads become increasingly distributed, it can be overwhelming to manage several infrastructures at once; by deploying as-a-service solutions from trusted partners, companies can access a consistent cloud experience at the scale they need. From on-premise to public cloud, storage-as-a-service simplifies operations without reducing performance.

DevOps: Finding The Right Cloud For The Right workload (Jan 24th)
Tuesday, January 24th, 2023: 11:00 AM to 12;00 PM
Join this program to learn what DevOps professionals seek from their cloud providers, what's driving them to spread workloads across multiple clouds and how companies like NSoft approach different cloud providers for their workloads to deliver the best experiences for their customers.

The cloud continues to mature, and DevOps and IT leaders are increasingly settling into a world where workloads are spread across multiple cloud providers. Knowing which cloud platforms fit best for which workloads gives developers the power to choose the right cloud for the job and maximizes the return on investment of cloud infrastructure spending.

A new Techstrong Research report reveals how developing a multi-cloud strategy has become more deliberate today. The report's findings and other recent research from Akamai show that developers and business leaders are searching for ways to solve growing cost, performance and scaling requirements when choosing the best cloud provider for their workloads.

A new class of cloud and datacenter infrastructure is emerging into the marketplace. This new infrastructure element, often referred to as Data Processing Unit (DPU), Infrastructure Processing Unit (IPU) or xPU as a general term, takes the form of a server hosted PCIe add-in card or on-board chip(s), containing one or more ASIC's or FPGA's, usually anchored around a single powerful SoC device.

The OPI project has been created to address these questions and to foster the emergence of such an open and creative software eco-system for DPU/IPU based cloud infrastructure. The project intends to delineate what a DPU/IPU is, to loosely define a framework(s) and architecture for a DPU/IPU-based software stack(s) applicable to any vendors hardware solution, to allow the creation of a rich open- source application ecosystem, to integrate with existing open-source projects aligned to the same vision such as the Linux kernel,, DPDK and SPDK to create new APIs for interaction with and between the elements of the DPU/IPU ecosystem:

How can CIOs empower their developers without creating new vulnerabilities, fix critical bugs in code the business might not even know is running, and remain both secure and productive?

We know there will be more attacks like those on Solarwinds, Log4J, and Kaseya, and more compromises of open-source components like Apache Struts and OpenSSL. Software supply chain threats - both the malicious attackers and the accidents waiting to happen -- are now a fact of life. How can IT leaders stay ahead of them?

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • How to take stock of the many open-source components in your code.
  • What a software bill of materials can and can't do.
  • What tools can help identify vulnerabilities and integrate into development workflows.
  • Where automation can help.

Evaluator Group: Trends in Enterprise Data Protection (Feb. 7th)
Tuesday, February 7th, 2023: 11:00 AM to 12;00 PM EST
In this interactive discussion, Sr. Analyst Krista Macomber will cover key insights from our recent Research Study 'Trends in Enterprise Data Protection' and provide an outlook for 2023.

Data protection and recovery have become board-level priorities, as both the recognition of the value of data and the threat of cyber-attacks such as ransomware both rise. With this in mind, modern data protection must be able to serve not only core backup and recovery use cases; it also must be able to help to prevent and detect attacks, as well.

Krista covers data protection and management, with a focus on multi-cloud environments, for Evaluator Group. She brings approximately a decade of experience providing research and advisory services and creating thought leadership content, with a focus on IT infrastructure and data management and protection.

CIO's Future of Work Summit North America (Feb. 15th)
Wednesday, February 15th, 2023: 11:30 AM to 4;05 PM EST
It's 2023 - Do You Know Who Is Leaving Your Organization Next?

The millennial, Gen Z and Gen X generations make up 75% of today's workforce, and almost half don't plan to stay more than two years at their current company. Gen Z applicants have even higher expectations for purpose and meaning. The challenges are the same for organizations, no matter which side of the International border you're on.

If you aren't working - hard - to put all of your employees (remote, hybrid and in-office) front and center, your organization will find someone else who will.

CIO's Future of Work Summit will set your organization up for sustainable success!

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How cloud migration can impact security and ROI.
  • How an on-premises-to-cloud migration process begins.
  • What the benefits of cloud migration are (cost, flexibility, performance, and scalability).
  • Strategies to overcome cloud migration challenges.
  • How companies should prioritize deployment styles.
