    AUTOMATION AND MULTI-CLOUD MANAGEMENT WITH NUTANIX CALM
    09:30 - 10:10

    Driving automation and self-service across private and public clouds is the strategic goal for many CIOs. While many of the fundamental building blocks have long been available, they have been missing a unified, full-stack, orchestration layer that works across multiple cloud environments. In this session, we’ll explain and demonstrate Nutanix Calm, which provides cloud operators with a one-click self-service capability to automate application provisioning and lifecycle management across multiple environments, making the entire IT infrastructure more agile and application-centric.

    Networking for the Cloud Era—Simplified Cloud Connectivity with SD-WAN
    10:10 - 10:50

    10 years ago, Amazon opened up its cloud computing platform to the world, and dramatically changed the way organisations consume compute and storage. Networking hasn’t kept up with these changes, and unfortunately, even with 38 different vendors now claiming to offer software-defined networking, a lot of these are still heavily reliant on the CLI, and cloud integration is cumbersome at best. Securing and interacting with cloud providers – and even interconnecting multiple services, from different platforms –  is becoming more critical. Many organisations are adopting a ‘cloud-first’ strategy. In the session, we’ll demonstrate an easier way of extending the enterprise network into the cloud.
    • How to painlessly and securely integrate networking and WAN optimisation with IaaS platforms and how to interconnect services from different IaaS platforms
    • How to integrate cloud-based security without touching a router or firewall
    • How to escape the CLI

    Closing the Visibility Gap | How to Combine Application & Infrastructure Monitoring to Accelerate IT Transformation
    10:10 - 10:40

    What leaves visibility gaps and demands higher levels of time and expertise from IT professionals? Having different consoles for application code visibility vs. IT infrastructure management. The convergence of application and infrastructure monitoring offers significant opportunities to drive IT transformation using IT service management, DevOps and/or a combination of both.

    Watch this on-demand webinar, 'Closing the Visibility Gap | How to Combine Application & Infrastructure Monitoring to Accelerate IT Transformation', the first of a 'shift-left' series that will highlight how you can meet the emerging requirements across both the ITSM and DevOps lifecycles.
    In this session, discover how to:

    • Get a baseline of monitoring in an IT transformational context based on ITSM and DevOps
    • Find out how converged application and infrastructure visibility can help accelerate IT transformation efforts with ITSM, DevOps or both
    • Understand how monitoring can accelerate cultural change and accelerate IT value delivery to the business without flying blind
