Today’s world is driven by software. Applications rule the tech space and they are increasingly relying on machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) to make better, faster decisions. But there are some technologies that don’t really take full advantage of AI. Can an algorithm replace a person troubleshooting? Is something at is as much art as science able to leverage the power of a computer to get the job done? Is it true that AI Can’t Do Much For Wi-Fi?

Pure Storage Spotlight: Orchestration is almost synonymous with containers nowadays. One popular opinion is that maybe the reason enterprises haven’t adopted containers quickly is that people are hungry for a way to orchestrate containers that fits into their overall environment. Is this the reason why containers have yet to be widely adopted? Follow this discussion, featuring Jon Owings – Principal Solution Architect at Pure Storage, and Cormac Hogan – Director and Chief Technologist at VMware, and decide for yourself.
The world is encrypted today. Our traffic is being protected from beginning to end so our identities and data are safe. But how safe are we in reality? What about the traffic that we want to see? How can we protect against threats when everything is using TLS to hide from our tools? Is there a solution to figuring out how to see the unseen? Is encryption ruining network security?
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are extending the capabilities of our technology at a rapid pace. Or so we have been led to believe. But what is ML really giving us? What good is it to our enterprise? Is there a use case that shines above all others? Or is it just marketing fluff? This episode of the On-Premise IT Roundtable discusses how Anomaly Detection is the only good use of ML in the Enterprise.
Pure Storage Spotlight: Those of us who have been following storage and server architecture are pretty excited about NVMe and various things over fabrics. So far, it’s been a challenge to bring NVMe-oF into the enterprise datacenter. Does the release of vSphere 7 mean that this technology is finally ready for prime time? Follow the discussion and decide for yourself.
Lots of us are experiencing the joy of working from home right now and many people are also experiencing the fun of virtual events. How are these events working?
A quick non-official poll:
“I am never leaving my house again!”
“I despise virtual conferences.”
“An in-person interaction can’t bring more to the table than my computer screen and I can bring (to the kitchen table).”
“Events are a thing of the past and are being replaced with the almighty virtual option.”
Who’s right? Join us as we’ll discuss the various ways in which we can weigh a virtual vs in-person event, and why there are some things that just can’t be replaced.
Computers never work. I can’t check my email. The Internet is always slow. No matter what I’m doing it seems like Information Technology is never the way I want it. Everything is completely broken. Or is it? Join us as we’ll discuss the various ways in which IT can be operating properly but still not as users want and why there is a huge difference between slow and broken.
Modern technology has focused on delivering value. The current shift away from hardware to software means that companies need to recognize how they deliver that value. In order to ensure they are responding to their customers’ needs in the best possible way, they need to charge appropriately for the features that are being used. So, we ask the panel today, if feature-based licensing for infrastructure a good thing?
Enterprise AI seems to be a buzzword we are having trouble escaping. Is it following us, or just getting smart enough to know the paths we tread to shake it? The roundtable faces this pursuer and decides if we should take away its boastful title, call it something else, or if we have crossed the threshold far enough for it to lay claim to its moniker. Is Enterprise AI a bunch of BS? Follow the discussion and decide for yourself.
Security will always be a bit of a treadmill that organizations need to keep moving on. But that treadmill got kicked into overdrive as a result of COVID-19. Organizations that seemingly had well-implemented security policies in place now have to account for everyone working from home. This changes the threat surface from devices used, to how traffic is routed, and often new services being brought online. So will COVID-19 be remembered as a security nightmare? The roundtable discusses the implications and why companies need to be focused on the humanity in their midst in order to stay secure.
