New technologies and business models – or new ways to apply existing technologies and business models – are constantly being introduced.

There are numerous examples of how new entrants have disrupted existing markets and wreaked havoc on established businesses.

Digital business is often a common component of many of these disruptions. Some of the new entrants are not true disruptions, but rather, features or fads.

A fundamental shift is what defines a disruption, and it can alter the very core of value generation in many ways, some directly and many secondarily.

The ability to discern between fads, features and true disruptions is becoming critical as the rate at which new technologies and vendors are entering continues to increase.

In this webinar David Mitchell Smith, VP & Gartner Fellow (LinkedIn profileGartner bio)  explores the main challenges to manage disruption:

  1. To recognize,
  2. Prioritize and …
  3. Respond appropriately.

Discussion Topics:

  • Different types of disruption and strategies for surviving and thriving
  • How to tell whether a new technology is a feature, fad or disruption and plan strategies accordingly
  • How to cultivate the three disciplines of recognition, prioritization and reaction to create a practical approach to correctly positioning features, fads and disruption in their enterprises

The pace of software development requires you to work faster and smarter.

Whether you are just getting started or have millions of installations, understanding how your products are actually being used can help you to prioritize development while meeting customer requirements.

In this webinar, Keith Fenech, VP of Software Usage Analytics at Revulytics, will show you how collecting and analyzing software usage data can help developers make faster, more efficient decisions at all stages of the development lifecycle.

Learn how software usage analytics can help software developers answer key questions like:

  • Are my users actively using this feature or can we deprecate it?
  • Which versions, platforms, languages or architectures are my users on?
  • Where should I focus my QA efforts?
  • How should I prioritize bug fixes?
  • What issues are my beta users coming across, but not telling me about?

Does BYOD mean Bring Your Own Device?
Or should the D actually stand for disaster?

The promise of greater productivity by allowing employees to access corporate systems and data using their own smartphone is huge.

But so are the risks if proper controls are not put in place to manage employee owned IT assets with the same rigor as companies should manage the corporate owned IT assets.

Employee devices can easily be used to transport data to file sharing applications such as Dropbox, meaning that control of corporate data assets is gone.

Then there is the matter of compliance:

  • Are employee owned devices in compliance with federal laws
    • such as HIPAA or Dodd-Frank?
  • And what about overtime?
    • If employees have the ability to extend their work day by using their own devices, does it open a company up to unauthorized overtime pay?
  • There are also IT security implications.
    • For example, is the employee keeping their device up to date with the latest security patches?
    • And just because the employee paid for the device doesn’t mean there is no cost to the company.
      • Software licenses on the server side most likely will be required and your service desk may have to support a wide variety of device types.

In this webinar  Craig Boswell will look at the impact of BYOD and how it affects your IT asset management program.

Presenter: Craig Boswell, (LinkedIn profile) BS EE MBA President of HOBI International, plays a key role in developing HOBI’s processes and procedures for data security, asset tracking and asset disposition services.  As a keynote speaker and author he  discusses end of life electronics management techniques and technologies and  broad variety of subjects, including data security,  and design for disassembly technologies. Craig is the Chair of the ISRI’s Reuse and Services committee and was an active stakeholder participant in the EPA’s R2 (Responsible Recycling) certification standard process.
