How To Meet, Manage, and Monitor Application SLAs in Physical and Virtual Environments
An InformationWeek Webinar
IT organizations insist on receiving an SLA for services delivered by a service provider. In today’s increasingly complex IT environment of mobile applications, virtualization, cloud, and SDN, organizations have been reluctant to offer an SLA internally to their organizations’ business and functional managers.

However, most report that the internal SLAs they offer are relatively weak and do not have the tools to effectively manage them.

Today, most load balancers/application delivery controllers (ADCs) work on a best-effort approach and are shared by several applications. Most importantly there’s no real ability to ensure SLA.

Attend this webinar to learn why managing internal SLAs for one or more business-critical applications is extremely important to your business functions and IT organization and how you can utilize Radware to deliver, monitor, and manage application level SLA and web performance optimization even while under cyber-attack.

The Mobile Business Mindset
An InformationWeek Webinar
Mobile devices have changed how we communicate, read, shop and entertain ourselves -- and they're changing the way we do business. Tablets and smartphones with slick apps tapping into backend cloud services make existing business processes more efficient while enabling brand new ones. But mobile apps are a different breed -- you can't just reformat a desktop client for a phone or expect developers to jump from a client-server project one week to a mobile app project the next. The differences between mobile apps and conventional Windows clients, or even web applications, are far more than skin deep. Yes, the touch-versus-keyboard interface, APIs, and programming languages are new, but that's small potatoes. In this webinar, we'll outline the attributes of mobile app functionality and development that distinguish it from traditional PC or even browser applications and what's necessary to make a business mobile ready.

The Automation Games: Why Your Cloud Vendors are Holding You Back
An InformationWeek Webinar
Too many enterprises embrace cloud computing just to avoid having to allocate virtual machines manually, and then they call it a day. Once the server is the launched, it still requires human intervention to install and configure software and get the machine running properly -- and then more human intervention every time the operating system or software needs an upgrade. Sometimes the site even needs to go down to apply a new service patch. What is this-1995?

Vendors want you to believe they're going to save you but they're the biggest problem -- their technology still lives in the data-center virtualization world of the past decade, and they're just trying to stay afloat -- they're not interested in helping companies implement good cloud automation strategies. This webinar will walk through what is possible today in cloud automation, and outline how you can get there, with or without your vendors.

You will learn:

 - The three levels of cloud automation, from virtualization to orchestration;
 - The tools that you can use to orchestrate your cloud; and
 - Questions you can ask your vendors to assess their ability to help you.
