While configuration management databases (CMDBs) and configuration management systems (CMSs) are usually discussed separately from discovery and dependency mapping (DDM), this webinar explores them together to reveal a surprising array of synergies. It will also deliver brand new insights on how application performance management, DevOps, SecOps, asset and change management are leveraging IT service modeling with an eye on both the present and the future. Based on extensive, global EMA research, the >IT Service Modeling in the Age of Cloud and Containerswebinar will also provide insights into geographical differences, role-related differences, and unique industry vertical perspectives on strategic objectives, purchasing priorities, benefits and obstacles relevant to making service modeling in all its dimensions a success. Join Dennis Drogseth, VP of Research at EMA to get research highlights, including:
- How AIOps and IT analytics, along with automation, are transforming service modeling deployments in terms of breadth of coverage, role-related support, success rates, and other factors
- Why cloud migration is becoming a dominant use case, but often one that’s still poorly addressed
- What are the administrative, organizational, process, and technology challenges inherent in CMDB/CMS and DDM deployments, when both are, on average, supporting five or more use cases
- What you should look for when investing in service modeling, with a specific look at the winning features and functions

In new research conducted by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), enterprises deploying automations saw over 50% improvement in efficiency. Thirty percent of enterprises using in-house automations feel that they are limited by the inability to create more complex automations and orchestrations that they could achieve if they invested in SOAR technology. On average, those deploying SOAR revealed that 15% of their existing processes and procedures have operational gaps. The survey also uncovered that 43% of organizations tend to underestimate the amount of time it will take to implement their SOAR automations after purchase. How can your organization take advantage of security automation and orchestration? Join David Monahan, managing research director at EMA, to:
- Get insights into EMA’s new research on security automation and orchestration
- Get best practice advice on how to avoid common pitfalls
- Discover how businesses have achieved significant levels of optimization in their SecOps teams—getting more done, faster—with the limited personnel they have

Application modernization and digital transformation are the driving forces in many organizations. These activities, however, are stressing scheduling and automation tools to the point at which many are looking for better answers. This global study was envisioned following research conducted in 2018, which uncovered that 37% of workload automation (WLA) users only began to use an enterprise-class WLA in the previous four years. EMA wanted to understand how many organizations remained that were not using an enterprise-class WLA product and, therefore, how much growth in net new users might be on the horizon. EMA included Asia in this research for the first time to get a truly global view of these trends.Join Dan Twing, President and COO of EMA, for a webinar presentation that explores the results of this research, including:
- How many organizations are relying solely on environment-specific schedulers, like Cron and Windows Task Scheduler, or cloud-specific schedulers, such as AWS Batch and Azure Scheduler?
- What drives organizations to step up to an enterprise-class WLA product?
- Is there a place for both types of schedulers in modern IT?
- How are organizations prioritizing the workloads to migrate?
- How broadly is WLA being used to automate IT operations functions and business processes?

Legacy root cause analysis (RCA) techniques based on CMDBs and topology maps are failing IT Ops, NOC and DevOps teams. CMDBs and topology maps are out-of-date and struggling to be relevant because IT today is fast-moving and application and service architectures are increasingly ephemeral. What’s the impact? Incidents and outages that are more frequent, more prolonged, and more painful for customers and users. What should enterprises do? Join Nancy Gohring, Senior Analyst at 451 Research, and Elik Eizenberg, CTO and Co-Founder at BigPanda as they discuss why fast-moving IT changes the game for IT Ops, why legacy approaches to root cause analysis are no longer working and what can help enterprises solve this critical problem.

If you’re part of a NOC or an IT Ops team, or if you manage one, you know that overwhelming IT noise is your #1 enemy. It floods your teams with false-positives, it buries critical root-cause events and it makes it hard to proactively detect expensive P1 and P0 outages. But can AIOps tools be the answer? View this 30-minute webinar to learn if AIOps (IT Ops tools powered by AI and ML) can help you eliminate noise.

Kubernetes has emerged as the de-facto standard for orchestrating containerized applications. While it abstracts away many complexities, it also introduces new operational and monitoring challenges. In fact, the latest CNCF survey cites monitoring as one of the biggest challenges in Kubernetes adoption. In this webinar, Arijit Mukherji and Maxime Petazzoni walk through the changes in requirements for monitoring Kubernetes and service mesh environments, typical challenges that enterprises face on their journey to cloud-native and how to navigate around those challenges leveraging CNCF projects such as Prometheus, OpenTracing, and Envoy. You will also see a demo showing the best practices in monitoring Kubernetes environments using metrics, events, and traces.
