Twilio to Host Webinar on What's Next For IT Service Management

Independent Research Analyst Eveline Oehrlich, Fruition, Fermi Labs and Twilio Discuss What's Next for the Help Desk

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Twilio, the leader in cloud-based communications, today announced the availability of a new webinar on IT service management (ITSM). Registration for the Webinar is open at http://ahoy.twilio.com/webinars/itsm-pr.

Please join guest speaker, Forrester Research, Inc. Principal Analyst Eveline Oehrlich, Fruition Partners CEO Marc Talluto, Fermi Labs IT group leader Jack Schmidt, and Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson on December 13th at 1 PM EST/ 10 AM PST to review how cloud-based tools and communications protocols are transforming IT and ITSM by promoting service management automation and multichannel interactions.

IT is facing a big challenge. As newly empowered employees bring their own technology into the workplace, the complexity of supporting an increasing number of apps and devices grows exponentially. Keeping pace with this fast-changing environment raises the bar on business responsiveness and requires new tools and approaches for IT service management.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
