Broomfield, Colo.

Details about the Workshop and eWorkshop are available at: http://culture.roundpegg.com/roundpegg-culture-workshop/.

DETAILS:
Measuring, managing, and monitoring a company's culture is vital to the overall success of the organization. RoundPegg has defined a new culture management category and developed comprehensive analytics to help companies increase performance and productivity by measuring and maintaining culture. During this interactive workshop, Dr. Natalie Baumgartner, culture expert and RoundPegg founder, will join Tim Kuppler of The Culture Advantage to demonstrate how employers can better understand culture from the bottom up.

Research shows that companies with strong, well-aligned cultures are six times more successful than their competitors. The workshop will showcase ways companies can hire, develop and engage employees in alignment with organizational culture to boost performance and productivity, while limiting workplace differences. In addition, Dr. Baumgartner and Kuppler will explore ways employers can improve the lives of leadership by saving time typically enveloped by personnel issues. Attendees will have the opportunity to work with the culture experts to determine how their organizations can include social technology to further simplify culture management processes.

The in-person workshop will include a full day interactive session focused on practical training and individual cultural challenges. The two-part interactive eWorkshop will offer similar training with a case study, video and best practice review before each session. Attendees of both the Workshop and eWorkshop will receive a complimentary RoundPegg culture pilot.

Attendance is limited for both the Workshop and eWorkshop. HR professionals who wish to expand their understanding of company culture management and alignment are encouraged to register here.

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.
