Webinar: Are You Using Yesterday's SOA Architecture For Today's $OA Applications?
Do You Really Need that ESB? A look at the next generation Enterprise Architecture
As enterprises seek to integrate Cloud and Mobile channels, enterprise IT architects are presented with many new challenges. The traditional architecture for web based applications does not always effectively link to mobile and cloud side applications. The days of a monolithic central point of integration are numbered as enterprises use a myriad of applications in their daily business, both on-premises and in the Cloud (e.g. SalesForce). Lightweight Web APIs are how these applications are delivered and in an API-centric world, the traditional, ESB-based integration point is no longer really valid. So how does the enterprise respond under the shifting sands of this evolving IT architecture and turn its SOA investment into $OA driven, revenue generating services.
What you will learn
APIs - A Key Part Of Your Enterprise Engagement Strategy
Watch Forrester VP and principal analyst Jeffrey Hammond and Mark O'Neill from Vordel for a discussion of how enterprise are turning APIs into corporate platforms, and why API management is a crucial part of what it takes to be successful.
Enterprise architects, IT managers and application developers are all challenged by the shift to omni-channel clients and multi-platform development. Building modern applications means supporting web clients, smart phones, tablets, rich applications and 3rd part apps. There's one key technology that unites all these different elements: a good enterprise API. And a good set of APIs allows enterprises to quickly build and deploy mobile and Cloud applications that promote user engagement and execute business transactions across B2B, Cloud and Mobile channels. But what's the best way to get started? And what about security, integration and governance?
Webinar: The IAM-As-An-API Era:
You Must Become A Cloud Identity Services Provider
When: Thursday 6th December 8AM PST - 11AM EST - 4PM GMT - 5PM CET
Federated single sign-on has invaded the social networking world, with the "social sign-in" pattern demonstrating powerful new ways of sourcing identity data. Enterprises managing employee populations need to draw the right lessons from this pattern -- no, not moving to social logins for every purpose, but exposing APIs to the identity information for which you're authoritative -- and calling others' APIs for the rest. In this webinar, we'll discuss how to move to IAM-as-an-API and other elements of Forrester's Zero Trust model of identity and information security.

Webinar: OAuth Enterprise Patterns
A Look At Real-World Deployment Patterns Using OAuth For Cloud And Mobile Security In The Enterprise
When: Thursday 8th November 8AM PST - 11AM EST - 4PM GMT - 5PM CET
OAuth has become the de-facto standard for securing Cloud and mobile APIs, yet most of the published OAuth use cases relate to social media and consumer centric scenarios. Implementing OAuth for B2B use cases is by no means a straight forward exercise and very little has been documented about how to use OAuth with legacy security protocols or indeed existing enterprise IT infrastructures. In this webinar, API and security experts from Vordel and aurionPro SENA will discuss enterprise deployment patterns for OAuth.
Topics we will cover on this webinar:
Webinar: Securely Exchange Healthcare Information in a Cloud & Mobile World
How healthy are Patient Records in a Cloud and Mobile World?
When: Thursday, October 4th at 08.00hrs Pacific Time - 11.00hrs Eastern - 16.00hrs - British Summer Time
Healthcare IT professionals are presented with new challenges and opportunities as they seek to leverage Cloud and Mobile technologies to enable doctors and patients access medical files via multiple devices from multiple locations. Furthermore, as part of the ongoing reforms of healthcare and insurance regulation, there is a real need for unified health insurance "connectors" to link citizens and health insurance providers which presents further integration and security issues across the multiple domains.
Join our experts Vordel CTO Mark O'Neill and guest speaker, Jason Cardinal, MD of Perficient as they outline solutions to these challenges and how to achieve validated single sign on across these various domains and devices.

Architecting Your Delivery Platform for the API Economy
As enterprise architects meet the growing tide of API demand, where to now for the
SOA infrastructures they have invested in over the past 5 years?
Companies and consumers around the world are being wired together via APIs. As enterprise architects prepare to meet the growing tide of API demand, where to now for the SOA infrastructures they have invested in over the past 5 years? In this webinar, with Vordel and our guest speaker, Randy Heffner, Vice President and Principal Analyst with Forrester Research, Inc. we examine the evolution from SOA to API and outline how enterprise architects can leverage the investments they have made in SOA Application Gateways as part of a SOA infrastructure to ensure their organization efficiently delivers on the API strategy.

The Expanding role of the Gateway in a Modern IT Architecture
Best practices for leveraging SOA and Cloud Services in a fast, secure and connected manner
Across today’s computing landscape, mobile computing, social networking, and Cloud computing open many new opportunities to create business value by creating new revenue channels, fostering tighter customer relationships, and reducing the cost of delivering products and services. Leveraging these new technologies demands a high level of application connectivity that extends far beyond enterprise boundaries, while still being fast, secured, and controlled. To meet the need, SOA gateways are expanding into application gateways, both in their feature-function and the scenarios they are being deployed. In this webinar, our guest speaker, Randy Heffner of Forrester Research, will examine the changing role of the Gateway in the evolving modern IT architecture, enabling organizations to robustly connect applications that can be quite literally anywhere. The webinar will review best practices for deploying Gateways to fulfill different roles as enterprises seek to:
Bridging Security from the Enterprise to the CloudCloud computing presents significant value to organizations. However, the downside is that few organizations wish to trust third-parties with their corporate data. To address this, Vordel enables organizations to safely connect from the Enterprise to Cloud based services without undermining their underlying corporate security policies.

Webinar: Enabling Mobile Applications – Easily and SecurelyThe drive towards mobile applications has opened up questions of security. Mobile apps typically connect over the Internet to Web Services for their data, thus raising security concerns not only for the mobile application itself, but also the Web Services which it accesses for its data. How do organizations protect against attackers trying to reverse engineer or otherwise attack the mobile application, or attack the Web Services feeding it data? What if malicious mobile applications are placed in app "markets" and installed by unwary employees? What about attacks on the Web Services include data harvesting, eavesdropping on data, and denial-of-service
