  • Four Dominant Hadoop Distributions
    Four Dominant Hadoop Distributions Howard Dresner, President, Dresner Advisory Services Recorded: Sep 13 2017 2 mins
    Watch this video for information about the importance of big data distributions.

    There are four dominant Hadoop distributions: Cloudera, Hortonworks, Amazon, and MapR. All four are gaining increased interest as the level of big data adoption grows. The market leader right now is Cloudera although high tech prefers Amazon as do smaller organizations -- up to 1,000 employees.

  • What Are You Doing With Your Data?
    What Are You Doing With Your Data? Wayne Eckerson Recorded: Sep 11 2017 7 mins
    In this video, we explore the best way to data about your products and services into a valuable product on its own.

    As Edd Wilder-James once said, “Data products are the reason data scientists are lately treated like rock stars.” Data products operationalize analytical insight. And that’s what monetizing data is all about. The automobile is a good example for the potential of monetizing data. It illustrates that data about a product can be just as valuable -- if not more valuable -- than the product itself for generating revenue and increasing customer loyalty.
  • Accessing Data Using Custom Connectors
    Accessing Data Using Custom Connectors Ryan Haber Recorded: Sep 11 2017 8 mins
    This video explores how applications connect to data sources and what that means to an embedded application.

    Database query languages like Structured Query Language (SQL) and the Open Database Connectivity Protocol (ODBC) have been around a long time. SQL since the early 1970s and ODBC since 1986. And for as long as people have been querying data, reducing the length of time it took to get answers back -- query latency -- has been a problem. As databases have changed and new types emerged, solving the problem has become even more complex. Custom data source connectors are a solution.
  • Big Data Drives Businesses of All Sizes
    Big Data Drives Businesses of All Sizes Wayne Eckerson Recorded: Sep 11 2017 4 mins
    In this video, you’ll learn why businesses of all sizes are investing so heavily in big data.

    Big data and big data analytics are big business. IDC projects the market to grow to $50 billion by 2019. So what do organizations that invest in big data expect to achieve. Is there still a role for intuition in decision-making? Essentially, businesses pursue three objectives with big data: understanding the past, improving the present, and predicting the future. We’re also increasingly surrounded by data-driven smart systems that are reshaping the way we work and the economy we work in.
  • The Data Monetization Maturity Model
    The Data Monetization Maturity Model Wayne Eckerson Recorded: Sep 11 2017 6 mins
    Watch this video to find out where most organizations are right now in terms of data monetization maturity -- and how to move past that.

    A five-stage model describes the path to data monetization maturity. But did you know that although many organizations have invested heavily in data and analytics since the 1990s, most have not moved beyond the first stage of the model -- distributing analytics internally? The next four stages chart the development of analytics from a cost center to a profit center. And each stage has its own requirements.
  • Embedding Analytics with iFrames
    Embedding Analytics with iFrames Ryan Haber Recorded: Sep 11 2017 5 mins
    In this video, you’ll find out how iFrames extends the customization of embedded analytics beyond what’s possible with white labeling.

    There are a lot of cases when white labeling isn't sufficient,especially when you want to have data analytics alongside other functionality. A good example would be a customer portal where you have several columns with different widgets. You might have a news feed, a weather map, and other features plus analytics tools.

    One way to do this would be embed an analytics web application into the portal via an iFrame. Of course, like white labeling, iFrames have limits.
  • Embedding Analytics with a Software Development Kit
    Embedding Analytics with a Software Development Kit Ryan Haber Recorded: Sep 11 2017 5 mins
    This video goes beyond customization via white labeling and iFrames to the use of a software development kit (SDK).

    Using iFrames and white labeling for customization, there's always a tradeoff between security, interconnectivity, and the integrity of the user experience. You have more control and more connectivity with an SDK. You can build a truly custom application without starting from scratch. A robust SDK should include the ability to embed out-of-the-box charts and new charts as well as their accompanying data and metadata. It should also allow you to embed just data that can feed pre-built visualizations and, very important, integrate using REST APIs.
  • Building Your Own Data Platform with REST APIs
    Building Your Own Data Platform with REST APIs Ryan Haber Recorded: Sep 11 2017 6 mins
    Watch this video to learn, how using REST APIs alongside of an SDK can multiply the power of both.

    An API is to software code what a UI is to users. It helps different bits of software interact with each other. And can help you turn a data application into a data platform. If you have access to them, you can do a lot with REST APIs that weren’t built into a particular SDK. For example, you could accept user inputs and pass them to the platform to be stored. Or acquire data and metadata from the application or from users. This can be very powerful when building portals.
  • Embedded Applications: Administration and Automation
    Embedded Applications: Administration and Automation Olivier Meyer, Zoomdata Recorded: Sep 11 2017 2 mins
    Watch this video to learn how administration and automation via REST APIs makes life easier when a SaaS company or large enterprise is embedding a BI platform for use by tens or hundreds of thousands of users.

    In that scenario, you want to look for ways to automate the provisioning of new users and groups. So, it's important for a BI platform to offer administrative APIs that can be scripted from your application. These are usually REST APIs, and they really help ease the administrative load when users want to sign up for the embedded service from the parent application.
  • Embedded Applications are Like Icebergs
    Embedded Applications are Like Icebergs Olivier Meyer, Zoomdata Recorded: Sep 11 2017 2 mins
    This video recaps why embedded applications are like icebergs -- a lot happens under the surface.

    Visualizations are what we see from an embedded application. That’s the part of the iceberg that’s above water. But under the hood, you have to make sure that the embedded BI platform will work with the parent application's platform and its development environment. You have to be able to deploy it on the same kind of infrastructure. And it has to work with the parent application’s security model.
