    The Internet of Things is a generational opportunity to create a new world where data, technology, and people are integrated to transform customer experience.

It also needs to support an entire customer journey.

    In this webinar, Blue Hill Research will explore the IoT Analytics Framework necessary to support the connected customer slated to arise in verticals such as retail, hospitality, healthcare, utilities, and transportation. By looking at experience across multiple verticals and exploring the commonalities in data types, data access, and data-driven responses that define the connected customer, this presentation will provide best practices that enterprises should consider to maximize the value of the Internet of Things.
  • Tackling Today’s Threat Landscape by Visualizing Cyber Risk Tackling Today’s Threat Landscape by Visualizing Cyber Risk Dr. Alea Fairchild, Blue Hill Research and Torsten George, RiskSense Recorded: Oct 12 2016 51 mins
    How can we better visualize cyber risk as to understand our systemic susceptibility and its relevance to the business? Defining the role and extent of cyber risk in business operations in today’s environment is important not only for the Board in terms of compliance and governance, but also for the IT team in understanding the business criticality of IT assets and prioritization for remediation efforts. We will explain how organizations can operationalize cyber risk management and implement a pro-active, rather than reactive, approach to threat prevention, detection and response.


    This webinar will help viewers to

    - Prioritize information assets based on value to the organisation
    - Identify and prioritize risks to these assets
    - Reduce risks by visually identifying priorities and resources

  • Embedded Analytics to Bridge the Last Mile to Business Value Embedded Analytics to Bridge the Last Mile to Business Value Hyoun Park, Blue Hill Research and Haarthi Sadasivam, Looker Recorded: Oct 4 2016 48 mins
    For analytics to make a meaningful organizational impact, organizations have to effectively embed analytics into key business tasks and decisions such as sales operations, ecommerce, workforce management, product and service workflows, revenue recognition, and financial performance. Blue Hill's research, including interviews, case studies, surveys, and vendor briefings, consistently show that effective analytic usage requires embedding analytics into a variety of workflows in a repeatable, scalable, and consistent fashion that leads to real-time visibility. Although this may seem to be a straightforward task, Blue Hill finds that a majority of companies fail to meet this standard of flexible and value-driven embedded analytics for a variety of reasons, including the following:

    Internal analytics cannot be easily scaled to serve organization-wide data or users
    Analytics cannot be easily configured or customized to meet specific user needs
    Companies lack a repeatable process for embedding analytics for similar data processes
    End users can't get the right data sources connected to the right analytic tasks
    Key analytic views are not directly connected to the current version of the truth

    In this webinar, Blue Hill Research will provide guidance on the key reasons that traditional BI deployments, even those created based on historical "best practices" for analytics, fail to achieve these goals and the benefits associated with supporting embedded analytics as an ongoing Sixth Sense to improve business performance rather than a never-ending series of one-off requests.
  • Building a Highly Agile, Impactful, and Respected Analytics Center of Excellence Building a Highly Agile, Impactful, and Respected Analytics Center of Excellence James Haight and Mark Marinelli Recorded: Jun 21 2016 60 mins
    If your data science team is stuck on a never-ending hamster wheel of ineffective training and business requests, or if you are now building an analytics center of excellence (CoE) then it is time to reexamine the prevailing wisdom.

    Amidst the gold rush to become a ‘data-driven’ organization, companies are rapidly setting up analytics centers of excellence. But they are doing so in a way that unwittingly prioritizes software training and procurement over tackling broader organizational challenges. To address this concern, Blue Hill Research conducted a study of top consultancies, systems integrators, and Fortune-100 companies to understand how organizations should construct analytics CoEs to retain top talent, proactively take charge of complex challenges, and lead transformative change.

    Join Blue Hill Research’s Principal Analyst James Haight and Lavastorm CTO Mark Marinelli as they discuss Blue Hill’s dedicated research into the mindset, strategies, and techniques needed to build successful analytics centers of excellence.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    - Why successful analytics CoEs define business impact first and then find technologies to augment initiatives second
    - Fundamental design principals of successful analytics CoEs used by top consultancies and Fortune 100 organizations
    - Why analytics CoEs must have an agile approach to navigate shifting business environments and how you can bring these principals into your company
  • Next Generation Databases and the Modern Data Analyst Next Generation Databases and the Modern Data Analyst Guy Harrison and James Haight Recorded: Apr 20 2016 58 mins
    Over the past seven years we've seen what is clearly a 3rd era in database management as the relational database hegemony has given way to a diverse set of alternatives including Hadoop, Spark, HBase, Cassandra and MongoDB, augmented by technologies such as Kafka, Drill and others. But these next generation data platforms are mutating rapidly: we're on a journey - but to where?

    In this presentation the author of “Next Generation Databases” will review the forces behind the latest data revolution and extrapolate those trends into a vision for data management and preparation solutions for the next decade and look at how enterprises can best transition into the next era of data management.

    Blue Hill’s James Haight will build on this discussion by exploring findings from his dedicated research study analyzing the data usage habits of data analysts. James will discuss the most frequently accessed data sources, how data analysts are spending their time, and what tools data analysts are using to accomplish their jobs. In particular, James will outline the challenges associated with data preparation. This discussion will quantify the dollars and opportunity cost associated with investing in the right data preparation solutions in the face of a fast evolving enterprise data landscape.
