    Agility — doing things fast, and iteratively — is the key to success in turbulent markets. Analytics-as-a-Service partnerships can facilitate agile analytics allowing you to develop and iterate algorithms and models faster, and more effectively, than is possible when you are responsible for deploying and managing your own advanced analytics infrastructure.

    This webinar will explore the emergence of analytics as a service (AaaS), and the use of AaaS providers to avoid the time, cost and risk associated with deploying cutting-edge advanced analytics infrastructure. You’ll hear about the emergence of AaaS, the profile of companies exploiting AaaS providers, and the criteria you should use when evaluating AaaS providers, as well as the economic and time-to-market benefits of leveraging Analytics-as-a-Service partnerships to improve your advanced analytics capabilities and leapfrog your competition.

    Join us to learn how Analytics-as-a-Service can help develop competitive advantage and increase agility in the ever-evolving marketplace.

  • Aligning Analytics to Business Strategy: Three Paths to Success Aligning Analytics to Business Strategy: Three Paths to Success IIA Research Director, Dan Magestro, PhD and moderated by Client Success Manager, Allison Park. Recorded: Nov 17 2016 60 mins
    One of the most pressing issues facing analytics programs in every industry is the frequent disconnect between analytics activities and the business’s stated strategic priorities. This disconnect has many causes, including the lack of visibility into high-level priorities, inability to translate strategic needs into analytics projects, and the historical lack of analytics in the strategy development process itself.

    Based on best practices gleaned from dozens of companies, IIA Research Director, Dan Magestro will share three paths to success with practical recommendations for how to align analytics activities to a business’s strategic objectives, including the formation of oversight committees, more effective project prioritization, alignment of senior business leadership, and demonstrated benefits of incorporating analytics into the strategic planning process.

    When it comes to aligning analytics to business strategy, one size does NOT fit all. Join us to learn the best path to success for your organization.

    Presented by IoT expert, Bill Roberts, this webinar explores how the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is having a dramatic impact on how manufacturers and service providers operate. From the factory floor to a distributed energy generation facility to anywhere a critical piece of equipment operates, machine data holds enormous potential to drive high levels of operational efficiency and unlock new service innovations.  This blending of operational technologies (OT) with Information Technology (IT) has created challenges with the data, the analytics lifecycle and a deep thinking into the roles of personnel.  A robust IoT analytics lifecycle can play a critical role in helping organizations separate the relevant signals from the noise in IIoT data, gain real time critical insights, and drive appropriate, timely action to realize the promised value of IIoT.  This session will explore these topics and offer insights on pursuing a successful industrial IoT strategy that leverages a robust analytics lifecycle.

  • Tightening the Reins on Credit Risk Modeling Tightening the Reins on Credit Risk Modeling Laurent Birade and John Voigt of SAS and Dan Magestro, IIA Research Director Recorded: Aug 25 2016 55 mins
    Many financial institutions recognize that they still do not have sufficient data management, infrastructure, or staffing in place to address all the issues brought about by the myriad of risk regulations. While larger banks continue to struggle with the qualitative aspects of supervisory stress testing and capital planning, IFRS 9 and the new CECL accounting standard will demand greater interconnection of Finance and Risk, more complex modeling, and increased public disclosure. Heightened expectations of strong model risk management and governance further strain organizations.

    To address these challenges, institutions are reexamining existing processes with a goal to establish a more efficient and controlled modeling environment—including model implementation and lifecycle management, orchestration, and governance. How can financial institutions ensure they have the foundational building blocks in place to meet these increasing demands?
  • Self Service Data Management for Analytics Users Across the Enterprise Self Service Data Management for Analytics Users Across the Enterprise Ken Pikulik and Bob Matsey from Teradata Corporation Recorded: Aug 10 2016 60 mins
    With the proliferation of analytics expanding across every function of the enterprise, the need for broader access to data by experienced data scientists and non-technical users to produce reports and make discovery is growing exponentially.

    The unintended consequences of this trend is a bottleneck within IT to deliver the necessary data while still maintaining the governance and data security standards required to safeguard this critical corporate asset.

    This presentation will illustrate how organizations are solving this challenge and enabling users to both access larger quantities of existing data as well as add new data to their own models without negatively impacting the quality, security or cost to store that data. It will also highlight some of the cost and performance benefits achieved by enabling self-service data management.
