  • Using Data Science to Build an End-to-End Recommendation System
    Using Data Science to Build an End-to-End Recommendation System Ambarish Joshi and Jeff Kelly, Pivotal Recorded: Jun 21 2018 62 mins
    We get recommendations everyday: Facebook recommends people we should connect with; Amazon recommends products we should buy; and Google Maps recommends routes to take. What all these recommendation systems have in common are data science and modern software development.

    Recommendation systems are also valuable for companies in industries as diverse as retail, telecommunications, and energy. In a recent engagement, for example, Pivotal data scientists and developers worked with a large energy company to build a machine learning-based product recommendation system to deliver intelligent and targeted product recommendations to customers to increase revenue.

    In this webinar, Pivotal data scientist Ambarish Joshi will take you step-by-step through the engagement, explaining how he and his Pivotal colleagues worked with the customer to collect and analyze data, develop predictive models, and operationalize the resulting insights and surface them via APIs to customer-facing applications. In addition, you will learn how to:

    - Apply agile practices to data science and analytics.
    - Use test-driven development for feature engineering, model scoring, and validating scripts.
    - Automate data science pipelines using pyspark scripts to generate recommendations.
    - Apply a microservices-based architecture to integrate product recommendations into mobile applications and call center systems.
  • Running Data Platforms Like Products
    Running Data Platforms Like Products Dormain Drewitz, Pivotal & Mike Koleno, Solstice Recorded: Jun 14 2018 58 mins
    Applications need data, but the legacy approach of n-tiered application architecture doesn’t solve for today’s challenges. Developers aren’t empowered to build and iterate their code quickly without lengthy review processes from other teams. New data sources cannot be quickly adopted into application development cycles, and developers are not able to control their own requirements when it comes to data platforms.

    Part of the challenge here is the existing relationship between two groups: developers and DBAs. Developers are trying to go faster, automating build/test/release cycles with CI/CD, and thrive on the autonomy provided by microservices architectures. DBAs are stewards of data protection, governance, and security. Both of these groups are critically important to running data platforms, but many organizations deal with high friction between these teams. As a result, applications get to market more slowly, and it takes longer for customers to see value.

    What if we changed the orientation between developers and DBAs? What if developers consumed data products from data teams? In this session, Pivotal’s Dormain Drewitz and Solstice’s Mike Koleno will speak about:

    - Product mindset and how balanced teams can reduce internal friction
    - Creating data as a product to align with cloud-native application architectures, like microservices and serverless
    - Getting started bringing lean principles into your data organization
    - Balancing data usability with data protection, governance, and security
  • Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum
    Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum Bob Glithero, PMM, Pivotal and James Curtis Senior Analyst, 451 Research Recorded: May 24 2018 55 mins
    Data is at the center of digital transformation; using data to drive action is how transformation happens. But data is messy, and it’s everywhere. It’s in the cloud and on-premises. It’s in different types and formats. By the time all this data is moved, consolidated, and cleansed, it can take weeks to build a predictive model.

    Even with data lakes, efficiently integrating multi-structured data from different data sources and streams is a major challenge. Enterprises struggle with a stew of data integration tools, application integration middleware, and various data quality and master data management software. How can we simplify this complexity to accelerate and de-risk analytic projects?

    The data warehouse—once seen as only for traditional business intelligence applications — has learned new tricks. Join James Curtis from 451 Research and Pivotal’s Bob Glithero for an interactive discussion about the modern analytic data warehouse. In this webinar, we’ll share insights such as:

    - Why after much experimentation with other architectures such as data lakes, the data warehouse has reemerged as the platform for integrated operational analytics

    - How consolidating structured and unstructured data in one environment—including text, graph, and geospatial data—makes in-database, highly parallel, analytics practical

    - How bringing open-source machine learning, graph, and statistical methods to data accelerates analytical projects

    - How open-source contributions from a vibrant community of Postgres developers reduces adoption risk and accelerates innovation

    We thank you in advance for joining us.

    Analytical Innovation: How to Build the Next Generation Data Platform James Curtis, Senior Analyst, Data Platforms & Analytics, 451 Research & Jacque Istok, Head of Data, Pivotal Recorded: Sep 14 2017 63 mins
    There was a time when the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) was the only way to provide a 360-degree analytical view of the business. In recent years many organizations have deployed disparate analytics alternatives to the EDW, including: cloud data warehouses, machine learning frameworks, graph databases, geospatial tools, and other technologies. Often these new deployments have resulted in the creation of analytical silos that are too complex to integrate, seriously limiting global insights and innovation.
