    Modern Data Warehouse – Enterprise Data Curation for the Artificial Intelligence
    William McKnight, Kuber Sharma Recorded: May 23 2019 59 mins
    This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings experts in AI and data analytics, featuring GigaOm analyst William McKnight and a special guest from Microsoft. The discussion will focus on the promise AI holds for organizations in every industry and every size, and how to overcome some of the challenge today of how to prepare for AI in the organization and how to plan AI applications.

    The foundation for AI is data. You must have enough data to analyze to build models. Your data determines the depth of AI you can achieve -- for example, statistical modeling, machine learning, or deep learning -- and its accuracy. The increased availability of data is the single biggest contributor to the uptake in AI where it is thriving. Indeed, data’s highest use in the organization soon will be training algorithms. AI is providing a powerful foundation for impending competitive advantage and business disruption.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:

    •AI’s impending effect on the world
    •Data’s new highest use: training AI algorithms
    •Know & change behavior
    •Data collection
    •Corporate Skill Requirements

    You’ll learn how organizations need to be thinking about AI and the data for AI.
  • Why the Data Warehouse is Back (And Why it Never Really Went Away)
    Why the Data Warehouse is Back (And Why it Never Really Went Away)
    Andrew Brust, Ross Perez Recorded: May 23 2019 62 mins
    The rise in Enterprise data volumes and the increasing use of semi-structured data gave rise to Big Data and NoSQL platforms. But the conventional data warehousing model never went away. And with innovations in cloud object storage and compute capabilities, the data warehouse model has come out of the shadows and back into the spotlight.

    Data silos were a problem even in the old days, but the challenge they pose today is acute. Some organizations, still wary of older storage costs and cost models, are conservative in the data they preserve. Others tend towards the opposite extreme, saving data in cloud object storage with such abandon that they engender impenetrable repositories that form huge silos of their own.

    Since data warehouses have always sought to integrate siloed data, their role – in everything from analytics to machine learning – is more pivotal now than ever. But how can today’s cloud data warehouse platforms address both the old silos and the new? What can they do with semi-structured data? How can they integrate with data lakes and/or purify data swamps? And can they enable analytics on data and platforms where doing so had been an afterthought, at best?

    To get the answers, join us for this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research. The Webinar features GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust and special guest, Ross Perez from Snowflake, a leader in cloud-native data warehousing.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn:

    •How cloud data warehouses can scale both storage and compute, independently and elastically, to meet variable workloads
    •Distinct approaches for working with semi-structured data from structured data platforms
    •Why the equation for data warehouse and data lake doesn’t sum to zero
    •Whether the familiar relational/SQL paradigm can coexist with Big Data analytics and fluid, interactive performance
  • Cloud Data Warehousing: Explanations, Trends and Best Practices
    Cloud Data Warehousing: Explanations, Trends and Best Practices
    Andrew Brust, Kevin Petrie Recorded: May 22 2019 64 mins
    The popularity of cloud computing is at this point well-understood, but mixing the cloud model with data warehousing can generate unexpected synergies.

    While data lakes provide processing, economics and scalability, the need for structured data and a familiar query language matters. These considerations, along with the economics and architecture of cloud storage, has injected new scalability and cost-effectiveness into the ol’ reliable data warehouse model.

    But what are the best steps to get started with cloud data warehousing? How can you set up the right data pipelines to make your cloud data warehouse complete, authoritative and as close to real-time as possible? And can cloud innovations benefit on-premises data warehouse implementations too?

    To find out, join us for this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research. The Webinar features GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust and special guest, Kevin Petrie from Attunity, a leader in data integration and ingest for Big Data and data warehouse solutions.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will learn about:
    - The rise of the data warehouse in modern data pipelines
    - How the lake can feed data into the warehouse, for harmonious coexistence
    - How data warehousing fits into multi-cloud architectures
    - Trends in the cloud data warehouse market
  • Analytics for Action: How it All Comes Together
    Analytics for Action: How it All Comes Together
    Andrew Brust, Ira Cohen Recorded: May 22 2019 63 mins
    Analytics and Machine Learning are exciting, and the technologies around each of them are innovative. But most of these products provide building blocks, leaving a lot of work to the customer – work that may or may not go so well. It’s great to have the “dots,” but they have to be connected.

    And this isn’t just about integration. While implementing analytics in service of AI is laudable, what’s even more interesting is the opposite: using AI to automate and drive analytics. Ultimately, solutions that lead customers to action, rather than just giving them raw tools to derive insights, are what matters most. Add in forecasting and corresponding preparatory actions, and things get really interesting.

    In this market of loosely federated, open source analytics and machine learning technologies, is such an integrated, pragmatic solution feasible? Join us for this free Webinar to find out. GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust will be your host facilitating a discussion with Ira Cohen, Co-founder and Chief Data Scientist at Anodot. Cohen and Brust will shine a light on what today’s analytics and ML technologies are capable of, and contrast that with what’s on the market in ready-to-run form. By the end of the Webinar, you’ll understand what’s possible, what’s available and what may be in store in the future.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:

    • Why insights alone aren’t enough
    • Why automated analytics succeeds where manual analytics may fail
    • How streaming data processing, analytics and machine learning can be used together to maximum advantage
  • AI for the Enterprise: Actionable and On-Premises
    AI for the Enterprise: Actionable and On-Premises
    Andrew Brust, Adnan Khaleel Recorded: May 21 2019 65 mins
    There’s a lot of talk about AI in the Enterprise, but how can the corporate customer really get AI done? Most of the buzz is around AI in the cloud. But if an Enterprise customer has most of its data on-premises, is the chatter even relevant?

    The good news is there are lots of ways to do effective data science work on-premises. All the perceived accoutrements of cloud AI are there, too: open source frameworks, cluster-based distributed processing, GPU-based infrastructure and automated provisioning of the development environment. You no longer have to choose between defying data gravity to work in the cloud and withstanding arduous manual setup and update maintenance to operate on-premises.

    Join us for this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research. The Webinar features GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust and special guest, xxx from Dell EMC.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:

  • Data Lake Transformation: Merging BI, Knowledge Graphs and Search
    Data Lake Transformation: Merging BI, Knowledge Graphs and Search
    Andrew Brust, Giovanni Tummarello Recorded: May 21 2019 59 mins
    The number of innovative products and technologies in the analytics world is staggering. Unfortunately, so is the effort and expertise required to use them together effectively. We’ve got core analytics, big data streams, graph and even search technology. They’re all great, but each one is its own island of skills and tooling, with its own unique ecosystem.

    What’s needed is not just a way to integrate these technologies, but to use them in a cohesive way that weaves together paradigms and creates opportunities where before was siloes. And it all must be done by leaving data where it resides; No crazy ETL into new graph formats, pushing down queries and aggregates down to the DBs and infrastructure where it resides delivering both aggregate and detailed views of the data; providing a query experience based on a fusion of search, semantic reasoning and analytics; mapping relationships through observation, even when the links are not explicitly known; and using varied visualization techniques to understand the data, depending on the its detail level, structure and context.

    Join GigaOm’s Andrew Brust, and special guest Giovanni Tummarello (Chief Product Officer and Co-founder) from Siren, for this free Webinar. You’ll discover how to bring that motley crew of feeds, files and tables euphemistically called a data lake into a discovered, navigable whole that lets you derive real knowledge and insight from data assets across your organization.

    Join us for this Webinar and learn how:

    Core analytics, search and graph technology can be used together
    Doing so greatly reduces the risk of analytics project failure
    Combining technologies can elegantly provide complimentary perspectives, rather than force awkward context switches
    The Nirvana of data insight is achieved through technology synergy, rather than supremacy of a single approach

  • Integrating the Enterprise with a Streaming Data Approach
    Integrating the Enterprise with a Streaming Data Approach
    William McKnight, Jon Bock Recorded: May 20 2019 54 mins
    Streaming and real-time data has high business value, but that value can rapidly decay if not processed quickly. If the value of the data is not realized in a certain window of time, its value is lost and the decision or action that was needed as a result never occurs. Streaming data - whether from sensors, devices, applications, or events - needs special attention because a sudden price change, a critical threshold met, a sensor reading changing rapidly, or a blip in a log file can all be of immense value, but only if the alert is in time.

    In this webinar, we will review the landscape of streaming data and message queueing technology and introduce and demonstrate a method for an organization to assess and benchmark—for their own current and future uses and workloads—the technologies currently available. We will also reveal the results of our own execution of the OpenMessaging benchmark on workloads for two of the platforms: Apache Kafka and Apache Pulsar..

    What Will Be Discussed:

    - The Evolution of Queuing, Messaging, and Streaming
    - Today’s Technology Landscape
    - Assessing Performance: The OpenMessaging Benchmark
    - Considerations for Your Evaluation

  • Modern Data Engineering in the Cloud
    Modern Data Engineering in the Cloud
    Andrew Brust, Brian Dirking, Mike Destein Recorded: May 16 2019 56 mins
    Data engineering, the discipline of integrating, conforming, and readying data for downstream analysis, has been with us for many years, but it has new relevance and criticality today. Data engineering has to support analytics, machine learning, and maintain data quality; and it must ensure data privacy, security, and protection of sensitive data, for compliance with GDPR and other regulatory frameworks.

    A great data engineering platform must support full-fledged and operationalized data pipelines, be cloud-capable, and run on modern, distributed data execution platforms like Apache Spark. Finally, a modern data engineering platform must support savvy business analysts and other “citizen data engineers” – in addition to the more technical level database engineers, operators, and administrators.

    That’s a long list of requirements, but it is readily attainable with today’s technology.
