  • Top BI Trends for 2018
    Top BI Trends for 2018 Dan Sommer Senior Director, Market Intelligence Lead at Qlik Recorded: Feb 13 2018 61 mins
    It can be hard to keep up with the rapidly changing BI landscape. But it doesn't have to be. Reserve your spot at Qlik's annual BI Trends Webinar.

    In this global webinar live replay, we’ll reveal the top BI Trends for the coming year and how they can help you transform your data. Join Qlik’s Global Market Intelligence lead and former Gartner analyst Dan Sommer to learn why 2018 is the year for the “desilofication of data.”

    Recent events like the Equifax data leak and new regulations like the EU's General Data Protection Regulation have increased the urgency for further change in the BI landscape and to move data out of silos.

    What is the right strategy and framework?
    How can you easily move from "all data," to "combinations of data," to "data insights"?
    Can data literacy and augmented intelligence create a data-driven culture?
    The volume of data available to decision makers continues to be massive, and is growing faster than our ability to consume it. Learn how to move your data out of silos and turn your data into insights.

  • Big Data Analytics vs Privacy: Risks and Opportunities
    Big Data Analytics vs Privacy: Risks and Opportunities Rob Anderson, Head of Field Operations (Privitar),Tim Hickman, Associate (White & Case) Recorded: Dec 14 2017 58 mins
    Today's modern businesses gain competitive edge and remain innovative by using advanced analytics and machine learning. Utilising big data can build customer loyalty by improving personalised marketing campaigns; optimises fraud detection; and improves products and services by advanced testing. However, the data sets required for advanced analytics are often sensitive, containing personal customer information, and therefore come with an inherent set of privacy risks and concerns.

    This roundtable will cover a few key questions on data utility and privacy:

    - In what ways advanced analytics help businesses gain competitive edge?

    - What is defined as sensitive data?

    - Will GDPR affect the way you're allowed to use customer data?

    - What opportunities are there to utilise sensitive data?

    Unlocking the data’s true value is a challenge, but there are a range of tools and techniques that can help. This live discussion will focus on the data analytics landscape; compliance considerations and opportunities for improving data utility in 2018 and beyond.

    Key takeaways:

    - A view of the data protection landscape

    - How to remaining compliant with GDPR when using customer data

    - Use cases for advanced analytics and machine learning

    - Opportunities for maximising data utility in 2018

  • Data Fabric: A New Paradigm For Self-Service Data & Data Scientists
    Data Fabric: A New Paradigm For Self-Service Data & Data Scientists Kelly Stirman, VP Strategy, Dremio Recorded: Dec 12 2017 45 mins
    Data Scientists are rare and highly valued individuals, and for good reason: making sense of data, and using the machine learning libraries requires an unusual blend of advanced skills. Why is it then that Data Scientists spend the majority of their time getting data ready for models, and a fraction actually doing the high value work?

    In this talk we introduce the concept of Data Fabric, a new way to provide a self-service model for data, where data scientists can easily discover, curate, share, and accelerate data analysis using Python, R, and visualization tools, no matter where the data is managed, no matter the structure, and no matter the size.

    We will talk through the role of Apache Arrow, the in-memory columnar data standard that is accelerating analytics for GPU-based processing, as well as the role of Pandas and Arrow in providing unprecedented speed in accessing datasets from Python.
  • SIG Talk: Quality & Testing 1 – Introduction
    SIG Talk: Quality & Testing 1 – Introduction Richard Bishop, Todd DeCapual, Chris Trimper Recorded: Dec 12 2017 68 mins
    Vivit launches their first ever SIG Talk event with three speakers who will give you insights into StormRunner Functional, Dynamic data handling in performance tests as well as AI and machine learning as it applies to testing.

    We will discuss:

    •How StormRunner Functional is the latest functional test offering from Micro Focus. In this session, Chris Trimper, an early adopter and beta tester, will share his experiences with this new product

    •How Virtual Table Server (VTS), in days of Mercury Interactive, was the often-overlooked repository for dynamically updated real-time test data. Even after a revamp and relaunch in 2014, many people still don't use it, but they should. Richard's VTS demo will help you to get value from this great add-on for LoadRunner and Performance Center
