  • Graph-Based Customer Journey Analytics with Neo4j
    Graph-Based Customer Journey Analytics with Neo4j
    Jesús Barrasa, Neo4j Live 37 mins
    Today's customers use a combination of channels to interact with a business. Customer Journey Analytics (CJA) is the process of tracking and analyzing every touchpoint that a customer interacts with, across multiple channels and over time. This requires connecting events from multiple sources into customer-centric journeys. Both "connected data points" and "journey analysis" immediately suggest graphs but if we add the need for timeliness (even real-time) and actionable insights there is no doubt about the right technical solution. Find out how to use Neo4j to understand, visualise and influence your customers' journeys, whether that's in the form of recommendations, cause analysis or personalisation to name just a few.

    In this webinar, Jesús will briefly introduce Graph Databases and then show how can they crucially enhance CJA initiatives with a Telco based example.

    How to Use Containers to Simplify Speedy Deployment of Database Workloads
    Stephen O'Grady, RedMonk, Cornelia Davis & Ivan Novick, Pivotal Recorded: Nov 14 2018 59 mins
    Containers have been widely adopted to make development and testing faster, and are now used at enterprise scale for stateless applications in production. Database infrastructure has not seen quite the same gains in terms of velocity over that same period, however.

    Can containers be as transformative for databases as they have been for application development? If container technology can be leveraged for running database workloads, what impact does this have on architects and operations teams that are responsible for running databases?

    We’ll discuss the trends—from virtualization to cloud to containerization—and the intersection of these platform trends with the data-driven world.

    Most companies start their cloud journey with a new use case, or a new application. Sometimes these applications can run independently in the cloud, but often times they need data from the on premises datacenter. Existing applications will slowly migrate, but will need a strategy and the technology to enable a multi-year migration.

    In this session, we will share how companies around the world are using Confluent Cloud, a fully managed Apache Kafka service, to migrate to AWS. By implementing a central-pipeline architecture using Apache Kafka to sync on-prem and cloud deployments, companies can accelerate migration times and reduce costs.

    In this online talk we will cover:
    •How to take the first step in migrating to AWS
    •How to reliably sync your on premises applications using a persistent bridge to cloud
    •Learn how Confluent Cloud can make this daunting task simple, reliable and performant

  • Ecommerce, ML and Recommendation Engines: Why The Database Matters
    Ecommerce, ML and Recommendation Engines: Why The Database Matters
    Sucharita Kodali, Vice President & Principal Analyst, Forrester and Bharath Yadla, VP Product Strategy, Aerospike Recorded: Nov 13 2018 60 mins
    Online shoppers expect the right product at the right price at the right time. While this is a simple concept, the applications supporting these goals are extremely complex. An online retailer’s inventory, pricing and marketing management system must deliver real-time updates and associated recalculations within milliseconds in order to serve millions of dynamically-generated pages per second.

    The problem is exacerbated as an e-commerce business scales. Most databases cannot handle the inventory updates, price adjustments and personalized recommendations in real-time as early successes deliver a significant increase in demand. This degrades the customer experience just as word of mouth starts to take hold.

    In this webinar, Matt Bushell, Director of Product Marketing - Aerospike, and guest speaker, Sucharita Kodali, Vice President and Principal Analyst - Forrester Research, will cover:
    > The latest technology trends affecting the Retail/Ecommerce space
    > Where and how Machine Learning can be deployed

    How to turn customer experience into customer trust
    Louise Thorpe, Chief Privacy Officer, American Express Recorded: Nov 13 2018 62 mins
    Forrester found that only 11 percent of companies are able to deliver a customer experience (CX) that sets them apart from their competition.

    There are four key ways to ensure that your CX is flawless and your market share keeps growing. It starts from the inside out, with a unified vision of CX; a strategy to solve problems fast while offering self-help; continuous, ongoing iteration and improvement of best practices, and a consistent, personalized experience in every way.

    Ageas is one of the largest providers of personal and commercial insurance in the U.K., and was no stranger to automation when it began using Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce in 2014. But from the very start, it knew it couldn’t achieve its process efficiency, waste reduction, and risk mitigation goals unless it built an internal culture in which everyone in the organization fully understood the benefits of Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and embraced all it could do for them, the company, and its customers.

    In this episode of our Blue Prism Café, join the team behind Ageas’ leading change management practices, where their goals were to eliminate worries about the impact on employment,actively encourage their employees to welcome process automation, and create a culture in which the employees think of the robots as additional team mates that are responsible for doing mundane, repetitive back office tasks 24/7/365.

    Enterprise-wide Kubernetes, Episode 3: Multi-Cloud Persistent Storage
    Michael Ferranti, VP, Marketing, Portworx and Anubhav Sharma, VP, Business Development, Nirmata, Nov 15 2018 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ready to learn how to manage persistent storage for containers in the multi-cloud environment?

    Kubernetes is enabling multi-cloud strategies for the Enterprise like never before. As data is a fundamental element of all Enterprise applications, without a consistent data management strategy, companies have been able to containerize 5-10% of applications, mostly stateless workloads. With Kubernetes adoption, Enterprises have to think about data management strategies because, without it, companies cannot truly adopt multi-cloud. Data backup, data portability, and DR are critical requirements that have to be addressed as part of any robust Kubernetes solution stack.

    In this webinar, will be talking about best practices on managing persistent storage in a multi-cloud environment and demonstrate application portability across the clouds leveraging Nirmata and Portworx.
