  • Cloud Migration: Opportunities and Risks for the Business Unit
    Cloud Migration: Opportunities and Risks for the Business Unit
    John Armstrong, Head of Product Marketing Recorded: Apr 24 2019 31 mins
    The business case for cloud migration is compelling: cost reductions, ease of growth and
    expansion, outsourcing of infrastructure and maintenance, and improved access to the latest
    technologies. However, many organizations that are migrating to the cloud focus on technical factors and overlook the broader business implications of their projects. As a best practice, assessing the opportunities and risks for the organization should be a joint effort led by the IT and business unit teams. At the highest level, a business justification focuses on the return on investment (ROI) associated with a proposed technical change. However, many supporting data points are required to populate the formula and achieve a realistic calculation.

    In this webinar, we will address these and other critical questions:

    What are the key business expectations associated with a cloud migration?
    What are the implications if the cloud migration doesn’t go as planned?
    What business considerations should be included in any cloud migration plan?

    And always, this webinar will be followed by a short Q and A session with the audience. Please join us!

    Jeremy Meier and David Noh, both Undergraduate Students at Clemson University - An Investigation into Time Series Analysis
    Over the past several months, our team has worked closely with a dataset having roughly 16,000 total observations, recording both the date and balance in financial data. Focusing on individual accounts with a size of around 400 observations, our first goal was to compare statistical metrics and techniques used commonly in time series analysis on the given data sets. We dove deep into two major industry standard methods for understanding and predicting on a dataset. Using insights learned from these observations, we hope to better predict future balances in the dataset, as well as find any anomalies or misbehavior in the data in order to provide business value.

  • Enabling Self-Service Analytics with Logical Data Warehouse (APAC)
    Enabling Self-Service Analytics with Logical Data Warehouse (APAC)
    Paul Moxon, VP of Data Architectures and Chief Evangelist & Michael Dickson, Senior Sales Engineer, Denodo Apr 30 2019 1:30 am UTC 59 mins
    What makes data scientists happy? Of course data. They want it fast and flexible, and they want to do it themselves. But most classic data warehouses (DW) and data lakes are not easy to deal with for agile data access. A more practical solution is the logical data warehouse (LDW), which has shown to be a more agile foundation for delivering and transforming data and makes it easy to quickly plug in new data sources.

    Attend this webinar to learn:

    * How easily new data sources can be made available for analytics and data science
    * How your organization can successfully migrate to a flexible LDW architecture in a step-by-step fashion
    * How LDWs help integrate self-service analytics with classic forms of business intelligence

  • Disrupting the Payment Sector
    Disrupting the Payment Sector
    Rob Parker-Cole, Dr. Heiko Klarl Apr 30 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Payment Service Directive 2 was inured in 2018 by the European Commission to enable a competitive, regulated environment for banking and non-banking organizations within the European Union. Competitive markets such as China’s fast growing mobile payment market, Australia’s New Payment Platform, and evolving FinTech Start-ups strongly impact the disintermediation of payment transactions, disrupting the banking sector globally. The need for fulfilling future customer needs by providing convenient payment solutions demand for faster adoption, agile methods and MVP (Minimal Viable Product) approaches that must lead to cultural changes in the banking sector to keep up with the market. How can one bank bear up to the competing environment by investing in digital payment solutions without losing control over regulation and cost?

    EXECUTIVE SPOTLIGHT with Matthew Clark, VP of eCommerce & Digital Marketing, Premier Farnell

    What does it take to successfully deliver a digital experience for the B2B market?

    While, the whole enterprise needs to be aimed at driving a digital experience, there are 4 key areas which, if overlooked, will cause your B2B digital experience to suffer or fail, no matter how good your digital platforms or your core products are. Digital experiences are made of content, knowledge and data.

    In this one-on-one conversation with Matthew Clark, Premier Farnell's VP of eCommerce & Digital Marketing, EIS's Dino Eliopulos will explore what companies need to do to ensure that their product information, content, and know-how combine with insights that they have about their customers to elevate their digital experiences to the top of the industry.

    The must-haves include:

    • Robust, shoppable product catalogue.
    • Rich, well-structured content.
    • Optimized site-search, chatbots, and product recommendations.

  • NVMe-oF 101 - Understanding NVMe-oF and How it Drives Business Value
    NVMe-oF 101 - Understanding NVMe-oF and How it Drives Business Value
    Dave Montgomery, Director, Storage Platforms Marketing, Western Digital May 1 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Every IT shop is trying to balance two different objectives: 1) increase capacity; 2) deliver the requisite performance against a variety of workloads. Indiscriminately spending money that doesn’t align capacity and storage performance with the workloads’ needs, is wasteful. However, connecting storage capacity and performance across the network with workloads is an easy way to allocate storage resources cost effectively, as needed.

    To address today’s dynamic data requirements, we must consider that end users need a next-generation infrastructure that aligns storage resources with workloads without jeopardizing performance, capacity, or incurring unwarranted expense. Non-Volatile Memory Express over Fabrics (NVMe-oF) is a storage protocol that aims to simplify the interconnection of computer memory, storage, and networking, while improving performance of the storage infrastructure and related applications, to meet IT departments’ objectives and drive business value.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    • What is NVMe-oF
    • The business value of NVMe-oF
    • The role that NVMe-oF will play in transforming data centers of the future
