  • You Can't Make Good Business Decisions Today with Yesterday's Data
    You Can't Make Good Business Decisions Today with Yesterday's Data Larry Romireo at EFCO Corporation & Giacomo Lorenzin, Managing Director, Direct Solutions at BackOffice Associates Recorded: Jun 19 2018 46 mins
    There is a growing demand for high-speed analytic database systems and platforms where data can be processed at lightning speed for business decision-making. However, is that data up-to-date? If the process to update that data is batch or overnight, the data delivery may be fast, but the information may be outdated which can result in error-prone reporting and ineffective (or disastrous) business decisions.

    For successful analytics it’s important to move data in real time from multiple systems, including legacy databases, so that combined data can be properly presented in a uniform way.

    Change Data Capture is a technology employed in the best data replication solutions to minimize the amount of time and resources necessary to update data changes from one system to another. By propagating only what’s changed since the last check on the source system, minimal data is passed between systems in order to ensure identical copies of data on both source and target.

    Change Data Capture is frequently used to select and update copies of key data for operational reasons such as maintaining activity on separate systems that interact externally with customers or vendors, or remote systems that interact with corporate databases. However, it is also useful to maintain freshly updated data in systems that are used extensively for non-transactional activity, such as for analysis, reporting and data warehousing.

    Main points:
    1.Retrieving information from any source database for your analytic system
    2.Specialized and configured support to load data into the analytic system
    3.Automatically prepare and map the data between systems, saving time and resources
    4.Best-in-class process to automatically and continuously update data
    5.Change Data Capture saves time, money and effort through efficient and cost-effective technology

  • Enterprise Artificial Intelligence
    Enterprise Artificial Intelligence Rajkumar Vaidyanathan,Senior Director & Principal Data Scientist at Noodle.ai Jun 25 2018 1:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    Enterprises are a complex ecosystem where multiple business entities interact in highly non-linear and iterative fashion often resulting in operational chaos. Human stakeholders tend to make decisions based on intuition and limited perspective. AI and machine learning algorithms can augment these decision-making processes by removing guess-work to a large extent. This enables reduction of cognitive bias that may exist. Enterprise AI is a convergence of business context, design & human factors, technology and data science. The talk will give an insight into what type of challenges exist in an enterprise and how a data-driven AI solution can help augment the theory-based models to improve the overall operational efficiency.

    After months, and years, of talking about it, the 25th May 2018 has come and gone meaning the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is now in force. But what does that mean for organisations around the world? They are now faced with having to adjust their business practices to ensure compliance to the legislation given to data subjects – yet in seems that no one is ready or many have underestimated the extent of the organisational changes that lies ahead. We have already seen many news websites be taken offline for European audiences under the GDPR rules and the big player of Facebook and Google already accused of breaching the framework. It is only a matter of time before EU data subjects begin to fully exercise their rights, such as Subject Access Requests (SAR). How could you cope with the pressure of responding to these requests?
    There Is a silver lining. In this webinar, we review some practical steps that your business can take to address GDPR concerns, specifically when dealing with data subject requests.

    Key takeaways:
    •Explore practical steps that businesses can take to address their GDPR data requirements.
    •Discuss the ability to act post-GDPR, where it is never too late to begin building your infrastructure
    •Outline ways to improve costs and man power to address business GDPR issues, such as responding and producing subject access requests.
