  • Transforming from Virtual Desktop Infrastructure to End User Computing
    Transforming from Virtual Desktop Infrastructure to End User Computing Doug Chamberlain, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, NetApp Recorded: Feb 15 2018 41 mins
    By untethering the digital workspace and enabling collaboration, End User Computing (EUC) is an important enabler of digital transformation. Despite the many advantages of EUC solutions—centralized management, increased security, and easy accessibility to name a few—many organizations have been slow to adopt. To ensure user productivity, you must also accelerate the key applications and databases users rely on, matching the efficiency of virtual desktops.

    Addressing unpredictable user workloads in a complicated EUC environment can require painful re-architecting. Introducing new workloads may rob resources from existing workloads, leaving users unhappy. A better approach to infrastructure for End User Computing is needed. Netapp HCI was built to address the challenges to support your digital transformation to EUC.

    Analyze ORC and Parquet data in the right place for the right price with Vertica Mark Lyons and Steve Sarsfield, Vertica Recorded: Feb 15 2018 39 mins
    In a modern enterprise architecture, gaining access to data that’s stored in multiple locations is crucial to delivering analytics. It shouldn’t really matter if the data is stored in your database or some other location in ORC or Parquet formats. Performing analysis on it without having to first copy it can be a very powerful capability.

    Join Vertica experts Mark Lyons and Steve Sarsfield as they talk about how the external tables feature of Vertica can save you time and effort in many day-to-day analytics tasks. Whether you’re joining internal databases to external data tables for additional insight, training machine learning models, or simply tiering less critical data analysis off to a less expensive storage location, external tables can speed you through this task.

    In this webinar, you’ll also learn how external tables are a fantastic way to keep costs low yet maintain easy access to data of almost any age and any importance.

  • Data Visualization for the People
    Data Visualization for the People John Grimwade, Assistant Professor, School of Visual Communication, Ohio University Feb 21 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    How do we cross the gap from complex information to a general audience? Democratizing data visualization is perhaps our greatest challenge. There’s an incredible amount of data viz around, but unfortunately most of it does not communicate clearly. At least not to the great majority of the public. It often seems cold and elitist, almost as if it’s designed for people with some training in understanding data. How do we improve this situation? First, we recognize the audience we’re trying to reach, and then we can use well-proven journalistic principles to build a visual presentation that connects with them.

    John’s blog: “Infographics for the People” promotes this same message for all forms of visual communication.

    In this presentation, he will explore new approaches that can unleash the enormous potential of data-driven storytelling to inform and empower the general public.

    Bio:

    John teaches informational graphics to undergraduates and graduates in the School of Visual Communication at Ohio University. John has won 80 major infographic awards, and run workshops and lectured in many countries. He is currently infographics director for Eight by Eight, a soccer magazine that was the 2015 Magazine of the Year for design. In March 2017, an exhibition of his complete career (sponsored by Adobe), which covered both analog and digital visual explanations, was held at the INCH conference in Munich. This exhibition will be staged again at Ohio University in October this year.

  • Architecting Your Data and Systems to Address Data Subjects' Rights
    Architecting Your Data and Systems to Address Data Subjects' Rights Primitive Logic CEO Jill Reber, President Kevin Moos & Chief Architect Eric Greenfeder Feb 21 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Regardless of your geographical location, if you handle EU residents’ personal data, you also need to provide mechanisms that allow an individual to exercise the rights that are afforded by the GDPR. The ability to search, discover and review and delete data is a critical component of GDPR compliance.
    But if that data is stored in multiple systems, and potentially shared with multiple partners, the tasks become dramatically more complex – requiring the technological ability to find and address all affected data promptly.
    All of these rights require a new level of enterprise-wide data mapping, data governance, data architecture and system management. Join Primitive Logic’s technology solution experts in a conversation about how to address Subject Access Requests from the technology perspective.

    Day 2 of 3 day series:
    Day 2 - Focus on Privacy side of GDPR from a technology perspective

    ~ Day 1 – Overview of key concepts with legal and technical discussion of suggested actions
    ~ Day 3 – Focus on Security side of GDPR from a technology perspective

  • The Rise of Embedded Analytics, How To Do It Right
    The Rise of Embedded Analytics, How To Do It Right Anurag Tandon, VP, Product Management Feb 21 2018 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Today's most successful companies are data-driven, making informed decisions instead of guesses. Traditionally data-driven insights have been delivered in the form of standalone business intelligence applications, but in the past few years we’ve seen a big shift towards delivering contextual analytics embedded directly into other software applications and business workflows. For software vendors this means meeting high end-user expectations by infusing compelling data visualizations and analytics into every application you create and sell. Modern data visualization and analytics applications, therefore, need to be designed from the ground-up to be quick and easy to embed for a web and mobile-first world. They also must capable of handling today's rapidly evolving modern data platforms so that your analytics technology does not lock you into using yesterday's
    data stores.

    If you're a CTO, product manager, or software engineering leader, you may be curious about whether to build or buy an integrated analytics solution, how to evaluate the available offerings for embedded analytics, and how to most efficiently embed data visualization and analytics into your application. In this webcast, we will cover the following topics:

    ● Assessing the current state of your application's integrated analytics
    ● Approaching the build vs. buy decision
    ● Styles of embedding, from light to deep
    ● Considerations for deployment flexibility
    ● Security integration considerations
    ● Avoiding data platform lock-in
