    Low Carbon ICT: Green Rating Investment Tool, Carbon Fee Report & Data Centers Jakub Bartnicki, Adina Braha-Honciuc and Derek Webster Recorded: Nov 21 2017 60 mins
    Today the services, or tertiary sector, is driving the European economy, generating around 70 % of EU GDP and employment . It’s Energy Consumption has been growing continuously since 2008, with just trade premises and offices clocking up over 50%. Hence the importance of making this sector more energy efficient and reducing its carbon footprint.

    Energy efficiency has become a new resource itself: it’s competitive, cost effective, and widely available. But, it seems that 74% of people think that organisations are still not doing enough to cut their carbon emission and tackle climate change . Lack of knowledge and financial constraints are two of the main reasons behind this.

    Being aware of your organisation’s footprint will allow you to reduce sources of carbon from your company’s operations and start planning a carbon neutral journey. So how do you get started?
    The ICTFOOTPRINT.eu webinar will ensure you’re on the ball in low carbon footprint.

    Who are our speakers?

    Jakub Bartnicki: Energy & Built Environment Services Manager at Bureau Veritas, will introduce the Green Rating for Energy Performance Contracts, a technical and financial assessment methodology developed through the Horizon2020-funded Trust EPC South project.

    Adina Braha-Honciuc: Government Affairs Manager – EU Policy at Microsoft, will showcase the Microsoft Carbon Fee report. The company reduced energy and emissions, bought clean energy to cover what it could not reduce and invested in offset projects for the carbon Microsoft cannot reduce or replace. These efforts are funded by Microsoft internal carbon fee, which charges all Microsoft’s business groups for their carbon footprint.

  • AOC/DAC Cable Testing in Data Centers
    AOC/DAC Cable Testing in Data Centers Guylain Barlow, Viavi Recorded: Nov 20 2017 60 mins
    Data Centers vary widely in nature and can be roughly classified as hyperscale, multi-tenant, and private. A critical and common component in the operation of such data centers is the installation and maintenance of the physical cabling infrastructure. A fundamental change taking place is the evolution from cables using classic connectors on copper (RJ-45) or fiber optics (LC) to cables terminated by pluggables such as SFP or QSFP. This represents a new challenge as these cables, called Active Optical Cable (AOC) or Direct Attach Copper (DAC), are not easily validated and tested.

    During this webinar, John Fleming, Head of Data Governance at BNY Mellon, will share how they:

    •Focus on a culture of “quality of everything” with a detailed change management program to help the organization adjust
    •Gain return on investment across all data sources and departments

  • Measuring Customer Lifetime Value Across Platforms, Devices and Apps
    Measuring Customer Lifetime Value Across Platforms, Devices and Apps Nicolas Nadeau, President, Exostatic Nov 30 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Companies with multiple products often struggle to calculate accurate Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV) across their portfolio. This is because user data is often analyzed in silos so companies are unable to get a clear picture of ROI and CLTV across platforms, devices and apps.

    In this webinar we’ll look at how you can apply a holistic and complete approach to your CLTV and ROI through the lens of gaming companies, though this technique is applicable for any company who has products spanning platforms.

    We’ll also explore:
    How the integral power of data in business has shifted over the past 10 years.
    Discover the current technologies and processes used to analyze data across different platforms by combining multiple data streams, looking at examples in brand and portfolio-based LTV.
    How to process and centralize dozens of varying data streams.

    Nicolas Nadeau will speak from his extensive experience and show how leveraging data from multiple product strategies spanning many platforms can be highly beneficial for your company.
  • Beyond the Data Lake: Self-service Marketplaces on the rise
    Beyond the Data Lake: Self-service Marketplaces on the rise Matt Aslett, Research Director, Data Platforms & Analytics, 451 Research Paul Barth, CEO, Podium Data Nov 30 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The idea of the data lake was alluring; the means to having data at your fingertips, filtered, profiled, secure and business-ready for data consumers to rapidly derive higher-levels of business value. However, this widely adopted concept didn’t come with an instruction manual.
    The past few years have been turbulent times for enterprise data and analytics. In this live discussion, the presenters look beyond the lake, discussing the combination of self-service data preparation and data management and governance as one; a truly functional data marketplace or “data bazaar”. In addition, they will touch on other key enablers fueling the adoption of the self-service marketplace, including;
    •Data as a service,
    •Smart data ingestion – validation/profiling,
    •Smart data cataloging/search,
    •Data governance,
    •Machine-learning-driven recommendations,
    •Data collaboration.

    Cutting Through the FUD Factor – The Reality of Machine Learning Seth Geftic, Dir Product Mgmt, Sophos; Dr. Paulo Shakarian, ASU; Brandon Dunlap, Moderator Nov 30 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Machine learning (aka Artificial Intelligence) can be found in the marketing literature of a number of new solutions and offerings in the marketplace. But what exactly is it? FUD? Magic Dust? The “Next Big Thing”? There’s a lot of confusion and a lot of questions around this topic. What’s the false positive detection rate? How often does it need to be updated? Does it scale well? Join Sophos and (ISC)2 to explore these questions and more on November 30, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern in our next ThinkTank webcast.
