  • [#1] Big Data im Fokus: Der Data Catalog – Ihre Big Data Schatzkarte
    [#1] Big Data im Fokus: Der Data Catalog – Ihre Big Data Schatzkarte Thomas Bodenmüller-Dodek - Product Expert Big Data & Analytics, Informatica Recorded: Oct 19 2018 35 mins
    „You can´t use it, if you can´t find it” – Heutzutage werden in Unternehmen mehr Daten denn je gesammelt, gespeichert und genutzt. Studien und Umfragen zeigen jedoch, dass lieber gesammelt als genutzt wird.
    Woran liegt das? Eine Ursache hierfür ist, dass Unternehmen gar nicht wissen, welche Daten gesammelt werden, wo sie gespeichert werden und wie diese genutzt werden können. Es fehlt an Transparenz und Struktur.
    In unserem 45-minütigen Webinar möchten wir Ihnen anhand einiger Praxisbeispiele zeigen, wie Sie mit einem Data Catalog Informationen über alle Datentöpfe hinweg zentral zur Verfügung stellen können. Erfahren Sie, wie unsere Kunden davon profitieren und welche Herausforderungen mit einem Data Catalog gemeistert werden können.

    Reimagine Data Governance: Data Governance. Meet Data Security. Andy Joss, Head of Solutions & Data Governance, Steve Holyer, Solutions Specialist, Informatica Recorded: Oct 18 2018 59 mins
    With organizations collecting an ever-increasing volume of data, the risk of a data breach or falling foul of a regulator is also increasing. Data security, privacy and protection is fast becoming a “must have” requirement within many data programs.

    Organizations are starting to realize that there are potentially great synergies in having a much closer understanding of their data from both a governance and security viewpoint. Add in Artificial Intelligence and automation for remediation, together these capabilities are proving to be significant allies in the continuous battle of cyber-security and enabling Data Governance programs.

    This webinar explores how these two worlds can now better understand the role that each has to play, in supporting and protecting their organization.

    As part of the Reimagine Data Governance series of webinars, Informatica will demonstrate how having a closer relationship between the worlds of governance and security can enhance existing data use and data security capabilities. And how you, in taking that holistic approach, can provide governed and protected data to achieve key business outcomes.

    Cloud Security: The next generation Chris Hill, RVP, Public Cloud EMEA; Alex Hilton, Chief Executive, Cloud Industry Forum Oct 22 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Multi-Cloud or hybrid environments has become a growing strategy for many organisations moving their applications and data in the cloud as it gives organisations the ability to be flexible in what they need for their business. In fact, according to recent research by Computing, 26 per cent of enterprises surveyed were using a multi-cloud approach compared with 22 per cent last year. However, along with this approach one thing organisations should not forget is that the need for security does not diminish. As the cloud continues to offer more in services, organisations need to be aware of the protection they are responsible for to ensure their applications and workloads are safe.

    So how do organisations stay ahead of the curve with security as well as being able to manage these multi-cloud or hybrid environments?

  • Running Object Storage on a Single Server
    Running Object Storage on a Single Server John Bell, Sr. Consultant and Jamshid Afshar, Engineer Oct 23 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Massive scalability is one thing, but what if you want to run Object-Based Storage for a smaller shop? Can you start with a small hardware investment and run object-based storage on just one server? John Bell, Sr. Consultant, and Jamshid Afshar, Caringo Engineer, will explain how you can store, manage, search and deliver data with just one server, while maintaining the ability to scale out by simply plugging in additional servers as your data storage needs grow. They will explain how this “pay-as-you-grow” model can benefit organizations as they start to outgrow traditional SAN, NAS and Tape storage solutions.
  • Achieve Fully-automated Data Processing and Machine Learning Orchestration
    Achieve Fully-automated Data Processing and Machine Learning Orchestration Anya Rumyantseva, Data Scientist, Hitachi Vantara Oct 23 2018 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Building data science solutions for business does not solely rely on the intellectual capacity of data scientists. Besides leveraging their mathematical and analytical skills on models development, data science teams need to effectively address the hardship of:

    - working with big data sources and unstructured data,
    - spending too much time on data processing tasks,
    - deploying the final solution to production and automation.

    In this talk, we discuss the importance of tools for ETL/ELT and analytics orchestration for unleashing the full potential of data science teams.
  • Challenges Transitioning Machine Learning from Prototyping to Production Grade
    Challenges Transitioning Machine Learning from Prototyping to Production Grade Santi Adavani, Co-Founder of RocketML Oct 23 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The artificial intelligence revolution is being enabled by the rapid increase in data, computing power in the cloud, and hardware accelerators like GPUs and algorithm innovations. However, only < 5% of organizations have adopted or deployed AI in their operations and > 80% are gathering knowledge and prototyping.

    In this webinar, we identify the challenges of transitioning from Prototype to Production. We break them down into four categories of challenges:

    1) Code portability,
    2) Scalability,
    3) Hyperparameter optimization or Automated machine learning, and
    4) Model Deployment.

    In this talk, we will address challenges 1 & 2 using RocketML to aid in building production-grade AI applications. These techniques will not only improve data scientists' productivity, but will also reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) compared to market incumbents.

    The webinar is hosted by Fundoo.info and moderated by IITAGH Board Member.
