    Single View (of the customer): Data Quality (in a Big Data world) Davinity Powis, Pre-sales Consultant, Syncsort Jun 19 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Data is everywhere! Growing exponentially in size, and complexity too. In this session, we look specifically at the ‘Holy Grail’ of Single Customer View, and at some of these techniques required to achieve that in your own data. But why is it exclusive to Customer Data? Isn’t product data is just as important to a Product manager as Customer Data is to a Marketer or Salesperson? Davinity explores the DQ techniques which can be applied to any type or kind of data to keep it clean and fit for purpose. And is there any difference in achieving such high Data Quality in a Big Data space over more traditional environment? Tune in to find out…
  • 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 Jun 19 2018 3:00 pm UTC 45 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 If the process to update that data is batch or overnight, the data delivery may be fast, but the information may be outdated which can result in error-prone reporting and ineffective (or disastrous) business decisions.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

    Modernize and Migrate Applications Off Legacy Databases Dana Rafiee, Executive Director, Destiny Corporation & Wayne Monk, SVP Global Alliances and Channel, ASG Technologies Jun 19 2018 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Having the right processes run on the right platforms makes sense, but meeting this challenge can be harder than it seems. In many cases, these processes have been running on their current platforms for years and the team that set them up is no longer with the company. This type of situation leaves the IT department with big software maintenance costs and outdated infrastructure.

    Join ASG and Destiny on June 19th at 1:00pm EST for a live webinar as we share information and guidance to help IT managers modernize their legacy environment, including how to:
    •Understand upstream/downstream application interactions
    •Refactor to a modern toolset and architecture
    •Surface “unseen” personal data that may impact compliance risk
    •Leverage change analysis and application understanding into a foundation for regulatory compliance and ongoing application management

  • Top 5 Pitfalls of Developing and Deploying Smart Applications at the Edge
    Top 5 Pitfalls of Developing and Deploying Smart Applications at the Edge Desmond Tan, Senior Director, Zen Product Engineering, Actian Jun 20 2018 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Efforts to derive value from Edge Computing and IoT continue to grow. In addition to the multitude of PoCs taking place in the Cloud, scaled up implementations are increasingly looking at local persistent data and the underlying device and gateway technologies are evolving to accommodate this new design requirement. Central to this shift is the growth of developer communities around Android, iOS, embedded Linux and Windows, Intel/, ARM and others, driving a surge of new applications with locally managed and analyzed data on IoT/OT edge devices and gateways.

    Considerations for metadata management, data movement, security, and governance of data associated with these apps, overhead for processing and packaging, and security concerns will require on-device and gateway persistent storage. Flat file systems and other prior tools don’t meet modern embedded data management platform or analytics requirements.

    Join us to hear how to deliver persistent data management at the edge.

    - Avoid the hassle and security complications that ETL between things, gateways and datacenters will create.
    - Experience a real-world demo in Python with source code samples showing how you can code once and deploy to multiple target platforms.
