From automated vehicles to ride hailing apps, transportation as we know it is changing - and fast. But new technologies alone won't help communities build the efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation networks communities want. In fact, these innovative technologies could do just the opposite, especially if they are not deployed wisely. Cities must collect the right data and enact the right policies to ensure they do not exacerbate problems like inequity and traffic, and to hold themselves accountable to the promise of new mobility technologies.
In this webinar, you will find out why - and how - the smartest cities of tomorrow will be those that adopt data-driven transportation strategies today. Join for Laura Schewel's presentation to gain insights into:
• Why the status quo for transportation data collection is no longer good enough
• The types of Massive Mobile Data that are useful for transportation and urban planning
• Algorithmic processing techniques that are critical for making this data useful
• Case studies from California and Virginia that demonstrate why Massive Mobile Data drives more effective transportation planning
• A forward-looking blueprint for using Massive Mobile Data to maximize the potential benefits of new transportation technologies - and minimize negative impacts
Laura Schewel founded StreetLight Data, a mobility analytics provider, after spending more than a decade as an advanced transportation researcher and statistician at the Rocky Mountain Institute and FERC. She has particular expertise in transportation systems, sustainability and safety, and vehicle/system modeling and analysis.

Whenever there is data, there is the chance to visualize it and gain valuable insights that can drive change and improvements. Governments have realized the potential that data holds for transforming our towns, cities, living spaces and communities to better address the needs of our modern society.
Governments may want to change public transport services to suit commuters who move away from city centers due to increasing living costs, or develop programs that deliver more support services to areas showing high incidences of mental illnesses, or simply monitor bike traffic to assess the necessity of additional cycle lanes and bike share programs in our capitals. Data and data visualization can help us identify the needs of our communities and can support us in addressing them effectively.
In this webinar Andy and Eva will present examples of Government using data to improve services for communities and will share how you can get involved through analyzing open data and becoming part of the wider 'dataviz' community.
We will examine challenges regarding business model design in the emerging context of the Internet of Things (IoT).
An unrefined IoT business model implies a significant risk in terms of investment and implementation.
The key question is, "How can IoT application models be subjected to a reality check taking into account challenges pertaining technology, organization and target markets?"
Moving from A-B is slowly being revolutionised through data. Car-sharing and ride-hailing are just the beginning. Thousands of connected devices are currently monitoring data points, and although stand-alone analysis can be useful, true innovation occurs when these data sets are combined to transform into something new.
In the near future, IoT data explosion and the API revolution will collide to change city planning, urban movement and the role of the car in the 21st century.
First off, we set out to understand what big data means in the context of transportation, answering questions such as what is it, where is it coming from, and what can you do with it.
- Next, we'll zoom out and apply these learning to transport innovation in a wider context, considering how it will influence concepts such as urban movement, social mobility, and quality of life.
- Finally, we'll discuss the relationship between open data and innovation.

For decades “things” have been connected to the Internet. Embedded in carefully planned end-to-end solutions, the what and why of the data arising from these devices has often been hard-coded. In other words, in the M2M world, it is usually clear from the outset what is going to happen with the data. In a future IoT, this won’t necessarily be the case. In a world full of connected devices, the meaning and the potential of the device data is only going to become clear in the context where it is needed in.
But how can software tell that your connected thermometer is useful for a medical application, or that a car in the drive way is likely an indicator of your partner’s presence? This is where device catalogues, information models and ontologies come in handy.
While the talk is not specifically tailored towards a smart city focus, it should become clear how these technologies can be useful in such environment.
Machine Learning is a game changer for business process optimization – enabling organizations to achieve levels of cost and quality efficiency never imagined previously. For the past 30 years, business process optimization was a tedious, time-consuming manual effort. Those tasked with this effort had to examine process output quality and review a very limited set of operational data to identify optimization opportunities based on historical process performance. Process changes would require re-measurement and comparison to pre-change data to evaluate the effectiveness of the change. Often, improvement impacts were either un-measurable or failed to satisfy the expectation of management.
With modern machine-learning capabilities, process management professionals are able to integrate a broad array of sensors and monitoring mechanisms to capture large volumes of operational data from their business processes. This data can be ingested, correlated and analyzed in real-time to provide a comprehensive view of process performance. Before machine learning, managing the signals from instrumented processes was limited to either pre-defined scenarios or the review of past performance. These limitations have now been removed.
In business process optimization, there is an important distinction to be made between “change” and “improvement.” Machine-learning systems can correlate a large diversity of data sources – even without pre-defined relationships. They provide the ability to qualify operational (process) data with contextual (cost/value) data to help process managers quantify the impacts of inefficiencies and the potential benefits of changes. This is particularly important when developing a business justification for process optimization investments.

You know GDPR is coming. And with it are substantial penalties for noncompliance. What do you need to do to ensure that you are ready?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union regulation set to go into effect May 25, 2018. This regulation requires that you strengthen data protection and management technologies and practices if you do business in the EU, have employees or customers that are EU citizens, or otherwise store or access data about European Union citizens. Among other things, GDPR addresses how personal data can be exported, the right for a citizen to control and delete their own personal data, data protection requirements and how data breaches are to be treated and a variety of other data and process-related rules and standards.
In this webinar, Tony Fisher, Senior Vice President of Business Development & Strategy at Zaloni, will discuss where GDPR sits in the world of big data, overall data lake strategies that help with compliance, and how metadata management is key to that strategy.
- Metadata management
- GDPR compliance and best practices
- GDPR technologies

The volume of data streaming into the data center has been growing exponentially for decades. Bandwidth requirements are expected to continue growing 25 percent to 35 percent per year. At the same time, lower latency requirements continue to escalate. As a result, the design of services and applications—and how they are delivered—is rapidly evolving.
Instead of a single dedicated server, information requests coming into the data center are now fulfilled by multiple servers cooperating in parallelThe traditional three-tier network is quickly being replaced by spine-and-leaf networks. As a result, the physical infrastructure must be able to support higher link speeds and greater fiber density while enabling quick and easy migration to new more demanding applications.
This webinar will address:
Solutions, support & decisions
40G or 25G lanes?
Preterminated vs field-terminated cables
Duplex or Parallel transmissions
Singlemode, multimode or wideband multimode fiber?
