  • How to Bring BI into the Big Data World
    How to Bring BI into the Big Data World Claudia Imhoff, renowned analyst & Founder - Boulder BI Brain Trust and Ajay Anand, VP Products & Marketing - Kyvos Insights Recorded: May 25 2018 63 mins
    Business intelligence (BI) has been at the forefront of business decision-making for more than two decades. Then along came Big Data and it was thought that traditional BI technologies could never handle the volumes and performance issues associated with this unusual source of data.

    So what do you do? Cast aside this critical form of analysis? Hardly a good answer. The better answer is to look for BI technologies that can keep up with Big Data, provide the same level of performance regardless of the volume or velocity of the data being analyzed, yet give the BI-savvy business users the familiar interface and multi-dimensionality they have come to know and love.

    This webinar will present the findings from a recent survey of Big Data and the challenges and value many organizations have received from their implementations. In addition, the survey will supply a fascinating look into what Big Data technologies are most commonly used, the types of workloads supported, the most important capabilities for these platforms, the value and operational insights derived from the analytics performed in the environment, and the common use cases.

    Attendees will also learn about a new BI technology built to handle Big Data queries with superior levels of scalability, performance and support for concurrent users. BI on Big Data platforms enables organizations to provide self-service and interactive on big data for all of their users across the enterprise.

    Yes, now you CAN have BI on Big Data platforms!

    It's Who You Know That Counts: Person-centric GDPR DSAR Fulfillment George Chedzemov, Director of Client Success, BigID Recorded: May 24 2018 34 mins
    Privacy is About People. If you don't know whose data you have, you can't protect their privacy. GDPR data subject access rights requires companies to put that principle into practice. Yet, existing tools can't tell you what personal information belongs to which data subject in order to respond to data subject requests.

    A person-centric approach to locating and understanding data enables companies to effectively tackle the most challenging GDPR requirement: fulfilling Data Subject Access Requests at scale, across data sources and in minutes, not days.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    - Why data subject access rights are a cornerstone of GDPR requirements
    - What are the elements of the data subject rights lifecycle
    - How a person-centric approach addresses GDPR requirements centered on data subject rights.
    - How a person-centric approach can bridge automation of request management with fulfillment at scale by IT teams.
    - What automation and fulfillment of a data subject access request utilizing a person-centric approach looks
  • Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum
    Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum Bob Glithero, PMM, Pivotal and James Curtis Senior Analyst, 451 Research Recorded: May 24 2018 56 mins
    Data is at the center of digital transformation; using data to drive action is how transformation happens. But data is messy, and it’s everywhere. It’s in the cloud and on-premises. It’s in different types and formats. By the time all this data is moved, consolidated, and cleansed, it can take weeks to build a predictive model.

    Even with data lakes, efficiently integrating multi-structured data from different data sources and streams is a major challenge. Enterprises struggle with a stew of data integration tools, application integration middleware, and various data quality and master data management software. How can we simplify this complexity to accelerate and de-risk analytic projects?

    The data warehouse—once seen as only for traditional business intelligence applications — has learned new tricks. Join James Curtis from 451 Research and Pivotal’s Bob Glithero for an interactive discussion about the modern analytic data warehouse. In this webinar, we’ll share insights such as:

    - Why after much experimentation with other architectures such as data lakes, the data warehouse has reemerged as the platform for integrated operational analytics

    - How consolidating structured and unstructured data in one environment—including text, graph, and geospatial data—makes in-database, highly parallel, analytics practical

    - How bringing open-source machine learning, graph, and statistical methods to data accelerates analytical projects

    - How open-source contributions from a vibrant community of Postgres developers reduces adoption risk and accelerates innovation

    We thank you in advance for joining us.

  • Data Innovation and SME Banking
    Data Innovation and SME Banking Felicia Meyerowitz Singh, Co-founder & CEO, Akoni Hub May 29 2018 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Data is increasingly available in open API format, and this is particularly applicable to SMEs and businesses - from accounting APIs to Open Banking


    We see a future of collaboration in business banking that will ultimately benefit SMEs/corporate clients. Businesses do not work in the same linear manner as consumers - companies have complex needs with multiple maturity periods. This requires algorithm driven technology utilising multiple sources for data innovation.

    Our platform utilises private and public data including data via Burrau van Dijk for company and sector data, ownership and Peps/sanctions; Fitch Solutions Financial Implied Ratings (FIRs) for global coverage of more than 23,000 banks including 20,000 previously unrated; and Defaqto for full coverage of business banking products, as well as OECD and Customs and Excise trade data. Add to this private data sources such as banking transactions via Open Banking, accounting via open APIs and tailored products via our panel banks.

    Business banking will undergo a transformation over the next decade, with change due to a combination of company / corporate demand and regulatory pressure on the banks. In the business banking space, banks and other financial institutions will revert to a focus on conventional banking, with increasing partnerships providing services to companies across the spectrum of financial products and more useful analytics tools linked to applicable products that change as the business life cycle and stage develop. Banks are considered digital identity guardians and have access to a wide range of data. When this is used with an appropriate Data Analytics platform, along with simple Product Prompts and product Execution, this will ensure that companies will benefit significantly from the changes underway in financial services.

  • Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA)
    Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA) Rick van der Lans, Independent Business Intelligence Analyst and Lakshmi Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Denodo May 30 2018 8:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically
    copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
    So, what’s the solution?
    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

    Attend this session to learn:

    • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
    • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
    • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.

    Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.

  • How to Use Microservices to Build a Data Lake on AWS
    How to Use Microservices to Build a Data Lake on AWS Sabyasachi Gupta, Software Architect May 30 2018 6:00 pm UTC 120 mins
    “Data is the new oil.” Just as we have to drill to get oil, we also need to mine data to get information out of it. Google, Facebook, Netflix and other titans of the digital era use data to build great products that touch every part of human life.

    Regardless of scale, building a managed data lake on AWS requires a robust and scalable technical architecture. They often use microservices during the build process. A microservice architecture is centered around building a suite of small services focused on business capabilities and are independently deployable. It uses lightweight protocols and run on its own processes, which makes a microservice architecture ideal for building decoupled, agile, and automatable data lake applications on AWS.

    Join this session with Sabyasachi Gupta, Software Architect at Zaloni, to learn more about:
    - The what and why of a microservices architecture
    - The different layers of a data lake stack
    - Why is metadata important and how to capture it in AWS
    - The relationship between Serverless and Microservices and available options on AWS
    - How to build a data lake using microservice architecture on AWS

  • Can we own the data about us?
    Can we own the data about us? Jeni Tennison, CEO, The Open Data Institute May 31 2018 10:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Post-Cambridge Analytica / Facebook the use and misuse of personal data is high in the public’s mind. But what does the story mean for data and our perception of how it should be controlled and owned?

    At In:Confidence 2018, the Open Data Institute’s Jeni Tennison made the argument that digital privacy rights require individual consumers to have ownership of data about them. Yet Personal data is often about multiple people, not just one, adding to the complexity of the debate around data ownership.

    Jeni questions whether a prospective future where we benefit from our decisions being informed by data while being protected from any harmful impacts is realistic. And how contributing to, developing and promoting a global rights framework for data might seem like a hard journey, but it is one we need to make if we are to use data to build a better future and better society for everyone.

    The data ownership and privacy debate is more relevant than ever. Tune in and explore as Jeni delves into the key talking points.
