  • Scaling Agile with SAFe and Metronome
    Scaling Agile with SAFe and Metronome Sudi Sankavaram, CIO, Radus Technology Solutions Recorded: Sep 18 2018 62 mins
    Teams have been adopting and practicing Agile for years. Scrum and Kanban are two popular approaches used by agile teams to plan and iterate their development cycles. While these approaches have transformed software development for individual teams, they lack the constructs needed to synchronize multiple teams, provide Companies with a mechanism to adapt to change, and deliver enterprise software and systems in the shortest sustainable lead time. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) leverages Agile practices and Lean product development to coordinate planning and delivery for multiple agile teams. This approach to scaling agile has led to the following benefits:

    · Increase in solution quality

    · Increase in productivity

    · Increased employee engagement

    · Faster time to market

    · Better predictability

    · Improved transparency

  • [Ep.21] Ask the Expert: Ethics in AI
    [Ep.21] Ask the Expert: Ethics in AI Alexey Malanov, Malware Expert, Kaspersky Lab Recorded: Sep 18 2018 49 mins
    This webinar is part of BrightTALK's Ask the Expert series.

    Alexey Malanov joined Kaspersky Lab in 2004, where he began his work as a virus analyst. He has since been appointed Head of Kaspersky's Anti-Malware Team and in 2012, shifted his focus to analyzing technology trends and risks.

    The threat posed by a Strong AI (artificial intelligence where the machine's intellectual capability is functionally equal to a human's) is well-considered in many science fiction films. But the invention of a Strong AI will take many years, so we can afford not to hurry with the study of "laws of robotics."

    However, we are already facing growing concerns. The use of machine learning in various fields has shown that algorithms often make strange, discriminatory and difficult-to-understand decisions. Moreover, it has been clearly demonstrated that a person can cheat algorithms to achieve desired results.

    Alexey addresses some of the looming issues surrounding the AI algorithms that are becoming a part of our daily lives, and will increasingly affect us and our decisions.

  • Sharpening Your Focus – Gaining Visibility & Managing the Insider Threat
    Sharpening Your Focus – Gaining Visibility & Managing the Insider Threat Mayank Choudhary, VP Products, ObserveIT; John Carnes, Spencer Wilcox, PMN Resources; Brandon Dunlap (Moderator) Recorded: Sep 13 2018 61 mins
    It’s no secret that limited visibility into user actions keeps cybersecurity professionals up at night. The right level of visibility into user action and access can produce positive insights that enable business results. Additionally, indicators of out of policy activities can stop an insider threat before it becomes a full-blown incident. Research from The Ponemon Institute showed that financial services institutions faced the highest insider threat costs of any other industry (at $12.05 million annually) -- a very concrete reason to address an otherwise invisible problem. Join ObserveIT and (ISC)2 on September 13, 2018 at 1:00PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on insider threats including the most important components to gaining full cyber visibility: user activity, data activity, and analytics, best practices for managing insider threats and the key question organizations should be asking to mitigate insider threats.
  • MDM as an enabler for Digital Transformation
    MDM as an enabler for Digital Transformation Matt Aslett, 451 Research & Shyam Potta, Riversand Recorded: Sep 13 2018 53 mins
    Master Data Management has been around for many years, and has historically earned itself something of a bad name as a silo that is the preserve of the IT department, and – when badly applied and enforced – a bottleneck that slows innovation. However, there are fresh and new approaches to consider that mean that - when properly applied and enforced – MDM can serve as the basis for enterprises becoming more data-driven as part of digital transformation initiatives. For example, baking MDM into new enterprise applications turns one of the traditional criticisms of MDM on its head by directly linking MDM to the delivery of business value and directly involving the users most likely to benefit from it.

    Join Matt Aslett, Research Vice President, Data Platforms and Analytics at 451 Research and Shyam Potta, Vice President of Product Management at Riversand as they explore how MDM can help establish data as a foundation for digital transformation efforts.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    •Current trends in the MDM market and how MDM enables digital transformation initiatives
    •The role of data – and more importantly, how organizations can leverage data to create better and faster business outcomes
    •Collaborative, self-service data management approaches that lead to insights

    Depth and complexity of regional and global banks places an even higher level of urgency on algorithmic enablement than on other financial institutions.

    Join TIBCO’s strategy leaders David Rosen and Shawn Rogers for a discussion of the latest trends and capabilities required for financial services leadership. Four major themes define the algorithmic imperative:

    - Customer differences highlight the importance of deep and nuanced understanding of segments, propensities for action, engagement preferences and sensitivities to pricing
    - Channel and evolution forces banks to think analytically with respect to the investments they make in reshaping their distribution networks
    - Customer expectations with regard to experience require smarter processes both at the point of engagement and at the back-end decision systems that power the journeys
    - Wide product breadth forces banks to take individual approaches to design, recommendation and pricing

    Learn how each theme is affected by organizational leadership, strategic business initiatives and the underlying data science that enables the transformation towards becoming an Algorithmic Bank.

    Speakers and topics for this episode include:

    Farah Al Shanik, Clemson University - Equivalence Terms for Text Search Bundle
    Text Search Bundle (TSB) is an open source project for searching on XML text documents & contains many subtasks, one being equivalence terms. We can consider equivalence terms as strong synonyms for TSB. Several term equivalences: initialism, abbreviation, synonyms & similarity based on context. We used HPCC Systems to develop a Text search tool via Moby thesaurus to return a set of synonyms, word2vec algorithm to return similar words, then built a dataset for state names & its abbreviation to return the set of related documents while improving the initialism for TSB to find strings with or without the punctuation.

    Soukaina Filali, Georgia State University - Fraud Detection on Transactional Data using a Time Series Mining Approach
    The project consists of detecting fraudulent pre-paid cards from non-fraudulent ones using mined patterns on their respective historical bank transactions data. There are numerous types of card programs, each of which comes with different fraud risk levels. Every fraud category has representative patterns that a human manually monitors on a daily basis. The goal here is to combine the domain expert engineered features with time series shapelets mining techniques to provide an automated fraud detection solution, which can potentially help in early fraud detection.

    Lili Xu, Clemson University & Gus Reyna, LexisNexis - Using HPCC Systems ML to Map Thousands of Public Records Data Descriptions to Standard Codes
    There is a challenge of incorporating public records data into business processes given disparate descriptions across states for similar events, and finding standards giving a consistent meaning for use. This session tells the story of how HPCC Systems ML addressed the problem of mapping thousands of disparate public record data descriptions to a corresponding set of standard codes.

  • Building Modern Apps at Cloud Scale with Data Services
    Building Modern Apps at Cloud Scale with Data Services Kannan Muthukkaruppan, Co-Founder and CEO of YugaByte Sep 19 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A number of modern, geo-distributed apps are being built in verticals such as retail, finance and SaaS. In an increasingly multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud world, the applications are becoming portable, but the databases are not. Enterprises are seeking to re-platform the data layer for scalability, developer friendliness and cloud-neutrality.

    The transactional database tier powering these apps has been a high-latency, hard-to-scale, master-slave RDBMS for a long time. Multi-master configurations or the use of a separate NoSQL DB (for multi-region data distribution) are common solutions. However, none of these solutions achieve the desired business outcomes of high customer satisfaction, increased data protection, and regulatory compliance.

    This talk will dive into how it is necessary to unify the best of SQL and NoSQL into one database in order to deliver the above business outcomes, and how YugaByte is helping democratize the transactional database layer by offering a single non-proprietary database that can span public and private clouds. YugaByte’s value proposition is strong for both CIOs, who can avoid cloud vendor lock-in at the database layer, and for developers, who don’t have to re-architect existing applications because of YugaByte’s built-in native compatibility to popular NoSQL and SQL interfaces.

    The Webinar is hosted by Fundoo.info along with IITAGH Board Members.

  • Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service
    Why brands like Amazon are using “dumb” bots for smart service Abinash Tripathy Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift Sep 20 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Reportedly, 44% of Americans would rather scrub a toilet than call customer support. And heeding that cry for help back in 2016 or so, companies across the land stepped up to the plate, taking customer service from the phone to texting and messaging with AI-powered, NLP-reliant smart chatbots that could tell jokes, offer small talk, place taco orders, and more.

    Where those messenger bots fell down, though, was in actually understanding customer intent and delivering on-point customer service. So companies were left with frustrated customers who’d still rather get a root canal than talk on the phone, but left with a broken messenger-based solution that only made the experience worse.

    The answer: Make bots "dumber," to make customer service smarter. Simpler rules-based chatbots are easy to implement, easy to use, 99-percent effective web and mobile-based messenger apps that don't try to hold conversations — they just solve customer service issues, fast.

    To learn more about why companies like Amazon are dumping the NLP bots and going all-in on a new generation of rules-based chatbots, don’t miss this VB Live event!

    You’ll learn:
    * The difference between NLP and rules-based bots and why it matters
    * Why companies like Amazon are turning away from natural language processing-driven bots to rules-based bots
    * How to deliver mobile and web-based customer service that works, using the right bots.
    * How rules-based bots make the customer journey more effective

    Speakers:
    * Abinash Tripathy, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Helpshift
    * Mitch Lee, Manager, Credit Karma and Co-Founder, Penny
    * Leslie Joseph, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research
    * Rachael Brownell, Moderator, VentureBeat

  • The Role of Data Virtualization in an API Economy
    The Role of Data Virtualization in an API Economy Paul Moxon, VP Data Architecture and Chief Evangelist, Denodo Sep 20 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Digital Transformation, even though a cliche, is definitely on top of every CEO's strategic initiative list. At the heart of any digital transformation, no matter the industry or the size of the company, there is an API strategy. Application programming interfaces (APIs) are the connection points between one application and another, and as such, they enable applications to build on each other, extend each other, and work with each other. Taken together, APIs represent a thriving ecosystem of developers that is showing no sign of slowing down.

    Attend this webinar to learn:

    * How data virtualization greatly enhances the capabilities of an API
    * How data virtualization works as a service container, as a source for microservices and as an API gateway
    * How data virtualization can create managed data services ecosystems in a thriving API economy

    Maximizing the business benefits of your Inhouse customer data Monica Mullen, Solutions Marketing Manager and Marcus Kästel, Senior Manager, Deloitte Consulting Sep 21 2018 2:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Competing on customer experience in retail is not just a passing fad – it’s here to stay. Customers expect more, want convenience, and they change quickly. Retailers have responded by introducing new channels, services, and personalized marketing promotions to capture customers’ attention and wallet share. What does it take to really take to engage with customers?  The answer is hidden in your data. According to Forbes, 80% of data is dark and untouched - meaning it’s never actually used to make improvements or changes deemed necessary by the customer.
    In this discussion you’ll learn what is possible as we review how you can create a trusted 360-degree view of your customer and put the customer truly at the center of your operations.  We’ll review how retailers of all types are delivering a customer experience that sets them apart from other brands to drive consumer loyalty.  And we’ll share the best practices and use cases retailers have adopted to get to know their customers better by unleashing the disruptive power of their data.
