  • Training Snapshot: Proximity Searching From CloudNine
    Training Snapshot: Proximity Searching From CloudNine Brian Kelley Recorded: Feb 22 2018 5 mins
    A snapshot demonstration of the process and syntax required to perform proximity searches within CloudNine to locate responsive terms that are not only in the same document, but close to each other without having to be in an exact phrase.

    When performing keyword searching, the challenge to performing those searches effectively is to balance recall (retrieving responsive documents with hits) and precision (not retrieving too many non-responsive documents with hits). One way to achieve that balance is through proximity searching, which is simply searching for two or more words that appear close to each other in the document. Proximity searching is more precise then an AND search (where two terms can appear in the document together but be completely unrelated) with more recall than a phrase search (where the terms must be exactly together in that order), so proximity searching can be a valuable search strategy for striking the proper balance in your search results.

    Training Snapshot Presenter: Brian Kelley

    Brian is the Director of Customer Success for CloudNine. At CloudNine, Brian manages training, support and customer success efforts for CloudNine's Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) eDiscovery clients.

  • Trends in the Modern Data and Analytics Market and Industry Forecasts for 2018
    Trends in the Modern Data and Analytics Market and Industry Forecasts for 2018 CTO, Ruhollah Farchtchi & Jake Flomenberg Partner at Accel Partners Recorded: Feb 22 2018 61 mins
    Silicon valley venture capitalist Jake Flomenberg gets to see, track and make investments in the evolution of big picture technology trends across areas such as big data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and emerging modern data platforms and data types that are enabling organizations to be data and analytics-driven. Data driven companies make more effective information backed decisions and tend to significantly outcompete their peers operating on guesses and gut feel. Some companies are now even selling ‘data products’, for example aircraft engine manufacturers tracking and analyzing huge volumes of engine performance data to enable predictive maintenance, fixing things before failure to avoid costs and negative impact on customers.

    Jake will discuss trends he’s seeing related to the data analytics market, such as the growing need for self-service data discovery on very large volumes of data, analytics on streams of data, analytics on unstructured data, and contextual analytics embedded inside of software vendor and enterprise applications. He’ll discuss the characteristics of these markets, where he sees these markets going in the future, and why his firm chose to invest in a company like Zoomdata.

    Zoomdata CTO Ruhollah Farchtchi will then discuss industry trends he has forecast for 2018 including the eclipsing of relational databases by modern data platforms for doing analytics, how the cloud has changed the game for application development, and how working with streaming data is becoming the new normal. He’ll also discuss trends that are more specifically relevant to Zoomdata such as how to leverage the value of company’s investments in modern elastically scalable back-end data infrastructure and how to get corresponding value on the front-end, such as the ability to analyze and get insights from huge volumes of data, streaming data, and unstructured data types.

  • Customer Support through Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning
    Customer Support through Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning Robin Marcenac, Sr. Managing Consultant, IBM, Ross Ackerman, Dir. Digital Support Strategy, NetApp, Alex McDonald, SNIA CSI Recorded: Feb 22 2018 60 mins
    Watson is a computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO, Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy! (where it beat its human competitors) and was then used in commercial applications, the first of which was helping with lung cancer treatment.

    NetApp is now using IBM Watson in Elio, a virtual support assistant that responds to queries in natural language. Elio is built using Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities. These enable Elio to analyze unstructured data by using natural language processing to understand grammar and context, understand complex questions, and evaluate all possible meanings to determine what is being asked. Elio then reasons and identifies the best answers to questions with help from experts who monitor the quality of answers and continue to train Elio on more subjects.

    Elio and Watson represent an innovative and novel use of large quantities of unstructured data to help solve problems, on average, four times faster than traditional methods. Join us at this webcast, where we’ll discuss:

    •The challenges of utilizing large quantities of valuable yet unstructured data
    •How Watson and Elio continuously learn as more data arrives, and navigates an ever growing volume of technical information
    •How Watson understands customer language and provides understandable responses

    Learn how these new and exciting technologies are changing the way we look at and interact with large volumes of traditionally hard-to-analyze data.

    Briefings Part 2: The Hunt for IoT and it’s Threat to Modern Life Sara Boddy, Director of F5 Labs Threat Research, F5; Brandon Dunlap, Brightfly (Moderator) Mar 1 2018 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Our modern world depends on healthy, functioning, IoT devices. Unfortunately many of them are terribly insecure. Cyber attackers know this and have been aggressively compromising IoT devices for years. For the past two years, F5 Labs has been tracking cyber attackers as they hunt, infect, and build “Thingbots” - botnets made from IoT devices. This hunt has developed sizable thingbots like the infamous Mirai, and many others that have the capability to launch globally destructive attacks. These attacks can significantly impact modern life because of IoT’s presence within power systems, transportation systems, airport monitors, emergency warning systems, and security cameras.

    How to Drive Adoption of Search-Driven Analytics Across your Organization Cindy Villamil & Taylor Culver, Sterling Talent Solutions, Sean Zinsmeister, Head of Product Marketing, ThoughtSpot Mar 2 2018 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Sterling Talent Solutions, the world's largest background screening provider performs over ten million background checks a year. This ultimately left the firm with millions of transactional events that need to be trove through to conduct analysis and insights into how their product and performance is delivering for customers. In the past, the team went through an expert reporting team where everything lived in Excel. With only a small group of data experts to service the business users, the results were a massive backlog and long waiting time for managers who needed answers.

    To solve this challenge, Sterling turned to search-driven analytics which gave non-technical business users the ability to answer ad-hoc questions fast – helping reduce their BI backlog by 60%.

    Mehr als ein Backup-Ziel: Cloud für Disaster-Recovery Ashutosh Tamhankar und Robert Romanski Mar 7 2018 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Disaster-Recovery: kostspielig und komplex?

    Viele sehen das so, denn es bedarf meist mehrerer Schichten teurer Hardware und Software sowie ein kontinuierliches Change-Management. Kein Wunder also, dass „DR-Test” nicht gerade das Lieblingsthema der IT-ler ist.

    Die Cloud macht es einfacher, Disaster-Recovery zu planen und zu implementieren. Aber es braucht ein effizientes Datenmanagement, um tatsächlich DR-Zeit und -Kosten zu sparen. Die erfolgreiche Wiederherstellung von virtuellen Maschinen, Anwendungen und dem Geschäftsbetrieb ganz allgemein erfordert, dass Daten effizient in die Cloud verlagert und dort auch effizient verwaltet werden können.

    Investieren Sie 45 Minuten und lernen Sie in diesem Webinar, wie Sie…

    * für diverse Typen an Daten, VMs und Anwendungen die richtige Strategie der Wiederherstellung wählen
    * durch eine einheitliche Oberfläche und Plattform für alle Belange rund um die Datensicherung die Komplexität der Disaster-Recovery verringern
    * Risiken minimieren mithilfe von integrierten Benachrichtigungen, Kontrollen und Berichten zu Ihren SLAs
    * menschliche Fehler und manuelle Eingriffe reduzieren, indem komplexe und ungewöhnliche DR-Szenarien entwickelt werden
    * DR-relevante Aktionen wie z.B. DR-Tests oder (un-)geplante Ausfallsicherungen optimieren

    Kurz gesagt:
