Big Data and Data Management

  • Your Self-Driving Car – How Did It Get So Smart?
    Your Self-Driving Car – How Did It Get So Smart? Michael Ger, Hortonworks; Seunghan Han & Andreas Pawlik, NorCom Jun 29 2017 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The march towards autonomous vehicles continues to accelerate. While expert opinion differs on the specific timing and use cases that will emerge first, few deny that self-driving cars are in our future.

    As we all can appreciate, “teaching” a vehicle to drive under the full range of conditions it will encounter (i.e. road conditions, weather conditions, behavior of other vehicles) is a daunting proposition. If merely the thought of this makes you nervous, you’re not alone – according to the American Automobile Association (AAA), 75 percent of consumers are not yet ready to embrace self-driving cars. However, that is the very challenge facing automakers – teaching vehicles to unfailingly assess and respond to any combination of operational conditions “on-the-fly” through discrete rules (algorithms) governing a vehicle’s behavior.

    Join Hortonworks and NorCom at the upcoming webinar as we discuss:

    •Evolution of the autonomous driving
    •Traditional data management approaches and main challenges associated with them
    •How NorCom and Hortonworks can address those challenges and accelerate the pace of autonomous development
  • Location Analytics: Use Cases for Improving Visualizations & Reports
    Location Analytics: Use Cases for Improving Visualizations & Reports Rick Styll, Product Management, SAS; AJ Rice, Alliance Manager, Esri Jun 29 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nearly 70 percent of business data contains some level of location information. But business analysts rarely use this data within their BI and analytics workflows.

    Location analytics is more than just putting points on a map. It’s part of a much larger picture of using location to provide context in visualizations, reports and analytics. Utilizing geographic data in descriptive and predictive analytics helps companies discover new patterns, identify location-specific opportunities, and get a complete picture before making business decisions.

    In this webinar, Esri and SAS discuss the role that location analytics can play in determining practical next steps for your organization. A product demonstration will be shown as well.

    We’ll answer:
    • How does location analytics add value to BI and analytics initiatives?
    • What are the right uses for location analytics?
    • What pitfalls should organizations consider as they implement processes and technology for analyzing geographic data?
    • Are special skill sets required to use location information?
    • How can organizations best develop a strategy for using geographic data?

  • Part 2: Future of SIEM—Sniff Out Malware & Spear-Phishing w/Behavioral Analytics
    Part 2: Future of SIEM—Sniff Out Malware & Spear-Phishing w/Behavioral Analytics Orion Cassetto, Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Exabeam. Anne Saita (Moderator) Jun 29 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Malware and spear-phishing continue to cause the most headaches for IT security teams. Over the years, attackers have become more sophisticated and SIEM systems have failed to keep up. Key indicators of emerging threats include lateral movement, where the attacker silently attempts to access multiple servers on the network, and account management, where the attacker escalates privilege or creates new privileged accounts. Detection of advanced threats like these require real time analytics and the ability to find signals within the very noisy security environment. Join Exabeam and (ISC)² on June 29, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern to learn how user behavior analytics automatically analyzes and scores activity for escalated risk allowing for quick attack detection.

  • Red Hat and Microsoft: Partnering to bring Enterprise Customers to the Cloud
    Red Hat and Microsoft: Partnering to bring Enterprise Customers to the Cloud Carl Lehmann - 451 Research Principal Analyst, Margaret Dawson - Red Hat, Jose Miguel Parrella - Microsoft Jun 29 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Join our webinar on the capabilities enabled between Microsoft and Red Hat, and how their IT ecosystems support and complement each other.

    For years Windows and Linux have been rival development and runtime environments used by two distinct development communities – .Net vs. J2EE. At least that’s what we thought. In fact, they are not rivals at all, really. Rather, they are both commonly used by nearly all enterprises to develop and execute the applications they need to run their businesses.

    Today, those applications are being modernized, containerized and redeployed across multiple clouds. Business and IT planners alike are rethinking how to develop new cloud-native applications and the infrastructure needed to deploy them to their best execution venue whether on-premises, in or across private, public or hybrid clouds. They expect the IT vendors and service providers they use to do more than just coexist. They expect partnerships dedicated to customer success – and none more so than among the two leading vendors in each community, Microsoft and Red Hat.

    In this webinar 451 Research Principal Analyst Carl Lehmann, Margaret Dawson, Global Product Marketing Manager at Red Hat
    and Jose Miguel Parrella,Sr Product Marketing Manager for Open Source at Microsoft will address:
    •How to overcome common challenges of application modernization, infrastructure management, and cloud deployment.
    •The partnership, and capabilities enabled therein, between Microsoft and Red Hat.
    •How Microsoft Azure and Red Hat ecosystems support and complement each other.

    Participants will learn how Microsoft and Red Hat build upon each other’s strengths in container-based, cloud-native application development, infrastructure deployment and operations to better serve their mutual customers through joint business practices, technology support, and ecosystem.

  • Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby
    Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage: Programming & Networking Had a Baby Rob Peglar, Symbolic IO, J Metz, Cisco, Alex McDonald, NetApp, Dror Goldenberg, Mellanox Jul 6 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    In this, the sixth entry in the “Everything You Wanted To Know About Storage But Were Too Proud To Ask,” popular webcast series we look into some of the nitties and the gritties of storage details that are often assumed.

    When looking at data from the lens of an application, host, or operating system, it’s easy to forget that there are several layers of abstraction underneath before the actual placement of data occurs. In this webcast we are going to scratch beyond the first layer to understand some of the basic taxonomies of these layers.

    In this webcast we will show you more about the following:

    •Storage APIs and POSIX
    •Block, File, and Object storage
    •Byte Addressable and Logical Block Addressing
    •Log Structures and Journaling Systems

    It’s an ambitious project, but these terms and concepts are at the heart of where compute, networking and storage intersect. Having a good grasp of these concepts ties in with which type of storage networking to use, and how data is actually stored behind the scenes.

    Join us on July 6th for this session. We look forward to seeing you there!

  • Building Next Generation Streaming Analytics Application - Within 10 Min
    Building Next Generation Streaming Analytics Application - Within 10 Min Wei Wang and George Vetticaden, Hortonworks Jul 12 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    To realize the full potential of modern data applications, organizations need to be able to capture perishable insights from data in motion. While flow management tools are available to help gather, route, filter and transform data from any source, companies have lacked equivalent tools for building the analytics apps needed to extract insight from streaming data.

    Imagine the power to build a fully functional streaming analytics application without writing a single line of code and within as little as 10min.
