  • Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices Simona Rabinovici-Cohen, IBM, Phillip Viana, IBM, Sam Fineberg Recorded: Feb 16 2017 61 mins
    The demand for digital data preservation has increased drastically in recent years. Maintaining a large amount of data for long periods of time (months, years, decades, or even forever) becomes even more important given government regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, OSHA, and many others that define specific preservation periods for critical records.

    While the move from paper to digital information over the past decades has greatly improved information access, it complicates information preservation. This is due to many factors including digital format changes, media obsolescence, media failure, and loss of contextual metadata. The Self-contained Information Retention Format (SIRF) was created by SNIA to facilitate long-term data storage and preservation. SIRF can be used with disk, tape, and cloud based storage containers, and is extensible to any new storage technologies. It provides an effective and efficient way to preserve and secure digital information for many decades, even with the ever-changing technology landscape.
Join this webcast to learn:
    •Key challenges of long-term data retention
    •How the SIRF format works and its key elements
    •How SIRF supports different storage containers - disks, tapes, CDMI and the cloud
    •Availability of Open SIRF

    SNIA experts that developed the SIRF standard will be on hand to answer your questions.

  • Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine Paul Hellwig Director, Research & Development, at Elsevier Health Analytics Recorded: Feb 16 2017 47 mins
    Medicine is complex. Correlations between diseases, medications, symptoms, lab data and genomics are of a complexity that cannot be fully comprehended by humans anymore. Machine learning methods are required that help mining these correlations. But a pure technological or algorithm-driven approach will not suffice. We need to get physicians and other domain experts on board, we need to gain their trust in the predictive models we develop.

    Elsevier Health Analytics has developed a first version of the Medical Knowledge Graph, which identifies correlations (ideally: causations) between diseases, and between diseases and treatments. On a dataset comprising 6 million patient lives we have calculated 2000+ models predicting the development of diseases. Every model adjusts for ~3000 covariates. Models are based on linear algorithms. This allows a graphical visualization of correlations that medical personnel can work with.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss some of the challenges with deploying big data platforms, and how choosing solutions built with HDP on IBM Power Systems can offer tangible benefits and flexibility to accommodate changing needs.
  • Evolving the Industrial IoT Into Strategic Advantage Evolving the Industrial IoT Into Strategic Advantage Bill Roberts, Director, Global IoT Practice, SAS; Ted Connell, Director, Solution Architect Group, Intel Recorded: Feb 15 2017 56 mins
    Heavy industry was first to arrive at the IoT party, quickly recognizing the potential to augment existing processes and establish new protocols. As a result, organizations that embraced the industrial internet of things (IIoT) have been at the forefront of fine-tuning applications and establishing best practices. And while many of those practices have turned out to be impactful, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that the opportunity is much bigger with predictive analytics.

    We’ve entered a perfect storm where the falling costs of capturing, processing and analyzing data coincide with the explosion of data streams generated by millions of pieces of connected equipment, devices and systems. And the same technology that created the perfect storm has empowered customers with near-instant data and instantaneous engagement with each other and also with your organization. So the opportunities extend beyond tactical process improvements and have become both strategic and enterprise-wide.

    Recognizing and capitalizing on the opportunities requires an evolution of skills and mindset, made possible with key technology relationships. The Industrial IoT collaboration between SAS and Intel enables organizations to capture, process and analyze data. The end result is the ability to evolve their strategic advantage and realize the full value of their IIoT data.

    Tune in to this webinar to gain insights and best practices for evolving the industrial IoT into strategic advantage for your organization.

  • The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation The Data Warehouse in the Age of Digital Transformation Neil Raden, Principal Analyst, Hired Brains Research Feb 22 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In the past years of Big Data and digital transformation “euphoria”, Hadoop and Spark received most of the attention as platforms for large-scale data management and analytics. Data warehouses based on relational database technology, for a variety of reasons, came under scrutiny as perhaps no longer needed.

    However, if there is anything users have learned recently it’s that the mission of data warehouses is as vital as ever. Cost and operational deficiencies can be overcome with a combination of cloud computing and open source software, and by leveraging the same economics of traditional big data projects - scale-up and scale-out at commodity pricing.

    In this webinar, Neil Raden from Hired Brains Research makes the case that an evolved data warehouse implementation continues to play a vital role in the enterprise, providing unique business value that actually aids digital transformation. Attendees will learn:

    - How the role of the data warehouse has evolved over time
    - Why Hadoop and Spark are not replacements for the data warehouse
    - How the data warehouse supports digital transformation initiatives
    - Real-life examples of data warehousing in digital transformation scenarios
    - Advice and best practices for evolving your own data warehouse practice

  • Cross Talk: How Network & Security Tools Can Communicate For Better Security Cross Talk: How Network & Security Tools Can Communicate For Better Security Craig Sanderson, Sr. Dir. Prod Mktg, Infoblox; Dan York, Internet Society; Brandon Dunlap (Moderator) Feb 23 2017 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Working in silos, while never a good idea, is a reality in many organizations today. Security and network operations teams have different priorities, processes and systems. Security teams use various controls and tools to mitigate different kinds of threats which provides them with thousands of alerts on a daily basis. They often find it difficult to prioritize the threats to address first. What they may not know is that there is a whole piece of the puzzle they could be missing - core network services like DNS, DHCP and IPAM. These can provide a wealth of information and context on threats, which can help prioritize response based on actual risk and ease compliance. Join Infoblox and (ISC)2 on February 23, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern for a roundtable discussion on how to use ecosystem integrations between network and security tools for better security and compliance.

  • Cómo recuperar el control de sus datos móviles Cómo recuperar el control de sus datos móviles David Sanz - EMEA Endpoint & Mobile Competency Lead Feb 24 2017 11:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Los puestos de trabajo y los dispositivos móviles son habitualmente los aspectos más olvidados en la estrategia de gestión de datos empresarial. Sin embargo, la información presente en ordenadores portátiles, de escritorio y dispositivos móviles es uno de los activos de mayor valor para la organización, pese a que potencialmente se encuentra en máximo riesgo. De acuerdo con IDC hay alrededor de 1.300 millones de trabajadores móviles hoy en día, pero tan solo la mitad de las empresas utiliza algún tipo de backup para puestos de trabajo.

    La fuerza de trabajo móvil es cada vez mayor. Dichos usuarios manejan información fuera del dominio tradicional del departamento de TI y emplean soluciones de colaboración no corporativas. El coste potencial y el riesgo asociados al cumplimiento de la normativa y al eDiscovery, la necesidad de proteger el puesto de trabajo y de aportar soluciones de colaboración corporativas están claros y se encuentran en un punto de inflexión crucial.

    Acompáñenos en este webinar, donde analizaremos:
    - Cómo recuperar el control sobre lo que ocurre en los dispositivos móviles de los trabajadores
    - Cómo mitigar los riesgos asociados con los ataques cada vez más frecuentes de ransomware
    - Cómo aumentar la productividad con una plataforma segura para la compartición de archivos
