  • Empower your Enterprise with a Self-Service Data Marketplace
    Empower your Enterprise with a Self-Service Data Marketplace
    Aashish Majethia, Senior Solutions Engineer Recorded: Feb 13 2019 38 mins
    Analysts need timely access to enterprise data in order to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing environment. Typically, business users need to request access through the IT department, which can be a waiting game, either because of technological roadblocks, governance restrictions or both. This adds more work, more process, and more frustration on both sides. Having the ability to find data sets, examine, update, and provision the data themselves allows business users to move quickly and frees IT to work on higher priority items.

    A modern data platform should provide a self-service data marketplace that gives right-sized governed access to data. The security permissions allow IT to define who needs access to the correct data at the appropriate stage of the data pipeline. This becomes quite complicated in regulated environments. Users should be able to search for data they have access to, explore and potentially update the metadata associated, and provision it into a sandbox when ready.

    Join us as Aashish Majethia, a Senior Solutions Engineer, dives into the self-service data marketplace and what is required to make it successful. He will cover topics including:
    - Catalogs
    - Self-service data preparation
    - Governance considerations and how they can enable a more agile data-driven enterprise

Corporate audit has the data and knowledge of the business to evaluate organization maturity and agility to take on new initiatives and the related risks.

  • So You’ve Got a Data Catalog...Now What?
    So You’ve Got a Data Catalog...Now What?
    Scott Gidley, Vice President of Product Feb 27 2019 7:00 pm UTC 40 mins
    Achieving actionable insights from data is the goal of any organization. To help in this regard, data catalogs are being deployed to build an inventory of data assets that provides both business and IT users a way to discover, organize and describe enterprise data assets. This is a good first step that helps all types of users easily find relevant data to extract insights from.

    Increasingly, end users want to take the next step in provisioning or procuring this data into a sandbox or analytics environment for further use. Attend this session to see how organizations are looking to build actionable data catalogs via a data marketplace, that allow self-service access to data without sacrificing data governance and security policies.

    Learn how to provide governed access and visibility to the data lake while still staying on track and within budget. Join Scott Gidley, Zaloni’s Vice President of Product, as he discusses:
    - Architecting your data lake to support next-gen data catalogs
    - Rightsizing governance for self-service data
    - Where a data catalog falls short and how to address
    - Success use cases

    Going Beyond e-Signature: Automate your Agreement Processes
    Alex Goulding, Major Account Executive Feb 28 2019 12:00 pm UTC 60 mins

  • Sourcing and Vendor Management – A Critical Component of Digital Strategy
    Sourcing and Vendor Management – A Critical Component of Digital Strategy
    Aaron Polikaitis, VP, Vendor Sourcing & Management, IDC's IT Executive Program Feb 28 2019 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    CIOs, CPOs and business unit leaders overwhelmingly agree that technology sourcing and procurement is critical for digital transformation and legacy system modernization. Nevertheless, recent IDC research confirms that technology sourcing and procurement organizations are challenged to deliver what their businesses require. IT and line of business executives report of their procurement organizations that:
    • 54% do not understand business needs
    • 62% are undermined by shadow procurement
    • Only 10% work effectively within cross-functional teams

    Procurement organizations have a choice of transforming themselves or watching other enterprise organizations assume the responsibility for sourcing the technology that supports key business initiatives. In this IDC web conference, we will identify the top challenges identified by Procurement, IT, and LOB executives, and discuss strategies for transforming procurement organizations from tactical administrative centers to strategic sourcing partners for the enterprise.
  • Mindfulness Mapped: A Leader’s Guide to the Present Moment
    Mindfulness Mapped: A Leader’s Guide to the Present Moment
    George Kinder, Kinder Institute of Life Planning Mar 4 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Step boldly into your greatness by accessing the present moment. Thought leader, mindfulness teacher/author, and finance guru George Kinder unveils his life’s work with a Map of Mindfulness. He uses the map to explain new forms of leadership, economics, and democracy all rooted in the present moment.

    This radical 60-minute talk offers insight into how you can personally apply his methods to access your inner leader and enhance your performance in every aspect of life: at work, with your family, and in your relationships. Kinder explores how strong leadership skills come from being present. Always residing in the present moment means you are ready for anything from inspired action to empathic wisdom.

    His leadership system democratizes entrepreneurial spirit, maximizing both innovation and growth across society as it maximizes the efficient allocation of human capital. He shifts the frame of economic thinking by grounding all of space and time in the present moment and argues that moments of freedom rather than moments of transaction become our focus. He proposes self-knowledge as a more sustainable motivator than self-interest.

    In just one hour, you will understand the present, how to access it, and how it enhances your leadership potential. You’ll discover how to live in the moment and inspire others. You’ll gain a new way of visioning what is possible for the organizations and communities you represent and the tools to take steps to enact change now.

    Kinder’s work aims to impact civilization. He’s recently launched a grassroots movement of community conversations happening globally that asks attendees to vision a Golden Civilization and then work to establish it now. His latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness, is available for pre-order on Amazon now and can be purchased March 4, 2019. To celebrate the book’s launch, we offer attendees of the live BrightTALK on March 4 a special one-day price of $1.29 for the Kindle version.

  • The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    VentureBeat Mar 6 2019 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It’s do or die time: According to Gartner, the global business value from AI leapt by 70 percent last year, to $1.2 trillion, and it will triple to $3.9 trillion in 2022. So enterprises interested in getting on the AI train should jump now -- before you lose some major competitive advantages.

    Of course, the biggest challenge for enterprise companies is figuring out the build versus buy question. There’s the build-in-house model of AI implementation, with open-source toolkits and expensive, but essential new hires. The number of startups offering full-service consultation, with set-up and service is proliferating, but who do you choose, and what do you pay for? And somewhere in between those options there’s the artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) approach — and again, the field of vendors is crowded with options.

    There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer — but there are experts with real insight into how to identify your business needs, and where to get started implementing AI in the most cost-effective, profitable way possible for your enterprise. To get up front and personal with pros in the trenches now, register now for this VB Live event!

    You'll learn:
    *How to identify your AI needs
    *How to identify your decision criteria
    *The pros and cons of build and buy, and the best situations for each
    *How to get a handle on the true costs of both build and buy

    ISM Webinar: Lack of Pipeline - The number 1 reason you are not hitting Quota
    ISM Fellow, Steve Burton Mar 12 2019 11:00 am UTC 30 mins
    Let’s face it… selling isn't easy. Sometimes it seems easier to lure a ravenous lion with a lettuce leaf than hit your monthly sales target. Even the best, most seasoned salespeople will feel pressurized from time to time and result in them not hitting the target. It’s this pressure that spawns excuses – excuses that detract attention away from a salesperson’s performance (or lack of it).

    I hate hearing excuses; it feels like people are trying to blame others rather than accepting their own failings. But what are the top excuses you’ll hear from a salesperson?

    Why does psychological safety matter in banking and what can we do about it?
    Abigail Freeman, Founder, Brink, and Nicole Brigandi, Leadership Coach and Organisational Psychologist Mar 12 2019 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    There’s a leading predictor of high-performing, healthy teams and organisations, and it’s probably not what you think. It’s helping some banks consistently outperform the market, whilst others not addressing it crash and burn.

    Called ‘psychological safety’, it’s the ability to challenge, speak up and most importantly, listen up.

    In this interactive webcast, we explore the concept of psychological safety. What is it and how do you know when it’s present in your organisation? We’ll discuss what it means for banking and how are firms using it well vs. what happens when teams don’t give it attention, and we’ll equip you with tools to start cultivating it, today, in your teams and organisations.

    Participate in a global visioning exercise. George Kinder, internationally-recognized thought leader and father of the financial Life Planning movement, invites you to Life Plan civilization!
    Imagine a thousand generations in the future where there is a Golden Civilization. What does it look like? Feel Like? How do people communicate, exchange goods, and govern themselves?

    This BrightTALK is one of hundreds of conversations happening globally since the launch of Kinder’s latest book, A Golden Civilization and the Map of Mindfulness (available for pre-order on Amazon now and for purchase March 4, 2019). The grassroots movement of community conversations asks attendees to vision a Golden Civilization and then work to establish it now.
    Be part of the movement that is changing the world one conversation at a time. With George Kinder as the conversation facilitator, you’ll practice inner listening, hear the perspectives of others worldwide, share your own perspective, and together you’ll create a vision statement that captures the kind of future you want for yourselves and your grandchildren. With a clear and energizing vision of a Golden Civilization, Kinder will challenge you and each member of the group to think of how you can live into this vision now. Offering no judgement to the steps participants choose, Kinder values each contribution and demonstrates the art of empathic listening. At the end of the conversation, participants are invited to host their own conversations with friends, family, or any group they represent. More resources are available at www.agoldencivilization.com.
