•The importance of gaining insight across your enterprise information
•How this insight directly impacts your ability to achieve compliance, mitigate risk, and avoid costly penalties
•Perspectives on the right strategies, processes, and tools that can help you proactively take action with data to reduce risk

SQL has long been the most widely used language for big data analysis. The SQL-on-Hadoop ecosystem is loaded with both commercial and open source alternatives, each offering tools optimized for various use cases. Fledgling analytical engines are in incubation, but are they ready to become full-fledged members of your enterprise infrastructure? Are they ready to fly?
In the real world, enterprises must understand their needs and select a SQL-on-Hadoop solution that addresses them. Points to consider: What are your analytics use cases-will a single user be working on data discovery or will multiple users perform daily analytics? Will you need to modify SQL to adjust to different deployment scenarios, or does a single solution exist for on-premises, Cloud, and Hadoop? Can a single solution support a variety of workloads from quick-hit dashboards to complex, resource-intensive, join-filled queries?
In this webcast, you will learn:
* Some of the challenges associated with the democratization of analytics while using SQL on Hadoop
* Criteria other than performance that should be considered for enterprise-grade analytics
* How Ambari and Kerberos fit in for management and security of your data.
* How HPE Vertica for SQL on Hadoop can be used as part of a modern IT infrastructure to deliver high-performance SQL on Hadoop.

In this session we will discuss how state and local government organizations can create modern cloud applications in Microsoft Azure. Learn how you can help modernize your agency and the services you deliver to citizens using:
•Devices that are sensors, sensor gateways or IoT devices that are publishing events to Event Hub either directly or using Microsoft IoT Hub SDK
•Gateways - a logical component that groups processing, management of event processors
•Event processor routes and device actors - Device Actors are chained with various other actor types that are responsible for aggregating, storing, analysis and reporting on device events
•Initiate a project using Visual Studio Online
•How an IoT pattern can be used in Azure IoT Hub using a presentation and references to real tenants.
Tableau’s stunning success has empowered individuals across the enterprise to create powerful data visualization and analysis on-demand.
However, the challenge lies in the time and effort it takes to prep data for visualization. According to James Haight of Blue Hill Research, on average data analysts spend between 50 to 60% of their time just preparing the data. In today’s data-driven environment, organizations can’t afford insight bottlenecks when it comes to getting the answers they need.
Richard Buckle will look at what is coming once you get beyond the strategy / vision for NonStop as Software and HPE’s stated goal of separating NonStop from infrastructure.
HPE is now building a new “Linux on Steroids” with access to the same “metal awareness” as VMs and move us toward a next generation VM that will be a lighter weight ContainerOS. As we have heard from HPE, NonStop is already under test on a Linux-based VM and will be well-prepared to exploit this latest development coming from HPE Labs.
Richard will provide additional commentary on HPE’s timelines, who ultimately benefits from these developments, as well as why these changes shouldn’t alarm the NonStop community.

When we think of data visualisation and visual analytics we mostly think about 2D graphs and displays. But gaming and other graphics technology is making the creation of immersive 3D data visualisations a reality - either on ordinary PC screens or using VR headsets such as Oculus Rift and Google Cardboard.
This webinar will look at what immersive 3D data visualisation is, now if differs from "non-immersive" 3D, the potential benefits it can offer over 2D, and the potential issues of 3D visualisation.
In the past two decades, visualization has become a language adopted not just by scientists and statisticians, but by journalists, designers, and the public in general. This process has been enabled by an increasing variety of software tools that are sophisticated, easy to use and, in many cases, free. However, knowledge of elementary principles of information presentation has not progressed at the same pace.
This webinar will provide an overview of these principles. You will learn:
-How to create charts and maps that don't mislead
-How to choose appropriate graphic forms to represent your information
-How to arrange your graphics to build compelling narratives
Data visualization is one thing, but communicating your message effectively is another. Using narratives, and stories, is a key way to add structure, messages and conclusions to the insights you discover. In this seminar, Andy Cotgreave will outline why stories are so important in data communication. He will look at 7 different types of data story, and conclude by looking at some of the trends in storytelling. In order to enhance his own story, expect lots of examples from industry and data journalism!
Data visualization is a powerful technology but it's a means to an end and not a goal by itself. Its main purpose is to enable more people to gain faster insights from data. One way to accelerate this time to insight is to design better, more efficient visualizations. Design guidelines remain an always popular topic for data visualization talks because most data analysis applications require users to spend a significant amount of time turning knobs to get to the output they need.
Alternatively, we suggest a design approach that focuses on meeting users' analysis needs, while minimizing their time to insight. In this session, join IBM's data visualization specialist Frank van Ham as he illustrates the effectiveness of guided visual analytics on different types of data.

Practically every business collects terabytes of data from an array of sources, looking to analyze that data into meaningful insight that drives decisions. How come some organizations appear so successful while others simply vacuum up data, and then seemingly do little with the information?
No matter their individual results, overall investment shows no sign of slowing: Brands plan to increase their spending on cloud-based data platforms alone by 73 percent over the next three years, according to VB Insight's "The State of Marketing Analytics" report. They spend more than one-third of their marketing budgets on analytics tools, but marketing executives have limited confidence in analytics tools' ability to generate insight – despite the availability of more than 800 software options.
A VentureBeat webinar helps marketers wade through the tech-speak and discover how to:
• Determine your organization's primary objectives for analytics
• Winnow down your options to a handful of appropriate platforms
• Come up with ways to measure success
• Generate meaningful business insight from data
• Plan for the future by the ability to add new data sources and tools
