  • Embedded Analytics to Bridge the Last Mile to Business Value Embedded Analytics to Bridge the Last Mile to Business Value Hyoun Park, Blue Hill Research and Haarthi Sadasivam, Looker Oct 4 2016 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    For analytics to make a meaningful organizational impact, organizations have to effectively embed analytics into key business tasks and decisions such as sales operations, ecommerce, workforce management, product and service workflows, revenue recognition, and financial performance. Blue Hill's research, including interviews, case studies, surveys, and vendor briefings, consistently show that effective analytic usage requires embedding analytics into a variety of workflows in a repeatable, scalable, and consistent fashion that leads to real-time visibility. Although this may seem to be a straightforward task, Blue Hill finds that a majority of companies fail to meet this standard of flexible and value-driven embedded analytics for a variety of reasons, including the following:

    Internal analytics cannot be easily scaled to serve organization-wide data or users
    Analytics cannot be easily configured or customized to meet specific user needs
    Companies lack a repeatable process for embedding analytics for similar data processes
    End users can't get the right data sources connected to the right analytic tasks
    Key analytic views are not directly connected to the current version of the truth

    In this webinar, Blue Hill Research will provide guidance on the key reasons that traditional BI deployments, even those created based on historical "best practices" for analytics, fail to achieve these goals and the benefits associated with supporting embedded analytics as an ongoing Sixth Sense to improve business performance rather than a never-ending series of one-off requests.

  • Personalize Financial Services with Advanced Analytics Personalize Financial Services with Advanced Analytics Steve Borg and Kevin Orbaker, Microsoft Oct 4 2016 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Do you know the 'next best action' to take for your customer?

    Customers today are inundated with choices. And yet 40% of customers believe financial services is an undifferentiated market. To gain a competitive edge, financial services organizations have the opportunity to differentiate their offerings through process and personalization scenarios.

    Integrating more and better data elegantly and efficiently helps financial services make better recommendations to their clients and customers. And yet, it's not possible to provide these personalized services without the help of sophisticated computer systems. The right technology can help financial services collect structured and unstructured customer data from across many systems, then apply mathematical algorithms to find meaningful patterns. These patterns can suggest a 'next best action' an organization can take to provide better customer service and sales.

  • Solving Credit Card Fraud Challenges with Hadoop Solving Credit Card Fraud Challenges with Hadoop Vamsi Chemitiganti, Hortonworks & Choudhury Arindam, Capgemini Oct 11 2016 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The Global Credit Card industry is rapidly changing and the participants are increasingly facing new challenges with exploding volumes, regulatory pressures and new entrants competing for the market share. The industry has responded to these challenges by looking at avenues to cut costs, increase efficiencies and provide better, safer products and services to attract new and retain existing customers. To help our customers address this challenge, Hortonworks and Capgemini are collaborating to create a suite of Credit Card Analytics solutions designed to enhance decision making by leveraging all of the data available including customer data, transactions, third party data, open data, government data, location data, social data, etc. The first solution in this suite of solutions is focused on Credit Card fraud.

    Fraudulent behaviours evolve and so must the solutions that are used to detect them. Traditional rules based anti-fraud systems are no longer equipped to handle large volumes of data that is required to adapt to and detect the evolving fraud patterns. Identifying fraudulent behaviors is increasingly becoming more complicated and validating all transactions based on traditional technologies represent scaling challenges.

    Join Hortonworks and Capgemini as they discuss:
    – How the joint anti-fraud solution can support your business throughout the entire credit card transaction life cycle
    – How we can help increase fraud detection accuracy using Predictive analytics and run it real time
    – Why leading organizations are choosing Hortonworks Data Platform as the platform of choice for fraud detection
  • Database as a Service: What should you consider before migrating to the cloud? Database as a Service: What should you consider before migrating to the cloud? Matt Aslett - 451 Research Director, Data Platforms and Analytics Oct 11 2016 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Database-as-a-service offers multiple potential benefits, including lower database licensing and infrastructure costs, faster time to application development, and reduced administration overheads. These benefits are most likely to be experienced by database administrators and architects, although senior decision-makers and business users also stand to gain from having on-demand access to database services, rather than waiting for databases to be configured and deployed on dedicated physical or virtual server infrastructure.

    While 451 Research anticipates growing adoption of database-as-a-service (DBaaS), adoption is currently nascent compared with other cloud services, as enterprises look to make the most of their investments in on-premises database deployments, and also to identify the most appropriate workloads for transition or migration to DBaaS. This webinar explores the factors shaping those adoption trends, including the potential benefits and challenges to DBaaS adoption, the economics of the cloud as they relate to database workloads, and adoption lifecycles.

    Based on research involving enterprises currently deploying database workloads in the cloud, the webinar will:

    • Highlight the trends driving enterprises to move database workloads to the cloud
    • Identify the challenges causing enterprises to be hesitant about migrating database workloads to the cloud
    • Identify the use-cases that are prime candidates for migrating database workloads to the cloud
    • Highlight the critical success factors for database migration to the cloud
