  • Impala raises the bar for SQL query performance on Apache Hadoop. With Impala, you can query Hadoop data – including SELECT, JOIN, and aggregate functions – in real time to do BI-style analysis. As a result, Impala makes a Hadoop-based enterprise data hub function like an enterprise data warehouse for native Big Data.
    In this webinar featuring Impala architect Marcel Kornacker, you will explore:

    * How Impala's architecture supports query speed over Hadoop data that not only convincingly exceeds that of Hive, but also that of a proprietary analytic DBMS over its own native columnar format.
    * The current state of, and roadmap for, Impala's analytic SQL functionality.
    * An example configuration and benchmark suite that demonstrate how Impala offers a high level of performance, functionality, and ability to handle a multi-user workload, while retaining Hadoop’s traditional strengths of flexibility and ease of scaling.
  • Dr. Ralph Kimball describes how Apache Hadoop complements and integrates effectively with the existing enterprise data warehouse. The Hadoop environment's revolutionary architectural advantages open the door to more data and more kinds of data than are possible to analyze with conventional RDBMSs, and additionally offer a whole series of new forms of integrated analysis.

    Dr. Kimball explains how Hadoop can be both:

    A destination data warehouse, and also
    An efficient staging and ETL source for an existing data warehouse
    You will also learn how enterprise conformed dimensions can be used as the basis for integrating Hadoop and conventional data warehouses.
  • The C-Suite in every organization is obsessed with the buzz around Big Data and according to industry pundits almost 9 out of 10 organizations today have included this growing trend in their IT plans for 2014.

  • Embracing big data allows you to improve business performance. During this webinar, we will discuss ways to use newer concepts, capabilities and technologies available to empower business users with business intelligence (BI) and analytics on big data -- all based upon field tested deployments and customer-proven success. Among the questions we will answer:

    - How do you change the relationship between users and big data, give them the means to embrace it, work with it very interactively, in almost near instantaneous fashion?

    - How can you enable users to apply more sophisticated BI (i.e. advanced analytics), even on vast amounts of data?

    - How do you reconcile and enable various levels of analytics maturity between users, from simple executive-ready dashboards, all the way to sophisticated programmers and data scientists?

    Join us to learn how to address volume, variety, velocity of big data, without compromising speed to results, or sophistication of analytics.
  • Cloudera's Director of Data Science Josh Wills and Senior Manager, Solutions Marketing Sandy Lii explain how advanced analytics with an enterprise data hub will allow you to use all of your data, do more with your data, and deliver insights sooner. This breaks-down the barriers caused by increasingly high data storage and/or processing costs, silo-ed data sources, complex management and security, and lack of analytics agility.
  • Retail Winners recognize that customer service is the single most important driver of success in today’s omnichannel marketplace, and they are racing to deploy all their human, store and technology assets in order to compete.

    Recognizing the need to provide the best omnichannel experience in the most cost-efficient way, retailers are investing in a central commerce hub as the answer to this challenge. Maintaining multiple, siloed systems is expensive and puts retailers at risk of delivering a disjointed experience.
    At end of day, omnichannel customer service is what customers expect, and is the cost of doing business today. Where once it was a differentiator, excellent omnichannel customer service must be provided and promoted, or retailers will not be getting the wallet share they’re targeting. In this webinar, we’ll explore effective strategies and technologies to improve customer service and re-engage disaffected consumers.

  • McAfee and Norse present: Combating Advanced Cyber Threats with McAfee Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) and Norse Dark Threat Intelligence

    Threat intelligence is a critical tool in the never-ending struggle to protect the world’s networks, but many threat intelligence solutions lack visibility into the parts of the Internet where bad actors operate—the darknets. As the effectiveness of these solutions declines, organizations are exposed to increased risk of security breaches, data ex-filtration, and loss of reputation and revenue from today’s advanced cyber threats.
    McAfee and Norse have developed an integrated threat intelligence approach leveraging the strengths of McAfee GTI along with Norse’s unique ability to provide visibility into the darknet and dark web. This integration of McAfee Network Threat Response Cloud Analysis and Deconstruction Services with Norse IPViking provides the strongest web-based reputation protection available against botnets, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), and advanced persistent threats. When combined in an automated fashion with machine-to-machine interface, users now have a single-pane-of-glass with rich context to track new organizational threats not detected through traditional means.
    Join McAfee and Norse to learn about:
    •The value of Dark Threat Intelligence and its role in preventing compromise and data breaches
    •Threat intelligence-based strategies for advanced threat prevention and detection
    •Using threat intelligence to streamline and improve the incident response process
  • In this webinar, Anton will explain the main advantages of NoSQL and common use cases in which the migration to NoSQL makes sense.

  • Business intelligence tools were born to query and report. But now analysts and business users don't just want dashboards, they want to dive deep into ad hoc analyses, to explore dozens of hypotheses in minutes. The BI industry is responding by tacking on better visualization and calling it analysis.

    But visualization and analysis are very different. If they weren't, why do most analysts prefer to query data with BI tools, then do their actual analysis in Excel (or statistical tools)? Or why do Tableau's help documents literally suggest you pull out a calculator if you'd like to run a correlation?

    For many companies, this misunderstood distinction is the final barrier to reaching the promised land of data for all. We'll explore the distinction, as well as the growing divide between exploratory analysis tools and predictive analysis tools. We'll also talk about the reasons that cloud-based analysis tools will leave the rest further and further behind.
  • Analytics 3.0 breaks through constraints that companies have faced around enabling any analytics, on any data, at any time.

    Join our live webcast on April 3, 2014 at 12 PM EST and learn how analytics has evolved from business intelligence to the new era of data-enriched offerings, and how you can apply Analytics 3.0 to produce measurable business benefits and optimize internal decision processes for your organization.
  • Cloud based services are gaining traction in the healthcare community. The combination of reliability, cost effectiveness and security has prompted many healthcare organizations to move data to the cloud for storage and analysis. New cloud opportunities are arising in promoting collaboration among care givers and in analyzing large data sets (eg genomics). This talk will review the possibilities and challenges of moving healthcare data and analysis to the cloud.
  • Large organizations manage many lines of business that can lead to difficulty in efficiently allocating resources. Governments often maintain extensive amounts of data but seldom leverage the value in the data to improve operational efficiency. Discover how the Office of the Utah State Auditor now leverages data resources across thousands of local governments, dozens of state agencies and universities to uncover fraud, waste, and the inefficient allocation of scarce resources.
  • Cognitive computing is a way of processing data that is neither linear nor deterministic. It uses the ideas behind neuroscience and psychology to augment human reasoning with better pattern matching while determining the optimal information a person needs to make decisions. Cognitive computing is different than other forms of software. Instead of shepherding data through pre-determined pathways, it finds the previously unknown paths and patterns through the data. This is ultimately a more scalable model than relying on experts to synthesize data since there are too few experts of any sort available at any one time. Cognitive computing doesn’t try to fit data into an existing model; it looks at the data and figures out what the model is first.

    This webinar provides an overview this new field of computing. It describes what it is, why it has value, and how it applies to the current business climate.
