  • Big Data, HPC and Storage Interview with Frederic Van Haren, HighFens
    Big Data, HPC and Storage Interview with Frederic Van Haren, HighFens Mike Matchett, Taneja Group; Frederic Van Haren, HighFens Recorded: Jul 21 2017 12 mins
    In this highly topical interview, I get to question Frederic Van Haren about a number of big data and HPC storage topics. For years, before the world even called it big data, Frederic was responsible for some of the biggest and fastest growing big data/HPC analytical datasets in the world, actively used by large teams of highly advanced speech-to-text researchers with cutting edge analytics, and in global production operations for a variety of well-known applications.
    I ask Frederic for some of his hard-earned insights and best practice advice for those looking to implement big data storage in their enterprises for analytics, data lakes, and whatever the future may bring. We also get in some questions about what IT folks should do for their careers, and what to focus on first in these kinds of projects.

  • How to Build Modern Data Architectures Both On Premises and in the Cloud
    How to Build Modern Data Architectures Both On Premises and in the Cloud Jacque Istok, Head of Data Technical Field for Pivotal Recorded: Jul 20 2017 43 mins
    Enterprises are beginning to consider the deployment of data science and data warehouse platforms on hybrid (public cloud, private cloud, and on premises) infrastructure. This delivers the flexibility and freedom of choice to deploy your analytics anywhere you need it and to create an adaptable and agile analytics platform.

    But the market is conspiring against customer desire for innovation...

    Leading public cloud vendors are interested in pushing their new, but proprietary, analytic stacks, locking customers into subpar Analytics as a Service (AaaS) for years to come.

    In tandem, Legacy Data Warehouse vendors are trying to extend the lifecycle of their costly and aging appliances with new features of marginal value, simply imitating the same limiting models of public cloud vendors.

    New vendors are coming up with interesting ideas, but these ideas are often lacking critical features that don’t provide support for hybrid solutions, limiting the immediate value to users.

    It is 2017—you can, in fact, have your analytics cake and eat it too! Solve your short term costs and capabilities challenges, and establish a long term hybrid data strategy by running the same open source analytics platform on your infrastructure as it exists today.

    In this webinar you will learn how Pivotal can help you build a modern analytical architecture able to run on your public, private cloud, or on-premises platform of your choice, while fully leveraging proven open source technologies and supporting the needs of diverse analytical users.

    Let’s have a productive discussion about how to deploy a solid cloud analytics strategy.

  • IT Under Attack: Data Quality Technology Helps Companies Assess Security Vulnera
    IT Under Attack: Data Quality Technology Helps Companies Assess Security Vulnera Dan Ortega - VP Marketing at Blazent Recorded: Jul 13 2017 6 mins
    In the wake of the most recent (May 2017) malware attack impacting computer systems around the world, company executives are in urgent discussions with IT leaders, asking them to provide assessments of risks and vulnerabilities and recommendations to safeguard the company’s information and operations. CIOs and IT leaders strongly depend on the accuracy, completeness and trustworthiness of the data at their disposal to make informed decisions. How confident are you of the data being used to protect your organization from harm?
    There are commonly at least 5 independent sources of data that must be combined to identify what devices are potentially vulnerable and what business functions depend on them. When these data sets are gathered, there will undoubtedly be a large number of duplicates, partial records, records for devices that have been retired or replaced, conflicting data about the same device and records with old data that is inaccurate. According to Gartner, at any moment, as much as 40% of enterprise data is inaccurate, missing or incomplete. Data quality technology can help integrate the data, resolve the issues, alert data management staff to areas that need attention and help decision makers understand the accuracy and completeness of the data on which they depend.
    Blazent has been a leader in providing Data Quality solutions for more than 10 years and is an expert in integrating the types of IT operational data needed to help CIOs and IT leaders assemble an accurate and unified big picture view of their technology ecosystem. With data quality and trustworthiness enabled by Blazent’s technology, your leaders and decision makers can be confident that the information they are using to assess vulnerabilities and risks will lead to solid recommendations and decisions that protect your organization from harm.

  • Webinar: MDM – From Master Data to Data Mastery
    Webinar: MDM – From Master Data to Data Mastery Featuring Guest Speaker Michele Goetz, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research Jul 26 2017 3:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    To achieve digital transformation means businesses need to be data driven, insight rich, and intelligently powered. Companies that strategically invested in MDM consistently out perform both digital and non digitally focused organizations. Why? Because MDM brings understanding to the data across a complex hybrid ecosystem of data silos and platforms allowing digital enterprises to gather, orchestrate and syndicate data and insights anywhere at any time. The best practices, skills and technologies needed to power master data, are the foundational skills to scale the broader investment in information and analytic architecture. Michele Goetz, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, will share how digital transformation is shaping MDM and how businesses are rethinking their MDM strategies for competitive advantage.

    • How MDM is at the center of driving stronger business outcomes
    • How MDM competencies lay the foundation for data mastery and deeper insight
    • How MDM technology is evolving to meet the new digital age and how to select your MDM capabilities
  • Modern Portals: The Digital Transformation of Enterprise Systems & Business Apps
    Modern Portals: The Digital Transformation of Enterprise Systems & Business Apps Fouad ElNaggar, CEO and Co-Founder of Sapho Jul 26 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Enterprise systems are failing today’s employees because they are hard to use, they trap data in silos, they have a poor user experience, and they offer limited mobile support. Therefore, it is no surprise that a Forrester Research study showed that 76% of employees believe it takes too long to complete tasks in their systems and another 62% delay completing tasks that require multiple systems. In short, this means your business has delays.

    On the flip side, consumer applications keep getting better and better – these apps are simple, enable quick task completion, are accessible from anywhere, and offer a great user experience. Why can’t enterprise systems be as easy to use as consumer apps? It turns out, they can be. Modern portals are the next generation digital workplace tools that push data and key actions to employees from their systems so they can more effectively do their jobs.

    Join this webinar to learn how easy it is to:

    •Remove system bottlenecks, reduce helpdesk calls, decrease software spending, enable smart decision-making, and streamline workflows with consumer-like business apps.
    •Build smart, event-driven micro apps that sit on top of your existing systems and push actionable insights and tasks to employees on any device, intranet, or messenger.
    •Triple the productivity of your workforce with a modern portal that surfaces personalized and relevant tasks and information from all your systems.
