Identity Access Management is a complex matrix of requirements meant to assure that only the right people have access to your data. This requires the creation of a rules, roles, and a method for preserving information about access rights. In other words, we create 'big data' that then must be mined to find the most risky individuals and risky behaviors. By starting with a risk-based approach, finding those behaviors and individuals is easier. Explore with us as we examine how risk values can be assigned as you build the database so that analyzing and reporting become easier.
Health plans push for their members to visit their primary care provider for a checkup. It improves health outcomes and reduces the medical spend from costs related to illness and disease. Like their members, health plans also need checkups that will identify the challenges to which they are increasingly exposed, such as issues around information security, revenue maximization, and staffing needs. In this webinar, we will discuss how to specifically deal with key issues related to each of these areas.
Modern marketing has become customer-centric. Rather than one-way, generic message broadcasting, marketing today is about delivering a relevant, personalized experience… but how do you deliver relevance if you don’t know who you’re talking to?
Knowing who each customer is and what she cares about is a major challenge with two parts:
* Data collection - picking up the digital breadcrumbs from each customer interaction
* Data unification - tying together customer details from multiple interactions and databases
This webinar will explain:
* Why customer identity is more critical than ever
* The challenges of collecting and unifying customer data
* Key tools for capturing customer data
* Best options for enriching existing customer profiles
* Methods and technologies to unify customer data
And includes data from:
* A survey of 506 marketers about customer identity and personalization
* 27 vendor and brand interviews

Marketers today enjoy potential opportunities from data like never before. While the insights gained from this information can lead to great things, in the age of Big Data, there is more information available than can be easily managed.
Marketers must cope with obtaining meaningful data from a growing range of sources, maintaining and updating the data as it decays, and being able to use the data across systems and applications to draw actionable insights.
Looking at these big challenges, it’s easy to see why a Gartner survey found that 82% of CMOs feel underprepared to deal with the data explosion. CRM tools that help manage customer relationships help direct a marketer’s focus and create efficiencies, but without quality data, a CRM’s potential benefits cannot be fully realized. In turn, the customer relationship suffers.
Marketers need a way to make technology work for them to drive insights, while being able to acquire and retain the referential external data from trusted sources to fully understand their prospects and customers. With this ideal world in place, marketers can drive decisions, increase ROI, and maintain great customer relationships to keep their organizations competitive. Register for this webinar for a look at the three key challenges marketers face with data today, and the strategy for mitigating the issue using a new way of looking at data.

BECU discusses internal process improvements experienced with the INETCO Analytics self-serve analytics software. Learn how on-demand access to rich customer transaction data improves ATM placement, cash utilization and consumer banking engagement.
For any bank, payment processor or other financial institution concerned about the end customer experience, transaction data is your goldmine. Each transaction that travels across an ATM, POS, Mobile Banking, Internet Banking, Branch, Core Banking or Messaging Middleware environment can provide powerful answers to questions such as:
- What are customers experiencing?
- How are my networks, applications and third party service providers responding?
- What is the business value of each consumer transaction from a revenue or service perspective?
In today’s complex networks, electronic transaction volumes continue to increase, leading to some Big Data challenges. One transaction is often made up of sub transactions – many moving parts between a start point such as the ATM, and the end point, such as a host authorization. These moving parts could include things such as transaction switches, firewalls, service applications or host security models. When INETCO talks about transactions, we talk about all the Big Data collected on an end-to-end transaction path, correlated into one, complete transaction.

VHA (Voluntary Hospitals of America: https://www.vha.com/) is the largest member-owned health care company in the US delivering industry-leading supply chain management services and clinical improvement services to its members. At VHA, product, supplier, and member information, among other data, is siloed across multiple sources. VHA sees value in consolidating the disparate data into a Data Lake, supported by the Hortonworks Data Platform, to enable the business users to discover the related data and provide services to their members. Because of their previous success with data virtualization, powered by Denodo, VHA decided to use data virtualization to enable their business users to discover data using the familiar SQL, and thus abstract their access directly to Hadoop.
During this webinar, you will learn:
· The role, use, and benefits of Hadoop in the Modern Data Architecture.
· How Hadoop and data virtualization simplified data management and enabled faster data discovery.
· What data virtualization is and how it can simplify big data projects.
· Lessons learned from and best practices for deploying data lake and data virtualization

Analytics clearly remains one of the fastest growing markets in enterprise software and Ovum forecasts continuing growth in 2016 and beyond. In Ovum's opinion, this growth is being driven by two factors. First, it is from expanding the reach of BI and analytics to encompass the growing volume and variety of data, driving significant adoption of Big Data technologies and the interest of investors in vendors offering these solutions. Second is the changing dynamic of interaction between users and technology. The consumerization of analytic technologies – best evidenced by advances in self-service capabilities – is likely to bring in the next (multi?) million users to BI.
Consumerization is not, however, without challenges; issues arising from unleashing non-expert users on data and the resulting impact on data governance and compliance continue to be hot-button topics for enterprises. Challenges abound for vendors on both sides of the governance spectrum, and the market is yet to discover a magic bullet for delivering the right level of governance that neither impedes business users nor pushes them towards analytic silos and data anarchy.
In this webinar, we will talk about the trends that we see impacting the analytics market in 2016.
Whatever society we live in, and however open-minded we like to think we are, when it comes to our sex lives we all like to keep a few secrets. But this makes the jobs of sexologists – professionals who study sexual behaviour – pretty difficult.
David Spiegelhalter, Professor of Risk at Cambridge University, has tried to unravel the web of exaggerations, misdirections and downright lies that surround sex in modern society. Drawing on the Natsal survey, the widest survey of sexual behaviour since the Kinsey Report, and a huge range of other sources he answers crucial questions such as what are we all doing? How often? And how has it changed? And crucially, which numbers can we believe?
Join this webcast to see how to make the most from your BI and analytics in a world transformed by the mega-trends of mobile, social, cloud, advanced analytics, and big data. Michael Corcoran, Information Builders’ Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer will discuss the hottest trends in BI and also cover his key predictions for 2016.
