  • Join us on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at 11:00 AM PST/2:00 PM EST for this follow-up webinar to the Introduction to Apache Ignite(TM) (incubating) webinar, in which GridGain co-founder and EVP of Engineering and Ignite PMC Chair, Dmitriy Setrakyan will take a deep dive into several coding examples.
  • Ingesting raw data into Hadoop is easy, but extracting business value leveraging exploration tools is not. Hadoop is a file system without a data model, data quality, or data governance, making it difficult to find, understand and govern data.

    In this webinar, Tony Baer, Principal Analyst of Ovum Research, will address the gaps and offer best practices in the end-to-end process of discovering, wrangling, and governing data in a data lake. Tony Baer will be followed by Oliver Claude who will explain how Waterline Data Inventory automates the discovery of technical, business, and compliance metadata, and provides a solution to find, understand, and govern data.

    Attend this webinar if you are:
    --A big data architect who wants to inventory all data assets at the field level automatically while providing secure self-service to business users
    --A data engineer or data scientist who wants to accelerate data prep by finding and understanding the best suited and most trusted data
    --A Chief Data Officer or data steward who wants to be able to audit data lineage, protect sensitive data, and identify compliance issues
  • Here’s the good news. While the number of data sources organizations face is rapidly increasing, the cost to store data has never been cheaper. This trend – as well as big data technologies like Hadoop – has led to more valuable insights for organizations.

    But it’s also led to IT departments overburdened with requests from the business users they support. So where do we go from here?

    View this webinar that discusses data federation, a type of data virtualization that:

    • Provides a centralized governance and security layer.
    • Speeds the creation of virtual data views.
    • Makes it easier for business users to access the data they need.

    We’ll also demonstrate technologies like big data virtualization, federated data-as-a-service and data masking.

  • You have tons of data, but how useful is it? Explosive data volumes and expanding data footprints are a reality for every data services team today. This is why so many enterprises are turning to big data platforms like Hadoop. But could your data consumers get even more value from your big data investments? Big data can be useful but great data that is clean and trusted is better.

    Refining big data into great data offers many benefits:
    - Faster deployment and repeatable delivery of big data projects
    - More comprehensive data for better contextual understanding of information by consumers
    - More trusted information for higher quality business insights

    Join this webinar, with host David Lyle of Informatica and guest speaker Mark Madsen, Research Analyst and CEO from Third Nature, to learn about the differences between what we're used to doing to manage data and how the new big data architecture changes what we do. Mark will review what's different with the data we're adding, how and when to prepare it (or ignore it), how new data changes our data architecture, and how to govern data so that you can expedite and amplify the return on your investments in Hadoop.

    David will discuss how Informatica’s customers have successfully extracted more value from Hadoop for all sorts of applications like targeted marketing and fraud reduction by quickly ingesting, parsing, profiling, transforming, and cleansing big data into great data.
  • HDFS Transparent Data Encryption has been added to HDFS 2.6, and it finally provides with a solution to data encryption on a higher level than the OS one whilst remaining native and transparent to Hadoop.

This way, having encryption at HDFS level gives an optimal context for policy definition that is relevant to the industry, while remaining transparent to the applications running on Hadoop.

    Join this webinar to learn:

    -where HDFS Transparent Encryption sits within the Hadoop security framework
    - an introduction to the technical details including how to create Encryption Keys and Encryption Zones
    - Interaction with the Apache Key Management System (KMS) and the encryption/decryption data flow
    - Future work in the space of Hadoop security in general, and encryption in particular

  • When Apache Hadoop hit the market eight years ago, it rattled the cages of traditional BI and data warehousing professionals. Many speculated whether Hadoop would replace existing infrastructures, complement them, or become just the latest technology fad.

    We now know Hadoop is not a fad and driving topic of discussion today is around how best to utilize Hadoop - even if you don't have big data.

    If you're a technically savvy business professional who is still trying to understand how big data - and Hadoop in specific - impacts the enterprise data game, this webinar is for you. We'll highlight six common ways Hadoop is being used to support and extend the enterprise data warehouse ecosystem, with or without "big" data.
  • Today’s enterprises are challenged with capturing large amounts of data from a number of sources in a variety of formats, and then storing it in a cost-effective, timely manner. With your current data warehouse, this may seem overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be. With a Hadoop-based modern data warehouse, you can overcome these challenges and get meaningful insights from real-time data.

    Want to learn how?

    Join experts from Attunity, Hortonworks, and RCG Global Services for a live webinar - where we will be discussing enterprise data warehouse optimization. You will learn how to:

    •Rebalance your data warehouse by identifying unused data and resource-intensive workloads that can be moved to Hadoop.
    •Seamlessly integrate your current enterprise data warehouse with a Modern Data Architecture.
    •Better utilize data assets to reduce costs while realizing more value from your data.
    •Develop a roadmap for implementing the Hadoop-based Modern Data Architecture and Data Lake.
  • Sometimes one cloud isn’t enough. In a recent study by IDC, more than 65% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud technologies before 2016. In this webinar we will walk you through a case study on a large enterprise customer who optimized their cloud strategy for performance, capabilities, and costs by using a multi-cloud approach. The results were outstanding - $1.5 million in annual savings from examining only 15 apps out of 500 app portfolio. Join Ilyas Iyoob, Director of Advanced Analytics and Lani Dame, Sr. Product Marketing Manager as they walk through this customer success.

  • Data breaches of all sorts, affecting credit card providers, retailers and health care providers, suggest that such breaches will continue and grow as a major risk to all organizations and their IT, security, and compliance departments. At the same time, Big Data solutions are gradually becoming more prevalent, connecting many new sources of data and thus potentially increasing both the vulnerability and the magnitude of a data breach. It is no wonder that Stratecast survey data suggest that one of IT managers’ primary concerns with Big Data is security, yet the advantages of Big Data in enabling revenue creation make it very attractive to the business. This panel discussion will explore the security issues around Big Data.

    In particular, the panel will discuss:
    •Whether Big Data necessarily increases the risk of a security breach
    •How to assess the risks associated with different types of Big Data solutions
    •How to avoid data breaches in a Big Data environment
