  • Operational Alignment: Rebalance IT Process with Customer Needs
    Operational Alignment: Rebalance IT Process with Customer Needs Troy DuMoulin - VP Research & Development, Pink Elephant Recorded: Aug 17 2018 59 mins
    Let’s say your IT organization has processes in place that seem effective on the surface — you resolve service outages, provision resources, and manage changes as required. Your monthly reports may satisfy IT executive requirements, but how aware are you of your business customers’ needs and service expectations in relation to these processes? In their initial efforts to define IT service delivery processes, many organizations have unintentionally pushed customers to the end of the equation.

    Aligning interdependent resources and workflows is crucial for IT operations to be successful — but not at the expense of the customer. Too frequently, IT faces excessive pressure to deliver business metrics, and not enough significance is placed on the goals and values of the customers.

    Join Troy DuMoulin, VP Research & Development at Pink Elephant discusses how team misalignment can hinder service delivery.

  • Speed to Value: How To Justify Your Big Data Investments
    Speed to Value: How To Justify Your Big Data Investments Amit Duvedi, VP of Business Value Engineering, Qubole Recorded: Aug 15 2018 55 mins
    Every investment in big data, whether people or technology, should be measured by how quickly it generates value for the business. While big data uses cases may vary, the need to prioritize investments, control costs and measure impact is universal.

    Like most CTOs, CIOs, VPs or Directors overseeing big data projects, you’re likely somewhere in between putting out fires and demonstrating how your big data projects are driving growth. If your focus, for example, is improving your users’ experience you need to be able to demonstrate a clear ROI in the form of higher customer retention or lifetime value.

    However, in addition to driving growth, you’re also responsible for managing costs. Here’s the rub-- if you’re successful in driving growth, your big data costs will only go up. That’s the consequence of successful big data use cases. How then, when you have success, do you limit and manage rising cloud costs?

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    - How to measure business value from big data use cases
    - Typical bottlenecks that delay time to value and ways to address them
    ​- Strategies for managing rising cloud and people costs
    - How best-in-class companies are generating value from big data use cases while also managing their costs

  • Implementing a Sparse Logistic Regression Algorithm in Apache Spark
    Implementing a Sparse Logistic Regression Algorithm in Apache Spark Lorand Dali, Data Scientist, Zalando Aug 21 2018 5:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    This talk tells the story of implementation and optimization of a sparse logistic regression algorithm in spark. I would like to share the lessons I learned and the steps I had to take to improve the speed of execution and convergence of my initial naive implementation. The message isn’t to convince the audience that logistic regression is great and my implementation is awesome, rather it will give details about how it works under the hood, and general tips for implementing an iterative parallel machine learning algorithm in spark.

    The talk is structured as a sequence of “lessons learned” that are shown in form of code examples building on the initial naive implementation. The performance impact of each “lesson” on execution time and speed of convergence is measured on benchmark datasets.

    You will see how to formulate logistic regression in a parallel setting, how to avoid data shuffles, when to use a custom partitioner, how to use the ‘aggregate’ and ‘treeAggregate’ functions, how momentum can accelerate the convergence of gradient descent, and much more. I will assume basic understanding of machine learning and some prior knowledge of spark. The code examples are written in scala, and the code will be made available for each step in the walkthrough.

    Lorand is a data scientist working on risk management and fraud prevention for the payment processing system of Zalando, the leading fashion platform in Europe. Previously, Lorand has developed highly scalable low-latency machine learning algorithms for real-time bidding in online advertising.

  • Compliance...Implement and Operate the Right Security Controls
    Compliance...Implement and Operate the Right Security Controls Tom Cornelius and Mark Kedgley Aug 22 2018 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Most organizations today run a ‘Build-a-Bear’ approach to Cyber Security, with products and practices they piece together.

    If you aren’t already subject to one or more specific GRC mandates, inevitably, one will soon be dropped on you. Regardless of the regulation, you will need to provide structured evidence proving you operate in compliance with a fit-for-purpose set of controls.

    Just in the last 12 months, GDPR and NIST 800-171 have been made mandatory. This, coupled with the stats telling us that security breaches are increasing, despite year on year increases in security investment, tells us that the need to understand and implement security controls is inevitable.

    What is the most strategic, long-term and resource-effective way to reconcile increased demands for compliance and security? How do you bring together the aligned but segregated needs for ITSM and Security? How do you elevate traditional change management to the state of the art of change control, providing security-grade change visibility but without compromising your organizations’ IT agility?

    Join Tom Cornelius, Senior Partner at Compliance Forge and Founder of the Secure Controls Framework, and Mark Kedgley, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of New Net Technologies in an interactive webinar where we will

    •Work out how to streamline and bring together overlapping or conflicting requirements for controls
    •Simplify the need for multiple compliance and privacy mandates
    •Examine what gives us the right mix of technology and automation to deliver the new hybrid SecureOps way for operating ITSM and security

  • Scared of data security in SaaS applications? Don’t worry, we have your back
    Scared of data security in SaaS applications? Don’t worry, we have your back Akhilesh Dhawan, Dir. Product Marketing, Networking/Security; Praveen Raghuraman, Dir. Product Management, Networking, Citrix Aug 23 2018 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Most organizations have some data stored in SaaS applications or are thinking of moving to SaaS. Some of this migration to SaaS is controlled by IT (sanctioned SaaS apps), while most of this migration is undertaken by individual business units (unsanctioned SaaS apps) in order to achieve better productivity or to get some tasks done. While IT has deployed methods like single sign-on to sanctioned applications, they cannot control access to any unsanctioned SaaS applications using the same SSO solution. And traditional single sign-on solutions don’t provide any control on what actions a user can take after they login to SaaS applications, nor do they provide security policies for IT to control user access to the Internet.

    In this session, you will learn about a single solution that helps:

    • Improve user experience with single sign-on to SaaS, web and virtual apps
    • Implement enhanced security policies for SaaS apps to control user actions after login
    • Enable Web filtering to control what users cannot access on the Internet
    • Securely browse the internet
    • Provide end to end visibility and user behavior analytics with Citrix Analytics

    Blending Art & Science: Using Data to Forecast and Manage Your Sales Pipeline Sam Shuster, Senior Analyst and Ben Loeffler-Little, Head of Sales at Periscope Data Aug 23 2018 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Sales is a scientific art; it takes someone who can translate their experience as a sales manager into an artful set of best practices. The science part requires the application of advanced data models to standard CRM data to understand their pipeline at greater depth. Blending the quantitative expertise of the data team with the experience, intuition and knowledge of the sales leadership ensures companies are able to use that pipeline analysis to correctly predict revenue. More importantly, that process helps sales managers manage and invest in their team and have data-driven conversations that will lead to exceeding revenue goals.

    Join Sam Schuster, analytics team lead at Periscope Data, and Ben Loeffler-Little, head of sales at Periscope Data, as they discuss how analytics and sales have partnered to forecast new business revenue and manage pipeline. Together, they have built a tool that models new business revenue and identifies key pipeline trends to ensure sales leadership will hit their goals.

    In this webinar, they will discuss:
    - Why visualizing sales pipeline matters
    - How to bridge the gap between technical tools and non-technical users
    - How to model Salesforce data
    - Business impact from using these visualization
