Hadoop is transforming today's Healthcare industry. In this webinar, Charles Boicey covers the various new use cases made possible as the Hadoop ecosystem matures.
In 2010 the Clinical Informatics Team at the University of California in Irvine, led by Charles Boicey, looked outside of the conventional Healthcare data ecosystem for new data management solutions - their existing Electronic Health Record and Enterprise Data Warehouse environments no longer met the organization’s needs. They researched "Big Data" technologies in organizations such as Yahoo, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook and concluded that Hadoop could supplement their current ecosystem to solve existing use cases and act as a platform to develop new applications for future solutions and insights.
Attack Intelligence to Power Tomorrow’s Cyber Response.
Preparing to combat every threat and vulnerability is a war that no cybersecurity professional can win today. Speed, accuracy and visibility of threats and active attacks is critical to defending against APTs and other sophisticated attacks responsible for today’s headline-grabbing data breaches. The next generation of advanced threat prevention solutions will require a significant shift in how we incorporate threat and attack visibility into everyday security operations, enabling incident responders to identify and stop campaigns as they happen.
Join us as IDC’s Research Vice President for Security Products Services Charles Kolodgy shares his view of the threat landscape, including how threats are evolving, how cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and what new solutions are necessary to combat APTs.
Growing installs is the number one mission for any mobile app developer, and any user acquisition strategy generally consists of a mix of organic installs and paid campaigns. But many see these as separate and distinct. Not true. To get the most out of each — especially for smaller developers — it’s critical to understand how paid installs impact organic installs, and vice versa.
In this webinar, Ian Sefferman of TUNE will share the eye-opening results of a study investigating the correlation between paid campaigns and organic installs (yes, it’s positive), and how this varies depending on the app category and operating system. Christian Calderon of DOTS will dive into the strategies and tactics that increase both paid and organic installs, and how they work together.
What you’ll learn:
For every paid install, how many organic installs an app can expect to see
How the multiplier effect impacts app categories differently
How organic installs and engaged users affect your paid strategy and spend
Best-practice examples on what really works to maximize both organic installs and paid campaigns for highest yield

In data visualization, we map data values and relationships onto visual dimensions to create a graphical representation for exploration and analysis. How can we best use the power of the human visual system to make these values and relationships clear? Using examples from information design, cartography and data graphics, we will demonstrate how insights from research in color perception, perceptual organization and visual attention have helped define best practices for visual analysis.
You will learn how to utilize a few perceptual and cognitive building blocks that can inform a wide variety of visualization choices, and to demonstrate how these influenced the design of the Tableau product.
Data visualizations can support a variety of opinions, but often leave you with more questions than answers. Is the data accurate? Is the analytical method correct? Is there bias in the presentation of the data? Is the insight actionable for the business and not just analysts? Most importantly, can we base critical business decisions on this information in real-time?
Join us for this webcast to see the full potential of visual data discovery as part of your analytical platform. You’ll hear best practices for addressing different analytics needs with a fast, easy, and flexible business intelligence (BI) and analytics platform. We'll also cover the way data visualization fits into the broader objective of enabling self-service analytics in your organisation.
Visual data discovery is a style of analytics that has transformed the way business users and analysts interact with data. However, it can also result in silos of inconsistent information which lead to analysis anarchy. BI solutions designed for the enterprise must deliver data visualisation and discovery that gives business users the agility and self-service they are looking for while maintaining data consistency and governance across the organisation.
Join this webinar to learn how cloud BI and analytics is changing the way organisations approach data discovery by ensuring seamless integration with mainstream BI and minimising the pitfalls that occur when hundreds of users start to work independently within their own data silos.

According to Gartner, “through 2019, more than 50% of data migration projects will exceed budget and/or result in some form of business disruption due to flawed execution."(1) Furthermore, 1 in 6 large IT projects go over budget by 200%, according to a Harvard Business Review article. It is widely recognized that application migration and consolidation projects are “risky business” – high-ticket items for the corporation, with a scary chance of failing. If you are undertaking any IT modernization or rationalization project, such as consolidating applications or migrating applications to the cloud or ‘on-prem’ application, such as SAP, this webinar is a must-see.
The webinar is going to shine the light on the critical role that data plays in the success or failure of these projects. Application data consolidation and migration is typically 30% to 40% of the application go-live effort. There is a multitude of data issues that can plague a project like this and lead to its doom, and these are not always recognized and understood early on, which is the biggest problem.
In this webinar, Philip Russom of TDWI will walk us through the potential data pitfalls a corporation should consider when undertaking an application consolidation or migration project. Philip will share best practices for managing data in order to minimize risks and ensure on-time and on-budget delivery of these projects. Rob will discuss Informatica’s unique methodology and solution to support these best practices. Rob will also share real-life examples on how Informatica is helping customers reduce risks and complete application consolidation and migration projects on budget and on schedule.

In this presentation, we will provide an introduction to Apache Ignite (incubating), which is an open source, distributed framework for a unified In-Memory Data Fabric, originally developed by GridGain Systems. Apache Ignite provides a high-performance, distributed in-memory data management software layer that has been designed to operate between both new and existing data sources and applications, boosting application performance and scale by orders of magnitude.
Analytics clusters, typified by Hadoop, commonly use just a bunch of disks (JBOD) embedded in cluster nodes to create a storage layer. However, because users now want to run multiple applications within these clusters, this layer has to take on the characteristics of persistent storage where data can be maintained for long time periods. This webinar will review, evaluate and discuss implementations of persistent storage now emerging for Big Data that go well beyond just bunches of disks.
Apache Spark offers unique in-memory capabilities and is well suited to a wide variety of data processing workloads including machine learning and micro-batch processing. With HDP 2.2, Apache Spark is a fully supported component of the Hortonworks Data Platform. In this session we will cover the key fundamentals of Apache Spark and operational best practices for executing Spark jobs along with the rest of Big Data workloads. We will also provide a working example to showcase micro-batch and machine learning processing using Apache Spark.
Apache Spark (http://spark.apache.org/) is emerging as the next generation of technology for data processing. Compared to Hadoop MapReduce, Spark is easier to use and maintain, increasing its popularity, which is due to the fact that it excels in in-memory computations (many times faster than MapReduce). This also allows Spark to be the de-facto platform for machine learning algorithms at scale.
In this presentation, the Spark platform will be introduced to the audience by:
• Walking through interesting features of Spark
• Comparing and contrasting it with Hadoop
• Highlighting Spark use cases and its ecosystem
