Many studies have been done on the benefits of Predictive Analytics on customer engagement in order to change customer behaviour. However, the side less romanticized is the benefit to IT operations as it is sometimes difficult to turn the focus from direct revenue impacting gain to the more indirect revenue gains that can come from optimization and pro-active issue resolution.
I will be speaking, from an application operations engineers perspective, on the benefits to the business of using Predictive Analytics to optimize applications.
The German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) uses self-service big data analytics to radically improve the genomic research process. Their new insights have allowed them to identify better treatment plans for cancer patients.
During this one-hour on-demand webinar, Dr. Fritz Schinkel, head of Fujitsu’s Big Data Competence Center and a Fujitsu Distinguished Engineer, discusses how the combined Datameer and Fujitsu platform helps the DKFZ:
--Perform deeper analysis on raw datasets representing millions of genomic positions without requiring data reduction techniques that can compromise results
--Dramatically reduce the time it takes to analyze raw genomic datasets for each patient to speed creating patient treatments
I will summarize the stages of analytics maturity that lead an organization from traditional reporting (descriptive analytics: hindsight), through predictive analytics (foresight), and into prescriptive analytics (insight). The benefits of big data (especially high-variety data) will be demonstrated with simple examples that can be applied to significant use cases.
The goal of data science in this case is to discover predictive power and prescriptive power from your data collections, in order to achieve optimal decisions and outcomes.
Blazent's CEO, Charlie Piper and Dan Ortega introduce the company strategy, vision and it's value to customer's and MSP partners. Together, Charlie and Dan describe how Blazent's platform finds the the most accurate data to improve decision manking in IT and beyond.

Join this webinar to see how the CloudPhysics Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer identifies opportunities to lower your costs of running applications on the public cloud.
The Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer automatically identifies on-premises virtual machines (VMs) that are over-provisioned with more resources (such as CPU and memory) than they use. This lets you optimize instance matching to the ideal cloud instances. Rightsizing reveals the verifiable cost of running workloads in the cloud. Now you can answer the question, “will we save money by migrating applications to the cloud?”
This webinar shows how Public Cloud Planning Rightsizer collects resource utilization data from each VM on a fine-grained basis, and then analyzes those data across time to discover the VM’s actual resource needs. Imagine an on-premises VM configured with 8 vCPUs: if the Rightsizer shows that it has never used more than 2 vCPUs, you can Rightsize that VM to a smaller instance in the cloud, saving substantial funds.
Today, businesses harnessing data must navigate a wide variety of technologies—from data warehouses, Hadoop tools, and even web applications to cloud, on-premise, and hybrid deployments.

Tune in to learn:
- From Amazon Redshift to Microsoft SQL Server to Google Analytics: what data sources are taking over, and which are falling off the map
- Cloud, on-premise, or both? Where companies actually store their data, and why hybrid approaches matter now more than ever
- Where the world of data used for analysis is headed in 2017
If you’re running Hadoop for big data analytics this webinar is for you!
Currently, there are two competing architectures for how to implement Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). The original HDFS approach utilizes storage co-located with the compute servers, but that can often present challenges of wasted compute and/or storage when you scale. An emerging alternative relies on dedicated storage resources shared by the compute cluster, providing a cost-effective and reliable solution.
Join Engineering Fellow and Chief Data Scientist Janet George, as she compares and contrasts these two approaches and provides definitive quantities guidelines to planners and architects to help identify the best solutions for your Big Data and analytic needs.
Between these two methods, we’ll compare and contrast:
-Data Reliability and Bit Loss
-Cost of Capacity
All testing relies on modelling, but “test models are the only way forward for testers and businesses”, according to Paul Gerrard, Principal at Gerrard Consulting. This session reviews the use of modelling in testing and illustrate, using real life examples, how chaos and carnage is being replaced with structured order.
Paul sets out his vision for a “New Model of Testing” which puts models at the heart of high quality, efficient testing. This will be accompanied by a practical demonstration of how model-based approaches can be applied within a state-of-the-art DevOps framework including:
•How models can be used to capture accurately ever changing business requirements
•The “Shift left” effect of formal modelling for testing, where test cases, scripts, data and expected results can all be generated from the initial design
•How the testing assets derived from a model can be updated automatically, so that testing keeps up with the rate at which user needs change
Consumers are rushing to embrace the benefits of omnichannel retailing by choosing retail brands and businesses that have adapted the shopping experience to fit their connected "always on" lives. The physical store will continue to play a central if changed role in this new scenario and so bricks-and-mortar retailers need to leverage the strengths of their existing physical store network and their brand to offer customers a transformational shopping experience across all channels.
What Will You Learn?
In this webinar we highlight how retailers are using omnichannel to create differentiated shopping experiences designed to boost sales and margins, build loyalty and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. We explain how information technology can help retailers successfully implement key omnichannel concepts in a way that builds on the advantages of an existing physical store network and evolves at a pace the retailer can decide.

CISOs are often asked to justify a growing budget by showing ROI. But at the end of the day the security organization spends a lot of money and the answer to what is the ROI is that nothing happened. Because when the security leader is doing their job they are invisible. That is a very difficult conversation to have when you are trying to justify growing budget. The challenge is to change the perception as a cost center and become visible. This webinar will explore how to overcome these challenges by influencing the larger company’s budget to eliminate security concerns.
