  • Top 5 Pitfalls of Developing and Deploying Smart Applications at the Edge
    Top 5 Pitfalls of Developing and Deploying Smart Applications at the Edge Desmond Tan, Senior Director, Zen Product Engineering, Actian Recorded: Jun 20 2018 34 mins
    Efforts to derive value from Edge Computing and IoT continue to grow.

    In addition to the multitude of PoCs taking place in the Cloud, scaled up implementations are increasingly looking at local persistent data and the underlying device and gateway technologies that are evolving to accommodate this new design requirement. Central to this shift is the growth of developer communities around Android, iOS, embedded Linux and Windows, Intel/ARM and others, driving a surge of new applications with locally managed and analyzed data on IoT/OT edge devices and gateways.

    Considerations for metadata management, data movement, security, and governance of data associated with these apps, overhead for processing and packaging, and security concerns will require on-device and gateway persistent storage. Flat file systems and other prior tools don’t meet modern embedded data management platform or analytics requirements.

    Join us to hear how to deliver persistent data management at the edge.

    - Avoid the hassle and security complications that ETL between things, gateways and datacenters will create.
    - Experience a real-world demo in Python with source code samples showing how you can code once and deploy to multiple target platforms.

  • Enterprise Artificial Intelligence
    Enterprise Artificial Intelligence Rajkumar Vaidyanathan,Senior Director & Principal Data Scientist at Noodle.ai Jun 25 2018 1:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    Enterprises are a complex ecosystem where multiple business entities interact in highly non-linear and iterative fashion often resulting in operational chaos. Human stakeholders tend to make decisions based on intuition and limited perspective. AI and machine learning algorithms can augment these decision-making processes by removing guess-work to a large extent. This enables reduction of cognitive bias that may exist. Enterprise AI is a convergence of business context, design & human factors, technology and data science. The talk will give an insight into what type of challenges exist in an enterprise and how a data-driven AI solution can help augment the theory-based models to improve the overall operational efficiency.

  • Scalable End-to-End Deep Learning using TensorFlow™ and Databricks
    Scalable End-to-End Deep Learning using TensorFlow™ and Databricks Brooke Wenig, Data Science Solutions Consultant at Databricks, Siddarth Murching, Software Engineer at Databricks Jun 27 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Deep Learning has shown tremendous success, and as we all know, the more data the better the models. However, we eventually hit a bottleneck on how much data we can process on a single machine. This necessitates a new way of training neural networks: in a distributed manner.

    In this webinar, we walk through how to use TensorFlow™ and Horovod (an open-source library from Uber to simplify distributed model training) on Databricks to build a more effective recommendation system at scale. We will cover:

    - The new Databricks Runtime for ML, shipped with pre-installed libraries such as Keras, Tensorflow, Horovod, and XGBoost to enable data scientists to get started with distributed Machine Learning more quickly
    - The newly-released HorovodEstimator API for distributed, multi-GPU training of deep learning models against data in Apache Spark™
    - How to make predictions at scale with deep learning pipelines

    To empower insights-driven, analytical cultures in a new world of big data, organizations are adopting data lake architectures and AtScale semantic layers to enhance capabilities of existing reporting tools.

    Join Jen Underwood, Founder of Impact Analytix and Wendy Gradek, Director of Product Marketing at AtScale to learn about the key steps and implications that you need to take into consideration when planning a successful migration to BI on Big Data.

    Join this webinar to learn:
    - 10 steps to succeed when moving to a semantic layer for big data reporting.
    - What do you need to succeed to enable your BI for Big Data.
    - How to build a case and calculate business value.

  • Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (North America)
    Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (North America) Rick van der Lans, Independent Business Intelligence Analyst and Lakshmi Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Denodo Jun 27 2018 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
    So, what’s the solution?

    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

    Attend this session to learn:

    • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
    • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
    • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.

    Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.

  • Better Customer Engagement Through Integrated Collaboration Tools
    Better Customer Engagement Through Integrated Collaboration Tools Robin Gareiss, Nemertes Research Jun 28 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Organizations are focusing heavily on improving customer engagement. Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) tools are crucial to success, as they help to locate experts quickly and engage customers using the best method of interaction—ultimately driving measurable business benefits.
    That’s one of many reasons it’s crucial for IT leaders to select the best UCC provider for their requirements, using the right architecture and management tools. Indeed, IT leaders wrestle with UCC architecture decisions for a variety of reasons. Will they lose too much control if they migrate to the cloud? How will they monitor service quality and troubleshoot complex problems? How easy will it be to integrate across a hybrid UCC implementation—and effectively manage in a single pane of glass?
    Join Nemertes President Robin Gareiss, who has conducted extensive research on how organizations are leveraging their UCC capabilities to improve the customer engagement.
    During this data-backed webinar, we’ll cover the following:
    • What are the measurable business benefits of leveraging collaboration apps for customer engagement? We’ll look at some real-world case studies.
    • How do organizations architect and manage UCC solutions? What are the best practices?
    • Hybrid UCC deployments are on the rise. What are the pitfalls you should be aware of, and how can you hedge against them?
    • What are the key actions that will ensure the lowest operational costs?
    • What are some steps you can take today to avoid pain tomorrow?

    The Adoption Gap in Learning: How Brain Science Can Bridge the Divide Todd Maddox, Ph.D Jun 28 2018 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    All too often, L&D vendors offer a plethora of tools with no guidance on when to use which tools. The result: weak adoption and sub-optimal learning and performance with no clear path forward. This talk briefly reviews the plethora of exciting new technologies on the L&D market, the psychology and brain science of learning, and a set of best practices for mapping these technologies onto representative learning problems.

    First, we start with a quick tour of the array of technologies available to L&D professional. Next, we offer a primer on the psychology and brain science of learning and discover the multiple distinct learning systems that have evolved in the brain to learn different skills. We conclude by providing an example of an effective mapping from learning tools to learning problem that derives from the learning science.

    By attending this talk, you can bring back to your organization a better understanding of how psychology and brain science can be leveraged to provide a roadmap for successfully training employees.
