Reference data are data that is defined and maintained outside the organisation who is using the data. Traditionally these have been small datasets like a country list. Parallel to the rise of big data in general reference data being used for both operational and analytical purposes is also growing in terms of volume, velocity and variety.
This webinar takes you through the different kinds of big reference data, the challenges and the opportunities in exploiting large sets of reference data from the outside.
The 3 big Shock happening on the market
1 The standard Relational DB cannot handle Big data
==> How to manage this now ?
2 the shift away from slice and dice reporting…
==> how to handle this now ?
3 The Value of Big Data increases sharply as latency decreases and the data delivers faster
==> how to face to this challenge ?
One of the major barriers to improving healthcare is making sense of the large volume of data involved. We show that a combination of Google's BigQuery and Tableau allows insightful, interactive analysis of English primary care prescribing data – approximately £35bn of NHS spend, £4.5 bn prescriptions issued by 10k GP practices from about 25k drugs). Tableau can allow insights into national trends but also allow interactive drill down to analyse local prescribing patterns for narrow ranges of drugs. We show how interaction even with large datasets greatly improves the impact of analysis on behaviour.

In the application economy, applications are the face of your business. Poorly performing applications and outages cost time and money. Just as importantly, bad applications can negatively impact user satisfaction and hurt an organization’s brand image. It is more important than ever to address performance and availability issues early in the software development lifecycle (SDLC). CA Application Performance Management (APM) can uniquely go wide (end to end) and at the same time provide deep visibility with low overhead. By making CA APM part of every phase of the SDLC organizations can achieve the goal of “Catch Early and Fix Early” and avoid bad applications from going into production.
In this webcast you will learn:
• Why it is important to catch and fix performance problems early
• How teams can leverage CA APM to enhance team productivity
• How CA APM enables collaboration that breaks down barriers between dev and ops

The value on data is rapidly shifting in many industries , recent high profile examples are the shift in ePayments where the micropayment transaction values are trending to fractions of cost. The value is more in what the payments provider and the banking system knows about the individual and the buying behaviour. Another is in the recent “Swift versus Apple” and Amazon tinkering with some eBook payments towards authors being “paid per number of pages read”. The issue of data and analytics is central to the sharing economy and the crowd economy that are driving new economic and monetisation business models.
This panel session looks at the emerging tools and business models that seek to deal with the digital convergence of data, customers and companies and the disintermediation and re-intermediation of markets.
Critical decisions that impact your productivity, profitability and safety in E&P rely on your surface and subsurface data from the well.
But, real time capture and interpretation of data used to monitor and measure well performance continues to be elusive. To be operationally ready, you need to eliminate the lag time between when the information is generated and the time your decision makers use it.
During this webinar, you will hear from experts in data management and integration at Informatica and SSG, who will share their views on big data integration, including how you can:
•Gain high speed access real time well data using industry WITSML standards
•Deliver well data to critical business applications and operational analytics used throughout your company
•Measure your business value through decreased costs, reduced downtime, and increased asset utilization
•Adopt best practices for establishing an impactful well data management program
While optimizing the digital oil field can be challenging, operationally ready E&P companies are using Informatica to improve production efficiency and gain improved visibility to the well that brings significant business benefits.
We hope you join us for this discussion and to learn more about how using great data enhances your existing processes and delivers business value.

Having data is not enough. Adding context to data is essential to understand the data, find patterns and engage audiences. Data visualization is a key element of data science, the interdisciplinary field which deals with finding insights from data. In this webinar, we explore the roles of data visualization at different stages of the data science process, and why it is essential. We also look at how data is encoded visually with shape, size, color and other variables and also the basic principles of visual encoding can be applied to build better visualizations. We cover narratives, types of bias and maps. Finally we look at how various tools – both open source and off-the-shelf software that’s used in data science to build effective data visualizations.
