  • Ingesting raw data into Hadoop is easy, but extracting business value leveraging exploration tools is not. Hadoop is a file system without a data model, data quality, or data governance, making it difficult to find, understand and govern data.

    In this webinar, Tony Baer, Principal Analyst of Ovum Research, will address the gaps and offer best practices in the end-to-end process of discovering, wrangling, and governing data in a data lake. Tony Baer will be followed by Oliver Claude who will explain how Waterline Data Inventory automates the discovery of technical, business, and compliance metadata, and provides a solution to find, understand, and govern data.

    Attend this webinar if you are:
    --A big data architect who wants to inventory all data assets at the field level automatically while providing secure self-service to business users
    --A data engineer or data scientist who wants to accelerate data prep by finding and understanding the best suited and most trusted data
    --A Chief Data Officer or data steward who wants to be able to audit data lineage, protect sensitive data, and identify compliance issues
  • Here’s the good news. While the number of data sources organizations face is rapidly increasing, the cost to store data has never been cheaper. This trend – as well as big data technologies like Hadoop – has led to more valuable insights for organizations.

    But it’s also led to IT departments overburdened with requests from the business users they support. So where do we go from here?

    View this webinar that discusses data federation, a type of data virtualization that:

    • Provides a centralized governance and security layer.
    • Speeds the creation of virtual data views.
    • Makes it easier for business users to access the data they need.

    We’ll also demonstrate technologies like big data virtualization, federated data-as-a-service and data masking.
  • SAS® In-Memory Analytics is built for speed. It enables you to access unstructured and structured data and tackle complex analytical computations blazingly fast. But it doesn’t end there.

    View this webinar to learn why SAS In-Memory Analytics can help you:

    • Tackle problems never before considered due to computing constraints.
    • Draw timely insights from Hadoop.
    • Perform self-service data discovery.
    • Run iterative and interactive analytics scenarios.
  • Your business is extremely competitive – a loyal customer can be lost with the click of a mouse, the wrong product mix erodes sales, and supply chain inefficiencies eat into profit margins. Have you begun transforming your business using Big Data to engage individually with customers, optimize your merchandising and logistics, and re-gain competitive advantage? If not, then it’s time to start your Big Data journey!

    In this webinar you will learn:
    •Big Data use-cases and market trends in Retail and CPG
    •Informatica’s Big Data solution for Retail and CPG
    •Real-world customer examples and case studies

    The wealth of data available to Retail and CPG companies often goes untapped, even though it can provide tremendous business value when managed as an asset. Using Informatica to access, transform, cleanse, and master Big Data can turn data captured from POS systems, social media, sales & marketing campaigns, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) feeds, supplier catalogs, clickstreams, mobile devices, and more into Great Data. Delivering great data to business, consumers, and suppliers lets you put the right products in front of the right customers at the right time.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to use Informatica for Big Data use-cases specific to the Retail and CPG industry such as omni-channel marketing campaign and supply chain optimization. Real-world examples and customer case studies will illustrate how other companies are achieving amazing results by fully leveraging their Big Data.

    Abstract:

    In an increasingly competitive marketplace, conversion rate optimization (CRO) tools, techniques, and tactics can be the difference between becoming a market leader or an ‘also ran.’

    The practice of gaining as much as possible from existing traffic, visits, reads, and views is becoming a serious business, and a raft of tools are carving out their place in the field.

    We’ll analyze the top solutions, revealing what techniques CRO practitioners use them for, how they are priced, how satisfied users are with them, how they score for each major feature, and what types of business use each product.

  • The Sponsor Perspective: Project Strategies for Success Recorded: Mar 20 2012 46 mins
    The Manta Group - Peter Rode
    Project managers have long faced the triple constraints of scope, schedule and cost. Yet too often when these hurdles have been overcome, the project might STILL be deemed a failure. Or the project might not add to the project manager'€™s reputation. Why not?

    Project managers deal with delivery, procurement, and people puzzles, to name a few. While real, these are not necessarily aligned with the pain points of a Project Sponsor. The project is merely the cross section where the project manager's and sponsor'€™s interests are temporarily aligned.

    We will explore the perspectives of the Project Sponsor, and assist project managers with strategies for working with sponsors of varying aptitude. This sometimes unwritten world may well hold the keys to project success, and the real results the PM is expected to deliver.

    In this 45 minute webcast you will learn:
    • The traits of a good Sponsor
    • Types of Sponsors and how to work with each
    • What Project Managers can do to line up Sponsor success
