Traditional data science education can be overwhelming. Mathematics, statistics, programming, algorithms — each of these subjects takes years to actually master. What’s worse is that even after learning them you still don’t have the practical skills and experience needed to solve real world business problems.
DataRobot University starts with the practical, teaching you what you need to know to start solving real world problems immediately. Because most of the technical work can now be automated, training can focus on everything else you need to ensure success. These include topics like scoping and framing data science projects, avoiding common mistakes, and communicating solutions to others in your organization.
The first rule of data analytics for fast-growing companies? Measure all things. When putting in place a robust data analytics strategy to go from measurement to insight, you’ve got lots of options for tools -- from databases and data warehouse options to new “big data” tools such as Hadoop, Spark, and their related components. But tools are nothing if you don’t know how to put them to use.
We’re going to get some real talk from practitioners in the trenches and learn how people are bringing together new big data technologies in the cloud to deliver a truly world class data analytics solution. One such practitioner is Celtra, a fast-growing provider of creative technology for data-driven digital display advertising. We’re going to sit down with the Director of Engineering, Analytics at Celtra to learn how they built a high-performance data processing pipeline using Spark + a cloud data warehouse, enabling them to process over 2 billion analytics events per day in support of dashboards, applications, and ad hoc analytics.
In this webinar you’ll:
* Build a simpler, faster solution to support your data analytics
* Support diverse reporting and ad hoc analytics in one system
* Take advantage of the cloud for flexibility, scaling, and simplicity
* Evan Schuman, Moderator, VentureBeat
* Grega Kešpret, Director of Engineering, Analytics, Celtra
* Jon Bock, VP of Marketing and Products, Snowflake

Optimizing manufacturing processes ultimately revolves around increasing output at reduced cost and improved quality. Manufacturers try to minimize inventory levels by scheduling just-in-time delivery of raw materials, but even the smallest miscalculation can cause stock-outs that lead to production delays. Sensors and RFID tags can capture supply chain data, but this creates a large, ongoing flow of data. Hadoop can cost-effectively store this unstructured data, providing manufacturers with greater visibility into their supply chain history, and greater insight into longer term supply chain patterns. This gives manufacturers more lead time to adjust to supply chain disruptions, as well as helps reduce costs and improve margins on finished products.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Hortonworks have a strategic partnership to help manufacturers realize their modern data architecture. Join us for this webinar and learn how Hortonworks leading enterprise-ready open data platform in combination with HPE’s leadership position in the worldwide x86 server market provides manufacturing organizations with proven solutions to help transform manufacturing processes.
The cloud is here to stay. However, that also means more and more companies are realizing that they’ve built two separate IT teams and are struggling to deliver quality services without a unified view. A true hybrid monitoring solution is the answer to this common problem.
Join Jay Lyman, Analyst at 451 Research, and Kent Erickson, Alliance Strategist at Zenoss, as they discuss what is shaping hybrid IT, where it's going, and what to do about it.

RISC/UNIX servers for database applications were never intended to meet the demands of the efficiency and scalability that today’s organizations demand. Concerns regarding the expense of the OS’s proprietary hardware, however, are leading IT professionals to consider embarking on Unix-to-Linux migrations — and advancements in x86 servers like HP’s DL980 are easing the transition to platforms like Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.
SAP HANA has become a mission-critical application in many organizations but choosing the proper hardware option to optimize performance is essential. A prebuilt and integrated appliance like HP AppSystems for SAP HANA, based on industry-leading HP DL980 servers, can accelerate solution deployment, providing a highly supportable architecture, and minimizing any unplanned downtime.
Every day, roughly 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created. Often referred to as “Big Data,” these data sets can be so large and complex that organizations can no longer effectively store, search, share, or analyze them with current database management tools. However, “in-memory computing” solutions such as the DL980 are an ideal platform for supporting this initiative.
s the reality of virtual and cloud environments comes to life and the need for highly reliable infrastructure increases, many IT professionals are re-thinking server choices. Platforms with greater levels of scalability and reliability are essential, as is the ability to more effectively meet the demands of “Big Data” and the new class of Enterprise applications.
One of the most common IT buzzwords is “Big Data.” The question is, what are the business benefits and value to your organization. This video shows how HP brings the benefits of Big Data to life and to the benefit of your organization.
The competitive nature of today’s business is extreme. And one of the most important demands on the business is the ability to move fast. In many cases, the ability to change is driven by the speed at which you can understand key information. Many times underpowered or obsolete systems make this time-consuming or impossible. Fast IT Infrastructure is critical
The SAP HANA in-memory platform is revolutionizing business performance with real-time data capabilities. Join us for an introductory webcast about SAP HANA in the Cloud to learn about this breakthrough in-memory computing platform accessible through Amazon Web Services. We will discuss the different use cases that work well with HANA One and start a live instance in 5 minutes.
CIO and CTO executives from RTT, South Africa’s largest privately-owned supply chain services and distribution company, talk about how they radically transformed their underperforming IT infrastructure with HP ProLiant DL980 G7 systems. A successful proof of concept convinced RTT that an HP server solution running Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 would boost system performance and reduce costs. The new HP solution will enable RTT to improve its customized logistics services to clients in niche industries which demand high specialization.

Richard Fichera, VP & Principal Analyst, Forrester Research, Inc. with IT Execs from Paycor & Monterey Peninsula College
Are you considering an x86 server for a new business-critical application, or are you thinking of migrating an existing Unix RISC application to x86? x86 systems and CPU technology have evolved rapidly over the last several years and this platform is now capable of running workloads previously associated with larger proprietary UNIX systems. In addition, both Windows and Linux, the principal operating environments for these servers, have matured to the point where the combination of x86 server and these OS' can handle workloads associated with the largest UNIX systems from as little as three years ago.
Tune into this live webcast with our guest Forrester analyst Richard Fichera as he speaks to the underlying trends driving modern infrastructure, when to consider moving from Unix to Windows or Linux changing principal operating environments, what to look for in an x86 platform and porting guidance. Rich will be joined by two IT executives who will share their business challenges, their decision-making process, and the business benefits they have achieved with their chosen database server solution, followed by a live Q & A.

IT departments are under constant pressure to decrease time-to-data that drives business decisions and allows quick reaction to new market opportunities. Exponential database growth has led to a performance and availability crisis for business critical applications that cannot be solved with software tuning. The problem is I/O and can be solved only by increased I/O through a combination of more powerful servers and a breakthrough in storage performance.
Please join us on this webcast to introduce you to a new, integrated high performance database solution from HP, Violin Memory and Red Hat that solves the I/O issues for business-critical OLTP and BI/DW applications.
