  • Delivering Self-Service Analytics and Discovery from your Data Lake
    Delivering Self-Service Analytics and Discovery from your Data Lake
    Jorge Villamariona, Qubole Recorded: Dec 13 2018 31 mins
    As corporations augment their corporate data warehouses and data marts with cloud data lakes in order to support new big data requirements, the question about how to grant governed access to those data lakes becomes more pressing. Certainly, capturing new and different types of data is important but deriving value from those datasets remains the ultimate goal.

    Whether or not the data lake consumers write SQL or leverage 3rd party BI and visualization tools, what matters is that they can continue to be productive using the skills and tools they already know. The difference is that now those tools and skills should be used with back-end engines that can can help them quickly sift through petabytes of data and at the same time provide support for fast interactive queries.

    This means that in order for those data lake investments to succeed it is important for data admins to provide: SQL access to all authorized data, support for BI tools, cross-team collaboration capabilities, and governed self-service.

    In this webinar we will cover:
    - Data collaboration and access using SQL
    - Tools that enable fast self-service for different teams
    - Considerations for choosing the right SQL back-end for your use case

  • Customer Success: How do you enable the mindset and infuse the culture?
    Customer Success: How do you enable the mindset and infuse the culture?
    Shreesha Ramdas | CEO at STRIKEDECK Dec 18 2018 10:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Customer success isn't just about a title, department, or jumping into an account manager role. It is a lifestyle. It should flow through the veins, and ooze out every pore. From the external, it appears that it comes from jumping on top of tasks and engaging with customers, but true CSM's feed their entire lives not just into their assigned customers or company customers, but every customer that they have an interaction with. This includes walking into Starbucks and holding the door open for that person behind you, or picking up the paper towels on the floor in the bathroom. Demonstrating that customer success can happen everywhere you go. It can go unappreciated, but this is also where it can catch on. Your co-workers, potential customers, and perhaps even the occasional current customer are watching. The mentality of being there to serve others is a culture shift which can catch people off guard and see the difference as to why they selected you as their vendor. So the next time you visit Starbucks, don't just walk in, but hold the door and give that person a huge high five!

  • Digital Transformation Mindset - More Than Just Technology
    Digital Transformation Mindset - More Than Just Technology
    Neil Avery, Confluent + Tapas Chandra, Wells Fargo + Shubho Chatterjee, Independence Blue Cross + Vishal Venkatram, GE Power Dec 20 2018 10:00 am UTC 64 mins
    Many enterprises faced with silo’ed, batch-oriented, legacy systems struggle to compete in this new digital-first world. Adhering to the ‘If it’s not broken don’t fix it’ mentality leaves the door wide open for native digital challengers to grow and succeed. To stay competitive, your organization must respond in real time to every customer experience transaction, sale, and market movement. But how do you get there? First, you must change your mindset.

    As streaming platforms become central to data strategies, companies both small and large are re-thinking their enterprise architecture with real-time context at the forefront. Monoliths are evolving into microservices. Datacenters are moving to the cloud. What was once a ‘batch’ mindset is quickly being replaced with stream processing as the demands of the business impose real-time requirements on technology leaders.

    Join Argyle, in partnership with Confluent, in our 2018 CIO Virtual Event: The Digital Transformation Mindset – More Than Just Technology. During the webinar we’ll learn how leading companies across industries rely on a streaming platform to make event-driven architectures central to:

    • How data strategies and IT initiatives are improving the digital customer experiences
    • How executives are reducing risk with real time monitoring and anomaly detection
    • Increasing operational agility with microservices and IoT architectures within organizations
  • Migrate PC & Mobility with Unified Endpoint Management

    GDPR: What You Need to Know Now
    Florin Lazurca, Technical Security Strategist, Citrix and Stephen Twynam ,Senior Sales Engineer, Citrix Dec 20 2018 7:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    In May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect. Are you ready? In a recent Ponemon study, 67% of respondents were aware of the GDPR, but only 50% of the organisations had allocated budget and started to prepare for these new regulations. GDPR will impose new rules on businesses, government agencies, and other organisations that offer goods and services to people in the European Union.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    • More about GDPR and how it will impact you
    • How you can work towards GDPR compliance

    Scared of data security in SaaS applications? Don’t worry, we have your back
    Akhilesh Dhawan, Dir. Product Marketing, Networking/Security; Praveen Raghuraman, Dir. Product Management, Networking, Citrix Dec 28 2018 7:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    Most organizations have some data stored in SaaS applications or are thinking of moving to SaaS. Some of this migration to SaaS is controlled by IT (sanctioned SaaS apps), while most of this migration is undertaken by individual business units (unsanctioned SaaS apps) in order to achieve better productivity or to get some tasks done. While IT has deployed methods like single sign-on to sanctioned applications, they cannot control access to any unsanctioned SaaS applications using the same SSO solution. And traditional single sign-on solutions don’t provide any control on what actions a user can take after they login to SaaS applications, nor do they provide security policies for IT to control user access to the Internet.

    In this session, you will learn about a single solution that helps:

    • Improve user experience with single sign-on to SaaS, web and virtual apps
    • Implement enhanced security policies for SaaS apps to control user actions after login
    • Enable Web filtering to control what users cannot access on the Internet
    • Securely browse the internet
    • Provide end to end visibility and user behavior analytics with Citrix Analytics
