  • Big Data & IoT Challenges for the Financial Services Industry
    Big Data & IoT Challenges for the Financial Services Industry Tariq Ali Asghar, CEO, Emerging Start Investment Group Jun 19 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    This webinar explains how Big Data in the context of IoT is going to impact Financial Services Organizations and what steps these incumbent organizations need to undertake for benefitting from this mega trend instead of getting drowned by it.

    The key take-away from this webinar is that “As financial services companies embark on a journey to gain a better understanding of customers in order to provide effective and differentiated services, the amount of data is growing, IoT is multiplying this growth of data, and data structures are becoming more complex. Fintech Organizations need to develop technical capabilities to handle this Big Data and turn it to their advantage.”

    About the speaker:
    Tariq is a Fintech Expert, writer and thinker based in Toronto Canada and is currently working on an initiative to disrupt the conventional Insurance Industry with “Block chain and IOT applications to the insurance industry” for his startup.
  • DeepStorage Test Drive: Tegile IntelliFlash T4000AFA
    DeepStorage Test Drive: Tegile IntelliFlash T4000AFA Howard Marks Founder and Chief Scientist Deepstorage; Gokul Sathiacama, Director, Product Marketing, Data Center Systems Jun 19 2018 5:30 pm UTC 45 mins
    DeepStorage Labs is known in the storage industry for pushing equipment to its limits, and for reporting what really happens at the edge of a system’s performance. Tegile’s IntelliFlash T4000, unlike a few previous occupants of the DeepStorage Labs ThunderDome, stood up to our testing and delivered high IOPS at a maximum of 1MS latency.

    DeepStorage subjected the InteliFlash T4000 workloads from the usual 4KB “hero number” random read to workloads that simulate OLTP and OLAP database servers, a file server and an Exchange server. We determined the systems performance individually and in combination finally determining the system’s ability to support the kind of mixed workload environment

    In this webinar we will:
    - Introduce the IntelliFlash array
    - Describe the testing process
    - Present the results
    - Review the test environment
    - Provide links to the test workload VDbench configurations
  • Reimagine Data Governance: Collaboration, Integration, Automation & More
    Reimagine Data Governance: Collaboration, Integration, Automation & More Andy Joss, Head of Solutions & Data Governance, Informatica & Giuseppe Mura, Principal Architect, Informatica Jun 20 2018 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    As organisations are seizing the opportunity to become more agile and enable transformation by intelligently using data, the need to act to defend against being disrupted by market, business, and technology forces has never been greater. With data increasingly becoming a business asset, organisations are looking to more intelligently deliver Data Governance as a way to maximise the value of their data.

    During this webinar Informatica will explore three fundamental requirements for Intelligent Data Governance:
    •Collaboration around data, across an organisation
    •Integration of organisational knowledge around data
    •Automation of the discovery of data, across an organization

    By combining these three requirements, plus more, Informatica will show how Intelligent Data Governance is rapidly changing the way organisations govern their most precious asset: their data.

  • 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 Jun 20 2018 6:00 pm UTC 45 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.

    In this webinar, Pivotal data scientist Ambarish Joshi will take you step-by-step through the engagement, explaining how he and his Pivotal colleagues worked with the customer to collect and analyze data, develop predictive models, and operationalize the resulting insights and surface them via APIs to customer-facing applications. In addition, you will learn how to:

    - Apply agile practices to data science and analytics.
    - Use test-driven development for feature engineering, model scoring, and validating scripts.
    - Automate data science pipelines using pyspark scripts to generate recommendations.
    - Apply a microservices-based architecture to integrate product recommendations into mobile applications and call center systems.
