  • How to Bring BI into the Big Data World
    How to Bring BI into the Big Data World Claudia Imhoff, renowned analyst & Founder - Boulder BI Brain Trust and Ajay Anand, VP Products & Marketing - Kyvos Insights May 25 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Business intelligence (BI) has been at the forefront of business decision-making for more than two decades. Then along came Big Data and it was thought that traditional BI technologies could never handle the volumes and performance issues associated with this unusual source of data.

    So what do you do? Cast aside this critical form of analysis? Hardly a good answer. The better answer is to look for BI technologies that can keep up with Big Data, provide the same level of performance regardless of the volume or velocity of the data being analyzed, yet give the BI-savvy business users the familiar interface and multi-dimensionality they have come to know and love.

    This webinar will present the findings from a recent survey of Big Data and the challenges and value many organizations have received from their implementations. In addition, the survey will supply a fascinating look into what Big Data technologies are most commonly used, the types of workloads supported, the most important capabilities for these platforms, the value and operational insights derived from the analytics performed in the environment, and the common use cases.

    Attendees will also learn about a new BI technology built to handle Big Data queries with superior levels of scalability, performance and support for concurrent users. BI on Big Data platforms enables organizations to provide self-service and interactive on big data for all of their users across the enterprise.

    Yes, now you CAN have BI on Big Data platforms!

  • Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA)
    Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA) Rick van der Lans, Independent Business Intelligence Analyst and Lakshmi Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Denodo May 30 2018 8:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically
    copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
    So, what’s the solution?
    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

    Attend this session to learn:

    • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
    • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
    • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.

    Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.

    UCC Series [Ep. 5]: Conference Room of the Future Robin Gareiss, President & Founder, Nemertes Research May 30 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    At most organizations, conference rooms are less than perfect--and that affects the productivity of any meeting. Inconsistency is the cornerstone of meeting room space, whether it's the power outlet locations, wired or wireless connectivity, brand of digital whiteboard, or video conferencing capabilities. That's why many companies are investing in "Conference Room of the Future" initiatives.

    Nemertes recently conducted research among 600+ global organizations, and this webinar will focus on best practices.

    It will address the following:
    • What technologies are crucial to effective meetings?
    • Who should run the meeting-room overhauls for the most success --IT or facilities?
    • What are the differences between smaller, huddle rooms and large conference rooms, in terms of user expectations?
    • How do advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence and Internet of Things, play a role in meeting rooms?
    • What should IT leaders look for in management and monitoring tools?

    We look forward to sharing this information with you and answering your questions!

  • Scientific Data Explosion: Adapting IT Infrastructure So Research Can Thrive
    Scientific Data Explosion: Adapting IT Infrastructure So Research Can Thrive Adam Kraut, BioTeam - Scott Jeschonek, Avere Systems - Tim Carroll, Microsoft Azure Jun 6 2018 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The advancements in scientific computing and healthcare are coming fast—from next generation sequencing onto precision medicine, “big data” and artificial intelligence. We’re embarking on a massive convergence of clinical analysis and information systems, and many are not prepared. With these advancements in technologies, comes higher demand for both compute and storage to degrees difficult to comprehend. An NCBI published study predicts that up to 40 exabytes of storage capacity will be needed by 2025 just to support the growth of sequenced human genomes.
    Adapting to this exciting shift in science will require changes in the way we think about IT infrastructure. In this webinar, BioTeam’s Adam Kraut will discuss…

    •How science changes faster than IT infrastructure, and what we can do to keep pace.
    •Converged infrastructures and their impact on research productivity.
    •How machine learning and microservices are changing the way we architect Cloud solutions.

    In addition, you’ll hear how companies are already supporting HPC workloads in hybrid cloud environments to increase analytic throughput efficiently. These workloads supply adaptability to changing research needs, integration into existing resources, and scalability to support growing demand for both compute and storage capacity.

    - Anyone who uses BEx Analyser (or older) but is considering moving to Analysis for Office
    - Anyone who uses Analysis for Office and has experienced the frustrations of reporting and analysis within this tool.
    - Anyone looking for a more stable and reliable environment

    In this webinar, we will focus on four key areas that can help you retain and enhance the Excel reporting you already have.

    In this webcast, you will learn:

    1. Beyond PIVOT tables – How integration with native Excel can bolster planning and reporting functionality;
    2. Create real-time reports directly from SAP®;
    3. Create and maintain reports...without the help of IT;
    4. Empower users to use reports to their full potential – including modelling, analysis and drilldowns.
