  • Self-service is the biggest lie in BI Self-service is the biggest lie in BI Glen Rabie, CEO, Yellowfin Recorded: Mar 22 2017 2 mins
    Why does BI have such low adoption rates? Simple: vendors have been selling the wrong product to the wrong audience.

    Don’t get me wrong. The modern generation of BI delivers a fantastic experience for the data analyst. The problem is that the business user has no real interest in BI, other than the end insights that help them do their job better. Data preparation, discovery and report building are not “self-service” activities, and they never will be.
  • State of the Money Transfer Industry: Challenges and Opportunities in 2017 State of the Money Transfer Industry: Challenges and Opportunities in 2017 Hugo Cuevas-Mohr, Director at IMTC Conferences and Mohr World Consulting; Fernando Fayzano, CEO at Pontual Money Services Recorded: Mar 22 2017 64 mins
    A tale as old as time: the want and need to move money, transfer it. And for the last 150 years that need has been met by the Money Transfer Industry. Today, this need is still as relevant as it was back then when the first money transfer took place, and so are the businesses providing that service. The Money Transfer Industry is, in fact, fundamental for the world economic activity.

    Much has happened since that first wire transfer: migration trends changes, de-risking, technology innovations, new business models, stricter regulations, higher regulators’ expectations, and the rise of FinTech; but the role of Money Transfer Organizations is just as important as ever; or maybe even more.

    With an outlook such as this, we are looking to industry experts for guidance to navigate these unknown waters. To understand the trends that will be defining the Industry in 2017, and how you can make sure your organization is ready the face the challenges, and make the best of the opportunities to come.

    Join Hugo Cuevas-Mohr, Director at IMTC Conferences and Mohr World Consulting; Fernando Fayzano, CEO at Pontual Money Services; and Jose Caldera (moderator) VP of Products at IdentityMind Global in discussing:

    - The top of mind issues that are keeping Industry leaders busy (and up at night) in 2017
    - AML and Fraud Prevention: strengthening your processes through technology
    - De-Risking: What’s in store for the year ahead?
    - Land ahoy! - The promise of new markets: the unbanked and underbanked
    - Going digital: What it means to your business

  • Make Sure You Pack Data Management for Your Journey to Cloud Make Sure You Pack Data Management for Your Journey to Cloud Philip Russom, Ph.D., Sr. Research Director, Data Management Recorded: Mar 20 2017 19 mins
    Your journey to cloud can take many forms. For example, you may move your whole data center or just single applications and databases. You may move existing solutions or build new green-field ones on the cloud, such as Hadoop implementations and data lakes. And you may evolve into a cloud-only architecture or one that’s a hybrid mix of multiple platforms on clouds and on premises. All of these journeys involve a migration of massive amounts of diverse data, and so require substantial data management infrastructure, tools, and best practices, during both development and production. TDWI’s Philip Russom will tell you what data management best practices to pack for success in your journey to cloud, regardless of the path you take.

  • Faster Time-to-Insights by 10 – 100x with Fuzzy Logix & Hortonworks Faster Time-to-Insights by 10 – 100x with Fuzzy Logix & Hortonworks Sean Roberts, Hortonworks; Munir Bondre and Aashu Virmani, Fuzzy Logix Recorded: Mar 16 2017 59 mins
    The all-time golden rule in business is “time is money". The results of the Annual Big Data Executive Survey conducted by NewVantage Partners confirmed that reducing the ‘time-to-insight’ is the most specific driver for the major companies to invest in Big Data projects.
     
    Traditional approaches to analytics forced you to move data from where it was stored to separate analytics servers. This resulted in huge penalties like: 
     
    High cost of expensive hardware
    Slow turnaround time as 80% of the time was spent on moving the data 
    Outdated and inaccurate analysis due to the memory constraint of the analytics servers as models could only be run on a sample of the data and not the entire data set
     
    During this webinar we will share with you how: 
    Fuzzy Logix’s flagship In-Hadoop analytics product can help you to eliminate the middle layer of the analytics servers and increase your time-to-insights by 10x to 100x
    A real-world use case based on the example of one of our customers who was able to decrease the time spent on analytics from 30 hours to 17 minutes by implementing our solution 
    Success stories across Finance, Retail, Healthcare, Insurance & IoT resulting in millions of dollars in savings due to faster time to insights
