    Today the services, or tertiary sector, is driving the European economy, generating around 70 % of EU GDP and employment . It’s Energy Consumption has been growing continuously since 2008, with just trade premises and offices clocking up over 50%. Hence the importance of making this sector more energy efficient and reducing its carbon footprint.

    Energy efficiency has become a new resource itself: it’s competitive, cost effective, and widely available. But, it seems that 74% of people think that organisations are still not doing enough to cut their carbon emission and tackle climate change . Lack of knowledge and financial constraints are two of the main reasons behind this.

    Being aware of your organisation’s footprint will allow you to reduce sources of carbon from your company’s operations and start planning a carbon neutral journey. So how do you get started?
    The ICTFOOTPRINT.eu webinar will ensure you’re on the ball in low carbon footprint.

    Who are our speakers?

    Jakub Bartnicki: Energy & Built Environment Services Manager at Bureau Veritas, will introduce the Green Rating for Energy Performance Contracts, a technical and financial assessment methodology developed through the Horizon2020-funded Trust EPC South project.

    Adina Braha-Honciuc: Government Affairs Manager – EU Policy at Microsoft, will showcase the Microsoft Carbon Fee report. The company reduced energy and emissions, bought clean energy to cover what it could not reduce and invested in offset projects for the carbon Microsoft cannot reduce or replace. These efforts are funded by Microsoft internal carbon fee, which charges all Microsoft’s business groups for their carbon footprint.

    Derek Webster is the Yahoo! EMEA Head of Data Center Development, CEO at Data Center Consultancy Andget. Derek will demonstrate how formula one (F1 DC) Designs can reach the Enterprise Site with Macro Green to ROI benefits.

    Has Big Data Taken a Byte out of Your Budget? Josh Klahr, VP of Product, AtScale Nov 30 2017 5:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    The average enterprise executive invests over $20M per year in Big Data technology. The work required to turn this investment into enterprise value has been arduous and perilous at best. According to Gartner, 60% of Big Data projects fail.

    Building an enterprise-grade data warehouse in days, not months.
    Running analytics with best-in-class user experience and performance, at a fraction of the cost. Early deployments of AtScale have shown query speed increase by 10X and query costs reduce by up to 1,000X on top of the savings you’re currently experiencing with BigQuery

    - How AtScale on Google BigQuery works
    - How customers can benefit from unparalleled cost savings

  • Measuring Customer Lifetime Value Across Platforms, Devices and Apps
    Measuring Customer Lifetime Value Across Platforms, Devices and Apps Nicolas Nadeau, President, Exostatic Nov 30 2017 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Companies with multiple products often struggle to calculate accurate Customer Lifetime Value (CLTV) across their portfolio. This is because user data is often analyzed in silos so companies are unable to get a clear picture of ROI and CLTV across platforms, devices and apps.

    In this webinar we’ll look at how you can apply a holistic and complete approach to your CLTV and ROI through the lens of gaming companies, though this technique is applicable for any company who has products spanning platforms.

    We’ll also explore:
    How the integral power of data in business has shifted over the past 10 years.
    Discover the current technologies and processes used to analyze data across different platforms by combining multiple data streams, looking at examples in brand and portfolio-based LTV.
    How to process and centralize dozens of varying data streams.

    Nicolas Nadeau will speak from his extensive experience and show how leveraging data from multiple product strategies spanning many platforms can be highly beneficial for your company.
  • Beyond the Data Lake: Self-service Marketplaces on the rise
    Beyond the Data Lake: Self-service Marketplaces on the rise Matt Aslett, Research Director, Data Platforms & Analytics, 451 Research Paul Barth, CEO, Podium Data Nov 30 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The idea of the data lake was alluring; the means to having data at your fingertips, filtered, profiled, secure and business-ready for data consumers to rapidly derive higher-levels of business value. However, this widely adopted concept didn’t come with an instruction manual.
    The past few years have been turbulent times for enterprise data and analytics. In this live discussion, the presenters look beyond the lake, discussing the combination of self-service data preparation and data management and governance as one; a truly functional data marketplace or “data bazaar”. In addition, they will touch on other key enablers fueling the adoption of the self-service marketplace, including;
    •Data as a service,
    •Smart data ingestion – validation/profiling,
    •Smart data cataloging/search,
    •Data governance,
    •Machine-learning-driven recommendations,
    •Data collaboration.

    Stop losing game revenue and players to cyber attacks Sudhir Vallamkondu, CTO, JumpRamp Games Dec 6 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Cyberattacks cost companies over $1 million per day and the video game industry is being targeted more than ever. The global audience is huge and growing across demographics. The number of platforms, from personal computers, consoles and hand-helds to smartphones and tablets, makes a smorgasbord of vulnerable users.

    And then the bad guys get to work. Accounts are hacked to rip off virtual items your users have invested time and money on, and real-world identification and financial information is harvested for sale. All told, DoS attacks piss off users and drop game income, and more.

    Game publishers and developers are the ones who end up shouldering the blame, taking massive financial and reputational hits. But there are increasingly sophisticated ways to lock out the hackers, keep your users safe, and your intellectual property secure.

    Join this VB Live event to learn from digital security experts about the four key perimeters of defense, how to proactively secure your environment, and protect against the increasing number of hacks, DDoS attacks, and more.
