  • Architects Agenda: Accelerate your Cloud Data Warehousing Journey
    Architects Agenda: Accelerate your Cloud Data Warehousing Journey Kuber Sharma - Microsoft Product Marketing Manager Azure SQL DW, Rik Tamm-Daniels - Cloud and Big Data Alliances, Informatica Jul 17 2018 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Data warehousing has evolved. Conventional, on-premises data warehouses are simply unable to provide the agility, elasticity or pay-as-you-go efficiency that today's businesses and analytics use cases demand. But replacing an established on-premise EDW is not as simple as moving tables from point A to point B; the move to cloud data warehousing requires an incremental, well-governed approach to rapidly deliver business results while ensuring minimal disruption to existing applications and analytic workloads.

    During this webinar Kuber Sharma, Microsoft Product Marketing Manager for Azure SQL DW and Rik Tamm-Daniels, Senior Director for Strategic Cloud and Big Data Alliances at Informatica will discuss:

    • Benefits and challenges of moving to cloud data warehousing.
    • Customer examples focused on best practices.
    • How to build the business case for moving to a cloud data warehouse model with Azure.

    Over the next 3 years more than half of all enterprises are expected to replace their data warehouse systems. Join this webinar to learn how quickly and easily you can begin your cloud data warehousing journey with Informatica and Microsoft Azure.

    - How containers change incident response and forensics

    - Best practices around forensic data collection in container environments

    - Compare opensource and commercial forensics options

  • Separating Query from Storage in BI and Analytics:  The Presto Story
    Separating Query from Storage in BI and Analytics: The Presto Story Matt Aslett of 451 Research & Justin Borgman of Starburst Jul 18 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As enterprises continue the steady migration towards the cloud, a new data architecture is gaining popularity that takes advantage of the natural separation of compute and storage the cloud provides. By separating the query engine from the data layer, companies are able to elastically scale each independently and optimize for the lowest cost and highest performance.

    The open source Presto project was purpose-built for this and is being used by leading companies like Facebook, Airbnb, Uber, Netflix, and LinkedIn to empower analysts and data scientists to run SQL queries on data no matter where it resides, whether that's Hadoop, S3, or a traditional RDBMS.

    Join this webcast to learn why companies are changing the very definition of what a "database" is and using Presto to query anything, anywhere.

    BI and Big Data veterans Matt Aslett, Research Director at 451 Research and Justin Borgman, CEO at Starburst will deliver this session covering current industry trends, real use case scenarios and answering questions from the audience.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    - The pros and cons of separating query from storage
    - An overview of the open source Presto project
    - How to apply the principles of this cloud architecture in both public and private clouds

    3 Challenges of Distributed Agile Retrospectives & How to Solve Them Michael Ball-Marian, Agile Expert at CA Technologies Jul 19 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Of all the Agile practices, none is more foundational than the inspect & adapt cycle of the retrospective. Even if you struggle with every other aspect of Agile, if you consistently engage in productive retrospectives, you will get better.

    Industry surveys and studies suggest that 80% or more of Agile organizations have at least some distributed teams. Most of the traditional retrospective methods assume that all team members are co-located.

    Running effective retrospectives for distributed teams presents unique challenges, but also, potentially, some great advantages. In this webinar, Agile coach and Instant Agenda co-founder Michael Ball-Marian will discuss the three greatest challenges to running distributed Agile retrospectives and how to solve them. Michael will share a variety of tips and techniques that you can use in any retrospective, co-located or distributed. Finally, he’ll present a few ways in which a distributed retrospective can actually be better than a co-located one.
