    Using Analytics to Protect At-Risk Children Beena Tharakan, Ernst & Young and Greg Henderson, SAS Recorded: Dec 15 2017 64 mins
    One of the paramount responsibilities of government is the protection of the welfare of youths and children. Study after study has demonstrated the correlation between contact and interaction with child protective services and later quality-of-life outcomes. And on too many occasions, at-risk youth become tragic statistics before they reach adulthood.

    In the on-demand webinar Using Advanced Analytics to Protect At-Risk Children, hosted by Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) Chief Executive Officer Robert Taylor, experts from SAS Institute and Ernst & Young discuss the challenges facing child welfare professionals, how data from disparate sources can flag high-risk situations, and how an evidence-based approach, focused on outcomes for at-risk children, can be driven through the operation, from policy-makers to program managers to front-line workers and improve outcomes.

    The big data analytics market has undergone continuous transformation since its’ inception and continued in 2017 with new innovations and a strong move to the cloud.

    In this session, John will explore five ways in which modern big data platforms will enable to you:

  • Choosing the Right Mobile Payments Strategy for your Retail Business
    Choosing the Right Mobile Payments Strategy for your Retail Business Xavier Places, Director of Marketing, Openbravo Recorded: Dec 14 2017 40 mins
    Mobile technology has changed the way customers expect to pay and retail businesses that do not accept mobile payments may get left behind as the technology becomes more pervasive. In China, for example, cash transactions have almost disappeared and mobile payments more than doubled to $5 trillion in 2016 -- a country where the Openbravo POS solution already accepts mobile payments with AliPay and WeChat. Brick-and-mortar retailers have much to gain from embracing mobile payments because they provide convenience for consumers, modernize the in-store experience, and can encourage shoppers to spend more.
    What Will You Learn?
    We will explain the drivers behind the boom in mobile payments and describe some of the more popular “Pay” mobile wallet solutions such as Apple Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, along with technologies that focus on specific countries such as Alipay, WeChat and Google Tez. The mobile payments landscape is fragmented and in constant evolution, so we will advise retailers to carefully consider the technologies available. There are plenty of reasons to accept mobile payments, but to do so you will probably need to upgrade your POS systems, so we will help you weigh up the advantages and disadvantages and outline how Openbravo can help you realize your strategy.
