  • Spinning Plates in a Changing Landscape
    Spinning Plates in a Changing Landscape Betty A. Kildow FBCI Recorded: Sep 15 2017 50 mins
    In recent years we have experienced ongoing changes in BCM: increasing demands from customers for a validated BC capability, new and/or increased risks such as cyber threats, the need to fully include supply chain continuity, changes in terminology, scope, technology, and planning procedures, and requirements to earn and maintain certifications for our organizations and ourselves. All this is in addition to day in/day out responsibilities. This conjures up a mental image of the performers who keep plates and bowls spinning on poles without letting any of them fall. For BC professionals this at times may even seem like preventing tumbling crockery while riding a unicycle.

    This webinar will explore current issues including the changing BC landscape, the division of responsibility for some risks such as cyber threats, and discuss the increasing importance of cooperation, collaboration and communication to avoid gaps and overlaps in efforts to develop a resilient organization.

  • Discoverer, Microsoft, & Java: Avoiding Compatibility Catastrophe!
    Discoverer, Microsoft, & Java: Avoiding Compatibility Catastrophe! Graham Spicer, Sales Director - UK Sumit Dahiya, Director of Technology Recorded: Sep 14 2017 60 mins
    It's a perfect storm... If you are like most Organizations still using Oracle Discoverer, you probably also run Microsoft products as well as Java. Did you know that these two can cause your Discoverer tool to error and crash?

    As you upgrade Windows, Excel, Outlook, etc., Discoverer becomes more incompatible, and you risk your reporting infrastructure. As Microsoft releases newer versions (Windows and Office), they are moving away from Java as part of the software. Customers already are finding with Windows 7 and Office, they are experiencing issues in exporting from Discoverer from Excel. In Windows 10, Discoverer Desktop & Discoverer Administrator will, at best, have serious issues, but more likely, will not work at all.

    Additionally, as you upgrade ANYTHING in Oracle, it will require you to upgrade your Java version to ensure security is maintained. Unfortunately, Discoverer's required Java version has been desupported for years, which means in the future, when you upgrade Oracle, there is a potential that Discoverer will become incompatible with any Oracle Database (or other software!).

    Join our webinar as we discuss what potential issues might be encountered should you stay on on Discoverer, while running Microsoft, Java, and Oracle, as well as how you can mitigate these risks with the SplashBI platform.

    Using Machine Learning to Manage User Access Jon Austin Osborne, Machine Learning Engineer, Capital One Sep 19 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In any enterprise, one of the most prevalent security risks revolves around who has access to which resources. Whether data is being stored in a cloud solution or on-premises, there is a large challenge in knowing how to provide the correct privileges to associates.

  • [Google Case Study] Optimizing Content for Improved Translation Effectiveness
    [Google Case Study] Optimizing Content for Improved Translation Effectiveness Jon Ann Lindsey, Google and Val Swisher, Content Rules Sep 19 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We’ve all heard advice about how to improve source content. These tips and tricks usually sound like perfectly reasonable suggestions. Common sense, right?

    But, where's the proof that these so-called best practices actually improve customer experience? In 2016, content strategists from Google visited 11 countries to talk to customers in order to find out what these real people actually want and need from their content. As it turns out, lessons learned from Google customer feedback research provided some surprising results.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler and my special guests, content strategy manager, Jon Ann Lindsey (Google) and global content strategy expert, Val Swisher (Content Rules), for a lively discussion about the importance of getting feedback before you make decisions about how you’ll translate and localize content. You'll learn several ideas you can use to adjust your source content so that your translations are improved. You’ll see lots of examples from content in the real world and leave with actionable items that you can implement immediately.

    You will learn which problems Google found (they weren't just the usual suspects) and to make big improvements in your content that are easy to implement. And you'll discover why overtly "empathetic" language and reassurances don't always serve the needs of customers.

  • Third Party Dependencies and semolina
    Third Party Dependencies and semolina Martin Caddick FBCI Sep 20 2017 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    This session is about thinking and planning outside your own organization boundaries as well as inside.
    I will use the ‘Great semolina disaster of Yarmouth’ as a case study, looking at what you might reasonably be expected to foresee, and why sharing plans is a good thing. I will also look at some case studies that changed the focus of regulators, who have become increasingly concerned about interdependencies between organizations.
    I will then look at what needs to be done to make sure you are working in the right way with the right third parties.
  • The “Good” BIA
    The “Good” BIA Kathleen Lucey FBCI Sep 20 2017 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    This webinar will enter the current “BIA Controversy” with a description of what works….and what doesn’t.
    I learned in 1991 what makes a BIA “not work” when my team and I had to deal with a BIA report that had covered all sites of a global firm.. Key characteristics: it took over 2 years to complete and had cost nearly half a million dollars, did not provide a basis for building a plan, and much of the information was out of date. So I made a few common-sense process changes that made all the difference in going forward to complete useful plans in a reasonable time-frame.

  • Deep Learning for Biotechnology on Qubole
    Deep Learning for Biotechnology on Qubole Matt Der, Chief Technology Officer, Notch.io Sep 20 2017 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    In the biological sciences, hypothesis-driven experiments and bottom-up design experiments rely on predicting what will happen with new cells and molecules. Machine learning excels at prediction and has become more democratized, making it an important component in the biotech toolkit. We use Merck's Kaggle competition as a representative task in this domain that involves predicting molecular activity from numeric descriptors of chemical structure. Our approach utilizes deep neural networks using the Keras library in a Qubole notebook, which is conveniently attached to an autoscaled Spark cluster. We use Spark to distribute the hyperparameter search for optimizing the neural net.
