The cloud will inevitably be a component of your customers’ and prospects’ strategies, not to mention your own. But how does this impact analytics? That question is especially important since the journey to the cloud has many stops, and most companies won’t move all their data to the cloud immediately.
It’s a heterogeneous, hybrid world out there: some data must stay on-premises, while some data is born in the cloud and should stay there. Other data allows discretion around migration and can be left in place. But when it comes to analytics, the work should encompass all data. Yet, how is that achieved with a single platform, when data isn’t centralized?
The good news is solutions and architectures exist to achieve this mission. To learn more about applying analytics across all data in the cloud, on-premises or otherwise, plan to attend this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research. The Webinar features GigaOm Analyst Andrew Brust and special guests, Mathias Golombek, CTO, and Helena Schwenk, AR and Market Insights Manager from Exasol, a leader in in-memory analytic databases

Lisa Dennis, The Buyer-Focused Value Propositions ExpertRecorded: Apr 11 201941 mins
An elevator pitch is often confused with a value proposition. The assumption is that if you have the pitch down, you will be able to drive the right buyer conversation.

A pitch should be a distillation of a strong message strategy that is well developed and thought out. The best elevator pitches and tag lines come from a strong foundation – ensuring that message is clear, consistent and buyer

Jeremy Meier and David Noh, both Undergraduate Students at Clemson University - An Investigation into Time Series Analysis
Over the past several months, our team has worked closely with a dataset having roughly 16,000 total observations, recording both the date and balance in financial data. Focusing on individual accounts with a size of around 400 observations, our first goal was to compare statistical metrics and techniques used commonly in time series analysis on the given data sets. We dove deep into two major industry standard methods for understanding and predicting on a dataset. Using insights learned from these observations, we hope to better predict future balances in the dataset, as well as find any anomalies or misbehavior in the data in order to provide business value.

HPCC Systems' new TextVectors module supports vectorization for words, phrases, or sentences in a parallelized, high-performance, and user-friendly package.

Delivering exceptional web experiences today requires a CDN that can go beyond the edge, and actually give you control and optimizations in the browser.
As the web quickly changes, your customers expect more secure and performant web experiences. It’s crucial that your CDN does more than just cache static files and be available all around the world.
The truth is, almost 50% of the requests an average website makes comes from a third party, which means a traditional CDN is only delivering half of your web experience. On top of that, the browser, not the edge, is becoming the point where optimizations and control need to be applied to give every user a great experience with your website.
In this webinar, we’ll cover:
- What makes up a modern website: public cloud, third-party tags, and dynamic content all coming together in the browser
- Why modern websites need more than just caching and delivery to enable exceptional customer experiences
- What optimizations and controls you should be looking for in a modern CDN
Social networks today are undergoing a massive paradigm shift when it comes to content moderation. From tragic shootings broadcast live on Facebook, to YouTube removing comments on children's' videos due to child predator concerns, social platforms are under fire from users, governments, and law enforcement to adopt better technology and strengthen their content moderation practices.
It’s not all bad news. Business leaders have also realized that accurate, efficient moderation, coupled with positive reinforcement, can increase user retention and encourage growth.
But who is responsible for enforcing these policies and practices? How did hate speech, abuse, and extremism become the “cost of being online”? And how can like-minded businesses band together to raise the bar and make their social platforms engaging, safe for all users, and ultimately, more profitable?
Join Two Hat CEO and founder Chris Priebe and veteran analyst and market influencer Brian Solis for an insightful talk about the changing landscape of online conversations and the role of content moderation. Social abuse and objectionable materials need no longer be the price of admission.
Register today for this free event!
*How to start a dialogue in your organization around protecting your audience without imposing on free speech

*Practical tips and content moderation strategies from industry veterans
