The solutions we will cover will take into account being highly fault-tolerant, mindful of high performance, and assurance that your data will be available when you need it.
Dr. Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Strategic Innovation Group, Booz Allen Hamilton
Data preparation is occasionally referred to as data plumbing, suggesting that it is dirty grunge work that is an unglamorous necessity. We will see how this point of view misses entirely the discovery potential, value, and “thrill of the chase” that data preparation can offer. Data prep includes the all important first step in any analytics project: “Know Thy Data” (which is one of the fundamental principles of data science). We discuss data profiling, data transformations and normalization, feature selection and engineering, and more data prep approaches that empower you to begin learning from your data right out of the “starting gate” on your analytics project. Learning from Data (i.e., data science) doesn’t begin after data prep, but right from the start.

With cloud computing now becoming a mainstream technology for most companies, new opportunities have emerged for cloud and hosting providers that extend beyond their traditional infrastructure-focused businesses. The most interesting changes in cloud infrastructure, applications and services are yet to come.
A key characteristic of Cloud 2.0 is that 70% of the opportunity is beyond infrastructure hosting, with application, managed and security services demand growing from enterprises. To capture this providers must continue to evolve their offerings to meet the increasingly complex demands of customers who are now in the driver's seat. These customers need not only infrastructure, but also wrap-around services and support that they have come to expect from their corporate IT departments.
During this data-driven discussion you will learn:
- What Cloud 2.0 means for your business
- Cloud adoption trends
- How to innovate without risk
- Who are the primary decision makers
- How customers choose a service provider and what requirements are important to them
- Where customers allocate their budgets
Dave Farley, independent software developer and consultant, and founder and director of Continuous Delivery Ltd.,
Many people working in software development spend their careers without seeing what good looks like. Our history is littered with inefficient processes creating poor quality output, too late to capitalise on the expected business value. How have we got to this state? How do we get past it? What does good really look like?
Continuous Delivery changes the economics of software development, find out how and why.
DevOps methods enable teams to ship software more quickly and frequently but that advantage is negated unless the reliability and sustainability practices of operations teams are included throughout planning and execution. Too many organizations that rapidly ‘sheep dip’ development teams in Agile practices that focus at the team level ignore the implications that arise at production scale. Join this exclusive webinar with Dan North of DNA who will discuss how enterprise IT teams can enable collaboration without coercion. Attendees will learn how optimizations can be leveraged across both dev and ops teams so that the constraints that arise in stovepiped approaches are avoided.
