  • Application of Event Stream Processing: Data Mining the 2017 Boston Marathon
    Application of Event Stream Processing: Data Mining the 2017 Boston Marathon Michael Onwi and Devin Pearson, Kennesaw State University Recorded: Jan 3 2018 26 mins
    The ability to analyze high-velocity data in motion is increasingly of interest to organizations and civic leaders, enabling access to real time information for decision makers through event stream processing. This is imperative not only in sensor driven industries like health care and manufacturing, but also for large scale public events with issues related to public safety, transportation and overall experience for tourists and residents. The Center for Statistics and Analytical Research at Kennesaw State University used SAS® Event Stream Processing to analyze tweets from the 2017 Boston Marathon and determine topics, patterns and trends to provide insight for future large scale events. Attributes of interest from each tweet such as contents, timestamps and locations were identified and captured. The output was then filtered by US time zones. Two counter windows, global and EST (where the Marathon was held), were used to count the number of incoming tweets in a 10 second sliding window. The information was then displayed on a dashboard. The results were analyzed over the timeline of the marathon to correlate Twitter activity to the event itself. In addition, key topics were analyzed to determine propensity for co-presence, such as pain+Advil.

    The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rule looms and will take affect in May 2018, but only a third of companies are on track to be compliant by the due date. GDPR is the most significant change in data privacy regulation in more than 20 years. It represents an extraordinary shift in the way businesses will be expected to operate when they gather, process, maintain, and protect customer data. Any organization that retains information of EU citizens must be in compliance or face huge fines of up to 4% of worldwide turnover.

    In this webinar series you will hear from industry experts facing the same challenges you face and find out how they're meeting and surpassing critical implementation check points, and you will learn what actions other organisations are taking preparation for data protection – not only for GDPR, but for long-term data protection.
  • Top Global Banks Innovating to Keep Pace with Fintech Companies
    Top Global Banks Innovating to Keep Pace with Fintech Companies Manoj Menon(Snr Partner & MD), Shailendra Soni (Principal Consultant), Shuvro Mainuddin (Consulting Analyst) Jan 31 2018 6:30 am UTC 60 mins
    New disruptive technologies are set to impact the global banking sector, forcing banks to redefine and transform themselves to survive in today's competitive market. The world's top banks, such as J.P. Morgan and Bank of America, have responded by forming digital transformation strategies to safeguard their existing market and venture into new ones. Fintech companies that began by targeting niche markets are now addressing the needs of a larger audience and directly competing against global banks. They have used technology to expedite the overall process and cut customer onboarding from a few days to a few minutes. While banks are open to working with Fintech companies, not all Fintech companies want to work with banks; they want to address customer pain points and deliver top-notch services and products at a fraction of the cost charged by banks and traditional financial services companies.
