  • How to Bring BI into the Big Data World
    How to Bring BI into the Big Data World Claudia Imhoff, renowned analyst & Founder - Boulder BI Brain Trust and Ajay Anand, VP Products & Marketing - Kyvos Insights Recorded: May 25 2018 63 mins
    Business intelligence (BI) has been at the forefront of business decision-making for more than two decades. Then along came Big Data and it was thought that traditional BI technologies could never handle the volumes and performance issues associated with this unusual source of data.

    So what do you do? Cast aside this critical form of analysis? Hardly a good answer. The better answer is to look for BI technologies that can keep up with Big Data, provide the same level of performance regardless of the volume or velocity of the data being analyzed, yet give the BI-savvy business users the familiar interface and multi-dimensionality they have come to know and love.

    This webinar will present the findings from a recent survey of Big Data and the challenges and value many organizations have received from their implementations. In addition, the survey will supply a fascinating look into what Big Data technologies are most commonly used, the types of workloads supported, the most important capabilities for these platforms, the value and operational insights derived from the analytics performed in the environment, and the common use cases.

    Attendees will also learn about a new BI technology built to handle Big Data queries with superior levels of scalability, performance and support for concurrent users. BI on Big Data platforms enables organizations to provide self-service and interactive on big data for all of their users across the enterprise.

    Yes, now you CAN have BI on Big Data platforms!
  • Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum
    Simplified Machine Learning, Text, and Graph Analytics with Pivotal Greenplum Bob Glithero, PMM, Pivotal and James Curtis Senior Analyst, 451 Research Recorded: May 24 2018 56 mins
    Data is at the center of digital transformation; using data to drive action is how transformation happens. But data is messy, and it’s everywhere. It’s in the cloud and on-premises. It’s in different types and formats. By the time all this data is moved, consolidated, and cleansed, it can take weeks to build a predictive model.

    Even with data lakes, efficiently integrating multi-structured data from different data sources and streams is a major challenge. Enterprises struggle with a stew of data integration tools, application integration middleware, and various data quality and master data management software. How can we simplify this complexity to accelerate and de-risk analytic projects?

    The data warehouse—once seen as only for traditional business intelligence applications — has learned new tricks. Join James Curtis from 451 Research and Pivotal’s Bob Glithero for an interactive discussion about the modern analytic data warehouse. In this webinar, we’ll share insights such as:

    - Why after much experimentation with other architectures such as data lakes, the data warehouse has reemerged as the platform for integrated operational analytics

    - How consolidating structured and unstructured data in one environment—including text, graph, and geospatial data—makes in-database, highly parallel, analytics practical

    - How bringing open-source machine learning, graph, and statistical methods to data accelerates analytical projects

    - How open-source contributions from a vibrant community of Postgres developers reduces adoption risk and accelerates innovation

    We thank you in advance for joining us.

    Webinar 2: Pillar 2: Sales Process

    Like anything else, sales is a process. Following the process helps to maintain quality and prevents you from making the old age mistake of ‘selling too soon’. You will never sell to everyone, even Apple haven’t figure out how to do that, but if you know the sales process you will certainly sell to a lot more. I genuinely believe when delivered correctly, sales and customer service are exactly the same thing. That’s why, my sales process shows you how providing great customer service can help you seal the deal.

  • Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA)
    Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (EMEA) Rick van der Lans, Independent Business Intelligence Analyst and Lakshmi Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Denodo May 30 2018 8:30 am UTC 45 mins
    Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically
    copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
    So, what’s the solution?
    A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

    Attend this session to learn:

    • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
    • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
    • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.

    Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.

  • How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data
    How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data Pari Datta, Senior innovation and research consultant at Cambridge Design Partnership Jun 13 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer.

    Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real.

    R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies.

    This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.

    Please note: Registrants details will be shared with the presenter after the webinar.
  • Big Content Era: IDC Content Marketing and Sales Enablement Briefing
    Big Content Era: IDC Content Marketing and Sales Enablement Briefing Joshua Budd, AVP Consulting, IDC CEMA Jun 14 2018 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Half of B2B buyers decide on whether or not to purchase available content before they meet a sales representative.
    At the same time, communication with customers is increasingly moving to online channels, and the main challenge of the day is not only generating great marketing content but generating high-quality content in general. IDC's recent survey shows that today's marketing teams need to produce ten times more content more than ever before. This is not the result of quantitative priority strategies but rather arises from the need to meet the rising demand for personalized interaction in the growing number of digital communication channels and throughout the lifecycle of the business relationship.

    Join our webinar with Joshua Budd, IDC's associate vice president for consulting in Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (CEMA), while he presents how provocative, fact-based content can make a difference and how to lay the groundwork before the customer is approached by your sales team.

    We will try to answer the following questions:
    • What makes content marketing so effective?
    • Is content really "king" or is this just a buzz term?
    • Can fact-based messaging reliably help convince not only your customers but also your sales team?
    • How can I create a content plan that is useful for various customers’ touchpoints?

    We look forward to welcoming you into the discussion!

  • Broadening patent claims: Lessons from automotive and consumer goods
    Broadening patent claims: Lessons from automotive and consumer goods Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & CTO of Lycoworks Jun 20 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    With innovation budgets increasing each year and R&D efficiency decreasing in the western world, many companies are starting to get creative with how they structure and what claims they include in a patent. This is not only to give their technology better protection but to also increase the value of their claims.

    One of the methods that is becoming prevalent in the Automotive and Consumer Good Industries is the use of Human Experience factors in a patent. By link your technology to the User Experience provided by it. This is useful when filing in crowded patent spaces, enabling broader protection at lower cost than a "picket fence" IP strategy.

    Jason Lye (IAM 300 Strategist), and Founder of Lyco Works, who has used this technique with many of his clients will be exploring some of these patents and how to make the most out of User Experience in this webinar.
