  • 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 big data analytics market has undergone continuous transformation since its’ inception and continued in 2017 with new innovations and a strong move to the cloud.

    How B2C Marketers are Sharpening Their Targeting with Professional Data Meredith Berninger, Senior Account Director, Data Partnerships at LiveRamp and Orlando Perez, Sr Director, Dun & Bradstreet Recorded: Dec 13 2017 32 mins
    Truth: Your customers’ professional attributes are just as important as their non-professional attributes. Career paths speak to who a person is - to their values and interests. When you know what someone does for a living or the company they work for, you have a better idea of their intentions and life trajectory. But these consumer insights are often forgotten when the marketing campaign is built and executed, which leaves money on the table.

    If you’re a data-driven marketer who is already using Household Income for targeting or a marketing leader who is ready to uplevel your targeting strategy, join LiveRamp and Dun & Bradstreet in a 30-minute webinar where you’ll learn:

  • Using Object Storage to Solve Unstructured Data Problems
    Using Object Storage to Solve Unstructured Data Problems Steven Hill 451 Research, Stefaan Vervaet WD, Molly Presley Quantum Jan 25 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Business is experiencing an increased dependence on unstructured data, such as complex business documents, work products and large media files. This presents a new and growing set of challenges for IT when it comes to preserving, protecting, monitoring and managing unstructured data at scale; and it’s a problem that affects enterprises and service providers alike. We believe that object storage’s massive scalability and rich metadata capabilities supports the collection of the extended information about the data itself—in the form of metadata—to provide customizable and specific reference points for identifying the contents and automating the management of unstructured data at storage-level throughout its entire lifecycle. To document these challenges, 451 Research – in cooperation with Western Digital’s HGST division – has developed and fielded an annual survey that reaches out to a vetted group of 100 enterprise and 100 service provider customers to evaluate the current nature of the unstructured data problem. This program looks to better establish market perceptions about modern object storage, explore current use cases, and outline customer expectations based on responses to our 2017 poll.

    Incorporating location intelligence into digital strategies to engage consumers in real time, increase brand loyalty and provide actionable data will be more critical in 2018 than ever before.

    Using cutting edge location data, Deloitte was able to actively engage fans in an interactive touchscreen experience at a large-scale sporting event. These enhanced insights into the fan experience included crowd density at various locations within the venue, the best spots for spectators to view the action, the movement of fans relative to players, and more.

    In this case, location intelligence provided insight into consumer engagement via foot traffic patterns, location visits, and frequency analysis to help brands deliver dynamic user experiences, better understand their customers and prospects, and boost consumer engagement and delight.
