Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer at ZaloniRecorded: Jan 16 201950 mins
How does your organization collaborate with data? Aligning data management tasks across any size organization can be a challenge. This can be attributed to a lack of transparent data access, lack of big data skills, or antiquated toolsets that do not enable shared metadata for clear lineage of the data. Regardless of the reason, the results are slow, rigid decision-making processes.
While modernizing your data architecture for more agility can seem overwhelming, with an integrated platform that enhances collaboration, organizations can reap the benefits of quality data that is well understood. The data platform should provide users with the ability to fully understand all aspects of the data with a simple, unified user interface where the business and IT can define, transform and provision the data. All while providing right-sized governance for access, security and auditability.
Join Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer with Zaloni, as he tackles modernizing your data platform and explains how your organization can expand collaborative practices with the Zaloni Data Platform.
By the end of the presentation, you’ll be able to answer these questions:
- Why is a data catalog important?
- What do I need to know about data quality?
- How does self-service play a role in the data strategy?

IT leaders look to technology as a business differentiator and rely on it to foster innovation. Enterprises have discovered that hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) can be the foundation of a modern, cloud-like datacenter.

Paul Westcott, Product Director for Compliance & Supply and Neil Isherwood, Due Diligence Subject Matter ExpertRecorded: Dec 17 201861 mins
The rise of technology within the Customer Due Diligence space is evident. There has been a significant influx of ‘Regtech’ or ‘Fintech’ businesses offering innovative software solutions to age old CDD problems. Moreover, the constant claims that Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Automation can improve the CDD landscape are impossible to ignore. In this webinar we will discuss what digital means for CDD professionals operationally, and for their place in the organisation, and will explore the assumption that systems will do all the heavy lifting for you. Additionally, we will interrogate the view that automation and machine learning, or both, truly means less effort for the compliance professional.
As more CDD problems are framed as potential ones that can be solved through new technology, this webinar will outline what support frameworks are needed to sit alongside the technology for it to be successfully implemented and achieve the goals it was set out to deliver, and ultimately how this transformation will require highly skilled Compliance experts to adapt to new skills as their roles change.

By 2020, 90 percent of businesses will have moved to a hybrid cloud infrastructure, seizing both the competitive advantages of digital evolution -- and the economic and strategic benefits of maintaining legacy applications on premises. But once your data moves outside your private architecture, you're facing a new world of potential attacks and security breaches that your current security practices just can't match.
Just for starters, not only will you need to implement effective RBAC to lower risk of unauthorized access and enforce mandatory multi-factor authentication, you'll also have to tap into the power of automation to validate security compliance baselines, detect unauthorized cloud config changes, and power self-healing infrastructure. Additionally, application-centric security is a must, with real-time visibility into application dependencies and performance metrics, plus an automatic micro-segmented security policy enforcement, and more.

Artificial intelligence can increase your lead and appointments by fifty percent, reduce costs by 40 to 60 percent, and and cut call time by 60 to 70 percent. It can ensure a rep’s time is all impact, all the time, by automating tasks and slashing what’s essentially downtime by 40 percent — and even initiate contact with leads, qualify them, follow up, and sustain them. Leaving sales reps the time and the primed field to close the deal.

Customer experience (CX) and Master Data Management (MDM) must go hand in hand. Both of these themes involves multiple business units and digital environments within your enterprise and in the wider business ecosystem, where your enterprise operates. To be successful within customer experience in the digital era you need classic master data outcomes as a 360-degree view of customers as well as complete and consistent product information. You also need to combine your customer data and your product data to get to the right level of personalization. Furthermore, you need to able to make sense of internal and external big data sources and relate those to your prospective and existing customers and the products they have an interest in.

It’s do or die time: According to Gartner, the global business value from AI leapt by 70 percent last year, to $1.2 trillion, and it will triple to $3.9 trillion in 2022. So enterprises interested in getting on the AI train should jump now -- before you lose some major competitive advantages.
Of course, the biggest challenge for enterprise companies is figuring out the build versus buy question. There’s the build-in-house model of AI implementation, with open-source toolkits and expensive, but essential new hires. The number of startups offering full-service consultation, with set-up and service is proliferating, but who do you choose, and what do you pay for? And somewhere in between those options there’s the artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) approach — and again, the field of vendors is crowded with options.
There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer — but there are experts with real insight into how to identify your business needs, and where to get started implementing AI in the most cost-effective, profitable way possible for your enterprise. To get up front and personal with pros in the trenches now, register now for this VB Live event!
*How to identify your AI needs
*How to identify your decision criteria
*The pros and cons of build and buy, and the best situations for each
*How to get a handle on the true costs of both build and buy
