In the traditional world of EDW, ETL pipelines are a troublesome bottleneck when preparing data for use in the data warehouse. ETL pipelines are notoriously expensive and brittle, so as companies move to Hadoop they look forward to getting rid of the ETL infrastructure.
But is it that simple? Some companies are finding that in order to move data between clusters for backup or aggregation purposes, they are building systems that look an awful lot like ETL.
Join us for a live webinar featuring Dr. Jim Metzler, Distinguished Research Fellow at Ashton Metzler & Associates, as he discusses the future of the WAN and why now is the time to rethink the architecture in order to evolve/accelerate your business.
Why take the traditional approach to branch office expansion by relying on providers that can’t meet the urgency of your business needs? A new era has come where complexity, cost, flexibility and time-to-market are no longer a hurdle. Welcome to the world of the Software-Defined WAN.
Join this webinar featuring Jim Metzler, industry specialist to discover:
•Why it’s time to re-architect your WAN
•How today’s WAN infrastructure is failing IT
•New market dynamics that the traditional WAN cannot support

For the Data Scientist, Data Science is complex; for the average business user it is a mystical art form that promises a lot, but often under delivers against expectation. For many established companies the result of this has been a lack of investment in an area that is, for others, quickly becoming an area of competitive advantage.
Helping the business understand the value of Big Data and Analytics, whilst also helping translate their business requirements and expectations, is a critical foundational step of the Data Analytics Lifecycle that can lead to greater investment from the business and greater profit for the organization. By way of customer examples, this presentation discusses the importance of engaging the business early and the importance of being able to tell an engaging story about the ‘Art of the Possible’.

Financial advisors espouse that proper asset allocation during times of market volatility can help us sleep better. There is a parallel in the IT world. With volatility driven by technology advancement, virtual & cloud environments, and consumer demand for the newest applications and hardware, a good night’s sleep for an Asset Manager requires properly managed and optimally allocated hardware and software assets in a constantly changing environment.
This session explores this intimidating world, common pitfalls, prescriptive actions and what the latest technology can do to make sure your assets, licenses and infrastructure are optimally aligned to drive wealth in IT…and let the Asset Manager sleep well without the fear of negative audit findings and exorbitant fines.
A movement is underway. Businesses are awakening to a new era of the digital enterprise, requiring companies to find new ways of delivering their services built for the digital era. Success in this new era requires a digital industrialization strategy in which datacenters become the core asset of the business enabling a transformation from an infrastructure that is tightly coupled with the business to a modern infrastructure that enables any business.
Digital industrialization is a continuous cycle that organizations can use to turn IT infrastructure from a cost into an asset by standardizing on one set of technologies and economics across facilities, hardware, software, and operations; consolidating datacenters; abstracting functionality; automating operations and governing it all to ensure security, integrity, and compliance.
This presentation will go through why digital industrialization is needed, what the benefits are and how the Ericsson Cloud portfolio facilitates it.

This session will demonstrate and discuss how to upgrade a running Ubuntu OpenStack cloud from Kilo to Liberty with little or no disruption to running workloads. Lots of real-world experience has made this possible, come and see how it's done!
James Page Technical Architect, Ubuntu OpenStack Team
Watch a live demonstration of running real workloads on OpenStack in containers and in KVM to compare performance. See how to deploy pure-container OpenStack for yourself. This presentation covers the pure-container hypervisor, LXD, and its integration with OpenStack Nova, enabling you to run an entire cloud with container-only guests for maximum performance.
Big data solutions involve many technologies working together. Whether it’s collection, analysis, or action, all of those components must be configured, their relationships defined, and deployed. In today’s dynamic data environment, the deployment is bound to change, need to be updated, or replicated. You need an infrastructure and tool set that keep your focus on the data. Flexibility in big data infrastructure automation, and examples of use cases are discussed in detail in this webinar.
