  • A Framework to turn IoT Technology into Operational Capability for Mining
    A Framework to turn IoT Technology into Operational Capability for Mining Pieter van Schalkwyk, CEO, XMPro Recorded: Jul 17 2018 58 mins
    Digital Transformation through IoT that focuses on digital exploration, agile mining operations, connected assets, and next gen safety brings significant benefits to mining companies and mining technology suppliers alike. Mining organizations that don’t embark on IoT-enabled Digital Transformation will find it more challenging to compete in uncertain resources cycle. With more than 80% of IoT projects not progressing beyond POC stages according to Gartner, there is a disconnect between IoT technology and IoT capabilities.

    This stems from a technology-centric approach to IoT that focus on connected “things” and less on the expected business outcomes. A July 2017 McKinsey study found that 70% of their respondents identified “integrating IoT solutions into existing business workflows” as a capability gap. The IoT challenge that mining companies now face is less of a technology problem and more of a business process problem.

    This webinar presents a framework that provides the business architecture for using IoT that connects IoT technology to operational capability and business outcomes. The I2OC framework focus on aligning IoT technology with benefits such as increased asset availability, reduced downtime, reduced costs, increased efficiencies, and improve safety and governance. Pieter uses a practical mining example to present the I2OC framework.

  • The CIO’s Top 10 Strategic Security Metrics
    The CIO’s Top 10 Strategic Security Metrics Pete Lindstrom Recorded: Jul 13 2018 27 mins
    No enterprise can be completely secure, and in the uncertainty that necessarily permeates the landscape, others will find fault. This web conference provides a way for CIOs to use proven scientific and economic principles to enhance their organizations’ security position. Simply put, the most effective security programs reduce the most risk with the least resources; therefore, an organization must find a way to measure the efficacy of its security program to understand how much of the risk it is reducing after it applies security controls. With the appropriate key risk indicator (KRI) data collected, organizations can determine which initiatives are ultimately the most useful in their security program.
  • A 3 step Framework for a Product Manager to Prioritize in a Complex Ecosystem
    A 3 step Framework for a Product Manager to Prioritize in a Complex Ecosystem Sundar Balasubramanian, Director of Product Management at Intuit Recorded: Jul 13 2018 46 mins
    A Product Manager has the unenviable task of prioritization, balancing several short and long-term objectives to arrive at the what and when for the product team. For an early stage product, stack ranking priorities might be sufficient. For a mature product, the challenge is often deciding what not to focus on at any given time because several areas will need at least a minimum level of investment to continue to serve your customers and stay competitive. The right prioritization framework, therefore, depends on the factors such as maturity of the product, organization and competitive environment.

  • Customer Success: How do you enable the mindset and infuse the culture?
    Customer Success: How do you enable the mindset and infuse the culture? Shreesha Ramdas | CEO at STRIKEDECK Jul 31 2018 9:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Customer success isn't just about a title, department, or jumping into an account manager role. It is a lifestyle. It should flow through the veins, and ooze out every pore. From the external, it appears that it comes from jumping on top of tasks and engaging with customers, but true CSM's feed their entire lives not just into their assigned customers or company customers, but every customer that they have an interaction with. This includes walking into Starbucks and holding the door open for that person behind you, or picking up the paper towels on the floor in the bathroom. Demonstrating that customer success can happen everywhere you go. It can go unappreciated, but this is also where it can catch on. Your co-workers, potential customers, and perhaps even the occasional current customer are watching. The mentality of being there to serve others is a culture shift which can catch people off guard and see the difference as to why they selected you as their vendor. So the next time you visit Starbucks, don't just walk in, but hold the door and give that person a huge high five!

However, to benefit from the power of pipelines, their users need to have a freedom to choose and experiment with any machine learning algorithm or library.

    Therefore, we developed Sparkling Water that embeds H2O machine learning library of advanced algorithms into the Spark ecosystem and exposes them via pipeline API. Furthermore, the algorithms benefit from H2O MOJOs – Model Object Optimized – a powerful concept shared across entire H2O platform to store and exchange models. The MOJOs are designed for effective model deployment with focus on scoring speed, traceability, exchangeability, and backward compatibility. In this talk we will explain the architecture of Sparkling Water with focus on integration into the Spark pipelines and MOJOs.

    We’ll demonstrate creation of pipelines integrating H2O machine learning models and their deployments using Scala or Python. Furthermore, we will show how to utilize pre-trained model MOJOs with Spark pipelines.
  • Scaling Agile with SAFe and Metronome
    Scaling Agile with SAFe and Metronome Sudi Sankavaram Aug 2 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Teams have been adopting and practicing Agile for years. Scrum and Kanban are two popular approaches used by agile teams to plan and iterate their development cycles. While these approaches have transformed software development for individual teams, they lack the constructs needed to synchronize multiple teams, provide Companies with a mechanism to adapt to change, and deliver enterprise software and systems in the shortest sustainable lead time. The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) leverages Agile practices and Lean product development to coordinate planning and delivery for multiple agile teams. This approach to scaling agile has led to the following benefits:

    · Increase in solution quality

    · Increase in productivity

    · Increased employee engagement

    · Faster time to market

    · Better predictability

    · Improved transparency



    Join Radus Software for a 45 minute webinar to discuss scaling agile.

    Using sponsored research as a pathway to licensing early stage technologies Laura Schoppe, President and Owner of Fuentek Aug 8 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Patent licensing negotiations have an extremely high fail rate- this can be down to unfavourable licensing terms or weak patent portfolios. One of the ways universities and industry are trying to bridge the gap between innovation and commercialisation is by working together much earlier.

    From a university standpoint, their research can be tailored to specific industry needs, as well as having research costs covered. Through the eyes of industry, they can get their hands on the latest research developments, and attract the brightest and talented individuals to their businesses.

    Laura Schoppe, President and Founder of Fuentek, who has years experience helping TTO's improve their chances of commercalisation will be joining us to discuss:

    - How to start sourcing strategic sponsorship deals
