  • 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.

  • Protect your SAP system with improved governance of exchange rate & market data
    Protect your SAP system with improved governance of exchange rate & market data Dirk Neumann, Co-Founder, BRISKEN LLC Recorded: Dec 13 2017 60 mins
    What You'll Learn

    The increasingly disparate market data universe can lead to errors and inconsistencies in your exchange rates and market data — issues that can cause significant problems once the market data is loaded into your SAP system. So how do you prevent these problems? How do you ensure the accuracy of this data before it enters your system landscape? SAP customers can reduce these risks by using automated market data governance with data validation and anomaly detection, and by implementing a central market data repository to avoid reporting and consolidation issues.

    Attend this webinar and find out how to easily source market data — including foreign exchange rates, interest rates, security prices, and volatilities — from multiple providers, such as Reuters, Bloomberg, and OANDA, without any programming, and then distribute that data across your entire system landscape, including both SAP and non-SAP systems, on an automated schedule. You will learn how to:

    • Set up a trusted central market data repository
    • Govern your data processes
    • Detect data anomalies
    • Perform a quality check on your exchange rate and market data before committing it to your system
    • Personalize the way you source your market data and map it into your system landscape
  • How to Think Systematically About Tone for Your Content
    How to Think Systematically About Tone for Your Content Pierre Gagnier, ADP Recorded: Dec 12 2017 57 mins
    Are you thinking about incorporating tone into your content strategy? If so, you've probably seen how confusing this topic can be.

    We know, because we are human beings, that language can misfire. Tone is where understanding and emotion come together – and sometimes that’s messy.

    Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Pierre Gagnier, Content Strategist at ADP Innovation Lab, for this free, one-hour webinar. Pierre will show you how a team of researchers at ADP were able to tame some of the trickiness of tone and measure its impact. What they learned will help you to make sense of tone and change it from a source of risk into a tool for creating effective content.

    Attendees will learn about 1) a simple, workable set of definitions that you can use to promote shared understanding among stakeholders of what tone is; 2) A framework for identifying and applying tone attributes so that you can create a foundation for consistent practice, and 3) Some typical factors that will help you to see how tone can go awry and will help you create your own risk factors.

    ABOUT THE PRESENTER

    Pierre Gagnier is a content strategist at ADP's Innovation Lab in New York. He works extensively with user experience researchers to help ADP web and mobile product teams align their content strategies consistently with users' realities.

  • Copywriting to Content Design: Creating Content That Delights
    Copywriting to Content Design: Creating Content That Delights Padma Gillen, Scroll UK Recorded: Dec 12 2017 57 mins
    In 2013, GOV UK, the government services website for the United Kingdom, won the prestigious D&AD Black Pencil for its contribution to moving content forward as a design discipline. Since then GOV UK has been name-checked and modeled around the world as *the* way to do public sector content. And yet, aside from those who are really “in the know,” the practice of content design is still little known outside of government content circles. And inside of government, many people talk about it, but not many know how to do it well.

    Join Paul Perrotta, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guest, Padma Gillen, of Scroll UK, for this free, one-hour webinar. Formerly Head of Content Design for the UK's Government Digital Service, Padma has been at the heart of this emerging discipline since its earliest days. He now teaches others how to do it, and helps organizations rebuild their entire content function around the principles of user needs, designing with data and agile content production.

    In this webinar, Padma will introduce you to these principles and explain how to incorporate them into your approach. Attendees will learn how to place the needs of users at the heart of your content strategy, apply agile methods to content production, and learn to understand the governance models needed to improve your content significantly.
  • Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Modeling Microcontent Structure for DITA
    Enabling Content in Chatbots and AI: Modeling Microcontent Structure for DITA Steve Manning, Precision Content Recorded: Dec 12 2017 58 mins
    We’ve all heard about the benefits of content modeling and structured content for technical information. We’ve implemented DITA or other topic-based strategies to break content into smaller blocks to manage and publish, but topics are not small enough.

    But the addition of Bots, voice-enabled interfaces, and AI means we must change the way we structure content. We are moving from a broadcast style of communication – publish and hope for the best – to a more conversational style of communication. More question and answer. This imposes requirements on the content models you need to create if you want to talk to the Bots. We must be more granular in our models. We need to implement Microcontent.

    Join Val Swisher, sitting in for Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and her special guest, Steve Manning of Precision Content, for this webinar. Steve will discuss how new technology will change the way we approach content and the topic-based approach to deliver what you need for the new technology challenges. Steve will work through a different approach to the content that focuses you more on reader outcomes how that affects your content models. Attendees will learn how deep into their content then need to model to get the most from chatbots, voice-enabled systems, and ultimately AI.

    Attendees will also learn 1) Why traditional topic-based DITA is not granular enough for the future; 2) How microcontent is a better approach to future-proof your content, and 3) How to use user outcomes to drive models and granularity.

  • SciVal API :: What is it & how can I use it?
    SciVal API :: What is it & how can I use it? Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) and Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) Recorded: Dec 7 2017 32 mins
    The SciVal API allows you to programmatically retrieve metrics for use in your own software applications.

    Join Martin Edling Andersson (Senior SciVal Product Manager) & Joe Riess (Principal Software Engineer) for an introduction to the new SciVal API, what it is, where it can be accessed and how it can be utilized. Joe, who built the SciVal API, will give a demonstration of how you can create a small application using the SciVal API and Scopus APIs together.

    An API stands for Application Programming Interface, and it provides a way for programs to talk to one another. The SciVal API gives access to a comprehensive basket of metrics for researchers (Scopus Author profiles) and all 8,500+ institutions available in SciVal.

    The API returns data machine-readable format that enables software, rather than humans using the scival.com platform, to use the data. Consequently, this allows developers to write programs that automatically extract metrics from SciVal periodically, and use that data in their Institutional Repository systems, websites and for richer visualizations in tools like Tableau.

    The 5-Step Approach to Forming a Successful, Winning Team Andrew Lawless, Rockant, Inc. Jan 23 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Leading teams is hard. One single team member can bring you down - from halting your improvement plans to a complete breakdown of key operating functions and alienation of customers. Because of that, the answers to the question of whom to hire and whom to keep are vital when automation shrinks your workforce.

    The equation involves many make-or-break variables, including the balance of skills and experience, mix of styles, personalities, and relationships, and diversity of natural talents and strengths. To further complicate things, each variable must also be consistent with the executive agenda as well as the team lead’s personal leadership style and strengths profile.

    In this webinar, Andrew Lawless will share the best-working tools and strategies from 20 years of transforming teams with the goal of teaching you about a five-step approach to transforming your team.

    This webinar is for you if you are dealing with team members who are smart, capable, and competent, but struggle to agree with your changes, wrestle with automation, or fail to meet new job requirements. You will learn about methodologies that help you understand which team members to keep, coach, or transition.

    TAKEAWAYS

    1. Understand each team member’s view of the world
    2. Show a different scenario or reality
    3. Disrupt counter-productive behavior
    4. Attract and keep the right talent

    Brands have access to terabytes more customer data than they did just a few years ago, but most organizations are using only 10% of what they collect — and are unsure how to turn data into sophisticated, personalized cross-channel marketing.

    That kind of high-touch, multichannel engagement is within every brand’s reach, but it requires putting AI in the driver’s seat. Yet, the hype-cycle that surrounds AI-powered marketing leaves many companies wondering what’s truth, what’s fiction — and most importantly, how to even start applying it for notable returns.

    Join Forrester, VentureBeat, and Blueshift in this frank discussion of AI, customer data, and cross-channel marketing. You’ll walk away with a solid understanding of what it takes to fully integrate customer data and AI into your cross-channel marketing.

    In this webinar you’ll:

    * Understand the power of the customer data you have at your fingertips
    * Learn how to leverage data to drive personalized, cross-channel marketing
    * Discover how AI can transform your marketing strategy

  • Remote Production: Game changer for sports broadcasting
    Remote Production: Game changer for sports broadcasting IBC365 | Tata Communications | VISTA Worldlink Jan 25 2018 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Join IBC365 and Tata Communications on Thursday 25 January at 1pm GMT to explore how remote production is changing the way sports broadcasters operate.

    Remote production gives broadcasters the ability to produce live broadcasts at a distance from the actual event, by sending raw camera feeds, audio and equipment control over a telecom infrastructure to a central studio facility.

    It helps to generate high volume of sports content economically, thereby improving productivity and efficiency for sports broadcasters.

    Today, for any live event, about 30-40 people travel to each location with kit and other equipment to produce the broadcast feed at the venue. This is not only expensive but also logistically a nightmare.

    By producing feeds remotely at a central location only a handful of camera crew would have to travel while the technical director, commentator and other key crew members can finalise production at a central location.

    In this webinar we explore how broadcasters and production companies can overcome any technical and operational challenges to embrace the benefits of remote production.

    Jeremy Dujardin, CTO, Media Services, Tata Communications
    Dhaval Ponda, Global Sales Head, Media Services, Tata Communications

    Top Global Banks Innovating to Keep Pace with Fintech Companies Manoj Menon(Snr Partner & MD), Shailendra Soni (Principal Consultant), Shuvro Mainuddin (Consulting Analyst) Jan 31 2018 6:30 am UTC 60 mins
    New disruptive technologies are set to impact the global banking sector, forcing banks to redefine and transform themselves to survive in today's competitive market. The world's top banks, such as J.P. Morgan and Bank of America, have responded by forming digital transformation strategies to safeguard their existing market and venture into new ones. Fintech companies that began by targeting niche markets are now addressing the needs of a larger audience and directly competing against global banks. They have used technology to expedite the overall process and cut customer onboarding from a few days to a few minutes. While banks are open to working with Fintech companies, not all Fintech companies want to work with banks; they want to address customer pain points and deliver top-notch services and products at a fraction of the cost charged by banks and traditional financial services companies.
