  • Hunting Criminals with Hybrid Analytics, Semi-supervised Learning, & Feedback
    Hunting Criminals with Hybrid Analytics, Semi-supervised Learning, & Feedback David Talby, CTO, Atigeo Recorded: Aug 23 2017 62 mins
    Fraud detection is a classic adversarial analytics challenge: As soon as an automated system successfully learns to stop one scheme, fraudsters move on to attack another way. Each scheme requires looking for different signals (i.e. features) to catch; is relatively rare (one in millions for finance or e-commerce); and may take months to investigate a single case (in healthcare or tax, for example) – making quality training data scarce.

    This talk will cover a code walk-through, the key lessons learned while building such real-world software systems over the past few years. We'll look for fraud signals in public email datasets, using IPython and popular open-source libraries (scikit-learn, statsmodel, nltk, etc.) for data science and Apache Spark as the compute engine for scalable parallel processing.

    David will iteratively build a machine-learned hybrid model – combining features from different data sources and algorithmic approaches, to catch diverse aspects of suspect behavior:

    - Natural language processing: finding keywords in relevant context within unstructured text
    - Statistical NLP: sentiment analysis via supervised machine learning
    - Time series analysis: understanding daily/weekly cycles and changes in habitual behavior
    - Graph analysis: finding actions outside the usual or expected network of people
    - Heuristic rules: finding suspect actions based on past schemes or external datasets
    - Topic modeling: highlighting use of keywords outside an expected context
    - Anomaly detection: Fully unsupervised ranking of unusual behavior

    Apache Spark is used to run these models at scale – in batch mode for model training and with Spark Streaming for production use. We’ll discuss the data model, computation, and feedback workflows, as well as some tools and libraries built on top of the open-source components to enable faster experimentation, optimization, and productization of the models.

    Technical Deep Dive: Building a Modern Portal For Your Digital Workforce Omar ElNaggar, Sr. Product Manager at Sapho, Natalie Lambert, VP of Marketing at Sapho Recorded: Aug 23 2017 37 mins
    Do your employees struggle to access and analyze information that sits across multiple systems? Do they delay completing tasks that require they login to yet another system? Employees are now pushing back against legacy systems – both on-premises and SaaS – and demanding more modern applications to complete their work. Unfortunately, you have spent millions of dollars on software and replacing them is not an option. The question: how do you meet employee expectations for more user-friendly tools without costly upgrades or throwing out your existing systems? Answer: a modern portal.

    Sapho’s modern portal surfaces personalized and relevant tasks and data to employees using micro apps. Sapho micro apps are built by IT on top of your existing systems using a simple micro app builder and pre-built templates. These micro apps – available on any device, intranet, or messenger app – provide employees with proactive notifications about interesting system data, actions that need to be completed, and changes in business data that require attention. With Sapho, employees can complete work faster and make better decisions, improving their overall productivity and effectiveness.

    In this webinar, we will show you how easy it is to build a modern portal that:

    - Connects to your existing systems with pre-built connectors for systems such as SAP, Oracle, Concur, Salesforce, or ServiceNow
    - Surfaces event-driven micro apps, that you can build in just 15 minutes to deliver simplified workflows and data access
    - Is accessible by employees from any device, intranet, or messenger allowing them to complete actions and review information from anywhere

    Combat cyber fraud with security orchestration Will LaSala, Director Security Solutions, VASCO Aug 29 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Combat cyber fraud with security orchestration without slowing down your customers

    With everything in the enterprise going all digital, bypassing traditional security mechanisms in favor of instantaneous, user-convenient transactions increases the risk to the business exponentially. Accessing confidential employee files electronically, e-signing contracts, or allowing your customers to transfer money via a mobile app without cumbersome verification steps makes you and your customer prone to cyber fraud.

    So, what is a digital business to do? You can’t very well remove security completely from your strategy. And, as passwords become obsolete, users increasingly want solutions that are invisible as well as convenient.

    Security Orchestration may be the answer to the growing security concerns of your digital enterprise. Join this webcast lead by VASCO Data Security and learn how to keep your digital enterprise secure without slowing down customers or their transactions.

    Topics of discussion will include:
    •The role of Digital Trust and Orchestration in using frictionless security mechanisms such as:
    oBehavioral authentication
    oStep-up authentication for risky behavior
    oBiometric authentication including fingerprint scan or face recognition
    oReal-time monitoring

    Back to School: Migrating to the Cloud Steve Hall, CloudCheckr VP of Marketing and Jimmy Stetzel, Relus Cloud Migration Practice Director Aug 29 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The cloud is a nebulous concept, literally. Moving “to the cloud” is not as straightforward as moving a data center from San Francisco to San Jose. In that scenario, you have physical control of both locations and can assume or ensure that they use the same power outlets, Ethernet connections, roadways, loading docks... even that the door sizes are standard. Moving to the cloud is dramatically different. The good news is that hundreds of thousands of organizations have made such a move, successfully, and you can learn from their trials and tribulations.

    In this webinar, attendees will learn:
    - The decisions they have to make
    - The terminology they will need to understand
    - Advantages and disadvantages of different migration approaches

  • Creating Platform Agnostic Packages with Habitat
    Creating Platform Agnostic Packages with Habitat Nell Shamrell-Harrington, Sr. Software Development Engineer at Chef Software Aug 30 2017 5:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    One of the dreams of development is to build a software package once - and deploy it anywhere. With current open source projects, this dream is even closer than ever. Join Nell Shamrell-Harrington, Senior Software Development Engineer at Chef as she discusses how to create software packages that run (almost) anywhere with Habitat. You'll see how the same application can be run on bare metal, on a virtual machine, or in a container - with everything needed to automate that application already built into the package itself. Also learn how to build and deploy these packages with the intelligence to self-organize into topologies, without needing a central orchestrator. See how the dream of platform-agnostic and self-organizing packages is fulfilled today, and how it will evolve in the future.

    From Static Reports to Interactive Dashboards – and far beyond Andy Jordan, ProjectManagement.com and Jim Tisch, CA Product Marketing Aug 30 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    While project management, and project portfolio management (PPM) software solutions, have come a long way in recent years there is still one aspect of projects that lags far behind – reporting. Until now they have been little more than data summaries, providing little to no insight into projects and potentially misleading stakeholders and driving the wrong actions. Now things are changing. Join project management expert Andy Jordan as he explains how the integration of Business Intelligence (BI) tools with PPM solutions allows for:
    •Detailed trending and predictive analytics
    •Reliable decision support
    •Customized information summaries tailored to individual needs
    •Significant cost savings and improved chances of project success
    Don’t miss out on the opportunity to gain insight into the future of project reporting, and to learn how the future is already here. Delivered in Andy’s signature up tempo and thought provoking style, this is one webinar you don’t want to miss!

    How Openbravo boosts retail competitiveness with an optimized supply chain Maarten Tromp (Openbravo), Hari Madhavan (Promantia Global Consulting) Sep 5 2017 9:30 am UTC 60 mins
    The heightened expectations of today’s consumers are forcing retailers to revamp their supply chains to make them more efficient, deliver greater demand responsiveness and ensure the optimal placement of inventory in the supply chain. An optimized supply chain brings multiple benefits in terms of improved customer service and logistics cost, greater flexibility in matching demand and supply, and it enables retailers to improve the accuracy of their forecasts.

    In this webinar we explain how to optimize retail supply chains to better satisfy customer demands and boost business efficiency while reducing costs. We look in particular at the example of India, where the recent introduction of Goods and Sales Tax will bring major changes in the way procurement, warehousing and transportation are carried out. We describe and demonstrate some of the advanced supply chain management capabilities Openbravo has added to its product suite to help retailers revamp their supply chains and so improve competitiveness.

  • Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization
    Hybrid & Multi-cloud environments: Strategies for migration & app modernization Jay Lyman, Principal Analyst, 451 Research with Shashi Kiran, CMO, Quali Sep 6 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Hybrid clouds are important for enterprises having on-premise deployments as well as legacy applications. Likewise, multi-cloud scenarios appeal to organizations that want the flexibility to move between different clouds and not get locked-in into either one public or private clouds architecture. While over 70% of enterprises have expressed a need to deploy hybrid and/or multi-cloud architectures, as they modernize their application architectures the rollouts are complex and time consuming causing budget overruns and delays. The complexity is largely associated with the lack of common tooling, mismatched cloud architectures and expertise. These can be significantly overcome by providing access to on-demand, self-service IT environments (on-premise as well as public cloud, or a combination thereof), that would allow for more predictable application performance and security, thereby allowing for faster cloud migration and rollout, with reduced cost and risk.

    Join this webinar with 451 research and Quali to learn:
    •Current trends in hybrid and multi-cloud deployments and enterprise requirements
    •How incorporating sandboxes and self-service environments in the workflow can smoothen cloud migration, hybrid deployments and the flexibility of multi-cloud deployment. Demo included.
    •Sample case study of an enterprise undergoing cloud migration with best practice recommendations
