You’ll also see how easy it is to add new locations and make changes as your business evolves with RingCentral’s cloud based communications system.

    Our expert presenter, David Lee, Ring Central’s Vice President of Platform, will walk you through how it works and answer your questions. You’ll see:

    •How to place calls with one click from within ZOHO
    •Pop-up screens with customer profile and call history
    •Automated ticket creation from calls
  • Seeing and understanding data is richer than creating a collection of queries, dashboards, and workbooks.You will see how visual and cognitive science explain what makes data visualization so deeply satisfying. Why does a collection of bars, lines, colors, and boxes become surprisingly powerful and meaningful? How does fluid interaction with data views multiply our intelligence? Three decades of research into the beautiful science of data visualization explain why history have converged at this moment, and why interactive data visualization has brought us to the verge of an exciting new revolution.
  • The big data era has lead to the proliferation of new technologies that enable a wider set of users to more effectively analyze and consume data to improve operations and decision making. We’ve moved beyond traditional dashboard visualizations as the sole method of consuming data, and instead are now incorporating data visualizations into nearly every aspect of the analysis process. The discussion will explore the considerations of designing data visualizations to enable fast exploration and profiling of data.
  • Fast data applications are growing rapidly – driven by the adoption of IoT, M2M and SaaS platforms. While there’s general recognition that fast streaming data applications can produce significant yet fundamentally different values than Big Data applications, it’s not yet clear what technologies and approaches should be used to derive the value from these fast data streams. Building applications on real-time streaming data has unique requirements. Legacy databases get overwhelmed. A common solution is stitching together a collection of open source projects; however this has a steep learning curve, adds complexity and limits performance and latency.

    So how do you combine real-time analytics with real-time decisions in an architecture that's reliable, scalable and simple? The answer is a scale out, in-memory database, that’s fast enough (< 1 millisecond) to support per-event transactions. In addition, a platform that supports streaming aggregation combined with per-event ACID processing and SQL, simplifies development and enhances performance and capability. VoltDB uses materialized views to provide real-time aggregation and summary and support combining real-time analytics with per-event decisions. The basis is SQL, which is used to query and re-aggregate views; and up-to-date views can be queried inside of transactions for per-event, real-time transactions.

    In this webinar Ryan Betts, CTO at VoltDB, will explain:
    • Why streaming aggregation is a key to streaming analytics
    • How SQL can be used in combination with streaming aggregation
    • The benefits of up-to-date analytics for per-event transactions and insights
  • As the field of analytics turns more and more predictive, the emphasis of using data moves to discovering the unknown. But moving beyond the obvious to completely understand your customers’ journey is a very complex step. How can you derive patterns from those countless data sources to optimise customer experience and create a competitive advantage?

    In this webinar Ronald van Loon, Director Business Development at Advertisement, will:
    •Discuss several case studies
    •Elaborate on the challenges
    •Define the impact for organizations and professionals responsible for online sales and customer retention
    •Show how a new approach and technology can solve these challenges
    •Discuss the result for organisations
  • Having data is not enough. Adding context to data is essential to understand the data, find patterns and engage audiences. Data visualization is a key element of data science, the interdisciplinary field which deals with finding insights from data. In this webinar, we explore the roles of data visualization at different stages of the data science process, and why it is essential. We also look at how data is encoded visually with shape, size, color and other variables and also the basic principles of visual encoding can be applied to build better visualizations. We cover narratives, types of bias and maps. Finally we look at how various tools – both open source and off-the-shelf software that’s used in data science to build effective data visualizations.
  • Agile is becoming a mainstream development methodology in the industry. The Agile Manifesto is broadly accepted, but implementations vary quite often.

    Abstract:

    Personalization is critical to the success of your business model. Many of the most innovative and beloved companies in recent history -- think Facebook, Amazon, Google, Netflix, Pandora, Spotify and Hulu, just to name a few -- have transformed customer expectations and disrupted their individual industries. Now customers expect it. It increases clicks, open rates and conversions -- usually by pretty substantial margins. But -- how do you DO it?

    The process is different at every step of the customer journey and there's a lot that goes into personalization. What's more, there's a lot more ways to reach your customers than ever. Personalizing display ads is very different from personalizing emails or a mobile app experience. The data, content, and delivery mechanisms necessary to personalize those messages changes -- and so should your strategy.

    We're taking a holistic look at the art of personalization -- from customer expectations to ROI. We'll show you a new way of looking at identity -- from both the customer's behavior to predicting their behaviors.

    In this webinar, you'll:

    * Learn how to collect data that helps visualize the customer's journey
    * Get tips on one of the biggest challenges to increasing the ROI of marketing automation
    * Access the theory of identity enrichment
    * Gain insight into best practices for personalization in different channels

  • IT spend has become one of the largest budget line items in companies today. IT organizations worldwide spent over $4 trillion dollars in 2013 alone. Despite the growth in IT spend, many IT organizations do not have the capability to clearly and easily articulate where that spend is going, how it correlates to the services they are delivering or what value the business is realizing from the services.

    In order to stay competitive, businesses are seeking ways to optimize and align future IT investment decisions with the strategic direction of the company. By making all of the costs of running IT transparent, IT can change the way business units consume IT resources, drive down total enterprise IT costs and focus on IT spending that delivers real business value.

    Join Jerry Wertelecky as he discusses:

    • Facilitate collaboration between IT and Finance to increase visibility into the costs, utilization and operations of all IT Services

  • In the digital transformation of companies, many questions have arisen: how can Business Intelligence meet new business needs? How can Business Intelligence deliver insights in real-time? How can it analyse and scale increasingly growing data? How do you deploy business applications without training or user manuals?

    In this webinar, you will learn through case studies how Big Data is transforming business intelligence via a technological transformation and with agile methods and a business-oriented approach.
  • The CIO is faced with reconciling the, apparently, irreconcilable. How does he build a cost effective technology platform that provides business agility, and manages risk?

    In this session, Steve O’Donnell explains the critical success factors in achieving that desired outcome, the considered compromises, the strategies and tactical approaches that the CIO will need to adopt to deliver business benefits and keep his stakeholders onside. He will look at the different types of application and how they need to be managed and hosted. Where do we build, where do we buy and where is configuration the right answer? How do we choose between in-house infrastructure, managed cloud services and engineered systems?

    Join Stephen for a structured approach to providing a cohesive strategy for IT investment that makes sense, and optimises business outcomes whilst being simple enough to gain business stakeholder buy in and approval.

  • This webcast will give an overview of deploying Hadoop within the organization as a strategic initiative for business advantage. Rather than viewing distributed databases as an incremental solution to an IT problem, Ioana Hreninciuc look at the bigger picture: what can Hadoop do not for the database administrators but for the organization as a whole?

    Business users have problems and budgets to fix them, but Hadoop is a technical product sold by technical people. The market for big data intake and analytics is growing but the people who could support this growth more than anyone are the business users, not IT managers. IT is shrinking or in some cases completely outsourced so it becomes very difficult to take bold steps in IT.

    It is essential to consider the strategic questions in prioritizing Hadoop and other technologies. This webcast will give a framework and starting point in these issues:

    · IT or business user – who benefits more from deploying Hadoop?

    · Who could or should bring Hadoop into the organization?

    · Is Hadoop really necessary? What are the organization’s alternatives?

    · How can you leverage an existing Hadoop deployment from your organization?

    · What should a business user know about Hadoop?

    · How long does it take to get started with Hadoop?

    · Is Hadoop as a Service a reasonable alternative for your organization?

    · What are the PROs and CONs of Hadoop as a Service?
  • From ecommerce platform selection to warehouse, order and product management systems, join ecommerce architect specialist Mike Bainbridge as he gives an overview of key software solutions for retailers.
  • With 82% of all data now having location content, brands cannot afford to ignore the importance of location when gaining insight on the customers, they need to understand where they are, and where they are going to be. With this additional insight, clients not only understand the attributes of existing data, but also gain insight into what influences customers.

    In essence: data with location gives context. Combine context with influence, and there is Insight
  • Business Intelligence vs. Data Analytics or Data Analytics vs Business Intelligence?

    Most companies are wrestling internally to get clear and valuable data/insights to predict the change that could affect their business. Traditional BI could be improved on with the help of Data Analytics, while at the same time Data Analytics needs to be fed by BI. More and more BI and real-time analytics are converging and supporting each other to deliver valuable insights and critical reports.
    Let’s look together at some tips and real life examples.
  • Just back in 2012, for the first time ever 'data' made the cut as a critical new form of economic currency at the prestigious World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. And conversations were about more than just raising bottom lines—they were discussions by world leaders on the global socioeconomic impact of the "quantification of everything." In other words, data is a big, big deal.

    Attend this 45-minute webinar to learn about:

    · What defines something as big data and why you should care

    · The technologies that support it and how you can benefit
