  • A new analytics culture driven by millennials is emerging. It’s built on a foundation of widespread access to lots of data, an innovative, experimental and unconventional spirit, and the availability of powerful new techniques and scalable computing power.

    This unprecedented convergence of data, spirit and the means to process it is creating the “new analytics experience” right this minute. In this session, we’ll discuss how this unique combination of discovery, deployment and data management – three capabilities SAS has mastered – will affect and challenge your established decision-making activities and change business users’ perceptions of analytics and business intelligence.
  • The proliferation of smartphones, geofencing, indoor location and analytics has transformed the meaning of "native" for mobile marketers, app developers and consumers. "Native" used to mean a reliance on Facebook and Google for in-stream ads that seem like organic content. It now refers to the use of on-device, local intelligence to get beyond the beacon to understand the context of a mobile user's interactions. Native control of functionality makes apps more popular with customers. It spells the difference between single-digit usage and delivers the full potential of personalized mobile marketing.

  • From students to executives, finding solutions to improve efficiency, productivity, and communication has become vital. These end users are trying to excel in their work, and while they don’t mean to cause harm, in most organizations this desire leads to the use of applications, services, and data storage and sharing beyond IT's boundaries. This practice, known as “shadow IT,” is having an obvious impact on technical support teams. Attend this webinar to learn more about shadow IT and how you can strike a balance between reaping the benefits and avoiding the risk.

  • One of the major barriers to improving healthcare is making sense of the large volume of data involved. We show that a combination of Google's BigQuery and Tableau allows insightful, interactive analysis of English primary care prescribing data – approximately £35bn of NHS spend, £4.5 bn prescriptions issued by 10k GP practices from about 25k drugs). Tableau can allow insights into national trends but also allow interactive drill down to analyse local prescribing patterns for narrow ranges of drugs. We show how interaction even with large datasets greatly improves the impact of analysis on behaviour.

  • When we talk about Big Data, we imagine large stores of data that needs to be mined and analysed. This data is "at rest" - in a database, in Hadoop. But data at rest is old data, and may be beyond its shelf life. Some data needs to be analysed while it is still moving. This is FAST DATA, and it represents the single most important opportunity that all manner of businesses are looking to exploit.

    But how to use fast data, capture its meaning and react immediately? These are some of the topics that will be covered by Ana Costa e Silva in this interactive and thought-provoking webinar.

  • In today's world where applications are distributed through cloud and mobile platforms, the risks to vulnerable applications are multiplying. Application managers are looking for ways to consolidate controls around their disparate applications and assign the proper staff, leadership and workflow processes to do this.

    Based on the 2014 Application Security Programs and Practices survey, application security is on the rise, with 83% of 488 respondents reporting some sort of application security program in place (up from 66% in SANS' 2013 survey). In the 2014 survey, respondents' primary focus for their security programs was around web applications.

    This year's survey intends to find out how the rise of mobility and cloud applications is changing respondents' application security program efforts and to gather best practice advice for secure management of disparate applications throughout their lifecycle.

    This second part of the webcast will focus on issues in application development.
  • Software drives business optimization, and agile software development approaches help drive innovation. Yet managing disparate applications deployed across a range of platforms without consistent agile quality strategies is costly, inefficient, and inherently risky. Effective approaches to agile quality are becoming increasingly vital to success.

    Agile development provides tremendous opportunities for efficient, adaptive code creation, yet organizational strategies to manage code quality and agile testing as part of an agile lifecycle remain woefully inadequate. In addition, as mobile, cloud, and social platforms themselves are evolving at an agile pace, complexity increases, adding further quality challenges.

    Join IDC analyst Melinda Ballou as she discusses business and development strategies to leverage an agile quality community culture, agile techniques, and automation as the complex sourcing of software creation evolves.

    Melinda will:
    • discuss the benefits and challenges of agile quality adoption
    • explain how agile quality and related lifecycle approaches enable speedier and collaborative code creation
    • provide visibility into software assets that improve software development and business adaptability
  • DevOps shifts the IT organization and how engineers interact. It brings a set of best practices that defines how engineers and IT work together that is markedly different than how work has been traditionally accomplished. It’s a culture of automating, measuring, and sharing in the software development life cycle. Where is your company on the DevOps journey? Join Hart Hoover, a Rackspace DevOps Automation Engineer, as he walks through points on that journey you will need to reach to be successful.

    In this webinar, we will cover:
    •Config Management
    •Automating Waste / Defining Correct Process

  • We’ve entered an unprecedented age in B2B marketing.

    Today’s buyers are savvier, more connected, and more informed than ever before — and they’re well aware of the power they possess. When companies fail to deliver the smooth and personalized buyer experience that consumers have come to expect, favorable alternatives are little more than a Google search away; it’s no secret and it’s a challenge that all B2B organizations face.

    But here’s the bottom line that’s too-often forgotten: delivering a seamless buyer’s experience starts with seamless alignment internally. Marketing and sales must work together throughout the decision-making journey, sharing insights and updates and allowing each team to play to their greatest strengths.

    - translate data into actionable insights for both sales and marketing
  • Organizations have started to realize the benefits of “developing and deploying software quickly” through the concept of Continuous Delivery. Although this process enables quick delivery of developed features it does not address the productivity issues like lack of historical knowledge, complicated configuration management, remote access to developer workspace, poor collaboration due to desktop IDEs and so on.

    In this webinar, you will learn how to optimize your complete software development lifecycle through cloud-based agile process.

    Key takeaways:
    •How to scale up development in the cloud for distributed teams
    •How to enhance developer productivity efficiency
    •How to effectively manage code and releases in the cloud
    •How to continuously monitor and measure the quality of software development
    •Agile + CI/CD+ CLOUD - A case scenario
  • These days, every aspect of educational development creates digital data. Students, faculty, and staff are continually creating files for assignments, lectures and lesson plans, lab and field research, plus the administrative “paper trail”, challenging you, the IT manager, to secure, protect, and manage the growing data sprawl. Schools are just as susceptible to security breaches as other organizations and must comply with stringent data privacy regulations, all while supporting a diverse and constantly changing user base.

    These days, IT managers are challenged with the task of successfully securing, protecting and managing the growing data sprawl across all industries. In this webinar, hear a unique perspective on how digital data affects the educational sector and how it measures against other verticals.

    Join guest Mark Lamson, Director of IT at the Westerly, RI public school system, and David Stevens, Technical Marketing Manager at DataGravity, as they explore ways that local school districts, colleges and universities can use automated file and data analysis to reduce complexity and better serve their constituents. You’ll learn strategies to:

    •Enhance data compliance and security
    •Increase visibility and understanding of your data sets
    •Rein in data growth and storage utilization
