With organizations collecting an ever-increasing volume of data, the risk of a data breach or falling foul of a regulator is also increasing. Data security, privacy and protection is fast becoming a “must have” requirement within many data programs.
Organizations are starting to realize that there are potentially great synergies in having a much closer understanding of their data from both a governance and security viewpoint. Add in Artificial Intelligence and automation for remediation, together these capabilities are proving to be significant allies in the continuous battle of cyber-security and enabling Data Governance programs.
This webinar explores how these two worlds can now better understand the role that each has to play, in supporting and protecting their organization.
As part of the Reimagine Data Governance series of webinars, Informatica will demonstrate how having a closer relationship between the worlds of governance and security can enhance existing data use and data security capabilities. And how you, in taking that holistic approach, can provide governed and protected data to achieve key business outcomes.

Barbara Weaver Smith, The Large Account Sales ExpertRecorded: Aug 21 201942 mins
Description: Part #8 in the series Your Growth Ecosystem: Don’t Think Small About Your Big Accounts. For CEOs, Presidents, Founders/Owners, Business Development Heads, Sales VPs, and Key Account Managers of companies of any size, with special relevance to those with $10 million to $500 million in annual revenue. The series is a strategic, high-level approach to managing your organization to successfully sell and grow sales to multinational and global corporations.
Volumes have been written about how to match your sales process to “the buyers’ journey.” Frankly I think most people involved in selecting and influencing big, complex buying decisions in large corporations don’t have any real clue how to do it. Procurement people have a set of procedures and rules, but they still have to satisfy the end users, who may have very different ideas about what criteria are most important. And the relative power of procurement and executive users varies greatly. Smart sellers know how to lead the buyers to the right decision, and how to do that is the subject of this webinar.
You will learn:
1. How to locate and connect with the appropriate buyers and influencers.
2. How to plan with an internal team.
3. How to plan for the initial meeting..
4. How to prepare great questions.
5. What to do when the process stalls.
As AI becomes all-pervasive, more and more companies need to start thinking about how AI can help in their business transformation and optimization journey. According to a Gartner survey, 54% respondents plan to start deployment within the next few years. However, their are multiple barriers, including finding a starting point and fear of the unknown.
This webinar breaks down AI for the business & IT - what use cases should CIOs and business organizations focus on and how do we get started? What are the possible use cases? How do we even go about thinking about AI in our organization in a structured way?

Here’s a statistic that will boggle your mind: Humans consume 74 gigabytes, the equivalent of 175 newspapers of content, per day. Customers are assaulted with facts, pseudo facts, white papers, media and statistics all posing as relevant information. Much of the well sourced information is contradictory. Sorting the “need to knows” from the “nice to knows” can be exhausting. Add to this a new average of
ten stake holders and more and more customers are defaulting to the status quo or a no deal. What’s the solution? New research, just released by Gartner, reveals that sellers who help make sense of information, who can simplify and tune into the feelings of their customers rather than piling on more data, significantly outperform
their peers. How must sellers adapt to this new reality? What are the three most important behaviors to this new reality of sense making?
In this webinar you will learn to:
1. Leverage video to reach additional stakeholders and improve customer experience.
2. Create buyer focused presentations that drive your unique value.
3. Ask questions that line up with how the brain processes information.
4. Guide buyers to a buying decision through stories, metaphors and anecdotes.

Data growth and chaotic data management is causing ever-increasing costs and user discontent. More and more “digital landfills” are created — completely obsolete data that continues to be stored and managed unnecessarily. International studies show that around 70-80% of all stored data is of no use to the organization, increasing the overall cost for managing data.
How can the valuable data be separated from the Redundant, Outdated, Trivial (ROT) data which is duplicated, obsolete, or has no meaning for the organization?
The traditional approach is to manually identify and clean files, folders, data structures and the like. But this manual approach is limited, merely because of the amounts of data stored in an average organization. Consequently, an automated solution is required. An important starting point is the automatic classification of all data in order to be able to eliminate ROT data objects continuously.
Join Paul Perrotta, the Technical Communication Wrangler with his special guests, Andreas Blumauer, CEO and founder of Semantic Web Company and Bruno Wildhaber, Managing Partner at Swiss Information Governance Competence Centre. Andreas and Bruno will look into success criteria of data cleanup but also discuss the governance model.
Topics to be covered include:
• How is the cleanup process set up?
• What is the role of semantic technologies and how can they support the cleanup process?
• How to identify “valuable” vs. ROT-data? What is “valuable” data? Which quality criteria must valuable data meet and who defines them?
• How can complex rules for automatic cleanup not only be implemented but also made maintainable?

Getting promoted to a supervisory role is exciting . . . and scary. A promotion to leadership, supervision or management brings new responsibilities, new relationship dynamics, and new opportunities for personal and career growth. And often, new leaders don’t get the training, support, and guidance they need to be successful.
Did you know that 40% of new managers fail within the first 18 months of promoting them? Why? They got promoted because they were good at their job—not because they can actually lead people. They’ve never led people, dealt with challenging time management issues, administered company policy or had to deal with upper management directly before. In other words, they’re completely unprepared.
The good news is first-time managers and supervisors can learn the kinds of things it usually takes managers years to learn. Whether you are in learning and training or HR wanting to help others in this important and challenging position or are that new leader yourself, this interactive and informative webinar will help you be more effective and successful.
You will learn:
1. The most common mistakes new leaders make (and some solutions)
2.The four perspectives that must change for a new supervisor to be successful
3.How to manage relationships and expectations during the transition – up, down and across the organization
The gaming industry has gone through dramatic changes in the last 10 years, but there are four trends that are likely to change things even further: the increased power of mobile gaming, the integration of AR in real-world environments, the growth of streaming audiences eclipsing player growth and 5G networks.
In this session, we’ll take a look at the history of gaming and the trends, products and moments that have driven the industry forward to this point. We’ll then look at how these four trends, supported by AI and data, are likely to impact the future of gaming.
Registration is free.
What this webinar will cover:
*A historical look at gaming revenue and the impact of mobile networks
*Analysis of gaming demographic shifts, and what could happen when “peak millennial hits peak gamer”
*Inside data on esports, streaming audience growth, and what we can learn from “stick and ball” revenue models
*Predictions on the next generation of gaming experiences, and when these trends will converge and disrupt the industry
