The first rule of data analytics for fast-growing companies? Measure all things. When putting in place a robust data analytics strategy to go from measurement to insight, you’ve got lots of options for tools -- from databases and data warehouse options to new “big data” tools such as Hadoop, Spark, and their related components. But tools are nothing if you don’t know how to put them to use.
We’re going to get some real talk from practitioners in the trenches and learn how people are bringing together new big data technologies in the cloud to deliver a truly world class data analytics solution. One such practitioner is Celtra, a fast-growing provider of creative technology for data-driven digital display advertising. We’re going to sit down with the Director of Engineering, Analytics at Celtra to learn how they built a high-performance data processing pipeline using Spark + a cloud data warehouse, enabling them to process over 2 billion analytics events per day in support of dashboards, applications, and ad hoc analytics.
In this webinar you’ll:
* Build a simpler, faster solution to support your data analytics
* Support diverse reporting and ad hoc analytics in one system
* Take advantage of the cloud for flexibility, scaling, and simplicity
* Evan Schuman, Moderator, VentureBeat
* Grega Kešpret, Director of Engineering, Analytics, Celtra
* Jon Bock, VP of Marketing and Products, Snowflake

No registration required – EMC World 2016 is under way. Join me again as I sit down with George Crump, Lead Analyst at Storage Switzerland. In this live podcast we will give you a recap of EMC World day 3 and give updates on emerging technologies, XtremIO, Data Protection and an EMC World Wrap up.
Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone.
More data in more places is leading to an increasing number of data breaches with attackers intent on trying to monetize your sensitive information.
Jason Hart, IDP CTO at Gemalto will explain why data is the new oil and how easy it is to get hacked with a live hacking demo.
In this interactive webinar we will also discuss:
- Why your data is wanted
- The new data Protection paradigm
- Live Hacking demo
- What’s next and what to do now to remain on the safe side
Join the webinar to find out what you should know about Data Protection, how Cloud, IOT and big data impact your information security solutions and to how to keep your data safe.
As power density is rapidly increasing in today’s data center, provisioning the right amount of power to the rack without under sizing or over provisioning the power chain has become a real design challenge.

Dick Csaplar – Senior Research Analyst, Aberdeen Group
Much has been written about the benefits of virtualization. However, do these benefits apply to very large, mission critical applications such as SAP?
In November 2011, Aberdeen surveyed 100 enterprises that are using SAP to find out if they have virtualized their SAP deployment, how they did it and what benefits they received. Join us as Dick Csaplar, Senior Research Analyst for Aberdeen, shares the results of this survey and provides insights as to how enterprises are successfully virtualizing their SAP landscapes.
Although the benefits of virtualization are well established, some companies have stopped short of virtualizing their business-critical applications. Uncover the truth about how you can virtualize business-critical applications and achieve benefits such as faster migration to new hardware and faster application upgrades.
Attend this webcast to learn about:
•New capabilities in VMware vSphere® 5 to virtualize business-critical applications
•Customer case studies of companies that have virtualized Oracle and SQL
•New capabilities providing simplified disaster recovery, efficient automated operations and app security
