    • Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (North America)
      Are you killing the benefits of your data lake? (North America) Rick van der Lans, Independent Business Intelligence Analyst and Lakshmi Randall, Director of Product Marketing, Denodo Recorded: Jun 27 2018 6:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Data lakes are centralized data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically copied to a data lake which serves as a one storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system.
      So, what’s the solution?

      A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimizing the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

      Attend this session to learn:

      • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
      • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
      • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.

      Do not miss this opportunity to make your data lake project successful and beneficial.

      Data Preparation Done Right Davinder Mundy, Specialist Big Data Technologies, Informatica Recorded: May 9 2018 9:00 am UTC 45 mins
    • How do you avoid your enterprise data lake turning into a so-called data swamp? The explosion of structured, unstructured and streaming data can be overwhelming for data lake users, and make it unmanageable for IT. Without scalable, repeatable, and intelligent mechanisms for cataloguing and curating data, the advantages of data lakes diminish. The key to solving the problem of data swamps is Informatica’s metadata driven approach which leverages intelligent methods to automatically discover, profile and infer relationships about data assets. Enabling business analysts and citizen integrators to quickly find, understand and prepare the data they are looking for.

    • Demystifying the Data Security Landscape
      Demystifying the Data Security Landscape Anand Kanuri, Practice Head - Data Security, Wipro Ltd Recorded: Jul 11 2018 2:30 pm UTC 61 mins
    • Data is the new currency for most organizations and data volumes are continuing to grow at an explosive rate. While the advantage of collection of such large volumes of data is obvious, protection of this data from cybercriminals and malicious actors is becoming increasingly difficult. Conventional security mechanisms are failing and large-scale security breaches, despite increasing security spends, are becoming commonplace. This, along with increasingly stringent regulatory requirements and privacy laws have brought “Data Security” – protection of the data itself whether in motion, in use or in transit into strong focus. While there has been an increasing focus on Data Centric Security, the solution landscape is fractured and enterprises are still struggling to identify and deploy long term solutions with minimal disruption to existing investments and processes. This talk will focus on the current state of Data security and offer pointers to how organizations can embark on a long-term Data Centric journey which truly adds business value.

    • Your Data Is A Mess: Take Control Of Data Quality Issues
      Your Data Is A Mess: Take Control Of Data Quality Issues Joe Christopher, VP Analytics, Blast Analytics & Marketing, & Adam Corey, CMO, Tealium Recorded: Jun 7 2018 5:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • If you feel like you don’t trust your data, there’s probably a good reason. It happens all the time; companies implement analytics, customize their solutions and don’t audit the implementation to ensure ongoing data accuracy. This leads to multiple inaccuracies, gaps in tracking, and — even worse — information that’s simply missing. Inaccurate data can send a brand down the wrong path, leading to bad decisions and additional costs for tools and resources that could have otherwise been avoided.

      Join and learn:

      - What data quality is and why it’s critical to an organization's overall success
      - Why your data is a mess and how to identify the warning signs of poor data quality
      - Best practices to ensure clean and quality data and how to take back control
      - And so much more!

      The webinar will conclude with a Fireside Chat with live questions from the audience on all things data quality.

    • The Data Lake for Agile Ingest, Discovery, & Analytics in Big Data Environments
      The Data Lake for Agile Ingest, Discovery, & Analytics in Big Data Environments Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton Recorded: Mar 27 2018 9:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • As data analytics becomes more embedded within organizations, as an enterprise business practice, the methods and principles of agile processes must also be employed.

      Agile includes DataOps, which refers to the tight coupling of data science model-building and model deployment. Agile can also refer to the rapid integration of new data sets into your big data environment for "zero-day" discovery, insights, and actionable intelligence.

      The Data Lake is an advantageous approach to implementing an agile data environment, primarily because of its focus on "schema-on-read", thereby skipping the laborious, time-consuming, and fragile process of database modeling, refactoring, and re-indexing every time a new data set is ingested.

      Another huge advantage of the data lake approach is the ability to annotate data sets and data granules with intelligent, searchable, reusable, flexible, user-generated, semantic, and contextual metatags. This tag layer makes your data "smart" -- and that makes your agile big data environment smart also!

    • Machine Learning Challenges - Data Integration and Transformation
      Machine Learning Challenges - Data Integration and Transformation Umesh Hodeghatta Rao, CTO, Nu-Sigma Analytics Labs Webcast: Data Integrity & Normalization Recorded: Aug 29 2018 5:00 pm UTC 51 mins
    • AI Machine Learning model accuracy depends on the quality of data. In data science, when we say quality of data, it means data consistency, data completeness and data correctness which are all part of data integrity. In this session we will talk about how machine learning models can be adopted for data integration. Also, in case of some of the machine learning models, we assume data is normally distributed or data elements are appropriately scaled. However, it is not always true. Hence, data has to be transformed by normalizing data without losing its integrity. This is a big challenge in data science. Data integrity is maintained with the help of integrity constraints or the rules that are designed to keep data consistent and correct. In this session we will discuss some of the techniques and methods used for data integration, data transformation and normalization while ensuring data integrity. We will walk you through the steps involved with the help of examples.

    • GDPR - Is Data Still the New Currency?
      GDPR - Is Data Still the New Currency? Primitive Logic CEO Jill Reber & President Kevin Moos Recorded: May 22 2018 9:00 pm UTC 37 mins
    • Getting your company ready for GDPR isn’t about putting a few new processes in place — it’s about rethinking your entire approach to personal data, including how to get value from it. For decades, companies have collected and stored all kinds of personal information “just in case” they ever needed it.

      GDPR requires a different approach. You need to be proactive in thinking about how to get value from your data, and you need to understand exactly what your company is doing with personal data and why.

      Join Jill Reber and Kevin Moos of Primitive Logic to learn:
      - How to work with third parties who process personal data on your behalf
      - How preparing for GDPR helps you understand your data on a whole new level (and why that’s a good thing)

    • Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility
      Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility Alba Fernández-Arias, Sales Engineering at Denodo. Recorded: Mar 27 2018 9:00 am UTC 39 mins
    • The data contained in the data lake is too valuable to restrict its use to just data scientists. It would make the investment in a data lake more worthwhile if the target audience can be enlarged without hindering the original users. However, this is not the case today, most data lakes are single-purpose. Also, the physical nature of data lakes have potential disadvantages and limitations weakening the benefits and possibly even killing a data lake project entirely.

      A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and greater use of the data lake investment without minimizing the potential value for data science or for making it a less flexible environment. Multi-purpose data lakes are data delivery environments architected to support a broad range of users, from traditional self-service BI users to sophisticated data scientists.

      Attend this session to learn:

      * The challenges of a physical data lake
      * How to create an architecture that makes a physical data lake more flexible
      * How to drive the adoption of the data lake by a larger audience
