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.Read more >

Prendre en compte la sécurité des données, leur qualité et leur gouvernance dès le départ assurera la bonne conduite du projet et inscrira durablement ces nouvelles technologies dans le SI.Read more >
Big Data Analytics success has been constrained by the difficulty in accessing siloed data and by the traditional IT approach of gathering requirements, designing and building extracts to turn data into valuable data assets. As IT organizations are backlogged with servicing business requests, business analysts and data scientists are looking for alternative methods to discover relevant data, share data with colleagues across divisions or geographies and prepare data assets for actionable insights.
In this deep dive, you will have the opportunity to learn about new features of Informatica Big Data Management 10.1 and Informatica’s latest innovation, Intelligent Data Lake, leveraging self-service efficiency for business analysts and data scientists by incorporating semantic search, data discovery and data preparation for interactive analysis while governing data assets.
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.
Business intelligence (BI) has been at the forefront of business decision-making for more than two decades. Then along came Big Data and it was thought that traditional BI technologies could never handle the volumes and performance issues associated with this unusual source of data.
So what do you do? Cast aside this critical form of analysis? Hardly a good answer. The better answer is to look for BI technologies that can keep up with Big Data, provide the same level of performance regardless of the volume or velocity of the data being analyzed, yet give the BI-savvy business users the familiar interface and multi-dimensionality they have come to know and love.
This webinar will present the findings from a recent survey of Big Data and the challenges and value many organizations have received from their implementations. In addition, the survey will supply a fascinating look into what Big Data technologies are most commonly used, the types of workloads supported, the most important capabilities for these platforms, the value and operational insights derived from the analytics performed in the environment, and the common use cases.
Attendees will also learn about a new BI technology built to handle Big Data queries with superior levels of scalability, performance and support for concurrent users. BI on Big Data platforms enables organizations to provide self-service and interactive on big data for all of their users across the enterprise.
Yes, now you CAN have BI on Big Data platforms!
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!
How do you make sure your data is bit correct in the source and target systems? In this video, learn how the Big Data Compare feature in HVR enables you to make sure your data is correct and in sync.
VP of Field Engineering, Joe deBuzna, explains how the Big Data Compare function works in HVR, why it is important for your business, and how it can identify and mitigate errors.
Every investment in big data, whether people or technology, should be measured by how quickly it generates value for the business. While big data uses cases may vary, the need to prioritize investments, control costs and measure impact is universal.
Like most CTOs, CIOs, VPs or Directors overseeing big data projects, you’re likely somewhere in between putting out fires and demonstrating how your big data projects are driving growth. If your focus, for example, is improving your users’ experience you need to be able to demonstrate a clear ROI in the form of higher customer retention or lifetime value.
However, in addition to driving growth, you’re also responsible for managing costs. Here’s the rub-- if you’re successful in driving growth, your big data costs will only go up. That’s the consequence of successful big data use cases. How then, when you have success, do you limit and manage rising cloud costs?
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How to measure business value from big data use cases
- Typical bottlenecks that delay time to value and ways to address them
- Strategies for managing rising cloud and people costs
- How best-in-class companies are generating value from big data use cases while also managing their costs
Watch this online session and learn how to reconcile the changing analytic needs of your business with the explosive pressures of modern big data.
