Is Your Data Ready for GDPR?
As the deadline for GDPR approaches, it is time to get practical about protecting personal data.
We break down the steps for turning a data lake into a data hub with appropriate data management and governance activities: from capturing and reconciling personal data to providing for consent management, data anomyzation, and the rights of the data subject.
A smart approach to GDPR compliance lays a foundation for personalized and profitable customer and employee relations.
Watch, as experts from MAPR and Talend show you how to:
Diagnose the maturity of your GDPR compliance;
Set up milestones and priorities to reach compliance;
Create a foundation to manage personal data through a data lake;
Master compliance operations - from data inventory to data transfers to individual rights management.
The idea of the data lake was alluring; the means to having data at your fingertips, filtered, profiled, secure and business-ready for data consumers to rapidly derive higher-levels of business value. However, this widely adopted concept didn’t come with an instruction manual.
The past few years have been turbulent times for enterprise data and analytics. In this live discussion, the presenters look beyond the lake, discussing the combination of self-service data preparation and data management and governance as one; a truly functional data marketplace or “data bazaar”. In addition, they will touch on other key enablers fueling the adoption of the self-service marketplace, including;
•Data as a service,
•Smart data ingestion – validation/profiling,
•Smart data cataloging/search,

How Data-Driven Approaches are Changing Your Data Management Strategies
Introducing data-driven strategies into your business model alters the way your organization manages and provides information to your customers, partners and employees. Gone are the days of “waterfall” implementation strategies from relational data to applications within a data center. Now, data-driven business models require agile implementation of applications based on information from all across an organization–on-premises, cloud, and mobile–and includes information from outside corporate walls from partners, third-party vendors, and customers. Data management strategies need to be ready to meet these challenges or your new and disruptive business models will fail at the most critical time: when your customers want to access it.
In this webinar, John L. Myers of Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) and Jack Norris of MapR will discuss how the new business advancements require data-rich applications that enable global, real-time data integration, microservices support, and in-place and continuous machine learning/AI and SQL capabilities.

The use of an emerging data fabric, offers enterprises a number of benefits and advantages including the ability to break through the gravitational pull of legacy data architectures and capture the full potential of all your data.
This webinar will detail how the deployment of a data fabric can enable enterprises to more quickly and easily scale across data volumes, data types and locations. The session will also provide an overview on how a data fabric reduces storage costs and increases application agility and reliability – with the underpinning to support the successful pursuit of:
* IoT through a data fabric’s capability of handling data flows from the edge to the cloud, centralizing learning, and distributing intelligence back to the edge for real-time responsiveness.
* Machine Learning/AI with the fabric able to handle the complex data flows and logistics to support the rapid deployment and coordination across machine learning models, algorithms and analytic tools
* Microservices and containers with the underlying data fabric able to support intelligent streams and support the mobility and flexibility for elastic stateful applications and analytic processes relying on shared data.
Your mission-critical datacenter runs on a highly resilient infrastructure: it has N+1, N+2 or better still, 2N mechanical and electrical capacity redundancy for critical components. But does it really? Based on Panoptic’s experience many datacenters carry a variety of lurking issues that might develop into a cascading failure. According to the Uptime Institute, the vast majority of even the world’s most elite datacenters do not operate as designed/installed on day one. This webinar will cover, in case study form, some of the causes underlying poor performance, and how a proactive maintenance program can uncover and help avoid an impact on the availability of services.Read more >
As big data has exploded, the ability for companies to easily leverage it has imploded. Organizations are drowning in their own information, unable to see the forest through the trees, while the big players consistently outperform in their ability to deliver a great customer experience, faster, cheaper…As a result, the vast majority of companies are scrambling to catch up and become more agile, data-driven, to use their data more effectively so they can attract and retain their elusive customers...
Join 451 Research and Treasure Data to learn how to enable your line of business team to own their own data (instead of relying on IT) to be able to:
- deliver a single, persistent view of your customer based on behavior data
- make that data accessible to the right people at the right time
- Increase organizational effectiveness by (finally) breaking down silos with data
- enable powerful marketing tools to enhance the customer experience

Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) enable intelligent processes that can autonomously make decisions in real-time. The real challenge for effective ML and AI is getting all relevant data to a converged data platform in real-time, where it can be processed using modern technologies and integrated into any downstream systems.
Running a business in real-time means being able to react to important business events as they happen. Applications that support day-to-day operations, however, are often scattered across the organization making it difficult to enable real-time movement of data.
In this session, MapR and StreamSets discussed how change data capture (CDC) can be used to enable real-time workloads to drive success with ML and AI. You’ll see demonstrations of technologies that enable CDC, and specifically learn how to:
Utilize change data capture (CDC) for efficient real-time data movement & processing
Connect your databases, data warehouses, and data lakes without code
Use MapR-DB as both source and destination for change data capture
Data warehouses have been the standard tool for analyzing data created by business operations. In recent years, increasing data volumes, new types of data formats, and emerging analytics technologies such as machine learning have given rise to modern data lakes. Connecting application databases, data warehouses, and data lakes using real-time data pipelines can significantly improve the time to action for business decisions.
Listen to our MapR and StreamSets experts to learn how to:
Connect your databases, data warehouse, and data lake without code: StreamSets can help you connect your existing databases and data warehouse with the MapR Converged Data Platform to create a modern data lake. You can offload/move data without having to write a single line of code as well as continually monitor and visualize your dataflows.
Utilize change data capture (CDC) for efficient real-time data movement: No more analyzing stale data or reliance on batch database updates. Leverage CDC to continually update the MapR data lake and ensure your insights and action are based on complete and current data.
Effectively analyze frequently changing data: MapR Converged Data Platform is built on a read-write file system unlike other big data platforms. Land frequently changing data into MapR-DB and analyze it using modern distributed computing technologies.
The value on data is rapidly shifting in many industries , recent high profile examples are the shift in ePayments where the micropayment transaction values are trending to fractions of cost. The value is more in what the payments provider and the banking system knows about the individual and the buying behaviour. Another is in the recent “Swift versus Apple” and Amazon tinkering with some eBook payments towards authors being “paid per number of pages read”. The issue of data and analytics is central to the sharing economy and the crowd economy that are driving new economic and monetisation business models.
This panel session looks at the emerging tools and business models that seek to deal with the digital convergence of data, customers and companies and the disintermediation and re-intermediation of markets.

Freed from the constraints of storage, network and memory, many big data analytics systems now are routinely revealing themselves to be compute bound. To compensate, big data analytic systems often result in wide horizontal sprawl (300-node Spark or NoSQL clusters are not unusual!)— to bring in enough compute for the task at hand. High system complexity and crushing operational costs often result. As the world shifts from physical to virtual assets and methods of engagement, there is an increasing need for systems of intelligence to live alongside the more traditional systems of record and systems of analysis. New approaches to data processing are required to support the real-time processing of data required to drive these systems of intelligence.
Join 451 Research and Kinetica to learn:
•An overview of the business and technical trends driving widespread interest in real-time analytics
•Why systems of analysis need to be transformed and augmented with systems of intelligence bringing new approaches to data processing
•How a new class of solution—a GPU-accelerated, scale out, in-memory database–can bring you orders of magnitude more compute power, significantly smaller hardware footprint, and unrivaled analytic capabilities.
•Hear how other companies in a variety of industries, such as financial services, entertainment, pharmaceutical, and oil and gas, benefit from augmenting their legacy systems with a modern analytics database.
