Today’s customers expect personalized experiences and there are a plethora of available martech solutions that claim to have the tools to help. And while marketers are able to collect a mass amount of data, it’s becoming increasingly challenging to be able to act on that data, and have one, central repository to be able to make informed decisions and drive more meaningful customer experiences.
A new martech solution has recently appeared into the space that does just that - the Customer Data Platform (CDP). In this webcast, you can expect to learn:
- How these purpose-built products assemble and distribute customer data
- Why CDPs are faster, easier to use, cheaper and more flexible than other solutions
- What problems a CDP can help the marketer solve
- The key ways to using a CDP in driving a business’s digital transformation

As data is growing at an exponential rate, organizations are increasingly looking to leverage streaming data from mobile devices, wearable technology and sensors for real-time processing and analytics. Gartner estimates that, “By 2020, 70% of organizations will adopt data streaming to enable real-time analytics.” However, implementing real-time data ingest, processing and delivering insights at scale requires infrastructure with zero latency and easy access to information when it is required.
In the webinar, we’ll discuss:
- Adopting Modern Data Lake with the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP)
- Accelerating real-time data analytics with Hortonworks Data Flow (HDFTM) and Attunity to build a data lake
- Solving challenges with real-time data ingest and managing data in motion workloads
Join subject matter experts from IBM and Hortonworks for a joint webcast to help you accelerate real-time data analytics and manage your data workloads efficiently.
With the growing number of data-driven organizations new approaches are needed to drive innovation in scaling and implementing data science.

With new technologies such as Hive LLAP or Spark SQL, do you still need a data warehouse or can you just put everything in a data lake and report off of that? No! In the presentation, James will discuss why you still need a relational data warehouse and how to use a data lake and an RDBMS data warehouse to get the best of both worlds.
James will go into detail on the characteristics of a data lake and its benefits and why you still need data governance tasks in a data lake. He'll also discuss using Hadoop as the data lake, data virtualization, and the need for OLAP in a big data solution, and he will put it all together by showing common big data architectures.

There was a time when the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) was the only way to provide a 360-degree analytical view of the business. In recent years many organizations have deployed disparate analytics alternatives to the EDW, including: cloud data warehouses, machine learning frameworks, graph databases, geospatial tools, and other technologies. Often these new deployments have resulted in the creation of analytical silos that are too complex to integrate, seriously limiting global insights and innovation.
Join guest speaker, 451 Research’s Jim Curtis and Pivotal’s Jacque Istok for an interactive discussion about some of the overarching trends affecting the data warehousing market, as well as how to build a next generation data platform to accelerate business innovation. During this webinar you will learn:
- The significance of a multi-cloud, infrastructure-agnostic analytics
- What is working and what isn’t, when it comes to analytics integration
- The importance of seamlessly integrating all your analytics in one platform
- How to innovate faster, taking advantage of open source and agile software
We look forward to you joining us.

Today, big data is enabling the advanced analytics that companies have dreamed of for driving their business. And as forward-thinking companies take advantage of big data and advanced analytics to drive digital transformation initiatives, it is forcing the laggards to realize that they will have to do the same if they want to survive.
The generally accepted architectural model for harnessing big data is a data lake. But data lakes, if leveraged simply as cheap storage within which to dump data, will inevitably disappoint. As the saying goes, garbage in, garbage out. Data lakes present unique challenges that must be dealt with if that big data set is going to be turned into actionable information.
So what does it take to succeed with a data lake? Why do some organizations get real value out of big data, while others struggle?
In this webinar, Matt Aslett, Research Director of Data Platform and Analytics at 451 Research and Kelly Schupp, VP of Data-driven Marketing at Zaloni, will discuss ideal data lake use cases such as Customer 360 and IoT. They will also discuss Zaloni’s data lake maturity model with which the data-eager company can chart its ideal course and roadmap.
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
Data storage, data compute. Data ingestion. Metadata management. Governance. Visibility. Privacy. Transparency. These are just a few of the considerations you must plan for when modernizing your data platform with a data lake. It can be overwhelming, especially if you try to stitch specialized point products together yourself. Data lake implementations can get out of scope and out of control quickly.
Why pull your hair out trying to do it yourself? An actionable data lake is within reach. Join us as Nikhil Goel, Zaloni’s Lead Architect in Product Management, discusses the benefits that a turnkey data lake solution with the Zaloni Data Platform can provide as your data grows to meet your organization. Some of the topics covered will be:
• Storage and compute layers for cloud and on-premises
• Managed ingestion
• Zone-based data architecture
• Self-service access to the data catalog
• Customer success stories
Today's enterprises need broader access to data for a wider array of use cases to derive more value from data and get to business insights faster. However, it is critical that companies also ensure the proper controls are in place to safeguard data privacy and comply with regulatory requirements.
What does this look like? What are best practices to create a modern, scalable data infrastructure that can support this business challenge?
Zaloni partnered with industry-leading insurance company AIG to implement a data lake to tackle this very problem successfully. During this webcast, AIG's VP of Global Data Platforms, Carlos Matos, and Zaloni CEO, Ben Sharma will share insights from their real-world experience and discuss:
- Best practices for architecture, technology, data management and governance to enable centralized data services
- How to address lineage, data quality and privacy and security, and data lifecycle management
- Strategies for developing an enterprise-wide data lake service for advanced analytics that can bridge the gaps between different lines of business, financial systems and drive shared data insights across the organization

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,
