There are many reasons for automating a data governance program. Improved efficiency. Increased profitability. Reduced risk. Or all the above – and so many more. But building out an enterprise wide data governance program can’t be successful if it’s not powered by high quality, trustworthy data. With reliable data at your fingertips, and the right tools to help you get the job down, your team is able to meet your mission. That’s intelligent data governance and that’s what has been at the core of McGraw-Hill Education’s data governance program.
Join us on July 13th to hear Robbie Pape, Data Governance Director at McGraw-Hill Education, share how having the right people, process and technology – including Informatica Axon - enables her team to deliver data fit for purpose across the enterprise.

The Internet of Things is a generational opportunity to create a new world where data, technology, and people are integrated to transform customer experience. This connected customer experience, powered by sensors, data, and processes, is driven at the individual level and needs to be relevant, real time, and convenient. It also needs to support an entire customer journey.
In this webinar, Blue Hill Research will explore the IoT Analytics Framework necessary to support the connected customer slated to arise in verticals such as retail, hospitality, healthcare, utilities, and transportation. By looking at experience across multiple verticals and exploring the commonalities in data types, data access, and data-driven responses that define the connected customer, this presentation will provide best practices that enterprises should consider to maximize the value of the Internet of Things.
For analytics to make a meaningful organizational impact, organizations have to effectively embed analytics into key business tasks and decisions such as sales operations, ecommerce, workforce management, product and service workflows, revenue recognition, and financial performance. Blue Hill's research, including interviews, case studies, surveys, and vendor briefings, consistently show that effective analytic usage requires embedding analytics into a variety of workflows in a repeatable, scalable, and consistent fashion that leads to real-time visibility. Although this may seem to be a straightforward task, Blue Hill finds that a majority of companies fail to meet this standard of flexible and value-driven embedded analytics for a variety of reasons, including the following:
Internal analytics cannot be easily scaled to serve organization-wide data or users
Analytics cannot be easily configured or customized to meet specific user needs
Companies lack a repeatable process for embedding analytics for similar data processes
End users can't get the right data sources connected to the right analytic tasks
Key analytic views are not directly connected to the current version of the truth
In this webinar, Blue Hill Research will provide guidance on the key reasons that traditional BI deployments, even those created based on historical "best practices" for analytics, fail to achieve these goals and the benefits associated with supporting embedded analytics as an ongoing Sixth Sense to improve business performance rather than a never-ending series of one-off requests.
As organizations continue to recognize the advantages of self-service analytics and data discovery they are evaluating alternatives to legacy Business Intelligence environments. To better understand this process, Blue Hill Research conducted a dedicated study to understand how users evaluate TIBCO Spotfire in comparison to other tools and how TIBCO Spotfire impacts their organization.
Blue Hill Research analyzed the experiences of 131 current TIBCO Spotfire customers to evaluate how they use TIBCO Spotfire and how they rate their experience. Among a number of areas, Blue Hill Research investigated:
· TIBCO Spotfire’s ease of use in comparison to other solutions
· The time-to-value associated with choosing TIBCO Spotfire
· The most common use cases for TIBCO Spotfire
Join Principal Analyst James Haight from Blue Hill Research as he discusses the findings of his research initiative into deconstructing how and why organizations are choosing TIBCO Spotfire. For those considering an investment in TIBCO Spotfire this webinar will discuss how TIBCO Spotfire is typically rated and used. For existing TIBCO Spotfire users, this webinar presents an opportunity to see how your experience compares to that of peer organizations.
Registrants will receive a complimentary copy of Blue Hill Research’s TIBCO Spotfire User Experience Analysis Benchmark Report

Senator Mark Warner, Virginia
As organization’s storage needs grow and expand geographies, they find that they do not have a comprehensive plan to rapidly recover from a natural disaster, cyberattack, or equipment failure. To make matters worse, companies that rely on traditional backup and recovery solutions are simply not able to keep up with the increasing data needs of today’s enterprise. These systems are overly complex, costly, and don’t scale well with the business.
A comprehensive answer to these data growth challenges is merging cloud backup with disaster recovery (DR). A unified solution that is cloud-native provides unlimited scalability, instant availability, long-term retention, and minimizes the impact on the business in case of a disaster. This seamless manageability and visibility of data across a range of locations and applications is crucial for long-term success.
Join Senior Analyst of Storage Technologies, Steven Hill of 451 Research and Druva’s Senior Product Marketing Manager, Seyi Verma, where they’ll highlight:
- The growing need for updating and improving disaster recovery and data backup
- What factors to consider when building a BCDR plan
- What to beware of when evaluating legacy and hybrid models for backup and DR
- How cloud‐native backup and DR provides immediate failover to minimize downtime and impact
- And more!
As Financial Institutions adapt to the digital world, and the digital consumer, data and analytics are becoming increasingly important in their fight to provide customer support, offerings, accuracy and services and optimize their processes.

So how are modern financial institutions coping and adapting to the data oriented world, and what are the tools that are helping them?
