    • GraphFrames: DataFrame-based graphs for Apache® Spark™ GraphFrames: DataFrame-based graphs for Apache® Spark™ Joseph Bradley Recorded: Apr 14 2016 5:00 pm UTC 53 mins
    • GraphFrames bring the power of Apache Spark DataFrames to interactive analytics on graphs.

      Expressive motif queries simplify pattern search in graphs, and DataFrame integration allows seamlessly mixing graph queries with Spark SQL and ML. By leveraging Catalyst and Tungsten, GraphFrames provide scalability and performance. Uniform language APIs expose the full functionality of GraphX to Java and Python users for the first time.

      In this talk, the developers of the GraphFrames package will give an overview, a live demo, and a discussion of design decisions and future plans. This talk will be generally accessible, covering major improvements from GraphX and providing resources for getting started. A running example of analyzing flight delays will be used to explain the range of GraphFrame functionality: simple SQL and graph queries, motif finding, and powerful graph algorithms.

      For experts, this talk will also include a few technical details on design decisions, the current implementation, and ongoing work on speed and performance optimizations.

    • DB2 Tech Talk: Temporal Data Management Features of DB2 10 DB2 Tech Talk: Temporal Data Management Features of DB2 10 Serge Rielau (host), Matthias Nicola Recorded: Jun 21 2012 4:30 pm UTC 90 mins
    • This Tech Talk continues the "deep dive" on all all new IBM DB2 10 and IBM Infosphere Warehouse 10 features. Matthias Nicola from IBM labs explains the new Time Travel Query feature, which is a collection of bitemporal data management capabilities. These capabilities include temporal tables, temporal queries and updates, temporal constraints, and other functionality to manage data as of past or future points in time. Time Travel Query helps improve data consistency and quality across the enterprise and provides a cost-effective means to address auditing and compliance issues. As a result, organizations can reduce their risk of noncompliance and achieve greater business accuracy.

      The presentation will discuss:
      · How to create and manage temporal tables in DB2 10
      · How insert, update, delete, and query data for different points in the past, present, or future
      · How to use DB2 as a time machine

      Please note that this webcast is conducted at 12:30 PM ET. You may see this time translated into your local time zone.

    • Interactive Visualization of Streaming Data Powered by Spark Interactive Visualization of Streaming Data Powered by Spark Chief Technologist, Ruhollah Farchtchi Recorded: Mar 31 2016 1:50 pm UTC 29 mins
    • Chief Technologist, Ruhollah Farchtchi gives a presentation at Spark Summit East, 2016 on the Interactive Visualization of Streaming Data Powered by Spark.

      Much of the discussion on real-time data today focuses on the machine processing of that data. But helping humans visualize real-time streams is just as important. Visualizing real-time data introduces new UX and usability challenges for any developer embedding analytics into applications, especially when the target end users are business users and not data scientists. Self-service, interactive, subsecond response time to ad hoc queries — these are the new UX requirements for any enterprise visualizing real-time data. Streaming data also lends itself to new paradigms of interaction with the stream itself, like being able to pause, rewind and replay a stream. This talk is a case study in how and why Zoomdata built a “Data DVR” capability using Spark and Spark Streaming. We will describe the required user experience, the overall architecture and the specific use of Spark and Spark Streaming. We will describe the design considerations that led us to choose Spark Streaming over alternatives like Storm. We will show how end users configure the real-time increment and a historical retention window without writing any code themselves. We will also show how pause, rewind, replay is implemented in Spark and how the solution supports both real-time and historical analysis in the same architecture. Attendees will walk away with knowledge of Spark Streaming and how users can interactively work with streaming data. They will develop familiarity with the challenges of a lambda architecture and providing a consistent analytic experience over streaming and historical data.

    • Active Hunting Revealed: How vSOC Identifies Threats in Your Environment Active Hunting Revealed: How vSOC Identifies Threats in Your Environment Stephen Jones, Dir. of Managed Services, GuidePoint Security & Kris Merritt, Sr. Director, Hunting Operations, CrowdStrike Recorded: Aug 24 2016 6:00 pm UTC 43 mins
    • The GuidePoint Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) was designed to address many of the common complaints and issues customers experience with other managed service providers. We use the cloud to provide dynamic scalability and cost savings. vSOC analysts provide validated security incidents that allow you to focus on what’s really important: remediation.

      vSOC Detect now integrates with CrowdStrike Falcon by leveraging the Falcon Connect API to ingest Falcon host data in to the vSOC Detect monitoring platform. This integration enables vSOC Detect to leverage the CrowdStrike platform for endpoint monitoring and allows analysts to correlate endpoint data against SIEM security logs. This added correlation within our SIEM enables active hunting by vSOC Detect analysts to discover new and emerging threats in customer environments.

      Join us to explore “Hunting with CrowdStrike”— and how our Integrations make CrowdStrike Falcon Versatile and Effective.

      Topics will include:
      - Using the CrowdStrike Integration vSOC Detect
      - Learning how analysts can:
      - Perform ad-hoc searches and queries
      - Quickly Conduct comprehensive investigations
      - Identify insider threat activity
      - Create dashboards and reports

    • Solving the "Middle Data" problem Solving the "Middle Data" problem Natalino Busa, Head of Applied Data Science at Teradata Recorded: Jun 9 2016 2:00 pm UTC 34 mins
    • We are very well aware that companies like Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp deal with datasets in the range of 100's of Petabytes and more. However not all datasets are that big. Did you know that all english pages of Wikipedia amount to just 49 GB uncompressed text data? Likewise, there are a large amount of datasets ranging from customers data to events and transactions which do not exceed the low Terabyte range.

      In this webinar we will discuss how to process data in this range both for interactive queries as well for batch processing. We will look at what tradeoffs can be made by tuning the architecture with SSD and RAM. And which distributed computing paradigm work best for this datasets and their typical workloads. We will revision the concepts of data locality, data replication and parallel computing for this specific class of datasets.

    • Leveraging Compression for SQL Server Performance Leveraging Compression for SQL Server Performance Sumeet Bansal & Neil Hambly Recorded: Jun 23 2016 11:10 pm UTC 62 mins
    • ndexing is king when it comes to achieving highest levels of performance in SQL Server. When indexing is correctly combined with compression (Enterprise only feature), you can gain significant advantages. During this session, we will demo how to query dynamic management views (DMVs) to identify the right objects on which to implement compression, ways to measure performance and identify impact on memory and other resources. We will cover advanced scripts that provide details on fragmentation, memory caching & compression levels. We will also look at how someone who does not have the Enterprise Edition of SQL Server or latest edition of SQL Server can still leverage compression and gain the performance advantage using the right Flash Storage solution
