    • Video interview: The modern data lake - Operationalising Big Data for everyone
      Video interview: The modern data lake - Operationalising Big Data for everyone Richard Neale, EMEA Director, Birst Recorded: Nov 14 2016 3:00 pm UTC 4 mins
    • Listen to our interview at Big Data LDN with Richard Neale, EMEA Director at Birst.

      Companies have embraced the concept of the data lake or data hub to serve their data storage and data-driven application needs. However, gaps remain in the maturity and capability of the Hadoop stack, leaving organisations struggling with how to reap the benefits of these data lakes and how to create analytic applications that deliver value to end users.

      For data lakes to succeed, organisations need to learn and understand the differences between these big data scenarios:
      1. Data discovery and exploratory analysis
      2. Analytic applications and operationalisation of analytics across the enterprise

      Richard will examine these two scenarios, where and when each one is appropriate, and how to mature from one to the other..

    • Build a Custom Ohai Plugin
      Build a Custom Ohai Plugin Franklin Webber, Training Team Lead, Chef Recorded: Feb 1 2017 6:00 pm UTC 62 mins
    • The Chef client uses a tool called Ohai to gather data about a node. For example, by default, Ohai collects a node’s platform, platform version, and IP address. The data Ohai collects is stored on the Chef server and can be used for reporting, troubleshooting, and in your recipes. However, Ohai’s real power lies in its plugin interface. You can build custom Ohai plugins that help you to create dynamic recipes and that augment the amount of information you collect about a node.

      In this webinar, Franklin Webber, Training and Technical Content Lead at Chef, will explain Ohai’s plugin structure, walk through the core Ohai plugins, and show you how to build and test a custom plugin. Finally, he’ll talk about some further refinements you can add to the implementation.

      Join us to learn about:
      - Ohai’s plugin structure
      - How to build an Ohai plugin as well as how to write appropriate unit and integration tests
      - Resources that allow you to refine how you run Ohai

      Who should attend:
      - Cookbook developers

    • Successfully Marketing to LGBT Audiences
      Successfully Marketing to LGBT Audiences Thomas Roth and David Paisley, Community Marketing, Inc. Recorded: Jan 26 2017 6:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • While single and all-inclusive messages to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) people can be quite effective, in many ways there is no "LGBTQ community." In some cases, the most authentic and productive connections are made when segments within the community are recognized and addressed. Some companies and organizations may be able to be all things to all LGBTQ people, and for those companies, a singular message may suffice. But for most, that approach will not yield maximum results.

      Join Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and his special guests from Community Marketing & Insights (CMI), for this free one-hour webinar. CMI President Tom Roth, and Research Director, David Paisley, will lead this discussion. Tom and David will inform participants about the differences within the LGBTQ communities from a research and outreach perspective, and how to successfully connect with the communities that present the best "match" for their products and services.

      Webinar participants will obtain a high-level understanding of “LGBTQ” as a market; gain insights into nuanced differences within LGBTQ market segments; and learn how to authentically approach appropriate LGBTQ segments, and successfully leverage these opportunities into results.

    • Understanding Highly Available and Scalable Real-Time Data Processing
      Understanding Highly Available and Scalable Real-Time Data Processing Fabio Marinelli Senior Middleware Architect, Red Hat Recorded: Jan 4 2017 8:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • Recognizing important patterns in data, as they occur in real time, is critical to today’s enterprises. With complex event processing (CEP), organizations can recognize, understand, and react to business events faster by processing large volumes of inbound data.

      Many critical CEP workloads require solutions that tolerate the failure of one or more processing nodes, while easily scaling to handle growing workloads. They must process a high volume, velocity, and variety of inbound data, infer the context, and take appropriate action in real time while adhering to stringent availability and scalability service level agreements.

      In this on demand webcast, you'll learn:
      • How an in-memory data grid can become the distributed working memory of a CEP engine, allowing it to scale dynamically from 2 to 100s of nodes and handle failure scenarios
      • How sharding and data affinity can be used to obtain extreme performance
      • How a message queuing platform can be used to optimize the distribution of data to multiple CEP engines
      • Which use-cases are well suited to high-availability CEP

    • Driving Continuous Delivery of Global Content
      Driving Continuous Delivery of Global Content Dave Ruane of Xplanation, and Joe Gelb of Zoomin Software Upcoming: Mar 8 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Continuous delivery has become an umbrella term for any regular and repeatable content and product development process that has an agile approach under the engine. For some organizations, continuous delivery is cycled daily, and content gets checked in, picked up, and published every day. In other cases, the content is only published when appropriate exit criteria are met.

      More often that not, continuous delivery practices are driven by customer experience strategies. In simple terms, organizations want content consumers to have the right content when they need it. Evolving continuous delivery practices means progressively reducing the lag time for content time-to-market.

      To do this well, each content drop point has to be easy to globalize in context, source language, and the transport media. How do organizations do this? What are the current challenges with this process? And why is it important for content professionals?

      Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, for this free, one-hour webinar on March 8 at 8 am PT. My guests will be Dave Ruane, Enterprise Business Development Director for EMEA at Xplanation, and Joe Gelb, President of Zoomin Software.

      You’ll learn why some of the world’s biggest brands are leveraging a repeatable, systematic and streamlined approach to content production that helps them drastically reduce costs and time-to-market and deliver global content continuously. You'll discover what steps you'll need to make to get started. And, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists.
