-Choose an analytics engine that will enable key analytics such as attribution, step analysis, and linear regression
-Embed visualizations into your application that drive stickiness
Deep Learning has shown a tremendous success, yet it often requires a lot of effort to leverage its power. Existing Deep Learning frameworks require writing a lot of code to work with a model, let alone in a distributed manner.
This webinar is the first of a series in which we survey the state of Deep Learning at scale, and where we introduce the Deep Learning Pipelines, a new open-source package for Apache Spark. This package simplifies Deep Learning in three major ways:
1. It has a simple API that integrates well with enterprise Machine Learning pipelines.
2. It automatically scales out common Deep Learning patterns, thanks to Spark.
3. It enables exposing Deep Learning models through the familiar Spark APIs, such as MLlib and Spark SQL.
In this webinar, we will look at a complex problem of image classification, using Deep Learning and Spark. Using Deep Learning Pipelines, we will show:
* how to build deep learning models in a few lines of code;
* how to scale common tasks like transfer learning and prediction; and
* how to publish models in Spark SQL.

In the current cyber threat landscape, organisations are looking at ways to respond as effectively as possible. This session will look at the role that can be played by OODA loops, a military concept developed to improve fighter pilots' abilities to respond in combat, it stands for Observe, Orient, Decide & Act. Companies can build these concepts into their Incident Response (IR) process to aid clarity of thinking and improve their ability to respond quickly and effectively to cyber attacks.Read more >
A security operations center (SOC) is one of the most sophisticated operation centers focused on combating cyber crime and cyber attacks. Fortune 500 companies to government agencies use this daily to monitor users, apps, data, and network for threats and vulnerabilities. But, what if you’re not a Fortune 500 company? Can you justify the expense?
Join us for a webinar on how to build a cost-effective SOC. We will discuss:
- Is a cyber SOC the right fit for you
- How to design a cyber SOC that aligns with your business security strategy

* Quickly connect your microservices to legacy or SaaS applications
* Analyze API metrics and manage appropriate policies to govern interaction patterns across the services/APIs landscape
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:

Early on in the "cloud" Werner Vogals made his famous quote "You Build It, You Run It".
With Devops we learned that this became a mantra for shared responsibility between developers and operations. Operations learned how to process infrastructure as code and participate early in the supply chain of a service's life cycle. Developers learned that they had responsibilities to enable and in some cases operationalize their service.
Now there is a new movement to include and collaborate in a similar way with Security. This is all part of an "everything" shift left ideal. Developers and operations are taught the importance of including security in the stories and all parts of the delivery pipeline including security gates as well as code test gates.
