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.

The use of an emerging data fabric, offers enterprises a number of benefits and advantages including the ability to break through the gravitational pull of legacy data architectures and capture the full potential of all your data.
This webinar will detail how the deployment of a data fabric can enable enterprises to more quickly and easily scale across data volumes, data types and locations. The session will also provide an overview on how a data fabric reduces storage costs and increases application agility and reliability – with the underpinning to support the successful pursuit of:
* IoT through a data fabric’s capability of handling data flows from the edge to the cloud, centralizing learning, and distributing intelligence back to the edge for real-time responsiveness.
* Machine Learning/AI with the fabric able to handle the complex data flows and logistics to support the rapid deployment and coordination across machine learning models, algorithms and analytic tools
* Microservices and containers with the underlying data fabric able to support intelligent streams and support the mobility and flexibility for elastic stateful applications and analytic processes relying on shared data.
EU: General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The clock is ticking and it’s time to act as Europe’s most demanding and far reaching Data Security regulation to date has been published. This webinar from Informatica’s Data Security Team will examine the key requirements of GDPR, and look at how we can use new Data Intelligence capabilities to be in control of our sensitive data assets.
During the Webinar there will be a demonstration of Informatica’s Secure@Source technology that swept the board at the recent Info Security awards, specifically to demonstrate how it’s now possible within a single view to find, and track all the GDPR qualifying data across the organisation, to see who’s using it and what security controls are in place to protect it. This ability to visualise the movement and control of sensitive data will be the critical key to an effective GDPR strategy. This is not a regulation that anyone can afford to ignore, and for those who get it wrong the compensation and regulatory fines could be on a par with the current cost of PPI to the banks ! Join us and get ahead of the game.

Data Management Platforms (DMPs) have helped marketers improve digital advertising in the last 10 years by providing easy access to 3rd party global audience segments, but smart marketers have realized that this isn’t enough.
Modern marketers are now looking for ways to incorporate 1st party data into their entire marketing strategy but the problem is that this data is frequently siloed and challenging to access/analyze fast enough to keep up with market demands.
The solution is a Customer Data Platform (CDP) which is a new system - recently recognized by Gartner - that works in harmony with existing marketing technology to connect internal 1st party data, with external 2nd or 3rd party data.
Join us for our webinar and you will learn:
- How to leverage your most valuable asset - 1st party data - to maximize your programmatic advertising impact.
- The common pitfalls of working only with 2nd and 3rd party data
- Gain a deep understanding why it’s crucial to unify 1st party data for holistic customer insights as well as activation.
- Why a Customer Data Platform is essential to integrate 1st party data with your Data Management Platform.
In financial services, the top big data analytics use cases include customer analytics to understand customer journey using data from all customer interaction channels, predict and avoid customer churn, and fraud and compliance. The financial and corporate benefits of these use cases range from improving customer retention, to hundreds of millions of dollars in incremental revenue and protection of shareholder value.
In this webinar, learn from big data analytics experts:
- Top 3 use cases in financial services
- The importance of applying the appropriate technologies
- The data driven insights that will give companies a competitive edge
Data science is a domain which promises to convert the available data in actionable insights. This could translate in huge wins for the organizations both in financial terms (higher revenues, reduce costs) but also in terms of better services for the customers with more tailored products and a personalized and improved customer experience.
But how to get those results out from the initial intuitions of statisticians and scientists to the customers? What is the best way to translate those solutions in production-level APIs and services? How to asses the quality of data-driven algorithms? These are very concrete concerns for anyone who wishes to operationalize data science into data-driven products.
This webinar will describe a number of techniques and patterns to monitor and deploy data models and to stay in control of predictive, data-driven services.
How confident are you about successfully using Hadoop for your data management needs? Despite 60-80% of organizations experimenting with new big data technologies, only a few have been able to successfully extract value sustainably.

Data is collected in IoT solutions for a purpose - it is transformed into information which is subsequently used to produce actionable insights.
The three primary types of IoT data, in order of volume, are:
- Time based (time series, time interval), e.g. power, voltage, current, temperature and humidity
- Geospatial, e.g. person/device location
- Asset specific data
These types of data have special characteristics that need to be catered to. Join this webinar with Cloud Technology Partners Joey Jablonski, VP of Big Data & Analytics and Ken Carroll, VP of IoT, as they discuss some important aspects of how such data can be ingested, modeled, stored and used in IoT solutions.
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is only a year away, and many organisations are still trying to understand what this new regulation means to them, and their data governance practices.
Join us for the third in a series of webinars which focus on how organisation's can begin to action GDPR - this short session is all about data privacy by de-identifying, de-sensitizing and anonymizing sensitive data with Informatica’s Data Masking tools.
In the context of GDPR, Data Masking tackles several critical requirements by protecting and preserving the privacy of customer/employee data. Persistent Masking creates ‘Pseudonymised data’ which replaces the original sensitive data with new values, but critically retaining both contextually and referentially integrity. Alternatively, for production environments Dynamic Masking preserves the original data format, but strictly limits who can see the data. This control of access to sensitive data is essential under GDPR, as a breach of sensitive data can also be deemed to have taken place if employees without business processing cause have access to and visibility of that data.
Increasingly Data Masking is also becoming the best practice approach to enacting “The Right to Erasure”, in this session we will discuss why this is the case, and how this approach to Erasure contrasts with a Data removal approach.
This session will cover:
- Persistent & Dynamic Data Masking
o What they are
o When to use them
o What they are delivering for a GDPR project
- How Masking can deliver Erasure
- Live Demo of Informatica’s Data Masking
Data in the real-world is almost always dirty, incomplete, scattered or inconsistent. For data scientists, 'janitor work' is a key hurdle to data insights.
