    • Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility.
      Building a multi-purpose Data Lake for Increased Business Agility. Pablo Alvarez, Director of Product Management at Denodo. Upcoming: Mar 27 2018 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    • The data contained in the data lake is too valuable to restrict its use to just data scientists. It would make the investment in a data lake more worthwhile if the target audience can be enlarged without hindering the original users. However, this is not the case today, most data lakes are single-purpose. Also, the physical nature of data lakes have potential disadvantages and limitations weakening the benefits and possibly even killing a data lake project entirely.

      A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and greater use of the data lake investment without minimizing the potential value for data science or for making it a less flexible environment. Multi-purpose data lakes are data delivery environments architected to support a broad range of users, from traditional self-service BI users to sophisticated data scientists.

      Attend this session to learn:

      * The challenges of a physical data lake
      * How to create an architecture that makes a physical data lake more flexible
      * How to drive the adoption of the data lake by a larger audience

    • Using Object Storage to Solve Unstructured Data Problems
      Using Object Storage to Solve Unstructured Data Problems Steven Hill 451 Research, Stefaan Vervaet WD, Molly Presley Quantum Recorded: Jan 25 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Business is experiencing an increased dependence on unstructured data, such as complex business documents, work products and large media files. This presents a new and growing set of challenges for IT when it comes to preserving, protecting, monitoring and managing unstructured data at scale; and it’s a problem that affects enterprises and service providers alike. We believe that object storage’s massive scalability and rich metadata capabilities supports the collection of the extended information about the data itself—in the form of metadata—to provide customizable and specific reference points for identifying the contents and automating the management of unstructured data at storage-level throughout its entire lifecycle. To document these challenges, 451 Research – in cooperation with Western Digital’s HGST division – has developed and fielded an annual survey that reaches out to a vetted group of 100 enterprise and 100 service provider customers to evaluate the current nature of the unstructured data problem. This program looks to better establish market perceptions about modern object storage, explore current use cases, and outline customer expectations based on responses to our 2017 poll.

    • Is the Traditional Data Warehouse Dead?
      Is the Traditional Data Warehouse Dead? James Serra, Data Platform Solution Architect, Microsoft Upcoming: Mar 27 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • With new technologies such as Hive LLAP or Spark SQL, do you still need a data warehouse or can you just put everything in a data lake and report off of that? No! In the presentation, James will discuss why you still need a relational data warehouse and how to use a data lake and an RDBMS data warehouse to get the best of both worlds.

      James will go into detail on the characteristics of a data lake and its benefits and why you still need data governance tasks in a data lake. He'll also discuss using Hadoop as the data lake, data virtualization, and the need for OLAP in a big data solution, and he will put it all together by showing common big data architectures.

    • Cloudify Your On Premises Data Storage
      Cloudify Your On Premises Data Storage Rob Commins, Sr. Director, Product Marketing at Tegile Systems, a Western Digital Company Recorded: Oct 17 2017 6:00 pm UTC 21 mins
    • CFOs rejoice! CEOs take to the streets in celebration! Ok, maybe it’s not quite that exciting, but did you know that you can get the best of both worlds in storage? One of the biggest challenges in storage has been paying for it. Thanks to trying to plan for exactly how much storage you need right now versus how much you need in the future, people often just overbuy with the expensive hopes that they’ll grow into it.

      You actually have a whole lot of financing options at your disposal to pay for storage, from buying to leasing to simply paying for what you use, just like the cloud. Why pay for storage that you’re never going to actually use?

      And, what happens when your storage gets too old? You buy new. What if you didn’t have to? What if you could pay a bit more in maintenance on your current system in exchange for an upgrade when the time comes?

      Join Rob Commins, Sr. Director of Product Marketing for Tegile Systems, as he takes a deep dive into:

      - Best practices for storing your data in the cloud
      - How to keep cloud storage costs to a minimum
      - How to scale data growth and storage capacity

      Speaker Bio:

      Rob Commins has been instrumental in the success of some of the storage industry's most interesting companies over the past twenty years including HP/3PAR, Pillar Data Systems, and StorageWay. At Western Digital, he leads the Data Center System's business unit's product marketing team.

    • The Data Lake for Agile Ingest, Discovery, & Analytics in Big Data Environments
      The Data Lake for Agile Ingest, Discovery, & Analytics in Big Data Environments Kirk Borne, Principal Data Scientist, Booz Allen Hamilton Upcoming: Mar 27 2018 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • As data analytics becomes more embedded within organizations, as an enterprise business practice, the methods and principles of agile processes must also be employed.

      Agile includes DataOps, which refers to the tight coupling of data science model-building and model deployment. Agile can also refer to the rapid integration of new data sets into your big data environment for "zero-day" discovery, insights, and actionable intelligence.

      The Data Lake is an advantageous approach to implementing an agile data environment, primarily because of its focus on "schema-on-read", thereby skipping the laborious, time-consuming, and fragile process of database modeling, refactoring, and re-indexing every time a new data set is ingested.

      Another huge advantage of the data lake approach is the ability to annotate data sets and data granules with intelligent, searchable, reusable, flexible, user-generated, semantic, and contextual metatags. This tag layer makes your data "smart" -- and that makes your agile big data environment smart also!
