    • Jana's Data Warehousing Story: Then vs. Now Jana's Data Warehousing Story: Then vs. Now Craig Lancaster, Jana; Mike Ruiz, Amazon Web Services; Jon Bock, Snowflake Computing Recorded: Dec 10 2015 7:00 pm UTC 54 mins
    • Jana's mission is to bring internet access to over a billion people in emerging markets via mobile applications. Already driving more than 3.8 billion MB of app usage, Jana needed a scalable and cost-effective solution to process and analyze that data.

      Snowflake and AWS are helping Jana keep up with the demands of processing and analyzing that rapidly growing stream of data. Using Amazon S3 and the Snowflake Elastic Data Warehouse, Jana processes and analyzes app usage data in a high-performance, scalable way without the cost and complexity of other solutions.

      Join us to learn:

      - How Jana made the transition from MySQL to a cloud data warehouse
      - The data pipeline that Jana designed to move data from source to analysts
      - The benefits Jana realized as a result of moving to a cloud infrastructure and data warehouse

      Who should attend?

      Data scientists, analysts, and anyone who needs to understand how to make critical data rapidly available - without capital expenditures.

    • Just-in-Time Data Warehousing on Databricks: CDC and Schema On Read Just-in-Time Data Warehousing on Databricks: CDC and Schema On Read Jason Pohl Recorded: Mar 7 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    • In this webcast, Jason Pohl, Solution Engineer from Databricks, will cover how to build a Just-in-Time Data Warehouse on Databricks with a focus on performing Change Data Capture from a relational database and joining that data to a variety of data sources. Not only does Apache Spark and Databricks allow you to do this easier with less code, the routine will automatically ingest changes to the source schema.

      Highlights of this webinar include:
      1. Starting with a Databricks notebook, Jason will build a classic Change Data Capture (CDC) ETL routine to extract data from an RDBMS.

      2. A deep-dive into selecting a delta of changes from tables in an RDBMS, writing it to Parquet, querying it using Spark SQL.

      3. Demonstrate how to apply a schema at time of read rather than before write

    • Demystifying Elastic Data Warehousing: Featuring TDWI and Snowflake Demystifying Elastic Data Warehousing: Featuring TDWI and Snowflake Philip Russom, TDWI Research Director Recorded: Jan 26 2016 5:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • In recent years, some users have harbored concerns about clouds in general, as well as their use in data warehousing. As the number of user organizations practicing elastic data warehousing on clouds has increased, the track record of success has helped other users get past perceptual barriers and other myths concerning security, multi-tenancy, and interfacing with clouds.

      We all know that data warehouses and users’ best practices for them are changing dramatically today. As users build new data warehouses and modernize established ones, they are turning to cloud-based elastic data warehousing, because the automation of elasticity yields agility, ease of use, scalability, and performance, while reducing maintenance, tuning, capital investments, and other costs.

      This webinar will:

      - Demystify elastic data warehousing by debunking myths about it

      - Define elastic data warehousing and its goals in terms that data management professionals and business users can relate to

      - Show how cloud-based data-driven tools and platforms have proved themselves, such that users are now more comfortable adopting them

      - Discuss the real-world benefits of data warehousing, data management, and analytics on elastic clouds

      - Explain how data warehousing solutions built to leverage the full capabilities of an elastic cloud can satisfy new requirements for analytics, big data, data streams, and multi-structured data

    • Leveraging Data for Effective Data Visualization Leveraging Data for Effective Data Visualization Lyndsay Wise - Research Director of BI and Data Warehousing at EMA Recorded: Sep 9 2015 4:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • Data visualization tools empower Business Analysts to synthesize millions of variables and piles of spreadsheets into functional dashboards. Unfortunately, in many companies, the need for better data is not part of the drive for better dashboards.

      The reality is, today’s data visualization tools are only as good as the data they reflect. Helping users consolidate, transform and deliver the most accurate and up-to-date information is critical to leveraging your dashboards and the data behind them. In this live webinar, you’ll learn:

      •Ÿ actionable steps to improving data prep for data visualization
      •Ÿ why agile data governance and management is key to data visualization success
      •Ÿ strategies for adopting an agile, self-service approach to data access, analytics and visualization.

      Lyndsay Wise joined EMA in 2015 as Research Director for Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Warehousing, focusing on data integration, data governance, cloud technologies, data visualization, analytics, and collaboration.
