    David will discuss how Informatica’s customers have successfully extracted more value from Hadoop for all sorts of applications like targeted marketing and fraud reduction by quickly ingesting, parsing, profiling, transforming, and cleansing big data into great data.

  • Successful Application Consolidation & Migration: Data Management Best Practices Recorded: Mar 10 2015 57 mins
    Philip Russom, Research Director for Data Management, TDWI & Rob Myers, Technical Delivery Manager, Informatica
    According to Gartner, “through 2019, more than 50% of data migration projects will exceed budget and/or result in some form of business disruption due to flawed execution."(1) Furthermore, 1 in 6 large IT projects go over budget by 200%, according to a Harvard Business Review article. It is widely recognized that application migration and consolidation projects are “risky business” – high-ticket items for the corporation, with a scary chance of failing. If you are undertaking any IT modernization or rationalization project, such as consolidating applications or migrating applications to the cloud or ‘on-prem’ application, such as SAP, this webinar is a must-see.

    The webinar is going to shine the light on the critical role that data plays in the success or failure of these projects. Application data consolidation and migration is typically 30% to 40% of the application go-live effort. There is a multitude of data issues that can plague a project like this and lead to its doom, and these are not always recognized and understood early on, which is the biggest problem.

    In this webinar, Philip Russom of TDWI will walk us through the potential data pitfalls a corporation should consider when undertaking an application consolidation or migration project. Philip will share best practices for managing data in order to minimize risks and ensure on-time and on-budget delivery of these projects. Rob will discuss Informatica’s unique methodology and solution to support these best practices. Rob will also share real-life examples on how Informatica is helping customers reduce risks and complete application consolidation and migration projects on budget and on schedule.

  • How OneAmerica® is Shifting from Policy-Centric to Customer-Centric Recorded: Feb 5 2015 60 mins
    Nicolas Lance, VP Retirement Income Strategies, OneAmerica® & Naveen Sharma, Sr. Director, MDM Practice, Cognizant
    Consumers' expectations of insurance companies have changed. They expect a seamless, integrated and consistent customer experience throughout their life stages.

    What does this mean for insurance companies? They need to transform how they operate to deliver better customer experiences. CRM applications promised a 360 customer view, but never quite delivered. The fact is, not all valuable data about customers is in CRM. It's scattered across multiple policy-centric applications. And, the core customer data that should be the same across applications, isn't, which makes it difficult to reconcile.

    Join us for a webinar to hear how Nicolas Lance, VP of Retirement Income Strategies & Head of Customer Data at OneAmerica®, is leading the shift from a policy-centric to a customer-centric view to improve customer experience. Find out how OneAmerica® is using master data management (MDM) to bring together business-critical data from multiple applications, clean and enrich it, merge duplicates, and create relationships between data. Then, fuel CRM and other applications with clean, consistent, and connected customer information.

    During this webinar, Nicolas Lance from OneAmerica®, Naveen Sharma from Cognizant and Jakki Geiger from Informatica will:

    • Discuss barriers to seeing a total customer relationship view across products and channels
    • Explain how OneAmerica® is shifting from a policy-centric to a customer-centric view
    • Share the business benefits OneAmerica® expects to achieve
    • Reveal the lessons OneAmerica® has learned from this experience
  • Great Data for Great Analytics: Best Practices for Data Management Recorded: Jan 27 2015 59 mins
    Philip Russom, Research Director for Data Management, TDWI & David Lyle, VP Product Strategy, Informatica,
    The verdict is in. Data is now broadly perceived as a source of competitive advantage. No wonder many organizations view their Analytics initiative as highly strategic. Yet, many Analytics initiatives fail to deliver their promised value. Pretty visualizations and dashboards are only as good as their underlying unrefined data. Simply put: ‘garbage in-garbage out’. What is needed is great data.

    However, business leaders often fail to recognize the inherent complexities in building and maintaining a great data foundation for Analytics. Oversimplification leads to disappointing Analytics initiatives, and hence bad decision making.

    In order to deliver great data you need to:
    •Integrate data from many different systems, on-premise, in Hadoop, or in the cloud
    •Combine data from all the different data sources
    •Ensure the data is of the highest quality
    •Operationalize a repeatable process for generating and modifying reusable reports at the speed of business.

    In this webinar, hosted by David Lyle of Informatica, Philip Russom of TDWI will walk us through the potential data pitfalls, which a corporation should consider when designing a successful Analytics effort. Philip will share best practices for managing data, in order to promote an Analytics initiative that is truly based on great data. And David will discuss how Informatica can help you make better decisions with great data that’s refined, so you spend more time analyzing and less time finding and fixing data errors.

  • Analytics and Data for the Strategic CFO Recorded: Jan 7 2015 53 mins
    Myles Suer, Manager CFO Solution Informatica and Kathy Ryan, CEO and CFO of RoseRyan
    CFOs that we have talked to are increasingly reliant upon data and analytics. However, they see the production of financial and business data as impeding their move to strategic business leaders. CFOs say that they need timely, accurate data yet they find their financial and business systems get in the way. Most CFOs say their teams are still manual massaging and consolidating the financial data used for reporting. This includes the management change. These facts limit CFOs to mostly a backward facing, bean counting role. To change this, CFOs need to get control over their financial house and refocus their resources upon driving business predictability as well as a forward facing business conversation.
