Big Data Essentials: Removing the Skills Barrier

We’ve all heard the hype around Big Data and how it will transform business and impact our lives. While the promise of Big Data tempts many organizations to start the journey with Hadoop there are barriers along the way that become roadblocks to achieving their business goals. The top challenge companies’ face is finding and retaining Big Data resource skills to staff their projects.

Most data scientists and analytics professionals acknowledge that 80% of the work in a Big Data project involves accessing, integrating, and preparing the data for analysis. Therefore, in order to remove the Big Data resource skills barrier it is imperative to invest in a flexible and comprehensive data integration platform. The data integration platform should make it easy and cost-effective to process large amounts of data of any type at any latency and support modern scalable data architectures that include Hadoop.

You will learn in this Big Data Essentials webinar about:

- Necessary resource skills and processes in a Big Data analytics organization
- A flexible and comprehensive Big Data integration platform architecture
- How to leverage readily available skills to be up to 5 times more productive on Hadoop

  • Relieve the "Stress" of CCAR and DFAST Compliance Recorded: Dec 1 2016 61 mins
    Richard Matts, Former CDO, BNP Paribas; David Goldberg, Principal, Xoriant; Peter Ku, Industry Consulting, Informatica
    While this year’s Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) testing is behind us, it does not mean the industry is in the clear when it comes to quality data and efficiently resolving a variety of data-related issues. Despite investments in formal data governance programs, banks are far from streamlining and eliminating data quality issues that can affect existing risk management and regulatory reporting activities.

    Mandates from CCAR and BCBS239 demand tremendous data governance and IT Infrastructure to support core business functions and prevailing regulatory requirements. It requires solutions which support effective data governance and stewardship to ensure the business has the data that is “fit for use” and “highly accurate” in today’s exceedingly regulated banking industry.

    Join BNP Paribas, Informatica, and Xoriant to learn:

    • The biggest data sourcing challenges banks are facing with CCAR and BCBS 239 and why
    • Best practices on how to effectively deal with data issues across your data governance and data management practices
    • Xoriant’s CCAR data quality and remediation solutions and services
    • Informatica’s platform solution for enterprise risk management and compliance

    Who should attend?

    • Banks who are currently or will be subject to CCAR/BCBS 239
    • Key data governance players (e.g. Chief Data Officers, CCAR Project and Program Managers responsible for reporting on data sourcing and issue management)
    • Risk and compliance personnel (e.g. CCAR/DFAST Project team members)
    • Enterprise, Information, and Data Architects working in the banking sector
  • 4 Steps to Clean Your Contact Data Across All Apps Recorded: Nov 17 2016 23 mins
    Donal Dunne, Chris Phillips
    Powering Your Marketing and Sales Applications with Clean Data. “According to 92 percent of marketing and sales influencers surveyed, having valid contact data to work with is “very important” for their marketing and sales success.” (Source: Ascend2). Positioned as a leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Data Quality Tools for the ninth consecutive year, Informatica is now offering an innovative, new approach to improving data quality designed specifically to turn this situation around: Cloud Data Quality Radar.

    Without clean data, you can’t communicate and engage effectively with your customers and prospects - This directly impacts marketing campaign effectiveness, sales productivity and the customer experience.

    One of the biggest challenges sales and marketing organizations face is that data decays over time - people move houses, switch jobs, or change their phone numbers. When combined with the fact that data is captured from an ever increasing number of sources and is used in different ways, the problem becomes exponentially worse.

    Informatica Cloud Data Quality Radar is a cloud application that quickly identifies, fixes, and monitors data quality problems in your business applications like Salesfroce and Marketo. Attend this short webinar to hear how you can:

    •Easily identify and visualize data quality issues within your applications – and drive increased confidence in data
    •Automatically fix the most impactful data quality problems sooner - while reducing reliance on IT for data quality related activities
    •Continuously monitor data quality across source systems
