Data is variously heralded as the new oil, the currency of the digital economy, and the lifeblood of business. But the companies that are truly changing the economy are those that are most progressive in thinking differently about data, like the Ubers of this world. In reality, most businesses have a wealth of data but simply haven’t grasped the idea that data could become their raison d’être. In this stimulating session, discover how to overcome the cultural as well as technological challenges that stand in the way of positively impacting the bottom line through data – and your business becoming renowned as an innovation pioneer.

Analytics answers questions and suggests new paths to success. However, to be sure of those insights you need to be sure of your data. See how Information Builders technology allows you to consume, manage, validate, and publish data for analytical and operational purposes while supporting business objectives and informing business users.

Every single item on a company mission statement relates to data at some level. It is from the position of data expertise that the mission will be executed and company leadership will emerge. The data professional is absolutely sitting on the performance of the company in this information economy and has an obligation to demonstrate the possibilities and originate the architecture, data and projects that will deliver. After all, no matter what business you’re in, you’re in the business of information.
Organizations today need to take advantage of the numerous relevant data platforms to which they provision their data. Platforming the data correctly is a key indicator of workload success. This leaves the progressive organization with more data platforms than ever before and with a clear need to make them all work together. Throw in multiple clouds and the data integration challenge moves exponentially. Data integration is at an all-time high in terms of need and shows no signs of abating.
The speaker will share from experience some of the hallmarks of mature, leading data and data integration environments that leaders will be guiding their data environments towards in the next few years, with the goal of helping true data leadership emerge.

Data monetization is about harvesting direct financial results from having access to data that is stored, maintained, categorized and made accessible in an optimal manner. Traditionally data management & analytics has contributed indirectly to financial outcome by aiming at keeping data fit for purpose in the various business processes that produced value to the business. Today the best performers are using data much more directly to create new services and business models.
In this webinar, Henrik Gabs Liliendahl, a seasoned data management consultant, along with Rado Kotorov, Information Builders’ data monetization expert will explain how you can adapt data management practices and use technology wisely to monetize on the data within your reach.
Wayne Eckerson | Eckerson Group Porter Thorndike | Information Builders
Embedded analytics is not new, but the technology for integrating charts, reports, dashboards, and self-service tools has evolved considerably in the past 30 years. Formerly, only software vendors embedded analytical tools into applications, but now organizations in every industry are doing so to cement ties with customers and suppliers, define a “digital identity”, and even monetize data assets. In this webinar, Wayne Eckerson, Founder and Principal Consultant will cover:
- The definition of embedded analytics
- Applications and use cases for embedded analytics
How can you take advantage of predictive and prescriptive analytics for improving your business models? In this webinar, Stephen Smith, a well-respected expert in the fields of data science, predictive analytics and their applications, will explore how you can operationalise data science to unlock the power of these predictive models.
In conjunction with Information Builders’ analytics expert, Bruce Kolodziej, we will cover the definitions and use cases of prescriptive and prescriptive analytics, and how you can implement these models to the benefit of your organisation.

IoT: beyond the hype, find the real value
The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the most-hyped sectors in technology today, with everyone from hardware providers to consulting firms offering IoT solutions. But how do you separate the hype from the reality – and determine where and if IoT delivers real value for your organization? It all starts with understanding the three “Cs” of your data – currency, clarity, and consumability. Nucleus Research VP Rebecca Wettemann will share Nucleus’s framework for understanding the potential value of IoT in your own environment; guide participants on prioritizing IoT investments based on the value of data for strategic, operational, and tactical decision making; and share best practices in choosing IoT technology partners that can help maximize returns from your IoT investment.
Thomas C. Redman | the Data Doc | Data Quality Solutions
Poor data quality is enemy number one to the widespread, profitable use of machine learning.” A scary claim. Especially because so many of us know the issue exists, but we don’t know how to address it.
In this webinar, we will first explore why the “garbage-in, garbage-out” problem in analytics and decision making has remained intractable for generations. Then we’ll explore concrete steps you can take to start getting your data quality issues under control.
You’ll also have an opportunity to ask your own questions and get expert answers gleaned from practical experience, applying hard-won lessons to the incredibly steep quality demands of machine learning. By the end of the webinar, you’ll come away with a better insight into the challenges and approaches to creating a comprehensive and well-executed data quality program.
Ian Matthews, Global BDM from NG Data and Clinton Etheridge Information Builders
In this rapidly changing regulatory environment, housing associations are scrambling to maintain their HCA grading by looking for ways to improve operational efficiency and governance.
An effective way to demonstrate this is by ensuring sensitive data is well-managed. From tenants’ perspectives, a housing association with a well-governed data source can enable them to view all of their maintenance and billing schedules in one place, rather than forcing them to contact electricity, telephony, broadband, facilities management and other service providers individually.
Focusing on data management provides the added benefit of reassuring tenants that their data is respected, well-managed, secure and accurately updated.
Listen Ian Matthews, Global BDM from NG Data and Clinton Etheridge, Senior Pre-Sales Consultant from Information Builders to gain valuable insight into proven approaches that can impact tenant experience.
Information is only good if it’s used – and what better way to use it than to put it directly into the workflow of the people who need it? Whether you embed business intelligence (BI) and analytics into the Salesforce.com portal, into a customer-facing application, or into the operational applications that your employees use every day, you’ll see dramatic improvements in adoption, use, and impact of analytical content.
In this webinar, join Claudia Imhoff as she discusses the use cases, requirements, and implementation techniques needed for a successful embedded BI implementation.
Mike Ferguson Managing Director Intelligent Business Strategies Limited
For business users to produce effective analytics and insights, they depend on data they can trust. However, as more data pours into the enterprise, the data landscape is becoming more complex. Today we have data in multiple cloud systems, NoSQL databases, Data Warehouse relational databases, Hadoop systems, and a myriad of small data stores. Worse, self-service projects are often stand-alone and start by people creating their own copy of data -- which makes the generation of trusted, sharable analytics and insights a real problem.
Should we force people to use inflexible, slow-to-change ‘production’ data warehouses, or do nothing and accept the ‘side effects’ of autonomous self-service analytics?
Neither. In this webcast by industry veteran Mike Ferguson, you'll learn about the justifications, requirements, and means for creating a trusted data foundation that your entire enterprise analytics program can depend on.
David Menninger, SVP and Research Director, Ventana Research

He'll also discuss the role of data quality and master data management (MDM), mobile, and related technologies in successfully monetizing the data that you're already collecting.

I grandi sistemi di dati consentono alle organizzazioni di analizzare i dati in modi precedentemente impossibili. Ma l'analisi di grandi dati da soli raramente fornisce tutta la storia. Per ottenere una visione singola dei clienti, delle vendite e dell'utilizzo, i grandi dati dovrebbero essere integrati con i dati aziendali tradizionali. E questo richiede un approccio alla piattaforma per la gestione dei dati e l'analisi aziendale.
Partecipa a questo seminario di editori delle informazioni per ascoltare Enrico Buffa discutere su come è possibile analizzare i tuoi dati per fornire informazioni concrete sul tuo business.
