Big Data Landscape for Databases

In this presentation, we will discuss scaling choices to Big Data, your options, decision points, and how to use existing infrastructure. Traditional relational databases like Oracle and IBM have been the de facto RDBMSs for decades. They do many things very well and are still a strong choice for high performance transactional systems, especially for data volumes below a few terabytes. However, when data volumes begin to scale, many enterprises are looking for more cost-effective alternatives.

Distributed computing (i.e., the ability to scale out on commodity hardware) is a disruptive technology underpinning the new wave of database innovators such as SQL-on-Hadoop, NoSQL and NewSQL solutions. These solutions can offer a dramatic price/performance improvement over legacy databases. Incumbent database vendors have faced threats to their dominance in the past, but it is different this time, because of the volume, velocity, and variety of data growth.

In this presentation we will cover an overview of the Big Data landscape with a focus on scale out architectures.

  • Becoming Data Driven: Building the Foundation of Digital Success Recorded: Oct 25 2017 54 mins
    Nigel Turner
    Many organisations aspire to become digital, data driven enterprises. In these organisations data is viewed as a critical asset, both to generate new digitally based products and services, and to guide and improve business operations and decision making. But many companies are failing to live up to this aspiration. They struggle to develop and implement data strategies that align with, and help to deliver, new business strategies.


    This webinar will explore what becoming ‘data driven’ really means, examines some of the reasons why many organisations are failing to realise their ambitions, and propose ways of overcoming the challenges. Key to these is a strong emphasis on the increasingly critical importance of established data management disciplines, especially Data Governance, Data Quality and MDM, which all have a critical role to play in the digital business of the future.

    This session will explore:


    •What is a data driven organisation and how does it differ from a traditional company?
    •The main challenges of creating a data driven organisation
    •Building a data driven capability - the role of business and IT
    •The central importance of a business aligned Data Strategy and how to achieve it
    •Why a successful data strategy needs an integrated focus on Data Governance, Data Quality and MDM
  • Why is data management so important? Recorded: Oct 10 2017 58 mins
    Sue Geuens
    Sue Geuens, president of DAMA International draws on her years of experience of managing data and elaborates on some of the most important reasons for actively managing data.
  • And They All Lived Happily Ever After- Fairy Tales, Parables and Data Recorded: Jan 13 2017 32 mins
    Katherine O'Keefe
    Once upon a time, data, information, values, and lessons were all communicated by spoken word. Narrative was used to encode and shape data, quality control the transmission of the message, and keep the story alive.

    That's the simple version. Dr Katherine O'Keefe is an expert in the use of fairy tales and the narrative patterns of folklore in literature. She uses these skills to help data governance clients figure out why their data-driven happy ending hasn't happened yet.

    What you will learn:

    The links between fairy tales and data management taxonomies
    The differences between fairy tales and parables and the narrative patterns that drive good yarns
    The link between stories, communication, and change management
    How to reinterpret classic narratives to teach valuable data governance lessons.
  • Developing Information Apprenticeships: The Castlebridge Experience Recorded: Dec 16 2016 49 mins
    Daragh O Brien & Katherine O'Keefe
    There is a skill shortage everywhere. This session looks at how Castlebridge has begun to develop our own internal "apprenticeship" model for data professionals. This is a development that arose by accident more than design, and there are a number of key lessons in relation to a) skill profiling b) growing resource vs buying resource , c) long term sustainability of teams, and d) the role of organisations like DAMA and volunteering with DAMA in developing Information Apprentices
  • Getting Ready for GDPR Post-Brexit: Issues, Risks, & Opportunities Recorded: Dec 2 2016 46 mins

  • Information Ethics: Understanding & Implementing Ethical Approaches Recorded: Nov 18 2016 44 mins
    Katherine O'Keefe & Daragh O Brien
    Ethics is the new black in Information Management these days, or so it seems. From the European Data Protection Supervisor publishing an Opinion on Big Data Ethics, to countless articles about the call from data scientists for clarity on ethics, there is a growing consensus that "something must be done". The challenge arises in moving from abstract discussion to practical application. In this webinar, Katherine O'Keefe builds on themes from her presentations at EDBI and EDW to explain how Ethical Enterprise Information Management (E2IM) is the "coming wave" that we all need to learn how to ride.

  • Enabling Cloud-Native Elastic Data Warehousing Recorded: Jul 12 2016 46 mins
    Kent Graziano, Senior Technical Evangelist for Snowflake Computing
    Reinventing the Data Warehouse
    Snowflake Computing is a team of data professionals changing how people use data. Our mission: to safely store, transform and analyze business data, making it easy for everyone to quickly gain insight. Founded with a vision to reinvent the data warehouse for big data, we built a completely new SQL data warehouse designed for the cloud and for today’s needs.
    We started with a clear vision: a data warehouse should make it easy to bring together all your data and make it available to all of the users and systems that need to analyze it. Because conventional data warehouses and big data solutions are increasingly struggling to do that, we took a new approach: we reinvented the data warehouse from the cloud up for today’s data and analytics. The result: a data warehouse that is more flexible, scalable, and easy to use than anything else available.
    This webinar will introduce you to the concepts and architecture behind the Snowflake Elastic Data Warehouse along with use cases and success stories.
  • THE LAW OF 80/20: HOW TO GET YOUR CRM DATA RIGHT Recorded: Jun 23 2016 44 mins
    NIGEL TURNER, Principal Consultant EMEA, Global Data Strategy
    Many Customer Relationship Management (CRM) implementations fail to realise their promised benefits. The most common cause of failure is poor data quality, often the result of ineffective data governance and accountability. Poorly managed data leads to bad customer experience, undermines marketing and selling activities, causes brand damage and can create legal and regulatory compliance difficulties. Ultimately it can also undermine confidence and trust in any CRM system. Any CRM process or platform can only ever be as good as the data which supports it, but this simple truth is all too often forgotten.

    Getting the data foundation right is essential for any successful CRM platform. This webinar will highlight how to achieve this. It will cover:
     Why fit for purpose data is an essential bedrock of CRM
     What can happen when CRM data is not fit for purpose
     Why do problems occur?
     How to get it right – strategies for CRM data success
     The future – it’s already started
     Key do’s and don’ts
     Summary messages and learning points

  • Data Modelling is NOT just for DBMS’s Recorded: May 12 2016 45 mins
    Christopher Bradley CDMP Fello
    What’s the point of data modelling?
    We don’t need models as we use packages
    We’re an agile shop, no need for models.
    We don’t build custom DBMS’s so don’t need Data models.

    Ever hear any of these? Unfortunately, these and other similar comments are heard across organisations worldwide.
    In part the problem is the way in which Data modelling has been taught with its focus on the development of technical solutions.

    This webinar with describe why Data modelling is NOT just for use in DBMS design, in fact it hasn’t been for a long time. Also how the techniques we learned in the 70’s and 80’s for the pre-relational era are useful again now, and why data models are essential for COTS package implementation.
