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.

IDC forecast a ten-fold increase on business data processed compared to today. Combine this with increasing regulatory compliance and demand for quality data, then it is perhaps not a surprise to find that many are feeling somewhat over-whelmed by the enormity of the data management and governance task. Don’t despair, there is a compelling business case, both in terms of efficiency gains and tangible financial savings in adopting a strategy for centralising information governance and automating the management of your data.
This presentation will explore the emerging problem domain of data and look at the business case for use of automated data management tools to better prepare your organisation for the tsunami of data coming its way.
Unstructured data is a growing threat to corporate compliance and budgets.
The exponential expansion and distribution of unstructured documents and data, impacts the security of sensitive data and organisational efficiency. Word, PDF, PowerPoint, CAD, OCR, etc. documents may contain PII data, company IP or other sensitive details. Unstructured data makes up 80%+ of enterprise data and is growing at over 55% per annum. At least half that data is “dark” data outside the corporate document management systems. The Inforeye solution enables you to understand your unstructured document landscape. If you do not know what you have or where it is, you cannot find it or protect it.
Applying AI and ML to unstructured documents enables you teach a machine to think like a human (only faster and more accurately). It understands the essence of a document – not only what it contains, but what it is. Without programming, it finds hidden content (PII, etc.) or document types (contracts, HR evaluations, etc.).
Cloud Migrations, GDPR & Libor Transition are just three of the topics demanding smarter, repeatable document analysis.
Are you planning to start a data governance program or have started one and want to know how to evolve it? A data governance maturity model might provide you with solutions.

Lucy runs an education programme called Nurture which bridges the gap between academia and industry. This year she worked with 11 universities and 80 students all studying Data Science. As part of their study they need to complete a live project which forms the basis of their dissertation. Lucy facilitates the projects and help the students get the internships and coaches them along the way.
We are very passionate about education here at Eden Smith and so much so we are building an education platform which will encompass an academy, Technical Training, Outreach and online learning. We feel by taking the time today to help the next generation, we are building up a fantastic network of people that we will want to collaborate with in the future.
We will hear from 2 MSc students that have now been placed with LGIM and JustPark. They will talk about how the internship helped them succeed, what they learnt and what they wish to pass onto the next generation coming through.

Introducing Data Governance in any sector is challenging. in UK Higher Education, it is especially challenging. In this webinar, Alex Leigh will discuss why universities have different kinds of problems to other sectors, how data governance can help to resolve them, and what strategies can be successful for deployment and sustainability of a light touch framework and approach
The next Master Data Management (MDM) webinar will focus on the effect that MDM has in ensuring that a Data Governance (DG) strategy comes to life. Many organizations have a great Data Governance strategy but struggle with buy in. Equally, many organizations have a great desire to resolve Data Quality issues, harmonize data across the enterprise, de-duplicate data and drive data ownership using technology. Could the two, DG and MDM, be the perfect combination to deliver the necessary solution that meets the business strategies? Josiah Kimani of Profisee will be answering this question

“I have never used a tool with clients that has been so universally and successfully adopted” Silos, Politics & Turf Wars by Patrick Lencioni.
Data is an asset is no longer a cliché. However, business data needs to be owned, managed, secured and fit for purpose within the context of organisational challenges, complexities, culture, politics and operational priorities which can define if any Data Management team succeed or fail.
Years in the trenches delivering Data Management as a business capability into a multi-billion pound programme with organisational complexities - there are ten tips I would like to share with you which are fundamental in the successful delivery of any data management program.
I do profoundly believe they are simple but very important and it is worth knowing - probably not universally and successfully adopted in any organisations.
They are not in any particular order but for any Data Management team and program to be successful – I strongly recommend their consideration with a clear strategy to develop and embed them within the organisation.

Have you mapped your personal data supply chain yet?
In this joint webinar between DAMA UK and DAMA Ireland, Ken will explain how smart businesses are using the DataValueMap.com (from Cork University Business School) to visually map their personal data supply chain and extract business value in the process.
The DataValueMap.com is a paper based, tech free, silo busting business tool that helps business managers build a shared understanding of any data initiative.
It's perfect for enabling business people to quickly sketch how critical information (such as personal data in the case of GDPR) flows through their business.
To be successful at Data Architecture, organisations have always needed to understand what data they have, why they have it, how they use it, where it is, how it got there, and what happened to it along the way - forming a 'pipeline' of information. Very often, this pipeline is managed and documented using a mish-mash of tools and methodologies, often resulting in conflicting and contradictory information, making it difficult for Data Governance to be effective.
In this webcast, George McGeachie will demonstrate the key features of SAP PowerDesigner that support the pipeline. A set of requirements and business rules, and an existing Conceptual Data Model, will be used to create Logical and Physical Data Models. This will include the generation of JSON structures from both Logical and Physical Data Models.
Some of what you will see is not out-of-the-box - it has been built using PowerDesigner's powerful customisation features.
