Empowering the Citizen Data Scientist with Self-Service Advanced Analytics

The tsunami of valuable data has hampered the ability of the few highly skilled technologists to take advantage of it. To bridge the gap, more and more companies are providing advanced analytics tools to its super users – a group Gartner calls “citizen data scientists.” In this live, one-hour webinar, you’ll learn how democratizing data can help:

– quickly place massive data sets into a business context and provide critical insight
– more easily tap into predictive modeling and other sophisticated analyses once reserved for data technologists
– explore new methods of analyzing data that can lead to cutting-edge decision making.

  • Breaking Through The Data Bottleneck: A Customer Case Study In Agile ETL Recorded: Sep 13 2016 47 mins
    Kerry Reitnauer, Director of Solutions Architecture, Fairpoint Communications & Mark Marinelli, CTO, Lavastorm
    As a sequel to our webinar, "Breaking Through Your Data Bottleneck With Agile ETL", we’ll be exploring a case study with our customer Fairpoint Communications. Lavastorm CTO, Mark Marinelli, will be interviewing Kerry Reitnauer, Director of Solutions Architecture, at FairPoint on the challenges faced while making the transition from traditional ETL processes to Lavastorm Agile ETL.

    In this interview, they’ll discuss how Fairpoint came to the conclusion that the waterfall approach to ETL was inefficient, and how they adjusted their mindset to adopt an agile approach. They’ll specifically address how this approach accelerated projects without compromising governance, quality and accuracy.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    • A real life example of how to successfully adopt an Agile ETL approach
    • How to create collaboration across teams with mixed knowledge and technical skills
    • How to align with your business so that it provides continuous value delivery and generates ROI faster
    • How an Agile ETL foundation will allow for a more flexible, responsive data analysis, as business context and systems change
  • Building a Highly Agile, Impactful, and Respected Analytics Center of Excellence Recorded: Jun 21 2016 60 mins
    James Haight and Mark Marinelli
    If your data science team is stuck on a never-ending hamster wheel of ineffective training and business requests, or if you are now building an analytics center of excellence (CoE) then it is time to reexamine the prevailing wisdom.

    Amidst the gold rush to become a ‘data-driven’ organization, companies are rapidly setting up analytics centers of excellence. But they are doing so in a way that unwittingly prioritizes software training and procurement over tackling broader organizational challenges. To address this concern, Blue Hill Research conducted a study of top consultancies, systems integrators, and Fortune-100 companies to understand how organizations should construct analytics CoEs to retain top talent, proactively take charge of complex challenges, and lead transformative change.

    Join Blue Hill Research’s Principal Analyst James Haight and Lavastorm CTO Mark Marinelli as they discuss Blue Hill’s dedicated research into the mindset, strategies, and techniques needed to build successful analytics centers of excellence.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    - Why successful analytics CoEs define business impact first and then find technologies to augment initiatives second
    - Fundamental design principals of successful analytics CoEs used by top consultancies and Fortune 100 organizations
    - Why analytics CoEs must have an agile approach to navigate shifting business environments and how you can bring these principals into your company
  • Breaking Through Your Data Bottleneck with Agile ETL Recorded: Apr 7 2016 32 mins
    Mark Marinelli, CTO, Lavastorm
    Is your access to data via ETL channels creating a bottleneck in your business? Traditional ETL tools are exceedingly good at moving large quantities of data from one place to another repeatedly, reliably, and efficiently. For a large class of problems, where time-to-value is critical and applications need to be flexible as business requirements change, these ETL tools and waterfall projects are not a viable solution.

    Alternative technologies are now available which marry self-service data preparation with enterprise data management capabilities to accelerate value delivery and accommodate change, without reducing the scale, scope, and rigor of data analysis.

    Combined with new skills and new ways of thinking about data discovery, these new tools power a new agile process which yields more accurate results more quickly, moving beyond the traditional ETL bottleneck to an environment of continuous value delivery.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    • Where traditional ETL is and isn’t well suited to data analysis and BI projects
    • The requirements for Agile ETL - people, processes, and tools
    • How an agile approach can generate ROI more quickly, and with more trusted results
    • How agile ETL lays the foundation for more flexible, responsive data analysis in the future, as business context and systems change
  • Unleash the Power of Tableau: Scaling for the Enterprise Recorded: Jan 28 2016 60 mins
    Mark Marinelli, CTO, Lavastorm; Paul Lilford, Sr. Director, Technology & Market Intelligence, Tableau Software
    Tableau’s stunning success has empowered individuals across the enterprise to create powerful data visualization and analysis on-demand.
    However, the challenge lies in the time and effort it takes to prep data for visualization. According to James Haight of Blue Hill Research, on average data analysts spend between 50 to 60% of their time just preparing the data. In today’s data-driven environment, organizations can’t afford insight bottlenecks when it comes to getting the answers they need.

    Democratizing Data and Predictive Analytics While Ensuring Governance & Transparency

    As organizations empower more users to fully leverage advanced and predictive analytics to “democratize” their data and bring insights to the masses through interactive visual dashboards, they also need to provide enhanced data transparency, collaboration, and governance to gain broader acceptance and trust of the data.

    In our latest DSC webinar we will focus our discussion on how the combination of governed self-service data preparation, advanced analytics and data visualization can help organizations:

    •Make informed decisions faster by empowering data architects and non-technical business analysts to visually communicate data flows and business logic.
    •Improve transparency by removing the "Black Box" and provide actionable, accurate insights that all parties involved can trust.
    •Ensure governance and data quality through self-service data provisioning and embedded business rules and data sourcing.
    •Enable anyone to quickly visualize and securely share analysis through cloud-based dashboards.
