  • Bringing Clarity to Analytics Projects with Decision Modeling: A Case Study Recorded: Feb 2 2017 57 mins
    James Taylor, IIA Expert in Decision Management Systems
    To succeed, an analytics or data science team must effectively engage with business experts who are often inexperienced with advanced analytics, machine learning and data science. They need a framework for connecting business problems to possible analytics solutions. Decision modeling brings clarity to analytics projects, linking analytics solutions to business problems to deliver value.
    In this webinar, IIA Expert James Taylor shares four key lessons learned by the central analytics team at a global leader in information technology. These lessons underscore that decision modeling builds a shared understanding with their business clients, revives projects that have lost their purpose, brings clarity to problems long thought difficult and delivers value quickly. The webinar will also introduce the basics of decision modeling and provide practical recommendations for adoption. A Leading Practice Brief based on this case study will be available for all registrants.
    Ensuring analytics projects have clarity of purpose is critical to delivering business value. Learn how decision modeling helps a leading organization bring focus to its data science and analytic investments.

    IIA Research Director, Dan Magestro, PhD and moderated by Client Success Manager, Allison Park.
    One of the most pressing issues facing analytics programs in every industry is the frequent disconnect between analytics activities and the business’s stated strategic priorities. This disconnect has many causes, including the lack of visibility into high-level priorities, inability to translate strategic needs into analytics projects, and the historical lack of analytics in the strategy development process itself.

    Based on best practices gleaned from dozens of companies, IIA Research Director, Dan Magestro will share three paths to success with practical recommendations for how to align analytics activities to a business’s strategic objectives, including the formation of oversight committees, more effective project prioritization, alignment of senior business leadership, and demonstrated benefits of incorporating analytics into the strategic planning process.

  • The Industrial Internet of Things: Rise of the Machines Recorded: Sep 22 2016 61 mins
    IoT expert, Bill Roberts and IIA Research Director, Dan Magestro
    Presented by IoT expert, Bill Roberts, this webinar explores how the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is having a dramatic impact on how manufacturers and service providers operate. From the factory floor to a distributed energy generation facility to anywhere a critical piece of equipment operates, machine data holds enormous potential to drive high levels of operational efficiency and unlock new service innovations.  This blending of operational technologies (OT) with Information Technology (IT) has created challenges with the data, the analytics lifecycle and a deep thinking into the roles of personnel.  A robust IoT analytics lifecycle can play a critical role in helping organizations separate the relevant signals from the noise in IIoT data, gain real time critical insights, and drive appropriate, timely action to realize the promised value of IIoT.  This session will explore these topics and offer insights on pursuing a successful industrial IoT strategy that leverages a robust analytics lifecycle.

  • Tightening the Reins on Credit Risk Modeling Recorded: Aug 25 2016 55 mins
    Laurent Birade and John Voigt of SAS and Dan Magestro, IIA Research Director
    Many financial institutions recognize that they still do not have sufficient data management, infrastructure, or staffing in place to address all the issues brought about by the myriad of risk regulations. While larger banks continue to struggle with the qualitative aspects of supervisory stress testing and capital planning, IFRS 9 and the new CECL accounting standard will demand greater interconnection of Finance and Risk, more complex modeling, and increased public disclosure. Heightened expectations of strong model risk management and governance further strain organizations.

    To address these challenges, institutions are reexamining existing processes with a goal to establish a more efficient and controlled modeling environment—including model implementation and lifecycle management, orchestration, and governance. How can financial institutions ensure they have the foundational building blocks in place to meet these increasing demands?
  • Self Service Data Management for Analytics Users Across the Enterprise Recorded: Aug 10 2016 60 mins
    Ken Pikulik and Bob Matsey from Teradata Corporation
    With the proliferation of analytics expanding across every function of the enterprise, the need for broader access to data by experienced data scientists and non-technical users to produce reports and make discovery is growing exponentially.

    The unintended consequences of this trend is a bottleneck within IT to deliver the necessary data while still maintaining the governance and data security standards required to safeguard this critical corporate asset.

    This presentation will illustrate how organizations are solving this challenge and enabling users to both access larger quantities of existing data as well as add new data to their own models without negatively impacting the quality, security or cost to store that data. It will also highlight some of the cost and performance benefits achieved by enabling self-service data management.
