    David Menninger, Analyst at Ventana Research, Josh Klahr, VP of Product, AtScale
    Have you conquered big data? Ventana Research reports 4 out of 5 organizations agreed analytics on big data is essential to future company success, however, in that same study, they found companies that succeeded in capturing all that data in one place didn’t always succeed in getting value out it. How can you ensure if you go ‘big data’ that you get the immediate return on your latest investment?

    Join this engaging session with David Menninger of Ventana Research as he shares:

    - Why analytics is your best bet to extract maximum value from big data (on-prem or cloud)
    - How new big data technology can complement existing platforms (no rip n replace)
    - How to capitalize on current analytics tools and skills (analysts and users, not just data scientists)
    - What you can do now, and next, to drive value from your big data (with real-life customer stories)

  • Data Flood Warning: How to Simplify Data Lake Environments Recorded: Jul 18 2017 58 mins
    Matt Aslett, Research Director at 451 Research, Lucio Daza, Technical Product Marketing Director at AtScale
    With storage costs declining over 20% in the last year, keeping your data is cheaper than throwing it away. Are you making the most effective use of your growing data lake? Depending on where you sit in your organization, the answer might be ‘no’, since every BI tool has its own requirements, and moving data to satisfy unique BI needs, takes more effort than just a file transfer.

    Join this webcast to learn why adding business logic to its architecture, Big Data environments can increase their simplicity regardless of the ingestion method.

    BI and Big Data veterans Matt Aslett, Research Director at 451 Research and Lucio Daza, Director of Technical Product Marketing at AtScale will deliver this session covering current industry trends, real use case scenarios and answering questions from the audience.

    In this webinar you will learn:

    - The ongoing challenges of data growth and how to manage it easily
    - How business logic adds value and simplicity to your Big Data environment.
    - The differences between traditional and emerging data-to-insight approaches.
  • BI on Big Data, Keys to Success for BI on Hadoop Recorded: Jun 21 2017 59 mins
    Matt Baird is CTO and co-founder of AtScale
    If you think Hadoop is not in your future, think again. According to a recent survey, 97% of organizations working with Hadoop, anticipate that they will onboard Analytics and BI workloads to Hadoop. When this happens, the companies that have disregarded the Big Data opportunity, may be left behind.

    The good news is that onboarding your Business Intelligence workloads to Hadoop is not as complicated as it used to be just a few short years ago. If you understand some key concepts, the transition can be a lot simpler and more successful - allowing you to recycle current skillsets, while avoiding both a rip and replace of your technical stack or replacement of business analysts with data scientists.

    In this interactive session, Matthew Baird, CTO and co-founder of AtScale, has Statistics and Computer Science double major from Queen’s University. He has built software and managed teams at companies like PeopleSoft, Siebel Systems and Oracle. He loves the open source movement, and building scalable, innovative enterprise software.

    *Don’t move and copy data
    *Don’t have multiple definitions of reality
    *Don’t scale up with proprietary hardware
    *Don’t lock yourself in proprietary stacks

    This session will also offer best practices on what to ‘DO’’ and a good set of rules in what Klahr calls the “Do’s and Don’ts of BI on Hadoop”.
  • What's Your Data Strategy? How Chief Data Officers Can Succeed with Big Data Recorded: Jun 20 2017 61 mins
    Jim Tyo Chief Data Officer at Nationwide, Tom Davenport Professor of Information Technology & Management at Babson College
    According to Gartner, 90% of large organizations will have hired a Chief Data Officer (CDO) by the end of next year. That’s the good news. The bad news: Gartner believes that only 50% will succeed. Do you feel you have the people, processes and technology required to become a successful CDO? This session is designed to help.

    In this engaging power session, Jim Tyo, Chief Data Officer at Nationwide and Tom Davenport, Harvard Business School, share the secrets behind building an effective “Office of the CDO”. They will focus on:

    - Hiring the right talent: what specific roles should you hire (and which ones should you avoid).
    - Establishing the right process: what practices yield the most results (and which ones will most likely cause you to fail)
    - Choosing the right technology: what technology is in, what technology is out (how you should map capabilities to ambition).

    Jim Tyo has been a Chief Data Officer for close to 10 years. Prior to Nationwide, he was CDO at large Fortune 500 companies BB&T and USAA. He brings a vast array of best practices and is a frequent keynote speaker. Tom Davenport, of Harvard Business School fame, is one of the top 3 business/technology analysts in the world and one of the 100 most influential people in the IT industry according to Fortune Magazine. He’s authored 18 books and written hundreds of articles on the topic of Business Analytics and Big Data. This session promises to be engaging and rich in information.
