The Top 3 Considerations for Modernizing Your Data Platform

How does your organization collaborate with data? Aligning data management tasks across any size organization can be a challenge. This can be attributed to a lack of transparent data access, lack of big data skills, or antiquated toolsets that do not enable shared metadata for clear lineage of the data. Regardless of the reason, the results are slow, rigid decision-making processes.

While modernizing your data architecture for more agility can seem overwhelming, with an integrated platform that enhances collaboration, organizations can reap the benefits of quality data that is well understood. The data platform should provide users with the ability to fully understand all aspects of the data with a simple, unified user interface where the business and IT can define, transform and provision the data. All while providing right-sized governance for access, security and auditability.

Join Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer with Zaloni, as he tackles modernizing your data platform and explains how your organization can expand collaborative practices with the Zaloni Data Platform.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll be able to answer these questions:
- Why is a data catalog important?
- What do I need to know about data quality?
- How does self-service play a role in the data strategy?

  • How to Build Customer Golden Records that Increase Customer Lifetime Value Recorded: Oct 10 2019 45 mins
    Tim Blackwell, Analytics Data Architect at Chalhoub, and Scott Gidley, VP Product at Zaloni
    How does your company build and maintain customer relationships? Today, companies own numerous data sources and store massive volumes of customer data. Extensive data collection poses the risks of data duplication, poor data quality, and a lack of transparent data access. Without accurate and reliable customer data, companies may face higher spending along with acquisition and reacquisition costs.

    Obstacles like these were apparent across Chalhoub's luxury brand and retail enterprise, a corporation managing over 650 stores throughout the gulf region. To maximize their customer data across multiple e-commerce and CRM systems, Chalhoub architected and deployed a cloud-based, centralized data hub on Microsoft Azure that provided data mastering capabilities to create customer golden records and enabled a 360-degree-view of the customer across all company brands. In this webinar, learn how Chalhoub was able to continue its "customer first" approach and improve their brand performance with Zaloni as a partner in the project.

    Join Tim Blackwell, Analytics Data Architect at Chalhoub, and Scott Gidley, VP Product at Zaloni, as they discuss how a holistic view of customer data allows for greater insights and improved targeted marketing to ultimately increase the lifetime value of their customers.

    Topics Include:
    - Utilizing the Customer 360 approach as a foundational data lake use case
    - Building customer golden records with a zone-based architecture
    - Value achieved through data acceleration

  • Achieving Big Business Value from Big Data Initiatives Recorded: Aug 13 2019 34 mins
    Rick Karl, Vice President of Value Engineering, Zaloni
    ROI.
    Risk reduction.
    Cost savings.

    Ask 3 different people what their idea of business value means and you’ll often get three different answers. When you’re trying to implement an enterprise-wide data hub, it’s often necessary to show value early and often but how can that be easily done when there are multiple stakeholders?

    To justify the investment, it’s critical to show how your new data hub will meet the goals of IT, Finance, and any other departments involved in the initiative. By accurately measuring value, your project will be poised to cut costs, generate revenue, and radically transform the business.

    Join Rick Karl, Zaloni’s VP of Value Engineering, as he shows what’s needed when trying to highlight the value an enterprise data hub can provide to an organization.

    Topics include:
    - Challenges in demonstrating business value for complex data initiatives
    - How to perform a business value assessment for modern data efforts
    - Making the business case that aligns IT and Finance objectives
  • What's your Big Data Vision? Recorded: Jun 27 2019 15 mins
    Matthew Monahan, Senior Product Manager
    With the amount of data being created and collected by organizations, it’s imperative that senior executives at these data-driven companies have a solid vision of where they want to go, and how they’ll get there.

    To achieve this vision, the way we find, understand, and use data needs to shift.

    Join Matthew Monahan, Zaloni’s Senior Product Manager, and Eric Kavanagh, CEO of the Bloor Group, as they discuss big data vision in this excerpt from the DM Radio podcast. They’ll also address:
    - Data governance concerns
    - Self-service data
  • Evolving your Passive Data Catalog into an Active Data Hub Recorded: May 8 2019 31 mins
    Scott Gidley, Vice President of Product Management
    We all know that data is the lifeblood of a modern enterprise. But how can your business users action relevant, quality data into their applications for immediate value?

    The answer used to be “Build a data catalog”. Data catalogs have grown in popularity as an essential tool for understanding where your data exists and what it is. But, that’s only the first step – and an easy step at that! The harder part is giving your business users self-service access to understand THEIR catalog and enrich the data THEY need when THEY need it … and then allowing them to action it into their analytical or operational applications for rapid insights.

    Empowering the business: that’s where an “active data hub” differentiates from a “passive data catalog”.

    Join Scott Gidley, VP of Product Management from Zaloni, to learn how real world users are moving away from traditional data catalogs to embrace active data hubs, including:
    - How a unified data supply chain removes unwanted tooling and rapidly delivers real business value to departmental or line of business users
    - How business users can enrich their data themselves and action it into their business applications - with the right amount of governance and trust
    - Test yourself against the data hub maturity curve to determine where you are within your enterprise
  • A Governed Self-Service Data Platform Accelerates Insights Recorded: Mar 27 2019 58 mins
    Ryan Peterson, Global Technology Segment Lead at AWS & Scott Gidley, Vice President of Product at Zaloni
    Today's enterprises need a faster way to get to business insights. That means broader access to high-value analytics data to support a wide array of use cases. Moving data repositories to the cloud is a natural step. Companies need to create a modern, scalable infrastructure for that data. At the same time, controls must be in place to safeguard data privacy and comply with regulatory requirements.

    In this webinar, Zaloni will share its experience and best practices for creating flexible, responsive, and cost-effective data lakes for advanced analytics that leverage Amazon Web Services (AWS). Zaloni’s reference solution architecture for a data lake on AWS is governed, scalable, and incorporates the self-service Zaloni Data Platform (ZDP).

    Join our webinar to learn how to:
    - Create a flexible and responsive data platform at minimal operational cost.
    - Use a self-service data catalog to identify enterprise-wide actionable insights.
    - Empower your users to immediately discover and provision the data they need.
  • A Modern Digital Data Architecture: Best Practices for Adoption Recorded: Mar 13 2019 61 mins
    Alex Gurevich, DXC Technology’s Analytics CTO for the Americas & Clark Bradley, Solutions Engineer at Zaloni
    Organizations that put analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) at the core of their transformation strategy will survive and thrive in the age of digital disruption. To achieve this, a holistic, modern data architecture and a rock-solid information supply chain are critical for success.

    Organizations can deliver timely, self-service, democratized data access and analytical insights at enterprise scale by leveraging the innovation design principles of data lakes, scalable and elastic cloud infrastructures, and automated information pipelines. However, many find that these architectures are complex to create, deploy and operate — often resulting in poor performance, unnecessary expense and underutilized assets for the do-it-yourselfers. Transitioning to such architectures from legacy paradigms carries additional difficulty and risk, especially in hybrid environments that can span multiple design patterns and cloud providers.

    In this webinar, Clark Bradley, Zaloni solutions engineer, and Alex Gurevich, DXC Technology’s Analytics chief technology officer for the Americas, will present solution designs and representative field-use cases for simplifying and accelerating adoption of a modern, digital data architecture.

    Topics to be discussed will include:
    - Best practices for migrating from a legacy to a modern data architecture
    - Deploying a data catalog in support of data lake architectures
    - Data lake architectures for hybrid and cloud environments
    - Protecting data assets and privacy without obstructing access
  • So You’ve Got a Data Catalog...Now What? Recorded: Feb 27 2019 40 mins
    Scott Gidley, Vice President of Product
    Achieving actionable insights from data is the goal of any organization. To help in this regard, data catalogs are being deployed to build an inventory of data assets that provides both business and IT users a way to discover, organize and describe enterprise data assets. This is a good first step that helps all types of users easily find relevant data to extract insights from.

    Increasingly, end users want to take the next step in provisioning or procuring this data into a sandbox or analytics environment for further use. Attend this session to see how organizations are looking to build actionable data catalogs via a data marketplace, that allow self-service access to data without sacrificing data governance and security policies.

    Learn how to provide governed access and visibility to the data lake while still staying on track and within budget. Join Scott Gidley, Zaloni’s Vice President of Product, as he discusses:
    - Architecting your data lake to support next-gen data catalogs
    - Rightsizing governance for self-service data
    - Where a data catalog falls short and how to address
    - Success use cases
  • Empower your Enterprise with a Self-Service Data Marketplace Recorded: Feb 13 2019 38 mins
    Aashish Majethia, Senior Solutions Engineer
    Analysts need timely access to enterprise data in order to stay competitive in today’s rapidly changing environment. Typically, business users need to request access through the IT department, which can be a waiting game, either because of technological roadblocks, governance restrictions or both. This adds more work, more process, and more frustration on both sides. Having the ability to find data sets, examine, update, and provision the data themselves allows business users to move quickly and frees IT to work on higher priority items.

    A modern data platform should provide a self-service data marketplace that gives right-sized governed access to data. The security permissions allow IT to define who needs access to the correct data at the appropriate stage of the data pipeline. This becomes quite complicated in regulated environments. Users should be able to search for data they have access to, explore and potentially update the metadata associated, and provision it into a sandbox when ready.

    Join us as Aashish Majethia, a Senior Solutions Engineer, dives into the self-service data marketplace and what is required to make it successful. He will cover topics including:
    - Catalogs
    - Self-service data preparation
    - Governance considerations and how they can enable a more agile data-driven enterprise
