It’s clear that the world witnessed a highly accelerated rate of digitalization in the last year or so. We saw a shift to newer, more agile, and more resilient, remote-friendly environments and faster adoption of “digital” processes almost overnight. How much will we return to “business as usual”? How have energy companies and utilities adapted, and what could be next?
Utilities that started digital programs before COVID-19 hit, have been more resilient. In the upcoming months many will need to reconsider their technology priorities to be able to reduce O&M costs. And this can be done by using analytics to create risk profiles that generate improved asset-maintenance cycles.
IIoT technologies can improve field operations, reduce crew sizes, improving both safety and efficiency. Remote troubleshooting could do the same. With the travel restrictions in place, remote supervision might play a bigger role in the construction of new sites. Join our speakers to find out how to accelerate digitalization in energy and utilities.

The last 18 months have emphasized the importance of the move to the cloud environment, as we transition from an industry that’s largely on-premises to one that can support hybrid work environments and withstand increased market volatility, whenever it arises.
And the benefits are well known - modernization of our legacy infrastructures, weathering regulatory change, and bolstering operational resilience to reduce operational risk and address cybersecurity. However, compiling compliance obligations for a cloud migration, and balancing risk in that move, is no mean feat.
In this lively discussion, Virginie O’Shea of Firebrand Research, Suranjan Som of Hitachi Vantara, and Nirvana Farhadi, RegTech Pioneer and Expert, discuss interconnected risks, operational resilience, new technologies, factors for success, and more:
• The recent impact that the oversight of cloud has on financial institutions’ operations
• Factors driving the rapid move to the cloud, and associated compliance objectives
• How firms are balancing compliance obligations with the digital transformation agenda
• Upcoming regulations – is there a Chief Cloud Officer in our future?
• Recommendations and best practices for success

Enterprises are falling behind on data privacy compliance and regulatory requirements (GDPR, CCPA etc.) to protect sensitive data. They use obsolete tools and manual processes that are inaccurate and error prone, delaying data consumption by months.
Join us to learn how to bring Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Automation to effectively identify and protect ALL standard and firm-specific sensitive data.

High quality data is the foundation of the information-driven enterprise. But challenges persist to unlock the potential of that data: It is complicated, siloed and distributed. Consequently, companies do not take advantage of most of their data today – in fact, only around 2.5% of all data is actually analyzed.
Join Mark Burnette and Anand Rao to learn about how open connectivity and automation lets anyone involved with data avoid tool proliferation, escape low level coding and shrink time to value of their big data projects.

Modernizing the core itself doesn’t differentiate an Enterprise, it’s the ability to deliver personalized experiences, value-added data and insights, and ancillary services that extend from a modernized core that makes an Enterprise stand out. Building a strong agile and adaptable core to plug and play with modern data management strategies and data science expertise can help you open new markets and new ecosystem for your Enterprise. In this webinar, learn how organizations are changing business models to innovate and power growth. Join us to understand how enterprises are keeping “experiences” and “business outcomes” top of mind to drive their digital strategies around edge, cloud and data.

Is duplicate data weighing you down? For many organizations, duplicate data makes up a significant portion of their data lake operating cost. It arises organically – analysts and scientists improve a data set they’re working on, save it, continue, save it again. Their peers do the same. The next thing you know, you have 10, 25, 100 copies of a data set, with minimal true differences. Updating one without changing the other copies leads to bogus results, leaves sensitive data unsecured and even adds unnecessary cost pressures. In the past, cost to maintain duplicate data were covered by IT. But with moves to public cloud, funded with your op-ex budget, these duplicates become materially cost prohibitive. Duplicate data is also a risk for data breaches and other regulatory violations. It does no good to defend the “production” version, if the other copies are less protected.
In this session we’ll discuss Lumada Data Catalog, and how its Data Rationalization feature can help you discover and tame your duplicate data.

Many data lakes and data warehouses will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform in the next 3 – 5 years. Additionally, cloud preferences to support data management will lead to a multicloud environment - increasing data governance and integration complexity.
Join Anand Rao, Fred Schults and Jason Tiret to see how Lumada DataOps Suite reduces cloud migration costs while enabling you to blend on-premises data with cloud data. Learn how you can reduce your processing time window while scaling to meet your data volume in a multicloud environment with Lumada's Pentaho Data Integration.
Join our webinar on Thursday, April 15, to see how the latest features can help you in your cloud data initiatives.

Organizations that are enjoying the some of the greatest benefits from their data are ones that can provide greater access to more data in a more efficient manner. This session explores how the Lumada Data Services portfolio components can be combined to achieve these goals. Greater access is achieved via self-service data discovery & provisioning and automated protection of sensitive information. Lumada can tap into new data sources such as sensors, video and text to provide more data for greater insight. Efficiency is achieved by abstracting low-level data source details and by optimizing technology and environments such as edge computing and data lakes. We show how Pentaho, Lumada Data Catalog, Lumada Edge Intelligence, Lumada Data Optimizer and other Hitachi Vantara technologies work together to support the data-driven business.

Gartner predicts that 75% of all databases will be on a cloud platform by 2023 despite more than half of databases being on-premise today. To effectively navigate this period of disruption, organizations should prioritize three critical capabilities: Data automation, governance, and portability. In this session, Cloudera and Hitachi Vantara will discuss how they are addressing this period of disruption in cloud migration for big data workloads. We will focus on best practices as well as highlight successful implementations using our joint solution.

The growing waves of data you’re pulling in include sensitive, personal or confidential data. This can become compliance nightmare, especially with rules around PII, GDPR and CCPA. Especially as it takes simply too much time to manually decide what should be protected.
In this session, we will show how AI-driven data catalogs can identify sensitive data and share that identification with your data security platforms to automate its discovery, identification and security. You will see a demonstration of how this dramatically reduces your time to onboard data and make it safely available to your business communities.
