Modern Data Architecture Series: Data Integration

Managed Data Integration - Best Practices for The Data-Driven Enterprise
Big Data LDN is releasing a series of webinars looking at how modern enterprises should manage their data architecture. Over the next 3 weeks we will be exploring 3 key topics, specifically Data Integration, Data Warehousing and Data Visualisation.

The first of this series will be exploring Data Integration. Independent Analyst, Mike Ferguson will elaborate on how a managed data integration environment can be used to create an information supply chain and how this in turn can fuel collaborative component-based continuous development using a data integration fabric for enterprise DataOps.

Mike will be joined by Andy Steed, Content Director of Big Data LDN and Nathaniel Spohn, EMEA Director at Fivetran, data integration experts and webinar partner.

  • Eating the Elephant: A Business ROI-Driven Approach to Migrating to Cloud Recorded: Aug 6 2020 57 mins
    Steve Crosson Smith, SDG Group UK | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN
    Most commentators agree that migrating legacy data infrastructure, such as data warehousing, integration and transformation, into modern cloud-based architectures will significantly benefit both business and IT stakeholders. Many projects, however, fail to secure funding because their time to value is too long or uncertain.

    This session outlines a business-centric approach to migrating to cloud-based data architectures which delivers stakeholder value 3 to 6 times faster than most alternatives, whilst significantly increasing the ability to make self-service, data-driven decisions and expand into areas such as advanced analytics. The approach itself is not tied to a specific technology stack but we will outline technologies that make this easier to achieve.
    The result is happy, enabled business stakeholders who regard IT as a business enabler, not a bottleneck.

    Rik Van Bruggen, Neo4j | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN
    Join us for this webinar about graphs and how you can benefit from better insights in these uncertain times.

    We will start by presenting how graphs can power the contract tracing use case that is so relevant in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. However, we will not stop there: we will focus on what can be learnt from this use case in other environments, and introduce the power of connected data to any kind of business.
    Finally the discussion will aim to follow current hot trends like AI, recommendations, data science or fraud detection which are all dependent on an increasing understanding of the connectedness in our data.
  • Technology Modernisation Series: Simplifying the Single View Recorded: Jul 28 2020 62 mins
    Oliver Bowie, Triangle| Chris Fitzpatrick, Denodo | Charles Southwood, Denodo | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN
    As data sources continue to grow, so does the desire to pull them all together. From Customer Experience Directors to Inventory Managers, the fabled single view has been top-of-mind for anyone yearning to gain a complete, unified, at a glance picture.

    Achieving it, however, has been a different story.

    The traditional method of data integration through ETL is a mammoth effort requiring time, high costs and specialised IT skills. Moreover, it is inadequate to deliver timely results with the exponential growth in the volume and velocity of data.

    That is until now.

    Join experts from Triangle Information Management and Denodo, the leader in data virtualisation, as they share valuable insight and real-life examples of how you can achieve a single view of anything - inside of days, not years.

    Webinar Speakers:

  • Blueprint Series: The Complete Guide to Observability Recorded: Jun 23 2020 53 mins
    Yoann Lechevallier, Lightstep | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN
    Easy-to-understand monoliths are giving way to distributed systems: microservices, serverless, meshes, and proxies in every possible combination. These systems offer developers the freedom to build new features and technology faster, as they are no longer beholden to the elaborate release processes associated with monolithic architecture.

    But, like all good things, there is a price: distributed systems are inherently difficult to operate and maintain. When something breaks—which it invariably will—how can you quickly comb through the myriad dependencies? How can you separate good hypotheses from bad ones?

    Enter observability...

    Learn how observability helps developers understand multi-layered architectures: what’s slow, what’s broken, and what needs to be done to improve performance.
