Innovation in Retail: Creating the Universal Associate

Retail brick and mortar storefronts are under siege from online surrogates like Amazon. One thing remains constant: Customers yearn for interpersonal services. For retailers great customer experiences are the difference between winning and losing. What is evident is that customer experience lives and dies in the hands of the associate.

Creating the universal associate to drive a creative shopping experience that is intelligent, practical and personal for customers is imperative for survival. Leading retailers acknowledge the urgency of leveraging advances in mobility and IoT to bring the new effective retail aspirations to fruition. During this webinar we will discuss three key issues:

1. How can leading retailers modernize the shopping experience?

2. What are the key technologies and how are they evolving?

3. What best practices are emerging and what you should consider?

  • The Five Barriers To Automating Manual Business Processes Recorded: Jul 12 2019 56 mins
    Stowe Boyd, Terry Simpson
    Despite the growing awareness of the productivity gains that are possible from automating everyday business processes, the great majority — as much as 68% in recent research — are still manual.

    In this free webinar from GigaOm Research, Gigaom analyst Stowe Boyd digs into the barriers that are holding back adoption of process automation in a give-and-take conversation with Terry Simpson, Technical Evangelist at Nintex.

    The pair will address the preconception that workflow requires programming, and is therefore costly and time-consuming, and inaccessible to non-techies. Another concern is that integration with existing tools is difficult, and adapting to the specific work patterns in your workplace may not be possible. We’ll dispel those concerns. Perhaps the biggest barrier is the perception that you have to attack all the processes at once, and only critical corporate processes should be automated.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:

    Why you don’t have to attack all processes at once.
    How to take a stepwise approach to knock down barriers.
    How to regain time lost in the labyrinth of manual processes.

  • How to Adapt to Cloud and Align Infrastructure to Key Business Objectives Recorded: Jul 12 2019 53 mins
    David linthicum, My Truong
    This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts in automated cloud deployment at scale, featuring GigaOm analyst David Linthicum and a special guest from Packet, My Truong. The discussion will focus on why things are changing, and how you should approach cloud requirements, and the need for customized solutions.

    Moving to the cloud? We all are. However, as enterprises move existing and net new systems into the cloud, they are hitting a larger issue: they must adapt to the cloud, the cloud does not adapt to them.

    What this means is that most enterprises have custom requirements to specifically meet the needs of the business. Public cloud providers are really utility providers that attempt to fit your square workloads in their round holes. While a few will fit, the applications that require specialized, local and remote infrastructure are far more than we think.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:

    Why the way that we are consuming cloud is changing.
    Alternatives that you may not understand.
    Specific solutions that leverage the advantages of cloud, but without limitations.
    Best practices, and processes you can follow.
    Most of those attending this Webinar will understand that workloads often have requirements that may require or benefit from customized infrastructure.

  • Empowering Digital Transformation with Data Management Recorded: Jul 11 2019 64 mins
    Enrico Signoretti, Jonathon Calmes
    This free 1-hour webinar explores how to take advantage of data management to improve value of data and how to reuse it efficiently across the organization, and features data storage GigaOm analyst Enrico Signoretti and special guest from Aparavi, Jonathan Calmes. Every organization is creating and storing vast amounts of data, most of which has a short lifespan but needs to be conserved for a long time. Compliance, regulations, never-delete policies and so on, lead us to store and conserve data for longer and longer. Even cloud is not a solution to overcome the increasing infrastructure costs at this point, but what happens if we can create more value out of it?

    Data stored in our systems can be considered a liability or become the most powerful asset for the organization, and any digital transformation initiative can benefit from it.

    This 1-hour webinar explores:

    Understanding data growth and diversity
    Transforming a liability into an asset with classification and search
    How to build efficient intelligent archives for data reusability
    Applications that can benefit from data reusability

  • Data Catalogs: Versatile, Accessible and Essential for Data Governance Recorded: Jul 3 2019 60 mins
    Andrew Brust, Andy Sheldon
    Today’s enterprises are using more data than ever before, from a large and growing variety of sources. Even smaller organizations that don’t explicitly administer conventional databases do, in fact, have numerous repositories, often with high volumes of data, on-premises and in the cloud. Such data must be actively managed and governed; regulatory compliance demands it. Beyond compliance, data is a competitive asset whose active management is just good business.

    A modern data catalog platform is the key to establishing management and governance of your data. A data catalog can offer you connectivity to a variety of data sources; artificial intelligence (AI)-powered assistance; the ability to identify and tag sensitive data and personally identifiable information (PII); and even support for cataloging data embedded in visualizations. With all that power, a great data catalog platform can help inventory and master an entire data estate, even for organizations new to data management.

    Join GigaOm for this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research to learn about data catalogs, governance and their tie-ins to other components in the data landscape. The Webinar features GigaOm Analyst Andrew Brust and Andy Sheldon, VP of Marketing, at Unifi Software, a leader in data catalogs and data preparation.

    This 1-hour webinar explores:

    Why data governance is germane to everyone, from individual business units, to SMBs, all the way to large Enterprise IT organizations

  • Mobile Security Futures: Building Scale and Diversity for Tomorrow, Today. Recorded: Jul 3 2019 57 mins
    Bob Egan, Jonathon Wong, Larry Walsh, Ram Motipally
    This free 1-hour webinar from Gigaom Research brings together leading minds in mobile security, including Gigaom senior analysts Bob Egan and Larry Walsh, joined by Samsung thought leaders in a roundtable discussion on how businesses can employ best-in-class strategies to mitigate mobile security risks across the organization.

    As mobility in all its forms, including Internet of Things (IoT), continues to pervade our homes and businesses, it’s no wonder why companies report a 47% increase in mobile threats. In fact, by some estimates, upwards of 60% of companies report some sort of hack owed to unsecure mobile apps and mobile data leakage.

    One in five employees store company documents in third-party cloud services. Think they’re all doing so securely and with IT approval? The modern day worker will get his or her job done using whatever tools are needed, whether those tools are IT approved or not. Simply managing employee BYOD devices does not make sense for every organization but securing devices and their app and cloud ecosystem is critical by utilizing a mobile defense initiative.

    We’ll share stories and lessons learned about shadow IT as we discuss how to safely support employees who don’t always seek IT guidance.

    During this webinar, experts will address the key issues:

    1. How is the mobile security threat evolving?
    2. What are the core tenants of a mobile defense initiative?
    3. How do you secure your organization at scale today, for tomorrow?
  • Data Warehouse + Data Lake: Get the Synergy, Ditch the Complexity Recorded: Jul 2 2019 64 mins
    Andrew Brust, Roi Avinoam Data Analytics, Data Architecture, Data Warehouse, Big Data, Data Analytics, Data Storage
    The question of whether data lakes or data warehouses provide more efficacy is now almost cliché. In the classic version of the story, business users suffer collateral damage as these two conflicting models duke it out, and one or the other wins. In the alternate ending, the two models are unified, each leveraged for its relative strength, leaving business users to benefit greatly.
    Both of these endings involve a little wishful thinking, frankly. Can business users really do without the flexibility and agility of a data lake, or can they dispense with the rigor and governance of a data warehouse? And, conversely, can they really have it both ways, without a monumental data modeling and ETL burden?

    When at an impasse in data management, applying data-driven thinking can often help. What if a virtual data layer could be formed over warehouse and lake, and what if the ETL and modeling burden to build that layer were automated, through the use of machine learning? Now the warehouse and lake can exist separately, unified virtually, and interfaced autonomously.
    Can this really be done? Can performance be acceptable? Join us for this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research. The webinar features GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust and special guest, Roi Avinoam, Co-founder and CTO from Panoply, a company specializing in smart data warehouse technology.

    In this 1-hour webinar, you will discover:

    - How warehouse and lake can be unified virtually while developing separately
    - How and when data in the lake can “graduate” to become part of the warehouse.
    - How existing database technologies like views and caching can be applied in new ways to address the new requirements of data-driven organizations
  • Unifying the Data Tech Stack: Across the Edge, Analytics and Operational Tiers Recorded: Jul 2 2019 60 mins
    Andrew Brust, Srini V Srinivasan
    Today’s data technology stack can be a hodgepodge. You may have one set of technologies for operational databases; another for a caching layer; still more tech for analytics and AI; and additional platforms for processing data on edge and mobile devices. Each of these workloads seems to demand a specialized platform. And the resulting complexity is formidable.

    But an enlightened architecture can consolidate your data stack, bringing efficiency and consistency. Unifying approaches, to both systems of engagement and systems of record, will get you a long way. So too will a revamped perspective on storage, leveraging RAM and other memory technologies, to maximum effect. The combination of strong consistency and high-performance in one database platform can close the deal.Want to learn how you can streamline your manifest of deployed data technologies? Join us for this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research.

  • Employing Composable Infrastructure to Improve Data Center Resource Utilization Recorded: Jul 2 2019 59 mins
    Ray Lucchesi, Steve Ginsberg, Phil Sellers
    This free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research brings together experts on Composable Infrastructure, featuring GigaOm Analysts Ray Lucchesi, Steve Ginsberg, and Philip Sellers. The discussion will focus on how Composable Infrastructure can improve data center resource utilization for mixed application workloads.

    Ever since the emergence of high-end X86 servers, IT has been burdened with the concern of underutilized data center assets. With virtualization, admins could take advantage of increases in computation to apply excess CPU cycles for use by other applications or users. However, similar concerns have surfaced for high-speed storage, networking, and other resources.

    Where virtualization solved compute over capacity, data centers are now left with NVMe SSD storage, proliferating GPU cores, and fast networking that no single application could effectively use. Yes, NVMeoF can help share high-performance NVMe storage and network virtualization and other solutions can help better utilize abundant networking capacity, but these are point solutions for specific components. A more general solution is needed, one that spans all data center resources. That is, a single system, which can disaggregate data center resources from servers and compose a “logical” server consisting of one or more of those resources to run an application and when that completes, move them on to the next. With composable infrastructure, IT customers have a single solution that covers all server resources.

    In this webinar, attendees will come away with an enriched understanding of composable infrastructure solutions and how to employ them to better utilize the abundant compute, storage and networking resources that are now available.

  • Using Multicloud Storage to Improve Security for Highly Regulated Environments Recorded: Jun 28 2019 66 mins
    Enrico Signoretti, Tim Bramble, Alyson Gaffney
    Keeping data safe and under control in highly regulated environments is business critical for every type of organization. Whether it be healthcare records, finance, or government documents, most data must be stored for several years while kept easily accessible for applications. On the other hand, exponential data growth is compromising long term sustainability of traditional infrastructures, and new solutions are needed to find the right compromise between cost, security, and accessibility.

    Thanks to its flexibility, cloud seems the right solution for this type of storage infrastructure, allowing movement of costs from CAPEX to OPEX while avoiding future hardware migrations and painful migration processes. Unfortunately, this flexibility presents potential downsides which can easily introduce several forms of lock-in as well as unpredictable costs to manage.

    These aspects are particularly important in healthcare, where an increasing number of regulations impose strict control over data, security, and the privacy of patients. Ensuring medical records are accessible from everywhere, stored safely for several years, if not decades and kept at reasonable costs, is a challenge — especially when infrastructure costs are included in the equation.

    Fortunately, innovative approaches allow the best cloud selection for any single transaction in terms of performance and cost, and they grant seamless data mobility in the backend while improving security and traceability.

    Explore these data security topics and more as GigaOm Research brings together experts in enterprise data storage and IT infrastructure, featuring GigaOm Analyst Enrico Signoretti, Leonovus VP Product Management, Tim Bramble and VP Marketing and Partnerships, Alyson Gaffney for this 1-hour webinar discussing innovative solutions for infrastructure strategies in this area.
  • Data Catalogs are Essential. But Can They Be Fun? Recorded: Jun 27 2019 60 mins
    Andew Brust, Aaron Kalb
    In the era of data lakes and digital transformation, Data catalogs are taking on new functionality and revitalized importance. You’d be hard put to manage your data landscape responsibly without a data catalog, but just because catalogs are needed doesn’t mean they are just a dry requirement. Done right, data catalogs can make self-service analytics across the Enterprise far more productive, widely-adopted and -- dare we say it -- fun.

    Data catalogs can facilitate frictionless discoverability, fostering the user enthusiasm needed for a robust data culture. They help users find the data they want and discover data they may not have known was available. Machine learning/AI-driven recommendations help users too, especially when they’re security-aware and based on what other users have found useful.

    To learn more about the benefits of grassroots data catalog implementations and how to get teams excited to join in on all the fun, join us for this free 1-hour webinar from GigaOm Research. The Webinar features GigaOm analyst Andrew Brust and special guest, Aaron Kalb, Co-founder & VP of Design and Strategic Initiatives from Alation, a frontrunner in the data catalog arena.
