Architecting a Data-Driven Organization

Forrester - Brian Hopkins, Principal Analyst; Alpine Data Labs Steven Hillion, CPO; Kaggle Jeremy Howard, President
Organizations are under pressure to increase the speed and effectiveness of their decision-making to increase business agility. Increasingly, expanded analytic capabilities are the means to achieve this goal and that requires more than just a Big Data analytics platform.

Organizations need to update the skills of their teams, foster an environment that enables analytic productivity, and develop a mindset towards data that values it as the new fuel for organizational productivity.

Learn why human skills such as creativity, communications and leadership are becoming more valuable than ever in the era of big data.

  • Hadoop is transforming today's Healthcare industry. In this webinar, Charles Boicey covers the various new use cases made possible as the Hadoop ecosystem matures.​

    In 2010 the Clinical Informatics Team at the University of California in Irvine, led by Charles Boicey, looked outside of the conventional Healthcare data ecosystem for new data management solutions - their existing Electronic Health Record and Enterprise Data Warehouse environments no longer met the organization’s needs. They researched "Big Data" technologies in organizations such as Yahoo, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook and concluded that Hadoop could supplement their current ecosystem to solve existing use cases and act as a platform to develop new applications for future solutions and insights.
  • YARN has fundamentally transformed the Hadoop landscape. It has opened Hadoop from a single workload system to one that can now support a multitude of “fit for purpose” processing. In this workshop we will provide an overview of Apache Slider that enables custom applications to run natively in the cluster as a YARN Ready Application. The workshop will include working examples and provide an overview of work being pursued in the community around YARN Docker integration.
  • Effective data governance requires the effective application of people, process, policy and technology to ensure consistent delivery of trusted, connected, and secure data across an enterprise.

    Organizations across all industries are investing in data governance to gain business value from their data to meet industry regulations, reduce the cost of doing business, and grow revenue and profits.

    In this webinar dedicated to data governance, Michael Wodzinski, Director of Information Architecture team, Lisa Bemis, Director of Master Data, and Fabian Torres, Director, Project Management at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH), global leader in publishing, will share their experiences in implementing a data governance program within HMH. Our guest speakers from HMH will discuss some of the unique data management challenges within HMH, how the data governance program has helped address those issues and open up new opportunities for the company. While walking you through their data governance journey, our guest speakers will offer their insights on how to establish a viable data governance practice in a complex enterprise environment, share their best practices and lessons learned. David Lyle, VP of Produce Strategy, from Informatica will share his observations in the data governance space, discuss Informatica’s data governance solutions and our thought leadership behind those offerings.
  • Attack Intelligence to Power Tomorrow’s Cyber Response.

    Preparing to combat every threat and vulnerability is a war that no cybersecurity professional can win today. Speed, accuracy and visibility of threats and active attacks is critical to defending against APTs and other sophisticated attacks responsible for today’s headline-grabbing data breaches. The next generation of advanced threat prevention solutions will require a significant shift in how we incorporate threat and attack visibility into everyday security operations, enabling incident responders to identify and stop campaigns as they happen.

    Join us as IDC’s Research Vice President for Security Products Services Charles Kolodgy shares his view of the threat landscape, including how threats are evolving, how cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and what new solutions are necessary to combat APTs.
  • Growing installs is the number one mission for any mobile app developer, and any user acquisition strategy generally consists of a mix of organic installs and paid campaigns. But many see these as separate and distinct. Not true. To get the most out of each — especially for smaller developers — it’s critical to understand how paid installs impact organic installs, and vice versa.

    In this webinar, Ian Sefferman of TUNE will share the eye-opening results of a study investigating the correlation between paid campaigns and organic installs (yes, it’s positive), and how this varies depending on the app category and operating system. Christian Calderon of DOTS will dive into the strategies and tactics that increase both paid and organic installs, and how they work together.

    What you’ll learn:
    For every paid install, how many organic installs an app can expect to see
    How the multiplier effect impacts app categories differently
    How organic installs and engaged users affect your paid strategy and spend
    Best-practice examples on what really works to maximize both organic installs and paid campaigns for highest yield

  • In data visualization, we map data values and relationships onto visual dimensions to create a graphical representation for exploration and analysis. How can we best use the power of the human visual system to make these values and relationships clear? Using examples from information design, cartography and data graphics, we will demonstrate how insights from research in color perception, perceptual organization and visual attention have helped define best practices for visual analysis.

    You will learn how to utilize a few perceptual and cognitive building blocks that can inform a wide variety of visualization choices, and to demonstrate how these influenced the design of the Tableau product.

  • BIG DATA: The Answer to Agile - Greenplum Product Announcement Recorded: Dec 8 2011 90 mins
    Join Greenplum and EMC for a live video webcast that will feature the unveiling of the industry's next-generation platform for Big Data Analytics. You'll see for yourself why Big Data is the answer to Agile.

    The era of Big Data is here. Leading organizations know that if they are going to tap into the business value of their Big Data, they must quickly evolve beyond business intelligence and put data analysis at the core of every business activity.

    Unfortunately, many companies take a fragmented approach to Big Data Analytics; patching together disparate solutions in an attempt to manage and analyze ever-growing volumes of structured and unstructured data. This approach typically drives up development costs, creates performance and reliability issues, and prevents organizations from leveraging the high-performance data analytics they need to become more predictive, forward-looking, and competitive.

    Join us to find out why adopting a unified approach to Big Data Analytics is the only way to achieve an agile business. You'll learn:


    -Where to start your journey to Big Data.

    -How Big Data Analytics can help you achieve more growth, higher profits, lower costs, faster time-to-market, and greater overall business value.

    -Why Greenplum's customers and technology partners believe Big Data Analytics is driving the future of their organizations.

    -What's inside Greenplum's next-generation platform for Big Data Analytics- a platform that will be unveiled for the first time on the webcast.

    -How Big Data is becoming the new economic engine for business.

  • BEYOND BI: Big Data Analytics -The New Path to Value Recorded: Oct 27 2011 61 mins
    Big data analytics is where advanced analytic techniques operate on big data. By now its obvious that big data that is useful for analytics is quite different from the pristine and well-ordered data of the average data warehouse. Armed with advanced analytics insights, business users can make well-informed, fact-based decisions to support their organizations tactical and strategic goals and create a competitive advantage. This is an important task right now, because the recent economic recession forced deep changes into most businesses.

    Going forward, organizations will need new tools and technologies to harness the power of big data analytics even if the organization has already deployed a full-blown business intelligence and data warehousing technology stack.

    This webcast will help you get your arms around analytic platforms and technologies purpose-built for big data. It will also cover:

    The economics of Big Data analytics and what is possible now
