Role of Data Integration in Enabling your Digital Business

The session will explore practical development in realising digital strategies that empower your business and provide guidance for improving digital value. We will look past the hype of digital leadership and disruption towards practical considerations of how data integration plays a central role in how technologies, innovation and economics work in a new digital information era. Many organisations are inundated with DIGITIZATION of their business model presenting both an opportunity and challenge to leadership, cultural and operating performance realisation. A paradox exists; the ability to manage the explosion of data, connectivity, and devices as well as the impact on skills, products and services, regulation and security, and the organisational value chain network and wider market dynamics. Mark will discuss the findings of PA’s digital barometer and explore the ramifications for leaders in their pursuit of digital excellence. He will demonstrate how digital thinking has led to new forms of digital value through new business strategies that address how experience and outcomes. Providing connected spaces is enabled by understanding how data and its usage in context is shaping the new organisation of the future.

Takeaways
· How does your business shape up in the digital economy.

· What holistic considerations really matter in digital thinking for your business and the role of data in the new digital enterprise.

· Case studies of practical evidence of how to join up business spaces with an integrated thinking approach

  • Systems of Insight - The Next Generation of Business Intelligence Recorded: Feb 21 2017 59 mins
    Boris Evelson - Forrester Principal Analyst
    Business intelligence has gone through multiple iterations in the past few decades. While BI's evolution has addressed some of the technology and process shortcomings of the earlier management information systems, BI teams still have a ways to go.

    From the laggards failing to transform enough of their structured and data into information and business insights, to the old guard of spreadsheet-based applications for key business decisions, companies have hit a rut. How do we solve this? With Systems of Insight.


    In this webinar, guest speaker, Boris Evelson, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester, will show you how to get with the BI program by creating systems of insight. Doing so will allow you to:


    - Merge existing IT capabilities with demanding business requirements

    - Harness valuable customer and company data

    - Make decisions faster, and more pointed, to serve customers in the Age of the Customer
  • Long-term Data Retention: Challenges, Standards and Best Practices Recorded: Feb 16 2017 61 mins
    Simona Rabinovici-Cohen, IBM, Phillip Viana, IBM, Sam Fineberg
    The demand for digital data preservation has increased drastically in recent years. Maintaining a large amount of data for long periods of time (months, years, decades, or even forever) becomes even more important given government regulations such as HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, OSHA, and many others that define specific preservation periods for critical records.

    While the move from paper to digital information over the past decades has greatly improved information access, it complicates information preservation. This is due to many factors including digital format changes, media obsolescence, media failure, and loss of contextual metadata. The Self-contained Information Retention Format (SIRF) was created by SNIA to facilitate long-term data storage and preservation. SIRF can be used with disk, tape, and cloud based storage containers, and is extensible to any new storage technologies. It provides an effective and efficient way to preserve and secure digital information for many decades, even with the ever-changing technology landscape.
Join this webcast to learn:
    •Key challenges of long-term data retention
    •How the SIRF format works and its key elements
    •How SIRF supports different storage containers - disks, tapes, CDMI and the cloud
    •Availability of Open SIRF

    SNIA experts that developed the SIRF standard will be on hand to answer your questions.

  • Machine Learning towards Precision Medicine Recorded: Feb 16 2017 47 mins
    Paul Hellwig Director, Research & Development, at Elsevier Health Analytics
    Medicine is complex. Correlations between diseases, medications, symptoms, lab data and genomics are of a complexity that cannot be fully comprehended by humans anymore. Machine learning methods are required that help mining these correlations. But a pure technological or algorithm-driven approach will not suffice. We need to get physicians and other domain experts on board, we need to gain their trust in the predictive models we develop.

    Elsevier Health Analytics has developed a first version of the Medical Knowledge Graph, which identifies correlations (ideally: causations) between diseases, and between diseases and treatments. On a dataset comprising 6 million patient lives we have calculated 2000+ models predicting the development of diseases. Every model adjusts for ~3000 covariates. Models are based on linear algorithms. This allows a graphical visualization of correlations that medical personnel can work with.
  • Bridging the Data Silos Recorded: Feb 15 2017 48 mins
    Merav Yuravlivker, Chief Executive Officer, Data Society

    Chief Executive Officer Merav Yuravlivker discusses how companies are missing out on some of their biggest profits (and how some companies are making billions) by aggregating disparate data sources. You'll learn about data sources available to you, how you can start automating this data collection, and the many insights that are at your fingertips.
  • Data Visualization IS NOT Self Service BI - The Case for IoT in BI Recorded: Feb 15 2017 27 mins
    Lee Hermon, Sisense Engagement Manager and Adi Azaria, Sisense Chief Evangelist
    Businesses today already know that visualization in business intelligence is an essential part of competitive success. Yet, too many organizations are falling behind because of the inability to keep up with demand for information. One mistake is thinking that self-serve data visualization is all they need when setting up a self-service BI environment.

    Debunking the common myth, we will explore why data visualization IS NOT self-service BI. The only way for Information workers to become more self-sufficient is by having a BI environment that is more usable but also more consumable. It is these two themes—usability and consumability - that play crucial roles in a fully functioning self-service BI environment. Using modern IoT technologies, the modern business can expand access and consumability of data by engaging the human senses of sight, sound, and touch.

    Join Lee Hermon, Sisense Engagement Manager, as he explores the limitations of current Self Service Visualization models and Adi Azaria, Sisense co-founder & Chief Evangelist as he introduces how IoT in Business Intelligence is changing the game.
  • Comparison of ETL v Streaming Ingestion,Data Wrangling in Machine/Deep Learning Recorded: Feb 15 2017 45 mins
    Kai Waehner, Technology Evangelist, TIBCO
    A key task to create appropriate analytic models in machine learning or deep learning is the integration and preparation of data sets from various sources like files, databases, big data storages, sensors or social networks. This step can take up to 50% of the whole project.

    This session compares different alternative techniques to prepare data, including extract-transform-load (ETL) batch processing, streaming analytics ingestion, and data wrangling within visual analytics. Various options and their trade-offs are shown in live demos using different advanced analytics technologies and open source frameworks such as R, Python, Apache Spark, Talend or KNIME. The session also discusses how this is related to visual analytics, and best practices for how the data scientist and business user should work together to build good analytic models.

    Key takeaways for the audience:
    - Learn various option for preparing data sets to build analytic models
    - Understand the pros and cons and the targeted persona for each option
    - See different technologies and open source frameworks for data preparation
    - Understand the relation to visual analytics and streaming analytics, and how these concepts are actually leveraged to build the analytic model after data preparation
