Retail Analytics: Get More Value from Legacy Systems with a Modernized Approach

Recently Tesco went out in an Essential Retail article and defended legacy systems. “If you don’t have legacy, you are probably not in business”, said their CDO, Thomas Nielsen. So what would Vertica have to offer Retail if legacy is that good?

In this webinar we’ll look at some of the strategic areas that are transforming retail, its operations, and its interaction with the ones who call the shots – the customers. The best use of Vertica in a retailer might not necessarily be to deploy it as a replacement for any of its siloed legacy systems, but rather to provide a means to explore, analyze and visualize insights derived from several of these legacy systems.

This is exactly what Zoined, a Vertica OEM partner, does in its analytics offering. Zoined Retail & Hospitality Analytics is a cloud based SaaS product, which out of the box contains 90-95% of the metrics and KPIs used by retailers and hospitality operators to track and monitor their businesses, giving them support for smarter decisions and actions in key areas such as assortment, cross-sell and staff performance optimization, all in real time.

Styrbjörn Torbacke, the MD of Zoined will describe how Vertica allows them to combine, correlate and present operational insights in real time to relevant staff in a retail environment.

  • Philips Aims for Zero Unplanned Equipment Downtime with Predictive Analytics Recorded: Apr 3 2019 59 mins
    Dr. Ir. Mauro Barbieri, Senior Scientist, Philips Research and Carlo Arioli, EMEA Marketing Manager, Vertica
    Medical imaging systems such as MRI and CT scanners must provide optimal clinical performance and predictable cost of ownership. While clinicians understand the need for maintenance, any system downtime can be costly for health service providers. To overcome this challenge, Philips Healthcare is moving from reactive to data-driven, proactive maintenance, utilizing new sources of sensor data along with machine learning models to enable scheduled, predictable and non-intrusive service actions that don’t interrupt regular clinical workflow.

    Join our latest Data Disruptors webcast to hear Mauro Barbieri, Senior Scientist with Philips Research, discuss how Philips is moving towards zero unplanned downtime of medical imaging systems using remote monitoring and predictive analytics, powered by Vertica. Philips collects and processes data from devices to identify potential problems, reduce the likelihood of costly downtime and minimize impact on patients. The webcast will cover:

    • Philips' Aiming for Zero program and evolution from reactive to proactive service
    • How to achieve continuous, data-driven innovation with integrated teams of SMEs, data scientists and business stakeholders
    • The company’s approach to data integration and predictive model creation
    • Key aspects of Philips’ predictive maintenance platform and data architecture components
  • Improving Dashboard Performance, Achieving Fine-Grained Analytics with Vertica Recorded: Mar 19 2019 53 mins
    Yuanzhe Bei and Jie Guo, Vertica
    There are two popular ways that organizations mine growing volumes of data for insight: short-term dashboard reporting and long-term analytics. Every organization would like their dashboards on recent data to be faster in addition to keeping data longer so that data analytics can derive more insightful, granular results.

    Join us for this Webcast to understand how Vertica can help you achieve both of these goals with these powerful features – Hierarchical Partitioning, Flattened Tables, and Live Aggregate Projections. Discover how Hierarchical Partitioning combines old data partitions into larger files, allowing you to retain more data without bloating the catalog or forcing partitions to be less fine-grained. The former benefits data analytics, while the latter helps with dashboard reporting, as more fine-grained partitions help with pruning data more aggressively, resulting in faster query performance and less resource usage.

    You’ll also learn how Flattened Tables provides convenient and faster data denormalization for your dashboard queries and optimizes resources more efficiently by avoiding joins. The unique column-wise refresh mechanism can defer denormalization operation after your ETL process without introducing much overhead. Finally, learn how Live Aggregate Projections materializes partially aggregated results to speed up those aggregation-type analytical queries.

  • Improving Customer Experience with Machine Learning and Sensor Data at Scale Recorded: Sep 27 2018 39 mins
    Larry Lancaster, Zebrium
    We live in an increasingly connected world – from cloud software and data center hardware to medical devices, industrial machines, and consumer wearables. Whatever can be connected, will be connected. Why? Because vendors (manufacturers) seek to tap the telemetry data from these connected products to improve their customer experience.

    Building a big data platform from scratch to capture this opportunity is difficult, since most of the data is unstructured and requires specialized domain knowledge and engineering skills to leverage. Join four-time Vertica customer, Larry Lancaster, on our latest Data Disruptors webcast as he explains how:

    • His latest venture, Zebrium, uses Machine Learning to structure product telemetry into a relational system of record to ingest data in-line, at wire speed
    • The Zebrium cloud service platform delivers specialized tools to improve the customer support experience
    • Vertica has enabled each of his former companies – Glassbeam, Data Domain, and Nimble Storage – to become data disruptors in their respective domains
  • Cloud Database Performance Benchmark: Vertica in Eon Mode and Snowflake Recorded: Sep 13 2018 51 mins
    William McKnight, President, McKnight Consulting Group and Sanjay Baronia, Lead Product Marketing Manager, Vertica
    Two distinct trends are converging. The cloud is proving immensely useful in providing elastic, measurable, on-demand and self-service resources to organizations of all sizes. The uptake in 2018 has been phenomenal, continuing the biggest transformation that technology professionals will experience in their careers. Also, all organizations are relying even more than before on analytical databases to load, store, and analyze volumes of data at high speed to derive timely insights.

    An independent benchmark study was conducted to assess query performance, concurrency impact and cost-effectiveness of Vertica and Snowflake running in the AWS Cloud. The benchmark (expanding upon UC Berkeley’s Big Data Benchmark) simulated scenarios to answer fundamental business questions that every enterprise might encounter and ask.

    In this webinar, we will discuss the very interesting, need-to-know results and key takeaways of the benchmark. We will also discuss how to achieve high-performance and scalable analytics in the cloud and augment current, on-premises platforms in a cost-effective manner, continuing your journey to being data-driven.
