Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Big Data = Big Problems

Big data has gone beyond a buzzword for businesses and is rapidly becoming embedded in the way organisations operate and make decisions. Highlighted as one of the key areas for attention in the latest ISF Threat Horizon 2016 report, Big data analytics can also mislead when decisions are based on faulty, skewed, incomplete or poorly analysed data sets, resulting in missed opportunities as organisations enter the wrong markets, or enter the right markets with the wrong products. It’s also possible that the same data sets can lead to different conclusions in different parts of the world as a result of cultural bias. Further complicating matters, attackers will target data analytics tools to ensure decisions are skewed.

This webcast will look at the implied threats to Big Data and offer ways of communicating the challenge of effective Big Data analysis and decision making to senior management.

  • A Practical Guide: Building your BI Business Case for 2017 Dec 8 2016 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Ani Manian, Head of Product Strategy, Sisense and Philip Lima, Chief Development Officer, Mashey
    So you’ve decided you want to jump on the data analytics bandwagon and propel your company into the 21st century with better analytics, reporting and data visualization. But to get a BI project rolling you usually need the entire organization, or at the very least the entire department, to get on board. Since embarking on a BI initiative requires an investment of time and resources, convincing the relevant people in the company to take the leap is imperative. You’ll need to construct a solid business case, defend your budget request and prove the value BI can bring to your organization.

    In this webinar you’ll discover:

    - Why organizations need to invest in BI to begin with
    - How are organization deriving value from BI
    - How to build an internal business case for investing in BI
    - What are the intricacies of how to build a budget
    - How to drive your company to a purchasing decision
    - How to start realizing value from BI now
  • Predictive APIs: What about Banking? Dec 8 2016 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Natalino Busa, Head of Applied Data Science at Teradata
    The best services have one thing in common: a superb customer experience. Banking services are no exception to this rule, and indeed the quest for an effortless, well informed, and personalized customer experience is one of the main goals of today's innovation in digital banking services.

    According to what Maslow has described in his "pyramid of needs", customers are seeking a more intimate and meaningful experience where banking services can actively assist the customer in performing and managing their financial life. Predictive APIs have a fundamental role in all this, as they enable a new set of customer journeys such as automatic categorization of transactions, detecting and alerting recurrent payments, pre-approving credit requests or provide better tools to fight fraud without limiting legitimate customer transactions.

    In this talk, I will focus on how to provide better banking services by using predictive APIs. I will describe the path on how to get there and the challenges of implementing predictive APIs in a strictly audited and regulated domain such as banking. Finally, I will briefly introduce a number of data science techniques to implement those customer journeys and describe how big/fast data engineering can be used to realize predictive data pipelines.

    The presentation will unfold in three parts:

    1) Define banking services: Maslow's law, modern vs traditional banking
    2) Examples predictive and personalized banking experiences
    3) Examples of data science and data engineering pipelines for banking and financial services

  • Analytics in the Cloud Dec 7 2016 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Natalino Busa, Head of Applied Data Science at Teradata
    Today, data is everywhere. As more data streams into cloud-based systems, the combination of data and computing resources gives us today the unprecedented opportunity to perform very sophisticated data analysis and to explore advanced machine learning methods such as deep learning.

    Clouds pack very large amount of computing and storage resources, which can be dynamically allocated to create powerful analytical environments. By accessing those analytics clusters of machines, data analysts and data scientists can quickly evaluate more hypotheses and scenarios in parallel and cost-effectively.

    The number of analytical tools which is supported on various clouds is increasing by the day. The list of analytical tools spans from traditional rdms databases as provided by vendors to analytics open sources projects such as Hadoop Hive, Spark, H2O. Next to provisioning tools and solutions on the cloud, managed services for Data Science, Big Data and Analytics are becoming a popular offering of many clouds.

    Analytics in the cloud provides whole new ways for data analysts, data scientists and business developer to interact with each other, share data and experiments and develop relevant insight towards improved business processes and results. In this talk, I will describe a number of data analytics solutions for the cloud and how they can be added to your current cloud and on-premise landscape.
