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

Patient Centricity and the Future is Now

The democratization of clinical trials is disruptive and that’s a good thing. Join this talk with MDGroup's Chief Data Scientist Richard Maguire as he discusses:

Managing the Big Data Wave

- Performant Infrastructure not only to manage the data size and types, structured & unstructured, but to manage Compute at Scale
- A Data Lake allows you to manage the wave of data by capturing all of it
- Next step is to store data in a proper data store for data type and ensure that the data is clean
- Then, you need to analyze the data for decision making

Managing the Big Textual Data that is Usually Forgotten

- Textual Data is Normally Siloed, not because it is unimportant, but because many do not know how to manage it
- Natural Language Processing (NLP) uses linguistic and semantic parsing to uncover patterns that can be deployed in predictive analytics

COVID-19 has Accelerated Move to Virtual Trials & Wearable Sensors: Disruptive Event & Technology

- Major Benefit is Continuous Patient Sensor Data, so NOT Episodic
- This means making correlations and predictions more accurate
- The challenge is the size of this data stream as it can become a tsunami
- Data Management and Data Cleaning are Paramount
- Virtual Clinical Trials: The Future is Here Now

  • Rethinking Data Governance and Data Integration for a cloud-based digital world Dec 15 2020 1:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Kat Holmes, Global Director of Data Governance at Travelex
    Within the Data Revolution there has been a lot of focus on Data Governance in the last couple of years for two reasons: Value and importance of data and analytics to a company’s business strategy has grown exponentially. And regulatory change globally means it can’t be pushed aside.


    Data Governance has been around a long time, especially in financial services, but how should the capability change to keep up with the following trends in data and technology?

    * Cloud based infrastructure, applications and data platforms

    * Digital technologies

    * AI technologies, both in data and more broadly

    * Laser focus on the customer experience and outcomes


    Many companies are struggling with the dichotomy between: Needing to build agile data and analytics capabilities that can rapidly deliver value to the business. And needing to ensure the data in these use cases is governed - compliant to an ever-increasing complex regulatory environment, and also trusted and accurate.

    To resolve this dichotomy data governance needs to change to be aligned to the new paradigms in data and technology.  


    We will talk a bit more about the relationship between Data Governance and Data Integration/Data Engineering in this new way of thinking.


    Let’s recap what rethinking Data Governance and Data Integration means:

    -Embedding Data Governance into the operating model for analytics use case delivery.

    -Implementing AI enabled technologies to run data governance, to be lean and fast.

    -Focussing firmly on enabling safe innovation rather than compliance.

    -Use industry standards not bespoke models that are costly to develop and maintain.

    -Work towards real time data integration, transforming and governing the data in the data platform.

    Dirk Hofmann, Co-Founder and CEO at DAIN Studios
    Data and AI adoption calls for strong determination and persistence from the leadership. It should be on the agenda for leadership meetings from the board, the C-suite to senior managers. “We observe that fully committed leadership has been one of the common denominators for success in digital transformation and becoming a data-driven company”.

    Dirk Hofmann, co-founder and CEO of DAIN Studios Germany will talk about this and other findings that we have made in the course of more than 40 Data and AI initiatives with different companies and industries in Europe.

    You will hear concrete and practical recommendations on:
    · setting your ambition level by creating a data and AI vision, and identifying the most lucrative data opportunities
    · building your data asset and data governance models
    · defining the solution architecture that covers end-to-end use cases for machine learning applications
    · hiring the right people for both technical and business related roles, highlighting the key role of an AI strategist for getting business impact
    · setting up the data and AI organization and operating model that fits the maturity of the company

    During the course of the talk, Dirk will bring practical examples from the companies we have worked with in insurance, aviation, telecommunications, consumer goods and other sectors.

  • Through the Fog and Beyond the Edge: Cloud Analytics for New Hybridity Practices Recorded: Sep 15 2020 60 mins
    Jérémie Farret, Vice President Advanced Analytics and A.I., Inmind Technologies
    Hybrid Computing, and thus Hybrid Analytics are concepts which are undergoing accelerated mutations, with the introduction of Edge and Fog Computing, in the wake of new mobility and IoT communication protocols, technologies and practices being phased in the Industry on a daily basis, 5G being its latest illustration. Our objective will be to shed some light on the various impacts, both positive and challenging, that these transformations impose on Cloud Analytics.

    This session will first address what these changes spell out for Cloud Analytics and in particular, what are the new considerations, key assets and enabling paradigms being introduced, both in terms of functional architectures and underlying infrastructures supporting the ingestion, distributed treatment and produced insights, in the cloud, in the fog, and at the edge, along with the unlocked potentials but also the pitfalls associated to them.

    As a part in these considerations, the session will address the intrinsic security, information privacy and data protection concerns, and the specific hybrid specificities which allow for new ways to compartment privacy and protect anonymity while maintaining the same descriptive and predictive capabilities. Unfortunately, we’ll see that these new hybrid architectures can also harbor new combinations of vulnerabilities.

    The session will then introduce the invariants of Cloud Analytics and put them in perspective with the previous transformations. In the wake of such changes, some traditional practices still apply and suffer little or even no changes from the introduction of Edge and Fog Computing paradigms.

    Finally, some illustrations will be given, using real world, in production implementations in the telecommunication industry. Q&A will follow.

  • Why and how to start with a strategy before moving directly to cloud Recorded: Sep 10 2020 26 mins
    Özgür Kaynar, General Manager & Founding Partner, Analythinx
    Moving to the cloud looks easy, but in reality not all vendors and features are at the same level of maturity and capability.

    Going with just cost and ease of installation/set up criteria most of the time fails or brings some disappointment when things gets complex and more dense.

    With a trusted advisor perspective, don't start with cloud options and features, instead start with:

    - Understanding business strategy and mission of the company
    - Business value cases which would be gathered with data and analytics
    - Crosscheck with architecture / IT teams
    - Evaluate cloud vendors based on facts and solid use cases

    We at Analythinx have developed an evaluation tool which could be used through this kind of strategy and roadmap work for any company seeking a short or long term cloud strategy.

  • Bringing true analytics value to Boardroom – but how? Recorded: Sep 8 2020 47 mins
    Asko Kupiainen, Director, Products and Services, QROi Analytics
    Making business analytics can be paradoxically challenging. Having data alone, even with clear actionable insights, will not be enough for dynamic business needs of 2020's. On one hand there is need to know what to analyze and act fast according to insights. On the another hand there is always uncertainty; do we have the right data basis for capturing the real value, is this important enough, what is the business impact.

    Management teams are having tough call to rely on right information being at hand. More often than not, that means further insights, further actions, yet another analysis, various business cases, leading to time lost, endless (remote) meetings, new reviews and finally opportunities vanishing.

    Things could be different, though.

    In this presentation, we’ll discuss how to bring the real value to boardroom through monetized business analytics. With directly commercialized analytics, critical aspects are prioritized by real value created, payback times covered, with business impacts readily available. All that in common boardroom language - money.

  • Data Governance and The Art of the Fugue Recorded: Jun 9 2020 46 mins
    Randy Gordon, Data Governance Leader
    Elaborating on his article, "Data Governance and The Art of the Fugue," Randy will guide the audience through a layperson's explanation of what a fugue is, using J.S. Bach's The Art of the Fugue as an example, and draw parallels between its structure and that of data governance frameworks. Today’s data, in its near-infinite variety of sources and types, resembles polyphonic music such as fugues more so than homophonic music like popular songs. But combining independent melodic lines is just as difficult as understanding disparate data sets.

    Without some guidelines, the result is cacophony, when sounds combine with no rhyme or reason, and the ear hears nothing but harshly clashing noise. In the data world, we have the same situation when data lakes become data swamps, filled with in-comprehensive information not fit for any use, because of the lack of data governance.

    Randy will also explore these ideas:
    - How the subject of the fugue provides the listener guideposts similar to how metadata and lineage help analysts navigate data
    - How following the fugue "governance framework" allowed Bach to compose with enormous inventiveness while still providing his listeners a transparent structure even with many moving parts
    - How a similar approach to creating a data governance can fuel innovation

    In conclusion, Randy will demonstrate how this musical perspective can enable a rethinking of the very goal of data governance, a goal extremely relevant to the world of exploding, ever changing data we live in today.

    About the speaker:
    Randy Gordon is a data governance professional with over 10 years of experience in leadership roles in financial services. Most recently, at Moody’s, Randy established their first formal data governance program, building the data governance framework, principles, standards, and organization.
