  • Join the Informatica Cloud product team on Oct 8th, 2015 to find out what's new in the Fall Release of the Informatica Cloud and explore all the key capabilities.

    During the webinar, you will also have the opportunity to see the new Informatica Cloud platform in action and ask any questions that you may have.

    The Fall 2015 release of the Informatica Cloud is packed with many rich functionalities, including:
    •Automated discovery and parsing of log files to enable cloud analytics on your machine generated data
    •Enhanced Cloud Mapping Designer with new interactive configuration tool and fixed-width file support
    •Highly scalable Cloud Runtime Environment for cloud to cloud integrations

    •Robust Subset Engine for Data Masking transformations with the ability to support complex data models and automatic data chunking for Salesforce to allow horizontal partitioning on large data sets
    •Improved connector capabilities for Amazon S3, NetSuite, Salesforce and SAP. New integrations for Microsoft Azure, Box, Concur and others.
  • Since 1999, Oracle has included a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) within the database. That makes it old enough to drive and well past time to get a real job. In today’s data-obsessed world, that job is fortifying Oracle’s database with a healthy dose of analytics to give your database the power to handle the data challenges of the 21st century.

    There are numerous advantages to adopting a 100% Java code base for in-database analytics. Security is doubly enhanced by performing all analytics in the database. The code is highly portable as the identical java classes that run in the database will run on any client with any operating system. Plus the modern paradigm of taking the algorithms to the data is elegantly achieved with minimal effort.

    Until now, a single Java solution with all these qualities wasn’t available. By using JMSL Numerical Libraries, you get a suite of algorithms with routines for predictive analytics, data mining, regression, forecasting, and data cleaning. JMSL is scalable and can be used in Hadoop MapReduce applications. Now, JMSL Numerical Libraries makes Java in the database more than useful -- it makes it unbeatable.

    This webinar walks through the argument of why embedded analytics is better and provides examples using an Oracle database and JMSL. And if you’re not convinced, tell us so in the live, interactive Q&A!

  • In this webinar, you’ll learn how the Personalized Medicine Initiative (PMI), part of the Life Sciences Institute of the University of BC, has deployed PHEMI Central Big Data Warehouse to collect, store and manage genomic and clinical data for Molecular You (MyCo). Molecular You is a ground breaking program that will provide 20,000 participants a molecular level understanding of themselves over the next 20 years, and provide scientists with new information necessary to detect disease risk and initiate early intervention.

    The speakers for the event are leaders in their respective areas:

    --Rob Fraser, COO of PMI, will share Molecular You’s goals, as well as the leading-edge technology needed to support a variety of personalized medicine initiatives.
    --Roy Wilds, Director of Product Management for PHEMI, will provide additional examples of how Hortonworks and PHEMI Central can help enterprises in healthcare and other industries provide easy access to secure, unified data to their researchers and analysts.
    --Richard Proctor, General Manager, Global Healthcare, Hortonworks, will also talk about how PMI and other life science leaders can leverage Hortonworks Data Platform and PHEMI Central to realize the tremendous potential of precision medicine.

    Join us to learn more about how these technologies create the Path to Wellness through Big Data.
  • Trouble slicing data just the way you want? Survey data got you down? Trouble slicing data just the way you want? Why is it that sometimes data is easy to analyze and other times it seems nearly impossible? This session will explore the wide variety of data out there in the world. We'll look at:

    ·Excel files with odd "shapes"
    ·Working with multiple flat files that contain separate 'chunks' of the same (or similar) data
    ·Free tools that can help you collect, scrape, reformat, and edit data from the web and other sources, all with the idea that all data should have the same chance to express itself!
  • Traditional business intelligence professionals often find it challenging to identify how this new “analytics” craze is any different from what they’ve been doing all along. Other data professionals don’t think much about the difference between BI and data science, because they’re too busy getting amazing results from data science applications like Watson Analytics and Tableau.

    It’s easy to become satisfied with “business as usual”, but what happens when the game changes and more powerful methods become available to derive more value from the same old data? If you want to cut out all the process bulk and really laser target the data and data operations you need… if you want extremely fast results… and if you want to generate data insights that’ll keep you the A-player at your workplace, then you’ll be happy to know that there’s a free (and relatively) easy way to achieve these results by using R programming language.

    In this webinar, you’ll get an introduction to R and the core benefits it offers you. You’ll see the lifecycle of an analytics project, noting how analytics is definitely distinct from traditional business intelligence. And lastly, you’ll get a live demo and tutorial on how you can begin using R to prepare your data for analytics.
  • With ever increasing adoption by vendors and enterprises, Spark is fast becoming the de facto big data platform.

    As a general purpose data processing engine, Spark can be used in both R and Python programmes.

    In this webinar, we'll see how to use Spark to process data from various sources in R and Python and how new tools like Spark SQL and data frames make it easy to perform structured data processing.
  • Omnichannel is at the heart of today's Retail Transformation. However, most retail CIOs still struggle to redesign their technology frameworks to serve today's multichannel connected customer and support a growing number of new ways to shop. Lack of an omnichannel strategy, rigid legacy systems not allowing to leverage the benefits of cloud and mobile technologies, non-single view of customers across channels or lack of inventory visibility across enterprise to support distributed order management capacity are only some of the key challenges retail CIOs are facing.

    This webinar will be conducted by Ismael Ciordia, Chief Technology Officer at Openbravo, Salil Godika, Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer and Industry Group Head at Happiest Minds and introduced by Xavier Places, Product Marketing Director at Openbravo.
