Shifting the IT Paradigm: How to Focus on User Experience
Date: Sep 19, 2018

View archived webinar

We've actively shifted into the information age. This, alone, has caused a vast increase in data, the way we leverage technology, solutions, and how we - as users and customers - consume technology. To help work with all of this information, new solutions have been impacting users, organizations, and our entire industry. Plus, we are operating in day-to-day situations full of complexity, data avalanches, constant change to the fundamental ways work gets done. As we implement new tools and processes, manage technology infrastructure and tools, and lead our teams, how do we stay focused on creating business value for our companies and employees? Remember, your users and customers aren't just 'consuming' technology, they're leveraging these solutions for work, home, and - literally - every minute of their lives. This means we can't just give users a piece of technology. Rather, we have to give them an experience; preferably a positive one.
In this session, we'll offer strategies and tips for IT leaders and staff to serve their users and customers -- both internal and external -- by understanding the behaviors and business outcomes that are most important. We'll examine how the modern user has evolved and where they require good experiences. From there, we'll offer examples and strategies that enable IT to support all its customers, discussing how to best support technology initiatives that drive the business forward and examining how the modern workforce is evolving, requiring new tools to help employees optimize productivity and performance.

Continuous Security Validation for Banking, Financial Services and Insurance
Date: Aug 28, 2018

View archived webinar

Enterprises are projected to spend an estimated $96 billion on security products and services in 2018. But will they have the empirical data to know if those investments actually reduce their exposure to threats? In our discussions with chief information security officers (CISOs), within the financial services industry, this lack of information is a recurring topic of concern.

Supporting this need for ongoing measurement, governments and regulators have produced a number of frameworks that apply to the financial services industry, including NIST, FFIEC, and GDPR (if conducting business in the European Union). All of these frameworks contain mandates for measuring and monitoring security controls. If you have not yet done so, now is the time to think about the resources you will need to implement a successful continuous monitoring program.

Anil Nandigam, Senior Director of Product Marketing with NSS Labs, will conduct a live demonstration of the Continuous Security Validation Platform. This cloud-based customizable platform provides real-time empirical data regarding the effectiveness of enterprise security controls and also reveals the operating systems and applications most often targeted by today’s active threats.

Active Archive and Data Repository with Hadoop
Date: Jul 31, 2018

View archived webinar

Once you've begun to use Hadoop for ETL offload, the next logical steps on your journey toward the data warehouse of the future are to create an active archive and a data repository.

Most organizations have structured data they rarely access, but do not want to delete. Moving this cold data into Hadoop for active archive keeps it available for analytics and search while lowering costs. In fact, according to one study, storing data in Hadoop instead of a legacy data warehouse saved organizations $15 million on hardware costs.

Moving siloed and unstructured data to Hadoop makes more data available for advanced analytics, which helps companies increase profits, reduce fraud, decrease reporting costs and boost productivity. It also sets them up for the final step in the journey: Lambda Architecture with In-Memory Technology.

Most data-driven businesses understand the need for data governance. But even if you have a data governance plan in place, it’s time to take a fresh look at its effectiveness in a world marked by cyber breaches, law suits and the dawn of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with its global impact. The key lies in having a formal strategy – a mandate –  for data governance, executive support and the monetary and human resources to successfully implement it.
In this webinar, you’ll learn how organizations such as yours can enable data governance initiatives, including how to overcome barriers to success. We’ll discuss erwin’s recent State of Data Governance Report and offer recommendations on the measures you can take to fast-track your data governance effort, whether you’re just getting started or you need to examine your existing governance initiative in light of today’s business and technology challenges.

Back in 2012, the data scientist was declared "the sexiest job of the 21st century," largely due to the huge amount of potential for these professionals to create business value from countless volumes of messy data. Here it is almost 2018, and data professionals continue to find themselves with the most sought-after expertise in the US. That's because data creation is happening at lightning speeds from sources that multiply daily.

Data is coming at us fast, and not just via streaming big data. The role of the data professional becomes even more challenging as new database types, services and features are being delivered at a faster rate. Add to this a mix of new compliance and legislative changes and even the most savvy professionals are struggling to keep up.
