Big Iron, Meet Big Data: Liberating Mainframe Data with Hadoop & Spark

It’s exciting to think about all the cool new frameworks and data sources out there, and the promise they hold. Spark and MapReduce, Kafka and NiFi – they all have their place in the ecosystem, but we can’t forget about legacy systems, which often hold a wealth of historical and customer data. Present day initiatives must find ways to integrate big iron with big data, while looking toward the future.  

Register for this episode of Hot Technologies to hear Data Scientist Dez Blanchfield and veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor as they discuss how organizations can maximize potential of their legacy systems as well as their data lake by fusing legacy and modern architectures. They’ll be briefed by Tendü Yoğurtçu of Syncsort, who will show how her company’s Mainframe Access and Integration solution blends mainframe and other enterprise data – batch and streaming – with Hadoop and Spark in a single pipeline. She’ll explain how Syncsort DMX-h greatly simplifies analytics, compliance and audits, and “future-proofs” applications with a design-once, deploy-anywhere approach.

Keys to the Kingdom: Managing SQL Server with Dynamic Discovery

No one wants to pay for something that isn’t being used. In the database world, this boils down to unnecessary licenses, usually for SQL Server. Without granular visibility into server inventory, unwanted sprawl will happen, leading to mismanaged data and the likelihood of serious licensing costs and other issues. Companies need to know where data lives and how it’s being used, and ideally have the ability to dynamically discover and adjust their environment as needed.

Register for this episode of Hot Technologies to learn from Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor and Data Scientist Dez Blanchfield as they discuss the challenges and benefits of license inventory. They’ll be briefed by Bullett Manale from IDERA, who will showcase SQL Inventory Manager, a tailor-made solution for server discovery and management. He’ll explain how nailing down your inventory can lead to a reduction in licensing costs and greater compliance, while providing DBAs with automated tools to manage, troubleshoot and maintain a healthy server environment.

The Biggest Picture: Knowing Your Customer Across Multiple Platforms

Customer data lives everywhere, and in all kinds of systems: ERP, CRM, sales automation, online marketing, the list goes on. And while many of these applications remain on-prem, many more are in the cloud, which creates an even more fragmented view. Stitching together a complete picture of customers across these systems can yield tremendous value, both financially and in terms of customer service.

Register for this episode of Hot Technologies to hear Data Scientist Dez Blanchfield, and Chief Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor, explain how today’s customer-centric organizations are staying ahead of the curve by synthesizing data across a range of systems. They’ll be briefed by John Evans and Diana Collins of Magnitude Software, who will showcase Magnitude ONE, which offers the ability to manage and master customer data from on premises and cloud sources. They will show how this solution enables connectivity across the most popular systems in play today, including Microsoft Dynamics, Oracle eBusiness Suite, Salesforce.com, Marketo, Hubspot and many others, all via their alliance with Scribe Software.

The Modern Data Catalog: A High-Definition View

Tuesday, May 24 @ 4 ET

As expert suppliers of data, IT teams have traditionally created data inventories to track the source, quality & governance of enterprise data. But how does this process change as data becomes a business utility rather than an IT asset? Hadoop has lowered costs for storage and analysis, while tools for self-service data visualization have democratized data access. Data scientists are the new data experts. Where does this leave IT?

Advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning and natural language processing are enabling smart systems that extend data inventories into intelligent data catalogs. These systems encourage broad-based data consumption and provide a framework for intelligent interventions. Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear Data Scientist Dez Blanchfield explain why strategically cataloging data is finally possible. He’ll be briefed Satyen Sangani, CEO of Alation, who will show how the Alation Data Catalog is designed for human-machine collaboration that increases the consumption of data while ensuring accuracy, transparency & trust in data.

Reinvention: The Modern Data-to-Insight Pipeline

Tuesday, May 17 @ 4 ET

Getting data ready for use, whether for self-service analytics, building data products or any other data use case, shouldn’t be hard. Yet, traditional tools and processes require an overwhelming amount of time (and resourcing) to get through the murky realm between raw data and usable information. Ideally, the preparation process should be as fluid and interactive as possible, allowing everyone who needs information to access, clean, organize and transform data as quickly as they need it and with the context that makes sense for their use case.

Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to learn from veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor as he explains how data prep automation can drive faster enterprise decisions. He’ll be briefed by Nenshad Bardoliwalla, Chief Product Officer of Paxata, who will discuss how his company’s approach to data preparation provides a scalable, connected information platform that eliminates the manual processes and risks which plague the traditional data management pipeline. He’ll explain how machine learning, distributed computing, Cloud and user experience innovations allow us to completely reinvent the middle layer for a modern data-to-insight pipeline.
