TRACKS
9:30 – 10:00

Customer Case Study: Accelerating Cloud Analytics Using Big Data Fabric.
Presenter: Avinash Deshpande, Chief Software Architect, Big Data and Advanced Analytics, Logitech.

Data Virtualization was critical in Logitech’s cloud journey with minimal impact on business operations. The Data Virtualization Platform acts as a big data fabric layer, sourcing data for all of Logitech’s analytics initiatives from descriptive to prescriptive to predictive analytics including NLP. In this session, Logitech's Principal for Big Data and Advanced Analytics, Avinash Deshpande will explain:

  • Built a hybrid data fabric to integrate and deliver information across on-premises and cloud seamlessly.
  • Empowered business users with a symbiotic environment for rapid innovation with guardrails.
  • Reduced TCO such as infrastructure and operational expenses while reaching exceptional service levels.
  • Optimized core business functions.

Customer Case Study: Enabling a Big Data Fabric through Real-time, Agile, and IoT Aware Data Services.
Presenter: Clinton Cohagan, Chief Enterprise Information Architect, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

Streaming real-time data from Internet of Things holds new promise. Businesses require assessing performance of machines / processes and adjusting on-the-fly to ensure optimal performance. But to make sense of the streaming data, it needs to be combined with the information about the part, machine, owner, location, etc., which are stored in other enterprise systems. Big Data Fabric combines the streaming data with related enterprise data to deliver holistic information. In this presentation, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s Chief Enterprise Information Architect, Clinton Cohagan will educate:

  • An Overview of Data Virtualization’s Evolution from Federation to Big Data Fabric.
  • How ETL differs and can be merged with Data Virtualization.
  • How streaming data is valuable in today’s fast-paced work environment.
  • Why you need to upgrade your data architecture to include Big Data Fabric.
  • Technical capabilities needed in Big Data Fabric to integrate IoT data now and in the future.
10:00 – 10:30

Partner Presentation: Applying a Three-Tiered Data Strategy
Presenter: Dan Kogan, Director of Product Marketing, Tableau.

Is your organization drowning in the data lake too? Leading big data organizations are leveraging a multi-tiered approach to data for consumption in Tableau.

In this session, we will:

  • Present the challenges of visualizing big data.
  • Establish best practices for leveraging Hadoop/Spark directly, and through the Big data Fabric layer such as Data Virtualization.
  • Share Big Data Customer Use Cases.

Partner Presentation: Powering The Future Of Data.
Presenter: Piet Loubser, VP of Product and Solutions Marketing, Hortonworks.

The last 10 years we have focused on accumulating untold volumes of data-at-rest, predicted to grow to 40+Zetabytes by the end of the decade. The next frontier master is data-in-motion – the data that is flowing from billions of sensors that are instrumenting every machine, device and person. Unique actionable intelligence lives at the intersection of these two domains when IoT data meets machine learning and artificial intelligence. Hear how leading organizations harness next-gen connected data platforms to drive transformative data initiatives.
10:30 – 11:00

Demo: Data Virtualization as a Core Component of Big Data Fabric
Presenter: Pablo Alvarez, Director of Solutions Consulting, Denodo.

Big data fabric combines essential big data capabilities in a single platform to automate the many facets of data discovery, preparation, curation, orchestration, and integration across a multitude of data sources. Attend this session to view the demonstration of big data fabric, and to learn how data virtualization constitutes a recipe for:

  • Enabling new actionable insights with minimal effort
  • Securing big data end-to-end
  • Addressing big data skillset scarcity
  • Providing easy access to big data without having to decipher various data formats
11:00 – 11:30

Partner Presentation: Data Architectures For Agile Analytics.
Presenter: Nouras Haddad, Director of Technology Alliances, Looker.

Businesses need agility and speed to outsmart competition. Traditional integration technologies such as ETL, for materializing views and replicating data are rapidly being replaced by agile data modeling and modern data applications. In this presentation, Looker will address:

  • The challenges of traditional analytical approaches.
  • The journey to Agile Analytics.
  • Use cases and logical architectures from successful implementations.

Partner Presentation: Intelligent MDM for Big Data.
Presenter: Salah Kamel, CEO, Semarchy.

Organizations can provide a true 360-degree view of critical master data entities by exploiting big data like social data. MDM provides a meaningful context to big data and a complete view of critical master data entities such as product, customer and employee.

In this presentation, Semarchy will discuss:

  • Why MDM is crucial to the success of big data projects.
  • How to combine MDM and Data Virtualization to provide a complete view of the customer.
  • Practical use cases representing big data and MDM.
