Maximizing Return on Big Data
Never before have we experienced such a profound transformative change in computing,
which is taking the notion of “the information age” to a level unimagined even a
few years ago. Cloud, social and mobile computing are changing everything in the
world of data, and leading to the massive rise in variety, complexity and volume
now dubbed “big data”. Capitalizing on the business value of big data while avoiding
unforeseen cost, complexity, and risk has become critical to your future success.
In this session, you will...
- Uncover disciplines for measuring and continuously maximizing your “return on data”,
defined as the value of data divided by the cost of data
- Understand the impact of these megatrends on how you create, manage and utilize
- Examine the multiple facets of the big data phenomenon, and its impact on your organization
- Learn about the latest release of the Informatica Platform, Informatica 9.5, and
the capabilities necessary to ensure that you don’t merely cope in the era of big
data, but that you thrive.
Big Data Analytics
The most alluring promise of big data is analytics — analytics that provide key
insights into business operations or customer behavior to deliver top line growth,
cost reduction, or risk mitigation. However, organizations struggle with the daunting
tasks of handling such large volumes of data, processing it, and making sense of
it. Adding to the volume challenge, the velocity, complexity and variety of data
also continue to increase exponentially. Traditional approaches to integrating and
preparing data for analysis simply can’t cope with new big data requirements. To
harness the analytical power of new computing technologies, including big data appliances
and Hadoop, organizations need to master the latest in big data integration architectures
and techniques. In this session, you will learn...
- The challenges associated with big data analytics
- The key requirements and best practice approaches for big data integration
- Approaches for bridging the gap between traditional and big data analytical environments.
Data Privacy – Protecting Data to Ensure Compliance
More than 84 percent of corporations have suffered at least one data breach in the
last year. Sensitive data needs to be protected, both to safeguard it from unauthorized
use and to comply with a growing number of privacy regulations. Learn about the
unique capabilities provided by Informatica’s Dynamic Data Masking product, and
how customers are using it to protect sensitive information in real time—without
costly, time-consuming changes to applications and databases. In this session, you
- Benefits of policy-driven security and monitoring for applications
- What Informatica’s new Dynamic Data Masking offers
- How to secure both production and nonproduction (development, test, training) environments.
