BI, Big Data, IoT and Analytics: Building the Data Driven Culture for Today’s Mobile, Interconnected World

Chris Santiago, Managing Consultant, Project Leadership Associates (PLA)
Shabbir Mala, Technical Architect, Business Intelligence, Project Leadership Associates (PLA)

Traditionally, BI has consolidated data from a company’s internal transaction systems and made it available for enterprise reports, dashboards, and queries. Big Data technologies capture a variety of data types, such as social media entries, mobile device information, sensor data from machines, meters, personal devices, and so forth, often with high data volumes, from outside the company.

The emergence of Big Data fundamentally challenges current approaches to data management, enterprise reporting, and analytics. A new information strategy is needed for the mobile, interconnected world in which businesses operate today.

Imagine Delivering New Analytics Every 2 Weeks ... Is It Possible

Eddie Francl, Senior Architect, Centric Consulting
Bill Chamberlain, Partner, Centric Consulting

Business Intelligence projects have a history and reputation of being large, expensive, and unwieldy. What if you were able to deliver impactful analytics to your business teams in weeks vs months/years? Learn how focusing on key business data enables your BI team to deliver high quality and impactful information in unheard of timeframes. Build executive confidence and commitment from the start of your project to deliver high value data and at low risk.

In this session, attendees will learn:

  • A new approach and perspective to delivering business intelligence projects
  • How to take a business-first focused approach (vs. a source system approach)
  • The key components to delivery
  • Techniques on keeping the project and team lean

Data, Analytics and the Breach: How to Tackle Big Data from a Security Point of View

Phil Sewell, Technical Director, Solutions Architecture, HP Security Voltage

Big Data is an immensely popular discussion point, but are we asking the right questions? From a security perspective, there are two main areas of concern: securing the organization and its customers’ information; and using Big Data techniques to analyze, and predict, security incidents.

In this session, attendees will learn how and when to involve security in their big data efforts and what steps they should take.






2:30pm - 3:00pm - Refreshment Break

Roeseler 

3:00pm-4:00pm

BI Reference Architecture: Developing Predictive and Prescriptive Business Analytics

Armin Roeseler, CIO, DirectBuy

Armin Roeseler, CIO, DirectBuy will show how a Business Intelligence (BI) function in a corporate environment can be elevated to provide foresighted analytics that enable decision-makers to better position themselves vis-à-vis an uncertain future. Through the deployment of a suitable BI architecture, coupled with the selection of appropriate analysis tools, we provide a framework for advanced analytics. This framework not only helps to explain the operational past, but also enables analysts to predict future business outcomes. The elements of the BI architecture are introduced, and key characteristics of analysis tools are presented. Finally, two case studies will show how an elevated BI function contributes to budget allocation decisions for marketing channels, and how customer retention can be improved through targeted membership outreach campaigns in a retail environment. These case studies will display how the application of the reference architecture leads to real, tangible results in an Enterprise context.









 

4:00pm-5:00pm

The Analytics Lab: An Approach for Creating and Harnessing Fact-based Insight

Maureen M. Penzenik, VP , Technology–Architecture/Innovation, The Northern Trust

Analytics has become a trendy business buzzword. How this word translates into what we actually do with data is as varied as the data itself. Creating an “analytics lab” to collect data from disparate systems across an organization and interrogate it can provide a flexible environment in which to learn and grow with the data and use cases. Hear about the use cases, successes, challenges, and lessons learned from Northern Trust’s work in building and using an analytics lab.

Related topics that will be covered:

  • Moving Beyond Business Intelligence – Incorporating Big Data & Analytics into Your BI & Data Strategy
  • Implementing Governance in your BI/Analytics Strategy: How to Broadly Deploy Secure, Governed Self-Service Analytics to Business Users
