Modern BI for All: Why Invest in a Unified Data and Analytics Platform

April 21, 2021

Watch the Webinar

Modern business intelligence (BI) seeks to connect more people to insights by unlocking more data, allowing them to ask bigger questions. In the past, providing answers for business folks required an array of different tools, but, over the last two decades, feature consolidation in the BI space has led to a new approach—the Unified Data and Analytics Platform or UDAP. UDAPs provide a single, end-to-end experience that combines the data and analytics stacks—reducing time to in-sight and increasing user adoption.

This webinar will define the key attributes of UDAPs and explore how they democratize business intelligence. In this session, Eckerson Group research analyst Joe Hilleary will speak with Ben Schein, VP of Data Curiosity at Domo, and together they will highlight the benefits of UDAPs for both companies just setting up an analytics environment and those dealing with overly complex ones. They will also explain how cloud-based UDAPs are uniquely positioned to deliver cascading analytics to meet the data needs of clients outside the business.

You will learn:

• The defining traits of UDAP and how their approach differs from previous generations of BI solutions.

• Meaningful use cases and success stories from companies who have implemented a UDAP-based approach to BI.

• How cloud-based UDAPs like Domo facilitate cascading analytics.

Driving Real-Time Operations with Change Data Capture

March 31, 2021

Watch the Webinar

Modern business depends on real-time data integration. Sales, finance, HR, and other operations need to synchronize records across applications, departments, enterprises, regions, and clouds. Real-time data integration also supports data analytics that triggers operational actions such as customer recommendations, proactive maintenance, and fraud detection.

Change data capture (CDC) technology is the gateway to enabling real-time events on complex operational systems. This webinar will explore the requirements, use cases, and guiding principles for driving real-time operations with CDC.

Join us to learn:

- What role CDC plays in hybrid, heterogeneous environments

- Why you need CDC for real-time operations

- How to architect effective CDC pipelines

How to Do DataOps with Snowflake: Tools and Rules

March 11, 2021

Watch the Webinar

You’ve implemented a new cloud data platform using Snowflake. You’re eager to gain the benefits of cloud computing and work in a more agile, scalable way.

But you fear you’ll fall into old habits and simply use Snowflake as a storage depot for various data sets, rather than an agent to transform the way you build data pipelines, process data, and support self-service analytics. DataOps is the key to unlocking the full power of Snowflake and other cloud data platforms. 

DataOps tools and principles can help your team fulfill the promise of delivering data solutions “faster, better, cheaper.” But how do you do that?

This webinar discusses :

  • Challenges of modern data pipelines and benefits of DataOps

  • The DataOps framework

  • Collaboration, orchestration and testing features in DataOps.live

  • How to process IoT data in DataOps.live with Snowflake's zero-copy clone feature 

  • DataOps Snowflake lifecycle management with two approaches—imperative and declarative

The Rise Of Data Observability: Improving The Scale, Performance, And Accuracy of Modern Data Pipelines

March 03, 2021

Watch the Webinar

Exploding data demand and supply pushes modern data pipelines to the breaking point. Data observability seeks to simplify modern data pipelines by monitoring and correlating data workload events across the application, data, and infrastructure layers of the stack. Observability helps resolve the issues that break production analytics and AI workloads.

This webinar discusses:

  • What data observability is.
  • How key stakeholders can use it to meet requirements for production analytics and AI workloads.
  • How data observability applies to three overlapping segments—on-premises data lakes, hybrid cloud and multi-cloud data warehouses.
  • Role of data observability in data modernization and digital transformation.
  • Data observability best-practices and use-cases of adoption.

Are you a data laggard or data leader? Your roadmap to becoming a data-driven organization

October 14, 2020

Watch the Webinar

There is a growing divide between organizations that use data effectively and those that don’t. Data laggards don’t prioritize data; consequently, data is fragmented and siloed, and business users spend long hours cleaning and harmonizing it. There are no standard metrics or reports, and no one trusts or shares data. These companies find themselves spending more time arguing about data than acting upon it.

In contrast, the data elite live and breathe data; employees trust the data and take an active role in governing it. Executives use standard metrics and reports when making decisions. Analysts spend more time analyzing data than finding and cleaning it. These organizations use data to work proactively and apply algorithms to optimize or automate business processes.

Attend this webinar, and you will discover:

● What separate data laggards from the data elite

● A formula for crossing the data divide: P4+D=V

● A five-stage maturity model for evaluating progress

● How to assess your organization’s data maturity online

● The three C’s practiced by the data elite

Please register for the webinar today to learn about the journey to becoming data-driven, the technologies, tools, and techniques the data elite use to transform their organizations and disrupt industries. The webinar will highlight an Eckerson Group online assessment that helps organizations assess the degree to which they are data-driven.
