November 16: The Rise of Intelligent Data

Machine leaning, artificial intelligence and internet of things are changing how companies do business.  The strategic management of this multifaceted data drives monetization of data in innovative ways and opens doors for new business models. Multifaceted data management enables executives to benchmark, plan, predict and simulate business scenarios using anonymized and aggregated data.  Machine learning and natural language processing can be used to normalize and enrich business data while adhering to standards for data privacy, security and retention.  This new multifaceted data requires data integration, orchestration, and governance across a complex and diverse data landscape.  While all of this information has the potential to help organizations gain insight into customers and processes, the reality is that most companies today are not equipped to tame, manage, analyze, store, and derive actionable business insights from that abundance of data. This makes it hard for them to realize the value of deploying trusted data efficiently, securely, and to maximum advantage. In this thought leadership webinar, you will gain perspectives from senior leaders who are activity engaged in deriving value,  and using data monetization to gain competitive advantage from strategic multifaceted data management.

Discussion will be led by Randy Carey from Manitou Group and  Jerry Platz from Avalon Consulting, LLC.


December 14:  Harland Clarke’s journey to SAP HANA service on the SAP Cloud Platform to improve cust...


SAP Cloud Platform, SAP HANA service is the most advanced in-memory database fully managed across multiple cloud environments. SAP HANA as a Service implements a next-generation transactional and analytical processing together with the industry's broadest set of advanced analytics that operates on any data – whether physically in SAP HANA or virtually connected into a single logical data model.

This webinar highlights the work Hitachi-Consulting performed with Harland Clarke on migrating SAP Business Warehouse to SAP HANA service.    You will learn the challenges: from the cost of maintaining on-premise landscapes, to the lack of real-time data available for analytics,  to delayed products and order visibility. You will learn how the migration was performed as well as benefits gained, from increased speed, product and order visibility, as well as the impact of real-time reporting.   This new solution transformation has helped  run their customer BI reports 200 times faster at the same time not compromising on the granularity and level of details in these reports.    We will discuss the use of SAP Cloud Integration-Data Services, data modeling in SAP HANA, and how the cloud enables agile development.    We will be sure to cover lessons learned, work arounds, tips and tricks and common road blocks/known issues.

Discussion will be led by Satish Rajaram from Hitachi Consulting and Michael Jones, John Dowling, and Paul Hodgdon from Harland Clarke.
