You are invited to your peers for an interactive "Analytics-in-the-D" Lunch and Learn

Whether it is teaching an autonomous vehicle how to drive, improving customer retention and engagement, finding anomalous activity before harm is done or delivering AIOps in a data center environment, learn how bringing the compute to the data across data warehouses and data lakes drives better business outcomes around Customer Experience, Operational Analytics and Service Assurance at a fraction of the complexity and cost. 

Learn how the most innovative enterprises -- across all industry verticals -- optimize value from their data warehouses while delivering the predictive analytical insights that differentiate them from their competition.   

You will leave this seminar with fresh ideas to move your analytic journey forward by converging data management with data science faster and more insightfully on premise, in the clouds and on the edge so that you get the insights when the data is still relevant and actionable.

The proliferation of mobility, or geo-reference data (I.e., GPS, smart-phones, geo-tagged social media), is generated by the explosive number of connected "things" IoT sensor devices, connected and autonomous vehicles, networked transport, and smart urban systems. Socially disruptive and posing new data management challenges, effective new big data algorithmic analytics strategies are emerging so teams can more quickly detect different cluster patterns over the course of a perishable trajectory lifespan.  Learn how mobility is transforming data science techniques from R&D to supply chain, manufacturing, distribution, customer experience, sales, and marketing.
