451 Research: Key considerations for selecting a best execution venue for data in the cloud

Presented by Matt Aslett, Research Director, 451 Research

Organisations across the globe increasingly view the cloud as a way to reduce storage costs, improve the flexibility of infrastructure, and speed-up their data and analytics processes. Machine learning, IoT and other large-scale data processing technologies are arguably an especially good fit for cloud, and as an increasing amount of data is stored in the cloud, so further data and analytics workloads are attracted to the cloud. With multiple options available - public, private and hybrid cloud - what do organisations need to consider to ensure they select the best execution venue for a particular workload? And how can they avoid becoming ‘locked-in’ with any one provider?

Panel discussion: Cloud

Facilitator: Wim Stoop, Senior Technical Marketing Manager EMEA, Cloudera
Panellists:

  • Dr. Amr Awadallah (Cloudera)
  • Matt Aslett (451 Research)
  • Jason Perkins (BT)
  • Toby Waldock (Deloitte)

GDPR. It’s big. But not impossible

Presented by Pauline Pechberty, EMEA Managing Counsel, Cloudera
Colm Moynihan, Partner Systems Engineering Manager EMEA, Cloudera
Louis Polycarpou, Presales Manager, Big Data Technologies, Informatica

For the majority of organisations, the goal of GDPR compliance presents an enterprise-wide business problem — a massive cross-departmental effort that impacts technology, processes and people. Join this session to understand how the Cloudera platform can simplify your approach to GDPR.

GDPR: what are the advantages of the new regulation?

Presented by Katharine Jarmul, Data Scientist and Founder Kjamistan

Data is the new oil, right? Bigger data and the decisions garnered from it can make or break a business. But with big data, comes organisational and processing hassle along with data provenance and jurisdiction nightmares. With the new EU privacy regulation, GDPR, companies will be expected to process and store their data in an organized, labeled and properly secured manner. A nightmare? Hopefully not! Being a good data maintainer in the eyes of the new regulation has plenty of advantages, including better documentation and data access for your teams, more ethical data gathering, fewer imbalanced models and satisfied customers.
