1. Ajay Bhargava( Big Data Director, TCS) Sep 8 : A Dozen Ways Insurers Can Leverage Big Data for Business Value VOD


    from Global Big Data Conference / Added

    Ajay Bhargava( Big Data Director, TCS) Topic : A Dozen Ways Insurers Can Leverage Big Data for Business Value Abstract : The amount of structured and unstructured, internal and external data coursing into every organization is voluminous and increasing exponentially. Data today comes from disparate sources that include customer interactions across channels such as call centers, telematics devices, social media, agent conversations, smart phones, emails, faxes, police reports, day-to-day business activities, and others. Gartner’s 2011 Top 10 list of IT Infrastructure and Operations Trends predicts an 800 percent growth in data over the next five years. Organizations actually process only about 10 to 15 percent of the available data, almost all of it in structured form. While managing this overwhelming data flow can be challenging, insurers can reap very real benefits like increased productivity, improved competitive advantage and enhanced customer experience by capturing, storing, aggregating, and eventually analyzing the data. This value does not come from simply managing big data, but rather, from harnessing the actionable insights from it. Insurers that can glean objective-driven business value by applying science to their data and deriving insights will maintain a competitive advantage and stay ahead of the curve in this information age. Profile : Ajay Bhargava has more than 25 years of industry, research, and teaching experience in the areas relating to databases, enterprise data management, data warehousing, business intelligence, advanced analytics, and Big Data. He has also contributed to SQL, ODBC and IDAPI database standards. Over the years, he has provided business and technology oriented strategic thinking, advising, management consulting, and built customer-centric solutions for large multi-M$ initiatives for global Fortune 1000 customers across multiple industries. Ajay built the Global Analytics & Big Data practice for TCS Insurance & Healthcare customers, and is based in Austin, Texas. His primary role is to build analytics-driven organizations and solutions for TCS Customers to derive actionable value and outcomes from analytics and big data. In addition to his role at TCS, Ajay is an Adjunct Faculty of CS Department at The University of Texas (UT), Austin, and continues to actively teach and give back to the community.

              from Global Big Data Conference / Added

              Barry Morris(CEO, NuoDB) Topic : The Path to HTAP – Where Big Data Meets Real Time Abstract : The reality of many data-driven businesses is their need for real-time optimization, requiring the ability to do repeatable analytics on very recent data, which traditional database management systems are typically unable to support easily. The workaround - offloading business data to a separate analytics database on an occasional basis – requires additional effort, coordination with the operational applications, and provides only a snapshot of aging data. In this presentation, Barry Morris, CEO and Co-Founder of NuoDB, the leader in webscale distributed databases, will discuss Hybrid Transactional/Analytical Processing (HTAP). HTAP is the ability of a single database to perform both online transaction processing and real-time operational intelligence processing. Barry will examine how to achieve HTAP and the impact it is going to have on the modern enterprise. Profile : Barry Morris is the CEO and Co-Founder of NuoDB, the leader in webscale distributed database technology. Barry is an accomplished software CEO with more than 25 years of industry experience in the USA and Europe, running private and public companies ranging in scale from early startup phase to 1,000+ employees. Among his accomplishments, Barry joined IONA Technologies in the very early days and ultimately as CEO led Ireland's most successful software company through its strongest period of growth.

                  What happens when you set up a social changemaker with a data scientist? How does having a data component shape social change objectives and outcomes? When it is built into a social change strategy from the start, how can data visualization help communicate results? And how do changemakers know when they’ve found their true data connection? Jake Porway, data scientist and nonprofit matchmaker, tells us what makes for a successful marriage. Jake Porway is the founder of DataKind, which seeks to match nonprofits in need of data analysis with freelance and pro bono data scientists who can work to help them with data collection, analysis, visualization or decision support.
