Don't Boil the Data Lake

As a business leader, setting clear objectives to improve the quality of data in your organization is critical. But, being too ambitious could hinder your ability to achieve quick wins and gain support from key stakeholders. To overcome this, you need to avoid ‘boiling the data lake’, a phrase that describes taking the impossible task of transforming your organization’s data management processes overnight. Instead, you should focus on one specific area and follow the DataOps methodology to incrementally change the processes, technology and people’s behavior within your organization. Marc Alvarez, has applied this ‘entrepreneurial’ approach to data management as Vice President of Data Management and Operations at Thomson Reuters. This session will cover why business leaders should treat data less like an IT project and more like a business asset.

Meeting Mission Requirements with Mastered Geospatial Data

As the proliferation of imagery data and mapping information grows across the federal and commercial markets, there is a growing need to consolidate, catalog and curate this data from a variety of sources. Hundreds of data sources across GPS, social media, satellite imagery and other integration points can measure into hundreds of millions of records, perhaps billions. Conflation of geospatial data is necessary to ensure that all data sources (both internal and external) are grouped to provide the most complete information about points and entities of interest.

Breaking all the Rules: Why Finance is Turning to Machine Learning to Manage Data

The sun is setting on the “old ways” of managing data at modern financial institutions. Spurred on by new regulation, intense competition, and the scale of modern data challenge -- mapping and managing information principally based on rules is on the way out.
