Presentation: Architecting a Data Synchronized Business with a Modern Data Stack

For decades, businesses have aspired to be ‘data-driven’. What does being ‘data-driven’ really mean? Surely it’s got to mean more than everyone staring at dashboards…more than everyone having access to the latest release of Microsoft Excel…more than everyone in an organization being able to query data… more than an organization spinning up a modern data stack. Even if all of the above were true, it begs the question ‘So what?’

That’s the problem with chasing ‘data-drivenness’ – it sort of means nothing. We contend that businesses must focus on synchronizing their business processes with data and have a clear objective to pursue -minimizing the delay between when the data suggests an opportunity to optimize and when the business is able to act on the same. At one extreme, we have recommendation engines and online ad serving systems that operate at near real-time – given the characteristics of the situation, these algorithms serve up content that optimizes revenue for the business.

We also note how traditionally brick-and-mortar big box retailers have been forced to rethink the timescales at which they fulfill inventory or run promotions in response to the speed at which large, fully online retailers are able to operate. What is happening is a sweeping trend to get business processes to move at the speed at which data intensive algorithms generate new insights. In this webinar, we discuss a blueprint for businesses to evolve to data-synchronized organizations using a modern data stack. We will explain why we view this transformation as one that’s readily accessible to organizations of all sizes, due to recent advances in analytical compute and storage, emergence of intuitive products coupled with the affordable economics of SaaS. We will cover how Sigma’s Workbooks are the center of driving this transformation in businesses across industry verticals.

Presentation: The Gap between Insight and Impact – Challenges to Building a Data-driven Organization

  • Organizations have scaled up their investments in Big Data and AI, however, a majority of key data and analytics executives report that business adoption of Data and AI initiatives still pose a major challenge.
  • Adoption is often the last step in the analytics value chain and the insights gained from these analytics initiatives often fail to drive action.
  • In this presentation, we will deep dive into the key challenges causing this gap between insights and impact in an organization and discuss recommendations to bridge the same.

Presentation: Presto for Your Data Lakehouse

Today, data lakes are widely used and have become extremely affordable as data volumes have grown. However, they are only meant for storage and by themselves provide no direct value. With up to 80% of data stored in the data lake today, how do you unlock the value of the data lake? The value lies in the compute engine that runs on top of a data lake.

During this session, Ahana Product Manager Rohan Pednekar will discuss how to unlock the value of your data lake with the emerging Open Data Lakehouse architecture and why Presto, the open source SQL query engine, is critical to this approach. Finally, he will show why Ahana Cloud is the easiest way to deploy and run Presto on AWS S3.
