#InteropITX – Finding Actionable Insights in Enterprise Data

May 3, 2018   //   by Karen Lopez   //   Analytics, Blog, Cloud, Data  //  No Comments

In the second session of the day, Andi Mann of Splunk talks about taking action with data.

Finding Actionable Insights in Enterprise Data

Speaker: Andi Mann (Chief Technology Advocate, Splunk)

Machine Learning Process: Find data.  Select Models, Apply and Learn, Deploy

 

Andi spoke about all kinds of methods for drawing insights out of data. Machine Learning, data visualizations, video analytics, etc.

Some of his key points:

  • “Where are the problems?”  How data visualization is so important to getting information fast
  • Shared data helps find and fix problems faster
  • How to use data analytics for better application deployment

I think the last one is important: we IT folks and data professionals tend think of rolling out innovative approaches for our business users, but hardly ever invest in these methods for ourselves.

#InteropITX – Data Analytics Panel

May 3, 2018   //   by Karen Lopez   //   Analytics, Blog, Compliance and Regulation, Data  //  No Comments

Today is day one of regular sessions at InteropITX 2018. I’m honoured to be the chair for the Data and Analytics track at this year’s event.

We are starting with a panel of data professionals:

InteropITX Data Analytics Panel

Harmonizing Business and IT: Data as the Driver

Speakers: Donald Farmer (CEO, Treehive Strategy), Danielle Funston (VP, Blueprint), Romi Mahajan (Director, Blueprint), Erick Watson (Chief Product Officer, Quantarium)

Some of the best topics they chatted about.

  • Does our lack of common vocabulary or taxonomy in our organizations hurt us? Is it the reason for the ongoing challenges of Business/IT collaboration?
  • How do we get the business to understand data governance, security and privacy requirements.
  • Do all these compliance and governance requirements mean that small and medium-sized businesses should outsource more of their IT resources?  Should this mean moving to the cloud?
  • GDPR will test whether or not businesses and IT are working together.

Our moderator, Romi Majaran had a question that got right to heart of the “IT/Business Singularity”: When will we solve this problem so that we can stop having to have these panels?

A great question.

#InteropITX – Drowning in IoT Data

May 3, 2018   //   by Karen Lopez   //   Analytics, Blog, Cloud, Data  //  No Comments

Dave McCarthy of Bsquare, is starting our Data track today with a presentation on leveraging analytics on IoT projects.

Automation is essential slide. Lightbulb flowing into 2 paths, one for automated processes and another for Human processes.

Drowning in IoT Data: Why Adaptive Diagnostics is the Difference Between Sinking and Swimming

Speaker: Dave McCarthy (Senior Director, Products, Bsquare)

Dave made these major observations:

  • Automation is essential to supporting the volume of IoT data
  • Edge Computing (processing data at the source before sending it) is essential
  • Adaptive Diagnostics is a data driven way of dealing with errors and alerts. It is more efficient and leads to more accurate repairs.

Out of this presentation, I was most interested in the Adaptive Diagnostics.  I think because this is also the future of IT management. More machine learning and AI in IT management, especially in emergency response scenarios.
