Introduction to the Delphix Dynamic Data Platform Wednesday, October 4 2017 - 10:00AM MDT Tune-in to the webinar to hear Patrick Lightbody, SVP of Products unpack how the Delphix Data Platform can deliver faster, secure and flexible data for your most important projects: • Application and Data Acceleration: Companies can now treat data like code by recording every change and reconstruction to any point in time. Storing, compressing and replicating data in near-real time means data no longer slows businesses down. • Data Privacy and Security: Enterprises can prevent unintentional release of sensitive data with control over access, retention, and audits. They can also mask sensitive data in critical applications to prevent release of personally identifiable information. • Cloud Adoption: Enterprises moving data to the cloud can move massive amounts of data once but still refresh it from on-premise or hybrid sources.

451 Research: Achieving Faster Access to Secure Data In a DataOps Environment Thursday, October 12 2017 - 10:00AM MDT We really do believe a dataops platform seriously changes the game. Data consumers are being asked by the business to go faster and innovate faster. Data operators are being asked to secure the data and make sure that it can scale and that nothing is lost and that it’s all backed up. They’re all doing the right thing, and yet there’s this incredible amount of friction in large part because it’s a reactive model. It’s always about the consumers asking the operators to provision a new data source or to back up to the last refresh to the last snapshot of production from two months ago.

Back to Basics - Delivering Awesome Products with Agile! In the early days of Agile, the organizations that ‘got it’ didn’t need a playbook of frameworks, tools, and methods. They rallied around the 4 simple values and 12 timeless principles that formed the Agile Manifesto. Over the last 16 years, Agile has exploded in popularity and sometimes it seems we’ve pushed the Agile Manifesto aside to focus our attention inwards instead of focusing on what matters: Building awesome products that customers and users love.

The Power of DataOps for Cloud and Digital Transformation Wednesday, October 25 2017 - 11:00AM MDT Companies have been trying to speed up their innovation delivery for many years but often at the cost of higher quality and stronger security. Despite billions invested to accelerate innovation, projects are too often slowed by data friction - the result of growing volumes of silo’d data and multiple requests for data. Overcoming these sources of friction requires constant iteration across several key dimensions: • Reducing the total cost of data by making it fast and efficient to deliver data, regardless of source or consumer. Automation and tooling is critical. • Integrating security and governance into a seamless data delivery process. This requires integrated masking, but also a governance platform and process to ensure the right rules and access controls are in place. • Breaking down silos between people and organizations. This starts with the organizational change to bring people together into one team, but requires technology change to provide self-service data access and control.

Did you know that these reports and queries can be written against both BSO and ASO cubes? MDX can seem daunting, but with a basic understanding of syntax and functions, MDX is not that difficult. Join us for our webinar and learn what you need to get started writing MDX reports and queries that can supplement your reporting and add a new tool to your reporting tool set. Presented by Jennifer Hanks at Kscope 17 and awarded best presentation of the BI & Reporting Track, Jennifer will share: • Best practices for building formulas, including examples to visualize the appropriate approach • A comparison of MDX to BSO formulas and the conversion of BSO to ASO, specifically instances where very distinct differences can occur, and how to make the process run smoothly • How to use MDX editor to write queries and reports against both BSO and ASO cubes The goal of this webinar is to help attendees brainstorm new formulas their leadership might find useful, particularly when reviewing how other companies have built and leverage MDX on a daily basis for trend analysis, salary projections, turnover analysis, forecasting, and budgeting purposes using KPIs, and more.
