Hi Folks, here is the another piece of information that I would like to share with you all…

Hi Sudheer,

As the velocity of business increases, business users expect to be able to interact with information and create their own views of data. At the same time, BI teams would like to offload report and analytics creation duties to users and focus on more value-added activities. Fortunately, there is a new crop of self-service BI tools that promises to empower users while liberating the BI team from ad hoc reporting tasks.

On July 12, join Claudia Imhoff and Colin White for a Webinar that will cover the results of the recently published TDWI research report they authored on self-service BI. This report covers the tools, techniques, and technologies that leading-edge BI teams are deploying to users to improve their ability to create ad hoc reports and analytics and service their own information needs.

One-size-fits-all approach in BI on cloud is bound to fail. So how can we make sure that we tailor the solutions to meet each customer’s individual BI needs, and in doing so, how do we leverage on the experiences, and the best practices gained from our on-premise BI implementations. How do we build flexible and scalable BI solutions, and yet make them secure on cloud. To understand these aspects better let’s look at – the IP led approach for developing BI solutions on cloud and follow it up with a demo

  Abstract
As massive data acquisition and storage becomes increasingly affordable, a wide variety of enterprises are employing statisticians to engage in sophisticated data analysis. In this talk we highlight the emerging practice of Magnetic, Agile, Deep (MAD) data analysis as a radical departure from traditional Enterprise Data Warehouses and Business Intelligence. We present design philosophy, techniques and experience in the field providing MAD analytics for businesses and researchers confronted with ever-expanding data sets.

We describe design methodologies that support the agile working style of analysts in these settings. We present data-parallel algorithms for statistical techniques, with a focus on density methods. Finally, we reflect on system features that enable agile design and flexible algorithm development, with lessons for both SQL and MapReduce programming styles.

5:30 – 5:45 pm Q & A Session
