    Next Generation Archiving New Uses for Proven Storage Solutions

    Thursday, April 30, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Social media, mobile, Big Data, Cloud computing and litigation concerns are driving a new “keep everything, forever” data mentality.  This is creating new opportunities  for proven storage solutions including multi-tiered storage architectures for active archiving and cold storage environments. In these “at scale” data environments, storage efficiency is the uber metric for both sustainability and profitability. Employing the right combination of flash, spinning disk and highly economical tape storage in a single, integrated architecture is a key enabler for maximizing efficiency.  Discover how Oracle’s storage solutions for active archiving and peta-scale cold storage are pushing the limits of storage efficiency, utilization and cost of ownership.   We’ll also look at use cases in fast growing archiving markets such as media and entertainment, video surveillance and cloud service providers.

    Industrial IoT and Machine Learning - Making Wind Energy Cost Competitive

    Wednesday, May 13, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    The Fluitec Wind Tribo-Analytics system is a production application that utilizes multiple Big Data disciplines. This case study presents a real-world application of Big Data and IoT. The techniques and algorithms can be applied to many other industries.

    From Fluitec: "Wind turbines are expensive to operate. They are remote and distributed with highly varied environmental conditions and operational loads … they produce vast quantities of data … Fluitec Wind employs advanced data mining and predictive analytics to reduce the cost of operations and maintenance of wind turbines."

    Data wrangling is a major challenge. In addition to the high volume of machine-generated sensor data, Fluitec has to integrate complex operational and oil sample data that is dramatically different in frequency, timing, volume and structure.

    Data quality is crucial.  Predictive models are inherently sensitive to missing data and also to the transformations used to normalize and re-structure data.  Complex data pre-processing was necessary.

    In this webinar you will learn how Fluitec solved these real-world challenges -

    • Data wrangling on a Big Data scale

    • Predictive modeling and data mining of complex, heterogeneous data sources

    • Utilization of cloud resources (AWS)

    • Integrating Big Data tools such as Hadoop with MySQL and Java

    Featured Speaker: Bob Liekar, M&S Consulting

    IOUG IoT SIG Webcast: Affective Computing-Driven Campaign and CRM Systems

    Thursday, August 6, 2015 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Emotions drive consumer actions and purchase decisions. Yet, surveys, sentimental analysis, and other available consumer research tools are not able to quantify consumers’ emotions -- how they really feel about their brand engagement.Consumers experience brands by developing feelings for those brands and emotional connections to them, and talking about those brands with other people. The problem, however, is that real-time analytics for return on engagement is difficult to obtain, and yet understanding how and why people engage with your brand is the linchpin to achieving success. 

    How can wearables and the Internet of Things help brands quantify consumer perceptions of brands and drive purchase decisions?Join this webinar to find how The Art of Human Emotions answers this question for brands.

    In his presentation, Scott will touch specifically on the Neuroscience, affective computing, AI/ machine learning Affection Emotion Sensing Platform (ESP).

    Featured Speaker: Scott Amyx, CEO of Amyx+McKinsey
