Using Machine Learning to Manage User Access
Using Machine Learning to Manage User Access Jon Austin Osborne Watch Now
In any enterprise, one of the most prevalent security risks revolves around who has access to which resources. Whether data is being stored in a cloud solution or on-premises, there is a large challenge in knowing how to provide the correct privileges to associates. By using machine learning and clustering algorithms like the Louvain Method, we can group similar users our network and create two valuable features: (1) automated onboarding and (2) automated "rogue access" detection. With the utilization of machine learning, we have allowed our company to become a more well-managed company, and have reduced a major cybersecurity threat. This talk will be a deep dive into the model, data engineering and productionization of the web application interface.
How We Built a Scalable, Real-time User Targeting System
How We Built a Scalable, Real-time User Targeting System Sriranjan Manjunath, CTO and Head of Engineering @ Saavn Watch Now
Saavn is India’s leading music streaming service. Since context is key to music, we have built a system called Sniper that lets us identify cohorts of users in real-time and target them for marketing, advertising and recommendation purposes. This system allows us to understand user behavior by quantifying their engagement characteristics such as stream consumption, affinities or ads. Speed and scalability are critical to its design. This talk will cover our motivations behind building such a system and how big data technologies have helped us architect it.

Data Governance, Discovery, & Lineage in a Heterogeneous Streaming Big Data Platform
Data Governance, Discovery, & Lineage in a Heterogeneous Streaming Big Data Platform Barbara Eckman, Principal Data Architect, Comcast Watch Now
Data governance, discovery and lineage help data scientists find and integrate data of interest to uncover otherwise hidden trends, anomalies, and powerful predictors of business successes and failures. Comcast’s Streaming Data Platform comprises a wide variety of ingest, transformation, and storage services. Peer-reviewed Apache Avro schemas support end-to-end data governance. Apache Atlas is our metadata repository for data discovery and lineage. We have extended Atlas with custom data and process types, eg.: avro schemas; AWS S3 buckets and prefixes; kafka topics; and kinesis streams. Custom asynchronous messaging libraries notify Atlas of new data and schema entities and lineage links as they are created.

Big Data Trends with Oracle Bare Metal Cloud
Big Data Trends with Oracle Bare Metal Cloud Andrew Reichman, Sr. Director of Cloud Strategy, Oracle Watch Now
Cloud has changed the game when it comes to data analytics. Previously, organizations had to lock themselves into a particular architecture and level of capacity for three to seven years and do all the lifting themselves. Cloud on the other hand allows them to experiment with different hardware and software options, get more of the solution as a service and scale up and down to meet project spikes and accelerate busy jobs at will. This makes it much more viable for any company to get the advantages of advanced analytics against large data sets, without an oversize IT staff or huge capital investments. Oracle cloud is specifically designed to help enterprises take advantage of cloud for data analytics—it offers massive non-variable performance, predictable low cost and broad choice of deployment and software options. Oracle and Qubole work together to deliver a new breed of data platform—capable of taming the scale, performance, cost and complexity issues associated with gaining business insight from data of all types.Watch this webinar to understand: - Summary of industry trends for big data on the cloud - How Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is optimized for big data workloads from a cost, performance and flexibility perspective - How Oracle Cloud Big Data solutions compare with on-premises and competing cloud options
