Data: The key to brand loyalty via seamlessly personalised customer experience

Thursday 24th June 2021

14:00-15:00 BST

SPEAKERS:Neill Brookman, Treasure Data | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN

Wherever you look, the consumer market is highly competitive: customers are strongly influenced by their experience with a brand, and as such their expectations of a seamless, personalised buying journey are higher than ever. On every step in the customer journey, companies collect data, but what stories do those data tell about their behaviour, experience and trust? How much value can you add to a buying experience through data? Are you able to predict, or even anticipate your customers’ needs? Can you use data to inspire loyalty in your customers?

In this webinar, Neill Brookman will discuss from a technical perspective how businesses can use all their data sources to :

-Build a unique, 360° view of each customer
-Cultivate trust and continued brand loyalty through real-time personalisation
-Optimise conversion and reduce churn by understanding and anticipating customer needs
-Add value to both brand and customer in every interaction

Dealing with Data Sovereignty at Scale

Thursday 04th March 2021

10:30-11:30 BST

SPEAKERS:Budha Bhattacharya, Tyk | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN

Data sovereignty, the concept that data is subject to certain laws, usually specific to geographies, is becoming more of a challenge for businesses as they scale across regions. However, compliance considerations apply not only to data at rest but also in transit. With consumer awareness growing, failure to meet compliance requirements can lead to huge negative implications to the finance and reputation of your businesses.

Join us for a panel discussion:
- What are some of the challenges businesses are facing with regards to data sovereignty?
- How do you set up and manage your data as you scale across regions?
- What tools and techniques can help businesses handle such an expansion while staying compliant?

SPEAKERS:Dave Lipowitz, Matillion | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN

Modern businesses seeking a competitive advantage must harness their data to gain better business insights. When it comes to loading, transforming, and analysing data, the cloud changes everything. ELT is a fundamentally different approach to pre-processing data, in terms not only of architecture but philosophy as well. Today, as much data, from as many sources as possible, needs to be integrated into analyses. ELT leverages the power of the cloud and the data warehouse platform itself, to do data transformation at scale. Learn how moving from traditional ETL to cloud ELT can help you keep up with exploding data volumes, reduce coding and resource management efforts and help you become more data-driven.

Eating the Elephant: A Business ROI-Driven Approach to Migrating to Cloud

Thursday 06th August 2020

14:00-15:00 BST

SPEAKERS:Steve Crosson Smith, SDG Group | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN

Most commentators agree that migrating legacy data infrastructure, such as data warehousing, integration and transformation, into modern cloud-based architectures will significantly benefit both business and IT stakeholders. Many projects, however, fail to secure funding because their time to value is too long or uncertain.

This session outlines a business-centric approach to migrating to cloud-based data architectures which delivers stakeholder value 3 to 6 times faster than most alternatives, whilst significantly increasing the ability to make self-service, data-driven decisions and expand into areas such as advanced analytics. The approach itself is not tied to a specific technology stack but we will outline technologies that make this easier to achieve.
The result is happy, enabled business stakeholders who regard IT as a business enabler, not a bottleneck.

SPEAKERS:Yoann Lechevallier, Lightstep | Andy Steed, Big Data LDN

Easy-to-understand monoliths are giving way to distributed systems: microservices, serverless, meshes, and proxies in every possible combination. These systems offer developers the freedom to build new features and technology faster, as they are no longer beholden to the elaborate release processes associated with monolithic architecture.

But, like all good things, there is a price: distributed systems are inherently difficult to operate and maintain. When something breaks—which it invariably will—how can you quickly comb through the myriad dependencies? How can you separate good hypotheses from bad ones?

Learn how observability helps developers understand multi-layered architectures: what’s slow, what’s broken, and what needs to be done to improve performance.
