Unlock business value through Data Fabric

In today’s rapidly changing digital marketplace, companies formed within the last two decades hold an inherent advantage over companies with legacy IT systems. This is because these digital natives are built on a digital core that relies on distributed technologies, which give them the ability to capture, track and analyze customer interactions in real-time. As a result, these companies get smarter with each transaction, increasing their efficiency and lowering costs so they can respond even faster to emerging trends and threats as they go to market. In this way, data fabric plays a pivotal role in helping organizations achieve resiliency and sustainable growth. Data fabric represents a paradigm shift in how companies leverage their data. By accessing data through one common platform, the data fabric solution provides a single view of data that was previously housed in separate data lakes and warehouses. With the creation of a semantic layer, companies can apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) and other analysis tools to understand new trends and revamp go-to-market strategies in days instead of weeks. EY’s data fabric unlocks value for organizations. Companies engaged in an IT transformation can often reduce at one-seventh the cost per transaction, enabling the implementation of a plan to progressively decommission the legacy systems. The data fabric solution also helps companies without a digital core to launch new ventures that turn them into digital natives at the outset, setting up operations that are significantly more efficient.

Data Insights using AI and ML for Business Benefit

Businesses are flooded with a large volume of data that is growing with each passing second. This data could be structured or unstructured; it could have different formats such as numeric, text, image, speech, sensor data etc.; and it could be live streamed or gathered otherwise. The important question is how to best utilize the data for the benefit of business and its customers. This talk would focus on utilizing analytics, AI/ML, and cloud technologies for exploring hidden insights in large volumes of data. These insights could be utilized for real-time, or as required, data-driven decisions by deploying end-to-end business solutions. This talk would cover deployment architecture of AI/ML systems and 360-degree view of industry across market segments.

Next Generation Data Lake

"A data lake is a very fundamental solution component in the digital transformation roadmap for most companies. But, ability to get data ready and available for generating insights in a governed manner is still one of the most complex, costly and time-consuming process. While data lakes have been in practice for many years now, newer tools and technologies are evolving and a new set of capabilities are added to data lakes to make them more cost effective and improve their adoption. This presentation is to cover some of the interesting trends that we see in the industry- * Self-service based Data Ingestion/Processing & Delivery, Analytics Workbench for business teams that are fully configurable * Automated Data Classification & PII Discovery * Low/No Code approach for data modernization & migration programs * Reduce time to market with virtual Lakehouse technologies * Next generation Data Observability solution * Platform Observability to monitor data platforms in centralized manner & respond."

Intelligence and Unified Data Governance in the multi-cloud age

In today’s multi-cloud world, it is imperative for organizations to adapt to an increasingly data-driven world and adopt analytic agility. But given the varied sources of information that organizations handle and complex data handling mechanisms, including data movement, data discovery, cleansing and preparing trusted data for Analytics, and at the same managing data security, this becomes a challenge. This challenge is magnified two-fold when you are unsure of where your data is coming from and what it means. Kirthi shares insights and key learnings and best practices around intelligent management of metadata, security and governance in a diverse and largely distributed data environment. As an additional bonus she would also cover Google Cloud’s point of view and solutions to address this problem area.

Analytics 3.0 - The world of data enriched offerings

Back in 2013 Harvard Business Review published an article about Analytics 3.0. The article was authored by Thomas Davenport and in this article he talked about how the world of Data & Analytics has evolved from the era of Business Intelligence to the era of big data and then finally to the era of data-enriched offerings. When you think about this evolution what is clear to us is to get into the world of Analytics 3.0 we needed foundational blocks to make things happen. Those foundational blocks are Business Intelligence (BI), Artificial Intelligence (AI), data platforms and finally the cloud. In this tech talk we explore this evolution and what organizations and practitioners need to do to be prepared to ride the wave over the next decade.

Building Enhanced Customer Micro Segments to drive engagement by building customer 360

This workshop will cover and demonstrate the best practices around setting up a data lake to create a Customer 360 view. The workshop will cover data relevant for the financial services industry. While dealing with various sources of data we will walk through the common stages for data lifecycle in a data lake such as data ingestion, sensitive data detection & redaction, data transformation, data analytics, performing machine learning on this data (structured/unstructured) and driving/enabling actions from these insights. We will focus on building enhanced customer microsegments to understand the activity of our customers and recommend products that they might be interested in. By building these micro segments we are delivering recommendations that are very personalized.
