12:00 - 12:45 : PureData for Analytics: The Next Generation of Power and Simplicity

The time has come for a new class of systems: systems with integrated expertise and built for cloud that combine the flexibility of general purpose system, the elasticity of cloud and the simplicity of an appliance. Expert integrated systems will fundamentally change both the experience and economics of IT. Expert integrated systems are more than a static stack of self-tuned components—a server here, some database software there, serving a fixed application at the top. Instead, these systems have three truly unique attributes. The first is built-in expertise. Think of expert integrated systems as representing the collective knowledge of thousands of deployments, established best practices, innovative thinking, IT industry leadership, and the distilled expertise of business partners and solution providers. Captured into the system in a deployable form from the base system infrastructure through the application. The second is that expert integrated systems are integrated by design. All the hardware and software components are deeply integrated and tuned in the lab and packaged in the factory into a single ready-to-go system that is optimised for the workloads it will be running. All of the integration is done for you, by experts. The third is that the entire experience is much simpler – from the moment you start designing what you need to the time you purchase – to setting up the system – to operating, maintaining and upgrading it over time. Management of the entire system of physical and virtual resources is integrated. And all this is done in an open manner enabling participation by a broad ecosystem of partners to bring their industry optimised solutions to bear

12:45 - 13:30 : Lunch Break

13:30 - 14:15 : Big Data – Predictive Analytics

Learn about the new Big Data feature in IBM SPSS Modeler and how to automate and integrate this capability into your application. You don't have to worry about MapReduce programming to take advantage of predictive analytics on Big Data.

14:15 - 15:00 : Agility in a Relational Database world with noSQL & DB2

Today's mobile, social and analytic applications demand agility, speed and scalability using a flexible data model. This partly explains the huge interest in NoSQL databases. Modern applications frequently need to add, drop, or modify fields in the data store without administrator involvement. Change management processes associated with relational databases can be an impediment to continuous integration processes. A popular NoSQL approach is the use of a "document database", where documents are stored with a flexible format, such as JSON. Many existing NoSQL solutions offer these advantages, but sacrifice "ACID" characteristics of a traditional database, such as transaction control, recoverability and other aspects taken for granted in DB2. Using DB2 as a JSON document store provides the best of both worlds. This session describes a solution that does exactly that. The session also includes a live demo showing the power and flexibility of this JSON over DB2 solution.

15:00 - 15:45 : Test Data Management in the era of lightning fast computing

17:30 - 18:15 : Best practices for protecting Enterprise Information in BigData & Datawarehouse using InfoSphere Optim & Guardium

Security and privacy is no longer an option, it is a requirement of doing business. Databases contain an organiaation's most valuable assets: they are where customer data, financial records and other sensitive information are stored. They have become a primary target of attacks by hackers and insiders with malicious intent. Investigations over the past several years show that 75 - 92 percent of compromised records originated in database servers. While your primary database may hold the vast majority of your data, there may also be sensitive data held in other databases across multiple platforms. Learn how clients have used IBM InfoSphere Guardium & IBM InfoSphere Optim to help reduce threats, prevent breaches and streamline compliance activities to reduce operational costs.
