Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics

As organizations strive to be more competitive, they often need real-time insights; no one wants to make decisions based on stale data. TDWI research indicates that real-time data collection is already in the mainstream. Some use cases include inventory management, fulfillment, supply chain, and logistics in which retailers must be able to assess product availability and consumer demand in real time. Forward-looking organizations also want to enrich real-time data with other data types to provide even better analytics.
Part of this move to become more real-time involves both infrastructure and analytics platforms. At TDWI, we see many organizations already moving to the cloud to deal with real-time, high-volume data. In a recent survey, for instance, more respondents were utilizing a cloud data lake than one on premises. Organizations are also starting to use newer platforms such as cloud data lakehouses to manage their data. In addition to the move to cloud for data management, organizations are also looking for analytics solutions that can keep up with the intensity of the data they are collecting, while at the same time being useful to multiple lines of business (LOBs) throughout the organization.
Join Fern Halper, TDWI’s VP of Research, in a panel discussion with Databricks and Sigma Computing about how to build the road map for real-time data and analytics. Topics will include:
- How to get started with real-time data
- The state of real-time data and some use cases in the retail industry
- Architectural and analytics considerations for getting the most out of real-time data for fast business decision-making
