  • Cracking the data challenge - how successful companies make Big Data operational (11-11:50 a.m.)

According to surveys, only 13% of organizations have achieved successful full-scale production for their Big Data implementations. Often, scattered data, ineffective coordination and lack of Big Data skills are highlighted as significant challenges. In this session, our expert panel including Intuit, Bank of New Zealand, BJC Health System and HPE Professional Services will discuss and share their experiences and best practices for operationalizing Big Data projects. Session ID: PNL10737

Thursday, Sept. 1

  • Human augmented learning for every segment of your business (9–9:50 a.m.)

Applied machine learning has the ability to accelerate development of new apps and services, and is the key to modernizing and transforming your IT, R&D and business operations. From being tuned into customer satisfaction to understanding drivers for won and lost deals—and even rapidly analyzing data sets to report trends and find anomalies—HPE Haven OnDemand provides more than 60 machine learning APIs to power apps and use cases that augment human intelligence to give you a competitive advantage. In this talk, we’ll explore innovative use cases for speech, video, audio, text analytics, prediction, search and more. Session ID: B10513

  • Optimizing customer experience in the telecom and financial services industries (9–9:50 a.m.)

As organizations seek tighter customer connections, customer experience management (CEM) platforms leverage data for actionable intelligence.

In the financial services industry, CEM leads to better understanding of consumer spending, enabling greater monetization through targeted promotions and personalized incentives. In this panel discussion, Tom Magg, VP of Business Development, Spirent Communications; Ted Ansusinha, VP Product Development, FICO; and John Murdough, VP Software Engineering, CA Technologies will share best practices for customer experience management in the telco and financial services markets. Session ID: PNL10723
