Please join us for the Boston CIO Roundtable, taking place Wednesday, March 2, 2016, at Parexel, 8 Federal St.Billerica, MA USA 01821. Our host is Dorothy Hatzikonstantis, Vice President, Corporate Applications Development. 

 

Topic:

The topic of this meeting is Analytics.  We will have Paul Barth, CEO of Podium Data give a presentation.  An open discussion will follow, led by CIO Roundtable member Praveen Ramanathan and Jude DeMeis of Ayantek. 

 

 Session Synopsis:

“The Role of the Data Lake in Accelerating Analytics”

 

IT and analytic teams often struggle to access quality data in a timely and efficient manner, as data is often locked inside traditional data warehousing platforms.

 

Paul Barth, Ph.D at Podium Data, will share his experience in working with a leading pharmaceutical company to migrate their analytic data from a data warehouse appliance to a hosted Hadoop data lake.  

 

In production for the past year, the data lake gives a team of 60 marketing analysts and data scientists secure, self-serve access to an expanded data universe to over 50 terabytes of pharmaceutical, clinical, and real-world data. Analysts have secure, self-serve access to find and create analytical data sets, which are accessible through commercial BI and data mining products. Based on the success of the platform, this pharmaceutical company plans to replicate this capability globally.

 

This discussion will explore:

 

1. Enterprise Data Lake (EDL) deployment best practices and pitfalls

2. EDL investment, cost savings and ROI consideration

3. Enabling self-service data access and preparation for analysts with no Hadoop skills

4.Business impact of an enterprise data lake, including accelerating data preparation, lowering data storage costs, and ensuring data security and quality
