Advanced Analytics for Asset Management with IBM

Thursday, August 06, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

Extreme volumes of machine data, such as process control logs, asset inspection records and part quality data are created each day. Companies must analyze patterns and interactions within this data to create a total view of their operational processes.
Join us for a discussion on how IBM is enabling companies to proactively address maintenance and asset management challenges with advanced analytics solutions:

  • Determine root causes of failure based on usage and wear characteristics
  • Analyze component and environmental data to reduce time to identify quality issues
  • Identify conditions to optimize maintenance and inventory management
  • Monitor, maintain and optimize assets for better supply chain availability

Our webinar will cover an introduction to predictive maintenance, analytics use cases for asset management, and IBM Maximo integration with analytics solutions.

Demystifying Cloud ERP Financials

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT
Even as businesses continue to adopt cloud solutions, lingering misinformation exists that can hinder further progress. Some of the biggest myths concern cloud-based solutions for enterprise resource planning and are causing many organizations to miss the opportunity to integrate the scalability and flexibility of cloud into their existing ERP tool for financial management.

Join Perficient as we separate fact from fiction to help you make an informed decision about cloud ERP financial solutions versus more established EBS offerings. Step by step, we’ll address concerns about configuration, reporting, and security affecting critical financial management operations, including procurement, strategic sourcing, and supplier management. In addition, we look at options for implementing a cloud or hybrid approach.

Leverage Customer Data to Deliver a Personalized Digital Experience

Thursday, August 20, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

Extreme volumes of consumer data such as interests, behavioral patterns, and purchases are created each day across a variety of applications and devices. Companies must analyze these patterns and interactions to create a total view of their customer that incorporates more than simple demographics. This complete picture of the customer enables companies to provide personalized consumer experiences, meet the increasing demands of the marketplace, and ultimately prevent customer attrition.

Creating a personalized customer experience involves intuitive integration of all available data sources, prescribing the proper action through analytics and automatically tailoring the action through high-speed complex event processing. Many refer to this process as creating a 360-degree view of the customer, and achieving it requires a unified and comprehensive information governance strategy. Architecture, process, and skill sets must be aligned to achieve the responsiveness and accuracy that is required to meet customer expectations.

Join us and learn:

  • How to address the demands of the “Me” generation
  • Pragmatic solutions and architecture approaches to the challenges of Big Data in motion and at rest
  • The role of Big Data, analytics, events processing, and information management in personalized consumer interactions
  • When, where, and how to process Big Data, and the issues surrounding the nebulous digital space

Google Search for Life Sciences Companies

Wednesday, August 26, 2015 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM CT

Do you spend hours each month searching for, and not always finding, the document or information you need to do your job? These are often not just ‘would-like-to-have’ files, but rather those that you actually need to complete your work. Other times they are the ones that would help you do your job faster and better, if only you could find them.

Many organizations have numerous content repositories including databases, document management systems, file shares, content management systems, intranets, public-facing websites, and of course, clinical and safety systems. What if there were a way to search all of those repositories at once, using a single search box, and quickly pinpoint the exact document or information that you need?

Leading life sciences companies, including Amgen and Genentech, use the Google Search Appliance to search across multiple content sources in order to improve business processes like compliance, research and development, marketing, and more. 

Join Google's Head of Search, Rob Cocks, and Perficient’s Google Practice Director, Chad Johnson, for a complimentary webinar in which they will discuss why and how life sciences companies can leverage the Google Search Appliance to save time, money, and eliminate frustration.

Topics will include:

  • Overview of the Google Search Appliance
  • Use cases for life sciences companies
  • Implementation process

How Northwestern Medicine is Leveraging Epic Cogito to Enable Value-Based Care

Thursday, August 27, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

Value-based care and payment reform are prompting hospitals and healthcare providers to more closely manage population health. Hospitals and health systems rely on technology and data to outline the characteristics of their population and identify high-risk patients in order to manage chronic diseases and deliver enhanced preventative care.
