Creating a Next-Generation Big Data Architecture

Thursday, December 04, 2014 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT

If you’ve spent time investigating Big Data, you quickly realize that the issues surrounding Big Data are often complex to analyze and solve. The sheer volume, velocity and variety changes the way we think about data – including how enterprises approach data architecture. 

Significant reduction in costs for processing, managing, and storing data, combined with the need for business agility and analytics, requires CIOs and enterprise architects to rethink their enterprise data architecture and develop a next-generation approach to solve the complexities of Big Data.

Creating the data architecture while integrating Big Data into the heart of the enterprise data architecture is a challenge. This webinar will help you understand:

  • Why Big Data capabilities must be strategically integrated into an enterprise’s data architecture
  • How a next-generation architecture can be conceptualized
  • The key components to a robust next generation architecture
  • How to incrementally transition to a next generation data architecture
  • Fortify Your Enterprise with IBM Smarter Counter-Fraud Solutions

    Tuesday, December 09, 2014 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT

    Organizations lose an estimated five percent of annual revenues to fraud, totaling nearly $1 trillion in the U.S. alone. Cyber criminals are more organized and better equipped than ever, and continue to evolve their strategies in order to undermine even the strongest protections.

    We continue to hear about major security breaches across all industries, but what is being done to fix the problem? There must be a tight interlock between risk, security, fraud and financial crimes management. Current solutions are proving inadequate as point solutions and a corporate silo mentality directly contribute to the risk of fraudulent activities going undetected. 

    Join us for a webinar to:

  • Learn how IBM’s Smarter Counter Fraud initiative can help public and private organizations prevent, identify and investigate fraudulent activities
  • Hear real-world use cases including how one financial institution stopped $1M in fraud in the first week after implementing a counter-fraud solution
  • Perficient’s multi-tiered approach to help guide successful business outcomes
  • It’s time to stop the bad guys with IBM Smarter Counter Fraud and Perficient – join us to learn how!

    Planning and Preparing for Windows Server 2003 End-of-Life

    Tuesday, December 09, 2014 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

    Windows Server 2003 reaches “end-of-life” in mid-2015, and Microsoft will no longer provide patches or security updates for the operating system. Given the rate at which new security threats are introduced, it is extremely dangerous to run production services on a platform that has reached end of support.

    If you are still running Windows Server 2003, you aren’t alone. For organizations considering a migration, now is the time to start a thorough analysis of each Windows Server 2003 system, including the native and third-party software workloads.

    Join experts from Perficient, AppZero and Cisco to discuss the options and paths available when moving off Windows Server 2003, including:

  • Virtualization Hyper-V on Cisco UCS
  • Transitioning to a cloud model – private, public and hybrid
  • What AppZero can do for your migrations
  • Capabilities and benefits of Windows Server 2012

  • The most important thing is to get started now! Without proper analysis and migration planning, IT departments will find themselves lacking the time to move mission-critical applications to a supported operating system.

  • Implementing Digital Signatures in a FDA-Regulated Environment

    Thursday, December 11, 2014 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT

    Perficient’s life sciences practice once had a manual, time-consuming and expensive process for signing and collecting validation documents. From handwritten signatures to scanning and shipping documents all over the globe, it was only a matter of time before we made the move to 21 CFR Part 11-compliant digital signatures.  

    Please join Michelle Engler, an expert in the development of clinical applications, to learn about our experience implementing a digital signature solution and how your organization can benefit from one too.  

    During the presentation, we will cover:

    • Cost-benefit analysis
    • Solution selection and implementation
    • 21 CFR Part 11 system validation
    • Lessons learned
