With over a billion risk points a day and data stored in multiple platforms for different asset classes, the challenge at Barclays was to get a daily consolidated view of their risk exposure, and also provide a way for analysts to interactively drill down to transaction level details to identify issues. Chuck Chakrabarti, Vice President at Barclays, will describe their move to a big data architecture, the challenges faced and lessons learned, and their evaluation of a solution using Kyvos, Tableau, and Cloudera. In this talk, he will cover how to operationalize big data in your organization, common pitfalls to watch out for, tools and methods that worked and didn’t work, and requirements for self-service analytics.
Visa offers dozens of products to financial institutions, merchants, and consumers that are powered by applications that run on "virtual machine" servers in Visa data centers. Managing the underlying hardware requires the ability to forecast future server needs well in advance, to ensure that equipment is in place when it is needed. Forecasting anything involving technology using only historical-based trends is fraught with peril, so a forecasting model that allows for user adjustments is important. This session will detail out a technical approach for building an interactive Tableau forecasting model that combines historical-based forecasting with user-controlled adjustments.
The approach involves:
- Creating "placeholder" data for the forecast
- Lots of table calculations to apply the forecasting logic
- Using parameters to make adjustments to the forecast
The advent of the digital world and the Internet of Things has opened a whole new playing field of vulnerabilities and complex fraud risks. While most organizations have remained focused on external threats, the insider threat posed by employees, contractors and third-parties with access to an organization's IT systems presents one of the foremost fraud and information security concerns. Many organizations have made great strides in combating external cybercrime and cybersecurity fraud risks, though tackling the threat from within requires a new way of thinking and visualizing data.
We will first explore the process of using visualization to identify an organization's digital "crown jewels" and effectively understand the insider threat. We will then turn our attention to effective strategies for managing this threat, often blending multiple data sources and tools in new ways using Tableau. We will explore tangible ways in which our investigators and clients are leveraging Tableau to effectively prevent, detect and control these risk areas for organizations of different sizes and risk profiles. Through our session, we will deconstruct several real-world examples and highlight best practices and pointers.
Prior to Tableau there was no good system for sharing data between Cross Country Home Services (CCHS) and our clients. Even data insights were limited to static PowerPoint presentations.
After Tableau, CCHS used Tableau Online to share visualizations and data and Tableau Online Sync Client for database updates. Together these systems allowed for fluid, interactive, and updated communication between CCHS and their clients.
Come to this session to learn more about the client-vendor relationship in order to bring more efficient data management and strategic discussions to your organization. Attendees will also see how the unique Tableau Online environment enabled CCHS to create dynamic dashboards which would not of been possible on Tableau Server - dashboards that our clients love.
Learn how KPMG is providing better and faster analytics to its healthcare clients by utilizing Datawatch’s self-service data preparation solution. Better insights come from using data that you never thought possible-–data from PDFs, web pages, JSON, BI reports. Faster comes from pre-processing the data in a very natural, intuitive way to remove the 80% of time analysts spend preparing data. KPMG is able to access, combine, prep and clean their client’s financial data and push directly into Tableau for faster analysis and insight.
