OAKLAND, Calif. — February 6, 2017 — Franz Inc.’s CEO, Dr. Jans Aasman, will present at the Enterprise Data World Conferencein Atlanta, GA Tuesday, April 4th, 3:45 PM. The 21st annual Enterprise Data World (EDW) Conference is recognized as the most comprehensive educational conference on data management in the world.

Dr. Aasman’s talk: Developing an Advanced Analytics Capability on an Enterprise Data Lake

Enabling the Data Lake for scalable and extensible analytics with the ultimate goal of developing a learning system is rapidly taking shape for the Enterprise. Until recently big data was focused on processing massive amounts of simple, flat data. But now, there is a requirement to fuse complex data to create more intelligent analytic frameworks to achieve better business decisions. Adding advanced analytics to a Data Lake to create a scalable knowledge-based analytics platform for pattern recognition, classification, predictive modeling, and simulations is rapidly developing with use cases in Fraud Detection, Healthcare, E-commerce, Intelligence, and more.

During the presentation we will describe analytic capabilities as part of an intelligent Data Lake approach that includes several Artificial Intelligence techniques as well COTS software tools for analytics and visualization. We will also describe the commercial applicability to several domains along with demonstrations.
