DataKinetics’ will be presenting at CMG – Ohio:

Going All the Way with Analytics, or Just Going Through the Motions?

There are a lot of companies out there putting enterprise data from their production systems into Splunk for some serious analytics and machine leaning, and more are getting on the band wagon every day. But what’s really being accomplished? Just getting data into Splunk and pressing “Go” isn’t anywhere near enough. If you don’t really understand your own data, you’re not likely to obtain valuable business intelligence out of it. For example, machine learning can result in intelligent anomaly detection, but how do you know that an anomaly wasn’t caused by an intentional event? To get real value from your data, it must first be intelligently matched with business data. This presentation will talk about the superset of data that you really need before you even get started. Also covered will be discussion of toolset components that you’ll need to get out of the starting gate with a reasonable expectation of success.

Cleaning Up the Batch Window

Any large IT shop running mainframe systems has challenges in the batch window. As workloads grow, so grows the pressure to complete that batch processing on time. It can be a race against time that you sometimes lose, risking SLA non-compliance, and worse. The IBM Red Book on Batch Modernization is the starting point, and advice from long-time experts in the field can help smooth things in the batch window.


  • Review challenges for today’s batch window processing
  • Review some of the typical mainstream solutions
  • Review some advice from experts in the field.
