Session 1: A Knowledge Graph Driven Recommender Engine

According to various studies, employees in knowledge-intensive industries spend >20% of their time searching for the right information. The right information might be the relevant document you are looking for, the right person to talk to, the right piece of equipment to use, etc. So relevance is key and ideally, you would want to describe what you are looking for and get back what best meets your expectations.

It is quite clear that no traditional search system can meet these expectations. But a recommender system built on a knowledge graph can do the trick. When you connect your business objects to the knowledge graph, each of those objects is given a semantic footprint. This footprint can be generated automatically, regardless of the type of object. It can be used in many cases to describe a document, a person, a device in more detail. It can be used to recommend similar objects or objects of a different type instead.

In my talk, I will show how such a system is built and works in a real-world example.

Session 2: Building a Trusted Data Foundation in Azure with MDM

Taking the right architectural approach to data governance and master data management (MDM) in Azure can build a strong foundation for trusted data throughout the enterprise.

Today, organizations are rapidly migrating their data and applications to cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure as part of initiatives like digital transformation, building a business intelligence function or driving operational efficiencies. But as data is combined and data volumes grow, so does the need to govern and manage it across several systems to ensure it is of high quality and trusted for business use. Fortunately, the integration of Azure Purview and Profisee MDM is designed to do just that.

Join us as we discuss the complementary roles of Azure Purview and Profisee MDM. See how they have been integrated to share metadata, inform master data model design and ultimately build a foundation of data governance and master data management to maximize the business value of data in Azure.

Session 3: : Data Virtualization and Data Integration Update — Building a Modern Enterprise Data Architecture with AI and Active Metadata

Gartner projects by 2022, 60% of all organizations will implement data virtualization as one key delivery style in their data integration architecture.  Denodo again is a Leader in the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools and named the Best Data Virtualization Solution in DBTA’s 2021 Readers’ Choice Awards. 

In Gartner’s 2020 research paper: Demystifying the Data Fabric, Gartner discusses that the core of the data fabric is able to consolidate many diverse data sources in an efficient manner by allowing trusted data to be delivered from all relevant data sources to all relevant data consumers through one common layer.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • How to connect to a data fabric
  • How active metadata is used to feed an AI-based recommendation engine

Session 5: The Future of First-Party, Cookieless Identity Resolution for a Cohesive Omni-channel Customer Experience

Organizations that cannot recognize and match individuals across disparate data sources and multiple channels are losing opportunities to deliver and measure revenue-increasing experiences across marketing, CRM, media, and service channels. This problem is exacerbated on web properties where customers may browse your site, but you have no way of knowing who they are to connect them to relevant experiences or provide relevant offers.

Merkury, Merkle’s identity resolution solution, enables the growth of first-party identity and data for organizations and provides an easy-to-use interface for resolving offline and online identity to a single person-based master ID. With features including a privacy-safe data clean room for person-based audience segmentation with modeling and analytics, the power of identity is in your hands. It is the only enterprise identity platform that brings together the accuracy and sustainability of client first-party data, quality PII-based, third-party data, and the most cookieless media and technology platform connections in the market. Merkury also allows organizations to grow their own transparent Private Identity Graph. 

In this session, we will demonstrate how brands can recognize unauthenticated site visitors and leverage this information to identify buying signals to retarget these individuals and deliver an exceptional customer experience. Our guest speaker, Amy Nelson from Big Lots, will provide insight into how this solution will impact her organization as well as on the retail industry at large.
