Keynote Presentation: New Strategies to Cross the Generational Divide in Energy
Unlock the Power of Generations to Grow Your Business
In this keynote, best-selling author Jason Dorsey exposes new generational truths that directly affect the success or failure of leaders and organizations. He shares surprising data, emerging trends and specific actions that lead to measurable results. You’ll leave with new insight and strategies for making your company’s generational mix a competitive advantage that delivers bottom-line results.
Business is experiencing exponential growth in data volumes, sources and systems. We’re all confident in measuring and managing the business by the numbers; unfortunately, we’ve simply got too many numbers, too much information and too much confusion. Managing exploding information assets has caused many companies to re-evaluate their approach and challenge their traditional paradigms.
In this session, Levy will offer a view of what leading companies are doing to better manage and deliver access to their corporate information assets. The presentation will discuss the paradigm shift in their strategy, the organizational changes to the business/IT relationship, and the tactics they used to deliver success.
Evan Levy, Vice President of Business Consulting, SAS
Thought leaders will share lessons learned on bridging gaps – including gaps in analytical talent, generations, and people and technology. Find out what’s being done to develop tomorrow’s data scientists and encourage new graduates to enter the energy industry.
Confirmed panelists include:
Current solutions, such as Security Incident Event Management (SIEM), are unable to detect complex threats – such as the recent OpenSSL bug and large-retailer data breaches – due to reliance on static rules and rules-based signatures. In this session we’ll explore how the use of big data and high-performance analytics with network transactions and security events can lead to faster and smarter correlation of security incidents.
You’ll learn how the next generation of cybersecurity technology can help automate cumbersome manual processes. And you’ll find out how real-time event stream processing enables threats to be rapidly prioritized for corrective action in a fraction of the time taken with manual search, exploration and forensic analysis techniques.
