Cast a Net Over your Data Lake
YOW! Data 2017
As the variety of data continues to expand, the need for different kinds of analytics is increasing – big data is no longer just about the volume, but also about its increasing diversity. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to analytics – no magic pill that will get your organization the insight it needs from data. Graph analytics offers a toolset to visualize your diverse data and to build more accurate predictive models by uncovering non-obvious inter-connections among your data sources.
In this talk we will discuss some use cases for graph analytics and walk through a particular scenario to find power-users for a promotion campaign. We will also cover machine learning approaches which can assist you in constructing graphs from diverse data sources.
