Valerie Logan: Unstructured Big Data - Scalable Solutions in Human Understandable Data

Valerie Logan is VP, Information Management and Analytics Solutions for Hewlett-Packard.

The transition from structured data, monitoring, and data warehousing to big data - tremendous volumes of unstructured data arriving continuously from multiple sources, such as the supply chain, environmental monitors, and transactions results in challenges in maintaining relevance to business objectives. Information is the new currency of business. The data itself is provided by consumers and end users, a goldmine of information in the aggregate.

The patterns and systemic view of how the information is matched up with externally available information is a primary task that companies face. HP brings answers to how to build a Big Data strategy, and then assist customers with the implementation details.

Valerie is responsible for the information and analytics theme of HP's global industry vertical solutions- focused on driving innovative, differentiated IP/product-based solutions. She is a Global practice leader of the information management practice within HP's Consulting & Integration services division, charged with facilitation of strategy setting, portfolio development, market position, delivery enablement and talent development across regions.

How do you ensure that your applications are running on the right infrastructure in your House of IT? Extend the psychology of Applities to the infrastructure.

1. How does the nature and type of an application impact the infrastructure it runs on?

2. Shouldn't the enterprise already have the right infrastructure in place for all their applities?

3. Can you use the concept of Applities to determine if Applications are ready to be deployed on the Cloud?

Nadhan is the co-chair for the Service Oriented Cloud Computing Infrastructure project within The Open Group's Cloud Computing Work Group.

George Ferguson: Business Continuity - Protecting Data vs Protecting Businesses

George Ferguson is Product Marketing Manager for HP Continuity Services. In this interview, George discusses Disaster Recovery as a cloud based service. The goal of an effective program is protecting business processes and applications, not just protecting data. The most frequent disasters are component failure, human errors and longer term data center electrical failures.

Enterprises must know where the data is - within region or within country. This sort of approach rules out the public cloud offerings. George also mentions some risky short-cuts using the test and development that might be tempting, but could be very expensive in the long run.

High agility and very low recovery time and very low costs are major advantages of the Cloud Based system.
