Real-Time Trade Surveillance is Not Just About Trade Data

Paul Lashmet

Practice Lead
& Advisor for Financial Services
Arcadia Data

Tuesday, 22 May | 9:05 AM
Location: Capital Suite 4

To find instances of illegal trade practices you must think beyond traditional data sources.

Consider the vast amounts of data analyzed, the variety of sources, the high frequency of trades, the complexity of cross-border transactions, and the overlapping layers of client relationships. All of these elements need to be connected and correlated to identify both the trading activities and the intent of the traders.

Paul Lashmet explains how alternative data sources enhance trade surveillance by providing a deeper understanding of the intent of trade activities.

Join this speaking session to learn how to kickstart your use of alternative data as a compliance asset through practical examples that have been employed by your peers in the industry.


A Tale of Two BI Standards: Data Warehouses and Data Lakes

Randy Lea

Chief Revenue Officer
Arcadia Data

Wednesday, 23 May | 2:05 PM
Location: Capital Suite 2/3

Data lakes as part of the logical data warehouse (LDW) have entered the trough of disillusionment. Some failures are due to lack of value from businesses focusing on the big “data” challenges and not the big “analytics” opportunity. Data is just data until you analyze it.

While the data management aspect has been fairly well understood over the years, the success of business intelligence (BI) and analytics on data lakes lags behind. In fact, data lakes often fail because they are only accessible by highly-skilled data scientists and not by business users. But BI tools have been able to access data warehouses for years, so what gives?

In this talk, we’ll discuss:

  • Why existing BI tools are architected well for data warehouses, but not data lakes.
  • The pros and cons of each architecture.
  • Why every organization should have two BI standards: one for data warehouses and one for data lakes.

Executive Briefing: BI on Big Data

Shant Hovsepian

CTO & Co-Founder
Arcadia Data

Wednesday, 23 May | 4:35 PM

Location: Capital Suite 17

If your goal is to provide data to an analyst rather than a data scientist, what’s the best way to deliver analytics? There are 70+ BI tools in the market and a dozen or more SQL- or OLAP-on-Hadoop open source projects.

A panel of experts details the trade-offs between a number of architectures that provide self-service access to data, and industry researcher Mark Madsen discusses the pros and cons of architectures, deployment strategies, and customer examples of BI on big data.

Topics include:

    • Traditional BI platforms based on semantic layers and SQL/MDX generation
    • Server and desktop BI tools based on direct mapping of data
    • Distributed BI platforms (e.g., MPP and data native)
    • OLAP- and SQL-on-Hadoop engines
