@DAMAPDX "Real Time Databases" with Amit Vij
Standard Insurance Center Auditorium

Presented by Amit Vij (Standard Ins. Atrium) Kinetica, President & Co-founder

RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/rsvp-for-damapdx-real-time-databases-with-amit-vij-tickets-46502705845

Modern business is fluid.  Critical business events must be responded to when they occur.  Delays mean lost opportunities and sub-optimal outcomes.  Modern analytics must be as agile as the business itself.

The days of looking at your data in the rear-view mirror are coming to an end.  We are at the dawn of a new analytic revolution:  the real-time database.  

Millisecond latency is the new analytic performance standard.  A new class of GPU-accelerated databases enable this level of performance.  GPU-accelerated databases are over 100x more performant than even the “fastest” in-memory data stores. 

GPU-accelerated databases can provide extreme levels of scalability without negative performance impacts.  They are also easy to implement; thanks to their use of ANSI-standard SQL and hybrid visualization capabilities.  This makes them particularly attractive for some of the most demanding analytic tasks; like scoring of predictive models, and geospatial visualizations.

Join Amit Vij from Kinetica to learn how GPU-accelerated databases can enable real-time businesses.

@DAMAPDX Chapter Meeting May 2020: Data Prep Using Microsoft Dataflows
Zoom Conference

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/rsvp-for-damapdx-data-prep-using-microsoft-dataflows-with-dharmesh-godha-advaiya-tickets-103561051894

Presented by Dharmesh Godha, Advaiya

Abstract

Preparing and defining ETL for insights is a significant challenge for businesses today — as ingestion, cleansing, transformation, and enrichment are labor-intensive and time-consuming tasks which require deep technical skills.

With this in mind, Microsoft has recently introduced advanced data prep with dataflows for the Power Platform, a suite of self-service low-code/no-code features and capabilities for business analysts and citizen developers to easily process and unify their data and store it in Azure-based data-lake storage. With these new capabilities, Microsoft offers a solution for any business need — whether you want to prep your data with ease, using a familiar built-in Power Query experience, or leverage the full Azure stack for more advanced use-cases.

By attending this virtual event, hosted exclusively for DAMA Portland members, you will learn everything you need to know about dataflows and how to easily prep your data, leverage Common Data Services (CDS) improve time-to-value, eliminate data silos, and create one source of truth for your organizational insights.

@DAMAPDX Chapter Meeting September 2020: How VPNs Work- The Ins and Outs with Daniel Lenski, PhD, OpenConnect
Zoom Conference

RSVP at DAMAPDX.org for registration info for this online event.

Presented by Daniel Lenski, PhD

Virtual private network (VPN) software creates a connection between peers across a wide-area network (normally, the Internet!) and builds an encrypted tunnel that behaves like a direct connection to the same local, private network. VPNs have become a pervasive feature of modern workplaces, and even more indispensable in this era of COVID-19 and widespread remote work.

The most widely-deployed VPN client and server software in workplace environments — including Cisco AnyConnect, Juniper/Pulse Networks, PAN GlobalProtect, and others — is all proprietary and closed-source. These VPNs differ in idiosyncratic ways, ranging from authentication to security requirements imposed on the client computers. Combined with bugs, missing features, and often mystifyingly vague error reporting, they can be very difficult to use, especially for those who need to access multiple VPNs. Under the hood, however, they all work in extremely similar ways.

The speaker is one of the main developers of OpenConnect, an open-source VPN client which can connect to all of the aforementioned VPNs using a common interface (with several others in development). In this talk, he will explain in detail how modern client-server VPNs work, in terms of authentication, encrypted tunneling, Internet protocol routing, and client roaming. He will illustrate how the operation of a VPN can be reverse-engineered and reimplemented in OpenConnect, using an implementation of PAN GlobalProtect as an example. He’ll show some of the advantages of being able to connect to different VPNs in a consistent and automated way, which can be particularly indispensable for those who work as consultants or vendors to multiple companies using different VPNs. Finally, he’ll discuss some recent and ongoing developments in VPNs and other kinds of remote connectivity software

Speaker

Daniel Lenski received his PhD in semiconductor physics and has worked at Seagate, Intel, and Amazon Elemental, and he has been using Linux and open-source software since the ’90s. He started modifying and contributing to OpenConnect out of the necessity of interfacing with many different companies’ VPNs while at a semiconductor consulting startup (FPS, now part of Inficon) and has continued developing it as a side project.

Opening Remarks: 8:30 AM: DAMA PDX Board

Morning Session: 9AM – 11:30 AM: Eric Lyness and Victoria Da-Poian, NASA

Eric Lyness is the NASA software and operations lead at Goddard Space Flight Center for the Mars Organic Molecule Analyzer on the ExoMars 2020 rover and Victoria Da-Poian is an Aerospace Engineer. They will present their talk, Machine Learning to Find Life on Mars and Beyond.

In 2021 the European ExoMars rover will land on Mars with the Mars Organic Molecular Analyzer (MOMA) laboratory to analyze soil samples searching for past or present life. NASA is developing machine learning algorithms to help the scientists more quickly analyze the data when it arrives from Mars. In this talk, we will present the current work using MOMA mass spectrometer data acquired during ground testing. Using this data we are aiding the scientists by matching new spectra with the most similar spectra from past experiments. We will present the nuances of mass spectra, our limitations with respect to data, and our approach to the problem. We hope to elicit feedback from the attendees.
