- Splunk Enterprise for IT Troubleshooting
If you’re just getting started with Splunk, this session will help you understand how to use Splunk software to turn your silos of data into insights that are actionable. In this session, we’ll dive right into a Splunk environment and show you how to use the simple Splunk search interface to quickly find the needle-in-the-haystack or multiple needles in multiple haystacks. We’ll demonstrate how to perform rapid ad-hoc searches to conduct routine investigations across your entire IT infrastructure in one place, whether physical, virtual or in the cloud. We’ll show you how to then convert these searches into real time alerts and dashboards, so you can proactively monitor for problems before they impact your end user. We’ll demonstrate how you can use Splunk to connect the dots across heterogeneous systems in your environment for cross-tier, cross-silo visibility. You’ll have access to a demo environment. So, don’t forget to bring your laptop and follow along for a hands-on experience.
- Best Practices for Scoping Infections and Disrupting Breaches
Infection and exploits will occur. The new goal is to prevent those infections from becoming a data breach. To do this successfully, security analysts need the ability to continuously collect, analyze, correlate and investigate a diverse set of data. Our security expert will discuss the specific data sources and capabilities required to determine the scope of an infection before it turns into a breach. You will also see a live incident investigation that demonstrates this approach.
- 2:30pm – Breakout Sessions 4-6
- Improving Healthcare Operations Using Process Data Mining
It’s estimated that 80% of healthcare data is unstructured, which makes it challenging to do any sort of analytics to drive improvements in population health, patient care and operational efficiency. Machine learning techniques can be utilized to predict future events from similar past events, anticipate resource capacity issues and proactively identify bottlenecks and patient outcome risks. This session will provide an overview of how process data mining can be applied to healthcare and provide real-world examples of process data mining in action..
