Computer Science Colloquium: February 7

On Friday, February 7,  the Computer Science Department will host its first colloquium of the Spring 2020 semester.  Jesse Cerutti of Pfizer will give a technical talk on data management skills in pharmaceutical industry entitled “Enterprise Data Lakes: The backbone of next-gen analytics”.  An abstract of his talk can be found below.

Please join CS faculty and students in Forcina Hall 408 from 12:30 – 1:30 PM for this talk.
Refreshments will be provided.

Abstract:
Successfully executing on a data lake strategy at an enterprise level requires multiple teams with varying technical skillsets. The architecture of the solution can quite literally make or break the success of the project. In this talk I will discuss the background of our Pfizer manufacturing application landscape and why a data lake is critical to future success. I will also get into the details of the architecture, application design challenges and considerations as well as technologies required in the implementation of the project. Finally, when completed successfully I will discuss how this enables next-gen analytics for our manufacturing sites and the wider organization.
