Partner Presentation: Accelerating the Data to Value Journey
Gavin Targonsky Wipro

Organizations today are data rich and insights poor. There is data everywhere. ERP systems, CRM systems, external data, data lakes and ponds. The real question to ask is “Are the users getting the insights they need when they need where they need to drive successful business outcomes”. Data Integration is a core pillar of the “Data to Value” journey. In this session you will hear how enterprises across industries are grappling with data, insights challenges and how organizations have adopted data virtualization to accelerate their "Data to Value" journeys.

  • Reduce effort to get from Data to Value
  • Faster time to Insights
  • Reduce overall cost of ownership

THEME 2 – Multi-Cloud, Hybrid and Edge

10:30 - 10:45

10:30 - 10:45
Analyst Presentation: Connect you Enterprise to Cloud, Hybrid and Edge
Mike Ferguson Intelligent Solutions

While organizations undertake initiatives to move to the cloud, and modernize core systems and solutions, many find out the hard way that before they are able to move their entire data layer to the cloud, for a considerable period of time they need to keep their data partially in the cloud and partially on-premises. That gives rise to additional complexity including data security and governance challenges, latency problems and data integration problems. Attend session to understand how:

  • To overcome the complexity and chaos in distributed and changing data environment
  • An information catalog supports understanding of what data is available as a service
  • To plan for effective distributed information governance

Customer Presentation: Deploying Denodo in the Cloud: The Backbone of a Robust BI Infrastructure
Gerhard Lennox 2U, Inc

The need for a properly structured data infrastructure has become a necessity within a BI infrastructure for data-driven decision making. Furthermore, data within any company flows from a wide variety of sources and the need for business stakeholders to access reliable, accurate data easily is of great importance. Attend this sessoin to hear how 2U have implemented Denodo in the Cloud (AWS) to assist in providing all possible data sets in a well structured manner so business users can make impactful data driven decisions from the data served up in the Reporting System.

  • How 2U use AWS across the infrastructure to power thier systems
  • The implementation and use of Denodo at 2U

Partner Presentation: How to Take Advantage of an Enterprise Data Warehouse in the Cloud

As organizations collect increasing amounts of diverse data, integrating that data for analytics becomes more difficult. Technology that scales poorly and fails to support semi-structured data fails to meet the ever-increasing demands of today’s enterprise. In short, companies everywhere can’t consolidate their data into a single location for analytics. In this session we’ll cover:

  • Bypassing the mandate of a single enterprise data warehouse
  • Modern data sharing to easily connect different data types located in multiple repositories for deeper analytics
  • How cloud data warehouses can scale both storage and compute, independently and elastically, to meet variable workloads

THEME 3 – Data Lake and Governance

11:45 - 12:00

11:45 - 12:00
Analyst Presentation: What Can a Multi-Purpose Data Lake Do Better than a Data Lake?
Rick van der Lans R20 / Consultancy

Data lakes are commonly centralised data repositories. Data needed by data scientists is physically copied to a data lake which serves as a one-storage environment. This way, data scientists can access all the data from only one entry point – a one-stop shop to get the right data. However, such an approach is not always feasible for all the data and limits it’s use to solely data scientists, making it a single-purpose system. So, what’s the solution?

A multi-purpose data lake allows a broader and deeper use of the data lake without minimising the potential value for data science and without making it an inflexible environment.

The session will focus on describing the following:

  • Disadvantages and limitations that are weakening or even killing the potential benefits of a data lake.
  • Why a multi-purpose data lake is essential in building a universal data delivery system.
  • How to build a logical multi-purpose data lake using data virtualization.
