There is a huge shortage of business intelligence and data warehouse specialists, the avalanche of new big data technology is relentless, the amount of data to be processed is increasing and the number of users who need to analyse data is increasing as well. But there is more. Businesses require more transparency with regard to data deliveries due to new laws and regulations, and because data usage must be regulated more tightly.
At the same time, organizations want to use their data widely, effectively, and efficiently. Therefore, existing systems must be upgraded or replaced. New technologies and techniques must be deployed. Sharing experiences with others and learning from the successes and mistakes of others is indispensable and can sometimes contribute in turning a project into a successful project.
This conference offers practical guidelines and do’s and don’ts to help you with these current and impending issues. You will meet well-known speakers and thought leaders from the Netherlands and abroad, including including Wayne Eckerson, Keith McCormick, Dave Wells, Nigel Turner, Egge van der Poel, professor Peter Boncz, Piethein Strengholt, Tim Schulteis, Jeroen Vermunt, Antoine Stelma and Rick van der Lans. This first-class line-up of speakers are ready to share their knowledge and experience with you.
Some topics that will be discussed these days:
Post-conference workshops by Keith McCormick and Dave Wells
We also offer two highly participative post conference workshops. On March 30 and 31st we run the workshop Putting Machine Learning to Work. This is a practical workshop by Keith McCormick on supervised and unsupervised machine learning. In parallel Dave Wells will run the workshop Cloud Datawarehousing full of exercises to analyze the upside and downside of cloud migration, to make migration decisions, and to develop a migration plan.
Can you only attend one day? It is possible to attend only the first or only the second conference day and of course the full conference. The presentations by our speakers have been selected in such a way that they can stand on their own. This enables you to attend the second conference day even if you did not attend the first (or the other way around).
