Donald Farmer returns after four years as keynote speaker at the Data Warehousing & Business Intelligence Summit. At this ninth edition of the DW & BI Summit Donald Farmer will speak about the issues of governance, compliance and data privacy. This year’s DW & BI Summit takes place on March 29th and 30th at the Van der Valk Hotel Utrecht and can be followed remotely via a live video stream.
Donald Farmer, principal of TreeHive Strategy, is an internationally-known advisor to analytics vendors, investors and enterprises. His background is very diverse, having applied data analysis techniques in scenarios ranging from fish farming to archaeology. He worked in award-winning start-ups in the UK and Iceland and spent 15 years at Microsoft and at Qlik leading teams designing and developing new enterprise capabilities in data integration, data mining, self-service analytics, and visualization.
In his session ‘Openness and ownership – the balancing act of enterprise data’ on Wednesday March 30th he will address that governance, compliance and data privacy increasingly seem to conflict with matters like time-to-market, agility and openness. In this session Donald Farmer offers some approaches to this growing challenge. On Thursday March 31st Donald will present the practical post-conference workshop ‘Data and Analytics as a Line of Business’.
This ninth edition of the DW & BI Summit will offer a two-day extensive programme with keynotes from speakers within the Business Intelligence field like Barry Devlin, John O’Brien, Donald Farmer, Lawrence Corr, Keith McCormick, Alec Sharp, Jan Henderyckx, Gabriella Obispa, Marco Brattinga, Tanja Ubert and Rick van der Lans.
