Denodo Premiers DataFest User Conference for Accelerating Analytics, Cloud and Big Data Initiatives

Palo Alto, CA, October 6th, 2016

WHO: Denodo, the leader in data virtualization software, will host its annual user conference on October 18, 2016 / 8am to 6pm PDT at the Hyatt Regency in Burlingame, California.

WHAT: The Denodo DataFest User Conference is a one-day technology gathering intended to assemble business leaders and technical experts in one location to share approaches to employing rapid, agile data strategies for accelerating analytics, cloud, and big data projects.  For further information about the conference, please visit www.denododatafest.com.

Denodo customers will present their success stories in leveraging the Denodo Platform to support initiatives such as cloud modernization, self-service analytics, governance, Big Data and IoT initiatives. In addition, Denodo speakers and partners will present various solutions enabled by data virtualization, and also deep-dive technical sessions on product capabilities.

WHY: According to Gartner, “The biggest changes in the market from 2015 are the increased demand for data virtualization, the growing use of data integration tools to combine "data lakes" with existing integration solutions, and the overall expectation that data integration will become cloud- and on-premises-agnostic.” (August 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools). Organizations have long suffered from the limitations of traditional approaches to data integration that delay data availability to business users due to their technical complexity and necessity for specialized resources for operations. Businesses need technologies that enable enterprise-wide rapid data strategy through agile, holistic, and instantaneous data methodologies.

In this comprehensive event, attendees can choose from over 20 sessions ranging from customer case studies, data virtualization solutions, business value and technical deep-dives filled with presentations, panels, and demos.
Angel Vina, CEO of Denodo, will open the conference with his perspectives on “Propelling Data Into the New Age”, followed by the Grand Keynote “Building Modern Data Architectures at Enterprise Scale” presented by Josh Wise, Enterprise Architect at Intel.

Attendees will also hear customer case studies from Autodesk, Logitech, SeaCoast Bank, Digital Realty, BioStorage Technologies, Asurion, Fastaff, VSP Global, and Cymer about how they successfully leveraged data virtualization to boost business benefits.

Denodo DataFest Conference is supported by system integrator and technology partners such as Hortonworks, SimplicityBI, HCL, Mindtree, HP, Semarchy, LabAnswer, Kadenza, Alten, Metadata Technology, T2B, and Tabner.
Partners and customers alike acclaim the benefits to their businesses of the Denodo Platform.

We wanted a single vendor for information delivery so that our business users can interact more with the data on a self-service basis,” said Mark Blanchette, VP and Director Business Technology and Data Management at Seacoast. “Denodo’s data virtualization technology has helped us to reduce the time required to source data for reporting from two to three days for static reports to only two or three hours for interactive, self-service reports.”

As the pioneer and industry leader in Rapid Response® travel nurse staffing, we own a unique market position placing nurses in ten days or less,” said Allison Beer, CEO of Fastaff and U.S. Nursing. "Data virtualization adds automation to our process by matching well qualified nurses with hospitals to ensure uninterrupted patient care. As innovators in this space, we are committed to using cutting-edge technology in delivering quality patient care where it is urgently needed and, after careful evaluation, we selected the Denodo Platform because of its superior performance, capabilities and technology innovation.”

Denodo’s ability to rapidly deliver integrations across business systems, and then service those standardized views for internal applications and business users is significant,” said Paul Balas, VP, Business Intelligence, for Digital Realty. “Our business moves at the speed of our customers, so understanding both their behaviors and needs and then delivering world-class solutions is our goal. By leveraging Denodo’s technology we will have the agility needed to deliver on this mission.”

"We are excited to see big data virtualization capabilities like that of Denodo Platform 6.0, that extends physical data lakes to logical data lakes that enables a broader range of Hadoop use cases such as data warehouse offloading, IoT integration, and real-time insights," said Matt Morgan, SVP of Marketing at Hortonworks.

With Denodo Platform 6.0, business users are quickly unifying data silos to gain insights into the data for improved productivity and decision making,” said Mano Vajpey, Managing Partner, SimplicityBI. “We are bringing self-service and agile BI benefits to our joint customers, empowering them to exploit the full spectrum of information now at the tip of their fingers.”

"The Denodo Platform accelerates information self-service to business users with necessary governance," said Vineet Talwar, Global Strategic Alliances at HCL. "Our joint customers are reaping the benefits of speed and agility from Denodo’s award-winning data virtualization technology which positions them to attain more value, faster.”

Global organizations are successfully leveraging data virtualization to solve their critical business problems,” stated Indy Sawhney, General Manager & Client Partner, Mindtree. “Denodo’s ability to support multiple solutions such as Logical Data Warehouse, Single View and cloud modernization combined with Mindtree’s consulting expertise is improving our customers’ experience while meeting their demands, faster.”

The integration of the Denodo Platform 6.0 with HPE’s Vertica advanced analytics database offering will bring improved speed and scale to our mutual customers," said Chris Selland, VP Business Development, Big Data Platform at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. "Denodo's Dynamic Query Optimizer understands an array of critical characteristics of big data sources such as the number of processing units and partitions and provides essential connectivity to the HPE Vertica premise and cloud-based solution.”

Denodo and Semarchy share an agile, value-driven approach to meeting customer needs,” remarked Salah Kamel, CEO, Semarchy. “Our evolutionary MDM capability combined with Denodo’s real-time data virtualization capability will benefit our mutual customers to be more competitive in today’s economy.”
