Keynote - Data Management Powered by a Logical Data Fabric, David Kerner, Denodo
According to a recent Forrester survey, while 85% of organizations want to improve their use of data insights in their decision making, 91% of the respondents report that they are not able to improve upon their data-driven decision making. The problem - organizations often turn to the data lakes, data lake houses, cloud data warehouses etc. as their monolithic data repository, for all of their data and analytics needs. But the hard reality is that data is and will be spread across multiple repositories that extend across cloud and regional boundaries. Join us to gain key insights on why a logical data fabric powered by data virtualization is critical for any organization's data and analytics.

Canadian Privacy Compliance Made Easy with Data Virtualization, Francois Gaudreau, KPMG
With the recent passing of Quebec's Law 25 and the current provisions of PIPEDA, There are now two Acts Canadian businesses need to adhere. Both will have a huge impact on how businesses that serve the Canadian and Quebec markets collect, use and transfer data, forcing them to provide specific reasons and need for the personal data they gather and to prove their compliance with the principles established by the regulations. Non-compliance of these regulations can have severe financial impact on businesses. Your most prudent strategy is to start preparing now. But how? This session will address how data virtualization is a straightforward solution to many of the challenges and questions associated with this new Canadian Privacy Acts.

Accelerate Cloud Modernization using Data Virtualization, Bhavita Jaiswal, Denodo
Many companies have been modernizing their data infrastructure from legacy on-premises to modern cloud systems. But such a transition has not been easy - many companies had to re-architect their IT landscape to fit the new technology model, disrupting business. Data virtualization provides a layer of abstraction for the IT to transform their systems, while enabling the business users to continue their operations without disruption. In this session, we discuss how some of Denodo’s largest customers have successfully modernized their IT infrastructure using data virtualization as the data abstraction layer.
