Denodo Data Days Melbourne

Rethinking data management - serving the business their data

 10 Oct 2023 - Melbourne Museum, Australia

  8:00am - 1:00pm (AEDT)

In thriving and dynamic times, the management and delivery of data to the business remains a fundamental and critical capability. 

While boards are recognising and investing in data as a strategic asset, questions remain about the value being delivered to the business and in what timeframes.  

To help answer this important priority and to "rethink" aspects of data management, Denodo is delighted to host ADAPT's Head of Data & Analytics, Gabby Fredkin, who will share locally based insights on 'Why a Data Fabric enables and sustains business value?' at the Denodo Data Days Melbourne event. This agenda includes a Denodo Customer Use Case presentation by RMIT University's Data Platforms Team Lead, Sirisha Mantha, where RMIT will share their expertise and offer insights into how they have enabled the business with their data fabric. On the day, there will be presentations and live demos from Denodo experts, including a panel discussion featuring representatives from ADAPT, RMIT, and Denodo. A networking lunch will follow the sessions.

Secure your spot now to explore topics such as the value of implementing a logical data fabric, unifying a business data layer, harnessing AI in a data catalog to bring together IT and business, data governance and security, and reducing risk in cloud data modernisation.



8:00AM - 8:55AM
Registration & Networking
8:55AM - 9:00AM
Welcome - Denodo Regional Director (VIC & SA) - Daniel Hatfield
9:00AM - 9:20AM
Why are data transformation programs still falling short on business value? - Denodo RVP & General Manager, ANZ - Benjamin Henshall
Many organisations often attempt to centralise their data by migrating it to a single cloud, seeking simplification and cost savings. Yet, many find the business value underwhelming or 'over the horizon’. Especially in large organisations with data generated across numerous distributed systems, solving such data transformation challenges sustainably remain uncertain. In this session, we will discuss how a logical abstraction to data management can pragmatically drive the right results for business.
9:20AM - 9:50AM
Why a Data Fabric enables and sustains business value? - ADAPT Analyst and Director of Research - Matt Boon
The data explosion fueled by many factors is forcing organisations to re-think data management and data usage strategies where a central Cloud provider is a key part. In this session, we will discuss how a Data Fabric through a logical abstraction is addressing the three fundamental problems of unifying distributed data together, surfacing that data for the business to use, and hiding complexity from the business on changes to where datasets are moved to the Cloud.
9:50AM - 10:15AM
Data Fabric for the real world: A Single Business Data Delivery Layer - Denodo Product Management Director, APAC - Felix Liao
In this session, we will build upon the prior talk expanding on the differences between the current and emerging data management architectures of the Warehouse, Lake, Lakehouse and Cloud and specifically how a unified business domain data delivery layer unlocks much greater value, irrespective of where your organisation may be in their data management journey.
10:15AM - 10:35AM
Networking Break
10:35AM - 11:00AM
Denodo Customer Use Case Presentation - RMIT University Data Platforms Team Lead, Sirisha Mantha
11:00AM - 11:20AM
Demonstration: What Makes Denodo's Data Catalog Crucial for Your Self-Service Initiative, with the help of AI - Denodo Product Management Director, APAC - Felix Liao
Denodo's Data Catalog uniquely combines cataloging capabilities such as search, documentation and lineage with execution capabilities provided by the virtual layer. This session will focus on how The Denodo Platform along with the integrated Data Catalog is the best way to help you realise and implement your self-service data management initiatives.
11:20AM - 11:40AM
Demonstration: A Universal Business & Security Data Layer using Denodo Data Virtualization - Denodo Sales Engineer - Poorvi Singh
In this platform demonstration, the data virtualization technology will be showcased to show how data can be easily integrated, managed and delivered in a consistent & secure manner through a common logical semantic layer. This approach accelerates data delivery while ensuring data security and governance irrespective of how many data sources exist. The demonstration will cover PII and Attribute Based Controls.
11:40AM - 12:10PM
Panel: Accelerating Cloud Data Modernisation : Who's benefiting - the business, IT or both? - Moderator: Benjamin Henshall, Adapt's Gabby Fredkin, RMIT's Sirisha Mantha, Atturra's David Griffith and Denodo's Praneet Thakur
Organisations are adopting cloud at a fast pace, migrating applications and data to leverage specialised services and dynamic scalability and flexibility offered by the cloud. Many soon realise that it is often more complex than what they initially anticipated. In this session we will discuss the challenges, pitfalls and ways to accelerate cloud migration efforts.
12:10PM - 1:00PM
Lunch & Demonstration: FinOps - Denodo Product Management Director, APAC - Felix Liao
We will demonstrate how Denodo’s universal data access layer, utilises the active metadata to surface data usage and compute across all systems including your cloud systems and presents unified statistics and costs to help identify where and how data management costs can be optimised.
