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.

Data Mesh or Data Fabric: Uniting Data across your Organization - Fraser Hogg and Kris Dahl, BDO Lixar
Technical skill can vary wildly across an organization. Some domain experts require full life cycle support; others may have existing processes they are hesitant to change. Adopting technologies with specific processes or skill levels in mind can add an extra layer of difficulty to data projects. Here we’ll show you our tested approaches that serve business units of all skill levels.

Data Catalog: Bridging the Gap between IT and Business, Bhavita Jaiswal, Denodo
Self service is a major goal of modern data strategists. Denodo’s data catalog is a key piece in Denodo’s portfolio to bridge the gap between the technical data infrastructure and business users. It provides a true ‘data marketplace’ for business users, i.e an enterprise-wide directory of datasets available for consumption. It provides discovery capabilities for business users, enabling them to explore both data and metadata in a single Web front-end tool. In this session, we explore Denodo’s data catalog capabilities, including documentation, search, governance and collaboration capabilities, and data exploration wizards. It’s the perfect companion for a virtual layer to fully empower those self service initiatives with minimal IT intervention. It provides business users with the tool to generate their own insights with proper security, governance and guardrails.

From Data to Decision: Turning Measurements Into Actions - An O&G Case Study: Ken Melax, BDO Lixar
A five year journey with Denodo, weaving a data fabric, has delivered solutions and benefits which compound in ways never imagined at the start of the process. Technical challenges are rapidly addressed. Integrated business data is shared across departments and locations, amplifying business professionals' actions. The Energy Fabric (powered by Denodo) is changing the culture of the company. Cross functional efforts to root out data deficiencies and expand the data collected has led to improvements in the management of inactive assets, salvage costs, ARO liabilities, tax and royalty payments and more. One manager put it succinctly, "Denodo data has become the backbone of decision making in the company." Join us for a look at weaving an Energy Fabric; connecting field measurements to action throughout the company; achieving continuous improvements along the way.

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.
