Palo Alto, CA, October 10, 2018 - Denodo, the leader in data virtualization, announces its 3rd annual user conference, Denodo DataFest, which will be held in New York City on November 1st and 2nd. Today, companies are rapidly adopting cloud, self-service BI, and big data technologies such as data lakes, to gain greater agility and scalability while enhancing analytic capabilities. However, achieving these goals is not always straightforward. In this conference, attendees will learn strategies on how to leverage data virtualization to enable highly flexible, agile, and powerful BI architectures that are facilitating the journey to advanced data management and analytics.
“Denodo’s 2018 Datafest User Conference is great for any enterprise wishing to transform complex data across on-premises and cloud environments into actionable insights using agile strategies,” said Claudia Imhoff, Founder, BBBT and keynote speaker at this year’s event.
An immersive, day-and-a-half-long conference, Denodo DataFest brings together some of the brightest minds in data to share expertise and insights on the future of data management and analytics. This event offers an end-to-end learning experience, starting from foundational concepts and demos and continuing through hands-on labs and boot camps, where business leaders, data professionals, and business analysts will learn about the latest technologies, trends, and tools that are changing the data landscape.
“Data and data-driven insight have taken center stage as Crawford & Company® continues its market leadership. Modern data virtualization and data governance tools and practices have been the secret to better self-service BI for Crawford®’s end users, resulting in faster time-to-market for our products and services.” said Andrew Sohn, SVP, Global Digital and Analytics Services at Crawford & Company. “I look forward to sharing Crawford’s Data Virtualization journey at Denodo Datafest, one of the most prominent agile data management and analytics conferences.”
Sessions will feature actionable insight from analysts and some of the top minds in enterprise data architecture, including speakers from Forrester, BBBT, Eckerson Group, Tableau, Looker, Wipro and Simplicity BI. Attendees will also hear real world insights from McCormick, GE Capital, Guardian Life, and Crawford & Company who will share how they leveraged data virtualization to enable enhanced analytics and agility.
“Big data has given rise to data lakes and many other use cases, but companies still need ways to unify the data in real time, or they end up with additional data silos,” said Ravi Shankar, chief marketing officer at Denodo. “The same is true for companies leveraging cloud or implementing self-service BI. DataFest 2018 focuses squarely on how to achieve a smooth journey to cloud, self-service BI, and data lakes, using data virtualization. We are excited to bring together our customers, partners, and Denodo executives to talk about how data virtualization can bring out the maximum benefits from today and tomorrow’s technologies.”
Highlights of the event include the following:
- Independent analyst Claudia Imhoff will share her perspective on how companies are transforming and innovating with multi-cloud and hybrid architectures.
- Forrester analyst Noel Yuhanna will discuss why data virtualization matters and will share findings from Data Virtualization and Big Data Fabric Waves recently published by Forrester.
