Why: As organizations accelerate their cloud adoption initiatives, they embrace a variety of deployment models, such as hybrid-cloud, private cloud, public cloud, and multi-cloud, each with its own repositories, applications, and connectivity choices, which makes the cloud a complex environment.

Denodo is thrilled to offer a virtual event platform for data enthusiasts to get together, discuss some of the most pressing data management problems, and take home some cloud data management best practices.
