Analyst Keynote: Delivering Analytics at The Speed of Transactions with Data Fabric

It is no more an argument that data is the most critical asset for any business to succeed. While 85% of organizations want to improve their use of data insights in their decision making, according to a Forrester Survey, 91% of the respondents report that improving the use of data insights in decision making is challenging. To make data driven decision, organizations often turn to the data lakes, data lakehouses, cloud data warehouse etc. as their single source data repository. But the hard reality is that data is and will be spread across various repositories across cloud and regional boundaries. Learn from renowned Forrester analyst and VP at Forrester, Noel Yuhanna: - Why Data Fabric Is the best way to unify distributed data - How Data Fabric be leveraged for data discovery, predictive analytics, data science and more - Why data virtualization technology is key in building an Enterprise Data Fabric

Partner Keynote: Amazon Web Services (AWS): Best Practices for Cloud Migrations with Zero Disruption and Downtime

Moving enterprise data to the Cloud, whether entirely or partially, is a priority for almost all organizations. The journey to the Cloud can be smooth and indeed will be accelerated when conforming to a clear and well-considered set of best practices that we have laid out. The advantage of following migration best practices are that downtimes and disruptions are virtually eliminated or, in the worst case, significantly minimized. Downtimes and disruptions cause significant damage in the form of lower customer responsiveness as well as expensive resource outlays. In this session by Vaishali Ghiya, Head of Marketplace, Networking, Security, Data & Analytics, AI & ML, Storage at AWS, we will discuss what these best practices exactly are. We will also focus on how cloud migrations can be made seamless by the presence of a logical data fabric to securely connect all systems across on-premises and the cloud while giving business users easy access to all underlying data. You will learn how AWS and Denodo come together to help enterprises migrate their diverse workloads to the cloud without disruption or downtime.

Denodo Keynote: How Guided Data Discovery Leads Users to Better Data Insights

The road to better data insights is not only dependent on data accessibility, but is even more reliant on the guided approach for data discovery. The data landscape is vast and has become even harder to navigate. Ability to access your data is no longer sufficient, we need systems to guide us to the right data, and more importantly to enable us to ask better questions. We are reliant on the guiding principles in our daily lives, when we shop online, watch movies, and much more. The same concepts apply to our enterprise data. Join our session to learn how Denodo can provide the guidance and guardrails for the better data insights.

Security at the Foundation of Data Democratization

Data democratization is at the center stage of modern data initiatives, and a key element of self-service and data marketplace implementations. At the same time, transition to cloud and hosted environments from an on-prem culture are the norm. They are also the perfect scenario for exposing confidential or sensitive information to criminal elements. Recent regulations, like GDPR, HIPPA and many others, have put an emphasis on secure data handling. However, implementations at the enterprise level are far from easy. Fortunately, it has also been the focus of many data management vendors, including Denodo. For this session, we have assembled a group of industry leaders to review how the industry has adapted to address these issues, how to implement secure practices effectively, and to review future needs and trends.
