It is evident that data is central to our society and our organizations. Increasingly, organizations want to do more with data. They want to use data more widely, more efficiently and more effectively to speed up and improve business and decision-making processes. Data must be used for many forms of data consumption, including simple reports, self-service dashboards, customer-driven BI, data science, streaming analytics, and embedded BI. This has raised the bar for IT systems. The good news is that technologies and techniques exist to make the wildest data dreams come true.
This edition of the DW&BI Summit focuses on those new developments and new forms of data consumption. Topical and practical topics are discussed, such as: Which technology should be used for streaming analytics and for the development of embedded BI in customer-facing applications? Because many organizations are migrating to cloud platforms, answers will be given to questions such as: Are the design guidelines for cloud databases changing and what are the recent challenges organizations encounter when they migrate?
But it is not only technology, data architectures are also widely discussed. What are the requirements we set for sustainable data architectures? What exactly does a data mesh entail and what is the relationship with a well-developed data strategy?
Some topics that will be covered these days:
The DW&BI Summit offers practical guidelines, tools and do’s and don’ts to support current and upcoming issues. You will meet well-known speakers and thought leaders from the Netherlands and abroad and representatives of large international organizations such as NN, Randstad and Shell.
