Presentation: Tackling Data Gravity with Hybrid Solutions,
Jen Underwood, Founder of Impact Analytix, LLC.


As more data shifts to cloud while data volume and variety continues to grow, many organizations are considering hybrid data storage, integration and business intelligence offerings. By leveraging a combination of software as a service (SaaS) solutions, data virtualization, marketplaces, cloud and on-premises data sources along with existing on-premises data warehouses and business intelligence assets, analytics leaders can deliver the most value from data. Hybrid solutions can solve time to value and data migration pains but those benefits come with new security and data gravity challenges. Please join me in this session to explore hybrid business intelligence today.
