Where company leaders learn how to prepare for what’s ahead in data management

As more organizations embrace modern approaches to information management, they are empowered to transform data into business value which becomes the basis of innovative and strategic data-driven business practices. Achieving these worthy goals demands that organizations effectively acquire, curate, manage, govern, analyze, and exploit all forms of digital assets. These assets include structured data, unstructured text, and IoT data streams, as well as images, graphics, and video.

The conventional approaches to on-premises data warehousing are still necessary, but are increasingly insufficient to meet the diversifying analytics and data management needs of the modern digital enterprise.

The Strategy Summit for Data Management brings together case studies, innovative practices, future visions, and interactive group sessions that teach attendees strategies for successfully incorporating mature and emerging practices, methodologies, and technologies into a modern data environment for warehousing, business intelligence, analytics, governance, and operations.

Why the Strategy Summit is Different:

  • Strategy Guide

    Walk away with everything you need to reference for data management in one place! Chicago Strategy Summit attendees will receive a full industry guide filled with new research, trends in data management, and a technology landscape so you can navigate through solution options. This will be your go-to guide for tips, tools, and action plans to help transform your organization after the event.

  • Industry and Vendor Landscapes
