Expert Panel: Modern Data Pipelines

Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics

Date: Tuesday, August 30, 2022

Time: 12:00 p.m. PT, 3:00 p.m. ET

At TDWI, we see data management and analytics continue to evolve as organizations seek to become more agile, gain deeper insights, and take action on increasing amounts of data. Modern data and analytics require scalability, flexibility, and the ability to handle diverse data types. Organizations are often utilizing modern data pipeline tools to move data to new environments (such as the cloud), keep that data fresh, and make it available for analytics.

The modern pipeline is a series of processes that retrieve data from batch and streaming sources and prepare it for delivery to data consumers such as data scientists, analysts, and machine-driven processes. These pipelines may include data ingestion, movement, cleansing, loading, replication, transformation, preparation, and enrichment services. Beyond this, they may help in deploying machine learning models into production. They often use the computational power of the cloud to perform their functions.

Join TDWI Research VP Fern Halper as she hosts an expert panel with leading vendors to discuss modern data pipelines. Topics will include:

  • Trends requiring modern data pipelines
  • Key components and capabilities of modern data pipelines
  • How automation and augmentation is used in modern pipelines
  • Using modern pipelines for advanced analytics
  • Best practices for getting started
