Leveraging Databases and Analytics for Transformative Data Insights

Webinar Speaker: James Kobielus, Senior Research Director, Data Management

Date: Thursday, October 26, 2023

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET

Modern businesses rely on transformative insights into front-end customer behavior as well as back-end business operations.

Nothing delivers these insights and associated business results faster and more efficiently than a modern database platform. One of the hallmarks of such a platform is its ability to support analytics and transactions with equal agility. Another is its ability to leverage machine learning, predictive models, and other advanced analytics to optimize every transaction, interaction, and business process.

Join this webinar in which James Kobielus, TDWI senior research director for data management, engages industry experts and thought leaders from Fivetran, Google Cloud, and Capgemini in a roundtable to discuss how modern businesses are using innovative database platforms to gain transformative and disruptive insights.
