Co-located with the Executive Summit for Data Management
May 9-10, 2022

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 Executive 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.

Who Should Attend

  • Business and IT leaders working to build a data-driven organization
  • Program leadership and architects who establish data strategy, build BI and analytics programs, and define technical and data architecture standards
  • Business analysts who turn data into knowledge and insight
  • Data scientists and developers leveraging machine learning and AI for predictive analytics
  • Data architects, data modelers, and database designers who manage structured and unstructured assets
  • BI, dashboard, and reporting architects and developers who produce information products consumed across the enterprise
  • Data integration architects and developers who employ ETL, ELT, and streaming techniques to build enterprise data pipelines
  • Data stewards, custodians, and stakeholders who are challenged by the expanding scope of data and the growing complexity of regulations governing data privacy, security, and use
