TDWI Chicago Update

At TDWI, we have been working hard to navigate this ever-changing landscape in the face of COVID-19, and we want to assure you that the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and vendor partners is our top priority. Therefore, due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the guidelines laid out by the CDC and WHO, we have decided to merge this year’s TDWI Chicago Conference (May 10-15) with TDWI Orlando 2020 (November 8-13), where it can be a successful experience for everyone. The Chicago 2020 agenda will be replicated at TDWI Orlando 2020.

Our registration team will be in contact with individual registrants and sponsors directly.

Data, reports, analytics everywhere—and no way to find them!
I hear this from many organizations suffering from an “embarrassing” wealth of analytics products. Unfortunately, because these products are all over the place and often hidden from business users and analytics implementers, the products get re-invented over and over. This dysfunctional situation causes wasted efforts, time, money, and confusion to say nothing of the redundancy in data and analytics.

Although certainly not a silver bullet, a sophisticated data catalog can mitigate this chaos. Business community members can quickly find the data and analytics they need. Implementers can identify existing products as quickly and eliminate much of the redundancy. Both groups can easily identify existing redundant data and analytics and begin to clean up their environments.
