What is a TDWI Solution Summit?

Each TDWI Solution Summit focuses on one or more data-driven best practices or technologies. For example, this TDWI Solution Summit focuses on both analytics and big data, with a highlight on innovative uses of these. A TDWI Solution Summit accelerates users’ evaluation and decision processes so they can meet their organizations’ needs by choosing and implementing a solution as quickly as possible. The Summit achieves this by bringing together a highly qualified audience of IT executives with best-of-breed technology providers and industry thought leaders. The Summit will address the full life cycle of the technical solution it focuses on, from selling and justifying a solution that meets business needs to architecting and implementing a system that delivers real value.
