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 Strategy 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.

Why the Strategy Summit is Different:

  • Strategy Guide

    Walk away with everything you need in one place. Strategy Summit attendees will receive a folio filled with market research, workshop materials, and a vendor solution landscape. This will be your go-to guide for tips, tools, and action plans for your data strategies.

  • Productive Time Out of the Office

    If you’re going to leave the office for a work trip, it better be productive. TDWI Chicago is the perfect event for teams to get hands-on training in full- and half-day courses, while executives collaborate together in the two-day Strategy Summit. Leaders can make the most of the trip with valuable data strategy and storytelling courses on Wednesday after the summit.

  • Industry and Vendor Landscapes

    The data management tool and platform market is a congested landscape of shiny products and services. TDWI analysts will provide you with the distilled version of the players you need to know about in the newest technologies including cloud-based data management and new platforms for databases and data warehousing. Quickly understand which tools make sense for your organization and what you need to consider when integrating new services.

  • Industry Best Practices

    Save time and money by learning what not to do as well as how successful organizations navigated obstacles for success. TDWI attendees find extreme value in learning directly from industry experts and analysts who have worked in the field, as well as validating initiatives by connecting with fellow leaders at the Summit.

  • Expert-led Workshop

    This interactive summit includes the opportunity to learn with a hands-on workshop geared for business leaders. Align strategy with company goals and build a framework that you can bring back to your organization.
