Expert Panel: The Unified Platform for Analytics
Webinar Speaker: Fern Halper, TDWI VP Research, Senior Research Director for Advanced Analytics
Date: Tuesday, September 28, 2021
Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
As organizations evaluate more advanced analytics (such as machine learning and natural language processing) that use complex data types and techniques, standalone products and the traditional data warehouse are not meeting their needs. The unified platform for analytics provides an integrated set of tools that address many aspects of the data and analytics life cycle. These platforms may offer data warehouses, data lakes, governance, machine learning, model deployment, and other analytics and data services.
The market is still early for this unified platform although TDWI research indicates that organizations overwhelmingly agree that unification is an opportunity. The benefits of unification include capturing and leveraging emerging and diverse data, achieving faster time to insights, better performance and scalability, and support for advanced analytics. The challenges include vendor lock-in and the politics of ownership.
Join TDWI Research VP Fern Halper as she hosts an expert panel with leading vendors on the unified platform for modern analytics.
Topics will include:
- The value of the unified platform for analytics
- Key components of the platform
- How organizations are using a unified platform for analytics
- Challenges organizations are facing and how to overcome them
- Best practices for getting started
