Time: 12:00 p.m. PT / 3:00 p.m. ET
Success in the modern economy depends on an enterprise’s ability to deliver high-quality data and analytics into production applications. In order to keep pace with fast-changing business requirements, enterprises need to address key technical challenges such as eliminating data and analytics silos, moving data engineering and machine learning assets to modern cloud infrastructures, and ensuring that the enabling cloud platforms can scale elastically to support mission-critical workloads.
Enterprises everywhere are migrating their data analytics assets to cloud-based platforms and pipelines that offer greater scalability, performance, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness. Typically accessed on a fully managed, pay-as-you-go basis, modern cloud data platforms can support both structured and unstructured data assets. In addition to supporting conventional ETL-based data integration, modern cloud data infrastructure can also provide real-time and low-latency analytics, automated data onboarding and integration, orchestrated data pipelines, data engineering and preparation, self-service data delivery, embedded analytical models, and other sophisticated features.
Join TDWI senior research director James Kobielus and invited guests Kiran Guduguntla from Amazon Web Services and Jonathan Steinert from Accenture in a fireside chat where they discuss:
- What are the principal steps in an enterprise migration of data and analytics to the cloud?
- What role can a high-performance cloud computing environment play in advancing enterprise data modernization and digital transformation?
