At DFW Data Science, we strive to be a catalyst for a Data Driven culture for Enterprises in DFW Area. We commit to learn and help others learn how to deliver solutions with a data-first approach.
Our topics range from core Data Science concepts to applying these concepts at Enterprise scale for various industry verticals. So, whether you are looking to get into the Data Science field, or want to keep in touch with the latest developments in the rapidly evolving pace, this meetup is right for you.
Our goal is to meet once a month, come rain or shine. For now, it is the first Monday of the month. Regardless if the event is actually stated on the calendar.
With our Enterprise outreach program, we have taken our meetup crowd into companies local to DFW including USAA, Capital One, Toyota Connected. If you are an enterprise and want to host the event, please feel free to reach out to us.
In this discussion we’ll review how multi-cloud works and some practical ‘gotchas’ that most Cloud providers never talk about.
The ability to manage data across multiple clouds and then integrate that data, no matter how it is persisted, into a data fabric.
We’ll also cover issues that surround management and governance of this process."
