Webinar on The Art of Data Possible

Online event

We're holding our 2nd Webinar! Matt Becker will be hosting a session on The "Art of the Data Possible" Data management technologies are a dime a dozen and are improving at an ever-increasing rate. How does one determine how to transform data technologies such as cloud storage, data streaming, no-SQL technology, ML, and AI into an effective (and cost-saving) data management solution for companies? This presentation will provide an objective set of examples of a variety of open-source and various vendor solutions to help educate data management professionals on ways to incorporate various data transformation solutions to provide data insights rapidly, repeatably, and efficiently. Learn the “art of the possible” to leverage effective data transformation processes and technologies along with seamlessly integrated public, private, structured, and unstructured data sources. With modern data transformation best practices, see how companies can rapidly provide a data platform to better manage Data analysis, Data Replication, Data Management, BI Tool Connectivity, Support, Scalability, Data Stream, and Cluster Monitoring, and Disaster Recovery/Failover.
