Are you ready to learn about cloud-based analytic database solutions? Want to be able to make an educated analysis if your company should be using cloud databases more than your on-premises solutions?

Join us at this action-packed event to learn about the various options available for using an analytic database in the cloud, and if you should manage your own instance or let the vendor manage it for you as a service.

The current trend in database-as-a-service is leaning towards remaining hands-off under the covers, without ever learning or understanding how the database actually works. In this session you will learn through demonstration how to interact with a database in the cloud as well as with its various applications, including loading and visualization of this data through client applications.
