This marks the 12th conference that TDWI has sponsored in Europe and the 9th conference in Munich. The new venue for the conference worked very well last year and we are excited to be back there again this year. Our BI community continues to grow in Germany and across Europe and TDWI to focus on delivering world class, best practice based, vendor neutral education.
Businesses today are looking beyond the status quo in BI and data warehousing to discover uncommon, real-time/agile insights from their data. Leading organizations want to apply predictive models and business rules so that they can make faster, smarter, and even automated decisions in or near real time. Big data sources include social media networks, online behavior, real-time data/event streams, spatial data, sensors, and more. New technologies are being applied to capitalize on the “velocity” of big data, including predictive analytics, in-database and in-memory analytics, high-performance computing, Hadoop, MapReduce, complex event processing (CEP), and more. This conference will focus on how organizations can derive powerful business advantages from mastering the velocity of big data.
Predictive analytics and data mining provide the information, and agile methods deliver with speed. Putting the two together – excelling at agile analytics – that’s where the challenge is found. This conference brings together all of the essential knowledge to become an agile analytics organization. You’ll learn how to bring together the right people, technologies, processes, and skills – both analytic and agile – to meet today’s accelerating business information demands.
This is going to be a very exciting conference and I look forward to seeing you there.
