Wayne Eckerson presents two keynotes during DW&BI Summit 2020

Wayne Eckerson will present two keynotes during the Data Warehousing & Business Intelligence Summit on March 25th and 26th 2020: ‘Making Self-Service Analytics Work: Organizational, Architectural, and Governance Issues’; and on the second day ‘Best Practices in DataOps: Trends, Tips, and Techniques for Creating and Managing Modern Data Pipelines’.

Wayne Eckerson is founder and principal consultant at Eckerson Group, a full-service consulting firm that provides thought leadership and education to help organizations get more value from data and analytics. Wayne Eckerson is an internationally recognized thought leader in business intelligence and analytics who thinks critically, writes clearly, and presents persuasively about complex topics. He is a best-selling author, sought-after consultant, and noted speaker. Wayne was one of the speakers at the 2015 edition of our yearly conference.

In his first keynote ‘Making Self-Service Analytics Work: Organizational, Architectural, and Governance Issues’ Wayne Eckerson will explain how to empower business users to create their own reports and models without creating data chaos. He will show how to build a self-sustaining analytical culture that balances speed and standards, agility and architecture, and self-service and governance.

In his second session ‘Best Practices in DataOps: Trends, Tips, and Techniques for Creating and Managing Modern Data Pipelines’ Wayne will discuss the state of data analytics pipelines. He thinks there is too little automation; minimal reuse of code and data; and lack of coordination. The result is poor quality data delivered too late to meet business needs. DataOps is an emerging approach for building data pipelines and solutions. Wayne will explore trends in DataOps adoption, challenges and best practices.
