The focus of this year’s DW&BI Summit is very much on How! How do we transform our existing BI systems into future-proof BI systems. We know that many new tools and technologies are available that allow users to develop their own reports, to store and analyze big data, tools to developing logical data warehouses, but for most organizations the key question is still How? How should we use these tools and technologies correctly, how do we govern self-service BI, how do we migrate from a physical to a logical data warehouse, how do we prepare ourselves for the EU regulations for data privacy, how do we design our data visualizations effectively, and so on. The 2016 edition is all practical guidelines and do’s and don’ts. International speakers such as Mike Ferguson, Krish Krishnan, and Daragh O’Brien together with national speakers, such as Rick van der Lans, Harm van der Lek, Jan Henderyckx, Pieter den Hamer, Lex Pierik, and Emiel van Bockel are coming to share their wealth of experience with the attendees.
In general, attending the BI&DW Summit helps organizations to upgrade their current BI systems to future-proof BI systems, systems in which analysis of big data has been added, in which streaming data plays a role for real-time analytics, and in which self-service is more governed.
Some of the main topics that will be discussed these two days:
Can you only attend one day? Starting this year it is possible to attend only the first or only the second conference day and of course the full conference. The presentations by our speakers have been selected in such a way that they can stand on their own. This enables you to attend the second conference day even if you did not attend the first (or the other way around).
Who should attend
The two day DW&BI Summit is geared to for IT Executives, IT Management and Architects, business intelligence and data warehousing professionals who wish to take a detailed and practical look at the latest developments in Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence. The following professionals should attend:
