Back by popular demand,

TDWI San Diego is pleased to announce our first event of 2015:

“EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES”

Keynote and Thought-leader Panel
 

Moderator and Keynote Speaker:  Andrew Cardno -

Industry Thought Leader in Visual Analytics


This is an exciting time in BI.  There are a myriad of emerging technologies that promise to change the way we leverage data.  Database platforms, data movement, data virtualization, reporting, analytics, cloud, in-memory, big data -- buzz words that make you wonder:

  • Am I missing out on something?

  • What are the biggest/most significant trends?

  • How do I know if they are right for me?

  • How do I learn more about these new technologies?

We have been wrestling with the same questions, so we decided to invite industry thought leaders to discuss the direction that our industry is heading.  Andrew will kick off the afternoon by giving us an overview of the hottest, most significant trends and technologies.  This will be followed by a moderated panel discussion with a variety of thought-leaders from our sponsors.  Imagine one event that serves up the wisdom of many experts.

The panel is in place! This year, the panel features some very impressive thought leaders listed below:
