The Strategic Importance of Data in the Shift to the Intelligent Enterprise:
This session will highlight how exponential data growth amplifies the opportunity for enterprises to be more insight led in delivering business value. To realize this opportunity we have to redefine our Target Operating Models with Data at the heart of this SAP enabled transformation. However, a Data Driven Strategy is not just about technology and new platforms - its important, but it has to be balanced with how we think about the new personas in the organization as people become data consumers, not data processors; the data sourcing approaches both from internal and external systems; and finally how data and the associated insight is driving new intelligent processes and business models.

Digital Driven Integration - Driving Digital Transformation

Legacy systems hold 80% of the world’s data and are in 71% of Fortune 500 companies.  This becomes a challenge to move quickly as closed legacy systems are not ‘digital-friendly.’ Over 80% of all digital transformation projects are either seriously delayed or fail due to integration challenges. Companies know how to create legacy system APIs, but it takes months putting projects at risk.  In this presentation we will discuss a new approach to Digital-driven integration to reduce risk, cost, time, & resources.

Accelerate Your Transformation with Unified Analytics

Virtually every company is experiencing exponential growth in data volumes from new sources, including customer and device data from outside of the data center. Many of them are struggling with data silos, including large volumes of historical data stored on-premises, and HDFS and object storage data stored on-premises and in multiple clouds. The most disruptive organizations are able to leverage all of their data to produce real-time and predictive insights that generate value for their customers and their businesses. During this session, Jeremiah Morrow, Senior Industry Product Marketing Manager for Vertica, will share how you can become a Data Disruptor and accelerate your transformation by producing analytic insights based on all of your data, regardless of where it resides, with unified analytics.

Next Generation Data Strategies: Removing Data Gravity

Every company is a data company and enterprises are on a digital transformation journey to stay competitive. But application transformation programs like CI/CD, SRE, AI/ML and replatforming are starved for data. Without data-ready environments, projects lack the test infrastructure for fast developer feedback, delay root cause analysis in case of events and prevent Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning teams from accelerating the development of algorithms meant to shift the business. As a result, organizations lose developer productivity, miss timelines and overrun budgets.

Over the last two decades, storage, compute, and code have all been automated. But data has remained heavy, slow, and complex. Data is the last automation frontier. Today the world's biggest and most successful companies are not just tech companies. They are data companies—masters of data management and utilization. Delphix is passionate about unlocking the data potential for companies around the world, and helping every company transform into a data company. In Alex's presentation, you will learn about how some of the biggest, most innovative companies in the world are applying modern-day approaches to data by employing the next generation of data strategies.
