Presentation: How DV puts Enterprise Machine Learning Programs into Production

Advanced data science techniques, like machine learning, have proven an extremely useful tool to derive valuable insights from existing data. Platforms like Spark, and complex libraries for R, Python and Scala put advanced techniques at the fingertips of the data scientists. However, these data scientists spend most of their time looking for the right data and massaging it into a usable format. Data virtualization offers a new alternative to address these issues in a more efficient and agile way.
Attend this session to learn how companies can use data virtualization to:

  • Create a logical architecture to make all enterprise data available for advanced analytics exercise.
  • Accelerate data acquisition and massaging, providing the data scientist with a powerful tool to complement their practice.
  • Integrate popular tools from the data science ecosystem: Spark, Python, Zeppelin, Jupyter, etc.

Presentation: Don't Simply Show your Data—Tell a Story with it!

Technologies like Tableau make it easier than ever for business people to access and explore their data. As a result, more insights are uncovered within companies every day. However, unless we can communicate these insights effectively, no one will act on them, and no change will occur. In this session, we will explore ways to overcome this too familiar 'insights dead-end'.
