Bondi Beach Isn’t the Only Reason to Go to Sydney Next Week: 3 DataWorks Summit Keynotes to Attend

I’m very excited to be heading down under for DataWorks Summit/Hadoop Summit, at the International Convention Centre in Sydney, Australia. This big data community event designed for developers and technical decision makers and will be packed with information—featuring breakout sessions and crash courses on everything from open source technology best practices to real-life experiences shared by the community. There is something for everyone, whether you are just beginning your big data journey or have vast big data experience and insights to share. DataWorks Summit/Hadoop Summit has become a must-attend event to maximize the value of your investments.

1. Trends in Analytics

Hortonworks Chief Technology Officer Scott Gnau and other thought leaders will examine the trends and key requirements for evolving to the next-generation of analytics and operations. This keynote speech will touch on the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in data science.

2. Data Science in Business

I’m also looking forward to hearing Madhu Kochar, vice president of analytics, product development, and client success at IBM, speak on delivering data science to the business. He’ll also discuss how IBM is making data science accessible to all by simplifying the use of a range of open source technologies and data sources, including high-performing and open architectures geared for cognitive workloads.

3. The Fast Path to Live Streaming

Finally, it isn’t just about how to go from zero to live streaming in under 10 minutes—Andrew Psaltis, HDF/IoT product solutions architect at Hortonworks, will walk attendees through the progression of data in motion, and what it means to big data analytics and the business of enhancing data. More importantly, he’ll discuss how it makes data more useful to your business and your customer experience.
