It was so great to see so many Looker customers and partners under one roof at JOIN 2017 in September. It granted us real opportunity to learn about the new tools and technologies our customers are using. It also revealed the broad range of innovation advancing across our partner network. From data collection, to analytics, to business decision making, companies are striving trying to bring agility to each step of the business intelligence process.
Next week, Looker is pleased to be sponsoring Denodo DataFest, the 2nd annual user conference hosted by our data-friends at Denodo.
Things get underway in New York City on October 19th and 20th before rolling into London on 26, October. Both events will be streamed live for those who can’t attend in person.
Sessions at DataFest will explore the ways some of today’s most innovative companies are using Data Virtualization as part of their data stack to become more agile and ultimately drive more business value out of their analytics.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how this flexible and agile approach to data integration technology can help you to stitch together the widest range of data sources - in real-time - to create a comprehensive data fabric.
Day 1 of Datafest NYC will feature a discussion around self-service BI that you won’t want to miss.
Customers are using Denodo and Looker to accelerate critical self-service data initiatives. To shed light on this, my co-Looker and VP of Customer Success, Geoff Guerdat will sit on with a panel of industry veterans to discuss the importance of self-service data access as a modern business driver.
Personally, I’m looking forward to the Boot Camp being held on Day 2 of the New York event.
The Data Virtualization Architect Boot Camp will provide a deep-dive of common data virtualization architectural patterns as well as performance optimization, data services governance, scalability and operation.
This promises to be the most valuable and tangible experience of the event, exploring how data virtualization is solving important, real-life business problems.
Whether in New York, London or streaming online, we hope you’ll attend.
See you there!
