New Horizons, New Possibilities: Announcing Data Virtualization Day 2014

With Big Data, the Cloud and the Internet of Everything transforming our world, the possibilities are staggering.  And status quo means falling behind.  These truths drive Data Virtualization Day 2014’s theme: New Horizons, New Possibilities.  

This year marks the fifth anniversary of Data Virtualization Day, the premier data virtualization industry event, where IT leaders stay informed of the latest trends and meet fellow innovators.

As host of Data Virtualization Day 2014, I would like to personally invite the entire data virtualization community to come together on October 1st, 2014, at the historic Waldorf Astoria in New York City, New York.

Our objective is to help you explore these new horizons and imagine these new possibilities.  In particular, Data Virtualization Day will address:

  • Why Big Data, the Cloud and the Internet of Everything are transforming business and IT?
  • How is data virtualization advancing to meet these opportunities?
  • What new data virtualization-based solutions are on the horizon?
  • Who is achieving significant business outcomes today?

Maintaining the Data Virtualization Day tradition, the all-day agenda will feature three data virtualization user case studies, presented by those users.  Past speakers have included CTO, CDO, and other executives from Goldman Sachs, Pearson, Comcast, NYSE, Franklin Templeton, Bank of America, Qualcomm, Sky Broadcasting and more.  And we are lining up a power-packed line up again this year to provide you with complete, insiders’ views into their advanced data virtualization deployments including business challenges, organizational transformation, technology adoption, and more.

Beyond the user speakers, industry analysts and Cisco executives will provide insights into trends and solutions that you can use as you map for your business’s data integration strategy.

And furthering the Data Virtualization Day tradition, winners of the 2014 Data Virtualization Leadership Awards will also be announced.  These are the best of the best.  Enjoy as we celebrate their accomplishments.

So join me, along with data virtualization’s vanguard, to explore these new horizons and imagine these new possibilities.  Registration is easy.  And the event is free.  Register now.

Announcing the 2013 Data Virtualization Innovative Solutions Award Winner

Making insightful usage of the growing plethora of internal data is difficult enough. But what if the business thrives and grows by developing data external to the firm, using it to sell insights to customers and to shape new products as well?  Associated challenges are even greater since each customer has different business contexts and needs. Innovation in such an environment would certainly take time, and new projects would be fraught with uncertainty, risk, and high cost.
