It’s designed to appeal to data and application architects, data scientists and analysts, software and system engineers, and project managers.

Data Security Forum

From our private lives, to the business world, to national security, cybersecurity is more important than ever, and the threats are evolving rapidly. In the first half of 2016 alone, over 900 data breaches were publicly disclosed, and those are just the ones we know about. The demand for data security skills in the job market has increased drastically. At the same time, the protection of our data and systems from theft and disruption has become a crucial undertaking where everyone plays a key role, IT and business professionals alike

It’s designed to appeal to data security professionals, information security directors, data governance managers, lawyers, and those concerned about the threats and opportunities posed by data security.

Hadoop Day

Since its beginning as a project aimed at building a better web search engine for Yahoo – inspired by Google’s well-known MapReduce paper – Hadoop has grown to occupy the center of the big data marketplace. From data offloading to preprocessing, Hadoop is not only enabling the analysis of new data sources amongst a growing legion of enterprise users; it is changing the economics of data

It’s designed to appeal to Hadoop experts and novices, business intelligence professionals, technologists, and data analysts.

Virtualization Day

The increasing size and complexity of data environments today is straining IT resources at most organizations, reducing agility, and increasing the costs and challenges associated with maintaining the performance and availability of business-critical systems. To address these concerns, many IT departments are looking for ways to automate routine tasks and free up assets. The use of virtualization to accomplish these goals is growing. Likewise, the adoption of cloud solutions is becoming more and more commonplace.

It’s designed to appeal to data administrators, customer experience managers, cloud technology innovators, and virtualization experts and novices.
