DataOps Boot Camp

The world of data management, with its rigid schemas, silos and manual processes, has historically been at odds with the fast, automated, highly-iterative world of DevOps. Building upon the success of DevOps, DataOps has emerged as an agile methodology to improve the speed and accuracy of analytics through new data management practices and processes, from data quality and integration, to model deployment and management. By leveraging automation, data democratization and greater collaboration amongst data scientists, engineers and other technologists, DataOps can help organizations improve the time-to-value of their data. Many insights-driven enterprises have already adopted agile approaches to data science, including Netflix, Facebook and GSK. Register for DataOps Boot Camp today to hear about the key supporting technologies, strategies, real-world success stories and how to get started on your DataOps journey.

Access to DataOps Boot Camp is included when you register for a All Access or Full Two-Day Conference Pass or as a stand alone registration option. View all our registration options here.

C202. The Rise of Containers

11:45 AM2019-05-222019-05-22

Wednesday, May 22: 11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

The use of containers—which enable applications, data, dependencies, and runtimes to be housed within a portable environment to support greater flexibility—is becoming more widespread.

Understanding Database Containerization

11:45 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Container usage is now being adopted by organizations of all sizes, from small startups to companies with huge, established microservices platforms. This presentation is aimed at helping practitioners navigate the minefield of database containerization and avoid some of the major pitfalls that can occur.

C204. Unlocking the Power of Data Wrangling

03:00 PM2019-05-222019-05-22

Wednesday, May 22: 3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.

Data wrangling skills and capabilities are critical and a true business imperative. Organizations that are unable to derive true business insights from data will be left behind in the ever-changing and fast-moving digital economy.

AI for Good: AI, Bad Guys, & Messy Data

3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.

All the information that is needed to find and stop bad actors from entering our financial system already exists and is available to you today; it’s just buried in terabits of messy, unstructured data all over the internet. For those performing investigations and evaluating risk, this needle in a haystack-of-needles problem is huge and growing: Unstructured data already dominates the web (growing exponentially year over year), and the traditional technology these departments use cannot keep up. Recent developments in natural language processing technology (NLP), the field of AI that focuses on human language, have, for the first time, made it possible for automated systems to find and deliver identity-relevant intelligence hidden in unstructured textual data. These innovations unlock a new world of actionable insight, providing much-needed ammunition in the fight against fraud, money-laundering, financial crime, and terrorism.
