Conference Description

The Data Architecture Summit will cover the most important issues and technologies enabling the design and management of a modern Data Architecture. 
Data Architecture has long been at the intersection of business and technology. The role of the Data Architect is to interpret the language and objectives of business sponsors into designs that can be implemented by the technical experts and vice versa, they translate system designs and technological capabilities to the needs of the organization. Recently, this job has become more challenging (and interesting!) with the emergence of Big Data, the Cloud, Data Science, new Database technologies, and Data Governance.
The goal of the Data Architecture Summit is to provide a comprehensive educational program that defines the essential elements of a modern Data Architecture, and explains how you can create it for your own organization. Whether you’re looking to build or buy your new architecture, the Data Architecture Summit will provide the essential knowledge and language to understand the options. If you know you need to re-tool or upgrade your current architecture, attend this event and you’ll leave with a comprehensive understanding of your technology and design options and real-world advice on planning a smooth migration from industry professionals.

You’ll learn about these critical aspects of modern Data Architecture:

  • GraphGrid

    GraphGrid helps organizations connect their data in context so they can make better decisions and integrate with AI. With data stored in tables, organizations lack context and only utilize about 10% of their data’s value. GraphGrid makes all of your organization's data readily available in context through a knowledge graph, creating relationships that both humans and machines can use in their analyses to give your data meaning. These new data relationships help you make better decisions and transforms the kinds of insights you produce in real-time. GraphGrid integrates with all of the existing data systems, both structured and unstructured, across your organization. GraphGrid can be deployed anywhere and is trusted by the U.S. government and other large organizations. You already have the data — we believe you should be able to utilize more than a fraction of it.



  • IBM

    Watson is the AI platform for business, powered by data. Watson can turn unstructured business data into actionable insights that enhance decision making. Watson understands the world in the way that humans do through senses, learning and experience. It learns at scale, reasons with purpose and interacts with humans naturally.
