The way we interact with our data is changing rapidly, as legacy on-premise repositories and systems are being augmented or replaced by cloud-native technologies. Companies are figuring out how they should manage data stacks or looking to update current systems to meet the needs of the business. At companies large and small, it’s easier than ever to get data into the hands of decision-makers; you just need to have the right architecture and process in place to do so.
Enter the Modern Data Stack Conference, our community-based event that will bring practitioners and leaders together to discuss the scale of the cloud and how to drive profit-generating analysis most effectively. Whether you’re considering your cloud data platform strategy for the first time, comparing SaaS BI solutions, building and maintaining your own data pipelines, or trying to optimize your existing stack, the Modern Data Stack Conference will offer relevant insights.
Join us for two days of learning and networking
Our free inaugural online conference will feature keynote speakers, panels, interactive workshops and how-to sessions. We’ll feature two half-days of learning on October 21 and 22, with the first day focused on business/data analytics and the second centered on data engineering.
Keynote speakers include: Fivetran CEO George Fraser and COO Taylor Brown; Martin Casada, general partner at Andreessen Horowitz; Tristan Handy, CEO and founder of Fishtown Analytics (the company maintaining dbt); Michelle Ufford, CEO of Notable; and Bob Muglia, Fivetran board member and former Snowflake CEO.
Workshops and panels will feature data analytics professionals from Peloton, Autodesk, Data Culture, Dialpad, Drizly, Fastly and more.
On the first day of the event, dedicated to business and data analytics, we’ll discuss how data impacts business and decision-making through presentations, panel discussions and tales of "wins" by data analysts from companies like Dialpad, AutoDesk and Emerys App & Sons. Topics will include:
- Scaling internal analytics
- How data automation boosts analyst productivity
- Building and enabling a company-wide data culture
- Tips for building data teams in an increasingly remote work environment
On day two, devoted to data engineering and operations, we’re discussing analytics engineering and providing data teams with actionable insights. We’ll use technical workshops, how-tos and discussions to explore topics such as:
- Automation in data warehousing
- Improving data models and overcoming "modeler bias"
- Evolving data engineering
- Moving to cloud and hybrid-cloud environments
