Denodo DataFest Conference to Kick Off Fourth Year in New York

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 7, 2019 — Denodo, the leader in data virtualization, today announced it will be holding its 4th annual user conference, Denodo DataFest, on October 10th and 11th in New York. With a resurgence in data integration, such as data virtualization, hybrid cloud/intercloud integration, machine learning, APIs, microservices, data catalogs, and more, senior IT and business practitioners are looking for innovative ways to leverage the cloud and to create value from their data assets. In this conference, attendees will learn strategies on how to leverage data virtualization to enable highly flexible, agile, and powerful BI architectures that are paving the way to multi-cloud adoption.

Conference sessions will help attendees learn ways to enable AI/machine learning using active metadata and data catalogs, and how to improve analytics using logical data warehouses and virtual data lakes. Registration for the in-person event or the online live stream can be done here.

“At Prologis we want our data scientists to be able to build fast and innovative data models so that our business users can leverage those models to answer critical business questions with speed and self-service,” said Luke Slotwinski, VP of Data and Analytics at Prologis. “I am thrilled and looking forward to sharing our success story of how we are leveraging Denodo Platform to empower our data scientist and business users, at Datafest 2019 in New York.”

Through this immersive, day-and-a-half-long conference, Denodo is bringing together visionary leaders and technical experts to help redefine how data is reshaping the modern enterprise and driving digital business.

“Today, businesses need to exploit data from a multiplicity of sources to gain more insights into customers, new market opportunities, and competition,” said Ravi Shankar, CMO at Denodo. “Equally critical is that success in cloud data analytics requires agile, real-time integration that can span a wide variety of data sources, including cloud and on-premises sources.
