Digital Transformation: Your Way Through the Data Storm

Mick Hollison, Chief Marketing Officer, Cloudera 

At this time of chaos, organisations need the ability to unlock the value of any data anywhere at cloud speed and cloud-scale. Data has the power to transform business, society, and the way we live. In this keynote, you'll learn how Cloudera is partnering with leading enterprises to deliver the speed, agility, scale, and governance they need to power data-driven applications anywhere from the edge to AI via the industry's first Enterprise Data Cloud.

Future of the Enterprise Data Cloud

  • Fred Koopmans, VP of Product Management, Cloudera
  • Arun Murthy, Chief Product Officer, Cloudera

The Enterprise Data Cloud enables companies to build mission-critical and high value applications once, and run them anywhere. Cloudera’s next generation data platform is the industry’s first enterprise data cloud, delivering cloud-native agility across public and private clouds for a hybrid cloud deployment. Join us for this session, where Fred Koopmans will discuss the trends that will impact enterprise data platforms in the next few years.

Customer Panel: Delivering the enterprise data cloud

  • Dr. Kerem Tomak (Commerzbank)
  • Dr. Mark Ramsey (Ramsey International - formerly GSK, Samsung, IBM)
  • Paul  Mackay (Cloudera)
  • Chris Darvill (Cloudera)

The sheer pace of adoption for data and analytics has put a huge strain on legacy technology, and in particular, the data center. With this, almost all organisations have looked to the cloud, whether it be public, private or both to help them address the business need for speed.
In this panel discussion, we will explore the opportunities and challenges that a hybrid cloud approach to data and analytics presents to the enterprise.

Guest Keynote: The Story of the Future

K D Adamson, Futurist, Author, Presenter

Described as ‘a TED talk on steroids’ K D Adamson warns that the ‘Tomorrow Factory’s’ focus on technology is reducing people and businesses to passive, disenfranchised consumers of a technologically-defined future at a crucial turning point in our history.
