5 Must Attend Sessions at Next Week’s TDWI Anaheim Conference

Heading to TDWI in Anaheim?

It’s that time of year again for TDWI in Anaheim. This year’s show will focus on Analytics, Big Data & Data Science training. BI Analysts, business users and IT architects alike attend this conference to stay sharp on different areas of focus, new trends, and best practices.

If you’re like us, you already have your conference pass, your bags are packed, schedules are built, and you’re ready for an immersive week of keynotes, sessions, labs, workshops and more. With over 65 breakout sessions and 5 core learning tracks, it can be hard to decide which ones to attend.

Here are five sessions that made our list:

  1. TDWI Data Virtualization: Solving Complex Data Integration Challenges
  2. TDWI Data Governance Innovations: Adapting for Agile, Big Data, and Cloud
  3. Organizing the Data Lake: Architectures for Enabling Analytics and Self-Service
  4. Curating and Cataloging Data: Managing Data in a Self-Service World
  5. Data Discovery, Exploration, and More: The Latest Innovations in Analysis and BI Tools

Why the focus on Self-Service BI & Analytics? Because this has arguably been one of the greatest game changers to hit the BI & analytics space in the last decade.

What is self-service BI?  Gartner defines it as a  form of business intelligence (BI) in which line-of-business professionals are enabled and encouraged to perform queries and generate reports on their own, with nominal IT support. Self-service analytics is often characterized by simple-to-use BI tools with basic analytic capabilities and an underlying data model that has been simplified or scaled down for ease of understanding and straightforward data access.
