Data: be a disruptor or get disrupted

Data is to this century what oil was for the previous. The most successful market disruptors have one thing in common: they have Data at the centre of every decision they take. Vertica has been at the heart of the birth and growth of these companies. Being at the centre of analytics in organizations like Uber, Facebook or Tesla; Vertica has gotten a distinct point of view on what works and what doesn’t.
Whether in the business data warehouse, IT operations management, application development or Security; many organization get into similar pitfalls when they try to put data at the heart of their decision making. In this session we will look into these pitfalls, how to overcome and discuss some use cases and experiences.
