The largest gathering of data and analytics leaders in North America is happening March 20 – 22nd in Orlando, Florida. Over 4,000 attendees will join in person to learn and network with peers at the 2023 Gartner® Data & Analytics Summit. This year’s conference is expected to be bigger than ever, as is Google Cloud’s presence!
We simply can’t wait to share the lessons we’ve learned from customers, partners and analysts! We expect that many of you will want to talk about data governance, analytics, AI, BI, data management, data products, data fabrics and everything in between!
We’re going big!
That’s why we’ve prepared a program that is bound to create opportunities for you to learn and network with the industry’s best data innovators. Our presence at this event is focused on creating meaningful connections for you with the many customers and partners who make the Google Cloud Data community so great.
We’ll kick off with a session featuring Equifax’s Chief Product & Data Analytics Officer, Bryson Koehler and Google Cloud’s Ritika Gunnar. Bryson will share how Equifax drove data transformation with the Equifax Cloud™. That session is on Monday, 3/20 at 4pm. After you attend it, you will realize why Bryson’s team earned the Google Cloud Customer of the Year award twice!
That night, from 7:30PM on, we will host a social gathering so you can meet with Googlers, SAP leaders and our common customers at the “Nothing But Net Value with Google Cloud and SAP” event.
On Tuesday, you’ll have at least 4 opportunities to catch me and the rest of the team:
At 10:35am, Starburst’s Head of Product, Vishal Singh & I will cover how companies can turn Data Into Value with Data Products. We’ll discuss the maturity phases organizations graduate through and will even give you a demo live!
At 11:00am, Dataiku’s Field CDO, Conor Jensen & I will join Johnson & Johnson’s Anuli Anyanwu-Ofili and Ameritas’ CDAO Lorenzo Ball to talk about Everyday AI and we will share the rules that leaders follow to succeed with Data & AI.
At 12:25pm, our panel of experts, LiveRamp’s Kannan D.R & Quantum Metric’s Russell Efird will join Google Cloud’s Stuart Moncada to discuss how companies can build intelligent data applications and how our “Built with BigQuery” program can help your team do the same.
That night, from 7PM on, I will be speaking at the CDO Club Networking event hosted by Team8, Dremio, data.world and Manta. Register here to attend!
But wait, there is more!
On Wednesday, our community will continue to feature great customer success stories and I’ll be there to support them.
At 11:30am, Tamr’s Head of Corporate Strategy Matthew Holzapfel & I will join P360’s CEO Anupam Nandwana, Thermo Fisher Scientific’s VP of IT, Abhijeet Bhandare to discuss what the move to data products means from a business perspective and how quality, trusted records underpin a Data Product strategy.
At 2:30pm, Nexla’s CEO and co-founder Saket Saurabh & I will join Johnson & Johnson’s Vasanth Thirugnanam & Stagwell’s CTO Mansoor Basha to discuss the Data Fabric architecture best practices innovators use to create secure and trusted Data Products.
And if all of this is not enough you will find some of our partners present inside the Google Cloud booth (#434). LiveRamp, Neo4j, Nexla, Quantum Metric, and Striim have all prepared innovative lighting talks that are bound to make you want to ask questions.
There are over 900 software companies who have built data products on our platform and while you don’t have 900 sessions at the event (we tried!), you can stop by our booth to inquire about the recent integrations we announced with Collibra, Elastic, MongoDB, Palantir, ServiceNow, Sisu, Reltio and more!
Top 5 Gartner sessions
I can’t wait to see all of you in person and our team looks forward to hearing how we can help you and your company succeed with data.
Beyond the above, there are of course many Gartner sessions that you should put on your schedule. In my opinion, there are at least 5 you can’t afford to miss:
Financial Governance and Recession Proofing Your Data Strategy with Adam Ronthal
What You Can’t Ignore in Machine Learning with Svetlana Sicular. I still remember attending her first session on this topic years ago — it’s always full of great stats and customer stories.
Ten Great Examples of Analytics in Action with Gareth Herschel. If you’re looking for case studies in success, sign up for this one!
Ask the Experts series, particularly the one on Cost Optimization with Allison Adams
Data Team Organizations and Efficiencies with Jorgen Heizenberg, Jim Hare and Debra Logan,
I hope you’ve found this post useful. If there is anything we can do to help, stop by the Google Data Cloud booth (#434).
