Offers the Latest Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing Methodologies and Trends to Validate Current Strategies and Directions

RENTON, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/16/10 -- TDWI (The Data Warehousing Institute™), the premier provider of in-depth, high-quality education and research in the business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing (DW) industry, today announced it will present the TDWI World Conference 2010 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego Hotel, August 15-20, 2010. The conference is themed "Creating an Agile BI Environment: Delivering Data at the Speed of Thought."

"Agile BI is coming of age and the need to learn best practice approaches to deliver real business value faster and more flexibly has never been greater. Not only is 'Agile' tied to design and development, but also to how we deliver analytics, manage our organizations and plan our infrastructures," said Paul Kautza, Director of Education of TDWI. "Our event is designed to help attendees stay abreast of the latest business intelligence and data warehousing trends as well as methodologies and technologies to help validate current strategies and directions. We look forward to providing our attendees with the information they need to make informed business decisions."

TDWI (TDWI.org), a division of 1105 Media, Inc., is a comprehensive resource for industry information and professional development opportunities. TDWI brings more than a decade of experience to the table when delivering high-impact education for BI and DW professionals.

According to the report from Forrester Research "Agile BI: Best Practices for Breaking Through the BI Backlog," business intelligence can -- and must -- become more responsive. The survey shows that 51 percent of respondents say that BI requests tend to accumulate (as a backlog) in their organizations, while 66 percent say BI requests accumulate precisely because their IT organization already has too much on its plate. Seventy percent of survey respondents say their requirements change on a monthly, daily, or even hourly basis. What's more, 22 percent of respondents believe their requirements change too frequently for traditional BI applications to "keep up."

The TDWI World Conference 2010 will offer more than 50 in-depth, vendor-neutral BI and DW courses -- including 15 courses dedicated to "Creating an Agile BI Environment." The courses will be presented by leading business intelligence and data warehousing experts and practitioners. Attendees will learn about business intelligence essentials; developing an agile business intelligence environment; business analytics, data management -- quality, governance, Master Data Management (MDM) and integration; data modeling; and professional development.

Addressing the rapidly-changing world of BI and DW management, the keynote speakers will provide insights into the world of Agile Business Intelligence and the affect it will have on the world of BI and DW and offer practical advice for succeeding in this volatile business climate. Keynote speakers include:

  • Wayne Eckerson, Director, TDWI Research, "The Secrets of Creating an Agile, Adaptable BI Environment"
  • Dr. Ken Collier, Founder and President of KWC Technologies, "Katabatic Winds of Business Intelligence"

Held jointly with the TDWI World Conference, the BI Executive Summit Program is dedicated to helping deliver on the promise of business intelligence.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
