TDWI World Conference 2010 "Creating an Agile BI Environment: Delivering Data at the Speed of Thought" to Take Place August 15-20, 2010 in San Diego, CA

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. The summit, which has a focus on "Agility, Alignment, and Analytics," is designed for business/IT executives, directors and senior managers. It features more than a dozen speakers and workshops, case studies from Zynga, Netflix, Intuit, and BlueShield of Tennessee, peer networking opportunities and a "Future of BI" panel.

In addition, TDWI's Certified Business Intelligence Professional (CBIP) is the business intelligence and data warehousing industries most meaningful and credible certification program. Attendees at the TDWI World Conference 2010 will have the opportunity to prepare for and complete the CBIP exams.

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan. It must do so by realizing that we now live in a data-driven age, and that technologies such as Cloud Computing, Big Data, the IoT, Cognitive Computing, and Blockchain are only tools. In her general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Rebecca Wanta explained how the strategy must focus on DX and include a commitment from top management to create great IT jobs, monitor ...

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day. What isn’t so obvious about this prediction: where that growth will occur. The retail, healthcare, and industrial/supply chain industries will likely see the greatest growth. Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
