The Third Phoenix Data Conference – the largest big data event in the Phoenix Valley had a tremendous response this year. Having established itself as a must attend big data event in the Phoenix area, the event this year attracted thought leaders and key companies discussing latest trends and technologies in the big data space. Over 350 technologists, business leaders, data analysts and engineers attended the 2016 conference
The Phoenix data conference 2016, that concluded last Saturday focussed on practical big data use cases from leading analytics companies like Cloudera, SAP, Clairvoyant, MapR, StreamSets, Microsoft, Confluent, SnapLogic, DataTorrent, Tresata, Amazon, Choice Hotels, MemSQL, Wells Fargo and others. Technology leaders in the big data space shared innovative implementations and advances in the hadoop space. Specific challenges around security, talent availability, technical deployments, managed services etc were discussed by the speakers.
We would like to thank our speakers, sponsors, all the attendees and the volunteers for making the Phoenix Data Conference – 2016 a huge success. The intent of the conference was to encourage local community to come together and learn from other practitioners and experts in this field. We strongly believe that an active community and exposure to new ideas is key to help improve the local talent base and improve opportunities for every one. We really hope an educated and well informed talent pool will help bring more interesting companies and work to the greater Phoenix area.
None of this would have been possible without the speaker’s time and effort to share their knowledge with us. It was a pleasure to host all of you. We had a good mix of sessions that included techniques to solve problems using different products, lessons learnt based sessions, deep dive into certain technology, and also a showcase of how companies are implementing their big data strategy.
A Big Thank You also to all the attendees, all the discussions and questions made for a very engaging day. You made the event a great success!!
In addition to the regular monthly meetups, and the Phoenix Data Conference – we also hosted an all day hands on session on Hadoop. Based on the interest and the feedback we received, we will be hosting more workshops in the future to provide hands on training for Hadoop.
