The Final Countdown to Datanova Begins

By: Daniel Cuffley
February 3, 2021

We’re less than a week away from Datanova, Starburst’s two-day virtual conference designed to empower data teams around the world to get the most and best out of their data. More than 2,000 data and analytics leaders and enthusiasts will come together on the 9th and 10th of February to hear, learn, and share perspectives and experiences with each other. 

The event will cover almost every aspect of analytics – from X Analytics, cloud migration, data mesh architecture to data gravity, the future of data and an Oxford debate where industry leaders will make their cases for data warehouses, data lakes and data lakehouses on a panel moderated by Cindi Howsen, Chief Data Strategy Officer at ThoughtSpot. With more than twenty sessions, and focused topics for data leaders, data engineers, architects, administrators, scientists and analysts, there will be something for everyone!

Prestigious Sponsors and Speakers 

We’re also excited to welcome our established technology partners from the data space, including AWS, Blue.cloud, Google Cloud, Immuta, Looker, Privacera, Red Hat, Salesforce, Slalom, ThoughtSpot, and Trace3. Experts from Blue.cloud, Google Cloud, Red Hat, and ThoughtSpot will join our impressive speaker lineup that also features Comcast, Digital Reality, EMIS Health, Noteable, and ThoughtWorks and, of course, many of our own experts here at Starburst.

As our Chief Marketing Officer Jess Iandiorio mentions we’re looking forward to Bill Nye, ‘The Science Guy’, delivering a fascinating keynote speech on how his latest project with the Planetary Society involves shooting meteors with lasers to predict and mitigate asteroid collisions with Earth.

And from outer space to a subject that we’ve all become intimately familiar with – the pandemic; we’ve got Richard Jarvis of EMIS Health talking about the impact of Covid-19 on data strategies. Clearly, Covid-19 has had a huge impact on how we live, work, and shop, so Richard Jarvis, Tony Baer from dbInsight and Syed Mahmood at Privacera will discuss how organisations have adapted to this, changing and pivoting their analytics models accordingly to cope.


Something for Everyone

It’s going to be a packed two days, so whether you’re at the start of your data journey or already making good progress, there will be something for you. As an added bonus, there will be hands-on training and trials of Starburst, not to mention that all attendees will receive a copy of O’Reilly’s definitive guide to Presto (usually retailing at £42).

Finally, you’ll be pleased to hear that you won’t need to worry about calculating time zones for the event – there are separate timings for Europe and the US to make sessions as accessible as possible for our attendees around the world.

There’s still time to sign up, so please join us to learn how to unlock the value of your data and accelerate your analytics.
