WWDVC – Day 1 summary

Thank you for a Fantastic Day 1!

If you aren’t here, you truly are missing out!!    Thank you to one of our platinum sponsors: Talend and a silver sponsor SnowflakeDB for a great Hands-on today!!  Thank you to our hosts at Stoweflake Resort, they are once again providing stellar service and hospitality.

As we bring day 1 to a close, I’d like to offer these thoughts for you…

#1: Tweet about @Stoweflake our resort, the conference: #wwdvc, or ww #datavault conference/consortium, and our sponsors!!

#2: SHARE / Blog and post about your experiences with the conference.

#3: send me feedback, tell me what you like and don’t like, I will try to make the conference better next year.

We kicked off this morning with a huge brainstorming session, it was fantastic!  Thank you for participating.  Once again we spoke of relevant issues, technical issues, cross-selling, up-selling, positioning, teaming, agility, and more….   AND we got it on Video!!  We talked about hash keys, business keys, security, agility, big data, hadoop, data scientists, talking to CIO’s / CTO’s, dealing with “data warehouse replacement syndrome”…  We also discussed a bunch about Data Anarchy, Data Science, Self Service BI, and more.  We had 70 people in the discussion, it was amazing – full house!

We got a request to update the 15 year old Data Vault Checklist for DV2…

So – ALL conference attendees will have FREE access to the videos from the conference (all videos) once we get them edited and on line, on http://LearnDataVault.com  – YES We recorded the Hands-on sessions!!  Yes, we will do the same for the other sessions as well.

Those of you NOT attending this year, will be able to purchase access to the videos once we post them (for the same fees as the conference).
