As part of the Microsoft Cloud O/S initiative there will be a week of community driven events focusing on different aspects of the Cloud O/S story including “Unlock insights on any data”
New advances in cloud, data platform, data mining and visualisation technologies are enabling the next generation of analytics solutions to be built. These solutions are combining structured and unstructured data from a huge range of different sources, taking advantage of the scale, openness and economics of public cloud technologies and enabling analysts, data scientists, database administrators and developers to deliver compelling insight and predictive analytics.
On 9th September at the Microsoft offices in Cardinal Place, leading members of the Microsoft MVP community are delivering a series of lectures, q & a and networking sessions on different approaches to the delivery of enterprise data platforms and analytics solutions.
The day will start 9am with breakfast/networking and at 10am the formal proceedings will begin with a keynote on the impact of the cloud, mobile and advances in end-user tools on the use of data in organisations including a customer case study. Following the keynote, the day will split into two tracks running from 11:15am to 5pm.
This page allows you to register to attend Track 2:
Track 2 will focus on the creation of Business Intelligence and advanced analytics solutions that utilise both structured and un-structured data, demonstrate the use of data mining and predictive analytics technologies and also demonstrate how advanced visualisation technologies can be used by business users to deliver the insight and action required to drive real value from data.
