Description

Solving Data Challenges Together

Convergence is a one-day conference focused on enterprise data. MapR customers, partners and technical experts share their expertise on using data to build converged applications. Whether you are looking to leverage your data to innovate, reduce costs, or both, at Convergence we will solve data challenges together.

This single day event is a great chance to listen to and learn from companies at the forefront of using data to solve the key challenges that every organisation faces: how can they save money, create competitive advantage, attract and retain customers, or drive new revenue streams.

Dr. Ted Dunning of MapR will open the day with what will surely be an enlightened keynote on his unique observations of the world around us, and how data plays a role in making it a better place and he will be followed by Senior Data Warehouse Architect, Andreas Scheel, dicussing the Self Service BI &Analytics Architecture at XING.

Javier Cuerva will give a state of the nation on SAP Vora and how that is helping their customers bridge the gap between the SAP ecosystem and the big data world while Norbert Witzel of Amadeus will shed light on how they are using big data to support the global travel industry.

After lunch Hermann Wedlich will introduce NetApp's Data Management for Big Data Analytics while Dr. Tobias Abthoff from MapR partner Norcom will share an update on their and MapR's involvement in helping the leading German automotive companies in the race to develop Autonomous Drive cars.
