5 Best Reasons to Attend Informatica World 2017
What are the 5 best reasons to attend Informatica World 2017? I knew you were wondering and I’m glad you asked! Of course, this list will be a little different for each person you approach, but I’m happy to share my opinion here.
Most would predict that I’d answer with things like “visiting San Francisco”, which truly is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in the world. Or perhaps I’d answer with the obvious: The spectacular opportunity to hear from thought leaders like Michael Lewis and Kara Swisher. I couldn’t be more excited about both! But, from my perspective, the best reasons to attend are the opportunities to personally grow. By improving your own data management skills, you stand to gain a competitive advantage in a time of increasing complexity.
Data is well on the way to becoming the most strategic asset an organization holds. The staggering growth rates of data can’t be ignored. The gathering, management and usage of data is now crucial for nearly every business decision.
