Spring is here! We’re warming up and getting ready for the bloom and boom of our annual Summit conference. In just a couple of months – June 4-7 to be exact – we head down to sunny Orlando, Florida for an event filled with great people, networking, cool technology, learning, and fun. Summit 2019 will include all of our favorite traditions, as well as introducing some new features to keep our customers and partners evolving and on the leading edge of this digital era.
Summit is first and foremost about our customer community, but it also attracts like-minded luminaries from the press, industry analysts, esteemed partners, and tech experts from around the globe. Attendees have a great opportunity to meet a diverse group of individuals from a variety of backgrounds and roles. This gives us all the chance to be exposed to new ideas, and also caters to individual interests and technical experience levels. Whether you’re a seasoned data pro, developer, technical architect, business analyst, or business leader looking to leverage your data more effectively, Summit’s action-packed agenda will offer something for you.
This year we focus squarely on the future of data and analytics: Collaboration. Artificial Intelligence. Scalability. The Nirvana of Trusted Data. These are just a few of the topics we will be exploring together. Let’s look at some of the ways Summit will help guide you on your journey:
- Summit brings together the industry’s most influential thought leaders and change makers. Don’t miss their take on what’s next – we’ve got an outstanding line up of industry analysts and thought leaders from Gartner, Forrester, Ventana Research, and more
- Want to dive deeper into your technical skills for data management or analytics? Join one of our hands-on data labs and analytics labs offered for every experience level
- As a result of the overwhelmingly positive feedback to last year’s inaugural "Women in Technology” event, we will be bringing back the interactive session with panel discussion. You’ll hear different perspectives on the challenges and opportunities for women in technology, and the importance of diversity and inclusion in company culture – all are welcome to attend and join in the discussion!
- Finally, we know our users represent a wide range of industries and that’s why we offer a selection of customer-led sessions. Some of the world’s most innovative organizations will share their stories at Summit, including United Way, Coty, State of Michigan, Colorado State University, US Bancorp, Elavon, Brinker International, and Voya to name a few. From healthcare to finance, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from other professionals in their field and learn how they are tapping the power of data to help their business move forward
We know that after attending a full day packed with a selection of our 100+ sessions, Summit attendees will need a chance to relax. That’s why we also offer opportunities to unplug and have fun with sunrise yoga and meditation sessions, as well as various giveaways and social networking events. Looking for more of a thrill? Summit attendees will once again have access to all that Universal Studios has to offer for an unforgettable night of fun.
Since last year’s conference, countless trends have continued to influence and mold the industry. Whether it’s your first year attending or your 20th, you’ll leave with new knowledge and connections to leverage in your life and career.
The future starts now – join us at Summit!
