Cloudera Data Science Week 2016 in Asia Pacific is a week-long industry event that explores multi-faceted transformative technologies powered by Apache Hadoop for business growth.
Cloudera, the global provider of the fastest, easiest, and most secure data management and analytics platform built on Apache Hadoop and the latest open source technologies announced the inaugural launch of Cloudera Data Science Week Asia Pacific 2016.
Held across several markets in Asia Pacific from 3 to 9 December 2016, this series of events will bring together industry experts and distinguished speakers providing strategic insights around critical public and private sector issues on big data for senior executives.
Despite the tremendous growth of businesses utilizing big data, more than 65 percent of organizations are still at initial stages of experimenting with big data usage, according to IDC. Harnessing data, however, remains a business imperative, and providing real world solutions to such business challenges remains Cloudera’s goal through the establishment of this annual industry event.
Daniel Ng, Senior Director, Asia Pacific, Cloudera commented: “Cloudera is introducing the first ever Cloudera Data Science Week Asia Pacific. As organizations transition to life beyond big data and look to re-engineer their business by utilizing data, topics such as artificial intelligence come into play. Predicting big data’s future, exploring new opportunities, harvesting, and leveraging big data for innovation is just the start of this journey.”
Cloudera Data Science Week Asia Pacific is set to become an annual industry event, mobilizing organizations to gain competitive advantage with more meaningful insights, make quicker and sharper decisions, and discover issues and trends that affect their businesses.
Mike Olson and other senior Cloudera executives such as Amr Awadallah, Chief Technology Officer, Mick Hollison, Chief Marketing Officer, and Charles Zedlewski, Senior Vice President of Products will host dialogue sessions, workshops, and roundtables on data management, down to how government and public organizations can use analytics to gain a better understanding of enterprise operations, predict outcomes, and guard against unauthorized data access.
All events will culminate in the second edition of Strata + Hadoop World Singapore 2016, the annual big data industry conference co-sponsored by O’Reilly Media starting on 5 December 2016, where data scientists, analysts, and business executives address case studies, develop new skills, share emerging best practices, and build the future of big data.
With Cloudera’s Data Science Week Asia Pacific, companies will be better equipped to identify the challenges and pitfalls that organizations may face with data, to prepare their businesses for the year ahead.
