From 23 to 24 October 2018 a large conference Gartner Data & Analytics Summit 2018 was held in Frankfurt (Germany). Unidata became the official sponsor of the event. During two days, leading analysts and experts in the field of data management shared current market trends, talked about the latest innovations in the area of data and made predictions in this field. It is worth noting the reports on Data Governance, Data Quality as well as the trends of “digitalization of modern society”.
Another increasing trend is the allocation of separate data management offices in large enterprises and companies. And the leading role here will be taken by Chief Data Officers, CDO. The responsibilities of the CDO include building the infrastructure for working with data, managing data quality and architecture, managing master data and reference data, metadata and business glossaries. Modern data management platforms such as Unidata are needed exactly for these tasks. Another of the most important tasks of CDO will be management of business users’ behavior. Based on the analysis of their behavioral stereotypes in the near future, a strategy for the development of data management platforms will be built, including the subsequent robotization of these processes.
Accordingly, a clear trend is to close the gap between operators and data analysts and end-users of information as well as accelerate the process of transferring and using information within companies. Thus, the leading data management solutions should focus primarily on business consumers involving them in the data management cycle.
At the Unidata booth the company's specialists presented an English version of the platform, telling visitors of the event in detail about the company's latest achievements. The decoration of the first day of the event was an evening reception organized on the booth. Unidata presented cryo-cocktails that everyone could try. The muffled light, steam flowing from test tubes with a drink, a container with nitrogen cooled to minus 196 degrees Celsius - all this created its own special atmosphere that the public liked.
