Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the industry’s only Pervasive Data Intelligence company, today shared new and expanded elements for this year’s Teradata Universe, the conference where customers, business leaders, experts and innovators come together to focus on the possibilities, opportunities and challenges of next-gen analytics. With a goal of using data and analytics to find answers to the toughest business challenges, this year’s event will include thought-leading keynotes from industry pundits, nearly 100 sessions about real-world implementations of Teradata solutions and significantly expanded education offerings throughout the week.
Held Oct. 20-24 in Denver, Colorado, Teradata Universe will host thousands of attendees with business, marketing or technical backgrounds, who select, implement and use analytic data solutions. Heralding from more than 45 different countries, companies of all sizes, and across all industries, attendees will gain a plethora of new contacts in the space, thanks to the conference’s natural ability to draw the best data and analytics professionals to daily networking events.
“We’re proud that Teradata Universe is the essential data analytics conference for people interested in using data to change the way they do business,” said Martyn Etherington, Teradata’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Session tracks feature cutting-edge technology topics like Cloud, Artificial Intelligence and deep dives into our flagship Vantage product, but also include the often-forgotten, crucial building blocks to making those technologies operational, such as Data Governance and instilling a Culture for Analytics. With a complete understanding of how these elements work together, attendees will come away from Teradata Universe with the insight and skill to implement changes in their own companies – ensuring they get answers from their analytics.”
