Strata Data Conference Overview: Putting big data to work

Program | Conference leadership | Industry snapshot | Who attends | Why participate


Strata Data Conference is where cutting-edge science and new business fundamentals intersect—and merge. It's a deep dive into emerging techniques and technologies. You'll dissect case studies, develop new skills through in-depth tutorials, share emerging best practices in data science, and imagine the future.

Formerly known as Strata+Hadoop World, the conference was created in 2012, when O'Reilly and Cloudera brought together their two successful big data conferences.

Program Chairs Doug Cutting (Chief Architect at Cloudera, and founder of Apache Hadoop) and Jason Dai (CTO, Big Data Technologies at Intel), together with Program Development Director Ben Lorica (Chief Data Scientist, O'Reilly) have created a program that covers the entire range of big data tools and technologies. Strata Data Conference covers current hot topics like AI and machine learning, and focuses on how to implement data strategies.

Strata Data Conference in Beijing is presented by O'Reilly Media, Inc. and Cloudera. O'Reilly Beijing is an international branch of O'Reilly Media, Inc.
