What you'll learn

  • Learn how to build an edge-to-cloud data pipeline that enables businesses to maximize the competitive differentiation


As companies evolve from silos of big data analytics to using data analytics as the core of their business differentiation, it becomes necessary to shift the focus from point projects and infrastructure architecture to a centralized data architecture. This involves thinking holistically about the data pipeline from edge to core to cloud, considering the variety of available processing engines and their future extensibility and variability as the data pipeline evolves over time.

Santosh Rao explores the architecture of a data pipeline from edge to core to cloud and explains how to build a solution architecture that enables businesses to maximize the competitive differentiation with the ability to unify data insights in compelling yet efficient ways.

This session is sponsored by NetApp.
