Over the last decade, executives at nearly every company have come to see data as a critical driver of value. The Strata Data Conference grew up alongside this realization. Whereas our initial audience was made up mostly of technical practitioners in new roles (data scientist, data engineer, data architect), our audience now also includes high-level executives with responsibilities in technology, marketing, finance, research & development, and general management. In order to better serve this high-level audience, we introduced the Strata Business Summit in early 2017.
At the center of the Strata Business Summit is a series of executive briefings: 40-minute surveys that cover topics of interest to executives (CxOs, vice presidents of technology, chief data officers, IT directors, etc.). At every Strata Business Summit, we cover a set of core topics that are of immediate concern to nearly every executive, as well as additional topics relevant to the local audience.
These briefings describe recent technical progress in the field, but more importantly, they include actionable frameworks that executives can immediately apply to their own work. Presentations at the Strata Business Summit should focus on managerial discussion and be accessible to a wide range of practitioners and generalists. Because these are briefings aimed at decision-makers we are looking for vendor-neutral perspectives and content.
