BigQuery, Google’s serverless, petabyte-scale, low-cost analytics data warehouse, is based on over 10 years of innovation at Google. BigQuery has no infrastructure to manage, and you don’t need a database administrator, so you can focus on analyzing data to find meaningful insights. It is a heavily used product internally, and it now serves as a powerful analytics data warehouse for all types of organizations from startups to Fortune 500 companies.

Jordan Tigani puts BigQuery to the test by performing interactive analytics against a 1 PB dataset, showcasing the exciting new features that make this process easy, fast, and affordable, and demonstrates the simplicity of managing your petabyte-scale data with “NoOps” at all.

This session is sponsored by Google.
