Data is now the world’s most valuable resource, with winners and losers decided every day by how well we collect, analyze, and act on data. However, most companies struggle to unlock the full value of their data, using outdated, outmoded data infrastructure.

Nikita Shamgunov examines the ways businesses use data for competitive advantage, the increased demands and new requirements this puts on data infrastructure, and what you should expect from the tools you use in order to succeed in this new world.

This session is sponsored by MemSQL.
