Workshop17, West Street, 138 West St, Sandown, Sandton, 2031, Johannesburg, South Africa.
Join this free event to learn how cutting-edge technologies such as Data Automation, Snowflake’s elastic cloud data warehouse and Data Vault modelling work. We also discuss the business message of why these technologies represent the best ways to navigate today’s turbulent IT landscape.
Morning speaking sessions are followed by a case study from Tyme Bank, who will explain what the application of WhereScape Data Automation and Snowflake looks like in the real-world and how, in combination, they have changed working lives at the company.
In the afternoon we take to the laptops for a hands-on session to ‘test drive’ WhereScape RED and WhereScape 3D. Take your place in an agile data team and use automation to complete tasks in a fraction of the time it would take with hand coding. Face real-life scenarios and changing business requirements, working as a team but also competing to finish tasks first and win one of the great prizes on offer.
Data professionals fight a constant battle to implement the latest tech, keep what they already have at peak performance and remain agile to face ever-changing business requests. For this reason technologies that allow developers to do more with less to resource are quickly gathering momentum.
Snowflake’s elastic cloud data warehouse and WhereScape Data Automation software are chosen by companies who constantly differentiate to stay ahead. The increases in speed they produce when used together are multiplied to devastating effect, but one also enables the other. When migrating to Snowflake, WhereScape uses tried-and-tested templates to lift and shift not only data but the underlying data infrastructure, significantly shortening time to value for Snowflake projects.
Data Vault is now the modelling style of choice for companies looking for maximum agility from their complex data ecosystems. We’ve seen a huge spike in interest, with around one in two new customers choosing Data Vault to modernise and future-proof their architecture.
This event is suitable for data warehouse developers, data architects, IT management staff, CIOs/CTOs and data warehouse business users. Business users can be paired with a techie to see how automation software enables one developer to do the work of up to ten.
The event is run by WhereScape and local South African experts Slipstream Data.
