Hands-on Cloud Analytics


Get hands-on experience in analytics behind the keyboard and discover what works for you and your organisation

Our 2017 schedule contains two hands-on Labs, where a limited number of members can get acquainted with new tools in analytics in a full day training setting. These member-only sessions are practical one-day immersions in an analytical tool for technology specialists as well as for power users.


With so many meaningful data in the cloud, it is a viable option to collect, cleanse, store and exploit these data in an end-to-end cloud environment. From source to target, Cloud Analytics provide scalable solutions. Start with your credit card and finish with a solid addition to your existing analytics infrastructure.

Cloud Analytics are key to flexibility and business agility. Business analysts, data analysts as well as “classical” BI developers and designers will experience the advantages of Cloud Analytics.

During this session, you walk through simplifying data processing as a data bus comprising ingest, store, process, and visualize and building an analytics application in real time using a combination of an open source technology, as well as products and services from a cloud platform provider. Along the way, you review architecture design patterns for analytical applications and get access to labs so that you can build and customize the application yourself. 

Seats are restricted to members and limited to twelve, so book your seat ASAP!
