  • With recent advances in cloud technologies and artificial intelligence, organizations have a whole new playground of opportunity to gain more flexibility, scalability and cost control with their data than ever before. In 2018, HRS did this by first defining what they needed from their cloud data strategy and then seeing how our in-memory data analytics database could meet their data warehousing needs. The execution was more or less ‘do or die’ as success in any cloud transformation process is often an unavoidable and painful path organizations have to take. In the end it proved to be worthwhile as it set them up for their long-term future data strategy with improved flexibility to react fast and efficiently to any new opportunities that come their way.

  • Badoo is the largest social discovery network in the world with more than 420 million registered users, operating in 190 countries – and it’s available in 47 different languages. Their BI department manages more than 1.5Pb of raw data and develops many internal tools which are critical for business - such as A/B testing frameworks, data science automation, CRM reporting, performance marketing tools and many more. In this presentation Artem Ivanov will share Badoo’s 5 years’ journey into data engineering with you. They’ll cover the main challenges they’ve faced, and how our analytics database helped overcome them, while managing to meet the increasing demands from the business. They’ll also show you some of their in-house tools that use the parallel capabilities of our analytics database with Hadoop – and how this has led to great results in their data ecosystem.

  • Getting to grips with GDPR and data compliance can sometimes feel like you’re trapped on an unwinnable IT odyssey. In this presentation you’ll hear the trials and tribulations Areto faced when they initially set out on the lonely path of vendor selection, following the familiar Oracle and Teradata route. And ultimately, you’ll learn how they used Exasol’s in-memory analytical database to successfully implement a GDPR conform data vault architecture – giving them the unrivalled power, speed and control they needed to stay compliant.

  • Data and football are a great match and data is used in the sport at all levels to monitor performance, gain an advantage and change the game. The most popular sport in the world produces and consumes data in many ways, so we have assembled a panel of experts to share with you what difference data makes in football, how it is collected and what happens with it on and off the pitch. Mathieu Lacome (sports scientist, Paris Saint-Germain), Matthieu Lille-Palette (Opta), Pascal Bauer (DFB), and Ravi Mistry (The Information Lab) will discuss different aspects of sports analytics for football, bringing you an inside and behind-the-scenes perspective and a view from the fans. They will share their experiences in working with clubs and associations that face the same data challenges as many other businesses today. Join us for an engaging session all about the beautiful game and data, moderated by Katja Wunderlich, sports moderator for German national television.

  • Turning Big Data analytics into profit - how OTTO’s data scientists use our analytical database (With Bjoern Stachmann) In this presentation OTTO’s Bjoern Stachmann will demonstrate how their data scientists are using our analytical database to get more value from their Big Data architecture. By using a self-adjusted system called a Data Science Box, their data scientists have virtual access to any data source within the organization – be it their data warehouse, data lake or our database. Using pre-defined connectors out of the Data Science Box, OTTO can now easily access their data to find new business opportunities and any information that adds value to their enterprise You’ll learn why we added Virtual Schemas to the Data Science Box to help OTTO’s data scientists access data sources in relational models and tables. It’s enabled them to get easy, fast and secure access to data, so they can develop new trade mechanisms or features within their customer facing applications. Using our Virtual Schema as an access layer to classic data sources, also helps to supports their data security, encryption and decryption - without the need for separate toolsets or services. Mr. Stachmann will touch on the Exasol to Spark adapter, which allows a direct one-to-one data interaction between the systems without the need to use external tools, or add any complexity to the existing architecture. And at the heart of Mr Stachmann’s talk he’ll take you through how OTTO use our analytical database with the Data Science Box and Virtual Schemas to do away with the time consuming need to gather and merge high aggregate data and raw data out of different data silos for their fast exploration and predictions. Now, they can simply do analytics where ever their data is, whatever format it’s in - and get the highest performance response time’s they’ve ever had. It has helped them become much more efficient by finding new, valuable information out of the existing data treasures, resulting in higher value and lower risk to their core business.

  • Revolut is the largest and fastest growing challenger bank in the world. In the last year alone, their head count has grown from 300 to 900. Likewise, their data volumes are exploding, beating their 3 year projection within six months. Join Demeter Sztanko as he talks about their first-hand experience of using our analytics database in the highly competitive financial services sector – using data to tackle everything from compliance, customer experience to continued growth. And learn what’s next on their journey to becoming truly data-driven.

  • Our core belief is: Through sport, we have the power to change lives. To change lives we have to create direct relationships with consumers. The best way to accelerate building direct relationships is through digital. Digital transformation, however, is not only fundamentally changing the way we interact with our consumer but touching every part of the business. Improving digital capabilities along the entire value chain enables us to become faster, better and more efficient in every part of the organization. It enables us to take decisions faster, better and more efficiently. The underlying foundation is Data. Learn how adidas creates a connected experience around data, how this ambition translates into a scalable data architecture and what role we plan to give Exasol’s Advanced Scaling environment in this picture.

  • Picking the right cloud data warehouse isn’t always as straight forward as it seems. Many cloud vendors offer data warehouse as a service - but it often involves a lot of effort to fully operationalize it. And there can be a trade off as organizations struggle to get around the clock, peak performance for all users. Join Ram Mandala from Quantum Health as he talks through how they solved this by choosing our analytics database. You’ll learn how it gives them the flexibility to use any public cloud or on-premises solution and unrivaled performance without the need for heavy lifting in their infrastructure or database re-design.

  • Drive continuous adoption of analytics and foster a data-driven culture: HyperIntelligence has the potential to completely change the way organizations handle data, and deliver information directly to users' web-based workflows. HyperIntelligence, a brand new category of analytics, delivers insights without mouse click (zero-click intelligence). HyperIntelligence enables users to leverage the HyperCard ™ application which is available on the new MicroStategy 2019 platform: They just need to move the cursor over highlighted words in web pages and other browser-based applications in Google Chrome and directly see relevant and contextual information – also using language assistants, image recognition software and GPS applications. HyperCards facilitate the deployment of Zero-Click Intelligence to all users across the enterprise.

  • Eventim is one of the top international service providers for ticketing and live entertainment. In 2017, more than 250 million tickets were sold by their software solutions, in 23 countries. In 2013, Eventim decided to focus all data-driven initiatives in a new division called Information Science - using our analytics database as their data warehouse of choice. They will take you on a six-year journey, demonstrating how their use of our database has evolved, and what they have planned for the future of their world-wide analytics services. For instance, they’ll talk about the use of multiple analytics databases, with a range of different technical configurations (such as single and double-centred data clusters). And how they’ve setup their Big Data Stack (including Hadoop and one of our databases). They’ll also show you examples and learnings from their selected use cases between 2013-2019, including recommendations and real-time accounting support for partners.

Beyond the data frontier

We may never fully understand the complexities of our world but with all this data our fingertips, we’re getting significantly closer. As a business, you now have chance to be more agile, predictive and in tune with your customers needs than ever before.

But guess what? Everyone has the same idea as you. And stepping into this beguiling data frontier is a bit like stepping into the unknown depths of space. If you invest in the wrong tech or strategy you might end up with obsolete ideas. Yet you have no option to go forward.

The future of data analytics

That’s where we come in. Think of Exasol as your guides through the frontier – armed with the latest insights, proven expertise and a superfast and powerful data analytics platform. So let us show you what’s beyond the data frontier, whether you want to know how to extract valuable data insights, you’re wondering what to do in the cloud or on-premises, or just want to glimpse of what’s possible.
