Informatica Day – Brussels is a half day event that brings together the Data Community’s brightest minds to push the boundaries of current thinking and discuss the role of data in the real-time digital enterprise of the future.

The agenda is based on the most popular sessions from the recent Informatica World event held in Las Vegas. Informatica v10, the latest version of our data management platform will officially be launched. Customer speakers from Philips & Proximus will share best practices, while internationally acclaimed thought leader in the area of the monetisation of companies' available (big) data Arent van ‘t Spijker, and Informatica’s Vice President Business Operations EMEA Greg Hanson, will present the keynotes.

Great data is at the heart of stronger businesses. It’s no longer a by-product. Clean, safe and connected data is the lifeblood that runs processes, powers machines, enables sensors and customises user experiences.

The Age of Engagement is the catalyst for organisations to streamline processes through consolidated applications, build efficiencies through real-time collaboration and decision-making, and to improve customer relationships through data-enabled interactions and 24/7 support.

During this event, customers (Philips & Proximus amongst others) will share valuable insight into the challenges they overcame in their journeys to build smarter systems, more intuitive services and better products. Both Informatica executives & industry experts will present their vision for the Age of Engagement.

The featured-packed agenda will focus on these four business-critical imperatives:

  • Next-generation analytics (Big Data)

  • Total customer relationship (Master Data Management)

  • Application consolidation and optimisation

  • Cloud acceleration (Cloud Data Integration)

Register now and get inspired at the one and only event where it’s all about your Data!
