In just a few days, Las Vegas will be invaded by thousands of "BI heroes". If you've been following the Data news, you know that the upcoming Tableau Conference is about to take over the MGM hotel next week.
The event is expected to be one of the biggest Data events of the year. I still remember the first Tableau Conference, attended by a few hundred passionate data nerds like me. Times have changed: over the last 5 years, the Tableau community has grown by 8X and the company expects to double its customer base over the next 5 years! Tableau has freed the data locked in databases for decades and their tool has turned every analyst into masterful storytellers. The Data world is about to be disrupted again as Hadoop becomes the data platform of choice for many enterprises. And this is where AtScale comes in.
We will be at the conference, have a huge booth, great give-aways, new demos and a few announces...We've been a very active Tableau partner since our inception and have many common customers in common, many of which you'll get to meet at the event.
Here are 5 things we suggest you do to guarantee an outstanding week at #DATA15:
- Prepare for the Conference: Interested in becoming a BI on Hadoop hero pronto? Download the "BI on Hadoop" Success Kit here.
- Envision Your Week: The Tableau team has made their entire schedule available through a Web Connector. Connect Tableau 9.1 and visualize your week! Can't make the conference but still want to get the download? Contact our team here.
- Meet and Network with Data Heroes : GoPro, Evernote and Yellow Pages will be part of the group of companies talking about "BI on Hadoop" at the event. Join the "BI Heroes" session on Wed, 10/21 at 2:45pm. Be sure to show up early, prepare questions and be ready to be part of what could be the most participative session of the conference.
- Hydrate: MGM is big. Vegas can get hot. You'll want to stay fresh throughout the conference...an option is to get an AtScale "DataBottle" as the one shown above.
That's it! We hope you have great week and come back with lots of lessons to share with colleagues and partners...
