The Internet of Things (IoT) and data go hand in hand. Combining IoT’s power of connectivity and the cloud with advanced analytics unlocks the true value of the assets and devices you already own. Together, data and IoT can uncover agile and data-driven insights your business can act on to make better and faster decisions.
For data professionals, the place to be for hands-on learning this fall is the Microsoft Data Science Summit, Sept. 26‒27 in Atlanta.
At the Summit, you’ll learn how databases, big data and machine learning products can transform your business. Experts will demonstrate proven techniques for putting the latest technologies to work for you. Highlights include IoT-focused sessions such as “Unlock Real-Time Predictive Insights from the Internet of Things” and “Streaming Options on Azure: We’ve Got It All Covered.” You’ll hear from Microsoft engineers, customers sharing case studies, and see plenty of demos. And Joseph Sirosh, corporate vice president of the Data Group at Microsoft, will kick things off with a keynote address.
The summit is designed for team leaders and data professionals including data scientists, big data engineers, machine learning engineers and engineering managers. You’ll benefit from architectural guidance and immersive training to implement solutions at scale. Plenty of real-world examples will show how to apply machine learning and data science techniques to your business. Everything from artificial intelligence to open source technology is on the agenda — as well as ample opportunities to network with the experts.
Other summit highlights will include:
- Hands-on sessions with Cortana Intelligence Suite, SQL Server and Microsoft R
- Three tracks to choose from: Advanced Analytics, Big Data and Solutions
- Access to the Microsoft Ignite Expo hall
When you combine IoT technologies and advanced analytics, you open new possibilities and shift your business from being reactionary based on past events to being proactive with recommendations for future actions.
