Today, the analytic needs of most organizations are no longer met by the processes and tools of the data warehouse and data mart models of years and decades past. Data volumes are growing exponentially… data structures are frequently changing… new data sources are being born every day all over the world, and data reservoirs are being filled, that must be tapped. Organizations need a model to quickly access all of the data assets of a company and provision them to the analytics platform that is best suited for the analysis at hand. In this session, Steve Hirsch, chief data officer of InterContinentalExchange Group, the parent company of the NYSE, will talk about how his company has empowered their data scientists and eased the burden on IT through self-service data provisioning, generating significant efficiency gains and cost savings.
