Every organization is handling data in one way or another, but today’s data tools and infrastructure continue to hinder an organization’s ability to make data accessible to less technical users. In this keynote, Ashish Thusoo, CEO and co-founder of Qubole, will discuss the gaps in organizations’ data ambitions and ability to execute.

He will cover the gap between an organization’s ability to operationalize the infrastructure needed to support ubiquitous access to data, specifically regarding administrative expertise of data systems, the ability to predict capacity and to centrally monitor and govern usage. In order to address this, Ashish will discuss how cloud platforms can offer the elasticity, automation and access planes to alleviate these issues and provide a more accessible data platform.

Additionally, despite a new class of user-friendly tools, there is still a gap between a company’s ability to make data accessible throughout throughout the organization. To truly bridge this gap, Ashish will offer strategies on how developers can take a verticalized approach to building applications on top of data so that users can benefit from easy-to-use visualizations and other tools.
