Why Data and Database Professionals Own the Future
Level: 100
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’re probably aware of a new computing paradigm called cloud computing. Cloud computing has a variety of advantages over traditional in-house computing and, in many cases, is commoditizing certain IT jobs. But not all IT jobs, especially those that administrate, analyze, and interpret data. In fact, now more than ever, the most exciting trend in the IT industry is our data-driven future. This session will delve into the macroeconomic trends driving this new paradigm and discuss three stories that give us deeper insight into why data and database professionals own the future. Share insights and inspirations in this talk with Kevin Kline, a founder and president emeritus of the Professional Association for SQL Server, to discover the broader trends that are pushing data professionals into greater prominence and strategies you can use to become the most respected, influential, and credible member of your organization’s technical staff. 

Summary: This session inspires and motivates database and business intelligence professionals, to take their career to a higher level of performance and achievement by further highlighting their growing role in a world that values data-driven insight.
