3 Reasons to Attend Big Data London

September 15, 2021

There’s a tradeshow on my calendar next week. And there’s not a Zoom link in sight. Virtual conferences have made a huge impact in the past year, and I’m glad to see them continue, but right now, I’m thrilled to see the return of an in-person event: Big Data London.

In the words of the organizers, Big Data LDN (London) is the UK’s largest free-to-attend data & analytics conference and exhibition, hosting leading data and analytics experts, ready to arm you with the tools to deliver your most effective data-driven strategy.

Data-driven strategies are more important than ever, as more businesses of all sizes across the globe turn to data to inform initiatives across the business. Further, more individuals of all backgrounds are involved in data management. This democratization of data calls for new approaches, and Trifacta’s data engineering cloud enables data professionals to do just that.

Trifacta is proud to sponsor Big Data London, and we think there are at least three good reasons you should attend. 

1.) Hear how SPAR International turned their data into a competitive advantage
22 September at 12:45 pm in the DataOps Theatre

SPAR is one of the world’s largest food retailers operating more than 13,000 stores in 48 countries across the globe. To understand sales trends, market conditions, and the performance of different promotions, SPAR relies on data shared by their retailers and their own ability to analyze that data. You can imagine this isn’t easy!

Comparing data across their vast network of retailers means that SPAR’s analytics team has to standardize data across different languages, currencies, formats, and product hierarchies. Talk about a data wrangling challenge!

Join this session to learn how SPAR utilizes Trifacta’s Data Engineering Cloud to turn this massive data headache into a competitive advantage for their business. SPAR’s Business Data Analyst, Dharshini Manoharan, will dig into the following topics:

  • How SPAR created a strategy to turn data bottlenecks into analytic opportunities
  • What technology, people, and process components were required for success
  • Who utilizes data preparation within SPAR and where it fits in their tech stack
  • How the proper utilization of the tool helps to speed up the process

2.) Join us for Data Drinks and Hors d’oeuvres
