For those who missed the event, here’s a quick recap of some of our most popular sessions.

Some of Our Favorite Sessions from the 2021 Hybrid Data Conference

Delivering on the Vision – Actian Hybrid Data Platform, presented by Emma McGrattan, Actian VP of Engineering

Emma McGrattan, Actian’s VP of Engineering gave an in-depth overview of how Actian products are delivering on the vision of hybrid cloud. Highlighting the Actian Data Platform, Emma showcased how Actian’s product portfolio is accelerating cloud adoption and changing the way customers advance along their cloud journey.

Actian on Google Cloud, Presented by Lak Lakshmanan, Google’s Director of Analytics

This brief 15 minute session presented by Lak Lakshmanan, Google’s Director of Analytics and AI Solutions, is a great intro in why Actian has chosen Google as our preferred cloud. We all love a better together story, but Lak shows provides a glimpse from the cloud provider perspective.

Of course, no conference would be complete without perspectives from our customers. Actian would like to thank all of the customers and partners that made the 2021 Hybrid Data Conference a success.
