Actian Hybrid Data Conference 2017

You are cordially invited to Actian’s Hybrid Data Conference in central London, UK on November 9th, 2017. Unlike many tech conferences, this one is totally free, and is open to Actian Customers, Partners, and the broader Tech Community alike. Bring a friend, or bring a few friends, this is a great technology community networking event and you won’t want to miss out.

The keynote speaker is Matt Aslett, from 451 Research. Matt will be discussing the Inevitability of Hybrid Data Management. “From cars to the cloud, the concept of hybrid is everywhere and is rapidly growing in momentum. What appears to be a choice today will soon become an inevitability. The same is true of hybrid data management, as the need for greater business agility mandates that enterprises rethink their traditional approaches to data management.”

There is also a fantastic lineup of Actian, Actian Customer, and Actian Partner technical speakers with talks covering the advances, breakthroughs, and applications of Data Analytics, Data Management, Data Integration, Graph, IOT Embedded systems, and more. This is a conference hosted by Data Professionals, for Data Professionals.

Remember, this is London, and it is quite possible that you could experience four seasons in one day. It’s just how things are on a big island in the Northern Hemisphere. Check the latest weather forecast, and pack accordingly. Conference rooms always tend to be on the cool side, so bring a comfy jumper in your briefcase, just in case the venue is a tad chilly.

Travel in and around London is easier than you think, and there is a fantastic transport system. Rather than driving in, your best bet is to catch a river-bus, bus, or train, and connect via the London Underground tube system to get to Charing Cross station, or catch a taxi if you are not too far. The Transport for London website has all the latest transport information you will need to plan your journey.
