LACO’s top 3 don’t miss ‘em dataMinds presentations


Choosing between the plenty presentation on the dataMinds Connect agenda? That isn’t easy! Check out our 3 tips:

  1. Using the newest innovative technology components is always a good way to go. But these days it is even more important to have an understandable, documented and well governed data platform. Therefore we at LACO will closely follow the session ‘Building trust in your data. Why data governance is the key to success.’ It is held in the plenary hall at 15h30 by Johan Ludvig Brattas and Marthe Moengen. We are guessing it will be a real eye-opener.
  2. The session ‘Synapse vs Databricks. which road to take?’ is a topic which is definitely worth your time to check out. Today it is on the mind of several big decision makers. Ivana Pejeva will help us define the best roadmap at 13h.
  3. Taking into account the digital acceleration which is happening, partly fueled by the COVID circumstances. We should certainly not forget that we can all contribute to a better society. The session ‘A multi-tenant smart city data platform’ by Lothar Verledens (13h), which takes a look at modern smart city data platforms used by multiple cities in Belgium, will not disappoint!
