The BIWA User Community and Oracle Spatial & Graph SIG have been busy at work revamping our flagship event for you! We’ve renamed/rebranded the conference, moved it to a different date, and modified speaking tracks and topics to reflect our expanded focus.

The news about changes for the Analytics and Data Summit continues this month, with new BIWA Board and event committee appointments listed below.

Don’t hesitate to reply to this email if you have questions, additional suggestions, or want to sponsor or volunteer.

And, most importantly, we hope you enjoy this busy holiday season with your loved ones!

Thanks – and Happy Holidays,
The Analytics and Data Summit Conference Committee

Speaker Deadline Extended to Friday, December 22, 2017!

The Analytics and Data Summit team is seeking speaking applications related to the following topics: adaptive intelligence; analytics; big data; cloud; data warehousing; data integration and governance (ETL); Internet of Things (IoT); spatial and graph; machine learning; and “anything else ‘cool’ using these Oracle technologies in ‘novel and interesting’ ways.”

Proposals that cover multiple areas are acceptable and highly encouraged. The content committee strongly encourages technical/how-to sessions, strategic guidance sessions, and real-world customer case studies, all using Oracle technologies.

Primary speakers receive a free pass to the event!

To reflect the later conference date, the content submission deadline is now Friday, December 22, 2017.

Submission guidelines and forms are available here.
