We hosted ElevateData’s Q3 2019 Dinner where we posed the question to the group – What is the Next (BIG) Data Technology? Our discussions covered a full spectrum of data technologies from ingestion to real time/batch processing to machine learning to privacy and security. We loved to hear unique perspectives from companies of all shapes and sizes on what each considered to be most valuable data technology innovation in the last few years – clearly shaped by different business goals and challenges. Some valued the scaling of relational databases while others were more focused on Machine Learning democratization technologies, data governance, and real time data streaming.
Equally exciting were the opinions shared around what’s to come in data technology disruption in the next few years. We had a lively discussion around technologies like. Data Robots, Serverless, Streaming databases, and the verticalization of SaaS and infrastructure.
For dessert, we ended with a fascinating discussion on how organizations like Earnest, SVB, Medallia and Poshmark have different frameworks for identifying the need for new data technologies, evaluating the age old question of build vs. buy, and then integrating it in their environment.
