Learn how to

Win Big with Data

A warm greetings to all big data practitioners and Vertica enthusiasts,

I’m delighted to say that our Virtual Vertica Big Data Conference 2020 was an enormous success! Despite the challenges that COVID19 has presented to us all, we were able to host 20 fully virtual sessions led by leading big data industry experts and Vertica engineers. Now, you can find all the recorded sessions here, along with the follow-up Q&As, and experience for yourself how major innovators unlock the potential of data.

These sessions describe many ways you can apply new techniques to your own analytics initiatives. You can also learn about the latest improvements and additions to the Vertica Analytics Platform and solutions ecosystem.

Thank you for making this 2-day event such an exciting virtual adventure! Our next Vertica Big Data Conference is already scheduled for March 29-April 1, 2021, at the Encore Boston Harbor Hotel, and I look forward to meeting you then, in person.
