How to Accelerate Your Cloud Data Architecture Roadmap
Presented by: John O’Brien
Presentation Info:
As companies transition to cloud-based or hybrid data and analytics architectures, the overwhelming amount of change requires a strategy and roadmap to achieve key milestones.
As architects with on-premise data environments choose a strategy to re-platform or refactor data architecture for the cloud, they need to understand principles for cloud-native architecture, serverless functions, and automation for new data pipelines and databases. Building a roadmap for cloud-based data and analytics requires new ways of thinking about platforms and pipelines with services to fully leverage the value the cloud has to offer.
This is a condensed version of the recent presentation given at Enterprise Data World 2021.

Building a Serverless Data Warehouse
Presented by: Zeke Bishop
Presentation Info:
Every organization, small or large experiences data sprawl and is challenged with ingesting real-time and distributed data from multiple key business systems. These issues coupled with the demands of internet-scale applications drove the need for a distributed messaging system and gave rise to an architectural pattern of using data pipelines to achieve resilient, real-time systems that enabled population of the enterprise data warehouse. As a result, understanding how to publish real-time data to a distributed messaging system, then how to build a data pipeline and interact with the data warehouse are crucial skills for developers, data scientists and architects alike.  This session will utilize Google Cloud resources to deliver on the promise of ingesting and presenting real-time data from an enterprise data warehouse.
What you will learn:
  • How to use Google Pub/Sub (real-time messaging service)
  • How deploy a Google Cloud Function (serverless functions)
  • How to leverage Google BigQuery (fully managed, petabyte-scale analytics data warehouse)
  • How to create a dashboard using Google Data Studio (free tool that turns your data into informative, easy to read, easy to share, and fully customizable dashboards and reports)
What you will need:
A Google Cloud Platform account.
