Trends and Data – Notes from Strata NYC 2011

I’ve attended the Strata conference in NYC last week. Its been many years since I’ve last attended a conference without presenting in it. I decided to attend the conference since it is considered the foremost data science conference. And I was very much interested in what those data scientists are up to. I share some of it here.

On Your Marks, Get Set …..

This is my first Oracle OpenWorld in a few years. I have not changed (I don’t think), but the show must have grown significantly. With the huge number of acquisitions over the past few years, I am sure I will not recognize some of the solutions mentioned in many presentation billboards as I pass through all the conference venues.

I should say that it was one of the best audiences I have presented for over the last few months! I received several good questions and we have a very good follow up discussion.
