Dell EMC The Source #99 – Disney Data and Analytics Conference – Big Bad Data

Big Bad Data meets Wickedly Good Analytics, that’s the theme of #DDAC17 the Disney Data and Analytics Conference.

Dell EMC, along with our partner Nvidia, sponsored the conference and spent most of our time talking with customers about the challenges of Big Bad Data. The Dell EMC Booth focused on the entire solutions track from Pivotal Application Development and Analytics to 14G PowerEdge Servers optimized for intensive data process and Dell EMC Isilon as the backend repository for massive amounts of data.

I spent some time with Dan Baskette (@DBBaskette), Technical Marketing Manager Pivotal, April Berman, PowerEdge Acceleration and Memory, and Thomas Burns, CTO Dell EMC Media and Entertainment Division.
