Today, data is a powerful asset for any organization. Data is literally everywhere and it is growing exponentially: 500 million tweets or 294 billion emails per day, 65 billion messages on WhatsApp, etc. This high volume, combined with the variety of sources (i.e., structured, unstructured, etc.) and the velocity or pace of the data generation brings multiple opportunities for value creation. You won’t be surprised to learn it also brings about some challenges such as data collection, storage, analysis and most importantly, integration.

A properly designed data integration process is THE key step to combine different data sources by adapting their format, fields and the way they are consumed. For this to happen, ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) tools are a simple and scalable solution. During this workshop, expert Adrian Gonzalez-Sanchez will provide you with a proper understanding of the data-driven value creation process, the main data integration techniques and tools, and how to design a solid and scalable ETL workflow. Intrigued? We’d be surprised if you weren’t.
