Register to attend one or all of the sessions or to receive the follow-up email with links to the slides and recordings.

Session 1: Data Virtualization and Data Integration – Building a Modern Enterprise Data Architecture

Gartner projects that by 2022, 60% of all organizations will implement data virtualization as one key delivery style in their data integration architecture.  Denodo was recently named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Integration Tools and named the Best Data Virtualization Solution in DBTA’s 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards. Data virtualization provides a logical data layer that integrates all enterprise data siloed across disparate systems both on-premise and in the cloud, manages the unified data for centralized security and governance, and delivers it to business users in real-time.

Attend this session to learn and see demonstrated:

  • What data virtualization really is and how it works
  • How it differs from other enterprise data integration technologies
  • How you build and access the data virtualization layer to support a modern Data Architecture

Session 2: Increase API Quality and Consistency with Model-Driven API Generation

According to Gartner, APIs are the basis for every digital strategy. With application architectures becoming increasingly distributed and modular, and with the proliferation of microservices, it is critical to ensure the quality and consistency of APIs.

In this session, you’ll see how NoSQL schema designs based on access patterns can be converted into full API specifications with a few mouse clicks, to serve as a basis for API-driven development.  A customizable API template lets users control the output configuration and create APIs that customers and developers will love.

Data professionals who design and manage Snowflake data warehouses can use ER/Studio to capture organizational requirements, translate requirements into design, and deploy the design to Snowflake.

Join IDERA for a demonstration on how ER/Studio’s comprehensive support for Snowflake provides better visibility and easier updates to data structures. This includes:

  • Forward and reverse engineering with data definition language (DDL) code
  • Compare and merge capabilities with ALTER script generation
  • Access to tables, views, columns, and constraints
  • Table persistence and clustering keys
  • Support for Snowflake features: Procedures, functions, materialized views, sequences, users, roles, and schemas
