Very well planned, smooth scheduling, and really enjoyed using the DATAVERSITY mobile application.
Very well organized. Good mix of topics - Data Quality, Governance, Technical/Business.
A great mix of topics, like the way vendor pitches are "outlawed." Also, like intro vs. intermediate designation to allow for a wise choice of sessions.
I still say it's the best conference I've attended in the last 10 years. The content is timely and actionable, and it's the best place to connect with the industry experts who have practical knowledge.
I came to learn about starting up a Data Governance program and have received more than I expected
The most non-commercial data conference I've been to - it's data people talking to data people about their issues, solutions, and experiences.
