With great pride, we take this opportunity to share with you, yet another successful execution of the signature event on Azure Data, Analytics, and AI – Data Platform Virtual Summit 2021.
DPS 2021 lived up to the monumental expectations placed upon it and most certainly delivered as promised.
Packed with 12 Training Classes, 25+ Gurukuls, 130+ General Sessions – including formats such as Deep-Dives, Short-Dives, Demos & Breakouts, the overall event facilitated learning and networking for 7K data professionals from 94 countries. Special thanks to Microsoft, Redgate, PURE Storage, CDATA, MLPA & SQLMaestros for sponsoring the event.
DPS 2021 kicked off on the 8th of September, bringing you two consecutive days of Pre-Cons (training classes), delivered by seasoned trainers from the industry. Following up Pre-Cons, the Summit spanned from 13th to the 16th of September, offering curated content across several tracks including Architecture, Data Administration, Data Development, Advanced Analytics, Data Science, and the newly introduced Industry Solutions.
Multiple delivery formats were set up on the virtual platform including the popular Breakouts and the innovative ones like Deep-Dives, Short-Drives & Demo-Only sessions. Gurukuls were a huge hit that provided a networking opportunity with the Speakers via open discussions. At the Gurukuls, delegates discussed their project challenges & possible solutions with Microsoft Product Teams and industry experts. Overall, DPS 2021 was one of the most interactive and versatile events of its kind.
This year’s keynote – SQL Edge to Cloud – featured Microsoft Veterans – Bob Ward, Anna Hoffman, and Buck Woody. With in-depth knowledge and decades of experience in the world of SQL, they provided insightful wisdom on how to get ahead of the curve by understanding the immense possibilities with the modern SQL data platform and the right “flavor” of SQL suited to your specific needs.
DPS 2021 entered its final stage with the Post-Cons on the 20th and 21st of September. Post-Cons, just like the Pre-Cons offered deep-dive content in form of 8-hour virtual classes by the world’s best educators.
DPS 2021 also featured WIT & DEI panel discussions.
A massive shout-out to the Speakers, Sponsors, delegates & the DPS Team for making the event possible.
