Tamr leadership lays out vision for next-generation data management and unveils upcoming product roadmap:

Organizations of all sizes are plagued with long-standing issues caused by bad data. These data roadblocks slow or prevent meaningful digital transformations, prevent the discovery of key business insights, and have real costs in terms of time and money. Tamr believes that businesses will finally see what’s possible by delivering clean, curated, and holistic data for entities like customers, products, and suppliers.

  • Andy Palmer, Tamr’s CEO, kicks off DataMasters with “Data Mastering is the Key to the Data-driven Enterprise.” It’s a reality today that every business wants to become data-driven – and the last year and a half has made it an urgent necessity. But the expectations of modern enterprise data and the drag coefficient of legacy IT make it difficult. Andy makes the case why data mastering is the key to priming the pump of your modern data-driven enterprise and the catalyst for broad digital transformation, no matter where you are on the journey.
  • Anthony Deighton, Tamr’s Chief Product Officer, and Katie Porter, Sales Engineering Lead, team up to take attendees through Tamr’s product roadmap. This session will discuss the vision for Product at Tamr, recap major releases over the last 12 months, and preview product development plans for the year ahead.
  • Tamr co-founders’ Andy Palmer and Dr. Michael Stonebraker sit down for a can’t miss conversation about why internal IT needs to be dramatically restructured, how to plan for this change, which areas of data mastering are critical to future success, and hard-earned advice about establishing a data-driven culture.
