For the past five years the event has served as a remarkable knowledge-sharing and networking platform for data practitioners in the Nordics. This special 2021 online edition of the event goes beyond the Nordics and extends its reach to the
Middle East region as well. Streamed as two parallel stages through one platform, the delegates from both regions will
have the opportunity to follow regional presentations as if on an independent event, but also have the opportunity to hear
the other region presentations and network with all participants from the both regions. This setup provides personal regional
insights and benefits, as well as cross regional benchmarking and networking possibilities.

Three Days. Two Regions. One Event to
impact all.

The 2021 program of the Data 2030 Summit focuses on the most business critical Data Management challenges as well the latest methodologies, strategies and tools used by organizations to address those challenges. The program is divided in three days, each day focusing on a specific topic. 

Day 1 – Data Governance & Data Quality

Strategy and technical day focusing on ways of create an agile and modern data strategy with sustainable Governance and Data Quality as a prerequisite for enterprise grade integration of Advanced Analytics and AI -from ownership to implementation. The presentations are held in English and in duration of 30 minutes.

Day 2 – Cloud Enabled Modern Data Platform 

Strategy and technical day focusing on how organizations can manage
applications, assets and resources across traditional and multi-cloud
environments in ways that deliver visibility, automation and governance. The presentations are held in English and in duration of 30 minutes.

Day 3 – DataOps and Infrastructure as Code

Technical day focusing on techniques to applying agile, collaborative and user-friendly approach to building and managing Data Pipelines. The presentations are held in English
and in duration of 30 minutes.

Topic related Roundtables

During the main three days event, through the event app the delegates and partners will have the opportunity to join topic related roundtable
discussions moderated by experts and speakers. All roundtables are 45 min and can host in total 8 participants including the moderator. This small group setup incentivises deeper conversations and allows all participants to have an opportunity to share their thoughts on the area.

Regional Stages

The two regions, the Nordics and The
Middle East region, will have a dedicated stage with a schedule based on their regional time zone. At some point of the day the two stages meet for joined presentation or roundtable discussions. Delegates attending the event can also
participate or review the presentations of the other region as well network with all the participants at the summit.

Limited Edition

As with the past editions of the event, to maintain the networking and knowledge-sharing experience, the summit is limited to a maximum of 200 participants per region. Speakers and exhibitors are carefully prequalified and selected to match the current regional market challenges, and provide outstanding content and insights relevant to the participants attending.
