Data Platform Summit 2018 witnessed a majestic success this August at Radisson Blu, Bangalore, India. This was the 4th edition of the conference that started way back in 2015. Feedback from audience this year, makes us believe that the 4th year has set new standards and benchmark in every aspect for an international learning summit. Compared to last three years, this year was at a different level altogether – 104 highly curated sessions were delivered by 57 speakers, with participation from 900+ delegates from 15 countries, making DPS 2018 a truly global event. The community had three very rewarding days, filled with interesting sessions, demos, presentations, discussions & lots of networking opportunities at every step. Not to forget, two days of Pre-Conference Trainings which featured 12 full-day deep dive classes, by International Experts.
Here are few links that have captured the best moments of the conference.

We would also like to thank everyone for the overwhelming feedback received.
The icing on the cake like always for DPS was its keynote address. Rohan Kumar’s keynote address and the completely filled Hydra, which is Radisson Blu’s massive hall, was beyond any words. DPS 2018 had three keynotes for three days. We would like to extend our gratitude to all our keynote speakers- Rohan Kumar (Corporate Vice President, Azure Data, Microsoft, USA), Mark Souza (General Manager, Cloud & Enterprise, Microsoft, USA) & Anand Raman (GM & Chief of Staff, AI CTO Office, Microsoft, USA) for their participation and support. It was a blessing for the Data & Analytics Community, that not just they, but their team also travelled all the way from Redmond to Bangalore. All the three keynote sessions featured intriguing demos on Microsoft Data Platforms, SQL Server and Artificial Intelligence. We thank DPS 2018 keynote speakers for their time.
Data Platform Summit 2018 had a star-studded lineup of expert speakers from Microsoft, MVP & MCM Community, Industry Veterans & Thought Leaders. We attribute the success of the Summit to our speakers who brought in the knowledge & expertise our audiences will cherish for years. We believe that our diverse and dynamic group of speakers provided in-depth insight, as well as, practical solutions and examples for all the topics featured in the Conference. Their attendance, participation, and thoughtful inputs made the Summit a true success.
DPS 2018 also played host to a Data & Analytics Leaders roundtable with Rohan Kumar & Anand Raman. The attendees included Industry Leaders and Veterans. It was a great exchange of ideas, strategies and initiatives of the Global Data & Analytics Community.
However, nothing about DPS would ever be complete without our delegates. We would like to thank each and every data & analytics professional who registered and came to DPS 2018. Their presence helped make this event a grand success and their enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together, both productive and fun. We are sure that the delegates were able to take advantage of all the learning opportunities and discussions throughout the conference.
A special note of appreciation for those who filled DPS 2018 conference & session feedbacks. These feedbacks will enable us to get a sense of what our delegates liked the most, as well as help to improve future conferences based on their suggestions.
Further, the Pre-Cons at Data Platform Summit were truly world-class. We thank all our Pre-Conference attendees and speakers for enthusiastically participating in the 12 classes.
We would particularly like to express our gratitude towards our Knowledge Partners & our Community Partners for their support towards the event.
And here we are. We hope you has as much fun being a part of the Conference, as we had crafting it all together.
Thank you for allowing us to share our passion and our conference with you. We hope to see you next year. Believe us, something seriously is brewing ? and you will get to know about it in few week’s time.
