Data Platform Summit 2018 Testimonials


Subha Priya Ramadass, Director – Software Engineering

It was an enriching experience as almost all sessions had a working demo and real time example(s) to support the objective that was being driven. Presentations were done meticulously and had enough time for questions from the attendees. The magnitude of the summit was massive and great range of topics were covered. It was very well organized. One thing that the can be considered is to add is to bring in partners/stakeholders who got benefitted from these technologies to share their success stories. That would be a valuable testimonial, give vote of confidence for the participants and wrap the summit with more glory.

Great sessions and the DPS summit provided a wonderful opportunity for the Microsoft geeks cut across all levels be it a developer, architect, sales, technology specialist…

The sessions enabled direct access to the experts and also getting a sneak preview on the roadmap and latest offerings by Microsoft in one place. The in depth sessions, live demos, open-talks, chalk-talks format well received by our team and an opportunity to learn, collaborate and innovate to gather with Microsoft and the dps summit made it possible.

Great workshop! We made a right decision to send our team to the summit…

First time when I heard about DPS 2018 and only registered for pre-con workshops only however Mr. Amit Bansal convinced us to go for conference as well. Both workshop and summit were great. This workshop has given our team the tools to better identify opportunities to influence and persuade stake holders we work with to help grow overall business and reach our team goals.

Raja Ramachandran, Senior Solution Architect, Analytics, TCS

The content shared with us at the DPS summit was great – the organizing team took us through the entire architecture journey and the different styles of architecture available within Azure. Such an event would definitely be useful for someone who has just stepped into the role of an architect or tech lead

Sweta Rai, Solution Architect, Data & Analytics Solutions, TCS

DPS 2018 was a well-organized event, packed with exceptional speakers and insightful discussions. It was an excellent forum for learning and exchanging ideas. The sessions were very informative, with meaningful demos that gave us a good insight into various Microsoft technologies. The Open-Talk-and-Chalk sessions gave us an excellent opportunity to interact with SMEs directly. Hats off to the organizers for pulling off an event of this scale successfully!

DPS summit is a great opportunity for data professionals, We get to know about all the Microsoft’s data stack in one platform.

Thanks to all the speakers and Microsoft leadership for sharing experiences to the community.

Chandra Mohan Madugula, Senior Manager, Applications Delivery and Operational Excellence, Kennametal

The feedback from the Kennametal participants was really exceptional. Especially, the Business Analytics team members who were part of this Summit felt that it caters to the current needs of the team / organization. They were glad to compromise on other events of similar nature in order to attend this DPS Summit. We felt that we have done a right thing from the organization standpoint by expanding the initial planned team size to participate in this event from 1 to 4.

Prakash Palanisamy, Country Managing Director, Thorogood

I found the sessions very valuable – the presenters were experts and had the knowledge & passion for the technology. The event was very well organized, well done to your team. I have recommended this event to more people of ours and I am sure we will have a much bigger team from Thorogood next year

Data Platform Summit 2018 Team has really stepped up to deliver differentiated Delegate Experience on Knowledge and Skill. I must admit to say, Experience Speaks while Exposure Matters. Every track in the conference gave a indepth perspective and Open Sessions helped to interact in discussing the problems and finding solutions. Loved the knowledge of speakers and participants – it was productive.

I have been attending the DPS event for last 3 years and every year it is becoming better and better.

I want to congratulate the whole DPS team for organizing such a wonderful learning event this year. It was a break for myself and my team from our regular work and be part of this great learning experience. Learning new things about the Microsoft technologies, their new use cases, how AI and ML are helping the eco system to make it a better world. We got a chance to exchange our thoughts and build connect with the eminent speakers as well.

Overall great learning experience!! Look forward to attend another such event next year as well.

Biju P K, Technology Manager, ABB Corporate Development Centre

A great experience!…DPS 2018 Platform gives us an excellent opportunity to learn and get insights about new Microsoft Technologies and its industrial use cases.

Lot of interesting sessions and learnings, improved my overall understanding about AI knowledge, its possibilities and its industrial applications. Different sessions with multiple tracks gave very good flexibility in choosing the session based on our interests. Learnings from DPS 2018, helped me to kick start AI based internship projects for my organization. Me and my colleagues have enjoyed the sessions and request DPS to organize such sessions in the future as well. Thanks.

Arijit Sengupta, Sr. Manager – Database, Thomson Reuters

We always talk about scalable technology which is paramount to manage the exponential growth around us but the need of the hour is scalable learning which is needed to manage these scalable technologies. There is nothing better than community learning to share our knowledge and experience with other and in the process of doing so making learning scalable. Data Platform Summit is just doing that

Shrinivas Rawale, Delivery manager, Wolters Kluwer

This is the 2nd year when we sent our teams for the summit. The overall experience has been knowledge-enriching and the participants have expressed that this would help their product development work. The wide availability of topics selections was great and it meant the participants could choose the most relevant sessions. Looking forward to the next year’s event.
