Building an End-to-End Data Stack in Thirty Minutes

Benn Stancil Benn Stancil | Field CTO | ThoughtSpot

Data stacks - from launching data collection pipelines, provisioning data warehouses, developing ETL systems, and integrating data science and BI applications - used to take teams weeks and months to build. Today, using off-the-shelf tools, companies can set up this entire infrastructure in a matter of hours, all without needing specialist data engineers.

This talk will not only introduce the technology that makes this possible - it will also show how it can be done, in a live demo. During this talk, Benn will set up an end-to-end data stack, highlighting how any company can go from having little than a website to running automatic data pipelines, a scalable data warehouse, live dashboards, and a data science platform in under thirty minutes.
