In a world where the lines between infrastructure and data have become less defined, where does data fit? How do data center professionals think more about the data than they have before? In this keynote, Karen Lopez discusses the role of data in an enterprise. What does it mean to be on Team Data? Who are the data decision-makers? Who sees data as a necessary evil and who loves data? How do you spot a data evangelist in the wild? How do you talk to them or win them over? Should we manage configuration data the same way we manage business data? Should we manage it the same way we manage code? Is there a difference between software-defined and data defined? As a career data evangelist, Karen offers her insights, rants,
and raves about data and technology.
