Cloud Migration & Quick Start
Breakout Sessions 1
CUSTOMER TRACK | Customer Testimonial: How Aeroporti di Roma takes the passenger journey to new heights with the Talend Platform
Speaker: Pietro Caminiti, Head of IT Solutions, Aeroporti di Roma

With more than 43 million passengers every year, understanding and anticipating customer behaviors in the shortest possible time is as challenging as critical to constantly improve traveller’s experience and operation’s efficiency. In this session, find how and why ADR selected the Talend Platform to collect, connect, cleanse, and govern trusted data at speed to transform its passengers airport experience in an extra comfort journey.
SOLUTION TRACK | No AI without Trusted Data
Speaker: Ben Saunders, Lead Solutions Engineer, Talend

Today, many Data Science teams are choosing to leverage the power of MLaaS (Machine Learning as a Service) platforms on Azure, AWS and Google Cloud for developing and operationalising their AI and ML pipelines. There are huge advantages to working this way such as lower TCO, accelerated development and scalable cloud solutions. However, this migration to MLaaS platforms is not without its challenges. Firstly, Data Scientists still spend far too much of their valuable (and costly) time locating, preparing and cleansing data prior to modelling. Secondly, integrating new ML pipelines into existing applications (typically managed by different teams) can be difficult and often slow, meaning many companies struggle to achieve the desired ROI from AI initiuatives. This has led some companies to build entire teams to manage the operationalising and deployment of their ML pipelines using a process called MLOps.

In this session we demonstrate how Talend can be used to dramatically enhance a Data Scientist’s productivity by continually delivering high quality, trusted data to their MLaaS platform whilst also enabling a viable MLOps solution.
