When an organisation migrates to a modern data platform, they benefit from a myriad of new capabilities and possibilities. As development rapidly expands, a complex and rich ecosystem emerges, but an unexpected consequence can be rising costs, difficulties in maintaining performance levels across the organisation, and impaired visibility and governance.

To make the most of a best-in-class data platform, tech leaders can benefit from little-known insights into how to optimise tasks, free up capacity and troubleshoot issues faster. But the route to optimisation is not always clear.

In this session, we bring together leaders facing these common challenges. Over the course of the evening, we’ll offer up actionable ways to master monitoring and governance and to bring about big business benefits - for both employees and the bottom line.

To support Nimbus Ninety members on their optimisation journey, we are hosting an event on the evening of Thursday 31 March in partnership with Unravel Data and Databricks.
