How are applications reviewed and scored?

First and foremost, the committee looks for a well-written and comprehensive application. The presentation should be an educational opportunity for the audience, not a sales pitch. Additional considerations include if the presentation:
  • Is based on customer experiences (i.e. first-hand, real-life usage of Teradata or open-source technology) that demonstrate strong leadership in meeting today’s complex data and analytic challenges.
  • Outlines a problem/opportunity, addresses the solution/action taken, and quantifies the value to the company. A successful presentation focuses on a customer success story that articulates the issue being  addressed and shares details on how success is achieved, with an explanation of the business driver and ultimately the direct impact to the business. This can include how the initiative gained consensus within the company.
  • Offers actionable information that attendees can take back with them and begin applying immediately.
  • Is conceptual yet still grounded in real-world examples that showcase possible applications to attendees’ current business.
  • Brings a unique perspective or showcases technology trends/futures and innovations that are changing the face of business.
  • Introduces new topics, products, or solutions.
  • Provides new information on how to leverage data analytic solutions.

What topics are we looking for?

We are looking for a wide variety of interesting, thought-provoking, and cutting-edge topics pertinent to today’s environment that are clearly relevant to customers and prospects.

Speakers are encouraged to submit on any topic.
