The Virtual ThinkLab aims at bringing us together despite we're physically apart, enabling you to connect to other fellow Data Management enthusiasts who now more than ever share the same challenges: being that the pandemic with all its implications or the task of evangelising the power of Data.

Don't miss the fourth episode with the great speakers Vinay Simha from Philips and Susan Walsh, the Classification Guru. Vinay will cover the topic of MDM Roadmaps: Staying committed to your MDM Vision, and Susan will address The Dangers of Dirty data.

The 4th Virtual ThinkLab features a smaller audience, typically around 30-40, to enable interaction and more space given to Q&A. That way, the ThinkLab reduces the distance between you and the speakers.

Stay positive, keep learning, stay curious.
