Big Data London, the UK’s largest data and analytics event, was finally back on this year! What’s more – it was one of the first live, in-person industry events in what feels like eons!
With 100 exhibitors, 9 theaters, and 180 speakers, this was the place to be on the 22nd and 23rd of September 2021. Headliners stealing the spotlight included Snowflake, Confluence, and Domo to name a few. But the real heroes were each and everyone that attended!
Here are a few highlights from the event we wanted to share.
Snowflake: Why Data Cloud, Why Now
Snowflake, the premier cloud platform, explored how the Data Cloud is transforming the way organizations share and collaborate on data. With your data in the cloud, businesses can harness the additional performance, flexibility, and scalability to gain more value.
Confluence: The strategic importance of data in motion
Confluence, the leading platform for team collaboration and knowledge bases, shared their views on this extraordinary time period in our global history. All the rapid changes and innovations are driven by data, bringing the power of real-time data to the fore.
Astrato: RIP In-memory BI – Play the data where it lives
Astrato’s Alexander Thor also took to the stage to reveal more about the evolution of BI. Data is moving to the cloud and businesses need the enhanced capabilities of cloud BI to succeed. He also revealed more about the next step in the Vizlib journey – a live query solution for Snowflake’s Data Cloud, blending our best-in-class data visualization and analytics with Snowflake’s cloud agility and performance.
Thanks to all those that attended our Astrato talk and visited our stand! We love the feedback we received.
Jochem Zwienenberg, Senior Business Intelligence Consultant (SBIC) & Product Manager: Qlik at Victa BV, and Vizlib Legend, shared the following: “Great product, with great possibilities. I hope to get my hands on a version with brushing and linking soon!”
“Your new Astrato Analytics looks super slick and fast! Looking forward to getting our hands on it soon!” Mat Oram, CEO and Co-founder, AdviseInc.

Plus other positive comments that kept us smiling:
“Solves our existing reporting lag times.”
“Fantastically fast time to connect and visualise (either from Snowflake or Google Sheets), which usually takes much longer.”
“Easy to use, no learning curve or stumped users compared to Tableau. ”
