TigerGraph, provider of the leading graph analytics platform, today announced Graph + AI Summit 2021, the first and only open industry conference devoted to democratizing and accelerating analytics, AI and machine learning with graph algorithms.
Digital transformation, particularly during 2020, has accelerated an across-the-board enterprise move to the cloud. As transactional and analytical workloads have moved to the cloud, graph technologies play a key role in connecting, analyzing and learning from data, both on-premises and in the cloud. In fact, when it comes to graph, it’s not “if” but “when.” Mark Beyer, Distinguished VP Analyst with Gartner, noted the following in a report on the adoption of graph technology in the enterprise: “To Graph or Not to Graph? That Is Not the Question — You Will Graph.” 1
The Graph + AI Summit,focused on accelerating analytics, AI, and machine learning with graph algorithms, will return as a virtual conference on April 21-22, 2021. This latest event comes after the inaugural Graph + AI 2020, which attracted more than 3,000 attendees from 56 countries. Data scientists, data engineers, architects, and business and IT executives from 115 of the Fortune 500 companies participated in the last event. Speakers from UnitedHealth Group, Intel, Dell, Jaguar Land Rover, Intuit, AT&T, Xandr, Scotiabank, Accenture, KPMG, Publicis Sapient, and Xilinx, along with many innovative startups, shared how their organizations benefited from graph. The Graph + AI 2021 roster will feature many of these thought leaders along with new speakers from the world’s largest banks, retailers and fintechs.
Harry Powell, Director of Data and Analytics at Jaguar Land Rover, will deliver the keynote for Graph + AI Summit 2021. Jaguar Land Rover has accelerated query times across their complex supply chain model from three weeks to 45 minutes, reduced their supplier risk by 35 percent, and delivered three times the business value from their data. Noel Yuhanna, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester, will join Harry for the Graph + AI 2021 keynote to discuss how organizations of all sizes are driving business outcomes with graph data platforms.
