The Premier Event for Data & Analytics Executives

Thank you for joining us at CDAO Melbourne!

With over 350 attendees at the gorgeous Melbourne Park Hyatt hotel, CDAO Melbourne did not disappoint. It was an enlightening three days following the data journey from data governance and establishing the data infrastructure, right through to gleaning insights at the other end with the latest tools and technology.

A huge thank you to all of our speakers and partners for their commitment to the program! Needless to say our international speakers, Faran Baluch, Senior Data Scientist at Netflix and Kapil Gupta, Data Science Leader at AirBnB Inc USA did not disappoint. The audience valued the insight into their technology stacks and how to build an infrastructure to support tomorrow's innovations.
