Ms. Walker, Director of Salient's Data Analytics Center of Excellence, is a recognized industry leader in information sharing and business intelligence. She has participated in the EDW (and its predecessor forums) over the past 25 years sharing experiences on data strategies in today's enterprises. She will be on hand to discuss the exciting developments in the emerging field of semantics and the tremendous potential semantics offer to enhance business agility. She will point out how traditional data management approaches lack sufficient ability or flexibility to enable organizations to quickly sense, analyze, and adapt. By learning about practical semantic approaches, customers can accelerate the integration and use of data to significantly reduce costs and improve agility and responsiveness.

"The topic is vital because organizations cannot survive if they are not agile. The current state of data management limits the level of agility that organizations can achieve," says Ms. Walker. "It is essential to combine semantic approaches and technology with mature data management disciplines to enable rapid ingestion of new data to gain valuable insights that fuels sound, decisive actions and improved business outcomes."

EDW is the world's most comprehensive vendor-neutral educational event on data and information management where over 120 data experts speak and over 800 Business and IT professionals are expected to attend. The event will be held at the Renaissance in Austin, TX April 27- May 1, 2014. To learn more about the conference visit www.enterprisedataworld.com.
