Knowledge Gap goes online in 2020, will get physical in 2021

Posted 27/3/2020

We were all looking forward to meeting in a traditional Munich beergarden in May of this year. Unfortunately, it’s still not clear how long the coronavirus situation and the associated restrictions will last. Since we have speakers and participants from all over the world that still might not be able to travel to Germany in May, the Knowledge Gap Spring 2020 data modeling & data architecture conference will have to take place online.

This means that instead of attending a physical training day, we recommend to use the online offers of our trainers:

The main conference will take place in a videoconferencing tool with some slight changes in the program to adapt for the non-European time zones of some of the speakers.

However, these changes also have two important upsides:

  • Since we are not limited by room size anymore, there are places available for the main conference again (with a 50 % discount compared to the original price). Please register here.
  • Since we don’t want to deprive anyone of the Munich beergarden experience, there will be a physical Knowledge Gap conference here in Munich in Spring of 2021, most likely from the 19th to the 21st of May.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We’ll also contact everybody who has already registered directly within the next few days to help them adjust their plans.

Banian supports Knowledge Gap; main conference sold out

Posted 27/2/2020

We’re happy to make two additional announcements.

Announcement #1: There’s another valuable addition to our sponsor pool: Banian, a data-focused consulting company from Switzerland with a lot of data vault and data warehouse automation expertise, will support the Knowledge Gap data modeling & data architecture conference as a 4NF sponsor. Dominik Imark, Banian’s founder and CEO, will also speak at the main conference. We’re looking forward to his talk on modeling the data-driven enterprise.

Announcement #2: Almost three months before it’s scheduled to begin, the main conference is sold out. Thanks to everyone who will participate as a speaker, sponsor or regular attendee! If you want to take part in the Knowledge Gap but haven’t registered yet, there’s still the possibility to come to our training day on Monday, the 18th of May.

Please contact us if you have any questions or want to be put on the waiting list for the main conference.

Ready for graph data modeling?

Posted 14/2/2020

We’re glad to have won veteran data modeler and prolific author Thomas Frisendal not only as a speaker for the main conference (he will speak about Time and Time Again) but also as a teacher. On the Knowledge Gap pre-conference training day, he will lead a one-day course on graph data modeling with Neo4j.

In case you still haven’t signed up for the training, Thomas has prepared a quick self-assessment test that will help you with your decision:

  • If you get fewer than 96 points on the test, you definitely should come to the training to improve your graph data modeling knowledge.
  • If you get 96 points on the test, you’re so deep into graph data modeling already that not coming isn’t really an option anymore.

New sponsor Solita confirms data automation and cloud DWH focus

Posted 12/2/2020

We’re happy to announce that Finnish consulting company Solita, an important North European player with a growing presence in Munich, will support the Knowledge Gap data modeling & data architecture conference as a 4NF sponsor.

Solita fit nicely both with our technical focus topics (data automation and cloud data warehousing) and with the rest of the sponsors: Like In516ht and Datavault Builder, they offer a modern automation tool. And like In516ht, Alligator Company and b.telligent, they are part of cloud DWH platform Snowflake’s European partner ecosystem.

Because the main conference is almost sold out, we’re running out of 4NF and 5NF sponsoring slots. If you’re interested in becoming a sponsor yourself, it might be a good idea to contact us soon.
