COVID-19 Message

In light of Government’s position on combating the COVID-19 outbreak, we made the decision to close the Knoware office from Monday 23 March and will be working remotely until further notice.

Our aim is for Knoware to continue to provide the best service we can, particularly across New Zealand government where we are already utilising our extensive hands-on experience and knowledge of data and systems in helping some agencies with COVID-19 related work.

We see ourselves as a logical extension of many analyst teams in the Wellington business community. The wider Knoware team of consultants are all set up to work remotely from home, and most clients are taking up this option especially where additional hands are required to assist in support activities. We do have some resource availability.

The Executive team are always available for you to contact. Details can be found here

We will be replacing face to face meetings with online technology. We’re utilising Microsoft Teams for this but happy to use other means if preferred.

Please be assured we will be here to provide whatever level of service we can for you.

Best wishes and stay safe.

Demystifying data management: data lakes, warehouses and vaults

Date: Tuesday 27th August 2019
4:30pm – 7pm

Location: Venue TBC, Wellington

Cost: FREE

In the good old days, things were pretty clear: we had Data Warehouses and everyone knew what to expect of them. These days things have got more complicated – we still have the Data Warehouses, but there are also Data Lakes and even Data Vaults and many people are asking how they differ and what is the best use for each.

In this presentation we will provide clear answers to those questions and advice on how to avoid ending up with a Data Swamp!

This presentation is not about right or wrong. In the difficult world of data management, it provides clarification for the avoidance of disappointment and false expectations.

Agenda:

4:30pm            Registration
5:00PM            Welcome and introduction
5:10pm            Speaker: Nataliya Alkhimova, Principal Consultant, Knoware
6:15pm            Informal discussion and networking
7:00pm            Event close

Nataliya has proven expertise delivering solutions that support evidence-based analytics. She draws on her experience in architecture, design, hands-on developer and technical coordination roles to provide organisations with thought leadership and technical guidance. She also mentors organisations in the effective application of Agile to analytics and BI.
