In case you missed it (and we hope you didn’t!), Data Analytics Week at Pure//Accelerate™ Digital just wrapped up. Register to tune into our replays and on-demand content, then make sure you tune in live next week for great business applications content.

Analytics is building in importance as organizations collect more data. The rapid pace of innovation in modern applications and data delivery is enabling organizations to unlock and harness the value of their data. Even massive, ever-increasing amounts of unstructured data. New insights from modern data analytics are helping organizations drive greater operational efficiency, better customer experiences, and faster product and service development.

Pure Storage® is taking advantage of these same developments. Data is changing the way we do things to deliver better experiences for you, our customers. It’s also enabling us to help you achieve your own breakthroughs with innovative solutions to store and deliver analytics data.

Let’s look at some of the highlights from the week:

  • In “Data. The Catalyst of a Successful Customer Experience,” a panel of Pure experts shared how we leverage data to drive better experiences not only for our customers but also for our employees.
  • “Building for Tomorrow: Simplifying Infrastructure for Modern Analytics and Unstructured Data” focused on how a unified fast file and object (UFFO) platform delivers the scale, performance, and agility you need for modern analytics.
