Sometime in 2014, Alberta was in the early stages of the worst recession it had seen in decades, which made being out of work in Alberta a remarkably challenging place to be; traditional industries underpinning the economy faced, and continue to face, threats both from outside and inside interests.
In the depths of this economic turmoil, DMC began delivering high-value Data Conferences in Edmonton in 2015, focused on delivering content with real educational value, helping our colleagues in the industry build their professional capital, strengthen their network, create opportunity and get back to work. We strongly believe that no other Canadian Conference brings the caliber and expertise of the speakers nor the quality of content that DMC does. Like you, DMC's leadership team are active practitioners in our industries of focus in Canada.
For us, our Purpose is clear - to support Albertans and Canadians learn, build their professional network, build professional accreditation, and create opportunity for meaningful work. To drive innovation and diversification in Alberta and Canada in today's emerging Data technologies.
Following its success delivering high-value events in Edmonton, DMC established an industry-leading data conference in Calgary in 2017. Since our inception, DMC's purpose has been to provide a supportive and constructive platform to bring the Alberta Tech community together, get students and the unemployed (both of whom attend for a deep discount) mixing with those with resource needs and maximize educational value by bringing content and speakers of a caliber not seen previously in any conference in Canada. Look at our Previous Events section for more information.
DMC is committed to driving growth in Alberta's - and Canada's - Data, Analytics, AI/ML, Security and Information Technology sector by developing, through the delivering the best content, practical and applicable knowledge to our Information Workers, helping them build strength in their network in order to foster the creation of opportunity and grow knowledge-driven innovation.
In 2017, DMC’s Wade Walker and Kewal Dhariwal founded the William (Bill) Inmon Scholarship for Excellence in Business & Data Analytics for the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary, in support of students in the BANA (Business Analytics) Program at the University of Calgary.
DMC contributes $2500 annually to this Scholarship in support of our next generation of leaders in Data. Consider joining us in supporting this cause by donating to this University of Calgary Scholarship by clicking HERE!
