About O'Reilly

O'Reilly is followed by venture capitalists, business analysts, news pundits, tech journalists, and thought leaders because we have a knack for knowing what's important now and what will be important next—and the ability to articulate the seminal narratives about emerging and game-changing technologies.

We don't say this to brag. We say it to make a point: we're not easily hypnotized by hype. We've seen the bubbles build and burst. For over three decades, we've been tapping into a deep network of alpha geeks and thought leaders to recognize the truly disruptive technologies amidst the fluff. So when we invest in a conference, we're not just following the hype, we're committed to creating a community around an issue we believe is transformative.

At O'Reilly, we think big data is not just important. We think it's a game changer.

That's why we created Strata.

O'Reilly's conferences forge new ties between industry leaders, raise awareness of technology issues we think are interesting and important, and crystallize the critical issues around emerging technologies. Understanding these emerging technologies—and how they will transform the way we do business—has never been more crucial. If you want to understand the challenges and opportunities wrought by big data, you'll want to attend Strata.
