The Monsanto Enterprise Geospatial Platform | Monsanto
4:30 pm – 5:30 pm Danforth Theater
What data is available? Where is it? How do I access it? These are all common questions that data scientists and people in general across Monsanto face daily.
To address this problem, three teams within Monsanto IT, geospatial data assets (Location360), Data Platform, and Cloud Analytics (Science@Scale), partnered to build a world class and one of a kind full cloud and open source enabled geospatial platform and catalog. The result is a fully integrated solution for data processing, discovery, analytics, and visualization.

We have seen and talked to many first-timers that were told to come to Venture Cafe but seem lost, overwhelmed or just unsure who to talk to and where to start. This session is for those attending a Venture Cafe Gathering for the first, second or third times, to gather to:
(1) hear about the resources, opportunities and programming offered;
(2) have someone ask them about what they are looking to get by attending; and
(3) potential connect them to the right person or, at least, place them on the right path.
