    Welcome to the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn, the ultimate California Wine Country destination oasis!

    Big data technologies and practices are moving quickly. Companies are now able to organize, analyze and derive value from millions of rows of data that, just a few years ago, would have been meaningless. But where is big data headed in 2016 and beyond?

    To stay ahead of the game, we have strategically crafted an agenda that incorporates Arrow, supplier and industry speakers to address the big data marketplace, emerging trends, and innovative solutions to help you capitalize on new opportunities and position your company for growth.

    Over the next few days, we encourage you to interact with fellow reseller professionals, as well as with the most influential and knowledgeable channel resources the industry has to offer. Our goal is to inspire new strategies around growth and transformation, as well as provide an understanding of how Arrow will support you along the way.

    We appreciate your business and partnership, and look forward to hosting you at Arrows Third Annual Big Data Symposium!

    Best regards

    Shannon McWilliams Director of Sales, Enterprise Software Group, North America Arrow Enterprise Computing Solutions

    WeatherHistorically, summers in Sonoma are warm and dry, while evenings are usually quite cool. Daily highs are expected to be in the mid- to upper-80s, cooling off to the mid-50s at night. These warm days, cool nights and lack of rain during the growing season is what makes for premium wine.
