“Big data is a popular term used to describe the exponential growth and availability of data, both structured and unstructured. And big data may be as important to business – and society – as the Internet has become. Why? More data may lead to more accurate analyses.”  This definition is one of many put forth by the IT industry, all roughly in this vein.  Fundamentally there are increasing sources of digital data that has become available for analysis.  How can your business benefit by implementing a Big Data solution? Or how can you participate in this expanding market place of Big Data.

Our panel will shed light on this growing phenomenon.

  •  Why should we care about Big Data and Analytics?
  •  What does it mean to our businesses?  Both in its implementation or our ability to participate as an IT provider.
  • What are the obstacles to success?
  • What are the new areas still to be developed? i.e.  What’s coming down the pipe.
