Capitalizing on Big Data Disruption

It’s no longer just the sexy Silicon Valley Social Media, Ride Sharing, AdTech, FinTech, and Gaming companies who are gathering massive amounts of data. Virtually every company in every industry has massive amounts of data stored in every possible incarnation of a data repository. We are now facing a very critical fork in the industry road ahead. The data itself is nothing more than a hefty cost center and a serious liability in the age of data breeches and regulations like GDPR. The right path is to focus on turning that liability into the most highly valuable asset your company has.

That data represents a market-disrupting opportunity for your business. But with seemingly endless commercial, open source, and “as-a-service” offerings hitting the market each week, how do you choose the right mix of technologies and avoid creating an accidental architecture that will limit you from future innovation? Most importantly, how can you actually achieve the promised bottom-line benefits from Big Data initiatives? Preferably before your competitors.

Join us for this session to understand how your organization can adopt an effective and agile approach to Big Data analytics, while focusing on the analytical use cases that will deliver a bottom-line and competitive impact.
