Title: Big data is here. Now what?


By all accounts the era of Big Data is here and today’s challenge is for enterprises of all sizes to determine what opportunities exist as a result of this data explosion. There’s gold hidden in the massive mountains of data generated by their systems, their operations, their employees, their partners, and their customers. But what does this mean for today’s enterprise? How should they act on it – strategically and tactically? What are the opportunities and pitfalls for both Line of Business and IT executives?


This session will explore the opportunities that exist around Big Data as well as potential pitfalls for organizations as they begin to launch their own Information Optimization and Analytics projects. It will provide attendees with real-world examples of ways organizations are leveraging Big Data, and how to manage and analyze all forms of interaction and data – structured, semi-structured and unstructured.


The ability to extract real value from Big Data is the currency of business, but only if they are able to manage, understand and act on 100% of business relevant information. Hear how today’s leading companies are turning data into gold to drive revenues, close enterprise knowledge gaps and enhance their operations. Come learn about the new ROI – Return on Information.
