Big Data is going to get a lot of focus next week at HP Discover, the premier conference of the world's largest technology company.
A couple weeks back, Dana Gardner wrote a great article on what to expect at the event. If you're the sort who likes to peek over the horizon, do visit the HP Labs section of the Expo - there is a LOT on offer.
If you are an active Tweeter on all things technology and would like to meet face to face with some of the brightest minds in the industry, do drop by the TweetUp party on Wednesday, June 6th. Details and invitation here.
And finally, if you are a bigdataholic like I am, you will be happy to know there are a number of venues to interact with industry leaders and HP experts on innovative ways to address the challenge and opportunity of Big Data.
