Big Data is becoming a big deal! It is like air -- You may not be aware of it, but it's permeating everywhere, impacting all aspects of your work and life. Do you work in the following industries, and know how Big Data has been transforming them: High tech, Financial, Telecommunications, Retail, Biotech, Healthcare, Marketing, Intelligence and home land security... Do you use the following services for quality of life, and know how Big Data has been a key technology enabler: social networking, gaming, online recommendation of shopping, movie, travel, and apps... In this age of information explosion, a company doesn't need to be a Fortune 500 to own and monetize from terabytes or petabytes of data; an individual doesn't need to be a Big Data professional to enjoy its benefits at work and in life. Join us in this NECINA's first ever Big Data conference, where a group of remarkable speakers and panelists will cover:
The exciting opportunities and new business models leveraging Big Data
The new tools purpose built for Big Data
The challenges and solutions in Big Data use cases
No background in Big Data is needed for you to enjoy the talks and panel discussion. You will also have the opportunity to network with the speakers, panelists and attendees, discussing how Big Data is impacting your career and life.
Jo Tango, Leading investor in Big Data and other areas: "A great conference to address one of the major waves affecting technology today."
Mike Stonebraker, Founding father and industry luminary in relational databases: "This is a very interesting program on Big Data for students and technologists to attend."
