McLean, VA (PRWEB) September 27, 2012
Clearsight Advisors will host a Big Data Executive Forum on October 18, 2012 at the Ritz Carlton, Tysons Corner. The Forum will be a lively exchange focused on the future of Big Data investment, game-changing applications of Big Data and new business models resulting from cutting edge technologies. The Panel will be moderated by Gareth Herschel, Senior Big Data Analyst at Gartner and includes industry experts such as Nick Cayou, Senior Director, EMC/Greenplum; Arnab Gupta, Founder & CEO of Opera Solutions; Gus Hunt, CTO of the Central Intelligence Agency and Harry Weller, General Partner of NEA. The event will attract attention from commercial and federal Big Data companies and Big Data investment funds.
“Our event is designed to bring together industry leaders from both the commercial and government markets to discuss how Big Data can be leveraged within their organizations to provide real value, insight and actionable intelligence. There have been many events focused on the cloud and infrastructure around Big Data (Hadoop, etc), however our focus is on the application of Big Data tools to provide real and sustainable benefit,” said Gretchen Guandolo, Managing Director of Clearsight.
Everyday we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data. Enterprises are awash with ever-growing data of all types, easily amassing terabytes—even petabytes—of information. More than $15 billion has been spent on “Big Data” software firms specializing in data management and analytics. The Big Data industry is worth more than $100 billion and growing twice as fast as the software market as a whole. Attendees will hear from a panel of experts about where the Big Data market is going, the disruptive impact on the overall technology and data markets and what this means for investors, acquirors, governments and high growth technology businesses.
