San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
The Big Data Group and Discern Advisors bring together five of the leading independent Big Data companies to discuss current solutions and market drivers. The invitation-only Big Data Landscape Conference 2013 will take place on Thursday September 12, 2013, at the new Hotel Zetta, San Francisco.
At the Conference, Dave Feinleib, of The Big Data Group, will launch his new book: Big Data Demystified. In this book, Dave makes Big Data approachable and exciting. At the conference he will discuss the profound ways that Big Data is impacting our day-to-day lives, from education to romance and personal health.
Big Data is moving into the mainstream and has gained the attention of a cross section of company executives, technologists and investors. In the last year, we have seen the IPOs of Splunk and Tableau, and major venture capital investments in companies like Cloudera and MapR. Companies like QlikTech and Recommind have been developing their products for over a decade and are now experiencing dramatic growth, as customers seek solutions for an often overwhelming amount of data.
"Today, mainstream news outlets are talking about Big Data, not just the tech media. Yet Big Data is often still discussed as a highly technical topic, which has limited the audience for it. We felt there was an opportunity to broaden the conversation around Big Data and make it accessible to a much larger audience," said Feinleib. The result is Big Data Demystified. "The book is our inspiration for this conference. We said, let’s bring in the companies that are meeting customer needs today and have them directly explain their products and use cases to an audience of thought leaders and investors," remarked Feinleib.
The Big Data Landscape Conference 2013 brings together executives from five of the leading independent Big Data companies: Splunk, QlikTech, Cloudera, MapR and Recommind. They will discuss the problems they are helping customers solve today, their product solutions and what’s driving market demand.
"These are the leading independent Big Data Companies, they are meeting customer needs today. They have raised substantial private and public capital, which they are deploying to build out their product suites and sales and marketing efforts," says conference co-producer Bill Long of DISCERN Advisors. "These five companies have scale and capital to remain market leaders as customer demand grows for more complex Big Data solutions."
