Jake Weatherly to speak at DataWeek on the impact of Big Data.


Jake Weatherly, co-founder and CEO of SheerID- a technology company that uses authoritative data to verify customer attributes- will be speaking at DataWeek about Big Data. Weatherly’s lightning talk, entitled Creative Ways to Benefit from Big Data, will draw upon his own experiences working with Big Data to create a technology that benefits not only retailers, but also consumers by giving them access to exclusive discounts and special offers. His presentation will include case studies that illustrate how using Big Data creatively can create big opportunities.

SheerID’s point-of-sale verification technology automatically, instantly confirms whether or not a consumer is a member of a special interest group, such as the military, first responders, teachers or college students. This allows retailers to gate their special offers and provide a discount upon verification.
