The power of data lies in moving past countingthings to understanding things and these students and The Tuck Technology Conference clearly embrace the opportunities that lie ahead.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
It is said effectivey harnessing the power of data can be a game-changer for organizations while the act of extracting and applying information is the difference maker and agent for success.
According to a Gartner study* of more than 2,800 CIOs, we are entering a new phase of enterprise information technology, one where technology's contribution to the business is less about efficiency and effectiveness of process and more about new products, services and the discovery of new revenue streams. Furthermore, in a recent statement by IBM, the company confirmed they spent more than $24 billion in R&D and acquisitions to build their capabilities in big data and analytics, and have cultivated partnerships with more than 1,000 institutions of higher education to drive curricula focused on data intensive careers. This new world of big data means unprecedented opportunity for college and university undergraduate and graduate students to set a course to be an integral part of the changing business environment. To say that big data and higher education are a perfect match is an understatement.
As evidence, The Tuck Technology Club of the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth will hold its annual technology conference on October 31 to examine the challenges and opportunities of big data. The conference, 'Harnessing the Power of Data,' features Joe Caserta, president of Caserta Concepts, a New York-based technology innovation consulting firm specializing in big data analytics. The agenda also includes David Bartlett, CTO of GE Aviation and Meghan Verena Joyce, GM of Uber, along with other thought-leaders driving the use of game-changing data within organizations.
"Joe Caserta is recognized for his depth of experience and expertise as a leader in big data and providing advanced technology solutions to a wide variety of clients," said Steve Tsui, co-chair of the Technology Club at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. "Joe is the perfect fit for our club's annual Technology Conference as this year's theme is harnessing the power of data, with a focus on the potential of data analytics."
"It is an honor and a pleasure to address graduate students on their way to making their mark in the world," said Joe Caserta, founder and president of Caserta Concepts. "The power of data lies in moving past counting things to understanding things and these students and this conference clearly embrace the opportunity that lies ahead."
The conference begins at noon on Friday October 31 at Raether Hall on the campus of Dartmouth College. It brings together current students, faculty and industry thought-leaders to discuss key technology trends.
