The New Jersey Big Data Alliance (NJBDA), a partnership of the state’s higher education institutions dedicated to furthering NJ’s reputation as a leader in innovation and cutting edge technology, is holding a Big Data Conference on the campus of Montclair State University. “Current Trends in Big Data Analytics: What are Employers Looking For?” features Joe Caserta, president of consulting and technology innovation firm Caserta Concepts, and other thought-leaders in the big data analytics field.
The event takes place on Tuesday, December 2nd and is hosted by the School of Business at Montclair State University (SBUS). The conference examines current trends in big data analytics, business use cases and for students aspiring to enter the field, the skill sets needed for success. In addition to Joe Caserta, speakers include Steve LoSardo, Senior Principal at IMS Health, Pranay Agrawal, Co-founder and EVP of Fractal Analytics, and Melanie Murphy, Senior Director of Customer & Business Analytics at Bed, Bath & Beyond.
“Montclair State is excited to host the Big Data seminar as we, and all the members of NJBDA, recognize how important a field it is,” said Dr. Rashmi Jain, chair of the Department of Information and Operations Management at Montclair State University School of Business. “ The school is particularly pleased to have Joe Caserta, a noted authority in the field, here to speak from real world experience.”
