The eagerly anticipated agenda gives a snapshot of how this summit will take shape, with 6 industry and technical tracks running over two days. Leaders will gather in their masses, as the Westin St. Francis becomes a hub for all things Big Data.
"There's no doubt that Big Data is at the forefront of the agenda across all industries this year," said Michaela Jeffery-Morrison, International Events Director for IE. "There's a need to drive data driven strategies and this summit explores the innovations in place to do this."
In addition to keynote presentations, this summit will feature tracks exploring the increasing importance of Big Data technology across industries, with executives leading Big Data initiatives in Finance, Government and Healthcare sharing their experiences working within these fields. There will also be a technical track exploring the need for Hadoop technology, crucial for unlocking the vast amounts of unstructured data now available.
