San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 22, 2016 -- Structure Data, scheduled for March 9th and 10th at UCSF Mission Bay, will bring together the world’s top computer scientists, software executives and business users to discuss how advances in data technology are already reshaping our world—and why it’s only the beginning.
Data is so important today because the technologies are finally here to undertake real, meaningful data-driven business improvements. What began as a discussion about Hadoop, data volumes and cutting-edge web companies nearly a decade ago is now a discussion that touches business of every size and type. Artificial intelligence, predictive analytics, real-time processing and interactive business intelligence are here, and smart companies are already embracing them.
And they’re not adopting new data technologies just for the sake of doing it. They’re adopting new data technologies because customers are demanding it. The end product might be a smarter app, a connected devices, a better medical diagnosis or even a safer neighborhood, but data is the fuel that drives everything.
