The Shiny Objects Show
Mark Madsen and Marc Demarest, in their respective roles
as CIO and industry shill, take a humorous and pointed look
at some of the trends, buzzwords, and big ideas that fill
our lives and our inboxes and keep us up at night. Decision
management, memory-resident DBMS, cloud BI, predictive
analytics—no shiny object will escape their notice, as these
two jackdaws scour the landscape for the strategic, the
distracting, and the just plain silly. In case you enjoyed their
cockeyed take on big data, The Shiny Objects Show promises
to to be even more irreverent, controversial, and clarifying.
Water balloons and tomatoes will be handed out as you enter.

Big Data Maturity: Moving beyond Hadoop
Big data analytics is one of today's biggest market trends.
But it's still relatively early in the big data journey for most
companies. We created the TDWI Big Data Maturity Model
and Assessment to respond to requests from organizations
to understand how their big data deployments compare to
others in order to provide best-in-class insight and support.
The model provides a framework for companies to understand
where they are, where they've been, and where they still need
to go with their big data deployments.
This keynote presentation provides an overview of the big
data maturity model and the patterns that we see emerging
around big data deployments. And we'll discuss some best
practices that companies are using to move to the next stage.
We'll reveal research-driven insight on where companies stand
in terms of organization, infrastructure, data management,
analytics, and governance. We'll also describe a great
feature of the big data maturity model: the interactive online
assessment set to go live in October 2013.
