TDWI Solution Summit:
Big Data Analytics for Accelerated Business Advantage

Join an exclusive, hosted gathering of experienced professionals, industry thought leaders, and top solution providers for real-world tips and best practices to help you harness the power of big data analytics.

Big data analytics is about uncovering business opportunities. Many of the winners in today’s competitive markets get there—and stay there—by being superlative in how they analyze data, unearth new insights, and apply them to critical situations. Never before has so much data been available for business analysis, including internal, external, structured, and unstructured sources. Clickstreams from websites, social media, blogs and comments, contact center interactions, machine data, and enormous real-time event and transaction flows can be the raw material for innovative products and services. The key is to align technology, best practices, and analytic strategies with the business objectives your organization seeks to accomplish.

Big data analytics can enable organizations to make smarter decisions faster. By connecting sophisticated analysis of data with your organization’s people and processes in near real time, you can execute on decisions when it is most advantageous. However, analytics is only part of what you need. Good analytics for big data requires data architectures that meld together newer NoSQL technologies, including Hadoop, MapReduce, and more, with well-engineered relational data warehouses and business intelligence. Analytics also benefits from data visualization and data discovery platforms that make it easier for nontechnical users to grasp information insights.

By attending the TDWI Solution Summit for Big Data Analytics, you will learn about technologies and practices that can dramatically reduce, if not eliminate, delays in turning information into insight. You will hear case studies, expert sessions, and thought-leadership panel discussions about how to employ big data analytics to become a data-driven, proactive, and predictive organization.
