It’s been said that 90 percent of the data that exists today was created in the last two years. That staggering growth presents opportunities to gain valuable insight from that data but also challenges in managing and analyzing the data. At the same time, new tools and technologies are emerging that go beyond (or build upon) Hadoop and NoSQL. Data management and analysis will never be the same.
Today, at our first-ever Big Data conference at Pier Sixty at the Chelsea Piers in New York City, we’re looking at what it takes to successfully capture and utilize your company’s data by talking to industry leaders. Our livestream of the event begins at 8:25 a.m. ET/5:25 am PT, and we will be live-blogging the onstage sessions throughout the day. Please join the conversation on Twitter (use the #bigdataconf hashtag).
