About the Event:

We invite you to join part two of our three part Big Data series. Part one introduced us to all you need to know on the topic of Big Data. Now part two covers how businesses are using and can use Big Data. 

 

Scott Drummonds returns and is joined by Sai Chin Li of KPMG to show you how major businesses are utilizing Big Data to enhance their operations and are looking toward the future. Our two speakers will also highlight how ALL businesses can use information from their customers, social networking, digital sensors, and thousands of other sources to make and save lots of money.


Scott and Sai will also help us gain an understanding of how revenue is being increased and inefficiencies phased out through this process. Big Data may sound like a pure technology vehicle but in this part of the series we will be able to learn how this area is being utilized in every vertical from health care to manufacturing to finance to retail. These different sectors have gone through a similar process: understanding Big Data and implementing it.
