Big data, now a mainstream buzzword, is at its core a race to make sense of exponentially increasing amounts of information in daily life. From consumer spending habits to Web browsing preferences, from business intelligence to IT management, there is data to be gathered, analyzed, used, and sold. But what are the specific opportunities for startups, investors, and big companies? How are businesses using data and analytics for competitive advantage across retail, finance, marketing, mobile, and social media? And how are entrepreneurs building companies around emerging technologies and platforms?
Join Xconomy for a half-day conference as we explore these themes—and much more—in a series of interactive talks and panels featuring top leaders from Boston’s innovation community and beyond. Our speakers will tackle big questions around strategy, security, and real-world challenges. They will also discuss the ways in which big data has fundamentally changed the IT landscape, and its role in shaping New England’s technology future.
