Big Data is a key enabler for the next wave of innovation and growth across all sectors. By combining data from multiple sources and channels and discovering actionable patterns of interest, a business can seize new growth opportunities in addition to realizing incremental levels of operational efficiency.

Early adopters have demonstrated the transformative potential of Big Data, but extracting value from Big Data is no ordinary task. Big Data management and analytics require a slew of advanced concepts, tools, and technologies and the required skills are hard to come by.  Companies have to overcome entrenched cultural barriers and must foster close collaboration among an interdisciplinary team of experts.

Join us as we hear from leading experts who have put analytics to action and charted out a new course of competitive advantage and growth for their companies.

This symposium will focus on pragmatic issues faced while deploying Big Data strategies to drive business success. It will have special focus on managing and analyzing the data captured through marketing, product development, manufacturing, distribution, sales, and service in a global setting.

Symposium attendees will gain keen insights and learn tips on identifying Big Data opportunities, developing business cases, and using analytics to drive business success.
