2017 Annual Big Data & Business Analytics Symposium

The 2017 annual symposium on Big Data & Business Analytics will be held on March 23-24, 2017 at the Student Center Building at Wayne State University.

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

Symposium attendees gain keen insights and learn tips on identifying big data opportunities, developing business cases, and using analytics to drive business success. The symposium also seeks to provide a clear distinction between legacy analytics that are pervasive in industry and the emerging next generation tools, technologies, and processes that will form the foundation for a new wave of innovation and growth.
