The Tools To Solve Your Big Data Problem


Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data — so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This data is big data.

Big data is a big deal, but do you understand it? Do you know what new capabilities and technologies are needed to capture and analyze big data? Do you know how to turn big data into a competitive advantage? For answers to these questions and more, please join us for this informative seminar.
