The Future is Now – Harnessing Big Data!



We've been talking about big data for over a decade. The need for solutions to big data is here and now. We as an industry need to move forward in order to leverage big data to optimize analysis. Wearable devices that capture data in real time are becoming the norm. It is time to step up, find a solution for interoperability and devise new ways of analyzing data in real time. Big data information is rapidly approaching and it has become an overwhelming challenge in storing, handling, utilizing and analyzing and, most importantly, in realizing the value of it. Join us at our Single Day Event to collaborate and participate in the discussion of these challenges.
