The V3 Big Data Summit in conjunction with Pentaho and Liaison Technologies is running from 3 to 5 November, featuring a mix of video webinars, research and editorial content on this intriguing topic.
Kicking things off we have a live video web seminar in conjunction with Pentaho to discuss the results of a survey of the V3 readership on their thoughts on big data, the challenges and opportunities it presents and what’s stopping them embracing its potential.
The event will feature insights from Pentaho’s EMEA director of enterprise solutions, Wael Elrifai, as well as Accenture Digital’s managing director, Nick Millman, so make sure you sign-up now for free to watch the event from 11am.
Pentaho has also provided some of its own research on the topic of big data in a series of whitepapers that are free to download as part of the summit.
Complementing this, the V3 team has produced its own content about big data, including why SMEs and charities shouldn’t ignore the benefits it can offer.
We also hear from Oxford University about its partnership with airline Emirates to create a data science lab to raise big data analytics skills and help organisations improve their operations as the amount of data being gathered soars.
We’ve also been to see a new big data visualisation observatory at Imperial College London that aims to offer more innovative, eye-catching ways to see data, helping firms make more sense of ever-growing data sets.
The summit kicks off from 11am with the webinar featuring Pentaho and Accenture offering their insights on how to ensure your business makes the most of the opportunity, so sign-up now to take part.
We’ll be using the hashtags #v3webinar and #bigdata throughout the summit so make sure you follow these on Twitter to see everything throughout the event.
