Big Data Boot Camp is a 2-day intensive dive into the tsunami that has become Big Data. The advent of social media and its impact on “customer everything” has left many companies awash in a sea of Big Data that is difficult to collect, manage, and act on. Big Data is creating confusion in the IT industry and is expected to significantly increase IT spending in the BI and data warehousing market segments according to leading market research companies. Information is data, and many organizations are concerned about how this new “data management paradigm” will impact and/or disrupt their business model.

Participants will hear from a wide range of data and database experts including information architects, database consultants, innovators, legal experts, database and analytics vendors, and information technology professionals (peer practitioners) who are addressing

Many of the issues that Big Data encompasses today. Attendees will also learn about how organizations are leveraging Big Data for competitive advantage, where their smart data is and how they use it, and, most importantly, the legal issues associated with collecting, managing, and archiving Big Data.

—Peter J. Auditore, Conference Chair & Principal, Asterias Research
