Big Data Summit: 
You Have the Data, Now What?

Teams. Tools. Strategy.  Data Scientists are great, but we all know they don’t grow on trees. There are a plethora of solutions, but what tools are right for you? Oh yeah, then there is the policy governing all the data. And, at the end of the day, how are you going to use this data to drive decisions and make real change?  

You need to create an accessible, usable data strategy that gives you an advantage over your competitors. MassTLC is bringing together an impressive group of industry thought leaders to share insights into how to develop a meaningful usable big data strategy.

WELCOME & OPENING REMARKS 

Over the past 3 years, MassTLC has been leading the way in identifying the impact of big data in transforming entire industries and creating significant economic development opportunities. Over the course of the past eight months, MassTLC has brought together thought leaders to specifically address how big data is creating new opportunities within three key market segments/innovation areas: the Connected City; Healthcare; and Life Sciences.  We will kick-off our summit by releasing the findings from those reports, which we anticipate will inspire many more new and innovative solutions.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS

As a thought leader in the big data sphere, Paul Sonderegger, Big Data Strategist at Oracle, will share his insights  into why using data is critical to every business; and how organizations must learn not only how to access and process, but most important, how to execute.

HOW ARE THE LEADERS DOING IT?

How are data scientists accessing, storing, and processing the data? What tools and applications are most effective? What skill sets and traits do you need build an effective data science team? From IT to behavioral science to BI – the data science team is becoming the cornerstone of business intelligence.  We’ve brought together the folks who are making it happen to share their insights into how to make it work at our organization.

VENDOR FAST PITCH

Participating companies will each be given 2 minutes to ‘pitch’ their solutions to the big data challenges facing companies today.

EXHIBITS AND NETWORKING W/ BOXED LUNCH

PRIVACY & GOVERNANCE

Most agree that technology moves faster than policy. What happens on the policy level around privacy and security will have huge implications for big data.  What can policy leaders do to protect privacy issues of the consumer, while allowing technologists and analyst to deliver value through data analytics?

SOURCING THE NEXT BIG THING

The next big thing in big data may not be an application or device to be used for the data, but instead, the result of optimally leveraging data. Industries like security, healthcare, retail, and financial services will be redefined as data plays an integral part of business decision making. Presenters in this session will talk about how data has changed their outcomes and allowed them to reach new goals.


Who should attend?

Everyone who understands the power of big data and wants to ensure their organizations are leveraging that power, including those in:
  • Business Intelligence
  • IT strategy and purchasing
  • Product Development
  • Analytics
  • Data Science
