Are you swimming or drowning in the sea of big data? Whether you’re doing the backstroke or sinking in it, the rate of data collection is growing. So how do you get from the tumultuous ocean of big data to a calm, quiet bay?

We will chart how to take the sea of data that organizations are collecting on individuals and transform it into meaningful drops of information. Take social media data, for instance. Businesses use Facebook, Twitter, and other social sites to measure opinions. A community manager, lets say, can use this data to track reactions to a new website and optimize a marketing campaign based on fans’ and followers’ comments.

Join our panel to learn how to:

  • Utilize the information you already have.
  • Leverage the technology. 
  • Fill the data scientist role in your organization.
  • Organize big data.
  • Make big data actionable.
