Unprecedented computing power and connectivity are bringing new layers of experience to our lives: a change that brings both opportunity and the challenge of new technologies and skills. The future belongs to those who understand how to collect and use their data successfully.
Strata Conference offers the nuts-and-bolts of building a data-driven business—the latest on the skills, tools, and technologies you need to make data work. The inaugural Strata 2012 event in London will focus on the core issues and opportunities that are specific to the European data community, as well as the most significant worldwide themes and players.
It's not just about faster and cheaper. Data is changing the definition of computing, infusing new layers of experience and understanding into our lives. Data presents fresh opportunities, and the challenge of new technologies and skills.
From mobile to cloud and beyond, powerful and readily available computing resources are fueling an explosion in our ability to create, consume, process, and package information. New techniques in data processing enable us to transform and analyze at scale, and with unprecedented agility. The intersection of technology, math, and entertainment gives us new ways to visualize, experience, and interact with a world of information.
From big data to augmented reality and beyond, Strata will be at the center of the way computing is changing for practitioners, enterprises, and the individual.
Strata is becoming the defining conference for the layered world of everything data.
