Strata's Case Studies Show How Today's Tech Leaders Rode Big Data to Market Success

posted via Alistair Croll | @acroll

A decade ago, Google's PageRank algorithm transformed the face of the web, moving us from directories to relevance. Today, dozens of tech leaders are finding that Big Data is the key to their success. By processing masses of information on users, prices, traffic patterns, and trends, they're able to get ahead of the competition. How you bend data to your will is the difference between a failed startup and a breakout success.

Strata's case study track highlights the ways that innovators in a wide range of industries are putting data to work and giving their companies a competitive edge. In-depth tutorials will show you how you can put data to work in your organization.

Speakers who are presenting case studies you won't want to miss include:
