For CIOs, IT executives, and technology professionals, Strata’s Big Data for Enterprise IT lays out the roadmap to get your organization up to speed on big data. In this all-day event, learn how to create big data strategy, manage your first pilot project, demystify vendor solutions and understand how big data differs from BI.


In most companies, the brief for big data will be given to those who already have responsibility for IT, business intelligence or marketing. But what happens after the CEO hands you the big data portfolio? While many big data problems will be familiar, there are also unique challenges and opportunities.

This day-long program combines hard-to-find real-world experience with
an independent perspective and deep data know-how. Join us for an
essential big data strategy workshop, tailored for CIOs and enterprise
IT professionals.
