Beyond BI – Transforming Your Business with Big Data Analytics

Steven Hillion (EMC DCD)
Sponsored Sessions
Location: Murray Hill Suite B

Do you use all the information you should when you make your most important decisions? Is your organization prepared to go beyond BI to enable breakthrough insights and decisions that transform the way you do business?

Increasingly organizations realize that data intensive predictive analytics is a necessary tool for a company to compete and succeed – even if the organization has already deployed a full-blown BI and DW stack. Armed with advanced analytics insights, business users can make well-informed decisions to support their organizations’ tactical and strategic goals – and create competitive advantage.

Steven Hillion, VP of EMC Greenplum’s Data Analytics Lab lends insight into emerging technologies to take advantage of the big data opportunity and how big data challenges today’s BI architectures and approaches to data management.

This session is sponsored by EMC Greenplum
