TODAY! 3/28 - Delivering Value with Big Data and Agile

The session will investigate how big data can align with the concepts of Agile development to optimize delivery. Today information is bombarding us, but do we have the tools and process to truly enable businesses to derive value from their data assets. By using the Agile strength of collaboration, this approach provides attendees with the knowledge to run a project that enables the business with the variety of information along with the business insights needed to derive value from the information.

Join Ian Abramson and Gino Marckx for this session on March 28 at 1 EST.

Ian Abramson is an Oracle data warehousing expert with more than 20 years of experience and the past-president of the IOUG (Independent Oracle User Group). Ian is the director of the Enterprise Data Group for Thoughtcorp based in Toronto.
