News Flashes

A new conference called Big Data Insights: Finance is being launched this year, December 4-5, at the Hilton Stamford in Connecticut. According to conference organizers, financial services firms have been collecting, collating and harvesting data for years, and this conference is intended to help them find the right technologies to take advantage of those rich data assets. Banking has long been in data warehousing, but there are new opportunities that are bubbling up in terms of analysis of data, Diana Middleton, conference director, Finance & Investments, Institute for International Research, tells 5 Minute Briefing. "We are really hoping to create a forum where the business side of the house and the technology side of the house can get together and determine how best to use data, be strategic with it, and be able to generate revenue."
