Big Data Research Findings to be Presented May 21 at Big Data Boot Camp in NYC

Key findings from a new study, “Big Data Opportunities,” will be presented at Big Data Boot Camp at the Hilton New York. Big Data Boot Camp will kick off at 9 am on Tuesday, May 21, with a keynote from John O’Brien, founder and principal of Radiant Advisors, on the dynamics and current issues being faced in today’s big data analytic implementations. Directly after the opening address,  David Jonker, senior director of Big Data Marketing, SAP, will showcase the results of the new big data survey, which revealed a variety of practical approaches that organizations are adopting to manage and capitalize on big data. The study was conducted by Unisphere Research, a division of Information Today, Inc., and sponsored by SAP.

The Big Data Boot Camp conference will provide an intensive 2-day deep dive into the key issues that organizations of all sizes face as they move to define and implement their approaches to derive business value from big data. Attendees will hear from thought leaders and practitioners who will identify important emerging technologies and provide case studies and best practices for storing, managing, integrating, and delivering actionable analytics from big data.

“Information is data, and many companies are concerned about how the ‘big data management paradigm’ will impact, and/or disrupt their business model,” says Peter J. Auditore, the conference chair and principal, Asterias Research.

According to the Unisphere/SAP big data study, which was conducted in April, 2013, and garnered responses from several hundred data managers and professionals who subscribe to Database Trends and Applications magazine, a number of survey respondents’ companies are already seeing direct benefits from their big data efforts.

“This is a great opportunity for us to share important findings in the area of big data,” Jonker notes. “Everyone is collecting bits and bytes of data, but understanding it, and finding ways to use it in order to help your business grow, is the key to success.”
