Learn what organizations really need to be successful with Big Data. SGI, along with industry thought leaders from Intel and MarkLogic, and end users such as NOAA and eBay will share insights around the following key questions facing us all on Big Data:

  • What is Big Data - really - and what does it mean to you?
  • What do I need to consider when building out a Big Data architecture?
  • How do I go beyond data analytics and start transacting against my data?
  • How can I keep costs under control in an environment where data is growing exponentially?

We'll discuss how you can build out your own big data architecture to better harness your data and expose key insights that will help you compete, innovate and meet your mission-critical objectives.
