It's the Analysis, Stupid! Everything you ever wanted to know about Big Data

The MIT Sloan Club of Boston launches a presentation series on Big Data. Starting April 29, 2013 we will have industry and academic speakers regularly present the state of the art in Big Data. The April 29 presentation content is outlined here.

Description:   Big Data provides new opportunities for technologists, engineers, business leaders, and many others with interests in these areas.  Because of the increasing capabilities to access and process huge volumes of information and extract insights from it, we have the opportunity to drive change within organizations, improve the way people make decisions, and identify areas to advance existing research.  This session will touch on the following topics:

·        Illustrative examples of ways Big Data is being used in several industry verticals

·        What is Big Data and why it is important now

·        Key roles that are growing in demand as the big data wave continues to evolve

·        Evolution of emerging analytical tools and big data technologies

David Dietrich (@imdaviddietrich) is an Advisory Technical Consultant in EMC’s Global Education Services organization.   His focus areas include Big Data Analytics and Data Science.  Recently he co-developed EMC’s first course in the new Data Science curriculum, which is now sold on Amazon.
