Venue: The Michelangelo Hotel


In the information age, data comes from everywhere – your applications, systems, processes, customers, partners, the Internet of Things – and fuels every business decision you make.

But how do you integrate all that data to help make the right information available at the right time? How do you empower your business by identifying situations of interest as they occur – opportunities like customer interactions and process optimization, and threats like software exceptions and security breaches? And how do you put that information in the right hands, at the point of decision-making?

To gain a competitive advantage, firms are increasingly looking to analyse big data in real-time in order to achieve greater awareness and make more informed decisions. It’s no longer enough to just crunch the numbers; you need to do it at speed, often on-the-fly. Welcome to the world of fast data.
