Big Data: Beyond the Buzz Word

Get ready for some more summer fun with a hot topic on Big Data.

Lets take a look at what Big Data means, and more importantly, means to you. How do you leverage the mountains of data from social media to external news and reports to your secure enterprise data - all of which are growing at an increasingly fast rate - to help you make better decisions faster? We\'ll EXPLORE:

-> All about Bid Data\'s volume, velocity, variety and value
-> The difference between Business Intelligence, Business Analytics, Big Data, and Data Warehousing
-> Overcoming the difficulties of turning structured and unstructured data into actionable analytics

Byte some light appetizers and get ready to ‘seize the big data’ with fellow WITI members and women in technology.
