Strata Conference Wrap-Up
There’s nothing like a great conference to get ourselves and the rest of the world galvanized for action and ready to take on the big data and analytics challenges that are coming our way. We will certainly be talking about it over the next couple of weeks and sharing with you some of our insights on the conference and the trends that we not only talked about ourselves, but heard from other Strata participants.
As you may already know, the conference was sold out. However, Strata is featuring videos of all the keynote sessions. When you have the time you may want to listen to the keynotes—I did and they were interesting and quite often, inspiring.
Terence, as you know, was a presenter on Tuesday, talking about “Retail: Lessons Learned from the Original Data-Driven Business and Future Directions.” Along with that, he was interviewed by Mac Slocum, O’Reilly’s Online Managing Editor about future big data technology trends, what the large retailers and online big data companies, such as Google and Amazon, can learn from each other, how what they do will trickle down to empower smaller businesses, and the enormous impact mobile will have on what we like to call the concept of the virtual person.
Stay tuned and get ready—we are going to spend quite a bit of time talking about analytics from a business, technology, and even “for the greater good” perspective!
