Keynote Address by Rod Smith (VP , Emerging Technologies, IBM): Delivering Big Data

 We all know that the world continues its break-neck pace of change, and how those changes are profoundly affecting the world around us. One of the easiest places to spot and understand the impact of such changes is in the field of information technology. We've already seen exponential growth in the amount of data generated year over year. Now we're starting to see acceleration in the form of data analytics--getting our arms around big data using advanced analytics software. In fact, we are starting to see a new generation of applications which ties disparate data and data sources into a cohesive whole...giving businesses a new and unique perspective on their markets, their operations, and their ecosystems.
