Big data can include social media content, email, HTML pages, Instant Messaging logs, blogs, digital images, high-definition video files, surveillance footage, ecommerce transactions, call records and medical records, as well as datasets created by academic, scientific and research and development projects that process large volumes of information.
Companies analysing these huge volumes of data are concerned with risk protection and business intelligence.
Computing is hosting a debate on this issue, chaired by editor Abigail Waraker, along with a panel of key CIOs that will discuss strategic issues and address key questions, including:
• What are the challenges in managing and analysing increasing volumes of business data?
• How do you manage and deliver business value from unstructured data?
• What are the business advantages of harnessing big data effectively?
• How can you deliver better business intelligence tools to your end users?
• How can you convince the business of the benefits to the organisation?
The debate will provide you with an opportunity to speak frankly about how your business is managing this emerging business challenge and benchmark these practices against those of your peers.
Time and place
The debate will take place in our Studio Conference Suite, 4 November, 11.00am.
32-34 Broadwick Street
