Bridge to Data

A session at Strata New York 2012

Tuesday 23rd October, 2012

9:00am to 5:00pm (EST)

For CIOs, IT executives, and technology professionals, Strata’s Bridge to Big Data lays out the roadmap to get your organization up to speed on big data. In this all-day event, learn how to create big data strategy, manage your first pilot project, demystify vendor solutions and understand how big data differs from BI.

Bridge to Big Data will be chaired by industry experts Edd Dumbill (Program Chair, Strata), Mark Madsen (Third Nature) and John Akred (Accenture).


In most companies, the brief for big data will be given to those who already have responsibility for IT, business intelligence or marketing. But what happens after the CEO hands you the big data portfolio? While many big data problems will be familiar, there are also unique challenges and opportunities.

“Bridge to Big Data” combines hard-to-find real-world experience with an independent perspective and deep data know-how. Join us for an essential big data strategy workshop, tailored for CIOs and enterprise IT professionals.

Topics addressed will include:

The difference between big data and BI
Picking a test project and getting buy-in
Scaling up after your pilot project
Big data strategy: centralized or distributed
How to avoid creating competing big data efforts
Beating buzzwords: every vendor has “big data” solutions
How big data changes future IT planning and data architecture
